about

A collection of sad songs recorded in one take at my parents house on a cell phone. This is probably the most pretentious thing I've ever done.

Track Name: I'll be around (2.15)
Don't wait around for me,
I'm not worth waiting.
I'll be around.
I'll be around.

I'm not prepared to lose
You now so refuse
To keep me around.
Keep me around.

I'll be around
I'll be around
Track Name: Enough (8.12)
Baby I don't know
If I'm strong enough
If I'm strong enough for you.

Baby I don't want
I don't wanna lose you
I don't wanna use you
But I'm so used to falling through.

But I'm falling for you
I'm falling for you.
I'm falling for you.
I'm falling for you.

Baby I don't know
If I can give you
If I can give you all you need me to.

And baby I love you
It's so hard to say it
So hard to explain it,
But I'm so used to falling through.

And I'm falling for you
I'm falling for you.
I'm falling for you.
I'm falling for you.

I'll be here forever,
I'll give you my always,
I'll love you forever,
I hope that's good enough.
I hope that's good enough.

I
Hope that
You'll stay here
With me always.
Track Name: Careful (12.14)
Why do you hide your fears from me?
Why don't we talk like we used to?

I've got enough love on my side
To hold you close for the rest of our lives.
So why don't you see?
Why don't you see me?
Why don't you see?
Why don't you see me?

Can you be careful?
Can you be kind?
I've gotta get you out of my mind,
I've gotta get you out of my mind.

So can you be more careful?
Can you be more careful?
Can you be careful?
Can you be careful?
Track Name: Free/happy (7.14)
When we stayed at our friends house and you climbed up that tree,
You said "no one will liberate you, boy, you set your own heart free"
And I believed you.

When I turned 17 you said "now everything will change"
So we laid out in the street and I said "I won't forget your name"
And you believed me.

And I didn't know your skin would be so soft when you kissed me,
And I didn't know my heart would be so heavy.
And I didn't know your eyes would shine so bright when you left,
But I know that you are free and you are happy.

Don't give me that face like in that bonfire in August
When you said you felt replaced and I just said that to be honest,
You'd replaced me.

So I'll preoccupy my time like in that broken-hearted winter
When you confessed that you had lied and that your heart had loved another
While I still loved you.

Can you save any happiness for me in a whisper?
Can you cover up my sins with a new cupid?
And I'll laugh at all your jokes with my heart wrapped 'round your finger,
But I know that when it's over I'll feel stupid.

Remember that night when your dog ran away
When you called me up crying and you begged me to stay
I said "the good things never last"
You said "the bad things shouldn't count"
I said "these things go by too fast,"
You said "Yeah that's what it's about"
And I said I loved you.

And I didn't know my heart would feel so small when you left me
And I didn't know my arms would be so heavy.
And it's not your fault that I woke up alone, at home again.
'Cause I know that you are free and you are happy.
Track Name: Some things last a long time (I'll try not to love you) (9.14)
I'm pouring out my heart
For a new love.
She won't be the first,
She probably won't be enough.

I'm running out of stoplights
Between your house and mine.
I'm almost out of excuses
I'm almost out of time.

You're smiling for a picture,
I'm picking at the lawn.
Your friends will all stay;
I'll wish they were gone
So we could sit on your driveway,
And we could talk like we did,
And we could laugh like we used to
And you could help me forget.

Try not to forget me,
As you laugh at my jokes
And I'll try not to love you
As you wrinkle your nose.

Some things last a long time
Some things you'll never forget.
Some things you'll always remember,
Some things you'll always miss.
Track Name: I don't know how to love you (3.15)
You say something good can work,
But I don't think that I am good for you.
And I don't understand what to do
No I don't know how to love you.
I don't know how to love you.

Tear my throat out of my neck
So I won't have to sing about you.
No I'm not all you think I can do
No I don't know how to love you.
I don't know how to love you.

I don't know why
I would die
by your side
It's alright
Oh we're all just settling

Down for the night, on our own
I don't know how
to be kind,
It's alright,
You'll be fine,
Oh we're all just settling

Down for the night,
You'll be fine,
Oh we're all just settling
Down on our own,
You're alright
Oh we're all just settling down.

Move your ear close to my mouth
So I won't have to say it so loud
No I'm not all you need, I'm afraid.
No I can't love you this way.
No I can't love you this way.
Track Name: Driving to Virginia (8.14)
I'm reading my sorrows.
I'm washing it down.
I'm driving to Virginia
So you can have me around.

Can you step out of that doorway?
Can you settle down with me?
Can you laugh with me forever?
Can you let me die in peace?

I'm lying to myself.
It doesn't feel very good.
That makes it twice this time, you know.
You always said you never would.

Can I step into that kitchen?
Can i hug you one more time?
I'm not looking for an answer [sung incorrectly]
I'm just looking for your eyes
Before I go.
Before I go.

I'm laying down my arms,
You're closing the door.
I'm burying the hatchet
But you don't want me any more.

I hope that you're doing ok,
I'm hope that you're better than me.
I hope that you don't miss my face.
I pray that you're only happy

No one wants to be forgotten
No one wants to be replaced.
But still I hope that you have moved on,
I hope that you forget my name.

Can we step out of my car?
Can we dance in the moonlight?
Can I throw away my fears?
Can we never say goodbye?

Will you smile at my answers?
Will it roll right off your cheek?
Will you kiss me through the window?
Will you whisper when you speak?

I don't think that I'll be happy.
I don't think that you'll mind.
'Cause you have other friends to love
And I have other songs to write.

So please tell me when it's over,
Say I haven't got a clue
Say it's just too messed up this time,
Say it isn't me, it's you.

I am sorry, oh I'm sorry.
I don't know what I could have done.
But you are smiling in the moonlight
And I am coming undone.
