Darjeeling 03:19
The city towed my car the first night I got in At your favorite bar with the guy who owns it Oh it's just like you called it And oh you never got it Stay, keep me here for a while Stay, you can leave when you like Phases to ages and you're messing with my head, and I already do Phases to ages and you're messing with my head, and I already do Oh it's just like you called it And oh you never got it You’re writing your name on everything Walking up the stairs of your building And you’re still learning all the light switches, Sweeping your hand against the wall Stay, keep me here for a while Stay, you can leave when you like Running out of things in kind, running out of common lines Gonna get you overnight, gonna get you all the time Stay, keep me here for a while Stay, you can leave when you like

Dark tropical Brooklyn That heat won’t let you lie Boy arms around boy shoulders Dark curls above his eyes Nothing left to do But watch the street undo And watch with jealous heart How people fall apart so easy Skate boys with cuts are talking With shakes and broken phones Called home at 7:30 And pick your sister up Nothing left to do But watch the street undo And watch with jealous heart How people fall apart so easy Legs spread wide on the stoop Are they ever gonna talk to you? Shirt collar open loose Are they ever gonna talk to you? Nothing left to do But watch the street undo And watch with jealous heart How people fall apart so easy

Clovers 04:14
I know when to go I know when to go Take my time down the hall With my eyes up on the wall I hear my shoes and I hear my sigh I watch myself walk out from the light Clovers in my eyes The way the light falls on the bus on the way home Clovers in my eyes Trying to stay awake, trying to stay away Lying down on the grass Clover bed under my back Close my eyes in the middle of the day Close my eyes and it feels just the same Clovers in my eyes The way the light falls on the bus on the way home Clovers in my eyes Trying to stay awake, trying to stay away Clovers in my eyes The way the light falls on the bus on the way home Clovers in my eyes Trying to stay awake, trying to stay away

Habits 03:37
Got fat coming off your spit It goes around and around and around Black shoes coming off the dirt Kick down, kick down, kick down My woods, my road, it’s not enough to know you I’ve got my habits and I’ve got my time I’ve got my own, but not enough to show you Everybody has a season when you see them This is what you want, what you wanted Desperate to sleep but you stay up My woods, my road, it’s not enough to know you I’ve got my habits and I’ve got my time I’ve got my own, but not enough to show you Everybody has a season when you see them
5.
Saturated 02:48
I’m feeling woozy in the back Watching you talk and you laugh I could follow you talking that way I could follow you talking that way I’m saturated with you, with you I’m saturated with you, with you Stop at the corner store Set off the bell at the door Go back, go back to the back wall The pen in black written so small I’m saturated with you, with you I’m going back with you, with you I’m going away Nobody else would I’m saturated with you, with you I’m going back with you, with you
6.
Chinatown 03:12
You give some and you take a little It works out sometimes better than others Oh never got my chance to say it Oh but I can be so cruel Oh the light in Chinatown tonight Those are weaker days When I talk to you, when I say your name I can’t tell if I fell back asleep Those were weaker days, when I talked to you Sitting on a sink in the boys room Ducking their head to get their hair cut Nothing on the neck, nothing on the side It comes off so easy Oh the light in Chinatown tonight Those were weaker days When I talked to you, when I say your name I can’t tell if I fell back asleep Those were weaker days, when I talked to you

Teenager 02:46
Central Park West, west on 85th Tires on the sidewalk in gasoline spit Back to back I heard you shout and lose your voice Judas Priest a dream deceived drift lightly from inside, boy Don’t go crazy, don’t go crazy Don’t call me Baby, don’t call me Baby A Trans Am with a dashboard cam on your face Goddamn, and you got your name on your plates Think I can see your car leak, little bit from the right back rearview (She said, she said) Think I can hear you call me, cut it out man that's not cool Just like a teenager, sending me back Just like a teenager, talking like that You’re sending me backwards You’re sending me backwards You’re sending me backwards You’re sending me back Just like a teenager, sending me back Just like a teenager, talking like that Don’t go crazy, don’t go crazy Don’t call me Baby, don’t call me Baby

Geology 04:28
Head like a lit match, shifting your weight back Half tipping over, this isn’t over They just make noise, again and again and again And they’re just boys, again and again and again Oh skipping every other step, who knew what else was coming? Oh the kids all know your name, you spent your summers running Well guessing isn't knowing but everybody says that they know about you They're talking on the stoop, asking how we all do everything that we do And it's just noise, again and again and again And they're just boys, again and again and again Oh skipping every other step (every other step) Who knew what else was coming? (who knew what else what coming) Oh the kids all know your name (all know your name) You spent your summers running Oh skipping every other step (every other step) Who knew what else was coming? (who knew what else was coming) Oh the kids all know your name (all know your name) You spent your summers running

Casino Run 04:00
Take it slow, with a pocket full of quarters With a hand like that, he’s gonna win it all In the approach, locking eyes with the dealer Showing his teeth, he plays the old rules Oh and in the end, there’s not really an end Oh and when it falls, it isn’t worth it all Hey man, you can’t go over 21 Hey kid, I’ve got the most you know I’ve won, I’m done Other players start to gather round Big anger always draws a crowd Then it got loud He flipped the table and grabbed the dealer by his tie He looked behind him and said, Now people am I right? They nodded and they sighed, nobody likes to lose He said, We’re right (yeah), now we make the rules (now we make the rules) It smells like vanilla with cigarettes and rum Holding cards and cash between his finger and his thumb Do it, do it, do it, do it, you get what you want Killer, killer, be a killer, you come out on top He’s running the table The world can wait The cooler’s watching over, Is that all there is? Oh and in the end, there’s not really an end Oh and when it falls, it isn’t worth it all Oh and in the end (he’s running the table), there’s not really an end (the world can wait) Oh and when it falls (he’s running the table) it isn’t worth it all

Hutch 02:26
Alice Blue Gown stopped you downtown Saw your hair and saw your curls What you got, who you with, where you going? What you got, who you with, where you going? We can do better, we can do better than before (Better, better...better than before again and better than before again and) We could keep loving, we could keep loving some more (Loving, loving...love a little more again and love a little more again and) A body, body so different from your own — not to know it, not to feel it but sit beside it slow What you got, who you with, where you going? What you got, who you with, where you going? We can do better, we can do better than before (Better, better...better than before again and better than before again and) We could keep loving, we could keep loving some more (loving, loving...love a little more again And love a little more again and) We’re gonna treat you so much better Loud and shouting, getting out We’re gonna treat you so much better Loud and shouting, getting out We can do better, we can do better than before (Better, better...better than before again and better than before again and) We could keep loving, we could keep loving some more (Loving, loving...love a little more again and love a little more again and)...
