lyrics

You and I have only just met, but I feel like you're
Going to be a big part of my life
We're going out, we're travelling
Not a day apart it seems

When we first met we went off like a rocket and it
Felt like co-dependency
But pretty soon we're living in each other's pockets and they
Start to fray at the seams

You are my crutch, you are my rock
And you help me settle down from all of life's little shocks
And wherever you go, I'll never be too far away
Yeah let's just stay, in bed today

We spent five years seeing each other every day
I was in a tough spot but you weren't too far away
You helped me out, you gave relief
I thought it was a selfless deed

I start to feel like I resent, the grip you had was only manageable at best
Not going out not travelling
And sometimes I could scream

You were my crutch, you were my rock
You helped me settle down from all of life's little shocks
And wherever you go, I'll never be too far away
But not sure I'll stay, in bed today

You brought me down, needled at me
You knocked my confidence and now it seems that
This is neither to nor fro, I think it's time that I should go
You brought me down, to my knees
Sometimes I hate what's left of me
I know this shame I feel it each and every single day
But I'm trying hard to forgive
Just leave me alone let me live

'Cause I don't need no crutch, to help me walk
I've heard my voice, now you'll bear its thoughts
And wherever you go, I'll be an arm's length away
But you can stay
I'm sure we'll meet again soon and I'll be better and so will you
Yeah you, you can stay in bed today
