Track Name: I Miss You
Let's not have this conversation,
I'm tired of hearing my voice breaking,
Don't say you'll follow me outside
Just let me go and be myself
I'll sprint- run home and get back to my tiny little bedroom
it's only 80ks away.

And I can't stand a single glance of your smokey eyes all glassed and red
as you wrap your tattooed arms around my waist
and if I leave now maybe I can see
the sunrise melt over an open sea
and I'll forget about this angry city and everyone who ever hurt me

Pin dived into my world, you barely made a ripple
In this ship-wreck of ex boyfriends dancing on a lonely table
you
pulled me down and tucked me in
I barely caught myself breaking
and the weather will go and change it's mind
and I'll change mine

Don't you ask me if I miss you
my heart aches and every morsel of me wants every inch of you
and i hate the way it sounds but my head and heart are perpendicular
at wits ends, can we just go to bed?

And we stood there shaking from the burns
and we watched the band make offensive slurs and you never said one single thing
and all I want is you to be happy darling, come stand here
and I'll hold your sweet hand again

Don't you ask me if I miss you
my heart aches and every morsel of me wants every inch of you
and I hate the way it sounds but my head and heart are perpendicular
at wits ends, can we just go to bedddddddd?
Track Name: Your Sad Song
Here's your sad song, love
today I cut my hair and jeans and drank my weight in beers cos you are gone
flying down Parramatta road now, this will always be your home
I'm so drunk on words I've written and I've no idea where I should go, love.

You were stealing Centrelink and neither of us can commit
and you love wroughting every single system (wroughting is deffo not a word oh well)
you were stealing centrelink and none of us could say a thing
and the world doesn't owe you anything more than it owes me

We coulda made it if we ran the way
or if we ran away
I never liked who this city made of you and me
and the credit cards are snapping
and I feel the end is coming
and I'd rather sleep than fly
I really tried

We were drunk and disorderly, running down King Street, love
Screaming at this bloody government cos there's always something wrong with it, love
We'd tape our souls to the telegraph poles if it meant that we were paid attention
and you can take my hand or ruin plans
and fly your car deep into the ocean, love.

I don't know if I like you or i like him or her or them and you're stealing Centrelink
I don't know if I like you or I like him or her or them and you're stealing centrelink.

We coulda made it if we ran the way
if we ran away
I never liked who this city made of you and me
and the credit cards are snapping and i feel the end is coming
and I'd rather sleep than fly
I really tried.

Here's your sad song, love.
Track Name: Sober Street
I got every light on in my house
the sub-zero temperatures are proving too much for my little hands
finicky and tremble, my family's not here no more
and even if they were I'd probably hang out with myself

I'm sitting in my parent's room now
cos it's the warmest place in this doulbe-bricked house
and I still don't know how to maintain a fire
im sick of bringing things to life and killing them shortly after

I know I can call
but sometimes I don't think you want to speak to me at all
I get it, oh I get it
my mistakes became your memories.

You didn't have it in you
to say I was right
you saw the pain and ran away
when you realised I stood up too high
and I don't care what you say, I'm worthy
But my head is spinning
and this train won't be slowing down
slowing down.

My mistakes became your memories.
