Catfish And The Bottlemen - Sidetrack Lyrics




I got off a plane
As if you're holding up a card with my second name
For a start
Will you wait for me?

'Cause the driver insists
If we're gonna duck the traffic then we'll take the bridge
So we do
And you wait for me

'Cause when I think about it
Everything about it
Just led me up your drive again
You're saying I
Should be everything you want

Now I'm not being sidetracked
By all that's been asked of me
Yes I'll be needing that life back
Before I'm feeling the backlash

And you try shifting blame
But if I'm tryna talk to God and she's forgot your name
You won't get through
But you wait for me

And the driver insisted
Now we took the quickest route, but God I'm not convinced
Now that's through
I'm far away from you

Cause when I think about it
Everything about it
Just led me up your drive again
You're saying I
Should be everything you want

Now I'm not being sidetracked
By all that's been asked of me
Yes I'll be needing that life back
Before I'm feeling the backlash

I'm going out of the prospect
Haven't you thrown enough at me
And you're not feeling the exact
Same feelings for me back
Yeah, fuck that

For all I know I always try
To meet you A.S.A.P, why?
'Cause nothing ever good when you're stuck on the line

Now I'm not being sidetracked
By all that's been asked of me
Yes I'll be needing that life back
Before I'm feeling the backlash

I still go mad at the prospect
Oh you throw enough at me
And you're not feeling the exact
Same feelings for me back
Yeah, fuck that

    I've got
    Off a plane
    As if you’re holding up a card with my second name

    Will you wait for me?
    ‘Cause the driv-er, insists
    That if we're gonna duck the traffic then we take the bridge
    So we do
    Will you wait for me?

    [Pre-Chorus]
    When I think about it
    Everything about it

    [Bridge]
    For all I know I always tried to meet you A.S.A.P, what?
    Cause nothing’s ever good
    Unless there’s something on the line

    [Chorus]
    And now I’m not being sidetracked
    By all that’s been asked of me
    Yes I'll be needing that life back
