Drink you away

Baby I'll leave all the lights on in the apartment
So that when I come back home it feels like you're still here
But everytime I step through the door
I get that there's no longer an "us" anywhere but in my head¹
 
On Friday evenings when friends are going out
I go along but not because of them
I'm crazy - like Britney when she lost her hair
And by drinking I'm seeking peer support
 
Hey
Now you're jumping into someone else's ride
And I'm drowning in my feelings
That's why every weekend I drink you away again and again
But it helps like shit
It's distressing when you're not with me
That's why every weekend I drink you away again and again
 
Weekdays are too much for me
When you have to get up early and make coffee alone
But I do it because you won't make me remember it
What you smelled like in the morning and that you made me skip my jobs
 
On Friday evenings when friends are going out
I go along but not because of them
I'm crazy - like Britney when she lost her hair
And by drinking I'm seeking peer support
 
Hey
Now you're jumping into someone else's ride
And I'm drowning in my feelings
That's why every weekend I drink you away again and again
But it helps like shit
It's distressing when you're not with me
That's why every weekend I drink you away again and again
 
Do you need forever to come talk to me?
To come to talk (to me)
You won't see Tinder bandages or Rum Cokes helping me forget you
They won't help to forget
 
Hey
Now you're jumping into someone else's ride
And I'm drowning in my feelings
That's why every weekend I drink you away again and again
But it helps like shit
It's distressing when you're not with me
That's why every weekend I drink you away again and again
 
Bedankt!

Hi, just a couple of comments Regular smile

  • Viikonpäivii on mun mielest ihan liikaa -> There are way too many days in a week, I think (I guess this refers to the singer going out every Friday, which he is waiting for)
  • Mut teen sen siks et se saa mut muistamaan -> But I do it because it remembers me of
  • Ei nää [=nämä] Tinder-laastarit tai rommikokikset auta mua sua unohtamaan -> These Tinder bandages or Rum Cokes are not helping me forget you

Otherwise a very good translation Regular smile
