Don't Take The Money

  • Somebody broke me once
    Love was a currency
    A shimmering balance act
    I think that I laughed at that
    And I saw your face and hands
    Coloured in sun and then
    I think I understand
    Will I understand?

    Will we fight, stay up late?
    In my dreams I'm to blame
    Different sides of the bed
    Roll your eyes, shave my head
    Now we're stuck in the storm
    We were born to ignore
    And all I got is a chance to just sit
    (I'm in love and you've got me, runaway)

    You steal the air out of my lungs, you make me feel it
    I pray for everything we lost, buy back the secrets
    Your hand forever's all I want
    Don't take the money
    Don't take the money

    I slept on my own those nights
    Was still in my parents house
    And I cut off my t-shirt sleeves
    And claim a new continent
    'Til I saw your face and hands
    Covered in sun and then
    I think I understand
    Will I understand?

    Will we fight, stay up late?
    In my dreams I'm to blame
    Different sides of the bed
    Roll your eyes, shake my head
    Now we're stuck in the storm
    We were born to ignore
    And all I got is a chance to just sit
    (I'm in love and you've got me, runaway)

    You steal the air out of my lungs, you make me feel it
    I pray for everything we lost, buy back the secrets
    Your hand forever's all I want
    Don't take the money
    Don't take the money
    You steal the air out of my lungs, you make me feel it
    I pray for everything we lost, buy back the secrets
    Your hand forever's all I want
    Don't take the money
    Don't take the money

    When you're looking for your shadow
    Standing on the edge of yourself
    Praying on the darkness
    Just don't take the money
    Dreaming of an easy
    Waking up without weight now
    And you're looking at the heartless
    Just don't take the money

    You steal the air out of my lungs, you make me feel it
    I pray for everything we lost, buy back the secrets
    Your hand forever's all I want
    Don't take the money
    Well, don't take the money (I'm in love and you've got me, runaway)
    You steal the air out of my lungs, you make me feel it
    I pray for everything we lost, buy back the secrets
    Your hand forever's all I want
    Don't take the money
    Don't take the money

    Just don't take the money
    Just don't take the money
    Just don't take the money
    Just don't take the money Writer/s: JACK ANTONOFF, ELLA YELICH O'CONNOR
