Conan Gray - Alley Rose Lyrics

 

Conan Gray - Alley Rose Lyrics


I picked you up from the corner store

Your eyes were red and your lips were torn

So much to say, that's subject-sore

So much you'd change since you were born

You wrapped your fingers around my neck

And pulled me into your desperate breath

The way you kissed me hot and fast

I knew it'd be the last


Don't leave me hanging alone again

Don't leave me hanging alone again

Oh, where'd you go, go?

Alley Rose

Oh, where'd you go, go, go?


You told me, "I'm just so nervous, dear"

Well, how the hell do you think I feel?

I waited all year at your feet

Like maybe you'd love me


So-oh, don't leave me hanging alone again

Don't leave me hanging alone again

Oh, where'd you go, go?

Alley Rose

Oh, where'd you go, go, go?


And I don't even care if it makes me sound insane

I ran my fingers through your hair

And I thanked God to touch the flame

'Cause I swore necks were made for bruisin'

I swore lips were made for lies

And I thought if you'd ever leave me

That I'd be the reason why

And I don't even care if it's just a summer fling

If it's all experimental and you go back to safer things

But I swore hands were made for fighting

I swore eyes were made to cry

But you're the first person that I've seen

Who's proven that might be a lie


So, don't leave me hanging alone again

Don't leave me hanging

Oh, where'd you go, go?

Alley Rose

Oh, where'd you go, go, go?

Oh-oh, don't leave me hanging alone again

Don't leave me hanging alone again

Oh, where'd you go, go?

Alley Rose

Oh, where'd you go, go, go?


Don't leave me hanging alone again

I thought that I was your only friend

Oh, where'd you go, go?

Alley Rose

Oh, where'd you go, go, go?
