Track Name: holly
you don’t call unless you need help with your groceries

you don’t ask to see me unless you need change for your laundry

i got you to teach me to drive standard in your car

i’ve been driving stick since sixteen – it’s just a poor excuse to see you

i lay on your bed

the pillows crush my bones

you hurt my head

but i just can’t go home

you don’t call unless you need help burning bridges

we spent the last two years in silence but yeah, come over, let’s make a blueprint

it’s fine ‘cause i know you “better than anyone else could”

that’s only true when it benefits you and you need the validation

you lay on my bed

it looks just like a throne

on christmas day i begged you to not go home

i lay on your bed

the pillows crush my bones

you hurt my head

but i just can’t go home
Track Name: loam
i dig into the ground’s loam to think, search

tugging on my veins, i try to conjure up some pretty words to say

but there’s nothing much romantic to say about how, yesterday,

i threw out your shampoo and cried all night

the truth undressed is all i can give

it’s not pretty, it just is
Track Name: little things
so here i am, alone to my thoughts

thinking about how i could have been better than anyone you loved

or talked to, or cared for

tie this noose around my neck i'll hang forevermore

but i don't think that i can go another day

without peaking my head through your window

just to hear you say that you want to spend another night with me

and we'll lay there and pretend we're the only ones alive

so they'll let us be
Track Name: by the beach
the city’s winters were so bleak and so grey when we were young

we used to hide out at your vacation home by the rouge hill pond

the squirrels raced atop your fence

we would lay down when your parents left

in that stucco place on cherry street

by the bus stop where we would meet

do you remember? i do

‘cause if the floorboards weren’t nailed down

they’d have stood up and followed you out every time you left the room

the squirrels raced atop your fence

we would lay down when your parents left

there’s a piece of you i keep with me

a piece of you i always keep

do you remember? i do
Track Name: miles away
miles away from the girl i miss and, i hate it

would you hate it if i took the next bus up to your place, or do you miss it?

when you say something funny, i try not to laugh, 'cause i hate it

what's the point of being happy?

i miss it

and i'll try, to go on day by day

but i can't, 'cause i'm

miles away from the girl i miss, and i hate it

would you hate it if i wrote a song about you, 'cause i did

and i hate it
Track Name: lakefield - school for girls
the ivy on the bricks outside of your house

stained my shirt and jeans when your dad chased me out

leave the lights on inside so i know you’re alive

i cobble together a goodbye

wait in your driveway make sure you get in alright

i see you off –

do i really have to go home?

leave the lights on inside so i know you’re alive

when they ship you off to lakefield tonight
Track Name: it's only rain
did you see what the sky looks like today?

is it any different from inside your room where you stay?

retire early to your bed

the only place with more empty space than your head

and when it storms

it won’t be flower won’t be diamonds won’t be lovers falling from the sky

it’s only rain falling from the sky

your eyes are gold from the tv screen

the only light on the stacks of magazines

the only sound in this little scene

the silent place where you’re waiting

it won’t be flower won’t be diamonds won’t be lovers falling from the sky

it’s only rain falling from the sky

it might feel like rocks

but it’s only rain

falling from the sky
