Old Keys 02:36
I threw some old keys away I took them off my chain and just threw them away That was yesterday What was I keeping them for? Never again even see their doors Don't need them no more Now I'm ready to explore Get yourself more free Throw away those old keys

when u call my name, ooh when u call my name, yeah I was lost and now I'm found only need to spin around on a state of flight that's homeward bound it's the plans: I can't stand em rollin' out of hand I demand em when u call my name, ooh when u call my name, yeah its a race to the center couldn't set my pace but I meant ter, yeah if you change your direction can you earn your spot or will you bench it when u call my name, ooh when u call my name, yeah I was lost but now I'm found only need to spin around on a state of flight that's tied and bound

Took My Time 03:01

I broke down After I found a strand of your fur On an old shirt Packed away since before I split with her I'm thankful she and I stayed friends For a while I could walk you on the weekends But now we live in different states And I don't know when I can walk you again To bond with a creature so deeply Without words To long for a way to tell them you miss them

Heat Island 03:57
I would kick off the covers If there were any left on the bed I would take off my clothes If I wasn't already naked When it's cold you can bundle up, layer But what do you do When there's no way to get cool? You give me reason to save up And reason to spend my last cent How long have I held you To make up the weight of all I've spent When it's cold we can bundle and hold each other But what do we do When there's no way to get cool? We're doing everything that we can But our love makes a heat island

I love it when you laugh at me Chuggin' chocolate milk before we go to sleep Sometimes I wonder if I like the things I do Or if I'm always putting on a show for you When things get serious I never think I'm smart enough When things get sad I always start to act tough So if I can help it I try to keep it light Cuz if I can make you laugh it makes me feel alright I love it when you laugh, love it when you laugh at me I just want you to think I'm funny

I listened to a two minute song of yours Half a dozen times driving home from the store Pressing rewind as if I'd find the exact place Where my passion fell behind Two plastic spools, warped by heat Romantic fool flying down the street I see you once a year now Twice if lucky But when I hit play we're sippin' Ale 8 in Kentucky Before we knew what had begun In sleeveless t-shirts soakin' up that sticky sun Two plastic spools, warped by heat Romantic fool forgetting to eat

Payless 03:35
when you're feet were up on the dashboard when I looked over and the water roared when doubt was just a word I heard sometimes when my smile was innocenter and your garden hadn't grown rev the engines, kick up stone when we talk on the phone, like, I never understand I just want a life where i pay less well, I got another letter something's wrong with your credit card and they said they're gonna find you hiding in the dark when your feet were up on the dashboard I've been changing just a little moving on in more ways than one when we meet over lunch, like, I never understand I just want a life where I pay less

Like Pretend 01:54
Step outside and fell the sun So warm on your head Step back in, shut the door Get back into bed I know sometimes it must feel like pretend But it's okay, I'll still be your friend You drop off a resume Next day get a call When it's time for your interview Stay home, watch 'Chopping Mall' I know sometimes it must feel like pretend But it's okay kid, I'll still be your friend A picture shows up on your feed Of us years before You almost call me, but instead You scroll through some more I know sometimes it must feel like pretend But it's okay, I'll still be your friend

Like a Gift 03:23
There's no excuse for getting so heated Over some dumb shit I can't control I know I should leave Come back when my head's cool Try not to let the shame take hold And you're so patient with me More so than I've been able to be i'm stormy and spiraling And you're here for me smiling Am I just going to be forever 23 When you get used to being mistreated Common courtesy feels like a gift So when I receive Such sweet love from you It's hard to believe I'm worthy of it Am I just going to be forever 23, longing for legitimacy?

I get to work a little late (I need more time) And then I leave a little early (I need more time) Get home and boil some water (I need more time) Dig through the pile of VHS (I need more time) I keep buying these old videocassettes (I need more time) Got so many that I haven't watched yet (I need more time) Did I stop dreaming, or just remembering? When I stop breathing will I leave something lingering?

Me Changing 04:36
tap me on the head it's like I woke up six years later I can still hear every raindrop hit out old front step dreams that I forget because today they seem so ruthless each one I'm living completely to the end faint scream, white sheet over, I think What are we talking about? about me changing I can understand sometimes I ask myself the same things I can never place the blame straight on you and only you but it's dark in here somebody left the upstairs light on and i can feel the spirit bygone and i am being lifted up faint screams, white sheets over, I think What are we talking about? about me changing A little voice told me to wait and hear the rest You get more efficient but you still feel like you're dead what are we talking about? about you changing
14.
You got love in your heart And crumbs in your bed A lie that's crumbling in your head Got a nice guitar Gathering dust Friends you love and love you That you don't trust You try to breathe the blood back in Try to walk through the walls And you can keep busy for so long Try so hard to stay so strong And like a lighthouse, she stands by you But she can't stop what you do You try to breathe the blood back in Try to walk through the walls
