"Chase the Bitter with Lime"

Julianna Sweeney // 2019

the harder that I try

I just can't seem to collect my thoughts at night

and my arm falls asleep

before I can even shut my eyes, that's right

the sheep can bite

as of today, I'm pretty close, but not there yet

one foot in the waves, the other left on deck

so much gum I have left to chew 

and so many things I still have yet to prove

but until I do, I'll be just fine

I'll chase the bitter with lime

and maybe one day down the lane

I won't get rusted by the rain anymore, no

and I won't make the same mistakes

like getting sunburned on a windy beach day, no way

no way! (no way Jose)

as of today, I'm pretty close, but not there yet

one foot in the waves, the other left on deck

so much gum I have left to chew 

and so many things I still have yet to prove

but until I do, I'll be just fine

I'll chase the bitter with lime

"Home"

Julianna Sweeney & Zach Hess // 2018

I'm not going back

I'm letting these highway lines

sooth my brain some more

it's what we do because of people like you

we're surrounded by love

yet we're still looking in the wrong places

trying to find the forest but 

getting caught up win the trees

but I'm finding home

and I'm finding you

I'm finding home in you

shadows on the wall

things telling me we won't be anything after all

well I'm not going back

they won't keep a hold on me

'cause I'm finding home

and I'm finding you

I'm finding home in you

from the silence comes a sound

and I didn't think anyone was around

but you heard me and now I'm found

it's all clear to me now

 

that I'm finding home

and I'm finding you

I'm finding home in you

 

I found my home

and I found you

I found my home in you 

"Schism."

Julianna Sweeney  // 2019

an unexpected high that's hit an all time low

a shout into your void and a subliminal echo

2 hearts on a magnet being pulled by a string

no telling what a night behind masks could bring

you're so paranoid it makes me feel at ease

caught the bends in my blood coming up too quickly 

the rain washes away the sweat from my brow

your mind is always changing, you don't know what to say

it's always the same thing each and every day

I don't know how to keep a grip on my heart

this game has been rigged ever since the start and

I'm breaking away

maybe one day you'll see and you'll stay

you had your chance, oh

and still I was left to hang on my own

no way, no

I blow you a kiss and I'm gone 

a work of art you turned into a paper machete

now looking back I can see all the green lights dissipate

you came from somewhere out of the earth 

and turned into the light of my world

now I can see all you are is a night light

for a lost little girl

I drew the lines, you dragged me down the hall

no, it wasn't the first time you made me crawl

but I would swoon every time for your poetry

you're mind would always change,

you didn't know what to say

it was always the same thing each and every damn day

I didn't know how to keep a grip on my heart 

your game was rigged from the start and

I'm breaking away

maybe one day you'll see and you'll stay

you had your chance, oh

and still I was left to hang on my own

no way, no

I blow you a kiss and I'm gone 

people will write about the deaths of kings and queens

but this isn't one of those stories

cliche to say tragedy, no royalty in our veins

but you tried to make out with all of the fame

I'm breaking away

maybe one day you'll see and you'll stay

you had your chance with a girl like me

and I pray every night that God shows mercy

no way, no

I blow you a kiss and I'm gone 

"Charming."

Julianna Sweeney Feat. Pink Nois // 2019

comfortably impatient

the sights don't match the sound

incoherently blatant

when you come around

yeah I know, you should be mine

baby you're so so damn fine

and you feed off of my frustrations girl

this ain't like me, but you're not like other girls

indiscreetly complacent

and I ain't coming down

captivating temptation

you really got me now

yeah you know, you'll be mine

and it' only a matter of time

and you take me where I've never gone before

but at midnight you're gone and leave me wanting more

when I'm with you girl, I feel a little less bored

but I know in the morning you won't be here anymore

I tried my best to keep you around

but when I did, a shoe was all that I found

yeah, and I can see your surprise 

in my mind's eye when I call saying, "I'm outside"

you would drop the phone

pick up shoes and grab the nearest coat

or maybe you won't though the cold is chilling to the bone, guess each their own

the anxious and giddy feeling of seeing you for the first time outside

my mind and spirit

there's a faint trace of a "hey,"

but when the city makes it hard of hearing

face to face, we embrace,

I say "alright alright, I guess you hard of hearing"

man that train ride really wore me out

maybe we can walk on it

and you can tell me about

all the things we gonna do

cause the wait is finally through

king and queen, we reuniting

through this city, me and you

baby what's up
