and i hate the awkward silences and forced interjections like, "so how are you feeling?", "is this weather appealing?", or "do i look appealing to you?". and we'll talk about how sad we both got and how we want out, but we'll never try to get out. and it's cold in your house. we drove in silence as 84 dragged along with your labored breaths and me singing/humming along to some snowing song. you can hate me if i'm wrong, but i swore that novels once graced our tongues. it's hard when you're still in love but something feels missing. it's like rain on your birthday or when someone asks if you're okay and you're just too tried to explain that you never feel okay. there's a problem in your brain that you just can't locate but you still know you're not the same. and all the lights have gone out.
boston, ma 02:56
hey, i'm wide awake and i can't recall the last time i saw your face. so hey, i'm in your driveway. i've been cruising for a bruising and my heart is aching for you. but every day gets so much worse and i've been dying since my birth. but i've been pulling through, flooding my brain with thoughts of you. you're keeping my feet anchored to the earth. so hey, i'll drive out to boston and i'll bet that shit's gonna cost me an arm and a leg. but hey, i made a mixtape. it's full of sappy songs and i'll be singing them all night long until i get to you. with every mile i'll feel a smile grow bigger on my face. i'll get to your dorm and i'll fall into your arms and my pain will be erased. so hey, i think i'm staying. waking up on your floor just to hear you snore has never sounded so exciting. so hey, show me the city. i wanna see it all with you. and i wish that i could stay until you graduate but in under 6 hours i'll be driving back home, awaiting two weekends from now. so hey, let's make this worth it. i swear, we'll make this work.


these are two acoustic songs that exist in a strange phase (summer 2016) where no momentum was sort of a concept but not really a band or anything.
they were likely recorded on kelly's iphone se, but she has broken so many phones it's honestly hard to say.


"shit blizzard" originally appeared on the original cassette pressing of 'i want to die on the beach'.

"boston, ma" appears on the new loveseat tapes cassette pressing of 'i want to die on the beach'.
