im sleeping
to give my head a rest
i am so sick of these arguments

im once again im on my own
just need some time to myself
or i'll explode

(chorus)
i know that this is all my fault
and one day
i will get it right
but for now
i sit here and remind myself that everything
will be okay

your letter
written on a napkin
sits on my nightstand
and there is

this is the last time
that i will lie to you
this is goodbye

(chorus)2x

okay
okay

    General CommentCheese and Rice (jesus christ). Finch can never go wrong with a song. Me, being one of the first people to know about them in my city, I love them and spread their music around as much as I can. This is a great song and amazing acoustic.
