Track Name: You
Remember all the darkness
You couldn’t see me move
Remember all the things I said I’d like to do to you
Remember all the driving
We talked about our days
We never had a clue at all that everything would change
I always thought I had control
I never thought I’d lose it all
Then I found you
I moved out of the city
I moved into your house
I never thought I’d like it where the lights seem to go out
There are times I almost ruined it
I blamed it on the past
Why would someone with a messy heart deserve a love that lasts?
I always thought I had control
I never thought I’d lose it all
Then I found you
And I have never predicted
And you have never resisted
Remember all the darkness
You couldn’t see me move
Remember all the things I said I’d like to do to you
I never thought we’d make it
Maybe we never will
But I’ll never trade a second that I’ve lived living with you
Track Name: Monocacy
I’m sick of playing around
My body’s aching
I’ve got my feet on the ground
But my head is spacin’
Why can’t I find someone
Who is right for me?
In my mind you’re the one
Guess I’ll wait and see
I never thought I’d live to see you knocking on my front door
Told you to fix yourself but you’ve come back for more
Changed all the locks on the house
Blocked all your numbers
Try my best to forget you
But I still remember
Why can’t I find someone
Who is right for me?
In my mind you’re the one
Guess I’ll wait and see
I never thought I’d live to see you knocking on my front door
Told you to fix yourself but you’ve come back for more
Yeah, think about it, but don’t you dare waste any of my time
Yeah, think about it, but don’t you dare break this heart of mine
Track Name: Lewlyweds
We moved in winter to save up a little change
Then we got married and my name stayed the same
We lived upstairs in a closet space
You lived downstairs
You went to bed, we went to work
And when you woke up, you'd smoke your cigarettes
Breathing your bad choice as we lay our heads
This is not the way that we imagined
The way we thought it'd go
We weren't ready to leave,
We didn't wanna go
And when we go to sleep, we're not alone in our sheets
You've added more to the bad air that we breathe
I wouldn’t wish this on my worst enemy
This is not the way that we imagined
The way we thought it'd go
We weren't ready to leave,
We didn't wanna go
Thanks to you we’re gonna burn this place down,
Bury our memories underneath the ground
Let's make a toast to the newlyweds
To the newlyweds who can't sleep in their beds
To the newlyweds who can't sleep in their beds
You took it away from me
Track Name: Stay
Park the car around the block
I walk into the dark
If I avoid the eyes of everyone I see, nobody knows it’s me
I never played with fire, I didn’t know it’d hurt
You said you wouldn’t burn
You loved me so much, so much I tore you apart
and I broke my own heart
You can’t build on the dead but we tried anyway
when no one was around
Dreamt of a better life while I slept soundly in two different beds
I never played with fire, I didn’t know it’d hurt
You said you wouldn’t burn
You loved me so much, so much i tore you apart
and I broke my own heart
I know I said I would stay
But I meant everything
I know I said I would stay
I wasn’t lying when I said that I loved you
I wasn’t lying when I said that we should move
I know I said I would stay
But I meant everything
I know I said I would stay
Track Name: Doreen
I was barely twenty two
When I started working with you
Serving tables in the city, both still young inside
Drinking in the dark we waited for the light
Snow was falling when you said you could die today
It broke my heart
You navigate the sky at night
Head to school right after your flight
I can’t keep track of your next move
When there’s so much that you want to prove
Snow was falling when you said you could die today
It broke my heart
You said you had it pretty good but the thought it tore me right apart
Let’s make a promise that we’ll quit our jobs
Find a way to do all the things that we want
Let’s make a promise that we intend to keep
You and me
Doreen
Pinky swear, I won’t tell your secrets
Track Name: Paycheck
Give me a sign that you know I’m here
Give me a sign
We work the same days and hours
We work the same
So let’s just stop pretending we have nothing in common
I’m sick of our excuses so it’s time we drop them
We’re working paycheck to paycheck
I know that it’s hard sometimes
I know it’s hard sometimes, I know it’s hard sometimes
I have a place that I call my home, I have a place
I know a face that i call my mom, I know a face
She wanted to be a singer, she wanted to
Those that call themselves believers cut her in two
So let’s just stop pretending we have nothing in common
I’m sick of our excuses so it’s time we drop them
We’re working paycheck to paycheck
I know that it’s hard sometimes
I know it’s hard sometimes, I know it’s hard sometimes
Track Name: Too Much
I was just a kid
When my life turned upside down
All those things I hid
Are coming right back around
Can I get a minute
A little minute of your time
Trying to hold on tightly
To the storm inside my mind
Your baby's growing up
But I'm still yours
I feel you've given up
And you shut all the doors
Is it too much for you to be around for me?
Pick up the phone
I wanna have a conversation but nobody's ever home
I've never felt so alone
If I don't have you I think my heart might explode
Your baby's growing up
But I'm still yours
I feel you've given up
And you shut all the doors
Is it too much for you to be around for me?
Track Name: Storytellers
Take me back to my blissful youth
Time didn’t matter, we made up the rules
We looked each other in the eyes
Passed notes in the hallway, spent afternoons underneath the sky
Oh it was perfect
It used to be
Oh it was perfect
There’s a place in the back of my mind
Where everyone’s still around
We can go whenever you want
Where everything lost is found
I can feel the day that you died
We fell on the floor and felt nothing inside
I can hear gunshots in my head
You got away from the one who wanted you left for dead
Oh my god
It used to be
Oh my god
There’s a place in the back of my mind
Where everyone’s still around
We can go whenever you want
Where everything lost is found
We can’t erase it, we can’t erase it
Storytelling ’til the end of time
I’ll hold on tightly to your words
If you hold tight to mine
We’ll think of something
Track Name: Break
And in the end it’s two of us
It was always two of us
Put your hand inside of mine
We fell in love at the right time
And it’s the kind of love that will make you break
But if it’s worth enough it’s a chance you take
And a chance to try is a chance to know
Take a look inside feel your heartbeat grow
Make a move or none at all
Wasted time, we let it fall
Let the fear get hold of me
Let the feeling set it free
Do I break you,
Break you in two?
Do I break you,
Break you into?
