about

written on bike rides through our midwest hometown: past all our friends houses, the cemetery, our elementary school, where we sat on the curb outside the hostess shop with honey buns after basketball practice, where you told me you loved me for the first time, where we swam in the dark.

Track Name: virgo season
you always know what you want
i gotta listen harder
when i think i know what i want
it dont make any sense
but its virgo season
and ive got a lot to do
i stack em up, and i slice em down
Track Name: laugh @ me
when i was a kid everybody laughed at me
nobody took me seriously
i wanted to be intimidating, i wanted to be scary
now im all grown up and nobody ever laughs at me
everybody takes me seriously
u think im self centered, call me ur highness, think im a dick, i guess that i am
but really im as scared of you as you are of me and i wish you'd just laugh at me
i miss when they laughed at me
Track Name: i'm bored
i'm bored cuz i don't know anybody here
you're home and i wish i was with you there
in our home, in our small home,
in our home, with all our windows

im bored, cuz i don't like anybody here
you're gone, and i wish i was with you there
in the cold, in the green cold,
in our home, with all our windows
Track Name: save me 4 l8r
you can't save me for later
you can't call me once a year
just to make sure im single
for the next time you're here




never asked you to be sayin marry me
you kept bringin it up
like what the fuck?

you can't save me for later
you can't call me once a year
just to make sure im single
for the next time you're here
Track Name: rubber band
i tie my hair back with a rubber band
it hurts but ive got nothing better
i smash my ankles inside my shoes
they hurt but ive got nothing better

ive got nothing to lose, ive got everything to prove
ive got everything to lose in you

i can't do anything right, im a spineless snail in my life

i'm doing my best, im just a mess
im doing all that i can, can you give me a hand?

i tie my hair back with a rubber band, it hurts but i dont want nothin better
i smash my ankles inside my shoes, they hurt but i dont want nothin better

ive got nothing to lose, ive got everything to prove
ive got everything to lose in you
Track Name: say ur sorry
ten years ago you did me wrong
did you even say ur sorry?
did you ever make it up to me?

well maybe you said it
but i couldn't get my stomach
off of the bathroom floor
i still needed more

you will never be able to say im sorry
enough to make me feel good
too much has passed for it to fix anything
too long to know that you should

five years ago i did you wrong
shoulda called you back
now i never can
im just a coward man

i will never be able to say im sorry
enough to make me feel good
too much has passed for it to mean anything
too long knowing i should

but im forgiving myself.
Track Name: honestly
honestly what did you want with me
i was 14
honestly what could i want with you
you were 22

im not gonna apologize just cuz i broke ur heart
seems kinda like it should be you
who's sorry


honestly



when will you say you're sorry
stop sending me your story
Track Name: once a year
it happens once a year
maybe twice but not that often
it happens once a year
i don't want you to think i think about you all the time
just when i notice you're around
like when the cottonwoods are blowing

now i know that makes it sound
like im in love with you or something
and i know that makes it sound
like im still keeping all the promises we made when we were kids
i swear im not, i swear im not
it just happens once a year
Track Name: rmr u laughin
now that you're gone
i can see where we went wrong
we all kept fucking up
guess its time to change our strut

i don't know how i can make this any better
what's done is done
i hope you know i love you still
i was just so scared of what was going on

i can see the moon
shine into your old bedroom
she came and packed up your stuff
brought you back in a box

i know we don't have much time
so im trying to change my ways
i want to remember you
in the light of your last summer days
remember you laughing
remember you always
Track Name: everyone i know lives on 14th ave
whats a kid to do?
ive got nothing on my list!
i ride through my hometown
and map the places that we kissed

i ride my bike at night
through the streets that ive been riding all my life
i keep hopin that ill end up somewhere right
but it's not mine tonight

and i keep wavin to people who don't live here anymore
i keep thinkin that i see you through your door
but its not yours anymore

what would america want me to do?
i can't do that!
Track Name: my cat likes me best
my cat likes me best
you thought i was boring
but my cat likes me best!

my friends love me best
i think im annoying
but my friends love me best!

i don't know what i do without you my friends!
i don't know where id be without you, my family!
