Track Name: one hit wonder
hot days, summer nights
ask me to pass you the light
we're all just talking about
the things we're gonna do with our lives
but i never knew
what i wanted to do
i never thought that far
so in the time being i'll play my guitar

i'll be a one hit wonder and it's wonderful
like a rolling thunder or a rolling stone
i wont gather no moss, if i live that long
i'll hit the ground running and i'll hit that bong

aint got no aspirations
aint got no college degree
in the next rotation
come down and hang with me
im down here treading the boardwalk
im living my dream
never fond of water
when im swimming upstream

i'll be a one hit wonder and it's wonderful
like a rolling thunder or a rolling stone
i wont gather no moss, if i live that long
i'll hit the ground running and i'll hit that bong
Track Name: be yr man
i, i could be yr man
if you take me by the hand
and then if you love me too
then i'll make you feel brand new

and i knew since the day that i saw you
that i would always console you if you're blue
sweetie trust me here
i promise that im always near

you wont feel sad anymore
that's what im here for
i want to make you feel like
the most important thing in my life

you dont ever have to worry
about being in a hurry with me
honey take your time
nothing else is on the line anymore

you wont feel sad anymore
that's what im here for
i want to make you feel like
the most important thing in my life
Track Name: can't say no
the best of us learn
from an early age
to say the things we really mean
before the danger's too grave
dig yrself into a hole
you'll never get out of
cant bring myself to say the words
you're not the one i love

but i can't say no
no i can't say no

ive made a lot of bad decisions
in this short life of mine
im gonna tell you how i feel
it just takes some time
when u rly need some help
and u cant help yrself
you just need to dust me off
and take me off the shelf

cause i can't say no
no i can't say no
Track Name: alone
there's things i want to do before i die
i want to make use of this wasted life
i've got no hope left in the divine
give me your heart and i'll look for mine

can you be one thing to check off my list
will i never know the taste of your lips
i'd stop playing games and i'll speak to your face
but girl i know you'd put me in my place

im lying on the floor
crying on the phone
i'll spend every night
every night alone

im such a fucking mess
im barely afloat
and i dont wanna die
dont wanna die alone
Track Name: nihilist love song
i've got a bottle full of pills
i dont keep it just for the thrills
late at night when im sitting on my bed
i have these thoughts that keep racing through my head
im gonna do it, tonight's the night
this is the part where i give up the fight
i'll go to sleep and i never will wake up
my life is gone & im shit out of luck

i guess im sorry but glad that im gone
fuck everyone that played me like a pawn
i know that you have found a new guy
but i promised you love till the day that i died
Track Name: the view from down here (unfinished)
i've seperated my church and mental state
but im gonna need a god to save me from this stupid selfish hate
i'll understand, wont say you're wrong
if you up and left me here, waved your hand and said so long

you're a supernova
and i am a shooting star
who falls to earth, gets wished upon
and burns up in a show of fire
Track Name: time to go
why did you take my love if you dont need me
it wasnt hard for me to see
when i saw you walking down his road
i think it's my time to go

if you're gonna leave at least let me
take you home tonight
if you really wanna walk away
let me end it right
Track Name: sorry
i dont like anything
and i dont why
i always bring
my problems back to you

i just wanted to tell you
that im so sorry
this is overdue
ooooooh

i never wanted to hurt you
but i did the things
i always do
i dont deserve you

now i just want to hear you say
that you're better off and you're okay
without me

i dont like who i've become
everything that i do is dumb
i won't pretend you love me anymore
Track Name: party girl
i'll clean up my act when i mop up the floor
i don't think that i'm welcomed here anymore
a girl walks up helps me back to my feet
then she sits me down in her car seat
"where do you live, where do i need to go"
"nowhere unless i can take you home"
she laughs and she puts on the car radio
sonic youth, know that i've struck gold

party down on elm street
i thought this night couldnt get any worse
if somebody gave me another drink
you might as well call a hearse
but party girl, right next to me
treating me sweeter than southern tea
when i get home and im passing out
you're the only girl im dreaming about

i watch out the blinds, i've drove down every road
i've gone up every hill that my car could go
can you leave me a note, babe, cos i need a sign
do i keep waiting or am i wasting my time
girl of my dreams please come back to me now
i'd go to you first but i don't know how
a flyer in the mail, free concert till dawn
i immediately put my chuck taylors on

party down on elm street
i thought this night couldnt get any worse
if somebody gave me another drink
you might as well call a hearse
but party girl, right next to me
treating me sweeter than southern tea
when i get home and im passing out
you're the only that girl im dreaming about
Track Name: austin
it's another day, my friend, you're gone
it's what you wanted for so long
i hope you're happy
not feeling lonely anymore
i hope you're where you wanna be

don't worry about me because i'm fine
i just hope i didn't waste your time
because you've got mine
you're on my mind
i'm thinking about you all the time
Track Name: outta my head
one more cigarette and one more shitty song
i'll be going to bed, won't take too long

sleepless nights in a backyard shed
and it's cos she won't stay outta my head

i've been waiting two years for myself to come around
but your red hair comes and knocks me to the ground
it burns like a fire in the darkest night
and pulls me close to you as it burns bright

one more cigarette and one more shitty song
i'll be going to bed, won't take too long
Track Name: sleep
scared to open my eyes
don't like what's inside
facing my bed
can't move my head

as i start to descend
the darkness is my friend
as i start to descend
don't know when it ends
Track Name: weekend at zack's
the weekend
we salvage whatever we can
and carry stuff with dirty hands,
zackary's pool is a marsh
so out to the spot do we march

black sabbath all day as we waste our
whole lives away
led zeppelin till dawn and we put out
favorite hats on and head for the sun
Track Name: you just worry about me
you, you've been through all i put you through
i don't know what the world i'd do if i didn't have you
im heading for those pearly gates
i need someone to keep me straight

you just worry about me now

through all the years of suffering
you never seemed too phased by me hurting you and myself
now i realized what i've got
and oh my god it's going out the door

you just worry about me now
