Track Name: You Were Beautiful
YOU WERE BEAUTIFUL you say you don't want me / you say you don't need me / cause I fucked it up again this time / I only wished that you were mine / I recall you were fond of ALL / I recall you were beautiful / today I’m gonna kiss you / tonight I’m gonna miss you / cause I fucked it up again this time / I only wished that you were mine / I recall you were fond of ALL / I recall you were beautiful
Track Name: Outside
OUTSIDE you never knew what you did to me / I never knew I did you too / It used to be just secretly / a little bit faster now / on the outside of your love / and you’re all that I think of / I'm on the outside looking inside / I'm never inside / I can't explain that I'm missing you / glad I know you miss me too / there's a day I'll be into you / take you back and forward too / on the outside of your love / and your all that I think of / forever on the outside looking inside I'm never inside
Track Name: Just One of Those Things (Feat Dan Vapid)
JUST ONE OF THOSE THINGS just out of the ghost rapport / jumped out of the second window / I thought about it for too long / as I fill with emptiness / in this life of loneliness / I'd drink up all my dreams / and then I'd ask for yours / I'd go to bed if I could sleep / I'm just one of those things / that life can't keep / now where are you? / this life is without you / now where are you? / this life is without you
Track Name: Railway Station
RAILWAY STATION sittin’ in a railway station / I’m waiting for a freight to go by / nothing is the way I’m feeling / nowhere is the place I knew that / you would break my heart / what ya do with all that sunshine? / I’m waiting for the clouds to go by / empty is the way I’m feeling / never is the time I knew that / you would break my heart
Track Name: Letter Turn
LETTER TURN we divided this time / been together last time / and every time I think of you / is every time I wanted to / wasted everyday / things decided this time / fell in love for the last time / and every time I think of you / is every time I wanted to / wasted and too late / wasted every day
Track Name: Desperation Fee
DESPERATION FEE no you don’t bother on picking up the telephone / reaching out to call you up cause I am home alone / I know it’s wrong but I will pay the desperation fee / this weakness is without compare and I’ll forever be / waiting for you / it’s all I can do / I’ll call you back is a personal greeting that I can live without / open doors and off the hook and footsteps walk this house / all along and overdue / every little thing to get to you / onward through / to keep waiting for you
Track Name: Dear You, Dear
DEAR YOU, DEAR crowded bars and broken dreams / loneliness and nicotine / dull a harsh reality / of unrequited love and loss / and drinkin' to forget it all / I’m drinkin' until I forget your name / with this heart of mine you've broken / with this heart of mine you've broken / and every word you've softly spoken / is broken / an empty bed that is this song / of misery and what went wrong / so pour another / ‘til I can't think about you now / it doesn't matter anyhow / I’m drinkin' until I forget your name / with this heart of mine you've broken / with this heart of mine you've broken / and every word you've softly spoken / is broken / dear you, dear / like it was those years ago / I guess we'll see / if this is how it's meant to be / if I held you now / I know it wouldn't change a thing / so dear you, dear / do you miss me / like I miss you
Track Name: Everything I'm Not
EVERYTHING I’M NOT all this time / past but I can't find / a way to get to you / you can't switch sides / of chapters I unwrite / regrettably in truth / regrettably of you / I guess that I forget to tell you / everything I'm not / a moonlit night / a beer, a kiss, a fight / making up with you / waking up with you / I guess that I forgot to tell you / everything I'm not
Track Name: The Think of You Interstate
THE THINK OF YOU INTERSTATE my you seem so far away / I see your pictures taken in a book back home / I waited for the day / I think when me and you / seeing you / me and you / the think of you interstate / before I knew that it’s too late / a smile as bright as baseball lights / where every lesson learned creates a scar somewhere / a second chance can only last us for so long / when you’re old / the think of you interstate / before I knew that it’s too late
Track Name: Wasting All My Time
WASTING ALL MY TIME you said you were sorry / little did you know to what degree / it seems that we all die / lonely, broken hearted, alone / waste my time with you / wasting all my time with you / a drink sells this lie / that things will be just fine / our love's like Micha's bass head / you take me down and I can't help but / waste my time with you / wasting all my time with you
Track Name: Chalk
CHALK breathing springtime / a welcome incline / another year that I can’t find / I think it over / you’re getting older / it makes you wish that you would have told her / we could ride together / graduated / thought we made it / looking forward then just faded / we could ride together
Track Name: Holden
HOLDEN written by the band Chillerton and appears on “Bleak Unison” (2007 / Boss Tuneage Records)
Track Name: Looking After Me (Feat Jeff Pezzati)
LOOKING AFTER ME asleep and you're fine / dream a place that you can hide / from words you can't see / happiness out of reach / looking after me / by the time you should know / it's you and me / proof that life's not how it used to be / it's sad biding time / for better days that don't arrive / and dreams you can't reach / as life goes by emptily / looking after me / by the time you should know / it's you and me / proof that life isn't how it used to be
Track Name: The Great Salt Creek
THE GREAT SALT CREEK spin my tires never fall in love / love someone that never loves you back / then forever starting over again / drive right by and I’m over you / all those things that we used to do / should have been forgotten long ago / all fucked up and I’m not done drinkin' / temper change maybe stop my bleeding / right as I get pale unafraid / as we cross the great salt creek / the days that I wouldn't miss you now are gone / the years pass by and we're less good lookin' / I found your name when I found your book / in a corner of this mess that that is my head / the hurt goes on when you love someone / love someone who never loves you back / then forever starting over again / as we cross the great salt creek / the days that I wouldn't miss you now are gone
Track Name: Dear You Dear, Acoustic
DEAR YOU, DEAR crowded bars and broken dreams / loneliness and nicotine / dull a harsh reality / of unrequited love and loss / and drinkin' to forget it all / I’m drinkin' until I forget your name / with this heart of mine you've broken / with this heart of mine you've broken / and every word you've softly spoken / is broken / an empty bed that is this song / of misery and what went wrong / so pour another / ‘til I can't think about you now / it doesn't matter anyhow / I’m drinkin' until I forget your name / with this heart of mine you've broken / with this heart of mine you've broken / and every word you've softly spoken / is broken / dear you, dear / like it was those years ago / I guess we'll see / if this is how it's meant to be / if I held you now / I know it wouldn't change a thing / so dear you, dear / do you miss me / like I miss you
Track Name: On The B-Side
ON THE B-SIDE now the station / won’t come in / here’s another mess that we’re in / on the b-side / we don’t matter anyway / drove for hours / just to get here / drank another “fucked em up beer” / on the b-side / we don’t matter anyway / Christmas lights flash in the basement / another song a hundred times again / I always say that for the last time / it’s running circles in my mind again
