Bombay Bicycle Club – Still lyrics

Had your standards close to heart
But late one night you threw them down.

Simple promises you said you never break but now you have.

All throughout the morning though I'm begging "No," your lips they stay perfectly still.


Did he fill the empty spaces?
Was he everything I'm not?

There's no force behind my mouth
But in just three words he brings you down.

There's a movement out the door
I swear but no your lips they stay perfectly still.
