21 Questions

Album: Double Dare (2016)
  • I wish there was a situation to be mad at
    Or a person I could blame
    I've got a loud mouth, I'm pale with a ghost obsession, but behind the scenes with her I'm playing 21 Questions
    There's gotta be a reason
    You keep your guy in hiding
    I'm becoming what I've hated
    But your talk is so inviting

    But then what?
    You drop your guy and take me on
    It's everything I wanted
    But then what?
    Would you get tired of my time?

    My mood's dictated by our conversations
    And if you don't text I get too frustrated
    I want you all to myself this time
    Conflicted looks good on me
    I'm trying desperately
    I want you all to myself this time

    I never have to
    Carefully shape sentences
    When I've got some words to say
    They're falling from my mouth from the time
    That they hit my brain
    'Cause we built a picture made for frames
    We live in chemistry away from all the wasted time and taste

    But then what?
    You dropped your guy and took me on
    It's everything I wanted
    But then what?
    Would you get tired of my time?

    My mood's dictated by our conversations
    And if you don't text I get too frustrated
    I want you all to myself this time
    Conflicted looks good on me
    I'm trying desperately
    I want you all to myself this time

    And it sucks to sleep
    'Cause you aren't talking to me
    I wanna give you space
    But the amount between us is wrecking me

    But then what?
    You dropped your guy and took me on
    It's everything I wanted
    But then what?
    Would you get tired of my time?
    Cause then what?
    You dropped your guy and took me on
    It's everything I wanted
    But then what?
    Am I in his position now?
    Would you get tired of my time?

    My mood's dictated by our conversations
    And if you don't text I get too frustrated
    I want you all to myself this time
    Conflicted looks good on me
    I'm trying desperately
    I want you all to myself this time

    I'll forget you if you need me to
    Like nothing ever happened
    My sun still sets without you
    Like nothing ever happened
