lyrics

take me higher, higher
we were something to admire, admire
but it's all gone
now i'm just tired, tired
cuz if there's no fire, fire
what's the meaning at all?

cigarettes on cracked concrete
trying to get this trauma off me
tried to close the door softly
your coming and going's got me exhausted

you're gonna be the death of me
but you're beautiful, baby
and what is life but death and beauty
vacillating from ecstasy and brooding?

losing, using, confusion
falling on my knees, contusions, illusions are foolish
you were the coolest, the coolest
but now i'm wondering if it was bullshit, just bullshit

was it bullshit?

you were the empath
i’m just impatient
to go with the flow
causes your trepidation
love is the drug
from which i'm trying to get clean
couldn’t see the truth
all i’ve got left is visine

i need a muse to inspire me
not smother until there’s no fire between us
it’s only time that you required of me
so sorry for disregarding you entirely too much
and now i know you well
you’ll fall for anybody else
crying in the stairwell
and from the highest step we fell

baby, take me higher, higher
fill me with desire, desire
but it's all wrong
and now i'm just tired, tired
cuz if there's no fire, fire
what's the meaning at all?

about

Don't do it, Neil Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

Under the alias Don't do it, Neil, Mabel Harper blends the lilting warmth of bossa nova, the groove of R&B, and the ambience of dream pop with k-pop-inspired dynamics to present her own fierce-yet-vulnerable, uniquely canny take on sparkly pop music.
