Track Name: OK
It seemed like we were closer in the dark
until the sun came up
I saw how far I had to go

Girl I'm running out of minutes to give
so if you're alright
could I get a minute back from last night?

You wouldn't remember me anyway
you can forget me
its ok

But if you want me for one more day
take me for granted
its ok

She looked for her ring and acted strange
am I to blame?
is it ever gonna be the same?

She grabbed her keys and walked out the door
I hope she'd say more
but she got what she came here for

she didn't know me
like she did the night before
when she told me I am yours
Track Name: River Song
The first turn out of Chicago
Before we broke into
Different roads
Watched the drummers as they go
I'll follow

Familiar eyes seeing my
Broken gaze for what it was
Not nothing
But it's hard to read the signs
When problems

Only happen
When people have a different
Expectation
Expectations

Taking them for granted
We know what it leads to
Never reaching
Expectations

Remember what happened
The last time we didn't know
To let it go

I don't want to get carried away
Missing the future I can't get
Carried away
Losing the few things I had
Track Name: Excuse Me, I'm Smarter Than You
She said I gotta come down
before I call it, call it whoring
but I don't want the story now
I'll write my own cuz I'm fucking boring

It seems obvious to me
I know one and one makes three
Don't need to teach me history
cuz I won't believe it no I'll never believe it

I'll stick with fuck you
cuz its easier than thinking bout the truth
and the truth it makes me blue
can't you see
I'm just protecting what I think of me
So don't prove me wrong
cuz I won't believe it no I'll never believe its

True
Believe its
True
Believe its

She said I gotta come down
before I call it, call it whoring
but I don't want the story now
I'm just sad cuz I'm fucking boring
Track Name: Shaken
My friend is singing about being a rich man
and I am talking to my curtains
begging them to block the sun
begging them to block the sun

Oh, Shaken
I'm shook to the bone
I'm tired of this raining on my
window pane, won't let me see at all
You'll be my friend
but until then, let me keep my eyes closed

I'll offer you the palm of my hand
take it if you want me to stick around
cigarette burns will be all that I have
I'll leave my better half below the ground

Oh, Shaken
I'm shook to the bone
I'm tired of this raining on my
window pane, won't let me see at all
You'll be my friend
but until then, let me keep my eyes closed

I read that you said you never loved
I wish you'd never said for me to let go
I was holding onto you but

I read what you said and now I know
I can't get you out of my head
but I can let go
Track Name: Dreamtease
Horror, disbelief, acceptance, resignation
a chain of events occur when my dreams they tease me

Do they show me a new life where things are better?
So I may accept the limits of this world

Where are you in real life?
How far away?

hanging off a cliff, never truly knowing
peaceful, flailing, undone, patient
a collage of mind states inside my head

Where are you in real life?
How far away?
Track Name: Girl, Frankly
It's been a while, been a while since I have
seen your face round here
don't know what to say cuz every day

You're in my head, in my head I always
say it perfectly
do you want to be with me

So take a walk, take a walk with me and
I'll drop all the signs
If you can read I'm sure you'll see it but

Oh, the time, oh I know its 5 AM
but please don't go
oh please don't go

Cuz Girl, frankly I
wanna see you again but I
know you're leavin'

I wanna kiss you goodbye
but all I can say instead
is a friendly till then

I'll be back, I'll be back you said and
dropped the perfect line
come see me out by the sea

and so I wept, Oh I cried inside all day
while I was dying on the job
I couldn't wait to make the call
Oh I wanna see your face again
I'm sorry I'm just excited but

Oh, shit
I've got no answer
I hope I didn't blow too soon
Maybe I should finally quit
and just get passed her
but I don't want to admit
that this is it

Cuz Girl, frankly I
wanna see you again but I
know you're leavin'

I wanna kiss you goodbye
but all I can say instead
is a friendly till then
Track Name: Laugh Laugh Laugh
I guess I'll get no sleep tonight
Say seventeen and feel alright
take a step away from every day
I'm tired of trying to be sane
whatever comes I'll take and run away

Sun I didn't know I'd see you again
Sun I didn't know I'd see you again my friend

An open door invites me in
so I walk up the stairs again
Familiar walls but I'm not welcome now
shut off the lights we're headed out
run away take take a breath and laugh

Sun I didn't know I'd see you again
Sun I didn't know I'd see you again my friend
Track Name: Phoenix
Orange sky
Too soon to be this bright
Late at night
My eyes can't fight the sight

Of you and I
Alone it seemed so right
There's no time
The sun begins to rise
Begins to smile
Begins to cry
Sighing

Fire blooms of orange and blue
Sing softly
I am tired I am
wired Wrongly

Trees at night
Look like open wounds
like mine
Black and rotten
But forgotten
For all but you
Dying for

Fire blooms of orange and blue
Sing softly
I am tired I am
wired Wrongly

I wish I could

Go back to Phoenix
I'll make the drive
The Stars were brighter there

It's always cold in
Los Angeles
We were happier there
Away from here
