lyrics

"Begging for forgiveness from someone you used to own
it's funny how your darkest hour is the sweetest one you've known
my giving days are over, you're on your own this time
but if you ever need a friend, then the privilege is mine.

If you want a reason not to stay
then I've got a thousand words to say
but you know they're never going to leave my mouth
so you might as well just stick around
but maybe you were right all along
maybe I am the lucky one
everything you got when you gave it away
just another reason not to stay

One more time for good luck I've been practising for days
and re-working my sentences but they just get paraphrased
and if it wasn't for all the overacting I think I might have believed it
but in honesty, your performance was something of an underachievement

If you want a reason not to stay
then I've got a thousand words to say
but you know they're never going to leave my mouth
so you might as well just stick around
but maybe you were right all along
maybe I am the lucky one
everything you got when you gave it away
just another reason not to stay
you gave it away

too willingly for it to be convincing
with the artificial sadness and the over-done wincing
and maybe I was fortunate to miss out on the drama
they called it "good luck" but I saw it as karma

If you want a reason not to stay
then I've got a thousand words to say
but you know they're never going to leave my mouth
So you might as well just stick around
but maybe you were right all along
maybe I am the lucky one
everything you got when you gave it away
just another reason not to stay

I guess I just must have been felling brutal
I guess you just must have been being a bore
but now in actuality I can finally see that I'm not the lucky one anymore."

about

Why We Love Bristol, UK

Sibling-fronted indie pop band from Bristol. They exploded onto the Bristol scene in May 2014 with their début single 'Patina', and found their feet playing sold-out shows with Wolf Alice, Slow Club & Teleman.

Instantly recognisable for their charming brand of sparkly guitar pop, bittersweet lyrics and blood harmonies, all showcased in energetic live shows.

Music to make you dance, sing and cry.
