Intro 02:14
Lifeslonging 03:44
I have fallen so deep and I have felt so far from love She was my strength so I let her go The things that she wanted weren't the things that I needed Decided to have strength on my own I've never felt so sure I've never felt so I've never felt so lost and felt so safe at the same time
Every girl that I've ever thought of wedding has been wedded down this year I'm thankful every day that I don't have to regret it like everyone I know Every ear that I've ever tried to sing to closes off when you don't make it dance But the few I've found who listen stick around slightly longer, before they want to move Saying "make me move" You look like you've been broken for a thousand years - maybe better we pack it in They say that you can't stay friends with the ones you've loved
Stir Crazy 04:09
She's left no light on for me I never knew, I never knew I'll live with this rock in my shoe It's always there - a reminder How you burned your bridges so thorough My burden, my chain My shadow in my veins It's always the same Hidden in her bedroom, in a drawer Is a ticket for a plane Like trying to run from the sting of a wasp It's always there - her downfall It follows Her burden, her chain Her shadow in her veins It's always the same
Decathect 03:35
Keeping underground, I've been learning from the foxes On a new set of reflexes I'll rely Gone from being served my organs on your wedding present china To spilling out my guts onto the stage You'll never see me lay down I'm starting to enjoy I'm starting to enjoy the feeling of swimming in the water filling up my room I've poisoned this foundation I've built it up on angles I've made this house of cards to fall I've laid our beds down on gravel and on branches You'll feel them in your sleep as they grow under you You'll never see me lay down
To Another 04:36
Don’t be foolish, you should run from ghosts I’m just taking advantage of you Gaining yet another home to haunt for a while, before moving on To another girl To another world Martyr and father bought a sign Of the Corinthian’s definition of love Hung it on an empty wall in a dark room In the back of the house Now, like a residue, wanting remains Someone will replace but not fill the shape Like lighting first fire beneath still-burning hills, what’s not to trust? When has a heart steered wrong?
Leaving a trail of the ones who meant something for a little while Feeling nothing is still feeling something But none of them have ever seen my house in the daylight And I have got a history of being the one who got away Let's go back to your apartment and I'll stay the night But don't be disappointed when I go I see where you get your good looks, so I'll go there next You can count on that It's a strange love I seek It's the devil in me And I'll find it At least I'm being honest Let's go back to your apartment and I'll stay the night But don't be disappointed when I go
An eagle eye with a shattered mind The mountain man with a rifle in hand An injury, an apology A bandage, an exit, a sigh Dragged her in the woods in the middle of the state He said "that red dress sticks out like a sore thumb" She knew exactly who he was On the highway, the concrete sings Asphalt's silent, hot metal rings A halted race by a cattle gate On the porch of a stranger hit the floor Tandem shots from a farmboy and from a cop Rails of birch rise like wisps of smoke Burnt cabins on the side of the highway
Outtro 04:41
Don't worry I won't be getting comfortable here When I become disposable for you It won't be my mind made
