Track Name: Rock
Baby, I've been thinking for a while
You know my mind isn't meant to be made up
But it gets harder and harder and harder, Child
When we break up and make up and break up and make up

But you say I'm the best you've ever had
And I wouldn't wanna break a poor boy's heart
So just sit here and listen if you wanna keep kissing
Instead of falling apart

Take me back to swing dancing in the kitchen
Late night kisses and long, long stares
Press your spine against mine
And tell me that you're there
Hold me in the rain while we're in hot water
Talk when you'd rather be alone
Tell me the names of you and someone else's future daughters
Be my rock even when you're stoned

Both of us just keep getting bigger
There's no more space to leave each other air
And Baby, when the chorus gets too lengthy and too porous
You know, it's better if the verse just wasn't there

So take me back to swing dancing in the kitchen
Late night kisses and long, long stares
Press your spine against mine
And tell me- tell me, are you still there?
Hold me in the rain while we're in hot water
Talk when you'd rather be alone
Tell me the names of you and someone else's future daughters
Be my rock even when you're stoned
Track Name: Queen of the Cul de Sac
Your morning breath is nasty
When it reeks of booze and chastity
And words so over-sweetened that they spoiled
We're smoking way too much these days
We sit around in after-haze
So docile that our families think us loyal

We drive just for a thing to do
A thing to blast our music through
Like your brother and my sister did
Cuz we're not going anywhere
Who wants to be a billionaire?
And dreams were made for inner city kids

So crown me Queen of the Cul de Sac
And you can be my Rotary King
Look around at where we reign
This little town is our domain
And we don't even have to do a thing
So crown me Queen of the Cul de Sac
And you can be my Rotary King

I told you that you shouldn't shave
With that rusty razor blade
But what is one to do when all is dull?
Once you've gotten your degree
Promise you'll come back for me
God knows that this herd could use a cull

So crown me Queen of the Cul de Sac
And you can be my Rotary King
Look around at where we reign
This little town is our domain
And we don't even have to do a thing
So crown me Queen of the Cul de Sac
And you can be my Rotary King
Track Name: Spring
Have you ever held the spring?
She is everything
Have you ever held the spring?
She is everything

And I’m sorry, baby
And I’m sorry, baby

Have you asked her where she’s been?
I’ve been lookin’ ‘round
And I haven’t found
Anything
Have you asked her where she’s been?
I’ve been lookin’ ‘round
And I haven’t found
Anything

And I’m sorry, baby
And I’m sorry, baby
And I’m sorry, baby
And I’m sorry, baby

Have you ever held the spring?
She is everything
Track Name: Hey
Hey
Come over here, siddown
I gotta tell you something
It’s been working its way around
my head for the longest time but the
Time was never right and I was always angry
And I never could see past the red
To say the words I should have said
I love you and you prob’ly know
I should have told you long ago
But you’re the hardest kind to love
The kind that I am terrified of
But I don’t wanna love
I don’t wanna love
Any less than you
And I don’t wanna live
I don’t wanna live
‘Less it’s next to you
But I swear that I’m not crazy, no
I swear that I’m not crazy, no
I swear that I’m not crazy over you
And I’ve never been an optimist
But I put settling on my Fuck-It List
And I’m kinda hoping maybe you did too
So hey
Come over here, siddown
I gotta tell you something
Track Name: Letting Go
I know where this goes
Won’t call it rejection
But both of us know
Can’t sugar-coat sadness
When it’s time to go
For good

Why is it always
That one crumbling brick
Turns the house we built together
Into a pile of sticks
Leave the pieces alone
It’s clear that our home
Can’t be fixed

Why is it so
I only know
How lovely we are
When letting go

Now I know that my mama
Showed her baby girl
How to tiptoe ‘round the ruins
of heartbreak in this world
But when I saw you
My cool point of view
Came unfurled

Why is it so
I only know
How lovely we’re not
When letting go

And as we slip away
I finally see your face
Tell me what to say
Tell me it’s okay
Tell me, tell me, tell me, tell me….

Why is it so
I only know
How lovely we are
How lovely we’re now
How lovely we could never be
When letting go
