I can't say that I mind the butterflies that slice these holes right through my gut when you're around, I'll bleed out.
Can I please sleep on your couch? I just can't bear the thought of leaving your house tonight.
I don't wanna drive down Dunkirk.
So I'll just pretend that I can't find my keys, I hope you'll miss me when you're gone.
So I'll write another pathetic song about my goddamned selfish feelings.
I never knew that the L train ride from Loyola to O'Hare could feel like years, but here I am.
So I think I'll just miss my plane because all I want in the world is to stay right next to you.
I don't wanna leave this city.
I can still feel the wind coming off Lake Michigan, place your hand in mine and tell me things will be just fine.
I'll sing about how you're the one thing in my life that makes me feel good enough to be more than just a fuck up.
I never knew I could love someone this much.
