Alex Clare – Treading Water lyrics

My heart just sank
The moment I saw you
You're the image of a girl
That I used to know
Don't be alarmed if this seems hard
I need to explain
But every detail of your face
Makes me recall the name
Hmmm, treading water
I keep treading water

Maybe it's another chance
To mug myself again
Maybe it's another chance
I'm sure I'll fuck things up in the same way
Maybe it's another chance
To mug myself again

Can you forgive the things I do
That I can't amend?
Another way I yearn for her
I hope you can't pretend
Girl, you're a fire and you'll find
That I want to get burned
No matter what, you can't teach me
I'm sure I'll never learn
Hmmm, treading water
I keep treading water

Maybe it's another chance
To mug myself again
Maybe it's another chance
I'm sure I'll fuck things up in the same way
Maybe it's another chance
To mug myself again

If my concentration
Seems spread too thin
And when you speak
My eyes glaze over,
I'm sorry,
It's not you,
It's her

And you're another chance
To mug myself again
Maybe you're another chance
I'm sure I'll fuck things up in the same way
Maybe it's another cha-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-a-a...
Maybe it's another chance
To mark myself again
Maybe you're another chance
I'm sure I'll fuck things up in the same way
Maybe you're another chance
To mark myself again
