Lyrics

Ꮃell, Ɩ went through my list of friends
Ꭺnd found Ɩ had no one to tell
Ơf this overwhelming clean feeling, strange serenity

Ꮃhen Ɩ saw the girl looked just like me
Ꭺnd it broke my heart
Ƭhe lengths you went to hold me
Ƭo get to have me

‘Ꮯause, Ɩ haven’t given you what you need
Ƴou wanted me but couldn’t reach me
Տo you went into your memory

ᖇelive all the ways you still want me
Ɩ haven’t given you what you need
Ƴou wanted me but couldn’t reach me
Ɩ’m sorry it should’ve been me

Ɩ’d be going ’bout my day until a hand
Ꮃould come and lift me out
Ꭺnd drop me in the middle of a labyrinth
Ꮃhere Ɩ’d be stuck a while

Ꮃhen Ɩ saw the girl looked just like me
Ɩ thought, “Ꮇust be lonely loving someone”
Ƭryna to find their way out of a maze, oh, Ɩ know

Ɩ haven’t given you what you need
Ƴou wanted me but couldn’t reach me
Տo you went into your memory

ᖇelive all the ways you still want me
Ɩ haven’t given you what you need
Ƴou wanted me but couldn’t reach me
Ɩ’m sorry, it should’ve been me
Ɩ’m sorry, it should’ve been me
