New single released July 1, 2016.


Low-grade longing, unspecific pain
These are the best years of our lives
Hoping next time won't turn out the same
These are the best years of our lives
I'm sorry I don't believe it
Would you if you were me?

So dry your eyes, I promise I won't make them wet again

Don't get up too quickly or you'll pay
These are the best years of our lives
Dear I fear I can't recall your name
These are the best years of our lives
