Giving Me Away

After my rant post from yesterday, I’m thinking I need to follow up with some levity. So… here’s a song! Life’s been pretty amazing lately and I find myself putting this jam on all of my playlists again so I need to share the amazingness with those of you who haven’t heard it yet. “Giving Me Away” by Betty Who  is about that chaotic feeling you have internally when you start liking/falling for someone, which sounds wildly juvenile but it’s definitely a feeling everyone and their mother can relate to. I’ve been obsessed with it for months and I’m so happy it’s back in my regular rotation. Check it out here.

If it’s all the same to you
Can I fall asleep next to you?
I’ve been waiting to hear you breathe
‘Cause without it I can’t sleep

With your hands all through my hair
You’re holding onto all the air
Judging from how we’ve been
You should kiss me like you mean it again
‘Cause I don’t wanna be your friend

Call me pretty young thing
Make me weak until I’m speechless
Falling into you

Hear my mad machine gun heartbeat
Pounding right beside you
Giving me away
Giving me away

Did you know that when you laugh
It tears my heart in half
When I feel you look my way
I keep feeling you all day

God gave me with this just one hand
But he gave to you with all he had
And when our feet are intertwined
I feel your blood in mine, feed those veins
Oh, how I want you to stay

Call me pretty young thing
Make me weak until I’m speechless
Falling into you

Hear my mad machine gun heartbeat
Pounding right beside you
Giving me away
Giving me away

What was I supposed to do?
Laying in life when next to you
What am I supposed to do
With you, with you?

Call me pretty young thing
Make me weak until I’m speechless
Falling into you

Hear my mad machine gun heartbeat
Pounding right beside you
Giving me away
Giving me away
