Personal Worst (single version)

from Personal Worst single by Dog On A Swing



This song is from the forthcoming After Work EP.


When I'm tired
When I'm at my second-last best
Will you hold me
Even when I've picked a fight?

When I've done
My personal worst
I tried and tried but set
My personal worst

If everyone on the bus
Is talking shop
When I escape
Could you please pick me up?

When the sight of one more person
Fills me up with bile
Can you help me spit it out,
Spit it out?

When I'm at
My personal worst
I tried and tried but set
My personal worst

But in return, I'll see
To your every need
Let us savour
The quiet nights inside

When you're at
Your personal worst
You tried and tried but set
Your personal worst

Can we switch off our phones and dim the lights?
