I read books, he writes stories
He's so calm when I'm angry
Frank Hamilton's official lyric explanation
So on Flaws and Ceilings Lauren co-wrote the song with me. We didn’t write her verse together - I’d actually written that previous to the session.
The original lyrics were “she reads books, I write stories. She’s so calm and I’m angry…” but then, when Lauren got involved and we wrote a little bit of the chorus together, it became a duet. So we switched the words round.
