Track Name: Small Investments
dead ladybugs on the ground
as we talk about
where you’re going
in a month

i was wrong to think
that you could love me more than a song
i was wrong

the flowers bloomed overnight
a month since you’ve been out of my life
i don’t miss you
no longer want to kiss you

when you left you said
“there is such a thing as a small investment”
it was cool i had
“what do i deserve?” playing in my head

and i’m glad that you’re not coming back
Track Name: Bare Minimum
a year ago, i thought i fell in love
took too long to realize you were never enough
when all I needed was a body in my bed
let you move into my life and exist there instead

what if all I wanted was the
bare minimum
my friends told me to take it slow and
i didn’t listen up

and everything seemed perfect
so i didn’t look too hard
but it all came into focus
once i’d fallen down so far



thought that i could see you in my life for good
i’m so glad it didn’t go the way i thought it would
i didn’t know i’d be so happy on my own
needed you out of my house for it to be home

i wanted to be kind to you
what else could i say?
i tried to tell you a hundred times
now i’m saying

what if all i wanted was the
bare minimum
my friends told me to take it slow and
i didn’t listen up

and everything seemed perfect
so i didn’t look too hard
but it all came into focus
once i’d fallen down so far
Track Name: Your X
i like it when you say i’m the one
the person that you want to love
you only say it when you’re drunk
i don’t know where i went wrong

i feel contempt for myself
without you next to me
and i feel okay with myself
only when i’m laying with you

you love me when we’re alone
Track Name: Patches
woke up this morning and you were gone
just another dumb-fuck love song
but there’s no chorus that i want to sing
you know me, i didn’t have the time
tore apart tea leaves to demand a sign
they said “oh jesus, did you learn nothing”

when you go quiet, the ringing in my ears gets louder
white-noise knuckles, would someone please just cut the power?
melody’s truncated, broke a string
nothing left but the echo and the screaming

oooh

it’s all a wonder, it’s all sublime
an empty locket laid into grime
is there one picture where you don’t look miserable?
my heart is stitched right on my vest
yours is locked up in your chest
beats once synced, now they’re out of control

when you go quiet, the ringing in my ears gets louder
white-noise knuckles, would somebody just cut the power?
story’s truncated, pen out of ink
every letter spelling out to someone screaming

oooh
oooh

my face is cold, like the ice in the freezer, mechanical and sterilized and clear
and your arms are strong, but they can’t hold me forever, in sickness or in stormy weather, not now not here
so give me back my old t-shirt, and give me back my name
i’m sorry that it came to this, i’m sorry that i stayed
left to your own devices, hallowed be their names
the nausea in my stomach is more feeling than you ever, ever gave

oooh
oooh
Track Name: Cosmos
i am as unsure as you
i wish i knew just what to do
after some time, it seems to be
i’m a satellite, and you’re the world to me

i saw a night sky deep and blue
i’ve breathed in air sweet and perfumed
though i’m still revolving,
i’m a satellite, and you’re the world to me

you and i who try our best
in cosmos without much arrest
so high, you’re shifting constantly
i’m a satellite, and you’re the world to me

i count my days in billions
of tiny microbursts
i’ll keep you close for billions
the sun will swallow up the earth
Track Name: High Beams
driving in my tiny car
i saw the lights i saw my life
driving up from nyc
i’m hoping they’re not out for me

and i don’t want that at all
and i don’t want to cry in my car

enter princess, hour 3
we made it out we’re cruisin’ now
put in mix 10/17
its better now, i’m laughing

and we’re all having fun in my car
and what else are friends for
Track Name: Scare You Off
if you didn’t know me
and you saw me
on the subway
what would you think of me?
would your eyes fill with intrigue?
what would you think of me?

sometimes i’m sorry
that i told you
but all i want
is to hold you
what do you think of me?
is your heart still empty?
what do you think of me?

did i scare you off?
but you’re all i want
did i scare you?
did i scare you off?

eyes a slimy green
like the hudson’s sheen
what do you say about me?
if it’s anything at all
what do you say about me?

did i scare you off?
but you’re all i want
did i scare you?
did i scare you off?
Track Name: Apple
maybe once, i was the apple of someone’s eye
maybe once, i was the apple
now it’s rotten to the core--
i know, it’s a dumb metaphor
not it’s all gone and rotted

oooh

this summer lived in taxis, lived in basement shows
this summer learned some things it wished it didn’t know
this summer left a crack of your smile on my bones
july was hot and heavy, one month in the blue
planet’s retrograde proven to be true
i will wait for rain, put the buds in bloom
i will not wait for you

i’ll keep falling, i’ll keep falling
i’ll keep falling, i’ll keep falling
back in love

september, cool and breezy on the auburn coast
orange and brown sugar, dead leaves on my toes
come october, i’ll no longer be scared of ghosts
and i will make the most

i’ll keep falling, i’ll keep falling
i’ll keep falling, i’ll keep falling
back in love
Track Name: Lakeland
i wonder if i’ll ever see you
or if tonight means we are through
i watched the cars instead of looking in your eyes
you always said i’d be too scared

but i know that
i’m finally doing right by me
and i can’t think
of some place i would rather be
why can’t we stay
here high above the city
i don’t need much
just want to feel you next to me

i asked you to leave me with bruises
as concrete proof that i had made it
the lights turned on slowly in tall buildings
i breathe in deep, ready to lose

but i know that
i’m finally doing right by me
and i can’t think
of some place i would rather be
why can’t we stay
here high above the city
i don’t need much
just want to feel you next to me

i don’t care if i ever see you again
i don’t care if i ever see you again
i don’t care if i ever see you again
and if i do, i know i won’t remember when

i don’t care if i ever see you again
i don’t care if i ever see you again
i don’t care if i ever see you again
and if i do, i know i won’t remember when
