We sit in the car outside your house
I can feel the heat coming 'round
I go to put my arm around you
and you give me a look like I'm way out of bounds
well you let out one of your bored sighs
Well lately when I look into your eyes
I'm goin down

We get dressed up and we go out, baby, for the night
We come home early burning, burning in some fire fight
I'm sick and tired of you setting me up
Setting me up just to knock-a knock-a knock-a me down

I pull you close but when we kiss I can feel a doubt
I remember back when we started
My kisses used to turn you inside out
I used to drive you to work in the morning
Friday night I'd drive you all around
You used to love to drive me wild
But lately girl you get your kicks from just driving me down.

    General Commenti had this on my itunes for about a month and id heard it a few times undoubtedly but i just ignored it

    recently i properly listened to it for the first time and i think its utterly amazing. Florence and kid harpoons voices work so perfectly together and its a lovely upbeat version of the song

    I think the lyrics speak for themselves, its about losing taht loving feeling basically.
    ive had this on non stop repeat for days!
