lyrics

SALTWATER PERFUME
I'm tired of feeling rejected.
I'm tired of feeling dejected.
Feelings are always defective.
You've no clue how deeply I'm affected.

A night alone. It's all the same.
A night alone. Another game.
But maybe I am the one to blame,
For my eager leap into the flames.

(Chorus)
See the sparkle fade from my eyes.
Another no; a new goodbye.
I'll backpack solo toward my demise,
The dirt on my shoes dusted with whys.

I'll shield you from my heavy gloom,
My dislikes, fears, my messy room,
The apples of my cheeks coated with the fumes,
Of saltwater perfume.

I'll never be number one.
What do I deserve after all I've done?
Could all my love ever be enough?
To excuse the darkness with which I'm stuck?

I've written too many fairytales
about how love always prevails.
My imagination's hurt me now.
What's the secret to love that never fails?

(Chorus)

Can I give you all I am?
Can you sense my fear as I stand:
A lovesick girl with an outstretched hand,
An empty palm's wait for romance?

(Chorus)
