Track Name: Wormholes
It's quite safe to assume
That I like you cos your perfume
Reminds me of a gift I got
For Christmas ninety eight
Dunno what I did with mine
And I can't travel back in time
You're a wormhole to the past
And if you want me to, I'll wait

Your hair, I like your hair
It's the way I'd like to wear it
On the road trip we won't go on
Until it's far too late
It's just something that I saw
When I camped outside your door
You're a wormhole through and through
And if you want me to, I'll wait

And I worry it'll never be tomorrow
The way today just keeps rolling around
So if I ever kill my wishful thinking
I'll be happy just to see the sun go down

In your biography
I'm not quite sure who I'll be
It's you across my calendar;
Your name by every date
As I rummage through your purse
I cross the days off in reverse
You're such a lovely wormhole
If you want me to, I'll wait

I worry it'll never be tomorrow
I worry if you want me to I'll wait
Track Name: Latent Teenage Fantasy
If I never liked you then
I just saw in you
A latent teenage fantasy
Like you we're the one
To rescue me from
The pains of being seventeen

Now I'm counting out my coins
Wondering where they could have gone
And I'm staring at my shoes
Wondering how to put them on

Wondering if I ever liked you
What if I never liked you?

I guess I'm adjusting
To this adulthood thing
But I can't help but feel the drag
These things that I knew
When I was at school
What was the point if they just held me back?

Now I'm counting out my coins
Wondering where they could have gone
And I'm staring at my shoes
Wondering how to put them on

Wondering if I ever liked you
What if I never liked you?

If I never liked you
Then what did I ever like?
Track Name: Karaoke
When you we're seven
Were you a better person?
Or did you just have fewer
Promises to keep?
Was it all in my head?
I guess you never said
You wanna be
You wanna be with me

At karaoke
I was feeling kinda lonely
I read your lips
And watched you from afar
Maybe I just had to
Get close enough to you
So I could hear you
Say that you'll be there

Maybe you don't know I'm still awake
But I figured I'd not been so shy
This time, for goodness sake
Still I know that if I blame you
You'll fall wounded to the floor
But I will not be the one
To hand you excuses any more

We're slowing down
Gonna put it to a stop right now
I'm running out of things I can defend
Maybe I had it right
And you were worth the sleepless nights
But I guess we're all worth nothing
In the end

I just wanted you to say that you'll be there
I just want you to say that you'll be there
Track Name: Bradycardia
You've developed
An almost independent need
To put things in parentheses
Even when you've said what you mean
When you do it
I take the words to heart, and then
A touch of bradycardia
Knocks me off my feet and to my knees

Maybe if I wanted
You'd embrace me like them
But I'm running at twenty bpm

I keep missing
The signs when I am running late
That say 'do not resuscitate'
It's too hard not to lie to myself

Maybe if I wanted
You'd embrace me like them
But I'm running at twenty bpm
