Got some offers to go out
some excuse to leave the house
we'll be cradled by these
overzealous cabs

I see reflections of you
in every other girl's eyes
it's not the healthiest view
the doctors tell me why

Don't fix your hair - it's just me
Don't fix your hair

Do you suppose - you're never coming back to me
I want you to know - it's a tiny little tragedy
So stuck in your throat - (when you need them most)
the words aren't coming easily
My heart only knows - what it can balance easily

How do people start again?
how do people meet?
These simple, subtle arguments
our blankets take the heat
And in the deep night if I should scream
that you're changing everything
(with this ritual of need)

Don't fix your hair - it's just me
Don't fix your hair


Little reason for this - to matter very long
with impermanence like this - we'll trust things off and on
strangers take us home (for now)
you better explain yourself
best we explain ourselves - before the lights go out
