    Song for You

    [Verse 1]
    Rejection's a constant, bitterness comes with age
    Once or twice a lifetime you get days like today
    And I hope no one pissed on this milk crate
    I hope no pissed on this milk crate
    Where there's no tidying up and nothing falls and no one breaks
    You can't say I'm disgusting if you don't mean it that way
    And I hope no one comes down this laneway
    I hope no one comes down this laneway
    And I woke up before the sun in the arms of a tough girl
    Heard me speaking lately
    You've heard me speaking about her and

    [Pre-Chorus]
    Last night I said, "I love you" without a hint of fear
    Last night I said, "I love you"
    Nothing exploded, no one disappeared

    [Chorus 1]
    And the realisation shatters through me
    That I'm the villain in this movie
    But I've got no script and no direction
    I just want you to let me love you
    I just want you to let me love you
    I just wanted you to let me

    [Verse 2]
    Dialogue is diluted by strangers and thin walls
    Little murmur runs through the audience the first time he calls
    But you hang up and a sinking feeling falls amongst the crowd
    Someone whispers to their wife
    "My God, what's she doing now?"
    "My future never really mattered much at all"
    I mutter to you down a telephone lying on the bathroom floor

    [Pre-Chorus]
    And last night I said, "I love you" without fear
    Last night I said, "I love you" and I disappeared

    [Chorus 1]
    And the realisation shatters through me
    That I'm the villain in this movie
    But I've got no script and no direction
    I just want you to let me love you
    I just want you to let me love you
    I just wanted you to let me

    [Bridge]
    And all I think I'd need to cast off insecurities
    Is for you to write something for me
    Like I write for you incessantly
    But I don't live in your mind the way that you do in mine
    And my feet stick to the floor of the shower
    But we get evicted in three-quarters of an hour
    And you rub papaw on a new tattoo and say
    "One day there'll be a song about you"

    [Chorus 2]
    One day there'll be a song for you
    One day there'll be a song about you
    One day there'll be a song for you
    One day there'll be a song about you

    [Post-Chorus]
    And I know that you hated me that time
    But I've made up for that now, haven't I?
    Soaked in spotlights
    Spitting vitriol without the corresponding kind

    [Chorus 2]
    One day there'll be a song for you
    One day there'll be a song about you
    One day there'll be a song for you
    One day there'll be a song about you
    One day there'll be a song for you
    One day there'll be a song about you
    One day there'll be a song for you
    One day there'll be a song about you
    One day there'll be a song for you
    One day there'll be a song about you
    One day there'll be a song for you
    One day there'll be a song about you
