Dodie – Burned Out Lyrics

[Verse 1]
He was certain, so was I
There was comfort in her sighs
Dreams and ideas should not be the same thing
You waited, smiling, for this?
Oh, she’d want it if she knew
She could take it, I thought too
Be careful, be cautious, but you just wished harder
You waited, smiling, for this?

[Chorus]
“But they love you”
Over and over, “They love you”
Thousands and thousands of eyes just like mine
Aching to find who they are
“Oh, they love you! Oh, you can feel how they love you”
Coated and warm but that’s all they can do
Words only get through if they’re sharp

[Verse 2]
Oh, how fitting for one so fake
Make me a fairy, whatever it takes
And just like her tale, my dream was a scam
You waited, smiling, for this?
I am burnt out, I smell of smoke
It seeps through her cracks and so I start to choke

Sentences sit in her mouth that are templated
You waited, smiling, for this?

[Chorus]
“But they love you”
Over and over, “They love you”
Thousands and thousands of eyes just like mine
Aching to find who they are
“Oh, they love you! Oh, you can feel how they love you”
Coated and warm but that’s all they can do
Words only get through if they’re sharp

[Bridge]
Oh, maybe I’ll talk about it (Maybe I’ll talk about it)
I can just talk about it (I can just talk about it)
I’ll never talk about it (I’ll never talk about it)
No, I cannot talk about it

[Outro]
Don’t build hope on something broken
I am not cartoon
Cry for help, I am not joking
I might just leave soon
Don’t build hope on something broken
I am not cartoon
Cry for help, I am not joking
I might just leave soon
