​Your Visits Are Getting Shorter

This song is by Bloc Party and appears on the US release, UK deluxe edition, and 2009 reissue of the album Intimacy (2008).

I can see it in your eyes now
You have come to resent me
Condescension
In the silence
Your fingers are tired, girl
How they falter against my thigh
Your kisses are pining
For the lips of someone else

Your visits getting shorter
Your heart is getting further from me
Your touch is getting colder
Always somewhere you need to be

Boys in blue blazers
Boys on your right
Boys in your maths class
Who'll do anything you ask

You're pulling the trigger
And the gun is in my mouth
A subtle annoyance
Laced with disgust
When you get older
And those boys grow tired of you
You can come find me
I can never hate you

Your visits getting shorter
Your heart is getting further from me
Your touch is getting colder
Always somewhere you need to be

Boys on your left side
Boys on your right
Boys by your locker
Who'll do anything you ask

Let's spend the whole day in bed then
'Cause if we don't you'll want to, want to leave
I try to hold something I can
I try to hold something I can never keep

Your visits getting shorter
Your heart is getting further from me
Your touch is getting colder
Always somewhere you need to be

Boys on your left side
Boys on your right
Boys by your locker
Who'll do anything you ask
