Debut Premiere: bit.ly/atwoodvylet

lyrics

Don’t get mad, get even
This has gotta be the longest con
Waiting for a word caught in my throat
Hoping, floating till it’s gone

Drink me dry
5 am, Le Tambour, oh
Those people we were before
don’t exist anymore

But don’t mind me
Your breath fogs up the glass
My bare feet on the windshield
til it turns black

Don’t know why I do what I do
Maybe I can’t love you the way I want to
Why I do what I do
Why can’t I love you the way I want to?
The way I want to
Love you the way I want to

So the tide turns
La petite morte, oh
Rothko sunset, gold and blue
Come hell or high water

I’ll have you
Your breath fogs up the glass
My bare feet on the windshield
til it turns black

Don’t know why I do what I do
Maybe I can’t love you the way I want to
Why I do what I do
Why can’t I love you the way I want to?
The way I want to
Love you the way I want to

At first blush, I smelled blood
You should have seen your face
Adonis in an absinthe-haze
But don’t mind me
Your breath fogs up the scene
I’m caught up in the dream
A dream

Don’t know why I do what I do
Maybe I can’t love you the way I want to
Why I do what I do
Why can’t I love you the way I want to?
The way I want to
Love you the way I want to
