the Mountain Goats - Counting Songs For Bitter Children
one, two, two and a half
Stick around here, don’t make me laugh
Two and a half, three, four point five
A new day’s dawning and my hours arrive
I don’t even know what to say about this song. It took me more than an hour to track down because, as far as I’m aware, this is the only recording in existence and it was uploaded by JD to sendspace four years ago and posted on the mountain-goats.com forum, where sharing is, uh, a complicated business. I think it’s a shame to let a gem like this disappear, though, so here it is.
i love john he’s my number one idol
Logan Circle - The Wonder Years
I’ve been better, but I’m feeling okay.
I’m not even sad anymore, I’m just so tired most nights.
Day 108: Washington Square Park-The Wonder Years
I’m looking for the upsides to these panic-attack nights
where I’m staying in eating take-out food by TV light
I’m trying to play the b-side to this awkward life of mine
You could flip me over
I’d sing a few lines about how
I’m so used to shooting myself in the kneecaps
standing in the way of progress or letting down my friends
Hey thanks for everything
For putting up with me when I get cranky
I know I’m such a pain
And yeah thanks for losing everything with me
