First Sight

  • Promise the lake
    Don't try, don't be
    Exist just like me
    Promise shame
    Every bit of everything is screaming so quietly

    Is there anything else to say?
    Are there any more words to sing?
    Right after doubting all the things you claim
    Right before giving all of it away

    I thought I was ready to write
    But you had me years ago
    You had me at first sight
    Even if it means nothing now

    Promise these hands
    No more empty praise and worship
    Get lost at first sight
    I'm driving my car away
    I'm heading north

    I thought I was ready to write
    But you had me years ago
    You had me at first sight
    Even if it means nothing now

    It hurts most in the mornings
    And I wish I was in Chicago
    Their statements are all contradictions
    And I don't think they can figure it out

    All our damages transform us
    We're like our own historians
    Is there anything else to say?
    Are there anymore words to sing?

    Every bit of everything is screaming
    Promise the lake
    Get lost at first sight Writer/s: Andy Trick, Chris Rubey, Daniel Williams, James Baney, Jeremy DePoyster, Mike Hranica, Ziggy Jerome
