College Try 03:19
woke up and what a perfect day traced the rain across the window got high and lied to your face some would say I blow it every time and it's no one's fault but mine but I know we'll laugh about this in another life stay home but it don't make sense money's spent, accounts all zero get drunk and fight with all your friends guess I meant I fuck up every time and it's no ones fault but mine and I'm sure you'll laugh about this with some other guy you said you'd care for me now betrayed your rolling eyes you said you figured me out I said that must be nice because I can't even make up my own mind I can't even sort out my own life baby we gave it a college try maybe just remember the old times

Everybody 03:22
everybody's hiding feels like I'm out here on my own I hear them all conspiring so I call you on the telephone said, "if you had forever where would you go? I'm not being clever I just need to know" because I can't help but feel this way without you back and forth beneath these satellite blues if you had forever? oh you said you don't know if you had forever? oh you said you should go and you sing it like a love song but you're looking like a long way down i think you got it all wrong but you think you got it figured out everybody's hiding and I'm out here on my own staring down a pair of high beams i'm taking back the long way home we don't have forever, I know we don't have forever, I know but I can't help but feel this way without you back and forth beneath these satellite blues if you had forever? oh you don't know if you had forever? oh you should go...

Please 03:19

5.
near or far if I can't even remember just where the hell you are I'll probably find you there in the dark rolling in the embers it's just the way you are it's just what you always do let's drive home and settle down yeah, let's drive home and settle down here in my car I'd drive into the ether I'd go wherever you are but I know I'll find you there in the dark rolling in the embers your sentimental heart makes you make do with me
6.
i've been dreaming every night about you i've been dreaming so long but you never look the way I found you it's wrong, it's wrong, it's always wrong always wrong ooh you look good with your back turned now ooh it got different in this old town yeah I know it's over and it's really too bad I can't forget it no it's just in the back of my head you said it and you're sure to regret it this time yeah I know it's over and it's really too bad I can't forget it no it's just in the back of my head you said it and I hope you regret it this time

Backslide 02:05
feels like we're breaking up whenever the sun goes down this feeling's familiar it feels like we're cursed it feels like we're playing this back in reverse backslide backslide backslide backslide that's why we're making love that's how we make it work after all of the promises and all of the hurt we're both rolling home in the back of a hearse backslide backslide backslide backslide
8.
Boxes 02:08
I got this thought of you boxed up in my mind it isn't something new it's something that we used to be so it's only right I take what's mine and give the rest back to you sorry about tonight sorry how I used to be to you you'd be thinking twice about making eyes if you could see whats been on my mind all the shit that you let slide and all of the lies I tell you you'd be thinking twice about staying mine if you could see what's been on my mind all of the shit that you let slide boxed up and waiting for you

about

"That's why I can't blame Keisuke," he said. "I can't call him an idiot. I don't have the right. I'm not using my brain any more than he is. I'm the idiot king. I think you know what I mean."
"Do you want to tell me more?"
"No," Miyake said. "I really don't."

- Haruki Murakami. "Landscape with Flatiron". After The Quake
