Allday – Protection lyrics

[Chorus]

Oh my baby now, if you knew

But you only look out for you

Since you left, I’m heavy drinking

You gave up just way too easy

Oh my baby now, if you knew

But you only look out for you

Since you left, I lack direction

No longer in your protection

[Verse 1]

Last cigarette on your final drag

At the end of your cul-de-sac

Leave you on read, how cold is that

I think this place will hold you back

Had to change a lot to change our view

What the hell was I meant to do

All these angles and you had to be obtuse

But none of these problems are acute

And this is not cute

[Chorus]

Oh my baby now, if you knew

But you only look out for you

Since you left, I’m heaving drinking

You gave up just way too easy

Oh my baby now, if you knew

But you only look out for you

Since you left, I lack direction

No longer in your protection

[Verse 2]

On my car roof beneath the power lines

Talking ’bout the future then it just arrives

You slept on my sofa like every night

Doing any job around to get us by

You missed every birthday, every New Year’s Eve

For that money now you’re buying useless things

You were never happy being a human being

Is anyone up there as blue as me

Wherever you may be

[Interlude]

Archangel Michael, protect me from all negative spirits

You know what I’m saying, protect me from all negative spirits

Protect me from lower vibrational beings

You know what I’m saying, nothing’s going to mess with you

Because you’ve got the protection

[Verse 3]

Yeah, our family name has curses

And some magic they can’t purchase

Me and that city linked, it’s cursive

But I had to go all in, immersive

And they’ll hit you, hope you stay down

In your best jeans with your chain out

While you’re wedged into a Greyhound

On the main road heading straight out

[Chorus]

Oh my baby now, if you knew

But you only look out for you

Since you left, I’m heaving drinking

You gave up just way too easy

Oh my baby now, if you knew

But you only look out for you

Since you left, I lack direction

No longer in your protection
