about

This official recording is a long time coming (about 2 years or so, in fact). Enjoy this sicky sweet song of the past! It was meant to be on Points but i just never got around to a proper recording. Personally i'm glad, because i had reason to make this stellar edition. :)

lyrics

strawberries rotting in the fridge
i said that id take care of it
an unseen hand has vanished them
the space it left disorients

who am i to chase the feeling
of fulfillment you could bring me
solo cups of sour wine
sage, rosemary, all your time

you’ve talked me up youve talked me down
hell we’ve been talking all around
the reasons why i am shaking
if there was a way dont you know id have tried
-
i tried
to make it out
love letters in the sugar
haphazard and obtuse i am
a worthy gift
all the sin and rage in me
laid it out and signed with Xs
with practice ill get better at this
-
strawberries and lemonade
and vodka in the home id made
in foreign house with tipsy head
i still see you in my bed

you hold my face you say my name
even when youre miles away
you said you saw colors you’d never seen
id lick it clean but its too sweet oh i tried
-
i tried
to make it out
love letters in the sugar
haphazard and obtuse i am
a worthy gift
all the sin and rage in me
laid it out and signed with Xs
with practice ill get better at this
-
the weight of less hair on my head
the place you take up in my bed
the dotted silhouette where you rest
and im a chalk outline at best
-
i tried
to make it out
love letters in the sugar
haphazard and obtuse i am
a worthy gift
all the sin and rage in me
laid it out and signed with Xs
with practice ill get better at this
-
strawberries rotting in the fridge
i said that id take care of it
but thinking now that was days ago
where does all the sweet time go
