Aftertaste

  • Hold me like nobody else does
    Do I get the best of your love?
    Even when our bodies are drunk
    Is it me you're stumbling from?
    Forget the words that you said
    With your fingers spell out my name
    Take away the sky in our breath
    Remember love is a game, love is a game

    Don't break, don't fade
    While we're not real, we're never too late
    Make time, it won't hurt
    Said I'll go now, but you said it first

    I know there's nothing that I can do to make you stay
    But one thing I know that will always remain
    And that's the aftertaste
    The aftertaste
    The aftertaste
    The aftertaste
    The aftertaste

    In the midst I'm seeing your face
    And I can't believe this is fake
    Blow the blossom into your room
    As you throw me in disarray
    There's a button that I need to press
    There's a face that I need to kiss
    Come on, give me your heart and your head
    Make you conscious never resist, never resist

    Don't break, don't fade
    While we're not real, we're never too late
    Make time, it won't hurt
    Said I'll go now, but you said it first

    I know there's nothing that I can do to make you stay
    But one thing I know that will always remain
    And that's the aftertaste
    The aftertaste
    The aftertaste
    The aftertaste
    The aftertaste

    I know there's nothing that I can do to make you stay
    But one thing I know that will always remain
    And that's the aftertaste
    The aftertaste
    The aftertaste
    The aftertaste
    The aftertaste
    The aftertaste
    The aftertaste
    The aftertaste
