Subject matter being those old school daydreams of escapism, mixed with the early signs of reality crashing on top. This concept had been kicking around my head since I was in elementary school; the romanticization of a foreign exchange gal that would sweep you away.


Reviewing anything with regret
is exhausting to a troubled mind
sometimes I forget all the ways
I fucked up and made you cry

At times I still wait for the girl from Paris
to come down to my class and
we'll travel from Iceland to Bombay

But it's okay cause I'm with you
to share eternal youth
without a moment un-shared

Trying to get the approval of
all people that you respect
knowing very well that you're not even
close to being good enough yet

It's difficult to concentrate
leaving a fulfilled existence

Don't you know it means a lot to anyone
when you want to laugh at them
so laugh and get this over with

Please don't leave
please don't leave
please don't leave

God damn the jealousy
piling up between the cracks
of a failing self confidence

In nightmares and stupidity
but in reality
kiss me and tell me I'm the best thing
that you'll ever have
