One or the other

One of my favorite songs because I fell in love with the lyrics when I first heard it. Since I keep listening to new songs on YouTube, other music blog posts or Soundcloud, I don’t usually remember the source. There are times when some song comes along at the very appropriate time and you are hearing almost the same words that run through your mind. The singer’s voice is so soft and full of emotions that it pulls you in.

Singer/Band: Lauv (or Ari Jeff)

Lyrics from MetroLyrics

Like a spotlight the water hits me
Ran it extra cold to shake the words from my mouth
Though I know that no one’s listening
I nervously rehearsed for when you’re around
And I keep waiting like you might change my mind

Who wrote the book on goodbye?
There’s never been a way to make this easy
When there’s nothing quite wrong but it don’t feel right
Either your head or your heart, you set the other on fire

Back and forth now I’m feelin’ guilty
Cause I just can’t stop this pendulum in my head
Though I know that our time is ending
I’d rather lay forever right in this bed

And I keep waiting like, you might change my mind
Give me one more night

Who wrote the book on goodbye?
There’s never been a way to make this easy
When there’s nothing quite wrong but it don’t feel right
Either your head or your heart, you set the other on fire

No one knows, knows, knows. No one knows, knows, knows.

We fell from the peak
And the stars, they broke their code
I’m trying to forget
How I landed on this road
I’m caught in between
What I wish and what I know
When they say that you just know

Who wrote the book on goodbye?
There’s never been a way to make this easy
When there’s nothing quite wrong but it don’t feel right
Either your head or your heart, you set the other on fire

No one knows, knows, knows. No one knows, knows, knows.

You set the other on fire. You set the other on fire.

Posting it for this week’s Song Lyric Sunday.
