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

Remember 02:44
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

Thank You 01:22
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

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

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
