King Krule – Portrait In Black And Blue lyrics

[Verse 1]
Spastic gyrations
And abbreviated bathing suits
See I suit you
Cause I could be you
And I could show you true
Till the cold runs through and through
A portrayal in black and blue

[Chorus]
I'm not painting this lie anymore
Since it was all I had to adore of you
And all I had to say
Girl you keep running away

[Verse 2]
Well time never gave me a chance
I shoulda been there
Well you laid me bare
Took my soul to wear
Left a hole to despair
See what I'm going through
You never even knew
That's nothing on my plate
Trapped in a lizard state
My mind's at the gate
Looking for an escape

[Chorus]
I'm not painting this lie anymore
Since it was all I had to adore of you
And all I had to say
Girl I'm not painting this lie any more
I'm not painting this lie anymore
Since it was all I had to adore of you
And all I had to say
Girl it never hit me the same boy...
