about

Once upon a time, I went on vacation and was excited to resuscitate the Gladdest of Judies. I seriously haven't done this since 2012.

Track Name: Lua by Bright Eyes
I know that it is freezing but I think we have to walk
I keep waving at the taxis; they keep turning their lights off
But Julie knows a party at some actor's west side loft
Supplies are endless in the evening; by the morning they'll be gone.

When everything is lonely I can be my own best friend
I get a coffee and the paper; have my own conversations
With the sidewalk and the pigeons and my window reflection
The mask I polish in the evening, by the morning looks like shit.

And I know you have a heavy heart; I can feel it when we kiss
So many men stronger than me have thrown their backs out trying to lift it
But me I'm not a gamble you can count on me to split
The love I sell you in the evening, by the morning won't exist.

You're looking skinny like a model with your eyes all painted black
You just keep going to the bathroom always say you'll be right back
Well it takes one to know one, kid, I think you've got it bad
But what's so easy in the evening, by the morning is such a drag.

I've got a flask inside my pocket we can share it on the train
If you promise to stay conscious I will try and do the same
We might die from medication, but we sure killed all the pain
But what was normal in the evening, by the morning seems insane.

And I'm not sure what the trouble was that started all of this
The reasons all have run away but the feeling never did
It's not something I would recommend, but it is one way to live
Cause what is simple in the moonlight, by the morning never is
What's so simple in the moonlight, now is so complicated
What's so simple in the moonlight, so simple in the moonlight
Track Name: I Know by Fiona Apple
So be it, I'm your crowbar
If that's what I am so far
Until you get out of this mess
And I will pretend
That I don't know of your sins
Until you are ready to confess
But all the time, all the time
I'll know, I'll know

And you can use my skin
To bury your secrets in
And I will settle you down
And at my own suggestion
I will ask no questions
While I do my thing in the background
But all the time all the time
I'll know I'll know

Baby: I can't help you out,
While she's still around
For the time being,
I'm being patient
And amidst this bitterness
If you'll just consider this
Even if it don't make sense
All the time, give it time

And when the crowd becomes your burden
And you've early closed your curtains,
I'll wait by the backstage door
While you try to find
The lines to speak your mind
And pry it open, hoping for a encore
And if it gets too late, for me to wait
For you to find you love me, and tell me so
It's okay, don't need to say it
Track Name: First Day of My Life by Bright Eyes
This is the first day of my life
Swear I was born right in the doorway
I went out in the rain suddenly everything changed
They're spreading blankets on the beach

Yours is the first face that I saw
I think I was blind before I met you
Now I don't know where I am
I don't know where I've been
But I know where I want to go

And so I thought I'd let you know
That these things take forever
I especially am slow
But I realize that I need you
And I wondered if I could come home

Remember the time you drove all night
Just to meet me in the morning
And I thought it was strange you said everything changed
You felt as if you'd just woke up
And you said "this is the first day of my life
I'm glad I didn't die before I met you
But now I don't care I could go anywhere with you
And I'd probably be happy"

So if you want to be with me
With these things there's no telling
We just have to wait and see
But I'd rather be working for a paycheck
Than waiting to win the lottery
Besides maybe this time is different
I mean I really think you like me
Track Name: I Wish I Was the Moon by Neko Case
Chimney falls and lovers blaze
Thought that I was young
Now I've freezing hands and bloodless veins
As numb as I've become

I'm so tired
I wish I was the moon tonight

Last night I dreamt I had forgotten my name
'Cause I had sold my soul but awoke just the same
I'm so lonely
I wish I was the moon tonight

God blessed me, I'm a free man
With no place free to go
I'm paralyzed and collared-tight
No pills for what I fear

This is crazy
I wish I was the moon tonight

Chimney falls and lovers blaze
Thought that I was young
Now I've freezing hands & bloodless veins
As numb as I've become

I'm so tired,
I wish I was the moon tonight

How will you know if you found me at last
'Cause I'll be the one
With my heart in my lap

I'm so tired,
I wish I was the moon tonight
Track Name: On the Loose - Traditional
Have you ever seen the sunset turn the sky completely red
Have you slept beneath the moon and stars, a pine bough for your head
Do you sit and talk with friends, though a word is never said
Then you’re just like me and you’ve been on the loose

On the loose to climb a mountain
On the loose where I am free
On the loose to live my life the way
I think my life should be
For I only have a moment, and the whole world yet to see
I’ll be looking for tomorrow on the loose

There’s a train that I’ve been hiking, just to see where it may go
Many places yet to visit, many people yet to know
So in following my dreams, I will live and I will grow
On the trail that’s waiting out there on the loose

On the loose to climb a mountain
On the loose where I am free
On the loose to live my life the way
I think my life should be
For I only have a moment, and the whole world yet to see
I’ll be looking for tomorrow on the loose

So in search of love and laughter, I’ll be traveling through this land
Never sure of where I’m going, for I haven’t any plan
So in time when you are ready, join me, please, dear take my hand
And together we’ll find life out on the loose

On the loose to climb a mountain
On the loose where I am free
On the loose to live my life the way
I think my life should be
For I only have a moment, and the whole world yet to see
I’ll be looking for tomorrow on the loose
