Track Name: Makes Me Nervous
Kiss on the cheek, another week
It’s a drop in the sea, it’s whatever you need
Love of my life, cuts like a knife
It’s a fire to feed, it’s whatever you need

Kinda makes me nervous, baby
When my phone gets no service, baby
I walk around for hours trynna call you
Oh, trynna call you

Your face on a screen, the images freeze
Wires and keys, all that tie you to me
I scream at the pool and float like a fool
Cause I still want to be whatever you need

Kinda makes me nervous, baby
When my phone gets no service, baby
I walk around for hours trynna call you
Oh, trynna call you

I get so nervous, baby
When you get lost on purpose, baby
I stay awake for hours thinking of you
Oh thinking of you
Oh thinking of you
Oh yeah

I stay up all night thinking of…
Track Name: Write It On Your Heart
Write it in a book, dear
Don’t waste my time
Save it for your diary
Don’t try to ease my mind
Love was growing teeth
You were spitting blood
Write it on your heart, dear
You were never mine

Spare me your love
I don’t deserve anything
That’s how you made me feel
Traded me for a stranger, baby
Spare me your love
Cause maybe you’re a stranger to me too

Write it in a book, dear
Don’t waste my time
Save it for your diary
Don’t try to ease my mind
Love started running
Before it was through
Write it on your heart, dear
Am I the one you choose?

Spare me your love
I don’t deserve anything
That’s how you made me feel
Traded me for a stranger, baby
Spare me your love
Cause maybe you’re a stranger to me too

Crying on the phone already
And you always know it
Wanna say the perfect thing
But I always blow it
If you do not want my love
Then I will help you throw it out

Spare me your love
Cause maybe you’re a stranger to me too

Spare me your love
I don’t deserve anything
That’s how you made me feel
Traded me for a stranger, baby
Spare me your love
Cause maybe you’re a stranger to me too
Track Name: Get What I Want
He’s still calling all the time
Coming over to take what’s mine
He’s got nothing better to do
Than say “I’m still in love with you”

Can I get what I want this time?

I’m still dreaming of your face
And all my feelings gone to waste
Cause even though I know it’s true
I can’t be in love with you, no

Can I get what I want this time?
Track Name: 1-800
Call back, tell me where you’re at
Little fear is back, won’t let me go
Alone tonight, my 1-800 life
No one picks me up, they only let me go

Dance fever
Be my dream believer
I never do this either
So let me know

Body, that’s all anyone wants from me
So how sad for me that I let myself go
Alone tonight, my 1-800 life
I know you see the light
But you just let me go, I know

Dance fever
Be my dream believer
I never do this either
So let me know
Darling let me know
Track Name: Nothing Gets Me High
I look for you at the basement show
Only face in a faceless glow
Push my way through the indigo
Time is slow and I’m back in love again

Tell me something I don’t wanna hear
Any excuse to disappear
Survived without you all these years
But now you’re here and I’m back in love again

And I would love if you loved me
I wish I was seventeen again
Back when love really moved me
But that was then, yeah

I don’t want you to wonder why
Nothing gets me high
Falling for you, but I’m not satisfied
Nothing gets me high, no

And on those days when I think we’re through
Something stupid makes me think of you
My heart is racing down first avenue
Sky is blue and I’m back in love again

And I would love if you loved me
I wish I was seventeen again
Before love really hurt me
But that was then, yeah

I don’t want you to wonder why
Nothing gets me high
Falling for you, but I’m not satisfied
Nothing gets me high

I wanna be the best thing
That ever happened to you

I don’t want you to wonder why
Nothing gets me high
Falling for you, but I’m not satisfied
Nothing gets me high, yeah
Track Name: Talk With Your Hands
Can you count down from 23?
Years that you never thought of me
Talk with your hands, I’m listening
Nobody’s home or missing me

Time is the cell I’m living in
Rent is good, but the light gets in
I see you in my dreams again
So I’m sleeping in, I’m sleeping in

Cause I had a love but I lost it
I was cruel and cried like a faucet, yeah
I need you so I’ll keep my promise
I’ll be what you wanted
Whatever you want me to be

I lost myself a long way back
I’d leave it all if you love me back
The sweetest sound to echo back
Say after all, you love me back

I never said that I was tough
Skipping P.E. was bad enough
I loved you more than anyone
But I gave you up, I gave you up

Cause I had a love but I lost it
I was cruel and cried like a faucet, yeah
I need you so I’ll keep my promise
I’ll be what you wanted
Whatever you want me to be

I lost myself a long way back
I’d leave it all if you love me back
The sweetest sound to echo back
Say after all, you love me back
Track Name: Girl
Don’t turn a little thing into something
When you’re beside me, I do nothing
Boys stop and stare and say you’re something
You don’t know what to do with that

What do you think about
What do you, when you see me?

Girl
Or am I just another girl? (yeah)

I don’t think anything will happen
You smell like smoke and look like satin
We lie in bed and can’t stop laughing
I don’t know what to do with that

What do you think about
What do you, when you see me?

Girl
Or am I just another girl? (yeah)

There is a light between us
When you are not touching me
My love’s another year older
But it’s never rushing me
The height from which I’m falling
Takes the breath right out of me
I know you’ll never hear me calling
It’s crushing me, it’s crushing me yeah
Track Name: Automatic
Loving you in forward motion meant
Getting the wound and leaving it open
You tell me in words unspoken
A secret code, I’ll bleed til it’s broken

But the words come out in a different way
And you never say exactly what I want you to say
But when I look in your eyes, yeah, I cannot get past it
Love you automatic
I love you automatic

Loving you is all I know
The touch of your hand in the afterglow
It’s a long journey up, I can’t come back
I drowned in the bed, you slept in the bath

But the words come out in a different way
And you never say exactly what I want you to say
But when I look in your eyes, yeah, I cannot get past it
Love you automatic

Yeah I don’t want to feel like I’m hanging around, no
But I can’t hear if you never make a sound
No, I don’t want to feel like I’m letting you down, no
But I can’t hear if you never make a sound

But the words come out in a different way
And you never say exactly what I want you to say
But when I look in your eyes, yeah, I cannot get past it
Love you automatic
I love you automatic
Track Name: Absolute Worst
I get no satisfaction
Crawling into bed with you
Mad about some small infraction
The worst thing to happen to you

Is my heart in love with you

I get no sympathy
Crawling into bed at three
You do not stir, you make it clear
The worst thing to happen this year

Is your heart in love with me

In the middle of the night
At the start of the day
I sleep on the couch
To feel you away

I get no second chances
Turning myself inside out
Partner to my bitter dances
The worst thing I could cry about

Is your heart
Is my heart
Is your heart in love with me
Track Name: 365
Lying on the floor with your head on my shoulder
Thinking to myself you don’t look a year older
I left you alone
Long enough to miss me more

Living in a place where the light does not reach me
You’re a shot in the dark, but you make it look easy
I left you alone
So why do I still miss you more?

Give me your light
I can’t see past the window
Show me how to make it through
Give me your life
Tell me how not to die here
I want so bad to know the truth

Lying on the floor with your head on my shoulder
Thinking to myself you don’t look a year older
I left you alone
So why do I still miss you more?

Give me your time
I can’t see past tomorrow
Show me how to make it new
Give me your word
Tell me there’s someone waiting
I want so bad to know it’s you
