Grounds for Resentment (feat. Olly Alexander)

Lyrics

Grounds for Resentment - Kele Okereke/Olly Alexander

At the table we're polite

 

I make a joke but it falls flat

 

Silence falls where laughter daily used to blow

 

Your job is fine your friends are cool

 

You will make me work for you

 

Bitter medicine's exactly what I need

 

Before I know I left you bruised

 

But when I catch your old perfume

 

It takes me back to nights of passion in your room

 

You've made an effort with your hair

 

It's not for me I do not dare

To think that I'm the one you dress for anymore

 

Slow down

You don't care to remember

 

Slow down

 

You mean to pay me dust

When I caught your eye

 

I could tell the flame was far from gone

 

Am I wrong

 

When'd you call me up this morning

 

Well your voice is like a knife

 

I must like the way it hurts me every time

 

Please forgive me if it seems

 

Like I'm trying to conceal

 

What is happening to us or how I feel

 

I think I'm angry and I'm sad

I kept your T-shirt and your cap

 

All this evidence is surely looking bad

 

What do you think about me still

 

Are you happy and fulfilled

 

Well I always had a cut that doesn't heal

 

Slow down

 

You don't care to remember

 

Slow down

 

You mean to pay me dust

When I caught your eye

 

I could tell the flame was far from gone

 

Am I wrong

 

Slow down

 

You don't care to remember

 

Slow down

 

You mean to pay me dust

 

When I caught your eye

 

I could tell the flame was far from gone

 

Am I wrong
