Track Name: 29 days
(buy me deck chairs and ill come coming across the ocean
you can meet me on the other side
we'll take a train back home together
then we'll sleep in in our bed with the cats forever)

29 days till i touch your face, till i touch till i touch
so i imagine the shape of your skull in my dreams last night
made me feel a little better

the cats they came prepackaged with their names
and they tie us together, though they attack each other

oh and it just goes to show
oh and it proves you never know
when something swell comes along quit acting stupid
you dont have to prove it, i already knew it

knew it because no one believed in true love
till it occurred to you the nicest thing that was ever done for you
was when i cleaned your kitchen and did your dishes
you bought me dumplings you were jealous of an old
acquaintance

so buy me deck chairs and ill come coming across the ocean
you can meet me on the other side
we'll take a train back home together
then we'll sleep in in our bed with the cats forever

oh and it just goes to show, oh and it proves you never know
when something swell comes along quit acting stupid
you dont have to prove it, i already knew it
Track Name: perfect apartment
you built me a box to occupy the summertime
you built me a box to keep the summer inside

this is not my perfect apartment
this is not my perfect apartment

even though i found those bags in the backyard
they dropped from above for lack of a better
you say wait for me when theres a problem
theres always a problem for you to build a box for

this is not my perfect apartment
this is not my perfect apartment
cuz we need a new bed frame

and when my ascension comes will you be there
to see me off to a better world
cuz poetrys coming up short and i need silence
just to make a coherent sentence

cuz this is not my perfect apartment
Track Name: zoe
you only eat blueberries and youre afraid of other children
well you like to have your hair brushed and you sleep
in public places what will you look like when youre older
will you remember what it felt like being oh so young

the glass is always slightly empty on an oatmeal bender
what does it look like at six am not being tired and
when we're older will you still think im the best companion
the one with the prettiest frown

and its hard enough already without wondering whats it all for
by the time you think we'll be ready this'll all be gone
and how many times have we lived
and how many of those times did i cause you pain
by the time you think we'll be ready this'll all be gone

dont you like me better this way
my head is always clear but
am i in control of my astral body

you will not eat what they feed you and that
is exactly why i respect you lets
move somewhere where its always winter
so we wont have to say over and over that
winter is coming winter is coming for half a life span
winter is coming for us

dont you like me better this way
dont you like me better this way
my head is always clear but am i
in control of my astral body
Track Name: getting married
i know youll be there
when i wake up in the morning
but i still have dreams about her
and you still sing songs about the way it would be

and i want you to write your songs for me

cuz strindberg told me getting marrieds not
all its cracked up to be and the books on the shelf
are arranged by the authors whos friendships id like to see
and every night you tell me you know that its
hard to be a girl in this world ive got too many
feelings to keep in one basket they all keep breaking
a tisket a tasket

but when youre staring across the room
and someone is blocking your view
they tell they dont blame you i dont care if you stare

cuz i want you to write your songs for me

i know youll be there when i wake up in the morning
cuz youll wake me up when you leave and if
we always were together then we wouldnt wanna be

thats why
i want you to write your songs for me
Track Name: nothing helps
in the winter we still go outside
to turn our toes blue while we stand
in lines

and i would stop feeling so ungrateful all the time
for being alive
and i would take pills that would make me feel better
and i would do yoga and eat vegetables and fruit
oh oh
but some days nothing helps

theres a line between being alive it seems
we lied on the floor and watched the ropes
move the curtains
and every day you tell me itll all be okay
if i just get up and move around

but the ropes moving me were all cut
and the lights all went out when the people all left
and theres nothing left theres nothing left
theres nothing left

and i would stop feeling so ungrateful all the time
for being alive
and i would take pills that would make me feel better
and i would do yoga and eat vegetables and fruit
oh oh
but some days nothing helps
Track Name: where is my boyfriend
you said you could take a lunch break any time youd like
and now ive given up on all the sweetness of the vice i like to do
like getting black out wasted on a wednesday night

sneak up to the catwalk and we'll watch
dangling our knees above the orchestra
and sometimes sobers kind of nice

well i lost my lover on the long island railroad
now theyre burning pennsylvania station to the ground
where oh where is my boyfriend
oh where oh where is my boyfriend
please tell me hes coming home

cuz i dont like your attitude too much
and everything you do is all about you

and you know these days are getting hard
i feel like ive laid down almost every card
and sometimes sobers half as nice

well i lost my lover on the long island railroad
now theyre burning pennsylvania station to the ground
where oh where is my boyfriend
oh where oh where is my boyfriend

please tell me hes coming home
Track Name: colder weather
colder weather comes and we're not sick of each other yet
through the changing seasons my fondness for you grows
around a trellis thats diamond shaped and hard at the edges

we're not sick of each other yet

dont tell me i dont wanna know how my face makes you feel
i wish itd melt sometimes and the puddle would
pool at our feet where the reflection is a blank blue canvas
a picture of the sky

fever dreams they come and go
and just because i say that its ok
doesnt mean you have to go and tell me anyway
and we're not sick of each other yet

dont tell me i dont wanna know how his face makes you feel
id like to wipe it from my memory that sad black hole youre swallowing
its disgusting thats disgusting you disgust me

colder weather comes and we're not sick of each other yet
through the changing seasons my fondness for you grows
around a trellis thats diamond shaped and hard at the edges

and we're not sick of each other yet
