The Real Story

  • 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!

    Includes unlimited streaming of Bubblegum Romance via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.

lyrics

Heavy metal music's just modern blues
If I had hair like that I'd probably be mad too
I once thought I had my depression kicked
Until the power was off due to bills unsent

I'm afraid this song won't make much sense
To anyone except for my friends
I should shut up but I'm just too dense
For the real story go and ask my ex

She keeps detailed forensics on-line
Of how she says I toyed with her mind
I pull away from those that know
Suck it up

Braille is a language, so is ASL
I speak English but not all that well
Revenge is a weapon but so is sex
But for the real story go and ask my ex

She's got therapists in on the joke
And replays all the words that I spoke
I pull away from those that know
Suck it up

I'm feelin' pretty miserable today
Spent all night cold and arguing
And LiveJournal can get you in so much trouble
Gonna have to make it "friends only"

I can't keep all my anger in check
But I didn't know 'til I hit twenty-six
I know the pattern but not what comes next
So for the real story go and ask my ex
She'll tell you 'til she's blue in the mouth
And annoy you like Gwen from No Doubt
I pull away from those that know
Suck it up
Well it's cloggin' my message board
Write a letter
I pull away from those that know
Suck it up
She's got therapists in on the joke
And replays all the words that I spoke
I pull away from those that know
Suck it up
She keeps detailed forensics on-line
Of how she says I toyed with her mind
I pull away from those that know
Suck it up
