Flesh Without Blood

Album: Art Angels (2015)
  • Ooh, ah-ah
    Oh, ah-ah

    You claw, you fight, you lose
    Got a doll that looks just like you
    Remember when we used to say (we used to say)
    "I love you" almost every day

    I saw the light in you
    Going out as I closed our window
    You never liked me anyway

    Aye yeah, aye yeah
    Yeah, I don't see the light I saw in you before
    And no, I don't
    And no, I don't
    And no, I don't care anymore
    (Now you'll never know)

    Baby, believe me
    And you had every chance
    You destroy everything that you know (that you know)
    (Uncontrollable)
    If you don't need me
    Just let me go

    You hate, you bite, you lose
    After all, I just don't like you
    It's nice that you say you like me (you like me)
    But only conditionally
    Your voice, it had the perfect flow
    It got lost when you gave it up though
    'Cause you want money, you want fame

    Aye yeah, aye yeah
    Aye, I don't see the light I saw in you before
    And no, I don't
    And no, I don't
    And no, I don't care anymore
    (Now you'll never know)

    Baby, believe me
    And you had every chance
    You destroy everything that you know (that you know)
    (Uncontrollable)
    If you don't need me
    Just let me go

    Ooh, ooh
    Ooh, ooh
    Ey, ey, sing along, baby
    Then your heart beats on this sad song
    Underground, underneath me
    And the big things we could've had
    Ey, ey, oh no
    (Then your heart beats underground now)
    (Now you'll never know)

    Baby, believe me
    (Then your heart beats underground now)
    And you had every chance
    You destroy everything that you know
    (Then your heart beats underground now) (Uncontrollable)

    If you don't need me
    (Then your heart beats underground now)
    Just let me go
    (Then your heart beats underground now)
    (Now you'll never know)

    Baby, believe me
    And you had every chance
    You destroy everything that you know (that you know)
    (Uncontrollable)
    If you don't need me
    Just let me go
    (Then your heart beats underground now)
    (Now you'll never know)

    Ah
    (Then your heart beats underground now)
    Ah
    (Uncontrollable)
    Ah
    Ah, ah ah ah Writer/s: Claire Elise Boucher
