Track Name: Tiny Planets
spend the night in the crook of your arm, i held too long and now he’s gone. lose my cool in the heat of goodbye but I’m not wrong, i can’t be wrong this time//you’re the reason why i can never hide. lying side by side, this is worth a try.

tiny planets i said too much, between yr guts and my bad luck. but maybe this time you’re watching me too, nothing to do but i really think i like you//you’re the reason why i can never hide. lying side by side, this is worth a try//impending atrophy, this is killing me. say you’ll stay with me. say you’ll stay with me.
Track Name: Nowhere to Be
spend an afternoon on freaking out or staring at a screen.something dull to cut my teeth on. i try to tell you i’ve been dying here, but i can’t put it into words. you’re not listening to me//nowhere to be and I wish you could see me now. i’ve got time. you’re always on my mind.

so what if it’s not working, i’m a jerk, and you’re just hanging out? we aren’t getting any younger. and now that my head’s aching, crying’s taken all my pride away, if i listen close i’ll hear you breathe//nowhere to be and i wish you could see me now. i’ve got time. you’re always on my mind. seventeen didn’t mean a thing to me. i’ve got time. you’re always on my mind.
Track Name: When Morning Comes
winter turns to spring and i get tired, but i never wanted to fall asleep on you. night turns into day and i lie awake, anticipation and vain determination//i’ve been waiting for you for far too long.

and every time you go i feel a pain. you walk out that door, leave my heart on the floor. and i feel like this is happening the same. i can’t speak for myself when the words feel like hell because i’ve been waiting for you for far too long. and i’m always wishing you good luck when you’re gone//and i keep trying to fit in with you where i don’t belong.

and i have dreams of how i wish you were. you put your arm around me and tell me that you’re happy. so until then i won’t tell you what’s wrong. i’ll be fine tomorrow but for tonight please don’t go//i’ve been waiting for you for far too long. and i’m always wishing you good luck when you’re gone//and i keep trying to fit in with you where i don’t belong.

my heart’s sinking, you’ve been drinking, my tears will be dry when morning comes/
my heart’s sinking, you’ve been drinking, i can close my eyes when morning comes.
Track Name: Clean Jeans
you take the same walk home from school everyday and i’m staying inside watching tv and hiding away. you got a death wish. that’s not my problem. whatever/so what if i’m boring. i like it that way.

you’re lookin real clean in your jeans and it’s making me sick, and i haven’t showered since tuesday and my shoes are too big. i don’t give a shit. maybe that’s my problem. whatever/so what if i’m lazy. i like it that way.

you’re jerking off to al Jazeera and making your bed, and i could be at crossfit like you but i’d rather be DED. i’ll say it first: i think you’re the worst. so what if i’m young? you’re no fun and i hate you the most.
Track Name: Where Are You
it’s all in the way you are. it’s all in the things you do. why don’t you tell me again? whatever happened to you?

hey, where are you, where are you? when, when you need you, when you need you. you don’t know where you are. you don’t know.
Track Name: You're So Sorry
falling down again, i guess my knees are weak. you laugh at me till we can’t speak. we both come around but it’s always too late for these fragile things to tessellate//my heart, my heart, my heart, my heart. your heart, your heart, your heart, your heart. these empty promises will fade. we’re both so sorry everyday.

and now in my indifference i recognize my salty words, your tired eyes perpetually drifting to the heart of things. but we just dance around them and pine for spring//you fall asleep right next to me, i laugh it off, don’t make you leave. you lied to me but i’m alright. turn out the lights and say goodnight.

and i’ve thought about how different everything would be. it’s not worth it to get so attached to me. and i was too afraid that all of this would end, but i love you now. i loved you then. //
my heart, my heart, my heart, my heart. your heart, your heart, your heart, your heart. hold back these words we mean to say. we’re both so sorry everyday.
Track Name: I Liked You Best
counting the days as the months disappear, slip back, forget you should be here. it’s too easy for me not to say. and i couldn’t help but notice that you and me are spinning way too fast to stop, take a breath and close my eyes//and it’s a simple kind of silence that falls between us now. we stared at cracking walls as the ceiling tumbled down. and i think it hurts more than i can say, so i won’t try.

this is your pride, i’ve given you nothing but time. gone so quickly, when did you stop missing me?

dangling legs and feet precariously avoiding your conscious. whatever helps the year go by. and i’ve been thinking about all the holes in my shoes and tears in your sweater so, so what if you’re not coming back?//and it’s a simple kind of silence that falls between us now. we stared at cracking walls as the ceiling tumbled down. and I think it hurts more than i can say cuz you know what you’re doing.

i was on your side. maybe you were never fine. i’m your regret, but i liked you best.

i liked you best.
you made this mess, but i liked you best.
Track Name: Sunchokes
tiny room 8,000 miles away, crushing on a wasted saturday. now i don’t have anything to show. i couldn’t sleep so i’ll go home. now it’s a new year, guess i didn’t notice. breathing heavy, you cloud up my eyes. isn’t anyone to sympathize. i didn’t know you like i thought i did. you never change but i sure did, now when i come down i come down hard//cuz it took me three long years to let go of you and your hold on me, and now i’m back in ohio, where the sun chokes down, always getting the best of me, and these pretty thoughts always slipping away from me.

if the city disappeared today, plastic flowers, bow my head and pray. as long as you’re the only thing i have, i guess i wouldn’t feel so bad if it’s a broken heart or an unmade bed. i can be with you and still feel strange, and i don’t think i like how things have changed. i thought that loving you would be enough. i couldn’t sleep so i grew up, now i’m in love with everyone//but lately you’re the only one who can make any sense of me and these pretty words, always slipping away from me, but i figured you out, and now i’m back in ohio, where the sun chokes down my throat, with the sunchokes down my throat.
