Track Name: Busboy blues
Did you take it with you on
your flight? And was it right next to you as you
slept that night? Or did you toss it on the floor?
Did you hide it in your dresser drawer? The note
I wrote but almost didn’t give to you.

I’ve got the busboy blues, I’d kill our boss if you asked
me to. I clean dirty tables for you. I like the way
you wear your hair. When you’re not looking, yes
I stare. I like the way you wear your hair. Cas,
Cas, Cassidy … I’m no good at communicating.
Cas, cas, Cassidy please acknowledge me.
Track Name: Note to self
I let you down. I always will. It was your heart I wished to steal. I have it
now, but what to do? Forever is a long time, but only forever will do. Get
over those girls that you sing about. You never cared for them anyhow.
So tell me, who are you trying to kid? I came home stoned, thought I
lost my key—had to wake my parents up from their sleep. Suburban
kids, they’re all on drugs—weed and pills and probably inhalants.

You were the first girl that I kissed, in that Mesa, Arizona grove of citrus.
After the dance we hopped into your sedan. I put my arms around you
in hopes the night would not end. You’ve got to stop singing about shit
like that. It never even happened that way, faker!
Track Name: Boys club
Boys club. It’s love, it’s love, it’s love. Boys Club. Give me a hug. Boys Club. No drugs, no drugs, no drugs. Boys Club—
It’s love. Boys Club. We listen to Morrissey. Boys Club. Everyday is like Sunday. Boys Club. Please stop me if you’ve heard this one before. How soon is now. We’re so well mannered and well behaved. If you’re a girl then you’re not allowed in this club. We’re so well mannered and well behaved. Boys Club.
Track Name: Purple bench
The sun goes down over our hometown. Superior. How I long to be near ‘ya. Meet you at the park. See you there after dark. I’m gonna kiss you under the stars. Be there at 7:00. 7:00 PM sharp. And don’t be late for our romp in the park! My broke down car guarantees me walking to wherever, wherever you are. Forever, I will be your slave. And if you won’t have me then I’ll go live in a cave. And I’ll leave society behind. But you’ll always stay on my mind.

A car drove by. Your friends saw me waiting for you. They were laughing at me. So I’ll take a seat upon this purple bench. I think I see you off in the distance. Could it be you here at last? Could it be you, the love of my life. I brought this guitar to play it for you. I wrote this stupid song as I waited for you. You broke my heart. You didn’t show. I’m done waiting for you now I’m gonna go back to the bar, back to Porter’s cafe, where I’ll get drunk and curse your name under my breath.

But I’ll really be missing you. I’m always missing you. Oh yeah, You. The very next day you will write to me, saying “I’m sorry, I got there at 7:30” Seems I just missed you, don’t think that I ditched you but I left Besich Park at 7:22. Forever, I will be your slave. And if you won’t have me then I’ll go live in a cave. And I’ll leave Superior behind. But you’ll always stay on my mind.
Track Name: Bluebird, stay down
You like
drinking beer while standing in the rain. Back when you
didn’t know me. I still knew your name. I knew your name.
you like making lists, but nothing gets crossed out. There
is a bluebird in your heart, it’s about time you let him out.

You like smoking cigarettes even though it makes you sick
but you don’t care you want to die, you have a deathwish.
But please don’t die because I need you. I love how your
smile brightens the room. It brightens my day. I think of it
now. I know everything will be OK.

There is a bluebird in
my heart, he wants to get out, but I’m too tough for him, I
say, STAY Down. There is a bluebird in my heart, he wants
to get out, but I’m too tough for him, I say, STAY Down.

You stopped wearing underwear, didn’t like the way they
made your crotch feel. Your friends thought you were
weird but you didn’t care. I sleep in a pitch black room,
don’t want to be bothered by the sun but you are like a cat,
sleeping wherever, whenever.
Track Name: Happy sad birthday
When I shook your hand I sealed my fate. The days pass so slowly so we wait and we wait and we wait. Our clumsy mistakes. The choices we've made. I remember the day that you fell for me, I remember the day that you fell for me. So here is your song. I never know what to say. Yes, here is your song, happy Valentine's day.

Fuck this house! Who cares about it?! This whole thing is dead so it's time to abandon you and this life, okay, that wasn't nice. I'll make it up to you. I'll make everything right. I'll become the guy you used to know. I was funny and sweet. I brought you flowers and then you said, "Get them away from me I'm allergic to daisies!" Well, then here is your song. I never know what to say. Here is your song, happy Valentine's day.

"A personal attack! How could you do that?!" Your best friend is off crying somewhere in the back. "And I've never known what love is but you make it so vivid, if I could write one like you then I think it'd be worth it. But sometimes, you take things way too far. Who do you think you are?"

So here is your song. I never know what to say. Here is your song. Happy sad birthday.
