Kindred Shins
Now playing

Lyrics

She Floats Like The Witch

V1

Strayed into the mayhem with a hand that never wins,
A slave to all the cravings and the haven that it brings,
Slowly our behaviour turns to traitor then to sin,
And I saved it, saved it, saved it from giving in.
Disguise your lies as alibis and show them what you’ve learnt,
Lay them on a bed of lies and claim that they’re the first,
Plagiarise your kind goodbyes and no one will get hurt,
Well I hate it, hate it, hate it for what it’s worth

Chorus

Make me believe that I’m not acting like a fool,
And I don’t want to you but I do

V2

I may not meet your mater and she may not never know,
I’m not a secret or your saviour or a problem that you’ll solve,
We can’t let love and hatred know cos they’ll only get involved,
And I’ve waited, waited, waited though no one knows

Chorus

Make me believe that I’m not acting like a fool,
And I don’t want to want you but I do

Middle eight

And the letter that I left on the cabinet read,
“Can’t show my face if I’m hanging my head
So I’ll be swinging from the rafters of the roof instead,
Cos the weight of my mind is too much for my neck,
And if love means pain in its little own way,
From the very first glance to the very last shame,
Well instead I shoulda said what the content meant,
I guess it all ends in tears again”

Outro

I can’t keep being the one who’s always waiting,
When I just want to be free
