Track Name: Friend
I'd like you to be my friend because you're pretty
Not only are you pretty, but you're pretty funny, too
I'd like you to be my friend so I'll feel pretty
And I'll tell funny stories like you do

I'd like you to be my friend because you're silly
But clever-silly, witty, and cutesy-silly, too
I need you to be my friend so I'll feel silly
And I'll tell silly stories like you do

But all I can say is stuff that you've said
But stupid instead and awkward and bad
And all I can feel is that you are real
And I am unreal and stupid and sad

I need you to be my friend because you're pretty
Not only are you pretty, but you're pretty funny, too
I need you to be my friend so I'll feel pretty
And I'll tell funny stories like you do
Yes I'll tell funny stories like you do
Track Name: Stupid
It feels really stupid
To think that you
Still keep me up
At night
Especially when
I've had a good day
And should feel pretty
Much all right
If anything
Reminds me about
Anything I miss
I can't fall asleep
And I lie there mulling it
Over until I
Cry like a sissy
It feels really stupid

But I don't like to think that you're
Sad or you're happy, no I
Don't like to think that you're
Sad or you're happy, and I
Don't like to think that you
Don't think about me
So I pretend you do
Yes, I pretend you do

Please say hi
As if you don't
Feel sick and sad
And sweaty
'Cause I will
Be friends with you
Whenever you
Feel ready
Track Name: Worried
What'll I do without
Friends who have cars or a
Phone or a job or a
Deadline
What'll I do without
You and your dinners and
Homework and your house
And mine
What if I lose all my
Money and somebody
Steals all my stuff and I'm
Starving
Will you come get me and
Let me freeload on your
Couch and support me and
Feed me and find me a
Job
'Cause I'm sort of scared
I'm a little bit worried
I'll die
Before I've seen anything

If I could live on the
Sand by the sea then I'd
Do it, I'd live there
Forever
If I could live in a
House in a tree I would
Live there forever and
Ever
But somebody owns all the
Treetops and somebody
Owns all the sand in the
Ocean
So will you come get me and
Let me freeload on your
Couch and support me and
Feed me and find me a
Job
'Cause I'm sort of scared
I'm a little bit worried
I'll die
Before I've seen anything
Track Name: Thing
The same thing happened
The last time I said
Track Name: Plain
Every time I sleep with someone
I feel less ugly
Every time I sleep with someone
I feel less ugly
Every time I sleep with someone
I feel less ugly
But only for a day or two
Then I go back to feeling gross and plain
'Til I go out and fuck again

Every time I write a song I
I feel less stupid
Every time I write a song I
I feel less stupid
Every time I write a song I
I feel less stupid
But only for a day or two
Then I go back to feeling dumb and plain
'Til I write one more song again
Track Name: Gone
I like movies and
I like parties
When I do stuff around you
I get happy
But I don't wanna
Ask you over
And I don't wanna show up
'Cause you might be gone
Or with your girlfriend
You might be gone
Or with your girlfriend
Gone
Or with your girlfriend

When I'm lonely I
Get frustrated
Why do things have to
Be so complicated
'Cause I do wanna
Ask you over
And I just wanna show up
But you might be gone
Or with your girlfriend
You might be gone
Or with your girlfriend
Gone
Or with your girlfriend
Track Name: Rule
I'm testing you
To find how you do
The things that you feel
The ones I don't understand
It's hard being around you
Watching you think
What do you think about
What do you think about
When I start to believe
That I understand
Why you behave
In ways that punish me
And punish me beautifully
Have I uncovered
The rule of the law
Of the way that you are

The rule of the law
The rule of the law
The rule of the law
Of the way
That you are
Track Name: Dog
Wenham is down
Beverly down
Portsmouth and Providence
Down, down
You can go home now
Allston is down
Waterford, Gloucester
Down, down

Cigarettes and dog
Cigarettes and dog
Lingers in the air after you're gone

Portland is down
Manchester down
Burlington, Haverhill
Down, down
You can go home now
Worcester is down
Newburyport is gone
Down, down
