Sarah Jaffe – Adeline lyrics

You can never know enough about what's underneath
I keep uprooting myself unknowingly
Until one day I'm driving, and I feel my heart implode
And I wonder where it comes from
And where it goes

I guess I have to warn you: I might die for a day
And I'll think about it so much until it finds itself a grave
Til we've argued every politic and burned in third degree
I'll feel like the ghost in your tragedy

You were right
It's easy to see
Adeline, Adeline

You found this spot on the wall
And you just stared all day
And it felt so comfortable until I made you look away
And your eyes were crossed and glazed
And in that moment you were lost
Maybe it's for the best that you're not here at all

You were right
It's easy to see
Adeline, Adeline
Adeline, Adeline

I got your warmth on my back and your tears in my blood
And whatever it is, it is never enough
Until I'm no longer human
And you're no longer sane
And my face is hard with anger, but I want you just the same

You were right
It's easy to see
Adeline, Adeline
Adeline, Adeline
