Track Name: wearing shirts during sex
wearing shirts during sex isn't average i guess
but it makes me feel much better about the weird scars on my chest
and i wish more folks would talk about the little things they do
that might be weird, or unconventional, but help to get them through

because sometimes i feel so alone
and sometimes i feel like no one has secrets the way i do
and sometimes i think you all must love yourselves and awful lot
even though deep down i know that that's not true

now my friend marie refuses to wear clothes that have a waist
my friend brianna keeps a box of bandaids at each parent's place
you'd never know just by looking that they've got stuff going on
but that's the way that people are; we're always trying to be strong

and i wish more folks would talk about the things that they don't like
about themselves, the things that make them sick and keep them up at night
and it's not that i've got some weird obsession with people's self esteem
it's just that maybe if we talked awhile we'd learn to let it be

because sometimes i feel so alone
and sometimes i feel like no one has secrets the way i do
and sometimes i think you all must love yourselves and awful lot
even though deep down i know that that's not true

but sometimes i feel so alone
and sometimes i feel like no one has secrets the way i do
and sometimes i think you all must love yourselves and awful lot
even though deep down i know that that's not true
even though deep down i know that that's not true
Track Name: for my sad friends
i've been sad for a while now
i wish i knew the words that i should say
to all my friends
when they're feeling the same way

on days when my girls feeling low
i love you, here's a song to let you know
when my boy's feeling blue
i love you and i swear we'll make it through

you're not dumb and you're not lazy
it's not your fault i don't think you're crazy
don't i know it sounds cliche
but it'd mean the world if you would stay

here's the words i should have said
when you told me you couldn't leave your bed
the day you spent alone
cause i was out and wouldn't get the phone

and here's the words i should have said
when you told me you wished that you were dead
and all i had to say
was i waited, where the hell were you today

you're not dumb and you're not lazy
it's not your fault i don't think you're crazy
i know it's hard to leave your bed, so let me lie with you instead

you're not dumb and you're not lazy
it's not your fault i don't think you're crazy
don't i know it sounds cliche
but it'd mean the world if you would stay
Track Name: a daydream
where do you go when you're walking alone
with your brown paper bag, where is it you call home?

and where do you go after jumping the fence
is there some other world, one that i haven't discovered yet?

you are the one
always coming in last
i don't mind though
i'm not always this fast

where do you go when you're locked in your room
with the radio on, tell me what is your favorite song?

there's this dream that i have
where i get in a wreck
and my body's all smashed
and they thought i was dead
and then you turn the corner, you look like an angel
all white at the end of my bed

see you walk by
but i never say hi
cause you're kind of the best
and i'm not who i want to be yet

you are the one
always coming in last
i don't mind though
i'm not always this fast
