  • Thursday night
    Everything's fine
    Except you've got that look in your eye
    When I'm telling a story and you find it boring
    You're thinking of something to say
    You'll go along with it, then drop it
    And humiliate me in front of our friends

    Then I'll use that voice that you find annoyin'
    And say something like, "Yeah, intelligent input, darlin'
    Why don't you just have another beer then?"
    Then you'll call me a bitch
    And everyone we're with will be embarrassed
    And I won't give a shit

    My fingertips are holding onto
    The cracks in our foundation
    And I know that I should let go
    But I can't
    And every time we fight I know it's not right
    Every time that you're upset and I smile
    I know I should forget, but I can't

    You said I must eat so many lemons
    'Cause I am so bitter
    I said, "I'd rather be with your friends, mate
    'Cause they are much fitter"
    Yes, it was childish
    And you got aggressive
    And I must admit that I was a bit scared
    But it gives me thrills to wind you up

    My fingertips are holding onto
    The cracks in our foundation
    And I know that I should let go
    But I can't
    And every time we fight I know it's not right
    Every time that you're upset and I smile
    I know I should forget, but I can't

    Your face is pasty
    'Cause you've gone and got so wasted
    What a surprise
    Don't want to look at your face
    'Cause it's making me sick
    You've gone and got sick on my trainers
    I only got these yesterday
    Oh my gosh, I cannot be bothered with this
    Well, I'll leave you there 'til the mornin'
    And I purposely won't turn the heating on
    And dear God, I hope I'm not stuck with this one

    My fingertips are holding onto
    The cracks in our foundation
    And I know that I should let go
    But I can't
    And every time we fight I know it's not right
    Every time that you're upset and I smile
    I know I should forget, but I can't

    And every time we fight I know it's not right
    Every time that you're upset and I smile
    I know I should forget, but I can't

    And every time we fight I know it's not right
    Every time that you're upset and I smile
    I know I should forget, but I can't Writer/s: Kate Marie Nash, Paul Epworth
