Flinch

Text písně Flinch

What’s it been over a decade?
 It still smarts like it was four minutes ago
 We only influenced each other totally
 We only bruised each other even more so


What are you my blood? You touch me like you are my blood
 What are you my dad? You affect me like you are my dad


How long can a girl be shackled to you
 How long before my dignity is reclaimed
 How long can a girl stay haunted by you
 Soon I’ll grow up and I won’t even flinch at your name
 Soon I’ll grow up and I won’t even flinch at your name


Where’ve you been? I heard you moved to my city
 My brother saw you somewhere downtown
 I’d be paralyzed if I ran into you
 My tongue would seize up if we were to meet again


What are you my god? You touch me like you are my god
 What are you my twin? You affect me like you are my twin


How long can a girl be tortured by you?
 How long before my dignity is reclaimed
 And how long can a girl be haunted by you
 Soon I’ll grow up and I won’t even flinch at your name
 Soon I’ll grow up and I won’t even flinch at your name


So here I am one room away from where I know you’re standing
 A well-intentioned man told me you just walked in
 This man knows not of how this information has affected me
 But he knows the colour of the car I just drove away in


What are you my kin? You touch me like you are my kin
 What are you my air? You affect me like you are my air
