we did that thing
we were young and it was funny

Track Name: i saw a ghost
well i saw a ghost and i was crying in your arms
connecting syllables into words
i didn't know i was that strong
you said that i'd be fine and i'd dream it all away
but i'm not if i was ready
for that change

well i saw a ghost in my reflection
she was telling me to breathe
but i've been chocking all along
and it's a funny thing when you can't see yourself
staring hopelessly for hours
when there's nothing left but a ghost
you used to know

and i see galaxies
in everyone but me
and it's been days since i've not cried
and i'm learning not to try
and i'm clinging on to what i used to be
but there's no use even lying
no use even trying anymore

well i saw a ghost in the corner of my room
playing solitaire and wearing cheap perfume
she gave me a grin and i started to cry
cause for the first time in a long time
i didn't have to try anymore

and i saw galaxies
inside of me
and it's been days since i've not cried
but i'm learning not to try
and i'm letting go of what i used to be
cause there's no use even lying
no use even trying anymore

i saw a ghost
standing in my doorway
wearing a big teeshirt
she said she couldn't stay
but she'd write twice a week
and think about me everyday
and for the first time in a long time
i think i'll be ok
Track Name: underground
i woke up quickly
i saw your face
but it had changed
it kind of scared me
but i brushed it off then brushed my teeth

i tied my shoes tight
i never learned to tie them right
and you stayed with me
i couldn't shake you from my feet

and it gets harder
and everything is slowing down
and it gets harder
till i can barely make a sound

so i write a letter to the ground
and hope i won't
come back around
and now there's dirt on my sleeves
i hope you know that you were mean

i had a melt down
i think its the fourth one this week
i just feel let down
i hope that doesn't make me weak

and i'm just tired
and i'm not getting
any sleep you know
so hold me darling
and tell me that you hate me so

so i write a letter to the ground
and hope i won't
come back around
and now there's dirt on my sleeves
i hope you know that you were mean

so i write a letter to the ground
and hope i won't
come back around
and now there's dirt on my sleeves
i hope you know that you were mean

i woke up quickly
i saw your face
but it had changed
it kind of scared me
but i brushed it off then brushed my teeth
