lyrics

I haven’t known you for all that long but when you
Leave this room and let go of my arm I can’t
Help but feel that I’m missing something good..
You have wrapped yourself around me darling
And you have claimed your drawer in my apartment
I protest but you laugh it off ‘cause you know you’re welcome.


But darling I need you, but I need you to hold back.


‘cause If I can’t start loving myself what good will I be to anyone else
As a lover I would be a disaster.


And you pressed your fingers into my neck
And dragged my bones right back to bed
And convinced me, oh I have no reasons to worry.
But I, I’ve heard those words from girls before
And when the bills and bailiffs start blocking our front door
They’d look at me with so much pity and say:
Did you really think your love alone
Would be enough to keep me living in your home
Did you really, oh I thought that you knew better
I thought that you said that you were clever.


But darling I need you, but I need you to hold back.


‘cause If I can’t start loving myself what good will I be to anyone else
As a lover I would be a disaster.


And if I can’t find the strength myself to put my shoulder
To the wheel like everyone else,
As a lover I would be a disaster.
