Sometimes I wish I was you back then
So I could see it all when it happened
Get it out my head things that you said
"Never loved you more."
"I never loved you."

Three bedroom house for your bones
"It's not your fault, we're all kind of alone"
Get it out your head lies that I told:
"Never loved you more, I never loved you."

"I don't feel like talking
I just feel like lying here
But I'm alright."
Yeah I'm okay with lying to your face

Suck his tongue in a photobooth
Luck is dumb, I'm not blaming you
But I saw you on the street writing a message to me
"That's what they'll all say - I never loved you"

"But I don't feel like talking
I just feel like lying here
But I'm alright."
Yeah I'm okay with lying to your face
But something tells me you're not listening anyway
I don't feel like talking
I just feel like lying here

I never said I was sorry
Oh, Skinny Arms come kill me
Whatever happened to you?
A blunted fringe to see through
Whatever happened to you?

"But I don't feel like talking
I just feel like lying here
But I'm alright."
Yeah I'm okay with lying to your face
But something tells me you're not listening anyway
I don't feel like talking
I just feel like lying here

I never said I was sorry
But I wish I was you back then

    Song Meaning"Sometimes I wish I was you back then."
    "The pop banger! I like it's drive and momentum. I like that it's still a little weird. I think it's about having a fight. And not wanting to talk about it. But it could be about a million other things. It's probably the cheeriest thing on the record, even if it's still a bummer. If you love that crazy, million-pedalled, supersonic, bent guitar sounding thing just after the first chorus then cool, thanks. That was my idea."
