lyrics

now I got off work at 2 am
and I'm awake 2 hours later
turned on my old phone and read all the old texts
and I'm afraid they made me miss her
and it was cool when we skipped school
and my mom never knew
you were hiding in my room
I learned everything about sex with you it's true

I believed us when we swore we never would
but we did
we grew

Into different people
with different lives
who have different nights
with different girls and different guys
and I will try not to lie
because my mom says it brings her down
but the truth is I self sabotage
and all that I've got
are these songs that I love that other people wrote out

now I dropped you off at 3 a m
and my mouths a little bitter
you're scared you'll get hurt
well you're a talented liar
but we're not off Tess, we're just tired
and I wish my favorite band would last more than a week
I wish love wouldn't leave with the drinks in our bloodstream
or fade with the sun like the dreams we have while we sleep

Into different people
with different lives
who have different nights
with different girls and different guys
and I will try not to lie
because my mom says it brings her down
but the truth is I self sabotage
and all that I've got
are these songs that I love that other people wrote out

reciprocity
confidently believing in such balancing
the illusion is beautiful
but immensely misleading
you see I'm fleeting and fickle
like the shadows of dancing leaves
the sun and the wind
produce lies without meaning
so please be forgiving
they're no better than me
the law of balancing reads
if I'm falling you're leaving

Into different people
with different lives
who have different nights
with different girls and different guys
and I will try not to lie
because my mom says it brings her down
but the truth is I self sabotage
and all that I've got
are these songs that I love that other people wrote out
