Track Name: time2time
i want to relive certain moments
impractical yet, i don't want to forget
the soft parts of you that took me by surprise
weary face pressed against your looney tunes pillowcase
cross-legged and uncertain conversation on your bed
nervous fingers brushed up against my knee
fumbled words and blushing cheeks
i think of you from time to time
you think of me from time to time
it's no big deal, we toe the line
between your state and mine
it's no big deal, feels fine
just to think of you from time to time
Track Name: what is a friend? how do you get a friend? how do you keep a friend?
i have so much love to give
in this strange city in which i live
can't remember how to cultivate
whimsy and wonder these days
so if i wrote you a letter
would you write me back?
how do we hold on to friends?
spread across the map
i'm nostalgic for everything
every diner trip and river dip
basement shows and split cigarettes
how do we hold on?
as our worlds expand
thumbtacks on the map
for every good friend i wish i had at hand
Track Name: oh wait, nvm
always stare a little bit too long
at people who look a lot like you
a doppelganger for everyone that i love
who i left back east
old friends, perfect strangers
it's all the same familiarity i miss
worry that i need distance to appreciate everyone i knew
home is fragmented
this is know
swear i take some of it
everywhere i go
always stare a little bit too long
at people who look a lot like you
Track Name: headfirst (instrumental)
Track Name: brick city
i remember summer
paths cut straight through the woods
watching thunderstorms roll in
across the river at dusk
and you
and you
i remember summer
humid, humming city streets
long nights spent on the patio
star-shaped christmas lights aglow
and you
and you
i remember summer
beer and sparklers in the yard
fireworks above the rooftops
brick city homes we regard
and you
and you
i remember leaving
life in boxes in the trunk
best friend cranking up the stereo
a whole country between me
and you
and you
