Track Name: US
Love is work, love is hurt
When it kicks you to the dirt
Love is search, love is birth
When you put someone else first
Love is messy, love is heavy
When it has you stressing plenty
Love’s a blessing, love’s investing
And is often prone to testing

I think I’m fetishizing the way you make me feel
And I don’t want to do that, I want to love you for what’s real
‘cause sometimes the “I love you” gets above you
And all I keep thinking is does she trust me?
And do I trust her? I’m not perfect, but I’m worth it
She’s not perfect, is she worth it? Damn right, so let’s go slow
I’m caught up in my head again and losing control
‘Cause some dream she had where I was nowhere to be shown
The anxiety is real, that’s how I know it’s for sure
it’s not there if you don’t fear them walking out that door
And I’m always afraid of something more
And I’m always scared that she isn’t sure
‘Cause when it comes down to it I’m torn up from the floor
There isn’t much left of me now but it belongs to her
I’ve been hurt before too many times to ignore
But she’s been hurt even more so I try to make sure
I’m not following the path of those wicked men
‘Cause if I see those fuckers I’d put a gun to their head
Or maybe get up close with some knives instead
And slice ‘em up for every slight against her till they were dead
But I digress, getting ahead of the pressure in my chest
I’m a wreck whenever we fight when we should fuck instead
But if I had the option I’d do it all over again
‘Cause it brought me to you and I guess that’s what makes sense

[Chorus] (x2)

Alright, I have a confession to make…

Nine times out of ten I don’t know what I’m doing
I’m making up these plays as the hike is said
It’s been said I circumnavigate these feelings instead
Of doing the core work to keep my demons in check
And our love ain’t like most others
Then again we’re not like most others
‘Cause instead of running for cover
You’re the rain and I’m the thunder
I’m erratic, it’s emblematic of a problem I can’t bandage
I am damaged beyond salvage, always at a disadvantage
You attract whatever hope that I can manage
Fuck yeah, I’m the whole package if UPS dropped it in transit
I’m ecstatic at the thought of you, making music out of static
When the voices in my head unite to praise your magic
I’ve got baggage so the passage through has been a challenge
But the thing you’ve taught me best is the art of balance
Love is more than weathering the storm, it’s forfeiting the norm
‘Cause when you’re both war torn the norm seems forlorn
But when you’re both on board the past is nothing to mourn
‘Cause if you both never conform the world can’t steal your form
Love’s more than a chore, it’s a house to maintain and explore
‘Cause when you’re both feeling worn, you finally see the change in decor
it’s more than folklore, it’s a lifestyle to adore
‘Cause if you’re both feeling sore, you both had something to fall for

[Chorus] (x4)
