Track Name: Queer Feelings ft. Kyan
I fell in love with my best friend
I have a lot of queer feelings
And every song is about them
And every song is about her

This year she got married
We’re all getting older
My new girl looks just like her
I don’t love her anymore I swear

This is a song about being 13
and this is a song about being 16
and this is a song about being 18
and this is a song about being 21

I listen to Andrea Gibson
While sulking in my bedroom
It used to be bikini kill
It used to be blink 182

I’m trying to be honest with myself
But reality is the first level of hell
My angst, like my acne, never went away

This is a song about being 13
and this is a song about being 16
and this is a song about being 18
and this is a song about being 21

I don’t even believe half the lyrics I’m saying
I don’t even believe half the lyrics I’m saying
I don’t even believe half the shit I learn at school
Except that article about queer feelings
Except that article about queer feelings
I have a lot of queer feelings
Track Name: This Song is Self Care
I will not say I’m sorry for hurting or having feelings
I will not text you back, not right now, I know I’m being a child
But you make everything seem so easy, even hurting me just now
Ok, you didn’t mean to but your sweetness makes me feel more bitter somehow
This is me taking care of myself, you don’t see me drinking
Or fucking or doing anything I’d love to abuse right now
I know I’m a mess but you said you love me and I think I love me toox2
Life feels like sandpaper, my skin feels like sandpaper, I’m only learning how to be a body
And I’m sorry body, for leaving trauma in you in this cycle of insecurity
I know I’m a mess, it shouldn’t matter if you love me if I love me right?x2
Everything always comes back to me, always comes back to me
Always come back aroundx2
Track Name: 17 Ghosts
I had a dream I was 17
I woke up and I was 17
How do I convince myself it was just a dream?

Ooo

I swear I've been here
I have done this before

Ooo

I think I'm just a ghost
Rattlin bones
I have haunted
This whole town

Ooo

I had a dream I was 17
I woke up and I was 17
I woke up and I was a haunting

Ooo

I'm just a ghost
Forever 17
Track Name: Still Here (Winter Song)
It's cold
It taunts my strings
It makes me brittle
I'm out of tune but I'll still sing

It wont snow
Anywhere except my rib cage
It rains
For days and days
I haven't seen the moon
But I'll still sing

I don't know why I'm still here
I lost it all and found it again between these city walls
They wont let me out, only in
I don't know why I'm still here
I tried to leave with pencil sharpeners and beer, I'm still here
I tried to leave with planes, buses, cars, I'm still here
I try to leave, I try to leave, I try to leave, I try to leave
I'm still here
Track Name: Boil It Out
Hot water on your skin
Boil it out
Who are you? I thought you knew, I thought you knew
Read the message again don’t act confused, don’t act confused
Who are you I thought you knew, I thought you knew
Theyre going to talk, youre black and blue, you’re black and blue
You don’t have a soul, no, you have a body
You have a heart, it beats in you, it beats in you
I thought you knew, I thought you knew
Try forget what you’ve seen, it beats in you it beats in you
Throw it away and start anew
Boil it out
Track Name: Late Nights
I had a revelation about compassion and then it slipped my mind
While I was falling in and out of
This body of mine, Like a drunk In a trust catch
And a slowly spinning room
I was waiting
I was waiting
But not waiting for you

I keep wanting to be a poem like that will solve my problems
I keep weeding out the voices like I am not all of them
Nostalgia is killer so I don't care where the time went
Waiting is still water and a mosquito bite in the end

The sandman and I are fighting and he won't call me back
I haven't been writing and I think I feel sad about that
I've tried to call it living, that's what these past six months have been
And now I'm so tired, That things are starting to make sense
Track Name: Look Up
Every night when I look at the stars,
It doesn't matter, where you are
It just means, you're not far, at least you're closer to me than mars
Which is comforting because you've got this pull on me, I don't think you understand the gravity
I am the ocean, you are the moon, you put me in motion, what do I do to you, what do I do to you
I want to show, show and tell that I've never seen a blue moon like you
But I don't know where you go and leave my sky so cold
I just want you close so I can see each crater that you may not like but I love the most
I look up, look up, look up to you
I am the ocean, you are the moon, you put me in motion, what do I do to you, what do I do to you
Track Name: "Real" Love
Yes, I've packed the bags under my eyes full of late nights
Don't you know I'm always "going" never "gone"?
I've tucked you in my tear ducts for safe keeping or something
Dancing on the knife blade, who's keeping who safe
This is trust, love, never-get-enough then gone again
Don't take it personal, sometimes these words are as good as miles
I've got an artillery of doubt
Let me love please, this time mind-heart, this time "real"
real love, real love
jet lag, thumb tacked map
Let me love like a bus I know will take me where I need to go
Let me trust in you like the land I love, like Earth, twirling, trying to see it all-ways coming back to you
Yes, I've packed the bags under my eyes full of late nights
Got "going" on an IV drip drip dripping and "coming" on the palm of your hand
Got this back and forth dance down to a science, but I'm looking for art
For now, good thing you like science and good thing you like me
For tomorrow, let me love please, this time mind-heart, this time "real"
real love, real love
jet lag, thumb tacked
real love, real love,
jet lag, unpacked bags
