lyrics

That’s not affection coming through your screen
Our love needs reciprocity
I’ll pick you up at your apartment if you can manage to escape
Well, we didn’t get invited but we’re going anyway
I wonder if they’ll let us both in...

I’ve been there once: those people ain’t right
They talk with their thumbs even when they’re in plain sight
Yeah that’s what they’re like when they don’t want you around
They can tell you to fuck off without making a sound
I’m not anyone’s price to pay
I don’t love that what doesn’t love back
Leave me where you found me

Do we know what the cost is if we don’t even know what’s lost?
If we keep on throwing out anything real?
How much you wanna bet all the kids at the fête
Will be standing in a circle with the same drink
And they won’t be saying a thing?

Well, I’ve been here twice: these people ain’t right
They talk with their thumbs even when they’re in plain sight
Yeah that’s what they’re like when they don’t want you around
They can tell you to fuck off without making a sound
I’m not anyone’s price to pay
I don’t love that what doesn’t love back
Leave me where you found me

Well, I’ve been here twice (maybe the third time’s a charm?)
But those old clichés keep doing me harm
Yeah that’s how they are when they don’t want you around
They can tell you to fuck off without making a sound
I’m not anyone’s price to pay
I don’t love that what doesn’t love back
Leave me where you found me
