credits

released 21 October 2014

“Now is the time of our awkwardness” was written, performed, recorded, mixed, and mastered (if you can call it that) by Joshua Jesty with the assistance of
Ray Arthur Flannagan: Electric Guitars on “you may have synesthesia but all I see are the blues”
Russell Flannagan: piano on “you may have synesthesia but all I see are the blues”
Tom Pivovar mixed “So Nice” and then Joshua had a Diva moment and put his own mix on the EP, but Tom is exceptional at his craft and you should have him mix everything, even mentos and diet coke
Emily Dove made the artwork and is a few more drawings of bunnies away from cracking… we can all sense it.

Thank You’s: Jon, Dodi, Kaycee, Hazel, Bob, Ben, Mike, JD, Missy, Matt Matt, Justin and Allie, Dan Meath, Owen Biddle, Joshua Kaler, anyone who has tolerated playing music with me, the intense amount of talented friends and artists I know in Cleveland, Johnny West, Bill Squire for letting me tell terrible jokes to crowds sometimes, brunch for being a thing, All the jerks at the RAT program, Emily and Tom for putting up with me, and you for being the type of person who reads liner notes in this day in age. Thank you for your support, whether I’m good at displaying it or not, it means the world to me that you listen and I thank you and hope you find what you’re looking for in these songs.

Track Name: let's go dancing
it wasn't ever made clear
just like the gray in my hare
who knows how I appear
when she's all the way over there

it doesn't feel alright
nor does it feel like a crime
I don't have a clue
how to get you in time

oh the folly of the heart and fear of being burned at the stake

there's no need to break
down
I just need to know
if you'll put on your best gown

let's go dancing

it doesn't even make sense
and just like the gray in my hair
when you didn't expect it
of course that's when it was there
Track Name: if you could get over him
so just get out of my head
if you won't get close
what is it that he has
that I don't?

is the best you had when he treated you oh so bad
baby
if you could get over him, you could get under me

I don't mind
cause if you give me time you'll find my words true
but how many hoops do I have to jump through
to get to you?

get out of my head
if you can't let go
of this wandering eyed liar
with nothing to show

get close to me
til the skin meets skin
lets set those bones
to trembling
Track Name: so nice
you got me throwing things away
I don't like that part of it
I think you have fun making me wait
I don't like that part of it

who else are you auditioning for that
coveted part
the one who you let in
to play with your heart

oh I would treat you so nice baby

sometimes I don't know what to say
I don't like that part of it
time moves so slow when you don't stay
I don't like that part of it

is this the part where you let others
come and weigh in
I don't need anyones thought
when we're so close swaying

oh I would treat you so nice baby
I would treat you so nice baby
baby

don't you hate it when things get tied up?
no
is that so

sometimes you're all that's on my mind
I don't like that part of it
when you say you want love yet I'm not deep in your eyes
I hate that

there's a part of me that wants a piece of you
but I more than want all the other parts too

oh I would treat you so nice baby
Track Name: it can't go wrong
you got a lot of nerve
and a lot of nerve endings
I got what I deserved
thinking there was substance in pretending you

had any more in mind
than an evening and a memory
that you could cast aside
when you found a better one to carry through

here I am, wanting you so
while you just want me to let go

we should address, you left your dress
as my address last night
so when you coming back to get it
when you coming back?

cause it can't go wrong
unless it started out right

as I recall your mouth
whispered sweet nothings in the moonlight
the sweetest nothing of all
telling me that everything would be alright

I can't recall the last
time that I felt so stranded
I was oblivious thinking
I had finally landed safe

come on come on come on
let's do the breakdown
let's go all the way down

cause it can't go wrong
unless it started out right
Track Name: kiss in public
it's a shame what they did to you
made you not feel as beautiful as you are
made it seem okay to fade away

but I like you a little more than like
so if you're not telling me to take a hike

don't you wanna kiss in public?

it's a shame what they didn't do
and then again it's shame
that when it came to all the bullshit and lies you listened

don't you wanna kiss in public
don't you wanna make a scene
don't you wanna dance around the room
to a made up beat

don't you wanna kiss in public
don't you wanna really start
staying up all night with me
don't you wanna shake up your (my) heart

don't you wanna kiss in public?
Track Name: let's make it weird
you were happy with what you had
and then I just had to appear
come on come on come on
let's make it weird

he said he loves you so
yet you wanna disappear
come on come on come on
let's make it weird

it's not like you were counting on some hopeless little fairy tale
maybe we both need something that was only built to fail

when you're in the corner of my eye
you're the only thing that's clear
come on come on come on
let's make it weird

let's both close our eyes
and blindly try to steer
come on come on come on
let's make it weird

he'll only treat you well
he'll only call you dear
come on come on come on
let's make it weird

I don't know what's coming up next
so there's nothing ahead to fear
come on come on come on
let's make it weird
Track Name: you may have synesthesia but all I see are the blues
don't give me that look
I know that it's time to go soon

so I become the needy one
who tries to draw the time out it's true

there's enough going on that feels so wrong
and I don't know what to do

can you blame me for wanting to forget it all and dive
deeper in you

I don't want to let go of you
I don't want to let go of you
I don't want to let go of you
cause when I do
all I see is the blues

where's my evenings where
you are there and the sun can sod off

where's the peace of mind I could find
in knowing that you don't want to go

where's the false sense of security
that you might wanna be next to me when it all goes down

where's your lips against mine and no sense of time
in which we can drown
Track Name: hate to say it
I may be the fool
and I may mean nothing to you
but all the traffic in my head
stops when you cross my mind

despite all the stormy weather
you just keep getting better

and I hate to say it
but I'm in love

you got that spark
you got that glow
I should know
I see it as you walk away

I don't want a soul to think he's obsessed with her
but you just keep getting better

and I hate to say it
but I'm in love

when you take a chance and get close
you either build a prison or a home
when it comes to you
that's a "what if" I want to know

I hate to say it
but I'm in love

I'm in love
