Inure 06:06
I tripped on your compliments, my confidence stopped ringing bells but you knew me so well The blue couch in the living room still has that smell And even wet linen, still makes my heart swell Remember that soup that you spilled on your legs? You cried into fists as I cleaned up the dregs But your lips shook long, after I put you to bed And I swore I could never, ever watch you regret, again Remember, remember me when you fall in love, again Remember, remember me when you fall, again Remember holidays I never felt so safe I fear a lot but you know what, these scars, they just show my age And maybe I will grow, the more that I’m alone And with a single throw, I’ll knock em back and I'll tell em where to go I won’t forget the three weeks by the estuary longest I ever went without a shirt on me Your lips were cooler then, the tide rolled in on them closest that I came to finding somewhere I could feel again Remember, remember me when you fall in love, again Remember, remember me when you fall, again

Twenty Four 03:18
Wasn’t one to walk home alone Anything to get you off my phone Don’t apologise unless you mean it If it’s just to clear a conscious, I don’t wanna hear it ‘cause I’m better than that I’m better than that I’m better than everything you said I’m better than that I’m better than that I’m better than everything you said I’m not one to drink on my own Don’t need courage, no reason to roam Scared enough feeling sober you know Scared enough that you drink when you’re low And then you made me cry on the train Don’t need to hide tears in the rain Twenty four and no birthday was great; rubbed my back after saying you hated me but I don’t hate her, I’m just trying to save her but I’m better than that I’m better than that I’m better than everything you said I’m better than that I’m better than that I’m better than everything you said I’m waiting to feel wanted over needed Still wanting you to love me and mean it But you’re happy, to lose me so delete my fucking caller ID 'cause I’m better than that I’m better than that I’m better than everything you said I’m better than that I’m better than that I’m better than everything you said I’m better than that I’m better than that I’m better than everything you said I’m better than that I’m better than that I’m better than everything you fucking said

Safe 04:44
You are Sunday mornings wrapped in everything I never knew I needed Maybe that's conceded Now I like you better when you’re leaving Monday came quicker than the summer when you were gone I was out the back and you were honking your horn begging for attention as the sun wore on Something tells me that it’s forty degrees And my only black jeans are hugging my knees but I’ll hide all of me ‘cause I don’t like my body Oh class, it’s Tuesday now and my heart hurts, does it make you proud that I’m learning? It makes me proud that I’m learning I forget what I need when it’s quarter to three I’m killing more time and it’s Wednesday eve and maybe if you’re nowhere near, I'll learn how to breathe 'cause baby it’s a Thursday, maybe I’ll get takeaway Coming down on Friday, numbing down my way And I can kiss you on a Saturday can I kiss you on a Saturday? and we’ll wake up on a Sunday your hand around my waist Dreaming of another day any day but Monday 'Cause I’m struggling tonight, to put me at ease I’m in fight or flight maybe I’ll call Elise and I’m clutching at needs fending off these bad dreams and I know I'll like myself more in the morning yeah I feel more at home when I’m yawning not mourning something I can’t see And there’s nothing more safe than hearing Mum say, why don’t you come home, we’ve got tea on the stove and we love you and I say, I’ll be there soon I’ll be there soon I'll be there soon

There were dust shells in the light pockets There were film trailers playing in my wallet Folded movie tickets pressed behind my drivers license Nostalgia spilled across my floor So I ran my fingers along the skirting boards Tried to stop it from spilling more Tried to stop me from riding it out the door And the dust it grew, and garnered, and forever made it harder to let you look me in the eyes on the days where I didn’t want to be alive There are rattlesnakes in the bottom drawer where my parents kept the spare batteries and more the coming out letter I sent too late somewhere beneath the measuring tape I worked so hard to make myself tall tried to balance on the chairs my mother cut the legs off I propped myself up with a daydream crutch of being a strong boy and making my own lunch of grabbing hands and asking them to dance of hoping for a Summer romance And the dust it grew, and garnered, and forever made it harder to let you look me in the eye on the days where I didn’t want to be alive

about

Your early twenties are weird and terrifying. I spent mine learning a lot about myself. I developed a pretty debilitating Anxiety Disorder and somehow made it out the other side. I’ve made some of the most beautiful friends who have carried me on their backs and in their arms through every heartache and soul shake I've endured. My psych included.
I learned how important it is to make friends with yourself, and to love yourself and mean it. And I’m really, really glad that I have something tangible to show for it. This is Inure EP.
I hope it makes sense to you and I hope you hear it the way I felt it.
