No Better

Album: Pure Heroine (Extended) (2013)
  • We roll in heavy summer when there's strength in our numbers
    And your breath's hot and gross but I kiss you like a lover
    Legs stick to the seats of the car someone grew into
    I forget the knowledge from the lessons that I went to
    And Jamie picks fights but they're weak and short lived
    Because no one can be bothered when it's humid like this
    And we roll in heavy summer like it's shameful to be underneath
    The ceiling or a roof, try come out and steal our thunder

    Now the days are getting cooler, and the burning of our limbs
    Doesn't happen quite as bad as the burn is just skin
    Deep in the fantasies and dreams of the winter
    Like the movies that we watched to pretend it wasn't winter
    And everywhere we go I can feel the subtle taste
    Of the deeds outgrown and the welcome overstayed
    And you're no better at swimming than you were in the beginning
    But you come over at night and we practice all the breathing

    Go all the way
    Have your fun, have it all
    So take it down
    Get through the days
    Do your thing, do it well
    So take it down

    Go all the way
    Have your fun, have it all
    So take it down
    Get through the days
    Do your thing, do it well
    So take it down

    I'll pull the trick if I want to
    I'll pull the trick and it comes true
    I'm chewing gum and it's killing you
    We're getting dead and it's the right way to do it
    I see you happy in the front seat
    I see you with all of your front teeth
    You're allergic but you never said
    We're getting dead and it's the right way

    Go all the way
    Have your fun, have it all
    So take it down
    Get through the days
    Do your thing, do it well
    So take it down

    Go all the way
    Have your fun, have it all
    So take it down
    Get through the days
    Do your thing, do it well
    So take it down

    Go all the way
    Have your fun, have it all
    So take it down
    Get through the days
    Do your thing, do it well
    So take it down

    Go all the way
    Have your fun, have it all
    So take it down
    Get through the days
    Do your thing, do it well
    So take it down Writer/s: ELLA MARIJA LA YELICH O'CONNOR, JOEL LITTLE
