Track Name: i’m the only one that knows the way to my own heart
i thought that i was loving you
the way you wanted to
you thought that you were loving me
the way i needed you

halfway through my sentence
felt a sudden change of heart
one day I’m all in
and then the next i fall apart

loving me is easy when
you know just wear to start
but i’m the only one
that knows the way to my own heart
Track Name: johnny when he's sweet and john for all the rest
sitting on the couch
and johnny comes around
puts his paws on me
my face then
on the ground

hugs me round the neck
i got this little bet
you won't be comin back
and don't call john
your pet

and don't call john your pet
he'll scratch up all your amps
so don't call john your pet

wrote a silly song
and johnny sang along

and don't call john your pet
he'll scratch up all your amps
so don't call john your pet
Track Name: girls make me wanna do
cold feet and lots of bloody underwear
which I’m gunna wear
on my date

rough hands and snotty sleeve i’m feeling bad
i'm really feeling bad
i'm gunna kiss your face

things don’t always go as planned
you know i stayed in bed
and ate chocolate cake

girls make wanna do
all the things with you
i didn’t do
Track Name: esophogus
we’ve lost track with how it feels to be
different than who we want to be
cause we have fallen comfortably
easily and stumbling

through blankets you will call for me
but i will fail to be
there for you when you were there for me
acknowledge my sympathy

and watch as i attempt to be
as sincere as you were to sincere to me
but i am feeling overwhelmed
and i can’t think clearly

i’m trying to stop this emptiness
from slipping through my esophagus
sunday nights i feel the pain
from all my sadness that remains
Track Name: ocean grooves a break up song
i got lost in the heart of the blue
then i found me a place somewhere new

don’t you have something else to do
i am over I’m through with you

don’t you have something else to do
found my peace in the ocean’s deep grooves

i got lost in the heart of the blue
thought id leave and return without you
thought id leave and return without you
thought id leave and return without you
Track Name: blanket of defense (not the rugby term)
it’s raining down buckets
and we’re sitting in our undies
on my porch
and thunders ringing
through my ears
for just another couple years
can we pretend that nothing happened
that we’ll always be best friends
and you can hold me in my dreams
but i don’t think ill ever be
the same as when we sat that summer
on my porch in undies
nothing comes quite close to this
told me that forever wasn’t long

it’s raining down buckets
and im sitting in my undies
and i close my eyes just briefly
remember you here with me
said that in a dream we kissed
but real life wasn’t made for this
so i go swimming with the whales
cause when this world makes no sense
create a blanket for defense
want to feel heard

and i close my eyes just briefly
and i remember you with me
said that in a dream we kissed
but real life wasn’t made for this
so i go swimming with the whales
cause when this world makes no sense
create a blanket of defense
create a blanket of defense
create a blanket of defense
want to feel heard
Track Name: easy way out
lost you somewhere
where the jawline meets the ear
you can hear me

whispers of starting over would mean
not being anymore

we are okay with that easy way out
Track Name: dragon friends
when i was 10
wrote a song of a land
burning castles
dragon friends

i love the minds
of little kids
what a world they live in
won’t they take me back in
wanna feel those things again
won’t they take me back in

i wanna go
follow them slow
into the trees
under the seas
up in the sky
they will lead

when i was 10
hated school so much then
wrote a song of burning them

i love the minds
of little kids
what a world they live in
won’t they take me back in
wanna feel those things again
what a world they live in

i wanna go
follow them slow
into the trees
under the seas
up in the sky
they will lead

when i was 10
wrote a song of a land
burning castles
dragon friends
