lyrics

Verse 1
Oh wait wait wait wait wait
I never said I didn’t want you
Oh stay stay stay stay stay
How many times I’ve said to you
Don’t say say say say say
We never had it anyway
It’s just I hate hate hate hate hate
The way I always hide from, hide it all, from you

Chorus
You didn’t have to break your back
You didn’t have to save yourself if you knew
You’re skeptical without a cause
And your courage fails to constitute the truth

And I know it’s been a while
But your eyes hold me still
You’ll never know I miss you,
Cos even if I’d kissed you,
You’d still let them shoot you

Verse 2
Oh wait wait wait wait wait
These bones of mine won’t dissipate
Oh stay stay stay stay stay
The night will fade, I wish you’d wait
Don’t hate hate hate hate hate me
Because I sometimes riddle you
Always wait wait wait wait waiting
I didn’t want to run too soon, to you

Chorus
You don’t have to break yourself
You don’t have to run into the flame
You don’t have to bring them down
You don’t have to wear that crown and bear the shame

And I know it’s been a while
But your eyes hold me still
And oh god knows I’ve missed you,
Even if I kissed you,
You’d still let them shoot, you

There’s a light at the centre of everything in everything I do
