Got a funny little feeling You know its enough for me You kick me when I'm down, love You know how you can be Now that you don't call me The seasons fly on by You know what you said You understand The reason why Yeah you must of had a reason I know you're as bad as me Trust you far as I can throw But it's a cripple's game They're calling all the strikes, dear And now its out for me You'd think I'd care, but I've been drinking I cant feel a thing She says its worse in the mornings But she only says it in the evening She sells convictions cause they're Only contradictions just the same
And I know It was a waste of three whole years Baby you act so cold Now I feel so old I know its been so long Baby I use you too Ain’t hard to do Its four in the morning Let me take you home I’m sick of damn near everything Sick of drinking alone And I know its been so long You know I need you too Its sad but true And it don’t matter any more
Shoe Stains 02:53
Its been three drinks since I could tow the line Slip back in the bathroom to fix your eyes Steal another red cup and fill it up You’re heading back to your place and ask me to come I Feel sick don’t wanna move Need you to take me home Least you could do is pass the booze And put your name in my phone I Gotta go reach for the door Get to the elevator And now your friends are wearing shoes Covered in dinner No time to lend a hand or apologize Safe leaning as I descend, I close my eyes The block seems like a mile as I stumble home Can’t even feel the cold as I walk alone
It all looks so nice That I want to fuck it up You chose the colors right But they decided to run It ain’t right, darlin’ it ain’t right You locked your troubles tight But I want to get me some You always say you're fine So the conversation's done It ain’t right, darlin’ it ain’t right And I don't care I don't wanna meet your friend Look at me - drunk, alone, and laughing You don’t need a reason I’ve got mine, enough for even falling apart Baby, its my art The words seemed polite But were meant to fuck you up You got the meanings right But you went a bit too far It ain’t right, darlin’ it ain’t right
Baby I said maybe We can't fight this feeling, it’s the first thing And lately I've torn myself in two Feel it coming, feel it falling around you I just want to talk, I just want to talk to you I just want to talk, I just want to talk to you And every word you say I know eventually That honestly its all I need To see it fall behind the scenes again She's a lady In the mornings She's down there making coffee, it's the little things She's late again and her footsteps say it, too You can feel her running, feel it all around you
Digging though her purse to check If she’s got any cigarettes left She gets it from her mother That and a couple other bad, bad habits I want to mess you around I want to tear you down She don’t realize that the things she does To ease her mind are The things her momma tried And they didn’t work back in ‘69 I want to ask you why I want to see you cry You look so pretty when you’re down And you’re begging Is that so wrong? So quit debating and get on With just living Is that so hard? She’s got legs that go for miles And she uses every inch of them And when she smiles You know she’s off and running I want to ask you why I want to see you cry

The Lately Appleton, Wisconsin

We met at a party in Madison. People told us we looked like a band, so we started one a few days later.
