Track Name: transference (live at eddie's attic)
did i give you everything you needed?
did i shield you from the cold?
did i take the time to listen
to all the things i wasn’t supposed to know?

yeah, i know about your childhood
and what your cousin did to you
i don’t have time for your excuses
i don’t make time to play the fool

well, did nobody treat you right back home?
did somebody let you down?
well did nobody treat you right back home?
put your shoebox back in the ground
i don’t have time for your memories now

yeah i know what i’ve been missing,
yeah i know it isn’t you
i’m trying to find something that’s easy,
not fake the love you’re trying to prove

you think i like to be your counselor?
you think i love it when i’m right?
i don’t like knowing all the answers
takes all the learning out of my life

well, did nobody treat you right back home?
did somebody let you down?
well did nobody treat you right back home?
put your shoebox back in the ground
i don’t have time for your memories now

i’m not your doctor, i’ll never be
so don’t set your sights on marrying me
sure i understand you, yeah i know you best
but i’ve yet to find a girl who can handle my head

i don’t have time for all your problems
i’ve got heartache of my own
at least I found a way of dealing
outside of running or going back home

you found a place for all your feelings
in your shoebox in the dirt
well you try to express and get it all off your chest
every day takes a little more work

well, did nobody treat you right back home?
did somebody let you down?
well did nobody treat you right back home?
put your shoebox back in the ground
i don’t have time for your memories now
Track Name: bluegrass (live at eddie's attic)
well i thought you'd look pretty next to me
pretty shallow, i'm sorry
i thought i'd have you in the trees
not the flowers, but good enough for me

headed up, all was well in carolina
spending time every day we talked it out
but then a porch swing conversation sent you spinning
into orbit and spiraling in doubt

so let's put on some bluegrass and think about it
i'll read you a romance novel too
think about what all your friends are saying
it's only love that's waiting here for you

now you've gone and gotten yourself in a quandary
you need a man of means to get you to the end
you put your heart out on your sleeve to take a beating
but not a single simple text you'd wanna send

as your behavior shocks the likes of all your exes
and pushes them away it pulls me in
i have nothing but clarity around me
and no excuses for adults who play pretend

so let's put on some bluegrass and think about it
i'll read you a romance novel too
think about what all your friends are saying
it's only love that's waiting here for you

my buddy calls you late to talk it over:
"is this you? is this who you wanna be?"
i sit and write a song anticipating
and get nostalgic for the weekend in the trees

pretty faces don't deserve to do the crying
silently you blame it on yourself
but that's not yet the worst of it they tell me
cause here i am, another boyfriend that can help

so let's put on some bluegrass and think about it
i'll read you a romance novel too
think about what all your friends are saying
it's only love that's waiting here for you
it’s only love
