Heart-Set Self-Destruct Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

If your love is sinking
Deep in the ocean
Teach me how to swim
When I feel your body
Is like oxygen
So give me time to breathe
Lay back just like that
Wanna see you wear
Only your hair
Cause you know
Exactly what I like
Holding your hand
While I hear your breath getting heavier
Wondering if you want me to stay
Love when you lie to me
So lie to me
Love when you lie to me
So lie to me
Everytime I ask you if you love me
If you need me
Just lie cause I like the way
You lie to me
If your love is sinking
Deep in the ocean teach me how to swim
My body will keep all
Your feelings and memories afloat so
You can break my heart
Every single time as long as you
Keep it close to yours
Wherever you'll go baby
I'll find the key for a million doors
If you'll be right there for me cause
Love when you lie to me
So lie to me
Love when you lie to me
So lie to me
Everytime I ask you if you love me
If you need me
Just lie cause I like the way
You lie to me
Lie to me lie
Tell me that I am yours yours
Lie to me




Lie to me
Tell me that I am yours yours
