Track Name: Dodos
Nothing is easy
Nothing is hard
Nothing is everything
Nothing has fallen too far

The things we imagine are real and then fake and then real
Look each other over and see how we feel

I'll look in your eyes
And then you will look back into mine
And then we'll walk away
We'll save anything that we had yesterday
for another week
another year
another day

It takes a minute for me to remember
It takes a second for me to forget
It takes a moment to whisper together
To fulfill and create a lifetime of regret

Nothing is easy
Nothing is hard
Nothing is battle-torn
Nothing is scarred
Nothing is there
Nothing is wrong
Nothing takes enough time
Everything takes way too long
Track Name: Optimist
And I feel so optimistically
When you're lying there next to me
And if our feelings did match
I'd probably take a step backwards and I'd overreact
And think
What a relief

Believe me
You won't believe me

And you feel so pessimistically
When you're lying there next to me
And if our feelings did match
You'd probably look away and hardly even react
And think
What a relief

Believe me
You gotta believe me
Track Name: Letters
When we met she was just a letter.
She didn't mean much more to me.
Talking in the sun
outside the airport
on the tenth degree.
What did it mean?

Won't you write me a letter?
Write a few letters in a row.
You don't have to let me read a single word that you wrote.

When we met she was just a letter
introduced from across the room.
My quick quips
and my pessimistic attitude
turned her off
and came across rude.

Won't you write me a letter?
Write a few letters in a row.
You don't have to let me read a single word that you wrote.

They were just a couple of letters
alphabetically aligned.
I guess it was worth it.
They served their purposes at the time.
To free up my mind.

Won't you write me a letter?
Write a few letters in a row.
You don't have to let me read a single word that you wrote.
