Track Name: i am not warm
i am not warm
i am not cheek to cheek
i am not the person you want me to be
i was thinking about that this morning
while i watched you sleep
while i rubbed your back and reminded you to breathe

i'm sorry i'm prone to recoil
a kiss on my neck feels like a spider's web
i need to be alone
but i always return
after i breath and lay my head and rest my eyes
Track Name: losing my cool
you would kiss me when we were seventeen
by the river in secrecy
i watched the lightning illuminate your form
in my window in the spring
listening to you breathe
make it in time with me

kiss me when i'm twenty-three
it doesn't mean a thing to me
until i'm home and everything goes from green
to fire and ghouls
i'm losing my cool
dreaming of your neck
soft and smooth in our bed
your shape and the depth
of your love

weighing coincidence and prophecy
thinking of death and what matters to me
what i have left and what i'll lose
and will it be you?
Track Name: am i good
am i good?
drag my feet from where i stood
in dirt plots i revel all my life
bad blood from biting my tongue
all the time

can i lie?
you're still the apple of my eye
but this morning i wanted to die
i can live my life with dignity and purpose
but what am i worth if i can't reciprocate your love?
