Slow is the memory
I can picture her standing right in front of me
Orange blossoms crushed on concrete
I walk around with barefeet
'cause I know you want me
Can't remember anything
Her skin it tastes like sugar cane
And I had already gotten there before I came
My tank is empty
And I know you're thirsty

But I have already tried to explain myself
It's not that I love someone else
But I can't bear to listen to you cry
I'm sick of all these wasted years
A rag for someone else's tears
I wring you out as I hang you out to dry

And I'll see you when I get back
Maybe we can get ourselves back on the right track
You touch me there because you know how much I like that
I think that we will need to relax
'cause I know you want me
All the time and everywhere
A happy surface but the underbelly isn't there
And the worst thing is that I don't even really care
And the emptiness is too much to bear

But I have already tried to explain myself
It's not that I love someone else
But I can't bear to listen to you cry
I'm sick of all these wasted years
A rag for someone else's tears
I wring you out as I hang you out to

C'mon C'mon
Get off the phone
Please come home
It's been so lonely since you've been gone
Your love surround me
Up and down me
Be all around me
Baby I can't breathe no more

C'mon C'mon
Get off the phone
Please come home
It's been so lonely since you've been gone
Your love surround me
Up and down me
Be all around me
Baby I can't breathe no more

I have already tried to explain myself
It's not that I love someone else
But I can't bear to listen to you cry
I'm sick of all these wasted years
A rag for someone else's tears
I wring you out as I hang you out to dry
I'm sick of all these wasted years
A rag for someone else's tears
I wring you out as I hang you out to dry
