Long Winters, The - Scared Straight lyrics

Washington's on the one
I'm in the middle of speaking
And you're under the gun
Seething, leave it to the lone nut
It's unappealing in someone so young

Plaintive, you're feeling so washed up
And you mean it when you say you're done
Five lanes of freeway
But it's all gone dark
You called to say you're gonna run

Well, Can you wait?
Can you stand it?
Are you brave or are you scared straight?
scared straight?

She didn't want you to:
Speak right,
She didn't want you to:
be strong,
She didn't want you to:
act nice,
She didn't want you to:
take so long
She didn't want you to:
Call time,
She didn't want you to:
seem tired,
She didn't want you to:
leave mad,
She didn't want you to:
get so wired

Can you wait?
Can you stand it?
Are you brave or are you scared straight?
scared straight?

Maybe you belong to someone
Maybe you have finally met them
Maybe smoke belongs in the sky
Maybe I hate it when you cry

Can you wait?
Can you stand it?
Are you brave or are you scared straight?
scared straight?

You were hurt so you got hard
You were cursed and scolded and scared
You were searched for, then ignored
You want to burn the liars?
You'll set us both on fire
You're faking, so I'm pretend sleeping
Waiting for this to be fun
It's true little miss mean mini-bar guard
We're gonna have to try something new

Let me breathe
Let me breathe
Let me breathe

Let me breath fire down on you
Let me breath fire down on you
