Track Name: I'm Okay!!
I want to sample the small sounds that escape your mouth when I kiss your neck
Play it back, repeat it back
Fall asleep and dream of it all again

We can mourn the passage of time if you would like to
But I like the way time moves when you're here
It goes by so soft and slow

I want to celebrate
I feel okay
I want to celebrate
I feel okay

If you wake up one morning
And no longer want me around
I would feel alright
Cus I'm happy just to know your first name
I'm happy to know your name
I'm happy to know your name
I'm happy to know your name
I'm happy to know your name
Track Name: U//U//U
Don't wanna think till I'm sick
(wanna hold you)
Can't sleep your in my head
(wanna hold you)
Feel your hands on my throat
(wanna show you off)
Taste your words in my mouth
(gonna show you off)

In a past life I have seen you
I spoke to you, got to know you
Gonna show you off
Your mind is golden
Your skin is glowing
But I am frozen I am nothing
Trying to keep up

Things look different now
Things look different now
Don't wanna see the world like I used to
Everything is colored softly
Everything is colored softly
Sunlight no longer hurts me

Don't wanna think till I'm sick
(wanna hold you)
Can't sleep your in my head
(wanna hold you)
Feel your hands on my throat
(wanna show you off)
Taste your words in my mouth
(gonna show you off)

So much love to give
Give it all to me
So much love to give
Give it all to me
Make it hurt slap my face
Make it hurt please
Make it hurt slap my face
Make it hurt please

Don't wanna think till I'm sick
(wanna hold you)
Can't sleep your in my head
(wanna hold you)
Feel your hands on my throat
(wanna show you off)
Taste your words in my mouth
(gonna show you off)
Track Name: Being Near You
I want everything I say to be drenched in wit
And I want to wake up somewhere new in the morning
It's a new year and I want to feel the same
Cus I like where I'm at where I am and who is with me

I haven't been able to say that for a long time, if ever
And even if you don't think so, I think your song was clever
I don't know why I trust you with my fragile frame
But it happens to work and I like being near you

I don't think about what could happen very often
And yes we are both scared but that doesn't matter
Cus I've been afraid most of my life it's nothing new
And I like being near you

And I like being near you
Even if I'm terrified of what that means
Or what it means to feel what I do
Cus I just like being near you
Track Name: Not Ashamed
VCR to RCA to TV
All I see is red, blue, green
I want to be lookin through
My 9906
Capture everything
And store it for later usage
Forget too much
My memories no good
But I got these tapes
I hope it's not too late

I'm not ashamed to admit I think about you a lot
I'm not ashamed to admit I think about fucking a lot
I think you do too
I know you do too
Let's role the tape and not forget anything

VCR to RCA to TV
All I see is red, blue, green
My mouth buffers
My mind moves
I can't keep up so I'll just keep it all inside
I think too much
Nothing comes out
Never sounds right
Why do I try?

I'm not ashamed to admit I think about you a lot
I'm not ashamed to admit I think about fucking a lot
I think you do too
I know you do too
Let's role the tape and not forget anything

I'm not ashamed to admit I think about you a lot
I'm not ashamed to admit I think about fucking a lot
I'm not ashamed to admit I think about you a lot
I'm not ashamed to admit I think about fucking a lot
Track Name: Books on a Shelf
Our problem is too many books
Stacked up on our shelves
Too many words we will never read
They will eat us alive
Slowly, oh my dear
Slowly, oh I fear
They will eat us alive

Now I see an old ghost
It calls in the dark
While I’m trying to sleep
Oh I see it standing
And it wants back in
Cus now it knows the beauty it once held
But it will eat us alive

Our books will outlive us
Those plastic bags we saved will too
We will turn to dust and ashes
We will turn to dust and ashes
Track Name: Let's Get Famous (I Need You Closer)
Let's get famous and quit our jobs there's nothing for us there
And I need more time to run my fingers over your cheeks
And over the lines that form around your mouth when you smile
And I need more time in the morning with your tired eyes

I'm no good with words I hope you understand
I grow tired of them
I let them go
I want to speak to you with my hands
Your skin is braille I can feel your thoughts

Let's get famous and move to the desert
Speak to no one and watch the sun set
Grow old and write books about it
This cold has touched my bones and I need a sunny state

I'm no good with words I hope you understand
I grow tired of them
I let them go
I need time to thaw I was frozen there
I needed you closer
I always need you closer
Track Name: Shelf Life
I wonder what my shelf life is
When will you throw me out
When will I expire
Will I ever be an optimist
Should we compare mythologies
Cus your words break me down like Cohen's
Will my bones shatter
Will my heart split
Cus I heard everyone leaves when they get the chance
But I hope you stay
I hope you stay
Cus I could follow the lines of your smile forever

I hope you don't mind
If I stick around
And make myself at home in your kindness
I hope you don't mind
if I stare for a little
I could follow the lines of your smile till I die

I've been feelin' good
trying to find something solid to hold
But all I found were sheets and air
I've been lost too long
I've been wrong so many times in my life
But god you feel so right
Now I'm up all night
Tryin' not to sleep cus this is better than my dreams
God you feel so right

I hope you don't mind
If I stick around
And make myself at home in your kindness
I hope you don't mind
if I stare for a little
I could follow the lines of your smile till I die
Track Name: Pocket Change
We are pocket change
We are bouncing off each other
What beautiful noise we make
In even our silence together

aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah
aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah

We are fractions of a whole
And when you're gone it rains
Oh god when you're gone it rains
When you're gone it rains
Track Name: Dog Dreams
Today we went to the park
Down by the river side
And we dug holes and climbed trees
Like little kids did
Before they grew up callused
And knew what loneliness is
That dog by the water is fine
I'm sure he lived a happy life

Just like I am now
And even if I wash up on shore
Bloated and cold
At least I know that I was once floating with you
And we were happy
And we were clean
And we were beautiful and kind
Well the world was mean
But we had each other's words to keep us warm

My leaves were falling off
My branches hung low
But you found a place to build a nest and call home
I'm not the strongest
Or the tallest
I don't get all the sun I need
But those leave grew back and now live happy

Just like I am now
And even if I wash up on shore
Bloated and cold
At least I know that I was once floating with you
And we were happy
And we were clean
And we were beautiful and kind
Well the world was mean
But we had each other's words to keep us warm

What did I do in a past life
To deserve your hands on my chest
Or your eyes looking into mine
Oh it all must be a dream
And that dog by the water is just dreaming too
Cus no one dies they just fall asleep
So please don't cry
Please don't mourn anymore
