Track Name: what's the point
i sit and read our texts
over and over again
there is not real point-
i can't hear your voice in my head :(

and some would say that's great !!
but i'm not so sure about that.
cuz i miss you a lot,
and miss me-i know you do not.

and i know i probably should stop
because i am not helping myself
but it's hard for me to stop
when i feel less than put on a shelf

and it's long past time to move on
so why do i still feel this way?
cause i'm silly and young, not mature
and i dreamt we would be so much more

so i lay in bed and reread
and i shed a couple of tears
and i ask myself what's the point?
but there is none- won't see you next year
Track Name: i love you so (walters cover)
i just need someone in my life to give it structure
to handle all the selfish ways i'd spend my time without her
you're giving me your love and you walk out and need another
i've gotta get away and let you go, i've gotta get over

but i love you so!

i'm gonna pack my things and leave you behind
this feeling's old and i know that i've made up my mind
i hope you feel what i felt when you shattered my soul
cause you were cruel and i'm a fool so please let me go

i love you so

:(
Track Name: truth of the matter
it's easy to look happy in all your pics online
because pictures are only taken when you're having a good time!

the truth of the matter is that when asked if you're okay
yea i'm fine's the easiest thing to say
with a tired ol' smile and the familiar lump in your throat
o i hope i hope you never end up in my shitty boat!

because the real answer is way too much
the real answer is way too sad
and all this talking about it makes me feel real bad

bad because you've got better things to do
bad because the awful things i'd have to say are true

the truth of the matter is that i'm not doing too well
and the last several months have been a living hell !

but i'm sure these awful feelings will one day go away
because that's what those i've spoken to have all had to say

and the next time i'm asked: how are you? ya doin well?
my chin'll be up and i'll say yup, as far as i can tell!
Track Name: just a couple o' qs
are we moving too quickly?
why are some pears prickly?
is it just me, or is it hot in here?
where were you this time last year?
when did you last strike a match?
am i becoming too attached?

i've got lots of things to ask
and these things all most never pass
til i've said all that's on my mind
but that don't happen most of the time

do you like my hair in braids?
why am i scared of big parades?
why does honey taste so good?
would i skydive if i could?
what do you really think of me?
why do i always have to pee?

i've got lots of things to ask
and these things all most never pass
til i've said all that's on my mind
but that don't happen most of the time

what's the next book i should read?
where will i plant my next seed?
why does heartbreak hurt this long?
why did i write this stupid song?
why don't i just speak my mind?
am i wasting all your time?

i guess i'm scared to find out
knowledge i'd rather live without
but living without it's just as bad
as hearing it straight and then feeling sad

i've got lots of things to ask
and these things all most never pass
til i've said all that's on my mind
but that don't happen most of the time
Track Name: my peach song
just a couple of days ago
the taste of a peach was one i did not know
and this was quite a surprise to me
how on earth could that possibly be ?

i went out to purchase some fruit
looked for a peach that was as cute as you

hand on my waist,
for my first taste
took my first bite,
felt like love at first sight
now all i wanna do
is buy a peach and share it with you

peaches are rad, they're soft and they're sweet
and cutting one open with you would be neat
to see your smile as you took your first bite
would be my heart's greatest delight

you would love it just as much as i
we could make ourselves yummy peach pie

hand on my waist,
for my first taste
took my first bite,
felt like love at first sight
now all i wanna do
is buy a peach and share it with you<3
