Joe Lund I think the the title of this song should have another colon in it such as : Ironic because I love the vocals and the way her voice sounds in this song so much. Also the line 'maybe there's a vampire/empire state in me, is a fantastic line.

I want to make a movie about my songwriting life called Pitch Imperfect because I have far from perfect pitch. Sometimes I even sing in between notes on the piano.



Why do things keep disappearing on me?
What do you think?
What is it that you need?
Seems like I've got nothing on my mind to feed upon,
but lost souls will always be mine,
but maybe there's a vampire/empire state in me.

How are you going to celebrate?
When your pretty women stop getting raped?
Seems like there's a Blue Sky in me today.
What rating would this movie make?

PITCH IMPERFECT: Why can't I sing?
Why do I never ever wear a GOD DAMN RING?
CUZ I"m Straight and Narrow like a Quiver of Arrows in a can of Pringles
Fat Free: That's all that I need.

I'd like to laugh all the time
but the fat fuckers don't have the abs to stomach my pain.
How much more do I need to stand up for
so I can just walk away, just walk away, just walk away
and finally celebrate a much needed birthday break.

My name will always be lame.

My name is Pauline Juliet Ku, and I love myself again.
I was born May 18th, 1986.

Remember, I remember everything that moves.

Thank you Jorge for taking a shower today so I could compose this song dedicated to you, Jorge.

I started writing music quite late into my senior year of college. Too late to major in it, but my classical training in piano comes out in my songs. I write mostly love songs and funny songs about my boyfriend's dog.
