Gorgeous

[Verse 1: Taelor Gray]
Yeah
Melodic backdrop it's Sting and Fats Domino
The star stained sky, I cracked the seal of the envelope
I'm concealing my thoughts I just know how this goes yo
All them signals are crossed, somebody's left in the cold
Though I'm complicit with words, unspokens[underspokens?] are heard
I see you crack the smile and it's gorgeous
Yo if I'm honest it's revenge
And then it's just unconscious when
I just needed reasons to pretend
And that's not responsible
Yo what's pity to a coward that's so enslaved to responses though
But you so gorgeous
And I'm just a carnivore
Houses of bricks
Yeah I'm just a commodore
Yeah I'm in the way, can tell it how you wrote this
Again with these roses, man again with the motions
Can't say that it's love, but we can't enclose this
Can't say that it's love, but we can't enclose this
Yo why you so gorgeous

[Hook: B.Reith]
Gorgeous, gorgeous
But there ain't enough rain in the forest
It'd be vain to think we could enjoy it
We've had strangers destroy us
Oh gorgeous, so gorgeous
But there ain't enough rain in the forest
It'd be vain to think we could enjoy it
We've had strangers destroy us
Oh

[Verse 2: Tragic Hero]
Without the shadow of a doubt
Give you everything I owned
We said it with our eyes but was never set in stone
Reading between the lines put everything on the line
Caught up in a moment that put destiny on a hold
And I'm wondering if
If the risk is really worth it
We can both put on a show in front of these curtains
God knows that all of these roads don't lead to gold (no)
My eyes closed I'm leaning forward jumping to urges and the conver
Sation started like I'mma leave a mark
Tell me what's a pure intention inside an evil heart
Beauty is in the eye of the blind when it's dark
Nothing can be designed within the lines if it's art
With no heart, but its vein(it's vain), and the scars get uncovered and get drained
Holding grudges like pictures of gasoline
I light a match
Now does it hold up any value
I'd teach you how to let go if I could remember how to
But it's all temporary
Laws hoping to get me
Sitting right by the wall hoping water falls through the levees
With a cup in my hand cause drinking rain just ain't enough
Picking roses from your unattended garden with my lust

[Hook: B.Reith]
Gorgeous, gorgeous
But there ain't enough rain in the forest
It'd be vain to think we could enjoy it
We've had strangers destroy us
Oh gorgeous, so gorgeous
But there ain't enough rain in the forest
It'd be vain to think we could enjoy it
We've had strangers destroy us
Oh
