Picket Fence Girl


VERSE:

She kills me with her cheap smile,
A fake one at best, but she puts on for me,
And even while I’m in the background, no sound,
Wiping her sick up off the bathroom tiles,

It’s clear, and I know,
There’s more to this then she’s letting on,
Cause when her eyes dart over to me, she can’t hold them steady,
Or is it ethanol taking control? 

BRIDGE:

I can feel you slipping more and more everyday,
The more we wait the less we save,

CHORUS:

What did I do, to deserve this? 
- You’re always pushing on, don’t know which way is wrong,
There’s no room to breath, when I’m under your surface,
- And when our stars aline, you go and shut the blinds,
Is it all bad news, is it worth it?
- I wanna wait for you, but I can’t wait that long,
My picket fence girl, who are you?

VERSE:

She plays with that long brown hair, 
Hazel like her eyes, such a fitting disguise,
For the girl next door that hates to make up her mind,

She’d rather have us treading eggshells and playing dirty games,
Bought up in the country, you’d think she’s fairly tame,
It only fuels her fire, leaves her expecting more, 
It’s fucked because she wants me, so what’s she waiting for?

CHORUS:

What did I do, to deserve this? 
- You’re always pushing on, don’t know which way is wrong,
There’s no room to breath, while I’m under your surface,
- And when our stars aline, you go and shut the blinds,
Is it all the truth, is it worth it?
- I wanna wait for you, but I can’t wait that long,
My picket fence girl, who are you?

BRIDGE:

I can feel you slipping more and more everyday,
The more we wait the less we save,

CHORUS:

What did I do, to deserve this? 
- You’re always pushing on, don’t know which way is wrong,
There’s no room to breath, under your surface,
- And when our stars aline, you go and shut the blinds,
It’s falling through, is this worth it? 
- I wanna wait for you, but I can’t wait that long,
My picket fence girl, this one, 
- This one’s on you,
