Cheap Roses 02:13
I'm overwhelmed, I'm overworked I'm over tired, I'm over it I'm under siege, my brittle knees My broken back, my shoulders to the wind Can't you see that I'm not whole This place was never my home Places hold people These people are why I've gotta leave The place most familiar to me Maybe I'll head out west where the air is clean And the roses they are cheap I'll be well rested, be well fed Be well dressed, find my wellbeing Can't you see that I'm not clean The pollution's killing me yeah Places hold people These people are why I've gotta flee The place most familiar to me

You could do better, you are my better half And you've got more to say And I am certain of that Cause I still taste the blood From all the months I bit my tongue Why do you sweep me under the rug Like I'm a stain you're embarrassed of You are my best one, you're my best friend And I would hate to see this end Before it even starts Did you think about my heart Did you think about my heart I could be reckless, I could jump the gun Or I could jump the border and forget everyone You are my best one, you're my best friend And I would hate to see this end Before it even starts Did you think about my heart Did you think about my heart Did you think about my heart What are we gonna do About this elephant in the room Do we send him back to the zoo I would fight him for you Cause you are my best one, you're my best friend And I would hate to see this end Before it even starts Did you think about my heart Did you think about my heart What about my heart

Coffee 03:49
I can't drink coffee anymore Because it tastes like your mouth In the morning on the couch Before it all went south There was no turbulence to indicate That this plane was going down Got a one way ticket baby Gotta show you this is worth fighting for to me You can think I am crazy You don't get to give it up that easy I've got problems baby You don't gotta solve 'em maybe I asked you for too much and Maybe you didn't ask enough of me I am stronger than you think There were no sirens to warn us This place was burning down and I Got a one way ticket baby Gotta show you this is worth fighting for to me You can think I am crazy You don't get to give it up that easy My love grew stronger than ginger Yours grew slower than molasses It was sweet, bittersweet Why'd you go sugar free Cut me out, too much of a good thing Got a one way ticket baby Gotta show you this is worth fighting for to me You can think I am crazy You don't get to give me up that easy Got a one way ticket baby Gotta show you this is worth fighting for to me You don't get to give me up that easy You can think I am crazy

Leaves 04:47
This spring was the coldest Massachusetts has seen in some time I didn't feel the warmth until I Looked in your eyes, I die a little every time The leaves are taking longer than They're supposed to to change colors this year It's probably cause they know That once they fall, you'll be gone my dear And I'll still be here I wish it was April And the trees had new leaves But it's October and you're leaving me It is October and you're leaving me You got yourself a haircut now You look just like the day that I first met ya It's funny how the things that grow Can be cut down just to grow back again You make my hair stand on end I'm still glad you're my friend I wish it was April And the trees had new leaves But it's October and you're leaving me It is October and you're leaving me I wonder how the winter will be When the trees lose their leaves Maybe you will call me yeah Don't you wish it was April And that you had picked me But it's December and you're so lonely It is December and you have lost me

Fever Dream 04:22
My skin burns, my heart yearns I've earned more than they Feel that I deserve I grew weak, I can't sleep The terrors of the night They're haunting me, haunting me Fever dream, you are to me A nightmare to the sickly I'll sweat you out of me Broken with the fever you will be My tongue's tied, my brain's fried I surely wouldn't mind someone Holding me tonight Goodnight, sleep tight It'll all be better in the morning light Fever dream, you are to me A nightmare to the sickly I'll sweat you out of me Broken with the fever you will be When I was younger, I was smaller I felt taller, I was bolder now The boulder in my chest is getting heavy I can't breathe Fever dream, you are to me A nightmare to the sickly I'll sweat you out of me Broken with the fever you will be

I'm stuck in limbo I'm not flexible enough to get by I lost my mind and my money In a city that's so nice The city lights, they shine so bright Where is my ending of happiness This brick road's only yellow Cause it's covered in piss And caution lines Even in the warmth, I am shivering cold And I am growing old in a city I felt young in I outgrew my skin Happiness is fleeting I'm a series of the right place at the wrong time And I try to be sweet like candy But I'm bitter like the lemons life's thrown at me Oh I'm not sweet Even in the warmth, I am shivering cold And I am growing old in a city I felt young in I outgrew my skin I outgrew my skin I outgrew my skin
8.
I have moved a mile away From the place where it all started It feels foreign You kissed me in that kitchen Now I've got one we can dance in But you're leaving You lived down the street from me 1 AM we're watching Twin Peaks It was lovely Last year today, I realized I loved you And that will never change I wish you would of stayed This year today, I watched as you Drove away from my place I just miss your face Frankly I miss you Now I'm in my tiny room And my bed feels big without you All that's left of you Is your hair on my bedsheets I still smell you and it kills me Cause you're out of reach Last year, last week I slept alone You came to me in my dreams And you laid with me This year, this week you slept here Next to me and now I sleep alone I just miss your skin Frankly I miss you I miss you more than the polar bears Miss the glaciers and I miss you more Than I can bear
9.
My love, my love is fierce My love induces fear When it rains, it's a goddamn hurricane All cynics fall the same I've seen the seasons change in the reflection Of your eyes on a computer screen My love has aged like a wine in the Finest cellar in Italy But what if it poisons me Too drunk to see clearly Your love was stolen in the night I didn't get to fight for What I thought was mine When it rains, it's a goddamn hurricane All cowards fall the same I've seen the seasons change in the Freckles on your back lying next to me My love withstood the fight Too long for me to give it up this easy Grew stronger than a pine, still green Cut down to be a Christmas tree Tell me something please Tell me I still come to you in your dreams Tell me you love me Tell me you still love me please Please I'll see the seasons change in a World where you no longer need me My love will never die Even when my soul leaves my body But what if it poisons me Too dumb to see clearly
