about

Features Ashley Gold on Vocals. I wrote the start of these lyrics freshman year in college. I then imagined a big marriage breaking up over seemingly futile issues.

lyrics

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
