lyrics

"You're only happy when you're fucked up" she said
And that's the kindest way anybody's put it yet
Cause I forget how lonely I've been
So this is independence: sirens and cigarettes, empty accounts, slip ups and sins
Completely naked but fully clothed under our skin
We don't have to be the way we've been
But I'm terrified we won't remember to forgive again

Don't paint me anything just save me
I'm trying my best but it's not enough just to be
Don't paint your preferences on my skin
I'm just a fucked up kid, it's all I've ever been
It's all I'll ever be

You mean so much to me, that's why I have to leave
There are better days ahead but not in this place
Easy now, keep your voice down
You're too drunk and too upset to drive home now
So take your whips to my back if it means you'll forget the rest
I'll wake a bruised and salted corpse despite trying my best

So let's chat about all the thinks we felt but never said
I'll sit in the dark until I learn to shine again

Don't paint me anything just save me
I'm trying my best but it's not enough just to be
Don't paint your preferences on my skin
I'm just a fucked up kid, it's all I've ever been
It's all I'll ever be
