  • No flask can keep it
    Bubble up and cut right through
    But you're someone I believe in
    You heat me like a filament
    Anytime you're in the room
    But you burned me and I'm smoking

    I just wanted you to watch me dissolve, slowly
    In a pool full of your love
    But I don't even know how the chemistry works
    When you're poolside
    Kicking in the dirt, kicking in the sand
    And stirring up trouble

    Can't find an exit
    I wander in a maze alone
    If I find you will you shock me?
    Left, left and right, right
    Pretty sure that I've been here before
    And it isn't what I wanted

    I just wanted you to watch me dissolve, slowly
    In a pool full of your love
    But I don't even know how the chemistry works
    When you're poolside
    Kicking in the dirt, kicking in the sand
    And stirring up trouble

    Your voice like an angel
    Been chain smoking all month long
    Like you're someone I believe in
    Am I only a lab rat?
    Someone you can test things on?
    This isn't what I signed up for

    I just wanted you to
    I just wanted, wanted
    I just wanted you to
    I just wanted, wanted

    I just wanted you to watch me dissolve, slowly
    In a pool full of your love
    But I don't even know how the chemistry works
    When you're poolside
    Kicking in the dirt, kicking in the sand
    And stirring up trouble

    I just wanted you to watch me dissolve, slowly
    In a pool full of your love
    But I don't even know how the chemistry works
    When you're poolside
    Kicking in the dirt, kicking in the sand
    And stirring up trouble

    I just wanted you to watch me dissolve
    I just wanted you to watch me dissolve, slowly
    I just wanted you to watch me dissolve
    I just wanted you to watch me dissolve, slowly Writer/s: Curtis Williams, Henry Burrell, James Varner, Jonathan Visger
