So Long Naota - Philadelphia

If intimacy or the lack there of doesn’t scare you to death then frankly i dont even want to know you
Count emergencies of the last 12 months tell me what’s left for this unforgiving world to show you
Met a boy from Massachusetts talked gods and queers all night subtlety of his smile swayed my head
Couldn’t shake the path of two lips placed imperfectly right eight hundred miles away in your bed

I’m not saying that i want to run away
But at least you’d know where to find me
Philadelphia is calling out his name
so ill see you when the road is behind me

Woke up in a warehouse with magic on the walls paintings of puke and wrestlers and pizza
Was it the sick sounds of hyperactive dogs playing or the Amanda X riffs ringing out even sweeter
an art school darling who radder than hell reminded me of a fusion of myself and my best friend
jersey charming warmest bed in a week Well weve come to the conclusion to just stay up all night instead

I’m not saying that i don't want to run away
But at least you’d know where to find me
Philadelphia is calling out his name
ill see you when the road is behind me

im not asking you to make everything ok
im just glad to know i can call you
east lansing michigan in a few more days
do the thing and make my dreams all new

So Long Naota - Hold Fast

Self aware and self assured are sadly not the same
Getting used to disappointment like it was your middle name
When the sun it sets and leaves you, and only the cold remains
Just like the river in your hometown or the blood inside your veins

And anyone worth anything is everyone to you
In love with love and its losing like its your worst dream come true

Hold fast to the hope that things improve
Know that life is whats right in front of you
Although this world will tear at you with every tragic turn
You better Let your life be lit by every lesson that you learn

Unbalanced and unburdened by unbelievability
Left pining for the presence of lips placed perfectly
Just like that song about the burning car and delicious sounding drink
Or the one where the stars fall from the sky and where they long to be

falling in and out of favor as fast as you fell for all your friends
Underscored and understated as your attempts to make amends

Hold fast to the hope that things improve
Know that life is whats right in front of you
Although this world will tear at you with every tragic turn
You better bet your path is brightened by every bridge you had to burn
