Gasoline - Troye Sivan



The Experience: Troye Sivan called this his most 'personal' song on the TRXYE album. Gasoline deals with betraying love, apologizing, and wondering if I can really get better. 

Official Video: Waiting.  

The meaning of Gasoline is what my love needs, after failing you. "You deserve a forever, not a boy looking for better.Troye pulls in the tension between having cheated, having used a girl as a one-night-stand, and knowing that's the only way he knows how to love... and the regret and emptiness of "I can't look you in the eye." Solution? Troye needs the girl who believes in "forever" to clean him ("bathe me"), to teach him to love as intensely as gasoline

Ask yourself: We all know love deserves a forever... But it's so hard... How can anyone live up to that kind of love?


LYRICS:
I smell heartbreak on my hands
I feel sick to my stomach as I begin to stand
I see your outline in my bed
In the same spot I watched him rest his head
I’ve done you wrong, I regret it
I write this song, try to forget it
I feel this emptiness in my chest
It feels surreal, but I’m feeling stressed
I need to do something
I f-cked up, for nothing
Now I gotta just tell someone
Tell someone what I’ve done

Please bathe me now, wash me clean
Just set my heart on fire, like gasoline
Bathe me now, wash me clean
Just set my heart on fire, like gasoline
Oh no, like gasoline

I wake up, the morning after
You call but I don’t answer
And I can’t look you in the eye, no matter how hard I try
You deserve a forever, not a boy looking for better
But as long as you’re still here, I’ll try to keep you near

Please bathe me now, wash me clean
Just set my heart on fire, like gasoline
Bathe me now, yeah, wash me clean
Just set my heart on fire, like gasoline

Please bathe me now, wash me clean
Just set my heart on fire, like gasoline
Bathe me now, yeah, wash me clean
Just set my heart on fire, like gasoline

Bathe me now, wash me clean
Just set my heart on fire, just like gasoline
