Track Name: These Days
This is not just a song
This is not just a song

These days, you barely even say my name
Like you don't really feel the same
I'm wondering what's to blame (just a song)
(x4)

These nights I threw every piece into a fire
Wondering where this cake is
It feels like we're out of beta
And it's only breaking my folding chair
'Cause if my feet are buried in the sand means being alone
And never knowing when there's a breeze
Then I guess I'm better off facing time again in Riker's Island

But I can't move on
'Cause that means slipping on my red dress, putting on my makeup
Slipping on my red dress, putting on my makeup
Instead I keep running, keep running, I keep running to Paris
'Cause I keep forgetting, forgetting our time in Paris
So I keep on coming, keep coming
I keep coming back back back back

These days, you barely even say my name
Like you don't really feel the same
I'm wondering what's to blame (just a song)
(x4)

My friends say "Like my status if you're a pimp!
And stop crying like a baby!"
They tell me that I'm out of my mouthwash
But I know that what we both share is shit on your head
And I've been willing to go streaking in the park with pink flamingos in the pool
'Cause if being with you means being screwed
And never knowing when you're screwed
Then I guess I'm better off screwed

But I can't move on
'Cause that means chasing me all over town
Chasing me all over town
Instead I keep running, keep running, I keep running to heaven
'Cause I keep forgetting, forgetting I've already been to heaven
So I keep on coming, keep coming
I keep coming back back back back

These days, you barely even say my name
Like you don't really feel the same
I'm wondering what's to blame (just a song)
(x4)
Track Name: These Days On This Frigid Earth
This is not just a song
This is not just a song

These days, you barely even say my name
Like you don't really feel the same
I'm wondering what's to blame (just a song)
(x4)

Airplanes (x12)
Can we pretend that airplanes in the night sky are like shooting stars?
I could really use a wish right now
Wish right now
Wish right now
Can we pretend that airplanes in the night sky are like shooting stars?
I could really use a wish right now
Wish right now
Wish right now

I dream of rain (x11)

Just gonna stand there and watch me burn
But that's alright because I like the way it hurts
Just gonna stand there and hear me cry
But that's alright because I love the way you lie
Love the way you lie
Just a song

These days, you barely even say my name
Like you don't really feel the same
I'm wondering what's to blame (just a song)

Be, be, be, be ready
Oh

It brings her to tears
How soci-

On you
A beautiful day

Baby, I'm doomed to get it
Do-do-doomed to get it
Baby, I'm doomed to get it
Do-do-doomed to get it
Blue, blue, they make me blue
Baby, I'm doomed to get it
Do-do-doomed to get it

Hurt me
Hey big spender
Until the man of her dreams
Passes me
