Track Name: Angel
ANGEL, oh please don't look the other way. I waited just to talk to you back stage.
Track Name: Beverly
i don't recall the last words i said, just the feeling good seasons could end. but uv's don't come in a bottle, that's just all placebo. i can't put my worries to bed. i can't keep my eyes on roads ahead. i'll never get back all the years and the tears that i shed. thats right. i'll be waitin waitin waitin waitin waitin until you take me back someday. but your silence only makes me love you more than yesterdays.
get me out of this sunshine my heart beats in vain for that pourin rain. get me out of this sunshine cuz i ain't/i'll never start to see what you don't see in me. get me back to those/some grey skies oh what i need the most won't let me get close. get me out of this sunshine. get be back to my BEVERLY.
look who washed up from ashore. calling your name outside of your door. i'm hopin that you let me in. i can't sleep at george's corner tavern. chasing dreams against wind and sand. does every actor need a band? its not that i hate, but no one goes to your shows but your fans. i was waitin waitin waitin waitin waitin until cheirs came and took me away. but i'd spend a million nights in the tank for you if that's all it takes. you could say that you''' never come back but i won't hear that til you be sure that the mind you made up changed. and you don't ever wanna see me again. get me out of this.
Track Name: Casey
celebutants be gathered off the blvd. some glamourous black skirts wipe their tears our fallen party girl ain't here. life don't go so easy for this billionheiress when all the johnsons money in your name won't buy you off the b list. you never could keep up.
its not your problem you got those secrets that you keep. but that shits gonna kill you. that first kiss of death you'll meet. in your honor we threw you a party but you slept in.
celebutants be gathered off the blvd. but this don't make no headlines. now what to do with the purse child you once were, too? life don't go so easy for these billionheiressses when your a-list entourage does their best but can't get you on the guest list. you never could keep up.
oh CASEY baby you got some secrets that you keep. but that shit is gonna kill you that first kiss of death you'll meet. in your honor we threw you party but you slept in. in your honor we threw you a party but girl just be sleepin.
Track Name: Daisy
i'll never rest til i get away from here. everything seems more the same with you each year. i won't play in to DAISY's chain of blame. don't give me reasons not to take your name in vain.
never had to walk a line to tell you i'd be leavin you behind. oh no. wasted all my time thinkin i could convince myself/the world i'd make you mine. oh no, i guess i saw it comin for miles.
i'll never sleep cuz my hearts beating too hard. guess i stayed up too late riding purple waves. like when florida snow crosses overseas, a war on love is all you get from me.
i'll never rest til i get from you and all the mali you talked me into. cuz when that shit crosses overseas, they cut it with the love you took from me.
Track Name: Evelyn
four and a half years of bein friends and you're everybody's EVELYN tonight. rainy weather girls won't show their curves and you're perfect for yourself every night. i don't know what to say or do each time i get closer to you. are you ever gonna be the one for me? each night i hope and pray be mine someday but you're everybody's EVELYN tonight.
Track Name: Georgette
oh GEORGETTE, since we first met, i knew you couldn't be right for me. oh GEORGETTE, i wish we never met. i knew that you'd be no good for me.
the queen at the crossroads, the queen at the cross, she's queen of all the french bulldogs and the good word from the lord. oh those southern belles are casting a spell on the pagan profit i worship and salvation i haven't found.
your father's a racist cop a self-made man imparting all his family values that kept red states fighting the blues. keeping the table full keeping young mouths fed. all christian children will be baptized in the water that i tread. kept me from feelin holy. you kept me from saying grace. figured i'd been caste to the pits - all non-believers in their place. oh i know that you've been saved from the devil in your grave and i know you crossed off sins you did and i hope you'll hang your head someday. someday, GEORGETTE, someday.
Track Name: Harriette
harriett. i took me 25 days to get to chino and i'm never gonna get along without you, girl. and i'm hopin and i'm prayin that you won't be with somebody new. if you need some money, girl, you know i got it. if you need somewhere to go, you know i'll get you there. just don't tell me that you won't be seein me, you'll break my heart in two.
but every hour i don't see you i'm a lookin where you been to cuz you're all i need/think about.
i'd wait everyday and hold my breath until you stay, oh HARRIETTE don't run away. i'd change everything to be the guy you'd marry oh HARRIETTE don't run away, HARRIETTE don't run away from me.
it took my 25 days to get to plano and our wedding bells are waiting for our wedding day and i'm hopin and i'm prayin you say 'ok,' that would make me feel good.
Track Name: Ivy
spiritual spacecase, i run from your embrace. no i won't buy or deny your superstitious logic, its just i won't even try. oh cosmic girl, don't show me your world. don't read me your tarot cards or pretend to comprehend feelings that i feel.
you're growin on me like IVY.
you followed light into dark clouds and i won't wait for your return. and when that dark gets you lonely, you're gonna get all that you deserve.
spiritual spacecase, you got your dreams running in place. while astrological horoscopes get up all your hopes that you're one in million. oh cosmic girl, don't show me your world. don't read me your tarot cards or pretend to comprehend feelings i don't feel.
Track Name: Julia
i said too much. forget the words, i guess i just need to show you an example. i won't take fashion tips from the nba.
i feel too much. but i won't be your frank ocean, steal your lotion, treat you like a best friend. a hen that knows how to listen to all your problems.
JULIA, if we're falling in love, then i'd leave ya. but your lips don't say i believe ya. from prague to cologne, i'll be true. JULIA, i told you before i don't need ya, but you ain't gettin the idea. from heaven to hell, i loved you.
looks not aside, i can't be asap rocky, grind your body talk you into a three-way. but i know sometimes you think that you want that, feign like you need that, too.
say what you wanna hear. but i won't dress to impress til trends gain interest. hold your phone to a.. mirror what you wanna year. we just bite our cheeks, unique mystique, wear clothes we only bought in context.
JULIA, if we're falling in love, then i'd leave ya. but your lips don't say i believe ya. from leeds to london, i'll be true. JULIA, i told you before i don't need ya, but you ain't gettin the idea. venice to rome, i loved you. leeds to london i loved you. venice to rome i loved you. athens to stockholm i loved you. from heaven to hell i loved you.
Track Name: Katie
KATIE, won't you let me walk you home tonight? tonight? it's really not that far out of my way.
Track Name: Liz
i don't think i can take it any longer the things you keep from me. confessions you half make got me fillin in the blanks. and i don't wanna walk in your shoes, meet the people that you meet. i don't wanna be at your arms length loading bowls on your love seat.
you spent the summer down in mendocino county to make good on the debt you're in. but you'll never make it right with the world when you smoke everything you trim. i got your connections, girl, but you don't share anymore. always passin me nothin but the stem while you're walkin out the door.
the only plans that you make are ones that you plan to break.
i don't believe the worst is ever over with you LIZ. i don't believe that you'd ever change. i don't believe the best weed can give us the space that we need. i don't believe the words that you say.
i don't think i can take it any longer the things you keep from me. confessions you half make got me fillin in the blanks. and i don't wanna walk in your shoes, meet the people that you meet. i don't wanna be at your arms length smokin spliffs on your love seat.
Track Name: Madeleine
the days turn like a ferris wheel and daylight never comes. makin breakfast in the afternoon after sleeping til one. no i can't spend another day just waitin round for you. cuz you just wanna stay home and chain smoke the daily news.
black are the lungs that breathe secrets that you keep from me.
MADELEINE, the time you take takes way too long. MADELEINE, that it takes, takes way too long.
the days turn like a ferris wheel and nothins gettin done. makin breakfast while it rains, we hardly ever see the sun. black is the heart that beats secrets that you keep from me.
i broke all the chains but you'll never leave. you can't keep me here and you can't set me free not from you. not from you. we'll never begin, oh no, we'll never end. i'm walking away, i won't come back again not to you, not to you.
Track Name: Norma
i don't are bout who's to blame. as long as there is hope, i'll always feel the same. NORMA i don't wanna say goodnight.
Track Name: Olivia
these eyes want nothin but destruction. this heart wants a foolish man to pay. i see this whole place goin up in flames. and my crystal ball proves that we're not wrong.
i don't wanna see tomorrow. i won't ever see the end of days. i didn't wanna see a burning forest thru the trees. but all the fear i instill will never keep you near.
OLIVIA, don't leave me tonight. OLIVIA don't leave me tonight. this church needs allegiance for survival. with guns ammo, and all of our american gold. i don't wanna see tomorrow.
i won't ever see the end of days. i didn't wanna see a burning forest thru the trees. but all the fear i instill will never keep you near.
Track Name: Paulie
out i will come thru the blowing trees. in maryon park, a picture frame i seize. in whistling winds, i stand behind my lens. i'm haunting this town, stalking the west end. we'll travel round the world, back to the olden days. and i won't ask for much, just your embrace. my heart is racing from the words i planned, cuz i can't make you ever understand. oh PAULIE, don't you cry.
out i will come thru the blowing trees. in maryon park, a picture frame i seize. we'll travel round the world, back to the olden days. and i won't ask for much, just your consent. dry your tears against the blowing wind cuz i won't make you wait until it ends. oh, PAULIE, don't you cry.
Track Name: Quinn
no i don't wanna go to renn fayre to see you. no i don't wanna go to renn fayre with you. QUINN, i won't give in and ride my bike and meet you down in southeast again. i just can't stand to spend another day hangin out with your white rapper boyfriends. not this time. no i don't wanna go to renn fayre to see you. no i don't wanna go to renn fayre with you. QUINN, how could you think i'd get along with your other burner friends. no, i can't stand to spend another hour waitin outside for your cuddle puddle to end. not this time.
a long drive to the hot springs on a wednesday night. i thought it would be just me and you. you brought your hippie brigade and a couple dogs, too. everyone's rollin on mdma. don't apologize for the way the universe works.
no i don't, no i don't wanna go to occupy with you. no i don't wanna go to renn fayre just to see you. with you long hugs and your long stares and your peace flags and your cleanse that never ever seems to end. i just can't stand to spend another sunday hangin in the free church line, again. not this time.
Track Name: Rose
it's not that i prefer honest answers, its just that i wish that you'd try more than enough to keep me around. the ROSEs in my city would never care for crooked teeth or public affairs. all this grey zones keepin me alone.
and every time you cut my line i'm alone at sea. i'm far from your shores, you'll never save you from me. your alibi, it ain't a lie but a tease. a please from my heart that you won't feel. and you'd never reconsider even if the world was endin.
the northwest boys want mothers for girlfriends, even so, you'd still pretend. cuz you just want another brother for a boy-friend.
and everytime you cut my line, i'm alone at sea. i'm far from your shores, you'll never save you from me. your alibi, it ain't a lie, but a sneeze. a please from my heart that you won't feel. and you'd never reconsider even if that world was endin.
if you just gonna keep playin, then let me be. i'd rather stay home then play make-believe so don't act like i'm the one who's s'pose to care. the ROSEs in my city would never wait for awkard kisses or public affairs and you got your own shit goin on.
Track Name: Tracy
and every hour that goes by, every hour i wish i's by your side you gotta heart i can't change. you're never thinkin of me, no, my love ain't runnin thru your veins. TRACY lock me up in all your chains.
i whisper words you don't wanna hear, i'm hangin on your every word. your every move. and even then, i'd still be your second choice every night. i'm yesterdays glass of bad champagne. TRACY lock me up in all your chains.
i can't mend what you wanna sever. or wish that you believed in guilty pleasure. at least i won't have to try to tend to the needs you're tied to.
and every hour that goes by, i watch the walls around me cave, you gotta heart i can't break. and even then, i'd still be, your second choice every night. i'm like yesterday bag of bad cocaine, TRACY lock me up in your room, in your cage, in your chains. lock me up in your chains.
Track Name: Valerie
when you wanna miss me again, i'm ready too. when you wanna kiss me again, i hope its soon. and i'm runnin back singing shalalalalalalalalalala woah. had a dream you were cruisin by with someone new. found another man to be with, please don't come true and i'm runnin back singin shalalalalalalalalalala whoa.
i don't know where (oh VALERIE) to begin (oh VALERIE) to finish up (oh VALERIE) or start again. i can't feel this anymore. i won't start another war.
when you wanna miss me again, i'm ready now. forget the past and make plans, restate our vows. and i'm runnin back. singin shalalalalalalalalalala woah.
Track Name: Winnie
we couldn't stop the world from fallin out of place. we're fallin out of love findin things that we can't face. i guess you get use to the things i'll never say. sometimes we never try, sometimes we never lose. most times i wish i could back out of what im in with you. you only hear me say alright. WINNIE, ok.
oh darlin oh oh darlin.
you'll never try to be a love that i won't share. cuz i just take my time to show that i don't really care. i'll never be your boy til you let me alone. i'll never be right with all the love that you have shown.
we're pressing all our luck, denying things that change. i'm running out of breath playing tricks on my own brain. i guess i'll never lose what i could give away. sometimes we never try sometimes we never lose. and i don't know what my arms would do if they ain't holdin you. i'm never gonna say, alright, WINNIE, ok.
Track Name: Xylia
XYLIA, why you do this oh XYLIA. why think you have to go and lie to me, you got me crying on my knees. XYLIA, why you do this oh XYLIA. why think you have to go and lie to me, you got me beggin baby please.
said you feel like you could live, but you think you're gonna die. tellin everyone you know that you're better than before. i don't judge the crew you choose, but you played a bunch of fools. i guess i'm gonna be a friend of your disease. drove off a river bend, thought we won't see you again. hangin out at your old haunts, swallow your final drink. off track betting in st. johns, what am i suppose to think? i'm never gonna be the friend you think you need.
but there ain't no distance keeping me from you. there ain't a thing you say you swear truth to. but there ain't no distance keeping me from you. ain't a thing you say you swear. there ain't no distance keeping me from you. everything i say i swear truth to.
said you feel like you could live but you think you wanna die. i tried to be engaged in bad decisions you made. but dark angels from the crypts blew a kiss between your lips. i'm never gonna be the friend you think you need.
Track Name: Yvette
i kept it high and tight til the end. anachronistic cliche. just say the things you don't wanna say. you'll never have to meet me halfway. this hair, girl, you know i can't change. i'm loyal to a love i can't have.
you are my dream girl. YVETTES my dream girl. i want her back. i want her back.
i'm ear hustlin when you pick up your phone. i thought you'd move away with me. and take on the laurel canyon soft rock scene. i'll never be the one you run to. i'm hurtin for some words to turn to. i'm loyal to a love i can't have.
Track Name: Zooey
sunshine, don't break my heart again. after all this time, i need you to be more than just a friend.
and every flare I shot up in the air only made more more completely self-unaware. beyond our sea, its just more twee. i didn't ask your saturn to return to me. your crooning noir, my songs you sung, your golden face don't got no silver tongue. if i ever end this psychotropic binge, i'd get you back and start over again.
ZOOEY don't break my heart again. you always run away everytime i wanna say that i love you. ZOOEY don't break my heart again. every hour that passes by, every day that turns to nigh, ZOOEY, i want you to know, i still love you.
