Track Name: Empty
stayed up all night
just to catch the light
didn't know what to do when you caught it

i'm not worried
but should i be?
i'm asking questions that you can't answer

late at night I hear your voice
I know you're happy with your choice
maybe someday soon we will talk

there's a light on in your windowsill
in the space that i used to fill
but for now remains empty

what'd you do last night?
do you feel alright?
well maybe you're just sick of lying

back before it all
first day of fall
you made a statement but you were mistaken

late at night I hear your voice
I know you're happy with your choice
maybe someday soon we will talk
Track Name: Hangin' Out
had to talk to my friends
cause you made it obvious
i've got a question
oh why are you always hangin' out with him

don't you know that this is real
can't you see how i feel
got that look on your face
maybe you just need some space

had a talk with my dad
and he seems so goddamn sad
i don't know where i've been
oh why am i always hangin' out with them

don't you know that this is real
can't you see how he feels
got that look on your face
maybe you just need some space
Track Name: It'll Never Be Me
well you fell asleep
during the movie
but i didn't even care
no i didn't even care

and i broke your watch
i caused time to stop
but you didn't seem to care
no you didn't seem to care

i saw U2
together in my room
but i didn't say a word
no i didn't say a word

and when you saw me
staring blankly
well you didn't say a word
you didn't even say a word

i've tossed everything you gave me
but the flowers, they're worth saving
they're all right

and even if you've found another
someone to call your lover
that's fine

just know that it'll never be me

well you cut your hair
said you didn't care
your eyes gave you away

and when you said to me
"you don't love me"
my eyes gave me away

we share my smokes
i told some jokes
and you thought you were in love
yeah you though you were in love

we walked around
the lake at sundown
and i thought i was in love
yeah i thought i was in love

i've tossed everything you gave me
but the flowers, they're worth saving
they're all right

and even if you've found another
someone to call your lover
that's fine

just know that it'll never be me
Track Name: It's Alright
scrambled message thru the wire
sleepless nights have got me tired
you can crash here tonight

we won't wake up in the morning
maybe we should be more boring
learn to call it a night

if we find ourselves lost, we'll head for the light
when we finally wake up, it's already bright

it's alright

jumbled thoughts and cloudy weather
what a mess when we're together
i can bum you a few

when i left you in poughkeepsie
& you said that you would miss me
i said i'd miss you too

if you find yourself lost, don't forget to write
when i finally get back, we'll have us a night

we don't talk
we don't try
you don't call me
i'm not surprised
did you say that?
well you'll be fine
are you having
a good time?

it's alright
Track Name: Faint
you called out my name
but not the same as usual

you turned around to see
you looked at me
you closed your eyes
oh my

when you're falling to the floor
i'm not watching anymore
i don't know what's wrong
maybe it's the song

that guy inside the tent
the medic
he loves this band

i watched as he danced
i held your hand
he took your pulse
while he danced

when they finally let us go
we already missed the show
and i said i didn't mind
"really, it's fine!"
Track Name: Thought A Lot
i thought a lot about
what you said and what we talked about

did you know? did you even care?
maybe i'll see you there

i know what you said
when you first talked to me
cause when we first met
you wouldn't talk to me

and i just wanna hold yr hand
but i guess i won't get the chance

did you know? did you even care?
maybe i'll see you there

i know what you said
when you first talked to me
cause when we first met
you wouldn't talk to me
Track Name: Car Wash
the sunroof in the rain
drove my car insane
faster than the couple inside

i can tell from your eyes
you stayed up all night
well i guess it wasn't just me

i don't know what to do
when i'm not with you
all this time we could be spending

and i don't know who you are
well we've come so far
all this time i must've been dreaming

where have you gone and where have you been?
when you are gone can we still be friends?
where are you now and what do you do?
well who are you?
Track Name: Where Are You?
what am i looking at?
when you said you'd be coming back

it's a puzzle i can't figure out
no matter how hard i think about it
i'm calling after you

"who/what/where/when/why are you?"

i found a place that i
i could say, i could even die

when you find your way back and i'm standing here
i'm staring at a puzzle that just appeared

"oh hey, i meant to ask you..

who/what/where/when/why are you?"
Track Name: End of Times
the admiralty is jumping ship my dear
a quick look around, we're the last ones here

you're awake at last in your summer dress
it's a shame to die, try and look your best

and we'll go til the end of times
don't you know it's the end of times?

i could stay all night til the light is gone
will the lovers wait to catch the dawn?

come back my friend, take me by the hand
take me to that place i can't understand

and we'll go til the end of times
don't you know it's the end of times
we'll go til the end of times
don't you know it's the end of times
Track Name: Snowday
where you go i will follow
don't you know that trees are(n't) hollow

would you say that you offered me a place?
even though there's no space

and i know what you're thinking
even though i've been drinking

when i call and i ask you to be there
we both know that's no fair

*outro to deep pocket by glocca morra*

"wait until the seventh that's when i get paid
i will take you out to dinner and we won't get laid
you can come over my house and we can stay up late
you can talk about your problems with your dad that day

wait until the seventh that's when i get paid
i will take you out to dinner and we won't get laid
you can come over my house and we can stay up late
you can talk about your problems with your
