All my best friends have anxiety And they’re all the best friends They always try really hard To show me they love me Cuz they can’t always come around All my best friends get sad sometimes But they’ve got the best laughs I can’t always make it happen, but when I do I feel like the luckiest kid All my best friends have been treated bad I want to fill them up with smiles! I always try really hard to show them I love them cuz I can’t always come around

I wanna bring you flowers But every time I try they wilt and die Don’t wanna waste your hours Don’t wanna be that guy Don’t get me wrong When i look right at you And you say something nice I have to look away because There’s sun spots in my eyes I want to wake you up real nice But I bump into ur head And chip a tooth I just want to write a song for you But im pretty green to tell the truth But I am having good dreams about complete strangers Suddenly my life seems A bit less full of dangers I want to take you someplace nice But i dont think i can drive Its been awhile I wanna take your picture but Last time that I tried I missed ur smile Cuz youre sliding down the bannister Youre such a silly guy I just want to do right by you For lighting up my life.

Libertarian 03:26
I don’t know why I’m still your friend Matt’s probably right I shouldn’t be Cuz you’re a libertarian and you’ve been so mean to me But your girlfriend thanked me She said you were listening I know I’m supposed to be mad at you but after all this time, I can’t muster it You know my dad had a friend like me and I’d be glad to be holly Cuz I’m grateful as hell for her grateful as hell! But I don’t think I would be me And I don’t you would be you If we’d never been friends If I’d forgotten But I was proud of you And I know you were proud of me too

Someday when we’re both really old I’ll see you on antiques roadshow I hope you get a lot of money for all the shit I know you’ve been hoarding and the guy who appraises the posters will be long dead And that girl who knows so much shit about sports Will be feeding the worms and You’ll still be alive Kickin it at 85 I’ve just got a hunch That you’ll be dressed to the nines I hope that the next day I can call you up to say thank you For watching that show with me when i thought i was dying And guessing the prices for hours on end every sunday night And talking about what we would do if we had all that money Cuz i was freaking out But you helped me out I was going thru some shit And you were so fucking patient So i hope that i see you there in 2050 Maybe theyll be looking at mark’s dvds And who knows what the future will hold But im gonna believe Ill see you on antiques roadshow someday baby

Carry U 01:47
You’re just a speck in the sky! and I’m buried half underground Won’t you cover my eyes with that glittering bone dust And when the wind picks up it’ll fly right into the crater Oh back to the beginning Back to the start of the earth I just want you to know I would carry you across the country If you asked me tomorrow Or if you asked me today I would fly down the back roads to you You’re such a treat to me And I’m far off the edge But I believe in the good intentions Of the universe at large I know there’s no one in charge But it all seems to work out in the end

I was braiding a strangers hair at a show and i missed keaghan braiding Sammy’s hair on the cabin floor Lizzy was singin and I was playin my guitar it was jo jo I was waiting in line at the grocery store and I missed Molly stealing donuts on our lunch break waiting for josie, kissin some guy in the parking lot but that was before Did they know that I was all a glow Or did I laugh too much cuz I was actin tough I remember you do you remember end of summer you sleepin over I remember you do you remember in the winter, we all sat with her Did they know, that he would stoop so low was I the only one thought we could be young how could we know, how far it’d go just cuz she laughed so much, we thought she was tough

4 U 03:37
when we were kids you said When I sang it was Like I was praying Since then I’ve been Singing for you I was rooting for you I was rooting for you I was rooting for you You let me down Don’t worry I’ll still be Singing for you Don’t worry I’ll still be here Cuz it’s been too fucking long That I’ve been singing for you To give up on you now I’ve gotta give up on you now I’ve gotta give up on you now I’ve gotta give up on you now

My friend dan said I know you’ve got it bad You’ve got a light and I want to reflect it back Cuz every night last week last we broke into the pool I was nervous and weak trying to act cool But if you’re going swimming then I’m jumpin in You’ll be the ghost to make my summer head swim And oh my American pride needs shining up So let me down real easy In the shallows where your light is reflected I can feel it funny feeling again Half dead half dog in the summer fog I followed you what else could I do And I said go easy babe but you did me in I’m feeling queasy guess that I’m alive again My friend dan said I know you’ve got it bad You’ve got a light and I want to reflect it back

I know a clumsy handyman A real goon doin their best Heart filled up to the brim Toolbox just the same Picking my nose in the freight elevator I think security saw I hope they laugh And they think kindly of me The next time I walk cross their floor I’ve got a crush on The cute security kid One time i saw her out of uniform Now when I see her I blush Picking my nose in the freight elevator I think security saw I hope they laugh and they think kindly of me The next time I walk cross their floor Thanks for believing me When I said I could do it on my own Everybody double checks But I know you saw me on camera When I needed help Picking my nose! In the freight elevator! I know security saw I hope they laugh and they think kindly of me The next time I walk cross their floor
