"Dust Me Off" as written by Kianna Alarid, Neely Jenkins, Jamie L Williams, Derek Pressnall and Nicholas White....
Sometimes I don't feel alright

Keeps me shaking, up all night

And there's nothing I can do

But I want to talk to you

This shit's making me feel bad

I'm so sick of feeling sad

Why can't I shake this mess?

Keeps on running through my head

I can't get out of bed

Stomache's sick, dizzy head

Singing helps alright,

But I been singing all night

Trying to open up my eyes

Take some time to realize

Sometimes shit won't feel alright

Got to remember to fight

Off the darkness that comes in,

Sometimes.

Turn that sorrow into something that feels right

You're a true friend I can count on, when I'm blue

You pull me up, you dust me off, you pull me through.

Sometimes looks aren't on my side

Keeps me shaking, up all night

And there's nothing I can do

But I want to talk to you

This shit's making me feel bad

I'm so sick of feeling sad

Why can't I shake this mess?

Always running through my head

Now I can't get out of bed

Stomache's sick, dizzy head

Singing helps alright,

But I been singing all night

Try to open up my eyes

Take some time to realize

Sometimes shit won't feel alright

Got to remember to fight

Off the darkness that creeps in,

Sometimes.

And turn that sadness into something that feels right

Cause you're a true friend I can count on, when I'm blue

You pull me up, you dust me off, you pull me through.

You're my love

(wha-ah-ah-oh)

Yeah, you're my love

(wha-ah-ah-oh)

Its true you're my love

(wha-ah-ah-oh)

Darling, it's true

(Doo-doo-doo-doo)

    Classic Tilly; simple love song.

    General CommentI like this one, probably my favorite off the new album. I don't feel like anything on "o" is as gorgeous as their old stuff, though, and it makes me sad.

    My Interpretationthis song makes me think of both friendship and love.
    it seems like a love song, but also one about a best friend.
    basically anyone who can make you feel better when you're down, whether you're into them or not.
