Ruin Me
Local the Neighbour Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Next Year, I'll do my taxes
But this year I'll blow my finances
On you

Cause you will ruin me
Cause you will ruin me
Cause you will ruin me
Cause you will ruin me

I'm trapped in, a pool of ambition
Can we make it
I'm fighting through all the voices of neglect

I guess soon we will see
I guess soon we will see




I guess soon we will see
I guess soon we will see
