Lyrics

Chapter 7: Your Song

Was it for the game? Was it for the story? Did you need to be loved cuz  your mama never gave you enough? Was it for the fuck? Was it to feed your ego? Did it feel so good to have control with me in your at your palm and her at your door? Aint nothing you can do to make your wrongs alright. Aint no Springsteen or Ryan Adams tune gonna justify all the hurt you love to feel and all the hurt you love to cause, but I’m alright now and you have no light now just the sound of my voice and the haunt of your song. Did she also say she loved you? Did she also apologize? Did she comfort you and confide while you fed her the same shit with a side of gaslight? Was it all just a project? Was I an object to feed your fire? I guess the bottle just wasn’t enough. You needed a drug, but you just cheated yourself. Aint no Springsteen or Ryan Adams tune gonna justify all the hurt you love to feel and all the hurt you love to cause, but I’m alright now and you have no light now just the sound of my voice and the haunt of your song.

Chapter 6: Nowhere Now

You said, “come home,” when I had left. Well baby it’s been some time since I’ve known what a home meant. But I came back for you. Didn’t I come back for you? So where are you now? Don’t you know I crossed the river to see the city lights from your side? Don’t you know I fought the storms brewing in our seas and in my mind? But didn’t I find my way back? Didn’t I find my way back to you? oh baby I came back for you but where are you now? Where are you now? You weigh heavy on my belly, heavy when I lay, empty in this space. It’s so empty in this place where you’re supposed to be. You’re supposed to be with me but where are you now? Where are you now? Nowhere to be found? You’re nowhere now.

Chapter 5: How Many Times

How many times did I wait for you? How many times did I make up an excuse? How many times can I hear that you’re sorry? How long until your words lose their worth? I’m saying your name more than thinking of my own. I’m forgiving every time you couldn’t be bothered to pick up the phone. I’m sick of saying it’s all good, this can’t be cured with a kiss. Where is all you promised? How many lines does it take to learn act? How many fines must I pay until I flat? How many times can you say that you love me? Can you tell me, how long til your words lose their worth? I’m saying your name more than thinking of my own. I’m forgiving every time you couldn’t be bothered to pick up the phone. I’m sick of saying it’s all good, this can’t be cured with a kiss. Where is all you promised? Your words are empty air. your only noise I’m all out of cares. It’s always on the tip of your tongue. I just hear sounds. It’s not enough. I’m saying your name more than thinking of my own. I’m forgiving every time you couldn’t be bothered to pick up the phone. I’m sick of saying it’s all good, this can’t be cured with a kiss. Where is all you promised?

Chapter 4: California

Think about me more than you should. I think about you all the time, more than I thought I could. Speak to me, even if you have nothing to say. I have no words. I got nothing on my tongue but your name. I miss you like the summer sun on a winter day. I need you like California is thirsty for rains. I want you like all lost things search for a home. So tell me you’ll take me and I’ll never let you go. You can write a hundred letters full of words I’ll understand but it honestly don’t matter. It don’t mean a fucking thing if I can’t hold your hand. I miss you like the summer sun on a winter day. I need you like California is thirsty for rains. I want you like all lost things search for a home. So tell me you’ll take me and I’ll never let you go. But don’t let me love you it you don’t want me to.

Chapter 3: Here

I know you had girl before you said. She was your love but you say you want to love again. I want to stand with you and you only. but I am afraid you’re gonna leave me lonely. She’s in your head and she’s in your bed while I’m lying beneath you. She’s on your arm and you’re a ticking clock, you say you’re waiting for something true. Well I’m right here and she’s nowhere and I’m right in front of you. My hands are open wide and she’s not in sight but I’m right here with you. Didn’t you say I was everything? Everything that you want? I can play your guitar and sing all your favorite songs. you like that I go a lot of tattoos and I like that you make art. I want to be your muse, but can you make room for me in your little heart? Well I’m right here and she’s nowhere and I’m right in front of you. My hands are open wide and she’s not in sight but I’m right here with you. She’s in your head and she’s in your bed and I am a fool, but I’ll be right here with you.

Chapter 2: I Only Wanted

I only wanted someone to have, someone to hold to if I should fall down. I only wanted someone to smile for, someone to search for out in the crowd. Want me. Haunt me. In through my bones. I only wanted the fear of a love a couldn’t lose. I only wanted someone to laugh with, someone to caress my tired heart. I only wanted someone to catch, someone to miss when we are apart. Want me. Haunt me. In through my bones. I only wanted the fear of a love a couldn’t lose. Want me. Haunt me ‘til after you’re gone. I only wanted love that lasts past the dawn.

Chapter 1: Slipping

Hold my tired head in your weathered hands. Hold me tight and I just might melt like sand. I am slipping through. I am slipping into you. Swallow my breath in a million whiskey kisses. I’ve got a head full of poetry, but you’ve got me speechless. I am slipping through. I am slipping into you. I’m losing my mind. I’m loosening my grip. I’m fading out and fading in. I’m slipping in.
