lyrics

I used to be so bored, pretentious, tied to whims, lost to a few
and now I can't sit still
Slipping out this tired room where I found love in every moon
that shone on the window sill
But it[1] comes and goes in seasons, faces, cities[2], spaces, and even years
and odd facades and worn out thrills

But I've been feeling low
and you've been getting high
and making love to pillows in the night [3]
I'm emptied out inside
You're dressed in pretty lights
and burning out much quicker than I'd like

I used to give a shit about the way you moved from room to room
on nothing but your shortest breath
Sleeping on a hardwood floor[4], I guess I'd hoped you'd give me more
but all this feels so beat to death
Stepping barefoot on the carpet[5], my biggest dream, that special thing
you get to do here everyday again

You're walking through the walls so casually
I need to change the locks this time

But I've been feeling low
and you've been getting high
and making love to pillows in the night
I'm emptied out inside
you're dressed in pretty lights
and burning out much quicker than I'd like

I've been feeling low
You've been getting high
and making love to pillows in the night
I'm emptied out inside
You're dressed in pretty lights
and burning out much quicker than I'd like

1- depression

3- sexual repression
4- Nashville, Tn 2015
5- walking on eggshells
