about

I haven't felt this good about a song I've written in a while. That might be because it's a little on the self-indulgent side -- heavy metaphor, fingerpicked, desperate. But I like really it, so indulge me. I hope you like it too.

lyrics

Nothing seems to matter
Anymore
Your key still turns but it doesn’t
Unlock the same door
We went from thick as thieves
To on thin ice
But that’s that’s what you end up with
When you steal you pay the price

So our luck’s run out
And our skill is lacking
And my words are loud
And your voice is cracking
Our more colorful days
Drain the color from your face
And this always happens
When there’s nothing left to take

I drilled into your chest
And stole your heart
And you snuck down my throat
And took the breath from my lungs
And after that a simple break in
Isn’t hard
A couple months of good rapport
Then you just walk in the front door

But our luck’s run out
And our skill is lacking
And my words are loud
And your voice is cracking
Our more colorful days
Drain the color from your face
And this always happens
When there’s nothing left to take

You started occupying
All my time
And oh so smooth I didn’t notice
And when I did I didn’t mind
I took all of the strength
That I could find
And when you finally realized
There was none of it to hide

Now our luck’s run out
And our skill is lacking
And my words are loud
And your voice is cracking
Our more colorful days
Drain the color from your face
And this always happens
When there’s nothing left to take

Nate Paladino California

I write and sing sad songs that sometimes sound happy. Mostly about love and toxic masculinity.
