about

"Gritted Teeth" is the second single from my upcoming EP, NOISE, on FUTUREHOOD.

lyrics

V1
Lessons learned go down like fire
Mistakes are made and carved in stone
You can't escape your history
Shame is written in my bones

The closet door was never opened
You tore down the walls that stood
I don't think that I'm a sinner
I'd like to think that I am good


BRIDGE
Which one of us will throw the first fist in the fight
I'm swallowing bullets just to get through the night
It doesn't give you rule and it doesn't make it right
I'm falling to pieces, I never got what I needed
Yeah, I know

HOOK
You're saying I love you with gritted teeth
I wish we could go back to the old days, old days
You'd love me in the old ways, old ways
Enough's never enough to make some peace
We sit around and wait to stoke the old flames, old flames
We always play the same games
And never win


V2
Bruises fade but always linger
Wounds close up, but never heal
There's always something in my way
That something's never really real

You never let me in the picture
I was always out of frame
We are different in our feelings
But the same blood is in our veins
