friendly 03:15
i was pushed aside to give you room to sleep at night and i’m as serious as suicide when i tell you that i’m fine i say oh, sweet friendly why do you rot my teeth and bring me agony when i am weak i can’t decide it makes me want to cry it tears me up inside when you make me happy i caught the corner of a crime ive felt so removed from time and you squeezed my hand so tight it reminded me that i could die without knowing a thing about my life oh, sweet friendly why do you rot my teeth

better 03:29
hey, hey, it’s a beautiful day but i can’t seem to stay awake and so soon, i’ll be stuck in my room till the voices around me break and it gets better everyday yeah it gets better everyday i wasted all my days just to see you oh, it wasn’t long and after all that time, to be near you well i hope i’ll get along so long to the days that kept me withdrawn the days that rained on me so strong oh dear, i’ve been filling my ears with reactions i can’t escape but i think they’ll be here for a wink then they’ll vanish without a trace i wasted all my days just to see you oh, it wasn’t long and after all that time, to be near you well i hope i’ll get along so long to the days that kept me withdrawn the days that rained on me so strong

i know 03:05
you know you’re always on my mind, dear even if i neglect to make that perfectly clear see, i’m not well equipped to handle things like this i apologize if i was cruel i must have blocked out what life was before you you dust me off and got my feet back on the floor i was seeing stars under handlebars when you held my hand and kissed my cheek give me breath and morning dew give me back the evening i met you give me memories that lie, that made me perfect at one time for you i know, i know

cornerstones 03:28
wednesday mornings feel like such a drag my tired eyes see no surprises metrics, we know you're not the bad guy but if you're not shitty than what the hell am I? hating yourself is never time well spent but this low year has given me hell it sounded like a car crash on the day my father moved out of my house golden yellow hues cornerstones, all buried black and blue hating yourself is never time well spent but this low year has given me hell how could I be lost on the streets we grew up on? please, don't tell me you're saving me again oh please, don't tell me that hating yourself is never time well spent but this low year has given me hell

how charming 03:21
i’ve noticed the way that you are can squeeze all the hurt from my heart and how you appear from afar pulls me closer and closer lanky legs approached me at my stop blowing bubbles in his soda pop trying to recall what he forgot laces laying on the rocks if i fooled you to get past your gate it was only cause i was afraid and if maybe means maybe okay i could talk all day lanky legs approached me at my stop blowing bubbles in his soda pop trying to recall what he forgot laces laying on the rocks ba, ba ba, ba ba holding on, holding on lanky legs approached me at my stop how charming
