about

Since 2013, TJ Boudreau has been recording off-kilter pop songs in one form or another under the moniker My Tulpa. While the cast of musicians around him is constantly rotating, at the core is always TJ's signature quirky songwriting takes on love and death. The first glimpse of the newest iteration of the band came earlier this year with the electronic-leaning six song EP 'Oh, Amy'. This album further displayed not only the growth of the songwriting process but also the range and diversity in musical style. Now the band is readying their next EP: 'Charley Braun' is six more songs that work as a counter-part to 'Oh, Amy'. While the latter tells the story of a woman who wants to die because she cannot be with the one she loves, 'Charley' follows a man who has no will to live until he finds love (but the world is ending anyway). To bring these two stories together Head vs. Heart Records will be releasing a limited dual-color double EP cassette tape with each side hand painted a different color for each album.

Track Name: Oh Amy
Amy knows that she wants other girls
Amy knows that she wants other worlds
Amy knows she hurts when you lie
Amy knows that you’ll have other guys

And when will she just find
Another piece of mind
In herself


Amy knows that you’ll want other guys
Amy knows she hates it when you cry
Amy knows that you’ll go out tonight
Amy knows that she just wants to lie in your arms
In your arms

And when will you just find
Another piece of mind
In yourself
In yourself

She knows, she knows
When you’re around
She knows, she knows
When you’re in town
And Amy swears
That she’ll be mine
And Amy swears
That she’ll be fine
She’ll be fine
She’ll be fine
She’ll be alright
Track Name: Me Next
I’ll ask Amy
When I’ll get my turn
She says that I’m too
Dumb to learn
I go off to love me
By myself
She knows that she wants
Someone else

I can see shadows
Underneath her eyes
I know that she’s had
Another sleepless night
Maybe when we’re older
She’ll be alright
But for now we’re young
Just trying to survive

And Amy knows she knows
And Amy knows she knows
Amy knows she knows
Oh Amy knows she knows

And maybe when we’re older
The ground will turn to fire
Maybe when we’re older
She won’t want to die
And maybe when we’re older
No one will survive
No one will survive
No one will survive

And Amy knows she knows
And Amy knows she knows
Track Name: Mirrors
When will the mirror show me different?
When it’s looking back at me
When will the mirror show me visions,
Of the girl I want to be?
When will the mirror show me something?
Like who I’m supposed to be

When will the mirror show the demons,
That are living inside me?
When will the mirror show me visions,
Of the girl I want to be?
Track Name: Demon
Your spirit is not in my soul
Your words are hitting it home
These demons won’t leave me alone
I know that I can’t control it

Guess it, doesn’t
Matter, matter
Anymore, anymore
My heart, my bones
Shatter, shatter
On the floor, on the floor

Honey the devil is taking my soul, my soul
And sweetheart I’m afraid of growing old
Without you in my life

I don’t know how to tell you when
I need help
I’m scared that I might not
Be going to heaven
With you by my side

And one day you will see
My little demons
Part of my soul
My little secrets
That make me whole
Track Name: Apnea
I just can’t breathe
The way I used to
It makes me weak
The way he sees through you

We’ll all fight hard
We’ll all get ours
And we’ll all be the same
In the end

I wear my pretty dress
You wear your torn up mess
Me with my beat up keds
You with you torn up head

And the boys up on the hill
Won’t fuck you like I will
And the girls down in the square
Don’t have your pretty hair
Track Name: Monster
You call me a monster, you call me an s.o.b
You call me an asshole, you ain’t no kennedy looking girl

You call me a monster, you call me an s.o.g
You call me a monster, but what do you want me to be

I could never do that
I could never be that type of girl
I could never want that
I could never be a monster in your world
Track Name: Charley Braun
Charley heard that when you die
The last thing you see repeats a million times
Charley's not that scared to die
At least that means that's the end of his life

He just wants to see something different
He just wants to repeat a pleasant vision

Charley thinks of love and death
He thinks of things that he regrets
Charley knows he's gonna be the one to die alone
Stinking on the cellophane floor

And he'll just see
The white tiles there
and he'll just see
The walls that he's left bare

Charley's alive but never living
Charley's alive but never giving
Anyone any love

Charley's sad all the time
He's always mad
He's never fine
Track Name: The Great Lustration
When I heard what was happening
I said why the fuck
Should I care?

Never been one for this world
Nobody ever noticed I was here
But I was here

Your prayers won't save you now
We'll all face god somehow
But how, I just don't know

Everyone is freaking out
Went outside and walked around
Watched the lootings and the shootings
It's not my place to stop a god damn thing
A god damn thing

Your prayers won't save you now
We'll all meet god somehow
But how, I just don't know

The whole world will be purified
They said it's okay to cry
As long as you believe in Christ
So I think that I should commit suicide
I'm not afraid to die
Not I
Track Name: Joan
Joanie gets home from school
And she feels used
When she's touching herself
She cries hard
When she hears her dad's
Car coming up the drive
She don't know what she should do
So she runs and hides

Joanie gets picked on by the boys
They chase her 'round
She does just what they ask her to
She follows through
No question no concern
For herself or her body
Track Name: Do U Wanna Die With Me
When I saw you I thought
I went blind
Cause you have the prettiest eyes
I've seen in my whole life, so

Do you wanna die with me?
That'd be nice
It's all I've ever wanted
From this life

I want you
More than you
Could ever know
'Cause I've been
So alone
So alone, so

Do you wanna die with me?
That'd be nice
It's all I've ever wanted
From this life
Track Name: Love Is a Consolation
When I used to fight
I only bruised my fists
When I used to sleep
I only dreamed of this
Now it seems all I need
Is more of this

I know she's prettier
When she's not crying
But I just can't help her out
Before we're dying
So please lord I ask you this
because you owe me
Who would do that to her?
Who'd hurt my Joanie?
Track Name: When The World Ends You Should Be Holding Someone's Hand
When the world is ending, will you know?
As the bombs they blow up overhead
I'm not dead
I'm just fine
