about

Yo, it's Dan. These are just some songs I wrote over what turned out to be a pretty shitty year, with the help of Emily Balcerak and Nick Johnson. At least whatever happened gave me something to write about. It wound up taking 6 months to record and mix due to various issues that kept popping up.

Track Name: It Wouldn't Be a 2003 Pop Punk Song if the Title Wasn't a Sentence
I wake up, think of your face
Take a shower, wish for a day
That we can see each other every hour
Of every day and have that stay
I’m failing out of math class
Cause I’m too busy thinking of you
Yeah, this is so fucking overwhelming
I just wanna tell you that I love you

And I don’t care how much of a tragic thing we are
As long as I’m with you I don’t ever wanna be apart

And I’m aware that I need you
But I’m not sure why I deserve you
Maybe in a past life or something stupid
I fucking saved the world
Cause that’s the only thing that’d make me deserve someone like you
Yeah, that’s the only thing that’d make me deserve someone like you

You’ve been drinking less for me
and I want you to know that I appreciate
That you’d do anything for me
I try my hardest to see
Why I matter at all, just for you
'Cause that’s what you want
But I’m too busy questioning every
Mistake and why I made it

And I don’t care how much of a tragic thing we are
As long as I’m with you I don’t ever wanna be apart

And I’m aware that I need you
But I don’t know why I deserve you
Maybe in a past life or something stupid
I fucking saved the world
Cause that’s the only thing that’d make me deserve someone like you
Yeah, that’s the only thing that’d make me deserve someone like you

I can’t handle your smile
Please stick with for a while
No matter what anybody tells you
You don’t have to move on
From your deadbeat high school boyfriend
I’ll never look at another girl again
I’ll tell you what you wanna hear
And you I’m always sincere

And I’m aware that I need you
But I don’t know why I deserve you
Maybe in a past life or something stupid
I fucking saved the world
Cause that’s the only thing that’d make me deserve someone like you
Yeah, that’s the only thing that’d make me deserve someone like you
Track Name: Are You Ready to Get Crazy? (I'm Already Hearing Voices!)
Now I'm on my own
Wondering when I'll remember
To stop making mistakes

I guess it's just in my nature
To fuck things up
It just kind of sucks

But now I know, I'm better off alone

Now I'm on my own
Wondering when I'll remember
To stop making mistakes

I guess it's just in my nature
To fuck things up
It just kind of sucks

But now I know, I'm better off alone

I'm done trying
Track Name: We Shot Harrison Ford
What do I have left?
Just some memories of former friends
And a few people who only pretend
I'm tired of staring out my window
Wondering where everyone went
Please remind me of my reason to live again

I would kill just to be wanted
I'd change out all of my insides
Just for anyone to care
It's your turn to do that this time
And I'm done with giving it my all
Just for nothing in return
You know damn well I'd do anything
But some you have to earn

So I drink away my problems
Cause I can never seem to solve them

What do I have left?
Just some memories of former friends
And a few people who only pretend

So I drink away my problems
Cause I can never seem to solve them
Track Name: Newport Pleasure
Making deals with the devil in myself
And I’m sure he will drag me down to hell
Making deals with the god in myself
Telling myself that I’ll be alright
It will all blow over in time

And I’m in his clutches now
And I can’t get out
Making excuses for every move I make
This was all one huge mistake

Making deals with the devil in myself
And I’m sure he will drag me down to hell
Making deals with the god in myself
I can already hear the church bells
They’re going away, they’re going away

And I’m in his clutches now
And I can’t get out
Making excuses for every move I make
This was all one huge mistake

Of epic proportions
There’s not one thing I can lean on
Just gotta keep going on and keep going on

Making deals with the devil in myself
And I’m sure he will drag me down to hell
Track Name: Whitney Houston, We Have A Problem
And if I ever catch my legs bleeding
I'll be sure to think of you
And all the things you do
To remind me that I'll never be as strong as you
Oh darling, I did what it takes
I guess you were only a mistake

It just hurts to admit
That this was all for you
Oh, it's true
I wish I was as strong as you

Do you think of me in afternoons
While you're wishing he still thinks of you
And how you are the usual?
Thanks for all the pessimism
Destroying any chance I had
Of ever getting over anything

It just hurts to admit
That this was all for you
Oh, it's true
I wish I was as strong as you

I'm growing tired of this
(Don't you think of me anymore?)
I wish I was as strong as you
