Some lyrics perfectly encompass breaking up. There’s a melody to that moment in our lives where no matter how much we try, we just can't get it right. I wanted to write about how complex the process is but then came across Katie's song and realised she perfectly encapsulates what I was going to write. Relationships are complex and we do have a complex about them. An image we build filled with expectations, stories, feelings. An image Katie perfectly encapsulates.

I feel like giving her a cuddle.

Enjoy.

I'm 21, the edge is razor-thin
Between being numb and feeling everything
Good days only serve as relief again
Now I'm watching as I waste away my days and then
It's a cross dissolve, it's a scene I've played before
And the leading role that I thought I'd hold
Doesn't listen to me anymore
But I'm wearing his boxers
I'm being a good wife
We won't be together
But maybe the next life
I need him like water
He lives on a landslide
I cry in his bathroom
He turns off the big light
I'm being the cool girl
I'm keeping it so tight
I carry him home while
My friends have a good night
I need him like water
He thinks that I'm alright
I'm not feeling human
I think he's a good guy
But it's complex
It's a complex
Triangular, I can see them now
Three points at which I let myself down
I was just a girl, what's the excuse now?
Too regular, this pattern I've
Been taking shelter in, reaching new highs
When I was 19, I wanted to die
Now I just wanna kill you
But I don't wanna paint you the victim
And I talk a good game
I'd die for just the promise you'd listen
But I'm wearing his boxers
I'm being a good wife
We won't be together
But maybe the next life
I need him like water
He lives on a landslide
I cry in his bathroom
He turns off the big light
I'm being the cool girl
I'm keeping it so tight
I carry him home while
My friends have a good night
I need him like water
He thinks that I'm alright
I'm not feeling human
I think he's a good guy
But it's complex
It's a complex
It's a complex
I'm a complex
