Track Name: Don't Go Falling Asleep
You'll always have more plans than memories
now that the summer breeze cuts through the cemetery trees.
And I'm falling asleep
You're gonna hate me
All the nights,
all the streets,
lead to the hospital sheets.

Did you really wanna be with me?
I can't believe you wanted to be with me

And I'm falling asleep now
I'm falling asleep now
I'm falling asleep now
I'm barely falling asleep now.

All those friends now they're leaving you
They laughed at all the silly things you wanted to do
I'll move away down to the west coast
I'll leave today.
I'll be that cliche

Did you really wanna be with me?
I can't believe you wanted to be with me

I'm falling asleep now
I'm falling asleep now
I'm falling asleep now
I'm barely falling asleep now.

Did you really wanna be with me?
I can't believe you wanted to be with me.

And I'm falling asleep now
I'm falling asleep now
I'm falling asleep now
I'm falling asleep now.
Track Name: Please, Please
Somewhere beyond the horizon's where you'd like me to be
But we're still year another year
Someday we'll finally be free

Between the bars you'll watch the stars and tell him about how you still love me.
And you can tell by your eyes that you've already betrayed me.

Please, please don't take her from me.
She'll come around, she's always waited for me.
Please, please, don't take her from me.
I always fall into the folds of her sheets.

Just don't confused my love and my feelings for you
It's not romance but circumstance but surely I adore.
Let's clear the air,
My four-foot stare is likely to betray you
I've seen it all.
I've been around
and I get lonely too.

Please, please don't take her from me.
She'll come around, she's always waited for me.
Please, please, don't take her from me.
I always fall into the folds of her sheets.

Please, please don't
Please, please don't
Please, please don't
Please, please don't.

Please, please don't take her from me.
She'll come around, she's always waited for me.
Please, please, don't take her from me.
I always fall into the folds of her sheets.

Please, please don't
Please, please don't
Please, please don't
Please, please don't.
Track Name: The World Tonight (Clean)
Now that you've got money, darling,
you feel the same.
You'll find unhappiness between
MLK and Main.

Sleeping in your shoes,
you stumbled home
and now you're all alone.

You're the drunken baby doll,
you're acting like you're fully grown.

That's the world tonight
Yeah, that's the world.

I'd trade you all my friends and lovers
to make it like before
Yeah, all those friends and lovers
Who'd sooner show you the door.

Screaming out your blues,
Forgive the booze,
and all the "f*** you's"

You're the teenage drama-queen
Who's 23 and on her knees

That's the world tonight
Yeah that's the world.
Track Name: Jamie
Jamie, never thought I would sing to you
play the songs that you wanted me to
Never thought I'd make you cry.

Jamie, never said what I wanted to
Never said what I needed to
You never let me apologize.

You and I we surely changed,
Sometimes it's hard to get it right
But I'm strong enough without you, darling,
Everything will be alright.

Jamie, tell me, would I lie to you?

Jamie, never thought I'd move in with you
Never thought I could be your news
You hung me out to dry

Jamie, never thought I would sing to you
Play the song that you wanted me to
I simply walked away

Bad is the easiest luck,
Sometimes it's hard to get it
and I'm strong enough without you,
Everything will be alright.

Now, tell me, yeah, Jamie, tell me, would I lie to you?

Jamie, tell me, would I lie to you?
Track Name: Hollywood Hills
You called me first and that's all I remember
Besides the usual things,
the "heys" and "how's it goings?"

Passing someone in the mall,
"Hey what happened?"
"Samantha likes her pills and the Hollywood Hills."

and the Hollywood Hills

Tell me the truth, is it me or is it you?
I've done all I can I still go crawling back to you.
Crawling back to you.

You called me first and that's all I remember
Besides, of course, the usual things that never really seem to matter
Like the color of your hair
Or the depth of your stare.
Samantha and her pills.
And the Hollywood Hills.

Tell me the truth, is it me or is it you?
I've done all I can I still go crawling back to you.
Crawling back to you.
Track Name: Marry Him
I woke up on the sunny side of lonlinest
Now I'm alone but lately I've been alright
And I can safely say that you're no longer a problem these days.
Though you still linger just like you always did.

Go ahead and marry him.

I left you when that's what you said you wanted
The years miles don't seem so far right now.
Falling in love all over again just to be your friend
If given the chance of course I'd do it again

Go ahead and marry him.
Just go ahead.
Track Name: The Radio (Clean)
I wake up weird
Stuck in the middle of the night
I've got a brand new song to keep me,
warm tonight.

I'm falling asleep,
against the window pane.
It's been a long time coming now,
It's been a long ride home.

Don't see you lately
weep and moan.

Singing "I love you" on the radio.

I'll see you again
In a month or two
I just don't know what to do
Just what do I do?

I come too soon
You're still in your dress
There's another man in my bed
and I f***ing mess.

Singing "I love you" on the radio.
Track Name: The Middle Coast (Clean)
Mary left me the house and three kids,
Took her life, yeah, and everything with it.
You move to the west coast,
It's the same as the east coast.
Running around, yeah, following your ghost.

Tell me what you want and, baby, if it's good,
I'll give you all the things that I know I should.
I miss you most in the morning.
Come this time next year, baby, I'm still mourning.

I give you my life
and I was happy with it.
You spend six years, yeah,
Find you don't know s***.

I know deep down, I was a good man
I know, I know, I know, I know I was the best man

Tell me what you want and, baby, if it's good,
I'll give you all the things that I know I should.
I miss you most in the morning.
Come this time next year, baby, I'm still mourning.
Track Name: Thirteen
So many things to show to you
Years' worth of work
and tapes full of songs
And a head full of memories

Conversations of loneliness
and the feeling of being uncomfortable
I wonder what my life might have been

Don't be scared
There's no answer
So how are you?
There's no answer.
There's no answer.

Hoping you're sober and right
while watching Thirteen
Yeah, we were that age.
Yeah that old hollywood cliche.

Everything I said was wrong
Everything you said was right
Is that what you thought love was for?

Don't be scared
There's no answer
So how are you?
There's no answer.

There's no answer.
Track Name: An Ordinary Life
I remember, I remember everything
Watching movies, waiting on the rain.
and I plans for a mediocre life… good ones too
They disappeared the day that I met you

An ordinary life.

Meet me in the middle at a barbecue
This paint by numbers life is coming true
Somedays I hate everything you do.
Can you believe I'm still in love with you?

An ordinary life.

Yeah I'm still in love with you.
