Lyrics

Switching into airplane mode again
We're not alright but I'll pretend
Press my cheek against the glass
Just be good 'til I get back

The ground disappears
I hold back the tears
I check my phone to see your face
Staring back as if to say
Don't worry, you won't be lonely

Why won't you love me?
Why won't you love me?
You imagine when you close your eyes
You're with me on the other side
So why won't you love me?

Few drinks deep at a table for one
The place we like to go and you take yourself home again
Three missed calls at 2 AM
You say you never heard, you're late to get to work and then

The time disappears
You hold back the tears
Your best girlfriend just got engaged
You say you can't wait and need to make a change
You told me it's so hard to be lonely

Why won't you love me?
Why won't you love me?
We're together all alone tonight
So helpless from the other side
So why won't you love me?

Can you tell me why, my love? Can you tell me why?
I hold on to you and you hold on to me
Can you tell me why, my love? Can you tell me why?
I hold on to you and you hold on

Why won't you love me?
Why won't you love me?
Why won't you love me?
You imagine when you close your eyes
You're with me on the other side
So why won't you love me?

Demo

I am your maniac
I pick your tarantula up
I say what you wanted to hear
But I guess I don't try hard enough
I should surrender now
My body is broken and weak
But when I sit next to you
I vibrate like a washing machine

Why won't you love me?
Why won't you love me?
Imagine I'm your faithful wife
I need attention in my life
So why won't you love me?

We used to take off our clothes and lay
In the fountains on warm summer nights
That's when I learned that I can't be brave
Until I am terrified
Now I feel uncomfortable
When you stare at my face
I wish I had my pacifier
To make the ache go away

Why won't you love me?
Why won't you love me?
Imagine I'm your faithful wife
I need attention in my life
So why won't you love me?
