David P Craig Katy's voice is easy and interesting to listen too and your lyrics are distinctive, still need to loop through the album a few more times before I choose a favorite song but 'Chemicals' is definitely a contender. Favorite track: Chemicals.

Track Name: The Weekends
Sunday, it's 3:30 babe
I stare at the ceiling while you talk at me
on Fridays, we're acting in love
so can we pretend that I'm inside your head?

so what do you want from this?

Friday, you come back again
what's bringing you back? I'm not inside your head
"it's just that I'm here to feel loved"
the acting is dumb, I do it anyway

I make you uncomfortable
what do I want from this?

oh, do I need fake love to function?
oh, do you need my mouth to sleep well?
the weekends, the weekends
what do we want from this?
the weekends, the weekends
do you need my mouth to sleep well?

next weekend, next weekend
I'll stare at the ceiling while you talk at me
you must think you're interesting babe
you'll never admit that she's got your head
and will never take you back
we continue on like this

oh I hope the summer saves you
oh I hope I don't hear from you
the weekends, the weekends
they'll haunt me either way
the weekends, the weekends
do you need my mouth to sleep well?

I thought this would all make me proud
but I sit on my bed, my head'll touch my hands
on Sunday, with too much to do
too busy to function or to talk to you, so

I'd like to move on from this
Track Name: I Don't Stay Out Late
You know I don’t stay out late
But you’re here, so I might stay forever
No, I’m fine with this

You know I don’t do that shit
But you say I need to forget
I watch you take a hit

I know I’m super lame, or whatever
‘do you wanna be here?’ no, but I, now
I never tell the truth, but you know I think about it
I wish I were you, everyone here seems to know you

red lips and nowhere to go
white wine and nowhere to stay
red lips and nowhere to go
white wine and nowhere to stay

I never tell the truth, but you know I think about it
I wanna use my youth, cause I know I’ll grow out of it
You’re cool and that’s the truth, will you stick around and teach me
To get slammed and maybe seen, everyone here seems to love you

red lips and nowhere to go
white wine and nowhere to stay
red lips and nowhere to go
trash wine and nowhere to stay

you know sometimes I wish I could go back to high school, I dunno
I figure I was happier then, at least I knew what I was about
cause now I'm hanging out with vegans who still smoke cigarettes
and I'm not quite sure what I'm trying to achieve

I never wanted to give up on a Saturday
but baby I wanted you, keep my weekends busy anyway
You’re cool and that’s truth, but I never even knew you
Just a type to get fucking lit, oh I didn’t need to know you

red lips and nowhere to go
red eyes and nowhere to stay
red lips and nowhere to go
red eyes and nowhere to stay

Have I earned your love yet?
It’s all for paper anyway
to write home away

So go ahead I’ll take a drink
it’s rum and coke and I’m lost
in universities
Track Name: Haunting You
I swear I’ll never change
but I will always keep up with you
never make the second date
always too preoccupied with youth, nothing else to do
but you, let me talk to you

I keep you up to date
hoping I’ll hear back from you
but you look away
but you look away or right through, I’m a ghost to you
haunting you, let me talk to you

babe, our beauty’s gonna fade
babe, it’ll matter to me if you stay
lay me down next to you, though I’ll
never see you after university

I’ll watch you with her
make me a victim of your youth
it’s awful, no it’s fine
I know I thought too much of you, nothing else to do
idealizing you, let me talk to you

but I’m typical at best
climbing out of bed and getting dressed
every day I’m nothing new
waiting for the next time I’ll see you, but I’ll keep it cool
following the rules, I’ll never talk to you

babe, our beauty’s gonna fade
babe, it’ll matter to me if you stay
lay me down next to you, though I’ll
never see you after university

I went too far again
I thought too far ahead
I went too far again
I thought too far ahead

babe, our beauty’s gonna fade
babe, it’ll matter to me if you stay
lay me down next to you, though I’ll
never see you after university
Track Name: Parking Lot
we shared the kava in the dimming light
my lips went numb
our lips were numb
you said you loved it while I choked and stuttered
can we go home?
this tastes like bark and death

oh I’d rather stay inside
and stare at you
and see you as the boy I met three
years ago! But now I know that you love her
and you’ll talk to God
to make your life a foreign film

we shared a silence in the arcade light
my hands went numb
weren’t we forever?
no, I should have seen this coming
cause you’re sensitive
and you’re writing screenplays

let’s abandon this disaster
let’s escape, let’s love ourselves
I was waiting for disaster
while you only looked at yourself

oh we were chasing a high
from an english classroom,
buses, beaches, gingerbread but
you told me “we’re all just actors”
there’s no blood beneath my skin
but you’re the one who’s lying

let’s abandon this disaster
let’s escape, let’s love ourselves
I was waiting for disaster
while you only looked at yourself

let’s abandon this disaster
let’s escape, let’s love ourselves
you said “we’re only actors”
why’d you always look at yourself?

why’d you always think of yourself?
I was right here to love you
maybe all we are is selfish
but I still waited all night for you

(we’re only selfish
let’s love ourselves)

another parking lot
another hug goodbye
will I ever see your face again?
Track Name: Sophomore
I ruin it all
Track Name: Chemicals
when you caught my eye we weren't different
yet we played charades of indifference
it's too soon to say oh, let's hang out all the time
so I'll put aside my chemicals

afternoons and I am barely sleeping
last night we got wasted and talked interest
chemicals in sight, we slurred and broke the silence
how long should I ignore that they exist?

have I been here before?

now your skin and lips are on my mind
blending with past lovers, what's the difference?
I thought the next morning "this happens all the time"
something in your eyes said nothing's new

have you been here before?
Track Name: Boys pt. II
I've noticed I stay up too late when I don't give a fuck
you've only given me hell to date, wishing me worst of luck
but I still stare at you
though I have better things to do
I have no one else to root for
to pretend we'll have kids someday

did I think so far ahead, after a half a month
of London fog still on your lips, still staring at the eyes?
you told me that you cared
you said everything was fine
but you had someone else to do
while I waited and stared at you

I kinda wanna kiss you, I kinda wanna fuck
I kinda wanna deck you, I kinda wanna stay

I love it when I see you with her, are you ever alone?
You’re always moving on too fast, I’m finally alone
but I can't blame you
I kinda did the same
but I wanted to love you
and be caught in your whirlwind oh

I kinda wanna kiss you, I kinda wanna fuck
I kinda wanna deck you, I kinda wanna stay

I never will forgive you
I'll never let this go
I never will forgive you
I'll never let this go

I kinda wanna kiss you, I kinda wanna fuck
I kinda wanna deck you, I kinda wanna stay

Did I think so far ahead after a half a month?
How could I think so far ahead after a half a month?
Track Name: Cheap
I forgot the way you say goodbye
Adam, I still wonder what’s ahead of you
They say “you’ll be famous, you’ll be a star”
Honest, though they call you baby, I agree

You try to calm my earnest musings
But, Adam, you will always love your muses
Adam, I’m uncertain yet authentic
String me along again and I stay true

And I try to cling to these
Fleeting moments when you breathe
In time with me

Once we lied and drove your car from them
I watched the yellow lights, or were they stars
It’s the blurry dark that makes you talk like this
Leaving tokens with your empty loving words

And I try to cling to these
Fleeting moments when you breathe
In time with me
In time

It’s cheap I know to dwell on throes
It’s cheap to brood on what’s below
It’s cheap I know to throw it all again

It’s cheap I know to dwell on throes
It’s cheap to brood on what’s below
It’s cheap I know to throw it all against the wall
Track Name: Bread & Butter
I will charm another with my messy hair and dried up lips
More love than your mother, I crawl out of bed and take a drink
Eating bread and butter, I know that I got boring
But I'll claim another with my average smile and used up lips

I know I got boring
I was a phase
Track Name: I Don't Move On
oh, the moonlight makes your hair look great
I hold your halo in my hands
you don't care for it

we get up the next morning, faces look grotesque
so in the end I guess
we want this dead

I guess that was two years ago but I don't move on
there's no such thing as fun
when you grow up

maybe I could get lost in somebody's eyes
that never changes anything
though I think it will

I don't wanna be another dead eyed student as I am
you sleep much these days?
I could dress in yellow and be someone's light, but I'm not

I miss fascinations, I miss dooming dreams
That I had for you
Never alone

But you took me to hell, still wondering what I did wrong
so now I’m half awake
building resumes

I don't wanna be another dead eyed student as I am
I don’t sleep much these days
I could dress in yellow and be someone's light, but I'm not

so tell me something wonderful that changes everything
Track Name: The Great Speculation of 2014
I thought there would be more to say to you
Before you broke in half
But it’s useless to expect some final scene
Like in the movies

This won’t be the only day
That you’ll forget my name

Should I be keeping themes in mind while
I play Where Are You Now? Where are you now?
I won’t see you in the quiet, in the crowd
Growing up doesn’t scare me anymore

(I know it's pretty to say forever
like in the movies)

Promises so beautiful
Forever’s just a phase
This won’t be the only day
That you’ll forget my name

We’re not for a film score
To be analyzed by the crowd
We’re just two dumb kids who don’t know what they’re doing

I thought there would be more to May
Once you broke in half
But it’s useless to lay down my final thoughts
This is no movie
Track Name: The Great Speculation of 2015 - Live
Maybe I’ll see you after work
2 years from now and it’s perfect
an hour drive and it’s worth it, oh

Could be your obligated roommate
in your Portland apartment
But I ruin it all and move to Montreal

Sorry, I needed change
I hope you stay the same
Your whole life’s in front of you

But I still don’t see you, no I still don’t see you

Maybe I’ll see your face in pixels
2 months from now and it’s hopeless
Why did we go and try this again?

I see that you belong in the cosmos
new albums and new changes
I couldn’t keep up, so you say goodbye

“Katy, you never change
Sixes are all the same”
Will we ever speak again?

Will I ever see you, will I ever see you?

Maybe I’ll see you in the valley
2 days from now with your family
I forget what it's like to be out alone

You see my growing concern
We try our best to discuss it
But we ruin it all and make out on the couch

Oh, but you know things change
and I love to stay the same
I’d still wait it out for you

when I never see you, when I never see you
