I wanted to move away from the depressing ukulele + vocal songs and add more instruments and upbeat stuff.

Track Name: It's Like This...
Funny words and faster lips
I never thought it'd come to this
Passionate, oh passionate was I

Repeat these words and you kissed my lips
Everything always ends like this
We were just trying to have a good time

Oh sweeter words and sweeter lips
I'll miss your hair and I'll miss your hips
But everything one day will die

I miss your sight and I miss your smell
And you'll never be able to tell
But nobody else has ever made me cry

Well heartbreak tastes like chocolate cake
Cigarettes and there's nothing to take
back from me, I left it all behind

Hear these words and read my lips
I hate that my life has come to this
And I hate it even more over time

Taste my blood and feel the shame
Guilt is the name of the game
Be careful, it'll eat you alive

And not that I'd expect you to care
Change your morals and change your hair
But you can't change these feelings of mine

And it's been long enough, I should move on
Fuck this girl and fuck this song
But happiness doesn't have a master

As of now, let's stay the same
Silence except for point blame
At everything but ourselves.

I'll say these words loud and clear
There's nothing left to conquer here
I'm sick and I'm sad all the time

And I only wish the best for you
Just as long as you always stay true
to that girl that I used to adore.
