The EP is ready for you.

The EP is ready for you.

My instructions while you listen to this little collection of songs:

1. headphones. a cup of coffee. a letter from someone you still love; get it out from the box under your bed.

2.cry. cry and cry and cry and cry and it’s okay. i’m crying right along with you.

3. tear the letter up. if you have strength to do it. If you can’t, I understand. but know that it is time to let go.

4. my dear, let go.

5. that’s all. you don’t have to buy the album or a dumb t shirt or even go to a show. but you must let go.

6. we always end up where we’re supposed to be.

    are you where you’re supposed to be?

oh, me?

oh, me?

Just sitting on my typewriter. probably writing love letters to PETA.
