chrisanthemum I tried reading the lyrics before I listened to the song, and got lost in the meaning until I listened to it. The rhythm, the vocals, and the garage-band sound go perfectly together for a song like this. The audio is a bit messed up in some parts, but that doesn't affect how good it actually sounds. The best thing about it is that it has a meaning and actual feeling in it. I hope your music stays that way

about

sometimes i have to figure out what i’m talking about later on in the process. like i didn’t know what i meant by “i get it about mothers now” when i thought of the line but i was walking to this blackberry bush by my house one morning and i realized that what i meant was i don’t think i ever understood what it was like worrying for someone the way mothers do. and my mom does a lot of worrying about me so i’m glad i can comprehend 1% of how she feels when i am in pain.

you never let me see you in that way, in pain, i mean, but i imagine it and it hurts more than i thought it would.

when i really stopped eating this time i started having dreams that my teeth were falling out which is a sign of stress but also it apparently means i no longer feel beautiful. parts of me agree with that diagnosis and parts of me will never be able to grow roses in my garden when i am old.

lyrics

there’s someone parked on morrison
who dropped me at the wrong address
i was thinking about
how you told me you couldn't stop smelling my shirt
and i forgot to tell my driver

(that was my turn!)

I get it about mothers now
I am strung out in the living room
Waiting for the house to empty out
I get it about mothers now

Have you been an only child?
Do you have to be so thoughtful?

i can’t keep down my sentences
they come up fast on my comforter, teeth dreams, thick yellow milk
i’m repelled by all the surrogates i’ve chosen
to get me through a month without
a gold star

(a dozen red red roses!)

I get it about mothers now
I am strung out in the living room
Waiting for the house to empty out
I get it about mothers now

you were the only one who saw me
i was tangled up in pavement, live wire, live wire in your eyes
now every single time i cross that road
i don’t think “this is where
i could have died”

(this is where i loved you most)

===

I get it about mothers now
I am strung out in the living room
Waiting for the house to empty out
I get it about mothers now

i get it about mothers now
i am strung out in the waiting room
just tear both of the bandages off
i get it about mothers now

i get it about mothers now
i was something when i met you
I’ll be something again, somehow
i get it about mothers now
