I Keep Floating Away

Your love is fresh poured concrete thick No one can touch it with a stick Your love makes me feel sick You clawed your way down to the quick Your love fits me with perfect ease Slowly it grows like a disease Your love is gonna be the death of me and no one else will ever see Your love could withstand hurricanes See you just standing in the rain Your love is never gonna be enough And maybe that is just our luck

Progress 04:05
I hate myself a little bit less than I did yesterday I'm making progress I've still got a lot to figure out But so do you and so does everybody else I hate myself a little bit less than I did yesterday I'm making progress I hate myself a little bit less than I did yesterday I'm making progress I'm making - ahhhhhhhhhhh I'm making progress I'm - ahhhhhhhhhhh I'm making progress I've been feeling a little left out That's okay, I don't even need them 'Cause I hate myself a little bit less than I did yesterday I'm making progress I'm making - ahhhhhhhhhhh I'm making progress I'm - ahhhhhhhhhhh I'm making progress

I need you to say her name once in a while Just to keep my heart straight Keep from running wild I don't think we can be friends anymore I don't think we can be friends anymore I need you to say her name once in a while Just to keep my heart straight Keep from running wild I don't think we can be friends anymore I don't think we can be friends anymore

He’s been breaking my heart Since the first day that I met him He said be good be safe But I’m still tryna shake it It’s like walking on nails Tryna break out of jail It’s making me sad Making me cry Got some mad melancholia I’m crossing my heart Hoping I’ll die Got some mad melancholia Bad thoughts bad vibes Living in my mind I wish I was just dreaming It’s like walking on nails Tryna break out of jail It’s making me sad Making me cry Got some mad melancholia I’m crossing my heart Hoping I’ll die Got some mad melancholia It’s making me sad Making me cry Got some mad melancholia I’m wasting my life Closing my eyes Got some mad melancholia Mad Melancholia Mad Melancholia Mad Melancholia Mad Melancholia Mad Melancholia Mad Melancholia Mad Melancholia Mad Melancholia

Loose Ends 03:31
(What would you) (What would you) What would you do if you ran into me? I’ve got a weight on my chest at the possibility Bittersweet at best Cold-hearted empathy We could just pretend And not say anything The lines between your eyes Might say it all The fading of the night Might make the call I’ve got loose ends That still need tying Something so rare Must be worth finding Blacken your lungs Bruise up your hands Everything we wanted We could still have The lines between your eyes Might say it all The fading of the night Might make the call The lines between your eyes Might say it all The fading of the night Might make the call

Baby I’ve got money on my mind Fake new and drugs A view of the skyline What are you gonna do When we all get blue? Baby I want you with me all the time Staring at walls I’m falling through the night What are you gonna do When we all get blue? Baby I’ve got money on my mind Fake news and blood A view of the skyline What are you gonna do When we all get blue? What are you gonna do When we all get blue? What are you gonna do? What are you gonna do?

There’s a storm warning when you walk in the room There’s a storm warning just for you Just for you Storm warning when you walk in the room Nothing is new, nothing is clean Nothing means anything anymore

He was standing outside rolling a cigarette He asked me for a light And fell into my life And just like when you’re dying and you see everything We were rising in each exhale Tennessee baby, stay with me There’s no horizon as far as I can see Tennessee baby, stay with me Nothing about this makes sense to me I held on to every work like a small child He dug his fingers in my arm like I should shake out all the fires And just like when you’re crying and your eyes turn red You can hide those kind of feelings Tennessee baby, stay with me There’s no horizon as far as I can see Tennessee baby, stay with me Nothing about this makes sense to me
9.
I’m tired of not knowing where I’m going I just keep floating away Nothing stays Nothing fits perfectly I’m always on the outside looking sideways For the impossible things For a taste Just to know how it feels (Did you hear the news? Nothing’s gonna save you) (Did you hear the news? Nothing’s gonna save you)
