Wednesday night you took me to a magic show 
The same night I said I was gonna leave 
Secretly I hoped that there was something up your sleeve 
But I don’t think I believed it 

Bright as day the morning came to leave our place 
We joked that you would come in my suitcase 
Dreamed you kissed me as I boarded but you only smiled and waved 
I’m just glad that you made it 

I’m not asking you to change 
I’m not asking you to change 
I’m just asking you to stay still 

Cleaned my room took it all to the laundromat 
Watched the clothes spin round my little head 
Wondered if my pants could ever wrap around my legs 
And walk me interstate 

Sold my things to try and win the lottery 
To make my money back and find some peace 
Didn’t have the guts to steal your heart but you sold it to me cheap 
Something tells me you just leased it 

I just wanna hear you speak 
I just wanna hear you speak 
In the same room as me 

To wish you well’s a wishing well a 
Hopeful waste 
Rather throw my money down the drain 
To think of you as happy is a burden on my brain 
And I don’t think I can take it 

But I hope that you’re okay 
Oh I hope that you’re okay 
Dancing on my grave


I wanna see you fight for the hell of it
Pulling out your knife in the street light
Shining so dull on the glitter that flickers like lightning
Bouncing off the back of your blade

I wanna see some blood on your fingernails
Clawing at the club lines vanity
There’s a pretty face in there too smart for her own good
You’re bound to put her in her place

And on the short ride home, we’ll k-hole in the taxi
I don’t wanna feel a thing at all
I’ve been losing all my lovers
Is this what you wanted, Madeleine?

I wanna get fucked up like a holiday
Spending half my night in the pouring rain
Oh I wanna numb my fingers and numb my brain
Til I can’t feel anything at all

I wanna stay this drunk, wanna celebrate
Moving bar to bar like a slow parade
Oh, I wanna ride like lightning and crash like thunder
Riding down the tracks in our brain

I got that sick, sick feeling to hurt somebody
Babe, I think there’s something wrong in my brain
I’ve been losing all my lovers
Is this what you wanted Madeleine?

And the sun has been out since I’ve been coming down
I don’t know how much more I can take
I’ve been lost I’ve been found asleep on the couch
Just waiting for the light to fade
And I’m trying to work out our wandering doubt
Oh loving you is hard somedays

I’ve been losing all my lovers is this what you wanted, Madeleine?


We parked your car
down the street in the dark
Can’t remember where that was
You were kissing me a lot

We had sex
In a yellow tent
With the ocean by the front door
In a trailer park

Am I hard to love
With a heart so tough
You could cut me
And I wouldn’t feel a thing

Do I make you miserable

I never changed
I just learned how to quit
As the water slowly boiled
I just got used to it

I’m glad you stayed
‘Cause my demons did
A tiger in a cage
Eyeing up a little kid

Do I slow you down
With my heavy frown
If you floated
I would sink like a stone
