Are you proud of me darling That I didn’t give into the flesh Even with those pills popped Her pants dropped I still had the fortitude to deny her requests
And in that moment I was so high Off of prescriptions I was too drunk to pronounce I think they were hydro- wait hol-holdup hold on a secontt No, I can stand just give me a- I’m not even that draank calm down
Even with the room spinning My consciousness fading My heart closed my eyes and turned me around
Sweetheart are you proud That the list of my goals and ambitions Is stained by your lipstick To be honest, all of my dreams are too hard to see through these rose colored glasses But they’re my greatest asset And if I ever removed them... Even just to catch up on some sleep I might give up. I might give up on you and my family and friends and life and my cat- I know I don’t have one yet but these rose colored dreams... so delightful- sigh Alright, I’ll remove them for a verse
Kiddo, am I proud? No. Absolutely not. I am not noble in turning away those who show interest in me because.. Because you aren’t mine And I’m stuck in this delusion that everything will be fine If I give it my all and move to LA Chase after rose colored dreams until they lose their color someday. And maybe No- I know that I could waste the entirety of my existence chasing after your perfection You’d think by now I would have learned my lesson.
But if you really do admire me like you say And if distance is the only thing prying our hearts away Then I’ll throw away this life- I’ll turn down tempting lasses And I’ll chase after you with my rose colored glasses
