Track Name: meteor shower
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
Track Name: everything is temporary (sticks and stones)
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
Track Name: we're alive
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
Track Name: hazel
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
Track Name: untitled v.2
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
Track Name: banana bread
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
Track Name: devil town
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
