lyrics

I wish that you didn’t look good

I don’t feel ashamed to say it though I probably should
I know how that sounds

But fortitude’s a luxury and luck’s not got much time for me

So I’ll keep it quiet

And dream of starting a forest fire again

I wish that I didn’t like this

I don’t think I took advantage but I probably did
You know what I’m about

But in my defence I’m not that genuine

I don’t profess to be a gentleman

It’s not rocket science

And when you see what I’ve done you’ll have my head

There’s still a counterfeit in my wallet

I’ve been holding onto it in case

I find myself having trouble sleeping

I’ll take comfort in knowing what to look for in a fake

I wish that you didn’t run off

You don’t think it’s a big deal but it definitely was
Now I know just what you’re like

But in your defence, I guess, I knew the deal
Your recklessness was part of the appeal

So just keep your silence

And I’ll keep using you as my excuse

I’m scared of the sight of myself sometimes
Knowing just what I’d do with hindsight
There must be a way to make a run for it
A clear way that I could see the benefit
Of putting a stop to this synthesised mind

There’s still a counterfeit in my wallet

I’ve been holding onto it in case

I find myself having trouble sleeping

I’ll take comfort in knowing what to look for in a fake


There’s still a narrative on your ribcage

It’s never looked as good as new

So when you catch yourself in the mirror you’re reminded that you used me just as much as I used you
