Tired 03:02
you need to feel the wind on your lips and i can't breathe in this town between oceans you demand explanations for every affection and run at the first sign of kindness biting my tongue so it won’t burn i need a life that isn't built to hurt you can't sleep in this bed between bodies i just want someone who wants nothing from me someone who knows me and doesn't want to leave and i want to talk all day and you just dissociate i'm tired of sleeping alone tired of you being cold tired of living our whole lives through a phone i never see you anymore tired of waiting at home tired of being a hole tired of living my whole life being stoned i never feel anything anymore but you say it's all too much and i've got a sister's touch that we mean different things when we say love i'm tired of sleeping alone tired of you being cold tired of living our whole lives through a phone i never see you anymore tired of waiting at home tired of being a hole tired of living my whole life being stoned i don't feel anything anymore i don't feel anything anymore

God Knows 03:26
woke up wanting to die again getting high again just to float through the day i'm home again crashing in this town again where i can ignore my friends and you can't dictate how i take my space another night of wires getting worn sending paragraphs of text back and forth i'm always looking for an exit before we begin baby i can't be your soft landing woke up in the bath again freezing and sinking again swearing this time will be the last so i'm eating again practicing dbt again staring down the sun again and trying to steal some kind of a future back another night drinking through the cold your last words echoing through my skull i'm worried i'll never feel at home in my skin baby i can't be your soft landing i'm always looking for an exit before we begin baby i can't be your soft landing another night plugged into my machines listening to blonde on repeat tell me we're ok tell me i'm ok i'm ok tell me that nothing worth saving ever stays broken anyway i'm not a future you can put your faith in baby i can't be your soft landing i'm always looking for an exit before we begin baby i can't be your soft landing

Until Then 02:40
dead flowers on the dashboard passing favorite songs back and forth burning down the decade that got me here i'm already living longer than i ever thought i could so i'll try to do some good and make meaning that might matter but until then you could stay with me until then would you stay with me? we cut shapes in the sky to make sense of our lives would you still love me if i fixed my body drowning in sad songs come up for air with the sun make peace with who i've become and maybe figure out how to be happy but until then you could stay with me until then would you stay with me? until then you could stay with me until then would you stay with me? i'll settle in and learn to love the cold and get better at being alone until then you could stay with me until then would you stay with me? the faint familiar trace of your touch i need something new in my blood until then you could stay with me until then would you stay with me? until then you could stay with me until then would you stay with me? until then would you stay with me?

Wildflowers 03:18
just a fictional object of role-model dreams hiding my eyes from that self-made marquee always caught in the spin of my own inertia i am fully aware of each of my flaws i'll put my back in to it learn to love the burden have only good days from now on but please don't ask me to save you i can barely keep up with myself if you give me your crown i'll only let you down so trust me kid, it's just as well I’m just glad to see you on your way you've been staging an exit since before we met running from the weather every chance you'd get i can't blame you for not sticking around you're the only good thing to ever come from this town you taught me to believe in endings and only good news from now on but making plans makes me anxious the dread of someone else relying on me so i've filled up my blood with that reckless self love under a steady rain with nowhere to be I’m just glad to see you on your way connected computers, eyes on the future, you were my friend saying we'll be close when we're old and each time before you go made me promise i won't die before we talk again so let the weeds grow baby until the wildflowers are ten-feet tall i'm glad you're finally free but it's hard to leave when you were never really here at all I’m just glad I got to see you on your way I’m just glad to see you on your way
