"Song In E" lyrics - JULIEN BAKER

"Song In E"

I wish that I drank
Because of you and not only
Because of me
Then I could blame something
Painful enough not to make me
Look any more

And when you heard my name
You could be angry and you'd have a good reason to be
Then when I sang
In a horrible drunken parade of my worst thoughts
I'd say "Give me no sympathy"
It's the mercy I can't take

[Instrumental break]

Oh I wish you'd come over
Not to stay, just to tell me that I
Was your biggest mistake to my face
And then leave me alone
In an empty apartment
Face down in the carpet
I wish you'd hurt me
It's the mercy I can't take
