Track Name: dear john green
dear john green we fetishize blonde teens

it’s a metaphor, for better or for worse

dear john green we fetishize blonde teens

yr not a villain, yes, we know that children curse

dear john green i seen you cry on screen

oh i wish i knew what you were sad about

dear john green i seen you cry on screen

oh i really wish that i could help you out

(excerpt from the one “dear john” letter i regret the most /:)
Track Name: before i hated things
dear john green
i didn’t mean that
dear ex girlfriend
i didn’t mean that
dear girlfriend
i luv u & i mean it
dear world
please stop spinnin’ so fast
it makes me nauseous
i wish i was obnoxious
i wanna shout again
i wanna know what it was like before i hated things
Track Name: home is where the heart is so home is in yr chest
home is where the heart is
so home is in yr chest
broken homes means broken ribs
i’m hopin’ it’s a mess
mobile phones & mobile homes
i think that they’re the best
Track Name: relax, get scared
open doors & broken floors you fell right through the earth

& landed somewhere near australia

it’s no good to be so good at this you should’ve missed yr mark

& since you’ve never seen the light you’ll never know it’s dark

relax, get scared

you can’t see it but you know that it’s there

i just want a place to close my eyes in

nowhere to be nothing to see on the horizon
Track Name: perdido key
you took me out to perdido key & i got lost inside of you
don’t worry darlin’ you know i’ll always come right back to you
when i get sick i’ll make you sick we’ll go down together forever
you took me down to perdido key & i got lost inside of you
Track Name: "get over it"
get over it

cuz it’s over you

yr self-help books are overdue

yr mirror doesn’t recognize a sober you

the joke’s not funny

wastin’ coke on money

spending time with people who you thought would stick around

wasting time on people who you thought would stick around
Track Name: yr drunk & bored
friday night yr drunk & bored

i say “right” you left, yr bored

& yr so sad because you know that

this is all that life is ever gonna be for us

saturday nights all sound the same

you were lookin’ for a light then you found a flame

& yr so sad because you know that

this is all that life is ever gonna be for us

sunday night yr bored again

monday might be better than this

that’s what keeps you goin’

that’s what keeps you goin’

yr so sad because you know that

this is all that life is ever gonna be for us
Track Name: crocodile tears
my eyes they’re plain & brown

crocodile tears rainin’ down

but you don’t have to pretend to be sad

i’ll rise from the ashes of the urn that i burned in

i’m too young for love but i think i know about yearnin’

but you don’t have to pretend that you love me

you don’t have to pretend about anything
Track Name: i forget how beautiful that life can be sometimes
i’m so sick of cynicism i’m so sick of criticismm
i forget how beautiful that life can be sometimes
(broken things can be replaced
hope & sing, don’t feel disgrace)
Track Name: yr prolly right
someday yr gonna get hurt

i’m gonna laugh

bet the whole world, bet the whole world will laugh

someday yr gonna burn in the same hell as me

bet you’d have the nerve to say that i deserve it more

bet you’d have the nerve to tell me i deserve it more

& yr probably right, no, i know that yr right

i’m so sorry for everything
