it’s not your birthday so i did not get a card but it doesn’t matter cause i did not get that far inside your house should’ve asked you to come out instead i stare at my phone waiting around it’s been a while since i have attempted to forgo my sleep schedule to kiss somebody new tonight at your place i now know what it means to feel your age and i cant say how much longer i can wait because it’s three in the morning and i’m close to giving up but then you ask if i’m leaving or not and i think oh my god i only wanted to get back to way i was before i met you replays of that moment run through my head but i couldn’t even kiss you in any of them

i still remember what you said to me after reading about our incompatibility we disagree on everything except that we should not be dating because according to the moon i guess the only thing we’re destined to do is end don’t know if i believe but this way i can say that i’m not to blame for keeping you waiting cause when you got to know me thought you were meeting someone else and then you felt more lonely than being by yourself so i look up your birthday and what it says about mine now i believe you that our stars were not aligned help i’m getting in too deep yesterday i actually told somebody “because of my rising sign now’s the time to trust my instinct” but lately what my gut tells me is that i should stay grounded in reality can i ask when you were born to try and find out more bad reasons for my overthinking you never got to know me cause i could never be myself and you were feeling lonely i didn’t know how to help so i looked up your birthday and what it said about mine think i always believed somehow our stars were not aligned i don’t know what to say while my heart in retrograde orbits round my brain i watch it spin maybe it’s pretend a cliche prediction will someone tell me what’s my sign again?

you can leave the light on let it flicker in the still of your back hall as i put my shoes on you made a promise that you’d visit me in the fall i ran into your mother neither of us had that much to say but i hear you’re well now and your plane gets in thanksgiving day but pretend it never happened slowly building up a wall between us i could use the satisfaction and you could suck it up and leave me feeling crushed i hear you have a boyfriend i’m really glad you feel okay to date heard that he’s an asshole he plays a sport i tried in second grade i want to turn the light on but my heart’s just full enough to break but pretend it never happened slowly building up a wall between us i could use the satisfaction and you could suck it up and leave me feeling crushed help you let me down if that makes us cool now

been spending too much time on dating websites but the girls i meet well they mostly seem nice maybe i should just do something figure my life out but things get complicated with someone else around at twenty-five not quite where i would like i could be alone forever or maybe fall in love or whatever feeling like it’s now or never should probably fall in love or whatever she’s twenty-two years old just graduated tells me that “boston sucks it’s so overrated” i try to steer the conversation somewhere else but it’s obvious it’s not going to help twenty-six feels like there’s some things i’ve missed i could be alone forever or maybe fall in love or whatever feeling like it’s now or never i should fall in love or whatever it might help me to forget her if i could fall in love or whatever don’t want to be alone forever i should fall in love or whatever
5.
guess i wasn’t your type but the way you looked me in the eyes and told me that you had some free time next week some night well i kind of thought i might at least get a response your silence only made me want to forget about you and damn did it seem rude you never texted to say “hey last night it was great” guess you don’t feel the same way all we had was an expiration date but then i see i’ve been the ghost here for a week while looking back through conversations from our chat history i realize it was me that never texted to say “hey last night it was great” i apologize for the wait hope you didn’t think we had an expiration date the day ends then restarts each notification i get nearly stops my heart but not one is from you you were gone before you were something to lose now i don’t know what to say i think we might’ve been great it’s better never than late now we’re long past our expiration date

i’ve gotta get outta here sometime or another get off my ass make my way back to work cat-sitting doesn’t call for undivided attention you know i know i’ve seen too many fall apart this way i swore i wouldn’t add to the tally if we’re true to the narrative i’m no different i’m just another graduate starving for work however she can get it i came home from a gig that made me hate music i’m signing a lease that i can’t afford with my friends ain’t this the dream to be floating a family while they fight over money i’d go broke to put an end to it to give them something else to do get me out of the middle haven’t caught myself a break since i opened my eyes twenty-five years ago they called me beloved and they spelled it all wrong it’s a beautiful sentiment i’ve never felt less like it’s true for anyone that matters so cut me slack i’m just trying to get back on my feet do the things i thought i’d have done by nineteen i’m so hard on myself well i wonder if self-loathing’s learned behavior if so can i unlearn it too? i tell everyone i love they’re wonderful they’re doing their best and i’ve never been prouder and i want to believe in me too maybe i could believe in me too

Party Ethic 03:06
it started as flirtation just a friend of a friend had some pleasant conversation don’t remember what we said months later in the basement well we watched a couple bands i laughed in your face when thought i didn’t want to hold your hand and you said do you want me to stay? do you want me to stay? do you want me to stay another night live another life try another time as long as it feels right now i’m in your backyard where i’ll try to pretend that you don’t live so far hold my words instead of what i’d say cause i wanted to stay yeah i wanted to stay that won’t make it okay i wanted to stay another night live another life try another time but something doesn’t feel right
8.
we were walking with our hands at our sides i believed you when you told me you were fine i remember standing outside your house it was freezing waiting for you to come out but i know now i’m getting tired of just feeling okay seems regressive but we’re better off this way just treat it like a mantra till my heart starts to cave god i hope i can believe in it someday cause i’m not okay just say that i don’t love you like i used to and i never wanted to be closer to you just keep repeating it till we agree all that we had was just good kissing chemistry you said if something’s gonna happen it’ll happen on it’s own i don’t buy it for a minute even if you’re sold try to focus on the good stuff but i’ll feel bad anyway as if the memory wasn’t far enough away so i’ll say that i don’t love you like i used to and i never wanted to be closer to you just keep repeating it till we agree all that we had was just good kissing chemistry but i know that i still love you like i used to and i think i wanna be closer to you just keep repeating it till we agree i wonder if we still have good kissing chemistry
9.
i guess that i could stay but then i’m not the one that got away no we won’t be something great besides later on you might not feel the same way i could put up my guard stop myself before i fall too hard hell we took it too far who knew a crush could break your heart? but if i ask nicely again could we be more than just friends? but i don’t want to know what love is yeah i’m giving up on crushes i don’t want to know what love is guess i’m giving up on crushes

D.T.F.L 03:30
i am over caffeinated and i am aware a move is fated but i can’t seem to find the guts to make it here’s a plan close the gap between our faces but if i tell you right now i’ll probably mess it up somehow would you be down to fall in love? you are hard to read in some ways but i think that i could maybe someday and so far doesn’t always mean it’s so great cause we were never really here in one place if we end this right here the ride home might be weird were you down to fall in love? cause i was down to fall in love were you down? you said no hard feelings from me as if that might make it easy

about

Future Teens started as a joke, and perhaps appropriately, the band played their first show in a sweaty basement while a Fourth of July barbecue raged outside. They played three songs at that 2014 show, each less practiced than the one before.

The group's debut EP Still Afraid of Allston was scruffy and full of hooks, a bedroom-pop gem that was recorded "right into the computer—we didn't even use amps," Radin (Vocals/Bass) recalls. The charming, conversational songs demanded a fuller sound in a live setting at the band's shows in their hometown of Boston and beyond and so drummer Dylan Vadakin, guitarist Nick Cortezi, and vocalist and guitarist Amy Hoffman signed on.

In 2017, Future Teens wrapped Bored And Alone, which was self-produced and mixed by Justin Pizzoferrato (Speedy Ortiz, Krill). The band's hooks and energy are bolstered by the four-piece setup; "when you're with three other people, you can bounce ideas off each other and collaboration is just more fulfilling," says Radin.

Though standalone in itself, Bored and Alone is a precursor to the band’s first full length effort, Hard Feelings. The album title encapsulates how each song toes the line between despair and humor. “Having feelings all the time is hard — but everyone has them in one way or another— my goal with these songs was to write about things that happen to nearly everyone at some point in their lives” Radin explains.

Hard Feelings is out now via Take This to Heart Records features 10 tracks of romantic misadventure, miscommunication and mistakes. The album also features songwriting from Hoffman and Vadakin. Hoffman remarks, “These new songs are happy sad. Though some are sadder than others, singing them is always cathartic.”
