i’ve got miles of regrets and confusing friends but perhaps it’s just my stupid head in the end thinking should i wait here or make my way home you said go making up problems that don’t exist why do i let myself dream like this we’re floating away, my body’s in space we are going home Missing pieces of my skull I’ll sew on patches of my own soul There’s nothing you or I can do so let the stars fall Cause from up here the sky’s my thoughts and we’re all so small Meteor shower, Quick take cover But the hues in our hair compliment one another I’d sell my own bones for sapphire stones Cause blue’s your favourite colour My heart and the earth share the same rule It starts with Love and it ends with U But don’t go outside, it’s dangerous tonight Without me right here by your side Take it slow, you’ll know which way to go Sew up your skull take your time and we’ll be just fine
2.
Don't fall down tonight, you're alive and so am I Hold on we might hotwire this old car and drive Sticks and stones they say but we dont have bones inside our brains if bones are the walls between you and I then I feel pretty tempted to beat myself with sticks and stones anyway I got a ray gun in my bag a treasure map under my hat And i'll never miss a headshot or a dotted line I've spent way too much time thinkin about dreamin about life to miss the point, which is just listen cause I've listened for mine

we're alive 03:20
Everyone and everything around me's always changing everyone except me I'm stayin the same as if i was nothing I dont sing my songs I bleed them, I don't write unless I mean them Without cold the snow's just rain, without my voice it's all the same It's ok we're just scared I don't really need to sleep much longer but the longer I sleep, the slower my heart beats There's fire on my floor telling me to sleep some more Cry a little louder if you know what this means It's ok we're just scared It's ok I forgot about the note I left on my back door But it's alright, I'll stay here inside with my friends who aren't here anymore Actually you know what, The way things are isn't good enough We're alive and we're here Listen please cause we're scared We're alive and we're here We will scream til you hear

I'm awake again at 3am My head's so tired but I dont care, no I dont Outside the sky looks like it's burning down but I won't fear, no I won't Falling down like angels fighting Stars and lightening hold me tightly Hold me tightly Close your blinds tonight They'll soften and disperse the light and If you're lucky a car might drive by And the headlights fill your ceiling with shooting stars Works of art Waiting for your arms to part And welcome in my beating heart Badum, badum, badum, badum Falling down like angels fighting Stars and lightening hold me tightly Hold me tightly

untitled v.2 03:26
I know my hands aren't warm enough to hold your cold cold heart And i know my bones aren't strong enough to keep me from falling apart Did you know sometimes I dig into the carpet with my feet and did you know that every night I play your favourite songs on repeat It helps me sleep Because my hair is growing backwards and my knees are bending inwards and monsters in the closet won't stop giving me the shivers Even though it's probably just in my mind

banana bread 04:49
you’re falling further down but i’ve got you by a thread i wrap the chord around my arms until my hands start to turn red but it’s not enough, it won’t be enough to save you she’s so in love with all the things i hate most about myself i’m so in love with all the sounds she makes when she smiles and well it’s a little tough, to put acorn shells on ice sheets without breaking through, and flooding the whole town i hope you’re alright i didn’t wanna wake up last night cause i quite liked the dream i had of holding your hand it’s funny how slowly time goes when my thoughts have been racing all this time it’s alright to feel a little bit of darkness now and then i know i’ve said it once but i still tell myself again and again you’ll never be enough, but what is enough, you’re selfless isn’t that enough banana bread before i go to bed will put the bees to sleep otherwise they’d buzz and sting my lungs all night inside of me just wait a little while, u don’t cry too much u know that when u smile, the sun shines more gently

devil town 02:59
Verse: Am, Em, F, C, G, F#, F, Fm Chorus: Am, F, C, G Life's alright in devil town They're right, no one's gonna catch us now Dad has bought a new car now We're fine, no one's gonna catch us now You said something dumb again She's mad, at least that's what they say Mum and daddy aren't in love That's fine, I'll settle for two birthdays Devil town is colder in the summertime I'll lose my mind at least another thousand times Hold my hand tight, we'll make it another night I still get a little scared of something new But i feel a little safer when I'm with you Falling doesn't feel so bad when I know you've fallen this way too We're all dead in devil town That's fine, cause nothing's gonna scare us now We're all in our dressing gowns, mine's white and stripy yours is green and brown I forgot my name again I think that's something worth remembering Spiders in your favourite shoes Just leave them be cause they're more scared of you Devil town is colder in the summertime I'll lose my mind at least another thousand times Hold my hand tight, we'll make it another night I still get a little scared of something new But i feel a little safer when I'm with you Falling doesn't feel so bad when I know you've fallen this way too
