I'm tired/of Sitting Here Every Night (chorus)
Spending Money/Waiting for You to Appear
I'm Tired/Of Hanging around the Shoe Store Honey
When you don't even work there anymore
I'm Tired/Of Waiting Around
For you to come save me
For you to come save me

I threw your Crystal Gale records off the fire escape
I packed your things/and I punched a hole in the wall
I kept your superchunk tshirt/cause I just couldn't bear to throw it out
and then I locked myself out/and had to sleep with your stuff in the hall


When you left my friends told me Good Riddance
But every dream i've had since then You're In it
I kicked you out of my house/but I can't kick you out of my mind
and I'm beginning to think that I'm the one I left behind

Nice fun feel. This is just the nice warm boost I need to start my day!

I like the new wavy like guitars.

The vocals are nice. It's not as easy for me to follow lyrics. Though I caught a lot, it would be nice if you posted them. Just me.

"when you don't even work there anymore". Great line. More rocking oyt than what I heard from you so far, but As usual, lots of cool work on the backgrounds vocals.

this is one of my fave songs I've heard on MJ in awhile. love the overall sound and the vox are all great. gotta love the superchunk reference too. damn this is catchy, if you had put this out as a single it would be sitting in my collection right now. nice guitar break at the midway point too.

I'm just gonna wade thru your entire catalog
Love your lyrics, man!

Great, post-punk/rock/pop/grunge.....I give up. It's none of that. It's just original and as catchy as the bubonic plague!

I feel like I've discovered a star! I even like that one second of electrical crackle at the end!

In high school I waited every night for a girl friend to get off work at the bakery. I really identify with this one. I dig the twisted instrumental break. Strangle that guitar!
