Anymore 03:57
we live in a world where the best is a test and the worst can not be found for miles cus we hide our mistakes we close the windows and doors we don't even know what makes us smile, anymore my friends say i'm running away from the good things in life and i dont know what for sometimes it's true i'm afraid of the good things cus i know that they won't last, anymore you're nice and i like that but i'm closing up cus i worry that i will let you down this mind of mine takes me all over the place you'll see that's just how it goes, anymore if you stick around you'll see all the obstacles in my brain if you stick around you'll see i don't know a thing, anymore

we called the night with our songs we called the day with our bodies we did not stay very long in the light you did the dishes in the morning you made the coffee you heard the sirens call from out of sight gepetto knew his fairy with wings would soon come along but on that island of pleasure all the words came out wrong there was a suit parade passing by and all of our weaponry was gone but we had eggshell bombs to spare soon after the guilt took over and all of our names were on file suddenly we were aware gepetto knew his fairy with wings would soon come along but on that island of pleasure all the words came out wrong

this city's just a little less pretty without you this city's just a little more gritty when you're gone but now you're moving on and you're playing our songs and i'm here at home feeling blue this ukulele's just a little more quiet without you these songs i sing are just a little more lonely when you're gone and i'm trying to let you go cus babe the world is your show and no one can hold you down i won't mope and i wont cry or let this daydream ditty pass me by but i will soar so high you'll be missing me when i'm gone this girl is just a little bit stronger without you this story's just a little more simple when you're gone oh and if you do come back don't you mess with me cus now that i'm alone i can finally see this lady's gonna go and have a good time without you this honey's gonna make a lotta money when you're gone cus i dont have the time to sit here and wine and there's other fish in the sea oh i won't mope and i wont cry or let this daydream ditty pass me by but i will soar so high oh you'll be missing me when i'm gone

Dollars 04:55
close your eyes and let the world slow down the plastic skies in your lung lick your lips until theirs nothin left but photographs on your tongue think of all the words filling up your mouth the honey drop is almost gone breathe in time deeper than before this one will last beyond the dawn you don't have to wait for it you don't have to pay for it anymore cus the dollars stick on their own feel the floor with broken glass and beer it doesnt cut the way it should stretch your back until its inside out and say the words you never could drain the water cus its cold outside and there are other ways to warm and understand that i am just a child and i have never meant you any harm you don't have to wait for it you don't have to pay for it anymore cus the dollars stick on their own

Hollowbody 03:42
Go tell your mother, go tell your father, go tell your sister, go tell your brother That we are just friends, and we won’t pretend that we’ are in love Take me to dinner but and offer to pay and kiss me goodnight and then walk away Cus we are just friends, and we won’t pretend that we’ are in love Cus I know youre hollow and I know youre dry And I know you’ll follow without knowing why So if youre not full of answers and questions I’ve got to kiss your hollowbody goodbye Ive seen you walkin out on the town youre takin a new girl out on your rounds But you are just friends and you don’t pretend that you are in love I’ve heard you talkin about someone new and I seen the way she looks at you But you are just friends and you don’t pretend that you are in love Cus I know youre hollow and I know youre dry And I know you’ll follow without knowing why So if youre not full of answers and questions I’ve got to kiss your hollowbody goodbye

Theres a space in my brain and its never empty Cus its always occupied by someone new And I know we just met but oh this morning that space Is occupied by you I cant quite remember the things you said In the doorway on your way out But I think it was nice and I’m paying the price Like a child without a doubt even though i know you’re probably just like the rest right now somehow i’m convinced that youre the best for me Theres a space in my brain and its never empty Cus its always occupied by someone new And I know we just met but oh this morning that space Is occupied by you

Again 04:40
i can't believe what you say wanna hear you but i don't know how the souvenirs that you bought me are faded now it's not so hard to fall but i need a little push got so tired of lettin go when i thought i should why would i say it when there's so many who've said it before why would i say it again and again i cross the bridge at the bay catch the sun before it goes i make it back and get out of my day job clothes oh i'm in love with that city but i need a little breath cus i've been pouring my heart till there's nothin left why would i say it when there's so many who've said it before why would i say it again and again
8.
This Is It 03:42
you remind me of someone i once knew when days were younger and time was shy and when we met they bet that we would last a long time although we had not yet begun you and i we may walk the roads together but we end our nights alone so take my hand and please tell me this is easy tell me this will all change in time cus though i'll give you all the space you need i will be bleeding when you cut me with your nightly goodbyes you and i we may walk the roads together but we end our nights alone so please be kind and don't say bad things about me and please clear your mind of all these tears cus if you'll never want me with an open ended heart this is it this is what we get... this is it this is all you get
