Track Name: Happy Endings (No)
This is no way to be
This is not my cup of tea
And it's getting old, yeah it's getting old

There's no shelter I can see
There's no thought behind this sting
And it's getting old, all those things we said

They said that this would happen
Could this really be the end
Yeah we all felt something changing
Should've listened in the end

Cause there are no happy endings, no x2
Wish I could find my way back home x2

This is no way to live
This was no ones hell to give
And it's getting old, yeah it's getting old

There's no love here I can see
There's no thoughts consuming me
And it's getting old, all those things we said

And they said that this might happen
Could this really be the end
Yeah we all felt something changing
Should've listened in the end

Cause there are no happy endings, no x2
Wish I could find my way back home x2

Cause there are no happy endings, no x4
Track Name: Florida Summers
Florida summers
Are such a bummer to me
Sweat through all your clothes
In air so thick you can't breathe

I'm driving around with no A/C
Windows down with silly daydreams

Take me back where I could love
Sweat out all those things that I've done
Cause all this heat makes it hard to believe

x2
Track Name: Coffee
Make me coffee so I, so I can spike it
Smile brightly til I, til I can't fight it
Dear, oh dear, my dear

I sit in your line and watch
Those stray cats running scared
What goes through my mind as I
Pull up unprepared
Oh dear, my dear x2

What made you give me that look
Or did I make it up
Did I steal you like a crook
Or am I all fucked up
Am I too soon, am I a tool
No don't tell me
Are you a fool, for what you do
Someone save me

Make me coffee again and manifest your sins
I'll be back here for you, but can I count on you
Oh dear, my dear, oh dear, my dear

Chorus
Track Name: Be Good (Waxahatchee Cover)
It's unclear now what we intend
We're alone in our own world
You don't want to be my girlfriend
and I don't want to be your man

And that, thats a relief, we'll drink up our grief
And pine for summer
And we'll buy, a beer to shotgun, and we'll lay in the lawn
And we'll be good

Now I'm laughing at my boredom
And at my string of failed attempts
Because you think that it's important
And I welcome the sentiment

And we talk, on the phone at night, until its daylight
And I feel clever
And I hear, the slow in your speech, yeah you're half asleep
Say goodnight

Now I've got friendships to mend
And I'm selfishly dispossed
And you don't want to be my girlfriend
And thats probably for the best

Cause that, that gets messy, and you will hurt me
Or I'll disappear
So we will, drink beer all day, and our guards will give way
and we'll be good, and we'll be good
Track Name: Whispersoft
Whisper soft, I whisper soft to you
And pray to God these feelings don't come true
Cause I don't know the meaning of control
And this love you got just haunts me to my bones

Was there blood, were their bruises
Did you scream hallelujah
Was their blood, were their bruises when you smiled
Thin and vile

Kick back, watch a film with you
Thats all, that I want to do
A fast track to breaking all my flaws
Damn, Sam, you gone and done it all

But you'll try to change me somehow
And I'll try to change me somehow
You'll go and make me feel so blue
x2
If you don't feel it too

Was there blood, were their bruises
Did you scream hallelujah
Was their blood, were their bruises when you smiled
Thin and vile

Kick back, watch a film with you
Thats all, that I want to do
A fast track to breaking all my flaws
Damn, Sam, you gone and done it all

But you'll try to change me somehow
And I'll try to change me somehow
You'll go and make me feel so blue
x2
If you don't feel it too

Whisper soft, I whisper soft to you
And pray to God these feelings don't come true
Cause I don't know the meaning of control
And this love you got just haunts me to my bones
Track Name: Feels Safe
It's storming out so hide beneath your bed
I'd hate to see whats breaking you
Make up silly words inside your head
I'd hate to see whats haunting you

She says, she loves when she feels safe x2

She says she can't stand beside a man
I'd hate to see whats breaking you
Goes for coffee right around 2
I'd hate to see whats haunting you

She says, she loves when she feels safe x2

Come on back from wherever you're going
Come on back and be my Sylvia Plath
You should stay if you're thinking of leaving
You should stay and I'll have your back
x2

Someday soon I'd love to be your man
So I can fix whats breaking you
Pour some tea for me and for you
So I can fix whats haunting you

She says, she loves when she feels safe x2

Come on back from wherever you're going
Come on back and be my Sylvia Plath
You should stay if you're thinking of leaving
You should stay and I'll have your back
Track Name: Dez
Is it wrong to say "Oh, Desirae"
I feel our souls ain't miles away
We're too close for the distance 'neath these stars

So I try again
I make a friend
So I try again, I try again

Is it right to have these wicked thoughts
With all those good intentions brought
You're too sweet to knock me off my feet

So we start again
And we purge our sins
So we start again and we purge our sins away

Cause this tastes better than the whiskey in my mind
Am I too far gone to make it in your eyes
I won't blame you for saying no
Thanks for talking slow
Thanks for spending some of your precious time
x2
I'd better thank you kind 'cause you woke me up tonight
and it felt just right

Because I am, oh I am, I am, oh how I am, alive tonight
Track Name: Wicked Kid
I'll carry our fire today
Find things for us to say
Like the way our heavy hearts
Seem to change throughout the days

Allison x2

I'll carry our fire today
Find things for us to say
Like our silly little dreams
'tween our toes beneath the sheets

Allison x2

Lets play pretend that you'll come find me
While I'm out here all alone
Lets make believe that you'll come save me
When I'm high and feeling low

Allison x2

Turn the radio up, find a way to live
Turn the sunshine up, such a wicked kid
Such a wicked kid, such a wicked kid
x2
Track Name: So, I Sleep
So, how have you been
How are the kids
Did you fix their meals

Your hair got long
Was I wrong
We were just kids
We were just kids

And I don't know why I never called
And I don't know why I didn't try
And I don't know why I'm here at all
I don't know

So, I sleep
For the peace
For the dreams
I hope it rains

And I don't know why I never called
And I don't know why I didn't try
And I don't know why I'm here at all
I don't know
Track Name: Get Up and Gone
Get up and gone, but we should all get along

Don't worry about the righteous
Don't worry about your sins
We're get up and gone

I said I love you, did I really mean that?
Did I say I love you for good?
Track Name: When I'm Old
I had a dream of us again
A field of flowers and your sulking head
My crooked smile and your shiny skin
You look so precious when you're mine again

You won't like me when I'm old x2

Is this too good to be true
Cause I'm scared you're leaving soon

You won't like me when I'm old x2
Track Name: Darker Side of Love
It's Benadryl and sex
It's a drunk hook up with your ex
It's a darker side of love
Can you handle the buzz

It's a pill of X and hugs
It's chapped lips, tongues and drugs
It's a darker side of love
Can you handle the buzz

My my, God damn, I would give it all up for you
Your skin, your hands, holding my breath till I'm blue
x2

For you, oh God this is new

It's the darker side of love
But you're shining your light through my blood
It's a stranger side of hope
but I like you the most

My my, God damn, I would give it all up for you
Your skin, your hands, holding my breath till I'm blue
x2

For you, oh God this is new

Can we change, who's to blame
Was it mom, was it Jane, was it you?
Track Name: Drink With You
I could sit and watch you work
Though I sure hope that you don't think I'm a jerk
I could see it in your smile
You had your heart broke just a half a million times

So don't tell me how to fake it
I was dumb enough to make it
And I'm content to sit right here and drink a beer

Tell me all about your stories
No I swear that they won't bore me
And I'm content to sit right here and drink a beer

So lets hear about your sisters
You can tell me bout their misters
And I'm content to sit right here and drink a beer

What about your brothers
Spill your guts about your mother
And I'm content to sit right here and drink a beer

Something stronger if you got it
We've got all this time in our pockets
I'm content to sit right here and drink with you
Track Name: See Ya Tonight
Tell me whats it going to take me
'Cause girl I wanna see you a little more
And It may sound may sound crazy but
Being without you just makes me bored

Can I pick you up a six we'll drive into the sticks
And bring some drinks along
Or we could stay inside I'd have you by my side
To move the night along

Put a movie on, pour me something strong
Put a record on, we could sing along

Because you got me spinning round
You got my whole shit upside down
Never seen you coming, now you got me buzzing
And I just wanna see you tonight
Because you got me all worked up
I must seem everything but cool
Girl I wanna take you and girl I wanna shake you
And I just wanna see you tonight

Girl you got me smitten
You're cuter than a kitten
And I want more

And it may seem foolish
But something about your kisses
Just drives me mad

Can I come over tonight
We'll talk about your nephews and their baby grins
Or could I sleep over tonight
We'll cuddle up real tight and move the night along

Put a movie on, pour me something strong
Put a record on, we could sing along

Because you got me spinning round
You got my whole shit upside down
Never seen you coming, now you got me buzzing
And I just wanna see you tonight
Because you got me all worked up
I must seem everything but cool
Girl I wanna take you and girl I wanna shake you
And I just wanna see you tonight
x2
Track Name: Instead of Options
I'll never be taller, no I'll never be rich
But a mans gotta take what a mans gotta get
I wish I was healthy, yeah I wish I was fit
But theres no sense waiting around here for it x2

I'll never be smarter, no I'll never fully quit
But a mans gotta run to what a mans gotta get
Wish I could talk better, wish I could explain
But theres no use making an excuse for this x2

No matter what I do or say
It'll never be enough to send your love my way
I'll sit here and play guitar
But words are gonna fail me, they already are
Instead of options I had you x2

I'll never be content, yeah I'll always run from love
Guess a mans gotta fight if a man wants to win
I wish I could go back, I wish I was less afraid
But it's been 9 years now and not a thing has changed x2

Loving you all this time
Has been pretty simple, not a doubt in my mind
You got married one day
But I can't find a piece of my heart thats changed
Instead of options I had you
Instead of options I had you
Instead of options I had you
Instead of ever feeling something new
Instead of options I had you
If I had options I'd still want you
Track Name: Something in the Way (Nirvana Cover)
Underneath the bridge
The tarp has sprung a leak
And the animals I've trapped
Have all become my pets
And I'm living off of grass
And the drippings from the ceiling
It's okay to eat fish
'Cause they don't have any feelings


Something in the way, mmm
Something in the way, yeah, mmm
Track Name: Hallways (Seasick EP)
Schools out
And I've got no one to blame
For the photograph
Of you

Hallways where I always heard your name
But I don't recall, if we've met
No I haven't seen your face
Except for in my stains

Sour breath
Floats along the floor
But I don't recall, what for

In the sea
You were spat out like a cork
But I always knew, your fate
We arrived, too late
But you'll awake
Again

She arose
My Lady Lazarus
Track Name: Celeste (Seasick EP)
Celeste
I think I love ya
No I can't stop
Thinking of ya
Or your sister and her pearls
How they lit up all my world
Won't you bring me something sweet

Some sleep
I think I need it
'Cause I can't stop
My eyes from bleedin'
Like the way they were before
You lit up all my world
Won't you bring me something sweet

The drugs ain't kicking like they used to do
And the buzz ain't clean like it used to be
When every little thing seems so obscene
And I ain't seen a face so damn serene
Since you, I like everything you do

I like everything you say and do
Your voice, the wine, your cats
You kick me in the ass
I never fell so fast
There are things I shouldn't do
Can I do them all with you

The drugs ain't kicking like they used to do
And the buzz ain't clean like it used to be
When every little thing seems so obscene
And I ain't seen a face so damn serene
Since you, I like everything you do

I like everything you say and do
Your voice, the wine, your cats
You kick me in the ass
I never fell so fast
There are things I shouldn't do
Can I do them all with you
Track Name: Seasick (Seasick EP)
And he sins
Oh God how he sins
He dreams and plays pretend
And all the brown in your eyes
Are the means to his demise

Watch him go
Freckles on his nose
Screaming for your loans
And all the truth in his lies
Never comes out right

But he's seasick over you
And he don't know what to do
Do you cheat him with your eyes
Do you tease him with your smile

But he prays nice
And he talks nice
And he, looks to you for advice

And he, looks sharp
And he, stays sharp
And he, needs to learn some new advice

But he's seasick over you
And he don't know what to do
Do you cheat him with your eyes
Do you tease him with your smile

Cause he, seems sweet
And he, means sweet
He just, lost his sea legs and found his feet
Track Name: Sail Home (Seasick EP)
I would sail
All the way back home
Just to say all the things that hurt
If it were up to you
Things would stay the same
Theres something to lose in all these games we play

Whatsup
My dear
What is it that you fear
A heartache
It seems
You got twisted by
A girlfriend who abused you
With no signs of changing soon
You talked to the enemy
You're calling in sick today

I would sail
Across all the seas
To get back
What you took from me
If it were up to you
Then I'd be lost at sea
I've got too much to do to play in your fantasies

Whatsup
My dear
What is it that you fear
A heartache
It seems
You got twisted by
A girlfriend who abused you
With no signs of changing soon
You talked to the enemy
You're calling in sick today

I would sail
All the way back home
Just to say all the things that hurt x3
