I knew I’d have a bad time shaking you.
On the form, I’m naming… who?
With the crack sound of my tooth
coming loose.

It was all so complicated,
I didn’t mean to say it out loud…
…anyway then, I think I should go
exaggerate it,
all my heart is breaking,
I can’t overstate it,
how should I be feeling? (so run the red out)
The ceiling (is all coming down),
and I feel I should care but I don’t
mean to (so run the red out)
be rude (it’s all coming down),
now I feel like I’m finally me.

I know, I could’ve said I was feeling low,
but I’m here just to hold your coat.
I’ve been thinking I could stay at home.

Could you let me know?
I could make some time if you wanted.
Couldn’t find the phone,
I guess I got that summer, you said

“I could be alright if you could re-write my life”,
and I said it won’t phase me, but I reckon I may’ve been wrong.

I should let this go.
I could be your water, instead I’ll put on my coat,
‘cause I could hear you stall in the way you said
“is it alright to feel like I do, at all?”
Got caught up in the skylight,
and the words just all came out wrong.

Let me get my head aligned,
let my life be worth your while,
bend my arm, I won’t be far at all.

All the good words have left my mouth,
I’m completely out of things to say about it now.

More and more, I’ll catalogue my doubts,
it’s the worst thing about me and it’s always around.

I made a bet that I’d forget my name
by the age of 28, I can barely stay awake.

‘cause more and more with every accolade,
I get carried away with being carried away.

I remember Halloween,
I hit my head on the edge of the sink.
Dialling out to an older me,
I miss my friends that I pretend I don’t need,
but I could have done with them this week.

On the table, my face went white and I fainted right at the wrong damn time.
I had an ECG, they checked how I breathe and said I should take my life more seriously.

I remember Halloween,
I hit my head on the edge of the sink.
Dialling out to an older me,
I miss my friends that I pretend I don’t need,
but dammit! I needed you this week.
