Sing To Me 04:03
The smoke here has been lingering Since 2002 You’re sitting here across from me And all I want is you To tell you how I really feel We don’t have to break this to know it’s real We don’t have to break this again. Will you talk to me? Will you talk to me? Oooh. Will you talk to me? Will you talk to me? You say you met somebody else But you won’t give a name I should have known better Than to bet the odds that we could be the same. And where do you find the words That you really want to say? And how do you find a receiver, When the noise gets in the way? Will you sing to me? Will you sing to me? Will you sing to me? Will you sing to me? Will you sing to me? Will you sing to me? Will you sing to me? Will you sing to me? I know it’s just a code We use to get along. We used to have such better ways We didn’t need words at all. My legs don’t when to march on And when to take a pause To breathe in deep, count to ten, And mourn the things we’ve lost. Will you walk away, away from me? Will you walk away, away from me? Will you walk away, away from me? Will you walk away, away from me?

Wake Me 03:59
I am the painter of my mind In the morning I’m the one to choose What color grey, what color blue And on the good days a shiny golden hue I am the runner who stays inside. I am a good person, who lies sometimes. I’m a person getting older And I hardly recognize Even the best things when their right in front of my own eyes. Can you shake me, can you turn me over? Can you wake me up, I’m alive. I’m alive, and I don’t want to be alone tonight. I’m alive, I’m alive Turn the covers down I’m alive. I used to look in windows, I get drawn into the light The family around the table, that moment when everything is right. I would watch her garden, hands buried in the dirt. I need to get lost in something, even if it hurts. Can you shake me, can you turn me over? Can you wake me up, I’m alive. I’m alive, and I don’t want to be alone tonight. I’m alive, I’m alive Turn the covers down I’m alive. We could be the rise before the fall We are more than shadows on the wall If you pick me up where you know I’ll be I’ve been sleeping in Just a little too deep. Can you shake me, can you turn me over? Can you wake me up, I’m alive. I’m alive, and I don’t want to be alone tonight. I’m alive, I’m alive Turn the covers down I’m alive.

Stoned and alone Staring at my phone I don’t even want you to call I just wanna lay here Feeling sorry for it all. Stoned and alone Nobody is home I don’t even recognize This life anymore Waking up and sleeping in With my clothes on the floor. Stoned and alone Stoned and alone Stoned and alone Stoned and alone Stoned and alone Pain in every bone I shed you like a skin So I Could finally see myself Naked with my heart open Now I’m just scared as hell…. Can I get back to, to the comfort world? Stoned and alone, in a comfort world. Can I get back to, to the comfort world? Stoned and alone, in a comfort world. Can I get back to, to the comfort world? Stoned and alone, in a comfort world. Can I get back to, to the comfort world? Stoned and alone, in a comfort world.

Coming Home 04:13
I know it’s been a hard couple of months Waking up and coming home to the dark. Hoping we can find a hint of sun Before our lonely work day is done Every town and city that I’ve seen We all share the same old broken dreams This feeling it is not unique But it still haunts me in my sleep Bloodshot eyes just searching for meaning. Tell me that you’re coming home Tell me that you love me so I am waiting for a sign to let me know.. Cause I’m shaking in my bones we’ll let this go I’m shaking in my bones we’ll let this go We work our 9-5 we do our part It’s tiring working for the bills more than our own hearts When everything is sinking fast We gotta find a way to make it last Please don’t let us Let this slip away Tell me that you’re coming home Tell me that you love me so I am waiting for a sign to let me know.. Cause I’m shaking in my bones we’ll let this go I’m shaking in my bones we’ll let this go You and me, we’re on to something Lovingly worn in and softly frayed We can build a fortress Pillows one by one to keep away The alarms and all the cars And the coffee that keeps us bored And buzzing through our empty day Eventually we all give in But I still hope I’ll hear you say… Tell me that you’re coming home Tell me that you love me so I am waiting for a sign to let me know.. Cause I’m shaking in my bones we’ll let this go I’m shaking in my bones we’ll let this go

Frozen Steps 04:13
The night you walked me home, I was frozen stiff. I asked you if you wanted to come in. That was when it started That was when I lost myself That was when it started. That was when I lost myself. I thought I saw my future in 3 first names I was just a kid in a college haze I would change some things if I could go back But life’s not living if you get it exact. I’m not gonna cry about it now I’m not gonna cry about it now I’m not gonna cry about it now I’m not gonna cry about it… Sometimes you gotta walk a crooked line Sometimes you gotta waste a lot of time Regretting the love you gave away So you know what cards to play When you’re dealing tomorrow. You know i get so scared About what i’m supposed to be Tossing and turning every night And talking in my sleep What am i supposed to do? What am I gonna say? What am i supposed to do when I’m the only one in my way? I’m not gonna cry about it now I’m not gonna cry about it now I’m not gonna cry about it now I’m not gonna cry about it… Sometimes you gotta walk a crooked line Sometimes you gotta waste a lot of time Regretting the love you gave away So you know what cards to play When you’re dealing tomorrow.

Stereo 03:03
This is never over the way you’re running through my mind The way I breathe you in I wear your clothes to pass the time. Nobody could ever fill your shoes I hate to say I know it’s true But I will always wait up for the sound of your worn in boots Turn the lights down low Turn up the stereo And when you leave I”ll press repeat And memorize our heart beats. So you called the moving truck I’m way too stubborn to wish you luck We were always the indoor type Can’t you stick around for one more night? In the morning you’ll drive with the windows down Wind blowing you’ll turn up the sound Of the stereo we know so well The sounds, they’ll bring you back to me. Turn the lights down low/Turn up the stereo And when you leave / I’ll press repeat And memorize our heart beats. I know you’re gonna come back I don’t think you’re gonna last I know you’re gonna come back I don’t think you’re gonna last So Turn the lights down low/Turn up the stereo And when you leave / I’ll press repeat And memorize our heart beats. Turn the lights down low/Turn up the stereo And when you leave / I’ll press repeat And memorize our heart beats.

Cannonball 03:03
You’re gonna wish, your name wasn’t a sound That could fall from his lips, And lift you right up off the ground. You’re gonna wish, that you never fell at all You’re gonna wish, your heart didn’t weigh You down like a cannonball. You’re going to believe Every word he says is true Till you’re left with nothing but The shadows of what you knew. You’re gonna hurt Hearts were made to break. If anybody tells you ‘love is all you need’ That’s your first mistake You’re gonna wish, your name wasn’t a sound That could fall from his lips, And lift you right up off the ground.

Tough Crowd 02:55
One of these days they’ll figure me out Their on their way to catch me now I’ve been hanging with the toughest crowd Made up of only me, nobody else I’m a fuck up and I’ve always been I’m a fuck up and I’m getting good at it Soak it up mistake, after mistake Oh I’m a fuck up but I’m not gonna break One of these days you’ll figure it out You can run the show cause your A big girl now You can tear yourself apart Living a lie But you only get your sleep Knowing that you tried Cause we’re all fucked up and we’ve Alwasy been Gotta learn how to fuck up and Not kill yourself for it. Soak it up mistake, after mistake Oh we’re all fucked up but I’m Not gonna let you break. Oh we’re all fucked up and we’ve always been We’re all fucked up and we’re getting good at it Soak it up mistake after mistake Oh we’re all fucked up but we’re not gonna let you break

Lighter 04:04
I’m giving up on you It turns out that’s exactly what You wanted me to do. I’m giving up on you you oooh ooh ooh I’m throwing in the fight I’ve gotta keep my strength to hold myself up right I’m throwing in the fight Fight Oooooh you’ve got me dancing on the ceiling Oooooh and now I’m crying on the floor Oooooh I thought that this was living Oooooh my loves a war I guess I should be happy Since you finally let me go I don’t feel quite so elated But my body seems to know I’m lighter I’m lighter I’m lighter I’m lighter I’m lighter I’m lighter

It’s okay to let the sad songs Sing you to sleep If I didn’t have Molina I wouldn’t make it through the week. Sometimes the words can’t come out right So we let that record play And suddenly somebody Understands you In a crazy kind of way. Tonight we sing along with every line And thank whatever god there is For giving us the time. I don’t need to know Where I’m going to be good I just need to feel a little understood I don’t need to know Where I’m going to be good I just need to feel a little understood It’s like the only light we’ve got is Fading every year But if I step outside into the moonlight I can feel the glow still here I hear it in every melody, every poster on my wall. This is how we live forever, this is how I’ll always call Tonight we sing along with every line And thank whatever god there is For giving us the time. I don’t need to know Where I’m going to be good I just need to feel a little understood I don’t need to know Where I’m going to be good I just need to feel a little understood I don’t need to know Where I’m going to be good I just need to feel a little understood

I’ve been trying for so long To read the writing on the wall Everyone to blame but me Now I see It was my neglect that let the splinter Bury in so deep, so deep I cry when I watch the tv, All my friends disowned me Every commitment one foot in Defeat is the drain I’m always circling I’ve been known to slip up, slip up I’ve been told to give up, give up But I was born in the dark And I can find my way from the deep end Everything is falling, falling Nobody is calling, calling I’ve got to shout the words I’ve got to shout the words so I can feel them. I belong here, I belong here, I belong here, I belong I belong here, I belong here, I belong here, I belong I belong here, I belong here, I belong here, I belong
