Track Name: Her
You kept your few comittments messy
And often times would just forget me
I was much weaker when you met me
That's the reason why you kept me

And to think we didn't want her

I had a dream we kept our daughter
Just like me, jaw like her father's
She promised God he was her saviour
And never asked what we just gave her

And to think we didn't want her
Track Name: Lucky
Bodies fighting feelings, fighting my response
Little fires in your fingertips
I wanted you

Talking, quiet moments in the wake of night
Sleepy kid, he held me in his arms
He loved me

Hope kept my windows closed
It was him and I, it often was
The time my life reserved for us
Still by my windowsill
Never before, never will be
In those days, I was lucky

Needle writing lyrics that he gave to me
We were sleepy kids with heavy hearts in daylight
Back off, you all told me to have faith in you
We all promised and we all backed out
We gave up

Hope kept my windows closed
It was him and I, it often was
The time my life reserved for us
Still by my windowsill
Never before, never will be
In those days, I was lucky
Track Name: Kids
My sleeves are wet, like a kid
A disregard for consequence
I hide out like a kid
My courage feeds off ignorance

I begin my sentences all jumbled with words
Wondering if you think I'm smart
Or at least interesting

I knew you as a kid
You grew older, I stayed the same
In the night, we were kids
But with the dawn break, something changed
With the dawn break, you weren't the same

I begin my sentences all jumbled with words
Wondering if you think I'm smart
Or at least interesting
Track Name: Easier
He wouldn't tell you but I was before you
And all inbetween
I drove for hours to be a one-person crowd
He told me everything
And I'm the only one who knew

Did it get easier for you?
Yeah, it got better for me, too
The lights came on again
I got his songs out of my head

He will insist I had the sun in my eyes when I was crying
Does he pull shit like that on you?
I plan to keep the things he said in my sleep alive forever
Pretend he never let me down

Did it get easier for you?
Yeah, it got better for me, too
The lights came on again
I got his songs out of my head

Holding my cigarette is emptiness
Holding his hand is desperate
Holding his heart, there inside your bed
Holding to what isn't over yet

Did it get easier for you?
Yeah, it got better for me, too
The lights came on again
I got his songs out of my head
Track Name: Motherhood
I sit and wonder why
all these cliche dreams that I
keep spitting out like I will die
without a thought made in my mind

You told me what to do
But no words made it through
I told you I wanted you, too
All of the pieces that make

Lonely days in Hamilton
I'm thinking of every boy I've ever loved
My heart drowns when winter comes
I'll cut you out, just like every other one

I want you back
Even though we wouldn't last
I want you back
Even though we wouldn't last

This, the last time that we kissed
My left hand closed to a fist
All the moments that I missed
Came spilling out without assist

There, the day you pulled my hair
You said they'd hear us from downstairs
And though they could, we didn't care
Life's too short for it to be

Want to speak, but you interrupt
I'm on the bus when the last countdown goes off
Calling home and hanging up
You know it's me, even though my number's blocked

I want you back
Even though we wouldn't last
I want you back
Even though we wouldn't last

I want you to come in me
Exploit my right to motherhood
I want you to come in me
Leave me like a father could

I want you back
Even though we wouldn't last
I want you back
Even though we wouldn't last

I want you back
