yourbestasiangirl a blur of feelings that gives me anguish and, at the same time, the ability to let go of it Favorite track: Means To Me.

annie this album manages to be dreamy, healing, and grounding all at once. i've come back to it again and again over the past year - the opening chords of Countless always make me feel like maybe things will be ok. Favorite track: Countless.

BikeBoy29 A beautiful melancholy is sewn through this album, honest and heartfelt and never affected. Chiming guitars and a voice with warmth. You might think it is perfect indie pop on a casual listen, but the lyrics run deep and the music is carefully nurtured. A wonderful record for those reflective moments. Favorite track: Snow Globe.

Countless 01:33
I tried moving closer to the city thought maybe you would see me more than once a week, a month, a year, then I moved away quietly still hoping you would talk to me through the colder months of fall but you never called you never called I’m driving around mostly trying to feel like I’m getting somewhere, but when I hear you on the radio I feel like I’m nowhere at all I know I haven’t moved at all
2.
Getting By 03:45
getting by, I don’t need to know what it feels like I don’t want to be forgiven ‘cause only you can make me feel like I need something else to do unless the truth comes spilling out of the dark you breathe in I know I know, I know you’re moving it’s your faults they can’t see but don’t think I wouldn’t notice I don’t think I’m ready for it I don’t think I’m ready for it I don’t think I’m ready getting by, I know I want to work hard I don’t know what I’m working for tell me I’m doing alright tell me I’m doing alright tell me I’m doing alright only you can make me feel like I need something more to do and that’s the truth something inside me forgets that I’m alive enough, I’ve had enough I’ve had enough I’ve had enough I’ve had enough I’ve had enough I’ve had enough

Snow Globe 05:23
radiator breathes and sighs “they’re not your, your, your people” they don’t see the same in me that they see in you the last time I was driven away looking back at you, baby (aren’t you better off without me rooted in your town town town) how could I have seen all there is to see and now I’ll crawl back the same way that I came in flooding the streets lay down my leaves at your feet the last time I was driven away looking back at you, baby (aren’t you better off without me rooted in your town town town) you pass the time on the edge of a roof kicking at the sun for me (aren’t you better off without me rooted in your town town town) the last time I was driven away looking back at you, baby (aren’t you better off without me rooted in your town town town) you pass the time on the edge of a roof kicking at the sun for me (aren’t you better off without me rooted in your town town town)

Sweetheart 05:34
high school sweetheart, don’t wait too long to marry- well you’re married now ten years since I’ve seen you climbing out of my dreams and your hair still swirls around me and your legs are crossed inside me throw me out, and call it distance I still hate it, this town you left me if you’re alone, what am I? if you’re alone, what am I? told you, about my first kiss in the rain out of cvs since then I’ve found what I’m worth to myself throw me out, and call it distance I still hate it, this town you left me if you’re alone, what am I? if you’re alone, what am I? thought you’d write to me when this was over did you think of me spinning in the palm of your hand? ‘cause I think of you way too often looking out every window that I can all my life, I could see it the little things I see in you small town quiet, I could live it if you could live it too
5.
Empty Bottle 01:47
empty bottle I never meant to taste every sweet sweet memory empty hearted I never meant to leave before I gave you all that I owed you know it’s not what I want
6.
in the morning I step foot in my hometown and I wonder if you’re still around sitting by the side of the road in your eyes, the world turns slow our love never was anything, save face, give it up all the years you lived your life all the years I’ve done you wrong, I’ve done you wrong these streets you gave me in the water, you saved me don’t say I don’t care you’re the only one who’s there you’re the only one who cares
7.
Forever 04:05
forever on the road don’t it get lonely? you’re out playing music, I’m on my next delivery if only I could be the light you look for in the mirror inviting the warmth before you go to see her as long as you know, I won’t be here waiting for you to come home I won’t be here waiting for you to come when I saw your ghost, you told me to be courageous I’ve looked for you ever since in the sunlight of the houses we lived in if only I could be the light you look for in the mirror inviting the warmth before you go to see her as long as you know, I won’t be here waiting for you to come home I won’t be here waiting for you
8.
Means To Me 03:44
hey, guess I should’ve known I’d end up alone, and in time all of this will fade we wanted it, it must mean something time with you and me, remember? gold light feels right home sweet home what it means to me if you hold me close would you feel anything would it make you cold? and if I float over you would you see right through? gold (summer’s) light (over) feels (hope you’re) right home (too long) sweet (I don’t) home (know) what it means to me home what it means to me it’s been two weeks since you first told me I’m burning up in the backseat said she must be a nice girl, baby while I’m just waiting for somebody else to hold me
9.
Monarch 03:56
wait, I know it’s not true feel it still within you but I can’t say it’s alright hate, runs deep in me forged in every ending a fabric I can’t sleep in I don’t know you I don’t know why I come just to see if you’ll have me if you’ll have- cain, if only I was able to carry the love in you I watched over you a puddle of concrete blue a piece of the sky to steep in I don’t know you I don’t know why I come just to see if you’ll have me if you’ll have me and if you let me I will crawl back in my bed, but if you love me I won’t know what I am cain, if only I was able to carry the love in you
10.
The Last 04:00
I don’t think that I could ever be the one you remember dead of night under your porch light close your eyes and say goodbye for the last time I don’t think that I’ll find another once and always a goner driving down through our state lines while you dream I’m thinking of a name to go by
