Music and lyrics written by Charlie Wolf (BMI).
Recorded in Oakland, LA, and New York.

lyrics

LYRICS:
picture frames with plastic smiles, picket fences, porcelain tiles, the people who we want to be (the people who came in it at the store). but i could never be that man--i don’t know anyone who can--and you can say it’s fine but darling i know that you always wanted more. arrows point to metal edges. replace ourselves with perfect moments. torn off tops of moving boxes.. i would go back if you asked me.

i hear you laughing on the wire. i see your skin so pixelated. the world is ending anyway, so go on, leave me casually destroyed. but i am not the man i was--for example, now i have a beard. now you are an unread text, and i am still your torn up little toy. cliched thoughts & empty phrases, forged emotions, borrowed phases. replace our past with clean blank pages… i would forget if you let me.

your red dress blends into the brick wall behind you. i tried amends but all it did was remind me of plasticine walls crumbling down around our orbits… floodgates and a summer that i’m never gonna shake. all those days in a century before with flowers in your hair and the silence when it gets to me is everything you meant to me. i’ve been trying to repent for all the stupid things i said and all those things i never sent if you let me. picture frames with checkered shirts, perfect teeth and zero hurt, the people who we never were (the people who came in it at the store).

about

The Small Calamities

A whirlwind of punk rock angst, power pop hooks & Americana jangle, The Small Calamities blend a wry humor, Springsteenesque imagery, and naked earnestness to create what reviewers have called “imagery-laden anecdotes" & "poison-tipped confessionals". Smash Mouth follows them on twitter. ... more
