Track Name: Swell
Babe wont you fix my broken heart? And kiss me 'till I fall apart?
I know you never liked me much but when you said it I was crushed
You and I side by side in the middle of the night
I'll ask a thousand times, it still wont make me sigh

Babe wont you fix me up tonight? I'll get a bottle and a light
and we can kiss until it's sore, until you don't want it anymore
I can use my mouth to spit you out the taste I always loved
and we'll use our mouths to spit you out it all swells up

In new dreams we never met

and in our lives we all forget
Track Name: So Three Years Ago
You pack bowls like boys in high school behind the door
I can yell over the fuzz if I try and I can be normal
After days of spinning through you in my head again
I can find peace on the couch with my head on your shoulder

After you left I stayed up all night going over it
All these things we do, you can never tell
I can mute it if I try writing down the reasons why
Lean into me say goodbye, and stay there this time

But this feeling in my gut is so three years ago
All those almost something maybes that I'm letting go
It stuck me in a rut all week two years ago
and if it's back again I think I'll just stay home

I think I'll just stay home
Track Name: At Goth Easter
I laid on the street listening to you talk
I was drunk and my eyeliner run
and the hum inside calmed it
but my heart beat fast as you laughed
and I remembered that maybe it wont be the same again
when boys and girls they get to talking, I feel nervous like I'll never understand

I was laying drunk on the sidewalk
and I wondered what you're thinking because I always fucking do
and I wish I would stop asking but I can't because it's you
and I know that you don't kiss me like you know I want you to
and that I waited to say I loved you because I always thought you knew

you knew
Track Name: Burning II
You make me nervous and I'm sorry for saying I loved you
last night I really thought I knew
between your eyes and the color of the lights
between the sky and all the things we say at night

But the words were wrong and I slurred my speech with you in my arms it's all I see

Next week I'll have it figured out for sure
back and fourth and nothing more until its sore
you're the teeth marks on my skin that bleed and stay
you're the burning on my insides everyday

You make me nervous and I'm sorry for saying I loved you
last night I really thought I knew
between your eyes and the color of the lights
between the sky and all the things we say at night

But the words were wrong and I slurred my speech touch my arms and feel me underneath or let it be cause' you're all I see you're all I see
Track Name: Your New Haircut Ruined My Life
When I'm up all night thinking of you and I
laying on my side I can feel alright
tighten up and twist
I tried it once and I'm tired of it

I watched your hands move again
I hope that you'll wanna get me alone again
"if you still feel this way in the morning you should try again"

I haven't been fun in weeks
I'm starting to think that it's just how I'll be
in the backseat, I could feel you getting over me

What does it look like when you see me?
