Wash it go, over me and gone
Just in passing by, watching you
Would you know
Would you know the subtle stare, from only where

And just as far away as I can feel

How do we

Would you know
 lovers forcing then

Barely even friends, 
barely ever friends

How can we make love to someone else

And then turn away, and then say, I hate your fucking guts
How do we turn away and say, I hate you now

One day I will run into your face

And to roundabout, turn away still in grief

I hope we will share smiles of a favourite friend
That we once had, because I feel, I feel this

Because we once shared the fire
, the fire that we shared

My favourite memory will always be

When we stood in the sand, with our fingertips in the ground

It would've been the first time that I said, that I want you

I said that I love


Still, I’m struggling to see where that feeling arouse

Was it mine I create, or was it real sharing then
Still, I’ll try to forget the things that I said, when I yell

I was following, yes I was following

My messy head
My messy head
My messy head
My messy head

Still I’m following
My messy head
My messy head
My messy head

Still I'm following
My messy head, my messy friend

It’s good at best, not the rest
