Drank my weight in water Pretended I was no one’s daughter Followed every freeway out of town Drove the desert at night Through gusts that truckers refuse to fight Slap myself awake with the windows down Wind chill and sweat Wet shirt and sleeves If you came to make peace, You oughta leave Caught a lifetime of sleep Kept having dreams of drowning Barely out bed, I straight my sheets Taught myself good habits Where were you when all this happened? Routinized my life so my mind’s free Measure the grounds The kettle screams If you came to make peace You oughta leave Lost you like a locket Shouldn’t have left it in my pocket Taking every pain to track it down Scan the sand with flashlights We’ll search this beach if takes all night Sooner drown myself than let you down Fragile little chain Inscribed for me If you came to make peace You oughta leave If you came to make peace You oughta leave

I’ve got a middle kid relationship to refills Misbelieve in quantum cherry coke Worried since before I knew what worrying was for And if you want some, I’ve got more I’ve been down, but I’m up right now Cavities fill my mouth I’ve been down, but I’m up right now I’m alright right now Riddled with insidious predictions Waiting for the other shoe to drop Seems like scarcity Has left her marks all over me She always said that nothing’s free I’ve been down, but I’m up right now Let me try this out I’ve been down, but I’m up right now I’m alright right now Sit in the sun with a bottle of beer Bike upside down while I oil the gears Here’s to the year I stopped trying to steer Now I’ve been down, but I’m up right now Let me ride this out I’ve been down, but I’m up right now I’m alright right now Better than summer Bummer you missed out

Nothing is as formal as doorbell Or as frightening as an unexpected call Everyone’s got stories that they don’t tell Family portraits taken at the mall Runaway family pets White built-in cabinets I was born a major chord Learned how to drive before you taught me If you didn’t ask, I didn’t lie Pull the car in till you hit the laundry Boxes from our old house piled high Breathe in dishwasher’s scent Parked out by the dryer vent I was born a major chord Lost the last few messages your wrote me I read the few I have on lonely nights Living sometimes feels like something’s got me Hands behind my back, receiving rights I should have died a million times, I should have died I should have died a million times, but I got life I was born to play these chords
