Melanie Martinez – Next Time It Rains Lyrics

Next Time It Rains Lyrics by Melanie Martinez

Just ’cause I bought a Band-Aid
Doesn’t mean I’m able to clean the scars
That run deeper than all my old demons
That I keep under still water
Just ’cause you gave me flowers
Doesn’t cover up the smell of dead body
You raised a dead body
Of a girl who got shot down before
Just ’cause you cracked the window
Doesn’t mean I’m able to clear the air
It made it hard to breathe before you came around here
Just ’cause you say you love me
Doesn’t mean that I’m gonna look you in the eyes
Pretend to be surprised and say I love you back

Cause I’m trippin’, trippin’ on rocks
Cuttin’ on my ankles where I know the blood stops
Blue, blue knees
All over the next man who breathes

I need a Band-Aid, recovery
Don’t get too close ’cause you’re really nothing to me
You’re just a Band-Aid on my knee
You’re just a Band-Aid, recovery
I’ll rip you off when I bleed
I’ll rip you off when I bleed

Just ’cause I’m comin’ over
Doesn’t mean I’ll be there when you wake up
‘Cause comin’ over doesn’t mean that I’m over him
Just ’cause you are my Band-Aid
Doesn’t mean I want you to stick around
‘Cause rebounds get washed away the next time it rains

Cause I’m trippin’, trippin’ on rocks
Cuttin’ on my ankles where I know the blood stops
Blue, blue knees
All over the next man who breathes

I need a Band-Aid, recovery
Don’t get too close ’cause you’re really nothing to me
You’re just a Band-Aid on my knee
You’re just a Band-Aid, recovery
I’ll rip you off when I bleed
I’ll rip you off when I bleed
