lyrics

Get a load of me drifting out to sea
And young enough to be in my twenties
I’m definitely gonna make a plan
to get out while I can

So if you’re coming put your
Hands in mine or up where I can see them
So you’re not the type but
You said you loved me once and even
If it was with your fingers crossed
I know you know

I feel like I rush everything
Like I crush everything
Feels like I crush everything
Like I rush everything
And Like I owe you one
Just for keeping your head on.

Strapped in by skin so tight it pinches
Are your wrongs and rights
All stacked up in to feet and inches
I’ve got to try if it takes all night
To bring you back to life

So if you’re coming put your
Hands in mine or up where I can see them
So you’re not the type but
You used to love me once and even
If it was with your fingers crossed
I know you know

I know you tell lies
When you’re looking down
the barrelof my eyes
but my taste for the truth knows
its only our faults that are fool proof
So night after night
I hold myself up to those bright lights
So you can see right through
And that I tell them too
So its all right
To pick a fight and start a battle
By now I only shake you cause you rattle
You’ll agree if you’re coming with me I am

Old enough to be in my twenties
And definitely gonna make that plan to get out while I can
So if you’re coming put your
Hands in mine or up where I can see them
So you’re not the type but
You know you loved me once and even
If it was with your fingers crossed
I know you know

I feel like I rush everything
Like I crush everything
Feels like I crush everything
Like I rush everything
And Like I owe you one
Just for keeping your head on.
