lyrics

Let's not bother looking back at summer nights in shining armour
This is me still wishing hard for your departure
This restless mind struggles to find thoughts I meant
So stay with me

I never thought you'd stay
I hope he breaks your heart someday
I'm sick of everything that's changed
A waste of time - you wasted mine
I'm wasted now for the millionth time
Don't you start like "we've grown apart"
That's not something that I can control

Why do you look so scared?
Your skin is electric
And what did you have to say?
I'm trying to forget this

You can't live up to this image that's in my head
Stop looking back - looking back to the past
If you met your former self would it all be clear?
You can't live up to this image that's in my head
What can I feel? Can I feel you again?
Just one last time before my mind let's go...

(Looking back) (Who's that?)
(Are you lost in your head or are you lost in the past?)

Why do you look so scared?
Your skin is electric
And what did you have to say?
I'm trying to forget this

Drop the beat! Do your knees feel weak?!
Listen as my tongue just speaks and speaks
These words of passion like waves are crashing
Underneath these bitter, broken teeth
So yeah, your skin is made of porcelain?
And my veins are made of clockwork parts
Everything I've seen was altered
By the influx of my heart

Why do you look so scared?
Your skin is electric
And what did you have to say?
I'm trying to forget this
