Singalong! Not With You by Tegan and Sara

Oooooh boy, I used to listen to this Tegan and Sara album a LOT. I had a dark room (you know, because photography used to require film that was developed and printed on paper?) in the basement of my parents' house, and I would play this CD over and over again while I printed my super angsty, super artistic black and white photos of weeping statues and evocative tree branches.


NOT WITH YOU
by Tegan and Sara

I can't believe I've let you in
And now here I am telling you
That I'm suffocating in here
Just like the drugs you are keeping me
I felt shark teeth underneath my socks
Before I lost much blood
Around this world will I be enough?

From the liquor stores
To the train stop floors
Your filthy room, your drama blues
I am nothing if I'm not with you
I'm always right, always wrong
Dressing bad is like loving you
There is nothing I haven't worn
Nothing I haven't said before

Your fluid is thick against my sheets
When you look at me oh so angry
I know it's true
My strength has come from loving you
Behavior I just can't grow into
So you fake and you flaw
For your cops and your cause
It makes no difference to me
It's love that you stole, that you stole

From the liquor stores
To the train stop floors
Your filthy room your drama blues
I am nothing if I'm not with you
I'm always right always wrong
Dressing bad is like loving you
There is nothing I haven't worn

Nothing I haven't said before
So here I am around this world
Will I be enough?
This is nothing I haven't said before
You are nothing I haven't felt before
