about

i got the idea for this song thinking about drunk (and sober) girls who feel like they have to keep uncomfortable heels on to look pretty. discomfort isn’t a good literal or metaphorical start to anything.

it’s probably the most genuine “love song” on the album. it’s just about finding someone who wants to be held as much as you want to hold them.

lyrics

All your asshole friends
They flock to fake breasts
Leeches sinkin' into skin
I hear your heart dance circles
'round the thought
That you should just be fittin' in

One furtive glance
Tells me I
Should just bring you home
Don’t feel alone

I just want to hold you
I just want to hold you

Streaks of starlight flow like rivers
Through the auburn tresses of your hair
Climbing up this cobblestone
Take your heels off, baby I don't care

Unlock your door
Let your lab
Lick the freckles on your face
And ask me to stay

I just want to hold you
I just want to hold you

Posters on your bedroom walls
Hiding spots where you'd let the paint run
Bubble gum and cigarettes
Whiskey on your breath and on my tongue

Breakfast in bed
Make up lies
For us both to phone in sick
Days we won't miss

I just want to hold you
I just want to hold you
I just want to hold you
I just want to hold you
