Track Name: Good Move
I'm so tall I ducked into the car when you pulled up on the side to drive me around for the last time. I'm so hurt I couldn't find the words to change your mind and not drive for the last time. In the passenger seat I tried to hold onto you. You were crying and apologizing.
Track Name: Goin' to the Show
I feel heavy. I smell like a hot dog. I wish I was the king of rock and roll.
Track Name: Shoesies
It's not hard to see how much I tried to get you back,
lacing up my shoes so I don't stretch them out.
You're not so hard to read cause you're described by what you do,
still wearing the shoes she bought for you.
I hope you're happy now (?)
I just wanted to talk to you somehow (?)
I've never been so in love (?)
Track Name: Ditch the Boys
I went to see the sky light up with you and the boys.
Sneak the the G because we told them we'd go the other way.
Ditch the boys.
You slammed the light on when we got back:
"Wake up, Jorge"
"Put on the fan"
In dream land you're sitting right next to me, smiling big and touching my hand.
Track Name: Egged
A crack in the sidewalk,
(The) crack of an egg on your head.
You wash it in the pool, give it a whirl, make a wave

Dressed as a nerd I'll figure it out.
I'm a hotdog with a bra. I'm a clown.
Temporarily different, I'm a version of myself with sunglasses on.
Track Name: Joni Day
I think you're fine. Actually I think you're so great. I'm glad that you think you're mine. You think I'm fine, too, and you've fine tuned all your thinking to what I think is nice.
