Jack Garratt – Get In My Way Lyrics

Get In My Way By Jack Garratt

I remember every word you said
I can hear them every time somebody dares
To mention your name
And then suddenly, I’m in my head
Wondering how I ever let you drag me down

Like a nervous dog smelling the air
Looking out for a thread I knew was there
But hidden from me
I should’ve taken notice of the birds, uh
And how silently they searched for higher ground

Here we go, tumbling down
We’re buildings that fall to the ground
No, there’s no going back
Can’t mend a heart once it’s cracked

Nothing but dust in the street
Where one day, I hoped we would be
But no, there’s no going back
No mending a heart once it’s cracked
No mending a heart once it’s cracked

How can you think this is a choice, huh
When you made me doubt the sound of my own voice?
But now I’m listening
And I’m learning how to take care of myself
I can fly away and search for higher ground

Here we go, tumbling down
We’re buildings that fall to the ground
No, there’s no going back
Can’t mend a heart once it’s cracked

Nothing but dust in the street
Where one day, I hoped we would be
But no, there’s no going back
No mending a heart once it’s cracked
No mending a heart once it’s cracked

You still think that you did nothing
Nothing that you did ever worked
You still think we could be brothers
But brother, I’ve been watching the birds

You still think that you did nothing
Nothing that you did ever worked
And you still think we could be brothers
But brother, I’ve been watching the birds

Here we go, tumbling down
Buildings that fall to the ground
No, there’s no going back
No mending a heart once it’s cracked

Nothing but dust in the street
Where one day, I hoped we would be
But no, there’s no going back
No mending a heart once it’s cracked
No mending a heart once it’s cracked
