Sustenance and Sleep
I can’t really live without both
The role that I should keep
Interjects itself in my soul

I’ve got sunburn in November
Bless my heart
I can’t take more of this weather
Through to March

Sustenance and sleep
Gotta get me out of this cold
Who I’m supposed to be
Now I doubt that God even knows

I’ve got rainbows on my shoulders
Bless my heart
I’ve got mascara all over
Mocking art
I’ve got winter in my fingers
Holding yours
I’ve got people who know better

Sustenance and sleep
Feel like I could make myself whole
Ways that I should be
The world’s just gonna have to implode

I’ve got winter in November
Bless my heart
I’ve got some kind of good temper
That’s a start
