When I was very young, my neighbor would give me Klondike bars I would climb in the tree that someone had planted in my backyard Everything had felt infinite, and I know it sounds cliche But i have to admit it sometimes I wish I could still feel that way But no one was home, yeah everyone was gone And I never went back because I knew all along That you were never coming home, I knew it from the start I was only five years old, but I was pretty smart And you were gone for good, yeah I was pretty smart and I knew you were gone for good When I was a little bit older, I heard that my neighbor had passed away A few years later I had a Klondike and it didn't taste the same I moved away from the house I lived in when I was five years old I was never coming back but I could see, that you were growing old

You make me love the lines on my stomach when I've been slouching for too long, the lines, the lines The lines that make the states, the ones that we have yet to see, places that aren't as beautiful if you're not next to me, the lines, the lines You make me love the way that my hair flips out and the way that my eyelids are different sizes, and my eyes are different colors You make me love myself, the thing I thought I would never do, but now I do, and I love you too, the lines You make me love the lines that we must wait in, every time that we buy something but I don't mind, cause it gives me time to talk with you And I'll wait in line with you for as long as we have to And I was only 9 when she said, "You still have baby fat? I don't have mine." I don't have mine And I was only 13 when he said, "Your BMI is far too high" Far too high. You make me love the lines on my stomach when I've been slouching for too long, the lines that make the states, the places we belong, you make me love the way that my hair flips out and the way that my eyelids are different sizes, and my eyes are different colors, you make me love myself, the thing I thought I would never do, but now I do, and I love you too.

Tell me how do you feel, is your pain oh so real, has someone amputated your leg or drowned you in the nearest lake Tell me what can I do, how can I help you, customer service is over there, but I don't think they can help you there What can I say? It's a beautiful fucking day, the sun is shining and burning my arms, someone please shut off the smoke alarms It'll be okay, I know there's bills to pay, but what's more important a house or a home, and I won't let you feel alone

I wish I could say that I like being this way But I still have my days when I do But usually, I can't sleep, usually, I can't breathe When the plans get changed And usually, I can't see, usually, I get angsty When you correct me on something that I say I can't help that I am this way I wish I could fall into a well and stay there til I feel like I can speak But usually, I'm crying, usually, I'm wishing That you were sitting next to me Cause usually I don't worry, usually I'm better off When you're just next to me When you're just next to me I wish I could say that I like being this way But I still have my days when I do But usually, you're next to me, usually you help me to believe That I am worth this life we're living And usually you make me feel like I'm the person I've always wanted to be

You know I've been feeling guilty lately And I've been hoping that you've forgotten about All the things we talked about On your birthday I had a mixed CD and drawing That I had forgotten to give you on that day So I never gave you anything and it's really starting to bug me You know it's really not that easy to bring something like that up I can't just give you all the things I have that I should've given you two months ago because, if I did, you might think I'm a forgetful jerk But I am So I guess you'll never know what I got you for your birthday And it's gonna stay that way until the next holiday

When I open up my mouth all this bullshit comes out, and I drown When I try to say what I wanna say it never comes out right I always end up hurting feelings or end up in a fight I can't help but get mad at myself when everything goes wrong The things I say live in the back of my brain and I start to feel withdrawn But at least I know that it's not always my fault And I start to feel okay once and for all The times I say things the right way are the times I feel the best I don't know what it's like to get a home run but I swear to god, it's not as good as this When I try to say what I wanna say, and it comes out perfectly You better watch out, cause I'm on top of the world And I don't plan to leave And I can't help but get mad at myself, in the back of my mind When I try to say what I wanna say and it never comes out right But at least I know that it's not always my fault And I start to feel okay once and for all I can't help but get mad at myself when everything goes wrong The things I say live in the back of my brain and I start to feel withdrawn But at least I know that it's not always my fault And I start to feel okay, I start to feel okay once and for all

about

Kyle Hall is my awesome bud that I met a while ago, back in June of 2013, and he ended up playing some acoustic shows in Youngstown and also some shows with Kitten Crisis and Toopin. Kyle Hall is a really amazing person and I'm so grateful to be putting out a split with him -- if you ever get the chance, go to one of his shows and say hello!
