Track Name: Fat Jodie
in a hungover shower
i quenched my tongue's thirst
the water warm and mellow
but colder at first

and we played first
i drank through your set
the car that took me home
couldn't fit a drum kit

i've been lonely i've been lazy
i've been gaining weight
i've been buying drugs
and trying them before it's safe

and you've been on my mind
like my skull and my curls
but i always see you out
with other girls

so come on fat jodi just give me a try
you know you know want to have someone on the side

so come on fat jodi just give me a try
you know you know want to have someone on the side


and that's me
Track Name: Perfectly Enamored
PERFECTLY ENAMORED

VERSE
F Bb C Bb F

Ever so slowly things will change
And soon your heart won't feel the same
And when you watch the final scene
And watch their car drive down the pike
It'll be too different from your life

Ever so slowly you'll get bored
Of doing coke with herbivores
And when you start to gain it back
You'll sweat it off on a high school track
The girls will think you took a class

honey you should teach a class
About talking shit and coming last
And when I buy the filming rights
they'll turn our story lilywhite
but i know what you're really like

CHORUS
F Gmin C F
Cause I've been
Perfectly enamored it's true
But perfect doesn't matter with you
whose side are you on

Cause I've been
Perfectly enamored it's true
But perfect doesn't matter with you
whose side are you on

VERSE
F Bb C Bb F

And you'll stop moving every year
You'll pretend you like it here
You'll pretend you're on my side
So content to live a lie
If we live it side by side

I like you better far away
But i know you always get your way
so i'll make friends with other folks
switch the honing on my scopes
Never call on Christmas day

and i'll always cry when i think of you
you're a tired lion in the como zoo
too much pride to make a change
skins too thin to ask advice
too much whiskey in your drinks

CHORUS
F Gmin C F
Cause I've been
Perfectly enamored it's true
But perfect doesn't matter with you
whose side are you on

Cause I've been
Perfectly enamored it's true
But perfect doesn't matter with you
whose side are you on

VERSE
F Bb C Bb F

Ever so slowly things will change
And soon your heart won't feel the same
From open book to charred remains
From best of friends to bad with names
From summit ave to 7th place

And you might think I'll love again
To remind my legs why they can bend
To keep my heart from losing steam
To keep my dreams from dreaming dreams
We'll disagree to disagree

CHORUS
F Gmin C F
Cause I've been
Perfectly enamored it's true
But perfect doesn't matter with you
whose side are you on

Cause I've been
Perfectly enamored it's true
But perfect doesn't matter with you
whose side are you on
Track Name: Hi, My Name is Ana
hi my name is ana

put your name on the list in chicago
went to beauty school now you're blow drying models
it's easy to see why i'm checking for you with your thick ass frame
i know that you think i'm only popping game
i'm stuck on you like a sticker reading


chorus
Hi my name is ana
welcome to chicago
and even if you ain't my man
i ain't a groupie for your band
you understand?

got a drink at the bar after the last band
low lights while the ice breakers happen
in a world where there’s just one night
in a city where’s there late last call
we found a rhythm between our trips
we found a number we could always call
we split the fare and a camel light
on the way back to portage park
when we got back to your place that night
you whispered soft in the dark


chorus
Hi my name is ana
welcome to chicago
and even if you ain't my man
i ain't a groupie for your band
you understand?


put your name on the list at the entry
smiled when they crossed you off the spreadsheet
came backstage bought while i wrote my set
-----(2 bar nonsense break)
we split half a joint
you said that you're on my side
honey you were there when my momma was sick
i was there when your momma died
there ain't nothing wrong
with the distance between our lives
but i wouldn't mind being closer to you
should the opportunity arise
but you ain't nothing but a midwest boy
i got my bags packed for the bay
tonight i'm too high to say goodbye
but i hope someday to say


chorus

hi my name is ana
welcome to california
it's easy in the winter sun
so visit on your vacation
we can still have some fun
Track Name: Free Change
FREE CHANGE
Lyrics



You know it's never easy
Staying up and waiting for you

I bet that's it's so easy
To be only ever thinking of you

And I don't need your money
cept for what you're paying me back

CHORUS:
Change change change change
Change change change change
changed all you wanted me to

gave gave gave gave
gave gave gave gave
i gave up when you gave up too



you drove me to my last day
at a job i shoulda never quit

you asked if i was happy
and if i was then get over it

walked into my bosses'
he told me i should stay here and work

i said it's never easy
it's only easy when you're making it worse

pause 1 bar

CHORUS:
Change change change change
Change change change change
changed all you wanted me to

gave gave gave gave
gave gave gave gave
i gave up when you gave up too



plain for all to see
broken beautifully
i left for brighter days
now i'm stuck here waiting

plain for all to see
broken beautifully
i left for brighter days
now i'm stuck here waiting

you know i bleed too easy
through the half heart you left me with
i try to bring it all back
i got half a mind to let you stitch

Change change change change
Change change change change
changed all you wanted me to

gave gave gave gave
gave gave gave gave
i gave up when you gave up too
Track Name: Good Things
got this feeling
when i heard your name the other day
couldn't say it
couldn't make it go away
it's a hard place
can't be friends we can't be enemies
it's just too much
i feel the weight crushing down on my face


the hardest part is things already said
getting better worse i cannot tell
why do good things never wanna stay
some things you lose some things you give away


broken pieces
try and make it good again
is it worth
it will it make me safe today?
it's a dumb song
but i'll write it anyway
it's an old mistake
but we always make it why do we


this time it'll be alright
this time it'll be okay


the hardest part is things already said
getting better worse i cannot tell
why do good things never wanna stay
some things you lose some things you give away
Track Name: Halfway Road
HALFWAY ROAD

Something comes over me
Whenever you go to sleep
Under my arms

Don’t want no blues to sing
Don’t want bad news to ring
Into our home

Just need your eyes to close
Before my eyes do close
And bring us to sleep

And when you wake up
You start to move your feet

Please don’t wake me
(please please don’t wake me)

I’ve got some time
Before I need to rise

Please don’t wake me
(please please don’t wake me)

I’ll wait until
sun touches on my legs

Please don’t wake me
(please please don’t wake me)

And when I wake up
I dream all day of

Please don’t wake me
(please please don’t wake me)
Track Name: US-SHL-13-00007 - Easy Enough
V1
If it’s easy enough for you baby
If it’s enough than just
Come and grab all your shit from
When there was an us

V2
If it’s easy enough for you baby
If it’s really all the same
Then when we’re through talkin’
Please don’t bring up my name

V3
I used to dream about you
But now I get more sleep
And when you wanted a break
I got to my feet

CH
So if it’s enough for you baby
If it’s easy enough to be
It mighta been hard for you babe
But it was too easy for me

V4
I just keep on thinkin’
((()))) About all the world I got to see
and you can still make your big plans
but you can’t make them with me

V5
And I just got one answer
When they come askin’ me
What happened to your old one
she was too easy for me

CH
So if it’s enough for you baby
If it’s easy enough to be
It mighta been hard for you babe
But it was too easy for me
Track Name: Sister's Wine
Sister's Wine


Verse 1
We were high,
But coming down,
One false move
We could have touched the ground

But you were young,
And we thought we were,
So we were fine

We were lost,
Where we got lost before,
One bad turn,
We’d have flipped the car

But it was clear,
In the evening light,
It was clear

chorus 1
My trouble is,
There’s nothing so good,
As how it tasted on my throat in the woods,
It was fine, it was fine,
Your sister’s wine

verse 2
We were late,
But you’d broke your clock
One more rev,
We would have hit the dock,

We were scared,
But you held it there,
On that quiet lake

chorus 2
My trouble is,
There’s nothing so good,
As how it tasted on my throat in the woods,
It was fine, it was fine,
Your sister’s

wine



we were scared ,
of what'd you'd say
but it doesn't matter now

we were old
and we knew we were
when we heard you say

outro
can't you see
this is not for me
we were fine
we were fine
your sister's wine
Track Name: Arbys and Sbarros
Arby’s and Sbarros

I read the note that you left
I can’t believe all the things you say
Matter of fact, maybe it’s time
To jog your memory
Wasn’t just, a year back,
I was flying into DCA
Getting freaky on the cab ride to your place
My legs sliding up against the plastic plate, but uh

CHORUS
can’t figure out why you’re leaving tomorrow
we used to be like arby’s and sbarros

VERSE
You trusted words,
Maybe I, masked mistakes, to make you stay
On the chance you’d make the same
wouldn’t that have made my day
I made my bed,
I suppose a lot of people got to stay the night
wasn’t the plan, I had in mind
but I always thought we’d be allright

CHORUS
can’t figure out why you’re leaving tomorrow
we used to be like arby’s and sbarros
Track Name: Without Warning
WITHOUT WARNING


I think somebody will tell
sooner or later
too many holes in the loop
no easy way to evade her
and if they find me i'll talk
i'll tell them how you were fighting
i'll tell them about us
the tourniquet tightens

i hope you're bleeding tonight
i hope it ends in the morning
i hope you think you'll survive
i hope it comes without warning

and when they brought up your name
i knew the reason
you made a doll out of her
you couldn't be decent
they mentioned things that i won't
they mentioned places we'd visit
and when i go there now
i'll have to think of the poison you've been giving


i hope you're bleeding tonight
i hope it ends in the morning
i hope you think you'll survive
i hope it comes without warning (TWICE)
Track Name: Nightshirt Divorce
nightshirt divorce

oh this old thing i know it,
doesn't fit right
but it's what i used to wear to bed every night
you might laugh at it now
cause it's all full of holes, full of holes
i know

but at night when we rest
while the ceiling fan works
and your body gets sweaty
and you turn and you jerk
i sleep through the night
in my oldest night shirt
and you wonder why
show up on time for work

and you wonder why i
want a change want a change
from the struggle that simmers
every night, every day

from the love that we opened
like ovens too soon
and seasoned raw meat
and consumed and consumed

until our problems
could keep us from sleep
you're not in love
you're on repeat

instrumental x2

oh this old thing i know it
doesn't fit right
but i wear it for comfort
not for you sight

not for something to whisper
when i'm brushing my teeth
to open the floodgates
to fine toothed critique

you tell me you're changing
you're changing this day
then tomorrow comes early
and fucks up today

and the next day's no different
and our frames start to freeze
until i'm watching myself start to leave start to leave

until our problems
could keep us from sleep
you're not in love
you're on repeat

refrain

oh i waited so long
to be your girl
but now i'm gone
Track Name: Being in Love With You
Hello, here's a mug,
I buy the cheap stuff when you leave town
But I knew, youd want a cup of your fancy brew
Baby I love being in love with you

On the days, when I work
You got a plate when I come home
I do the same when you're out working too
Baby I love being in love with you

And at night, When you sleep
I play my chords so quietly
I won't wake you, my darling needs to snooze
Baby I love being in love with you
extra repeat: Baby I love being in love with you

Solo (12 bars)

Hello, here's a glass
I got the wine with the stupid name
Have a glass I'll have a glass or two
Baby I love being in love with you
extra repeat: Baby I love being in love with you
Track Name: Cigarettes
Cigarettes


You’re too young
to stop smoking all those cigarettes


You’re too young
to stop smoking all those cigarettes


Maybe I could love you if you loved someone else
It’s just too much pressure to do it all by myself


you can take me home like we’re both leaving town
or we can sit around and wonder what we’re supposed to do now


without my inhibitions i sit dead on the vine
i need to make my own mistakes before i make up my mind


nobody said you’re easy, but you’re easy to please
it would please me just as quick if you turn round and leave


You’re too young
to stop smoking all those cigarettes


it might be time to just bum
but you’re so pretty, they’d all just loan you one


You can ask questions in the corner
And answer all by yourself
Or leave me like your ex
From every story you tell


I'm one for messy starts
With strings still attached
But if she made you feel good
make her take you back


I always thought you had the sense
to leave an open door
if you didn’t want me
why do you always want more


nobody said it’s over, but it’s hard to forget
that you raced to break a promise without breaking a sweat
