Clenching your fists on the wheel
Saying it's fine, hold my hand, say you're mine
Reflexes kick in, my ex lover's words from your mouth
Baby you're okay
We're okay

The song that plays on as the titanic sinks
The look in your eye when you're lost in your drink
The anchors ain't sinking, we're drifting to sea
When saying I love you becomes muscle memory
Muscle memory

Fingers they fumble for answers
Push down the keys like it's nothing to me
Saying i'm sorry, i play to make up
Make the call take the fall and wake up
Baby wake up

The feeling you get when it hurts just to be
Letting the ocean just push and pull me
The anchors ain't sinking we're drifting to sea
When saying I love you becomes muscle memory

I can keep saying it's fine but it won't break the tide
And it won't make you mine
I could keep lying to you but we both know it's true
That all that we do is muscle memory
Muscle memory
Muscle memory
