I've been waking up without a
memory of where I am

But your song still feels
like home
Voices like sparks
showering down on my skin
Making my blood clean
Thank you for your soul
For bringing me to life
with a single line

You make me keep hoping
the rain will come

"Life Vest"

I cannot feel
If I should use you as my life vest
Or let you gently float downstream

Tell everyone the same thing
"Tears calcify to heal the broken parts"
I'm full of bad bones
And you're all good

But sometimes I think
I'd rather break my own heart
Than stay intact just to keep alive


Your scent's still hanging on my skin
Call me "darling"
Call me "darling" again

You won't surface unless your
poison is matched
Yet I'm still rushing to you

Oh, pretty boy
Sometimes I worry
Because only you can hear me
when I whisper
And pretty boy
I think sometimes you worry
Because you want to wake up
next to me

Xanax dreams
And vanilla incense
No "we"
No "us"
Nothing is ours
Nothing ever will be ours

You can visit Europe
"You can even visit more than once"
But you can't live there
and Language Barriers
and Currency Exchange

You'll just dangle a one-way ticket
in front of my lips
And snatch it away when I bite

This well-traveled heart can only stretch so far
So don't call me "darling"
Don't call me "darling" again
