about

Started out as a Twilight Sad cover only. Morphed into a partial Have a Nice Life cover as well. Why? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ idk it sounded good together! I started this / got the structure down and everything in December and wanted to finish it in January for the sake of itself but I'm slow. But it's done now so enjoy the thing!

lyrics

I see you at night, and I stare at you
You don't care for me
Without the light, I still glare at you
look away from me

So don't lie, it's taken you all night,
of feeling the same
with me
So don't die, it's taken you all night,
of feeling the same.

(Please please please release me)
You are too old to fare on your own
(Oh please please please release me)
You are too old to fare on your own

And they say, it can't be won
when it's your eyes
touching my eyes
to the past that we know
They say it can't be done,
and they say it's all just fun
but it's your eyes
touching my eyes

Don't like what you find, staring back at you
You don't care for me
So don't lie, it's taken you all night,
of feeling the same
with me

And you know that I won't. You know that I won't
You are too old to fare on your own

And they say, it can't be won
when it's your eyes
touching my eyes
to the past that we know
They say it can't be done,
and they say it's all just fun
but it's your eyes
touching my eyes

Can you hear my faintest breath, is it amplified?
The number that I've become will put you inside
I've got a message that I must relay
And it can't delay it one more day (it's not going well!)
(Will you comfort me!? You'll comfort me!)
It is desperate, can you relate?
Can you please relate? Can you please relate! (I'm not holding up!)

And they say, it can't be won
when it's your eyes
touching my eyes
to the past that we know
They say it can't be done,
and they say it's all just fun
but it's your eyes
touching my eyes

(Just open up your eyes, you dead ones)
This isn't the you that I came here for
(All ashes on the floor!)
This isn't the you that I waited for

(Just open up your eyes, you dead ones)
This isn't the you that I came here for
(I will never need you more!)
This isn't the you that I waited for

Just open up your eyes, you dead ones
(Please please please release me) (That I waited for)
Just open up your eyes, you dead ones
(Oh please please please release me)
