lyrics

Blink twice if you need it
I’m just an afterthought
Running at the walls at my feelings
I know that you mean it
And now the summer time’s
Gonna roll around you’re not leaving

I don’t wanna know why you don’t go
Taken by the hand still moving slow, you told me (You told me, ha)
I don’t really know where, where I’m to go (Where I’m to go)
Everyone is moving and now I’m in the corner

Don’t you second guess yourself
You recognise it
I never took you to be so short-sighted
Knowing how to make demands
You can deny it
Feeling optimistic yet so short-sighted, no

Yeah, hey, yeah, hey

Blink twice if you need it
I’m just an afterthought (Afterthought, ha)
Running at the walls at my feelings
I know that you need it
And now the summer time’s (Summertime, ha)
Gonna roll around you’re not leaving

I don’t wanna know why you don’t go
Everyone is moving and now I’m in the corner

Don’t you second guess yourself
You recognise it
I never took you to be so short-sighted
Knowing how to make demands
You can deny it
Feeling optimistic yet so short-sighted no

Yeah, hey, yeah, hey
So short-sighted, no
Yeah, hey, yeah, hey

Tryna work it out what you know
You’ll always make it alone
It’s always clearer from the outside you know
Tryna work it out what you know
You’ll always make it alone
It’s always clearer from the outside you know

Don’t you second guess yourself
You recognise it
I never took you to be so short-sighted
Knowing how to make demands
You can deny it
Feeling optimistic yet so short-sighted
Don’t you second guess yourself
You recognise it
I never took you to be so short-sighted
Knowing how to make demands
You can deny it
Feeling optimistic yet so short-sighted, no

Yeah, hey, yeah, hey
So short-sighted, no
Yeah, hey, yeah, hey
