Track Name: Him
If he doesn’t want every ounce of you
He’s a fool, baby, a fool
If you wait up, and he doesn’t show
Let him go, baby, let go

He’s a man, nothing more
He’s a man, there will be more

You deserve more love songs
Than all of the boys
You deserve more praise for
Your wisdom and poise
You deserve more than
I could ever give
But you deserve more than him

If he drags you lower than he brings you high
Say goodbye, baby, buh-bye
If you can’t sleep, can’t eat, can’t breathe
Let him be, baby, let him be

You are you, and that’s enough
You can always give him up

You deserve more love songs
Than all of the boys
You deserve more praise for
Your wisdom and poise
You deserve more than
I could ever give
But you deserve more than him

Who ever said you had to be happy?
We all did, didn’t we?
And all of us, hopelessly,
Hoped you’d find the key
But it isn’t him, it isn’t him
Now we see
It isn’t him, it isn’t him
Now we see

You deserve more love songs
Than all of the boys
You deserve more praise for
Your wisdom and poise
You deserve more than
I could ever give
You deserve more than him
Track Name: Little Mistake
Hey Thick Skin, how have you been?
You look a little strange
Has someone popped you with a pin,
Deflated your defences again?

Hey Thick Skin, how has it been
To be so aloof and aware?
You’re not perfect, but you’re worth it
Can’t you see we care?

It looks like something’s happened here
But we won’t ever say
It’s your secret and we’ll keep it
Clean up anyway

We’ll cover it in tacky glue
Stick it in a box
Wrap it up in duct tape
And a big padlock
Throw it in a safe
To the bottom of a lake
And forget you ever made that
Little mistake

“Hey there, kid, I saw what you did,
And you should be ashamed!”
Says the man. He don’t understand
The way the times have changed

These days when you fall on your own face
It’s not the end
You’ll pull through, I promise you
You’ve got a friend

We’ll cover it in tacky glue
Stick it in a box
Wrap it up in duct tape
And a big padlock
Throw it in a safe
To the bottom of a lake
And forget you ever made that
Little mistake

Now I have heard the prisons
In this country aren’t that great
They’ll tear you and they’ll scare you
‘Til your soul just suffocates
But I think I like you
I think I like you
I like you way too much
To leave you to that fate

We’ll cover it in tacky glue
Stick it in a box
Wrap it up in duct tape
And a big padlock
Throw it in a safe
To the bottom of a lake
And forget you ever made that
And forget you ever made that

We’ll cover it in tacky glue
Stick it in a box
Wrap it up in duct tape
And a big padlock
Throw it in a safe
To the bottom of a lake
And forget I ever made that
Little mistake
Track Name: Someone Who Loves You
Oh, she lays there shaking on the ground
It's been awhile since anybody's found her
Oh, she lays there waiting for the sound
And when it comes, oh, how it astounds her

Because your name held between the lips of
Someone who loves you is a lullaby
Oh, how the letters slip when they say goodbye

He plays her like his favorite mandolin
Singing, “Please, my dear, just let me in”
Something in her soothes his aching soul
Singing, “Please, my dear, don’t let me go,”

Because your name held between the lips of
Someone who loves you is a lullaby
Oh, how the letters slip when they say goodbye

But you took 22 letters with you when you left
Now the alphabet
Has changed your name into a four letter word
But you still say mine
Like I’m your world

Because your name held between the lips of
Someone who loves you is as sure as the skies
And, oh, how the letters slip when they say
Darling, this is it
Oh, how the letters slip when they say goodbye
Track Name: A Novel & A Movie
If I could count the times I’ve quoted you
And worked your words out of my pen
Then I would have a novel I could give to you
And weep while my wounds leak again

If I could show you all the times I’ve thought of you
And burn them on a DVD
Then we would have a novel and a movie too
To count the times I quote and think of thee

If we could see where life was leading us
Maybe I would hit the breaks
Take a turn to you and we could just
Drive along the interstate
Track Name: Violent Riots & Peace Protests
The moon doesn’t shine for me
The moon doesn’t shine for me
It’s for poets and lovers
But I have discovered
The moon doesn’t shine for me

The sun is a sin on my skin
The sun is a sin on my skin
It blisters and burns
But I never learn
The sun is a sin on my skin

Violent riots
And peace protests
Are breaking in and
Outside my chest
But I can’t seem to think
Of anyone else
Than my own pitiful self

The moon doesn’t shine for you
The moon doesn’t shine for you
You are tiny and small
You are nothing at all
The moon doesn’t shine for you

This is that way that it goes
This is that way that it goes
You try to change
But it all stays the same
This is that way that it goes

Violent riots
And peace protests
Are breaking in and
Outside your chest
But you don’t seem to think
Of anyone else
Than your own pitiful self

The moon doesn’t shine for us
The moon doesn’t shine for us
At the end of the day
It all will remain
And we’ll be dust to dust
Track Name: Cut & Run
Look
So here’s the deal
I’m sorry if I made you feel
Something that you wish you didn’t have to
You look a little desperate, dear
Careful in the way you want me
I won’t be your commodity

I never listen to myself
What makes you think I’d listen to you?
Believe me, I wouldn’t mind if
You’d cut and run a thousand times
You’d cut and run a thousand times

Look
So here’s the deal
Movies, they aren’t really real
They’re just one person’s weird idea of perfect
So I wouldn’t stand there in the road
Outside my window
Reality might come and blow you over

I never listen to myself
What makes you think I’d listen to you?
Believe me, I wouldn’t mind if
You’d cut and run a thousand times
You’d cut and run a thousand times

I realize I’m not always so eloquent
But simple terms are easiest for you
I’d rather get the job done once and do it right
Than leave you howling every night at the moon

I never listen to myself
What makes you think I’d listen to you?
Believe me, I wouldn’t mind if
You’d cut and run a thousand times
You’d cut and run a thousand times
You’d cut and run a thousand times
Track Name: Tangled Tongues
Tangled legs under ivory linens
Tangled tongues under pearly whites
I don’t know which body to live in
To leave or
To stay a shadow under your light

Shining eyes under watery lashes
Sunny skies above the rain
Stay with me while all of it crashes
Stay with me through the pain

(Why)

Tangled tongues lead to sticky gums
And the light doesn’t always quite come through
So I’ll spell out what I have been meaning to say to you

Did you know the moment I met you
There were no sparks or flames
Took a while to finally get you
Took a while to feel the same

Tangled legs under ivory linens
Tangled tongues under pearly whites
I don’t know which body to live in
To leave or
To stay a shadow under your light

But tangled tongues lead to sticky gums
And the light doesn’t always quite come through
So I’ll spell out what I have been meaning to say to you

Tangled legs under ivory linens
Tangled tongues under pearly whites
I don’t know which body to live in
To leave or
To stay a shadow under your light

(Why)
(Why can't I?)
Track Name: Thanks
We used to talk all night long
About our favorite songs
We used to talk all day
Turning the world away

But I’m tired, I’m all ashes
All my fuel’s used up
It was fun while it lasted
I cannot thank you enough

I never thought you could have been
Anything but oxygen
You held my lungs so tight
I saw stars in daylight

But I’m tired, I’m all ashes
All my fuel’s used up
It was fun while it lasted
I cannot thank you enough
Track Name: Art
My body
Is a masterpiece
A breathtaking, beautiful disaster
And loving me
Is an art form
I simply have not yet mastered
