Foals What Went Down Lyrics

(Verse)
I buried my heart in a hole in the ground
With the lights & the roses & the cowards downtown
They threw me a party, there was no one around
They tried to call my girl but she could not be found
I buried my guilt in a pit in the sand
With the rust & the vultures & the trash downtown
So don't step to me, kid, u'll neva be found
Cos' while u were sleepin', I took ova ur town

(Chorus)
When I see a man, I see a liar
When I see a man, I see a liar
U're the apple of my eye, of my eye, of my eye
U're the apple of my eye, of my eye, won't you

(Verse 2)
I fell for a girl with a port white stain
I knew her initials, but neva her name
I tried & I tried & I was neva the same
So held on, threw love & I'm foreva changed

(Chorus)

(Post-Chorus)
Give up my money, give up my name, take it away
I'll give it away, I'll give it away, I'll give it
When I see a man, I see a liar
When I see a man, I see a liar

(Bridge)
When I see a man, I see a liar
When I see a man, I see a liar
U're the apple of my eye, of my eye, of my eye
U're the apple of my eye, of my eye, won't you
Give up my money, give up my name, take it away
I'll give it away, give it away, I'll give it
I'm a sympathetic animal, I'm a sympathetic animal
I'm a sympathetic animal
Break up the chain, I'll break up the chain, I'll break it
Give it away, I'll give it away, I'll give it
When I see a man, I see a liar
When I see a man, I see a liar
U're the apple of my eye, of my eye, of my eye
U're the apple of my eye, of my eye, won't you
Give up my money, give up my name, take it away
Give it away, give it away, I'll give it
See u again, I'll see u again, I'll see you
Give it away, I'll give it away, I'll give it
When I feel low, when I feel low, I feel it
When I see a man, I see a liar
When I see a man, I see a liar
U're the apple of my eye, of my eye, of my eye
U're the apple of my eye, of my eye, won't you
