Track Name: President
i wanna write a bad song
and dedicate it to you
i wanna make you cry
i want to see it through
well i got so caught up in
watching you from afar
i thought we were running together
when you were making me crawl

somewhere in the universe
you're writing poetic verse
you're reciting it
for a girl who could
stay quiet
stay quiet
stop lying please

i know you have gardens in you
i used to watch you bloom
every spring like clockwork
april, may, and june
i remember when i first saw you
humming someone else's tune
a crowd of people watching
calling out to you

somewhere in the universe
you're writing poetic verse
you're reciting it
for a girl who could
stay quiet
stay quiet
stop lying please

i tried to be yours
while the whole world burned
i tried to be yours
while the whole world burned
i tried to be yours
while the whole world burned
i'll forget that it hurt
when i tried
i tried to be yours
Track Name: Driving Fast
you know i've been waiting all this time
throw me a line
are you even by my side
walking home at night
who's to say if i am in or out
at least i stuck around
for now, for now

i'm not driving fast
i don't think if you love me it will last
but wasn't that the fun of it
taking chances and giving in
i'm not on my own
if you listened for a second you would know
this isn't the end of me
nothing you do could make it be

i feel tired when you're not around
i sleep all day, at night i walk around
well you were always on my mind
you're almost on it all the time

i'm not driving fast
i don't think if you love me it will last
but wasn't that the fun of it
taking chances and giving in
i'm not on my own
if you listened for a second you would know
this isn't the end of me
nothing you do could make it be

just look at me
before you ruin me
please
Track Name: Rolling Stop
sometimes i think all i have is goodbyes
sometimes i think i'm poison on the inside
sometimes i do the wrong thing in your eyes
seems like i try so hard i don't realize

a rolling stop to break my own heart
a rolling stop to break my own heart

rolling stop, break my own heart
rolling stop, break my own heart

if you let me, i'd let it all out
but it's heavy to believe in doubt
if you let me, i'd let it all out
but it's heavy to believe in doubt

now, now
i can see it i can feel it now, now
i can see it i can feel it now

now, now
i can see it i can feel it now, now
i can see it i can feel it now

sometimes i think all i have is goodbye
sometimes i think all i have is goodbye
sometimes i think all i have is goodbye
sometimes i think all i have is goodbye
Track Name: Call Waiting
you can't run away this time
even if i said it was fine
it's not fair to leave me like this
wasn't supposed to be hit or miss

call waiting's got me
waiting for a sign
in a mellow summer sadness
you were yellow light
what's the point in waiting around
you're too scared to hold my hand
while the ship goes down

said you'd always be my friend
now you're running from the messy end
next time you leave me here alone
leave behind more than a dial tone

call waiting's got me
waiting for a sign
in a mellow summer sadness
you were yellow light
what's the point in waiting around
you're too scared to hold my hand
while the ship goes down

i'm still under your skin
just one letter and a bowl of cherry pits
i'm still on your mind
if you change it you know
i'll be waiting all the time

you're too scared to hold my hand
while the ship goes down
you're too scared to hold my hand
you're too scared
Track Name: Another Life
i feel you from a block away
i feel you coming up the stairs
i feel you on your bad days
and even when you're not there

what were you thinking of in my room
getting sick on my favorite shoes
was it the days you saw passing you by
maybe a face from another life
well i'm by your side
at least for tonight

will you believe in me
enough to let me be
enough to let me be myself
when i want to be someone else

what were you thinking of in my room
getting sick on my favorite shoes
was it the days you saw passing you by
maybe a face from another life
well i'm by your side
at least for tonight
Track Name: Own
you don't have to leave
choose to stay with me
you don't have to go
i was wrong i know
if there was someone else
i'd have gone to see them
if it was something
i thought i could believe in
i had a dream i was enough
you were a dream you gave your all

i don't have to say
everything's okay
i don't have to fight
if it isn't right
if there was someone else
i'd have gone to see them
i just need something
i know i can believe in
i had a dream i had it all
you're not enough it's not your fault

oh it's better that i know
oh i'm better on my own
on my own, on my own
on my own, on my own
now i know
on my own, on my own
