Song a Day for a Week (May 5 - 12)

sad girl thinks it’s ok

That’s ok - Eskimeaux
frankie is facedown in our bed
you are downstairs
and all i want is to hear you say
“we’re not the same
but that’s ok”
you came home today
and you said
that you were scared
you’re not the same
it’s ok
because i want you
and you want me too
that’s all we have to do
that’s all we have to do

frankie cosmos last song of the week

POV OF TOOTHBRUSH

:

i wonder why

the guy who’s always standing next to her mouth

is putting me in his now

he put me into his mouth

and now frankie yells

and puts me in a dark pink case

in the cabinet far away from everyone else

i only see the light twice a day now

and then i go straight into her mouth

and back into the cabinet

i wonder why

the guy who’s always standing next to her mouth

put me into his mouth

sad girl wishes to sing a duet

Bulldog (for Oliver to sing with me) - Eskimeaux
has this month been tough?
is one month long enough
for you to feel free
and like the kind of dude who would be with me?
is it hard losing
all your baby teeth
and being the only dream
that comes to me?
do you think
about what that means?
dependability
to trust in me
truly
only
and
do you possess the courage?
a bulldog in a white wedding dress

(a coupla lyrics stolen from Blue Breath by Bellows)

maybe my favorite song i’ve ever written

SCRAMBLED EGGS
I was young
there was so much left to see
had only laid my eyes
on the american northeast

and i was lonely
i was only 17
but you taught me
how to make scrambled eggs

I believe
I believe in scrambled eggs
I believe
I believe in scrambled eggs

it was hard
i cried all night in my rooms dark
i felt the hands of independence
rip my form apart

no one taught me
how to stand up on two legs
i taught myself
how to make scrambled eggs

I believe
I believe in scrambled eggs
I believe
I believe in scrambled eggs
I believe
I believe in scrambled eggs
I believe
I believe in scrambled eggs

frankie cosmos day 6:

now that i know that every time i get sad you just hate me

you can go to sleep and sleep it off peacefully

i’ll be here all night feeling totally fucked

wondering what tomorrow will be like and staying up

i guess i just make myself the victim like you said

that’s why when you treat me shitty YOU get mad

it all makes sense now, thanks so much

goodbye forever what the fuck

May 11

it’s mothers day i love you mom i made some scrambled eggs
i went outside and watched the birds like i know you did today
i’m sorry i can’t be there to eat some lobster and watch a movie later
i’m sorry i can’t be there to hang out in the living room with paul newman
it’s mothers day i love you mom
it’s mothers day but i love you everday

from japanese breakfast

there’s not much to show
is there?
when you see it from far away
you don’t have to make me proud
i just want you to be happy
happy? happy. happy?

sad girl excited on the way but angry upon arrival

On The Way (ft. David Maine)/When I Got There - Eskimeaux
Driving on the saw mill
We’re gonna play a show
Gonna play some Frankie
Cooosmooooos
Gonna have some fun tonight
Gonna kiss all the boys/girls
Gonna have some fun tonight
Gonna kiss all the boys
When all I do is act a cushion to
The one to whom you
Say “i love you” to
You think I’m crazy?
Yeah well fuck you too
It is not like you
Are the one I look to
For everything I do

day 6 ooookkkkay
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
white light doorway here i am in the flesh again
does this make you want to see me here again
i’ll shout i’ll scream i’ll walk back but you’ll bring me in
white light doorway please spare me please forgive my sins
golden flowers metal diamonds on the wall
i’ve not been there i’ve not been here
please come quick i’ve stuck my head in the banister again
i slid and pulled and chafed my neck i’m freaking out
please come quick i stuck my head in the banister again
but i just wanted to know what it would feel like
with one part of my body alive
