about

This album is a last chance for some of my early songs to see the light of day. I re-learned them, and in some places re-tooled them. Overall, I enjoyed remembering them, and the years surrounding them. Mostly though, I look forward to not having to remember them as I have for so long, for fear of losing them.

Track Name: Emily
It's a sad day
To waste away
And a sad thought I ponder
Figurines dancing
In the rain
Little fists of wonder
And Emily sits and
Taps her toes
To the sound of her heart breaking
But somehow
She's always been
There for me

Emily says she loves me
But no the way you think
And somehow
We're running on the brink
Of destruction
And I hold her smithereens
In the palm of my grasp
Gotta put them back together

It doesn't feel much
Like a Monday
Doesn't feel like afternoon
Doesn't mean
I wanna be here
Doesn't mean I wanna go
And I hope it's still
Raining outside
It's always so cold in here
Yeah it's always
So Cold
So Quiet, So Weird, So Queer

Emily says she loves me
But no the way you think
And somehow
We're running on the brink
Of destruction
And I hold her smithereens
In the palm of my grasp
Gotta put them back together
Track Name: 2 Minute Warning
I guess I'm hung from you again
I don't know how and I'm not sure
Quite when
It all happened

And it seems that we both have changed
You come around but you're not the same
As I remember
I remember you

I've been thinkin
I've been thinkin
Thinkin
About you

I get the phone from miles away
2 minute warning i know i cant sate
Forever
But I'll wait forever

She's tall as earth with her eyes wide open
I got the girl next door on the phone
And shes
Coming home

But it's lonely in October
And July is around the corner
And everything I've ever loved
Has just walked through my door

I've been thinkin
I've been thinkin
Thinkin
About you
Only you
Track Name: Break
Break
Don't touch me
Cause I'm awake
You shouldn't be here any more
You're a fake
You never loved me
My mistake
I should have left you years a go

When you
You were talking from the corners of your mouth
And you
Never whisper "never shout"

Stay
Cause I'm leaving
Any way
I'm still standing by the door
Just fade away
Cause it'd just be better
And you know that it's late
And we've been through this before

When you
You were talking from the corners of your mouth
And you
Never whisper "never shout"

Now your running out of straws
So your grabbing for air, there's nobody there

Cause you, yeah you
You were talking from the corners of your mouth
And you
Never whisper never, never ever
You yeah you
You were talking from the corners of your mouth
And you
Never whisper "never shout"
Never whisper "never shout"
Never whisper "never shout"
Track Name: Over and Out
How do you sleep
When we're as thick as thieves
Up to my neck in sheets
I'm burning up
I'm burning out

Where do we run
Nothing we do is fun any more
I think I'm done
I'm over and out
10 - 4

I thought you'd waste me if I ran
You thought you had me in the palm of your hand
But I wanted you to know
I'm not coming home
Today, tonight, or tomorrow

Would it help you to breathe
If I were to pack up and leave
Cause the things I've seen
Leave me sleeping on the couch
This aint working out

And your helicopter tongue
Always spinning around what's wrong
I think I'm done
I'm over and out
10-4

I thought you'd waste me if I ran
You thought you had me in the palm of your hand
But I wanted you to know
I'm not coming home
Today, tonight, or tomorrow
Track Name: Even Then
I felt the rain again
Running down my chin
Screamed to the world again
That I am not afraid
So leave me a lone

We will never be the same
I could see it on your face
Even then

Crawled to my bed again
I think it’s sinking in
You had your big scene
And exited stage right
To get away from the spotlight

We will never be the same
I could see it on your face
All the shame
And disgrace
You can never take it back
I'd never replace it
Even then
