All Your Exes

Album: Not in Chronological Order (2021)
Play Video
  • I know where you've been, what you've done
    Who you loved is a part of who you are
    But that maturity ship sails when I hold you in my arms
    There's a spot on your chest just for me, it's personally addressed
    And anyone there before me should be a criminal offence

    When your friends tell stories about 2017
    I know there's parts that they leave out to be considerate of me
    Wish I could be blissfully unaware of where you used to put your mouth
    And who you write your fucking songs about

    I want to live in a world where all your exes are dead
    I want to kill all the memories that you save in your head
    Be the only girl that's ever been in your bed
    I want to live in a world where all your exes are dead

    I want to live in a world where there's no exes at all
    Like you were waiting for me to be the first thing you fall for
    The only girl that's ever been in your bed
    I want to live in a world where all your exes are dead

    Please don't tell me if I accidentally stumble
    Into something that reminds you of her
    No, I don't need your previous logistics
    Where you spent your last Christmas
    Spare your past life specifics, oh

    And when your friends tell stories about 2023
    I hope they hardly can recall there was a you without a me
    Wish I could be blissfully unaware of the history in your couch
    And who your songs all used to be about

    I want to live in a world where all your exes are dead
    I want to kill all the memories that you save in your head
    Be the only girl that's ever been in your bed
    I want to live in a world where all your exes are dead

    I want to live in a world where there's no exes at all
    Like you were waiting for me to be the first thing you fall for
    The only girl that's ever been in your bed
    I want to live in a world where all your exes are dead

    Don't tell me to make nice, that I should try to empathize
    I'm confident I've got them accurately demonized
    You tell me not to worry, I'm the only thing you see
    Well, yeah, I fucking better be

    I want to live in a world where all your exes are dead
    I want to kill all the memories that you save in your head
    Be the only girl that's ever been in your bed
    I want to live in a world where all your exes are dead

    I want to live in a world where there's no exes at all
    Like you were waiting for me to be the first thing you fall for
    The only girl that's ever been in your bed
    I want to live in a world where all your exes are dead
