It Only Gets Much Worse

Album: Grand Romantic (2015)
  • I was born before the storm
    My mother placed a dozen thorns
    The sorry's and the take it back's
    Lay silent in her folded hands and
    Head to headstone I just danced
    Oblivious to consequence
    As morning sank into the ground
    The highest branch I sorted out

    Oh, I didn't mean to let it go
    I didn't mean to bruise but I lost control
    And when she said to me it's still a ghost[?]

    All your love may fade away
    All you'll become may all go to waste
    So I can't stand to hear you say it hurts
    When it only gets much worse
    It only gets much worse

    Oh you caught me come to life
    The moment when your eyes met mine
    And from your bed, the sun came in
    And to this day it never set
    But here's to this I'm used to it[?]
    I stepped out for some cigarettes
    The neon lights they called me in
    Her eyes like yours, just different

    And no, I didn't mean to let you go
    I didn't mean to bruise but I lost control
    What didn't mean a thing destroyed us both
    Darling

    All your love may fade away
    All you'll become may all go to waste
    So I can't stand to hear you say it hurts
    When it only gets much worse
    It only gets much worse

    I couldn't quite believe
    The way you used to pull me down
    It takes its toll[?]
    I survived
    The laws of gravity
    Destroyed some property
    I would not let them sink their teeth into my soul
    Whoa-oh

    All I love may fade away
    All I become may all go to waste
    So I can't stand, hear it say it hurts
    When it only gets much worse

    All I love may fade away
    All we'll become may all go to waste
    So I can't stand to hear you say it hurts
    When it only gets much worse
    It only gets much worse Writer/s: BHASKER JEFF, HAYNIE EMILE, RUESS NATE
