Track Name: Build A Birdhouse Etsy Store In Your Soul
There’s nothing else inside my head but piles of stale confetti and the fears I’ll always have about not being scared enough. And one day it’ll all explode out burn down the room around me. And all the hatred trapped inside will leave me completely hollow

And everyone will know how much I don’t wanna be here. Being nice will never suit me.

And it’s these thoughts that find me here when I’m all alone wondering if there’s anyone thinking of me.

Once again I’m locked in my room pacing in my worn down foot prints that have worked their into my carpet on the nights I shut down. One thing I’ve learned getting older is no one will wait for you to try and get your head on straight. Some days I swear I’m almost there.

And everyone will know how much I don’t wanna be here. Being nice will never suit me.

And it’s these thoughts that find me here when I’m all alone wondering if there’s anyone thinking of me.

Just one wrong step and I’m back binge-watching Netflix and wishing that I was never born.
Track Name: I'm Doing Stuff, Lori. Things
Things are so much quieter now but that's OK they sucked before. This rooftop's ours, we're off tomorrow, and I feel like I can finally exhale. Things won't stay this good forever.

And these are the things I obsess over, things that always bother me and disappear when Friday comes.

So why do I feel so worried that you're the one getting the worst of this and you were probably right about what you told me: "No one's got time to help you through this."

Do you ever think all the things that had to line up exactly right to get you to the point in time you're at right now and realize there was such a little chance of it ever statistically working out?

And these are the things I obsess over, things that always bother me and disappear when Friday comes.

So why do I feel so worried that you're the one getting the worst of this and you were probably right about what you told me: "No one's got time to help you through this."

So let's hang out up here there's no place else to go on nights like tonight when the street below has calmed down we can hang like hungry ghosts.

We will try ignoring it.

The first time I put these chords I sang a song for the friends who left now I sing for the ones who stuck around.
