lyrics

The sun licked my face through the cracked blinds
I turned on, and layed, still, through my squinting eyes
Last night I got high, and went back to July
I'm eating your lips on your torn self-portrait
She's got eyes on the back of my bed
I'm self conscious and anxious as she watches me undress
I'm alone for the first time in ten months and wondering
Why would I set fire to my life again this time

I didn't care if I lost all my friends
I imagine myself dying when I drive through intersections
We put meaning into that little ball of lint

Fuck his name, fuck last night, fuck your face
I'm so tired of acting like it's all okay
My mom's got this friend, she's gonna die in a few days
Oh I'm lost, oh I'm lost, Oh I'm lost

I try to avoid taking broadway
or saying your name
You wake me up every morning
I went out last night and ran into the sun
She sang to me,
"I miss being a tree"

I spent almost a year crying onto your shoulder
& Now that I don't have you, I've been forced to get older
We hid our love inside that little ball of lint

Fuck his name, fuck last night, fuck your face
I'm so tired, I hate everyone and everything
Some days my mom's my only friend
I'm fucked when she leaves
Oh, please don't leave me

I'll always wish the summer would've never ended
but it did, and it burns my heart
Now I'm just trying to mend it and not fall apart
and Tess, you're really making it hard

And for some reason, I'm still holding on to that little ball of lint

Fuck his name, fuck last night, fuck your face
I'm so tired, I don't understand a single thing
Suzanne says she's surprised but she's not scared to die
Oh I'm lost, Oh I'm lost, where am I?
Oh I'm lost, Oh I'm lost, who am I?
Oh I'm lost, Oh I'm lost, Oh I'm fine
