Track Name: This City
I need to get out of this city
If you’re gonna leave too then I’ll stay
I always say that I’m gonna leave
But I won’t if I don’t today
So my bags are packed but maybe I’ll wait until the morning comes

Oh just give me one good reason
Just give me one damn excuse
Well you know you’ll always make me sick
But I guess I’ll always stay for you
So my bags are packed but maybe I’ll just wait for that reason

Maybe you were wrong
Or maybe I’m just insane
Cause I’d leave you for a future I never had
And you would never get in my way

But once I’m gone you’ll wish that I stayed


I finally got out of that city
Lord, how I wanna come back
All that I have now are my regrets
And my bags that are already packed
That may be true but I’m waitin' on you to call
I said that may be true but I’m waitin' on you to call

I thought that my problem was this city
But this city's problem was me
I burnt all of the bridges back
And through the flames I can’t see
So I watched 'em burn now I’m just gonna turn and walk away
I said I watched 'em burn now I’m just gonna turn and wish I stayed

Oh, Maybe you were right
And I guess I’m just insane
'Cause I left you for a future I never had
And you would never get in my way

Well now that I’m gone do you wish that I stayed?
Now that I’m gone do you wish that I stayed?
Now that I’m gone do you wish that I stayed?
Track Name: When You Leave
Burn my picture and sell my things
And leave your phone when it rings
Just disappear into that clever little world you made
And win the game you’ve always played

He comes and goes in the afternoon
He tells you lies you can’t see through
So I took the job he wants just so I could quit
But I care more than I care to admit

Oh, oh, oh

Well go on baby lie to me like you do,
You know I'm sure your luck is gonna run out soon
Yeah but for now, that’s how it’s gotta be
It sucks when you stay but it burns when you leave
woo, alright

I know I only mean something to you
Cause he ran off with somebody new
But you put on quite a show
Don’t tell me, ‘cause I already know

So every weekend, I watch the stars
I rake the leaves and feed the birds in the dark
And you fail to escape the conduct you condemn
It looks good on you to join them

You hang your hat from your seat on that fence
And confirm just what I already know
‘Cause you only come around when I got you off my mind
Then you leave when I don’t
I said you just leave when I don't

Oh oh, oh, oh

Well go on baby lie to me like you do,
You know I'm sure your luck is gonna run out soon
Yeah but for now, that’s how it’s gotta be
It sucks when you stay but it burns when you leave

"Yo I think I just fuckin' one took that" -Ian Downie
Track Name: My Guarantee
Well I am his mind, I can’t get you off of me
It’s not like I’ve tried, oh I do it helplessly
I am his mind, and oh can’t you see
I can’t get you off of me

Well I am his eyes and you know I’m stuck to you
Lookin’ your way is all I wanna do
I am his eyes, and oh you know it’s true
Girl I’m stuck to you

So we can shut all them doors, and I'll put my eyes on yours
Right where they wanna be
If you need me dear, you know I’ll be right here
That's my guarantee


I am his heart, and I belong to you
You can rip me out and tear me up if you wanted to
I am his heart and oh you know it’s true
Girl, I belong to you

I am his lips and you know I’m stuck to yours
And I ain’t never been stuck like this before
I am his lips and I don’t talk anymore
‘Cause girl I’m stuck to yours

So we can shut all them doors, and I'll put my lips on yours
Right where they wanna be
If you need me dear, you know I’ll be right here
That's my guarantee
Track Name: Comin' Back To Me
Woo
Your lies fill up your bones
You say you’d rather be alone
But it’s ok
You cover that sheet in ink
It really does make you think
You shouldn’t feel this way
Ohh wouldn’t have it any other way babe

I’ll call it like it is
I don’t think you should be his
And it’s true
Look at what you’ve done
Do you really think he’s the one
For you?
Ohh what else can you do?

I know it ain’t been long
But he must be doin’ you wrong
Cause you keep comin’ back to me
Woo

Climb down my family tree
And hear them all telling me
To give it time
But there’s not enough time to kill
And I wanna look busy still
In your eyes
Oh, look at these lies I hide behind

You wear your fakest grin
To you, I’m just somethin’
To deny
I’ll take it on the chin
I’m just a fool chasing the wind
And I don’t mind
Oh, I get enough of your love to get by

Well I know it ain’t been long
But he must be doin’ you wrong
Cause you keep comin’ back to me
Woo

I know it ain’t been long
But he must be doin’ you wrong
Cause you keep comin’ back to me
Track Name: If You Do, Please Don't
Yeah well your sad story’s fine
If you tell it in rewind
For everyone to hear

Well paint my shoes
With anything but the blues, oh
For everyone to see

If you do, please
Oh don’t show me
I said if you do, please
Oh don’t show me


Yeah well there's just a bomb
Waiting to go off
When you fill up past the brim

So I’ll write you a verse
While I gas up my own hearse, and
You lie and say it back to him

Now baby
If you do, please
Oh don’t tell me
I said if you do, please
Oh don’t tell me
Track Name: The Exception
She says she knows just what you need
Yeah she thinks she knows everything
One look at her face is your foot in the door
And you hear her voice and you'll only want more

But, everything changes and feelings are no exception
That gets lost in the things you failed to mention
Oh, oh

Your feelings will fluctuate like the stock market does
But it never goes back to the way it was
You feel the need to escape from it all
But, the swan in the sky can’t take the fall

Because, everything changes and feelings are no exception
And that gets lost in the things you failed to mention
Oh, oh

Well how could anyone who felt like I did for her
Ever say like how it hurts?
Now I hope everything will remind you of me
And how you left so readily

Because, everything changes and feelings are no exception
And that gets lost in the things you failed to mention
Oh, oh
Well, everything changes, my feelings are the exception
That got lost in the things I never mentioned
Oh, oh
Track Name: Wasted Time
I used to crave
Complexity
Now it’s just
You're boring me

And I should’ve left
When it wasn’t too late
Call it beginners luck
Or a fool’s fate

*sexy drums*

Now oh now, it’s just wasted time
It's wasted time
The fault's all mine
For this wasted time

Let me die
Watch me age
Drop me off
Where it rains

I just need
Somethin' to
To free my mind, oh
From thoughts of you
alright


Now oh now, it’s just wasted time
Wasted time
The fault's all mine
For this wasted time

Let’s not talk
Let’s not speak
Don’t you break
Oh, for me

Rack your brains
Do you know
The kind of pain
You can’t outgrow?

Now oh now, it’s just wasted time
It's wasted time
The fault's all mine
For this wasted time

It’s wasted time
Wasted time
Oh, the fault's all mine
It's wasted
