Track Name: I Don't Need You Anymore
Did you know that I’ve been living so well?
It’s not a dream; it’s my reality
You wonder how I’ve been sleeping
I was sinking and drinking for days
Moved on been to four weddings
Grown up still could in many ways

I don’t need you anymore
It’s just a fact; I’m not a wreck with you gone

Have you looked up today?
We see the clouds in different ways
I see a rocket ship
Finally blasted away into space
Where my mind’s been drifting
It’s been floating and flying for days
I drove out to our old hideout
Lit it up let it burn away

I don’t need you anymore
It’s just a fact; I’m not a wreck with you gone
Track Name: Lady Astronaut
Hello hello lady astronaut
You’ve got that style that I dream about
Pick me up when I’m feeling down
I need you here to get me off the ground

Let’s pack our bags forget the plans
We’ll quit our jobs and start a band
Let’s build a castle in the sand
Let’s go to the beach

Oh no oh no lady astronaut
You’ve got my stomach tied up in knots
I used to think that I had no shot
Your love is all that I’ve really got

Let’s pack our bags forget the plans
We’ll quit our jobs and start a band
Let’s build a castle in the sand
Let’s go to the beach
Track Name: That's the Way it Goes
Oh baby why you treat me so bad?
I’ve grown to accept it, but it’s getting in my head
My heart wants your water, but my head knows it’s no good
You’re my living breathing poison yet we’re both misunderstood

And I, Oh I, Yea I, Oh I
I know I tried

That’s the way it goes

It’s so lovely how we’ve come so far
I’ve seen and done lots with you, but I wonder if we’re just a burnt out star

Oh I, Yea I, Oh I
I know I tried

That’s the way it goes

Do you remember the good times when it all just flowed?
You were my waves, my everyday; the sand between my toes

That’s the way it goes
Track Name: Portland
I saw you waiting by the door
I always wondered what you’re waiting for
You were depressed, I guess, a mess
Searching for another shore

I saw you packing all your bags
Didn’t know that I was such a drag
You hit the road alone no home
Headed towards the west coast

Well I’m sorry sweetie we just didn’t work out
You didn’t quite get it so I’ll scream and shout

I don’t wanna go to Portland

I had to hear it from your friends
How you thought I was a dead end
You know we could have talked
Or wrote or spoke said what needed to be said

Why did you break my bong?
Well now that’s really fucking wrong
We went from rad to sad I’m glad
I’ve gotten over being mad

Well I’m sorry sweetie we just didn’t work out
You didn’t quite get it so I’ll scream and shout

I don’t wanna go to Portland

You’re leaving
Got your reasons
Go if you wanna go

I saw you waiting by the door
I always wondered what you’re waiting for
I saw you packing all your bags
Didn’t know that I was such a drag

I don’t wanna go to Portland (no I don’t wanna go)
Track Name: Coming Around
It’s so funny to me
You complain and then you set me free
These things happen
It’s time to move on

But now you keep coming back
Telling my friends lies like they’re fact
Keep on talking
You’re looking so cool (you are so cool)

If I could turn back time
I still wouldn’t apologize

I can’t take you coming around
Shakes my head up and turns me upside down
Less of you, more of me
Ready to get back on my feet

It’s simple
You’re erratic
Short sighted
Over dramatic
Tried to run this town
Then burnt it to the ground

If I could change your mind
I still wouldn’t apologize

I can’t take you coming around
Shakes my head up and turns me upside down
Less of you, more of me
Ready to get back on my feet

If I could press rewind (if I could make you mine)
I still wouldn’t apologize

I can’t take you
I could break you
I can’t take you

I can’t take you coming around (I won’t take you)
Shakes my head up and turns me upside down
Less of you, more of me
Ready to get back on my feet
Track Name: Oh, California
The California seed is growing inside me
Oh what a beautiful dream; it’s cocaine in my bloodstream

I can feel that tree
Stretching and infesting me
And all the green in DC
Can’t compare to one leaf

I promise you
I’ll be home soon

Oh, California you’ve got my soul held in your hands
I try to make you proud of me, but I’m not sure you’d want me back

The California seed is growing inside me
Oh it’s a beautiful scene; it’s cocaine in my bloodstream

I promise you
I’ll be home soon

Oh, California you’ve got my soul held in your hands
I try to make you proud of me, but I’m not sure you’d want me back
Oh, California
California

Just breathe it in
Just breathe it out
Just breathe it in
Just breathe it out

Oh, California you’ve got my soul held in your hands
I try to make you proud of me, but I’m not sure you’d want me back
Oh, California
California
Track Name: Dwell On It
I can’t tell what you’re thinking
I can’t climb inside your skull
So please tell me what’s going on
Please tell me what you want

I’m not sure why I did that
No, I can’t explain myself
So can we live it off?
Just play it down?
Let ourselves move on?
You’re about to lose your head

Life’s too short
Life’s too quick
To dwell on it
Just let it go

But your brain works crazy
Or maybe it’s just me
It’s not the first time; it’s not the worst time
We’re repeating history

My bad I didn’t mean it
Just blame it on my friends
The boys we drank too much we smoked a ton
Fuck we had some fun
We’re about to lose our heads

Life’s too short
Life’s too quick
To dwell on it
Just let it go

Let’s plant us like roses this year
We’ve got some thorns, but our potential is clear
You’ll glow red and glisten
I’ll be that thorn hang on and listen
Do anything to keep you near

Life’s too short
Life’s too quick
To dwell on it
Just let it go
Track Name: Stay
You’re gone
I wish that I knew why I said those things to you
I’m wrong
Can’t justify those words though I’ve said them all before

You said you’re coming back to grab a few things
I’ve never been so scared to tell you how I feel

Stay
We’ll shine another day
We’ll be okay
I swear I’ll make a change

I’ll be honest
I know that it’s not the best for me
But if I were you I’d say “fuck off” and leave
That wouldn’t surprise me

But don’t fight it
You’re everything I want
I won’t hide it
You’re all the things I’m not

You said I could try, but you might just walk away
It’s so simple I just want you to

Stay
We’ll shine another day
We’ll be okay
I swear I’ll make a change

You’re gone
I wish that I knew why I said those things to you
I’m wrong
Can’t justify those words though I’ve said them all before

Stay
We’ll shine another day
We’ll be okay
I swear I’ll make a change

If I were you I’d say goodbye
Track Name: Monster
Close your eyes
Take yourself back to that time

We were just kids trying to fit in
Didn’t know anything about it
I’d wake up with his hands around my neck
So know I’ve got your back

So turn the lights on
I hear the monster he’s coming down my hall
Mom, can’t we bury it?
He finds that treasure you know that I’ll be fighting him

It’s not right
But let yourself move on with your life

We were just kids trying to fit in
Didn’t know anything about it
I’d wake up with his hands around my neck
So know I’ve got your back

So turn the lights on
I hear the monster he’s coming down my hall
Mom, can’t we bury it?
He finds that treasure you know that I’ll be fighting him

Is he coming today?
Is he coming tonight?
Will I wake up again?
Will I put up a fight?

So turn the lights on
I hear the monster he’s coming down my hall
Mom, can’t we bury it?
He finds that treasure you know that I’ll be fighting him
Track Name: Waste All My Time
How did I waste all my time?
Those years I must have been pretty blind
You wanted me stay ordinary
All so you could feel fine

It never crossed my brain
Until Paul lit me up and said it a different way
You never hated me you hated yourself
It’s so sad to finally say

I know I’ll forget you
It’s so strange you thought I’d miss you

You said you didn’t like what I did
Couldn’t respect the things that I love
I let myself do anything for you
In the end it was more than I should

How did I waste all my time?
Those years I must have been pretty blind
You wanted me stay mediocre
All so you could feel fine

I know I’ll forget you
It’s so strange you thought I’d miss you

Yea things are so much better without you
Track Name: Pacific / Atlantic
How are you?
You seem really happy
I miss you
I need you right beside me

It’s been far too long
Can’t wait till you’re out here in my arms

California’s waiting
All the birds are singing
You’re just a few weeks away from me

San Francisco’s freezing
You help me keep believing
3000 miles won’t keep you away from me

It hit me when I cross the Appalachians
Those mountains capture imagination

Why did I leave?
When you’re the only thing I need

California’s waiting
All the birds are singing
You’re just a few weeks away from me

San Francisco’s freezing
You help me keep believing
3000 miles won’t keep you away from me

How are you?
I wanna know

California’s waiting
All the birds are singing
You’re just a few weeks away from me

San Francisco’s freezing
You help me keep believing
3000 miles won’t keep you away from me

I remember the day and the way
You swallowed your pain like a crashing wave
No I won’t see you today, but I’ll see you another
Yea I’ll see you another
