Written and recorded by Christofer Lincoln.


Don't change
one single thing.
Walk me home. Tonight.
Oh love. Held in by sticks, just one more fix before you go.
One time
I could never find what was real.
Gold or rust
Don't ever try to trust what you can't
Oh love. Held up by sticks
Broke under weight of your kiss.
Paralyzed by the eyes of an eyesore, I needed you to last.
Lies that tie into my fake laughter, I needed you ask.
Why do the birds sing?
Why do the stars burn above?
Why does it hurt so
much when you turn out the light?
Oh love. Held you by sticks
We can't ever trick the ones who try.
