Track Name: Green Eyes
Just rest your head,
you look tired, dear.
I'll turn the music down softly.
I'll turn the music down softly.

Just close your eyes,
while I wait right here,
with your hand in mine.
With your hand in mine.
Track Name: Barophobia
(Instrumental)
Track Name: Untitled #4
Everytime you cry,
it tears me up inside.
So much that I can't,
concentrate on anything.

I know I am flawed,
but, if you just wait for me,
to catch up to where you are.

I'll give you everything I have,
from this guitar,
to my favourite Transformer.
I'll dye my hair,
just to be as cool as you.

We'll go out and get pissed,
and dance off the rest of our blues.

I'll take you home,
and tuck you in.
I'll kiss you goodnight.
I'll kiss you goodnight.
'Cause I love you.
Track Name: Anhedonia
I'm all out of love.
My bridges have been burned.
The debris fell to the boats below.
I wish I'd been on a cruise that day.

Mixing vodka and whisky again,
so I go blind,
I'll never have to see you again.

I told myself to be patient,
I told myself to wait.
I fell for her 'cause she talked to me.
I fell for the bait.

I woke up alone today,
not love for to keep.
I thought I saw you in a dream,
I'll just go back to sleep.

My heart's snowed in in my chest,
although it's melting through.
It's burning through my ribcage,
and it's all because of you.

I told myself to be patient,
I told myself to wait.
I fell for her 'cause she talked to me.
I fell for the bait.

Limbs like tree trunks,
half-chopped and on fire.
Got a field growing on my face,
like the one we used to roll around in.

I told myself to be patient,
I told myself to wait.
I fell for her 'cause she talked to me.
I fell for the bait.

I can't feel my teeth,
slow, non-sensical words.
Another lonely drinking song,
everybody's heard.

I can't feel my gums,
stupid, fucked up words.
Another lonely drinking song,
I wrote about her.
Track Name: Spilt Whisky On The Piano
(Instrumental)
Track Name: A Bottle For Company (Your Favourite Song)
It's 2 o'clock.
Teary-eyed, with a bottle for company.
Your favourite song,
is the last thing I need to hear.

I'll call you up,
explain why I think you should come home.
And, you'll interrupt again,
with the shit you think I need to hear.

To make me feel better.
To make me feel like you still care.

There was a time when you meant,
the things that you said.
Now, you just seem to lie to me,
again and again.

I wish you,
would stop fucking with my head.
And, tell me the truth.
After everything that we've been through.

To make me feel better.
To let me know that you still care.

There was a time when you meant,
the things that you said.
Now, you just seem to lie to me,
again and again.

There was a time when you meant,
the things that you said.
Now, you just seem to lie to me,
again and again.
Track Name: You Wanna Come Back To My House And Listen To Jimmy Eat World's Clarity?
I feel the warm air brush by my face.
As you walk side by side with this disgrace.
I've blanked out all the pain that I've went through.
Something I've not been able to do for more than a minute.

And, there's something about the sea that makes me think of you.

I lie here holding your hand, listening to music.
I've never been so unsure of how I'm feeling.
And, as I start to tremble, I realise,
that I know I'm scared to death of losing you.

And, there's something about this song that makes me think of you.

And, looking back, I realise,
it was all my fault.
It was all my fault.

'Cause there's something about the sea that makes me miss you.
