Baby you’ve got me thinkin’
Bout the things I left behind
A suitcase in Helsinki
Full of things I wanna set on fire

For I realise that you’ve been lying
And no matter how hard I try
I won’t be able to forget this
‘Cause this buried deep inside

Meaning what I left behind
What I left behind
Left behind
What I left behind

So I’m gonna fly back to Helsinki
and even stay there for a while
Gonna get my things back
Gonna get some fun
And drink til I pass out

Gonna jump on to the table
And dance my ass off til I die
And then I’ll hopefully forget you
And quit those nightmares I’ve been having

Every night, every day
It’s the same so hard to explain
1 million pounds won’t be enough
To make me stare back at your face

That’s what I left behind, left behind
What I left behind, left behind
Left behind, what I left behind
Left behind

Every night, every day
It’s the same so hard to explain
1 million pounds won’t be enough
To make me stare back at your face

Baby you’ve got me thinkin’
Baby you’ve got me thinkin’

Baby you’ve got me thinkin’
About the things I left behind
A suitcase in Helsinki
Full of things I wanna set on fire

I’m gonna jump on to the table
And dance my ass off til I die
And then I’ll hopefully forget you
And quit those nightmares I’ve been having

Every night, every day
It’s the same so hard to explain
1 million pounds won’t be enough
To make me stare back at your face (x2)

That’s what I left behind

    General CommentPretty sure it's "And /quit/ those nightmares i've been having"
    Awesome song, bit different from CSS but still good.

    I see this song as the obvious, getting over a break-up by going somewhere and basically having a good time, even if the relationship does still haunt them.

    General Commentha! thanks, dont really know i got that wrong, now that i listen to it again XD.

    I'm dissapointed at all the negative reviews about Donkey, while i agree it's not as good as their first album, they still are putting out very catchy, fun songs.

    I agree about the meaning of this song as well, getting over a relationship blah blah blah.

    General Commenti like donkey tbh.
    in fact, maybe i even prefer the new style. idk.
    but yeah, i think it's about forgetting an ex, the break up and the relationship.
    and the best way to do that of course is just to have a good time and not sit around moping. :)
    great song IMO.
