Track Name: okaycool 2
just because i am sane
doesn't mean that i don't want to share your pain
just because i am sure
doesn't mean that my heart isn't beating anymore
what am i supposed to say to you
hello's not enough when i miss you
i listened to the microphones today
if phil can do this i will be okay
Track Name: how i felt about most things
this is where i loved you for the first time and the last
and that is where i loved you for the second time
i hate it when people say that "love is like a cancer"
because my mother has a cancer and it doesn't feel like love
that's okay i promise you will feel better in a while
"come back home i miss your silly smiles"
i'll come home when i am ready i'll talk to you when things feel steady
but for now you'll have to learn to live in silence like i did
i'll come home when i am ready i'll talk to you when things feel steady
but for now you'll have to learn to live in silence like i did
and this one is kind of similar to all the others that i've written
since i met you since since i wasn't just another
it was pretty warm today what will it be tomorrow
will it fill up the whole atmosphere with love for me to borrow
Track Name: underneath the pillows
i heard you scream
everyone you know is starting to settle down
a tainted bloodstream
i just want to hear about this life you've found
you told me last night in your dream
i made you a promise i would hang around
i didn't know what awful was til you skipped town
i didn't know what awful was til you skipped town
i could've sworn as you rose
your obituary was written in prose
i'd never seen your father cry
i don't see him anymore i wonder why
how could i tell your mother that
the second that i left was when they called me back
if i had to
come home i would need you
i ask myself if i killed you
if i could think about it i wouldn't want to
if i had to kill you
i guess i would but i wouldn't want to
if i had to kill you
i guess i would but i wouldn't want to
Track Name: how it feels to kiss trees
how it feels to kiss trees

i can't write these pretty songs especially about you
but that don't mean that i won't try to wrap my arms around
you took my heart out of my chest and you threw it on the ground
and you said this is me and this is you and this is where i found
you pressed your hands against my body and held on until i passed
i dreamt of what i could become i dreamt those dreams to last
you laughed at me and said "no one comes here anymore"
that's because we've just begun we've just opened the door
when i see you tomorrow i'll smile and you'll say
"i don't know what has happened but i hope things are okay"
Track Name: okaycool 1
this song is super self-indulgent i know get over it

honestly, i hate every single thing i write (jordan, never apologize)
i'm sorry i played them for you (there's no need to worry like that)
i'm sorry you listened for night after night (your songs are pretty in their own right)
