  • I was on a heavy tip
    Try'na cross a canyon with a broken limb
    You were on the other side, like always
    Wondering what to do with life

    I'd already had a sip
    So I'd reasoned I was drunk enough to deal with it
    You were on the other side, like always
    You could never make you mine

    And with one kiss
    You inspired a fire of devotion that lasts for twenty years
    What kind of man loves like this?

    To let me dangle at a cruel angle
    Oh, my feet don't touch the floor
    Sometimes you're half in and then you're half out
    But you never close the door

    What kind of man loves like this?
    What kind of man?
    What kind of man loves like this?
    What kind of man?

    You're a holy fool, all colored blue
    Red feet upon the floor
    You do such damage, how do you manage?
    Trying to crawl in back for more

    And with one kiss
    You inspired a fire of devotion that lasts for twenty years
    What kind of man loves like this?

    What kind of man loves like this?
    What kind of man?
    What kind of man loves like this?
    What kind of man?

    But I can't beat ya, 'cause I'm still with ya
    "Oh mercy", I implore ("oh mercy", I implore)
    How do you do it? I think I'm through it
    Then I'm back against the wall

    What kind of man loves like this? What kind of man? Writer/s: Florence Welch, John Hill, Thomas Hull
