Track Name: The Bus Stop
we held hands
through the crowd
on the way
to the restrooms
we sat close
at the show
arm in arm and shoulder to shoulder
later at the bus stop
you reached for my glasses
and gave me the blurriest smile
i've seen in a while
Track Name: Down In The Bunny
we share the cat and the kitchen is a mess, isn't it?
i will pretend not to care, i don't give a shit
you are the best friend that i've ever had
and i'll call you a bear

we shared a porch and a homey and bar
he came for you from the farthest of far
you were the best thing that i ever saw
until i saw you for you

we had our nicknames and similarities
you had the row boat scraping up your knees
i was the pinnacle of best dressed men
and then i fell down again

you've got the house and the car, best of luck
i will not pretend to care, i don't give a fuck
you were the best friend that i ever had
and i'll call you a hare

we had our nicknames and similarities
you had the row boat scraping up your knees
i was the pinnacle of best dressed men
and then i fell down again
Track Name: Mint Tea
She said what are you doing here?
And I said that I wasn't sure
And she said why don't you come inside?
And I asked if it was alright

We had mint tea and sniffed around the kitchen
And blinked at each other in the moonlight
The shadows in Madison feel like a time machine
I have never been high

On anything or anyone like I am with you right now

She said I was forward for reaching forward
To touch her hand
She said I'll be your friend
And I thought that that was fair
Track Name: Romance Is Rubbish
we used to be strangers before we were friends
and i never knew that you noticed me then
a city without you seems so fucking impossible now

we used to be friends and then we were lovers
like snakes in the cushions or mice in the cupboards and no one could tell where you ended or where i began

we used to be lovers and then we were friends
it was so complicated before holding hands
lie on the bed and we'd lie to each other
and listen to Spoon while we spooned

we used to be friends and then we were strangers
sitting apart in the same movie theater
watching two people do everything
that we used to do
