lyrics

You don't have to stand so close
To talk to me, I swear
Tell me about your life from over there.

There’s nothing you could do or say
That could make me love you less
(Your invasion of my space
Already put that to the test)

But I still need you in my life,
Maybe just in smaller parts,
‘Cause you help me
Decide who I don't wanna be.

I hope that you can see
I know we're both on the same team,
I just need some room to breathe.

We're better friends from a distance,
Even better than you know,
And this affection will grow stronger,
But I can't miss you 'til you go,

We’re better friends from a distance,
Even more than I can say,
And I hope we're reunited
After many, many days.

Absence makes the heart grow fonder
And so I know
It's better that we go our separate ways

And I can keep the memories
Of all the best that you can be
As long as you're not here

So I mean it when I say
It's endearing when you stay away from me

I mean it when I say
It's endearing when you stay away,
I mean it when I say
It’s endearing

Drawing inspiration from mid-2000s emo/pop punk and a few decades' worth of video games, the band specializes in upbeat tunes, with prominent melodies, distinct guitars, and emotionally-charged lyrics.

The band debuted with the Glowing in the Dark EP in November 2014, and recently released The Better Friends EP in early 2016.
