DFTM 03:33
VERSE 1 I came here to be alone, and I'm staring at my phone I turn away after everything you say, you've made it clear that you don't wanna hear me And I wish I'd stayed at home PRECHORUS 1 A-B-C, do I need to spell it out for you? 1-2-3, times is more than an accident, I want you to CHORUS Tell me why you thought that you could touch me Lights low but I see you clearly Reaching out like some kind of creep I told you not to fucking touch me VERSE 2 I could make a scene and make myself the bad guy And you can tell your friends about the crazy bitch you met last night When you were being nice, yeah right PRECHORUS 2 A-B-C, do I need to spell it out for you Hands off me, I'm prepared to make you regret why you came here [CHORUS] BRIDGE Even if I wanted to Which I'd never want to It's so easy to see through Everything you're trying to do [CHORUS]

One Step 04:04
VERSE 1 Too old to be running around without what it takes to be someone willing to ask me “is this a mistake?” You’re at an end You’ve given all that you can spend Waiting only works for so long, What is there to defend PRECHORUS From an old friend? Who doesn’t want to see happen again CHORUS Starts with an ember, one step remember Keep it together, coz it’s all on you Stop sinking under, you’re not a number Making me wonder why it’s all on you VERSE 2 Tangled in a world that won’t hear you You’ve got more than this Told me there’s some things that you won’t do What is there to miss? Look where you are From where I’m standing it’s not far To get where I think you should be, you deserve it all PRECHORUS Everything I can give you Is only worth what you want it to [CHORUS] BRIDGE PRECHORUS Never too late to wake up From what you said wouldn’t happen again [CHORUS x 2]

Don't Go 03:28
VERSE 1 Is it too soon to say we’re walking different ways? But we can still make time I get the feeling that you’re dreaming further I’m hoping that I’m still on your mind CHORUS Don’t go fall in love Don’t go mess it up Don’t go fall in love without me Stay now if you can Stay now hold my hand Don’t go fall in love without me VERSE 2 I know without a doubt, I’m drawing this one out We’re into overtime We won’t say it, but we know it ends here Please know you’ll always be on my mind [CHORUS] BRIDGE [CHORUS]

Obvious 03:22
VERSE 1 I’ve been out every night this week I’m not sure I know how to speak Without a glass of wine in hand My bank account is getting nervous It can’t take another purchase Tells me “Bitch, you need to stay at home” PRECHORUS (We know) that this is bad for us (We know) we’ll never give it up (We know) nothing is good enough (We know) we’re all just acting tough Until we think of something better CHORUS How could anyone say no? I think it’s obvious, obvious though How could anyone say no? I think it’s obvious, obvious though VERSE 2 Emptiness can make you restless Lately i’ve been overzealous This pace is so unsustainable [PRECHORUS] [CHORUS] BRIDGE Can people stop making plans with me ‘cause I don’t know how to set boundaries [CHORUS]

Wish 04:15
VERSE 1 I wish I knew what to do to make it up to you (I’m on thin ice) I wish I knew what to say to make it go away (I’m on thin ice) I wish I knew what to do to make it up to you (I’m on thin ice) I wish I knew how to be right where you needed me (I’m on thin ice) PRE-CHORUS I couldn’t make it there, too caught up in life I know it feels unfair CHORUS What should I look for? Wish you’d told me this before running out the door I’ll be waiting for you to come home It’s another night You’re so late, are you alright? You left on your light I’ll be waiting for you to come home VERSE 2 I wish I could be the one who never has to run (I’m doing fine) I hope you can understand, I’m doing the best I can (I’m doing fine) I wish I could be the one who never has to run (I’m doing fine) I hope I can see you soon, just let me get back to you (I’m doing fine) PRE-CHORUS I never made it there, too caught up in life I know it feels unfair [CHORUS] BRIDGE Wish I could stay longer than just one day Wish I could stay longer than just one day Wish I could stay longer than just one day [CHORUS]

Lighters 03:03
VERSE 1 I’ve been angry before, now I’m all burnt out Matches just don’t last, lighters don’t come back. I won’t look at my phone, some things are better alone Know how many’s left, no-one’s that impressed. CHORUS There’s always a reason why You can’t be around tonight There’s always a new reply Talkin’ bout the ways you tried VERSE 2 I’ve quit more than once, every other month Would you believe me? Folding when you pressure me. Menthols aren’t so cheap, maybe it is that deep Caught between my head, and texts I left unread. [CHORUS] VERSE 3 I’ve been angry too long, always tryna be strong Thresholds just don’t keep, Breaking while asleep.

Quit 03:43
VERSE 1 Tiptoe through the kitchen, so I can get my keys, you won’t notice me Didn’t say goodbye then. Sorry I’m a creep, but you’re cute when you’re asleep. Always late to work, early mornings hurt God I’m such a mess But I don’t really care, can you come dye my hair? PRE-CHORUS I wanna know how far you would go, you would go I wanna know how far you would go, you would go CHORUS Hate your 7am alarm Would you quit, would you quit, would you quit, would you quit for me? Hate the way I smoke too much Would you quit, would you quit, would you quit, would you quit for me? We stay up too late. Think I like you too much, This is it, this is it, this is it, this is it for me. VERSE 2 Won’t get out of bed, drag my thread by thread Into a sea of coffee cups I don’t really care, but it all adds up. [PRE-CHORUS] [CHORUS]

Vertigo 03:12
VERSE 1 I’ve been caught off guard, never thought about this part. Try not to panic, but that’s all I’m good at, I’m Content with fantasy, but when you look at me Even just briefly, it overwhelms me, I PRE-CHORUS I’m on the edge, hearing echos, this feels like vertigo. I’m on the edge, hearing echos, this feels like vertigo. CHORUS Racing thoughts keep me awake at night, I can’t help wonder why You say you’ve got me on your mind all the time. Racing heartbeat scares me, overjoyed and terrified of All the ways I could be on your mind all the time. (On your mind all the time) (On your mind all the time) VERSE 2 You’re here, it’s all I want, too much of not enough I’m barely breathing, too caught up thinking, I Wait for the words to hit my heart, can’t find the phrase, it falls apart. Are you good at catching? Cause I’m so good at falling. [PRE-CHORUS] [CHORUS]
9.
VERSE 1 No sleep, no time, wonder when I stopped feeling fine. My head hurts, I can’t move. Where should I start? Tell me what to do. Who needs healthy coping means when you’ve got cards and stars and things? All my shit’s in retrograde, I wonder if you feel the same? PRE-CHORUS Maybe if I draw the right card, I’ll have the chance to get better. Maybe if I draw the right card, I’ll have the chance to get better. All I want is to get better, All I want is to get better, All I want is to get better, All I wanted… CHORUS I’m waking up, I’m stressing out I don’t know why I always draw the Nine of Swords I wear a smile, I play the fool, But it feels like I’ll always draw the Nine of Swords VERSE 2 Is this that bad? Oh good, it’s worse than I thought! Reverse after reverse card, why did I have to make things so hard? So hard. [PRE-CHORUS] [CHORUS] OUTRO Don’t know why it has to be always so hard.

Dissolve 02:52
VERSE 1 I’ve waited for so long to see more of you And I’m not surprised that you’ve got better things to do Maybe you stopped caring when I wasn’t just a call away? It says a lot you’ve let it end this way. CHORUS Is it my anxiety that makes me think you’re sick of me? Did I do something, or did we dissolve? Is it my anxiety that makes me think you’re sick of me? Did I do something, or did we dissolve? Dissolve. VERSE 2 I won’t wait around for you as much these days It’s just, when I see you, you’ve got less and less to say Feels like we’re repeating: “How are you?” “I’m good” “I’ll see you soon” I don’t wanna stay stuck in this loop with you. [CHORUS]

Robert Smith 03:12
VERSE 1 I want to tell lies to your Mum and Dad, I want them to think I’m fun I want all your friends to talk about me When I’m not there to tell the truth I want to be goth and I want to be pop And I want you to notice it I wanna wear black with sequins up the back I wanna be like Robert Smith CHORUS I need to know what you think of me Can I convince you I’m interesting? I need to know what you’re thinking VERSE 2 I want your ex to be scared of me Want me, watch me, turn you down Wanna wear a loose fit, bright red lipstick, confuse your sexuality Tell Morrissey he’s become everything he told us not to be I wanna be like Robert Smith [CHORUS] BRIDGE I need to know what you’re thinking I need to know, now All I want to be, is what you wanna see, live on TV I wanna wear some new expensive shoes, I wanna overdress for you I wanna be that bitch God I wanna be Just like Robert Smith When you look at me Make you clench your teeth [CHORUS]

Two Hearts 03:39
VERSE 1 Two hearts, so far apart, sitting in the same car Avoiding awkward conversation. Two close to what could have been, we’re breathing each other in, I can taste this mistake we’re making. PRE-CHORUS And all my friends think I’m crazy, But I’m just crazy about you, You... VERSE 2 Two hearts, one fantasy: someone who’s good for me, You missed the mark but I can ignore it. I gave you so much of me, you still wanted more from me, You always left me running on empty. PRE-CHORUS 2 And all my friends think I’m crazy, But I’m just crazy about you. And I don’t want to want this but I CHORUS I’m so tired of doing this alone, I’ve been trying too hard to take you home, alone. You’ve been taking up to much of my time, I’m trying too hard to make you mine, all mine. VERSE 3 Two hearts may meet again, could I even handle it? Would it match up to what’s in my mind? Relive that night again, but rearrange it: Remove the point where we crossed that line. [PRE-CHORUS 2] [CHORUS]
