Track Name: Golden
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
Track Name: Suzie Lynn
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
Track Name: Different Shapes
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
Track Name: You're So Smart
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
Track Name: Cool Band
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
Track Name: For Jessica
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
Track Name: Hail Mary
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
Track Name: Tarrytown
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
Track Name: Marie & Me
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!"
Track Name: Grad School
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
