about

Cristina Bautista Seattle, Washington

Some people pull themselves together so quietly no one realizes there was any falling apart to begin with.

I'm certainly not about to do that.

Track Name: Let Me Down
We could hold hands on airplanes
We could be the next next big thing
But almost great was long ago
It's hardly worth remembering
But still
We could be the talk of this town
We could never ever let each other down
But you can't let yourself consider
It could be good for you

To have me around
You might want me around
What if what you're looking for is found
Where you least expect it, and you just
Let her down
You might want me around
What if what you're looking for is found?
Do you ever wonder why you let me down?

We could spend whole nights laughing
Winters in the bedroom, summers party-crashing
But your peripheral sight is 20/20
So who cares if the light right in front of you is flashing?
We could be Poster Children among Modern Lovers
We could have awkward dinners charming each other's mothers
And I'll bet you if your mom knew me
She'd tell you you'd be lucky if you

Could have me around
You might want me around
What if what you're looking for is found
Where you least expect it, and you just
Let her down
You might want me around
What if what you're looking for is found?
Do you ever wonder why you let me

Leave without saying goodbye
Almost every single time
You never call
You don't reply
You're a letdown and I wonder why I bother
Is it worth my time
Are you worth my time
Or tell me you just inched your way into my mind all these years
Just to waste my time

We could be what we've wished for

You might want me around
What if what you're looking for is found
Where you least expect it, and you just
Let her down
You might want me around
What if what you're looking for is found?
Do you ever wonder why you let me down?
You let me down.
Track Name: Fool
When something else begins and this comes to an end
I'll be the perfect friend
Good friends don't let good friends sleep alone
So I will take you home
I'll be the fool who's always known

I'll be the fool who knew it all along
The fool who got it right when everyone said that she got it wrong
I'll be the fool whose world you fell into
The fool who fell for you
I'll be the fool who always knew

When you've decided to stop wasting time
I'll still have all of mine
I've been told good things come to those who wait
And boy you hesitate
I'll be the fool that is your fate

I'll be the fool who knew it all along
The fool who got it right when everyone said that she got it wrong
I'll be the fool whose world you fell into
The fool who fell for you
I'll be the fool who always...

When will you realize?

I'll be the fool who knew it all along
The fool who got it right when everyone said that she got it wrong
I'll be the fool whose world you fell into
The fool who fell for you
I'll be the fool who always...
I'll be the fool whose life you justify
The fool you satisfy
The fool who'll still be by your side
I'll be the fool
Track Name: Infrequency
I don't dream about you anymore
I got this far without you
There's nobody that I wait up for
I don't shout your name from freeways to streetlights
The infrequency of signals doesn't keep me up at night

We don't need to rebuild consequence between us
We don't need to try the past again
This isn't love
History breaks me, but I'm together enough to trust
It was enough
It was

It was sporadic and nothing more
All our steps were second-guessed
As ineffective as unsure
The infrequency of signals isn't pulling me from bed
And if I screamed your name from windows
I must have lost my head

We don't need to rebuild consequence between us
We don't need to try the past again
This isn't love
History breaks me, but I'm together enough to trust
It was enough
It was

Time to let it go
It was time to let it go
So why can't I
Just let it go

We don't need to rebuild consequence between us
We don't need to try the past again
This isn't love
History breaks me, but I'm together enough to trust
It was enough
Track Name: Your Jacket
This was the town
For twenty-somethings with quirks
Whose ex-girlfriends were jerks
Whose wives left them letters
This was the town
Where all your soberest thoughts
Came from vodka and pot
I gave you sweet words and watched them rot

Give us this day our illustrious scene
Wide hips and cynics and straight nicotine
If I lose you tonight
I'll give you back

This was the town
That I wish that I grew up in
Committing the cleanest of sins
Ten years before, I'd have been worth indifference
Elitist town
Jaded since the 90s and sure
To pop a coming down cure
There's nothing the right line's not worth
The right line to borrow

Give us this day our illustrious scene
Wide hips and cynics and straight nicotine
If I lose you tonight
I'll give you back
I'll give you back
Your jacket tomorrow
Give us this day our illustrious scene
Wide hips and cynics and straight nicotine
If I lose you tonight
I'll give you back

If I lose you tonight
I'll give you back
