about

I recorded this from under a cup

lyrics

"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."
