  • Tryna find a way to explain this
    Why you can't touch me tonight?
    I can feel you're getting impatient
    But I really can't let you inside
    Bad, how deep the pain is
    Or you just couldn't believe
    And yes I'm good on the surface
    But I'm a mess, I'm a mess underneath
    See winter took most of my heart
    And Spring punched right in the stomach
    Summer came looking for blood
    And by autumn, I was left with nothing

    It took a whole damn year to repair my body
    It took a whole damn year
    It took a whole damn year to repair my body
    It's been about five years
    Gon' take a long long year for me to trust somebody
    Gon' take long long year
    Gon' take a long long year for me to touch somebody
    It's been about five years

    Not tryna do this on purpose
    Boy I really wish I could
    Don't act like you never heard this
    I know you haven't misunderstood
    Where the others just wouldn't respect me
    Don't tell me you use well
    I thought we were heading for Heaven
    But you're about to take me back to Hell

    See winter took most of my heart
    And Spring punched right in the stomach
    Summer came looking for blood
    And by autumn, I was left with nothing

    It took a whole damn year to repair my body
    It took a whole damn year
    It took a whole damn year to repair my body
    It's been about five years
    Gon' take a long long year for me to trust somebody
    Gon' take long long year
    Gon' take a long long year for me to touch somebody
    It's been about five years

    It took a whole damn year to repair my body
    It took a whole damn year
    It took a whole damn year to repair my body
    It's been about five years
    Gon' take a long long year for me to trust somebody
    Gon' take long long year
    Gon' take a long long year for me to touch somebody
    It's been about five years

    Bad to the liver, bad to the bones
    Bad to the liver, bad to the bones
    Bad to the liver, bad to the bones
    It's been about five years Writer/s: Emeli Sande, Knox Brown, Mary J. Blige
