Track Name: Good Ole Days
I think I’ll take off tonight
see if I can’t get into some fun
see if I can’t get myself along

I was a robber and a lover of friends
I went around the block and back again
I did it all before I lost my only friend (and she said)

What are you trying to say?
No one is listening anyway

I do miss the good old times, I wanna make em mine
I wanna get up and do it a couple more times.

I was a soldier in a modern war
You gave it all to me but I want more
I was a soldier and a lover and a revenge artist
I guess I’m not the smartest one

What are you trying to say?
No one is listening anyway

You never told me why
Why wasn’t it ever good enough?
But now my eyes can see
What’s good for you is no good for me
You’re no good for me
Track Name: The Other Side
I never thought that I’d be free
I never thought I could say no
Even when you went across the sea
I never dreamed of letting go

It’s been so long and I just don’t feel right
I must be doing something wrong

Shouldn’t be so hard to say what I mean
But it’s just so hard to do

I’m gonna close my eyes
Take a final step and say I’m leaving you

How does it feel do be on the other side?
Left with nothing that feels right
The words you used to say are over
Looks like you’ll be sleeping alone tonight
Track Name: How Can it Be?
Where are you? Where have you been?
Where are you going? Are you leaving with him?

Every day when I walk out the door
I think of your face when you said you didn’t want me anymore
You loved to tell me that this is the end
Once was enough but you told me again and again and again

I know your will is strong
And I know I done you wrong
But what’s this boy supposed to do?
I’d apologize but I can’t find you (tell me)

Where are you? Where have you been?
Where are you going? Are you leaving with him?

Every night when you lay down to sleep
I want you to remember the promise you said you would keep

I know you’re miss independent, you must have it your way
But I’m here to tell you I’m done crying for you
I’m done dying for you, you won’t ever hear me say

Where are you? Where have you been?
Where are you going? Are you leaving with him?
Track Name: Leopard Print
I’ll ask you twice if you’re serious
Cuz I don’t know what you see
But you must cuz you’re still right here
Like what you see in me
You like what you see in me

I will take you out tonight
Wear your leopard print
I will sing a song for us
I haven’t tired of that yet
I hope you’re not tired of that yet

I’ll ask you once again if you’re serious
Cuz I don’t know what you see
But you must, oh you must cuz you’re still right here
Like what you see in me
You like what you see in me
Track Name: Get Together
And if you ever asked her to she probably said no
Even though she’s dying to. It’s part of the show

And sometimes when it’s late at night
And nobody’s around
He crawls around the floor to see
What’s going on underground

He says he’s happy, she says she’s great
To get together, it might be too much to take.

They talk about it taking two
And maybe they were right
Cuz now they say ‘I love you, too’
At the end of every night

They wanted to get some love but they didn’t know
that in order to get your love you got to let it go

He says he’s happy, she says she’s great
To get together, it might be too much to take.
Track Name: Keys (Last Call)
I got two keys
One for the car
The other’s for the lock box
Locked in the car

I don’t remember
When we went wrong
We got to get to the gear
We gotta get outta here

Into the sun
We can be their tomorrow
Don’t tell no one.

We hit the stage a little bit late
After the sabes

and then we play
and then they shout
and then we laugh
for the rest of the evening

Into the sun
We can be their tomorrow
Don’t tell no one.

After the show everyone went home
but still we stayed on

Into the sun
We can be their tomorrow
Don’t tell no one.

Into the sun
We can be their tomorrow
You can tell everyone.
Track Name: April Fools
I think I’ll make you fall in love with me
I’ll lead you down a road that you can never leave, no matter what

Is that what you said after we met?
And can you even remember a time when you were loved?

Maybe I’m scared, maybe you’re crazy
Or maybe we’re both to blame
At the end of the day when all the fools have gone away
Will it matter? Does it matter?
Track Name: The Franklin
Take the Red Line
U City Station
Bay Three to the boulevard
To play a teenager

Down at the Franklin, over to the Rustic
Across to the Drawing Room and back to the Orchid

I didn’t know, I’d never seen the show

Down in the valley, go to work for Siavash
When I get the call, this could be a wash

To play with the ogre
To play with the elf
To play a maneater in a prison cell

I didn’t know, I’d never seen the show
I didn’t like so I had to leave tonight

I didn’t know, I’d never seen the show
I didn’t like so I had to leave tonight
tonight... it’s not right
Track Name: Stay the Same
Hold me like no other
Feel no shame
Such a blend of lovers
At the end of days

The days get hot and smother
The nights are lame
When we’re under cover
You feel no shame

And if you get lost
Remember my name
At any cost
You laugh, I still feel the same

My girl she ran for cover
She is my flame
She needs me like no other
And plays no games

The days get hot and bothered
The nights the same
Week long under cover
But you feel no shame

And if you get lost
Remember my name
At any cost
You laugh, I still feel the same
Track Name: Tell Me
Don’t talk to me cuz I won’t here you speak
if you’re trying to be mean
Don’t come around if you’re trying to bring me down

I am a man like no man before
With my love I could fill up the ocean to the shore
But I don’t fall to hard anymore
Still I can see me slippin, fallin through the floor.

Tell me that you’ll never leave me
Tell me that you’ll always need me
Tell me that you’ll never let me go
First you said you’d die for me but
All you did was lie to me and now there’s nothing left...

Don’t look at me with your eyes
They could never disguise you
I am a man like no man before
With my love I could fill up the ocean and overflow

But I don’t fall so hard
I’ve been watchin myself
Still I can see me slippin, fallin down again

Tell me that you’ll never leave me
Tell me that you’ll always need me
Tell me that you’ll never let me go
First you said you’d die for me but
All you did was lie to me and
Now there’s nothing left but letting go
