Inspired by "Type Slowly (live)" by Pavement

lyrics

Walls all chipped up and
A one note stereo
Brush and finish up one
With a million more to go

And I see your drained face
A ghost in the paint

Well the brush strokes and the colors seem to rectify my sting
When the empty paint cans pile up and clutter everything
Yeah and every time I roll around and try to get to sleep
Will you be in my dream?

But you won't be there for me, my love
No you won't be there for me
You won't be there for me, my love
No you won't be there for me

Summer's holding on
For dear life in a crumbling home
Swirl the paint around and around and around and
Disappear into my headphones

And I see your blank face
A ghost in the paint

Well the brush strokes and the colors seem to rectify my sting
When the empty paint cans pile up and clutter everything
Yeah and every time I roll around to try to get to sleep
Will you be in my dream?

But you won't be there for me, my love
No you won't be there for me
You won't be there for me, my love
No you won't be there for me

You won't be there for me, my love
You won't be there for me
You won't be there for me, my love
You won't be there for me

You won't be there for me, my love
You won't be there for me
You won't be there for me, my love
You won't be there for me

You won't be there for me, my love
You won't be there for me
You won't be there for me, my love
You won't be there for me
