Night Shift

  • The first time I tasted somebody else's spit
    I had a coughing fit
    I mistakenly called them by your name
    I was let down, it wasn't the same

    I'm doing fine
    Trying to derail my one track mind
    Regaining my self-worth in record time
    But I can't help but think
    Of your other in the bed that was mine

    Am I a masochist
    Resisting urges to punch you in the teeth?
    Call you a bitch and leave?
    Why did I come here? To sit and watch you stare at your feet?
    What was the plan? Absolve your guilt and shake hands?

    I feel no need to forgive but I might as well
    But let me kiss your lips so I know how it felt
    Pay for my coffee and leave before the sun goes down
    Walk for hours in the dark feeling all hell

    Don't hold your breath
    Forget you ever saw me at my best
    You don't deserve what you don't respect
    Don't deserve what you say you love and then neglect

    Now bite your tongue
    It's too dangerous to fall so young
    Take back what you said
    Can't lose what you never had

    I feel no need to forgive but I might as well
    But let me kiss your lips so I know how it felt
    Pay for my coffee and leave before the sun goes down
    Walk for hours in the dark feeling all hell

    You got a nine to five, so I'll take the night shift
    And I'll never see you again if I can help it
    In five years I hope the songs feel like covers
    Dedicated to new lovers

    You got a nine to five, so I'll take the night shift
    And I'll never see you again if I can help it
    In five years I hope the songs feel like covers
    Dedicated to new lovers

    You got a nine to five, so I'll take the night shift
    And I'll never see you again if I can help it
    In five years I hope the songs feel like covers
    Dedicated to new lovers Writer/s: Lucy Dacus
