lyrics

Turn off the lights
And baby, come back to bed, don’t leave
Keep me company
Oh, these summer nights
Are far too long and far too lonely
Without you here
Just stay
Just reconcile with me

I’m running through a thousand lines
Trying to find a suitable lie
Hoping to convince you it’s fine
That I don’t want to be yours, I just want you to be mine

You’re stuck in my head
Like a simple and saccharine melody
Wish you were here physically
But you’ve up and left
Though your touch and your taste are still lingering
I know they’re just fantasies
You’re just teasing
Just keeping me on a leash

Maybe I’m drunk; my words tripping over my tongue
Perhaps my heart’s sunk a little to deep in this love
But your rhythms and rhymes play on a loop in my mind
Your rhythms and rhymes play on a loop in my mind
Are you playing my game? Or am I the one being played?
I’m losing my cool - resorting to tired clichés
We’re breathing in time; but is it by chance or design?
We’re breathing in time; but is it by chance or design?

I’m running through a thousand lines
Trying to find a suitable lie
Hoping to convince you it’s fine
That I just want to be yours, I don’t mind if you’re not mine

Your rhythms and rhymes play on a loop in my mind
