Minor Feelings Lyrics

How am I supposed to feel

when you're telling me that nothing in my life is real

When you throw your words and hide behind a plastic shield

I just sit and smile

 

Writing my own fairytales

Building forts between the sofa and the windowsill

Dreaming of the day I'm tall enough to save myself

But I was just a child

 

What it takes to recognize

Emotions that I try to hide

The more I keep them all inside

The more they bury me alive

 

All my life I've felt out of place

All my life I've been saving face

For all these minor feelings are majorly breaking me down

(Breaking me down)

 

All my life you took me for a fool

All my life you told me what to do

All these minor feelings are majorly getting to me now

Hold The Girl Lyrics

Reach inside and hold you close

I won't leave you on your own

Teach me the words I used to know

Yeah, I forgot 'em long ago

So hold the girl

Hold the girl

Hold the girl

Hold the girl

 

Hold that girl

Hold that girl

Hold that girl

 

Sometimes I get down with guilt

For the promises I've broken to my younger self

Moving on, maybe I never will

'Cause I left you spinning on the carousel

 

Been living without you

Been living without you

 

Reach inside and hold you close

I won't leave you on your own

Teach me the words I used to know

Yeah, I forgot them long ago

I wanna remember

She is me and I am her

So hold the girl

Hold the girl

 

(You gotta) Hold that girl

(You gotta) Hold that girl (Ooh)

(You gotta) Hold that girl

(You gotta)

 

Sometimes I just wanna run away

Leave behind that old me, start again

Then I'll remember who I'm really made of

And she's been hide-and-seeking, waiting all alone

 

Been living without you

Been living without you (Oh)

 

Reach inside and hold you close

I won't leave you on your own

Teach me the words I used to know

Yeah, I forgot them long ago

I wanna remember

She is me and I am her

So hold the girl

Hold the girl

 

Close to your heart

Never ever let her go (Never let you go)

They'll tell you to sit up, and shut up, and grow up

What the hell do they know?

'Cause the girl in your soul's singing on

And you owe her the world

 

So hold the girl

Hold the girl

 

Reach inside and hold you close

I won't leave you on your own

Teach me the words I used to know

Yeah, I forgot about them so long ago

 

Reach inside and hold you close

I won't leave you on your own

Teach me the words I used to know

Yeah, I forgot them long ago

I wanna remember

She is me and I am her

So hold the girl

 

Hold the girl

This Hell Lyrics

(Let's go, girls)

 

Saw a poster on the corner opposite the motel

Turns out I'm going to hell if I keep on being myself

Don't know what I did, but they seem pretty mad about it

God hates us? Alright then! Buckle up, at dawn we're riding

 

Walk a mile on these coals, busy cleansing my soul

Getting ready for the night

Damned for eternity, but you're coming with me

Into the afterlife

 

This hell is better with you

We're burning up together

Baby, that makes two

'Cause the Devil's wearing Prada

And loves a little drama, ooh-ooh

This hell is better with you

 

With you

With you

Oh, with you

This hell is better with you

 

Flame red carpet moment, posing for the paparazzi

Fuck what they did to Britney, to Lady Di and Whitney

Don't know why we're here, but might as well get down and dirty

That Satan's looking thirsty, not even he can hurt me

 

Walk a mile on these coals, busy cleansing my soul

Getting ready for the night

Damned for eternity, but you're coming with me

Into the afterlife (Wow, that's hot)

 

This hell is better with you

We're burning up together, baby, that makes two

'Cause the Devil's wearing Prada

And loves a little drama, ooh-ooh

This hell is better with you

This life gave us nothing to lose

We're going down together, got our ticket for two

'Cause the Devil's wearing Prada

And loves a little drama, ooh-ooh

This hell is better with you

 

With you

With you

Oh, with you

(This hell is better with you)

 

Got my invitation to eternal damnation

Get in line, pass the wine, bitch

We're going straight to hell

Got my invitation to eternal damnation

Get in line, pass the wine, bitch

We're going straight to hell

 

This hell is better with you

We're burning up together, baby, that makes two

'Cause the Devil's wearing Prada

And loves a little drama, ooh-ooh

This hell is better with you

 

This hell is better with you (I'm in this hell with you)

This hell is better with you (With you, with you)

This hell is better with you (Ooh)

(This hell is better with you)

Catch Me In The Air Lyrics

Hey there, little girl, don't you wanna see the world?

Don't be scared

Well, hey there, little world are you ready for this girl?

Do you dare?

Only took nine months and a lot of love

Carried all our dreams and she's ready now, oooh

Hey there, little girl, don't you wanna see the world (Now let's go!)

 

I ran away where clouds kiss the mountain peaks

I was afraid but you put the wings on me

Feet on the edge

Feet on the edge

 

So catch me in the air, the air, the air, the air, the air, the air

(Mama, look at me now)

Catch me in the air, the air, the air, the air, the air, the air

(Mama, look at me now, I'm flying, I'm flying)

 

Twenty years all alone, bound together to the phone

Was it fate?

Watched you decorating all the walls

Made a prison of our home

No escape

 

When you ran away where clouds kiss the mountain peaks

I was afraid but you left your wings on me

Feet on the edge

Feet on the edge

 

So catch me in the air, the air, the air, the air, the air, the air

(Mama, look at me now)

Catch me in the air, the air, the air, the air, the air, the air

(Mama, look at me now, I'm flying)

So catch me in the air, the air, the air, the air, the air, the air

The air

 

And they will never know

The fear of making a mistake

The risk you take, the pain you create

But mama look at us now

High above the clouds

Yeah, I hope that you're, hope that you're proud

(Air, air, air, air, air, air)

 

So catch me in the air (The air, the air, the air, the air, the air, the air)

The air (So catch me in the air, the air, the air, the air, the air, the air)

Mama, look at me now, I'm flying

(Air, the air, the air, the air, the air)

Mama, look at me now, I'm flying

The air, yeah (The air, the air, the air, the air, the air, the air)

Save each other in every way

Feel the fears as we float in the sea

Look at us now, way past the clouds that haunted your dreams

I hope that you're proud

Save each other in every way

Feel the fear as we float in the sea

Look at us now

Way past the clouds that haunted your dreams

I hope that you're proud

Forgiveness Lyrics

Just when I thought

I'd weathered the storm

Rain starts to pour

Those same old tears back on my face

No escape, ooh

 

Ripped out the page

Rewrote the play

I did away with heroes and villains

And old scores

From cold wars

 

But the pain isn't done

No, no, when battle is won

So I'm running in circles again

Reaching dead ends

I guess I'm not over it yet

 

'Cause I'm, losing my mind

Sometimes I blame you, sometimes I don't

Sometimes it flips, so fast I don't know

 

I'm looking for signs

For some kinda of highway to letting it go, but

Forgiveness is a winding road

 

Dead on my feet

Walking these streets

I swear that I've been here before

Each way I turn

Yeah, I never learn

 

I'm chasing blue skies

'Cause I only see clouds in my eyes

So I'm running in circles again

Reaching dead ends

I guess I'm not over it yet

 

'Cause I'm, losing my mind

Sometimes I blame you, sometimes I don't

Sometimes it flips, so fast I don't know

 

I'm looking for signs

For some kinda of highway to letting it go

But forgiveness is a winding road

Yeah, oh

 

I'm still looking for that highway

Wondering if I went the right way

But I ain't lost

 

'Cause I'll be alright

Sometimes I blame you, sometimes I don't

Yeah, I'm taking two steps back to go forward

 

I'm looking for signs

For some kinda of highway to letting it go

I'm out of luck, but I still got hope

Are we nearly there yet? God only knows

But forgiveness is a winding road

Holy (Til You Let Me Go) Lyrics

Heavenly, that was me

A vision, at seventeen

Loves to read, loves to dream

The college of Magdalene

 

You saw a light, starting to shine

Wanted it only for your eyes

Older and wise, God on your side

 

I was innocent when you said I was evil

I took your stones and I built a cathedral

 

Found my peace when I lost my religion

All these years I wished I was different

But oh, oh

Now I know

I'm holy 'til you let me go

 

Tried to pray the pain away

Just like you taught me

(But something had changed)

Came to shelter from the blame

But I left taking all the shame

 

You saw a light, starting to shine

Wanted it only for your eyes

Older and wise, God on your side

(I was the martyr who paid for your life)

 

I was innocent when you said I was evil

I took your stones and I built a cathedral

 

Found my peace when I lost my religion

All these years I wished I was different

But oh, oh

Now I know

I'm holy 'til you let me go

 

I'm holy 'til you let me go

I'm holy 'til you let me go

I'm holy 'til you let me go

I'm holy 'til you let me go

Your Age Lyrics

Not a secret, not a problem

Not a symptom or cure

Not a villain, not a mistake

Not in the eyes of God

Not a weakness, not a failure

Not a saviour, oh no

Not a secret, not a problem

 

I, I

(I am the number you can never divide

You crossed the line, multiplied the lies

I survived a social suicide)

 

I, I

(Decisions were not mine

You closed me off, a jail personified

I survived a social suicide)

 

'Cause now that I'm your age

I just can't imagine

Why did you do it?

What the hell were you thinking?

 

'Cause I'm not a secret

And I'm not a problem

Why did you it?

What the hell were you thinking?

 

'Cause now that I'm your age

'Cause now that I'm your age

'Cause now that I'm your age

'Cause now that I'm your age

 

You know, we all have a monster inside of us

But you, you fucked with my life

Imagining Lyrics

Could we be imagining

Could we be imagining

Could we be-

 

Wide awake

Didn't mean to lose my precious mind today (Mind today)

Sick to the waking of so far away (So far away)

I don't know if Mercury's in retrograde

Am I okay? Nah

 

I don't wanna get too close, shit gets complicated (Ah)

I don't wanna take it off, emotionally naked (Ah)

Really don't feel too good, fake it 'til you make it (Ah)

I don't wanna talk right now, got me agitated

 

I'm imagining

So tell me what the fuck is up? What's happening?

Right now my sanity is gone, it's vanishing

I know I do this to myself, it's damaging

I, I, I, I, I, I, I'm imagining

So tell me what the fuck is up? What's happening?

Right now my sanity is gone, it's vanishing

I know I do this to myself, it's damaging

I, I, I, I, I, I (Oh)

 

Could we be imagining?

I, I, I, I, I, I

 

My belly aches—lay, okay?

Suddenly I find it hard to concentrate, yeah

Struggling to recognize a side of me, uh

I just wanna short circuit the night away

Am I okay? Nah

 

I don't wanna get too close, shit gets complicated (Ah)

I don't wanna take it off, emotionally naked (Ah)

Really don't feel too good, fake it 'til you make it (Ah)

I don't wanna talk right now, got me agitated

 

I, I, I, I, I, I, I'm imagining

So tell me what the fuck is up? What's happening?

Right now my sanity is gone, it's vanishing

I know I do this to myself, it's damaging

I, I, I, I, I, I, I'm imagining

So tell me what the fuck is up? What's happening?

Right now my sanity is gone, it's vanishing

I know I do this to myself, it's damaging

I, I, I, I, I, I, I'm imagining

So tell me what the fuck is up? What's happening?

Right now my sanity is gone, it's vanishing

I know I do this to myself, it's damaging

 

Could we be imagining?

Could we be imagining?

Could we be imagining?

Could we be imagining?

Could we be imagining?

Could we be imagining?

Could we be imagining?

Could we be imagining?

Frankenstein Lyrics

Put me together

Thread a needle

So I'm like other people

Without all of the evil

 

I'm trying to be normal

But trauma is immortal

And none of this is your fault

 

Oh my God, this is so unbearable

Make it stop, this is more than medical

All I want is

To feel beautiful inside and out

 

You're the one that can save me from myself

Destruction, triple nine, I need your help

All I want is

To feel beautiful

 

Put me together one more time

Love me forever, fix me right

I can be your Frankenstein, Frankenstein

Put me together, make me better

Love me forever, hold me tight

I can be your Frankenstein, Frankenstein

 

I don't wanna be a monster anymore

I don't wanna be a monster

I don't wanna be a monster anymore

I don't wanna be a monster

I don't wanna be a monster anymore

I don't wanna be a monster

I don't wanna be a monster anymore

I don't wanna be a monster

 

I was doing fine

'Til I hit rock bottom

Opened up my problems

Watch the poison blossom

 

Oh my God, this is so unbearable

Make it stop, this is more than medical

All I want is

To feel beautiful inside and out

 

You're the one that can save me from myself

Destruction, triple nine, I need your help

All I want is

To feel beautiful

 

Put me together one more time

Love me forever, fix me right

I can be your Frankenstein, Frankenstein

Put me together, make me better

Love me forever, hold me tight

I can be your Frankenstein, Frankenstein

 

I don't wanna be a monster anymore

I don't wanna be a monster

I don't wanna be a monster anymore

I don't wanna be a monster

I don't wanna be a monster anymore

I don't wanna be a monster

I don't wanna be a monster anymore

I don't wanna be a monster

Hurricanes Lyrics

April showers finally making way for warmer weather

But yet I still feel the same

Doing yoga just to feel untethered, but my mind keeps

Ru-ru-ru-running away

 

Chasing hurricanes

'Cause I can't feel the rain

Second guess my pain

'Cause I've been walking around in chains

 

So won't you give me a sign if you're really there?

'Cause I've been lost inside waiting on a prayer

Until I find your door, until the wind blows north

I'm running, I'm running, running into hurricanes

 

Always wanted to be best at everything

Even when it brings out the worst in myself (Worst in myself)

So I create a storm and bury it deep, hiding the key

In plain sight just in case I need help, help

 

Chasing hurricanes

'Cause I can't feel the rain

 

So won't you give me a sign if you're really there?

'Cause I've been lost inside waiting on a prayer

Until I find your door, until the wind blows north

I'm running, I'm running, running into hurricanes

So won't you give me a ride? Be my getaway?

I'm not the girl I tried to be yesterday

Until I find your door, until the wind blows north

I'm running, I'm running, running into hurricanes

 

Oh, I'm in a cyclone, I'm spinning

Crashed through the floor

Don't give me heaven, I'm flying

Tearing down the doors of this city

Ooh, you know I'm running, I'm running

Running into hurricanes

 

So won't you give me a sign if you're really there?

'Cause I've been lost inside waiting on a prayer

Until I find your door, until the wind blows north

I'm running, I'm running, running into hurricanes

So won't you give me a ride? Be my getaway?

I'm not the girl I tried to be yesterday

Until I find your door, until the wind blows north

I'm running, I'm running, running into hurricanes

Send My Love To John Lyrics

Cross the border in the summer of '73

Left my mother to go after the American Dream

Ooh, threw away my name

Ooh, it's easier when it sounds the same

 

All I ever wanted was for you to have a better chance

Go to college, find a good girl that you take to a dance

Ooh, pictured you with her

Ooh, but that was never who you were

 

And I'm sorry for the things I've done

A misguided love to my only son

Trying to protect you but I guess I was wrong

So send my love, send my love to John

 

Saw the way the kids treated you everyday at school

I should've blamed them but instead I hid behind the Bible's rules

Ooh, prayed to God above

Ooh, but all you needed was my love

 

And I'm sorry for the things I've done

A misguided love to my only son

We had both had to leave our mothers to get the things we want

So send my love, send my love to John (Ooh)

Ooh, John

 

And I see that he takes care of you

From the food he makes, he's there for you

In all the ways I never was, ooh

 

And I'm sorry for the things I've done

A misguided love to my only son

But I love to see you happy

And right where you belong

So send my love

Oh, send my love

Send my love to John

Phantom Lyrics

Once upon a time

There was a girl, pleasing the world

Dying to be liked, looking for love

Wanting to trust

 

Stickers and scented gel pens

Give possessions

Get friends

Breaking off pieces, things started to change

I've been tryna find her since, she gave a little too much away

 

I don't wanna do this without you

I don't wanna do this if you're just a ghost in the night

I tried everything to fill up the void that you left me with

My phantom

 

Phantom

 

If I could talk to you, I'd tell you not to rush

You're good enough

You don't have to lose, what makes you you

Still got some growing to do

 

When did we get so estranged

Haunted by the way I've changed

Claiming back the pieces of me that I've lost

Reaching in and hoping you're still, waiting by the windowsill

I'd bring you back to us

 

I don't wanna do this without you

I don't wanna do this if you're just a ghost in the night

I tried everything to fill up the void that you left me with

My phantom

 

I was wrong to assume, I would ever outgrow you

I need you now, I need you close

How do you hold a ghost

Inner child, come back to me, I wanna tell you that I'm sorry

I'm sorry

 

I don't wanna do this without you

I don't wanna do this if you're just a ghost in the night

I tried everything to fill up the void that you left me with

My phantom

 

Don't wanna do this without you

Don't wanna do this if you're locked away in my mind

I tried everything to fill up the void that you left me with

My phantom

 

Phantom, phantom

Phantom, phantom

 

Once upon a time

There was a girl

Dying to be liked

Looking for love

 

I don't wanna do this without you

To Be Alive Lyrics

Flowers still look pretty when they're dying

Blue skies always there behind the rain, rain

Oceans swallow all of our feelings

I know it's just temporary pain, pain

 

'Cause I used to make my world so small

Prisoner to my bedroom walls

I never thought that I'd get this right

But I finally know what it feels like

To be alive

To be alive

Open my eyes

Feels like the first time

That I finally know what it feels like

 

To be alive

To be alive

Open my eyes

Feels like the first time

That I finally know what it feels like

To be alive

 

Darkness used to wrap its arms around me

I used to bring it with me everywhere, where

I swear that sometimes I get to be my worst enemy

I swear this is all the time, the answers spin right in front of me

All of the beauty and love I cannot see

I see it now

I see it now

 

'Cause I used to make my world so small

Prisoner to my bedroom walls

I never thought that I'd get this right

But I finally know what it feels like

To be alive

To be alive

Open my eyes

Feels like the first time

That I finally know what it feels like

 

To be alive

To be alive

Open my eyes

Feels like the first time

That I finally know what it feels like

To be alive

 

Flowers still look pretty when they're dying

Oh, flowers still look pretty when they're dying

Flowers still look pretty when they're dying

Oh, flowers still look pretty when they're dying

Flavour of the Month Lyrics

January used to keep me warm

Wore me like an icy Audemars

Drape me on your jet black Yamaha

I, I was your flavor of the month

 

Gave you a taste of what you want

Mint chocolate, scoops of bubblegum

Tastes so sweet, you couldn't get enough

I, I was your flavor of the month

 

Thought that I was your favorite

But it's clear that you like something different

So don't waste my time

Won't you tell me what you like?

'Cause good taste, it don't last forever

(No, no, no)

 

(Strawberry kisses)

We were melting in the sun

(I'm so delicious)

Got that tingle on your tongue

(Don't act suspicious)

If I'm not the only one

(No conversation)

Tell me your flavor of the month

Tell me your flavor of the month

 

Spinning and spinning and spinning and spinning me round

Swallow me, swallow me, swallow me, swallow me down

Taking a piece of me whenever you come around

I'll be your, I'll be your favorite flavor for now

Spinning and spinning and spinning and spinning me round

Swallow me, swallow me, swallow me, swallow me down

Taking a piece of me whenever you come around

I'll be your favorite for now

 

(Strawberry kisses)

We were melting in the sun

(I'm so delicious)

Got that tingle on your tongue

(Don't act suspicious)

If I'm not the only one

(No conversation)

Tell me your flavor of the month

(Strawberry kisses)

We were melting in the sun

(I'm so delicious)

Got that tingle on your tongue

(Don't act suspicious)

If I'm not the only one

(No conversation)

Tell me your flavor of the month

Tell me your flavor of the month

 

I came to be delicious

My tendency is vicious

Come sample me, O-M-G

I'm not like vanilla bitches

You're taking a piece of me whenever you come around

I'll be your favorite for now
