Track Name: Us We You Me
Us, we, you, me, this story’s been told.
We’re going ‘round in circles but it never gets old.
You’re so sentimental; I’m so stuck in my head.
You’re trying to absorb me but with one more kiss I’ll be dead.

Us, we, you, me, this story’s been told.
Boy you know I love you but my feet get cold.
I know you know me better than anyone else,
Talking to you is like talking to myself.

Ooo, we’re breaking the rules.
Ooo, I’m making my move.
Ooo, you do what you do.
I know I have a choice but I don’t feel like I do

I told you that we’re just friends,
you treat me like your girlfriend.
We’ve had this conversation.
It’s the only resolution

Ooo, we’re breaking the rules.
Ooo, I’m making my move.
Ooo, you do what you do.
I know I have a choice but I don’t feel like I do

I told you that I’m not good
I’m indecisive, uninviting,
Everything’s trapped in my mind.
You’re so nice, I can’t deny
I’ve done some things I know I shouldn’t
Broke some rules I said I wouldn’t
You still stay
Track Name: Whole
There you go again, you’re so typical
Then we’ll play pretend like our love is original
Next we’ll start to fight, you hate my jokes cuz they’re never well timed
I like to make believe I’m in love with someone who’s in love with me
In love with me

‘Cause it’s about that time, I’m wondering why I haven’t wised up yet
And if you left me now, I can’t for sure say I would not regret
This whole damn thing

Now you go to your friends saying I’m the one
Who let us go down this road
Saying I’m crazy, juvenile maybe
But you know, you know, you know
I’m not the one

‘Cause it’s about that time, I’m wondering why I haven’t wised up yet
And if you left me now, I can’t for sure say I would not regret
This whole damn thing

And it always feels the same when you say,
When you say you want me back
And it’s never the case that I get my way
Oh, you would never give me that

‘Cause it’s about that time, I’m wondering why I haven’t wised up yet
And if you left me now, I can’t for sure say I would not regret
This whole damn thing
This whole damn thing
And when I called you down to let you know this wasn’t gonna work
You said to me, with your eyes real wide and a stupid fucking smirk,
It’s not the end
It’s not the end
It’s not over

There we go again, so typical
Track Name: Stupid Boy
You called on a Wednesday night
You say you’re home, am I alone?
You’d like to come stay the night,
Is that all right? Hang up the phone.

You say you love my eyes,
The way I smile, you hold me a while
Brush aside my hair
and you say
I’m just a friend.
Stupid girl.


I finally get my way
When I don’t want it anymore
You broke all the rules today
But I don’t need you anymore

You’re so predictable,
You’re so stuck in your ways.
You think you make the rules
But I don’t play your stupid game,
Stupid boy.
Stupid boy.

I’m not your consolation prize.
You call this fun, it’s not a ride.
I’ve given a lot to get this far.
You’re foolish games won’t break my heart,
You stupid boy.
Stupid boy.

You called again today
And acted just the same
Like every work I say
Is so amusing you can’t wait

It’s so impractical
The way I give into you
This time its too late
‘Cause I know just what to do
Stupid boy.
Stupid boy.
Track Name: Giving It All Away
Don’t you tell me it’s the real thing
When you don’t really know the truth
Don’t you tell me it’s the real thing
When you don’t know
A thousand people came to cry today
But they don’t even know your name
A thousand people living the same life
Too afraid to try

But I
I won’t let it get away from me
Let it get away from me
All I want to do is try
All I have to do is let you love me
Won’t let it get away
Not today

I heard there’s a war goin’ on
And we don’t even know the cause
I heard that everybody’s gone
And we don’t even know the cause
A thousand people came to see your face
Speak a kind word and show some grace
A thousand people ready to live life
But you wouldn’t even try

But I
I won’t let it get away from me
Let it get away from me
All I want to do is try
All I have to do is let you love me
Won’t let it get away
Not today

How many times does it take to get it right
And how many people have to die
You told me once, oh, you told me twice
But I never seem to listen right
Just giving it all away
All away

How’d you get so far
Must not be that hard
Just giving it all away
Just giving it all away
Track Name: You Lose
No point repeating that evening
I might start drinking, more than I am.
No point repeating that fucking evening
When you said you loved me, then took it back.
And I have found the one
To call my own, to call my home
Yes, I have found the one
And you should note, you’re all alone.

No point repeating every detail
Like when you’d touch me and make me laugh
‘Cause every single fucking detail
I swear I faked it, all an act.
And when you look at me
I can’t breathe, I can’t breathe.
I swore I’d be the first one to leave
But you left me, you left me

Grow up, you put your heart on a string.
Tell me you love me now.
Grow up, you said it was all just a dream.
Tell me you love me now.
Tell me you love me, tell me you love me, tell me you love me now.

How could I be so naïve
To believe
That I was the one for you,
And you me, it’s funny
I’ve felt this way before
And I have played these games.
You think you’ve won the war
But just wait.

Grow up, you put your heart on a string.
Tell me you love me now.
Grow up, you said it was all just a dream.
Tell me you love me now.

I’m sorry you have to go down like this.
It was good for a while, but you’re not really missed.
You strung me along, you told me I was everything to you.
Now I wrote this song so that you know everything you lose.
You lose, you lose, you lose.
You lose, you lose, you lose, you lose.
Track Name: Color Me Blue
Welcome to the city.
Welcome to the city.
Welcome to the city,
The city of lights.

And who
do you think you are?
And who
let it get this far?
Color me, color me blue.

Little girl in the city.
Small world, big city.
Give in to the city
We’ll make it all right.

And who
do you think you are?
And who
let it get this far?
Color me, color me blue.


And late at night the city lights
Fade into the new.
And I can’t take it, I can’t change it,
This city owns you.

And who
do you think you are?
And who
let it get this far?
Color me, color me blue
Color me, color me blue

Livin’ in the city.
Livin’ for the city.
You can’t win in this city
But we’re doin’ alright.

And who
do you think you are?
And who
let it get this far?
Color me, color me blue
Color me, color me blue


Welcome to the city.
Welcome to the city.
Welcome to the city,
The city of lights.
Track Name: Count To Five
I drove home today just to drown one more time.
I rode around today, can't get you off my mind.
You're the tide and I'm sinking under,
You're the dark and I'm fading fast.
If I hold out a little longer, maybe you'll keep me around.

One more time you call me in the morning,
Count to five I'll be there that night.
The last time you say it's all in my head
I've had enough, it's all over.
One more time you call me in the morning,
Count to five I'll be there that night.
The last time you say it's all in my head
I've had enough, it's all over you.

I'll lose my head some day just to gain a peace of mind.
But for now I have to stay, insanity's my only vice.
You get your temporary high, then insist you know we aren't right.
You're back and forth, you're up and down,
still you know I'll be around.

One more time you call me in the morning,
Count to five I'll be there that night.
The last time you say it's all in my head
I've had enough, it's all over.
One more time you call me in the morning,
Count to five I'll be there that night.
The last time you say it's all in my head
I've had enough, it's all over you.
