Track Name: Lifesaver
I go to sleep because I need an escape, I usually find myself in bed all day.
Pressing my eyes into the back of my mind, all this stress leaving me blind.
And I would stay up to fight, until we got confused, and you were talking to the moon.
With a sky like glue, oh I’ll be stuck to you.

Tears in your eyes when we say goodbye.
Don’t think that I forget all the times that you cried.
Tried to stay away from your feminine side.
Scoff as you walk since you swallowed your pride.
You’re letting him get under your skin,
Oh I can feel it in your thighs when you tremble terrified.
But with eyes that blue, oh I’ll be touching you.

Playing the records that I watched you buy,
It was a warm summer day but we stayed inside.
Heat will always get the best of you,
And we argued we argued we argued.
When we were in the water,
You acted like my life saver.
I’m not much of a swimmer,
But you’re not much of a dreamer.

Tears in your eyes when we say goodbye.
Don’t think that I forget all the times that you cried.
Tried to stay away from your feminine side.
Scoff as you walk since you swallowed your pride.
You’re letting him get under your skin,
Oh I can feel it in your thighs when you tremble terrified.
But with eyes that blue, oh I’ll be touching you
Track Name: "Hey, do you wanna come over,"
Would I say I waste most of my time, feeling empty inside? Bring a light for this hollowed life. Putting aside most of my spine, for someone I don’t know, I think I’ve had enough of hope.

And if you, wouldn’t say…

Wouldn’t say that I was a big ray of sunshine, more of a black cloud, crude obnoxious and loud. So please won’t you just bury me? Oh in a pile of clothes, I swear it’s all that you know.

Wouldn’t say that I give up all of my time, feeling guilty for life, but I think I deserve to die. Wasting mine for the rest of the night, and I’m sorry I lied, but I don’t think that this is worth a try.

I’m just wasting your time…

Wouldn’t say I was a big ray of sunshine, more of a black cloud, crude, obnoxious, and loud. So please won’t you just bury me? Oh in a pile of clothes, I swear it’s all that you know.

2,3,4 who could show off our scars more?
5,6,7 who could show them, who would let them?
I wouldn’t let them, it was only for attention.
Track Name: You Have/You Are
You are the sad and low,
You are the accident prone,
You find yourself at home,
You find yourself alone.
And I know how it feels,
I know how you get.
When you step outdoors, you always feel upset.

“So who do you think you are?”
Well I’m not much of anyone.

And you have sunburnt lips,
A Starburst wrapper, stuck to your fingertips.
I tried to touch you, but it hurts when we kiss.
So we’ll pretend, let’s pretend it’s, we’ll pretend we’ll pretend it’s over.
