Clairo - Partridge

You move in your ways without a law
And I'll force you to feel the weight I'm standing on
But the perfect harmony is lost
As I watch you fall awake and ask
"What's wrong? Did I really miss all the work you've done?"
All the work I've done

Calling someone else is only harder
I'll explain myself again
Take the chance on someone's daughter
She makes me feel like I'm the best

The only time I see you smile
Is after hours or the finish line
But bring yourself to the еdge
Of the cliff and look upon
The animals who will wakе before us at dawn
All the work they've done

Comfortable, unmotivated always
Seeking other stories, other memories
I'm sorry I have to hold you longer than you expected
It's only temporary

I'll let you walk and make your own discovery
That one of these days, I know that you might come back to me

“Partridge” deals with a one-sided relationship, where Clairo is the one giving it all to her partner. The reference of the partridge, a gallinaceous bird, in the title could refer to a verse of the Bible; Jeremiah 17 : 11 states: "As the partridge sitteth on eggs, and hatcheth them not; so he that getteth riches, and not by right, shall leave them in the midst of his days, and at his end shall be a fool." The partridge most likely refers to her partner, who only benefits from Clairo’s love and affection, without giving anything in return.
