Track Name: I Don't Know Why
fell asleep with my clothes on
left the radio on again

yesterday, no one came by
so i'll let it slide

no i don't know why
but i don't mind

in the morning i'll shake my head
and i'm out of bed

cut to a couple weeks now
still doing it again

no i don't know why
but i don't mind

burn effigies, we ran out of gas
we can't look forward, so we run to the past
Track Name: Weekend
me in summer jeans
who cares about degrees?
cover my knees and wait for a breeze

it's 3 am
we spent all day in bed
i'm gonna go out and see the sun again

i knew that
at least i still like your laugh

it's a perfect end
to this weekend
Track Name: Mornings
i dare you to be
defined by the mornings you sleep
so carefully next to me

the sun doesn't crawl in
it bursts

i know it hurts

i broke the blinds
i do this all the time

so who are you when you wake up
in the same quarter of hours you went to bed in?

there's a stack of work
papers and books
holds up my light
i touch it every night

i dare you to be
defined next to me
