with deep gratitude to cat, aki, sophie, sam, tess, natalie and of course, simone

for clara


i want the real thing
where I can hold your eyes and kill the fantasy
but you're broken like me
and we still gotta live after the happy ending

reaching through the vacuum of the criss-cross starlit sky

well you know what i need
to feel the ground settled beneath my feet
but it's alright
we can keep our eyes focused on the bleak and the bright

i'm still not sure what will ease your doubts
but i wouldn't hate it if we worked things out
i'm not an easy friend but you can't wear me down

i wish you were here
watching the water get higher year after year
but you can never say yes
without convincing yourself that you don't deserve it

i miss california and how it made me feel
finally letting myself believe that maybe this time it's real

dreaming of a future with fences down
and a few girlfriends playing house
chickens and children running around
looking after each other
building better together

well you know where i'll be
you can find me at the bottom of everything
but it's alright
i don't need to know the next time you'll get me high

don't know where i'll sleep when we're drowned in the waves
but i wouldn't hate it if you screamed my name
i'm not an easy friend but i can keep you up late

well you know what i mean
when i say i want you at the center of everything
but it's alright
i don't need to be alone with you every night

i've spent most of my life in a duet
but i wouldn't hate it if she shared the bed
i'm not an easy friend but we could make a good set

it's not an easy one but you're still my best friend
i'm not an easy one
