    Lyrics:
    I’ve spent my days cursed perching in the
    Towers of uncertainty
    With dragons in my nursery
    Perfectly patched
    Swallow fire with the words I speak
    Swimming only where the currents lead
    A prince charming
    Always meant to battle free
    But the sharpest blade
    Can’t stab gravity
    And I never thought that I could survive the fall
    So nights I played with wine, days in tylenol
    I never would’ve thought that you could’ve climbed the walls
    Kept my keep safe from keepsakes shy and all
    Caught a fever and I couldn’t seem to write it off
    Nonbeliever at a crossroads n
    Kinda raw
    I’ve always had asthma
    Needed space to breathe
    But you made it clear you could wait for me
    It’s hard for me to say it straight but plain to see
    We play a crazy game of checkmates and make believe

    And I’ve always been taught to stay away from four letter words
    But just this once, I’ll let em work
    I’ve learned that things ain’t always gotta be perfect
    To be worth it, so I guess I’ll let em burn

    I’ve always been taught to play the wait and see
    As it turns out you’ve been waiting patiently
    I’m not saying that it’s always been meant to be
    I just hope you understand what you have meant to me

    I’ve spent my days playing safe with a place to haunt
    Young ghost stayin gaunt with forsaken wants
    Life under breath, words that I’m saying softly
    embossing a strain on my faded thoughts
    A lot of people say they’ve lived to escape the thaw
    I live life with a flame in bed shape and all
    But heard self immolation wasn’t safe at all
    So when I caught sparks
    Lost it tryna pat em off
    I’m flawed, I’ve always wanted to remember that
    But the fear of getting caught shot me dead in tracks
    Kept my head in wax, heart in the breakbeats
    Humanity always locked with the same keys
    I’ve heard that most learn to play off of middle c
    But we found our ways accidentally
    So here’s another fever dream for my velveteen
    What I mean is I love you and
    I’ll be back in the spring

    And I’ve always been taught to stay away from four letter words
    But just this once, I’ll let em work
    I’ve learned that things ain’t always gotta be perfect
    To be worth it, so I guess I’ll let em burn

    I’ve always been taught to play the wait and see
    As it turns out you’ve been waiting patiently
    I’m not saying that it’s always been meant to be
    I just hope you understand what you have meant to me
    Let it burn

    I won’t pretend that I’m not afraid
    Know we both got a tendency to complicate
    But we’ve come from an honest place
    Don’t know where we’re going but we’re on our way

    I won’t pretend that it’s rational
    I know it ain’t, believe me
    I just never in my wildest dreams
    Thought that us would be this easy
