Burn It Down lyrics - Daughter

Always said I was a good kid
Always said I had a way with words
Never knew I could be speechless
Don't know how I'll ever break this curse

Now the world is only white noise
Frequencies that I can't understand
I can't be bothered with the teachers
Always trying to shape the way I act

Burn it down, burn it down, burn it down, burn it down

I'll set fire to the whole place
I don't even care about our house
It's not the same in here since he left anyways

Burn it down, burn it down, burn it down, burn it down

Always said I was a good kid
Always said I had a way with words
Never knew I could be speechless
Don't know how I'll ever break this curse

Now the world is only white noise
Frequencies that I can't understand
I can't be bothered with the teachers
Always trying to shape the way I act

Burn it down, burn it down, burn it down, burn it down

Momma told me all of this is
Just a place we have to settle for
Less than anything we dream on
We'll continue to be disappointed

I feel down, I feel down, I feel down, I feel down
I feel down, I feel down, I feel down, I feel down

Burn it down, burn it down, burn it down, burn it down
Burn it down, burn it down, burn it down, burn it
Burn it, burn it

Hope lyrics - Daughter

Go back to where you held armour against your skin
Don't sink, just swim towards the storm
And once again you'll be reborn, reborn, reborn

Go back to where I held armour against my skin
Won't sink, I swim towards the storm
And once again I'll be reborn, reborn, reborn

All I Wanted lyrics - Daughter

The virtual is going in the way
Keep it tight so no-one will stray
Staring at a light needless to say
That I will be alright, alright

And your tears sting, friend
You have waited the end out there
Golden hour finding
You stand still, stare at my stupid bedroom

All that I wanted wasn't unwanted
Oh and I wonder why I'm not wanted
All that I wanted was not there
But I dared
Be wanted

Yeah, in a corridor
Yeah, and you call me
Yeah, when I see you
You, you know damn well

Throw back arms I love you
And I won't be bothering with mourning
It's crucial that you see the truth
When looking for yourself I'm useless
Answer
Hey

Yeah, in a corridor
Yeah, and you call me
Yeah, when I see you
You, you know damn well

Dreams Of William lyrics - Daughter

Where will I go?
When the only home I've known is ashes now
How will I know when the only love I'm shown is so changeable?
How do I grow then, when I've been alive for the best part of my life
Feeling alone
Feeling alone with you
Without you
With you
Without
With you
Without you
With
Without you

A Hole In The Earth lyrics - Daughter

In my own turn
I'm trying to reach out I know I'll get there soon
There's a hole in the earth here
And we're walking round the edges
You were flaunting all your open wounds
I can't express them better than you

You have buried childish qualities
Friend make sense of me, friend make sense of me
I have many destructive qualities
Friend make sense of me, friend make sense of me

It's like an old ruin
Your father's a liar while my father's lying down
In a hole in the earth there
And I'm scared I'll forget him
I'm still haunted by those open wounds
I won't express them truly to you

You have buried childish qualities
Friend make sense of me, friend make sense of me
I have many destructive qualities
Friend make sense of me, friend make sense of me

I have so much hurt inside me
Friend make sense of me, friend make sense of me
I have so much hurt inside me
Friend make sense of me, friend make sense of me
Friend, friend, friend, friend

New Ways lyrics - Daughter

Washed out brain
I have a dirty mind
Oh, I need, I need new ways
To waste my time
I need new ways

Washed out brain
I live alone, alone, alone
Washed out face
Keep me inside, I need new ways
To waste my time
I need, I need new ways

I'm trying to get out
Find a subtle way out
Not just cross myself out
Not just disappear

I'm trying to get out
Find a subtle way out
Not just cross myself out
Not just disappear

I've been trying to stay out
But there's something in you
I can't be without
I just need it here

I'm trying to get out
Find a subtle way out
Not to cross myself out
Not to disappear

I've been trying to stay out
But there's something in you
I can't be without
I just need it here

Oh I need
New ways to waste my time
I need new ways
To waste my time
I need new ways
To waste my time


Numbers lyrics - Daughter

Take the worst situations
Make a worse situation
Follow me home, pretend you
Found somebody to mend you

I feel numb
I feel numb in this kingdom
I feel numb
I feel numb in this kingdom

Chemically enlaced faces
Black out nights and tight spaces
We'll feel distant embraces
Scratching hands 'round my waist, yeah
I'll wash my mouth but still taste you

I feel numb
I feel numb in this kingdom
I feel numb
I feel numb in this kingdom
[x2]

You better, you better, you better
You better make me
Me better, me better
You better make me better
[x4]

I feel numb, make me better
I feel numb in this kingdom
I feel numb, make me better
I feel numb in this kingdom


Doing The Right Thing lyrics - Daughter

And they're making children
And they're making love
With their old excuses
We are built for reproduction
But I find it soothing
When I am confined
I'm just fearing one day soon
I'll lose my mind

Then I'll lose my children
Then I'll lose my love
Then I'll sit in silence
Let the pictures soak
Out of televisions
Float across the room
Whisper into one ear
And out the other one

Then I'll take my clothes off
And I'll walk around
Because it's so nice outside
And I like the way the sun feels
And when it's dark
I'll call out in the night for my mother
But she isn't coming back for me
Cause she's already gone
But you will not tell me that
Cause you know it hurts me everytime you say it
And you know you're doing the right thing
You must know you're doing the right thing

I have lost my children
I have lost my love
I just sit in silence
Let the pictures soak
Out of televisions
Out of televisions
Out of televisions
Out of televisions
Out of televisions

And they're making children
Everyone's in love
I just sit in silence
Let the pictures soak

How lyrics - Daughter

Moving on
Is moving in slow motion
To keep the pain to a minimum
Weightless, only wait for a fall

How long must I wait for you
Undone in the evening?
How long must I wait for you
To become what I need?

Holding old souvenirs
His words inked from birthdays
Goodbye to our empty ruins
Yeah, that's when I saw her

Hold me back
Hold me back
All I am
All I am

How long before the last dance?
How come he's the one to let me down?
How come they glow different in the evening?
How come they stare distant into daylight?

Like it's alright
Like it's alright



Mothers lyrics - Daughter

You will grow all you need to grow inside my spine
And then take what you need to take, what's yours is mine
And then just give all you want of it to some new thing
I'll stay here, the provider of that constant sting they call love
They call love

You will drain all you need to drain out of me
All the colors have washed away, no more rosy sheen
Not just a pale isolated shallow water place
Oh what a place I call myself
I call myself

Oh love all you need to love before it goes
When your face becomes a stranger's I don't know
You will never remember who I was to you
Carried in the womb
I'm called mother
I'm called mother
They're called home
They're called home
They're called
They're called
Mothers
Mothers

Give all you need to give
And sometimes they won't take what they need to take
The strangest chemical reaction
Inside of her brain, no she's not the same
No she's not the same
No she's not the same



Alone / With You lyrics - Daughter

[Alone:]

I hate sleeping alone
Terrified with the lights out
I hate living alone
Talking to myself is boring conversation
Me and I are not friends
She is only an acquaintance
I hate dreaming of being alone
Cause you are never there
Just a shadowy figure with a blank face
Kicking me out of his place
I hate walking alone
I should get a dog or something
I hate eating alone
I hate eating alone

[With You:]

I hate sleeping with you
Cause you are never there
Just a shadowy figure with a blank face
Kicking me out of his place
I hate living with you
I should get a dog or something
I hate walking with you
Talking to myself is boring conversation
You and I were once friends
Now you're only an acquaintance

I hate dreaming of being with you
I hate dreaming of being with you
I hate dreaming of being with you
Terrified with the lights out
Terrified with the lights out


No Care lyrics - Daughter

No one asks me for dances because I only know how to flail
I always hit like I'm drowning, dead arms around him
I'd rather stand still, hold tightly to the walls

No care, no care in the world
No care, no care in the world
I don't care, I don't care anymore
I don't care, I don't care

Love you in a panic because I prefer to sit on fences
Spit-kissing on my sickbed
I'm not searching for replacements
But we are like broken instruments
Twisted up and wheezing out the runnels
Sleepless folks watching light grow
Through their early morning windows

I don't care, I don't care anymore
I don't care, I don't care

Oh, I'm too drunk to fight, hurlings curses at your surface
Because I'm aware, because it hurts that I'm in love again
And you have kissed my neck so your arguments are insane
Fighting over the way something was said
Well, I'm still here like a cheap threat

No care, no care in the world
No care, no care in the world
I don't care, I don't care anymore
I don't care, I don't care

Oh, there has only been one time where we fucked
And I felt like a bad memory
Like my spine was a reminder of her
And you said that you felt sick
I was so heavy hearted, lying side-on with you afterwards
How I wanted you to promise we'd only make
How I wanted you to promise we'd only make
How I wanted you to promise we'd only make love
But my mouth felt like I was choking, broken glass
So I just slept it off
You see, my mouth felt like it could talk the end of us
So I just slept it off, slept it off

No care, no care in the world
No care, no care
I don't care, I don't care anymore
I don't care, I don't care

Ah, I'm too drunk to fight
I only wanted you to promise me we would only ever make love
But my mouth felt like I was choking, broken glass
So I just slept it off
Wanted you to promise me we would only ever make
Wanted you to promise me we would only ever make love
