This is the third track off of our second EP "No Disrespect".


Getting sleep is hard waking up is harder
Fuck the sun for coming up so early
I'm straining my neck looking for a purpose
Trying to ignore every inch of me is hurting
And that's just my best excuse that I could think to use
For being distant from you advances
And lust by a different name made our intent the same
But you've confused mistakes for second chances

I am guilty of, not reciprocating love
And I beat myself up for being undeserving
I apologize for having such a cold heart
It's getting to the point where it may never melt

Worried that I will never see the day
Where I forgive myself for pushing you away
Or learn the difference between the people I care about
And who I choose to spend my time with


I woke up one night longing for the soft touch of your body
The three words haunt my memory... regret I wasn't ready


from No Disrespect, released July 17, 2016
Recorded and Mixed by Nick Ginn at Schoolhouse Studios. Mastered by Andy Krehm at Silver Birch Mastering.
