lyrics

Lyrics:

Isla warned me you would always let me down / You were nice when we were rhyming / You built a life when I was floating on your back / And married a man just like me

Now all these unfinished songs that I send in secret / Take me back, take me back / Oh how I wish that I wish I could have you back / But Isla warned me you would always let me down / You were nice when we were rhyming

Oh once in our lives we grow these lungs made of limes / And we sink farther from the surface above me / But you sank farther as my head and hands filled with water / I was just a boy with needs

And you built a life when I was floating on your back / And married a man just like me

Now all these unfinished songs that I send in secret / Take me back, take me back / Oh how I wish that I wish I could have you back / But Isla warned me you would always let me down / You were nice when we were rhyming / Yeah you were nice when we were rhyming
