Dirty Water
Real Friends Lyrics


If you wore your personality on your skin, no one would take a second look
You were shallow when we met and you still are
The water won't be coming down anytime soon to change that
Loneliness keeps me warm at night and that's okay with me
I'd rather be alone in this bed made for two than listen to you and your judgement

Don't act like you're better than me
We're both fools lost in this cold world
You might not fall as much as I do, but if I look close enough I can find the scars on your knees
I can find the bags under your eyes that carry too much for you to handle

I'm starting to think that yore the reason why everyone left
So stop pointing your finger
You don't even really know me, not at all
You don't even really know me

Don't act like you're better than me
We're both fools lost in this cold world
You might not fall as much as I do, but if I look close enough I can find the scars on your knees
I can find the bags under your eyes that carry too much for you to handle

I said I'm selfish, I'm a liar and I'm broken
Shit runs through my head every day that I would never tell anyone
You're just like me
The only difference is that I'm honest enough to scream my flaws in the lines of this song

I saw Real Friends live two days ago and hearing 300+ people singing the last part of this song at the same time was amazing

for anyone complaining about the constant pattern of "bony knees" and "sleepy eyes" in their songs;I think it represents his world, his reoccurring insecurities, etc.

Ally B

it represents pop punk.

Anklebited

The "bony knees" and "sleepy eyes" expressions are literal
Kyle (The bassist, he writes the lyrics) said that during the writing of this EP, thanks to all his problems he wasn't sleeping and eating too much

"We're both fools lost in this cold world", I may say "everyone". Just awesome, can't stop listening to this.

"Don't act like you're better than me . We're both fools lost in this cold world" speaks to me on a ton of different levels right now. That line hits hard.

Dean Rhodes

it actually sounds exactly like the track off of TSATPYOML EP, maybe it's the same exact recording. Not saying it's a bad thing.
