Album: Broken Machine (2017)
  • You might kill me with desire
    Wind me tighter than a wire
    It's something that you do to me
    I run away like mercury

    And I know you think it's rough
    When you're try'na patch us up
    And I say honey what is love?
    You just say I drink too much

    Maybe I'm defective
    Or maybe I'm dumb
    I'm sorry, so sorry for what I've done
    Maybe I'm bad natured
    Or maybe I'm young
    I'm sorry, so sorry for what I've done

    And I'm the t-shirt that I wear
    Pick the thorns out of my hair
    I broke your heart so carelessly
    But made the pieces part of me

    And now it hurts what we've become
    'Cause you taught me how to love
    It's me who taught you how to stop
    And you just say I drink too much

    Maybe I'm defective
    Or maybe I'm dumb
    I'm sorry, so sorry for what I've done
    Maybe I'm bad natured
    Or maybe I'm young
    I'm sorry, so sorry for what I've done

    I've waited for this
    I'm ready for it
    I've waited for this
    I'm ready for it
    I been waiting so long

    I've waited for this
    I'm ready for it
    I've waited for this
    I'm ready for it
    I been waiting so long

    Maybe I'm defective
    Or maybe I'm dumb
    I'm sorry, so sorry for what I've done
    Maybe I'm bad natured
    Or maybe I'm young
    I'm sorry, so sorry for what I've done Writer/s: Conor Ryan Mason, Dominic Alexander Craik, James Lawrence Irvin, Joseph Langridge Brown, Julian Emery, Mike Crossey
