about

Moving to a different country, I've developed a strange sense of cultural resonance with this music. Some was imparted to me by my new musical community, the rest I have discovered all by myself.

Track Name: 2014, wished for Nashua, cried in Paris
This is my final cigarette
You always said we all need at least one thing to regret
And as I draw my final smoky breath
It is the closest that I'll ever be to controlling death

And please believe
That I'm just finishing the pack
I'm never going back
Though I know that I got four more to go
Yes I know that I got four more to go

I been chewing gum, trying caffeine
Can't sleep when I'm alone, but I hate the party scene
I'm not quite there, I'm in between
This is the last one and tomorrow I'll be clean

And please believe
That I'm just finishing the pack
I'm never going back
Though I know that I got four more to go
Yes I know that I got four more to go

And please believe
That I'm just finishing the pack
I'm never going back
Though I know that I got four more to go
Yes I know that I got four more to go
Track Name: 2015, after reading too much Amiri Baraka
She just want to close her eyes and sway
If you, if you, if you exercise your right to work it out
Its true, its true, its true, shout out to the birthday girls say hey
Say hey, everyone deserves a night to play
And shes plays only when you tell her no

If these walls could talk
I can feel your reign when it cries gold lives inside of you
If these walls could talk
I love it when I’m in it, I love it when I’m in it
Track Name: 2016, rediscovered The Pocket at a night club
I know
That it's taken me all this time to say girl
I'm slow
So it's taken me all this time to say girl
Tip toe
And I want to acknowledge my mistake girl
Uh Oh
And I hope that you know it's not too late

Put it in my pocket, put it in my pocket
In my back pocket
Put it in my pocket, in my pocket
In my back pocket
O O O
And I'll
Put it in my pocket, put it in my pocket
In my back pocket
Put it in my pocket, in my pocket
In my back pocket
And I'll read when I'm alone

Do you like me circle yes or no
On this piece of paper
'Cause I really really need to know
Are you gonna be my 5th grade queen
Hand it back after the second hour
Then I'll know if you're gonna be my special flower
Ooo girl 'cause I need to know

I will
Put it in my pocket, put it in my pocket
In my back pocket
Put it in my pocket, in my pocket
In my back pocket
O O O
And I'll
Put it in my pocket, put it in my pocket
In my back pocket
Put it in my pocket, in my pocket
In my back pocket
And I'll read it when I'm alone

When you kissed me on the playground
I lost my breath I had to lay down
And assess what I had seen
Then I had to write the words out
'Cause you took 'em out of my mouth
But it's hard for me to read
Out loud
Oh gee
Oh gosh

I know
That it's taken me all this time to say girl
I'm slow
So it's taken me all this time to say girl
Tip toe
And I want to acknowledge my mistake girl
Uh Oh
And I hope that you know it's not too late girl
Track Name: 2017, found west coast corduroy dreams
How could I ignore you?
Trust me I adore you
We're swimming through our dreams
Kiss me in the shower
For a couple hours
Though we're only sixteen
And sit down beside me
Don't call me daddy
Cause that's just fucking weird
Promise that you'll stay here
You and I can lay here
Until the end of time

But girl, well don't you worry about me
It ain't new to me, feeling this lonely (darling)
Girl, don't worry about me
But if you're ever unhappy
Then maybe, baby, I must let you go
Let you go

Baby now it's best here, to lay me down and rest here
Let's dream of Corduroy
Work for what you love to do and I will watch right over you
With your heart I'll never toy
And you're the other half of me
Drink and sleep and laugh with me
Take me from myself
See I'm a fucking basket-case
Until I'm able to see your face
You saved me from myself

But girl, don't worry about me
Cause it ain't new to me, feeling this lonely
Darling baby, girl, don't worry about me
Cause if you're ever unhappy, if you're ever unhappy
If you're ever, ever unhappy
Then maybe, maybe baby I must let you go
