about

In this poppy electronic number, Lex pleads to a former lover to forgive her, and reminds him that they'll always have Havana.

lyrics

I know I hurt you deep
but right before I fall asleep
I see you at the end of a hallway
and I just keep walking on the other way
despite you calling me to stay
it's a new thing

and I know I killed you slowly
but I know what I did was right
it doesn't mean I don't miss ya
and right before you fall asleep on a Monday night
I hope you don't see me leaving your arena

I know everything I said wasn't stand-up
maybe we could still meet in a dream sometime, in Havana

and it was my fault in the first place
that I dragged you into that headspace
dinner on the table, kids, a wife at your feet,
but you always knew my plans were larger than the
biggest backyard we could ever have had
on Olive Street

and you blew through my mind like a summertime cyclone
and you bore into my soul worse than the quietest night alone
and how could any of us have foreseen
much less you or me
I'd end up being the hurricane
that could tear your heart away

and I know everything I said wasn't stand-up
maybe we could still meet in a dream sometime, in Havana
