Video: Wye Oak: “That I Do”

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 took another touch
is the same reason that I never have done enough
to show you that you never needed to earn my love

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, undecided they are undeserved
and never discovered when to stop
the giant made of stone came down off the mountaintop

see it’s true, I lie to you
but not as well as you do

and it’s true, I need it too
but not the way that you do

(From the album The Knot)
