Dami Im – Lonely Cactus Lyrics

Late again to dinner
Gave you 3 weeks notice
As per your requirement

But you’re counting down the minutes
Till your next appointment
Stuck in awkward silence

Underneath what you do
There’s nothing but blue
And pieces that don’t have a place

Everyone sees clearly
They’re scared to hurt your feelings
Now let me tell it to your face

You’re a lonely cactus
All on your own
You’re on the attack but
You sit by the phone
A lonely cactus
In the desert sun
But you’re scared if you get too close

You wonder why nobody tries anymore
You bleed us dry still want it all
There’s more to life than chasing you in circles
Do you want to run at all

Underneath what you do
There’s nothing but blue
And pieces that don’t have a place
I’m so tired of hearing
Leave your name and number

Now let me tell it to your face

You’re a lonely cactus
All on your own
You’re on the attack but
You sit by the phone
A lonely cactus
In the desert sun
But you’re scared if you get too close
You’ll hurt someone

I’ll weather the storm
And I’ll take on these thorns
Cause I miss you
I’ll break through armour you’ve worn for so long
Cos you miss me too

You’re a lonely cactus
All on your own
You’re on the attack but
You sit by the phone
A lonely cactus
In the desert sun
And you’re scared of getting too close

You’re a lonely cactus
All on your own
You’re on the attack but
You sit by the phone
A lonely cactus
In the desert sun
You’re scared if you get too close
You’ll hurt someone
You’ll hurt someone
You’re so scared
That you’ll hurt someone
