Amber Run – White Lie lyrics
[Verse 1]
I was sixteen years old
When the sadness took hold
And it never went again

Still feel it sometimes
When the weather's unkind
And my lover's lips are thin

[Pre-Chorus]
But then I get high
Tell myself the white lie
That blind faith would make
Everything alright
That I'd walk on water
Like when I was younger

[Chorus]
I'm a failure
I'm a disaster
And I don't 'wanna be anything else
I'm a loner
I'm a loser
And I don't 'wanna be anything else

[Verse 2]
It's in London, most times
It swarms around me
And it comes in waves again
Yeah, I'll do what I'm told
Let the future unfold
As I'm thrown down the rabbit hole

[Pre-Chorus]
But then I get high
Tell myself the white lie
That blind faith would make
Everything alright
That I'd walk on water
Like when I was younger

[Chorus]
I'm a failure
I'm a disaster
And I don't 'wanna be anything else
I'm a loner
I'm a loser
And I don't 'wanna be anything else

[Bridge]
Do you feel the same to me?
Do you feel the same to me?
Cause I don't wanna be like you
I don't wanna be like you
I don't wanna be anything else
I don't wanna be like you
I don't wanna be like you
I don't wanna be anything else

[Chorus]
I'm a failure
I'm a disaster
And I don't 'wanna be anything else
