Track Name: Sloppy Love [explicit]
You gave me a sloppy beej in the parking lot of that church
And you were so giggly, it kinda hurt
And that's when I realized, that mine was the selfish kind of love

We went to your mother's house and met her for dessert
She put some coffee on and asked about the service
And It really broke my heart when I said my favorite part was being there with you
Cause we were so far from love and we didn't give a fuck that we knew
Track Name: Paulding Light
I was standing in a cold dark room
I could barely see my hand in front of my face
So I lit a match

I was so tired I could barely move
You put some pills into my mouth and you took my hand
And the whole room started to spin

But you were looking for something I didn't have
You were looking for something I didn't have

You asked a question about the Paulding Light
I said some people think it's traffic but I don't
I don't really think it is

I asked you if you knew the meaning of life
You quoted shit you read in class and it scared me to death
So I took your hand

But I was looking for something you didn't have
I was looking for something you didn't have
Track Name: Temporary
The sound of chattering teeth is something strangely beautiful
I'm not sure what it really means, but it makes life seem fragile

Like we're temporary

The sound of shattering glass reminds me of 17
We were in your father's Pontiac Trans Am going 103
And you hit that stretch of black ice and the car started fishtailing
We started saying our prayers as if we really believed

That we're temporary
Track Name: Smoke
The smoke in that old bar used to make me feel right at home
And since it got shut down lately I don't know where to go

And I know that it's dumb to feel this way
but there's some part of me that's gone away

The meaning of life is whatever you want it to be
And mornings like this I don't want it to be anything

And I know it's dumb to feel this way
but all good things go up in smoke someday
Track Name: Happier Things
If I could be closer to you, all my troubles would be far away
and if I had 900 wishes, I'd trade them all in just for one more day with you

If i could predict the future, I would only predict happier things
but no amount of wishful thinking could ever amount to the way I feel with you
Track Name: Most Birthdays
I saw a kid playing in the dirt
and I thought "hey kid, it only gets worse from here"
I watched as his mother cleaned his face and I thought that was nice
It feels like it was only yesterday that i was in that place

Magic shows don't quite feel the same as they once did when I was just that age but I can sleep all the way through the night without waking up to hear my parents fight
and I'll take that tonight

I drove past the house that I grew up in
And I'm not sure I'm glad I visited back here
It looked different than I'd remembered it
And it brought back way too many things that I'd prefer to forget

Most birthdays don't quite feel the same as they once did when i lived at that place but I can sleep all the way through the night without waking up to hear my parents fight
and I'll take that tonight
Track Name: 1993
You were dancing in the street in a dream I had
It was 1993 in the neighborhood we grew up in
You were so young then

When we had to leave that place for the countryside
I remember I felt so bad cause I couldn't cry
And that was harder than leaving all our friends

For some strange reason I never can forget
How our grandma used to smoke all her cigarettes downstairs in the bathroom
Then spray it with perfume

When I'm at my worst sometimes that smell comes back
And I don't know quite what to think but I'm always glad
Cause for a few moments the world feels right again
And I can fall asleep like 1993
Track Name: Family Photo
Daddy's old piano's been stuck inside my mind all afternoon
It's a shame he never played it
He just let it sit there old and out of tune in the living room
Where it's still sitting today, although he's gone away

That old family photo, who would've known it'd be the last we'd take
And at times I really hate it
Cause it makes me wonder why things have to change the way they did that day
Yet it's there inside that frame, though it's starting to fade
But the memories remain as crystal clear as day

Things have never been the same and they never will again
Track Name: Calendar Page
When there's more fingers on my hand than days until I see you
I will count them down and smile
But for now you're far away on some calendar page
That I won't turn to for a while

So don't tell me that you miss me, cause that only makes it worse
There ain't much you could say that could make this any easier

There's more stars up in the sky even on a cloudy night than I could ever try to see
And there's just as many thoughts and prayers on their way to god and it seems so hard to compete

So don't tell me that you miss me, cause that only makes it worse
Just send up your prayers into that cold frosty air and hope it works
Track Name: Telephones
Sometimes it's hard to play along to a click track
Just like it's hard to love someone who doesn't love you back
These telephones and metronomes always tell me when I'm wrong
But they can't tell me how to sing my songs

The ones I wrote for you I threw them all away
But I can't seem to get them from my tired head today
These memories and television screens they tell me that you're gone
But they can't ever quite convince me to move on

These telephones and metronomes, these memories like television screens, these chemicals and radios only give me so much hope but right now they're all I have to help me cope
Track Name: Brightly (bonus track)
I didn't catch that sunset yesterday
I couldn't find the time but it found me today
It kept reminding me of when you walked away
You were so beautiful but then you left just like a passing day

So now I'm left with all the stars for company
6,000,000 broken little hearts they comfort me
We'll wait around just for another chance to see
The sun arise again to give us hope we need

Shining brightly in my eyes, you woke me up to realize
That these moments come and go just like the wind, the rain, the sun, and the snow

Tomorrow's forecasted to be a cloudy one
And though I love the clouds that don't sound too much fun
You might've said goodbye and told me we were done
This game is over but my life has just begun

Shining brightly in my eyes, you woke me up to realize
That these moments come and go just like the wind, the rain, the sun, and the snow

So go on and enjoy your life, it's going pretty fast
In all of these relationships so few of them will last
Back then these days were future, soon they'll be part of the past
So please just make the best of them oh girl that's all I ask

Shining brightly in my eyes, you woke me up to realize
That these moments come and go just like the wind, the rain, the sun, and the snow
