Self-produced song for my band The Acronyms. I sing and play most instruments save for saxophone (Travis Howry) and drums (Sam Velazquez).

Thought I learned to avoid your love
With the absence of a brace
But nothing seems to change

Gave my time to another one
But no one can share your grade
So nothing seems to change

Glued my eyes to an end of the way you talk
Paved an outline of your problems with phonetic chalk

You are on my mind

Girl, there's little you have done
To earn my confession:
You are on my mind

Still alive, you divided into something new
Something beautiful, inscrutable, but still abused...

Girl, I want you here, I want to hear you sing
I am still obsessed with trying to set you free
Caged up with the ones who want to clip your wings
Girl, I want you here, I want to hear you sing

Are you sure you want to do something you've done before?
Some of us are waiting for your voice to soar
Offering a hand so you can skip the floor
Don't say you want to do something you've done before

Spent your years packing fears into a criminal's car
Fought your mirrors and appeared to have your life in a jar
Girl, I hope when you're ready you'll accept who you are:
A child of God with birds on her arm...

She held our hands by a lonely campfire
She howled at the moon

She held our hands by a lonely campfire
As she howled at the moon
(Now this is the question: am I still in love?)
