Track Name: If You Come Back
It’s okay to be happy. It’s okay to be sad. If you come back to me, if you come back, I won’t take you for granted, I won’t let you get sad. If you come back to me, if you come back, if you come back…I am now your poisoned lover. Dying in the attic room. Is this what you want me to be love? It’s okay that I miss you. It’s okay that I'm sad. If you come back to me, if you come back, I’ll tell you how much I love you, I’ll tell ‘til you get mad. If you come back to me, if you come back, if you come back…I am now your poisoned lover. Dying in the attic room. Is this what you want me to be love? It’s okay to be happy. It’s okay to be sad. If you come back to me, if you come back, I won’t take you for granted. I won’t let you get sad. If you come back to me, if you come back…
Track Name: No One Quite Like You
I could walk away from you in time, change the way I see you in my mind. Couple months maybe I could be just fine. But I still want your love in my life. I’ll sing it out loud: I’m in love with you. But if you don’t want to see me, please, tell me where I can find someone like you. I’m so sorry I never knew just who I had. But now its clear there is no one quite like you. If my sweetness only makes you sick, I can give you whatever you need. Sow the seed and sit and pray for rain. Love, please just keep your eyes on me. I’ll sing it out loud: I’m in love with you. But if you don’t want to see me, please, tell me where I can find someone like you. I’m so sorry I never knew just who I had. But now its clear there is no one quite like you.
Track Name: When Life Ain't So Hard
Soaking wet, back all cold with sweat, I am lying in my bed, all alone. I awake halfway to dreams. You. You are still here. Well I wish I could give you what you want, but its not a diamond ring, and you don’t know what you want or where you want to be, in the Carolina rain, or the Japanese. Well I hope you come back when life ain’t so hard, ‘cause living don’t feel right without you. To lose a love is like a time machine that brings you back to show you how and when you fucked up. But only through a small window; you scream and yell but she cannot hear your tears. I believe that we are both crazy, so why should you not be here with me. Well I hope you come back when life ain’t so hard, ‘cause living don’t feel right without you.
Track Name: I Won't (Give) Up
Krishna, he ain’t helping me none and Jesus, well to him I’m no one. So I give up, I give up. If I thought you’d change your mind, I would wait ‘til I was just skin and bone but I give up, I give up, I give up. I got a book that tells me why everything feels so off inside. I know sometimes I get out of line, but I got nothing when I think of those times. I’ll give up, if that’s what you want, I’ll give up. I keep digging myself a hole over and over and stepping in it just to feel a little of you. But if I could wake tomorrow with you in my morning, I might for once have nothing to say…If I could just get you alone, I bet you’d forget what has got in your bones. I got a book that tells me why loving you has made me lose my mind. I know that you have been through a lot. Living isn’t easy whatever you got, but don’t give up, don’t give up. And I will stop cursing my gods, keep praying that you want me again. I won’t give up, it’s not what I want, I won’t give up.
Track Name: The Ground
Listen love and listen close: We got a lot to clean, a lot to fix here still. But this here house it ain’t yet broke, and I got a lot of love and lots of it for you. So are we on or are we off? You change day to day, a constant you are not. And I know this house it ain’t yet home, ‘cause we got a learn so come before I burn it to the ground. This here house, well it’s been dark, but we got a lot of love to light it, let’s not burn it to the ground.
Track Name: Plastic
I know we’re not supposed to kiss, but you have got me wanting to break all of the rules. You are just a dream, a girl that I can’t be without, please don’t wake me I am trying to fall asleep. It’s the new year and I still have you. Second time around I won’t delay. I know I worry much, got a couple grey hairs peaking out through all the black I got up there. So if I ask of you a thousand times or more what you’re thinking, please be patient like you always are. It’s the new year and I still have you. Second time around I won’t delay.
Track Name: Under Your Thumb
You got me right under your thumb. I’m sure you know. A pathetic fuck with a phone, the ghost haunting you. I just want to feel alive.
Track Name: Thinner
I sit in self-sabotage, the worst kind of friend. No thought-famine in this head. So what, well you were golden then, but now you’re dents and dust and the tarnish keeps spreading all on through you. But I don’t see it anymore. I paint the same picture every day. It’s nothing more than just four blank walls. So what, well it was blue today and stained my hands the same, and the color keeps spreading all on through you…Well I won’t tell you, “No I need this time when I can go off and explain why the 'why' isn’t much of one at all”…Hold me close, don’t let me down dear, I am trying to get higher. So if you see me in a bad dream, hold me close, don’t let me down dear. Well it took nothing and I was smiling, I just wanted to get high.
Track Name: I'll Be On My Way
Jesus, I know I’ve been a bad, bad boy. So if you got it out for me, tell me what to do and I’ll go, I’ll be on my way.
Track Name: Photo Machine
Honey, get the photograph machine so we can listen back. You know I got the memories and I want to keep going back. You’ll be forgiven when you take me in your arms. I’ll be forgiven when I leave this town alone. Pick up the phone. I know it’s your home, but you don’t forget me. I am just a sinner now, but you, I don’t know but a single thing or two about who have become since you waved goodbye from her window. I’ve become less in these two years than you probably should know. Pick up the phone. I know it’s your home, but don’t forget me…I will go back, because I’m so ready to be let down. Hasn’t killed me yet, so it won’t kill me if it’s not fun. Why would it kill me if you’re having fun? It won’t kill me if you’re having fun.
Track Name: Summer, Save My Long Lost Love
It seems now, for the first time in a while, you are saying what is flying through your mind. So if I get mad, just remind me this is more than you have told anyone. Summer, save my long lost love. Bring her running back to me. This winter tried to take my life but I’m still here, so I am going and I’ll be gone for a while. You ask me if your eyes have turned green, and it sure seems as though they’re answering the leaves. Where you were when the trees were still asleep, I wish I knew, but I can’t break these mysteries. Summer, save my long lost love. Bring her running back to me. This winter tried to take my life but I’m still here, so I am going and I’ll be gone for a while.
Track Name: Your Love Is Strange
Your love is strange, because it’s so easy to be without me in this confusion. It took you a week to get the courage to be without me; I’m just confusion. What is this emotion love? Every night that you ignore me I go without you in the illusion the morning will come and you won’t be gone, I won’t be without you. It’s just an illusion. What is this emotion love? What is this emotion ‘love’? What is this emotion, love? What is this emotion love?
