If I said you were killing me bro is it something you could believe oh cause the winter's been tough on us I know But if I could just bother you boo with a couple of words or two then I got something to share with you no matter what, I wanna be in high standing take a second to think it through please talk it out on roof top balconies take some time for spring to come our way and if things should come to pass oh well we made a lovely tableau and I’ve got something to share with you A 2 minute tune, to pass the time away but I wanna stay in high standing

Take my weights on Monday I don’t think I can lift em anymore take my books on Tuesday I’m probably only gonna ever be a bore gimme back my weights I’m great! but wait! oh, the momentary lens plotting 2 points to my death in momentary trends better if you took another breath routines and reminders are fun but I can feel low for no reason in momentary trends better if you took another Take my friends on Wednesday, I can barely think of anything to say Take my job on Thursday, I feel weary and I’m barley getting paid Give me back my friends I’m a mensch! then again!

Friends and neighbors Save your anger Times still ticking Call in later but no I couldn’t even say right now I couldn’t even say right now Faint acquaintance Reversed payments Rents still backed up Anxious cadence Why can’t we get along like children often do? Subtle shifting Work relenting Favorite CDs Saved up plenty but no I couldn’t even say right now I couldn’t even say right now I love ya you love me i love me oh no

Last night we saw a movie we were hanging out at your place you were kinda sitting next to me well, girl, I know what that means ‘Cause Baby it’s getting late and my neighborhood is far away So maybe I should stay ‘Least ’till your lease ends next May Last wednesday we were shopping at the Target just around the block the savings were so shocking well, Baby, you know what that means This feels like home… Take this moment and pause it. Gonna make a deposit! ‘Cause baby it’s getting late (I got the keys to your heart and…) and my neighborhood is far away (I got the keys to your apartment) So maybe I should stay ‘Least ’till your lease ends next May

I won the battle just for you, my darling and I’ll propose to you real cool, my darling. Everyone will come and see but it’s on hold because one thing is missing So I want you to come back In a little more time You’ll be a little more mine And I bet there’s roses on your mind Well if you come and see I made a garden like a movie Now a pinata holds that garden, darlin’ It’s so big I brought in archers, darlin’ You’ll know that I’m not just a flirt Maximum roses and minimum dirt So I want you to come back In a little more time You’ll be a little more mine And I bet there’s roses on your mind Well if you come and see They’ll be raining down on you and me I know you’ll want me (and I’ll want you, too)

If I have ever wondered wrong The way I will eventually I know you lied you know I cried I know the truth I’m gonna tell it to ya Hey! I’ll take you back! The second time we made amends I shuttered with anxiety These feelings I can’t understand and these worries I can’t comprehend as they’re knocking down my door so my darling understand and be tender towards me please as I struggle with these things as I struggle just to say…

When you walk out the door well I’ll tell you what I’ll do I’ll go on the Craigslist and I’ll rent out your room When we go to the store well I’ll tell you what I’ll do I’m looking straight ahead as if I don’t know you Where did you go?

When I’m riding my bike Right ’round Wrigley Field This no good snot tries to boister a lot I tell him how I feel When I’m shopping for food and I’m stuck in line people trying to cut so I say “what the fuck?” I give them a little piece of my mind No touch is a bad touch is a cold punch to me No time is a bad time for a good rhyme to feeling happy When I’m stuck at work and the boss is tough he’s on my back and then he’s at my throat I tell him straight off the cuff and when I’m stuck at home and my faucet breaks call my landlord man he says he’ll do what he can then I tell him the stakes A cheap lie or a stink eye can save you in a bind but a good ‘tude and the right mood can make you feel less entwined No touch is a bad touch is a cold punch to me (come back to me) No time is a bad time for a good rhyme to feeling happy (so I won’t feel so lonely)

Its too damn hot I can’t find the breeze I bought two fans. I chugged down all the drinks summers here bring us the fall a cool cool guy who’s sweat starts to break the tension resolves the stress starts to fade summers here bring us the fall And the temperature just keeps on rising Who will save my heart and who will save my soul? Who will save my heart and who will save my soul? Was going on home but ain’t going to stay I’ve had it now. my hearts going to break summers here bring us the fall Too much work but done for the day we’ll have a drink and we won’t have to pay cause we take some things when we have some drinks The handclap track’s always anonymous

I met him at a record shop at the letter f, in the section pop, I said, “have you heard of a band called ‘Foam’?”, he said, “let me guess, you’re in a band called ‘Foam’” I took him to a coffee place where the coffee’s “blah” but the music’s ace I said, “Is it true that you live on your own? If so, can I see your home?” Are you alone, alone, alone? I don’t want to be a creep, I just want to know Are you alone, alone, alone? here my seven little digits, so put them in your phone Are you alone, alone, alone? I don’t want to be a creep, I just want to know Cause if you are alone tonight, well I’ve got a cure that I thought we’d try somewhere round a half-past-ten I was feeling down so I called his friend I said “do you think that he wants me bad?” she said “who is this? Do you mean my dad?” It could be so easy, if you would try to talk to me You can bet at 10 in the morn’ I was at his front door w/ my electric horn I said, “come on out and we can being, come on over and see how I order my bins”

He went away from me why, I couldn’t say He went away from me Oh, no So now I say to you I’ll have you know I ain’t no star falling low in the sky The things he said to me you wouldn’t believe The things he said to me Oh, no So now I say to you
