We spend all our time in chairs Hoping for something new And the problems are always there But you help me work them through With weird science, me & you The drive there's half an hour To share my afternoon But I love to feel your power So I hope I'll see you soon You and your weird science, me & you It weighs me down, on me it weighs But you say to take it day by day I've known you for a year And I think our work is through But I wanna stay right here In this chair across from you Teach me weird science, me & you, me & you It weighs me down, on me it weighs But you say to take it day by day Away, I wanna run away But you say I'm better off this way We spend all our time in chairs Hoping for something new And the problems are always there But you help me work them through With weird science, me & you

Confused 05:12
Conversation started days ago Who knows, who knows When we'll get a moment of our own? Where'd you go? Where'd you go? 'Cause I wanna be your friend But I think that it's the end When you leave me hanging, words are dangling I can't comprehend Why you've even gone this long When you're seeming so withdrawn What am I to you? Can I break through? How can I move on? So confused And used As I occupy the space where nothing's taking place 'Cause boredom Is your bedlam Am I just a comma in the sentence of your life to pass the time? Bubble-thought ellipses take a toll Come and go, come and go What could be as easy as hello? Not so, not so And I'm trying to be kind But I'm waiting on a sign That this is original, not digital Or a figment of my mind Now you're showing me your hand And I think I understand That I'm opportune this afternoon I fit around your plans So confused And used As I occupy the space where nothing's taking place 'Cause boredom Is your bedlam Am I just a comma in the sentence of your life, your life? So confused And used I don't wanna be defined as a note squeezed in the lines When boredom Is your bedlam Am I just a comma in the sentence of your life to pass the time?

Madison 06:15
I shouldn't like you I shouldn't look at you The way I do When you come around But I, I can't help it I can't help that I smile When I see you Smiling around And I'm not sorry I won't feel bad about Noticing All the little things And maybe you won't hear this Maybe you will never know How I feel about you And that's all right with me I remember the time when You let me put on your glasses And I remember they fit terribly But you thought that I looked good And you looked cute in mine And then we laughed We knew that without them we were blind You could go for days Up and down aisles full of Shelves filled with books and You'd be all right And I could watch you With your head down And I won't say anything I don't want to disturb you See I only get short glances Or one side of your face I have to look at you Through everyone else's faces But I always find you I can always pick you out because You'll be standing there With another guy's lips on your mouth Madison, I notice everything about you Sometimes you wear your hair up Sometimes you wear it down And I have pictures of you That you don't know I have And when I look at them I get sad because You've got a boyfriend And he's my friend too And when I see his face I know that I can't be with you Madison, it's not fair You know that I'd do anything So that you would be mine

Jack & Jill 03:41
Always want what I can't have But I continue to climb that hill And I promise that I'll find my way back If you'll be my Jill It's me you haunt with your smile your laugh Whatever is in you, I'll find it, I will And I promise that I'll be your Jack If you'll be my Jill You wore my hat, and with your hand on my back You said, "I'm going home." So I'll pretend that I'll see you again Your picture, my company when I am alone My setting sun, what have you done? Your glance, it gave me a thrill If you only knew I'm mad over you You might be my Jill You said goodnight with your smile bright And gave me only your name It's dumb, I know, to think of you so But I hold on to the fantasy that you feel the same Memory will be the death of me But I can't seem to get my fill A panic attack; I want to be your Jack Would you be my Jill?

Leave 05:38
Look at his face See the scars Of who he was And who you are The past is not In the past 'Cause broken hearts And memories last a while To calm him down You conversate But you remind Him of hate And all attempts To make amends Make him pray For the end So leave him alone, what did he do to you? Leave him alone, all the time and every day Leave him alone, wouldn't he wish for death? Leave him Look at her face Bittersweet All she hides Underneath What once was love Has flown away Replaced by doubts Every day and night To calm her down You hide your head Spend your days In your bed With every hour You waste her time But fail to see All your crimes So leave her alone, what did she do to you? Leave her alone, all the time and every day Leave her alone, no wonder she wished for death Leave her Look at your face Are you surprised Of what you see In your eyes? A man who hurts A man who blames A man who fights A man who aims to harm Now look at her Look at me Fuck yourself We're all we need Shut your mouth Turn your head We're better off If you were dead So leave us alone, what did we do to you? Leave us alone, all the time and every day Leave us alone, what I wouldn't give for your death Leave us alone

English 101 03:57
Day one: you opened up your book and let me begin No fun, it's harder than it looks to read what's within Day one: you teach me my own tongue that I thought I knew I'm undone: it's English 101 when I try explaining you I’m caught by the look in your eye Turn back again and I lost my place And, oh, I promise I'll try Learning the lesson but I study your face And I wouldn't waste your time Teach me to read tonight Finger follows just below the words that you say I linger whenever I don't know the meaning of your ways Day one: you opened up my eyes to show me something new So fun, your English 101, and I love learning 'bout you I’m caught by the look in your eye Turn back again and I lost my place And, oh, I promise I'll try Learning the lesson but I study your face And I wouldn't waste your time Teach me to read tonight As I thumb through your pages Your body assuages my worrying mind When I've got no words for saying What I have been praying for I'm caught by the look in your eye Turn back again and I lost my place And, oh, I promise I'll try Learning the lesson but I study your face And I wouldn't waste your time Teach me to read tonight Learning the lesson but I study your face And I wouldn't waste your time Teach me to read tonight

The Backseat 06:23
Riding in the backseat I see her eyes in the mirror And while tapping her thumbs on the backbeat The road and my mind are getting clearer I wish that I could steer her Would that be such a crime? Our destination is getting nearer So I don't have much time To go on and on and on Would you take me home tonight? Would you take me home tonight? You don't have to be scared If the road isn't there I exit from the backseat And watch her waving hand As she's driving down the backstreet My heart's at her command I wish she'd understand That she's the best I've found And I know she loves her man But I'm not playing around So come on, come on, come on Would you take me home tonight? Would you take me home tonight? You don't have to be scared If the road isn't there Remembering the backseat And her mouth so open wide When I joined in song to act sweet I forgot the pain I hide Now it's only myself I'm beside Not you since you drove away But if you'd take me for one more ride I know you'd want to stay We'd go on and on and on Would you take me home tonight? Would you take me home tonight? You don't have to be scared If the road isn't there You don't have to be scared If the road isn't there You don't have to be scared I will always be there

I was a baby sitting on top of the world I was just a baby, small And I thought if I yelled loud enough I could be the king I could rule it all But times got hard and my voice wasn't loud enough And times got hard and my words weren't strong enough 'Cause a baby can't lift up the world But I try, I try, I try But these dreams won't let me sleep at night I was the only man at the end of the world I was the only one And I was not afraid, so I took off all my clothes Naked in front of no one But what's the use in taking off your clothes if there's no one to love? What's the use in having everything if it's not enough? And I still could not save the world But I try, I try, I try But these dreams won't let me sleep at night Times got hard and my voice wasn't loud enough And times got hard and my words weren't strong enough And I'm still a baby inside And I cry, I cry, I cry But these dreams won't let me sleep at night

Why won't you talk to me Face on computer screen? You're staring right back at me But you never say a word If I'm speaking honestly Think you're making fun of me Though you watch silently Your voice is the loudest that I've heard How did I end up like this? Why are you the one I miss? Why won't you talk to me Face that I can't unsee? I'm waiting impatiently For a voice with a reply Give back my self-esteem Let me believe in me You've taken my sanity Without saying your goodbye How did I end up like this? Why are you the one I miss? Why won't you talk to me? Why won't you talk to me? Why won't you talk to me anymore? Why won't you talk to me? Why won't you talk to me? Why won't you talk to me anymore? Why won't you talk to me Face on computer screen? You're making it hard for me To see anyone but you Will you let go of me? Or is this eternity? How could you start with me With no plans to see this through? How did I end up like this? Why are you the one I miss? Why won't you talk to me? Why won't you talk to me? Why won't you talk to me anymore? Why won't you talk? Why won't you talk? Why won't you talk?

Worship You 05:37
All of your skin The clothes that you're in Do not quite approach what I see in you The waters at night The morning's first light Do not hold a candle to what I see in you, you, you When you were made A gift the world gave To every pair of eyes that would look on you And under your wings You shelter everything That's beautiful, and no one compares to you, you, you So hold me, want me I'll worship you, worship you Hold me, want me I'll worship you, worship you Goddess of dreams So unfair it seems That you should hold me once and then walk away What's real and what's true All this inside you Please return and bless me for all my days, my days, my days So need me, want me I'll worship you, worship you Need me, want me I'll worship you, worship you

Obsessed 07:25
I'm obsessed What the fuck is wrong with me? I'm a mess And it doesn't even matter who she'd be 'Cause I'm out of my mind thinking about her All the time living without her Who am I to think that I could change her life? I'm obsessed Who the fuck have I become? At best She's an image I created of someone And I'm losing it all pretending I know her Hitting a wall and I can't let go A waterfall, I'm drowning in her life She's the best thing ever happened to me She's the best thing ever happened to me She's the best thing ever happened to me She's the best thing ever happened to me She's the best thing, the best thing, the best thing Oh, I've lost control of my life My heart and soul, they did me wrong They did me wrong, they did me wrong I'm obsessed Is this the fuck what I deserve? Unless She's avoiding me to rattle all my nerves And unsettle my heart and stop my hands It isn't smart to mess with a man Who's been apart from love as long as I I'm obsessed And how the fuck can I go on? I confess I don't care if everything I want is wrong 'Cause I want her touch feeling my body In her clutch with her legs around me Not too much to ask for her and I I'm the best thing ever happened to her I'm the best thing ever happened to her I'm the best thing ever happened to her I'm the best thing ever happened to her I'm the best thing, the best thing, the best thing Oh, I've lost control of my life My heart and soul, they did me wrong They did me wrong, they did me wrong When I'm alone her spirit comforts me At times I feel her hands on me Remember her voice that doesn't call me now I have to conjure it up myself Remember the time, the only time we met I haven't forgotten anything When I'm alone, embarrassed, hide my face I have only myself to blame When I'm alone, her spirit taunting me I have only myself to blame When I'm alone, ashamed to show my face I have only myself to blame
