The Forecast 03:00
It’s harder to get up on the right side of the bed These days foot steps in snow make me feel less alone It’s secret I’m still hoping for some kind of X-ray vision And I would beam into your bedroom blinds just so I knew you were alright Acting mature is overrated I miss the days of keying cars And spreading rumors on the bathroom stalls and locker room walls Where we forgot we looked when we were hoping no one noticed Praying someday we’d fit into this mess It won’t be long before I Forget just what it felt like To fall asleep with you breathing next to me I shut the door when you left to keep out the cold and myself From running after you just like I saw in the movies It’s true I have my regrets we never danced on roof tops And I have found some fake words to say when somebody asks about our death It won’t be long before I Forget just what it felt like To know that I did not know anything It’s safe to say that even though we’re disregarding I can’t help but to wonder which song you’re humming And so I sit and pretend that I don’t mind that I don’t know you or what your schedule might look like on any given Thursday afternoon somebody wrote this rulebook and so we will make the effort to be more scarce in the social situations that we might share It won’t be long before I Forget just what it felt like To feel anything for you at all In lines at grocery store I’m dozing off into you arms And I hope some days you can’t help but to doze off to me to

The Wanderer 03:59
The curtains have been closed, I am cold still When hunters blow their smoke into the hills And the pretty girls pick pine cones, In the white fields And I am wide eyed waiting for you So Mother mind the your words These are young ears built to feast on what it is they hear Mother don’t be cruel If you are looking, a good man will whip himself in front of you Win or lose, He will be there for you And he will call you by your first name Win or lose, I cannot comfort you Anymore than my touch can tell The lungs that I could long for Are heaving hearts full of Empty books on wood shelves starving And the mouths that speak the good word I am not good for because I tasted the fruit when it was ripe And so I wash my hands clean of these things And I will lick my lips and you will look but you can’t touch And you will go on stalwart fighting for your causes And I will go on stalwart counting all my loses I am just as good as the ones who Stand in the street and beg for mercy Unlock your cellar door and let loose the demons You keep within the belly of your beast Win or lose, He will be there for you And he will call you by your first name Win or lose, I cannot comfort you Anymore than my touch can tell

Please don't waste your time on girls who claim they know everything about you Because their textbook told them to diagnose and carry on through We will walk the Earth in separate states, but I am only a phone call away. And I will offer wise words out of place for a girl my age. Someday you will be a rich doctor and the ladies will fawn for you, and you will drive outlandish sports-cars that scream 'vroom-vroom". And you will wake up every morning feeling better than the last, and your wife will thank you for your love no fingers pointed at you. So when you think about it this way, it doesn't seem so bad. Even cheerleaders get lonely. And someday you will have a family to sing to sleep and they will buy you ugly t-shirt that say things like "World's greatest father" and who knows? maybe you could be so I'll bite my tongue, And you will wear them out in public despite better judgement So when you think about it this way, it doesn't seem so bad. Even cheerleaders get lonely. And Peter cried wolf and I stand soaking in the same old sins, Oh give me my sin again. You've been known to put your ducks in a row Even cheerleaders get lonely. So please don't waste your time on this one, she didn't make you shine. And please don't mope around your apartment watching Freddie Prince marathons. There are better things that live on the outsides and ins of you And the things you thought never would be will come true.
