Track Name: Simple Surf Rock Suzie
Simple surf rock Suzie
Does she know that she’s a doozy?
She’s got her blanket, her book, and her short-shorts on
And a Kilty in a coozy
Surf rock Suzie!
Woah oh oh oh

We don’t really know what surf rock is
But Avey says labels are made for cans
Be my lazy baby, simple Suzie
you’re a doozy oh oh oh!

Simple surf rock Suzie
I asked her to the movies
Lugosi at 8 or Ponyo at 10? She said:
“I’m not that choosy!
Now play something bluesy!”

[guitar solo that isn’t really blues music at all]

We don’t really know what surf rock is
But we’re doing okay for a couple of kids
Be my lazy baby, simple Suzie
you’re a doozy oh oh oh!
Track Name: Luminarie
It’s the first step back
To recovering
It’s not as bad as you remember
But you remember everything

Candle in a paper bag
Soon to be catastrophe
Candle in a paper bag
Hold me like it’s meant to be

We lie down on our backs
She asks me if I’m happy
Bright as a luminarie
You remember everything

Candle in a paper bag
Soon to be catastrophe
Candle in a paper bag
Hold me like it’s meant to be
Track Name: 3 AM Warpaint
I can’t wait to spin some records
In our living room together
You can tell me about all the bands you like
Like the first time when you messaged me
At 3 am to ask if I like Warpaint
And I said I do, but really I was saying
That I just like you

You’ve been living in my mailbox
Darlin’ won’t you come in?
Won’t you come in?

You’ve been living in my mailbox
And I don’t mind the time alone
But every song sounds like it’s just on hold when you’re not here
Track Name: William Nye
You spent the summer swimming
Hoping your hair would turn green
Before you were old enough to buy hair dye

I spent the winter between
November and spring
Learning about heaven and praying to Bill Nye

William says it’s not magic, it’s just science
But I see magic in your eyes
William says it’s not magic, it’s just science
But I still love that Bill Nye the Science Guy

I saw the universe bloom
In my grandma’s spare room
Inches from a screen made in 1955

Now I’ve got my degree
But I don’t know anything
It’s a mystery, easier for Bill Nye

William says it’s not magic, it’s just science
But I see magic in your eyes
William says it’s not magic, it’s just science
But I still love that Bill Nye the Science Guy
Track Name: I Used to Have a Body Pillow but Now I Have You Which Is Different but Similar (New Chemistry)
You’re so good
At keeping it in
Glass jar
Paper skin
Wax heart
Bedroom eyes
Pick your poison
I’ve picked mine

Body pillow
A place to lay my head
I’ll write another song
About the ghosts inside my bed

I’d do anything to please you
Anything to please you
Anything to please you

When you pause
Before you speak
Takes a second
Takes a week
don’t wanna break even
So take what you need
Take a breath
Make it sting

Body pillow
A place to lay my head
I’ll write another song
About the ghosts inside my bed

I’d do anything to please you
Anything to please you
Anything to please you
Track Name: Fake Roses
I hope he’s okay with you coming home with roses
As long as he don’t know who grows them
How do they grow when the weather’s so drastic?
I guess it helps that they’re red silk and plastic

But I think they’re fantastic
You think they’re fantastic too
If they face the wastebasket
At least they spent a passing moment with you

Passing moment with you
Passing moment with you
Passing moment with you
Passing moment with you

I’m getting comfortable taking cold showers
Just one of my superpowers
And look I kept all this food in my stomach
I deserve my own Marvel comic

I wish I kept all the photos you sent me
I wish the mill was still the tallest thing in Tempe
I wish I couldn’t be happier
And my wish came true

I think you’re fantastic
You think I'm fantastic too
If I face the wastebasket
At least I spent a passing moment with you

Passing moment with you
Passing moment with you
Passing moment with you
Passing moment with you
