lyrics

my room smells like stale beer and memories i won't forget
i wander in my awkward thoughts;
maybe what you're doing or if you're thinking of me too
shotgunning beers 'till we're both falling backwards
talking about your family
or that guy flirting with your friend
but we both know he couldn't get her

my self-esteem's about six feet under
but you boost me up
all i want is your embrace
but it's impermanence caused this addiction

i know it's snowing outside, but i can't cut my arms off
i'm not that strong yet
i'm not that strong yet

sitting on the roof
tattered vans, your dad's sweatshirt, and high ambitions
let's look at the stars and talk about how life sucks
and how i think you're kind of cute

my self-esteem's about six feet under
but you boost me up
all i want is your embrace
but it's impermanence caused this addiction

i know it's snowing outside, but i can't cut my arms off
i'm not that strong yet
i'm not that strong yet

my love, i'll paint the world with the color of your eyes

i built these bridges out of metal so that they'd never burn
'cause wood's just not reliable
i swear that you'll never learn

you'll never learn


~~~

"...up, up the long, delirious, burning blue
i've topped the wind-swept heights with easy grace
where never lark or even eagle flew --
and, while with silent lifting mind I've trod
the high untrespassed sanctity of space,
put out my hand, and touched the face of god."
