Inspiration:
- the Cinnamon Challenge
- being a person who, as a kid, liked to repeat words out loud to myself until they lost their meaning
- breakups

lyrics

They said said
If you say say say
The same same word
It turns back into syllables
But I've been dreaming your name for weeks on repeat
And it still means the world to

CHORUS:
You are cinnamon in my throat
Every time I try to change the subject, I choke
I need a synonym to replace you
But all I can do, all I can do

Is keep keep saying
The same same word

And you still mean the world to me

Yes, I was on the one to leave you
But now I am the one to grieve you
This isn't the way it happened in my mind
You can leave an empty bed
But can't escape the words unsaid
Haunted hallways always on my mind
'Cause you're not mine

CHORUS:
You are cinnamon in my throat
Every time I try to change the subject, I choke
I need a synonym to replace you
But all I can do, all I can do

Is find the faith to face the truth and
Maybe I won't have to fake it through
Every disappointing gaze they gave
Pointed me back to you

CHORUS:
You are cinnamon in my throat
Every time I try to change the subject, I choke
I need a synonym to replace you
But all I can do, all I can do

Is keep keep saying the same same words
I keep keep saying the same words

And you still mean the world to me
