Charli XCX – Sympathy is a knife Lyrics

Charli XCX Sympathy is a knife Lyrics

I don’t wanna share the space
I don’t wanna force a smile
This one girl taps my insecurities
Don’t know if its real or if I’m spiralling
One voice tells me that they laugh
George says i’m just paranoid
Says he just don’t see it, he’s so naive
I’m embarrassed to have it but need the sympathy

Coz I couldn’t even be her if I tried
I’m opposite, I’m on the other side
I feel all these feelings I can’t control
Oh no
Don’t know why
All this sympathy is just a knife
Why I can’t even grit my teeth and lie
I feel all these feelings I can’t control
Oh no
Don’t know

Why I wanna buy a gun
Why I wanna shoot myself
Volatile at war with my dialogue
I’d say that there was a God if they could stop this
Wild voice tearing me apart
I’m so apprehensive now
Don’t wanna see her backstage at my boyfriends show
Fingers crossed behind my back, I hope they break up quick

Coz I couldn’t even be her if I tried
I’m opposite, I’m on the other side
I feel all these feelings I can’t control
Oh no
Don’t know why
All this sympathy is just a knife
Why I can’t even grit my teeth and lie
I feel all these feelings I can’t control
Oh no

All this sympathy is just a knife
All this sympathy is just a knife
All this sympathy is just a knife
Yeah, all this sympathy is just a knife
Oh no, oh no
Why is all this sympathy a fucking knife?
Yeah, all this sympathy is just a knife
Couldn’t even be her if I tried
Oh no, oh no
