Track Name: No Matter What It Takes
You'll have to forgive me
I just don't feel like dancing tonight
the stars aren't quite shining
the moon isn't quite bright

some bonds are stronger
stronger than our mistakes
I'll be your friend
no matter what it takes

In another life in another world
you might be my girl
but since that can't be
will you forgive me?

some bonds are stronger
stronger than our mistakes
will you be my friend
no matter what it takes?
Track Name: Lost & Found
I gave you something of mine
for safe keeping
all you said was "no take backs"
now I'm feeling the loss
want it back at any cost
how could you be so selfish, baby?

I fall down all the time
I split myself in two

and I can feel you even when you're not around
I'm just digging through the lost and found

Now I'm on your trail
I won't be derailed
wanna feel like myself again
no more sleepless nights
no more lost appetites
no more death by offhand remark

I fall down all the time
I split myself in two

and I can feel you even when you're not around
I'm just digging through the lost and found
Track Name: Our Mistake
You didn't know what you were getting into
when you picked me up
I can get my feet wet too
when I'm feeling up
I'm not just that sad boy you thought you knew

well guess again, guess again
I wanted to be more than friends

You never wanted to stay
but I still had a good time
It wasn't the best idea
but goddamn it was ours
something got in the way
everything turned sour
was it your mistake
was it mine
or was it ours?

I guess I'm just a little confused
we bit off more than we could chew
there's nothing left for us to do
but to bid each other adieu

I know what I want
and I always play for keeps
will you hold that against me?

You never wanted to stay
but I still had a good time
It wasn't the best idea
but goddamn it was ours
something got in the way
everything turned sour
was it your mistake
was it mine
or was it ours?
Track Name: Lookin'
Do you ever talk to yourself
as you walk across the street
just like I do?
Do you daydream about somewhere new?

When you close your eyes
do you see the movies of your mistakes?
Do you wish you could apologize to every face?

Failed conversations litter the floor
you'll never be what they're lookin' for
Failed conversations litter the floor
but you'll always be what I'm lookin' for

I can tell by the way
you look at yourself in the mirror when you wake
something ain't right
with the way the light enters your eyes

Failed conversations litter the floor
you'll never be what they're lookin' for
Failed conversations litter the floor
but you'll always be what I'm lookin' for
Track Name: Anything Better to Do
I'm happy to apologize to you
to deny you the pleasure of putting me through
one of your little games
the kind you like to play
to make you feel ok about yourself

you oughta know by now
that I don't let anyone bring me down
let alone small people like you
haven't you got anything better to do?

Of course you're not big enough
to admit your emotions got the best of you
you lash out to cause others pain
it's all you know how to do

you oughta know by now
that I don't let anyone bring me down
let alone small people like you
haven't you got anything better to do?
Track Name: Teenagers Need to Fall Down
Love -- the very word provokes disgust
you've got a new set of keys in your hand
you're gonna kick up some dust
but when you're back's against the wall
those wheels won't take you far enough at all
you can't run from your heart

teenagers need to fall down
you ain't got nothing until you've been on the ground

I bet you're in your room right now
scouring your contact list for some way out
but you won't find much help in there
cause every kid you know is fucked up and helpless
the whole generation's a mess

teenagers need to fall down
you ain't got nothing until you've been on the ground
Track Name: Way I Felt Before
I made a big mistake
and I raked myself over the coals
for six months before I could give myself a break
nothing's new
I've been this way since I was two
it's all that I can take

and all I can say is
I don't want to feel the way I felt before anymore

I feel a change
everything begins to rearrange
this feelings are so strange
no sense in holding on
to anything once it is gone
time to find some new fun

and all I can say is
I don't want to feel the way I felt before anymore
Track Name: I Wish You'd Stayed
What ever happened to us?
We used to play wiffle ball all summer long
in your backyard with your weird little brother
and his weird little friends
then your mom would make lasagna
we'd play video games until 4 AM
life was good back then, my friend

but your parents took you away
I wish that you'd stayed
the memories won't fade away
I wish that you'd stayed

So many years between us
I just don't know how to reach out
the distance fills me with self doubt
Do you share the same memories as me
of the Ramones and street hockey?
Study hall together was pretty sweet.

but your parents took you away
I wish that you'd stayed
the memories won't fade away
I wish that you'd stayed
Track Name: You're Wrong
I heard you say I'm wasting my time
but you don't understand my life
you think I want a spot in your world
that I need money to be satisfied

but I know you're wrong

you're so quick to swallow
whatever dangles by your nose
and the path is so easy to follow
it leads wherever you've been told to go

but I know you're lost
Track Name: When Are You Gonna Come Back?
once upon a time
you were my partner in crime
you understood my mind
why did you have to go?
now everything is at a standstill
everything is in the landfill
I just gotta let you know

you left me on this coast
you left me all alone
you left me with your ghost
you're so cold

when are you gonna come back?
we got so much left do
I'm not the same without you

I know you're living the life that you want over there
you probably don't want me in your hair
but I just can't hold my tongue
you threw our band in the dump
I gotta say it wasn't fair

you left me on this coast
you left me all alone
you left me with your ghost
you're so cold

when are you gonna come back?
we got so much left do
I'm not the same without you
