about

The start of a 52 Song-a-Week project. The first thirteen weeks, thirteen trivial songs about love, little problems, and some hope. The precursor to what would be the most emotional year of my life.

Weeks 1-13. From May 17th, 2012 to August 9th, 2012. The poppy love hit, "Jessica's Song", to the morbid ballad, "A Deadly Secret".

This EP includes live hits such as "Applebee's Sucks For A Dinner Date", and "Matt Gould is My Spirit Animal".

Track Name: Jessica's Song
You make me happy
You make me smile
I haven't felt this alive in a while

I want to kiss you
I want to hold you
I want to make you stop feeling so blue

There's nothing I wouldn't do for you
I'm going to make you feel brand new

Oh ooh woah, I love you
Oh ooh woah, yes I do
Oh ooh woah, I love you
Oh ooh woah, yes I do
Oh I love you, yeah

Just let me look at you
I'll stare into your eyes so blue
I'll get lost in the trance of your soul

I want to be with you
I want to marry you
I want to spend my entire life with you

Let's cuddle under the New York sky
We can dream about flying so high

Oh ooh woah, I love you
Oh ooh woah, yes I do
Oh ooh woah, I love you
Oh ooh woah, yes I do

I never want to lose you now (Lose you now)
You're the best that I've ever had

Oh ooh woah, I love you
Oh ooh woah, yes I do
Oh ooh woah, I love you
Oh ooh woah, yes I do
Oh I love you
Track Name: Sleeping in Skinny Jeans
Playing songs at the Tuscan every Thursday
Stopping by your best friend's house for dinner
Having him heat up food for you
Doing the things that you want to do

#musicianlife
Crashing at Anthony's house
Doing what I do best
Sleeping in skinny jeans tonight

Playing drums for your band in Pine Bush
Cracking jokes every second you play
Skyping with your girlfriend during your breaks
Singing as loud as you possibly can

#musicianlife
Crashing at Kenny's house
Doing what I do best
Sleeping in skinny jeans tonight

Do whatever you want to do
I'm not leaving my pants for you

Spending the weekends at your girlfriend's house
Cuddling till the break of dawn
Making out in the middle of a cemetary
Getting pecked in the shin by a goose

#musicianlife
Crashing at Jessica's house
Doing what I do best
Sleeping in skinny jeans tonight

Sleeping in skinny jeans tonight
Track Name: Applebee's Sucks For A Dinner Date
I'm so entertained because
I did a jersey slide
And everything is so mother fucking funny

Do you even understand
How great my weekend was?
I'm feelin fine, oh so fine

Mountain Dew Code Red pumping through my veins
Nothing to lose and everything to gain
Playing with Anthony's stand up bass
Applebee's sucks for a dinner date

Do you even understand
How great my weekend was?
I'm just having so much fun
But she's gotta get back home

Mountain Dew Code Red pumping through my veins
Nothing to lose and everything to gain
Playing with Anthony's stand up bass
Applebee's sucks for a dinner date

Applebee's sucks for a dinner date (Applebee's sucks for a dinner date)
Applebee's sucks for a dinner date (Applebee's sucks for a dinner date)
Applebee's sucks for a dinner date (Applebee's sucks for a dinner date)
Applebee's sucks for a dinner date (Applebee's sucks for a dinner date)

Mountain Dew Code Red pumping through my veins (Mountain Dew Code Red pumping through my veins)
Nothing to lose and everything to gain (Nothing to lose and everything to gain)
Playing with Anthony's stand up bass (Playing with Anthony's stand up bass)
Applebee's sucks for a dinner date
Track Name: The Lakehouse
Running down as fast as I can
To get to the happiest place on Earth
Down by the big blue sky
And the biggest lake in the world

Where the air is pure and the grass is fine
And you've got nothing to worry about
It's gonna be okay you're gonna be fine
Just worry about these damn good times

Leave your worries all behind
Bad memories can't remind
Throw your troubles in the lake and fish them out for later
Just have a good time at my lakehouse tonight

Seven stories, nothing big
Nothing but a view of the forests
Thirty miles from civilization
Great way to get fucked

Sitting on a rock just by the lake
Strumming my guitar with a rake
Writing songs till the break of dawn
Playing chess with four pawns

Leave your worries all behind
Bad memories can't remind
Throw your troubles in the lake and fish them out for later
Just have a good time at my lakehouse tonight

Leave your worries all behind
Bad memories can't remind
Throw your troubles in the lake and fish them out for later
Just have a good time at my lakehouse tonight
Track Name: Bacon
I took an axe to a pig today
I chopped his head off and I threw it away

And I took his body and I threw it on the grill
Then I ate the body

That's what I call bacon
That's what I call bacon
Eating pigs that's called bacon
Fucking eating bacon

I took an axe to a pig today
I chopped his head off and I threw that shit away

And then I, I took his body and I threw it on the grill
I fucking fried that body

And oh, it smelled like bacon (I took an axe to a pig today)
Yes, it smelled like bacon (I chopped his head off and I threw it away)
Eating pigs that's called bacon (I took an axe to a pig today)
Wear a shirt when you fry bacon (I chopped his head off and I threw it away)

I'm fucking eating bacon
Track Name: You and Me
I'm so happy I found you
I can't believe that you're really mine
Just please stay with me for always
Let's go another 90 days

You're the brightest star in my sky
You're greenest piece of grass in the world
You're that delicious apple hanging high on the tree
And we'll always be you and me

You're a million times perfect to me
You're more prettier than any other girl I see
And I hope you know I plan to stay with you for always
We should relive the past 90 days

You're the brightest star in my sky
You're greenest piece of grass in the world
You're that delicious apple hanging high on the tree
And we'll always be you and me

I don't want you to think about Libby or Kaylee
I'm the only one for you and you're the only one for me

You're the brightest star in my sky
You're greenest piece of grass in the world
You're that delicious apple hanging high on the tree
And we'll always be you and me

Yeah, we'll always be you and me
Yeah, we'll always be you and me
Yeah, we'll always be you and me
Yeah, we'll always be you and me
Track Name: Probably, Somewhere
Probably, somewhere, there's a picture of me driving a treecar
Probably, somewhere, there's a picture of me crying my eyes out
Probably, somewhere, there's a picture of me with Libby Winters
Probably, somewhere, there's a picture of me playing guitar

Probably, somewhere
Probably, somewhere

Probably, somewhere, there's a guy with a million dollars
Probably, somewhere, there's a girl eating M&Ms
Probably, somewhere, there's a guy playing Nintendo 64
Probably, somewhere, there's a girl drinking Coca Cola

Probably, somewhere
Probably, somewhere

Probably, somewhere, there's a girl that hates my fucking guts
Probably, somewhere, there's a girl that wants to marry me
Probably, somewhere, there's a guy that admires me
Probably, somewhere, there's a guy playing at the Tuscan (Fuck yeah, here we go)

Probably, somewhere
Probably, somewhere
Probably, somewhere
Probably, somewhere

Probably, somewhere
Track Name: Three Hours of Sleep
You don't know when it's going to end
You don't know when it's going to start
Just do what you know is right
And follow your heart

Fly to the highest building in the sky
Swim to the deepest water in the sea
Dig a hole all the way to China
Go and plant a Chinese tree

Marry young and have a million kids
Blow your money on a tricked out van
Do what you want and fuck what anybody else thinks
Just be happy doing what you can

Donate your money to charity
Build a birdhouse for the parakeets and canaries
Scream as loud as you can when you jump into the pool
Just do whatever makes you cool

Marry young and have a million kids
Blow your money on a tricked out van
Do what you want and fuck what anybody else thinks
Just be happy doing what you can

Marry young and have a million kids
Blow your money on a tricked out van
Do what you want and fuck what anybody else thinks
Just be happy doing what you can
Track Name: Miss You, Love Oklahoma
It's only been a couple days
There hasn't been a single way
To get you here
So you can be with me
In Oklahoma

Run away from home
Come run away with me
I want tp explore
And run around in Oklahoma with you

I wish you knew that I want to be with you
I wish you knew how much I adore you
I wish I wasn't so far away from you
I wish I wasn't across the country from you

I forgot how much long distance hurts
It doesn't hurt as much as it used to hurt
At least we're not three thousand miles away
At least I can see you everyday

It's way too hot down here
I wanna go back home
Where I'm closer to you
And it's not so hot
And I can see you again

So come and rescue me from here
I'll distract the guards
Just carry me home
Kiss me goodnight
And never leave me again

I wish you knew that I want to be with you
I wish you knew how much I adore you
I wish I wasn't so far away from you
I wish I wasn't across the country from you

But it's okay
I'm coming home soon

I'm coming home soon
I'm coming home soon
I'm coming home soon
I'm coming home soon
Track Name: JP 07.17.2012
I know you care about me all the time
I know you love me a whole lot
But did you know
Did you know you complete my life

I love having you in my life
I love having you here with me
But did you know
Did you know you complete my life

Every day my life is filled with joy
Sunshine, rainbows, colorful toys
Ever since you popped into my life
And I made perfect memories with you

I stopped crying every night
Except for when I wish that you were here
And I know that I love you like you love me
And you complete my life

I think about you everyday
I think about what you could be doing right now
I love all the memories we've had
I want more, yeah you complete my life

I stopped crying every night
I stopped crying every day
Just because you came into my life
I never want to forget about you

Forget about you
Forget about you
Forget about you

Applesauce
Track Name: Muk Society
Fucking asshole

I wish you understood
If you could see it through my eyes
The way I feel, the way I think
Then you will truly realize

I'm not your stupid little boy
I'm not fucking five years old
I'll strum my guitar and sing about the way I feel
You'll never know how I feel up in here

No I don't want to move away with you
I don't want to become a doctor
I'll live my life the way I want
Why should I listen to you

I'm not your stupid little boy
I'm not fucking five years old
I'll strum my guitar and sing about the way I feel
You'll never know how I feel up in here

Why can't you support what I want to do
I didn't have a say when it came to you
Well you know what, fuck you
Fuck you fuck you and every single thing you've said to me

Fuck you when you said I was stupid
Fuck you when you said I couldn't make it
Fuck you I do what I want
Fuck you you do what you're told

I'm not your stupid little boy
I'm not fucking five years old
I'll strum my guitar and sing about the way I feel
You'll never know how I feel up in here

Fuck you fuck society
Fuck you fuck society
Fuck you fuck society
Fuck you fuck society

Fuck you
Track Name: Matt Gould is My Spirit Animal
I don't know much about you
Except that you play guitar
And Anthony told me that
You play a lot of Runescape

No I don't know much about you
I needed to write a song this week
But you know
There is one thing that I know

That you're my spirit animal
And nothing will ever change that
Don't listen to those other kids
You'll always be my spirit animal

You like John Lennon
You like Social Distortion
You like Stevie Wonder
You like playing guitar

You play with Bassett's Bridge
With those awesome motherfuckers
I don't know much about you
Except for this one tiny thing

That you're my spirit animal
And nothing will ever change that
Don't listen to those other kids
You'll always be my spirit animal

You're my spirit animal
Matt Gould is my spirit animal
Track Name: A Deadly Secret
Your mother wants me dead
At least not right now
But when she learns that you and me are two
She'll go after me and you

I don't feel safe at your house
I don't feel safe when I'm around her
I'll say something wrong
And she'll never forgive me

She will kill me when she finally knows
She'll strangle me with a garden hose
Cut me up into tiny little pieces
And feed me to you into tiny cups of Reese's

Your mother wants me dead
At least she will when she learns our secret
That you and me plan to run away together
Get married and live happily ever after

You're not safe at home
You're not safe around her
You'll say something wrong
And she'll never forgive you

She will kill you when she finally knows
She will slice your neck with thorns from a rose
Leave you to bleed and die silently and slowly
Cut you and serve you in forms of ravioli

She can't ever know our deadly secret
We can't tell her or face something we'll regret
It's between you and me and only our closest friends
I'll live and die with you until the very end
