Track Name: Your New Old Apartment
i only saw you a couple times last year. once at a wedding and once at a funeral. i wore the same clothes to both and i was worried you would notice cause yours were impeccable. you filled me in on potential five-year plans. you’re thinking of jobs and homes and children. slowly rotating a silver wedding band between your thumb and middle finger. and i wondered “oh my god, did i get lost? am i young enough to just move on?” i saw a classmate i hadn’t seen in years. he was well-dressed and i fucked up our handshake. “how’s making music? i haven’t listened yet, but somebody said you’re doing great.” and it felt like a dream at double-speed on a Greyhound back from Pittsburgh. comparing something like that to where others are at? what a backwards way to calculate self-worth. my mother’s out there climbing mountains. my father’s finished with his work. my sister’s moving to a brand new city. my brother’s looking out for her . but anyway, thanks for having me over to your new old apartment. i’m doing well, my flight was fine. i see you listened to the record that i sent you. i wish i saw you all the time, but this is fine. i hope i see you a little more this year. i want a good look at the life that you’re building.
