Licorice 01:30
I’m the one who should be Your blanket when You can’t sleep But i’m so scared of everything Jealous you can hide that feeling We both have but don’t speak of It vibrates from the floor above It’s in the scent of licorice It’s bleeding from a broken dish While I hide outside and wish That my whole life were just a glitch You close your eyes and you sleep Sleep another day Maybe it will go away Sleep another year Don’t need to waste Your time with tears All the shouting’s Just white noise All the shaking’s Just a voice Shut your mind And keep your poise What’s the point in crying?
In my dreams I’m all I dreamed I could be When they end I realize it’s not me Just some shadow with my shape and voice Someone who’s never made the noise People make when they have never been That burning feeling in someone’s chest Want to be the face someone will miss When their eyes go dim and their memory slips Oh, to be my shadow To feel what I fear I’ll never know Oh, watch that burning feeling grow How lovely it is to live in the shade In my dreams you’re all I dreamed you would be The harmony to my melody Where I am the parts glowing inside The parts that make you feel so alive Like mine, your shadow’s not much like you Its crimson blood is made out of love It’s not afraid of what could be It moves its lips the way that I dreamed Oh, to be our shadows To feel what we know we’ll never know Oh, watch that burning feeling grow We’re only meant to be in the shade
One dozen days of you Oh, somehow I always knew One mid-week evening I’d memorize the way you sing The way that your lips Softly curl when you speak Of “The Purple Bottle” I hope you’ll find inside of me Would it be okay If i sang your name? The letters still look strange Several dozen days That might start to change Several dozen days You’d stay, you’d stay I know it’ll be a while Several dozen hundred miles I hope you won’t forget The lines between my chin and chest The way that my lips are Learning what yours like to do When we’re in The Bottle For several dozen hundred days
