Track Name: In Between
Ooo,

I'm still chasing you
Only thing I knew
I'm outside your door, looking for

You,

Tired of all your shit
I'm so over it
Don't come near me now, you know how

You,

Never found your way
I'm supposed to stay
While you carry on, you are wrong

Ooo,

Now you hear me scream
Hear the in between
When you're out of sight, I'm alright

I'm still chasing you
I'm still chasing you
I'm still chasing you

Track Name: Lexington
Sun stay down for a little while longer
I'm not quite ready to feel your rays
Coffee grounds will be little bit stronger
Just let me hide under this blanket today

Can't you feel the warmth inside
There's gotta be a leak that's drifting on by
I know that it's not much but it's what's on my mind

Lexington
Show me how you fall asleep
Lexington
Let it wash all over me
What once was
Surrounded by apostrophes
All I want
Try to make it real for me

Coldest winter, though I might be wrong
And this radiator leaves a constant din
I still hear you trailing off in a fog
Staring and laughing at each and every little thing

Won't you lay and rest your head
In the room overlooking the street and the flower beds
For what that used to mean, well memories are what's left

Lexington
Show me how you fall asleep
Lexington
Let it wash all over me
What once was
Surrounded by apostrophes
All I want
Try to make it real for me

Lexington
Show me how you fall asleep
Lexington
Show me how you fall asleep
Lexington
Show me how you fall asleep
Lexington
Show me how you fall asleep

Track Name: House In Santa Barbara
Am I stuttering
Can you hear me clearly
'Cause my head's been laced
With some pipe dream cocaine

Had it sewn up closed
Told damn near no one
But they all got their's
So I'll let you know 'cause

I'll do anything
I'll do anything right now
For that house in Santa Barbara
Someone tell them please
'Cause I'll do anything right now
For that house in Santa Barbara
For that house in Santa Barbara

When I find my girl
And she'll have an accent
From around the world
And I'll ask how did that happen

And she'll say I'm gold
When nobody listens
Stay away from me hope
You won't find me wishing 'cause

I'll do anything
I'll do anything right now
For that house in Santa Barbara
Someone tell them please
'Cause I'll do anything right now
For that house in Santa Barbara
For that house in Santa Barbara

Lyrics by Kevin Garrett (ASCAP)
Track Name: If Hope Could Talk
You were always one to say
Little phrases every day
I believed all of it
Thought that love was in the air
Turns out it was everywhere
I just caught some of it

But we tried, yeah we tried, oh we tried to work it out
But the hurt from the work and trying never leveled out
I can always come on back for more but I'll still have my doubts
So I think it's only better girl if we knew what we were all about

If hope could talk it'd say back the hell off
From all of your love or whatever you thought it was
If peace could speak it'd say rescue me
I'm trapped in a cage and there's no escape

I might wake up in a sweat
Dream of days when we first met
How's it feel, happiness
Silence used to work its charm
When you'd try to get ahead but
Now we're stuck wanting less

But if it rains every day from here on out it might be worse
Though the pain I've endured from staying babe it really hurts
I'm not certain of the future but I know just how this works
Did we ever really love each other girl, I really beg to defer

If hope could talk it'd say back the hell off
From all of your love or whatever you thought it was
If peace could speak it'd say rescue me
I'm trapped in a cage and there's no escape

Lyrics by Kevin Garrett (ASCAP)
Track Name: Jane
Jane didn't give me the time to look around
She already asked if I landed while I was on the ground
Well I'm going to Nashville, but I'm stuck in Charlotte right now
She said let me know when you get in, so she could sleep sound

This plane won't fall
But I won't call
We're safe and all
But I won't call

Maybe this time we could break
Apart from the mold that they make
For all those old souls that they say grow old from the first day
I don't need that to be sure
I want to see you at least once more
So if you won't hold onto nothing close, then we'll be okay

Jane I never told you that I was coming over that night
The things we had spoken about were not sitting with me right
Knocked on your door and your windows felt stones I had thrown at the light
But you never answered and I'm miles above you in flight

This plane won't fall
But I won't call
We're safe and all
But I won't call

I'll write it down for your sake
I don't want to keep you awake
When you arise by tomorrow's time I'll be far away
I'll never hold anymore
The weight's not what I signed up for
I'm not the guy that stands idly by so leave me Jane

This plane won't fall
But I won't call
We're safe and all
But I won't call

I'll write it down for your sake
I don't want to keep you awake
When you arise by tomorrow's time I'll be far away
I'll never hold anymore
The wait's not what I signed up for
I'm not the guy that stands idly by so leave me Jane
I'm not the guy that stands idly by so leave me Jane

Leave me Jane

Lyrics by Kevin Garrett (ASCAP)
Track Name: Thomas Edison
We were looking at the world
Our hands tied up in curls
Of knots that we could not unfurl
So we stood, the world's pearl

And we tried to breathe it in
Burst in flame like paraffin
And much to all the stars' chagrin
There was more dust that settled in

We saw the sunlight rising
Through the dark skyline
Through the night we were hiding
From that old bright light

We were soaked to the bone
As bodies trembling in snow
Holding hands as if we'd known
That keeping close won't keep us cold

Dreamt of rising from the depths
As soldiers bound in our duress
Watching hardened drops of lead
Sink into our softened flesh

We wanted so damn badly
To be heroes that night
But our minds fought gladly
We couldn't hold up the fight

And we kept on trying trying tonight
Nothing could keep us out of that light
We kept on trying trying tonight
We kept on trying trying tonight

But we thought that we could win
Just like Thomas Edison
Did with all his inventions
And we had nothing to begin

Every time we struck a chord
Back to our old drawing board
Fighting fire with a sword
We were melting with each word

We saw the light in our pathway
But it was miles away
We were all going that way
We could have lasted for days

And we kept on trying trying tonight
Nothing could keep us out of that light
We kept on trying trying tonight
We kept on trying trying tonight

Lyrics by Kevin Garrett (ASCAP)
Track Name: Don't Slow Me Down
When you came through I was afraid
So I took a step the other way

Standing amongst my friends in a room filled up
With mirrors and my reflections to keep me sane

I wonder what she's writing
She probably got excited
Oh when I came around
I know just what you want
So go ahead and shake things up
But oh please don't slow me down

We never were the type to mend
We'd push to see how far we'd bend

I threw out all your records when you left
But I'm anxious to see what of mine you kept

I wonder what she's writing
She probably got excited
Oh when I came around
I know just what you want
So go ahead and shake things up
But oh please don't slow me down

Lyrics by Kevin Garrett (ASCAP)
Track Name: Phonebook
I called all of
The Magdalenes
In the phonebook hoping
That I would see
The one in the magazine
She was there last week
In a red dress
Under the willow tree

But since that happened
My luck's ran out then
With the pages turning
Thanks to gusts of wind
She was older than I
Born in '89
But I've been pretty wise
For my age

Ooh
And it's a slap in the face
You'd be amazed
At what life I gave
Ooh
And if you come across a name
Well I won't beg
But please don't go away

Wednesday morning
I woke up sore from
All the running I did
The night before
Thinking what's worse than
Some of your oldest friends
Who'd rather see you in
A great deal of pain

Chased the sidewalk
For 95 blocks
With the crazy idea that
I'd come across
My Magdalene
It was just her and me
What else would if be
If you knew me

Ooh
And it's a slap in the face
You'd be amazed
At what life I gave
Ooh
And if you come across a name
Well I won't beg
But please don't go away

Please don't go away

Lyrics by Kevin Garrett (ASCAP)
Track Name: Wait
Wait
Wait your turn
It just gets longer
It just gets longer
Stay
Away from her
'Cause all you do is hurt
All you do is hurt

She'll be gone
She'll be gone
She'll be gone
If you don't leave it up to her

It
Might be naive
For me to think
She'd ever think of me
Lie
Awake instead
So I'll be in your head
You won't forget me yet

She'll be gone
She'll be gone
She'll be gone
When I'm done cleaning up this mess

I won't ever fight it
I won't ever let you win
Somewhere soon I might be hiding
All that I can do is

Wait
Wait your turn
Wait
