  • They say I'm the spit of you
    And they're not wrong
    Bury my head too
    Stomach hurts all the time
    Can't shift it
    Been like that since eight
    Knotted up with the baggage
    Neck like a stone
    All sounds just like you
    Smashing cups off the floor
    And kickin' walls through
    That's me and you

    I can talk to anyone
    I can talk to anyone
    I can't talk to you
    I can talk to anyone
    I can talk to anyone
    I can't talk to you

    You kissed her forehead
    And it ran like a tap
    No more than four stone soaked wet through
    And I'd never seen you like that
    Spun me out
    Hurt me right through
    'Cause it was love
    In all its agony
    Every bit of me hurtin' for you
    'Cause one day that'll be your forehead I'm kissin'
    And I'll still look exactly like you

    And I can talk to anyone
    I can talk to anyone
    I can't talk to you
    I can talk to anyone
    I can talk to anyone
    I can't talk to you
    Hey

    And I can talk to anyone
    I can talk to anyone
    I can't talk to you
    And I can talk to anyone
    I can talk to anyone
    I can't talk to you
    Come on, hey Writer/s: Sam Fender
