Track Name: Scabs
songs don't have to be sad
when you write them with your friends
when you pick each other's scabs

do you wanna be my sweetheart?

do you wanna hold hands on the j train?
go to a show, or get a bite to eat at my place
or maybe yours?

only if it's gluten free
i just want to be free
hey i'm okay w whatever
as long as it's u and me
Track Name: Floor
fell asleep on your floor
i wasn’t even trying to

listening to a cassette, made by a friend of a friend
his words speak to me more than you would know

i try to write a song like his but it never goes so well
dinner with my dad is delayed an hour and a half

and you’re still picking up your brother and sister
from their friends’ house

i am trying not to cry
and i am trying not to try anymore
Track Name: Buying Groceries
buying groceries with a toothbrush in my pocket
listening to free cake
i wonder what i’m gonna make for lunch
probably something you’d want
even though you’re not with me right now

you sleep all day
you don’t want me to open up the shades
until you go, joe
then how is my little plant supposed to grow?
Track Name: Ray of Light
they say you’re a ray of light
even though i saw you last night

sunlight bleed through the brown paper taped over the window
car horns travel up fourteen stories, how do they do it?

they say you’re a melody
how did i get so fucking lucky?
Track Name: Scully's Den
friday saturday night
walking with eric in the dreamlike light
past old churches sidewalk cracks
grass growing through
i'm glad i'm friends with you

maybe grab a slice
probably not
it's not gluten free

meet us at scully's den
walk from eric's around 10
wait a minute that's too late
get to scully's den at 8

crack open a cider find luke a rolling paper
scotts with avery pins on his hat
where the heck is that cat hiding?

sipping our ciders dancing to sip
and we talk to ali about dave
and all the fun times they gave us

sip is the best band in the world

meet us at scully's den
walk from eric's around 10
wait a minute that's too late
get to scully's den at 8
Track Name: Dreamlike Light
sometimes i like to take off my glasses
i wanna hold your hand and sit on the grass
i don't care if the ground wets our asses
singing his songs with Danny on the way back from western massachusetts
///////////////////////////////
my fingers lose feeling before
the L train late
outside the liquor store
wondering about Katie
///////////////////////////////
glow in the dark
and alive
the stars
are bright
i can see them
up north
you take out your camera
and try to see what its worth
you said you weren't sure
how all this was made
it was the glaciers
and everyone else
glow in the dark
and alive
the stars
are bright
mesmerized by the
quarry's might
you said you weren't sure
how all this was made
it was the glaciers
and everything else
Track Name: Great Canopy Reunion Tour
tim thom ben and sam
great canopy is a defunct band
st johns church with battle ave
what a great bunch of friends to have

when will they go
on a reunion tour?
we all want it bad
good times are to be had

beneficial tomatoes were incredible
when they played pleasantville music festival
when i was nine
i had a good time

what a good group of four
great canopy reunion tour
Track Name: Second Floor
fell asleep on your floor
i wasn’t even trying to

listening to a cassette, made by a friend of a friend
his words speak to me more than you would know

i try to write a song like his but it never goes so well
dinner with my dad is delayed an hour and a half

and you’re still picking up your brother and sister
from their friends’ house

i am trying not to cry
and i am trying not to try anymore
Track Name: I Guess
in the ocean
upside down again
nothing else to say
but i guess
you'll always have rockaway
i'll always have pleasantville in may

we'll always have our friends and the trains in between them
Track Name: Coney Island
we used to joke about stepping out of your door and going to coney island
and one day you went
spilled your coffee and took the Q
i'm sorry you were so upset
but i'm glad you made it to coney island
nonetheless

brighton beach boardwalk
sheepshead bay seas
next time
how about you and me?
we can go to the amusement park
bike on the concrete
shoot tiny basketballs
live by the sea?
Track Name: Friends in Bands
friends in bands
with friends in bands
with friends who are also in other bands

when i'm alone it feels like everyone knows everyone
when i'm at the show i try to have fun

when i'm with friends
with friends in bands
i try not to forget, to understand
how it feels

shooting stars on my guitar
i don’t mind my nail polish chipping off
kiss is the best band in the world
i’m in a middle school renaissance

i watch you wash down the shower drain
what did it mean when you said you wanna stay?
i hope we never run out of things to say

later we meet at myrtle broadway
