Track Name: losing touch
it’s so goddamn easy to lose touch
i’ve been around but i haven’t been around that much
do you think i’m losing it do you think about me at all
if you call i’d answer but you never call

and i don’t answer
too busy thinking about natural disasters
and i don’t answer
too busy watching everything shatter

i miss talking to you or anybody honestly
i take the train just to watch strangers be lonely
do you think i’m losing it do you think about me at all
if you wanted to and i wanted to we could talk

but i don’t answer
too busy thinking about crumbling plaster
and i don’t answer
too busy watching time turn faster
and i don’t answer
too busy waiting for everyone to scatter
and i don’t answer
too busy looking for what comes after

it’s so goddamn easy to lose touch
sorry i haven’t been around it’s always just too much
Track Name: u lived in a lighthouse
You told me not to interrupt your listening sequence
But I wasn't aware I could interrupt with silence
I told you I wanted to mean something to you someday
Did you ever write that poem about me? It’s fine if you didn’t

When you asked me, I was thinking about yo
I was thinking about how I’d rather not wake up tomorrow
And how it’s been days since the sky has been blue
I was being honest, I realize now that you were too

When I asked you, you were thinking about me
Ways to stop being restless. Ways to stop being lonely.
Where my hair falls on my shoulders. Do we kiss in the movie?
You were being honest, and then I stopped talking

You were in a rough place, I was in the same space
It was poor timing, we should’ve bought matching watches
You were in a rough place, we could never talk face to face
It was poor timing, did we miss it or was it always a mistake
Track Name: the saddest song
i know you’re better off
i wish i was better back then
i can’t stand nostalgia
it makes me wish things were different

i lose everything in autumn
always have and always will
i’m sad about the things i miss out on
and smoke cigarettes on my windowsill

i know that this is pathetic
i haven’t changed at all
i hope that you just forget it
i was young and you were a close call

and if i asked you how you are
would you tell me you’re okay
and if i asked you anything at all
would you reply or leave me hanging

and if i asked you how you are
would you tell me you are fine
and if i asked you anything at all
would you ask me why i didn’t try

this is the saddest song
for when i was seventeen and stupid
everything i do is still wrong
it’s too bad things didn’t turn out different
