Track Name: take on me
my room is empty
another year behind me
sitting on the floor,
sitting on the floor

reading lynda barry
her comix are sad but funny, i
wanna be a funny lady
when i'm 40

but for now,
i'm not sure what i'm doin'
all i know's that i got to keep
on movin'

hold-up, pop in A-ha
it'll get me groovin'
step on my own feet,
fuck it, keep singin'

♫ "take on me!
dun nun na nun nun
nun nun nah nun nun nah nah
dun nun na nun nun
nun nun nah nun nun nah nah
dun nun na nun nun
nun nun nah nun nun nah nah!" ♫
Track Name: so much strange to give
thinkin' bout four summers ago
driving down quiet back roads
in south jersey,
i was stinking of lake water and snack bar grease

listened to "September Gurls"
and hoped the school year would be different,
didn't wanna be a Big Star
but didn't wanna be a small fry either, no
oh oh oh oh
didn't wanna be a weenie any more

coffee at the kitchen table,
you'll join me two hours later
i'll be sitting in front of a blank page in my notebook
been reading through modern poetry
i just dont understand these images
why's this beauty blocked from me?
well, i know i know certain things:

i know uncertainty
i know every last freakin' thing 'bout hyperbole
i know someone knows the weather,
doesn't matter i always pack an extra sweater
bad jokes make me happy :)

put my laundry in the dryer two days later
turn it on high and forget it,
it catches on fire
i want to throw the appliance out the window
of my third floor apartment,
but i can't lift it so i spit on it

sip homemade lemonade in my dreams
cause i've yet to make any
not too much sugar, i like the sour and sting
dump iced tea on my head
in here i'm burning up, i'm unraveling
kick off my shoes, come with me, we'll swim through
through these sweat-stained sheets

crack open another can of beans
cheers to friends we've yet to meet,
i'll pray they forgive my reclusive tendencies
we've all got so much strange to give
Track Name: all you gotta be when you're 23
Laney: "I was really gonna be something by the age of 23"
Troy: "Honey, all you have to be by the age of 23 is yourself"
Laney: "I don't know who that is any more"

i'll buy your ticket to the show,
i'll buy you lemonade
if i only had fifty dollars to my name
i know you'd do the same

moving to a new city,
shaky footing till ya kiss me
now i'm philadelphia-crushin
walk three miles with me, honey
just for fun

cause all you gotta be
when you're 23
is yourself
call yourself an artist,
work part-time at whole foods
it's all good

displaced, thoughts racing, do i
settle down or keep moving
i am 23 years old today
where's my birthday cake?

feel better cause with you life's vacation
travel to the kitchen, get wylde on green tea
re-read our favorite stories, remember who we used to be
then forget it cause we've got a whole new city to see

and all you gotta be
when you're 23
is yourself
call yourself an artist,
work part-time at whole foods
it's all good

wear stupid lookin' shoes
defuse left-over teenage blues
it's all gooooooooooooooooooood!!!!
Track Name: the day-to-day
i'll try and think about
all i ever wanted
in their backseat
driving home from brooklyn

get caught up in dreading
to return to a routine i didn't create
try not to worry about my life's trajectory
and just see your face

i recognize you at the show
you're smiling slightly, i imagine
you're somewhere soft within yourself
and so i file the image away
for my day-to-day day-to-day day-to-day


i know that you've
been down, too
time slips away
yet we still hold our hands in front of our face

we used to speak about joan didion
and desire to be eminent
i still want it all, but for now i'm just
grasping for the wall

i stay away
i wish you happiness
but now you don't exist within my plane
you're still my friend
although, we lost each other
in the day-to-day, day-to-day, day-to-day
the day-to-day, day-to-day, day-to-day

Track Name: moo moo movin'
i lived in a pink room for a few weeks
and i lived in a shed for almost a year
i lived in new jersey till i was 13
and every year since i've mo-oh-oh-oh-ved

i eat grapefruit from a green bowl
and wonder why we're moving to philly
when what i want now is an eggplant garden
and neither of us has spent much time in cities

feels to late to reconsider
even though it isn't
and i don't wanna reconsider
i just wanna do it cause

new things are frightening
but they're also the most exciting

so i'm mo-oh-oh-vin'
and the best part is that i'm movin' with all of you
Track Name: common girl
it's raining again
still don't own an umbrella
get on the trolly
and eat toast with people i don't know

listen to your songs
and try to understand them
my mind is clouded, though
i couldn't sleep again

oh, i know,
that it's a common problem
maybe i'm a common girl
after all

we are working people now
spend eight hours away from our lives
when i return to mine
you've just left yours

when i feel alone
i put down my book
and re-read your note
i want you to know
how much it means to me

when i'm afraid
this love bends, but you don't let it break
honey, partner, person, friend
you unbound me
Track Name: the first time i hung out with you
the first time i hung out with you
we threw an empty whiskey bottle
out my 10th floor dorm room window

at the time, we knew
it was a stupid thing to do
but we laughed bashfully
as it smashed into the cement below

we wandered to the recycling to grab more
crash boom
boom boom

the 23rd time i hung out with you
we lit sparklers from dollar general
in my dark dorm room

before we did, we had been so blue
then your face lit like it was your birthday
till the sparks fizzled into dust in our hands,

the smoke alarm went off
but then it stopped
and no one came
i always think about those days
Track Name: moving song
moving song
gotta keep moving
i'm a detached tetherball
that rolled into a sand pit

and honestly,
i don't even wanna leave
cause i got my friend the oak tree
when the wind blows, she says "hey!"

cut me capris
dig me a palm tree
inject me with vitamin D
cast me out to sea
ship me to the mall

now i'm motionless
because i want it all
roast the whole bulb of garlic
and plop it in my pasta

but i know
while i wait for my life to begin
i need to start collecting
but how to craft good memories?

i'm doing this wrong
my paintbrush is dirty
this party is painful
cause i'm self-effacing
and i'd like to go to bed
Track Name: (i can't wait to) walk outside after it rains
i can't wait
to walk outside after it rains
cause it means
there'll be less people in the street

with the world so quiet,
i'll feel like i'm in that episode
of the twilight zone
for an hour i'll be a star on TV

but you know
i'll be so comforted
when people slowly start to surround me

cause you know
the truth is
i like havin' people around me

i'll go outside
when the sun shines
if you'll come with me

cause when the sun shines
and i'm on my own
i feel the most lonely
