Track Name: Be Here
the music got quiet
and my charm wore off with it
the cups are all empty
and strewn all over the carpet

i don’t wanna be here when you’re not
i don’t wanna be here
i don’t wanna be here when you’re not
i don’t wanna be here

and life gets harder in every way
all your friends get good jobs and move away
you and i got old on the same day
both wanted to leave and then stayed

midwestern winters make you hate
they lock you in your bedroom with no dinner plate
they open up the wounds that you had sworn had gone away

no one’s gonna love you
not even me
no one’s gonna love me (no one’s gonna love you)
especially not you (especially not me)

i don’t wanna be here when you’re not
i don’t wanna be here
i don’t wanna be here when you’re not
i don’t wanna be here
(x2)
Track Name: She Fell Asleep
she fell asleep with the music still playing
and all of the bad thoughts you had went away
as you tried not to wake her
while changing the record
from side b right back to side a

the scratch of a needle
the twitch of an eye
then back to the stillness
you turn out the light
there's a train to the suburbs
that leaves in an hour
you could feasibly be gone by then
but you won't

and in the morning
a new set of problems
her eyes look suspicious
you’re guilty, so you admit
that you tried not to wake her
when she would’ve rather you did

the silence at breakfast
pushes you towards the exit
you tell her you love her
you’ll live to regret it
on the way to the station
you think of her bed
you should probably go home instead
but you don’t
Track Name: Park N Ride
take the park n ride into the city
to your friend’s apartment downtown
and you tell her that you think she’s so pretty
then you waste the afternoon next to her mouth

and in the dying winter daylight
with the promise of a night
you tell her that you love her before it feels right

take the city bus to someone’s party
find it’s so typical of people you don’t know
to celebrate the existences of each other
while the other hundred people drink alone

and in the blurry warmth of company
with the fading of a song
you tell her that you love her, but it feels wrong

take the long way home
to where you started
it’s so beautiful
the clarity of night
in this bitter haze of artificial light
to tell her that you love her before it feels right
Track Name: Where I Fall
i get lonely when you’re around
i get lonely when you’re around
i get lonely when you’re around
for reasons i’ll not talk about
i get lonely when you’re around

i look sick when i’m alright
i look sick when i’m alright
i look sick when i’m alright
let’s have too much to drink tonight
oh, i feel sick when i’m alright

i am bad when i feel good
i am bad when i feel good
i am bad when i feel good
let’s do things that we know we shouldn’t
i feel bad when i feel good

i land wherever i fall
i land wherever i fall
i land wherever i fall
i’m sorry that i didn’t call you
i land wherever i fall

i land wherever i fall
i land wherever i fall
i land wherever i fall
i’m sorry that i didn’t call
