I Should Live in Salt Lyrics

Don't make me read your mind
You should know me better than that
It takes me too much time
You should know me better than that
You're not that much like me
You should know me better than that
We have different enemies
You should know me better than that

I should leave it alone but you're not right
I should leave it alone but you're not right

Can't you write it on the wall?
You should know me better than that
There's no room to write it all
You should know me better than that
Can you turn the TV down?
You should know me better than that
There's too much crying in the sound
I should know you better than that

I should leave it alone but you're not right
I should leave it alone but you're not right
I should live in salt for leaving you behind
Behind

Think about something so much
You should know me better than that
Start to slide out of touch
You should know me better than that
Tell yourself it's all you know
You should know me better than that
Learn to appreciate the void
You should know me better than that

I should live in salt for leaving you behind
Behind
I should live in salt for leaving you behind
Behind

I should live in salt for leaving you behind
Behind

I Should Live in Salt Meanings

Inspired by this track's title, travels me back in the early school years when one day, we were reading a story about a guy who asked her princess how much he loved her, she responded "I ove you like the salt"... The teacher then explained us why this sentence was so heavy and deep, despite the fact that it hit a wall again, when I tried it on my mum during that day's lunch..
