lyrics

After the storm breaks,
fluorescence radiates off
skin overflowing with underexposure.

This was a shit day.
Can’t power through the haze,
I’m tired of waiting for it to be over.

Let’s go back to Melbourne.
We can start over because
Mistakes get forgotten
Dreams can be remembered.

After your heart breaks,
ears ring and colors fade
and everyone smiling feels like an intruder,

And you’re drawn
to the word that came out wrong
as if all along you weren’t ignoring the truth:
you’re a loser.

Let’s go back to Melbourne.
We can start over because
Mistakes get forgotten
Dreams can be remembered.

So go on.
Listen to some stupid song
and pretend to sing along,
and try remembering
what I’d think was smart when I was young,
Where my memory makes me strong
But the record shows me dumb
and breaking everything.
Oh, I paid the price for being wrong.
I’m alone in this mess and a blizzard’s coming on.
I’m alone in this mess and a blizzard’s coming on.

Go back to Melbourne.
We can start over.
Mistakes get forgotten.
Dreams get remembered.
