Better Love 04:06
If you could keep your distance I'll save my idealisms She knows the price on my head On the street in my crowd like you don’t care Honey how many bodies downstairs? She can’t be what boys like me need Send a letter one year after I know what that means Tell me something about your better love I heard you found a better love Do you still speak like Jesus? I have a house plant I’m taking care of Living is just better losing to me Send a letter one year after Look who's lonely Tell me something about your better love I heard you found a better love

Half Dreams 03:41
Breaking backs on the side streets With every black cat and ladder I meet My hopscotch games, my growing pains I hate to play alone Won't pay I'm mumbling home En-routes I grew up on If they can't heal my heels I'm gone Half dreams but I'm living it I'm half cut but the ribbon is tied Downtown, downtown alone Downtown, down, down and out Do what you do Can't quit my kicks so As above the same below I'll glue my sights to every vice As long as it'll hold me like she did once Not her the other one Twice removed but just as stuck on us Half dreams but I'm living it I'm half cut but the ribbon is tied Downtown, downtown alone Downtown, down, down and out Do what you do

Cut Me Out 05:04
Some friend on the phone told me that you lost it lately Bad blood on the road caught you comatose Some friend on the phone told me that you lost it lately So help us from making all the same mistakes we made in the first place I’m still trying to find out which side I want most to die How could I choose one? When it’s hard to find out which side you want most to die maybe you're both wrong Some friend on the phone asked if I was still awake Same night. Dial tone. Never spoke again Still sending one way happy holidays So help us from making all the same mistakes that we made in the first place. I’m still trying to find out which side I want most to die How could I choose one? When it’s hard to find out which side you want most to die maybe we don’t talk enough Cut me out Could you cut me out?

Make Circles 04:34
It's in the way you greet me With your silk and the jungle sounds This seems to be my new chic Getting in too deep calling out I want what I want what I want Play Julie on the balcony With your keys and clothing falling hard from the top floor I could play "In your eyes" if I didn't Burn all those tapes before I watch you make circles While he sleeps on the other side like ghosts in black bedrooms It never feels like the right time I watch you make circles, in circles So take me in the drug store while the family photos hang to dry in the red light And prove that picture perfect is how We frame what we try to hide Cause I want what I want what I want I watch you make circles While he sleeps on the other side like ghosts in black bedrooms It never feels like the right time I watch you make circles, in circles. I get so lost (sometimes) I get so lost sometimes without my pride in your eyes When I want to run away

Dating Pools 03:55
I touch a phone screen to feel like anything So does everyone I know So free and lonely So twenty-something With our dating pools shallow and long Maybe I didn’t notice that he was your kid Maybe I'm just writing wrongs With you in the bushes by the funeral home Drowning in the deep end, not again Could be another one gone Another unwanted friend Tripping through the deep end of the quickest sand Another one gone Another unwanted friend Now there's a new street that needs avoiding Another name my daughter won’t be called The list is growing across my city There's only so many postal codes All these indie-Cindys And crystal-Kennedys Make it hard to stay at home Am I just a bad seed hanging from your bed sheets? If I am just tell me I don't know Drowning in the deep end not again Could be another one gone Another unwanted friend Tripping through the deep end of the quickest sand Another one gone Another unwanted friend Tell me am I just a bad seed Hanging from your bedsheets? If I am just tell me I don't know
