slowthai – feel away Lyrics

feel away By slowthai

We don’t go on dates, we went our separate ways
And we don’t conversate, she said I’m playin’ games
She said she feels trapped, stuck up in this fuckin’ maze
How you been? I been better than yesterday
And it was just a day, you know I don’t complain
Standin’ in the rain, soakin’ wet tryna demonstrate
That I don’t feel a way, I never hesitate
What’s on your mind? Can you say what you’re thinkin’, babe?
I’m too short for my pockets, no, that’s bollocks
Walkin’ through my mind, it’s a forest, don’t get lost again
Said you want a cottage with the fireplace
Sittin’ by the fire with marshmellows and a chocolate fig
You felt low, I took you higher than a note from Mariah
And still you got the cheek to even try and call me a liar
Want a bun up in the oven
Tryna trap me in ’bout why I put a baby in your stomach
If that’s what you desire
Desire, desire, desire
Feel away, desire, desire, desire, desire
Feel away, desire, desire, desire, desire
Feel away, desire, desire, desire, desire
Feel away, desire, desire, desire, desire
Feel away, desire, desire, desire

Suddenly not half the man I used to be (feel away)
But truthfully, it hurt what you could’ve been (feel away)
It’s not you, so I guess it’s me (feel away)
It’s not you, so I guess it’s me (feel away)
Suddenly not half the man I used to be (feel away)
But truthfully, it hurt what you could’ve been (feel away)
It’s not you, so I guess it’s me (feel away)

This time I (This time)
This time I (I feel away, this time)
This time I (This time I’m thinkin’)
This time I (I feel away)
This time I have one hand free (Feel away)
This has nothing to do with me (Nothing, nothing)
I leave the dent in my car
To remind me what I could have lost
And you revealed who you were
So this doesn’t feel like a love (Feel like)
I feel safe, I feel safe
This time I, this time will be to [?]
Or bein’ to fear
This time I, this time will, hope this shouldn’t end

Suddenly not half the man I used to be
But truthfully, it hurt what you could’ve been
It’s not you, so I guess it’s me
It’s not you, so I guess it’s me
Suddenly not half the man I used to be
But truthfully, it hurt what you could’ve been
It’s not you, so I guess it’s me

Dream [?]
See me there, see me down
Take me anywhere, I come to you with love


“Feel Away” is a collaboration with James Blake, with whom slowthai wrote the track in LA earlier this year. Mount Kimbie’s Dom Maker produced it. “This song is about the doubts we have whether it be within friendships, your partner, or with our family,” slowthai said in a statement. “It’s about putting yourself in the other person’s shoes so you have a better understanding of the situation.”
