about

If you get sad in the summertime a lot but don't like listening to Lana Del Ray, then this EP is for you. There is a strange theme of bitterness that I don't know much about, but I do know that these songs don't necessarily come from my heart, although possibly yours.

This is a collection of songs old and new, released and previously unreleased, now freeeeeeeee!

Track Name: A Song About New Years
There's something wrong with this picture that I can't put my finger on, but if you nudge me gently, I'll know exactly what needs to be done.

There's something wrong with your story. You're telling everything all wrong, but if you told me why you're doing it, I'll know exactly what you meant.

If not, "I'm sorry," then maybe an apology, disguised, blaming other people for what's been done. And while I sit here making excuses, you'll get up and leave and say I'm over it, over my head with plenty to fear. And that's how I started the new year.

There's nothing wrong with new beginnings, fresh starts, and happier endings, but nothing ever works out as God planned it, so let's take a sip and wish for the best.

There's nothing wrong with wishful thinking, talking in bed, pray that I'm still there. But in the morning I'm somewhere else. Don't worry, I know exactly where you are.

If not back east, then back where you used to be-- in my head, sitting bored and pondering what's been done. And while I sit here making excuses, you'll get up and leave and never come back.

How did this start? And will it ever end? Is it over? Will you come back again? No one waiting, nothing I hold dear, and that's how it happened last year.
Track Name: Song To Myself
Do you ever think about empty rooms
And how I could just fill it with a million pairs of shoes
I tried running to you
I tried to run to your door
You weren’t home

But in the morning I get up
And I run and run some more

Do you ever think about waterfalls
How you could reach top and see
How everything is small
Forget about your problems
Forget about it
Think of nothing at all

Eventually you come back down
And you try and try to climb it once again

Humans are funny little things
So attracted to tragedy

And when it hurts you cry out
For somebody to help you
And you take all their good advice
And throw it on the ground
Because you know just what you’re doing
There’s no way that you’re wrong again this time

And when you’re falling over
And you reach out for a hand
A voice will sound and reprimand
The foolish little child inside your heart

Can you eat up all your pride for once
You didn’t mean to make a mess
But look around you
Nothing is alright

I know you’re tired and unwell
But we can’t make excuses all the time
There’s no such thing as loving every person on this earth
If you constantly ignore the person who should be coming first
And that’s yourself

So forget about your loneliness
Forget about the boy for just a day
Sure, he’s leaving in a week
But think of all the lovely people who will stay
Track Name: What Are You Sad About Leaving Behind?
I’ve never called you darling, but that doesn’t mean that you’re unkind.
I’ve never called you sweetheart, but that doesn’t mean you’re bitter all the time.

For all we know our woes are only roses that won’t grow, so don’t be afraid, know that they’ll be there. They just need some more love and some more care, and over time, our branches won’t be bare.

You’ve been gone just a day, but I miss you like I haven’t seen you in a year. I wish I could just tell you how I feel, but your reaction is my fear.

I never seem to find that I’m important in your life even though I know we’re friends and friends are always there for friends, but waiting isn’t something I recommend.

It’s just hard to love somebody who is there for you reluctantly.
You gave me something I don’t want to keep and I hope that this haunts you in your sleep and I hope you know you’ve made my life feel cheap.
Track Name: Nighthawk
C
we wake up again at half past 12
and wonder where the day has gone this time.
we wake up again at half past noon
and can’t believe we wasted all the night.

Am F C
but still we try to wander in our sleep.
and we’re only left with melancholy dreams.

C
i woke up again at half past 5
and waited for the sun to gently rise.
you didn’t wake up til 4 of 9
and i’d already taken to the skies.

Am F C
it’s funny how we’re bursting at the seams
but all i want is you here next to me.
yet i’m against the wall with teeth dug in my knees,
a bitter sight at quarter after 3.

Am F C
but how do you expect me to get up again?
when we only have a moment to defend
ourselves from all the demons in our heads.
it goes to show i don’t have common sense.

C
we wake up again at half past noon
and wonder where the day has gone awry.
we wake up again at half past 12
and can’t believe we had to say goodnight.

Am F C
still we try to wake up in the morning
or roll around the street without the warning
that dreams will sometimes leave scars in your sight
but everything will still turn out alright

I’ve never called you darling
But that doesn’t mean that you’re unkind
I’ve never called you sweetheart
But that doesn’t mean you’re bitter all the time

Are only roses that won’t grow
So don’t be afraid, know that they’ll be there
They just need some more love and some more care
And over time, our branches won’t be bare

You’ve been gone just a day
But I miss you like I haven’t seen you in a year
I wish I could just tell you how I feel
But your reaction is my fear

I never seem to find that I’m
Important in your life
Even though I know we’re friends
And friends are always there for friends
But waiting isn’t something I recommend

It’s just hard to love somebody
Who is there for you reluctantly
You gave me something I don’t want to keep
And I hope that this haunts you in your sleep
And I hope you know you’ve made my life feel cheap
