Track Name: Hometown
Well if I was from your hometown would you like me still, or hate me by now?
I don't know the truth, but all I want is you.
Even though I'm not your type, entertain the thought of staying the night, 'cause I'd love to be the reason why you don't sleep.

But even if you never come around again, I would still call you my friend. 'Cause you are, yeah you are, yeah you are.

I just wanna say I like you for who you really are, but what could I say to make you wanting to stay?
I know that you have got to go but kiss me hard and let me know when you make home.


But even if you never talk to me again, I would still call you my friend. 'Cause you are, yeah you are, yeah you are.

We might as well live an ocean apart.
Not seeing you is getting hard, but it's up to you, you know my feelings are true.
And if I was from your hometown would you like me still or hate me by now?
I don't know the truth.
Track Name: Crocodile
Memories in tow, I went to bed feeling pretty low tonight without you.
Hesitations from the moon casting shadows in my room while I'm stuck in my head.

I can't go back to bed without you here.

I remember when, the first that you shed away your skin, and so did I.
Hesitations from my lips wouldn't happen now, and I'm sorry.
But now you're in your bed.
It's messing up my head without you here.
Track Name: Do You Like Me???
Just being honest, dear, you make me want to appear that I'm something I'm not.
So, if I disappear, it's only distance and time separating our minds.
But then again, I guess it's nice to know how you feel when you're home.
So, tell me please, do you like me? Do you like me?
I won't waste your time, I just wanna be alright.

Well, I'll be alright.
Track Name: Summher
I think that if we stay up and talk, I'd really get to know you.
But then again, we didn't come this far just to talk.

If there is something else I need to show then let me sink into your bones.
Then I will show you, and love you, take you everywhere you should know.

But we don't have to talk about what's to come, we could just lay here all day long.
And if there's something else I need to do to make you feel like I belong to you.
Then let me take you, and love you, and show you everything you should know.

'Cause I know that soon you'll have to find yourself back at home, and all the feelings that we felt today will keep growing.
I know that soon you'll have to find yourself back alone, at home.

'Cause all the people on the street just wanna take you home, but never could they love you like I do.
And I know you took a chance at love once before, and it wasn't for you.

And if the others wanna know why we don't pick up our phones it's because there is something else we need to show.
I wanna get you out them clothes. Then I will take you, and love you, and show you everything you should know.

'Cause I know that soon we'll have to find ourselves back alone, and all the feelings that we felt today will keep growing.
I know that soon you'll have to find ourselves back alone, in our homes.

Lover, don't go.
Track Name: Dead, Dead To Me
Oh no, my life is losing me.
It seems I'd rather sleep for weeks than tell all my friends to come and see me.
I'm wide awake, stuck in this dream where me and my brother never speak.
But I just know that he would hate me if I said he was dead, dead to me.

But I wish I never thought those thoughts.
My mind isn't right, I cannot control what it wants.

(I cannot control what it wants) me to do when I sit next to you.
Could it be all in my head? The things we could be,
but then she said.
She's wide awake, stuck in this dream where we won't get the chance to see what's left in store because I'm leaving.
Cause she knows that I'm gone to her already.

But I wish I never thought those thoughts.
My mind isn't right, I cannot control what it wants.
Oh I wish I never thought those thoughts.
My mind isn't right, I cannot control what it wants.
Oh I wish I never thought those thoughts, but my mind isn't right, I cannot control what it wants.
I wish I never thought those thoughts.
My mind isn't right, I cannot control what it wants.
Track Name: When I Am (Out of My Head)
With every breath you breathe you're sneaking into me, but I don't even know how to make you stay when we are underneath the covers and the sheets and all I wanna do is kiss you on your face.
Just keep me on your speed, and things that I might need when I am out of my head. When I am out of my head.

Just lay me down and sing, 'cause I don't wanna think about how soon you will be going away. So lay me down and stay, don't ever go away 'cause all I wanna do is kiss you on your face.
Just keep the memories that keep you close to me when I am out of my head. When I am out of my head.

You're such a precious flower.
Just stay, just stay with me another hour.
Track Name: Undertow
Though I can't find peace in the undertow, I can feel your pull, but I want to let it go. And the only things keeping me in my skin are the legs I'm tangled in.

Though I can't find love when I'm by your side, I can feel your hands, they're under covers as our bodies slide. And the only things keeping me in my place are the skin and lips I taste.
Track Name: Fall In Love With Anyone
I fall in love with anyone who knows enough to hold their tongue, 'cause I don’t talk too much.
The chemicals in which I lack have found a way to hold me back, 'cause I ran out too long ago.
I may not hear how I sound dumb, I waste my time on anyone who’s too nice to say no.
The very things I won’t forgive, well I’ve done worse, well I’ve done worse than you.

But I won’t tell them to you, 'cause you might leave me all alone.
I’m getting pretty used to dealing with this on my own.

We finally spoke the other day, I kept it short, played it safe, 'cause now we don’t talk too much.
I said the words that say goodbye, I don’t look back, I don’t look into your eyes.
I don’t look into your eyes.
Track Name: Home
I'll never know when all the leaves fall, but I can recognize when you feel small.
It's not my place to say what I would do, but if I was you I wouldn't go.
Never go home, never go home.
Track Name: The Picture
I took out the picture I'd put in a frame, 'cause when you came to see me it wasn't the same. It wasn't the same.

You'd warned me that the winter would make you grow cold, but I never listen to what I'm told. To what I'm told.

Why should it always be up to me when you're the one who's always ready to leave? Ready to leave. You're ready to leave.

I shouldn't be with you, but I love you.
Track Name: Undone
I've come undone pressed under your thumb for too long.
I stay too numb to keep all the plans that we have made.
Then I forget myself.
And I forget myself.
And I forget I live with your regrets.
The seasons brought no change; I still feel like I'm going insane.

I may sound dumb from staying up the past few days.
But if luck allows, I wish, I dream, I hope, I pray that I forget myself.
And I forget myself.
And I forget the things I should have said when I still had the time.
Now I find that I am losing my mind.

But I can't help myself.
No, I can't help myself.
And I can't help myself.
No, I can't help myself.
