Hey, I can smell the cut grass
When I'm digging up your past
It's always this time of year when I hate you the most

'Love' is such a fucked word
A million suns and just one Earth
It's always so nice to think that you're going to die alone

Roll your eyes at the tough bits
Try to change but do nothing
I won't sleep if it's your bed
Stay up, talk with me instead
"I think you might've saved my life"
"Oh, that's sweet. It's late. I'm pretty tired"

A friend in love with you
A shitty mess to drag through
Split your lip, hate everyone

But we can all throw stones
A never ending walk home
It's always so hard to forget when you never ever want to

Roll your eyes at the tough bits
Try to change but do nothing
I won't sleep if it's your bed
Stay up, talk with me instead
"I think you might've saved my life"
"Oh, that's sweet. It's late. I'm pretty tired"

You keep saying "you don't know how this feels"
Don't lie to me

Roll your eyes at the tough bits
Try to change but do nothing
I won't sleep if it's your bed
Stay up, talk with me instead
"I think you might've saved my life"
"Oh, that's sweet. It's late. I'm pretty tired"

    Song Meaning"Hey! I can smell the cut grass."
    "You know how when September rolls around and the weather picks up and people start cutting their lawns and the smell of the cut grass floats into your house and takes you right back to summers in your youth and you go get your guitar and sit on your bed with the window open and the cut grass smell still floating in and you get that little rush in your chest and you write a song about all of it? Me too. That's 'Roll Ur Eyes'. Little side note: you have no idea how much time was spent labouring over whether we should stylise the title 'Roll Your Eyes' or 'Roll Ur Eyes'. 'Roll Ur Eyes won', obviously, but I can't remember why."
