lyrics

True North
We were making colors
making them bleed
I am so red
you are so green
You look at me like
you can't believe you get to touch it
and what does this mean
for us
you've really got some crush
I don't really do this much
but your hope is dangerous

You really don't want me to go
No no no no
I've already chosen my true north
you really don't want me to say
baby baby
I was only looking for escape
when you come onto me
come on to me

Still in suspension
of your disbelief
this hour's not my finest
this hour's not my finest
the bed that I'm making
is the bed where I'll lie
you said you could take it
you said you would try
for what
if it don't really hurt that much
in effort to save this just
leave it alone

You really don't want me to go
No no no no
I've already chosen my true north
you really don't want me to say
baby baby
I was only looking for escape
When you come on to me
Come on to me

Give in to what feels good
tracks follow you where you trace
and the hand over my mouth
won't let the lie out
for your sake

You really don't want me to go
No no no no
I've already chosen my true north
you really don't want me to say
baby baby
I was only looking for escape
When you come on to me
Come on to me
