Originally appeared on the Acoustic Softies EP.


you're mvp on a losing team
acting as if you'll be 17
for all your life
and i heard you cry
when you were spitting into my eye
said its been eating you up inside
you up inside
and i know its hard to be alone
everyone is scared of showing people who they are
and i know everyone knows if you let them in they'll break your heart
but you are worthless if you're waiting
play it safe, yeah play it cool
but while you run away from everything
i dont ever envy you
change your heart
youre all alone and you know you are
say nothing matters and call it art
say what you mean
and i gave it back
my idealized version of the past
my fear that everything's meaningless
i gave it back
and i know its hard to be alone
but its harder still to let those feelings grow
tangerine, my little tangerine.
