Track Name: Installation Art
A place that I don’t know now
Imprinted in my footsteps
And when I put my foot down here, it’s been a year,
But lately, it feels like forever
I guess I always thought you’d be there waiting for me

The pieces of your postcard
Now nothing more than installation art
An homage to the detachment that I tried to feign when really,
I think I fell apart
And my inclination always gets the best of me

So maybe I could be less angry
Now that I’ve forgotten the way you used to look at me
And you will forget me in new places
And I’ll put things in boxes and memorize new faces
And I’m sorry I was nervous all the time

Do you think that I could make it better if I promised to love you forever?
Track Name: Last Summer's Beer
Apprehensively thinking about all the things that you say when you go
But decidedly, I only tell you the things that I want you to know
That was my heart split in half the last time I sat down on your floor
But now this is me saying come over cuz I’m lonely again and you’re bored

I’ll be kind to you
I wouldn’t mind if you were too
I couldn’t talk to you cuz you weren’t here
Songs from last autumn and last summer’s beer

You can pretend that you care about me for as long as you like
But I don’t really worry about you, I don’t think that we’re much alike
That was me crying on your shoulder cuz there was no one else around
But now this is me taking it back, it’s an awfully familiar sound

I’ll be kind to you
I wouldn’t mind if you were too
I don’t think I know you now cuz you’re not here
Songs from last autumn and last summer’s beer
Track Name: Dead Ends
My mouth is dried up
You’re blocking my exit
Make me feel like you’re not here
And in the dark I will memorize the cavities in your chest

Self-esteem’s not the problem
Caught between two extreme dead ends
I could wait for you to come around
But I feel good when I’m on my own

Convergence unintentional
But I know by now what I’m doing
Pretend we’re not strangers
It’s only for this one careless night, then things will be better

Self-esteem’s not the problem
Caught between two extreme dead ends
I could act like I’ve been running through your mind
But I feel good when I’m on my own

Let’s see if I can remember this, remember this
Cuz I always forget to breathe
And I always pretend not to see you
Let’s see if I can remember this, remember this away
Track Name: Getting On In Spite of You
Getting on in spite of you
When the summer isn’t all it’s cracked up to be
Maybe I just try too hard to make it easy,
Make you think it’s not your fault
But it’s always mine, I’m out of time, I am running out of time with you

Cuz if I had loved you for a thousand days or more,
Or if I hadn’t laid here with this doubt creeping up my spine,
Maybe we could help this

Somewhere in the back of my mind, to keep from falling all the time,
I keep one last image of you
And apologies won’t make you smart
But I guess it’s different, cuz you’re the one who always changed
But it’s never me, why can’t you see that this time things may not be okay

Cuz if I had loved you for a thousand days or more,
Or if I hadn’t laid here with this doubt creeping up my spine,
Maybe we could help this

Cuz if I had loved you the way you loved me before,
Or if you hadn’t left me with this doubt creeping up my spine,
Maybe we could help this
Track Name: Untitled
Silence consumes me tonight
My teeth start to chatter and you ask if I am alright
And I’m not scared of being alone
But twenty five hours, now his simple heart has grown cold

And I am in your room
To take my mind off of it

But I like the way you say my name
I open myself to vindictive decisions and I don’t think that I’ll ever change
So maybe we’re feeling the same
Our heavy hearts have grown tired of waiting and constantly feeling so strange

And you are in my bed
To take your mind off of it

Ooh, I’m stealing glances at you
I’ve been falling too fast like I’m looking for something to prove
So I’ll hide this sadness with anger
The same trivial act to protect from attack, I just push you back

Cuz you’ll probably hurt me
As long as I let you

I always let you
