Track Name: Why Can't We Just Disappear?
my mind is it's own place and time
and I find the more I try
to live my life the way I want
I just get caught up in the fight
i'm up all night i'm dreaming
of a better life
but all the talk is still just talk
and we're too cheap
to pay the cost
and all the parties sound like fun
but i still never will show up
let them race to find a cure
for each day that we endure
waiting never wins the war
sleeping never heals our sores
you're the only one I know
there's no reason not to go
somewhere where
our love could grow
I could be your little wife
I've been waiting all my life
and I don't mind
if you break my spine in two
and i don't mind
if you waste your time
reciting lines that help you
speak your mind
and i'm so drunk
that I don't give fuck
if it turns out that you
don't love me too
(but I do love you too)
insert the catheter,
and fill me with joy,
fill me with laughter
Insert the catheter
and fill me with joy,
fill me with laughter.

BACKGROUND RAP:

Maybe I've been here before,
I've seen this room
I've walked this floor
this is not a passing feeling,
this is just a sign I'm healing
this time i know for certain,
you and I are the same person
if i go i go with you,
where you live I'll plant my roots
where you lay I'll make my bed,
you're the dream that's in my head
We can find what they can't see,
a paradise for you and me
we can build a future somehow,
there's nothing left to hold us back now
tired eyes and tired feet,
too upset to fall asleep
nothing that could come our way
could steal the love I feel today
you're the peace I hope to keep.
You're the heart too big to beat
We'll dry your tears up with our heat,
there's no more secrets left to keep
Track Name: Old Haunts
Hanging 'round our old haunts
I've been singing the same old songs
I've been juggling love and a job
and i never seem to have the time
to do what i want
our last summer in California,
I can't really stand the sun anymore, yeah
I'm too tired now to put up a fight
and i sure am happy
but i cry every night
and we haven't spoke in so long
that you won't even notice that I'm gone
yeah and we've been apart for so long
that you won't even notice that I'm gone
when I'm gone.
I've been working 6 days a week
can never find the time
to keep the house neat
I can't sleep without smoking some pot
and my hair still never does what I want
fast driving still makes me nervous
low lighting still makes me do this,
I'm too tired now to put up a fight
and I sure am happy but I cry every night
and we haven't spoke in so long
that you wont even notice that I'm gone
yeah and we've been apart for so long
that you wont even notice that I'm gone,
when I'm gone.
Track Name: Long Distance
If it ain't gonna work,
Then baby it ain't gonna work
You just don't wanna be the one of us
to give up first, so,
let me know, just as soon as you get home
exactly what you want to do
and if I'll ever speak to you again
head-first through a stoplight
and everything's not right
if everything has changed
Romantic believer, you wouldn't leave her
you'd rather let it fade away
We keep at it with all we've got
but if the best of us is over,
then the worst part's all we've got
you keep
insisting you'd miss me
but you don't even kiss me
when I come home every night
We fight over nothing,
there's got to be something
that drives us to these things
The problem ain't you,
it's me
I just do this to myself,
I can't give in an let you love me
and I can't trust
and I don't believe
and if I don't believe in us,
then what's left of us to leave?
Track Name: Your Heart Makes Me Whole, Alex Cole
Alex likes to think a lot
He thinks he'll be a Cosmonaut
And then he'll name a star for me
So he can wish on it for me
He says he'll make a wish for me
That his is all I'll ever be
He says this as he kisses me
He says this as he comforts me
And Alex says,
It's Okay, just let it be
I've got you and you've got me
and that's all we'll ever need
and that's all we need to be

Alex tries to make me smile
He tries to make my life worthwhile
He says that I'm the only thing
that makes him have the urge to sing
He sings to me about to pass the time
He sings to me about ours lives
He tried to write a song for me
He asks me if I'll ever leave
And Alex says,
It's Okay just let it be
I've got you and you've got me
and that's all we'll ever need
and that's all we need to be
It's Okay, just close your eyes
and we'll sleep under the sky
and you'll never have to cry
Because I'll never say Goodbye
And then he says
Alex says,
"I love you."
Track Name: Handsome Stranger
I always saw you as a handsome stranger
never saw the danger
and ignored the difference in age
you say your wife don't understand you
well I do, but I still don't want you
I only wanted to be your friend,
but if it's all pretend
then buddy,
this joke's got to end
You always found me so endearing
never tired of hearing
about my tangled family roots
my knees ain't weak
my palms ain't sweaty
Boy, you keep forgetting
We're both taken already
I know we both got out late,
but it's alright
I can drive myself home tonight
and I had always hoped that
these words would not be spoken
I'll never love you, Okay?
Are you OK?
You always found it so frustrating
I was always dating
and was always out of their league
don't get me wrong
it's not as though I don't like you
tell me what should I do?
I only wanted to be your friend
but if it's all pretend
then Honey, guess this is the end
Our love is a Bilderberg
Our love is a Bilderberg
Our love is a Bilderberg,
Can you tell me if it's real,
because really I ain't sure
Track Name: Good Lovers
I never thought you had it in you
to mess things up the way you have
but now you can't take it back
she's fucked you up
you fucked her back
and now I'm on my hands and knees,
good lovers make great enemies
now I'm on my hands and knees
good lovers make great enemies
you never did think for yourself
they put the words inside your head for you
I wonder why I cared at all
I've torn your pictures off our walls
and now I'm on my hands and knees,
good lovers make great enemies
now I'm on my hands and knees
good lovers make great enemies
now I'm on my hands and knees,
good lovers make great enemies
now I'm on my hands and knees
good lovers make great enemies
now I'm on my hands and knees,
good lovers make great enemies
now I'm on my hands and knees
good lovers make great enemies
Track Name: King of Loneliness
You're the picture of success
changed your hair and changed your dress
a degree in modern art
and a chest of broken heart
lazy days of summer dreams
and friendship's never what it seems
you're the King of Loneliness
and I'm the Princess of Regret
I wasn't strong enough
to wait around to fall in love
you weren't man enough
you took my hand and led me on
the wasted summers of our youth
you told me that it was the truth
You said you loved me in your bed
I said I'd always be your friend
I wasn't good enough to save your soul
to show you love
you weren't strong enough
to break my brittle heart
Track Name: Darling, You're a Vampire
Darling, you're a vampire
jealous of my soul
drain all of the good from me
I've lost all self control
Oh take me in the moonlight
Take me in your arms
Take me to your castle
and break my little heart
Lay me in your coffin
turn your music up
dance with me 'til suppertime
then make the hurting stop
Well, blue eyed little angels
always let me down
I'll settle on this green eyed beast
who always wears a frown
Well maybe I'm a sinner
loving you this way
Jesus will forgive ya
for leading me astray
Well maybe I'm a sinner
loving you this way
Jesus will forgive ya
for leading me astray
Stop my heart from beating
Never Let me Go
Baby if you Love me
It's time to let it show
Track Name: Rebecca
Becky I don't know you no more
but I know you're hurtin'
yellow hair and Jesus
don't make you a better person
differences aside we should have
tried to carry on
you're worth my time
you know that I've
regret it all along
Now that I'm older
I'm filled with regret
I should have told her
forgive and forget
You'll go left and I'll go right
we'll end up on opposite sides
where our lives will grow apart
don't leave me searching in the dark
What's left to Rebel?
What's holding you back?
I thought I knew you
I should know better than that
I have claws and I can bite
but Becky I refuse to fight
you want to live life by yourself
but I think all you need is help
some men are bad
some men are good
some men don't treat you like they should
but Becky keep your head up high
and if you want me
I'll be by your side
Becky I don't know for sure
but I have my suspicions
all the weight you're losing
ain't from distancing the kitchen
the Becky I knew then
would hate the Becky I know now
you always were the cooler one
I always tried too hard
You're so much colder
We were happier then
how can you tell me
we shouldn't be friends
sometimes life works out so strange
sometimes young girls can be so vain
I don't know why but you and me
get filled with animosity
you and I are so alike
we can't admit when we aren't right
jealousy's a nasty beast
it shredded us up
piece by piece
now the girls you hang around
have got with every guy in town
go to clubs and go to shows
snort powder up your perfect nose
there goes our childhoods
your innocence
there goes your wonder
here comes the regret
Rebecca listen,
remember our dreams
remember Paris
remember Me.
Track Name: A Happy Life is Hard to Find
The wedding party came and went
the ceremony was a grand event
No Honeymoon, there's bills to pay
She's 21 and 5 months on her way
she tries to be an optimist
In time God's plan will all make sense
and that's how she explains away
the pregnancy, the choices made
Sister I have tried to talk to you
and understand what you've been going through
I'll love you in the end
I'll still love you in the end
And when she can't sleep at night
She holds old photos to the light
was 21 too young to say
that all the good ones got away
Sister, I have tried to talk to you
and understand what you've been going through
I'll love you in the end
I'll still love you in the end
Quite often a lady is not as hard to please
as she seems
Quite often she'll settle for something
less than the man of her dreams
Sister I have tried to talk to you
and understand what you've
Been going through
I'll love you in the end
I'll still love you in the end
Sister I have tried to talk to you
and understand what you've
Been going through
I'll love you in the end
I'll still love you in the end
Track Name: A Man to Marry
I never thought
that I'd find someone to love me
that I'd find someone who loved me
that I'd find someone to love me
I'd given up looking for someone who loved me
looking for someone to love me
looking for a man to marry
I wasn't strong enough
to wait around to fall in love
He wasn't man enough
He took my hand and led me on
You played guitar in your band
I knew the story
My friend he said you saw me
I've always been your quarry
We spied your Ex
every show we tried to go to
It drove her mad to see you
So happy since she left you
Late night alone in your room you sounded bitter
you threw away her pictoures
you said you'd never miss her
I'd spend each day with you
You became my Best Friend
Sleepovers every weekend
You really were a Godsend
Late afternoon smoking with you by the poolside
affections too hard to hide
those summers were the best times
Night time again in my bed you tried to kiss me
The dark makes things so easy
we never did much sleeping
I realized only you could make me happy
and that you really loved me
we truly were meant to be
I wasn't strong enough
to wait around to fall in love
He wasn't man enough
he took my hand and led me on
to you
to you
to you
to you
Track Name: When We're Done, This Dream Will End
Sometimes I feel
I'm not there
Sometimes I feel
I don't care
Then all my worries just collide
but I sit back I do not mind
close my eyes and count to ten
when I'm done this dream will end
Oh my God it's getting faster
I don't know if I can master
I don't know if I can last long
on this living roller coaster
I can feel my brain is reeling
caught up in this silly feeling
can you tell me if I'm slipping
sanity has lost it's gripping
What the hell is going on?
How can you say nothing's wrong
I don't think that I had better
Oh my Lord, My God, Whatever
Sometimes I think
Something's wrong
Sometimes I think my mind's gone
Oh my God it's getting faster
I don't know if I can master
I don't know if I can last long
on this living roller coaster
All the world is going crazy
I don't know if God can save me
So much sadness that I wonder,
Is it some dark spell I'm under?
If my mind should fall apart,
would I still be in your heart?
World is moving in slow motion
sadness an addictive potion
Why can't life just disappear?
What good is it doing here?
My heart is burdened with such sorrow
I can't see a clear tomorrow
are you getting what I mean?
nothing's really as it seems
I just turn the volume down
madness doesn't make a sound
Can you see me eye to eye?
If you can please come inside
We'll close our eyes and count to ten
when we're done this dream will end
Track Name: Good Things Last Forever
And so it's never
Good things last forever
And it's hardly ever
people stay together
can you take my check?
because I'm a wreck
My Dearest one,
Here's what you've done
It's so important not to cry
'Til you're alone
It's so important to stay proud
'Til you're alone
can you take my check?
because I'm a wreck
My Dearest one
My Dearest one
And it's Nights like This
It's You I Miss
It's Nights like This
It's You I Miss
It's You I Miss
Track Name: Let Me Lead You From the Dark
This is a message to the Only Man I Love:
Just know I'm never giving up
I've worked too hard on you
to let you throw my work away
You're gonna have to stick around
Hold my hand my Dear,
I understand these things you fear
And I've seen it all before
No one knows but you
the things that you were meant to do
Let me lead you from the Dark
I've never mentioned this before
But you're the only reason
that I've chosen to remain
This place is killing me inside
But I can't bear to leave it
I ain't leaving you behind
Hold my hand my Dear
I understand these things you fear
and I know your reasons why
No one knows but you
the things that you were meant to do
Let me lead you from the Dark
You always were the only one
with shoulders it felt safe to cry on
because I loved you even then
We've seen each other hurt
By people who don't know our worth
But to me you're worth it all
Hold my hand Love
I Understand what you can't speak of
and I know your reasons why
I just want you to see
If it's hurting you, it's hurting Me
Let me lead you from the Dark
Let me lead you from the Dark
Hold My Hand my Dear
(Let me Lead You)
I understand these things you fear Oh Oh
(Let me Lead You)
Hold my hand my Love
(Let me Lead You)
I Understand what you can't speak of
(Let me Lead You)
And I know your reasons Why
(Let me Lead You)
Yeah I know your reasons Why
(Let me Lead You)
I just want you to see
(Let me Lead You)
If it's hurting you,
(Let me Lead You from the Dark)
Then it's hurting Me Yeah Yeah
Let me Lead You from the dark
Let me Lead you from the Dark
Let me Lead you from the Dark
