about

First song written in 2018. Your classic boy-meets-girl-has-already-met-boy story.

Writing this one was a rollercoaster. Dug up an old song, liked parts of it, found an instrumentation I liked, started to hate the lyrics, wrote a new song to that new instrumentation which ended up being this. I hope you like it.

lyrics

I still have glitter on my jacket
And my shirt smells like perfume
We really made a night of it
And pushed the morning back til noon
A business trip four times a year
Another Valentine’s in June
You told me he’s a man to fear
But I’m done howlin’ at the moon

Tired of secret texts at one AM
After putting him to sleep
Tired of hearing you break down
And telling me your his to keep
Tired of parking on darkened streets
In some god forsaken town
Tired of sweating through my sheets
With dreams of your lips kissing him

You’ve given me your secrets
And you’ve given me your word
But hearing you make promises
Is bordering on the absurd
Cause every night you break it off
With me, you break his heart
Lying through your teeth is easy
When your smile’s a work of art

Tired of secret texts at one AM
After putting him to sleep
Tired of hearing you break down
And telling me your his to keep
Tired of parking on darkened streets
In some god forsaken town
Tired of sweating through my sheets
With dreams of your lips kissing him

You call yourself a victim
And I’m not sure who to blame
All I get are bits and pieces
Soaked in alcohol and shame
Cause for every tear you shed
We pop a bottle of champagne
And the fog around my head
Puts off my doubts for one more day

But when you leave I feel a chill
Move through my chest and start to build
Until my teeth begin to grind
Cause I can’t you off my mind
A shower’s never hot enough
To burn your touch off of my skin
Ah, It’s not you I’m thinking of
It’s your lips pressing against him

Tired of secret texts at one AM
After putting him to sleep
Tired of hearing you break down
And telling me your his to keep
Tired of parking on darkened streets
In some god forsaken town
Tired of sweating through my sheets
With dreams of your lips kissing him
