LYRICS

Chaos

He walks through the night, like he owns the street around him
King of all in sight, worshipped by the ones who crowned him
In our velvet lives, we live for tuxedo evenings
Painted lips and eyes, words that don't have real meanings
When it's late, we will make our escape
Shadows under streetlights flicker
World around us smells of liquor
But I get drunk on summer air, his fingers linger in my hair
Calm no matter how you play us, perfect harmony in chaos
He's a broken man, but I adore the pieces of him
'Cause I understand, it takes a lot of guts to love him
Through his days, I'm the one thing that stays
Shadows under streetlights flicker
Ground beneath us smells of liquor
But I get drunk on city air, the way he drowns me in his stare
Everybody says we're star-crossed, but they're just the voice of chaos
He bites my lip and makes me promise
That I'll always keep him honest
If we lose, we'll never stay lost
We're just stronger when there's chaos

You Will Too

I'm at the edge of the water again
Cutting my feet on the rocks and the sand
Sometimes I bleed just to feel something
And that's what it's like with you
I was almost asleep when you called
Craving the feeling of feeling nothing at all
And you can keep telling me I'm building a wall
But it's not gonna help you break through
If you haven't figured out by now
My favorite company is when no one's around
And I've learned that it's easier to walk away
Before they do, and you will too
You think you're god's gift to the female race
'Cause you're not only in it for the thrill of the chase
But you're a self-centered ass with a handsome face
And there's nothing special about that
I don't care if you run me around
I live nearby and I work here in town
I got nowhere to be, so go ahead string this out
Karma's gonna get you back
If you haven't figured out by now
My favorite company is when no one's around
And I've learned that it's easier to walk away
Before they do, and you will too
Sometimes I feel so alone in a crowded room
That I pick up the phone and call a guy like you
My heart may be made of stone, but I'm not immune
To the way you make me want you
If you haven't figured out by now
My favorite company is when no one's around
And I've learned that it's easier to walk away
Before they do, and you will too
