lyrics

Your boyfriend was dying right down through his bones
So I spent the night at your place
Mixing tarot and whiskey
Called you sugar cookie
After the paint stained your face

There’s always some dumb fucking thing to be done
If you are not sure you’re alive
Sprint through the crosswalk
With all the wrong lights up
Whistle with spears in your side

La da shut up and hold me
Shut up and hold me now
La da shut up and hold me
Shut up and hold me down

You drove yourself west to the state where I’m from
You swallow the fog when you nap
You text me from Texas
And say you’re well-rested
And oh yeah you’re not coming back

It’s Easter, it’s snowing, there’s bats in my house
I found them asleep upside down
So I gave them blankets
And they all said “thanks” then
They wept until I locked them out

La da shut up and hold me
Shut up and hold me now
La da shut up and hold me
Shut up and hold me down
