I am a songwriter, and I want to tell the stories about humanity that make us uncomfortable. I try to feel all the feels, but mostly I just want to have a good time.

Track Name: Step One
Step One: dig up the money that you buried in the back yard
Step Two: you've got to get into your car and drive
Cause you've got to get so far
Cause man you hit her so hard

And I know that it wasn't all of your fault
She wouldn't stop talking shit
You didn't know what to do with it
She wouldn't stop talking shit
You didn't know what to do with it

It's time to check into a motel
Grab a six pack to blur out the details
And sleep and dream of her hair and teeth and fingernails
And all of the skin that entails
Cause you got to get so far
Cause man you hit her so hard

And I know that it wasn't all of your fault
She wouldn't stop talking shit
You didn't know what to do with it
She wouldn't stop talking shit
You didn't know what to do with it

Your best memory is you and her by the sea
Her lipstick and a picture that says "I Love You, Jamie"
Your best memory will only ever be
Her smeared lipstick and a reflection you can't see

She wouldn't stop talking shit
You didn't know what to do with it
She wouldn't stop talking shit
How you gonna live with it?

I'll digest it, I'll repress it, and I won't tell a soul.
Track Name: I Know
I know it's been a nice night
And we've got some cheap wine
To make it all right
So take off your Levi's
And we'll make it all right

I know you're scared, honey I'm scared too
If my father found out he'd beat me black and blue
And go to church tomorrow to give the devil his due
I know you're scared, honey I'm scared too

I know it's been a nice ride
So let's park it outside
And stay up till daylight
Fills up our eyes
Let's stay up till daylight

I know you're scared, honey I'm scared too
If my father found out he'd beat me black and blue
And go to church tomorrow to give the devil his due
I know you're scared, honey I'm scared too

I could be your Mary, this could be our Thunder Road
You could take me somewhere our dreams won't erode
Like out to the desert so our hearts can explode
I could be your Mary, this could be our Thunder Road

Just know someday I'll come back here to show my old man
What kind of power lies in the faggot hands
And I won't cry for my mother when she cannot stand
Someday I'll come back here, I'm gonna kill my old man.
Track Name: Forever and Always
They say, "You don't know what you've got until it's gone"
Well I know that's true
They say, "The night's always darkest before the dawn"
I'm scared I'll never see blue

But I love you
And I need you
And I love you
Forever and always
Those were the days

Well I say, "Do you ever think you'll get past your doubts?"
You say, "I don't know"
So I say, "Do you think I could just take you out?"
But you just stare at the ground

But I love you
And I need you
And I love you
Forever and always
Those were the days

If you can still see that house on Walnut Street
Us on the front porch drinking coffee
Then you can still see me
Maybe someday you'll tell me

That you love me
And you need me
And you love me
Forever and always
These could be the days
Track Name: Dog Days
Frankie went to Hollywood
At least that's what his mother said
Jenny disappeared for good
No one knows if she's alive or dead

Lola got married and
Had herself a couple of kids
Ernest couldn't stop the drinking
Till his liver finally quit

Then baby there's you and me
We're just trying to keep us afloat
But like a car underwater
We're drowning with no place to go

The salad days are over
And the dog days are here
Let's make this one last summer
We don't have to live in fear

Baby you're my bee queen and you've caught us in this trap
Of making hives and honey and making more from sap
But we can't keep production up with this demand
We've got bill collectors here with open hands

The salad days are over
And the dog days are here
Let's make this one last summer
We don't have to live in fear
Track Name: To a Husband From His Wife
Baby we've all got needs
I'll take you any way I please
When life brings you to your knees
It gets so hard to see

You're the best I could do
I love nobody but you
I never expected too much
I just needed enough

I don't need silver or gold
Just your hand to hold
To a husband from his wife
You're my blue valentine

What do you say that we spend our days
Putting in work into something that ain't worth
The time you put in

You're the best I could do
I love nobody but you
I never expected too much
I just needed enough

I don't need silver or gold
Just your hand to hold
To a husband from his wife
You're my blue valentine
Track Name: Give Me a Chance
Let me go and I will make mistakes
I will fall and yes I will break
I can't promise I'll amount to anything
But I can promise that I'll buy you that ring

Just give me a chance, give me a chance
And I'll show you I can

Show me something show me how
Show me anything right now

Just give me a chance, give me a chance
And I'll show you I can
Track Name: Where I Belong
Lost my heart in Asheville, NC
Got it back in Oklahoma City
I drove the coast for five hundred miles
And never saw the sea

Oh I'm back where I belong
Yes I'm back in your arms

Lost my faith in a bottle
Then I found it in Seattle
I flew over every mountain range
Discovered they all look the same

Oh I'm back where I belong
Yes I'm back in your arms

Left my dreams in Manhattan
Someday I'll get them back again
By car or plane or subway train
Someday I will find a way

Oh I'm back where I belong
Yes I'm back in your arms
