Should I let the words flow from my mouth right down your street
I hope you’ll hear me
Cause if I feel this low again I’ll scrape the deep end
But maybe then I’ll stop pretending
Maybe then I’ll stop pretending

That things just felt so cancerous for a while
I’m in the in-between
Like New Buffalo and Oak Street
I hope the thought of me keeps you away from the beach
Cause I don’t care if you can’t sleep
No, I don’t care if you can’t sleep
Don’t think I care if you can’t sleep

Stay away from the lake
Cause if you see me, I’ll be skipping memories I swore I’d keep with me
In constant hopes that they’ll erode just like the glass we’d take home
left to rot in a window well
they’re left to rot in your window well

Some things just felt so cancerous for a while
I’m in the in-between
Like New Buffalo and Oak Street
I hope the thought of me keeps you away from the beach
Cause I don’t care if you can’t sleep
No, I don’t care if you can’t sleep

When I close my eyes
I feel your summer skin
It pulls me apart and rips me open
When I close my eyes
I feel the warmth of the sun
It takes me back where I was where my youth was stolen
