lyrics

With your glasses on, you've been reading all night long
Mmm babe, got me thinking, dirty
Hair down, make-up-less
Probably tell me that you look like sh*t
But babe, got me thinking, lovely

How do you do it love
Revolve around the world making everybody lose their minds
Can't you see her
Holding onto something before she wastes a light

And, I know it's so hard but you got to do right and let go

When you stub your toe, and stomp the ground, let all that profanity out of your mouth
Mmmm babe, got me thinking, lovely
You stand for yourself with nothing left
But your soul and your heart and a beat in your chest
Babe, got me thinking, lovely

How do you do it love
Revolve around the world making everybody lose their minds
Can't you see her
Holding onto something before she wastes her light

And, I know it's so hard but you got to do right and let go
And, I know it's so hard but you got to do right and let go

Don't you deny it
Your heart is on fire
I see it just lying there
Don't let it ruin your love

How do you do it love
Revolve around the world making everybody lose their minds
How do you do it love
Revolve around the world making everybody lose their minds
Can't you see her
Holding onto something before she wastes a life

And, I know it's so hard but you got to do right and let go
