  • My mercury's in retrograde
    My mercury's in retrograde
    My mercury's in retrograde
    My mercury's in retrograde

    Mercury's in, Mercury's in, Mercury's
    In retrograde

    This is not the time, the time to start a new love
    This is not the time, the time to sign a lease
    Try not to worry about what's forgotten
    Try not to worry about what's been missed
    Scars on shins and scars on my knuckles
    Today I woke up in a basketball court
    Jonjo's in Sydney and he ain't returning
    I'm sitting in Soho trying to stay drunk

    In any bar in the world
    From Silverlake to Williamsburg
    You could pick another stranger
    And fall in love

    My mercury's in retrograde
    Mercury's in, mercury's in retrograde

    This is not the time, the tie to start a new love
    This is not the time, the time to sign a lease
    Try not to worry about what's forgotten
    Try not to worry about what's been missed
    Bleeding gums and veins protruding
    You're starting to hate all of your clothes
    Neumayr's in LA and she ain't returning
    I'm sleeping with people I don't even like

    In any bar in the world
    From Silverlake to Williamsburg
    You could pick another stranger
    And fall in love

    My mercury's in retrograde
    Mercury's in, mercury's in retrograde
    Mercyry's in, mercury's in retrograde

    When I saw you last night
    I wanted to say, run away with me
    Away from these cynics
    That this could be the start of
    Something truly real
    But all that I could say was "hey"
    Was hey
    Was hey
    Was hey

    My mercury's in retrograde
    Mercury's in, mercury's in retrograde
    Mercyry's in, mercury's in retrograde
    My mercury's in retrograde
    Mercury's in, mercury's in retrograde
    Mercyry's in, mercury's in retrograde. Writer/s: GORDON MOAKES, KELE OKEREKE, MATT TONG, RUSSELL LISSACK
