Track Name: Young Pup
drunk on a train at 10 in the morning
cos i cannot stand to be sober 'round you
but don't take it personally
it's not you it's me
it's not just that i don't like myself
i can't stand how you see me
so turn away
and i'll work on me
all i ever wanted was to be the older sister
who was all i ever wanted when i was a young pup
but now i see
that its me
who i wanna be
who i'm gonna be
who i need to be
who i'm supposed to be
Track Name: Lump Sum
probably been a lot of times where ive felt much worse
than i feel right now
but right now
all i can do is feel like this
and i feel like shit
when i wake up alone and afraid
of the things in my day
and what i've gotta do about them
i don't wanna deal with that
but i'm okay
i'm okay
i'm okay
i'm okay
probably gonna fuck this up but i'll give it a shot
i've got nothing better to do
dive head first in with your fingers crossed
you've gotta get lot to find the truth
of who you are and who you wanna be
who you used to be and the in between
when you find that out
please tell me how
'cos right now
i don't wanna be the lump sum of my parents heads, shoulders, knees
right now
i don't wanna be the lump sum of trees and of birds and bees
right now
i don't wanna be the lump sum
right now
i don't wanna be anything
but i am the things inside of me
not my shitty job or my lack of degree
and if someone has a problem with me
it's a reflection on them and not back on me
all i can do is breathe in deep and try hard to be the best version of me
right now
i don't have to be the lump sum of my parents heads, shoulders, knees
right now
i don't have to be the lump sum of trees and of birds and bees
right now
i don't have to be the lump sum
right now
i don't have to be anything
Track Name: Slow Growth
and the train
goes silent
what did you expect
it's the quiet carriage
and on the hawesbury river bridge
where i once saw jellyfish but no one believed me
and theres no bars on my phone
it's just me in here alone
and the encroaching business man i guess
he took both fuckin' armrests
but i'm still here
not in mind but in body
i'll do my best to embody someone
stronger than me
so i'm listening
to jen buxton
and the tears
are welling up
and i should not be out in public i know
cos i'm far from well enough
and it's distractions on distractions to occupy my brain
is 10am too early to be drinking on the train
cosi'm still here
not in mind but in body
i'll do my best to embody someone
stronger than me
and i'll just give it a go
i'll give it a go
i'm almost halfway here
and it'll be much worse to never know
so i'll give it a go
give it a go
slow growth
Track Name: For Me & For You
it's dark and i'm on the floor
can't get into my bed
and every bad thing that i've ever done
won't get out of my head
but i need to get better
for me and for you
yeah i'm gonna get better
for me and for you
and to my mum i'm sorry
i couldn't be who you wanted
and saara i'm sorry
i couldn't be who you needed
to myself i'm sorry
i couldn't be who you wanted
but it's starting to change
and you send me a message
saying you wanna die
just need me to read it
don't need a reply
and my meds have me sleepin'
so i can't stay up with you
like i used to
like i should do
and you sent me those letter
and i wish i could have kept them
but they were weighing me down
always dragging me down
and i wrote you this song and i hope it's enough
for me to say
that i'm sorry and thank you for everything
thank you and i'm sorry for everything
and if you saw me today you might not know what's changed
and i think its a good thing
no i know its a good thing
i wrote you this song and i hope it's enough
for me to say
thank you and i'm sorry for everything
