Track Name: What a Way to Start off the Day
And here we go, and here we go again
In another world, in another world where i gotta find new friends
I don't wanna go, i dont wanna go ill miss you so much
when you drive away, if you start to cry i swear ill be crushed

Now i'm here, now i'm here all alone
She said check this out, but i don't want to be shown

Oh no i'm not ready yet
no i'm not, no i'm not

Well look at that, well look at that a month has flown past
Who knew that i would get used to this place so fast
theres nothing like a friday night here on the grass
Thank god for them, thank god for us tomorrow we dont have class

Now i'm here, all grown
she said check this out, i can't wait to be shown

Oh yes i'm so ready now
Yes i am, yes i am
Track Name: Well, I have
Have you ever been so scared, that you don't know what to do?
Have you ever been so weak, that you just can't move?
Well, I have

Have you ever let it be, so that your nerves controlled your words?
Have the people all around you thought, "he's completely absurd"
Well, I have

Everyday, i tend to feel this way.
Maybe its cause your near.
Woah, darling please stay here.

Have you ever had a problem that you let go unsolved?
Have you ever thought some people are just a little less evolved?
Well, I have
Track Name: Don't You Dare
Don't you dare, don't you dare
don't you dare go back tonight
theres something strange about this night
something wrong and something right
oh i want to, i want to, i want to so bad, so bad

What is wrong, what is wrong
what is wrong with my head
i should be home asleep in bed
but no i'm here, playing dead
oh i want to, i want to, i want to so bad, so bad

Ask myself what am i doing here?
I don't know
Trust me everything is crystal clear
I should go

Don't you dare, don't you dare
don't you dare go back tonight
theres something strange about this night
something wrong and something right
oh i want to, i want to, i want to so bad, so bad
Track Name: I Can't Wait
I can be your neutral friend, your secret lover
just as long as we get past the past
and can laugh at each other

I don't think theres much left for me to do today
Just sit here and conspire, conspire and waste away

I can't wait, no i can't wait
anymore, anymore for this

Tell our parents lies so we can both be free
Pick a site, we'll build a fire its bed time early

what a gift ive got here, im still a bit in shock
maybe things have turned and ive ended here on top

I cant wait, no i cant wait
anymore, anymore for this

I know that theres something wrong here
I thought i heard you say you didnt want to say, let me open my ears
cross the t's and dot the i's we'll finish this phrasing
With these open ears a melody sounds so, sounds so amazing

I don't think theres much left for me to do today
Just sit here and conspire, conspire and waste away
Track Name: A Complicated Mind
i have wished, and i have hoped
that one day i'd have a show
where millions of people wanted to go

maybe i can, maybe i can do it
i heard you can do anything if you put your mind to it

No, i'm as good as dead
all these fantasies are just in my head

Ive heard people say that they like my songs
its one of the things thats keeping me strong
but what really helped was when they sang along

maybe i can, maybe i can do it
i heard you can do anything if you put your mind to it

No, i'm as good as dead
all these fantasies are just in my head
Track Name: Ka-Boom
Who am i?
where am i?
all these things i see, just can't be

Who are you?
Where are you?
All these things i feel, can't be real

I've been here a lot, before
Who knew underneath was so much more?

These things i see, just can't be
Track Name: Miami
Caught inbetween this life and a dream
i'm not quite asleep
Wasting my time, help me smoke to unwind
oh this is one interesting week

where are we going?
its not worth knowing.
we'll take the high road, no matter where it goes

Glass after glass not a singer with class here at the tavern tonight
Playing a show is a formidable foe, oh we are such a sight

where are we going?
its not worth knowing.
we'll take the high road, no matter where it goes

Throughout all of this ive learned so much
I used to rule this world, but ive lost my touch

Now that this land fits into my hand
I'll hold onto it all
Track Name: What a Bitch
Who did you sleep with last night?
I'm sure it's someone gross.
You're making people cringe like me.
Maybe if you kept yourself tidied up
and somewhat clean, oh no.

And to think that i wished that we'd get hitched
Oh, what a bitch
You make me want to huhhhh in my mouth a little bit.

You said that i should know that thats not who you are,
than how do you explain who and what you've done so far?
It makes me sick to think i let you touch my....heart
when all i wanna do, all i wanna do now is tear you apart

And to think that i wished that we'd get hitched
Oh, what a bitch
You make me want to huhhhh in my mouth a little bit.

And to think that i loved you baby.
I guess i must've been a bit crazy.

Everyday is a new day in my book
Every time i see your face, i can't look
Everyday is a new day in my book
Every time i see my past, i can't look, no
Track Name: Nonsense
"Take a turn at the wheel" she said
We're going home but we're not gonna sleep
"It's my turn" she said "I'll do what i want
Oh, tomorrow you're gonna be beat"

Woe is me.
I don't know where I'm supposed to be.

This does not make any sense.
I sure could use some tolerance.
Now that I've made myself clear,
I know that I shouldn't be here.

Now before we go and say goodbye,
I've got some things left on my mind.
The time we had was good no doubt,
but honey youre just not my kind.

Woe is me.
I don't know where I'm supposed to be.

This does not make any sense.
I sure could use some tolerance.
Now that I've made myself clear,
I know that I shouldn't be here.

Can somebody tell me how to stop me?

I don't know where I'm supposed to be.

This does not make any sense.
I sure could use some tolerance.
Now that I've made myself clear,
I know that I shouldn't be here.
Track Name: Lullagoodbye
Good night, good night
good night, sleep tight

i won't sleep, if you won't sleep
no i won't sleep a wink

take me far, take me far, take me far
away from here

Sweet dreams, darling
sweet dreams of you and me

I know right now, its hard for you
but some dreams do come true

Float away, float away, float away, to another place

Good night, good night
good night, sleep tight

now its time, its time for bed
its time to rest your head
ill tuck you in, your nice warm bed
its time to rest your head

Dream away, dream away, dream away
