Track Name: Partings
Well you look real dashing in your dollar-store aviators
Even though it's not sunny under the grain elevators
I'm drunk on black vodka and your sunset eyes
You're drunk on boxed wine and that other girl's lies
In a co-op off Creighton we retreated to the basement
Where a green bulb burned to the base of its filament
With dirt on our hems and the sun in our hearts
Our façades they did bend and on cue fell apart

And we all clapped along
To each other's songs
We knew she would be the biggest deal
And we all sang along
To feelings disguised as songs
Cause on the weekend we were equal

With the sound too low on a TV inside a glass case
Her Mom jumps on the lawn and Coco plays the bass
For years I've been trying to coax that look from your face
Her dad downstrokes a guitar and Coco plays the bass

And we all clapped along
To each other's songs
We knew Jenn would be the biggest deal
And we all sang along
To feelings disguised as songs
In second-hand shirts and last-ditch courage
We kept our heads down till Sunday morning
Cause on the weekend we were equal

Well you look real dashing in your dollar-store aviators
As the sun's comin' up over the grain elevators
Track Name: Fort Needham
I searched the north end for the last piece of your heart
It had blown up against a monument and got caught
Between a blade of grass and a daisy
Now it is cupped inside my hand where it is safe

Do you remember where you were when it came apart?
Was it carried away or did you let it go
Somewhere on the highway until it drifted
So far you couldn't see the point anymore?

If you were my love I would find everything that you lost
And we wouldn't be sad, not for a day
The only cost would be the fall

I put the piece inside a jar where it lit up
Sending light and heat out to the source of its
Breaking point between your cracked and aching ribs
Your bones cried out so I put it back in place

If you were my love I would find everything to make you well
And you wouldn't be alone, not for a day
When your fear swelled I would heed the call
If you were my love we'd beat it all

If you were my love I'd find everything you'd need to stay
And we wouldn't be sad, there's no way
I wanna be whole but I feel so small
If you were my love we'd beat it all

I searched the north end for the last piece of your
Track Name: You Think You Deserve That Pain But You Don't
Kindness in your voice does not make up for this
Settle in the moment and think hard
You could be the best person I ever know
Or you could be my love

Stop start stop start stop start stop go
Don't go don't go don't
You can't fall if you aren't holding on
So reach out for my love

All I've got to give you would fit in your heart
So break the glass and leave a lightswitch up
You might not see a single thing that you want
Or you might see my love

Stop start stop start stop start stop go
Don't go don't go don't
