Track Name: Gloom Growing
I know that it’s morning and I’ve not been reminded thoroughly yet of how painful this world is meant to be almost automatically. It feels like my heart’s growing in that it’s attracting each and every memory of you loving me as kindly as can be. And there are many to make my heart feel heavy. And circumstance considered, half this loving feeling feels like doom and the doom in the room stands out drunk in the corner. Gloom has been growing. My sleeves have been showing that I’m sad that you’re leaving. Take good care.
Track Name: Happy Birthday
Well, it’s your birthday and difficult to say exactly what that should mean to me. What a strange part of our lives to give so eagerly. We locked arms, lips, hearts, and thighs. We lived so lovingly. Happy birthday to you. Happy birthday, dear. I miss you so much. It’s difficult to say exactly what you should really mean to me. I was so glad to give the fistful I had to you. It wasn’t much, but at the time it was all I could do. I hope each and every best wish I could dream for you. We locked arms, lips, hearts, and thighs. Happy birthday to you.
Track Name: Hello From The Roof
We planned ahead partly, went to the store smartly before to pick out the colors we’d want to live around. Climbed on the rooftop to reach up toward the sweet by and by and our friends watch below as we try to make this place all our own – grown golden, together we’ll paint the moon. We will mend and mean it here where it’s warmly lit and we will drink to each other so far. Let’s make this place ours. Hello from the roof. Some Sunday night Now and Then. Stay up and lay close on the floor after we make supper with what’s around. Let’s found a farm fending for ourselves tending the ground, kneed seeds in along to the sound of our songs swung up and down, sung lo and beholden – we’ll make it now. We will mend and mean it. We will mean it and mend and we’ll send letters when we go away. It’s been the best day. Hello from the roof. I am thinking of you.
Track Name: Summer
You know how late summer does it to us all. We’ll try our very best to get ready for the fall. And I put my sweater on. And you put your sweater on ‘cause the summer’s almost gone. Our friends are watching exhausted, approving – timing unfortunate, but how dear. Let’s lose ourselves among them. We’re all right here. We know how late summer does it to us all. We tried our very best to get ready for the fall. And I put my sweater on. And you put your sweater on ‘cause the summer’s surely gone. I will come to where you are. I will come to where you are, but if you ask me to I’ll stay right here. I will remain reverently far from you.
