partner Lyrics – Ada Lea

still reeling from last night’s activities
too many friends, too much wine
and this cab is moving too slowly down parc avenue
it’s 3 pm, Paris time

still feeling some kind of magic
didn’t sleep at all last night
stayed up and watched her move
in her green dress and ivory shoes

now you see it coming now you see it now
you cannot even imagine what it feels like
better now than never to know the back of your head
was i only a friend
that’s who i am that’s who I am

every road we walk leads to a dead-end
full of lovers just loving you until the end
full of lovers just loving you until you’re dead

you’re the last person i thought i’d see at this party, here tonight
but you spoke it in such a way
there was no knowing what you really meant to say

the cab lets me off at the diner just for memory’s sake
and i sit at the same booth with tears in my eyes begging
won’t you admit you’re giving up on me too quick

last year you were sitting in the diner with neon lights shining and back at our place a breakdown that was happening
baby got the blues so bad that she’s crying and making a show to her friends on the phone
crawling in the kitchen
pup and cat watching
dragging my face on the tiles that were matching
the blue of her dress
the makeup that is running
you know it’s just my way of saying i regret things

driving through the city
speeding over 50
calling just to hear you say that you still love me
the music on the radio
playing our favourite song to show you everything’s connected

and she is a dancer with no partner
that’s what they call her

now you see it coming now you see it now you
cannot even imagine what it feels like
better now than never to know the back of your head
was i only a friend? that’s who i am that’s who I am
every road we walk leads to a dead-end
full of lovers just loving you until the end
full of lovers just loving you until you’re dead

she’s a dancer with no partner
that’s what they call her
