lyrics

SHOES

Waiting for you is like
watching grass grow
rather tie a brick to my leg and try swimming

cast the net I go (i go)
to the ocean (i go)
but all I seem to get is scrapings
of what you could be

the potential I see in you
is like a foot in the snow sees a shoe
you could love me like you do
but the holes in you just like that shoe
wont doooooo wont dooooooo doooooo

you fell from your staged grace
into my empty space
you were the one I thought who'd come and drink my port
you'd leave your clothes and shoes (leave your clothes and shoe)
I'd clear a draw for you (clear a draw for you)
it's nice to have you here
but i wont be around to see your grey’s appear

been waiting here for you (so long)
have I just said to you (be gone)
been down this road before (you know)
and I know that time shown that this love just wont
doooooooooooooooooooo dooooooooooo
(while you're wondering and waiting I'm slowly fading)

I wont settle for whatever lands on my plate (ahhhhh)
with a plastic smile when I'm feeling shit say im great (ah ah ah)
he said she said "yeah I love you too"
when the chips are down I'll be there for you (ahhhhhh)
when I look to my side for my statue
you've crumble down and that just (that just that just)
no that just (that just that just)
wont dooooooooo




Wonder what I ‘ve missed
Too many boxes to tick
Have I set the bar so high only a dream could reach (only a dream could reach)
Moving on on our own
Should I settle or be alone
Perfection is impossible but a blind eye now will see later


been waiting here for you (so long)
have I just said to you (be gone)
been down this road before (you know)
and I know that time shown that this love just wont
doooooooooooooooooooo dooooooooooo

I wont settle for whatever lands on my plate (ahhhhh)
with a plastic smile when I'm feeling shit say im great (ah ah ah)
he said she said "yeah I love you too"
when the chips are down I'll be there for you (ahhhhhh)
when I look to my side for my statue
you've crumble down and that just (that just that just)
no that just (that just that just)
wont dooooooooo

I…. don’t want to settle for what's on my plate oh x 4
