1.
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
2.
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

Temporary 03:32
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
4.
Smoke 03:16
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
5.
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

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

1993 03:30
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

Family Photo 02:57
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
9.
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
10.
Telephones 03:09
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
11.
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
