Melanie Martinez – Soap lyrics

[Verse 1]
Think I just remembered something
I think I left the faucet running
Now my words are filling up the tub
Darling, you're just soaking in it
But I know you'll get out the minute
You notice all your fingers pruning up


[Pre-Chorus]
I'm tired of being careful, tip toe, trying to keep the water warm
Let me under your skin
Uh oh there it goes, I said too much, it overflowed
Why do I always spill
?

[Chorus] [2x]
I feel it coming out my throat
Guess I better wash my mouth out with soap
God I wish I never spoke
Now I gotta wash my mouth out with soap

[Verse 2]
I think I got myself in trouble
So I fill the bath with bubbles
Then I'll put the towels all away

Should've never said the word "love"
Threw a toaster in the bathtub
I'm sick of all the games I have to play


[Pre-Chorus]
I'm tired of being careful, tip toe, trying to keep the water warm
Let me under your skin
Uh oh there it goes, I said too much, it overflowed
Why do I always spill?

[Chorus] [2x]
I feel it coming out my throat
Guess I better wash my mouth out with soap
God I wish I never spoke
Now I gotta wash my mouth out with soap

[Instrumental]

[Chorus]
I feeling it coming out my throat
Guess I better wash my mouth out with soap
God I wish I never spoke
Now i gotta wash wash mouth mouth with soap
I feel it coming out my throat
Guess I better wash my mouth out with soap
God I wish I never spoke
Now I gotta wash my mouth out with soap

    The song is about her wanting to move fast with the relationships but it afraid of going too fast that the other person will not be interested anymore. She hates that she keeps bringing up the future when the other person may not be ready for that. For example when she says "Should've never said the word 'love', threw a toaster in the bath tub." This shows that she regrets going to fast in the relationship and saying I love you when the other person may have not have been ready for that. She also doesn't like hiding all her feelings and wants to move fast like when she says " I'm tired of being careful, tip toe, trying to keep the water warm." This is a metaphor for her being tired of holding back her fast forward feelings to keep the relationship steady and avoid conflict, bu as the song goes "Guess i better wash my mouth out with Soap, God I wish I never spoke now I got to wash my mouth out with Soap." She knows its wrong and not what the other person wants.

    I think its about being in a relationship where you are trying to communicate your feelings(maybe wanting space) but end up offending the person. You feel pressure and feel responsible for their feelings. You want to express something which they are misunderstanding. It all started when you told them you loved them. You realise that you are over thinking things and complicating things more than they actually are.
