Track Name: (I Am) My Own GF
Wake up with the sunlight
And watch myself sleeping
Everything feels right
When I’m with me again
We had a joint birthday
You were very shy
I told me it’s OK
I’d be by my side

Cause I’ve felt alone for far too long
Even when my friends all come
And when my partners give me tongue
What am I doing wrong?

I am my own girlfriend
I do what I want to
Stay up every weeknight
And hold myself to sleep
Without you

Tried a new position
It didn’t come easy
But we were both patient
And took it real gently
I took me out dancing
We were the cutest grrrls in town
The dykes were all glancing
Let’s take them all home now!

Yeah it was all so out-of-sight
Now found someone to do things right
We bring home whoever we like
And never ever fight! :D

I am my own girlfriend
I do what I want to
Stay up every weeknight
And hold myself to sleep
Without you
I am my own girlfriend
I fuck who I want to
Stay up until daylight
And cry myself to sleep
Without you

But really I don’t have a clue
If I am better off without you
Just have to tell myself it’s true
Because it’s all that I can do
So to distract my mental state
I asked myself out on a date
And we had fun and
It was so refreshing // I was really crushing
No more guessing // Caught me blushing

Took me to the movies
We watched Captain Scarlet
It was pretty groovy
I took me home afterwards
Asked me in for coffee
How could I say no
But it made me sleepy
So I took me home

[KEY CHAAAAAANGE]

I am my own girlfriend
I do what I want to
Stay up every weeknight
And hold myself to sleep
Without you
I am my own girlfriend
I do what I want to
Stay up until daylight
And fuck myself to sleep
Without you
I am my own girlfriend
I do what I want to
Stay up late and talk shite
Pass out watching TV
Without you
I am my own girlfriend
It’s sad but it’s true
I love myself again
And I am so happy
Without you ((((:
Track Name: U-Haul Summer School
I had a wonderful night
When I met you for the first time
We had almost the same brain
So similarly insane
Such a refreshing surprise

I really thought you were cute
I was fangrrrl crushing hard on you
Kept it in for about
An hour then it came out
Thank god you felt the same too

But now my grrrl wants space
And my head's a state
And I don't know what to do
I wish I wasn't such a sucker for blue eyes & crew cut sides & tattoos

I had a beautiful day
Making out bein super gay
Gazing into yr eyes
Trying to work out yr mind
Had to tear myself away

You said you'd see me again
But in some time couldn't tell me when
And my intense inner dyke
Who lives for whirlwind delight
Wished the day would never end

But now my grrrl is sad
And my friends feel bad
And I wanna help them through
But I can't get away from thinking every single day about you


I know I'm too full-on
I pretend I'm strong
But I just don't think it's true
I'm just another sucker getting super hyped for somebody new

So now I'm walking back home
And it feels good cause I think I know
That we are on the same page
And I don't feel so afraid
We fucked/talked away the unknown

But then I think about my
Inability to do life
I know that I need to chill
I know that I am ill
Maybe I should say goodbye (but I couldn't even if I tried)

And this is such a mess
The one that I love best
Is distressed and feeling blue
And I'm really bad at helping
Cause I know that I am making
It worse whatever I do
So now I'm drunk as fuck
And I'm throwing up
And I'm feeling in too deep
So I'm gonna curl up, close my eyes and hope I die in my sleep
Track Name: Lovergrrrl
I left a little of my heart with you
Just a little, was the best that I could do
I want it back but didn't ask your name
I want it back and now I won't see you again
I gave you every single chance I could
Ran back to you, we made out like Hollywood
I RAN MY FINGERS THROUGH YR CREW CUT SIDES
YOU MADE ME SHIVER, YOU WERE EVERYTHING I LIKED <3

You want me grrrl, you told me grrrl, so come on grrrl,

Lovergrrrl, could you love somebody
Somebody
Somebody like me

We danced together like we owned the floor
And every second made me want you more and more
You made me feel like I was super cool
You went to kiss me, told me I was beautiful
We didn't talk, we didn't need to speak
Our bodies bound in sensual proximity
YOU RAN YR FINGERS THROUGH MY CREW CUT SIDES
SAID I WAS PERFECT, I WAS EVERYTHING YOU LIKED <3

So hold me grrrl, take me home grrrl, I'll be yr grrrl,

But lovergrrrl, could you love somebody
Somebody
Somebody like me

She could have be my lovergrrrl
But she was living in another world

I could have been your lovergrrrl
But you couldn't see my inner grrrl
I could have been your tomboi dream
If you had only seen me

Somebody
Somebody
Somebody like me
Track Name: Release Me
I lay silent on your chest and
Your breath shook me to sleep
You said you never slept
Then, so responsible for me
We were together every day
Our friends blurred into one
Second-rate person we liked
But needed to escape from

You were a ray of sunlight
In my bleak, black life
I needed to possess you
To rise out of myself
I was a poisoned orchard
You never recognised
Slept softly in my branches
I got you every time

You said it hurt
You said please release me
You said it hurt
You said please forgive you
And you were gone

After you, my hunger grew
But I could hardly eat
I stayed awake, I made mistakes
I faked it all for weeks
And I really hate to say
But I knew it all along
You taught me to be brave
But you're no longer the one

You always shone down on me
Like my own Jesus Christ
You were my sanctuary
I was your sacrifice
And soon I came to notice
Your hold upon my heart
I grew so suffocated
Made my grip twice as hard


I can forgive you
Each day a thousand times
But I can't seem to
Release you from my mind

You said it hurt
You said please release me
You said it hurt
You said please, please forgive me
You s aid I can't
And I'm so, so, so sorry
But it's tearing me apart
You said let go of my heart
And you were gone
Track Name: Games
'Boi', she said,
'I need you to know something about my life
I've got flowers beneath my skirt
And forests in my mind.'

I said, 'Does that make you sweet of sense
But in the brain completely dense?
Or do you have an STD
And a head full of worry?'

We strolled past the factories
Down alleys filled with fear
She said, 'You don't mean that much to me
But it's a little different here'

I said, 'Is that because everything's grey
And comparatively I look OK?
Or is it just because you're scared
And glad that someone's there?'

I don't know who you are
I don't care if you don't
I just hate being apart
(Or do) I just hate to be alone

'Boi', she said, 'Or grrrl', she said,
'Or whatever you are
You're pretty and you're witty
But I'm far superior.'

I said, 'That may be true, it may be false
It may just be rhetorical
Or it might be insecurity
Or maybe it's just me.'

I like that we're so shy
It makes what we say matter
Whilst yours is a complex mind
Mine's in the gutter

If I knew what you were really like I probably wouldn't like you much at all
But you've given me the liberty to make your personality from mind games and insanity
Admittedly I think you're kinda cool

We lay down, no one around
And stared up at the stars
She said, 'All my life I've dreamed of being
Right here where we are.'

And I tried to speak but no words came out
You blushed and tried to play it down
But I shouted so loud deep inside
You lit a cigarette and sighed
She said, 'Girl I want to tell you things
But I never think you're listening.'
I said, 'That must mean you really care.'
She smiled and said

'Well, yeah'
Track Name: Candyfloss (Trouble) [TW: drug addiction]
You taste like candy floss
And cigarettes
AND TROUBLE
Yr jeans are semen-stained
Don't be ashamed, it's natural
You taste like ice cream cones
And methadrone and vomit
Yr clothes are grey with ash
Yr strapped for cash and loving it

Oh my, sweet cherry pie, it's
Half past nine, Daddy's gonna ground me for a week
I'm nearly sweet sixteen
And Billie Jean
Is going to the prom with me
I might let him get to first base
But I know he wants to go a little further
Lucy Lou says I should too
But Peggy Sue says not to bother

She says IT'S ONLY GOOD WHEN IT'S ALL OVER

And you taste like candy floss
And cigarettes and trouble
Yr jeans are semen-stained
Don't be ashamed, it's natural
You smell like a summer's day
Also decay and addiction
Hair falling out yr head
Yr half dead and yr one in a million

Gee, school's a real drag
Daydreams in math
Drawing <3's on my diary
Billie's borrowing his Daddy's ride
Picking me up at five
And we're going to a drive-in movie
I might let him kiss me goodnight
But I don't want him to think that I am easy
Maggie May says it's ok
But Doris Day thinks it could look a little sleazy

She says you shouldn't give yr lips away so freely

And you taste like candy floss
And cigarettes and trouble
Yr jeans are semen-stained
Don't be ashamed, it's natural
You take my breath away
When you fuck me in yr girlfriend's bed
If you made me feel like a million bucks
I'd be so shocked I would
Drop down dead

Billie Jean is not my lover,
Did you hear what I said?
She claims I am like no other
She is almost brain-dead
Billie Jean's a fucking scumbag
AND I FUCKING LOVE HIM
Mary Jane says I'm insane
But I'm not even listening.

And you taste like candyfloss
And cigarettes and trouble
Yr jeans are semen stained
Don't be ashamed, it's natural
You wake up at 6pm
Cook ketamine for breakfast
You seem like Dorian Gray
But one day you'll look horrendous
You taste like candyfloss
And cigarettes and trouble
Yr jeans are semen stained
Don't be ashamed, it's natural
You work in smart hotels
Then we go on a shopping spree
I pray for any sign
Are you mine or is this lunacy?

And you taste like candyfloss
And cigarettes and trouble <3
