Track Name: Scarfs Are Just Blankets For Snakes
I think back to when I didn't know you my God.
it's amazing what I would do for you now.

and the reason that I won't give up is you.
stuck in alabama, the floors of chicago it's you.
speaking softly over the phone, these little messages and when I come home,
to crawl into any number of beds with you take in this waterfall in nova scotia it's you,
how could it not be? how did you find me? I'm so sorry for every moment I haven't been kind please hold me.

I love you. I love you. This world is 1000 times better, cause you're mom and your dad fucked each other!
Track Name: Girl! (Featuring Kat Porter)
Please allow me,
To speak this clearly:
There is not will nor force or power on this earth
To keep you from me.

And where I'm going
Will you come to then?
Cause all I want to do and see
Would be infinitely better with you beside me!

I cannot say it,
Words can't convey it,
The way that my whole body felt,
That night in Becky's car,

When we were singing,
Well it clicked right then,
That four months of denying it could make it no less true,
I absolutely, positively, had to, had to, had to,

Kiss you.

I want to be there when you wake.
I want to be there when you need.
I want to be there when you laugh.
I want to be there when you speed.
I want to be there when you're hurt.
I want to be there 'til you're fine.
I want to be there for tonight.
I want to be there all the time.

All the time.

And you know what I know.
And you feel what I feel.

There is nothing about you I won't love.
Track Name: Dana
okay I know I get a crush on every girl I ever meet but hey you know that temporary flings won't have you beat cause passing romance can't compete with what I've found you you are fearless your faith me makes me want to live so if life moves at such alarming paces then why must I ever learn to be patient and if you don't come on tour what will I do when it's cold late at night and I'm needing to see you? but don't get me wrong I want's best for you and it looks like staying home is what you need to do so I understand but don't you dare think I won't be missing you like I miss Gareth! Like I miss Gareth! and on and on and on it goes and you my God your face it glows light up the night and guide me home!

I'm driving to you at all hours my darling I'm waiting forever on subways and ferries I just need to see you and hangout and catch up and fall asleep knowing that our love is growing holding your hand while you sleep is amazing dreaming together proves life is worth saving wherever you go and whatever you do please know this my darling I can't ever loose you!

I can't ever loose you.
Track Name: Forget Everything That Makes You Want to Not Be This Band
I know you've been growing out of this
I know you've been waiting for the truth

Well everything's messed up with Dan
and the Shakes are stuck in Durham with their van
and my control issues are getting out of hand
and now Jesse's gonna go and quit the band

and what if I can't shake Sydney?
and what if I hurt Dana?
and now Derek won't represent me
and everyone in this bar hates us.

Don't worry man it will be alright.

It will be alright.

Endless travel with no money food or space has left me feeling like a big disgrace where is this dream that I hoped for?

Racing to a house show speeding through the night a basement full of kids will make it right this is where I am truly home.

So I will not feel better til we hit CA
I will not feel better til we reach New Paltz
I will not feel better til I'm rocking California knowing fully that this world was made for kids like us.

Knowing fully that this world was made for kids like us.

Oh Eric when I hear your voice I think I want to do this.

Yeah I want to do this.
Track Name: Likeluster (Featuring Moonlasso)
you won't find happiness in the things that are your burden.
what you need and always will is right here so take your fill.
the strength that you haven't found is right here dancing around.
you don't need album reviews all you need is friends who love you.
Track Name: When I Think About You I Trust Myself
and I want to know those eyes
and I want to know that smile
and I want to know every possible expression that face could ever make
and I want them memorized

and I want to know your body
yes I want in on that magic
I want to know every secret it's been hiding
every nook, every crevice, I'll call them all home

and I, I've had it up to here with all your games
I'm not some xylophone for you to play
no I got feelings real, and heart to
and if you gonna front I'm gonna bring them straight to you

Knock, knock, BAM! it's at your door
don't give me that look I know you've felt this real before
that weakness in your knees that flutter in your stomach
it's called love and girl I know you ain't above it

so stop me please if I'm getting out of line
but when we kissed I swear that shit near was divine
so what's you gonna do now that he is kissing you?
don't tell me bout your dreams I don't give a fuck about your dreams

if you want to kiss me then you better kiss me

and you are lying if you say you don't miss me

if you want to kiss me then you better kiss me
you pull me in close then you go and dismiss me
you tell me at night that you're dreaming about me
well darling I hope you fare well without me

cause guess what I ain't sticking around
no my heart is broke I'm leaving this town
please change your locks and here is your key
and don't ever think "oh he's waiting for me"

no I've got some better things to do
then sit around playing these mind games with you
and so I'm packing all my bags
I am gone tonight

I am gone, out that door.
I don't want your loving no more
cause I broke my back just to care for you
and still you'd act like I was untrue

I guess all my loving couldn't please you girl and that is not right in my world.

and yes there is a God above and all I ever learned from love is that I need him, that I need him.
he picked me up when I broke and gave life to this stillborn heart that I'd been grieving, oh and I've been grieving.
and what was I supposed to do when I was all in love with you it bound my spirit, oh it bound my spirit.
but I broke free from you unloving me and I can't wait to find another date, cause I won't settle for a piece of sheet metal no I want a fire of fires.

I want a fire of fires.

I'll save all my loving for someone who's loving me.
Track Name: Boyfriend Personal Achievement Awards
I know you never will
you're feelings now are clear
though you have kept them hid so well
your character's revealed

no you won't be my grace
or my great downfall
always something warm but far
you'll stay right where you are

but me I've got to go
and see this great wide world
maybe find another
who can make my heart quiver

but darling don't you think
"I'm replaced with a kiss"
to love you was a privilege
and one I will always miss

but I simply cannot wait
for a ship that never comes
I'll swim
if I must
Track Name: But I'm Your Fool
and lately it seems like you've gone crazy

and when we die, before we go, we'll find a love, a love that's never ending
and when we die, right when we go, we'll go to rest, rest right in God's hands

and all those brick walls they will fall

fuck our problems

and when we met I was actually taken aback by your grace
and when I grow old and my memories quit I hope the last one I keep is your face

girl you heal me you hold me you push me you shove me
my God how you love me
and I can't do this without you and I won't do this without you.

I am mesmerized by you.

Lord, I am mesmerized by You.
Track Name: BYOYOLO
go and fuck the shit out of your dreams

fuck it alright well I don't want to die just yet
all people everywhere rule and I can't forget
all of these nights that I've spent on your floors
watching movies and eating oh God I want more

To do everything and know everybody
I won't regret a single moment I spend being alive and young and free

go and fuck the shit out of your dreams
