In the middle of anywhere two people sit
He's looking at her and she's looking at him
Inside the stillness, both locked down again
But, there's nothing to win
They're both losing again

He searches for words as a cigarette burns
How many times before one of them learns
She puts her hands through her hair
He shifts, and he turns, he says "I love you know..."
But, it comes out like a warning

She says, "I love you, too" as the smoke swirls above
"But, are we just familiar, or really in love?"
He says, "I'm trying to please you"
She says, "Don't try so much..." as her voice trails off
He swallows down hard


It's the little things keep breaking us down
It's the little things keep breaking us down
It's the little things keep breaking us down
Yeah, they're breaking us down...

Somebody's early, or somebody's late
Somebody's tired, someone made a mistake
Someone forgot, someone misunderstood
But, the intention was good...
But, so often we find
Always a step out of time
Like we're falling behind


He says, "Let me show you the things I still see"
"In all of my pictures, you're standing with me"
She says, "Do you think we're as strong, you and me"
"As strong as we need to be?"
"'Cause it seems like we should be..."
