jeremyh1993 This album is a joy to listen to; the sound is complex and yet relaxing and the songs have a way of getting stuck in your head.

Highly recommended! Favorite track: Pansy.

Jealous of that flavor That I will never taste again Once so sweet, tastes like concrete Got my words all twisted up like the Cherry stem behind your teeth Feel it in my tone and hear it in my touch And if things were different Like how you said they were last week Would you still be with me? Drugstore love You fell into my arms so easy But it wasn’t made to last Lately, I’ve been Wishing I could buy your love from The drugstore Although cheap, at least I’d Know where to get more It feels insignificant Once so harmonious Let's go inside I don’t wanna fight with you tonight I know you think I’m pretty But you never say it to me Admire the dogwood downstream Drugstore love You fell into my arms so easy But it wasn’t made to last Lately, I’ve been Wishing I could buy your love from The drugstore Although cheap, at least I’d Know where to get more

Eighteen 04:50 video
If feelings are fleeting Then why is my heart so sure of herself? Not in good health Wish my room wasn’t in Idaho Then maybe I could live in your backyard Or is that too far? Such sweet, sugar-coated dreams Haunt me, I don’t wanna fall asleep It’s just right around the corner Right around the corner Eighteen, so sweet Eighteen baby She’s my baby But I don’t know if that makes sense anymore Not the one you adore Slow dancing in the kitchen Maybe that will even the score Or are we done for? Such sweet, sugar-coated dreams Haunt me, I don’t wanna fall asleep It’s just right around the corner Right around the corner Eighteen, so sweet Eighteen baby

Clementine 03:28
All for you Turpentine, like cherry wine See through you Clementine, all the time Clementine, so eager Always wanting more Couldn’t really see What you ever saw in her Clementine, so perfect How I do adore your summer skin Was it ever pure? I gave you all I had But I guess that’s too bad All for you Turpentine, like cherry wine See through you Clementine, all the time Clementine so gentle But you know it hurts Wouldn’t wanna be sleeping on Your dirty floor Clementine, so fragile But I’m not like her Dancing in the mirror Are you really sure? This isn’t what we planned Life with her must be bland All for you Turpentine, like cherry wine See through you Clementine, all the time I never should’ve kissed you Falling asleep in the bathroom This space feels so far I hope you remember me The way I used to be Summer has come and gone

Pansy 03:02
Rose garden in your eyes I don’t see it now I don’t know what to do with my time When I’m not always spending it on you I know I’m better off cause I see in shades of blue Pansy, that’s all you’ll ever be Pansy, burning holes in your T.V. screen Pansy, don’t you know what it means to me? She runs through my veins My primary I.V. shit goes straight to the brain Well, I know I’m better off I know I’m better off without it Took months to understand To finally wrap my head around it These shades of blue Pansy, that’s all you’ll ever be Pansy, burning holes in your T.V. screen Pansy, don’t you know what it means to me? It doesn’t feel like it used to when I look at you

I miss that song you sang Before you went to the hospital And now I know it’ll never be heard again I think your neighbors think I live here I’ve been smoking off your back porch since august Well now I know that they won’t call the cops when they see me through your Bedroom window Now it’s spring and you’re in bloom Your whole wardrobe is baby blue I don’t know what to do I didn’t think we’d ever move this far away I’d make a list of anyone who’s ever Twisted my words up and Now oh who will trust me now? I picture waking up next to you On the twin bed in your old room Now it’s spring and you’re in bloom Your whole wardrobe is baby blue I don’t know what to do I didn’t think we’d ever move this far away

Riding bikes in the street Sun on my neck I wanna kiss your lips
 Teenage secrets I wish that I could keep But you don’t like it When I’m on my knees Ocean static in my brain No one to hold like this Ain’t ever gonna change Laying down in the dirt Sun on her face I been thinking about that kiss Teenage secrets I wish that I could keep But you don’t like it When I fall asleep I fell in love With the sun behind her eyes If a kiss is a curse Then she’s my demise Ocean static in my brain No one to hold like this Ain’t ever gonna change

about

Backyard Boarding School is a collection of songs by Butch Wifey, consisting of six tracks written over the last six years. Most of the songs on this EP are feel-good indie tunes, but a few are a little more emotional. There are several themes throughout Backyard Boarding School, like yearning for something more, fear of growing up, unrequited love, and coming to terms with your own sensitivity. The EP aims to induce feelings of nostalgia, giddiness, innocence, and a warm kind of love. Backyard Boarding School tells the story of Butch Wifey growing up during the most important years of her life and how her feelings evolved and matured over time.
