Clementine

  • I'd like to tell you that my sky's not blue, it's violent rain
    And in my world, the people on the street don't know my name
    In my world, I'm seven feet tall
    And the boys always call, and the girls do too
    Because in my world, I'm constantly, constantly havin' a breakthrough (hmm)
    Or a breakdown, or a blackout
    Would you make out with me underneath the shelter of the balcony?

    'Cause I don't need anyone
    I don't need anyone
    I just need everyone and then some
    I don't need anyone (I don't need anyone)
    I don't need anyone (I don't need anyone)
    I just need everyone and then some (I just need everyone and then some)

    Wish I could see what it's like to be the blood in my veins
    Do the insides of all of my fingers still look the same?
    And can you feel it too, when I am touchin' you?
    And when my hair stands on ends, it's saluting you
    The blush in your cheeks says that you bleed like me
    And the 808 beat sends your heart to your feet
    Left my shoes in the street so you'd carry me
    Through a breakdown
    Through a breakdown or a blackout
    Would you make out with me on the floor of the mezzanine?

    'Cause I don't need anyone
    I don't need anyone
    I just need everyone and then some
    I don't need anyone (I don't need anyone)
    I don't need anyone (I don't need anyone)
    I just need everyone and then some (I just need everyone and then some)

    My face is full of spiderwebs, all tender yellow blue
    And still with one eye open, well, all I see is you
    I left my daydreams at the gate because I just can't take 'em too
    Know my heart still has a suitcase, but I still can't take it through

    I don't need anyone (I don't need anyone)
    I don't need anyone (I don't need anyone)
    I just need everyone and then some
    I don't need anyone (I don't need anyone)
    I don't need anyone (I don't need anyone)
    I just need everyone and then some (I just need everyone and then some)

    I don't need anyone
    I don't need anyone
    I just need everyone and then some
    Oh-mmm, oh-mmm (yep) Writer/s: Ashley Frangipane, Jasper Sheff, Johnathan Cunningham
