Lyrics

[Verse]
The lines in your misplaced palms fit perfectly
Where they're meant to be, right in front of me
So tightly you used to, yeah, you used to squeeze me
Like you haven't seen me in eternity

[Pre-Chorus]
Don't make me listen to you get sick of me
It's in your voice when you say "Just leave me be"

[Chorus]
Rock me to sleep, babe
But don't watch me cry
It's too much to handle when you aren't by
Yeah, I'm missing you
Oh, the old you

[Post-Chorus]
Move every loop in your curly cue head and make memories
When you loved me
Yeah, you loved me

[Chorus]
Rock me to sleep, babe
But don't watch me cry
It's too much to handle when you aren't by
Yeah, I'm missing you
Oh, the old you

[Post-Chorus]
Move every loop in your curly cue head and make memories
When you loved me
Yeah, you loved me

[Verse]
The lines in your misplaced palms fit perfectly
Where they're meant to be, right in front of me
So tightly you used to, yeah, you used to squeeze me
Like you haven't seen me in eternity

[Pre-Chorus]
Don't make me listen to you get sick of me
It's in your voice when you say "Leave me be"

[Chorus]
Rock me to sleep, baby
But don't watch me cry
It's too much to handle when you aren't by
Yeah, I'm missing you
Oh, the old you

[Outro]
Move every loop in your curly cue head and make memories, no
When you loved me
Yeah, you loved me

[Verse]
Lines in your misplaced palms fit perfectly
Where they're meant to be, right in front of me
So gently you used to, yeah, you used to hold me
Like you haven't seen me in eternity

[Pre-Chorus]
Don't make me listen to you get sick of me
It's in your voice when you say "Leave me be"

[Chorus]
Rock me to sleep, babe
But don't watch me cry
It's too much to handle when you aren't by
Yeah, I'm missing you
Oh, the old you

[Post-Chorus]
Move every loop in your curly cue head and make memories
When you loved me
Yeah, you loved me

[Chorus]
Rock me to sleep, babe
But don't watch me cry
It's too much to handle when you aren't by
Yeah, I'm missing you
Oh, the old you

[Post-Chorus]
Move every loop in your curly cue head and make memories
When you loved me
Yeah, you loved me
