  • Julian
    He's gonna take my files

    Every woman that I've slept with
    Every friendship I've neglected
    Didn't call when grandma died
    I spend my money getting drunk and high
    I've done things unprotected
    Proceeded to drive home wasted
    Bought things to win over siblings
    I've said awful things, such awful things

    And now
    Now it's out
    And now
    Now it's out

    Julian
    He's gonna take my files

    Telling people jokes to shut them up
    Resenting people that I love
    Sleepin' 'til two then doin' shit
    Just stay in bed and later lie 'bout it
    Obsessing over greying hair
    Knowing just what people wanna hear
    Binging on unearned attention
    I've said awful things, such awful things

    And now
    Now it's out
    And now
    Now it's out

    I came by at seven in the morning
    Seven in the morning, seven in the morning
    I came by at seven in the morning
    I said, "Baby, I'm finally succumbing"
    Said something dumb like "I'm tired of running
    Tired of running, tired of running"
    Let's put a baby in the oven
    Wouldn't I make the ideal husband?

    Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh Writer/s: Joshua Michael Tillman
