lyrics/music by L.M. Best

lyrics

Heat rising to my face, disgrace
Too much to lose in this sweet embrace
Maintain the distance, while keeping up the pace
You don’t understand how much you’ve misplaced

I wanted to get lost in you
But lost was never found
You’re running to try to catch up to me
But I’m running out of time before I hit the ground

My solution for sensitivity
Lies in my nihilistic tendencies
If I don’t believe in you
Then you can’t believe in me

I’m still getting used to living in my own skin
Still trying on my soul for size, and I better get a fit before I let you in

I’m lying through my teeth and kissing away my lies
Every smile is just a smirk in disguise
Getting set to play the victim, getting you to sympathize
Before you realize, before I compromise

My solution for sensitivity
Lies in my nihilistic tendencies
If I don’t believe in you
Then you can’t believe in me

I wanted you to seize me, tease me, leave me
Break me, taste me, to please just complicate me

So I can beg for forgiveness true
While I know you know I know the blame’s on you
It’s a liar’s game where you think you know the truth
About everything I made you put me through

My solution for sensitivity
Lies in my nihilistic tendencies
If I don’t believe in you
Then you can’t believe in me

If I don’t believe in you
Then you can’t believe in me
