Recorded April 2017


It all started when I was 14
When I picked up this guitar
First i would meet them through the scene
And then it was the bars

They were nothing but trouble
Bad, with cool tattoos
I was hitting a double
Run these bases home run blues

Spent my time always writing
In my notebook in high school
I would sneak into their houses
Drinking like a fool

Not much has changed since then
Still getting in trouble
Still falling for the wrong ones
When they treat me cruel

I don’t wanna get drunk anymore
And waste my time evening the score
I’ve been in this place before
I’m gonna walk right out that door
I don’t wanna spill my guts
But I can’t do this anymore
Will you let me speak this time?
Can you please let me have the floor?
I don't wanna do this anymore

15 years of all this bullshit
And now I'm 29
“Happy birthday”, I am foolish
And you came right on time

Yet they still wanna see me
Despite my indifference
Why don't you take it or leave it?
What's the difference?

Why can't I walk away
At the first sight of danger?
What makes me wanna stay?
I wish we were strangers

I don’t wanna get high anymore
And waste my time evening the score
I’ve been in the place before
I’m gonna walk right out that door
This pain is too much to endure
I know i’ll find a different girl
I tried to walk away before
But you just lure me in for more

Why don't let me be
and wallow in all my hypocrisy?
What the fuck is wrong with you and me?
What do you see in me?
Why can't I just leave?
I wear my heart on my sleeve
I’ll just roll my eyes
And you will sigh:
“I'll see you Friday night"
Baby, I just don’t wanna fight
