lyrics

i can’t remember when the dark came round.
but i knew it by name when the house burned down.
it grabbed me by the neck. it dragged me to the bed.
it covered my mouth and fucked with my head.
i can’t remember when the dark came round.

and i’ve been lying to my sister again.
second time this year she’s cried by my bed.
she says, “please, quinn, don’t start thinking again.
you worry me sick when you get like this.”

i can’t remember when the dark came round
but i can feel it in my cheeks when i smile, even now.
i remember what it’s like to fight the urge to crash the car.
how could i forget?

are you ever really whole again?
maybe blue is just who i am.

there’s noise in my ears like the salt in my tears
are you ever really whole again?
and it’s dark in my room and my mind has been too.
but i’d never lay this burden on you.

now, please mama, don’t you worry bout me.
no, no, sweetie, don’t you worry bout me.
i’ll be fine, or i’ll try
but these trials are mine.
please mama, don’t you worry bout me.
