loot or tie; mwahaha


a familiar face hanging out with a few others having a drink – or two – or maybe a few more – scribbles down a few titles of some of his favorite matt nathanson songs, right after i play mine on the jukebox

one of the many – answering machine:

met a new one and she looks just like you

she gives me everything that you didn’t want to
and maybe I don’t need saving after all
she sticks in my ribs almost better than you did
and maybe I’m tired or maybe she glows

I wonder if you’re still defending
I wonder if you’re still defending

I can fall alone if all
if I can fall away
you’ve been so wrong for so long now
I can fall alone if all
if I can fall away

met someone with your eyes and your skin
I can convince her of anything
and baby, it’s so delicious you should
come here and see for yourself
“I’m gone”, you said, “if this is all there is…
you’ll never shine alone

and I wonder if you’re still defending
and I wonder if you’re still defending

I can fall alone if all

and your new anthems that you breathe
and I’ve got you on my answering machine

cause I’ve kissed others lips
and they promised to heal me

it’s easy if you try, just try
