Track Name: Love Your Family
(capo 7th fret)
C-Am
(humming)
C F
How old do you have to get
before you're honest with your parents
and can tell them about the time Kate
broke your heart without getting embarrassed?
How old do you have to turn before you see you're no longer a teenager,
take your bullshit, burn it up, and leave those grudges forever?
C-Am
(humming)
C F
How old do you have to grow
before you see your mom's an old lady
who's probably all alone
and definitely misses her baby?
How old do you have to get
before both your parents die
and you're left saying
I wish, I wish, I wish, I...?
C-Am
(humming)
C F
How old do you have to get before you see yourself in your family
and start to love them for it
as your closest connection out of all humanity?
How long has to pass by
before you tell your dad and mom
"I'm sorry. I love you. Thanks for the things you did right.
You're forgiven for what you did wrong."
C-Am
(humming)

Track Name: Love of My Life
(power chords: G-C-Em [up an octave]-B)

(Love of my life, I'll never get over you)

When I get lonely, I call up my ex-girlfriend and say "I need to kiss someone named Kate Ferencz.
It matters who.
I know by now it needs to be you."

In the two things that I love,
there is power from your blood.
You're the prettiest girl in the world,
but you only date mice and worms.

I never wrote you a love song,
and I always stuck around for too long.

Can't make you love me,
and I'm sorry, so sorry
you'll never come back to me
Track Name: Duet
(C-F-Em
Dm-G-C)

Man: Oooh
Woman: La la la

Man: Youre not mine
Woman: I'm not yours
Man: That is fine
Woman: we're divorced
Man: I am now
Woman: Single and free
Man: Finally allowed
Woman: to be me

Man: I go out
Woman: every night
Man: I make out
Woman: in moonlight
Man: Decorate
Woman: how I want
Man: It looks great
Woman: It doesn't

Man: More complaints?
Woman: Oh shut up!
Man: Fuck you taint!
Woman: Just grow up!

Man: Kick your ass

Track Name: I Love You So Much (with Amanda Palmer)
C-G (2)
F-A

Asus (up an octave)
Em
D
E-D-C
I can't draw
I can't paint
I can't write
I'll never be a saint

But I can sing
and I can say
I love you so much (3)

I can't read
your favorite philosophies
I can't sculpt
something beautiful for you to see

(chorus)
Track Name: Country Suicide
(this song is in drop-d. pick 4th, 3rd and 2nd strings for verse)
(D-G/B-Asus)
Life sure had its moments, but now it's time to move on
and don't think of it as dying, think of it as graduation,
cuz after a certain age, you hope for a living wage, that's all,
and living without passion like I am's hardly living at all.

open 4th string
Low string: 5-7-12-10
So what's the difference if I go now or in 2020,
when I look back at the last 7 years and don't see any reason to stay here?
(Low string: 3-0)

(D-G/B-Asus)
But before I go I'm gonna do some things,
and I don't mean like catching up on my reading,
cuz when you know you're about to die you can get away with anything.
There's so much you can do when you're not worried about losing,
like insult people a lot more or take things from the corner store,
or pee in my hallway, mostly being a jerk is what I have planned for my last days.
So maybe you won't mind as much when I go cuz I'll be such
a bastard that you won't miss me and then my plan will have worked perfectly.

(open 4th string
Low string: 5-7-12-10)
Cuz what's the difference
if I go
now or in 2020?
Or maybe
3010
cuz who knows what the world will be like then
(open 4th string
Low string: 0-2-7-5)
I think I know
it'll be the same
but a little worse just like every day
and no
I don't think
I'm gonna miss anything but drinking.
(4th string:12-11-9-12-11-9-7-5-4-7-5-4-2

(open 4th string
