Track Name: Get Well Soon
get well soon
I hope you do
I brought no balloons
cause they just die too

get well soon
a phrase you know
and could hope to ruin
by failing to succeed

got a thought of you
do you have one too?
I hope you think of you
cause we all want you to

but can you heal
from what you don’t see as real
I bet you shook your hand in a deal
to unlearn how to feel

and can you still feel
what you don’t see as truthful or real
but you see me as truthful and real
baby I was the real deal

got a thought of you
do you have one too?
I hope you think of you
we all want ya to

faltering light
we had that night
hardly a fight
when you know I’m right
Track Name: In Ya Too
existing as a favor
and David wore me down
back to being a stranger
inside my dampened town
and all this time it was never ours
but with all my might
and all my heart

I know it’s in you too
and I know it’s in you too
and I know it’s in you too
and I know it’s in you too

dread will calm me back to bed
I place my palm under my head
think of the desert sprawl
empty but still forceful

I know it’s in you too
and i know it’s in you too
and i know it’s in you too
and i know it’s in you too
Track Name: Momentary Love
when I found you
did you find me too
did you find me too?

I couldn’t see right through
quite like I used to
not quite like I used to

discovering what it takes
to keep the memories at bay
here I stay a thousand days
I don’t try to leave, I don’t try to stay

I find my favorite place
and I’m wondering if you’d think the same
this doesn’t keep me sane
but the view up here lessens the pain

now I’ve seemed to fall into
a different point of view
oh will I see through
I’ve got a habit of
momentary love
only momentary love
Track Name: All Right
on the other side there’s light
you were told that last night
if you believed it to be true
would you take your soul there too?

I’m alright, I swear
I’m alright, how dare you

well I wish that I could find
myself again if you don’t mind
I wonder how you now think of me
now that all you’ve got left is the backstory
Track Name: Throw Away Love
now you’re mad at me
bet you thought this couldn’t be
have I broken your image of
obligatory requited love

when we were twenty-three
I took everything you’d said to me
wrote it down, carried it around
til it eventually reached impound
yeah we eventually reached impound

and now you’re mad at me
and I’m no longer twenty-three
I hope you aim to steer free
of doing to someone what you did to me

your friends I thought they were mine too
turned out they left along with you
now I’m a living example of
throw away love

but now can’t you see
how you tripped over your own two feet
baby you got what you bargained for
we all changed the locks on our doors
you ain’t leavin til you grow up some more
Track Name: Expiration Date
if I told you
then i’d have to see you
couldn’t bare to gain you
then only to lose you

I’ve seen it fall through
dissipating truth
I could’ve told you
looks like it’s lose lose

everything great has an expiration date
I think and I wait
for my fate to show up late
with our hands untied
I look you straight where you didn’t cry
I’ve not told you but I am done trying

once I held you
shared my bed too
erased what I knew
to see the decline through

but you just gave up
I’ve now wised up
we broke the good cup
guess that’s unlucky us
Track Name: Hate Ya 2
are you really that full of it?
give your friends the part you already bit
I go to the park where once we had a sit
the light has become dark maybe it was never lit

I don’t know why I love you and I hate ya too I hate ya too
I don’t know why you’d fall through when I’d count on you
I’d count on you

I don’t know why I love you and I hate ya too I hate ya too
I don’t know why you’d fall through I never did for you

have I really only had one role?
the driver's seat and passenger soul
in the car and countless times before
it’s like asking nothing left for something more
Track Name: Cut It
one wasn’t easy
two was a test
three’s got a baby
I know four’s address

numerical ratings
put them to rest
I count in sequence
five was the best

I cut it out, I cut it out
you would be proud, oh you might be proud

two-thousand something
days under our belt
each day remembered
by how I wished I’d felt

I’d give and you’d take away
it was all you could do
hate that I found myself
following suit

thought I cut it out, I thought I cut it out
you would be proud, I thought you’d be proud
but you cut me out, yeah you cut me out
you’d think I’d be used to it by now
Track Name: You Were Once
once in a while
I would like to see you smile
but your numbers hard to dial
at the end of my free trial

though now I’ve learned what it takes
to step right up to the plate
a feeling previously innate
now leaves me feeling less than great

when they ask you if you miss her
have you already thought of an adequate answer?
say, “we were like a sticker,
permanent only for some patch of time”

patch of time, you were once mine
you were once, mine
patch of time, you were once mine
you were once

it was the year that I lost my friend
I knew I’d never be the same again
I know it now and I knew it then
there is only so much you can pretend

I guess with that in mind
you put all of your time in
before depression would win
and you could no longer pretend
