Banks - Stroke Lyrics




You want me
You want me
Want me to stroke your ego
Beg for it
Die for it mmm
I got the touch placebo
Nothing that you wouldn't do
Lie to get back in my room
'Cause that's what narcissists do
You want me
You want me
Want me to stroke

Say it's hard to breathe inside my ocean
I give you the deep but your still floating
You would let me drown to save your own life
Don't think I can't see your soul is soaking

It's always in my head
Everything is always about you
You tell me you're a book that I misread
You just wanna tell me what to do

You want me
You want me
Want me to stroke your ego
Beg for it
Die for it mmm
I got the touch placebo
Nothing that you wouldn't do
Lie to get back in my room
'Cause that's what narcissists do
You want me
You want me
Want me to stroke

Gather all your money make a symphony
I looked it over and the thing got steeper
And even though you wanted me sweet you could call me savory
You're treading water and the thing got deeper

It's always in my head
Everything is always about you
(You used to get it on the low)
You tell me you're a book that I misread
(You always said I was your type)
(You said you got it down below)
You just wanna tell me what to do
(You wanna give it to me right)

Tell me you're so good at it
Good at it
You say you don't wanna quit
And you
You say you won't run out of love
Out of love
Say you got enough of it for two
I'm ended up
You been invited
You been telling me - now I'm afraid
You running up to the table invited
You want a taste of my own lemonade

You want me
You want me
Want me to stroke your ego
Beg for it
Die for it mmm
I got the touch placebo
Nothing that you wouldn't do
Lie to get back in my room
'Cause that's what narcissists do
You want me
You want me
Want me to stroke

Banks Stroke Comments
  1. Lolita

    te amo mamãe

  2. ajsuflena

    So pretty

  3. Nick J

    Yikes visuals

  4. L A

    Since a lot of people mentioned she was healing from narcisstic abuse and the sound here is very saturated and "distorted" maybe she was inspired by the fact that Narcissists distort reality and alter your perception of reality!

    Feels like the distortion/disruption in the sound is like an intervention of your private space/reality/dimension. A very creative way to look at it, I guess.

  5. SHima Jalaeian

    Everything about this album is perfect

  6. Anil G

    Play this on 0.75x speed and thank me later

  7. Marta Souza

    eu tô aq pensando... será q no vídeo os dois homens se beijando n significa o mesmo homem se beijando como simbolismo do narcisismo?

  8. Marta Souza

    babando......

  9. Lolita

  17. Alex Rojass

    Say it's hard to breathe inside my ocean
    I gave you the deep, but you're still floating
    You would let me drown to save your own life
    Don't think I can't see your soul is soaking
    It's always in my head
    Everything is always about you
    You tell me you're a book that I misread
    You just wanna tell me what to do, ooh whoa whoa
    You want me, you want me
    Want me to stroke your ego
    Beg for it, beg for it
    I got the touch, placebo
    Nothin' that you wouldn't do
    Ride it, get my back in my room
    'Cause that's what narcissists do
    You want me, you want me
    Want me to stroke
    Girl, the way you moan, you make a symphony
    I left it open, the thing got steeper
    Even though you wanna be sweet, could call me savory
    You tried to wander and the wound got deeper
    It's always in my head
    'Cause you think it's always about you (you used to think that I'm yours)
    You tell me you're a book that I misread (you always said I was your type
    (You say you want it down below) you just wanna tell me what to do, ooh whoa oh
    (You wanna give it to me right)
    Tell me you're so good at it, good at it
    You say don't wanna quit, oh you
    You say you ran right out of love, out of love
    Say you got enough of it for two
    Wind it up, keep me waiting
    You've been tellin' me that I'm afraid
    You will have to do me, baby
    You wanna taste my lemonade, yeah
    You want me, you want me
    Want me to stroke your ego
    Beg for it, beg for it
    I got the touch, placebo
    Nothin' that you wouldn't do
    Ride it, get my back in my room
    'Cause that's what narcissists do
    You want me, you want me
    Want me to (stroke)
