Healy – Back on the Fence Lyrics

Back on the Fence Lyrics – Healy

I am back on the fence again

Okay, yeah okay
Okay, yeah I’m okay
I’m just back on the fence

I’m moving backwards in slow motion
I should be wiser, but here I am again
Slipping on frozen moments
I know they’re not for me
So I creep

Maybe if I’m staying for a moment I will feel loved
But maybe it’s all for nothing
Maybe if I’m staying ’til the morning I will feel something
I’m back on the fence

Another week
Another year
Eventually I’ll disappear
It’s easy to fight it
Out of sight out of mind it
I’m sleeping through sirens again
I’m back on the fence

Splitting hairs like atoms
And I can’t fathom this will-o-the-wisp
Spinning in vicious circles
Wondering when I’ll give in again
All my friends would say there’s more to this
There’s more to this than
Skipping stoned, tripping home
My back on the fence
I’m back on the fence
I’m back on the fence

Another week, another year
Eventually I’ll disappear
It’s easy to fight it
Out of sight out of mind it
Run from my fears
I’m tethered in heather grays and evergreens
I’m inside out or in between
I’m in a daze, it’s just a phase
Said the same thing just last weekend
