Better 01:12
you could not stick around i was looking for a better reason not to call you back
Problem 02:34
i’ll walk you home you say you’re tired of talking to people you don’t know feet on the concrete we’re weighing on i want to live here a couple of years the city my grandpa lived in you all got a problem and are alright nothing to worry about in the morning time i feel for you and what it cost a storm with a fury a natural loss
Meg 02:31
meg always finds the right words to say understanding where you’ve been is just the easiest way you say you feel alone again that’s about to change in a hide me way look in the door under the stairs i did it before you knew you could care i knew you could tell i knew it o there’s a fork in my throat i saw it between your big toe and me under the sheets under speak because i know you feel a certain way but ill pass it along anyway
Try Hard 03:06
drive your car around the block and tell me lies how can you assume the worst all the time i never was a friend to him and there’s no reason i am that way leave you in the dark sometimes i am unclear today take enough to make it home in streetlight you could not call your dad back then forgot his name again i never did try hard forgot about the time i lost your address tired of dreaming of the brightest light i’d ever saw never returned your fathers call talk about your day and plans you made burn out and fade away i could not understand all that you said
In My Head 01:29
i haven’t ever had to fit two people in my head you know i’m gone for good you told me he’s just not for you if that’s true you know i think you’re onto something good you know i’m gone for good on the gulf in that screened in room i told you the truth that i was packing my shit up for you was coming home to you it just wasn’t right for you
Favorite 01:41
could not stop for her back then i was not thrown off when you opened up too much too soon moved to a new neighborhood we went for walks to cope with it a favorite memory on the day you left i went to the state fair with my girl then kissed her later, took my mind off you were leaving for a good reason
Note 01:01
you crawled to your window i couldn’t break your fall i’m not that close to you my throat burns, but only sometimes and other times it’s cold like the winter coat i left you a note but you choke
Can't Wait 03:01
you don’t have the time to love me like you want to what i am to you just doesn’t feel that in tune but i am 100% made up from things that don’t make sense i’m somewhere new staring at the ceiling feeling my hands reacting from the feelings when you’re close you’re not that far away when you’re close wondering where did my years go now i got friends i don’t know listening to shows i don’t like spending time alone at a lunch spot with you in my own mind i just can’t wait until you’re mine you have been running around in my mind
Pretend 02:33
pictured you there then could not win yourself over say i will be a friend if you want look at your eyes like i’m lacking a punchline pretend to be what i never will
Friend 02:21
you’re not asleep like you used to be all the time i couldn’t care more than i did you had decided to be someone you never thought you would to be away, you were like a friend of mine and i understood why over years we did not talk too much i could not bring myself to see the dark you felt around you and why would i when all we can do is make it along alright, it’s nice you’re a friend of mine and i understand why
Left Out 03:03
i saw you last night cannot rewind your life i want to know how you’re coming out i feel left out i want to know how you’re coming out alright i’ll call you more now forget where you have been i want to know how you’re coming out i feel left out i want to know how you’re coming out alright i want to know how i feel let down i want to know how you’re coming out alright
