They were right I didn’t care so much about being free And I might Have run into darkness once again I’ll start a fight I don’t want to see anyone tonight I just want to hear you say Yes or nay Every time my phone goes off I take a walk down gut churn lane Should I hit send or feign a cough Will I ever have to walk with a cane Help me doubt my strengths How come all the other girls seem vain Tell me is it strange Please say that you need me Scarcity never fails to drive insane If we’re talking strategy More like a cold hard love trap me potion please have Mercy on me I’m weak I’m lost you’re sweet I’m yours Ain’t no going back She was cool But was she high school pool party cool? Did he fret or tell you off Can you make your mind on your own ‘Cause I’ve been told it’s bad enough That you kicked the garage door open and Kissed me How dare you pretend That I’d never go and cause trouble (bite me) Very strange to say we’ll never be friends Scarcity never fails to drive insane If we’re talking strategy More like a cold hard love trap me potion please go Easy on me I’m weak I’m lost you’re sweet I’m yours Ain’t no going back She was cool But was she high school pool party cool? If you wanna lose your lover Just say that you love her Way to spoil your fortunate mistake To hell with the blame Chances are we’ll never be together No need to refrain I’ll be obsessing for a week At least you’re not ruining my summer

I’m at a loss for words and I feel a fool I got nothing to say like I thought I would The time’s right to get dumb and lighten up the mood, come get a taste You say you wanna dance my hand will Gladly find its way around your waist What a waste of time All our conversations those that made me drool The thwarted expectations and the broken rules Valuable miscalculations, all so typical Long was the chase Everything that’s served us right Do we bury it down or do we cherish the blame? Don’t let it deflate! It’s unlike me to jump the gun now cut to the chase Hold me tight until your name rolls off my tongue I’d rather be the sad one if you’re bored, no longer fazed by The former me who tried to change the one he loved Looking back you see the wake it seems a miracle By putting two and two on paper we are bound two rue this One is on a mission, the other cynical, it’s all it takes Unresolved infatuation once alleviated what comes of our parade Catch the train or hike! After all the jokes and memories If remains some trust, autonomy Take nothing for granted

Blindfolded 03:05
Another day with his eyes closed One more step much closer to the dive She’s not quite as tame as she seems to be A fortnight now since she first called and yet he’s weak enough to lose the fight she’ll get what she wants, just a matter of time Only he knows she’s trouble He’s seen her glide a thousand miles Over commitments manifold Inside and out of his numbed out mind it’s all Broken phials and sleight of style she spins the cards he knows he’s lost the hand Ooh Silent threats and gradual revelations The trap clamped down then all will went missing He knew the mistakes all along The oh so enticing stories her eyes told His heart had heard it many times before And his excuses seemed feeble As if he’d bought a thousand lies There’s no denying the water’s cold Around and about all the scattered pieces of Broken phials and sleight of style she deals the cards he knows he’s lost the hand Ooh Silent threats and gradual revelations The trap clamped down then all will went missing Ask yourself twice if you’re craving the blindfold The taste is sweet and riches seem untold Her eyes are bright Your throat will feel tight Ask yourself twice if you’re wearing the blindfold The taste is sweet but the truth will soon unfold Be wary, you could lose your mind

Summer is a lie, unless you wanna try To believe with me let's fly away Where snowmen aren't made out of sand I'll show you the way A real Christmas, a proper Christmas Sparks shivers and awe and you'll say Come closer darling, snap into the dream 'cause Summer is a lie that anyone can afford They went for a sleigh ride on the beach Where snowmen are made out of sand For years he had known You have it in you, a shine of your own Who else but the jeweller lives happily For the night is dark and only he holds the light Summer is a lie and the songs they play Don't match the weather, when did the spirit die? Who gives baby? Let's fly away hold my hand I'll show you the way We don't need Christmas, let it be treacherous His heart was open and no love had leaked So she stepped right inside and screamed Summer is a lie Made blind by the light, knocked out upon sight Summer is a lie Jaded by the stream, frightened in his dreams Shattered in a golden and green Summer of all lies I don't want your gift, you are but a wimp He picked up a cup and had a merry little summer He had a merry little summer What a nice summer He had a merry little summer Summer is a lie

Enlighten me help me see Master astronomy and chemistry There are things I couldn’t fathom What’s the duration of a thought for my day’s gone by As ants were biting at my feet My mind was dwelling on your eyes all along I’ve seen an avalanche where the ocean normally lies And when the skies turned black I got a front row seat I thought I’d given love one chance too many But now here we are Another line in the book I’m keen on learning Are you keen on teaching me Tonight there will be satellites Colliding on your doorstep and if you’d like to see them northern lights glowing on your ceiling all you need to do is hold my hand I’m keen on learning What’s the story like? They say I never shut up But what do they know? It goes to show that your lips have found a secret Some sort of magic trick with no wand and you pulled the heist As swift as an arrow claiming a king’s defeat I could be speaking in tongues You seem to understand the silence between my shouts Before I ask you twice to acknowledge the feat Make sure the way is clear straight to the upper tier I hope your spelling is sound What’s your favorite four-letter word?
