Lyrics

Your father's cabin
Your mother's strength
Your brother's sense of self
All the years in high school
Wishing you were somebody else
All the secrets told in a haunted house
With ghosts you've leard to trust
I am letting go of me and becoming us
That song that made you cry in the car
On the drive to Delaware
The anger that you feel when people stare
I'm becoming okay with giving you a piece of my control
A new kind of shared autonomy for you and me
I will help you breathe
I will not deny that I
That I need you in my life
Would you say it?
Just say it, so do I
And you can be the pills that help me sleep
I'll be the medicine that keeps you awake
I'll keep you awake
I float through it all
Without ever knowing
What being here is about
But when you're around
It feels like I've figured it out
And some nights you will need to sleep alone
And that's alright
But is it alright if that's not tonight?
I will not deny that I
That I need you in me
Would you say it?
Just say it, so do I
And you can be the pills that help me sleep
I'll be the medicine that keeps you awake
I'll keep you awake
