Track Name: Another Tonight
I guess we were not sure
what we were in for
when we stepped out the door
and ended the day.
You found us a place
we ended the chase
moonlight on your face
I kissed it away.
And in that moment we were dangerous,
hearts on fire, lips that touch
totally alive.
We found a refuge in each others arms
safe from harm until you left and desire arrived.

I don't want to be yours
if you don't want to be mine.
I can't afford to play games
because I'll lose my mind.
I don't want to be wrong
when it's wrong to be right.
I want another first kiss
I want another tonight.

I thought you would crack first.
Sometimes I'm the worst.
I'm so unrehearsed,
it's been such a long time
since I felt the weight.
I love it and hate
not knowing our state
I think I'm
going crazy like I did when I was younger
all the song I sung were
about my heart.
Now that I am older I've learned a great deal
but I won't tell you I feel
lost when we're apart.

I don't want to be yours
if you don't want to be mine.
I can't afford to play games
because I'll lose my mind.
I don't want to be wrong
when it's wrong to be right.
I want another first kiss
I want another tonight.

This could be the last time.
Let me know because you're my favorite past time
and if you don't think that we should get involved
then I'll revolve around someone new
and pretend I haven't already fallen for you.

I want to be yours if you want to be mine
i'll play a couple of games if it'll change your mind
I don't want to be wrong when it's wrong to be right
I want another first kiss, want to be with you tonight.

I don't want to be yours
if you don't want to be mine
how can I change your mind?
I don't want to be wrong
when it's wrong to be right
I want another first kiss
I want another tonight.
Track Name: Out Of My Mind
I met you on a Monday night.
You opened for my friend alright.
I thought we'd get you over with
I'm not over it, I'm not sober yet.
With your intoxicating eyes.
A voice that makes the Summer cry.
You were just the opener
Now I'm hoping your
heart feels mine.

Yeah I can't get you out of my head.
Yeah yeah and I wish you were mine.
I can't I can't believe that you're out of sight
and I'm out of my mind.

I talked to you backstage.
I wanted to engage.
You're married to the road.
I'm living in your show.
Why do you have to go?
You signed your CD.
and gave it back to me.
It's fourteen slices of your soul
taking such a toll
on my heart since you drove away.

Yeah I can't get you out of my head.
Yeah yeah and I wish you were mine.
I can't I can't believe that you're out of sight
and I'm out of my mind.

You're a ghost, you won't stop haunting me.
Driving to the coast and I hope you're wanting me.
All I can do now is drop you a line
with a subject that reads
I'm out of my mind.

Do I have to be famous to be your friend?
Do I have to be shameless to contend?
What will I do if my note fails?
I just want to find you and ride on your coattails.

Yeah I can't get you out of my head.
Yeah yeah and I wish you were mine.
I can't I can't believe that you're out of sight
and I'm out of my mind.
Track Name: Take Me Out
Take me out
I need something to forget about.
The voices in my head are filled with doubt.
And we'll lose them when you take me out. Yeah.

Some are content inside a prison.
Some people like to sit and stare.
I want to make you a decision
to leave here and get there.
We don't have to be the best ones
or smile or get good grades.
Or make lots of money or be twice as funny
or look good or get laid.

Just take me out.
I need something to forget about.
The voices in my head are filled with doubt.
And we'll lose them when you take me out. Yeah.

Some people never leave their hometown.
Some people like to stay inside.
Some people never put their phone down
or feel alive.
I'm not passing any judgement.
I just need to get out of this room.
So bring a can of red paint
before I faint so you better get here soon.

and take me out
I need something to forget about.
The voices in my head are filled with doubt.
And we'll lose them when you take me out. Yeah.

Every now and then the world puts all of it's weight on me.
I get lost inside my head instead of breaking free.
I need to end this rut and cut a rug or two.
We could tear it up so take me with you.

Take me out
I need something to forget about.
The voices in my head are filled with doubt.
And we'll lose them when you take me out. Yeah.
Track Name: Sweet Nothing
I found desire.
I lost my meant to be.
I lost my chance to be the reflection in your eyes tonight.
I should have kissed you
and made a memory.
She's just remembering that nothing even happened tonight.
Yeah.

I found a moment
but I left it at your place.
I'm thinking of your face and why your bed doesn't like me yet.
And now there's freedom.
You'll find another boy.
So tell me Illinois, why's nothing so hard to forget.
Yeah.
I can't forget you.

I should've kissed you when I had the chance to.
I should've whispered in your ear.
But all of my sweet nothings won't add up to nothing I can't believe it.
I'm gonna leave with sweet nothing, yeah.

Is he funny?
Does he make you laugh?
And on my behalf does he kiss you when the time is right?
I just can't take it.
I want to take you out.
And just forget about
how nothing even happened tonight.
Yeah.

I should've kissed you when I had the chance to.
I should've whispered in your ear.
But all of my sweet nothings won't add up to nothing I can't believe it.
I'm gonna leave with sweet nothing, yeah.

I loved her first, I saw her first.
And now I'm dreaming in reverse.
How could I let her get away?
And all because I thought I had nothing to say.
It's nothing.

I should've kissed you when I had the chance to.
I should've whispered in your ear.
But all of my sweet nothings won't add up to nothing I can't believe it.
I'm gonna leave with sweet nothing, yeah.
Track Name: I Want You (To Notice Me)
I thought that I'd write you
and tell you I like you
the way you are.
I bet that you'll notice
that I've hardly shown this
side off so far.
So here it is, the rest of me.
I'd be remiss if you can't see.

I want you to notice me.
I want you to notice me.

I hardly see you
but when I see you
I back down.
I always miss you
it's stupid I miss you most
when I'm out of town.
So here it is, the rest of me.
I'd be remiss if you can't see.

I want you to notice me.
I want you to notice me.
Track Name: Smile
What did you say when you hung up the phone
about me to your friend I got to know
cuz I can go for that.
When you hung up on me my hands would sweat
like a cold turkey in a cigarette
well I can't go for that.

So tell me why every time that we hang around
I'm dizzy for a while.
I don't know why but each time that we hang around
I want to see you smile.

I want to see you smile.
Just smile.
I want to see you smile.

We both agree there's something wrong with you
maybe that's why I get along with you
Well I can go for that.
It seems to me we're never serious.
It seems to be a kind of fear for us
and I can't go for that.

So tell me why every time that we hang around
I'm dizzy for a while.
I don't know why but each time that we hang around
I want to see you smile.

I want to see you smile.
Just smile.
I want to see you smile.

I know you're probably very busy and I'd hate to get you stressin'
But you have got me very dizzy and you always keep me guessin'
I still smile.

I want to see you smile.
Just smile.
I want to see you smile.
Just smile.
Track Name: I'm Sorry
Even when I love and leave you
hurt myself and then retrieve you
you still believe in me.
Marie, Marie, I'm Sorry.
Track Name: Fearless
I did the math.
There is something going on between us.
I had to laugh.
It doesn't add up 'til you see us.
Something feels right when going digital to physical.
Sitting on the edge and every move we make is pivotal.
What if we fall?
It doesn't bother her at all.

But I'm scared now
because of the statistics.
Logic in broken hearts.
She's not scared, no
I swear I saw it in her eyes.

She'll be here soon.
We are gonna write our own equation.
All afternoon
listening to our new private station.
Something's going on that I don't think science has ever seen.
Love it in her car instead of trapped in a computer screen.
What if we fell?
What if I never tell

that I'm scared now
because of the statistics.
Logic in broken hearts.
She's not scared, no
I swear I saw it in her eyes.

She's so fearless.
She's so fearless.

You don't care
but you care about me so I feel safe.
You're jumping in
ready to swim
I want to feel that way.

But I'm scared now
because of the statistics.
Logic in broken hearts.
She's not scared, no
I swear I saw it in her eyes.
She's not scared no
What about the logistics?
Logic in broken hearts.
She's not scared, no
I swear I saw it in her eyes.

She's so fearless.
She's so fearless.
Track Name: Circling, Circling
I'm washin away
All the spit that's on my feet.
These struggling days
are just reruns on repeat.
No callbacks.
No fallbacks.
I'm waiting to wait in line.
So keep your plastic,
save your energy.
I'm not gonna give you any more of mine.

Somebody snubbed me.
I let somebody down.
And it goes on just circling, circling.
Somebody loved me
until I let them drown.
And it goes on just circling, circling.

I get a call and I let it ring.
As If I'm waiting on a better thing.
You say you need me and I turn away.
I'd rather watch my bridges burn away.
I'm busy, so miss me.
I don't have time to make time for you.
Remind me later, what you're fighting for.
I'm for me, no I am not for you.

Somebody snubbed me.
I let somebody down.
And it goes on just circling, circling.
Somebody loved me
until I let them drown.
And it goes on just circling, circling.

Where will it stop?
When will it end?
Who will decide to deny these circling
careless mistakes
they're finding their way.
Will you live what you love or just give what you hate?

Somebody snubbed me.
I let somebody down.
And it goes on just circling, circling.
Somebody loved me
until I let them drown.
And it goes on just circling, circling.
Track Name: Maladies
I haven't known you long.
But I know something's wrong.
I think that you're too strong
to let him hold you back.
Well I'm no doctor
but I can surely see
that he is ailing you
failing to let you be.
I drive you both around.
You're living in my rear view mirror.
Hardly had to dig and I found
we're closer than we appear.
I speak a language,
you don't understand it.
There's no need to panic
you said it was
so romantic.

I want to run away
Let's leave it right now.
Chase the back of your legs.
We'll find it somehow.
I will save her life.

So leave him and I'll leave her
and we'll both break this fever.
Get the monkeys off our back,
save ourselves from the attack.
Just you and me and mango juice
under a tree with lots of fruit.
Living in moments that never end.
The warmth, the glowing days we'll spend are
so romantic.

I want to run away
Let's leave it right now.
Chase the back of your legs.
We'll find it somehow.
I will save her life.

I want to stomp on all your maladies.
I want to stop all the fatalities.
Tell me if it hurts.
Let me kiss it first.
I will save her life.
Track Name: Run Around
I thought a lot about my options.
I thought about what everyone would say.
A lady in a purse is yelling stop them
I woke up and you're still too young for me.
Well I can't help thinking 'bout.
I can't help but thinking of you
yeah I can't help thinking 'bout
I can't help but thinking of you.

You're my only real secret.
You're the only one who knows the truth.
You understand the way I see it.
They'll start a war if I keep loving you.
But I can't help thinking 'bout
I can't help but thinking of you
yeah I can't help thinking 'bout.
I can't help but thinking of you.

You love me back.
You're sure of that.
You ride with me.
Sunset one team.

Run around, run around, run around
and we won't get caught.
Run around, run around, run around
and we won't get shot.

If we run out of options
would you jump off the cliff with me?
We'll forget all our problems.
Explode into a symphony
Well I can't help thinking 'bout
I can't help but thinking of you
yeah I can't help thinking 'bout
I can't help but thinking of you.

You love me back.
You're sure of that.
You ride with me.
Sunset one team.

Run around, run around, run around
and we won't get caught.
Run around, run around, run around
and we won't get shot.
Track Name: Keep Me Young
We start to jam downstairs with the cinder block crumbs.
A beat up organ, and trashy drums.
It's alright.
The night has just begun.
Some of us don't play too well
but the party upstairs can't really tell.
It's alright
to try when you are young.
I pull her aside to talk about youth on the Craig's List couch
I was thirsty for truth, and the sight
of her was overflowing.
She says should we get back and it isn't a question
I pick up on that, I lost
but I smile and keep on going.
We keep on going.

(without you)
I
(without you)
try
not to think of who I'll be
(without you)
I
(without you)
might
never feel the same carefree.
(without you)
When
(without you)
we
have to move on and be done
(without you)
who will keep me young?

Back on the floor, high life in my hand
spinnin' everything from Voodoo to the E Street Band.
The goofiest guys tell the stupidest jokes
But they kill me the hardest and love me the most
I kissed a girl in my buddies best room.
He walked in on us and when he left we resumed.
This house taught me all the tricks up my sleeve.
I'm not sorry about what I did on New Year's Eve.

(without you)
I
(without you)
try
not to think of who I'll be
(without you)
I
(without you)
might
never feel the same carefree.
(without you)
When
(without you)
we
have to move on and be done
(without you)
who will keep me young?

Austin's gonna study abroad.
Cory's flirting with LA.
Leah started to cry when we said goodbye.
Pretty soon they'll be leasing this place.
Pretty soon we'll be leaving this place.

(without you)
I
(without you)
try
not to think of who I'll be
(without you)
I
(without you)
might
never feel the same carefree.
(without you)
When
(without you)
we
have to move on and be done
(without you)
who will keep me young?
Track Name: Marian
I'm sitting here
with all your friends.
Do I deserve you?
It all depends.
I do my best to impress at my debut.
They told me
that I got shy.
I didn't say
the reason why.
I'd only spill the way I feel for you to you.

Hearts will break
and tears will fall
but I'll be there
throughout it all.
I love you Marian.

My stomachs full
of butterflies
I wonder if
you empathize.
You move with grace and I embrace you and the ride.
I will mess up
I always do
but I won't make a mess of you.
All of my flaws and my faux pas
will step aside.
Making way for us to collide.

Hearts will break
and tears will fall
but I'll be there
throughout it all.
I love you Marian.
