Track Name: Cherry Lips
You said that I was dressed just like poetry
but I don't know what you want that to mean to me

Cause words are words are words
and I don't wanna hear you
Words are words are words
and the silence cures them

With cherry lips I'll curse the things that
matter most to you your vacant flattery
the possibility of lust and a love for dishonesty

I could never be what you need in a girl
I could never be what you need
Track Name: Novelty
Remember the first time you saw me
I was in a coat the size of your living room shivering
You said winter weather was such a novelty
but that that snow hit my lashes so goddamn perfectly

and if we're being honest it's not like i wanna lie to you
and if we're being honest i will never tell you the truth

the words lay in my mouth but they don't mean anything anymore
they've all started to taste the same tired without feeling and bored

don't lie to me
don't lie to me
it's not like i wanna lie to you

i was covering your eyes you peaked through cracks in my fingers
i was leading you through traffic lights blindly
why don't you trust me?
Track Name: Trouble
your eyes give you away but so do mine
i'm trying hard not to say anything that might get me in trouble

you're not reading william butler yeats
you're listening to saves the day
don't call me out when we're drunk
because i won't know what to say

your cat is clawing at my floral suitcase
the fox is smiling and i'm wondering where you've been
