Two Seconds Flat

from Am I Talking to You? by Emma Hill

lyrics

I’ll take two steps back if you meet me in the middle. Come to terms with the fact that you love me just a little. I’m a firecracker you can watch me burn. I can light up the night, but we might get hurt. Don’t say you didn’t hear it from me. I might fly like a bird, but my heart ain’t free. I’m still stuck playin’ this same old deck. It’s all hopeful hands and risky bets. And it can take all day. To climb up to the top you gotta risk it all. And it’s a long way, but it’s only two seconds flat when you fall. We spent the summer being lonely together. ‘Cause even in sorrow company is better. We drank and we cried ‘til we both near drowned. Now I know it’s time to put the bottle down. Don’t say you think you know better than me. I’m a grown ass woman and I know what I need. Twenty nine years may not seem real long, but the years are always longer when they’re already gone. And it can take all day. To climb up to the top you gotta risk it all. And it’s a long way, but it’s only two seconds flat when you fall.
