KEEP Lyrics
by summer

You would keep me
But I’m not the keeping kind
I can’t leave you
Like I left the others behind

I’ve got strong hands
You’ve got a sore back
I think that this kind of thing might last
You’ve got a taste for windows in june
I’ve got a taste for you

(Shhh) Don’t tell yourself
And don’t you dare tell me
(Shhh) There’s nothing I want more than to be yours
To keep

I would leave you
But you’re not the leaving kind
I don’t want to keep you
Like I kept the others behind

I’m of like mind
Save your speech lines
I know that now is a long time
I don’t dare tell the wind which way to blow
Sometimes I (just) want to know

(Shhh) Don’t tell yourself
And don’t you dare tell me
(Shhh) There’s nothing I want more than to be yours
To keep

Every little leaving
Unravels another thread
I need to keep my artist hungry
If I ever want to get
Fed

I would keep you
But I’m not the keeping kind
You weren’t mine for the keeping
And neither was I

I’ve got strong hands
You’ve got a sore back
I think that this kind of thing might
I think this kind of thing
I think this kind of thing might
Last

I want it to last
I don’t want it to last
(repeat)
