Hopeless, Romantic

by Jordan Thornquest

supported by
Kit thumbnail
Kit This song is the deep emotion of a friend telling you to do something and then nodding and acting like you’re going to do that while in reality you are about to go and fuck your own shit up. It’s a rare type of a love song that isn’t exactly pining, more so just repetitively falling for people and running yourself into the ground knowing that your feelings will never be returned but not really being able to stop, because that’s just who you are. Favorite track: Hopeless, Romantic.

"You have a strange power to convince yourself / that you don't want the things you need."


You have a strange to power to convince yourself
That you don't want the things you need
Your friends all know you a little better than you do
They try assist
It's every primary instinct
To clench your teeth and resist

I swear, I swear I'm happier alone
Do you think she feels the same?
I think much more clearly on my own
Do you think she things the same way?
Everybody else is allowed to feel
Pick at the wound, don't let it heal
Boy, you're hopeless
Aren't you

I prefer stress over boredom
It makes me feel like I'm a little more important
Because the more things I do, the less I have to think
The more I make, the more I don't think about how close I am to breaking
Now my hands are shaking
That's okay, I know why, I just need a little more
Sugar and sleep
Sugar and sleep
Say it again, it makes it sound deep
