Banks - Contaminated Lyrics




You wanna get to know me
You memorized the lines of my thighs
I knew before you told me you'd get it right
And you took the dark for granted
And you love me like you promised your wife
It's almost like you planned it in the daylight

Ooh, I can attain it
Ooh, I can attain it
Ooh, I can attain it
Ooh, I can attain it
Ooh, I can attain it
Ooh, I can attain it

I like the way you say it
Tell me the words you told me that day
Maybe if I could believe it I could just stay
'Cause I like the way you do it
Yeah I like the way you move it baby show me the way
I like the way you get it on the freeway

And I wish I could change it
And we're always gonna be contaminated
And oh, I know what we need
You start letting me go
Our love is tainted

You said they'd be against us
I say, "You care too much what they say"
You said, "Do me a favor, give me some faith"
'Cause you promised me you'd do it
You said, "Baby, let me prove it, look at me in the face
This is the face of someone who loves you, babe"

And I wish I could change it
And we're always gonna be contaminated
And oh, I know what we need
You start letting me go
Our love is tainted

You start letting me go
You start letting me go
(Stay)
You start letting me go
You start letting me go
(Stay)

And I wish I could change it
And we're always gonna be contaminated
And oh, I know what we need
You start letting me go
Our love is tainted
And I wish I could change it
And we're always gonna be contaminated
And oh, I know what we need
You start letting me go
('Cause our love is tainted)

Ooh, I can attain it
Ooh, I can attain it
Ooh, I can attain it
Ooh, I can attain it
Ooh, I can attain it

  2. hellothing

    i got chills on 4:02 and just throughout the verse that part is in like holy shit

  3. Victoria Shaddinger

    God I love her so much. So fucking lyrical. 😭🥺❤️ All of her songs speak to and shake me so hard. Banks has so much power in her words, it’s truly amazing.

  8. Karly Junk

    I can't even try to sing this song without a shaky voice. Well motherfucking done

  9. helixhis

    banks is the best we have

  10. MrGottaGetReady

    Sometimes, when you hear a song, you just believe it. All of the painful lyrics beautifully wrapped with the melodies and deep synth music and you get everything you could possibly want in a song. This is what I've always appreciated about Banks; She's so raw and vulnerable with her lyrics and how she sings them.

    beautiful but haunting sound excellent

  16. JK number5

    Thank you Amazon for recommending this album to me. You didn't have to, I've been bumping Banks since 2014 Goddess & 2016 The Alter

  17. Enamor 9

    Why can't an artist like her being on radio?

    "Always gonna be contamined"

  18. Phil Agbozo

    She is real.

  19. Jim Impas

    BANKS has this ability to get very personal with you. Like, the lyrics just have impeccable timing, sometimes I would stop mid song and just wonder how the hell she read me like that. This is my favorite from the record. Which is ironic because in Goddess, My favorite was Warm Water—because of how it perfectly captured the excitement with someone/something so unfamiliar. And now, contaminated, laments on that very familiarity—wishing she could change it, but its just too tainted. An underrated artist indeed. ❤️
