Track Name: Town Runner
On concrete lanes, forget things for most of an hour
All we said to scold each other for half of an hour

Even if I miss you, even if I do
Even if I miss you
It’s days like this one we’ll work through

You’ll move around the furniture inside,
Run this town from your door to the outside,
Move around the ottoman, sort of like you can’t decide what you want
So you let it stay another day
Track Name: Summer School Daydream
I fell in a summer school daydream again.
I was home, daylight on the move.
Drawn into imagining old friends again, in the halls,
It’s like I become the walls they pass by.

All things aside, I wonder why I change my mind sometimes.
At first I held my tongue, then I buried both of us with time and words.

I walked down to the stadium, there was nobody there.
I ambled on the yard lines, though I thought I wouldn't care
for faith to ask for answers, even if they don’t seem fair.
I know time has told good reason,
I have reasoned my way there once before.

It’s really not about me now.
Do you ever want to just get out of this mess we made?

All else aside, I wonder why I change my mind sometimes.
I’m sure you've driven here before, humming on the roadway or inside your room.
All else aside, you may never change your mind, alright.
Whether I move, whether I’m a stone, you know how it goes sometimes.
Track Name: Basement Halloween
Then you called to remind me, the sun was out but in retreat.
That Halloween, we were changing,
and I was fine, I was careless.

Why spend this time in memories you hate to remember?
Draw your only heart to what really matters.
Track Name: If You Were Mine (Shady Glenn Session)
Tell me darling, did we do it all wrong?
I’m talking to you nightly, over the phone
I have always gotta act so awfully young
To my surprise, you said that you were absolutely done

Everything I miss
The heart stolen from your lips
If you were mine, we’d take our time

I’m sorry my darling, we just did it all wrong
While I was talking, what I never said moved on
I have always gotta act so awfully young
I’m not surprised, I knew that you were absolutely done

Everything I miss
The heart stolen from your lips
If you were mine, we’d take our time
