Track Name: What Friends Are For
I want to be your friend yes—I really do
I want to chat and cry and laugh and always be there for you
but if we’re both tired after work and talking is a chore
—that’s ok—cause comfortable silence is what friends are for
comfortable silence is what friends are for

If you had to use the bathroom at a store or at a bar
you could leave your purse with me and i wouldn’t go that far
or we could go together, but we’d have to put our purses on the floor
but that’s worth it—cause talking while you pee is what friends are for
talking while you pee is what friends are for

I would let you know that I have got your back
but I don’t always need to tell if you if somebody’s talking smack
and if you get a bad haircut I won’t bring it up— cause that’s your—problem
and being pretty honest is what friends are for
being pretty honest is what friends are for

I’ll know your coffee order and I’ll know how to make it
and if you want a beer from my fridge you won’t ask, you’ll just take it
I will not tease you if you date a bassist
and I’ll be calm and quiet if I have to call you out for saying something racist

I’ll listen to you talk about your frustrating day at work
I’ll totally agree when you say your boss is such a jerk
and I don’t the whole story at all——but I’d take your side in a war
cause hating total strangers is what friends are for
hating total strangers is what friends are for
Track Name: Remember
You say that our love was so perfect
I say, “sorry, I don’t think we’ve met”
you laugh, and say lover, it’s josh from back in high school
and I say “oh yeah… how could I forget?”

you say since I left your heart’s been empty
you’re callin cupid, but his arrow won’t fall
you tell me that our love was written in the stars
But I don’t remember you at all

you tell me the pet names I called you
like “friend” and “hey buddy” and “jack”
you tell me you sent me your mother’s old ring
and if possible, she wants it back

I tell you that you should meet my boyfriend
he’s rich and he’s armed and he’s tall
you tell me that our love was unforgettable
But I don’t remember you at all

you say that you’d call every sunday
and we’d laugh til our faces were blue
you say that you’d tell me you loved me
and I’d say “I rnnnml you too”

but one awful weekend, you went camping
with no phone, friend, you couldn’t make the call
you’re sorry you ruined the love of a lifetime
but I don’t remember that at all

you say you don’t blame me for never calling back…
But I don’t remember you at all
Track Name: This Is My Jam
I like to eat toast with jam
you like to eat eggs and ham
and if you’re in we can be friends
cause I don’t have a problem with ham

I like to wear sweaters and skirts too
I like to do just what I want to
And if you don’t like what I do with my life
well, that’s great cause I didn’t ask you

This is my Jam This is my Jame
This is my Toast, This is my Knife
This is my Jam
This is my Song, This is my Life
This is my Jam

I’m gonna do this and if you don’t wanna do this
I’m gonna find somebody who wants to do this
because I am a person and you are a person
you should do what you want as long as nobody’s hurtin’

you’re not gonna tell me the songs I should write
and you’re not gonna tell me my clothes are too tight
cause I’m gonna love doing all my own stuff
and that love’s gotta come from inside

This is my Jam This is my Jame
This is my Toast, This is my Knife
This is my Jam
This is my Song, This is my Life
This is my Jam

I’d like to be eating breakfast with people that I like
With no one telling me the things they think I should do with my life

And like John Green tells us to imagine others complexly
I won’t judge you cause what you like has nothing to do with me
Track Name: Thank You
I’ve got the sun shining today
and I have shades to make the sunlight go away

I have friends near far and wide
and I’ve got internet so I don’t have to go outside

It’s tough, there are lows
there are times when life just blows but
at some point you realize
and it’s ok to compartmentalize
once in a while and say

Thank You
seriously
Thank You
I never thought that I knew
people who would selflessly support each other
and make life feel so breezy
I know this is cheesy
and I’ll go back to being snarky someday

but I wanna say Thank You
my family and friends, it’s just
Thank You
for sharing your smiles
and taking awhile
to make a connection that actually counts

Thank You
Track Name: Coming Home To You
I rolled initiative
when I woke up today
and I didn’t do that great
but I had to get up anyway

our ride was in the parking lot
it’s a rental car so new
and we drove and drove and drove
and we also drove some, too

and then we played a show for people
and we shook a lot of hands
and we role-played in this game we call “successful touring band”
and in the evening I crawled into bed at 10 or 12 or 2
and I wished that I was coming home to you

I ate Chipotle
for the second time for dinner
it was not the only option but
it was a winner

In the car we sang along
to Katy Perry and Pharrell
until the radio was static
and we pulled into the hotel

we sent a lot of emails
and we made a lot of plans
and we role-played this game we call “successful touring band”
and in the evening I crawled into bed at 10 or 12 or 2
and I wished that I was coming home to you

don’t say that I don’t love this life,
because you would be wrong
because every show is wonderful
though every day is long
And when the energy of meeting the most awesome nerds is through

I just wish that I was coming home to you

in the future I will teleport
till then I will make do
and I’ll wish that I was coming home to you
Track Name: Really Big Chickens
growing up isn’t fast
in fact it’s so slow you don’t even see it happen
I turned around one day to find
that I have a job and I have to do taxes

But I still like fun
and I still like games
and I still wanna know all the dinosaurs names

cause dinosaurs were just really big chickens
and growing up is just becoming a really big kid

and I don’t feel old, and I don’t feel together or like one of the heard
but I feel like I missed a day of school where we learned about money and how not to be awkward

I just need a YouTube tutorial that shows me how to get the life I’m after
Or I could just be the one who knows that this is too big to be a velociraptor

cause dinosaurs were just really big chickens
and growing up is just becoming a really big kid

so the time goes by quickly now
a lot has changed since I was a kid
there used to be something called brontosaurus
and dinosaurs didn’t have feathers but now we’re pretty sure that they did

covered in feathers, weird!
it’s gonna be ok.

cause dinosaurs were just really big chickens
and growing up is just becoming a really big kid
