Blood Orange – Dark & Handsome Lyrics

Dark & Handsome by Blood Orange


Nothing lasts forever and I told you
Everything you need to know that’s not true
Lying to myself because it hurts you
Waiting for the simple taste to come through
I been known to hide within my own walls
Jewelry and my ice so that I don’t fall
Up to higher places and escape with
All my ice in tact and who am I to kid?
Pound of flesh and yeah I’m still kickin’
So it wasn’t just ’cause my own stupid
Fears because the past and future scare me
Riding out to Venice with a nosebleed
I stood before the waves and prayed to be cleaned
I’m dirty in my mind, I don’t turn green
This is everything you ever wanted
Crying for the ones I lost in ’18
IG3, 2014, unhappy
Nothing ever makes you get past it
Thirty three it’s time to stop thinking
Find my place and I keep on standing
Shower my beliefs with ice melting

I’m losing touch with everything I know
Praying for my heart to turn to stone
Bandana tied around my broken skull
Icing for my wrist, my touch is cold
Losin’ touch of everything I know
Praying for my heart to turn to stone
Bandana tied around my broken skull
Ice around my wrist, my touch is cold

Don’t be actin’ dumb, cookies gonna crumble
Wipin’ up the crumbs, I do this s--- casual
Happens all the time, plus I’m dark and handsome
S---, broken by design, it’s a tantrum

Losin’ touch of everything I know
Praying for my heart to turn to stone
Bandana tied around my broken skull
Ice around my wrist, my touch is cold

Don’t be actin’ dumb, cookies gonna crumble
Up the crumbs, I do this s--- casual
Happens all the time, plus I’m dark and handsome
