Track Name: intro
think about you all the time, it's embarrassing
think about you all the time, it's embarrassing
Track Name: young alex james
he's my favourite thing to photograph
his absentminded stance
and moody features
he's my favourite thing to write about
but no amount
of words can sum him up

he's my favourite thing to talk about
he's what comes out
no matter what i mean to say
he's my favourite thing to think about
he's on my mind
every second of every day

and i'm taking mental snapshots in my mind
cuz in real life i'm too shy
i'm writing poems on the internet
he hasn't found them yet

he's my favourite thing to photograph
even in the aftermath
he's always on my mind
he's my favourite thing to think about
wish i was allowed
to turn back the time

and i'm not a photographer
but if i were
he'd be the only thing my camera ever saw
as it is he's all i have eyes for

and i'm not a songwriter
but for him my pen just flies across the page
it's like i can't contain

and he's my favourite thing to photograph
he makes me laugh
even when he's not around
he's my favourite thing to lie about
hopefully
he never finds out
Track Name: indieboy
indieboy, with your eyes so blue
standing alone in a crowded room
you're in the back watching some girls play pool
i'm all in black hoping you think i'm cool

don't you know i've been watching
don't you know i've been listening

lead guitar with your skin so fair
indieboy, how can you compare
with the soccer team and the rowing crew
don't kid yourself it was always you

don't you know i've been wondering
don't you know i've been hoping

you're my best what if and my favourite regret
you're a waking dream and i can't forget, oh
indieboy, indieboy
the only one i can't avoid
the only one i can't impress
the reason why i'm such a mess

let me into your indie world
and i will be your indie girl

indieboy, with your eyes
so blue
don't kid yourself it was always you

don't kid yourself it was always you
Track Name: little alone
i've got my life in a suitcase
and one foot on the train
and i'd be leaving tomorrow
but that's too far away

i've got my life in a suitcase
and one foot on the train
and i'd be leaving tomorrow
but that's too long to wait

cuz i
need time
need space

and i was never
your number one
so by the time you wake up tomorrow
i'll be gone

i've got my life in a suitcase
and one foot on the train
and i'd be leaving tomorrow
but that's too far away

he said, people ask behind your back
why you're so upset
i said i used to know
but now i forget
i'm not saying it's your fault
i know i'm in the wrong
i just wish we could go back
to when we got along

but it doesn't matter
anyway
you don't love me
so i'm running away

i've got my life (people ask behind your back)
in a suitcase (why you're so upset)
and one foot on the train (i said i used to know
but now i forget)

and i'd be leaving tomorrow (not saying it's your fault,
i know i'm in the wrong)
but tomorrow's not today (i just wish we could go back
to when we got along)

i wouldn't be leaving if you asked me to
stay
Track Name: body comparative
light eyes, dark hair
i'm getting sick of all the stares
rosy cheeks and pale skin
i don't know why i let you in

full of love and full of hate
the line between thinner than my waist
shoulders back, arched spine
i never know if you are mine

sad and lonely but i stand up tall
you talk big but you act so small

despise our ties, can't let them go
you're in my veins and on my bones
