Golden 03:07
Your makeup can’t hide your dirty mouth Your gold hair does so well You just it pull it up and you’ll never pull it back again So you just tried and failed, then tried again Your gold hair stuck so well So you chopped it off and you'll never grow it back again And it grew Ew Just like you Ew That gold hair stuck and it stuck to you

Suzie Lynn 03:05
Susie Lynn plays like a violin She always knows my thoughts and everything I’m thinking Every man, she couldn’t understand They don’t make ‘em like her Strong-willed and so innocent But how will she know if she is in love when all that she does is break your heart? Suzie Lynn stands like a mannequin She always knows my thoughts and everything I’m thinking When she moves in, perfectly eloquent I don’t think about her thin bones and her sweet soft hands Suzie Lynn Chocolates and peppermint I don't think about her chapped lips and steel city hips

You see the world in a different shape You go along just to count the ways You hit a wall every single day You've got a lot of things you want to say to me You've got your small bills you’re going to pay Stuck to the wall, you want to run away You've got your mother and the month of May You've got a lot "things" so let them sway Stick to me You'll be free, baby I don't want to let you down I only want you like you were back then You can't change a broken wing that falls apart at you You see the world in a different shape You go along just to count the ways You fall in love every single day You've got a lot of things you want to say to me

Hey love, you’re always on the run You never followed me my dear That’s why we fell apart that year They say love, it never becomes fun Until you swallow every bitter pill and let it go to hell Do you remember? Or is it too far gone? Are we just too far gone? Hey Lucy, do you remember? Or are we too far gone? Are we just too far gone? Wait love, you’re always on the run You never follow me my dear That’s why we fall apart by year You can’t fake love until it becomes fun You just swallow every bitter pill and let it go to hell

Cool Band 02:16
You had a really cool band But you were all pretend You're singing about running away I could never do it again So all you really cool bands I find you all pretend You’re singing about nothing but heartbreak I could never be like them Sing away In cities that aren’t far away Songs that won’t stay Or feelings that are dark and gray Loosen your coat Stay a while, don’t fold Don’t catch a cold You're too far away from home To ditch all your hope and go home You had a really cool band But you were all pretend

For Jessica 03:55
You came from California And lost that western charm All the things you thought you loved there Became the "things back home" They gave you shit for smilin' And you just laughed ‘em off Got hitched and moved to England Where you became the queen You never could quite miss him When you broke his heart He always hoped you'd come back But you just ran so far No no no You just left him for dead No no no You just left and laughed him off Back in California You made your friends all mad They gave up when you moved out They just couldn't understand They gave you shit for leaving And you'd just leave again Back with your man in England So you just can't be seen

Hail Mary 03:00
It’s a whole new Christmas year Your summer song singing in my ear Cherry shines and blinking lights The way we sprawled across your porch at night Anything you wanted you could be in life Could you just drive home and meet at the beach tonight? Could you? Could you? It’s a whole new Christmas year Your summer song ringing in my ear I hope this city knows you mostly lied I hope somebody holds you close at night Hail Mary full of grace This holiday feels out of place

Tarrytown 03:21
You're right We’ll find it You were driving on the wrong side We'll find it Always driving on the wrong side In time We'll find out We were waiting at the wrong time We'll find out We're always waiting at the wrong times And I will say how you're on the wrong side again Your windows My eyes closed The snowflakes on the upstate lake This town knows that we've all grown tired and numb So let's just go Don't let this be the last time we drive to Tarrytown Don't let this be the last time we fight for Tarrytown
9.
Marie & Me 02:28
Marie, don't you see All the adultery in our family tree? Good grief, let me be I’ll call you back at quarter to three So don’t scream Everyone’s got something to see So Marie, just leave I’ll keep you between these streets and me Marie, don’t scream I’ll call you back at quarter to three Don't scream "no!"

Grad School 02:41
Grad school made your friends die You can’t laugh if you don’t cry You grew up wishing for daughters Instead got luck like your father All bent up and tongue tied You can’t win if you don’t try You grew up wishing for daughters Instead got luck like your father Loved her so much you lost her For extra credits and law books
