My Girls 04:24
You claimed all the heat It’s always getting hotter Everything’s harder, everything’s harder Everything’s hard For what you did to me My girls are gonna get you you’ll see For what you did to her I’m gonna show you what it’s like to hurt For what you did to her I’m gonna show you what it’s like to burn I’m running away from these emotions It’s like you’re the master of all my motions It’s massive and I can’t keep this open For you to take, and you take everything And I’m getting triggered on a Saturday night It’s hard to decide if it’s gonna be fight or flight Will I give into my emotional side? Or will I stay here and fight for my, For my right For what you did to me My girls are gonna get you you’ll see I can’t erase I can’t give way I can’t descend anymore I can hear you at my door When these memories come to me They always make my heart ache And these memories claw at me They always make make my heart ache And I’m getting triggered on a Saturday night It’s hard to decide if it’s gonna be fight or flight Will I give into my emotional side? Or will I stay here and fight for my, For my right For what you did to me My girls are gonna get you you’ll see

Never Admit 05:06
It’s the happiest memory Except the ending, except the end It’s the happiest memory Except the ending, accepting the end Throwing me under Feeding the pain Throwing me under By the waves Bringing it closer, bringing you close You’ll never admit the abuse And I said I’ll never go back there again And I said I’ll never go back there again But you pull me back to say But you pull me back to say It never happened It’s the loneliest moments With my past self flashing red It’s the loneliest moments Protecting my future self instead Warned by thunder Risking the rain Felt your hunger In the storming waves Bringing you closer, bring me close You’ll never admit the abuse You’ll never admit The emotion That you’re holding The power you hold You’ll never admit The emotions What you’re holding The powers you hold And I said I’ll never go back there again And I said I’ll never go back there again But you pull me back to say But you pull me back to say It never happened

Three Of Us 05:44
End Me Now Please End (the shutter speed) Me (a waterfall) Now (I’m begging you) Please (the reckoning) It’s telling me what I knew then, The doom I fear is imminent It’s called upon me once again And I should answer I hope the injury shares its gust In my heart is the three of us Don’t you back out now I’m counting on you For my life Why fight for my life? Why fight for my life? Why fight When we can hold hands and die Hold me close and I’ll let you cry Some things move on before their time My thoughts are plagued with suicide I might leave without saying goodbye I’m telling you what I knew then, The doom I fear is imminent It’s called upon me once again And I should answer I hope the injury shared its gust In my heart is the three of us Don’t you back out now I’m counting on you For my life Why fight for my life? Why fight for my life? Why fight When we can hold hands and die But I could never do it Your love keeps me through this And I could never do it Your love keeps me through this Your love, your love, your love Your love, your love, your love And I could never do it Your love keeps me through this Your love, your love, your love Your love, your love, your love

Heart Beat 04:27
You can break my heart But you can’t stop the beat Take what you take What you want But my energy I said You start to decay When it’s my turn, it’s my turn, It all starts to cave And you say “my turn, it’s my turn” You send me away Before it’s my turn, it’s my turn It’s all for the chase And now it’s your turn, it’s your turn Turn me away Depend on something that’s brighter The pleasure’s the game And the white boys are vipers Heart Beat You can break my heart But you can’t stop the beat Take what you take What you want But my energy It feels like the plague When it’s my turn, it’s my turn You keep it so vague, And call it my words, they’re my words I’ll cut what you crave And I say my turn, it’s my turn I was just some more waste And now it’s her turn, it’s her turn You moved on and she’s beautiful You moved on but you can’t get full You’re feeling some shame And you start to despise her I’ll be in the shade And I’ll wait to invite her You can break my heart But you can’t stop the beat Take what you take What you want But my energy Heart Beat My Heart Heart My Heart Beat Heart Beat My Heart Beat My Heart Beat My heart beat Heart, my heart beat

“Baby don’t sleep Don’t you try to fight” I open my eyes To a liquid surprise It’s a quarter to three I want him to leave My heart is open wide And I’m trying not to cry Oh what’s the meaning? What’s the point? I try to give up but I have no choice You fall on reason and I did everything to get you away from You feel numb to love and I’ll do anything to change that Not to be mean But you barely tried You opened my mouth And you looked for a sound It’s a quarter past three He tells me to breathe My ass is open wide And I’m trying not to cry Oh what’s this feeling? What’s that noise? I try to give in But I still disappoint You fall on reason and I did everything to get you away from You feel numb to love and I’ll do anything to change that And it’s not so bad It’s not so bad To live and to die for you To live torn and die

I’m wasting away On my way On my bed And I’m fucked up You said “don’t be afraid of me” Oh god, how could I not be You’re tall and you’re white And you have blue eyes You’re tall and you’re white With those perfect blue eyes Hell is a place To finally say You love me I’m facing space On my way On my bed And I’m fucked up You said “don’t let me in too deep” Oh god, how could I not see You’re tall and you’re white And you have blue eyes You’re timing was right You come every night Hell is a place To finally say You love me
