Afterglow

Album: Lover (2019)
Charted: 75
  • I blew things out of proportion, now you're blue
    Put you in jail for something you didn't do
    I pinned your hands behind your back, oh
    Thought I had reason to attack, but no

    Fighting with a true love is boxing with no gloves
    Chemistry 'til it blows up, 'til there's no us
    Why'd I have to break what I love so much?
    It's on your face, and I'm to blame, I need to say

    Hey
    It's all me in my head
    I'm the one who burned us down
    But it's not what I meant
    Sorry that I hurt you
    I don't wanna do, I don't wanna do this to you
    I don't wanna lose, I don't wanna lose this with you
    I need to say, hey
    It's all me, just don't go
    Meet me in the afterglow

    It's so excruciating to see you low
    Just wanna lift you up and not let you go
    This ultraviolet morning light below
    Tells me this love is worth the fight, oh

    I lived like an island, punished you with silence
    Went off like sirens, just crying
    Why'd I have to break what I love so much?
    It's on your face, don't walk away, I need to say

    Hey
    It's all me in my head
    I'm the one who burned us down
    But it's not what I meant
    I'm sorry that I hurt you
    I don't wanna do, I don't wanna do this to you
    I don't wanna lose, I don't wanna lose this with you
    I need to say, hey
    It's all me, just don't go
    Meet me in the afterglow

    Tell me that you're still mine
    Tell me that we'll be just fine
    Even when I lose my mind
    I need to say
    Tell me that it's not my fault
    Tell me that I'm all you want
    Even when I break your heart

    I need to say, hey
    It's all me in my head
    I'm the one who burned us down
    But it's not what I meant
    Sorry that I hurt you
    I don't wanna do, I don't wanna do this to you
    I don't wanna lose, I don't wanna lose this with you
    I need to say, hey
    It's all me, just don't go
