Track Name: I Don't Mind
Standing there, in the corner of the room
You got your arms crossed tight like you know who
Watching me, throw my arms over my head
It's nice to let go, I like not feeling dead

I feel like
I have found
The trees, the leaves, this earth, the ground

I don't mind if you're tired of my shit
It's the same old stuff that started it
I'm just trying to take this day by day
For once that's not a problem, for once that's just okay

I feel like
I have found
The trees, the leaves, this earth, the ground
Track Name: Live Here
I know you're all alone sometimes
You can live at my house, if you'd like
There's where you'll be dreaming, on the right
We'll wake up for dancing in the middle of the night

'Cause it gets pretty weird, talking to ourselves
I think I'd much rather talk to you
Track Name: Pulled In
Gotta control my fingertips
before they slip
Your breath is heavy and makes sound
thanks for being around

I've lived on the shelf
Can't control myself
Cast my heart away
I want you to stay

The world looks better from out here
crystal clear
The sky opened up and pulled me in
and that was it

I've lived on the shelf
Can't control myself
Cast my heart away
I want you to stay

I guess I do owe you a lot
you'd think not
I wrote your name on my window
don't go
Track Name: Something Else
Sunlight wash over me
I sat on the steps you said I was pretty
I felt happy
I was happy

I'll go on my way
I've been here before
and I've been okay
I fell too hard gotta take good care of myself
It isn't a mess
I don't have to stress
It's just something else

Wind blew hair on my face
I guess that is why I couldn't see the mistakes
Always gotta be some sad song
that tells you so sweetly you got it all wrong
Why'd this happen?
Well, shit happens

I'll go on my way
I've been here before
and I've been okay
I fell too hard gotta take good care of myself
It isn't a mess
I don't have to stress
It's just something else
Track Name: Turtles
Pull back the curtains again
The light is aching to flow back in
I've never felt so small
Collected my dues but I lost them all

The moon is beaming down on me
The stars all share their laugh
I've felt pretty hopeless before
I just want this to last to last to last to last
Track Name: Flood
I've got all this time
But I forgot to shut the door again
I guess that explains why
My heart just let you in

Just don't stomp around and crush me down
'Cause I'm already small
as it is

I've been thinking a lot
How things never seem to fall in place
I'm staring at a wall
But all I really want is to see your face

My street flooded the other day
And I watched all those thoughts
Wash away

Wash away

Float on down
It's okay
It's not supposed to make perfect sense
anyway
Track Name: Drained
I saw a shadow in the corner of my room
I thought it would seep through but I didn't think this soon
Oh no
It swallowed me whole

I swam around in what I created for myself
I tried to feel around but I didn't call for help
I felt
my memory pull me down

I cannot make out a single word you're saying
Yeah your muffled voice is calling but you know that I'm just staying here

It appears that I've lost touch
But I remember when your words were crystal clear

Your laugh is floating around in here
Track Name: Fine
Heard you call my baby
Don't think it didn't phase me
Is it now you found out
That I didn't call out

It doesn't really matter
I'm sure I'll be just fine

Heard you call me darling
Don't think that it was charming
I've been thinking aloud
Guess you figured me out

There is only one way
This will all be gone someday

I'll be here
Don't forget
At least I didn't have my heart set
No more fear
Forget regret
I suppose that this is what I get

Heard you call me cupcake
It made my whole world shake
Guess I'm still pretending
No more happy ending

It doesn't really matter
I'm sure I'll be just fine

Heard you call me crazy
It really didn't phase me
I've been thinking aloud
Guess you figured me out

Does it even matter?
I'm sure you'll be just fine
Track Name: Pocket
He doesn't know how to push them away
They're running round screaming "please let us stay"
I've seen this so many times before
He's standing there with his foot in the door

Come in, come in

Please believe the words I say
Things like these don't go away
You can stay in my pocket
When you lose control of it

I won't forget a thing you said
I wrote it down inside of my head
