I’ve been sloppy losing you

I’ve been sloppy losing you
But trust me
I never wanted to let you go
But darling I broke
Those violin strings a long time ago.

I’ve turned off the air conditioner
Because I didn’t like the airflow
It reminded me of how your heart
Would beat like a kettle drum
Slow then fast and hard…

I’ve been sloppy losing you
But trust me
I never wanted to let you go
Let me confess to you
You were nearly all right
I nearly made you my knight
I nearly drowned for you
Like Tennyson’s lady of shallot
But now you’ve had your lot.

I’ve turned off the air conditioner
Because I didn’t like the airflow
It reminded me of how your heart
Would beat like a kettle drum
Slow then fast and hard…

I’ve been sloppy losing you
But trust me
I never wanted to let you go
But darling I broke
Those violin strings a long time ago.
