about

Songs about pretending things are okay when they're not. Songs written about John Hughes movies to avoid writing about the truth. Songs about ill-gotten sexual gains. Songs about trying to move on and hitting the wall of unrequited crushes. Songs about breaking up. Songs about breaking down. Songs about how wanting something is more pleasurable than attaining it. Not logical, but so often true. Originally released as an EP, presented here with six additional tracks (and omitting one).

Track Name: Teenage Love Song
It only lasts as long
As a teenage love song

One night
One dance
One kiss
One chance

It only feels like this
When it’s your very first kiss

One night
One dance
First time
Last chance

And the
starlight spins around you
all night it surrounds you
starlight spins around you
all night it surrounds you

Like a teenage love song...

True love fades as fast
As a slow dance lasts

One night
One dance
One kiss
One chance

And the
starlight spins around you
all night it surrounds you
starlight spins around you
all night it surrounds you

Like a teenage love song...

One night, one chance

Like a teenage love song...

And the
starlight spins around you
all night it surrounds you
starlight spins around you
all night it surrounds you

Like a teenage love...
Track Name: Dreamlife
Don’t be afraid
when you fall asleep
That’s when the love you give
Equals the love you keep

Don’t be afriad
When you start to dream
That’s when things really are
As good as they seem

It might not be perfect
It might not even be that good
It might not be safe and warm
But it’s something, it’s something

It might be full of danger
It might be full of pain
It might never feel like magic
But it’s something, it’s something

Don’t be afraid
when you fall asleep
That’s when the love you give
Equals the love you keep

Don’t be afriad
When you start to dream
That’s when things really are
As good as they seem

It might not taste like candy
It might not feel like silk
It might leave you cold and hungry
But it’s something, it’s something

It might not be good enough
But it’s something, it’s something
It might not be good enough
But it’s something, it’s something

Don’t be afraid
when you fall asleep
That’s when the love you give
Equals the love you keep

Don’t be afraid
When you start to dream
That’s when things really are
As good as they seem

It might not be good enough
But it’s something, it’s something
It might not be good enough
But it’s something, it’s something
Track Name: No One Is Listening
They say dance like no one’s watching
But someone always is watching
They’re judging your moves
They’re laughing their laughs
They’re watching you trip
And fall on your ass

They say love like you’ve never been hurt
But someone always gets hurt
And it’s always been you
Not the other way round
You don’t do the turning
You do the getting turned down

They say sing like no one is listening
But you know no one really wants to
Hear you falling off key
Hear you falling off key

They say live like it’s heaven
live like it’s heaven on this earth
but you don’t believe in heaven
You don’t believe in hell
Sometimes you don’t believe
In this world as well

you don’t believe in heaven
You don’t believe in hell
Sometimes you don’t believe
In this world as well

The world is falling off key
And no one’s listening
The world is falling off key
And no one’s listening
no one’s listening
no one’s listening
Track Name: Breaking Up, Breaking Down
You see it all over this town
People breakin’ up and people breakin’ down
You wonder what’s wrong with this crowd
‘cause people don’t give up, they get kicked around

I tell you to play a casual game
They can’t break your heart if you don’t know their name

‘cause you see it all over this town
People breakin’ up and people breakin’ down

Why do people even bother?
Falling into love is falling in hot water
They use hearts for cannon fodder
always lighting fuses, they seem to like it hotter

I’d tell you to build a wall around your heart
But you’re one of them and like falling apart

‘cause you see it all over this town
People breakin’ up and people breakin’ down

People breakin’ up and breakin’ down
People makin’ up and makin’ out
People fallin’ in and fallin’ out
People givin’ in and givin’ out

People breakin’ up and breakin’ down
People makin’ up and makin’ out
People fallin’ in and fallin’ out
People fallin’ in and fallin’ out of love!
out of love! out of love! (falling in and falling out of falling in….)

You see it all over this town
People breakin’ up and people breakin’ down
You wonder what’s wrong with this crowd
‘cause people don’t give up, they get kicked around

I tell you to play a casual game
They can’t break your heart if you don’t know their name

‘cause you see it all over this town
People breakin’ up and people breakin’ down
‘cause you see it all over this town
People breakin’ up and people breakin’ down
Track Name: I Don't Want To Be Your Boyfriend
I don’t want to be your boyfriend
I don’t want to go steady
I don’t want to be your main squeeze
you have two of them already

I just wanna be your lover
and not mean anything to you
less than even a hobby
just something you do

then we lay in the darkness
and your hair is a mess
and all of our sorrows
hurt a little bit less

I don’t want to be your boyfriend
and ask where you've been
ask where you're going
and ask who you've seen

I want to be that somewhere
you go to forget
you have a bedroom that’s blackened
with the smoke of regret

then we lay in the darkness
and your bed is a mess
and all of our sorrows
hurt a little bit less

I don’t want to be your boyfriend
I don’t want to be true
Just a lie that you’re telling
To the ones who really love you

then we lay in the darkness
and your hair is a mess
and all of our sorrows
hurt a little bit less
Track Name: It's Not Like I Never Hurt Before
I'm having one of those days
One long sweet, cloying ache
Like a tooth you keep touching with your tongue
But just below my heart
Just below my lungs

It's not like it's never hurt for
It's not like I've never before

I'm having one of those night
My skin just doesn't feel right
Staring at the bathroom tiles
Remembering your awkward
Apologetic smile

It's not like it's never hurt for
It's not like I've never before

Before I met you...
Track Name: Plenty of Fish
I'm not looking for a hot time
I'm not looking for a not hot time
I'm not sure what I'm even looking for
I don't want a virgin, I don't want a whore

There's plenty of fish in the sea
You can catch one with a net
You never know what you've got
'til you find something better yet...

There ain't no one better
There's no one close
If I have to die
I hope I overdose
On you
And your kisses
And your touch
And your voice
I try not to fall
But I have no choice

There's plenty of fish in the sea
You can catch one with a net
You never know what you've got
'til you find something better yet...
Track Name: Having + Wanting
The having
Is not as pleasurable
As the wanting
It’s not logical
But it’s so often true

So often true...

We’re lucky people
Not having what we wanted
And losing the pleasure
Of always being haunted

By what could have been...

You said you could feel yourself letting go
So I let the rope slip from my hand
Now no one’s pulling in this tug of war
It’s just a line drawn in the sand

Between the having and the wanting...
Track Name: Done With Crazy (dreambeat)
Everybody has little has little bits that get broken
Or fall asleep and can't be woken
There's nothing wrong with that
I'm just saying off the bat
I'm done with crazy and I'm not going back

I'm just saying
I'm done with crazy
Don't take it personally

I just figured out your roommate is your ex
You're trying to make each other jealous with sex
I applaud your goals
Find people to fill those roles
But I won't be one of them, no no, no no

I'm just saying
I'm done with crazy
Don't take it personally

I'm done with crazy
There's no use yelling
I'm not buying what you're selling to me

If what you wanted was a third wheel for your heart
You could have said from the start
Please don't be confused
I would not have refused
I don't mind being a whore
I just don't care for being used

I'm just saying
I'm done with crazy
Don't take it personally

I'm done with crazy
There's no use yelling
I'm not buying what you're selling to me
Track Name: Crush On You (dreambeat)
I wanna hold your hand
I wanna hold you hips
I wanna pull you closer
I wanna kiss your lips

if you wanna know what I plan to do
about this crush I got, this crush I got on you
if you wanna know what I plan to do
about this crush I got, this crush I got on you

I wanna brush your hair
I wanna chew your gum
I wanna hold your books
I wanna suck your thumb

I gotta figure out if it's really true
this crush I got, this crush I got on you
I gotta figure out if it's really true
this crush I got, this crush I got on you

I’m on the rebound and what’s that sound
the revenge train is pulling into town
she’s on the rebound, she’s getting around
the revenge train is pulling into town

can’t you tell me if it is really true
this crush I got, this crush I got on you
can’t you tell me if it is really true
this crush I got, this crush I got on you

This crush I got on you...
Track Name: Junior High Prom
I’m shy
And you’re hot
And all the guys you dance with
Are all the guys I’m not

I’m waiting for a window
I’m waiting for a chance
To get you alone and ask you
Can I have
Can I have this dance

What am I afraid of?
you’re not going to bite
well, I suppose that maybe
just maybe, you might

I’m waiting for that window
Waiting for my chance
To get you alone and ask you
Can I have
Can I have this dance

Can I have this dance
Can I have this dance
