Track Name: Too Good
I think you're too good for me
I think you're too good for me
But girl I'd really like to take you home oh oh oh
I think you're too good for me
I think you're too good for me
The only fear I fear is I'm alone oh oh oh

I wanna run away
To places so much greener
Is that something that you'd like to do with me
I wanna lose myself in countries that I've never been before
Would you like that too
If not it's cool
(If not it's cool)

There are things I'd say to you
There are things I'd say to you
If only I could find the time to speak
And there are things I'd like to be
And there are things I'd like to be
I think my inhibition's reached a peak

Whatever makes you happy
Makes me happy too
What ever floats your boat
It patches my canoe
Whatever warms your fancy
Laces up my shoes
And I see you smiling
I think you're smiling
I'm smiling too

(face melting guitar solo)

But girl I'd really like to take you home oh

I think you're too I think you're too
I think you're too goooooood
Track Name: Our Places In This World (ft. Cara Filley)
I’m in the middle of something
It’s something I can’t understand
I feel the gravity increasing
I’m like a fish dropped on the land
I’m making art I’m not an artist
Cause artists make me insecure
We’re just a lot of lonely people
We'll find our places in the world

So growing up wasn’t exactly what you thought it would be
You’re finding out that second guessing is a natural thing
Every day seems like it has another problem in store
We're lonely people and we wanna find our place in this world

Oh oh oh oh oh oh We'll find our places in the world
Oh oh oh oh oh oh

I’m in the middle of something
It’s something I can’t understand
I feel the gravity increasing
I’m like a fish dropped on the land
I’m making art I’m not an artist
Cause artists make me insecure
We’re just a lot of lonely people
We'll find our places in the world

So keep with it don’t miss an opportunity
Don’t miss a chance to tell your people how much they mean
Make choices that you feel and hold to them strong
We only get one life and it sure isn’t long

Oh oh oh oh oh oh We'll find our places in the world
Oh oh oh oh oh oh

I’m in the middle of something
It’s something I can’t understand
I feel the gravity increasing
I’m like a fish dropped on the land
I’m making art I’m not an artist
Cause artists make me insecure
We’re just a lot of lonely people
We'll find our places in the world


Oh oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh oh

I’m in the middle of something
It’s something I can’t understand
I feel the gravity increasing
I’m like a fish dropped on the land
I’m making art I’m not an artist
Cause artists make me insecure
We’re just a lot of lonely people
We'll find our places in the world

I’m in the middle of something
It’s something I can’t understand
I feel the gravity increasing
I’m like a fish dropped on the land
I’m making art I’m not an artist
Cause artists make me insecure
We’re just a lot of lonely people
We'll find our places in the world
Track Name: Pretend We're In Love
There's no one around to see us
Just the lonely moon
Let's do what we do when we're
Alone in your bedroom

We only have tonight so let's
Pretend we're in love
Let's hold each other tight and we'll
Pretend we're in love x2

We only have this last night
Them I'm going away
I wanna spend a million nights with you
But I just can't stay

We only have tonight so let's
Pretend we're in love
Let's hold each other tight and we'll
Pretend we're in love x2

Oh you know I love
Staring at your closet wall
It's my only place to go
When your boyfriend comes to call

We only have tonight so let's
Pretend we're in love
Let's hold each other tight and we'll
Pretend we're in love x infinity
Track Name: Stranger's Song (Interlude)
(chatter)
Track Name: Brain
My reason to stay awake is gone
Now I'm slipping into sleep
In my dreams I try to recall a time
When I felt anything at all

So many emotions in this moment and I feel none

Don't let me forget
All the things that you said
I will store them in my brain
There isn't any other way

I just need a place to go
A place that has a view
Where only the birds can go
Unless you know a thing or two

Intimidations fade like music from left to right
Because my mind's in stereo
(One two here we go)

Don't let me forget
All the things that you said
I will store them in my brain
There isn't any other way

Let me take one last look around
Before my world comes crumbling down
I know next time I see you it won't be the same
But I knew it was worth it because I came

Don't let me forget
All the things that you said
I will store them in my brain
There isn't any other way

Don't let me forget
All the things that you said
I will store them in my brain
There isn't any other way
Track Name: Surf Song for the Surf Impaired
No one sees us now
No one sees us now
No one sees us now

I wanna sit back
Do nothing every day
I wanna lay back
That's all I have to say
I wanna sit back
Do nothing every day
I wanna lay back
And that's all

No one sees us now
No one sees us now
No one sees us now

I wanna sit back
Do nothing every day
I wanna lay back
That's all I have to say
I wanna sit back
Do nothing every day
I wanna lay back
And that's all

I think its break time
I think its break time
I think its break time
I think its break time
I think its break time
I think its break time
Break time break time

No one sees us now
No one sees us now
No one sees us now

I wanna sit back
Do nothing every day
I wanna lay back
That's all I have to say
I wanna sit back
Do nothing every day
I wanna lay back
And that's all
Track Name: Feast Or Famine
I feel you
I need you
A little more everyday
I feel you
I need you
A little more everyday

I can feel it in my chest
I can feel it in my bones
It’s creeping back inside
my heart is like a stone

With you its feast or famine
and I’m running dry
With you its feast or famine
and I’m running dry
waiting to be satisfied

Your poison
Your poison
It’s driving me away
your poison
your poison
its driving me insane

I can feel you in my chest
I can feel you in my bones
It’s creeping back inside
And soon my heart is gone

With you its feast or famine
and I’m running dry
With you its feast or famine
and I’m running dry
waiting to be satisfied

With you its feast or famine
and I’m running dry
With you its feast or famine
and I’m running dry
waiting to be satisfied
