Track Name: 2 seconds of soft rock
paint me a highly detailed picture of yourself at 22
4th coffee kicking in
Feel the crackling of your skin
Fleece coats and winter wind
chap lips and coughing

why do we love so fucking far north
put pressure on my palm for good luck in the snow
i see you catch the bus
your going further north

Please remember when
I sat you down and said
Take care of yourself
Foresight kissing foreheads

Oh whadda ya know
media fails to represent the variety
Oh whadda ya know
Of our human life

paint me a picture of yourself at 22
4th coffee kicking in
Feel the crackling of your skin
Fleece coats and winter wind
Track Name: warm and dry
no fear inside
my house is super wide

it’s meant for friends to hide
from the ugly outside

spread your hands side to side
keep yourself warm and dry

no laundry till today
It’s been 3 weeks hooray

i hate getting out of bed
it’s noon and my face is red
wear jammies till I’m dead
coffee buzzing in my head

no fear inside
my house is super wide

it’s meant for friends to hide
from the ugly outside

spread your hands side to side
keep yourself warm and dry
Track Name: facetime
memory is a funny thing
it comes in waves
or not at all

you tried to facetime me
i miss your face
but not your call

it's barely 7 PM here
2 exhausted 2
get out of bed

the dishes high
as heaven stars

i wonder why
i just can't start
Track Name: m'kay, thanks
don’t think I can tell
the different between the burn of whiskey
and the scalding of hot tea

don’t think that the rug
i’m standing underneath
can tell me all the secrets of the
person that I wanted to be

m’kay thanks

Thats maybe not what I wanted to hear

m’kay thanks

hold dog, daughter and loved ones near

I see the aching in your head
Its like an egg yolk
fanning out over a cast iron pan

I feel the heavy weigh of my bones
Hit the chill the way you tremble out in the cold

m’kay thanks

thats maybe the only time I could hear

m’kay thanks

hold your heart, your blood, and all your casualties dear

deer in the lights
i feel the blindest of the
green, green, green, green, green,
green flash in your eyes

hold tight
To the tightest in your chest for its the only guidance that you’ll ever get

m’kay thanks

no, you’re not the only one that I have dear

m’kay thanks

just put the whiskey on the table and leave me be right here
Track Name: potted plant
can you hear the
rain outside
I don’t want to leave but
i have to be on time

dont’t forgot to
wash the clothes
don’t forgot to
kiss my nose

can you smell the
winning streak
i don’t want to
curse it

don’t forgot to
make more things
don’t forgot to
bring your keys

eat breakfast
at denny’s
think about the time
i skinned my knees

trying to be
someone I’m not
trying to be a fool
in the parking lot

can you hear the
rain outside
I don’t want to leave but
i have to be on time
Track Name: gonna be late (again)
wake up 9 am
out the door at a quarter, no half past 10

baby now take me
(take me)
bake me
(bake me)
break bread and coffee again

baby now take me
(take me)
bake me
(bake me)
bread and coffee again

oohhhh its sunday now
fightin' that early morning monday crowd

keeping all my phone, wallet, keys in check
eat a bagel and i'm steppin' right up to the tracks

now tell me baby
(baby)
hate me
(hate me)

might be late again

now hunny bun
baby
(baby)
oh don't hate me
(hate me)

gonna be late again
Track Name: sleep sound
in my world
its dark blue

don’t really know
don't really know
don't really know

how to feel

don’t really know
don't really know
don't really know

what’s real

in my sleeping place
i hope you hear
the sound of me
turning over
the last page
of the book I kept
out for 20 days
it's overdue
dog-earred
and ragged
it seems like 20 years

don’t really know
don't really know
don't really know

how to feel

don’t really know
don't really know
don't really know

what’s real

in my soft place
i hear the sound
of a siren in
a splashing pond.
the last page
of the book I kept
out for 20 days
told me
to tell you
feel better
feel sound
feel grounded
sleep sound
sleep sound
sleep sound

sleep sound
Track Name: 7 deep breaths
took a walk today
took 7 deep breaths in
throw my hands up then
i felt complete again

last year around this time
i swear
it snowed
(it snowed)

looking up into the branches
of the tree
the sunlight foretold

me outside now
walking round with my head in the clouds

hope you would know
i miss you love
i miss you so
