Red Flags Lyrics

[Verse 1: Rachel Lorin]
I'll never understand how you call yourself a man
With your hands wrapped around my throat
Pushing me around, kick me when I'm down
How could anybody be so cold

[Pre-Chorus: Rachel Lorin]
All the signs kept telling me that I should f**king run
I just kept avoiding and mistaking it for love
'Cause my heart won't believe when my brain is telling me to leave

[Chorus: Rachel Lorin]
So I made a promise, I wouldn't fall for this
I'll never let you haunt me again
If I'm being honest, we never could solve this
I hate that I fell back in your bed
I finally see the red flags, blood red
Red flags, blood red
Red flags, blood red
Red flags, blood red

[Verse 2: Rachel Lorin]
You smile when I'm scared, pull me by my hair
Hide the bruises, wipe the tears
Then shower me with flowers, begging me for hours
To say nothing happened here

[Pre-Chorus: Rachel Lorin]
All the signs kept telling me that I should f**king run
I just kept avoiding and mistaking it for love
'Cause my heart won't believe when my brain is telling me to leave

[Chorus: Rachel Lorin]
So I made a promise, I wouldn't fall for this
I'll never let you haunt me again
If I'm being honest, we never could solve this
I hate that I fell back in your bed
I finally see the red flags, blood red (Oh-oh)
Red flags, blood red (Oh-oh)
Red flags, blood red (Oh-oh)
Red flags, blood red (Oh-oh)

[Post-Chorus: Rachel Lorin]
Red flags, blood red
Red flags, blood red
Red flags, blood red
Red flags, blood red, red, red, red, red

[Bridge: Rachel Lorin]
I'll never understand how you call yourself a man
With your hands wrapped around my throat
I'll never understand how you call yourself a man
With your hands wrapped around my throat

[Chorus: Rachel Lorin]
So I made a promise, I wouldn't fall for this
I'll never let you haunt me again
If I'm being honest, we never could solve this
I hate that I fell back in your bed
I finally see the red flags, blood red (Oh-oh)
Red flags, blood red (Oh-oh)
Red flags, blood red (Oh-oh)
Red flags, blood red
