Declan McKenna – Eventually, Darling Lyrics

Eventually, Darling By Declan McKenna

The backyard balcony view
Is as empty as hell without you
And the man that you trust
[?] dust ’cause he left without a word
Have you heard an apology now?
No comment, what were you on though?
Tell me you truly believed when he promised
Motherless leeches, one of us each will carry the spade
Don’t be so nasty, father will cough, he rolls in his grave

I don’t mean to be shallow, I’m just movin’ on
But it was nice to meet you
But love is but a fleeting friend
We’ll end up both alone [?] oh, we know
How easy it is to pretend

Sick of trying to be cool, trying to be him
Exactly what is getting worse each time and time again
Is that not something you could want, if only I’d win
Pretendin’ not to choke like life is [?] and again

It’s not really the time for kickin’ and screaming
Well it’s a silly thought
It’s a silly feeling, ah

Oh, motherless leeches, one of us each will carry the spade
Everyone leaves eventually darling, don’t be afraid
No really, don’t worry, won’t you scurry now?
While your life’s in pieces and love is but fleeting flame
Don’t pretend that you care, you don’t
As one of many broken hearts to mend
I see you and love just doesn’t care for you
We’ll end up both alone, oh, we know
Your father feels the same way too (Too)

Sick of trying to be cool, trying to be him
Exactly what is getting worse each time and time again
Is that not something you could want, if only I’d win
Pretendin’ not to choke like life is [?] and again

If you said it now [?]
If you could do it once, would you do it again?
Would you do it again?
Would you do it again?
Would you do it again?
Would you do it again?
