Manchester Orchestra – Annie Lyrics

Annie Lyrics – Manchester Orchestra

I thought this time I might just walk away from you
You were a thief, yeah and I was the proof
But you don’t ever cry, so no telling the truth

The first time that I tried to run away from you
You gave me a list, said now baby you choose
But it wasn’t engraved, it felt more like a bruise

Oh I wasn’t ashamed then, of my degree
The fear that I once paid for now was free

But I wasn’t afraid then, of who I’d become
In a desperate vain attempt to talk to God
I saw, I saw

Now I’m the same, lost my decree, and it paid for you
I was a liar, I was stuck in the fog
Yeah and you were turned around, I was pretty much lost

I’m first of four that tried to cast away from you
Into the dark, you were a spear
I was holding your head, you were watching me kneel

I was barely born then, I was hardly evolved
I was pacing back and forth to calm the squall

So I ran out of reasons, of places to fall
Would you take my heart and nail it to your wall?
I saw, I saw

Once you reach the top it takes your air
Are you hollow? Are you hollow?
Lower than you think you’ve ever been
Are you hollow? Are you hollow?

I don’t want to believe it
Stuck in my thought
I’ve been trying to replicate the mask of God

Now I’m starting to feel it
Now the guilt’s falling off
When I turned my eyes around, I learned to talk
I saw, I saw
