between us all

between us allĀ between us all

smoke will fill the air
we all know it’s inevitable
you take it with you everywhere
until you become invisible
until you wish you were invisible
until you become invisible
you take it with you everywhere
we all know it’s inevitable
smoke will fill the air
between us all

tied up in knots

tiedupinknots

I can debate
with level-headed rationality
I can debate
round after round
with friends and acquaintances

but when it comes to you
I’m all tied up in knots

I can debate
with level-headed rationality
with everyone but you
I can talk about controversial issues
with strangers

but when it comes to you

I’m all tied up in knots

the happy way in which boredom
seems to make time stop

this song is not called pooey stick

thissong

 

on the way to the subway station
I was hit by a revelation
I was gonna make a song called ~~~~~
then I thought
maybe not
maybe not call this song ~~~~~~~~
I could name this song something silly

like pooey stick
or gumdrop symphony
but that would be dumb

so I’m gonna call this song
something different like ~~~~~

I know it’s a long title,
but I’m way past caring
so this song is called..
and wait for it
here it comes
it goes
it’s title is
~~~~~~~~

Naengi!

Naengi

this is my dog
one of them
there are two
this one’s name is Naengi
(Naengi!)
this song is for her

sit
turn around
lay down
up
stay
good girl!

this is a song for Naengi
she’s the daughter of our other dog,
Yachae
but that’s another song

Naengi is very fast
and greets us very vivaciously
when we enter the apartment

good dog!

damn you death cab

 

when I was 14 I wrote a song

damnyou

and it had these chords
it was sad and melancholy
and cheesy but I liked it a lot
I was proud of it
I was 14

 

and now I’m 43
I heard these chords in a song
by Death Cab For Cutie
I was pissed off
I shook my fist in the air
Damn you, Death Cab For Cutie
Damn you, Death Cab For Cutie

 

I realize I’m not the first person

to think of these chords
I just can’t remember hearing them
before I heard Death Cab For Cutie do it
I shake my fist in the air
Damn you, Death Cab For Cutie

 

I love your music
but what the hell are you doing
with a name like Death Cab For Cutie?
Ben Hibbard, I love ya
but Death Cab For Cutie
sucks for a name
and I’m not just saying that
cos you took my chords
I’m just sayin’ it.

midnight coffee

a dozen places on that map
a three day weekend, then a napmidnight coffee

I can smell the midnight coffee now

the dusty bedside table book
that class in school I never took
the earth revolves
the year dissolves
and here we are again

I’ll keep my eyes open
every day
I don’t want to say
that I missed anything

a dozen places on that map
a three day weekend, then a nap
I can smell the midnight coffee now

I did

i did

who said your eyes are like diamonds, baby?
I did
(I said)
who said your eyes are like diamonds, baby?
I did

(my favorite part)

who said your lips are like cherries, baby?
I did
who said your mouth is an ocean, baby?
and I wanna swim in it
(do the backstroke)

who said your teeth were like pearls, baby?
and I wanna shine in ’em

who said your hair was like a raven, baby?
and I wanna fly in it
who said your voice was like a symphony, baby?
I did
I did
