skip Lyrics – X Ambassadors

Why’d I think you would let me in?
Why does wanting you feel like this?
I talk so much but I never get a word in edgewise
I made you come in so you couldn’t stay
How’d we end up in this damn cliché?
You thought I loved you all I asked is if you’re doing fine
Everybody went home, darling
Haven’t you been getting lonely?
Why’s it even matter to me?

I didn’t mean it when I came too clean
I didn’t mean it when I said those things but
I talk so much that I forget to filter out the razors
I don’t know why I ever made those plans
It’s not like you were even half the man
You thought I loved you all I asked is if you’d hear me out

Everybody’s locked up, darling
Don’t you ever wonder about us?
Why’s it even matter to me now?

If I could go back and un-meet your friend
The one who told us to make nice, shake hands
If I could drink a little less red wine that night
I would tell myself to skip that party
I would do it in a fucking heartbeat
If I could write you out the narrative of my brief life
Everybody gets hurt, darling
Don’t you know you can’t avoid it
What’s it even matter to you?

Why’d I leave a space for you in me?
Why’s this wanting leave me so empty
I think so much but don’t remember anything worth thinking ’bout
I know we had a decent run right through
I know I learned an awful lot from you but
You never loved me and I never could’ve saved you

Everybody’s trying, darling
Don’t you know you can try harder?
But what’s it even matter to me now?

If I could go back and do it all again
Re-write the story of two childhood friends
And never gave you back your keys that fateful night
I would’ve said that we should skip that party
Make you sleep it off and call me in the morning
And I could make myself the hero in the end
Yeah, everybody gets hurt, darling
Don’t you know you can’t avoid it
What’s it even matter to you?
Yeah, everybody gets hurt, darling
What’s it even matter to you?
I don’t even matter to you

Should’ve skipped that party
Should’ve, should’ve skipped that party
Should’ve skipped that party
Should’ve, should’ve skipped that party
Should’ve skipped that party
Should’ve, should’ve skipped that party
Should’ve skipped that party
