Track Name: Same To You
If I say another word it’ll be my last
I can tell by the color of your face you’re mad
I’ll have to take a few so I don’t talk back
Well it’s gonna be one of those days

Where if it’s the same to you that I’m gone
If it’s the same to you I won’t stay long
But I can’t move on when I’m five steps back
And I guess we’re going out again
By Texas I know I’ll be ready to crack
That’s where I almost killed you but honey give me one
more chance

Then if it’s the same to you that I’m gone
If it’s the same to you I don’t stay long
If it’s the same to you that I’m gone
If it’s the same to you I won’t stay

Well is there nothing I could do to make you look at me
that way again?
I’m not gonna fall in love with you man but if that’s
really it
Could you just wave goodbye?

If it’s the same to you that I’m gone
If it’s the same to you I don’t stay long
If it’s the same to you that I’m gone
If it’s the same to you I don’t stay, then I wanna stay…
Track Name: Longer
Tired of me hanging around looking like I just lost a friend
Well if I did you don’t know who, he goes to another school

Around 11 am burned the breakfast again
Well I don’t know what I was doing, something I just
saw on TV

It’s true
I need to get a clue
But give me just a little bit longer to get over you

Sitting in the dark talking about my plans
To anyone who can hear over this shitty Indianapolis band
Well maybe I should move away, cuz I don’t know why
I stay
When it’s more than I can sustain, I want to wake up
every day with you
But I need to get a clue, it’s true
But give me just a little bit longer to get over you
Track Name: More Than Ever
What’s it gonna take for me to say
It’s hard enough to find someone anyway
And if I stay until the end I guess I’ll know what
might’ve been
It’s harder to take every day

And I don’t like to do much anymore
Food has lost the taste you had before
More than ever

I don’t want to listen to them talk
Darling don’t you want to come and take a walk
But if self-control is what you want I’d have to break all
of my fingers off
Because it’s harder to take every day

And the feelings that I should’ve just ignored
Now they’re just a step across the floor
Where your mistress is pounding harder on the door
But I guess you don’t want to see her anymore
No more than ever
Track Name: Heaven
Here comes a beard on a cloud
Something to say to the crowd
He built a wall in between us
“Knock it off”

Here comes a guy
Wearing no shoes
Lord you can’t even die with nothing to lose
And now he’s mad about a fit I threw

When I met you I thought I had found belief
And we could stay together
But paradise is only for the weak man no one goes to
heaven

Well we’re at the mercy
Of men’s fever dreams
Every night he doesn’t visit me
It doesn’t ever speak to she’s
“I’m coming down there”

And I thought it would be ok, but everything just happens
Everything is an accident and no one goes to heaven

When I see you at the gate, oh God it’s been forever
But like a stranger you just turn away cuz no one goes
to Heaven
Track Name: Out On Love
How could love like this exist
Feels more perfect with every kiss
Now you’re walking away I don’t want to miss
Out on love

How could someone like you be real
I don’t know what heaven feels like
But if I could get there then I hope you will too

And if I could write to you then all I would say
is I needed you almost every day
I tried but I could not find the words to say
I needed time

How could love like this exist
Feels more perfect with every kiss
Now I’m walking away I guess I don’t understand
Why someone like you would be cruel
I don’t know what the truth is but
You give me every reason to fall out of everlasting arms

And if I could write to you then all I would say
Is I miss you more every day
I tried but I could n
Track Name: Midwestern Guys
These January nights really make me hate my life
And I wanna get into a fight
But you already said you’re not gonna fall for that again
this time

You wanna paint your masterpiece
But “Inspiration really doesn’t always come all that easy”
I guess that’s why you’re always mad at me
You wanna lock me in the kennel and then leave for
Myrtle Beach at 5

Midwestern guys

And after it gets dark you want to go look at the stars,
Aw, you sure know the way to my heart honey
You wanna make love, not fuck, in Schiller Park
That’s how romantic you are, yeah.

And tell me all about ’83
It was a long time ago, you can sure say that again to me
All the lives lost to Natty Light in a tree
You played Pyromania until she got down on her knees
between your thighs
Oh you midwestern guys . . .
Track Name: Bilbao
You take a walk I’d rather be lonely than ashamed
Of all the girls who think they know your name
Us dirty Italians are all the same
No one but me knows you could never be replaced

Marry me, there’s nowhere in the world that I would
rather be

You don’t even look up when the waves get ten feet tall
You’re so disinterested trying to make a call
Well I know who I am and I’ll be like that again
If you only knew me now God if I knew you then

Marry me there’s nowhere in the world that I would
rather be

You say goodnight
Is gonna hurt like hell
If you don’t say goodnight
Then I guess it’s just as well that you don’t believe the
way I feel
If you don’t believe the way I feel
Bury me, there’s nowhere in the world I would rather be

Don’t wanna be lonely
Track Name: European
There’s a light on in your attic I can see it
And it flashes for a dirty voyeur like me
There’s a heartbeat on the air tonight I hear it
Whispering beat beat beat
What’s it gonna take for you to let me inside?
I’m standing on the lawn and the grass is on fire

And when I kissed you on the lips I was being European
honey come on
I just wanna right what’s been feeling so wrong
If you don’t love me I can hide my feelings
I just wanna get what I haven’t had in so long

Tell you secrets in an alley in New Orleans
let you read my palm right through your jeans
Watch your lips move til I don’t know what the words mean
Ain’t there some things you feel like you can only say to me

Now what’s it gonna take for you to not be mad
Look me in the eye and tell me that you’re still upset
About when I kissed you on the lips I was being European
honey
Come on, I wanna grab before the moment’s gone

You can’t kick me out while I’m still reeling
And I just wanna give you what you haven’t had in so long

I’ll take you places where they kiss just to say hi to ya
And break your heart open just like a shell
Cuz right now I’m so afraid of tomorrow
There’s things I don’t wanna do with anyone else

Like when I kissed you on the lips I was being European
Honey come on I thought I was broken then you turned
me on
If you don’t want me now I guess you’ll beat it
I just wanna give you what you haven’t had in so long
Track Name: Clumps
People tell me I could be addicted to romance
Never getting over the excitement of a glance in two eyes
Every other time I like to think I’m right
Hope that I affected you and tore you up inside
Must be why you turn away and never ask me why
I cry and never sleep at night
I need you on my side just not tonight

All at once you say
“It was fun but it must not be real because now you’re done”
But so what if that’s all it was?
Love turns into lust and milk turns into clumps
So you don’t have to tell me everything I want to hear
It only makes it harder for me every time my dear to say
Bye
“Everybody dies, I’ll see you on the other side”
Oh my God, you made me feel alive.
Track Name: Real
I’m watching TV and I know I shouldn’t be
Because it doesn’t compare to walking down your street

Hanging off a live wire, I can’t believe you don’t see me
And I know just how she feels
Cuz I know just what you do
Well, I know just how it feels
When you make it seem real

Now I’m in my room but I want to jump off the roof
I’m just waiting for a boy who’s gonna beg me not to do it
Oh, here he comes now, man

He’s gonna take my shaky hand, well I know he’s no
Peter Pan

But I really need him to be now
Cuz I know just how she feels
I know just what you do
Well I know just how it feels
When you make it seem real

Nothing will change, at least not as far as I can see
When you hold my hand you don’t always have to wrench
it out of me
You could just hold my hand and if you wanna run away
with me we can do that

Cuz I know just how it’d feel, man
I know exactly what I want to do
I know just how I want to feel and every time, God, you
made it so real
