lyrics

SHUTTING DOWN
by Derek Bishop

I’ve been mourning the possible upcoming situation I can’t control
’Cause every warning is a little bit more numbing knowing you’re not invincible

For so long, so long, I was afraid to be strong
Maybe, baby, it’s time, it’s time we stopped pretending that’s fine

So you’re ignoring my possible outpouring, ’cause it’s just one more thing to digest
Then you’d get stuck worrying about how I’m enduring, you’re frustrated and I’m depressed

’Cause you don’t, you don’t listen to what I want
And maybe, baby, it’s time, it’s time we stopped pretending that’s fine

I can feel you shutting down
Shutting down my love, my love, my love
I can feel you shutting down
Shutting down my love

I’ve seen the facts and I’ve acknowledged their existence
It’s a battle that no one wins
Every now and then I get a little distance
But for you, love, it never ends

You’re so strong, so strong, you won’t admit when you’re wrong
Maybe, baby, that’s fine, but it’s time to stop pretending you’re fine

I can feel you shutting down
Shutting down my love, my love, my love
I can feel you shutting down
Shutting down my love

It’s time we stopped pretending it’s fine
It’s time I started speaking my mind

We know the rules, the signs, the situations
We know we’re fools pretending we can beat them
We know the rules, we know the limitations
We have the tools, it’s our time to defeat them

But I won’t stop, baby, fighting and fixing this failing
I won’t stop, baby, fighting and fixing this failing

We know the rules, the signs, the situations
We know we’re fools pretending we can beat them
We know the rules, we know the limitations
We have the tools, it’s our time to defeat them

I’ve been mourning the possible upcoming situation I can’t control
