Empty 02:25
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

Hangin' Out 02:00
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

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

It's Alright 02:25
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

Faint 02:04
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!"

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

Car Wash 02:52
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?
8.
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?"

End of Times 03:05
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

Snowday 03:28
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 DEEP POCKET DEEP POCKET DEEP POCKET DEEP POCKET"

I never hope to see one;
But I can tell you, anyhow,
I'd rather see than be one.”
