it's beautiful out today i wish you could take me upstate to the little place you would tell me about when you'd sense that I'd want to escape texas is a land-locked state it's a little bit far away from the water, from the home that I've wanted to make it somehow, in the city, you make it there and you make it anywhere, anywhere, but i've been anywhere and it's not what I want I wanna be still with you you keep your socks on in bed keep our hearth warm "see the trees' shadows lie in black pools in the lawns" you're the breeze in my austin nights you're the breeze in my austin nights you're the breeze in my austin nights

there's a party and we're all going and we're all growing up somebody's driving and he will be drinking and no one's going back 'cause we've tried hungry and we've tried full and nothing seems enough so tonight, tonight, the boys are gonna go for more more more and I want a love that falls as fast as a body from the balcony, and I want a kiss like my heart is hitting the ground I'm holding my breath with a baseball bat though I don't know what I'm waiting for, I am not gonna be what my daddy wants me to be smell that, it's wet grass, and smoke in my hair I think I've had enough but he wants a finale and I came prepared and we're not going back and I've tried sharing and I've tried caring and I've tried putting out but the boys boys boys keep coming on for more more more and change change change is gonna come, but when when when?

the black hole of the window where you sleep the night breeze carries something sweet a peach tree wild women don't get the blues but I find that lately I've been crying like a tall child so please hurry leave me I can't breathe please don't say you love me 胸がはち切れそうで one word from you and I would jump off of this ledge I'm on baby tell me "don't," so I can crawl back in and I was so young when I behaved twenty five yet now I find I've grown into a tall child and I don't wanna go home yet let me walk to the top of the big night sky

I don't know what to do without you I don't know where to put my hands I've been trying to lay my head down I'm writing this at 3am I don't need the world to see that I've been the best I can be, but I don't think I could stand to be where you don't see me On sunny days I go out walking I end up on a tree-lined street I look up at the gaps of sunlight I miss you more than anything I don't need the world to see that I've been the best I can be, but I don't think I could stand to be where you don't see me and autumn comes when you're not yet done with the summer passing by, but I don't think I could stand to be where you don't see me

I don't smoke except for when I'm missing you to remember your mouth, how it tasted true and I don't smoke except for after I've held you, baby being with you makes the flame burn good so if you need to be mean be mean to me I can take it and put it inside of me if your hands need to break more than trinkets in your room you can lean on my arm as you break my heart I'm what's left of when we swam under the moon now the rest of my days are just waiting for when you come down and tell me I was meant for you, baby being with you makes the flame burn good if you need to be mean be mean to me I can take it and put it inside of me if your hands need to break more than trinkets in your room you can lean on my arm as you break my heart just don't leave me alone wondering where you are I am stronger than you give me credit for if your hands need to break more than trinkets in your room you can lean on my arm as you break my heart

it's a windy afternoon can't afford to buy my food or the drive I need to go further than they said I'd go he only loves me when there's a means he means to end oh I miss when we first met he didn't know me yet so take me out baby makes no difference where we'll be as long as we're out in the sun take me out baby take me out baby doesn't matter where we'll be but please under the light of day take me out take me out take me out baby

I will retire to the salton sea at the age of 23 for I'm starting to learn I may never be free but though I may never be free fuck you and your money I'm tired of your money and I sit on the curb 'cause it's the prettiest night with no one else in sight you know I wore this dress for you these killer heels for you see the dark it moves with every breath of the breeze (aaaaaaaa etc)

i will 02:54
I will take good care of you I will take good care of you everything you feel is good if you would only let you i will wash your hair at night and dry it off with care I will see your body bare and still I will live here so stay with me hold my hand there’s no need to be brave and all the quiet nights you bear seal them up with care no one needs to know they’re there for I will hold them for you ‘cause all I ever wanted is here all I ever wanted all I want is always you it’s always you and we’re not out of the tunnel I bet you though there's an end stay with me hold my hand there's no need to be brave and while you sleep I'll be scared so by the time you wake I'll be brave I'll be brave I'll be brave

carry me out 03:53
at night on the roof top I untie my hair and watch from my plastic chair as my dark hair unleashes the night the scent of flowers still in bloom from morning shower and I say your name in hopes you'll hear it in the stars and carry me out carry me out I drive when it rains at night when it rains I drive and the headlight spirits they lead me down the styx so black it shines and carry me out carry me out

all of this turbulence wasn't forecasted apologies from the intercom and I am relieved that I'd left my room tidy they'll think of me kindly when they come for my things they'll never know how I'd stared at the dark in that room with no thoughts like a blood-sniffing shark and while my dreams made music in the night carefully I was going to live you wouldn't leave till we loved in the morning you'd learned from movies how love ought to be and you'd say you love me and look in my eyes but I know through mine you were looking in yours and did you know the liberty bell is a replica silently housed in its original walls and while its dreams played music in the night quietly it was told to believe I always wanted to die clean and pretty but I'd be too busy on working days so I am relieved that the turbulence wasn't forecasted I couldn't have changed anyways I am relieved that I'd left my room tidy goodbye
