Keep It Up – Ilana Charnelle

From the album Play Nice (2018).

I want you to come back so that I can say nothing
I want you to ask so I can turn you away
I want you to beg, to regret, to repent
But most of all I want you to see things my way

Like how you’d insist that you needed more of me
That I was neglectful, a mess and real mean
You’d run for the hills if I forgot to pet you
A lost puppy, always needing to be seen

You needed me there, I gave you up
So you ran into her arms to cry
You did what you’ve done, so you’ll get what you’ve got
I just hope that you can keep it up
Yeah, I just hope that you can keep it up

I just know that now you’re living the same way
In your fog of virtuous truth
But it’s her who’ll be yes-ing, and sweating and guessing
A slave to all the things that you have to do

Like hiding in bed when the going gets tricky
And following through is just too hard
Better to back out of responsibility
Coz you know you can’t fail if you never start

You wanna give up, it’s all too much
You need to suck everyone dry
You did what you’ve done, so you’ll get what you’ve got
I just hope that you can keep it up
Yeah, I just hope that you can keep it up

It’s funny before me, your last did the same thing
So you ran into my arms to cry
If it’s always the same thing, suffocating then blaming
Surely you would start wondering why

But you did what you’ve done, so you’ll get what you’ve got
But you did what you’ve done, so you’ll get what you’ve got
But you did what you’ve done, so you’ll get what you’ve got
I just hope that you can keep it up
Yeah, I just hope that you can keep it up
