Angel Olsen Enemy Lyrics

I need advice it’s true

But I won’t hear it from you

I don’t remember when

You last cared for the things I did

I wish I could believe

Apply all the sides you’ve seen

Or you could be the only one

Who knows the truth of me

Am I the ugly one?

It’s easy to see past

All of the kindness that you’ve offered me

It doesn’t last

It’s just a thought I’ve had

If I could show you how

I came to think this way

Maybe you’d understand me now

Sometimes our enemies

Are closer than we think

Sometimes the ones we trust

May have to give up listening

I wish it were the same

As it is in my mind

I’d lie to learn a thing or two

Give me a reason why

Why am I not ashamed?

While I am standing still

You want to move in me like you did before

But I’ve had my fill

You say your time has changed

That you have faced defeat

We might be older now

But is it changing anything?

It could be in a way

We’ve learned to carry well

Oh how I wish I could

Remove this doubt I feel somehow

I want the best for you

So I won’t look your way

Maybe the clouds will clear

And I’ll be seeing you someday

I wish it were the same

As it is in my mind

I am lighter on my feet

When I’ve left some things behind
