Trees

They say when you fall hard
It’s a million miles to the ground
But you don’t, no you don’t, make a sound

I say mean things when I’m falling, falling
Cause I don’t want to let my walls come down
I suppose it’s too late now

Maybe I should’ve listened to my mother
When she told me to be your friend before your lover
But then we were naked
And there wasn’t really anything left to say

Except ooh la (x2)

I thought I knew you
From some other place, time, or life
It was instant, so real, like a spark

This chemistry’s getting, getting to me
My walls are falling faster than gravity
I want to let go forever

And say Ooh la (x2)

Honey, trust me
When I say I’m playing the field too
Something steady is the last thing on my mind
But it’s the not the same
As when it’s just me and you
Alone in a crowded room

Thought it was going to be
Nice and slow
I swear
It was going that way
Until the day
I didn’t care
About societal norms
Or the double standard
But I guess that’s how girls get hurt
I was easy so I got burned

Maybe I should’ve listened to my mother
When she told me to be your friend before your lover
But then we were naked
And there wasn’t really anything left to say
