yeah you sure get words outta me pullin teeth where no teeth should be barometric pressure’s down i can feel the impending storm all over this town and it’s worse than i remember irredeemably alone in mid-december i’ll admit that i’m embarassed that it took so long for me to up and confess but in the night sky you shine like venus i’m just an asteroid 2 AU between us but that doesn’t seem so far i’m dreamin of the sunset and cable cars if you don't make me any promises we’ll be just fine and on new years the sky’s on fire im needing you with a rapt desire who knows if it will last cuz shallow hearts get filled so fast

Tag Along 03:39
never thought i’d be the kinda person who gets upset when their phone dies on the bus ride home but i can’t remember a time when i talked to anyone else with the softness and the frequency that i do with you sometimes i feel like an old dog that you’re happy to see but worried to love too much cuz you know it’s just a matter of time so before you go won’t you hold me and swear it won’t be for long if this is real won’t you show me just say the word and i’ll be happy to tag along i can only say how much i’m missing you a few times a day before i start to sound like a cable news network hungry for a good story and my friends get annoyed with how i’m always somewhere else cuz my mind’s a few hundred miles down the western coast sometimes i feel like i’m about to explode from the anticipation of your incoming call from any notification at all and i can’t take it much longer i can’t take it much longer it’s a good thing that we’re so close when we’re apart so before you go won’t you hold me and promise it won’t be long if this is real won’t you show me just say the word and i’ll be happy to tag along

Stars 05:29
We’re not exactly friends right now and we’re far from lovers i still feel close to you somehow but there are masks between us our faces always covered look to the stars and see me always look to the moon and i’ll see you too beyond the sky, we’ll be together long ago and someday soon i’m the wind that paints the darkness you are friendship’s great protector & tho you’re strong enough without me i wanna be w you right now not just when we’re older *chorus* there’s a sadness in our lives that keeps us going it’ll be there til the end we all have stars in our hearts burning brightly and they’ll burn forever with no worlds left to defend *chorus x2*

its been a month of sleeping on some rando's floor cuz city rent, who can afford it anymore we're losing dead-end jobs to take time off to tour hey man its worth it if we were honest from the start we wouldn’t end up breaking hearts we all out here in this mess together and we’re all gonna die so huddle closer with friends and family let’s scream our last goodbye we’re all in pain in ways we can’t articulate poundin gin and cheerwine at a less than healthy rate the abyss stares back at us and with every look we wind up blushing if we were honest from the start we wouldn’t end up breaking hearts (chorus) every day is sisyphean we're all just rolling shit uphill but with the nights that we got left let's make something beautiful (beautiful) (chorus X 2)

Dagger 03:44
learned the shape of your hands on a near-empty train with your head on my shoulder staring out at the rain and you pulled me apart and you put me together for a hot fuckin minute things could not have been better a part of me knew that this was all fleeting the life we had dreamed of would die upon meeting spent the weekend in bed in a mess of your hair and wind battered the windows to score the affair i still remember your taste and the curve of your back how with just one look you could give me panic attacks in that queen anne hotel room of withering flowers i let down my guard and the world, it was ours now your ghost haunts the sidewalks from Mercer to Jackson i’m weak and pathetic, having such a reaction to the places we spent such a short chunk of time it means nothing to you, no the burden’s all mine you can’t take all the credit i’ve been rekt from the start you just buried a dagger of hope in my heart
7.
it’s been weeks since our last easy conversation the proper words in short supply and each “how you been” comes with too much hesitation since our whole deal has gone awry i walked down 200 steps on my way to golden gardens felt the burning in my thighs and with each cigarette my unease became a burden so i spit it out into the tide stay in my heart for just a little longer cuz i dont wanna let you go but it’s all up in flames and i’ve nothing left to offer gonna sit and watch the fire grow sometimes dreams have to die to let new ones live sometimes dreams have to die to let new ones live sometimes dreams have to die to let new ones live don’t spend too much time lamenting them

((Alright)) 05:29
i can hide from the sun if i close my eyes orchestrate the finer points of my own demise I'm wakin up from dreams I left behind there are nights when you're still on my mind but it’s alright try and be friendly try and be nice say yes to everything and don’t think twice til my expectations are all rewired and i let go of all i once desired til it’s alright keep my shit together for 2 hours at a time when you’re worthless, self-harm is a victimless crime the moon hangs lonesome in the sky tonight im fadin out tryin to burn so bright but it’s alright it’s 5am and there’s cops at the door cuz i made some promises i’ve made before someone thought i’d finally take the dive but my phone just died - i’m still alive im still alright

December 03:55
I’m still internalizing reasons we couldn’t make it through the season got too many songs about you what would this year have been without you and all apologies are comin straight from me right back where we started kinda broken hearted thinkin’ back to last december to things i’d rather not remember but when i find a painful feeling leaning in seems so appealing you’re the one mistake i thought i’d never make again right back where we started kinda broken hearted right back where we started kinda broken hearted one of us deserving for bein undiscerning

shuffle home with your tail between your tired legs in the pouring rain resignation gets easier when everything’s goin down the drain find it hard to figure out where to take your life from here when every moment makes you want to fucking disappear how you gonna put your life back together you lonely sack of shit now that you're truly all alone you got so much goin for you self pity don't look good on no one least of all not you but let's be realistic pour another 40 down your throat til u forget how good u are at reliving your regrets
