lyrics

They will love you for the wrong reasons
And you will try to keep it short

Bloated baggage, soaking through the seats of my new used car
Wading through the wreck, moving fast, not getting far
I bought your city’s map so I can study where you are

Burning books of matches, quitting litter the wet ground
Nothing holds a flame, so the remains are still around
I tried to take you down like a burning Southern town

They will love you for the wrong reasons
And you will try to keep it short

Scrubbing skin in fitful frenzies, try to get clean
Rubbing till it’s red, I fled regretting everything
Pretending to be free, I’ve got your watermarks on me

Less like a wildfire, more like a flood
Less like a wildfire, more like a flood


Buckling like bridges, giving up while bearing weight
Treading through the channel but my legs are giving way
Muffled by the waves, I was begging you to stay

Less like a wildfire, more like a flood
Less like a wildfire, more like a flood

They will love you more like a flood
And you will try to keep it short
