100 Letters

Album: Hopeless Fountain Kingdom (2017)
  • How can Midas put his hands on me again?
    He said "one day I'd realize why I don't have any friends"
    I find myself alone at night
    Unless I'm havin' sex
    But he can make me golden if I just showed some respect

    But I don't let him touch me anymore
    I said "I'm not something to butter up
    And taste when you get bored
    'Cause I have spent too many nights on dirty bathroom floors
    To find some peace and quiet right behind a wooden door"

    He said "please don't go away"
    He said "please don't go away"
    I said "it's too late"
    I said "it's too late"
    He said "please don't go away"
    He said "please don't go away"
    I said "it's too late"
    I said "it's too late"

    And now I can't stop thinking that I can't stop thinking
    That I almost gave you everything
    And now the whole thing's finished and I can't stop wishing
    That I never gave you anything

    You wrote 100 letters just for me
    And I find them in my closet in the pockets of my jeans
    Now I'm constantly reminded of the time I was 19
    Every single one's forgotten in a laundromat machine

    But I don't let him touch me anymore
    I said "I'm not something to butter up
    And taste when you get bored
    'Cause I have spent too many nights on dirty bathroom floors
    To find some peace and quiet right behind a wooden door"

    He said "please don't go away"
    He said "please don't go away"
    I said "it's too late"
    I said "it's too late"
    He said "please don't go away"
    He said "please don't go away"
    I said "it's too late"
    I said "it's too late"

    And now I can't stop thinking that I can't stop thinking
    That I almost gave you everything
    And now the whole thing's finished and I can't stop wishing
    That I never gave you anything
    And then I can't stop thinking that I can't stop thinking
    That I almost gave you everything (I said it's too late)
    And now the whole thing's finished and I can't stop wishing
    That I never gave you anything

    He said "please don't go away"
    He said "please don't go away"
    I said "it's too late"
    I said "it's too late"
    He said "please don't go away"
    He said "please don't go away"
    I said "it's too late"
    I said "it's too late" Writer/s: Ashley Frangipane, Eric Frederic
