Dodie – Bite Back Lyrics

Will you not let me be someone else not getting through? Why are you jealous? Why are you jealous? I couldn't reach you
No, not tonight
I'll try tomorrow
I'll try tomorrow
[Chorus]
Oh, let me look inside
'Cause under all that fire
There are knots that I can help undo
My dear, I'm only trying to help you
Will you soften to me? [Verse 1]
I hear you laughing in the other room
Two doors between us, oh, it's morning soon
I   rolled   my eyes to   land on ten past nine
Oh God,   I gave up, said goodnight, mmm
If I could find the   strength   of   fifty men
Maybe I   could go back   in again
I'd shrug my shoulders, I'd shake back my hair
I'd be the girl who doesn't care, hmm
[Pre-Chorus]
You're in a weird mood
And I could smell it
Why do you bite back? Will you not let me be someone else not getting through? My dear, I'm only trying
My dear, I'm only trying to help you
[Bridge]
Mmm-mmm-mmm
Mmm-mmm-mmm
Mmm-mmm-mmm
[Outro]
I couldn't reach you
No, not tonight
I'll try tomorrow
And hope you're kind I couldn't reach you
No, not tonight
I'll try tomorrow
I'll try tomorrow
[Chorus]
Oh, let me look inside
'Cause under all that fire
There are knots that I can help undo
My dear, I'm only trying to help you
Will you soften to me? My dear, I'm only trying
My dear, I'm only trying to help you
[Verse 2]
Our conversation walks a fine line
I search the room for brows that raise like mine
I seem to be quite used to heavy words
Don't even know why this still hurts, hmm
And when I come to you and say my peace
Don't give me eyes like this is my problem, please
Folded arms and furrowed brows
It's just too late to admit it now, mmm
[Pre-Chorus]
You're in a weird mood
And I could smell it
Why do you bite back?
