Foals – What Went Down lyrics

[Verse 1]
I buried my heart in a hole in the ground
With the lights and the roses and 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

[Verse 2]

I buried my guilt in a pit in the sand

With the rust and the vultures and the trash downtown

So don’t step to me, kid, you’ll never be found

Cause while you were sleeping, I took over your town

[Chorus]

When I see a man, I see a lion

When I see a man, I see a liar

You’re the apple of my eye, of my eye, of my eye

You’re the apple of my eye, of my eye, I want ya

[Verse 3]

I fell for a girl with a port-wine stain

I knew her initials but never her name

I tried and I tried and I was never the same

So no longer felt love and I’m forever changed

[Chorus]

When I see a man, I see a lion

When I see a man, I see a liar

You’re the apple of my eye, of my eye, of my eye

You’re the apple of my eye, of my eye, I want ya

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 lion

When I see a man, I see a liar

[Bridge]

[Outro]

When I see a man, I see a lion

When I see a man, I see a liar

You’re the apple of my eye, of my eye, of my eye

You’re the apple of my eye, of my eye, I want ya

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

I’m a sycophantic animal, I’m a sycophantic fool, I’m a sycophantic fool, I know

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 lion

When I see a man, I see a liar

You’re the apple of my eye, of my eye, of my eye

You’re the apple of my eye, of my eye, I want ya

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

See you again, I’ll see you again, I’ll see ya

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 lion

When I see a man, I see a liar

You’re the apple of my eye, of my eye, of my eye

You’re the apple of my eye, of my eye, I want ya
