Track Name: Hello My Future Girlfriend
I wanna lay you down on a bed of roses
but not like bon jovi I'mma leave the thorns in
cuz you like it rough, whoa

speaking of roses every one has its thorn
and I've been wanting you baby since the day I was born
I was in the womb with carnal desires for you

I don't say it like those other boys do
I've got to keep it real
I'm in love with you baby
yeah this is how I fucking feel

I'd do anything for your love yes I'd even do that
so tell your new ex-boyfriend he can have his shit back
cuz I'm moving in, whoa

I don't say it like those other boys do
I've got to keep it real
I'm in love with you baby
yeah this is how I fucking feel

When you're lost I'll look and I'll find you
You know I'll always be two steps behind you
And when we can try to find the right words to say
I guess I'll have to show you in another way
Track Name: Shooting Stars
in dying light
an amber tear's rolling from your eye
you don't wipe you just let it dry
as the wind blows over your face

lying here
flight of ideas, past regrets
and how you try but you can't forget
who you've hurt along the way

I know how you've been wronged
well, I've been here all along

I'll stay here waiting for
shooting stars til you catch one
cuz I don't care who you've
been with as long as I'm the last one
as long as I'm the last one

it turns to night and
still the stars dot across the sky
just like the holes in my alibis
you were onto all along

you know how I deflect
but you keep it all in check

I'll stay here waiting for
shooting stars til you catch one
cuz I don't care who you've
been with as long as I'm the last one
as long as I'm the last one

we'll take this car and drive back home now
we have our own sunrise anyway
Track Name: The Fatalist
won't you get to know me? (she said)
hey, let's watch this story unfold
but they phoned in the words
and the rule of thirds were
broken several times

it's been a while now that I've had a go at this
you know it's not the first time a girl didn't notice
but I see in your eyes
records of landslides
covering the best part of you

Hey girl, do you think something's wrong with you?
Nobody knows what you're hiding for
Hey girl, don't you be such a fatalist
There's more than one way to this heart of yours

how could it take so long
to find out who we are?
I guess I'll say goodbye
before we reach another arc

in this story
your eyes were on me
so careful, suspicious
but now you're not with him

another shot will end the same
loose covers block unsteady frames
but they won't keep you warm

Hey girl, do you think something's wrong with you?
Nobody knows what you're hiding for
Hey girl, don't you be such a fatalist
There's more than one way to this heart of yours

Hey girl, why on earth would it matter?
we both would be better
we could do things together
let's try out for this part
and I might break your heart
but at least it would start up again
Track Name: Fell In Love With Another Kind
I gotta let you know
girl I gotta let you know
I fell in love with another kind
I gotta let you know
things are running really slow
I fell in love with another kind

to wait for me is useless
take some time to get through this
you'll find another guy
I'll find another kind
my love came and showed me something new
and yours will, too

we fought and tore this love
and we both know it's enough

I feel that four on the floor
she's who I'm looking for
tighten the grip on my glass
cuz now she's in sight
she'll see I'm not like the rest
true as the beat in my chest
I think about her touch and then I feel like
Track Name: Médecin Chaude
She, my own Michelle, ma cherie amor
from heaven fell adorned
in jeans and scrubs
Me, a case study in moppishness
resigned to be forlorned
I need to touch

And if it were up to me
I would race Yee and Chen
and impress her again and again
be still my heart

Now I'm like a child on Christmas day
I'm never late to share
this air with her
Dreams of brunch along Champs-Elysees
with wine and creme brulees
we laugh and flirt

And if it were up to me
I'd forget about Beth and race one legged
head-long into our own chateau

Je reve de tremper ma baguette
dans ta soup
et puis leche le ju tres bien

(I would like to dip my baguette in your soup
and lick the juice very well)
Track Name: All Just Fits Together
let's take a walk instead tonight
just the two of us outside
a thousand fractions multiplied but
somehow you ended up by my side

lives they changed and hearts did break
but still a little held on
years we wasted we'll replace them
we'll pick up where we left off
with those and them some

torn down, remade
and it all just fits together
two lines translate
and it all just fits together

I watched a drop of dew
crawl down the glass
in morning sun and then
that little drop of water
beat the odds and split a part
and back again

people stay while others fade
and some we'll have to let go
as we've grown we've always shown that
if we take a wrong track
we'll find our way back

past lives now fade
and it all just fits together
grown up we've changed
and it all just fits together

time may finally slow my pace
but always a little holds on
keep these lines like fireflies
let them dance around in your head
even in my absence

torn down, remade
and it all just fits together
two lines translate
and it all just fits together
Track Name: Bullet points & Numbered Lists
it's gonna be a long time for me to get over this
I really messed up this time
I only think about myself and I take it back
but I let it happen
over and over again
I think I'll find a way to deal with this
in bullet points and numbered lists

1 take your hand off the door and
2 place it in my hand
3 we'll let it out and 4 forget about
every word that we said
cuz when I reach out (whoa)
and I see you've already left
no, I won't let it be 'til
you don't wanna sleep on any other bed

I wake up fine thinking you've left at dawn
then I come home to find that more is gone
I'm drowned in distractions once again
while working on this little plan
and it goes like

1 take your hand off the door and
2 place it in my hand
3 we'll let it out and 4 forget about
every word that we said
cuz when I reach out (whoa)
and I see you've already left

no, I won't let it be till
we can get past three
and I can lay out a plan
and you'll believe
this time it's not a lie
you won't get caught in an endless spiral
but what's the point of watching promises
fall off your back as you're walking away
I wake up and it's still empty every day
Track Name: Hey Tracey
throws her keys on the couch
next to old photographs
takes the last bit of wine
and pours it into a glass
Zach and Kelly going steady
on her window screen
she's over 30 but she acts like she's 18

and I know that when the first boy kissed her
she was listening to A-Ha and Mr. Mister
and even though I've never done this before
I think I just might ask her on the sales floor

thank god I turned 18
or this illicit affair wouldonly be a dream
like the one where I lay naked on the black satin sheets
you're my princess barbie I'm your GI JOE elite
we'll take the jeep to the beach where we'll sit all day
you can forget about Ken we always knew he was gay

and I know that when the first boy kissed her
she was listening to A-Ha and Mr. Mister
and even though I'm at my sexual prime
she's not, oh well, I'm sure we'll have a good time

hey tracy will you chase me
up and down the aisles of the department store
and if you catch me will you arrest me
and tell me that I'm not the one you're looking for

you told me you weren't available
but you were flattered that I was interested
before today you'd sit next to me
but now I wish you'd never heard me say

did you ever find
that perfect guy
does he know about those things you like?
I wish I was Regis but I'll never be this
I'll never feel those warm lips on mine
your warm lips on mine
Track Name: I Climbed to the Top
I gave into you last night
faced with a friend who was lost or he died
put my hands together closed my eyes
and asked for him back
and you gave him back

I remembered this dream around noon
knew that I had some work to do
sometimes we're weak and we fall
cuz we're humans after all

We're wired to cling to something
when troubles come our way
with no one to blame you take the pain you
hold it on your own
I know it's tough
with no reason to back it up

but I climbed to the top
of the mountain and found there was nothing
but the world below and you know something?
that's all I need
if they never stop
believing then I will still love them
and never feel like I'm above them
I want you to believe

but enough about how it made me
shouldn't your logic include empathy?
let me help with the math
you're a sociopath and you suck

I just asked too many questions
before it got too deep
we hand-pick our souls that move on
to be with again when we're gone
it's for our own little star
not the billions other than ours

but I climbed to the top
of the mountain and found there was nothing
but the world below and you know something?
that's all I need
if they never stop
believing then I will still love them
and never feel like I'm above them
cuz they'll always believe
