[Verse 1]
Slow is the memory
I can picture her standing right in front of me
Saying that I'm behaving badly
And kinda driving her crazy
But I know she wants me

Can't remember anything
Her sweat it tastes like sugar cane
Sitting on top of me
Yelling out my fucking name
Until I'm empty

[Chorus]
But I have already tried to explain myself
It's not that I love someone else
But I can't bear to listen to you cry
I'm sick of all these wasted years
A rag for someone else's tears
I wring you out as I hang you out to dry

[Verse 2]
And I'll see you when I get back
Maybe we can get ourselves back on the right track
You touch me there because you know how much I like that
I think that we will get to relax
And I know you want me

All the time and everywhere
A happy surface but the underbelly isn't there
And the worst thing is that I don't even really care
And the emptiness is too much to bear
C'mon c'mon

[Chorus]
But I have already tried to explain myself
It's not that I love someone else
But I can't bear to listen to you cry
I'm sick of all these wasted years
A rag for someone else's tears
I wring you out as I hang you out to dry

[Bridge 2x]
C'mon, c'mon
Get off the phone
Please come home
It's been so lonely since you've been gone
Engulf, surround me
Up and down me
Be all around me
Baby I can't breathe no more

[Chorus Repeat 2x]
