Lyrics for Without You by Perfume Genius:

Verse 1
It's the strangest feeling
Unknown even
Almost good
It's a blurry shape
It's a jumbled tape
But sound

Pre-Chorus
It's enough, not too loud
Just enough to find the trace
It's enough, in the mirror
I can almost find your face

Chorus
You know it's been such a long, long time
Without you
Without you

Verse 2
It's the strangest feeling
Unknown even
Almost good
With the dark still swinging
So long chasing
Satisfaction's a lowly thing
Or so she tells me

Pre-Chorus
Underneath the feeling
I'm feeling something
When the center falls out
At least I'll have the spring

Chorus
You know it's been such a long, long time
Without you
Without you

Bridge
It's the strangest feeling
Unknown even
Almost good
With the dark still swinging
It's enough, not too loud (So long chasing)
Just enough to find the trace (Satisfaction's a lowly thing)
(Or so she tells me)
It's enough, in the mirror (Underneath the feeling)
I can almost find your face
(I'm feelin' something)
It's enough, in the mirror (When the center falls out)
I can almost find a trace
(At least I'll have the spring)

Chorus
You know it's been such a long, long time
Without you

Song Facts

In an interview with Pitchfork, Hadreas stated: “This song is about when I liked what I saw in the mirror as it actually was, but it was brief. It wasn’t a lasting feeling. Sometimes when I look in the mirror it’s kind of a jumble to me. It’s dysmorphia. But that brief time when everything made sense was sustaining, and knowing that that’s available is comforting. To make a country song about body dysmorphia is really sick to me.”

Perfume Genius Breaks Down Every Song on His Beguiling New Album, Set My Heart on Fire ImmediatelyPitchfork
Mike Hadreas' fifth album as Perfume Genius thrums with an intoxicating physical energy. Set My Heart on Fire Immediately follows through on urgency of its title, which emerged after Hadreas took part in a series of intense modern dance performances last year in a show called " The Sun Still Burns Here."
