Lyrics

(Source: I Do Not Want What I Haven't Got)

The phone calls
Always left me unsure.
They'd never say things of their own accord.
I am preoccupied,
I can't them out of my mind,
They are terrified.
And if you said, "jump in the river," I would
Because it would probably be a good idea.
You're not supposed to be here at all,
It' s all been a gorgeous mistake.
Sick one or clean one,
The best one
That God ever made.
When I kissed you,
You didn't mind.
I thought I tasted of too many cigarettes,
But you tasted like wine.
And I'm not going to change my mind
Just because of what they said.
The worms has laid eggs in their hearts,
But not in my head.
And if you said, "jump in the river," I would
Because it would probably be a good idea.
You're not supposed to be here at all,
It' s all been a gorgeous mistake.
Sick one or clean one,
The best one
That God ever made.
There's been days like this before, you know,
And I liked it all,
Like the times we did it so hard
There was blood on the wall.
And if you said, "jump in the river," I would
Because it would probably be a good idea.
