i came here to get over you lyrics – brandon flowers

“i came here to get over you”

i came here thinking i could ease the pain
i came in spite of others’ good advice
i came here thinking sweet, sweet revenge
bring me some sugar, let the games begin

i made a lot of bad decisions but tonight i’m breaking through
i came here to get over you

i had this dream about a wild bird
black feathered picking at your beating heart
you reach for me and shout, “i need your love!”
yet soon collapses when i call your bluff

picking at your heart strings
i need your love

i started shaking when you told me that you found somebody new
i came here to get over you

and the lights are burning like kerosene
i can’t stop thinking about you and me
did you cross your fingers when you told me you’d be true?

i came here to get
i came here to get
i came here to get over you
i came here to get over you
i came here to get over you
i came here to get over you

i made a lot of bad decisions but tonight i’m breaking through
