I've been reading my own dreams since I was ten as an outlet for my need to find some meaning every morning since I could I've tried since then no I haven't stopped believing I haven't stopped believing easy stuff everyone's had I can tell you without thinking if your teeth fall out or turn to dust if you're falling or you're sinking if you're all alone or you feel you've choked, or if the one you love is dying if you wake up feeling nothing or you wake up and you're crying there's no / halfway / point to / meet yourself / if you keep stepping back though you can't re / member / every / thing /there's a / lot still / to un/pack I started reading horoscopes when I was really young I learned my sign and memorized despite my own defiance I didn't place a lot of faith but read mine just for fun though nowadays I check in case I need a little guidance Every conversation I have had or really can recall gone through in my head time and again to document them all I have analyzed and criticized the things I say and do in case one wrong move could change the meaning that I hold to you there's no / halfway / point to / meet yourself / if you keep stepping back though you can't re / member / every / thing /there's a / lot still / to un/pack there's no / halfway / point to / meet yourself / if you keep stepping back though you can't re / member / every / thing /there's a / lot still / to un/pack I've been reading my own dreams since I was ten as an outlet for my need to find some meaning the stars have always been there for me since then so I haven't stopped believing no I haven't stopped believing

weird place 01:56
I pop my knuckles too much a bit of pressure and release my skin is soft to the touch and it's the way it'll always be thin and so easy to bruise dressed in marks as well as dirt cover it up with tattoos so no one tells when I get hurt I'm in a weird place right now depressed yet optimistic haven't tried to ask how 'cause I'm just rolling with it I don't know how long I'll have it I don't know how long it lasts but I really gotta admit It's a nice change of contrast I'm in a weird place right now I'm in a weird place right now x2 I'm doing okay somehow I'm in a weird place right now

I need more space than the universe has just sitting aside I'm begging it to borrow what I could only briefly utilize Cuz the course is so predictable, another chance I won't pass up I'll forgive and I'll forget and all you gotta do all you gotta do is show up so please don't show up you're quick to say "that thing that never hurt you that made your life so sad you know it couldn't be my fault but if it was it wasn't all that bad. You'll lead to your own downfall (x2) I've given you all I could give You've always been too sensitive you know I didn't mean it but you deserved it after all" So take it back. [.] Take back all you've ever said. You can have it, you can keep it just stay the fuck out of my head. We're both adults here [.] and I'm straightening my spine I'm standing up and stepping back and I am serious this time. I need more space than the universe has just sitting aside I'm begging it to borrow what I could only briefly utilize Cuz the course is too predictable and this time I'll pass it up I'll forgive and I'll forget but I am telling you do not show up On to say "The things that I insist upon You know that I am never wrong And if the facts do not align Dodge and point out every time No one will ever love you. (x2) I've given you all I could give You've always been too sensitive you know I didn't mean it but you deserved it after all" I need more space than the universe has just sitting aside I'm begging it to borrow what I could only briefly utilize Cuz the course is so predictable, another chance I won't pass up I'll forgive and I'll forget and all you gotta do all you gotta do is show up so please don't show up

there's something comforting about sleeping in a bed far too big for only me while rugrats, angry beavers, arnold the football head are all playing on my tv it throws me back and it makes me feel a little less lonely it reminds me of being a kid watching nickelodeon before doing my homework even tho it's what my family forbid when things were simple and I had time to think about all the things I wanted to do when I was little and my biggest concern was my grades dropping parents splitting am I gay, or just confused? (clear throat) I love drifting off to the network of slime with that familiar nick nick nick tune but if I wake up to icarly one more fucking time there's no telling what I might do dan schneider is a bad producer dan schneider is a bad producer other than drake and josh he creeps me out

it's not enough why don't you call you try so hard but you must not care at all we've got our lives and you've got yours put that aside you are to listen not be heard because bloods thicker than water if we ignore the phrase in full the meaning can be twisted to apply blood is thicker than water if the context is aside it's easier to fight than say goodbye you've changed your name your life, the plan, the song after all we've done as family to tell you you were wrong your difference in beliefs to ours has changed you your lifestyle and who you are has ruined you there's a lack of love in lack of response self reliance without concern for what your family wants because bloods thicker than water if we ignore the phrase in full the meaning can be twisted to apply blood is thicker than water if the context is aside it's easier to fight than say goodbye it's easier to fight than say goodbye it's easier to fight than say goodbye And it's about time that I said goodbye

balance 01:52
I spend longer choosing candy than anyone I've known Cause I have trouble making any choice Put me on a stage but don't hand me the phone or 9 times out of 10 I lose my voice But if you're the one to make the call // and you feel like you can't at all You dial and I'll be the one to speak Cause if there's something you can't do // No matter what I'm here for you. And I know that you'll be the same for me. Cause there's beauty in simplicity it's clear to see that you and me have beat the odds and managed to excel And when I'm numb you always know just what to do or where to go we balance one another out so well I panicked to make this gift amazing to find the chords that sound like they belong I'd written several versions with a bunch of different phrasings Cause I thought it'd be romantic but it's coming out all wrong. You pace when you panic and you hurry I freak out and I can't clean broken glass. But lucky for the both of us you're stronger than your worries and my determination is impressive as my sass. Cause there's beauty in simplicity it's clear to see that you and me have beat the odds and managed to excell And when I'm numb you always know just what to do or where to go we balance one another out so well

Isabel 01:28
there's a certain kind of feeling terrifying, though appealing and I can't describe the symptoms without feeding the cliché all the songs are making sense now and I can't even explain how things I used to scoff at I catch me doing every day Where I am and where I'd like to be I notice, it's embarrassing- 'cause everything I do as well- it all leads back to Isabel Here's the secret you already know I don't know what I'm doing or where we'll go. yeah the future sure is scary, but that's okay you mean the world to me and that's pretty gay I'm gay I'm gay I'm gay I'm gay I'm gay I'm gay I'm gay there's a certain kind of phrasing I must be missing while I'm chasing down the perfect way to tell you just how much I am a mess 'cause my cheeks get red, I can't help but smile only after just a little while of being in your presence or reading just one text This experience is completely new your voice, your laugh, the way you're you. and, well, as far as I can tell - no one's quite like my Isabel
