[Sneezing and Coughing sounds]
(There is no known cure for the common cold!)

You said let's go on a break
Sounded a little bit fake
Sounded like you just
Wanted to go on a date

Well you don't need my permission
There's no point for me to keep
Wishing you were more, more, more

You're a world class liar
I am a town crier
Try to drag you higher
But the stars, they fracture

And now I'm piecin' together
A puzzle of your face
But the part for your heart
It never fits into place
Oh place

Love is a turbulent sea
Are you scared to swim with me?
Swim past the fishermen's nets that have already tried
To trap you and me

I remember when you said,
"There are plenty of other fish in the sea,"
You said "If this is love, then the current will,
Bring you back, bring you back to me."

(Bring you back to me)

Feeling a certain shame
Let myself be treated this way
No, this won't happen again
Not over my dead body

Like two dumb dogs walking in circles,
Got a feeling
Was I just chasing
The wrong tail?

Oh

Well it's better having your head stuck up your ass
You can't sail

He said "You don't appreciate me"
Like a bastard on heat
Two weeks I couldn't eat
But I made my pain discreet.

Wouldn't sit the exams
You wanted me to take
I'm above all your games
This shark won't fall for your bait

Plenty of fish in the sea
But I just wasn't hungry

Love is a turbulent sea
Are you scared to swimming with me?
Swim past the fishermen's nets that have already tried
To trap you and me.

I remember when you said,
"There are plenty of other fish in the sea,"
You said "If this is love, then the current will
Bring you back, bring you back to me."

(Bring you
Bring you back
Bring you back to me)
