wanted nothing but to hear it sing so i
turned the dial til our bodies were ringing
now i'm sitting on the side of the shoulder
thinking if she's thinking of me
face down on the kitchen floor
spent a year drunk as the day i was born
so burn it all down and start over
it comes easier now that i'm older

oh no baby won't work no more
but it was good when it was working before

wanted nothing and nothings free
i think you and I got the same disease
you were sitting at the top of the stairwell
i was fumbling around with my keys
funny how it only lasts for a minute
but it matters more than all that other shit
i will meet you somewhere after it's over
it comes easier now that i'm older

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.
