lyrics

ten bucks says
that you think about her
more than she thinks about you
and she has no idea
what you're thinking about
or what you've been going through
and you can memorize
patterns of rugs from
staring at the floor

but avoiding eye contact doesn't work much anymore
it doesn't work much anymore

So i'll wash
the cigarette smoke
out of my clothes
they smell like your car did
six months ago
back when you picked up a pack
because you thought that they made you look cool

but they don't
no they don't.

and i know that you don't think it's wrong
to replace mine with his name across your tongue
with casual sin and smoke in your lungs
i'm just another boy that life did him wrong
i'm holding on cause it's all that i've got,
this letter you wrote that says that i'm all that he's not
and i'm hoping that that doesn't mean what I think it means

so i'll wash
the smell of your perfume out my skin
I've got all of these
these thoughts and these words
but I don't have anywhere to begin

so I'll start with this, you're a blade to my neck
i can't handle these words
Can't handle regrets
can't handle this right now
i'm sorry

i'm holding on cause it's all that i've got,
this letter you wrote that says that I'm all that he's not
i'm hoping that that doesn't mean what i think it means
TEN BUCKS SAYS
i'm holding on cause it's all that i've got,
this letter you wrote that says that I'm all that he's not
i'm hoping that that doesn't mean what i think it means
