LyricsEdit

There is no known cure for the common cold

You said let's go on a break
Sounded a little bit fake
Sounded like you just
Wanted to go on a date

Well you don't need my permission
There's no point for me to keep
Wishing you were more, more

You're a world class liar
I am a damn crier
Try to drag you higher
But the stars, they're fragile

And now I'm piecin' together
A puzzle of your face
But the part for your heart
It never fits into place
Oh oh oh oh, place

Love is a turbulent sea
Are you scared to swim with me?
Swim past the fishermen's nets that have
Already tried to trap you and me
I remember when you said
"There are plenty of other fish in the sea"
You said "If this is love, then the current
Will bring you back, bring you back to me"
(La la la la la) Bring you back to me

Feeling a sudden shame
Let myself be treated this way
No this won't happen again
Not over my dead body

Like two dumb dogs walking in circles
Got a feeling, was I just
Chasing the wrong tail? Ohh
Well it's better having your head
Stuck up your ass, you can't sail

He said "You don't appreciate me"
Like a bastard on heat
Two weeks I couldn't eat
But I made my pain discreet

Wouldn't sit the exams
You wanted me to take
I'm above all your games
This shark won't fall for your bait

Oh oh oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
Plenty of fish in the sea
But I just wasn't hungry

Love is a turbulent sea
Are you scared to swim with me?
Swim past the fishermen's nets that have
Already tried to trap you and me
I remember when you said
"There are plenty of other fish in the sea"
You said "if this is love, then the current
Will bring you back, bring you back to me-e-e"
Bring you back to, bring you back to me
