Track Name: Jesus Candles
I’ve been beating the marks on my neck
To keep pieces of you for the world
Come on yellow, bring the dark blue back
I’m not a lonely girl

Still my legs don’t look quite the same
When I walk you to your car
Let me catch my breath dear what a shame
We’re spending this time apart

So are we just fucking, or is this something lovely?
Or maybe this is heaven, as good as it gets.
Sink back in this with me

Where it feels like home not just a gamble
And it smells like gin and condom wrappers
And the only light comes from jesus candles
Baby you left my faith in shambles
We don’t believe
But you still scream
Oh my God

I guess I’ll roll another cigarette
Have a coffee while I wait up
The marks left there on the side of my neck
Are almost gone

Still my legs don’t look quite the same
When I walk you to your car
Let me catch my breath dear what a shame
We’re spending this time apart

So are we just fucking, or is this something lovely?
Or maybe this is heaven, as good as it gets.
Sink back in this with me

Where it feels like home not just a gamble
And it smells like gin and condom wrappers
And the only light comes from jesus candles
Baby you left my faith in shambles
We don’t believe
But you still scream
Oh my God
Track Name: Echoes
He said “no I don’t believe in god”
he said “girl, my family’s broken
If I’m going to hell, They’ll be right there with me
but my brother, well he’s gone

And the night he said “hey kid I miss you so much”
I didn’t pick up the phone
And it’s burned in my head, everything I never told him
I’d do it different if I had known

So I bite my tongue
until the blood starts to run
He’ll never know.
As the sun goes down
I wonder if he’s out there
but I’ll never know no no

It echoes echoes echoes, but thinking doesn’t help
It echoes echoes echoes, I think I lost myself

He said “girl, the line’s been crossed
baby and I cross my heart
If I tell you those secrets were nothing to me.
would you sit back, smile, pretend, agree?

Got too personal since the moment I met you
but I guess it’s good to talk
storing stories away in my mind from those times
since the day I lost my rock

So I bite my tongue
until the blood starts to run
He’ll never know.
As the sun goes down
I wonder if he’s out there
but I’ll never know no no

It echoes echoes echoes, but thinking doesn’t help
It echoes echoes echoes, I think I lost myself

maybe there’s something in losing so much
Maybe he figured it out
Maybe I lost so much of me
I'll never find myself

So I bite my tongue
until the blood starts to run
He’ll never know.
As the sun goes down
I wonder if he’s out there
but I’ll never know no no

It echoes echoes echoes, but thinking doesn’t help
It echoes echoes echoes, I think I lost myself
Track Name: Cocaine
I’ll write you love notes with my nails on your shoulder blades
If you’ll just listen, press your ears against into hipbones, babe
Cause I only see you with my fingertips and tongue

This is our golden ticket into the good life
What is it without our vices
Fast money, hard drugs and liquor
What more do you need?

And you can blame it on the cocaine
Cause bad bitches be crazy
I don’t even know your name baby,
Fast money, hard drugs and liquor
What more do you need?

I’ll rescue you from the rhythm of your every day
Let’s use our bodies to escape what we were raised for
Wasted may not get us far enough

And you can blame it on the cocaine
Cause bad bitches be crazy
I don’t even know your name baby,
Fast money, hard drugs and liquor
What more do you need?
