Opening Lyrics:

I, I, when I was younger
I, I, should have known better
And I can’t feel no remorse
And you don’t feel nothing back
I, I, got a new girlfriend
She feels like he’s on top
And I don’t feel no remorse
And you can’t see past my blinders
Oh, Ophelia
You’ve been on my mind girl since the flood
Oh, Ophelia
Heaven help a fool who falls in love
I, I, got a little paycheck
You got big plans and you gotta move
And I don’t feel nothing at all
And you can’t feel nothing small

Stubborn Love

Length: 4:39

Release: 2013

Opening Lyrics:

She’ll lie and steal and cheat
And beg you from her knees
Make you think she means it this time
She’ll tear a hole in you, the one you can’t repair
But I still love her, I don’t really care
When we were young
Oh-oh, we did enough
When it got cold
Ooh-ooh, we bundled up
I can’t be told
Ah-ah it can’t be done
It’s better to feel pain, than nothing at all
The opposite of love’s indifference
So pay attention now
I’m standing on your porch screaming out
And I won’t leave until you come downstairs

Sleep On The Floor

Length: 3:31

Release: 2016

Opening Lyrics:

Pack yourself a toothbrush, dear
Pack yourself a favorite blouse
Take a withdrawal slip
Take all of your savings out
‘Cause if we don’t leave this town
We might never make it out
I was not born to drown
Baby, come on
Forget what Father Brennan said
We were not born in sin
Leave a note on your bed
Let your mother know you’re safe
And by the time she wakes
We’ll have driven through the state
We’ll have driven through the night
Baby, come on
If the sun don’t shine on me today
And if the subways flood and bridges break
Will you lay yourself down and dig your grave
Or will you rail against the dying day?


Length: 3:21

Release: 2016

Opening Lyrics:

I was Cleopatra, I was young and an actress
When you knelt by my mattress, and asked for my hand
But I was sad you asked it, as I laid in a black dress
With my father in a casket, I had no plans, yeah
And I left the footprints, the mud stain on the carpet
And it hardened like my heart did when you left town
But I must admit it, that I would marry you in an instant
Damn your wife, I’d be your mistress just to have you around
But I was late for this, late for that, late for the love of my life
And when I die alone, when I die alone, die I’ll be on time, ah, yeah
