CHARLOTTE – Nervous Lyrics

Nervous by CHARLOTTE


Suffocated, what a mess I made of it
So frustrating, all these wrong steps that I’ve taken
Patiently waiting for the tension to break me
So tired of shaking, I can feel my energy fading

I’m conflicted, overthinking
Never felt as though we fitted
All the running ’round in circles
Had me contemplating, drifting
Now I’m stressing over feelings that I never knew existed
And, darling, I’m beginning to realize

I still get nervous below the surface
When you’re in the room
Like my body forgets its language
All because of you

Frozen phrases, why do words seem to fail me?
Oh, I can’t face it, it really hurts being guilty

And I’m stressing over feelings that I never knew existed
And, darling, I’m beginning to realize

I still get nervous below the surface
When you’re in the room
Like my body forgets its language
All because of you
I still get nervous below the surface
When you’re in the room
Like my body forgets its language
All because of you

Cold sweats and baited breath
I keep on whistling, whistling in the dark
Move on, there’s nothing left
I keep on whistling, whistling in the dark
Cold sweats and baited breath
I keep on whistling, whistling in the dark
Move on, there’s nothing left
I keep on whistling

I still get nervous below the surface
When you’re in the room
Like my body forgets its language
All because of you

(I still get nervous below the surface)
Baby, I, oh no, no
(When you’re in the room)
I still, I still
(Like my body forgets its language)
I forget, oh yeah
(All because of you)
All because of you, woo
