Track Name: Lovers
Lovers grow apart
I see the way it starts
This isn't news but i'll tell you my blues
Because I love you
Not the way you love me

Most people can't stand the thought
Of losing all they've got
but theres nothing i can do
when all I've got is you and you don't want me
not the way that i want you

I wouldn't say that if you won't have me i'll die
but i also wouldn't say that i could stay alive

Ive never met a man with a better slight of hand
and though I've been your fool i think ill leave you
because you don't love me
not the way I love you
Track Name: Bad Contact
You're actin out
on your own time
Don't you blame everyone
What does that mean
What a stupid thing
For me to up and run

The nyquil gives me
Bad dreams where you
Shave your head clean
I always try to run
but My feet just sink
All day i'm stuck in that scene

Sometimes you talk on
The things you forgot
Or the ways that i'm changing
Or the men that you're not

I only dream when i'm awake
Don't get no sleep these days
No it's nothing that you said
It's okay you leave me disappointed

I mistook what you had to offer babe
I mistook you for my man
You think you thought i can

The light in the basement
By the old man
Is flickering like the sun
But you've got to go down
To wash your shirts
Just hope you're not the one

I only dream when i'm awake
Don't get no sleep these days
No it's nothing that you said
It's okay you leave me disappointed

I mistook what you had to offer babe
I mistook you for my man
You think you thought i can
Track Name: G's Van
Her ex-boyfriend let her
Borrow his van for the night
But 80 down the highway
the breaks aren’t doin alright

No wonder she's got no one
Crashing straight into
The red striped handgun

She pulls at the door
in her hand
No one looks twice
This is not what she planned
Till a guy in the corner
Points his finger
Now they can't ignore her
Drop dead

There's a place where my
heart and my chest don't meet
Thats where you stuck
the rest of me

You can outrun me
At a mile an hour
You can only outdrink me
if you're pushin up flowers

Her collar isn't buttoned
She's got none at all
In her light pink dress
Which won't fit through the door

Thank god his brother
With a cardboard cutout
Van lends her a hand
And walks her out in plain sight

She pulls at the door
in her hand
No one looks twice
This is not what she planned
No one blinks an eye
As they wave
from the window
No one asks why
Track Name: Get You Out
Why can't Iturn down a dare
why am i eating your cigarette
It's not fair to say you care
then leave me there
oh its not fair

The sunset at the baseball game
when you were too high to speak
I remember spending 15 dollars
on those nosebleed seats

I hope you'll get the picture that i sent of us and all the boys
I hate to say it but i hope you'll be alone in detroit
Please get out please get out please get out of my head
please get back please get back please get back in my bed.

I act like Im wild
but I'm racked with regret
everytime i say something that i shouldn't have said
its not fair to say you care
and then you leave me there
oh its not fair

The sunset at the baseball game
when you were too high to speak
I remember spending 15 dollars
on those nosebleed seats
Track Name: Wait For Me
You were so good to me
Why won’t you wait for me
I’ll never love you more
Stand me up
Show me the door

I’ll open up my head for you
The phone’s off the hook
I’ve got something beautiful
I need you to look

Even though you cry so much
You couldn’t work up a tear for losing me
Oh how I miss your touch
How you’re all i wanna see

Now the tears aren’t coming
Like I thought to my eyes
But it’s a long drive home
And were saying goodbyes

I hate to ask advice
For when you’re not near
I’m scared they’ll tell me things
I don’t want to hear

The days were hard and lonely
The lines in the road were clear
At night my reflection is blurry
From the running of my tears

I can’t go back there
I won’t make it out
It’s a lot of drowning feeling
I can’t talk about
Track Name: Worked Up
My roommates are getting letters
From the penitentiary
And im askin
What you can do for me

Were all fakin service dogs
We found on the internet
Just to take em to bars
Why don't they like it yet?

You're emotionally stunted
I thought you'd make me feel wanted
She warned me your libido
What the hell would she know
You're speakin in tongues
and i'm filling my lungs
For the walk past the graveyard
I'm not ready to play god

I know I get worked up sometimes
but It’ll be different next time
I know I get worked up sometimes
But it will be different, i lied

Though you've got no heart
you do what no man’s done before
Of course you're just a rebound
But your bed is better than the floor
