Lyrics

OK Well

Written By: Anne Marie Della Morte

I guess Ill laugh until im tired
it never stopped you know
the butterflies you give me like a
stomach punching blow.

You never meant
for it to be this way
but before me you must always go
and it cant be the same.

Please pull in I miss you
I want the rumble in my street
of a beaten engine
sitting idle I could greet

Ok, well
Alright
Ill take a heavy handed hurt
but my mind
it still fights
the thought of you in love
with her.

And thats why I cant sleep
or get myself to smile.

Anhedonia

Written By: Anne Marie della Morte


I've been here before
and it's not a bad place
they're worse places to be.

I've seen this before
and its not the worst case
don't mean much to me.

Across the Borderline.

Dys-the-ni-a,
I ache
caught up on a bad day
couldn't feel much at all.

An-he-do-ni-a,
you make
every color so grey.
I'm a wet paper-doll.

Across the Borderline.

Tomorrow

Written By: Anne Marie della Morte


Something felt right about
all of the mess
when we slept
Nothing feels right and
it’s all that i have since you left

and I don’t know where I’m off to
but it’s all the same to you
and I’ve no one to belong to
anymore

what do I sing when
I can't even think
cos its aching
well i know there’s a song in here
all about you
but its breaking
and I don’t know where I‘m off to
but it’s all the same to you
and I’ve no one to belong to
anymore

see you tomorrow

Rockin Horse

Written By: Anne Marie della Morte

It's not a bad thing
when it ends
most of
everything is means to end
but a sad love's
one that could not run its course
had no time to reinforce
back and forth just like a rocking horse

it's such a sad love
you gave in
I loved
all the words you said to pretend
but I mean it
when I say that you can call
Instead you're drinking alcohol
fumbling with the meaning of it all

Even Adam

Written By: Anne Marie della Morte


Where would I go
if you weren’t here by me
I’d go as high as you know
just to touch your toes
Would it feel like
a frustrating mess
Would it feel like
a full straight and miss

Well, even Adam said
we could get ahead
catch a bus to where the sun rises
instead.

For as long as I’ve known
you were everything to me
and if you care to go there
tell me honestly
Because it feels like
a frustrating mess
and it feels like
a full straight and miss

Well, even Adam said
we could get ahead
catch a bus to where the sun rises
instead.

I really want to stay with you tonight
there’s no push or shove maybe we wouldn’t have to fight
take it fast or slow in between when it all feels fine
we’ll feel much better in the meantime
i'd really like to stay with you awhile
smoke the day away second-handed reconcile
shut the lights the house and we can steal away for now
let them figure it out somehow
