Lyrics:
Lately Iʼve been sleeping alone on my own again
Just me in an empty room on a single bed
Iʼve been trying all this time just to see
All the reasons you had given just to leave

Why am I so bitter about you babe
I donʼt understand
Was I trying to cash in the fantasy without the reality check
But I never wanted you to lie to yourself about happiness
When all you were was just a little lonely

Latching on to love like a moth to flame
But what are we gonna do when the embers start to fade
I donʼt mean to mess with the master plan
But when you put out the fire Iʼll just start it again
I guess Iʼll have to keep my distance for your defence

Pull me out of focus keep me in the queue
Iʼm a tired lover wilting hours in the waiting room
Embrace the silence when thereʼs nothing left
You got no room for demons when youʼre self-possessed

Why am I so bitter about you babe
I donʼt understand
Every time youʼre out in the sunshine Iʼll just sleep through it
But I never wanted you to lie to yourself about happiness
When all you were was just a little lonely
And all you wanted was the company

Whyʼd you let me go
When you still wanna know
How much I care, if Iʼd still be there
Whyʼd you set me free
If you need the sympathy
Come as you are, my tongue is undone

Was I spoilt for love
Have you had enough
Wait out the danger
You donʼt have to ask
This maudlin moment
Will soon come to pass
