It wasn't your fault at all
I didn't know who to call, But
You were still in my logs

Always think of your face
An animal I couldn't tame, Yet
I know that nobody's to blame

Working on making it better
Know that it only gets better
I might never let you go
You always make me better
Help me out, under the weather
I might never let you go

I didn't know how to do it
Guess it's only true if the shoe fits
Can't we just watch a movie?

You always think I'm a player;
Got some things I ain't said yet.
Do you really want a relationship?

Working on making it better
Know that it only gets better
I might never let you go
You always make me better
Help me out, under the weather
I might never let you go
Just about the passing time between building trust and having a relationship.

Hidden eyes behind a lock
It may not be the time
It wasn't by design
Veronica

Rabbit holes may lead to better places
Far away from where we were before
Can't you see the way I feel about you

Posted her vacancy for love
Knows her nose can lie
Right between her eyes
Veronica

Rabbit holes may lead to better places
Far away from where we used to be
Can't you tell me only what is true

Dreams of futures stories told
Forbidden fruit
and Parachutes
Veronica

What if we ran away
Followed our gaze;
Never closed our eyes.
I never said good-bye.
I never said good-bye.

Broken roads and new beginnings,
Back on top, an old position.
Wishes tied to poisoned stitches
Mind's a sink of dirty dishes.

Foot on the gas and head on the ground;
I'm second guessing all i've found.
If you were here i'd tell you to be better.
If she was me i'd never left her.

What if we ran away
Followed our gaze;
Never closed our eyes.
I never said good-bye.
I never said good-bye.

Staples hold down drying clothes.
Clothes pins boil on the stove.
Chores undone but my bags are packed;
No good-byes, no looking back.

What if we ran away
Followed our gaze;
Never closed our eyes.
I never said good-bye.
I never said good-bye.

Glass half-full,
Hell, I can't tell anymore.
Thought I knew what I needed
In This World.

Not too dull,
Yet, not sharp anymore.
Thought I knew where I'd end up
In This World.

I swear that life is clearer at 3:18 am.
The moon was all I needed in a friend.
Wish I was there, head upon your chest,
Your craters serve as pillows and my bed.

Half of nothing
Must be more than you'd expect.
Here I stand, against the odds.
In This World.

I swear that life is clearer at 3:26 am.
This notebook's all I needed in a friend.
Wish you were here, right up to the end,
Better off a little love to to lend.

Mama-raised,
Daddy's gone, lost in a maze.
Make a choice then make your play.
I can't wait another day
In This World.

— The End —
