about

my grandmother became very unwell at the end of march, and as much as i wanted to write a solely phone themed song, i became obsessed with the fact that i didn't have any appropriate shoes to wear to a funeral.

lyrics

i’ve been checking the weather for new jersey
which is not a typical thing for me.
but i’ve been concerned about you and the weather;
what if you both take a turn for the worse?

i don’t want to buy another black dress,
but it’s still quite cold and anyway,
i will need new funeral shoes.

i don’t want to talk about it, i wanna cry for three straight days,
coz waiting for you to pass just might kill me.
coz who’s gonna ask me to sing for them now?
and then swear at my dad in italian?

i don’t want to buy another black dress,
but it’s still quite cold and anyway,
i will need new funeral shoes.

these terrible things that plague one’s thoughts;
like i’ll never see you smile again,
and how awful it is to love anyone, when we all end up dying.
but i hope you’ll be happy in st. gertrude’s,
with the chief by your side and no more pain.

but i don’t want to buy another black dress,
and i don’t want to say goodbye to you yet,
and i don’t want to need funeral shoes.
