Immortals 03:07
you’re on the stage and i feel like a fan who doesn’t see a person but an admirable brand that conflation is why i can’t sleep is your kindness a service to me? and when i take a minute, i can come to recognize my humble place within a universe that holds you inside it would i also feel immortal if you touched me? you’re at the bar and i feel like a freak juxtaposing words against actions i see knowing neither need to mean anything the future fills the spaces between i’d like to think i have a secret that is only mine but an illusion is a normal thing to die inside of would i also feel immortal if you touched me? you will have everything you’ll ever need some confirmation that goodness succeeds and in time i’ll feel immortal when you aren’t with me

be patient it will come back that’s never how it really happens your mind disintegrates and memories replace the beauty of new interactions all good intentions they end up slowly descending into a fantasy that i could pick up the phone and tell you something you’d be able to receive be patient it will come back like nothing ever really happened and life from there resumes without me loving you mixing resentment and compassion maybe i have a choice
3.
Earshot 02:53
tenderness in dreams make for harsher light i wanna try and treat it like i lead a double life one where all these little moments stitch together and one independent of my love for you i struggle with the words so i put them to the side and make a private corner for you and me to hide in where all these little anxieties trickle in stitching together in one independent of my love for you i wanna shout your name from a rooftop and hope that you are not in earshot of me tonight i can’t disengage no i can’t stop unrelentingly in love with you i wanna shout your name from a rooftop and hope that you are not in earshot of me tonight i worry as this leaves my lips that you and i cannot exist independent of my love for you

New Things 01:56
getting ahead of myself again my heart is an untuned instrument and in tightening the strings i begin to feel new things with you i wonder if i’d know what to do if my heart is just a rehearsal room where you’re tinkering for days to make other people feel this way let me make a better case for breaking up the negative space and let you know i can always give you time to look for other reasons to deny it or let your fears dissolve see the beauty it can bring exploring these new things with you
5.
Unlovable 02:26
you take your time and i’ll make the time you paint the field and i’ll find the lines and if you’re feeling distant you can just ignore what i sent it isn’t the space that keeps us apart cuz i’d gladly meet you where you are it’s the feeling we share that this may never make sense all i want is for you to see it doesn’t make you unlovable to have needs don’t intellectualize who you love then how could anyone be enough? stephen stills said it in a way that makes more sense all i want is for you to see it doesn’t make you unlovable to have needs and as you are you’re in my dreams it doesn’t make you unlovable to have needs you can say anything
6.
The Villain 03:36
My mother calls me to say she’s still upset My sister sends a text and all her best Well it’s alright to stay inside Let each message pass you by The consideration’s nice but the ritual is what I need The consideration’s nice but the ritual is what I need I don’t wanna be the villain Alone and in silence, I’m the architect Of futures, tall buildings with you I neglect Driving down I-95 Stopped at Dunkin’ just to cry In all of our years together I lived only the deleted scenes The consideration’s nice but I don’t need it I don’t wanna be the villain Love is an argument that assumes itself You whittle it down until it’s merely a habit It perseveres Love is an argument that assumes itself The moment it begins to feel like magic I worry it will persevere I don’t wanna be the villain That I know I’m destined to become
7.
the moment when you become a real adult isn’t when you sign a contract it’s not upon romantic contact it’s when you recognize that what you feel is not exceptional when my angel and my devil sing in perfect phase they both cancel out each other and i’m left in my malaise i fear that i’ve fallen in love with the idea of my own suffering cuz it makes me uncomfortable to think of a world with you without the suffering what do you see as the problem when you ask for help if not yourself two delusions joined together make a place to dwell within yourself i fear that i’ve fallen in love with the idea of my own suffering cuz it makes me uncomfortable to think of a world with you without the suffering
