lyrics

It’s the kind of situation I wish I smoked ciggarettes
And it’s the kind of situation I wish I didn’t feel regret
Caus’ I would bowl right up to you, ask you for a light?
Then I would look you up and down and say “how’s your night?”

Instead I stare.
Messing with my hair
And I won’t dare
Pretending I don’t care

Take up the book, the pen, the sword, the rhyme
Or take up love, but do it on your own time

I’m crap at small talk I’m not a smoker, you glance up I feel mediocre

And why? Do they say that casuals easy?
Stuck in my head, my body seizing.
Why? Do they say that casuals easy?
As far as I can tell, nothing here is gonna free me.

And it’s fine, fine, fine
I can take it in my stride stride stride
And I can try, try try
To feed another line

So I bowl right up to you ask you for the time?
I’d say my cell phone died and all my mates went outside.

Instead I stare.
Messing with my hair
And I don’t dare

My hands just fidget, picking my nails. I breathe in but…there’s no exhale

And why? Do they say that casuals easy?
Stuck in my head, my body seizing.
Why? Do they say that casuals easy?
As far as I can tell, nothing here is gonna free me.
