Arlo Parks – Weightless Lyrics

Arlo Parks Weightless Lyrics

Cardamom and jade as your eyes streamed
On the night you showed your volcanic side
And I’m afraid to need validation
Waiting for the day when you finally try

There are sandflies in the champagne
You’re closed off, I’m so drained
But I sparkle in the rare case that you tell me I’m your sun ray
I’m starved of your affection
You’re crushed under the pressure
But you won’t change
No, you won’t change

I don’t wanna wait for ya
I don’t wanna wait for ya
I don’t wanna wait for ya, but I need you, so I won’t go
I don’t wanna wait for ya
I don’t wanna wait for ya
I don’t wanna wait for ya, but I need you, so I won’t go

Tethered to the person you could be
Re-reading our texts from the strawberry days
Just give me a sign if you want me
Just give me a sign if you wanna stay

There’s blue glass in the soft rain
You’re passive, I’m in pain
But I sparkle in the rare case that you tell me I’m your sun ray
I’m starved of your affection
You’re crushed under the pressure
But you won’t change
No, you won’t change

I don’t wanna wait for ya
I don’t wanna wait for ya
I don’t wanna wait for ya, but I need you, so I won’t go
I don’t wanna wait for ya
I don’t wanna wait for ya
I don’t wanna wait for ya, but I need you, so I won’t go

And I usually know my strength
But here I am at ninety degrees bent
A metallic taste at the back of my throat
Watch your deltoid flex as you cough on the phone
And I’ve lost my grit and I’m in my head
You’re so withdrawn and I’m standing there
Keeping wool over my eyes
Keeping wool over my eyes

I don’t wanna wait for ya
I don’t wanna wait for ya
I don’t wanna wait for ya, but I need you, so I won’t go
I don’t wanna wait for ya
I don’t wanna wait for ya
I don’t wanna wait for ya, but I need you, so I won’t go

I don’t wanna wait for ya
I don’t wanna wait for ya
I don’t wanna wait for ya, but I need you, so I won’t go
I don’t wanna wait for ya
I don’t wanna wait for ya
I don’t wanna wait for ya, but I need you, so I won’t go
