Track Name: September 22nd (Only The Start)
Can’t stop looking at your face
Staring across the room
Wanting to talk to you
But not knowing what to do
Inching closer
Taking this slow
We’ve got time, yeah we’ve got
Oh we’ve got time

I should leave, things probably won’t go my way
But your lights were so bright
I couldn’t stay away

Come on let’s see how this goes
I mean how bad could it be
We’re already friends
And it’s only the start
It’s only the start

We said we’d see each other next week
Who knew that would be a lie
Cause you were gone
And so was I
Track Name: October 6th (Fire Docks)
What am I supposed to do with my life
Look at her and I sitting by the fire docks

On the telephone
I know you’re far
At least you’re not stoned
I know you used to
Staring at these white walls
They get played after a while

What am I supposed to do with my life
Look at her and I sitting by the fire docks
I’m hiding by myself
I’m hiding by myself
I’m hiding by myself
Track Name: November 24th (I Hate Radio)
Last night I drove for the first time
I didn’t get very far got a long ways to go
Got a long ways to get home
So I turn on the radio
To a song I’ve heard a thousand times before
I unconsciously sing along
Then you roll by in my mind again
Your hair tangles my heart
It’s skipping beats sitting here waiting wishing on you
What should I do
Cause I’m so in love with you
Track Name: December 18th (I Told You I'd Wait)
I think I told you once that I could wait forever
I was so fucking wrong
I try to pass the time waste the days write another song
It sucks, you tell me that you liked it
I always wondered if you lied
But why would you need to lie
I would believe every word you say
God I fucked up this time

Why do I care why does this matter
I’m sorry for wasting your time

I was surprised with all the times you had stood by me
Even when I did you wrong
And I can’t seem to figure out
The best way to get through this but I wish
I could let it go
And in a year or two maybe I’ll know what to do
Then we could try to figure this out
Cause right now my vision is faded
I can’t see you gotta help me out

Why do I care why does this matter
I’m sorry for wasting your time
Track Name: January (Why Is It So Cold)
You look so cold, here take my jacket
It’ll keep you warm for now
And if you want to, hold my hand
It’ll keep away the cold from our hearts

And we’ll go to the park, lay down in the grass
I got snow all over my ass
And I’ll (you’ll) play my (your) guitar
And you’ll (I’ll) sing along
And we’ll write a new song together

Now it’s getting dark, I should probably go home
But I keep getting lost in your eyes
Now the moon’s coming out, I really need to get home
But you look so beautiful tonight
My parents will worry, they’re so uptight
I know but stay it’ll be alright
But I really need to get home

I’m so sorry
(It’s alright, It’s alright)
Didn’t want you to worry
(It’s alright, It’s alright)
You should probably go
(It’s alright, It’s alright)
Let’s just lay here in the snow
Track Name: February 14th (River Apartments Suck)
I stood in the rain
You stole my umbrella last time you came over
You always leave me in the cold
You always leave me all alone

I wanted to watch cartoons
You said that you wanted to watch the news
So we made a compromise and watched Saturday Night Live
And I cried in the bathroom
But not because of you
Yeah I’m over you
I swear

If I had stayed nothing would be the same
If I had stayed nothing would be the same

And that apartment
The one that you wanted to get downtown in the pearl
Where we could hang out by the water
And I could play my guitar for you
Yeah I could write another song for you
Yeah you’d make me write another song for you

But nothing ever seems to work
(I really don’t know)
The way that you planned it
(How bout we just take it slow)
The way you expect it
The way it’s suppose to
(I just want this to go)
The way that you want it to
Track Name: Sometime in March (Will You Wait for Me)
I can never let you go
You’re apart of my soul
You're the best girl I know
I texted your friends but they still haven't responded
Why do they always make me feel like shit
I’m sorry to say that I’m not the one that you wanted
But I guess I’ll just have to trust it will work out in the end

All of our friends are off on some distant planet
And we are alone in some basement again
And every time I look at your California eyes
I can’t help but to do a little grin

Remember the time that we both said we wanted to leave
Then you pulled around and you tugged on my sleeve
And you said to me those words I can’t stop repeating
Trust is a two way street will you wait for me
Oh trust is a two way street will you wait for me
That’s why I’m standing here
Track Name: April 1st-31st (Forgive Yourself)
You’re only happy when you’re in my bed
You’re only scared when you get stuck in my head
And you say that you would rather be dead
Then have to eat another slice of bread

I wanna go back to your house
I want you to wear that pretty blouse
You know the ones with all the flowers
When I’m with you I stare at you for hours

What should I do
What should I do

You’re scaring all the ones you love
But you want them to get better too
So just learn to forgive yourself
Then maybe they could learn to forgive you

What should I do
What should I do
I wanna save you
I wanna save you

You’re only happy when you’re in my bed
You’re only scared when you get stuck in my head
And you say that we should both be dead
Cause we ate another slice of

BREAD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

YOU’RE ONLY SAFE WHEN YOU’RE INSIDE MY BED
YOU’RE ONLY SCARED WHEN YOU GET STUCK IN MY HEAD
AND YOU SAY THAT WE SHOULD BOTH BE DEAD
CAUSE WE ATE ANOTHER SLICE OF BREAD
Track Name: May 25th (Why Should I Wait)
I took a sharpie and a white washed wall
I scribbled my dream from last night
But all I saw was your face and
A mistake I made a year ago
Dreaming of spaceships flying away
Wanting you to go but letting you stay
Five days till I’m gone from this hell
And then I’ll be in a new place

Are you kidding me right now
I’ve been ready to go for the past five hours
You really need to calm down
You’re crashing just like the twin tower

Maybe if I stand alone
Everything will just stay the same
Maybe if I stand alone
Everything will just stay the same
Track Name: June 2nd (We Cool?)
I've been living in this town
Watching you run around

Let's just play our little school games
And hide behind all of our shame

It's as easy as 1 2 3
You should just run away with me

Baby if you come outside
Then I wouldn't have to hide

Baby you know how much I love you
Track Name: July 23rd (Best of "Friends")
Said we needed to talk
I don’t know about what
But you said you said you said it was serious
Asked me what are we doing
I said I don’t know but I’m still so I’m still so happy
So if you wanna leave I would understand
And give you some time to breathe

And I’ve been waiting for something to happen
But it’s not happening
And you’ve been listening to me talk for almost a year now
And it’s not helping no

I love you
I love you
I know you do
I know you do

La da da da

And I’ve been listening to you talk for almost a year now
And I’ve been waiting for something to happen
But it’s not happening so I guess we can just be friends
Track Name: August 18th (Another Wasted Year)
I went down to the city docks
Where I first met with tears in your eyes
And all I could do was stare blindly
You were always behind me
And I was right by your side
Now we stay inside all day
You and I are wasting away

You’ll go and I’ll stay and we’ll say everyday
This is my song for you

You were a big pile of rocks
I picked you up and put you in my car
And then we drove pretty far
You were a big red balloon
I held you so tight you popped
And now you’re blue
And all our friends will leave us in the end
You and I we’ll be alone again

I’ll go and you’ll stay and we’ll say everyday
This is my song for you

I can’t
Get past
I don’t wanna
Put this pressure on you

So I pick up my guitar and I write another song
And I tell my friends to play along
(Here we go!)

This has been
This has been another wasted year
Another wasted year

I'll go down to the city docks
Where I first met you
With stars in your eyes
