Track Name: I Might Die From This
If you ever knew
I think it'd fall apart
You can't have me
Cos' I am not a man
-
You hold it high
You're not so great to me
When you talk to me
I can hardly breathe
-
You think you know the words that are floating around
So my heart can never be heard, no
I don't even think if I was living out loud
You would have noticed my whole world die
I can't breathe with you
I might talk to you
I come back to you
I don't want to
-
It's all written in a diary
Everything you can't say to me
It's not even from living alone
You're always getting my fucking phone
-
Oh, I might die from this
Oh, I might die from this
Oh, I might die from this
Oh, I might die from this
Oh, I might die from this
Oh, I might die from this
Oh, I might die from this
Oh, I might die from this
Track Name: I Think Of You
I think of you
I get blue
The words keep running through my head
Is it so bad
It makes you mad
I wish I was what you dream of
-
Sometimes I think about it so hard I cannot breathe
Sometimes I get so sad I almost tell you everything
-
When I'm nearby
I'm not surprised
I know I'm here but not with you
And it's so sad
The things I have for you
I just get colder and you can't help
-
Sometimes I think about it so hard I cannot breathe
Sometimes I get so sad I almost tell you everything
Track Name: Thunder and Lightning
I can feel the downpour in the bottoms of my shoes
The rain is coming down, getting wet is all we got to lose
I can walk you home now, or you can sit under my porch
We'll never have to talk about what all of this is for
I can call your parents on my telephone
I'll have to speak loudly so they don't know we're alone
We can stay indoors, take the keys away
I can be alone tonight but it'd be better if you stay
I can't take you home tonight
-
I had that rainy day feeling that just makes you want to sink
All my friends are getting better while my heads still in the sink
You'll just hold my hand now and we'll sit next to the fire
I don't know if it's real but you don't seem like a liar
I can call your parents on my telephone
I'll have to speak loudly so they don't know we're alone
We can stay indoors, take the keys away
I can be alone tonight but it'd be better if you stay
I can't take you home tonight
Don't go swimming in the rain
There's thunder and lightning outside today
Don't go home alone today
There's thunder and lightning where you stay
-
I may be sick but I don't drink like your dad
I'm not going to hit you just because I'm sad
Nothing here's familiar, it's all just in your head
Don't go walking back now just because of what he said
I'll hang around so you won't have to be alone
I won't let any lightning bruise a single bone
And if I see him making noise I will not tell
We'll wait 'till no ones looking and we'll send him back to hell
And I won't leave you alone today
And I can't take you home today
And I can't take you home today
Track Name: Will You Take Me, Please?
I see another day full of things I just won't say
I guess they come out anyway
So here's my house for you, I built it so I can fit in too
But I don't have to be inside
-
Is this a place you'd like to be
If I mow the lawn and plant a tree
I'll make it special, for you and me
But you say no
Maybe I can another day
And you ask me
If I've got a ride home, and I say no
Will you take me, please
-
Can we just walk today, I won't even try to hold your hand
I think you here is just enough
At the end of the day, when I pretend there's nothing to say
Will you ask me if I'm okay
-
Is this a place you'd like to be
If I mow the lawn and plant a tree
I'll make it special, for you and me
But you say no
Maybe I can another day
And you ask me
If I've got a ride home, and I say no
But you say no
Maybe I can another day
And you ask me
If I've got a ride home, and I say no
Can you take me
Track Name: Go Away
There it goes, I watch it move
And words I couldn't say
I was upset, now I'm okay
I hardly feel anyway
I want to go, but you still call
And everything comes back
I visit you, to see your house
How did you get away?
I see your face go away
And I breathe your air all day
But you go, you go anyway
-
And he took another friend
She couldn't go another way
And he says look to me
You'll see her in a better place
I see your face go away
And I breathe your air all day
But you go, you go anyway
