Look Both Ways Lyrics

“Hollow”

by Olivia Millerschin

Verse 1:
I’m hollow, hollow, all your words echo in me.
Your soft words and sweet turns of phrase come alive when I’m trying to sleep.
I’ll follow, follow you till you tell me to go.
Your turning me round in these circles and I know you know.

Pre Chorus:
Am I not enough? Or am I just a bit too much?

Chorus:
Hope is a lost cause when everything you’ve ever known that ever was beautiful leaves you in the morning.

Verse 2:
Your shallow shallow promises I know won’t keep.
Still they drag me back into your arms when I’m ready to leave.
I’m growing growing up into someone I like.
Stay with me, take your leave, make up your mind, I’m too tired.

Pre Chorus:
Am I not enough? Or am I just a bit too much?

Chorus:
Hope is a lost cause when everything you’ve ever known that ever was beautiful leaves you in the morning.
And I pray that it won’t happen again but there’s no way I can defend all we have when you leave without warning.

Bridge:
We fell short this time, you take yours and leave me mine.

Chorus: x2
Hope is a lost cause when everything you’ve ever known that ever was beautiful leaves you in the morning.
And I pray that it won’t happen again but there’s no way I can defend all we have when you leave without warning.

“Far From”

by Olivia Millerschin

Verse 1:
Broken bottles on the carpet, broken body on the floor.
I’m not lost, I know exactly where I am, I just don’t want to be here anymore.

Pre Chorus:
I’m spinning ’till I’m far enough away from everything that I’m so damn afraid of.

Chorus:
These people have turned to monsters, with eyes black as coal, and their voices are an unfamiliar hum.
This town is full of terrors down every road I go. I know I’ve got to make a new place, new face my home.

Verse 2:
Breaking branches on the doorstep as I search for signals in the sky.
Because I don’t feel safe here, but I don’t feel pure there. I think I’ll live on state lines.

Pre Chorus:
I’m spinning ’till I’m far enough away from everything that I’m so damn afraid of.

Chorus:
These people have turned to monsters, with eyes black as coal, and their voices are an unfamiliar hum.
This town is full of terrors down every road I go. I know I’ve got to make a new place, new face my home.

Bridge:
Be my home.

“Long Weekend”

by Olivia Millerschin

Verse 1:
I thought this through, wrote it out. Read the directions but fell off course, off course.
Spend so much time in my head, you’d think I’d know how to get in yours, in yours.

Pre chorus:
You’re still right here but I can feel you pulling away and it’s not gravity.

Chorus:
Oh too bad, could’ve sworn that you felt like coming home again.
Oh so sad, could’ve sworn that you’d be my very long weekend.

Verse 2:
Watch how we carry this out, fool everyone but ourselves, what for, what for.
Waste so much time breaking glass and lighting fires just to watch all them burn.

Pre chorus:
And now you’re further I can’t feel you here in my arms, who knows where you are?

Chorus:
Oh too bad, could’ve sworn that you felt like coming home again.
Oh so sad, could’ve sworn that you’d be my very long weekend.

“Look Both Ways”

by Olivia Millerschin

Verse 1:
If you want it so bad go and get it yourself.
If you’ve had it so bad you can change that right now.
But you’d rather go and hurt yourself or anyone else in the way.
I’m shy, but not weak that was your one mistake.

Pre Chorus:
You hit me just to see if I hit back.
We’ll see how well you do living your life like that.

Chorus:
I look both ways before I cross the street.
So tell me, how the hell did I not see?
You coming full speed ahead, you coming for me instead, you coming full speed ahead for me.

Verse 2:
When you’re dragging behind you can quicken your run.
When you’ve fallen so low you can always look up.
But you’re not the type to save yourself and I’m not the type who wants to
Watch your desperation make a meal out of you.

Pre Chorus:
You hit me now you know I won’t hit back.
We’ll see how well you do living your life like that.

Chorus:
I look both ways before I cross the street.
So tell me , how the hell did I not see?
You coming full speed ahead, you coming for me instead, you coming full speed ahead for me.

Bridge:
I forgive this, forgive that, cuz I know you’re so sad, forgive all that you’ve been.
I forgive this, forgive that, if it hurts so bad why am I holding on to it?

Chorus:
I look both ways before I cross the street.
So tell me , how the hell did I not see?
You coming full speed ahead, you coming for me instead, you coming full speed ahead for me.

“Rather Stay”

by Olivia Millerschin

Verse 1:
Darling, you’re a scar. You’ll always be a part of me but oh, sometimes I still feel the sting.
Baby, you’re a star. I want you for my sky tonight but oh, sometimes it just doesn’t feel right.

Chorus:
On the days were angry, what a mess we make.
But if you asked me if I want to leave, go off and find new things to see,
Well I think I’d rather stay.
I know I’d rather stay.

Verse 2:
Dear, it’s safe to say that we have had our unsafe days but oh, we know we’ll make it out ok.
Because you are one old soul, but you have got two brand new eyes and oh, I only want them looking into mine.

Chorus:
On the days were angry, what a mess we make.
But if you asked me if I want to leave, go out and find new things to see
Well I think I’d rather stay.
I know I’d rather stay.

Bridge:
And If we burn this down, here and now, you know that we will build it up higher.
Oh if we burn this down, here and now, you know that we can take a little fire.

Chorus:
On the days were angry, what a mess we make.
But if you asked me if I want to leave, go out and find new things to see
Well I think I’d rather stay.
I know I’d rather stay.

“When”

by Olivia Millerschin

Verse 1:
My mind is a mess, my body’s a wreck, your arms are the only refuge I know.
When morning arrives, the pain may subside, but tonight there’s no way that I’m going home.

Pre Chorus:
So here I am, now’s your chance to

Chorus:
Raise your voice, show me your worst, show me your worst.
Give me hell, say I deserve this, say I deserve this.
I’ll take you anyway, I’ll love you every day, if you return.
And when you return to me, I’m never letting go.

Verse 2:
My words are all wrong, I speak too loud for too long but what was I, what was I talking about?
I know that you’re angry and there’s no use explaining that I ran away because nobody’s loved me like that.

Pre Chorus:
But now here I am, take your chance to

Chorus:
Raise your voice, show me your worst, show me your worst.
Give me hell, say I deserve this, say I deserve this.
I’ll take you anyway, I’ll love you every day, if you return.
And when you return to me, I’m never letting go.

“Ellie”

by Olivia Millerschin

Verse 1:
I hope Ellie read her mail today.
I know she won’t like the news.
I’ll bet she thinks it’s a Christmas card.
And I’ll bet, she still loves me too.
I passed in the house my parents did,
and no one realized for days.
It’s strange, in a city full of souls and sights to see,
no one sees a thing.

Pre Chorus:
But she saw my everything,
And she’s still my everything.

Chorus:
I’ll wait for you to come home to me,
And I’ll be your shadow and your safe place to lay
when your tired bones wanna go to sleep.
Ellie, all these years don’t mean a thing.

Verse 2:
We met on the corner of Canal
And I should have married her that day.
But she moved onto someone mother would approve,
but I know she felt the same

Pre Chorus:
But she saw my everything,
And she’s still my everything.

Chorus:
I’ll wait for you to come home to me,
And I’ll be your shadow and your safe place to lay
when your tired bones wanna go to sleep.
Ellie, all these years don’t mean a thing.

“Get It Right”

by Olivia Millerschin

Verse 1:
I need some time to get my mind right, follow directions stay inside lines.
And if you want me you’ll stay 10 feet back, leave me on track.
I will assemble all the parts here, I read the manual twice dear.
And if you know me you’ll know what to do, leave me some room.

Chorus:
I’ve got to organize this love of mine, I want to get it right for you.
Don’t mean to make you wait, I’m calculating, I want to get it right for you.

Verse 2:
I’ve been around, I know the game well. I really want this all to work out.
But I’ve seen sadness and disasters too, so let’s think this through.

Chorus:
I’ve got to organize this love of mine, I want to get it right for you.
Don’t mean to make you wait, I’m calculating, I want to get it right for you.

“Tree”

by Olivia Millerschin

Verse 1:
I’m walking the same, but it feels like I’m walking through water.
They’re talking the same, but I can’t make their words out just right.
All of these faces, they look a lot like yours.
But none of the quite give off your same shine.

Chorus:
But I lay my head knowing that you lay your head somewhere safe.
And I rest well in knowing that you are up doing the same.

Verse 2:
I’m breathing the same, but it doesn’t feel fair when you’re too.
I’m thinking ok, but one question can’t seem to be removed.
Who gets to say who lives and who dies? Not me, not you.
So let’s get this straight, when you’re given a life you don’t take others too, take others too.

Chorus:
But I lay my head knowing that you lay your head somewhere safe.
And I rest well in knowing that you are up doing the same.
