lyrics

feet swinging
saying push me, push me
summer dusk
and i’m not scared, not scared

bee stinging
we don’t know the words
does it taste so sweet
anymore

youth like a flicker
bitter coffee, say you don’t care
has anyone ever ever cared?
i hope so

birds winging
it’s clouding pink and purple
there were no paragraphs about this
in the puberty books they wrote

oh, oh

this is living,
drinking soda
on a rooftop, on my rooftop
who said we were ever cool

streets of hanoi
streets of the west side,
it’s light out at midnight, at midnight
sunrise forever

i’m sad
who isn’t sad
looking out from the point at stilled seas,
bruised knees, and i know

oh, i know
we’re all so afraid
no one’s gonna love us like we think they should

it’s light out at midnight
bruised knees
stilled seas
crushing sky

love, love love
like a creeping vine

feet swinging
saying push me
push me

who said we were ever cool?
