Track Name: Don't Know What I'd Do (Without You)
Don't Know What I'd Do

Last thought
in my head
Last phrase
'for I got to bed
I send out to you
What else is new?
Cliche notwithstanding

They say 'bout love
You can expect to fall
But in your case, baby
in spite of all
It's always
a three point landing

Don't know what I'd do
I don't know what I'd do
without you

A wise old poet
he once said
Unless you love somebody
nothing makes sense
It's hard to admit
when you need someone
who knows you.

Don't know what I'd do
I don't know what I'd do
without you
Track Name: Always In Love
ALWAYS IN LOVE

When I’m walkin down the street
when I’m drivin in my car
when I listen to your heartbeat
when I’m starin up at the stars
I can dream you up on a subway
I can touch you in a bar
I will watch you from my window
I will find you wherever you are

I’m always in love
here I go again
I’m always in love
from the beginning to the end

I won’t trade money
I won’t trade fame
I won’t trade anything
it would never be the same

I hear an old man in your voice
Broken bottles in your eyes
Insanity in your laughter
I go to pieces when you cry

I’m always in love
here I go again
I’m always in love
from the beginning to the end

I won’t trade money
I won’t trade fame
I won’t trade anything
it would never be the same

I love so many faces
I’ve loved so many times
I think I love the whole wide world
staring in your eyes

I’m always in love
here I go again
I’m always in love
from the beginning to the end
I’m always in love
I’m always in love
Track Name: Water
WATER

You pull me
from the water,
you save me
from the brink
My brain is
choked with static
& my heart
is clogged with drink

Hemingway
said it’s so simple
but takes a lifetime
to catch it all
but how can we
trust a hero
who with a shotgun
hits a wall?

You pull me
from the water,
you save me
from the brink
My brain is
choked with static
& my heart
is clogged with drink

Soldiers
in Viet Nam
watch their best friends
get shot to Hell
But we can die
just as swiftly
from a broken heart
as from a shell

You always pick me up
when I fall down
a lightbulb
in a dark room
in this crazy town
I’m sorry
& I’m embarrassed
but I get scared sometimes...

You pull me
from the water,
You pull me
from the water,
You pull me
closer
Track Name: Blood
BLOOD

Well he’s pissed off
+ he’s dumb
he’s horney + his fly’s undone
His mouth hang open like a bottle of beer
look like he gonna kill somebody

She’s hot
+ she’s handsome
got one bad eye
like Marilyn Manson
She tears her shirt off, she’s ready to fight
Her tits are fuckin fabulous

One kid
bust a window
+ another guy cut his chin
there’s a broad blowin’ blow in the bathroom
her lipstick’s all done in
The cops are crawlin’ all over the club
Look like they been smokin’ crack

looks like a full moon
hit my car
taste in my mouth like
feathers + tar
blood on my shirtsleeve,
blood in a glass
stupid over there you can
kiss my ass.
Track Name: Hopefully
HOPEFULLY

Hopefully
I’ll get
to hang out with you
today and

Hopefully
I’ll get
to play this song for you
and embarrass you and

Hopefully
you’ll answer
when I call you up
at 4 AM and

Hopefully
you’ll listen
and you’ll take the time
my weird my awesome friend

Hopefully
we’ll get
to see a movie
on Tuesday and

Hopefully
you’d love
to hear about
what’s driving me insane

Hopefully
we’ll stay
this way
forever and

Hopefully
we won’t repeat
our histories

(I don’t wanna talk about it)
