Track Name: Midway
Sitting in the backseat on a Saturday night
Places racing past me spitting halogen light
I wish that you would ask me if I’m feeling alright
The shadows you were casting nearly swallowed the night

But god, I could have kissed you

Midway between the end and the start
I cried like a baby, I tore you apart

I knew that I’d leave you by the middle of June
You touched me on my shoulder blade, soft like a tomb
I wanna hear you tell me you don’t know what you’ll do
The words you were not saying nearly filled up the room

Leave me where you found me
Track Name: Shame
Loved you once, shame on me
Loved you twice, count to three

I don’t wanna be afraid of you
Always runnin’ away
I don’t wanna get used to you
Never comin’ my way

Rotten heart, eats at me
Bites the bullet, swallows the key
Track Name: Joseph
Joseph, you didn't say half the things you wanted to
But I knew I’d leave you
You held tight, I walked on
It felt right, but I thought wrong

Gimme back that night

I want you to remember
I want you to forget about me

Joseph please, it's late and I don't know what's good for me
So let me in
I came back, your light's on
Don't say that I thought wrong
Track Name: Psychic Reader
When I look at you I get a good idea
Stay on the line until your voice feels nearer
I was meant for you said the psychic reader, yeah

When I look at you I get a good vibration
Stay on the line until I hit your station
I was meant for you so I can be patient, yeah

Am I hitting a wall?
Is it nothing at all?

I was in the room when you were leaning
It ended too soon when you fought the feeling

When I look at you I get a, get a rush
Stay on the line until I catch the right bus
I was meant for you, isn’t it obvious

Am I hitting a wall?
Is it nothing at all?
Track Name: Fight Song
Picture the end now, elbows on table
Let me down easy, my heart is fatal
I picture her walking, elbows in motion
I wish I’d catch fire like oil in the ocean

Whatever you do don’t think of what could be
Whatever you do don’t look up at the stars
Whatever you do don’t think of what used to be
Whatever you do don’t look at me too hard

But I won’t run and hide
From the missing arms that battle me
no I will stay and FIGHT!

Picture her naked, swallow, then chew it
You hate when I’m jealous, you hate that I knew it
Picture the future, step back to face it
Make love to me easy, my heart is basic

I won’t run and hide from the missing arms that battle me
I won’t run and hide, no I will stay and FIGHT!

Hold me back
Track Name: Things We Never Say
You never say you love me, but you never let me fight you
Can't get you off my mind, babe, so I bought this dress to spite you
I’ll wear it cause I hate you, cause you don't know what you got
Then I'll wear it to your house and I'll let you take it off

Cause I wanna be the one who holds you, I wanna be the one who says goodnight

I never get to see you, but you never go away
I’m talking to the ceiling and asking you to stay
And sometimes I think I’ve lost you, that you've forgotten that you cared
But then you call me in the morning just to tell me that you're there

That you wanna be the one who holds me, you wanna be the one who says goodnight

I never get tired of dreaming, it's you I’m sleeping for
Wish I knew what you were thinking when you kissed me on the floor
But I’m not sorry that I let you, or that we did this whole thing wrong
And I never say I love you, but I meant it all along

So boy just let me hold you, don't you dare say goodnight

You never say you love me
I never say I love you

But I wanna be the one who says goodnight
Track Name: Cruella
Your heart, they say, is the size of your fist
But you keep on swinging til the feeling hits
Tell me your hands will make noise when I fall
Your kiss is cannonball
Yeah, it goes boom

Boy, I know you’re taken, oh my love’s forsaken, you can make a fool of me
I know what you’re thinking, oh her love was sinking, when you sunk your teeth in me
I know not to do what I’m about to do, but baby you ain’t through me
I’m Cruella

The end of love was a slap on the wrist
And it’s the burn, burn, burn that I think I miss
Tell me I’m wrong, tie a string to my sweet tooth
I’ll take the night, instead of the truth

Am I wishbone, cut off from my better half, better off alone
Am I a dial-tone, ringing like a bell, sinking like a stone
Track Name: Say Nothing
Partially, I think there’s something wrong with me
I always tell you not to leave
You never waste your breath on me

But I could, I could run
And be this sad with anyone
Don’t ask where this is coming from
Don’t act like you’re the lonely one

When you took your love from me
I gave in so easily
When I’ve got something to say
You just turn and walk away

So stop, let me be the one to say nothing

A little bit, I think that you want me to quit
You’ve seen the ending from the start of it
So cut the act and let’s get on with it
Track Name: All-Nighter
By the time i think of something smart to say
I’ll already be a hundred miles away, yeah
By the time you miss me, by the time you miss me
By the time you miss me everyday, I miss you everyday

I stay up all night to see if you'll write me
A buzzing on my cell phone, a step outside the friend zone
If there are words you won't say, I will wait, that’s ok
But if you think you might, I’ll be there tonight

Am i dumb, are you mean to me
Is it dumb how much you mean to me, yeah
By the time you miss me, by the time you miss me,
By the time you miss me everyday, I miss you everyday
Track Name: Spin
Spit me out, I have a very bitter taste
I am not in it for the money, I’m just here to run the race,
and I’m afraid to die, but I ignore the reasons why
I cannot wash away this feeling

Hey baby I’ve been thinking about you
Hey baby I’ve been meaning to tell you
I don’t wanna die
Before you

Now and then I have to stop and count to ten,
These thoughts fill me like a dryer, and just spin, and spin, and spin
and I’m afraid to die, but I ignore the reasons why
I cannot wash away this feeling

If you knew that I’m not good enough for you
Would you just back out of the driveway until I’m out of view
I am afraid to die, and I try to hide the signs
I cannot wash away this feeling
