Track Name: Community Pool
Swimming underneath
With boyish certainty
I was dizzy and I couldn’t see the light

Weightless sinking blur
But a kick saw me back above
With water in my eyes

Everything, luckily, floating on swimmingly
Track Name: Maybe
On the fading walls
Are sunbleached photographs
They remind me of the places that I'm not

And I'm thinking of you
And maybe when I'm home
I will find my hopings are true

Now you talk to me
About all your mundanities

Maybe in a month
Or maybe in a year or two
Or maybe not at all
We will become

Asleep when you're awake
And dreaming of the day
When I dig a hole to Lansing from Hanoi

Some romantic comedy
Is filling my computer screen
And every time Meg Ryan speaks
Your face is all I see

Still you talk to me
And keep me thinking, maybe

Maybe in a month
Or maybe in a year or two
Or maybe not at all
We will become
Track Name: In the Meantime
Golf camp friend, you’ve done me in
Why’d I follow you here?
I’m bleeding on your Capri Sun
And choking on my tears

You lead me to the water
I slipped upon the rocks
I wouldn’t even bother
To try to pick me up

But in the meantime, while my memories get colder
I am ever never getting any older
In another summer, maybe I won’t have to go alone

The pudding’s hot and butterscotch
A slick and milky brown
With every bite the blood alights
Til red swirls all around

My baby teeth are doomed so
They’re barely hanging on
I’m staying at High Meadows
Til Momma picks me up

But in the meantime, while my food is getting colder
I am ever never getting any older
In another summer, maybe I can find my way alone
For now I’ll still need you to take me home
Track Name: Pathways
Morning brought to light my ambition
Folded in notebook sheets and whisperings of your voice
You wrote all your words under mine
A question I never had tried to find the answer to

Oh, you had me shaking
But I won't give you credit for that
You read from my back pages
And I erased the closing line

Pathways covered in fallen leaves
A call for approaching seasons passes beneath our feet
When we're free from the coming winter
Maybe you'll see that the fall showed signs of sprouting life

Oh, you had me shaking
But I won't give you credit for that
You read from my back pages
And I erased the closing line
Track Name: Seasons
Don’t miss a single day
Pass by me look away
But maybe someday later we’ll have words to say

And then we won’t again
Most of my closest friends
Eventually will fade into a memory

I have so many old friends
How can they all be golden?

Wake up before the day
Sleepwalking through a hazy dream
About a rest that’s very far away

When every season ends
Just to begin again
I start to see anachrony in everything

(It’ll never be again)
