“Suspended”

23 December 2009

By Matt Nathanson (Beneath These Fireworks)

You lead me, fit around my tongue
It’s so easy to forget that I’m lost
Spent all of my life waiting for answers
To lift me, to numb me, to define it all

Sunshine, I’m beginning to like this

‘Cause all I want to be is the minute that you hold me in
When you pretend that I’m all that you waited for
Time slips to nothing and I’m better than I’ve ever been

I’m suspended
You’re breathing, filling up my lungs
I can almost believe that I’m almost enough
Spent all of my life empty of anthems
Bracing for something that never did come

Sunshine, I’m beginning to like this
Sunshine, I’m beginning to like it

‘Cause all I want to be is the minute that you hold me in
When you pretend that I’m all that you waited for
Time slips to nothing and I’m better than I’ve ever been
I’m suspended

It’s not enough to stay surrounded
It’s not enough to stay awake,
Torn, and braced, cornered
And not feel alive

Sunshine, I’m beginning to like this
Sunshine, I’m beginning to like it

‘Cause all I want to be is the minute that you hold me in
When you pretend that I’m all that you waited for
Time slips to nothing and I’m better than I’ve ever been
I’m suspended
