Track Name: Summer in Simi Valley
you were so brave back when we were kids,
you told that bully off, it was the best thing you ever did
class clown, running round, boy best friend
we hung out in your castle and you never tried to kiss me

I wrote you letters when I moved to the next state
you sent your picture, you told me I was great
we drove down to visit, we stayed up late
you had a girlfriend but it felt like a date

you said my lips looked soft and we kissed til dawn
and we walked on the beach and you sang me your songs

and I drove away and I fell in love
but you never wrote and you never called,
no you never called
Track Name: Kind When I Said
in the morning I met you,
one foot on the floor
and in the afternoon I thought I knew you,
I let go some more
and in the night, oh in the night,
my hopes were dashed and drawn
but it wasn't til many weeks later
I ran with my back to dawn

I opened from inside,
your pride came up,
you ran it through
you mistook me for kind
when I said it's all because of you

I tolerated for too long, for too long
pretending I was sated,
my head's strong, my head's strong
I swear this time, I'll listen to that voice
the one I couldn't get rid of
that insists that I have a choice

I opened from inside,
your pride came up,
you ran it through
you mistook me for kind
when I said it's all because of you

I opened from inside,
your pride came up,
you ran it through
you mistook me for kind
when I said it's all because of you

and you used all of your best words,
spun me some sweet truths
even my sweet tooth couldn't handle
and at the end of the day,
I knew that it was all because of you
I knew that it was all because of you
I knew that it was all because of you
Track Name: What Makes the Heart Grow
eugene, it's been so long since I've been around you
and I don't wanna make it like I found somebody new
but I've been around and seen different things

oh eugene, I'd be lying if I said I didn't miss you
but I ought to tell you there are ways that I've changed
and I don't know if I'll be coming back home.

I know that I will come back to you someday
I don't think this needs to be goodbye for good
but I know I need some time to do my own thing for sure
I know it for sure

oh eugene
Track Name: Hymn for Your Bedroom
sweet, sweetly as you come
and you were warm in your bed at dawn

before I feared the limits of
but you made room,
and I made room for you

slow, til I showed you how
you smiled when I furrowed my brow

you asked, I said please go ahead

sweet, and warm, and slow, you smiled
sweet, and warm, and slow, you smiled
