​State of Things

This song is by Matt Simons and appears on the album Catch & Release (2014).

We don't talk
No confrontation at all
Been building tension up high like a wall
So that explains the state of things

We still touch
You're making love like a crush
I feel your heart barely beating for us
Yeah, that explains the state of things

How many tears can we hold until somebody blinks?
And how many holes can we put in this boat till it sinks?
Till it sinks

We can try to ignore
It just comes back for more
It won't go away
Go away

So tell me how long we can both carry on in this state
State of things

We got stuck
This fading love's not enough
With no direction, straight out of love
Yeah, that explains the state of things

How many tears can we hold until somebody blinks?
And how many holes can we put in this boat till it sinks?
Till it sinks

We can try to ignore
It just comes back for more
It won't go away
Go away

So tell me how long we can both carry on in this state
State of things

Alone in the night
Though you're still by my side
Nobody's wrong
But I know this ain't right

So tell me how many tears can we hold until somebody blinks?
And tell me how many holes can we put in this boat till it sinks?
Till it sinks

We can try to ignore
It just comes back for more
It won't go away
Go away

So tell me how long we can both carry on in this state

State of things
