Cool calm cold collected

Lie lie lie to me

You won’t forget it

I wouldn’t let it

We both know you won’t die for me

It’s five o’ clock you’ve got nowhere to be

Call you up for a game of hide and seek

Inhibition’s sailed to be lost at sea

And we’ll wave it goodbyes from the port

I won’t be surprised if I

Woke up to a dead line

We’re on a steady decline

Our love was broken by design

Don’t matter I’ll still play nice

I promised you I’d be fine

You’re psycho and I’m

Borderline

But I promised you I’ll be fine.

I promised you I’d be fine.

By all means we’ll let the dreamers dream

Our story’s unwoven at the seams

Only we can say what this means

And we both know I’ll never be yours

(And we both know that you’d never be mine)

You won’t be fighting at my front line

We’d scrapped together all our pennies and dimes

With the change that we can spare we’d fall short (but of course)

I won’t be surprised if I

Woke up to a dead line

We’re on a steady decline

Our love was broken by design

Don’t matter I’ll still be kind

I promised you I’d be fine-

A stale cigarette romance

You’re not the type to hold hands

I won’t be your valentine

And you wouldn’t want me to.

But I promised you I’ll be fine, fine, fine

I promised you I’d be alright,

I promised you I’d be just fine

Promised I’d be fine.

A/N: Captain disillusion! Sixteen year old me set this to four chords and an indie-pop melody, complete with a cute lil refrain. A relatively lighthearted nod to that casual rebound that makes things okay for a little as you parachute down from the fall. They’re that welcome distraction that can’t even hurt you if they tried. Sometimes you need that.
