Lyrics:
THE DAYS HIT LIKE SOME NEW DRUG
MY EYES ARE SHARP BUT MY FACE IS NUMB
I KNOW JUST WHAT I'M DOING
BUT WHAT IS THIS THAT I'M PURSUING

AND YOU SAY
ARE YOU OKAY
YOU SAY
ARE YOU OKAY

WHAT DO YOU FEEL
(CAN YOU PUT IT INTO WORDS)
WHAT DO YOU FEEL
(CAN YOU PUT IT INTO WORDS)
WELL I FEEL IT TOO

SOMETIMES MY HEART IS PURE
SOMETIMES I KNOW IT'S NOT
SOMETIMES IT DISAPPEARS
RETURNS UNLOCKED

ARE YOU OKAY YOU SAY
WELL AREN'T YOU
ARE YOU OKAY YOU SAY
WELL AREN'T YOU TOO

WHAT DO YOU FEEL
(CAN YOU PUT IT INTO WORDS)
WHAT DO YOU FEEL
(CAN YOU PUT IT INTO WORDS)

BUT WHAT IF IT DOESN'T GO AWAY
WHAT IF THIS FEELING ALWAYS PLAGUES
I'M RECKLESS AT NIGHT
I'M SORRY FOR DAYS
I'M LOOKING AT YOU
THROUGH LAVENDER HAZE


Track 5: Too True To Be Good"

I SAW HER SLIP
OUT OF HER EYES
MY BREATH IT CAUGHT
I WAS SO SURPRISED
SHE CALLED MY NAME
THEN DISAPPEARED
SHE'S LIFE SHE'S LOVE SHE'S TIME
SHE IS HERE

TOO TRUE TOO TRUE
TOO TRUE TOO TRUE

THE CLOUDS WERE OPENING
ABOVE MY HEAD
STOOD ON THE EDGE
FEELING SO DEAD
OH SUCK ME UP
WON'T YOU TAKE ME AWAY
I WANNA FEEL
SOMETHING TODAY

TOO TRUE TOO TRUE TOO TRUE TO BE GOOD
TOO TRUE TOO TRUE TOO TRUE TO BE GOOD

WE'RE KILLING HOURS
WE'RE KILLING TIME
WE'RE TRACING FLOWERS
IN WESTERN SKIES
WE TALK FOR HOURS
IT'S ALL REPRISE
I'VE NEVER BEEN
MORE SATISFIED

TOO TRUE TOO TRUE TOO TRUE TO BE GOOD
TOO TRUE TOO TRUE TOO TRUE TO BE GOOD

I TRY TO REMIND MYSELF
IT'S GONNA BE FINE
BUT WHEN THE DAY
RUNS OUT INTO NIGHT
AND ALL THE WEIGHT
POOLS UP IN YOUR MIND
IT'S HARD TO OUTRUN
THE DEVIL FROM BEHIND

TOO TRUE TOO TRUE TOO TRUE TO BE GOOD
TOO TRUE TOO TRUE TOO TRUE TO BE
