Track Name: Sweety
Sweety we'll get married on our old family farm
Sleeping in the garden our beloved bastard son
And you'll wear daises in your hair
And I'll follow you anywhere my dear

One day in September we'll comb our hair straight up
Roll up our pant legs and dance in the dust
Your mother's maiden wedding dress
You look just like she did when she wore it
The punch and cake it made a mess
From all the wild wedding guests we know

And I saw you smile
And I saw us smile
And they'll stay a while
Even as the sun goes down

And one day we'll get old and let our bones grow brittle
But I'll still be there when we are just souls
And you'll wear daisies in your hair
And we can float to anywhere we want

Explore the world in rocking chairs
The sun, the stars will simply stare at us
The Universe will sit and stare at us
Track Name: Want to
You work long
You come home
You go to bed
And sleep alone

You wake up
Your tube-socks
A stain glass
Window

But if you want to, I could show you
Everything I'm missing
But we don't do that, because don't you know kid
We've got a good thing going, going on

Shitty boxed wine in your bedroom
Never lasted more than a night or two

But if you want to, I could show you
Everything I'm missing
But we don't do that, because don't you know kid
We've got a good thing going, going on

Well this is me admitting everything
I hate your friends
And they hate me, and they're full of shit if they say different
But in the end I'm everything they lack
And oh, how I love that.
Track Name: Anymore
Breathe me in my love, I don't know you
Your shadow on the wall, it waits beside you
And I don't know you, and you don't know me
And I don't own you, and you don't own me
Anymore

Burn it all away to dust and ashes
I am so familiar with this process
Because you don't know me, and I don't know you
And you don't own me, and I don't own you
Anymore
Track Name: San Francisco
If you kept your hair long
Found San Francisco
Would life get easy
For you and me?
If I worked on weekends
And kept playing music
To rent an apartment near the, by the, next to the sea

Would we grow up wrong?

The basement
Is out of commission
We washed our dishes
And we let them dry
Empty your pockets
One night won't solve this
Now I'm on her mattress
I don't try, she don't try, we don't try

Would we grow up wrong?

Empty your pockets
One night won't solve this
Now I'm on her mattress
And I'm on the sea
If you kept your hair long
Found San Francisco
Would life get easy
For you and me?
