Track Name: Peach
I had a boyfriend and when we kissed
it was sweet, like eating a peach
I met another, I couldn’t eat couldn’t sleep,
why did Cupid shoot me?
Dreamt of a new lover, we’d flirt until I relent,
I’m teaching him French
Cried to my mother that I felt sick from my sins
and I have to repent

But all I can think about is
that boy’s mouth
Yes, all I can think about is
that boy’s mouth

I had a boyfriend and when we kissed
it was sweet, like eating a peach
I met another, I couldn’t eat couldn’t sleep,
why did Cupid shoot me?
Dear John, I’m sorry, it wasn’t part of my plan,
I hope you can understand
I hope you’re happy, you with your new girlfriend,
me with my new man

All I can think about is
that boy’s mouth
Yeah i can think about is
that boy’s mouth

I saw his handsome face,
I never should’ve looked in his eyes
His leg once brushed my leg,
I let him rest his gaze on my thighs

All I can think about is
that boy’s mouth
Yeah all i can think about is
that boy’s mouth
Track Name: Grrrls Like Us
There are plenty of fish in the sea
But girls like us don’t grow on trees

We sip peach champagne til we ain’t that shy
u’ve got a $20 in yr pocket and mischief in yr eyes :)
Cheap champagne til we ain’t that shy
I’ve got a clover in my locket and cherries in my Sprite

There are plenty of fish in the sea
But girls like us don’t grow on trees

I ain’t a prophet but we gotta keep our eyes on the prize
My magic 8 ball said that things are gonna turn out alright
The future’s shining like a jar of fucking fireflies
Don’t waste another minute thinking bout that girl with your guy

There are plenty of fish in the sea
But girls like us don’t grow on trees
Track Name: Adonis
Apollo I think, or Adonis
You make me nervous oh boy I’ll be honest`
Cause your slang’s got the rhythm of a sonnet
and the stars they are swimming past like comets

Adonis I think or Apollo
knows a path that I think I might follow
has a plan that is sweet but its hollow
he’s a dear but he’s gone by tomorrow

Just as Paris chose Aphrodite
I think this may end very very poorly
but come here babe, you know I think you're charming
and our 20s aren't for playing safe

Apollo I think, or Adonis
You make me nervous oh boy I’ll be honest`
Cause your slang’s got the rhythm of a sonnet
and the stars they are swimming past like comets
Track Name: A Reverie
Dancing like a little flower, I die
and I'm tryna fly south for the summer, I try

Passing notes, secret codes
Father Son and Holy Ghost
Passing notes, secret codes
Father Son and Holy Ghost

Dancing like the stars on your birthday, I shine
get close and then strive to be perfect, you know why

Passing notes, secret codes
Father Son and Holy Ghost
Passing notes, secret codes
Father Son and Holy Ghost
Track Name: HHS 2
You wanted to go on a walk outside
but I was wearing high heeled shoes
So I left them behind.
You made me smile when you kissed my hand lightly,
like a prince or a king.
We played pretend all day that day.

I'm never coming home,
I really lost my way.
I'm never coming home,
I really lost my way.

They say you are a bad, bad seed
But you're not bad for me
I blush and call your name
'Cause you know that I can't refuse
Honey, it's the truth
I love the seedy things you say

I'm never coming home,
I really lost my way.
I'm never coming home,
I really lost my way.
Track Name: July
Rubbing sunscreen on my shoulders
in May I'm like a rabbit, by August I am bolder
Plucking petals off of blossoms
in May I made a promise, by August I'd forgotten

Stagnant air making me restless,
completely rosy-cheeked and breathless

There are apple pies cooling in the window
Do simple sights make your heart-rate fly?
Like my bare thighs in July?
Where did your gf go?
Caught between the devil & the deep blue sea

When you found me a 4 leaf clover
your hair was glowing golden and yr skin was bronze
just like I imagine Paris
when he first met Helen, so how can this be wrong??


Stagnant air making me restless,
completely rosy-cheeked and breathless

There are apple pies cooling in the window
Do simple sights make your heart-rate fly?
Like my bare thighs in July?
Where did your gf go?
Caught between the devil & the deep blue sea
