ROSE TINTED CHEEKS *2016 rough draft*

  • Published: 18 April 2018
  • a 2016 rough draft of this idea that would have made the album FLOWER BOY. lyrics below.

    i never had the courage to tell you i adore you
    i did it in a song i was too afraid to call you
    im sorry i know im annoying
    i just want your attention
    ever since i saw you knew nothing was important
    your gravity is too strong its fucking up my orbit
    contact avoided by the time i record this
    i just want you to listen
    everytime i see you, you brighten up my day
    you’re cashmere to my cotton and i wished you felt the same
    more options in the alphabet i know ill be OK
    no i wont
    its them rose tinted cheeks
    they black flag we AF
    we BF as AF
    but they wont get that
    thats that 20 century women reference
    you so hard to get like intricate metaphors
    companies? i own four
    but all i want is yours
    hit the plex and catch a band or sushi spot i recommend
    float around hitting wheelies leg or engine based it all depends
    either one is cool to me
    and you’re way too cool for me
    ima freeze to death tryna keep up
    thirsty i am i may need three cups
    eye contact
    speeding down the 5 in my newest ride
    you was kinda high speakers mild high
    track 10 track 10, dirtbike afternoons
    as long as pale skin is near i didnt have to leave the room
    switch gears
    roamed around around fell in love
    broke my leg and got stuck what the fuck
    hit my head, wait, i wish you would fall in too i said
    i wish you would fall in and snap them legs
    cause ima be stuck here until im dead and gone
    i remember when we first met
    my eyes, like jeans too tight, i couldnt take em off you
    you’re precious metal i was a magnet just looking
    ive been searching for something
    but didnt know what i was looking for
    then you popped and it became so clear
    like that water up north, so clear
    im intimidated by your existence
    flustered because of your presence
    your absence leaves me in a state of confusion
    i cant function, i cant explain it
    im aware enough to know this is just a temporary pool of emotion
    but since im here, i might as well drown
    please dont save me

              The singing is kinda off and morbid but it becomes buttery almost with the beat and melody

                                              Y'ALL keep saying Igor but what about cherry bomb or a different album that could fit.... Wait boyfriend that was a Igor bonus or leak that would be in a good order of things with rose tinted cheeks .

                                                          Everyone’s talking about how it sounds like IGOR/FB, but nobody’s saying that it could go perfectly with Cherry Bomb with the high pitched voice and somewhat goody line delivery

                                                                it’s kind of refreshing to hear new music that’s not saturated with autotune. even though the singing isn’t perfect, it’s intentional and unique

                                                                  • ezradip
