Track Name: Let Me Start
let me start let me start by saying i’m sorry
let me start by saying i loved you the most
more than the last girl
more than the last but i confess
more than the last
but probably not as much as the next

so let me start let me start by saying i missed you
let me lie and say i’ll never go again
and i’ll pretend
and you’ll pretend i really mean it
and you’ll stay by me
just because you can

it seems so easy
to say you need me
when it’s the loneliness
that we can’t stand

so let me start let me start by saying i’m sorry
let me start by saying i never was the one
it isn’t so bad it isn’t as bad as you’ve made it
imagination makes things bigger than they are
so let me start.
Track Name: Emma's Got Something to Say
emma’s got something for me
something to help me sleep
cause it’s been so long since i’ve dreamed
and she’s not alright with that

it isn’t so surprising
she’s doing what she has to

emma’s got something to say
but i just can’t shut up
she swears she’s loved me from the start
but i get in the way

it isn’t so surprising
i’m always in my head
she’s looking for a future
doing what she has to

“take me, you are everything to me.
take me, you are”

it isn’t so surprising
we always look out for
a way to make it better
we do what we have to

emma follows me to sleep
and we’ll be there for days
fall fall into the comfort
as she’s saying that she needs me

“take me, you are everything to me.
take me, you are.”
Track Name: Spanish Moss & Stars
angels on the telephone tell me not to go
but we’re just not where we don’t feel alone
she says everyday since i’ve left
is a chance that we won’t get
but you can’t swim and not get wet
and we could stay forever this way

i’ll play your favorite songs
and sing them all night long
and fall in love with exactly where we are
and we’ll burn, burn the candle light
and stay out all damn night
looking for spanish moss and stars

these days sink just like stones
dragging me down towards
the places that i never thought we’d go
she says if you ever come back home
I’ll take you to the shore
and tell you everything we ought to know
and we could stay forever that way

and i’ll play your favorite songs
and sing them all night long
and fall in love with exactly where we are
and we’ll burn, burn the candle light
and stay out all damn night
looking for spanish moss and stars

they always say it’s darkest before the dawn
as if the dark was something wrong
they always say it’s darkest before the dawn
but they’re all wrong cause
i can close my eyes and there you are can you see me too?
Track Name: Falling
i can’t stand the sight of you
it’s so hard just to breathe
you make the stone flow from my knees
until i’m falling
a smile and i’ll start shaking
you’re effortlessly making
pretending you don’t mean a thing
but i’m still falling

please come down and save me
i just wanna know your name

i need a hero with a capital N
i need a hero

i can’t stand the sight of you
every time my eyes find
my pride just falls to pieces
and i just fall apart
there’s nothing in the dream
if there are no happy endings
you give me something to believe
and i don’t believe in anything

please come down and save me
i just wanna know your name
let the whole world fall in two
because i still need you
please come down and save me
cause i’m still falling.
Track Name: Better (If I Could)
so i took my love with a sleeping pill
and i was out for the day
but when i’d finally come to
i realized i’d made the big mistakes

she says “it’s ok we all do dumb things
even though we wish we could”
it was a better me than me

so give me a bit of s-satisfaction i won’t lie
i’ve been waiting for her for so long
that i can’t remember why
when she says “oh, oh no,”

but i took my love like a sleeping pill
and we were out for days
and when we’d finally come to
i’d tried to throw the girl away

she says “it’s ok we all do dumb things
even though we know we should
you would be better if you could,”
i would be better if i could

so give me a bit of s-satisfaction i won’t lie
i’ve needing a win for so long
that i can’t remember why
when i say “oh, oh no,”

so i took my love like a sleeping pill
and i was out for days
and when i’d finally come to
i’d realized it’s time to fade away
and we said, “oh, oh no,”

i can’t shake the feeling i’m making the big mistakes
what can i say? they all go away
and this ain’t like the movies
there’s nothing that I can do
and nothing to say
you’re gonna leave anyway
Track Name: Actors As Friends
ashley can feel the cameras on her skin
she loves the way they burn
but she’s getting tired and they keep her awake
and where is the applause?
the crowds have grown tired of her one-note song
that she just keeps singing
she doesn’t remember how any of ‘em go
and she’s getting tired

she’s waiting for her establishing shot
where she's screaming at g-d in an abandoned parking lot
she says life feels like a movie that just won’t end
and she’s got actors instead of friends

ashley dreams she’s dying so she can leave
from someone else’s stage
it always ends in raining roses
but then she always wakes
Track Name: Options
i confess
that i don’t know
what i’m doing
from what i’ve done wrong
and i confess
that i’ve got no options
and feel my stomach turn
when conversation turns to you

so please make me do it
cause i just don’t think
that i am really worth it

because i believe
we all get what is coming
so when it’d my turn
i won’t be surprised
but if i don’t belong here
then i don’t belong
so just remember
when when you get the call i wasn’t here


but please make me do it cause i just don’t think
that i am really worth it
so lie and make it better
but it’s no mistake
that i belong where i lie

but then i see you
but then i know
cause when you look at me
i know it’s time to go

so please make me do it
cause i just don’t think
that i am really worth it
so go on and lie and make it better
but it’s no mistake
that i belong right where i lie
so please make me do it
cause i just don’t think
that i was ever worth it
so lie i deserve better, yeah right
if that were true
i wouldn't be here at all
Track Name: Don't Go
don’t go
don’t go
i’ll miss you so
please don’t walk away
don’t go
don’t go
i need you so
don’t you go away

don’t think for a second that you’re winning
just because you got ahead
i thought the same and look where it got me
yeah look where i am

don’t go
don’t go
i’ll miss you so
please don’t walk away from me
yeah i know
i should have seen it coming
but love was just never my thing

i believe if i look with conviction
in the distance i can see the world bend
that doesn’t mean that even if i mean it
i’ll ever return to our bed
but that hasn’t stopped me from trying
don’t go

i think if i tried any harder
this room would burst into flames
sometimes you have to know when to give up
but then again i never did

don’t go
don’t go
i miss you so
please don’t go away
yeah i know
i should have seen this coming
but love was just never my thing
no love was just never our thing
Track Name: Relax
relax
what could they do?
besides turn on you
and color you in as blue
i think you think
a bit too much
“in whites you’ll drown”
poison in place of love

what could you do without me?
what would you do without me?

relax
you’ve had a few
i promise you
it all turns out as true
i think you think
a bit too deep
“sell the reds or wind up dead”
there’s always a fire to put out

what could you do without me?
what would you do without me?
probably be the order to my joy
what will you do without me

i did my best, but i always do

so relax, you’ve had a few
