  • You said, "Darlin', will we go the distance?"
    It's such blissful ignorance
    Couldn't hit more like a bolt from the blue
    And hate me if you're gonna hate me
    But just say it plainly, with everything lately
    I just need the truth
    (Bring it back)

    We go together like bad British weather on the one day I made plans
    So go hell for leather and know that it's out of my hands
    Go ahead now

    'Cause I cried all the summer away
    Ooh, you left me waiting on a heartbreak
    I just cried all the summer away
    Now, I'm drunk and screaming your name
    Ooh, and I will show myself out
    Ooh, I know I adore you
    I don't need you now

    I said, "Darlin', will we go the distance?"
    As I stood there, pouring my heart out with you just completely unfazed
    And you said, "Scarlett, I don't need to be responsible for everything you're feeling
    Your emotional grim reaper, I feel bad for you
    I can't entertain these games, hate to rain on your parade
    It's just the way I'm feeling
    It's just the way I'm feeling"

    'Cause I cried all the summer away
    Ooh, you left me waiting on a heartbreak
    I just cried all the summer away
    Now, I'm drunk and screaming your name
    Ooh, and I will show myself out
    Ooh, I know I adore you
    I don't need you now

    Ooh, ooh, ooh
    Ooh, ooh, ooh
    Ooh, ooh, ooh
    I don't need you now
    Ooh, ooh, ooh
    Ooh, ooh, ooh
    Ooh, ooh, ooh

    'Cause I cried all the summer away
    Ooh, you left me waiting on a heartbreak
    I just cried all the summer away
    Now, I'm drunk and screaming your name
    Ooh, and I will show myself out
    Ooh, I know I adore you
    I don't need you now Writer/s: Holly Ffion Humberstone, Robert James Milton
