Track Name: Jake Plus One
The news is changing everyday,
But I still act the same way.
Jane took me out to eat.
It was a real treat.

And though I can't see how young I appear to be,
I'm still learning how to be myself
Without ruining someone else.

How long will the train wait
Before it passes you by.
Maybe I'll take a drive
All the way to Skive.

And though I can't see how young I appear to be,
I'm still learning how to be myself
Without ruining someone else.

Where did the time go?
Where did it go?
I'm growing old.

Where did I go?
Where did we go?
I'm going home.
Track Name: Yr Birthday
It's yr birthday today, and I won't be there
I just wanted to say, have a good time regardless
b/c it's 90 degrees, like never before
and you're lit like the candles on yr cake, and you're still looking for a job
and we'll swap faces w/ the portraits and listen to Songs of the Silent Age
The river looks so calm, as I hear jazz played beside
They all listen to Morell, or gaze when he's quiet
Now the church bells are ringing for someone else's wedding day
As we see the corn start growing, I know the harvest is on its way

Won't you slide over to me, it's cooler in the shade
You can whisper to me what you're thinking
Only babies know why they're sobbing,
Only babies know why they're smiling

I just wanted to tell you something I could not think of in the moment.
Track Name: Sk8 or Die
She was in a conversation once,
tring, tring, tring,
I hear the telephone ring

You and her were following things through,
You were dancing lights

And if you see her, it's better never l8,
So why don't we sk8 or die
The ice is getting thin,
The water's getting warm,
I just want to jump in with you

She was singing her little chanson
With Jean Dujardin

Heureux pour toujours.

And if you see her, it's better never l8,
So why don't we sk8 or die
The ice is getting thin,
The water's getting warm,
I just want to jump in with you

I carry you in my heart.
Track Name: Golf
My uncle got a set of golf clubs on his birthday
We talked on the telephone last night, he said we ought to play
And I've never played a game in my life, but I said, I said okay

When we played I was like a castaway
And my uncle, he smiled at me the whole time
'Twas only midday and we both sweat like pigs
And now we, we drift away

And I'll never be good at golf
You can put that in your screenplay
It's something you can write off
I'll never be good at golf

Rich men, who are nothing like me, sit out on the lawn
Smoking their fancy cigars with their sweet broads and mercedes
And seeing them kind of makes me wish sort of makes me dream, but I

I'll never be good at golf
I'm just a piece of (shit/ millenial) who talks
I'll close my eyes to all their fame
And I'll fly so far away,
I'll fly slowly,
And I'll fly so far away.
Track Name: Benchmarks
I saw you burning your dress the other day
And I wanted to tell you what I thought
Take it to the man to take it to the woman to
Take it to the man to take it to the woman

We don't know who is in charge and we are lost
And the people above they tell us
How to live our lives and how to sacrifice our lives
How to live our lives and how to sacrifice our lives

Here we are and another day is gone
And the leaves on the trees are changing
Changing for you and changing for me too
Changing for you and changing for me too

And we try to stick together, but don't get sentimental please
Because I'm gonna cry you, a river for you to go swimming in

And though we work up to a point I gotta say
I love looking at bench marks
And I know you do too
Yes I know you do too
I love you.
Track Name: Rabbit in the Rain
The rabbit's in the rain oh no
You are going insane oh no
You used to have a charm
Now you cause more harm
Throwing the flowers down the drain
and yeah I almost missed my train

I heard him say my name, calling out for nails and paint
of which I have none to spare
nor do I even care
Well the walls have had holes before
so paint a picture to adore

One where the rabbit's got a nice fur coat
One where his family is close to him
One where they've all got food to eat
One where it's all tidy and neat
One where all's at peace
Track Name: Chippenham
Chippenham,
The drooping flag,
The smell of old times;
The sounds of Van Dyke and football games;
Dogs walking men
And thoughts of moving friends

And you're still here, when I've
I've been gone for/four years

Swimming pools, poker nights, I'll drive my dad's car;
I'll mow the lawn, when laundry's out of the basket
Don't forget about school...

And you're not here anymore
I've been walking around looking for

You, or somebody new

It'll be snowing soon
Track Name: Grateful Upset
So you want to move on without bringing me along
Looking through my dresser drawer it's like sitting on the ocean floor
(I try to loosen my body)
Well you came out of my dreams and into my schemes
I recall my fall
And I recall your face
When it came over me.
Track Name: Sights & Sounds
The sights and sounds from yesterday with you
How they've stuck with me, how you picked up from me
The laughs, the naps, the insatiable acts
I thought they'd end, I knew they'd all end

But I'll wait by my mailbox in summer shoes and sweaty socks

You who I cherish open a pen and write something down
or draw me something pretty

There's no such thing as a cool kid
It's all make believe what we tell ourselves
It's never really there
Because too many people feed off of other people

And I'll wait by my mailbox in summer shoes and sweaty socks

You who I cherish open a pen and write something down
or draw me something pretty

There's no such thing as a smart kid
It's all make believe what we tell ourselves
It's never really there
Because too many people feed off of other people
Track Name: (curls)
(instrumental)
Track Name: Tiny Desk
Another page with a face gets pushed to the side
This desk knows who I am, I can tell it's been cluttered before
With all the notes and letters help us forget, get over her
-Because they don't lie here anymore

And I know, friends, you tell me the sun is out shining today
Let me tell you, dear friends, you can outshine me this way
All the thoughts and words, I understood what you've implied
-And I don't want to lie to you no more

See, all the rain is in my head, look at my watch, it's time for bed
(look out my window, it's sunny instead)
