Track Name: Hills of London
Hills of London

Well I tried so hard to listen
but it seems that love’s a lesson I can’t learn
I tried to learn

And I’ve been up hills and wandered
Sat around and looked for places to wait my turn
so I could learn

Well if you love me, won’t you lift me up again?
Well till you love me I’m not going home

And all I ever think about
is I am so much older now than I can take
I tried to fake it

And what if I'm too late now?
And never get the chance to make mistakes
to see what it takes?

Well if you love me, won’t you lift me up again?
Well till you love me I’m not going home

She said "Take my hand"
"I want you to bring me to the hills of London"
"So I can see everything, so beautiful"
Track Name: Desperately
Desperately

Season's always changing
Changing deliberately
Season's overtaking
but not me

He says he's changed his feelings
Changed them stupidly
Can't talk him reason
'cause of the baby

Saying things won't do you good
Since he shows vacancy
Sticking with it is the way to go
Even though you might seem desperately

Timing seems so stupid
You couldn't make this up if you tried
My advice is simple
Don't go down without a fight

Saying things won't do you good
Since he shows vacancy
Sticking with it is the way to go
Even though you might seem…

Oh, I know it'll be so hard
There's one thing you can do
Don't let it get you down, dear
I have faith in you

Saying things won't do you good
Since he shows vacancy
Sticking with it is the way to go
Even though you might seem desperately
Track Name: Stay
Stay

If I ask, "Can I go now?"
I’m trying to reach a compromise
And if I tell you to go now
I’m sure I’d win

And if I call your friends now
would I really find you there as well?
And if I went home now
would you really call me tomorrow?

Go to sleep my love
I’ll see you in the morning
Go to bed my love
My love, my love

So you told me I'd be bored now
And I'm not really sure how this goes
With the words coming out and the secrets coming out
it didn't take long to come to blows

And I'm sorry, so sorry
I could never apologize enough
But I won't back down
when all you want is to call my bluff

Go to sleep my love
I’ll see you in the morning
Go to bed my love
My love, my…
Track Name: Creating Memories
Creating Memories

Stuck inside my head again
Something familiar has gone, my friend
Wondering where this will end

Everything's fine and I'm OK
I'm smiling at every single day
But behind me was a road I can't contain

I'm lost, but I do know the way
But I'm scared that once I'm on my way
I won't remember yesterday

Stuck inside my head again
The road I took is lost and then
I'm waiting where you end and I begin

I look at you with mixed regret
Like a past that I will never get
I'm laughing at things I'm going to forget

Everything's fine and I'm OK
I'm guessing my whole life away
And hoping that those things come back to stay

I'm lost, but I do know the way
But I'm scared that once I'm on my way
I won't remember yesterday

Stuck inside my head again
The road I took is lost and then
I'm waiting where you end and I begin
For my friends I love you, please
My life till now was just a breeze
but now I'm stuck creating memories

Everything's fine and I'm OK
But I can't remember what I did yesterday

Stuck inside my head again
The road I took is lost and then
I'm waiting where you end and I begin
For my friends I love you, please
My life till now was just a breeze
but now I'm stuck creating memories
Track Name: Again & Again
Again & Again

I’m sorry I gave you head trips
even though I know you see a shrink
I’m sorry I don’t know what I should say
but I seem to be missing that thing
which makes you think

And I’m sorry you’re so beautiful
I’m sorry I’m not like other guys
And I’m sorry I seem so pitiful
But to keep you near me, I keep telling lies

I’m sorry I’m not around more
Though you said you needed to take a break
I’m sorry I’m not listening to a word you say
But if you want me to, I think I’ll fake it

And I’m sorry you’re so beautiful
But you should know that I'm not like other guys
And I’m sorry I seem so pitiful
But to keep you near me, I keep telling lies

I’m sorry that I’m not sorry more
I’m sorry all the times I tried to soar
I’m sorry I’m trying to see things through
But I’ll never apologize for loving you

And I’m sorry, but you’re the only one
who makes me feel like a man
Track Name: Untitled
Untitled

"Who's tear is this?" you said
"I don't want you around no more"
Four in a row, I'm fifth
Well, that's all I need to know

Have you ever wondered why it is that we're alone?
Well I'm sorry for the issues, babe
I won't leave you on your own

It won't be easy, but it's fine
They'll come right back to you
You won't believe me, that's all right
But I'll prove it, next to you

Say you live to live alone
That there's no jobs just adventures
Those are really great words, my dear
Too bad you got all those vultures

Would I like to see you smile?
Well you know of course I do
But saying you're dead inside
is not gonna pull you through

Never trust us
Never tell us no
Never leave us
Never let us go
Never leave us, no

It won't be easy, but it's fine
They'll come right back to you
You won't believe me, that's all right
But I'll prove it, next to you

Would you deceive me?
That's all right, I'd do the same for you
Put me to blame and start a fight
And there's nothing I can do
Track Name: Him is Me
Him is Me

You were told when you were younger
Exactly how life would turn out to be
So when you got left for another
Holes appeared in you, easily

Yesterday was a year ago
When he asked if you wanted to stay
He didn't mind you leaving, no
He's all right with driving you home
In the middle of the night
On a Saturday

He's okay with you sleeping over
He's okay with what you want this to be
He's okay with a three-leaf clover
I know
'Cause him is me

The same old talks so you're sure he knows
That you see love and sex as rhyme
But it makes him feel like you're letting go
One agonizing minute at a time

If space is what you really need
Then he will give you the sky itself
But please don't ask him to secede
And please don't make him plead
It's beneath him
Beneath oneself

He's okay with you sleeping over
He's okay with what you want this to be
He's okay with a three-leaf clover
I know
'Cause him is me

"Don't pin a label on us, I think I'm not quite there"
He won't mind what you call it dear
He'll stay here
I swear

He's okay with you sleeping over
He's okay with what you want this to be
He's okay with a three-leaf clover
I know
'Cause him is me
Track Name: Shut Up Already
Shut Up Already

So I called you up
Could tell you’d been crying about me
And I only made it worse
By telling I’ve been lying
I hate me (sometimes)

I can’t solve this by words
Can do only harm
I’m not a big help
Can’t propel this thing into outer space
So I hope this helps

I shouldn’t have said all those things to your sister
I realize that now
But when I’m mad, I’m mad at myself
For trying you out

I can’t solve this by words
Can do only harm
I’m not a big help
Can’t propel this thing into outer space
So I hope this helps

I hope this helps
Track Name: Wishing Woulds
Wishing Woulds

Spring in Paris
She brings me breakfast every day
Off to classes in the morning
That's okay, I won't stay

Boats in Boston harbor
I'm doing the best I can
But when she leaves me in the morning
I feel like I'm the one who ran

She'll pick you up and pull you around
till she's sure you'll see
That the only way out
is to be someone you should be

Wake me up, I need you to wake me up
Like I told you last September: "Please leave me in November"
Then come December and I need to wake up

Downtown London
She took a train to come see me
"Right then, leave," she says
"'Cause you're no good for me"

This college town in Belgium
Is all she ever sees
Yeah these buildings are great, my dear
But they're just no use for me

So much goodbyes and so much to say
She asks "How long you're here for?"
And gets mad at one more day

I need you to wake me up
Like I told you last September: "Please leave me in November"
Then come December and I need to wake up
Won't you wake me up?
When I met you in September and kissed you in November
Then came December and I need to wake up
(or keep dreaming)
Track Name: B.M.M.
B.M.M.

Hey I saw you whisper
Hey I heard you smile
Please try and feel the same for me
It'll maybe be a while

As I can’t help thinking about
All the things we used to do in July
Down by the lake, with all of your friends
Days seemed to fly right by

But you turn around and talk to me
And I don’t like it all that much
So when I finally interrupt you and have your attention
I can tell you it’s as such

It started in fall and you were the same
But now that you're gone, these feelings remain
So why don’t you just come and blow my mind?

And as we finally moved on
After all these years
Of heartache and abstinence
Of confusion and confidence

So when you turn around and talk to me
And I don’t like it all that much
So when I finally interrupt you and have your attention
I can tell you it’s as such

It started in fall and you were the same
But now that you're gone, these feelings remain
So why don’t you just come and blow my mind?
Nothing is sacred and nothing is true
And no one's around except for you
And I can’t wait for you to come and blow my mind

Hey I saw you whisper
Hey I heard you smile
Please try and feel the same for me
It'll maybe be a while
Track Name: Of All The Things...
Of All The Things...

Of all the things inside your head
Don't you mess around with worries
Don't you mess around with me

I understand the things that I had said
But we're clearly in a hurry
So don't mess around today

It's these angry thoughts that are melting away
It's these bags I brought that will prompt you to stay
It's this angriness inside you
that will be your friend and guide you
But it won't make this go away

Of all the things inside your head
Will you mess around with worries?
Will you mess around with me?
