Toby Fee Just a blistering album. About a year later I still listen to it a few times a week. Every track is intense but 'Crying In A Bathroom Stall' is the verklempft release it needs to be. Favorite track: Crying In A Bathroom Stall.

Cassandra Starr The sounds are really good, and catchy, and awesome. But also, I really feel like this album (sound and lyrics) was made for me - and that is really awesome and special. It's pretty heavy, but real. I love it. Also I cried a lot. Favorite track: I'm Just Sayin'.

Track Name: The Thing I Do Best
Roll over, hit snooze. There's always time to lose.
Hydrate your migraine, paint your nails, lick your wounds.
Take a bath for an hour and a half,
tuck it back, close your eyes...
can't a girl fantasize?
I wasn't born to lose, I wasn't born to lose
I wasn't born to lose, I wasn't...
Tuck it back, out of view
with all the things you didn't choose
that chose you.
I wasn't born to lose, I wasn't born to lose
I wasn't born to lose
it's just the thing I do
best
it's the thing I do best.
Track Name: Hardest Years
Running with the pack, they had my back--
a bat to the head when the enemy attacked.
East Coast Bad Boys
violence in my name, not a real friend to be had.
Seven years in the gutter, seven years blacked out on the floor
Seven years staring down the barrel
the hardest years for sure.
Hey boys, I dunno
what to say anymore.
Charged hair. Blank stares.
I need a little, a little more support.
A little more support. Yeah.
Seven years in the gutter, seven years blacked out on the floor.
Seven years staring down the barrel
the hardest years for sure.
Seven years in the gutter, seven years blacked out on the floor.
Seven years staring down the barrel
the hardest years for sure.
The hardest years.
Track Name: Thelma & Louise
Watching you dig your thumbnail
into that rotten wood rail
while you tried to tell me
that our ship had sailed
Ya said I'd be good for you
for once I agreed
a rare and privileged sighting
of my self-esteem
Be gentle with this heart, it's been disregarded
Sometimes walking clears my head.
then you come along and fill it up again.
I spent the whole day in my fucking bed.
It seems you spent most of your day
walking through my head.
Be gentle with this heart, it's been disregarded.
You got the pain I got the keys
like Thelma & Louise
won't you take a chance on me
Take a chance on me.
Track Name: I'm Just Sayin'
Do you handle disappointment
with a handle full of poison?
Do you cut the lights and cry like me?
Do you wonder what could be
saying "it's not you, it's me"
cut it off before we ever leave the station.
And I'm just sayin'
you got your reasons
and I believe 'em
but
I'm just sayin'.
Are you daunted by the past
haunted and aghast
that someone might treat you good?
Are you standing in the kitchen
staring at the dirty dishes
daydreaming of a dream
of a dream where ya kissed me?
And I'm just sayin'
you got your reasons
and I believe 'em
but
all I'm sayin's
I'm just sayin'.
Track Name: In Your Truck
Sidestep the puke and broken glass--
no longer tied to that track.
Suicidal patterns get hung out in the past.
In your truck, I feel the rush,
my blood is hot with what we've done
in my head
since I got into this mess.
All I want to say is do you feel the way
we share this space?
But all I'm gonna say is "hey".
And if I spit it out
you'll be sweet
when you let me down.
It's not the silence I can't take,
it's the sad look on your face
it's the way we sit and talk like everything's ok.
All I want to say is do you feel the way
we share this space?
But all I'm gonna say is "hey".
Say the god damn thing.
Just say the god damn thing.
Track Name: Crying In A Bathroom Stall
I don't know what I'm 'sposed to do
but I don't wanna get over you.
I don't know what I'm 'sposed to do
but I don't wanna get over you.
Crying in a bathroom stall,
diggin' my head into the wall.
Crying in a bathroom stall
oh, oh.
Crying in a bathroom stall,
shoulda read the writing on the wall.
Crying in a bathroom stall.
oh, oh.
I don't know how I'm gonna live
how I'm gonna live through this.
You said you can't take the risk
but baby life is short, I want all of it.
And I don't know
what I'm 'sposed to do.
But I don't wanna get over you.
I hope what you chose is right.
I hope you sleep through every night.
No more pain in your beat up life.
Don't worry about me, I do just fine
I'm just puttin' in my time
crying in a bathroom stall,
diggin' my head into the wall.
Crying in a bathroom stall,
oh, oh.
Crying in a bathroom stall,
shoulda read the writing on the wall,
in a bathroom stall:
"Do all tall girls die alone?"
"All tall girls die alone."
