Emmy The Great – Somerset lyrics

All the greats, all the masterworks
On your desk, let them go a while
And come outside, let's talk about
Something that's real, like
Please don't get over me
Cuz I've heard that you met someone
What's her name? What's she like to love?
And I guess that this is coming late in the day
But please don't get over me

F. Scott Fitzgerald, Tennessee Williams
Come on, let's talk about something different
Tell me you're sorry, I'll say I'm sorry too
Becuz I can't get over you
I can't get over...

Tennessee Williams, Somerset Maugham
I don't care about all that
Classical records, Dinosaur Jr
I don't care about all that
Just tell me you're sorry
I'll say I'm sorry too cause you're distant
I didn't come to you, now I can't get over

All the greats on your reading list
Kept you safe through the hours I've missed
Are they enough for you now that
I've set you free? Please don't get over me
Please don't get over me
