Track Name: Swimming
I'll give you strength if you offer
Will you give me hugs when I'm down?
I'm saving my face for your mother
Hoping that she will be proud

The ground sways I feel all the details
Of everything touching my skin
My eyes rolling back to the ceiling
The window is fighting the wind

I'll give you strength if you offer
Will you give me grief when I'm down?
I'm saving my thanks for your father
Hoping that I'll be allowed

She is swimming in her undies
Eight feet deep she's way too lovely
Waves of glitter, thick mascara
Oil slicks and seaweed hair
Show me shark attacks on TV
Planes disappear way to easily
Turning left we're spinning slowly
Arabic decals show we're home again

Maybe the plan was to meet here
But the benches seem empty and cold
So I'm saving some space on my sofa
While I wander around all alone
Track Name: Pajama Bottoms
I didn't get the email but I heard from my friends
And later at the party I felt lonely again
I kept checking on my lungs, I was losing my breathe
I walked home against a blizzard with the scarf on my neck
There was a girl in her dorm room lying face down and still
There were freshman asking juniors if they were on the pill
There were neighbors getting stoned and playing video games
I was looking for an answer but nobody came

Now I'm dealing with the shakes cause I had too much caffeine
As I stare at my computer in the library
I keep picturing myself floating in the Genesee
With all the books with all their covers
And their spines and their leafs
I'm not convinced that I've been shaken cause I know its been worse
But I haven't washed my hair and I can't read a word
But I haven't slept in days cause my medicine works
And now I'm staring at the pages and I won't let them turn

I could be wrong
But I'll find my one
In a land I don't belong
I'll find my one

Now I'm going to a club (like this city has clubs)
And I'm hoping that somehow I can make myself drunk
And float around the room and not give any fucks
And just for thirty seconds skirt the topic of love
Or the time the girl called in the middle of the night
Her voice was awful quiet and I knew she was crying
Told me how she found a kitten but the kitten had died
Right next to her in bed as she slept on her side
Track Name: Eastern Standard Time
Eastern standard time, chilly morning light, wont hit you for a few more hours
And I stay still cause I know that you're sleeping
And I stay still cause I know that you have more time than me

Eastern standard time
But the sound sounds good right now
I'm doing everything before you
Cant you tell that I want more of you?
And we'll be making lists tonight
The sea sleeps easily tonight

Eastern standard time, chilly morning light, wont hit you for a few more hours
And I stay still cause I know that you're sleeping
And I stay still cause I know that you have more time than me
Track Name: Casually Saying Bye
Red in my hair wine in my glass
I'm waiting for the pain to pass
I can't pretend that I don't notice you
But I don't move to fast

Am I the only one who never thought that this could grow to more than just a kiss?
Am I the only who's scared but has stay?
And we might only last one day
Its ok

We're on the roof its going to rain
I'm holding still in case you've changed
We're swerving down a different road again
But they all look the same anyway

Am I the only one who never thought that this could grow to more than just a kiss?
Am I the only who's scared but has stay?
And we might only last one day
Its ok

And now we're casually saying bye
I'm sad it shows up in my eyes
But I'll just lie and smile and walk away
At least for today
Track Name: Golden Era
Sometimes sad and sometimes lonely
Kids at home are feeling homely
Staring through the glass at all the clouds

Wooden floors and creaky floorboards
Traded in for concrete corridors
I know that I won't be coming home

No one knows anything
No one stops to looks at me

Hands are sticky, pockets dirty
Eating food to keep me sturdy
Hoping that I'd not be coming home

Running after trains in winter
Dusty winds and sweaty dress shirts
Hoping that I'd not be coming home

No one knows anything
No one stops to look at me
Track Name: Feel Better!
I wanna feel better
I wanna wake up every morning at 6
I wanna eat breakfast
I wanna feel like all my insides are fixed
And It'll be great when I can know
I don't have to stay at home
I wanna tell jokes and you'll all laugh and I'll just smile at the glass

I wanna get married
I want a kitchen with giant fridge
I wanna drink whisky
And stay up kissing till we have some kids
And It'll be late when we get home
But the babysitter knows
I wanna make friends with all the neighbors as they're bringing me their pies

I feel fine
Track Name: Meet Me in the Shampoo Aisle
She still has her clothes on my floor
I'm trying to figure out what that means
Sleeping in feels like its a chore
I can see her clothes in my dreams

I don't wanna stay if she's gone
And I know just how stubborn that sounds
But the worlds too big and hours too long
And I need someone to drive me around

My car is out of gas and my phones about to die
Meet me in the shampoo aisle

I'm not sad cause I don't like you
I'm sad because I can't go outside
Without feeling like my neighbors aren't real
Like their houses and their dogs are all lies
Now I'm staring at her polka dot shirt
And I'm trying hard to figure her out
And Solomon thinks that I'm a jerk
And I hope they let me sleep on their couch

I'll kiss you like I'm making fun of all the bad drivers
And we can buy some snacks and eat them in your car

My car is out of gas and my phones about to die
Meet me in the shampoo aisle
