Tight Space

from by Nate Bakkum



used to think
I had this
in hand
figured out

don’t know how
we got here
squeezed in
this tight space

I ought to know
to take control
to cover you

want to run
build with you
stretch out
feel the day

here I stand
I’m frozen
locked in
this tight space

I’ve gone away
out of control
I’ve let you down

choices that I've made
under pressure
things I've left undone
out of time
questions I have raised
left unanswered
only one remains
