Track Name: home alone
~Home Alone~

last night
in a dream
you said you never loved me
i woke up
in a sweat
i woke up feeling ugly

time 
won’t fly
i know that’s what she warned me
she knows
she’s wise
she almost cries when she tells the story

i can’t do anything right
except stay up late at night
and all the stuff you gave me
is hidden in the laundry
but i can’t hide the songs there
or the way you said you liked my hair
and when i walk home alone
i don’t feel safe on my own

maybe
she’s nice
i might like her if i knew her
but for the moment
i feel sick
when you’re gone it might feel better

i’ve just 
got to try
try and continue to be
all of the things
that i/you used to like about me

i can’t do anything right
except stay up late at night
and all the stuff you gave me
is hidden in the laundry
but i can’t hide away there
and a stranger said he liked my hair 
and when i walk home alone
i don’t feel safe, but i feel strong

hey, do you remember
everything you were
i’ll give myself until december
to stop sighing when i see ya

i can’t do anything right
without a good night's sleep tonight
so yes, sleep on the mattress
i don’t care if your back hurts
so i hope that it was worth your time
cos you took two years to change your mind
now when i walk home alone
i don’t feel safe, but i feel strong
Track Name: miss me
~Miss Me(diam)~

i think it’s mainly me i miss not you
but that doesn’t mean it doesn't hurt me to
think about you waking up with someone new
i don’t really wanna know what you two do

being kind means more than having plans
so i don’t feel bad about feeling bad
i have time i’ve got years ahead
i’m getting better at forgetting all the things you said

there was always a line
between your mind and mine

it might mean as much but it couldn’t mean more
do you still wear all the shit i bought?
or have you “moved on” from it like me?
i think i’m better than i used to be

perhaps she doesn't cry as much as me
or if she does she doesn’t let you see
once you told me that you wouldn’t be
where you are if it weren’t for me

there was always a line
between your mind and mine
and i think you lied

(it’s cool that i’m not cool enough
not cool, not all ~art school~ enough)
Track Name: slow
~slow~

i like your voice and the way you talk to strangers
and when you talk to strangers i like how your voice changes

cos there’s something in your words
that tends to make me weak
and so i think in thirds
and get nervous when i speak

and there’s an ocean in my veins
wind and leaves blow through my brain
when i hear your name

i like your height and how sometimes it’s hard to see you
and i like the night even better when i’m with you

and there’s nothing i can tell
you haven’t heard before
but still you listen well
and i couldn’t hope for more

and it’s the timbre of your speech
the way i feel it in my knees
i can’t wait one week
but I will
Track Name: humphrey bogart
~Humphrey Bogart~

when we started
i was addicted
i wanted to know you
i was like liquid

i didn’t know why
you’d give me the day time
because in my mind
there was a long line

i lay awake at night
making up scenes in my mind
you were like humphrey
too good to be

i got jealous
you sent me your stories
they were about her
but you didn’t owe me

i wrote in my diary
‘i don’t know if he likes me’
but then at the tram stop
you asked to go with me

i lay awake at night
pretty in pink on my mind
i was like duckie
you couldn’t want me

it took a long time
for me to know why
you burnt the tacos
but they tasted fine

i’m sorry i doubted you
that i ever did so
it was the best thing
i want you to know

i lay awake at night
you were by my side
you were all things
enough for me

i started to feel it
you started to scare me
i began to feel lonely
a bit prematurely

the night when you told me
that you weren’t happy
i’ve never been sadder
never entirely

i lay awake at night
you on my mind
you were like humphrey
too good to be
Track Name: vegemite toast
~Vegemite Toast~

i don’t want you to see what you do to me
i don’t want you to know that i cry when i think about you saying goodbye
i want to be strong
i’ve been this way for too long
i’ll try to let go
but it’s hard to forget what you know

i’m through being blue
i want to feel like i used to
it’s not what you do
it’s who you do it to
you said it so
it’s time you let me let you go

do you think about me before you go to sleep?
have you found someone new to say goodnight and send your songs to
i’m not alone
but i sometimes feel i’m on my own
have fun when you’re gone
i don’t know how i’ll feel but it’s done

i’m through being blue
i want to feel like i used to
what can I do
do you miss me too?
but i guess now i know
it was time you let me let you go

you’ll find someone new
but i hope your mama liked me better
you said i was your favourite thing
i love vegemite toast but i liked you better

i’ll go get drunk with my friends
but that’s not the kind of thing i do
this is how it ends
with me wishing that i could hate you
