and then you find the song’s about you
cherry pick all the pits
now the song's the agent
and i'm just a witness

'till you find yourself in LA
crushing up against the sun
bleaches memories
what is left is just a sketch

i could never draw a straight line
i could never trace your edge
(a writer: a liar)

hold me up in case i tumble
share the shape that exists only in my brain
all these tangents to explain

play the part a dozen times
nothing's automatic
struggles to convey these thoughts
how they tend to linger
push it through my fingers

translate what i hear to sound vibes
pick a colour for the mood
you can guess what's left in my mind
stumble into something cool?

how much of what i say is true?
(when i talk about you?)
how much is rhyme, how much is bitter parts?
(all the guys you had instead)
i'll never find the perfect view

sketch the chords up in my mind
how it's automatic
find the rhythm in the morning light
(with the guy i had instead)
trust the melody holds up

i could never draw a straight line
i could never trace your edge
(a writer: a liar)
