  • Streaming + Download

    Includes high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more. Paying supporters also get unlimited streaming via the free Bandcamp app.

    This album is pay-what-you-like-including-nothing! That means you can have it for free, or pay me a million dollars for each track, if you feel like it. However, if you pay less than $1 for the album or for any individual track, it all gets eaten up with Bandcamp and Paypal fees and I get nothing (so you might as well enter 0).
    If you don't like using Paypal, feel free to download the album for nothing and then buy a CD at a show!

When we met I knew I'd seen your face before in the future once I was so sure that you'd remember How can I convince you I'm the one? Every day I try to remind you of the things we'll do one day You'll get it soon, you're awfully clever But for now it's hard to make you stay And I know you like I know the back of both my hands You and I one day we traveled here and far to distant lands When you're with me things won't have gone wrong Until then I'll sing my river song You have told me all your secrets That you can't tell anyone Our love light's an unlit ember We'll burn bright, but now you turn and run Even when you're near I'm wishing You'd coming walking through that door Save me from the past and present In the future we'll have so much more And you know me like you've known no one else in your time Lord I know we'll get there someday The wait though, is a crime When I'm with you things won't have gone wrong Until then I sing my river song Each day of my future is our past Each one of your firsts will be my last.

When I was a girl I wrote silly love songs I now regret That favorably compared me and the boys I liked to Romeo and Juliet But now I'm older and now I'm wiser and now I recognize What real, functional relationships look like So it should come to no surprise that I want you to be the Harry to my Sally Can you be the Zoe to my Wash We could be like Han and Leia 'Cause I know you love me Like Willow loved her Oz (I will fight you) Be the Phroso to my Venus Or the Westley to my Buttercup We could spar like Benedick and Beatrice I know we'd never get enough If we had fictional love Pour me a gin and tonic and I'll be the Nora to your Nick You could be Scott Pilgrim to my Ramona Flowers if I grew my hair like this And if either of us had to die Tragically or otherwise I'd rather be your Hazel Grace or your Angel Dumott Schunard You could be the Zero Cool to my Acid Burn Or the Ron to my Hermione We could spar like Lizzie and Mr. Darcy You know just how it would be If we had fictional love I don't want a fairy tale or a tragic love that ends in tears Don't lead me on like Aragorn Just be my Faramir We could ride your scooter through Monmartre Like Nino and Amelie Or dance across the rooftops If you'd be the Bert to my Mary You could be the Phroso to my Venus Or the Westley to my Buttercup We could spar like Benedick and Beatrice I know we'd never get enough If we had fictional love Oh you could be the Jack to my Sally or the Gomez to my Morticia or the Strider to my Sai or the Chase to my Gert Or the Stephen to my Bang Bang or the Booga to my Tank Girl Or you could be my Little Prince and I could be your rose

It was the fall of 1968 and I was 13 years old Sitting by the telly on Saturday night Waiting for a world to unfold Full of spacemen and monsters, adventure galore And a girl who was just like me Suddenly danger erupted and I Jumped behind the sofa so I wouldn't see She and Jamie clung to the console spinning through nothing at all (clap clap, clap clap) As the camera revolved around my jaw dropped the floor Because I saw Zoe's Silver Spacesuit I'm sure I shouldn't feel the way that I do But her button nose is so cute Zoe, could I love you? She was so clever, so smart and so rare She was all I wanted to be Nobody else could ever compare To the girl from Station W3 Oh I couldn't tell my friends, I couldn't tell my mum Nobody would understand me How my feelings could be so strong For that girl from the 21st century If only the Doctor would visit me and take me through space and time There's only one place that I'd want to go The year 2000 would suit me fine Jamie's nice but he's just a boy she was so much more As that console revolved around my jaw dropped to the floor When I saw Zoe's Silver Spacesuit I'm sure I shouldn't feel the way that I do But her button nose is so cute Zoe, could I love you?

I'd run out of steam before ever catching up with you Your tenacity is quite admirable, but there's always something you can't quite do If you keep on chasing the stars in your eyes You'll never find anything, what a surprise But if you find something, you'll make it enough To stop me from calling your bluff Waltzing after my seersucker prince My herringbone tiptoes 'round him for an instant first I lead him, then let him steal the lead Now he's stolen my heart from me When you're born in the gutter, you'll always end up in the port Don't let it worry you all too much dear I'd never lump you in with that sort If we can stop blaming the fault in our stars Then maybe someday we'll be richer than czars Keep up your chin dear, sing this with me la di dee dah di dee dee

Oh, Vincent 02:58
Oh Vincent Your matriarchs didn't have luck at home Your mother and hers raised their kids alone They sent their shiftless men packing off No wonder you wanted better odds Oh Vincent You made all the girls at school swoon and sigh The redhead they all wanted to be like And to be near Oh Vincent you had it all, what else could you want Burning your candle at both ends, you did it all All the boys and the girls 'round your little finger with Beauty and talent and wit and luck at first Beautiful, this day Beautiful, this day Beautiful, this day No matter Oh Vincent You traveled the world with your lovers Eugen at home writing letters, begging You to return to Steepletop Wanting you near, but you just couldn't stop Oh Vincent When you lost your world that night, didn't it sting Couldn't find solace in anything Your head full of what was gone up in flames Even the morphine could only ease the pain Oh Vincent you had it all, what else could you want Burning your candle at both ends, you did it all All the boys and the girls 'round your little finger with Beauty and talent and wit and luck at first Beautiful, this day Beautiful, this day Beautiful, this day No matter who has died

Paper Towns 02:44
I was a dreamer and you were a dream You were a schemer and we were a team You showed me the way to a dozen places new Hidden from sight 'til I followed you Where I could build you a castle of stone and sand No wishes or dreams, just these two hands Let's go, we should have hit the road yesterday Roll out the map, show me the way And take me to a paper town We'll take hands and tear each building down see what's hidden behind the lie See what's real, see what's inside I'll let you take the mask from off my face You'll just see a star as it falls from grace Only if you promise to let me in And never ever to never never ever let me down again I want something real, something I can touch I've spent my whole life wanting it this much Maybe I'm fool to still believe That you're the hero I thought I'd need To take me to a paper town You and me, we're gonna burn it down We're gonna set this whole town aglow Should have set a match to this place long ago Even if you never return my call You'll always be the one who set me free Please take my weight, don't let me fall And take me to a paper town We'll take hands and tear each building down see what's hidden behind the lie See what's real, see what's inside Take me to a paper town You and me, we're gonna burn it down We're gonna set this whole town aglow Should have set a match to this place long ago
