I Need A Hug

  • Record/Vinyl + Digital Album

    "Bubblegum Romance" is back on vinyl! It contains longtime faves that you all seem to like, such as "I'm In Love With Everyone I Know", "Freezing In Florida", "Nerdy Girls", "RetroLowFi", "Hot Topic Kids", "I Need a Hug", "No London In Brazil", "Bounce Bounce Bounce" and more. Plus we've included a bonus track: a version of "Music Can Heal" recorded at the final sessions. I'm not sure why I didn't include it the first time around, as I consider this to be the definitive version of the song. That recording is exclusive to the vinyl version!

    **TENTH ANNIVERSARY OF "BUBBLEGUM ROMANCE". ISSUED ON LIMITED VINYL FOR THE VERY FIRST TIME (bubblegum pink with bonus track!)**

    I couldn't be more proud to make this announcement. My album "Bubblegum Romance" turns ten years old this month. To celebrate, we've pressed a limited amount of the album on this delicious looking pink vinyl. This is the first time it's ever been on wax, still contains longtime faves that you all seem to like, such as "I'm In Love With Everyone I Know", "Freezing In Florida", "Nerdy Girls", "RetroLowFi", "Hot Topic Kids", "I Need a Hug", "No London In Brazil", "Bounce Bounce Bounce" and more. Plus we've included a bonus track: a version of "Music Can Heal" recorded at the final sessions. I'm not sure why I didn't include it the first time around, as I consider this to be the definitive version of the song. That recording is exclusive to this special colored vinyl version!

lyrics

Lately I've been too paranoid to keep my friends
Everyone including my mom is rippin' off my ends, yo
All I wanna do is take pills and drink booze
But I even freak out if I'm droppin' ludes

And people are sayin' I should go and see the doctor
They're sayin', "Marc with a C, you've finally gone off your rocker"
It seems I've lost my marbles, leave me alone
I'm a couple grandmas short of a retirement home

Where I can lock my door and unplug the phone
I'd board up the windows but the AC's broke
I got things to do, I think I'm gonna
Exchange my lithium for marijuana
Won't someone give me a hug?

I don't have a girl cause they still don't like me all that much
I'm drinkin' Robitussin cause everybody needs a crutch
I'll drink the whole damn bottle if it gets much worse
I'm like Winona Ryder fillin' up her purse

And I can lock my door and unplug the phone
I'd board up the windows but the AC's broke
I got things to do, I think I'm gonna
Exchange my lithium for marijuana
Won't someone give me a hug?

It's nothing that some Percocet can't fix
Throw a little Valium and self-loathing in the mix

I wanna change my life, but first I better change my socks
Your heart, mind, and soul, they can never have too many locks
Cause now my cable's out, the screen stays blue
I'm more strung out than Motley Crue

And I can lock my door and unplug the phone
I'd board up the windows but the AC's broke
I got things to do, I think I'm gonna
Exchange my lithium for marijuana
Won't someone give me a hug?

Won't someone give me a hug?
