He left a key hidden by the backdoor but
I never showed up. There was something
sleazy about it that made me wanna rob
the place & run. & I’ve been ignoring the calls, I’ve
been riding my bike with handlebars
through empty street in the dark, & I think
I’m getting pretty good
Maybe I’ll leave the house tonight, maybe I’ll
even watch the bands & maybe I’ll cry.
Maybe I’ll tell everyone I cried while you
sleep next to your wife, for the rest of
your life while I’m riding in the dark
on my bike with no handlebars, yeah.
And I heard it from a friend that he talks
to the primary school kids through the fence.
Yeah, you should’a seen his book collection,
it was ‘How to Socialise & How to Make Friends’,
yeah I guess we’ve all got our problems and areas to improve. & I know
one of mine is to go a night without sympathising with you
I can see myself living without you
& being fine, for the rest of my life, it’s
just me on my bike & I’ll wave to you as I ride by.

This album is so painfully beautiful. Julien's voice is delicately strained and her words paint vignettes that range from delicate somber memories to muted pain. The guitar tones and thin texture of the layering leave this album feeling very intimate and raw. Among the best things I've heard this past year. Jake Gussman
