Lyrics

Now Think This Over Alone

Written By: Erik Nickerson/Ethan Marunas

Now think this over alone
Now think this over alone

How often do you raise our violent secret?
One that could help and and hurt at the same time
Were it exposed to the air like a red wine
Letting it breathe

How often have I wished I were better suited?
To house and clothe you
Give you fine things like jewels
A house with a pool

A life so full and free from want and care
But I can't, so what
Security is a dirty word
Only I may keep you safe
Only love may keep you safe

A heart is broken
Then a heart is mended
If you woud just leave him, I'd be
So complete and he'd be staggering
With only his cash and a great sadness

Having no one to share
(his love laid bare)
You'd be poor but at least in love
You'd be poor but at least you'd be in love
You'd be poor but at least you'd be in love
You'd be poor but at least you'd be in love

Hating You Is Strange

Written By: Erik Nickerson, Ethan Marunas

you wave bye bye
from over your shoulder
but the gesture is fake
cuz you always sleep over

I wait for her on a bed of grass
these stains on my jeans
will never wash away
and there's a mark on my left breast
that's red and obvious

I wanna ruin her
like I wanna dance
but the beat is strong enough
to move the toughest man

I don't wanna feel this way
hating you is strange
but your chain gang is pulling me

and you wave bye bye
from over your shoulder
but the gesture is fake
cuz you always sleep over

my mamma said
i should ditch on out
should leave the things that have
already left you
but there's a point she doesn't get
i'm addicted to her touch

try to hold on to her
with an iron grip
but the tighter hold will yield
more lashes from her whip

I don't wanna feel this way
hating you is strange
but your chain gang is pulling me

and you wave bye bye
from over your shoulder
but the gesture is fake
cuz you always sleep over
you have your cake
and you eat it right as i am leaving
this place, a mistake
but doubting you is always treason

oh it's saccharine
oh it's saccharine
the taste as thin as your devotion

oh it's saccharine
oh it's saccharine
the taste as thin as your devotion
