Track Name: two mirrors
"Hey Jess, I was just calling y'all up there just to see what y'all are doing, what y'all are up to... hope the music is going well. I really really miss you all. Yeah, call me back whenever. I'm around all day, just doing nothing at the house. Just call me."


my backpack and my boombox radio
you swore you would pay more attention
my records and my sun-bleached photos
with curled-up edges
you've got good intentions

I like the way you smile
and my grey walls start to glow
I could never promise you anything, but you
ask nothing of me 'cause you know

my closet with its folded easel
and its box of letters, and its empty beer cans
the rain drills on the hollow ceiling
you hold my trembling heart
in your permanent hands

I like the way you stay too late
and my grey walls seem to warm
I could never promise you anything, but you
ask nothing of me 'cause you know


"Hey, sorry I missed your call this morning. I think I like, woke up and it was going off and I was still asleep. It was really fine. But anyway, I was just calling you back... hope you're doing good... yeah. Probably call me tomorrow, I don't know how much later I'll be up tonight. Just checking in. Okay, bye."
Track Name: one day i'll find you (in passing)
One day I'll go
One day I"ll go
Oh, you can be sure
You won't get hurt
(One day I'll find you)
You can know
One day I'll go
(One day)
One day I'll find you
One day I'll find you

One day I'll find you
One day I'll find you
One day I'll find you
One day I'll find you
One day I'll find you

("I fucking love Avicii. Ha, I fucking love Avicii. Yes, finally, this is something I can do! What do you guys wanna do? I wanna play that song you were playing. I might have a cigarette. Guys, guys, guys!! Yeah?")
Track Name: being young but feeling old (Dream Wave cover)
being young but feeling old
eyes are brown and heart is made of gold
your mind's eye is a blank slate and
you think of life as a losing race

you try to be kind but
no one cares what's on your mind
now you wait for the end
desperately needing a friend

it's true, it's true

wanting to ask for help--
no one hears 'cause you're by yourself

(Rain falls over Chicago,
glints on the windows like tangerine skin
I got bowled over by the Hudson skyline,
tumbled down to you and asked if you would let me in!)
Track Name: Voicemail 2- you said a change would come
"A little less spicy, a little more flavorful, but still good. I'm reheating myself a bowl of it right now-- and it's been a weird day of just being, like, out of it because of my whole sleep thing last night. Well, not sleep. I've been in the computer, of course, doing needed stuff... I haven't seen anyone today. Not a living soul--"

you said a change would come
you said a change would come
you said a change would come

"Well, no, I went to the grocery. I saw humans then. And I talked to my dad on the phone today and I talked to Beau on the phone today, which was nice. It was very nice. My dad just texted me and said, "Miss you! Tell me a story!" And I was just like, "Fuck that! I'm just gonna call you!""
Track Name: Cardinals in the Window
Blindly savoring a sweet sweet taste,
walking North toward the sun
Asking, angered, a hard hard question
razor tongue cuts the endless blessings

Lord, when it becomes too much
to bear, I must be frank
Love I trust, and pain I can take
but you on your knees in the gravel driveway--
Oh, what a sorry sight!
Grief won't lose its bite

Lemon sunbeams light up the stable
a picture in your camera lens
Swollen lungs betray the eyes of wonder,
looking West to find some sense

(When I wake up in the morning,
my heart's full of your warm breath on my face
I don't know how long it's been since you last came--
What can I do? What can I do?)

Lord, when it becomes too much
to bear, I must be frank
Love I trust, and pain I can take
but you on your knees in the gravel driveway--
Oh, what a sorry sight!
Grief won't lose its bite
Track Name: 30.Highway Mercy
highway mercy,
give it a rest, my god
throw me under the bus one time
give it another shot
give it another shot

"Hey. I'm just walking to a bus to head back to the apartment. It was kind of a crazy night. I think you would be interested in hearing the extent to which there was just like, weird thing after weird thing that happened. But I think it would take longer than a voicemail to explain."
Track Name: WATCHING PLANES
(Aux Champs-Elysées,
Aux Champs-Elysées,
Au soleil, sous la pluie,
A midi ou à minuit...)

"Because the planes are taking off...and that's like, the reason it makes sense. Right. They take off one by one. Yeah. Trains... Watching trains, you--Planes. Planes. You with your wide gaze, they take off one by one? Yeah, okay. Yeah, that's how it goes. Okay."

watching planes, you with your wide gaze
they take off one by one
you'll be safer years from now, and that's all I want
you'll be safer years from now, and that's all I want

I'd buy you anything
you wanted
if I had the money
some things you get for free
are still worth something

I'd travel anywhere
to find you
if I had the time to
some days I'm happy that I'm not
right beside you

ooh, ooh ooh
ooh
this might seem hard,
but it's easy to do
I don't need anything but you!
I don't need anyone but you

("Whoooooo! Guys, STOP it!!!")
