God // Human

Honey, your eyes speak to me
I’m looking for God
So she can make me feel a little bit
More human
I hope you look both ways when running
Through my mind
But whichever path you take
It’ll end up gold

I can’t help thinking about the stardust
That’s glowing on your lips
But I really shouldn’t think about sunsets
Unless they’re in your eyes
I just wanna read the heat
While I’m feeling cold

I’m wanting to waste my time thinking about God
While I hope she’s thinking about me
I promise we don’t have to talk about anything real
When I’m coming down
Just don’t let me go

I can’t help thinking about the stardust
That’s glowing on your lips
But I really shouldn’t think about sunsets
Unless they’re in your eyes
I just wanna read the heat
While I’m feeling cold

Graduation & Infatuation (Smirnoff & Tango Dreams PT.2)

I’m still waiting for the graduation of my infatuation with you
I’ve been moving ever so slow
There’s a flow to all these words
There’s a flow to how I’ll always come back to you
I thought I’d be confident by now
You’re twenty-two this time
But everything feels like you’re twenty-one
And I wish we could start again

I know the coast is where your home is
But don’t me tell you gotta go
I wanna dance ever so slow with you
I know the coast is where your home is
But don’t me tell you gotta go
I wanna dance ever so slow with you

This is supposed to be a graduation ball
And I can’t help but want to fall back into your arms
I don’t know what’s real and what isn’t
Cause I sleep tight thinking about you
And I sleep alright when I dream of you
But I believe I can’t be awake if I’m thinking of you
I guess I’m out of my mind thinking a second chance
Is what you’d give me

I know the coast is where your home is
But don’t me tell you gotta go
I wanna dance ever so slow with you
I know the coast is where your home is
But don’t tell me you gotta go
I wanna dance ever so slow with you

I can feel, I can feel
You grab the grey clouds
And fill the space with a violet sky
You can feel, you can feel
My tears on your neck
While I keep whispering
“Please don’t go”
Cause I wanna dance ever so slow
With you.

Smirnoff & Tango Dreams

Maybe this place isn’t where I belong
Cause all my mistakes are becoming vultures
Tearing me piece by piece
And maybe I’m my problem
So I don’t know whether I should stop them
I’m forgetting how to stand at parties
And what to do with my hands?
I guess I’ll use them to write words that’ll destroy
Your trust in me
But I guess I’ll let your words just strangle me
There’s something haunting
About your spilled drinks
That keeps coming up in my dreams

So give me one more pep talk
While the vultures keep score

I’m waking up breathless from this dream
I’m waking up breathless to a nightmare
I’m waking up breathless from this dream
I’m waking up breathless to a nightmare

So I’m trying to find my place in all these familiar faces
I’m feeling eighteen again
But you had red hair back then and didn’t know I exist
You’re twenty-one right now though
And your plump lips and blue eyes
Are keeping me occupied
Just keep drowning me in the violet sea on your head
I’m not sure what’s real and what’s a dream
All I know is vodka sent me here and that’s why I don’t drink it often

I’m happy you’re scaring off the vultures
If only it was like that in reality
So just tell me you love me

I’m waking up breathless from this dream
I’m waking up breathless to a nightmare
I’m waking up breathless from this dream
I’m waking up breathless to a nightmare

I’m walking outside for a cig
But the devil’s hands get me by the throat
And he’s stopping me saying whatever I’m meant to
You know it’s hard when you see yourself in his eyes
You know it’s hard when you have his blood in your veins
So I guess self doubt is the devil in my bloodstream.

Lips//Hips

I remember when your laughter
Filled my lungs and just like a sponge I’ll soak up all the love
That’s around me
Now that it’s all gone I’ll just soak up lust
Because it’s the next best thing
While I’m losing all my trust in myself
But it’s okay because it’s only my health that takes the hit

So let’s just say that I miss your spit tingling on my lips
While I keep trying not to tell everyone I miss your hips
So let me tell you I’m not the one you need
And we both know it’s half past three

I’ll keep making bad decisions
Because we both know that’s what I’m good at
I’ve started drinking vodka knowing it’s clear
Unlike the relationship I have with me and rum
And my guitar tone is becoming clean just like my nose
You’ll always be a reason for that

So let’s just say that I miss your spit tingling on my lips
While I keep trying not to tell everyone I miss your hips
So let me tell you I’m not the one you need
And we both know it’s half past three

Profusion

Lay on my lungs if it pleases you
You know flowing through my waves
The profusion of pink you give me in my veins
Mixed with the profusion of wine in my bloodstream
Is all too much
I know all of this is going to end me
But I can’t help but think a death at twenty is more profound than twenty-seven

I take it your lips are on loan
And your heart’s for keeps
I take it your lips are on loan
And my lungs are paying you back with oxygen

I’m breaking bottles like I’ll break my bones
Searching for feelings that keep me here
Cause I want to feel something different
And I’m starting to feel anaesthetised by your eyes
I get the vibes that alcohol just ruins our minds
And stardust rots our lungs

I take it your lips are on loan
And your heart’s for keeps
I take it your lips are on loan
And my lungs are paying you back with oxygen

I’ll always have a profusion for you though
Cause my heart’s for keeps

Lips

Plump cherry lips
Stop me from thinking about your hips
I wish I’d let you know
That three words need saying to you
But I can only muster a few
I’m still wondering, whether I can be your man
I’m coming up with a plan

I’m losing myself when I’m thinking about you
I know you keep feeling numb
Blue eyes keep making me run
I’m lost without a purpose or direction

I’m wanting your kisses to fill the spot between my lungs
Turn the smoke pink and my skin blue
I wish you were in my bed
Instead you’re running through my head

Plump cherry lips
Stop me from thinking about your hips
I wish I’d let you know
I’m missing you and your coastal eyes
That stop me thinking about your thighs

Porcelain necks stop me from being a mess
While rum taints my blood stream
Maybe you can fix that
Please fix that

How To Breathe In Pink Seas

Her eyes bright, pastel blue
Lay themselves in front of me
I’m lost again,
In an ocean of colours
I didn’t realise I could feel

Teach me, teach me
How to breathe again
Just like you did before

Bright lights, bright lights
They keep blinding me
I just want someone to take me home
Paint me pastel pink
And replace the black and white
Like you did before

And how, how are you?
I keep talking about myself
But I wanna know how you are
I wanna know every damn detail
About you

I keep rowing, rowing this boat out
Thinking I’ll find something
So far from where I am
But I’m left coming back
I guess home is where the heart is
So I should stay stationary

Her bright hair, mermaid pink
Lays itself out in front of me
I’m lost again
In an ocean of colours,
I didn’t realise I could feel

Teach me, teach me
How to breathe again
Just like you did before

The Coast

I’ve got a lot of compliments for you
Cause your pink hair’s flowing like the sunshine on my skin
The end of winter has left my heart paper thin
And I think twenty is the most scared I’ve ever been
If you stay I think I can be brave
Maybe I’m hard wired to chase the glistening in your blue eyes
That remind us of diamonds and why men chase them

I wanna be the makeup pallet you use
So I can kiss your skin daily
And honestly that would be a dream
But if I’m being honest I’d rather kiss your lips
Little velvet tangerines could decorate the floor
I hate making promises cause I’m not sure
I’m ever good enough to keep them
But I’ll learn what it means to keep score

If the coast is where your home is
Then I guess the coast is where my heart is
If the coast is where your home is
Then I guess the coast is where I’ll lay my head

Validation

Cherry lips so plump I could pluck them
Press them against my body
Tell me what you want me to feel
With every bruise left by your leathering
My skin feels like the stars are exploding underneath it
My hairs are standing on their ends trying to escape
From what you’re making me feel

I’m listening to the sound of your breath
Telling my neck everything it needs to hear
I’m listening to the sound of your breath
Validating me with every atom

Your nails dig deeper into the cracks
Creating waves of euphoria in my chest
Leaving scars exposing my heart
Tear it out and keep it for yourself
Since I have no use for it
Since you need it more than I do

I’m listening to the sound of your breath
Telling my neck everything it needs to hear
I’m listening to the sound of your breath
Validating me with every atom

Treat me like I belong six feet under
Closer to the core
Maybe a heart that could actually love me?
Replace my broken one

I’m listening to the sound of your breath
Telling my neck everything it needs to hear
I’m listening to the sound of your breath
Validating me with every atom

Waves

You look so chill
When you’re swaying
With that vodka orange in your hand
I know you love it when we’re both drunk
Blue eyes ostracising my lips
Until they’re against yours

I hope you’re picturing sunlight
Cause I want you tonight
Are you sure that you want me?

You look so chill
When your arm’s around my neck
With your eyeliner’s wings looking so deadly
I know you love it when my lungs are green
While copper eyes are trying to picture me and you

I hope you’re picturing sunlight
Cause I want you tonight
Are you sure that you want me?

I’d let your black curls
Mix with the brown waves on my head
To create the sea of me and you

I hope you’re picturing sunlight
Cause I want you tonight
Are you sure that you want me?
