lyrics

there's a light, there's a light, there's a light
there's a pill that the internet raves about
there's a light that follows the night
a night I should've spent sleeping

there were days where I carried a corpse around town
looping eyelid scenarios
might owe everything I know to faux medicine and TV shows

I see you creeping around like the sun
in a Portland winter--once you notice, it's gone
I need you
Can't get enough of that almost joy

like an almost hole-in-one
like an almost holy one
like it's almost said and done
'fore you brace for another one

there's a light, there's a light, there's a light
there's a stale green signal ahead of me
might owe everything I know to scheduled events
and a twitching elbow

I see you creeping around like the sun
in a Portland winter--once you notice, it's gone
I need you
Can't get enough of that almost joy

like an almost hole-in-one
like an almost holy one
like it's almost said and done
'fore you brace for another one

like an almost loaded gun
in a standoff with no one
but a shadow in the sun
let's just brace for another one

I feel you like a salmon to spawn
move in for a kiss--overcome with a yawn
I need you
can't get enough of that almost joy

I need you like a seed in the soil
a leaflet don't make it worth all the toil
when the rabbits come
I'll be humming that almost joy
