Track Name: Glow
everybody knows
he is not at home
where else would he go
who knows
you don't

we are all alone
i can see your toes
you're the best i know
you show your glow
Track Name: House Show
maybe i'm not like your friends
sobbing in your closet
with your clothes on again

a heaviness of higher order
you kept collapsing across the border

he's the kind of high
where he's not talking a lot
underneath the lowlights
in the freezing cold garage

i thought you talked to the reporter
she had a polka dot recorder
Track Name: Warm
i get to know
the morning light on your toes
undressed and cold
whenever i lose control

run out
so small
i never liked it at all
so sweet
do you like the silence on me

a night alone
i miss the movies and jokes
an awkward note
we talked all day on the coast

come by
so sad
remember the closeness we had
i miss
you now
the air feels different somehow
Track Name: Subaru
hello how are you
look at the daymoon
the things our families do
i get so confused
i hate your bad moods
do you hate them too
fucked up on your roof
sleep in your subaru
Track Name: Everything Else
go down on me
love you baby
my room's a mess
while we're undressed
your mom got sick
she'll die seconds
before you wake
with a stomach ache

it's cold lately
i feel strangely
about myself
and everything else
that grows and breathes
and sits on one knee
keeping me calm
until they're gone
Track Name: Sophie
i am so sorry
i'm usually nice
she takes my advice when she goes
keep it real with me baby
not like before
you know

lay me on sidewalks
alight with the night
she says that i'm right when i'm not
never wanted you to miss me
i keep going out that way
Track Name: Everything all at Once
i'm looking for everything all at once
back in the place i grew up
same body
stale hobbies
is it the rain against my arms
the crush of the dull stars
were you an alien before you knew you were
the ache that never hurts

remembering dreams riding on the bus
calling my cousin a fuck up
forget it
it's always already ending
stay up with you
till you feel good
lose the words
as close as i could be
Track Name: Everything Is Happening
you go strange
when you talk about it
what went wrong
you laugh about it
you go later on
maybe i'll come if you want

stay still
kept your cool for one day
wait till
we dream in similar ways
die off in a row
tell me slow
where they go
Track Name: The Future
you just have to go
i've seen it twice before
the light in future times
cast stagnant on your door
and i don't care if i'm small
i've seen it
i'm not upset with you at all
i mean it

lay on asphalt
the winter's moving slow
two clouds over the parking lot
i'm ancient and unknown
and do i care if you're here
i've seen this
waiting there in hope and fear
the gleam sticks
i need this
i feel it
it's flickering
Track Name: Seesaw
it knows me
came here way before you
i can't shake it and stay cool
it's coming now
it's coming out
it's gleaming all around

we'll be in your car
with the lights on
glowing in the dark
by the seesaw

are you tired
been doing this for so long
get a movie
to stay calm
i look dumb
i know no one
a faith in unknowable old love

shoot me to the stars
will you be there
i like your skinny arms
i am so scared

i know it
do you feel the snow around your toes
december's cold
the clenching fear of getting old
i can't control it
i bike to work beneath a sky so huge and white
these exaltations every night
i breath the slowest
a yelping lost out in the wind is there forever
sophie loved me i remember
did you blow it
all just seems unreal to me sometimes
Track Name: Why Didn't You
permanent distance
i'll go backwards if you stay relaxed
you can't
you say why didn't you know

big moon in your eyes
you speak slowly then you go inside
you're right
it's fine
a lifetime we'll never know
Track Name: Most Perfect Gold of the Century
i feel older now
than i'd like to be
lose the fireworks
do you forget your dreams too
i do

now it's gray outside
thinking of what you said before
in the vacuum of my life
all things appear to me the same
you too

i have a feeling
that stays in my heart
always looking so empty
alone on the subway
with one thousand animals
to tear you apart
every day you believed it's
a study in the hardness of the heart
won't you get a hold of me

i could just stay broke
and upset my family
the sunrise the most perfect gold of the century
and i can't relate to you
when i'm feeling bad
oh the boss of the planet
with the same awkward habits
oh say to me
this means something
Track Name: Outerlude from Daymoon
are we born repeating
outstretched towards the feeling
i have wanted most things
mostly light
an ocean in the sky

we have not explained it
cannot even name it
i would like to know you
know me too
you win until you lose

what's inside a moment
i remember closeness
to an absent
