Track Name: Plans For Tonight
Blackout
Call me in danger
But timeout
Cause you're with a stranger
Fall out of everyone's favor
And get out before it's too late.

Cause you had plans us for today
But all your nights are up in the air
And when it gets this late it's tomorrow

I had plans for us tonight
But all my days I'm chasin' you 'round
And when it gets this late
You'll be gone

Take in another rejection
Cause fakin' is out of the question
All in
This is the big one
Your last night before we take off
Track Name: Hopeless Tavern
It feels just like a broken heart
So give yourself some more applause
But how could I even complain?
Cause now I know it's beating at all

(it’s time to get the fuck...)

Out of this old hopeless tavern
And back out on the street again
(cause I got nowhere to be)

I stayed in line when you named me
Your backup plan for just the night
So don't be shocked when you hear I
am rooting for your failure now
Track Name: Names
I've got a pile of excuses
For why we never were together
I've got a drawer full of photos
That really beg the question
Cause we had ups and downs
We bared our souls
Went to dinner and the movies
Made some jokes that were our own

But what was the name you used to call me?
And was that the name I used to call you?

You always said you were my best friend
And that it wasn't worth the risk
To be together for a moment
And then apart for the rest
And did I agree?
Did I put up a fight?
Well I'll have to check the records
We'll have to check 'em twice

And what was the name you used to call me?
Was that the name I used to call you?

So when you phone me in the evening
With exciting news to share
Please forgive my feigned emotion
Cause you sure don't want to hear
That I never moved on
Never let you disappear
So I won't crash your ceremony
But that's the best I can give

And what was the name you used to call me?
Was that the name I used to call you?

Well I guess we'll never know
Cause your name's about to change
Track Name: Lift Me Up
When you learn your count's been droppin'
And the outlook ain't too good
The mistakes when you were younger
You're gonna pay for them today
Just wait

'Cause I thought I did a decent job
of taking care of me
I swallowed all my vitamins
But now it's hard to breath
So come on

Lift me up, 'cause I'm not ready to let go
Lift me up, 'cause I'm not ready to LET GO

Now the hospital's alright I guess
If you can stand the cuisine
But there's nobody around here
To take my order for a drink

And the thought of my last days
Being spent inside of here
Is too much for me to handle
So would you call me a cab?
Come on

Lift me up, 'cause I'm not ready to let go
Lift me up, 'cause I'm not ready to LET GO

Now I've been thinkin' 'bout that time in Sante Fe
Where we stumbled 'round like the fools just tryin' to seize the day
I can't recall the details of how we got home
Is this the last thing I'll remember before I go?
Track Name: Very Interested
Here we go, don't have to slow down
'Cause the traction is plenty
And all these things, you think I would know
Are brand new discoveries

You see stars come tumbling down
That's very interesting to me
You see sunlight all around
I'm very interested

So find the time to notice our speed
is steady, and flawless
The second hand is cold and serene
It's doesn't need us

You see stars come tumbling down
That's very interesting to me
You see sunlight all around
I'm very interested

in you,
Always searching, looking out
In spectacles and stilts there you go
Beyond the place where safety says
That you should stop and turn around
Track Name: Stop Feeling Nothing
The ways that I have tried
To make you crack a smile
Are crazier than I'd like
So maybe I won't mind
If you hate me just decide to
Stop feeling nothing for me

And tell me you despise my lines
And tell me just to please stop tryin'
I'm wasting time on you

So baby it's alright
I'd be crazy to keep tryin'
To chase you down tonight
But it's painful when you hide
That you hate me all the while
So stop feeling nothing for me

But you were the one
Who's been crazy all this time
'Cause you, you think it's fun
To fuck with me
Track Name: Apart
It's time to start a new chapter here
Cause we found the perfect ending there
Now I'm just tryin' to wait until the time
Where we can take ourselves apart and make it right

But if you change and leave me hanging
Down below back where I started

I'll paint your picture I'll say your name
I'll write these words down just for you
I'll paint your picture I'll say your name

I miss you when she smiles at me
With a little more sense of urgency
Now I'm reminded of the better times
When you were here and I was more alive

But then you changed and left me hanging
down below back where I started

So I'll paint your picture I'll say your name
I'll write these words down just for you
I'll paint your picture I'll say your name

I miss you when I wake alone
And when I pass your house but it's not yours
Now I will think about you every night
I'll do whatever it takes to pass the time
Track Name: Up & Gone
When you see me comin' round
We you hear that I'm in town
Don't wait for me to call
'Cause I'll be moving on

When it's all about the end
You know not I'm another friend
Before the time seems just right
You gotta pick up the phone

You know it won't be long
Before I'm up and gone
Track Name: Crueler
Take me down to the spot by the trees
Where I can breathe easily
You've been tryin' to be honest and believe
That I would notice if you were

'Cause the time's been crueler to you
And now it's raining on me
And the time's been crueler to you

Unlit skies and the world is ashamed
Of things we fear not to say now

That the time's been crueler to you
And now it's raining on me
When it rains on you just
Don't be crueler to me
Cause the time's been crueler to you

Ask me now what I'm not looking for
A girl who's crueler than me
Track Name: Home
I followed you 'round 'til the end of the season
You left me alone on the outskirts of town
Remember the time when we thought we were creatures
That never could die and would never get old?

But time didn't care for our childlike reasons
And no one could stop what was comin' on through

Before the hours started slipping
And then the days were next to go
It's been years and now I'm wishing
That we could find a way, just another way to go back

Home
To somewhere we know
Cause we're living on our own
And it's out of control

So bring me back home
To somewhere I know
I've been living on my own
It's gettin' out of control

You're waitin' around for the start of the season
I left you alone in the center of town

Bring me back home
Track Name: Wait For Me
Wait for me there.
