For every rose there is a thorn that I adore.
Down to the core I'm rotting heavy, my soul is scorched.
Up and down unexpectedly.
Do you even give a shit bout what it meant to me?
For a dollar, catch some kisses and an otter pop.
Dusting wishes that I ought to drop.
For real.
I'm still feeling concealed in the unreal.
When the music stops, I'll be gone still.
Feel it building in my veins, it runs through me.
I find it harder to restrain this energy.
I find it harder to maintain my strategy.
I find it harder to dream so vividly.
Gravity will have it it's way with me.
I'm nearly at the bottom, so quickly.
If driving down the coast could cure me,
I would've never left my city. I'm burning.
Now I'm here and all up in my head.
Like would I rather really be with you instead?
Places. I'm going places.
But when I look around, unfamiliar faces.

But that's me, that's me.
I've been away for so long.
I find it harder every day to stay strong.

But that's me, that's me.
Five more letters.
Help me stay asleep until I'm feeling better.

The more I ask, the more it lasts.
The answers leave me.
Do you believe in me?
Always so damn far.
Getting angry at these feelings is repertoire.
Maybe. Just maybe...
I should stop for a moment cause lately.
The days go by, so hazy.
They paint you next to somebody, but it ain't me.
