Portishead – Pearl lyrics
I want you now as then
Don't tell me
You want to stay
Too much time
Now has passed
Too too soon a thing to do
I was only thinking I would do right
Now and then I need a little sting
I was only trying not to second guess
Why you came

But Since I have changed
I'm chasing opposites
Things that you do
Stay on my mind till I'm
So tired I can't
I can't see when you go
I can't see when you keep silencing me
Telling me things
No reason I should stay
When you know what to say
To tug me

Talk is cheap
That look of yours
Too Too cold now
The call
Could you feel
So ravaged and misunderstood
Everything changed
Nothing remains

So consider now when it was easy
Knowing what you do
And what you gave
I was silly knowing what was to be
My mistake

But Since I have changed
I'm chasing opposites
Things that you do
Stay on my mind till I'm
So tired I can't
I can't see when you go
I can't see when you keep silencing me
Telling me things
No reason I should stay
When you know what to say
To tug me

Since I've changed
I'm chasing opposites
Things that you do
Stay on my mind till I'm
So tired I can't see when you go
I can't see when you keep silencing me
Telling me things
No reason I should stay
When you know what to say
To tug me
