2018 NPR Tiny Desk Contest Entry

LYRICS:
I know I can be
A little overwhelming
It’s hard enough already
To make it through
But that’s the price
I figure I’m paying
To have my muse
To know your name

I don’t wanna lose you
If I don’t have to
But sometimes I think the earth is gonna
Open up and swallow you whole
Love is a weapon
See if you can use it
‘Cause I don’t wanna fight like this anymore

You lost your nerve
Did it happen for a reason?
Were you bolder, were you stronger?
Are you still asleep?
Well, it’s too late now
To think about what happened
I’m swimming in an ocean of
Divine Discontent

I don’t wanna lose you
If I don’t have to
But sometimes I think the earth is gonna
Open up and swallow you whole
Love is a weapon
See if you can use it
‘Cause I don’t wanna fight like this anymore
I don’t wanna fight

Everyone is in love with the sun
As it falls and ignites the sky
Oh, but give me twilight
The outline of starlight
I’d rather be blue
Tonight

I don’t wanna lose you
If I don’t have to
But sometimes I think the earth is gonna
Open up and swallow you whole
Love is a weapon
See if you can use it
‘Cause I don’t wanna fight like this anymore

I don’t wanna lose you
If I don’t have to
But sometimes I think the earth is gonna
Open up and swallow you whole
Love is a weapon
See if you can use it
‘Cause I don’t wanna fight like this anymore
I don’t wanna fight like this anymore
I don’t wanna fight
