Lyrics

Just cause I bought a band-aid
Doesn't mean I'm able to clean the scars that run
Deeper than all my old demons that I keep under still water

Just cause you give me flowers
Doesn't cover up the smell of the dead body
Or raise the dead body of a girl who got shut down before

Just cause you crack the window
Doesn't mean I'm able to clear the air that made it
Hard to breathe before
You came around here

Just cause you say you love me
Doesn't mean that I'm gonna look you in the eyes
Pretend to be surprised
And say I love you back (love you back)

Cause I'm tripping, tripping on rocks
Cuttin' on my ankles, when will the blood stop?
Blue, blue knees
Fallin' for the next man
Who breathes

I need a band-aid recovery
Don't get too close 'cause you're really nothing to me
You're just a band-aid on my knees
You're just a band-aid recovery
I'll rip you off when I please
I'll rip you off when I bleed

Just cause I'm coming over
Doesn't mean I'll be there when you wake up
Cause coming over doesn't mean that I'm over him

Just cause you are my band-aid
Doesn't mean I want you to stick around
Cause rebounds get washed away the next time it rains

Cause I'm tripping, tripping on rocks
Cuttin' on my ankles, when will the blood stop?
Blue, blue knees
Fallin' for the next man
Who breathes

I need a band-aid recovery
Don't get too close 'cause you're really nothing to me
You're just a band-aid on my knees
You're just a band-aid recovery
I'll rip you off when I please
I'll rip you off when I bleed
