if you never bleed, you’re never gonna grow (the 1) 🌿 you drew stars around my scars but now i’m bleeding (cardigan) 🌿 you knew it still hurts underneath my scars (hoax)
it would’ve been fun if you would’ve been the one (the 1) 🌿 chase two girls, lose the one (cardigan)
when you are young, they assume you know nothing (cardigan) 🌿 i’m only 17, i don’t know anything (betty)
if i’m on fire you’ll be made of ashes too (my tears ricochet) 🌿 i’m a fire and i’ll keep your brittle heart warm (peace) 🌿 i am ash from your fire (hoax)
hush, when no one is around, my dear (mirrorball) 🌿 i would die for you in secret (peace)
so much for summer love (august) 🌿 would you trust me if i told you it was just a summer thing? (betty)
pulled the car off the road to the lookout (this is me trying) 🌿 stood on the cliffside screaming (hoax) 🌿 i bathe in cliffside pools (the lakes)
but i’m here in your doorway (this is me trying) 🌿 i’m here on your doorstep (betty)
you’re a flashback in a film reel (this is me trying) 🌿 i think i’ve seen this film before (exile) 🌿 you knew the hero died so what’s the movie for? (hoax)
look at this godforsaken mess that you made me (illicit affairs) 🌿 you made her like that (mad woman)
for you i would ruin myself a million little times (illicit affairs) 🌿 and when i break it’s in a million pieces (mirrorball)
they strike to kill and you know i will (mad woman) 🌿 my words shoot to kill when i’m mad (this is me trying)
you took everything from me (mad woman) 🌿 you hear my stolen lullabies (my tears ricochet)
family that i chose now that i see your brother as my brother (peace) 🌿 rosé flowing with your chosen family (the 1)
this has frozen my ground (hoax) 🌿 a red rose grew up out of ice-frozen ground (the lakes)
is it romantic how all my elegies eulogize me? (the lakes) 🌿 if i’m dead to you why are you at the wake? (my tears ricochet)
burrowed under my skin in heart-stopping waves of hurt (the lakes) 🌿 if your cascade ocean wave blues come (peace)
