That I Do

This song is by Wye Oak and appears on the album The Knot (2009).

I wish you didn't need it anymore
I understand exactly what you use it for
And better isn't always doing well
I know because I'm better now myself

And it's true, I need it too
But not the way that you do

I wish I didn't love you quite as much
The reason that we never talk and never touch
Is the same reason that I have never done enough
To show you that you never needed to go to another

And it's true, you love me too
But not the way that I do

I wish I didn't hold you to your word
Ignited and decided, they are undeserved
I've never discovered when to stop
That giant made of stone came down off the mountain top

See, it's true, I lie to you
But not as bad as you do
And it's true, I need it too
But not the way that you do
