Track Name: texas reznikoff
it's beautiful out today
i wish you could take me upstate
to the little place you would tell me about
when you'd sense that I'd want to escape

texas is a land-locked state
it's a little bit far away
from the water, from the home that I've wanted to make
it somehow, in the city, you make it there and you make it
anywhere, anywhere,
but i've been anywhere and it's not what I want
I wanna be still with you

you keep your socks on in bed
keep our hearth warm
"see the trees' shadows lie in black pools in the lawns"
you're the breeze in my austin nights
you're the breeze in my austin nights
you're the breeze in my austin nights
Track Name: townie
there's a party and we're all going
and we're all growing up
somebody's driving and he will be drinking
and no one's going back
'cause we've tried hungry and we've tried full and
nothing seems enough
so tonight, tonight,
the boys are gonna go for
more more more

and I want a love that falls as fast
as a body from the balcony, and
I want a kiss like my heart is hitting the ground
I'm holding my breath with a baseball bat
though I don't know what I'm waiting for,
I am not gonna be what my daddy wants me to be

smell that, it's wet grass, and smoke in my hair
I think I've had enough
but he wants a finale and I came prepared
and we're not going back
and I've tried sharing and I've tried caring
and I've tried putting out
but the boys boys boys keep coming on for
more more more
and change change change is gonna come, but
when when when?
Track Name: first love / late spring
the black hole
of the
window
where you sleep

the night breeze
carries
something sweet
a peach tree

wild women don't get the blues
but I find that
lately I've been crying like a
tall child

so please hurry leave me
I can't breathe
please don't say you love me
胸がはち切れそうで

one word from you and I would
jump off of this
ledge I'm on
baby

tell me "don't,"
so I can
crawl back in

and I was so young
when I behaved
twenty five

yet now I find
I've grown into
a tall child

and I don't wanna go home yet
let me walk to the top of the big night sky
Track Name: francis forever
I don't know what to do without you
I don't know where to put my hands
I've been trying to lay my head down
I'm writing this at 3am

I don't need the world to see
that I've been the best I can be, but
I don't think I could stand to be
where you don't see me

On sunny days I go out walking
I end up on a tree-lined street
I look up at the gaps of sunlight
I miss you more than anything

I don't need the world to see
that I've been the best I can be, but
I don't think I could stand to be
where you don't see me

and autumn comes when you're not yet done
with the summer passing by, but
I don't think I could stand to be
where you don't see me
Track Name: i don't smoke
I don't smoke
except for when I'm missing you
to remember your mouth, how it
tasted true
and I don't smoke
except for after I've held you, baby
being with you
makes the flame burn good

so if you need to be mean
be mean to me
I can take it and put it inside of me
if your hands need to break
more than trinkets in your room
you can lean on my arm
as you break my heart

I'm what's left of when we
swam under the moon
now the rest of my days are just
waiting for when
you come down and tell me
I was meant for you, baby
being with you
makes the flame burn good

if you need to be mean
be mean to me
I can take it and put it inside of me
if your hands need to break
more than trinkets in your room
you can lean on my arm
as you break my heart

just don't leave me alone
wondering where you are
I am stronger than you give me
credit for

if your hands need to break
more than trinkets in your room
you can lean on my arm
as you break my heart
Track Name: jobless monday
it's a windy afternoon
can't afford to buy my food
or the drive I need to go
further than they said I'd go

he only loves me when
there's a means he means to end
oh I miss when we first met
he didn't know me yet

so take me out baby
makes no difference where we'll be
as long as we're out in the sun
take me out baby

take me out baby
doesn't matter where we'll be
but please under the light of day
take me out
take me out
take me out baby
Track Name: drunk walk home
I will retire to the salton sea
at the age of 23
for I'm starting to learn I may never be free
but though I may never be free
fuck you and your money
I'm tired of your money

and I sit on the curb 'cause it's the prettiest night
with no one else in sight
you know I wore this dress for you
these killer heels for you
see the dark it moves
with every breath of the breeze

(aaaaaaaa etc)
Track Name: i will
I will take good care of you
I will take good care of you
everything you feel is good
if you would only let you
i will wash your hair at night
and dry it off with care
I will see your body bare
and still I will live here

so stay with me
hold my hand
there’s no need
to be brave

and all the quiet nights you bear
seal them up with care
no one needs to know they’re there
for I will hold them for you

‘cause all I ever wanted is here
all I ever wanted
all I want is
always you
it’s always you

and we’re not out of the tunnel
I bet you though there's an end

stay with me
hold my hand
there's no need
to be brave

and while you sleep
I'll be scared
so by the time you wake
I'll be brave
I'll be brave
I'll be brave
Track Name: carry me out
at night
on the roof top
I untie my hair
and watch from my plastic chair
as my dark hair
unleashes the night

the scent of flowers
still in bloom from morning shower
and I
say your name
in hopes you'll hear it in the stars

and carry me out
carry me out

I drive when it rains
at night when it rains I drive
and the headlight spirits
they lead me down the styx
so black it shines

and carry me out
carry me out
Track Name: last words of a shooting star
all of this turbulence wasn't forecasted
apologies from the intercom
and I am relieved that I'd left my room tidy
they'll think of me kindly
when they come for my things

they'll never know how I'd stared at the dark in that room
with no thoughts
like a blood-sniffing shark
and while my dreams made music in the night
carefully
I was going to live

you wouldn't leave till we loved in the morning
you'd learned from movies how love ought to be
and you'd say you love me and look in my eyes
but I know through mine you were
looking in yours

and did you know the liberty bell is a replica
silently housed in its original walls
and while its dreams played music in the night
quietly
it was told to believe

I always wanted to die clean and pretty
but I'd be too busy on working days
so I am relieved that the turbulence wasn't forecasted
I couldn't have changed anyways

I am relieved that I'd left my room tidy
goodbye
