Crystal Clear

Verse 1

Looking at those pictures of myself

Can’t recognize or feel connected

I walked through a stormy desert with you

Feeding on our passion and a dream

 

Chorus

It’s a bitter road

It’s what I’ve been told

What if I’m left alone

Keep on running

 

Verse 2

Turns out I’ve been blocking out the pain

Maybe it can justify the fog we’re in

It’s so strange to see you from a distance

I wonder if you feel the same way

 

Chorus

It’s a bitter road

Keep on running

It’s what I’ve been told

What if I’m left alone

Keep on running

Keep on running

 

Bridge

I remember thinking

“this is the end”

In a way it really was

But tragedy became a savior

And despair became our teacher

Now I know what I really want

 

Although I grieved

the casualties

It might be for the best

 

Chorus

It’s a bitter road

Keep on running

It’s what I’ve been told

(Over and over)

What if I’m left alone

Keep on running

Keep on running

 

Outro

Keep on running

Keep on running

Nowhere

Verse 1

Taking some time to simmer down when I’m alone

Give it my best try when I breathe in through my nose

You don’t like to open your mouth

When I’m cold under my rain cloud

Turns out I’m stuck here in this never ending spiral

 

Pre chorus 1

Oh when I look at you beside me

in the open

My way of coping is to cry

But it gets me

 

Chorus

Nowhere

When I dive in too deep it gets me nowhere

But I find myself rushing back again

 

Verse 2

Can’t really catch a break and it seems like that’s on me

I wanna lift you up but you won’t strengthen me

Assumptions will appear in my mind

And I might be out of line

How could I know the truth when everything’s in my head?

 

Pre chorus 2

I rack my brain to understand

But I feel rotten

My way of coping is to cry

But it gets me

 

Chorus

Nowhere

When I dive in too deep it gets me nowhere

But I find myself rushing back again

 

Bridge

into the ocean again

Just like always

 

Outro

Taking some time to simmer down when I’m alone

Give it my best try when I breathe in through my nose

Another Lover

Verse 1

Do I even wanna know

How the story goes in your head

Yeah I said we’re close

But you don’t understand

You mistook it for romance

 

Chorus

And I never said I wanted another lover

Now there’s no communication

I never said I wanted another lover

Now there’s no communication

 

Verse 2

Oh I told you that it’s fine

We’re both liars in our own way

If you told the truth

guess I could tip-toe

but it just wouldn’t change

anything, cause in your eyes

 

Pre chorus

it’s such a shame to be a friend, be a friend

You turned it into something else, something else

 

Chorus

And I never said I wanted another lover

Now there’s no communication

I never said I wanted another lover

Now there’s no communication

No you can’t come over

Cause you’re not a lover

 

Bridge

It’s such a shame to

Be a friend, be a friend

I feel like a fool

It doesn’t make any sense

 

Chorus

Cause I never said I wanted another lover

Now there’s no communication

I never said I wanted another lover

Now there’s no communication

 

No you can’t come over

Cause you’re not a lover

No you can’t come over

Cause you’re not a lover

I never said I wanted another lover

Now there’s no communication

I never said I wanted another lover

Now there’s no communication

Nice Things

Verse 1

Don’t take it the wrong way

But I don’t wanna hold your hand

When I hear myself say it out loud

It doesn’t make any sense

No I don’t wanna hold your hand

 

Chorus

I don’t like nice things

 

Verse 2

You wish me good morning

Then I just disappoint again

It’s not that I’m upset

I swear I’m just as confused as you

A harsh surface but I’m cashmere

 

Chorus

Why don’t I like nice things?

Guess I don’t like nice things

 

Bridge

I can barely express my love

Oh it rarely comes in words

Sorry

sorry I

Dont like this party

I don’t like nice things

 

Chorus

Guess I don’t like nice things

Guess I don’t like nice things

Nice things

My Garden

Verse 1

Guess you and I belong together

At least you stick with me through hard times

My therapist said you're growing, growing big

Cause I'm a specialist in watering you

 

Chorus 

We live together in my garden

I'm surrounded by my flowers

But in my mind it's only you

You poison my mind

You poison my mind

You poison my mind

 

Verse 2

If I could just welcome you with open arms

I'd lay down on the grass, let it swallow me whole

I could turn you into just another tidal wave

Oh sometimes I will lose, but at least I try

 

Chorus 

We live together in my garden

I'm surrounded by my flowers

But in my mind it's only you

You poison my mind

You poison my mind

You poison my mind

Bridge

You'll always stay here with me

Memories of who I used to be

You'll always stay here with me

Memories of who I used to be

 

You'll always stay here with me

Memories of who I used to be

Driving Home Safely

Verse 1

Driving home safely

resting assured I've left you behind

When you told me

you'd been looking at rings with your mom

I wanted to pull my eyes out 

but also give me a pat on the back

It's not so easy

to unshackle yourself when you're blind and you think you're in love

But I did it

I did it with my own hands

Though it wasn't a day too soon

I made it happen

 

Chorus 1

Cause you made every day a living hell

Every day a living hell

Every day a living hell

I think you need help

 

Verse 2

Me and my girl

We saw her favorite band, you were tagging along

but we still ate breakfast without you

And in the cold night

you would cry on my lap as I patiently sat there

Can you believe it?

When we said our goodbyes I told you I love you

But it was in the friend-way

so you turned around

And you said nothing

You said nothing at all

 

Chorus 2

And you made every day a living hell

Every day a living hell

Every day a living hell

I think you need help

Love Me Again

Verse 1

Can’t let you go no matter how hard I try

I’ve lost control

Can’t seem to fall in line

If you could just give me something

It might get me through this weekend

I’ll pretend that everything’s as it was

 

Chorus 1

And I could love me again

And you could love me again

 

Verse 2

So what's happening to us?

You're so busy with everything

And I understand

Wish that we could talk about it

Silence always feels so violent

Maybe you could wipe my tears away

 

Chorus 2

Then I could love me again

And you could love me again

 

Bridge

Oh I recall you said I’m a killer

One or two years ago

Tell me again so I know you mean it

Or am I just a bug on your back?

Tell me again cause I need to feel it

It hurts to know I never cross your mind

 

Chorus 3

Can I love me again?

And can you love me again?

New Shot

Verse 1

Tried to make it up again

Told myself I won’t do that anymore

Had your back, but you dropped mine

Were we ever really friends?

 

Think it used to be some trust there

Maybe a little shed of caring

That’s why I couldn’t understand

I was always so small to you

 

Pre-Chorus

Isn’t it embarrassing how you’re embarrassed of me?

Isn’t it embarrassing how you’re embarrassed of me?

 

Chorus

Good thing you didn’t show up, now I've got one less thing to worry about

No way you get a new shot, I honestly can’t wait to let you down 

 

Verse 2

You got a taste of what it’s like 

To be that guy everyone’s talking about

It might’ve ate you up inside

And it’s too late to turn around

 

Sometimes I’m thinking of that night

When we drove to a parking lot

Is that where it all started

A war just to bring me down

 

Pre-Chorus

Isn’t it embarrassing how you’re embarrassed of me?

Isn’t it embarrassing how you’re embarrassed of me?

Isn’t it embarrassing how you’re embarrassed of me?

Isn’t it embarrassing how you’re embarrassed of me?

 

Chorus

Good thing you didn’t show up, now I've got one less thing to worry about

No way you get a new shot, I honestly can’t wait to let you down 

Good thing you didn’t show up, now I've got one less thing to worry about

No way you get a new shot, I honestly can’t wait to let you down

 

Outro

(Good thing)

I know you’re already gone

Don’t plan on coming back

(No way)

But if you come around

I honestly can’t wait to let you down
