lyrics

Teddy Faley

I told her I was chillin, right
I ain't been around the way
Been hiding from the world, inside the world that I create
Met a girl, took her pulse for granted
Tandem hands around her waist
I told I don't ever act this way

I told her I been chillin, right
Been posted at my spot
That she’d only find my function if she check at where I’m not
That I took the long way around a short drop, and broke my own leg
Like “how you gon walk away from someone before his bones mend”
I walk a tightrope with palms that read ‘show praise’
And got a tattoo on my face that says ‘don’t pray’
I cartwheel in the dark, drunk, but it's ok
I told I don't ever act this way

You see, we was all thumbs and buscuits
but both us is different
I told her “some worlds we is, girl, in some worlds we isn't”
she said “Well in this one, you’re so close I can smell what you’re missin”
And it wouldn't fit inside of her meticulous indifference
I'm tearing up the front yard, she sittin on her mittens
I'm a drunk ex who don’t text, I’m too proud to live with
I told her everything was jesus
Then she kitchen sinked the everything between us

So I told her I been wide open
Tattooed my blindfold in
Hope to be the kinda memory she cant cope with
We rocked the boat, displacing water out her ocean
I’d look her in her eyes and she would look in mine and close ‘em

And Gus never liked you
That's why he pissed on all your shit then he dropped the mic to spite you
But a pattern is a pattern, even joyless as hauki
I’m just another lion's tooth

And Gus never liked you
That's why he pissed on all your shit and then he
pissed on all your, pissed on all your shit
But a pattern is a pattern, even joyless as hauki
I’m just another lion's tooth
She shied away from lying to

Nah, I ain't mad, I feel marvelous
Opened my broken heart starter kit
Sharpened it
Back on pharmacist’s arm like no charge for this
He told that there's other fish
I aint understand his argument


But I do, do one thing well
That’s telling her
I ain't myself
