"Nerve" as written by and Devon Portielje Conner Molander....
There's a lot of nothing in the words, I know
But I keep on talking cause it feels like home.
It feels alright to be growing old,
But growing old is just letting go.
And it's just the reason I needed to leave this place,
I took to home, wanted to run away.
I had a different image on my mind,
This is the change that happens all the time.

And it comes as no surprise, it's like, oh
And I just don't know what you're doing wrong, yeah.
Wrong, wrong, man, you've got a lot of nerve.
And I just don't know what you're doing wrong, yeah.
Wrong, wrong, man, you've got a lot of nerve.

How come all my vices always breathe relief,
But a sip of gin saves an hour of speech
And yeah, it's fickle and it feels so cheap,
But I can rest and I can feel at ease.
Yes, my friends don't know, they're happy just listenin'
I'm at a loss cause I'm livin' it
It's not to say that I'm givin' in,
It's just that this is how it's always been

And it comes as no surprise, it's like, oh
And I just don't know what you're doing wrong, yeah.
Wrong, wrong, man, you've got a lot of nerve.
And I just don't know what you're doing wrong, yeah.
Wrong, wrong, man, you've got a lot of nerve.

I can't melt all of my worries in nothing, no
And I, I, I would.
And I keep trying but I always get let down, somehow
Man, you've got a lot of nerve.

    General Commentthere's a lot of nothing in the words i know
    but i keep on talking 'cause it feels like home
    feels alright to be growing old
    but growing old is just letting go
    and it's just the reason i needed to leave this place
    HAD THE WHOLE MORNING TO RUN AWAY
    i had a different image on my mind
    IT'S JUST IT CHANGES ALWAYS, ALL THE TIME

    and it comes as no surprise it's like

    i just don't know what you're doing wrong
    man you've got a lot of nerve

    how come all my vices always BREED relief
    when a sip of gin saves an hour of speech?
    and yeh it's fickle and it feels so cheap
    but i can rest and i can feel at ease
    it's my friends DON'T KNOW THE HALF they're just listening
    i'm at a loss 'cause i'm living it
    that's not to say that i'm giving it
    it's just that this is how it's always been

    and it comes as no surprise it's like

    i just don't know what you're doing wrong
    man you've got a lot of nerve

    i can't melt all of my worries to nothing
    and i would
    i keep trying but i always get let down
    somehow

    man you've got a lot of nerve
