Emma Blackery – Instead lyrics
[Verse 1]
I don’t know how
To let you go
It’s been six months now

I hear the sound
Of all the rumours about you
Going round

[Pre-Chorus]
They say you moved on in just two weeks
How could it be so easy
For you to forget me

And now you’ve moved in with all your friends
And you don’t think of me
Before bed

[Chorus]
And you’ll be kissing her
When you should be kissing me instead
And you’ll be kissing him
When you should be kissing me instead

[Verse 2]
And in your head
You flicked the switch
And called me a friend

You don’t love yourself
Enough to keep away
From someone else

[Pre-Chorus 2]
And your ex girlfriend’s asked you out
And I can’t see you
Turning her down

Because you’re too scared to be alone
And yet I’ve been here
All along

[Chorus 2]
And you’ll be missing her
When you should be missing me instead
And you’ll be missing him
When you should be missing me instead

And you keep twisting this
And making me an enemy in your head
So you’ll be kissing them
When you should be kissing me instead

[Bridge]
I’d rather you be happy
Than make you fall in love with me
But you’re thinking of a lover and
I’m fearing that I’ll never love again

I’d rather you be happy
Than make you fall in love with me
But you’re thinking of a lover and
I’m fearing that I’ll never love again

[Verse 3]
I don’t know how
To let you go
It’s been six months now

I hear the sound
Of all the rumours about you
Going round

[Chorus 2]
And you’ll be kissing her
When you should be kissing me instead
And you’ll be kissing him
When you should be kissing me instead

And you keep twisting this
And making me an enemy in your head
So you’ll be kissing them
When you should be kissing me instead
