"Swear I Was There" contains a lyrical extract of "Julia" by Low Millions. Written by Adam Cohen....
I swear I was there, I must have waited hours for you.
I swear I was there, even went a little sour on you.
I swear I was there, I can't believe you thought I forgot you.
I swear I was there, I still have the flowers I brought you.

And the wisteria tree was ignoring me.
And the concrete under my feet boring me.

I made it to the station but the schedule had changed.
I tore my umbrella right before it rained.
I guessed that I missed you or maybe you never showed.
I waited there for hours and hours, I guess I'll never know.

And the setting sun said its work was all done.
And twenty-four more cigarettes went in and out of my lungs.
And the wisteria tree was ignoring me.
The concrete under my feet boring me.
I swear I was there, I swear I was there.

Wait, why are you going over there?
Wait, stay right here!
Wait, why are you going over there?
Wait, stay right here!

6th avenue is buzzing; you know the way it does.
I'm doing practically nothing except thinking about us
And the kitchen's have this leak and it's almost
As if it's speaking about our love, about our love.
Should I curse at myself like a car that won't start?
Should I cry out for some help from the bottom of this heart?
Should stare out the window and watch New York distort in the dark?

Oh! Baby, baby please, don't become a memory
A bittersweet piece of my history!
Oh! Baby, baby please, don't become a sad song
About how good love used to be!
No! Don't become someone that I used to know
Someone I used to love, some long time ago
Don't become just someone, I have to close my eyes to see.
Oh baby, please, oh baby please!
