lyrics

With the shades pulled down, dissolving into your couch,
I stare at the floor so I don't stare at your mouth.
This is what I wanted for me. This is what I wanted to be all this time.

She's rolling her eyes as I preempt my regret,
and she avers that I've been hedging my bets.
This is what I wanted for me. This is what I wanted to be all this time.

By the door, you're finally telling the truth
and I swallow my tongue 'cause I don't know what to do.
This is what I wanted for me. This is what I wanted to be all this time.

Maybe I lied and maybe I liked it,
but I'll keep it inside because this wasn't my kiss,
and maybe I'm fine or maybe I'm hiding.
This is what I wanted for me. This is what I wanted to be all this time.
This is what I'm starting to see: maybe you just weren't meant to be
mine.

about

couchsleepers Burlington, Vermont

Folk storytelling that tastes like indie rock. In our world, it's always after dark, an eternal post-midnight, post-party comedown for the lonely and the insomnatic and the vespertine.
