Hollywood 04:09
Widen your world, it's narrow So many possible shapes outside of the lines Lead them astray in your fable So they won't see you cry Slow down, easy there Hollywood Writing your name now, Up and down the neighbourhood Slow down, easy there Hollywood You gotta live up to it Before they say you're good Up in the trees in your castle, Nobody visits a friend so out of the way Cover the break in your laughter Like you do with the lines on your face And face that you might have some growing Left in those brittle bones, But what do I know? Maybe we both need to slow down Before the power lines take over [Chorus] Leap through the clouds without warning You're just a silhouette, soaked in rain that you made Happens so fast every morning Almost everyone says its a phase [Chorus] Your pride is infectious But we can't let it get to us
2.
It’s the way, now we say we’re sorry won’t you open the gates for me, oh covered in gold In another life we’ll share this story words that hold me so I’m only yours paint me all gold I’ve got a fire burning inside me I’ve gotta find it, before it finds me It’s the walk down that makes us worry the fifteenth minute of our glory, oh it’s getting older than this sorry, but sorry doesn’t cut it when the ships sound alarms in the ether am I allowed to love it? they’re here now I’ve got a fire burning inside me I’ve gotta find it, before it finds me open the flood gates and let me in let me in beautiful things unfold covered in gold
3.
Shoot Me 03:39
Shoot me in the chest cause I'm already dead, you can be my guest baby I'm tired of running around, eyes shut, pretending I'm not the wild one And I'm done with the caging up of our young minds, blaming them for their surprise So Shoot me in the chest cause I'm already dead, you can be my guest baby Alone, making this prison of ours their home, taking prescriptions for being golden (They're golden) Sit still, with this beating inside their chests, just aching to do their best So Shoot me in the chest cause I'm already dead, you can be my guest baby Lovin' yourself ain't easy When you're young and wanna please them Biting the hand that feeds you so well (oh well) So Shoot me in the chest cause I'm already dead, you can be my guest baby So shoot me in the chest Cause I'm already dead to you And I'm tired So go ahead and shoot me
4.
When you leave without saying goodbye You’re leading me on, so honestly try and save me with grace when I need it the most I know we are not hopeless And I get to counting the ways that you do ‘cause ain’t nothing I, I wouldn’t do for you there’s nothing I wouldn’t do When the wind brings you home to me I know that you and I can do anything You love me with grace in the middle of fire and here, we build empires And I get to counting the ways that you do ‘cause ain’t nothing I, I wouldn’t do for you there’s nothing I wouldn’t do It’s a sweet kind of mistake to get to know you in every way Even your dark side is a summer’s day And I’m doing my best for you
I gotta confess to you that I get to counting the ways that you do ‘cause ain’t nothing I, I wouldn’t do for you there’s nothing I wouldn’t do
5.
What's your little baby gonna say When she finds out all your days are done? She's in love with the morning You're in love with the wild run She puts flowers in her hair Says you're the only one [Chorus] She dreams only in colour Saw yourself in her effigy Thought you'd only be lovers But you made a refugee From a darlin sweet as she [Chorus] Oh run baby run, before you come undone Spent the summer in the sun Now you're burning up Run baby run, before you come undone 'cause you're not the only one [Chorus]
