Track Name: piece of mind
Looking back, I can see the error of my ways
I can’t move forward, without moving two steps back
Perpetually lost, in a maze filled with traps
I beg for mercy, but there’s no way out
And I’m gonna need some time, just to find some peace of mind
And I’m gonna need some time, just to find some peace of mind
I love you baby, but I’m going a bit crazy
Most of these days, I’m feeling pretty lazy
Writing my destiny, with each failed song attempt
Gotta get out, of this horrible predicament
And I’m gonna need some time, just to find some peace of mind
And I’m gonna need some time, just to find some peace of mind
Track Name: pray for me
Last night I saw you at the show
We didn’t really say much to eachother
Oh that’s right, I forgot, I forgot, I forgot
That I’m alone here
Pray for me if you can
Cause I really need it now
I really need it now
Last night I saw you walking home
I turned away and went on my own
Oh that’s right, I forgot, I forgot, I forgot
That I’m alone here
Pray for me if you can
Cause I really need it now
I really need it now
And now I see you’re doing so well
That makes me feel like I was holding you back
I wish the world would swallow me up
So I won’t have to see you again
I hope that you found what you were looking for
Track Name: blue star
Blue star in the sky, watching it fly, away, to a brighter day
Blue star in the sky, watching it fly, away, to a brighter day
When you’re not around, I hear this awful sound, that makes me go, hide away, underground
Send me a postcard, send me a letter, never forget when, we were together
Send me a postcard, send me a letter, never forget when, we were together
I can hear your voice, I can hear your voice, through the echoes of time, I wonder, where you are now
Track Name: fall song
I can’t keep hanging on to you
It can’t keep going on like this
One more night, and I’m, I’m sick for you
Why can’t I wake up, from this nightmare?
I don’t care, for it at all, I think I hit a wall
And I can’t go on, I think I hit a wall
I don’t feel so strong, I think I hit a wall
So get me away from here, so the coast is clear
For you to be, in harmony, and that is something we can all agree
Like a bird in cage, fly away, fly away
Track Name: the mountain
Rolling around the mountain, I have a nice pair of shoes
The day is here, to say hello my dear
The sun is shining, like a burning daffodil
A peaceful farewell, to the horror where we dwell
Track Name: montreal
You can dry your clothes in the rain, you can act completely insane
And if you want I can help you out, if you want I can help you out
You can float inches off of the ground, you can keep on holding me down
And if you want I can lift you up, if you want I can lift you up
You can vanish into the dark, you can go drinking in the park
And if you want I’ll be there with you, if you want I’ll go there with you
You can write a hundred songs, it wouldn’t take you very long
And if you want I can let you go, if you did you would let me
Track Name: milk, cinnamon, and honey
I can’t make heads or tails of it
Buy some bananas to fill your stomach
And make some porridge to go with it
And eat it alone
I’ve been cast away from you
And now I sit in my room
Trying to write another side
For this album I’m working on
Track Name: idleness
I gotta fix my bike today
I wish I knew what words to say
Idleness can withstand anything
Doing things as fast as I can
Doesn’t get me anywhere
I gotta go do that thing today
Can’t let it fade away
Idleness can withstand anything
Track Name: plastic salad tongs
All these jobs, they kill my soul, they kill my soul
Where do I belong? I don’t know, I don’t know
Father’s day, I say, give me a hand, and say, you understand
All these jobs, they drive me insane, they drive me insane
Where do I belong? Take me away, take me away
Father’s day, I say, take my hand, and say, you understand
Track Name: honeydew
Long ago, I knew a honeydew, honeydew
Took too long, to be somebody who could be true
Long ago, I knew a honeydew, honeydew
Track Name: when
“When?” is the question, I ask of you
How long must I wait, making these little songs?
I don’t know what it’s all supposed to mean
“When?” is the question, I ask of you my dear
Like a little rainbow, I haven’t seen you in awhile
And now, I ask “When? When? When? When?”
Track Name: oh sweetness
Oh it hurts, oh it hurts so much
Oh lord if you’re listening to me, enough is enough
When will I hear you call my name?
I’m waiting for you to let me come back to you again
I’m tired and I want to hold you again
I miss you so much, I scream your name, oh
How many more nights will I spend?
How many more nights can I spend for one night with you?
That’s all I need, that’s all I need
You broke my heart and I broke your heart
But you found it and put it back together again
I haven’t found my heart, I lost it, I lost it forever
But I want a chance, I want a chance, to find another one
Oh, oh, oh, sweetness
Oh sweetness you found me, I was here all along
Oh sweetness you found me, you were there all along
I couldn’t wait any longer for this moment to arrive
And now that I’m here with you
I need to apologize, one more, one more time
Track Name: when the cold hits
It’s December ninth, two thousand sixteen, as I write you from far away
It’s negative four, but feels much colder, and the snow is here to stay
I haven’t seen you in about 2 years, and I really miss your face
And I know that we weren’t the best of friends. but I mean that anyway
And I was convinced, that she loved me, but she didn’t and that’s ok
And I keep going back, to the same old thing, but now I’m here to say
When the cold hits, you’ll realize it’s shit
When the cold hits, you’ll realize it’s shit
When the cold hits, you’ll realize it’s shit
When the cold hits
