Track Name: We Were Friends
we were friends round the clock
playin with the sidewalk chalk
we were friends round the clock
even when i drank a lot

we were friends in the street
in the slide
in the swing
now i'm afraid for you

we were friends right away
waterfight everyday
we were friends right away
even when i went away

we were friends right away
up until this very day
now i'm afraid for you

yet i feel bad about myself
feel guilty
but i don't want to know
what you miss
as i throw it all away

that's the way i see it anyway

we were friends all the time
i remember summertime
up until it had to end
when i'd wreck my life again

and if god gave a damn
it would be only me
cause i'm afraid for you

yet i feel bad about myself
feel guilty
but i don't want to know
what you miss
as i throw it all away

that's the way i see it anyway

and we're still friends today
i don't care what doctors say
you could have my body too
if it bought more time for you

still have the pictures
you and me were six years old
the polaroid
doesn't lie, but i hope
that we both never die so
we can play again
so we can play again
so we can play again
Track Name: If We Try
hey there mr. madman
won't you cheer up cause i hear you're feeling sad
yeah, with that look
she'd go with any other guy now

with my knees weak and my head strong
gonna get me a drink and make a phonecall
yeah, to that girl
she'd go with any other guy now

don't stop when im not sleepin
she thinks that im a creep and
i don't think i can take this anymore
anymore

make it if we try
we're gonna make if we try
we're gonna gonna make it to the
other end of
feelin not so bad

with my head down and my spirits up
i'm the talk of the town, so what
yeah, with that girl
she'd go with any other guy now

how can we tell
how can we tell
how can we tell
how can we tell
how can we tell
how can we tell
how can we tell, oh
Track Name: Limbo
She said

don't wait
I can't think of any other way
now I'm stuck inside
Limbo
Everything is grey and kind of cold
and my tears are like

little bitty razor blades
cutting all the flowers
they will never grow again
'cause spring will never come around
Track Name: Dynamite
love
find a song, find it wrong
could be right
dynamite, dynamite dynamite

life
is a bitch, scratch an itch
could be right
dynamite, dynamite, dynamite

feel so bad i don't know what to do
feel so bad for stuff i didn't do
feelin narcissistic, feeling pessimistic

feel so good i barely keep control
feel so good i want everyone to know
feel i'm in a daze, cause i have not slept for days

lost out to sea, in a storm
every cliche i adore
dynamite dynamite dynamite

down semitone, rock and roll
black and white is all i know
dynamite, dynamite
Track Name: There's Nothing Left to Say
too many nights
when i don't know what to do
so i sit down with my pencil
and i stew and use a stencil

to breed all the love i can
all the love that i can bring
floating love for you and me
floating love for you and me

too many nights
do i watch the city lights
and i know that i will crack
when it's my time
when it's my time

will i live or will i die
all the love that i can breed
floating love for you and me
floating love for you and me

i know it's stupid to think i don't care
but you'd be right cause i really don't care
i think with all my heart
i can't believe i'm still here
i think i should stop
it's better that nobody knows

too many nights
do i go to bed alone
i can't see her, i can't feel her
but i know she's there for me

and we will waste our days away
making putty out of clay
till there's nothing left to say
till there's nothing left to say
