lyrics

I was lying in our deep talks
Because I don’t want to disappoint you too much
No one ever taught me how to be anything but ashamed.
I’m finding faces in the floorboards.
The wooden patterns stare at me like they’re bored.
It’s like a song in my head but I can’t figure out the chords.

No one ever calls me by my real name.
They just right through me. It’s a damn shame.

I was lying when we caught up.
Because I know you don’t care about me all that much.
You’re just waiting for the next time you can speak.
I’m turning corners walking nowhere.
I’m asking questions but there’s no one there.
I ain’t low enough to stop breathing so my lungs will hold on to the air.

Time will poison your heart.
If you’re trying to close your eyes
And count the seconds as they go by
Time will poison your heart.
