I smell heartbreak on my hands
I feel sick to my stomach as I begin to stand
I see your outline in my bed
In the same spot I watched him rest his head

I've done you wrong, I regret it
I write this song, tryin' to forget it
I feel this emptiness in my chest
It feels surreal, but I’m feeling stressed
I need to do something
I fucked up, for nothing
Now I gotta just tell someone
Tell someone what I've done

Please bathe me now, wash me clean
Just set my heart on fire
Like gasoline
Bathe me now, wash me clean
Just set my heart on fire
Like gasoline
Oh no, like gasoline

I wake up, the morning after
You call but I don’t answer
And I can’t look you in the eye
No matter how hard I try
You deserve a forever
Not a boy looking for better
But as long as you’re still here
I’ll try to keep you near

Please bathe me now, wash me clean
Just set my heart on fire
Like gasoline
Bathe me now yeah, wash me clean
Just set my heart on fire
Like gasoline

(Like gasoline)

Please bathe me now, wash me clean
Just set my heart on fire
Like gasoline
Bathe me now yeah, wash me clean
Just set my heart on fire
Like gasoline

Bathe me now, wash me clean
Just set my heart on fire
Just like gasoline

    General CommentThis may be way off, but I think this song is about troye cheating on his boyfriend with someone else
    "I see your outline in my bed
    In the same spot I watched him rest his head"
    "Him" being another guy and "your" being his boyfriend
    "I've done you wrong, I regret it...I fucked up, for nothing"
    Troye regrets it

    "I wake up, the morning after
    You call but I don’t answer
    And I can’t look you in the eye
    No matter how hard I try
    You deserve a forever
    Not a boy looking for better
    But as long as you’re still here
    I’ll try to keep you near"

    Troye is saying his boyfriend deserves someone who wants him but troye was just looking for someone better so that's why he cheated
