Rex Orange County – Face To Face

Face To Face Lyrics

I grew up
You grew down
We found out
Everything that is now
We grew up
While you let yourself down
I want out

She calmed me down that night I freaked out
We stayed up, I threw up in that house
She woke up face-to-face from the bed
Two in the en-suite, one in the early
She was like eight hours ahead
Two different countries slept in a one piece
Baby boy in full effect
And you couldn’t see me, call back repeat
That’s all thanks to poor connection
Fun for me, no
Most times it’s a pain in the neck
I said it’s not that fun, see
Everything makes me wanna quit while I’m ahead
Honestly

She wakes, we face-to-face from the bed
I wish I could be with her instead
When we speak face-to-face from the head
Things go wayward and I end up upset
But…

Maybe we grew outward
It’s true I kept the truth to myself
Now I’m nothing but a coward
And you were too busy making friends
You were occupied, I was in the shower
You were unaware I was fully clothed
And you didn’t know about this
But you wouldn’t even really need to know so
Continue picking flowers
Remember why you’re here, my friend
You can sit back and relax
And they’ll always love you now and then
They’ll always love you now and then
Always love you now and then
They’ll always love you
It’s true

She wakes, we face-to-face from the bed
I wish I could be with her instead
When we speak face-to-face from the head
Things go wayward and I end up upset
Let me be over there again
I wish I could be with her instead
Let me return for the night shift
I miss her like she’s my only friend
My only friend
A hundred percent

I unplugged then I dipped on my friends
My world got so much smaller this year
Tell me ’bout it

She wakes, we face-to-face from the bed
I wish I could be with her instead
When we speak face-to-face from the head
From the head, yeah
She wakes, we face-to-face from the bed
I wish I could be with her instead
When we speak face-to-face from the head
Things go wayward and I end up upset
Let me be over there again
I wish I could be with her instead
Let me return for the night shift
I miss her like she’s my only friend

I grew up
You grew down
We found out
Everything that is now
We grew up
Whilst you let yourself down
I want out
