Lauv – The Other lyrics

[Verse 1]
Like a spotlight the water hits me
Ran it extra cold to shake the words from my mouth
Though I know that no one's listening
I nervously rehearse for when you're around
And I keep waiting like
You might change my mind

[Chorus]
Who wrote the book on goodbye?
There's never been a way to make this easy
When there's nothing quite wrong but it don't feel right
Either your head or your heart, you set the other on fire

[Verse 2]
Back and forth now I'm feeling guilty
Cause I just can't stop this pendulum in my head
Though I know that our time is ending
Oooh, I'd rather lay forever right in this bed
And I'll keep waiting like
You might change my mind
Give me one more night

[Chorus]
Who wrote the book on goodbye?
There's never been a way to make this easy
When there's nothing quite wrong but it don't feel right
Either your head or your heart, you set the other on fire

[Bridge]
No one knows
Oh-oh oh-oh no-oh
No one knows
Oh-oh oh-oh no-oh

[Verse 3]
We fell from the peak
And the stars, they broke their code
I'm trying to forget
How I landed on this road
I'm caught in between
What I wish and what I know
When they say that you just know

[Chorus]
Who wrote the book on goodbye?
There's never been a way to make this easy
When there's nothing quite wrong but it don't feel right
Either your head or your heart, you set the other on fire

[Bridge]
No one knows
Oh-oh oh-oh no-oh
No one knows
Oh-oh oh-oh no-oh
No one knows
Oh-oh oh-oh no-oh

[Refrain]
You set the other on fire
You set the other on fire
You set the other on fire...
