false highs & true lows,
the only one you should ever care about
is the only one who knows

yeah i realize you need this,
that it’s just part of your journey
but that never meant i had to sit here and watch it
maybe i told you ‘go ahead’
maybe i told you i was okay with it
that i would wait here and watch you burn bright
maybe i thought you wouldn’t
i always knew you might

this is love baby
this is the way my words roll
these are my feels
and this is how it heals

content to roam in your light
i won’t deny it felt right
i’m more than a little susceptible to fright
my home is the night
i kept waiting for you to bite
all i wanted was flight

false highs & true lows
it’s not my style to take it to blows
i’ll walk where the wildflower grows
then i’ll float where the river goes

false highs & true lows
it’s not my style to take it to blows
i’ll walk where a wildflower grows
then i’ll float where the river goes
the river goes

this is love baby
this is the way my words roll
these are my feels
and this is how it heals

false highs & true lows,
the only one you should ever care about
is the only one who knows

still out there, still out of reach
dug in, dug in deep
wetted down for weeks & weeks
but the storms just wouldn’t breach

darkness followed by depression
like a coloring book’s way of confession
nannies & crooks, a weekly obsession
do your best to repress the effects of repression

real or fake, what if the give don’t take
rinse repeat for a fix won’t break
love, passion, true romance
more than our fair share left to chance

what if it’s all a ruse
what have you got left to lose
was it up to us to choose
is it something new to prove

big blue eyes with an eccentric streak
back in the day when they used to speak
before the silly quirks became such dangerous freaks
a heart wide open and the truth it seeks

real or fake, what if the give don’t take
rinse repeat for a fix won’t break
love, passion, true romance
more than our fair share left to chance

what if it’s all a ruse
what have you got left to lose
was it up to us to choose
is it something new to prove

radio presets
i try to silence these expectations
but they pound my mind with revelations
and in this deafening contemplation
i feel the inexorable desperation
of hearts drenched by dehydration
in the romantic’s trench of trepidation
wherein lies the subtle stench of reckless stagnation

passion in moderation?
it’s never been my inspiration
plus i thought that with enough mutual adoration
maybe a spark could light our navigation
chalk it up to my insatiably experimental imagination
or my tenaciously detrimental determination
either way it’s one of those rainy days
plenty of seeds but no germination
and none of the presets fit

so i tune to different stations
trying to better define my latest hesitations
tap my leg to their beating flagellations
and drive blindly to only one
of two possible destinations

“i’ve been looking at you too much from the outside, from the outside…”
