Buttercups all around
In ampersands right where I found you
Crying your eyes out, losing the war

Shuffling slipper feet
Trying to hard not to sing but my smile cracks your surface
And you break into song

You poured all your soul into me
Left your toothbrush right next to my sink
From that moment forward
I knew I might love you too much

Fossils and rocks
Dusted on up by the dirt of cantankerous back roads
And an un-tuned guitar

You were a shimmer in my dark
A brief flicker and you were gone
Now I need you to come back, my doors still ajar

I poured myself into a drink
Caught your specter there just haunting my porch
Pleading, "You're better than this, you're better than this..."
"You're better than this, you're better than this..."

Now as my stomach's stitch travels up towards my chest
I feel close to death, but I'll never admit
That I'm better than that, and we're better than this


from Be In Love​/​Don't Die Alone, released November 10, 2016
