Paycheck 03:31
Feel like I’ve known you forever Spent more than one life together And so this is our song I’ve seen you break down to nothing You’ve seen me desperate for something When it’s going wrong Because the love the love the love Oh love it doesn’t pay that much With all the bills and such It’s hard to keep on playing But trust me cause I’m planning baby I’m getting a big paycheck in a couple of days Enough to change the way that you and I have been living baby I’m getting a big paycheck in a couple of days It’s hard to keep on playing it’s hard to keep on playing Oh no So say farewell to the grind Now it’s good times all the time Always gonna work hard for ya always gonna work hard One day we’ll live like we’re something Never forget we came from nothing And now it won’t be long Because the love the love the love Oh love it doesn’t pay that much With all the bills and such It’s hard to keep on playing But trust me cause I’m planning baby I’m getting a big paycheck in a couple of days Enough to change the way that you and I have been living baby I’m getting a big paycheck in a couple of days It’s hard to keep on playing it’s hard to keep on playing Oh no

Wish I could take you home But I can’t let you in Been working all night long And I need more money Just wanna buy some clothes A place to call my own Good things they take some time And we’ll have to wait and see I’m not done with ya I’m not done with ya I want fun with ya And I’m down with you I’m gonna be okay Just need to walk away I know it hurts to wait With time I will come 2 U So let me in your world I wanna be your girl Riding around with windows down With time I will come 2 U Some people look for love Some people dive right in I’m standing at the edge And that’s enough for me Cause when the time is right I’ll let you be my light I will take you everywhere And you’ll look good with me I’m gonna be okay Just need to walk away I know it hurts to wait With time I will come 2 U So let me in your world I wanna be your girl Riding around with windows down With time I will come 2 U

I know about the reasons That you wanna keep her I understand the theory But I don’t wanna hurt no more In my past life I learned what I came here for Now give me something good to keep me coming back for more You think you’re never gonna look again You think you’ll never have to talk it out You think you’ll never have to go back there again Because you got it all figured out Never look again Never look Never look again Never look Write a list of reasons That you shouldn’t leave her And what will she give back to you When you don’t have anymore In my past life I learned what I came here for Now give me something good to keep me coming back for more You think you’re never gonna look again You think you’ll never have to talk it out You think you’ll never have to go back there again Because you got it all figured out Never look again Never look Never look again Never look On the road all alone Don’t know when I’m getting close Got no home to call my own Got to one to hold me close In my past life I learned what I came here for Now give me something good to keep me coming back for more You think you’re never gonna look again You think you’ll never have to talk it out You think you’ll never have to go back there again Because you got it all figured out Never look again Never look Never look again Never look

Musician 04:00
Go on and let me in Go on unlock the door Cause I know you’re inside And I know you’re not telling me everything Because of what you say And what you’re emphasizing And it’s hard to give up all the good times But you’re breaking me down with your lying So we go onto the stairs And we say another prayer I’m all done being played with You know I’m a musician too And I play on my guitar When I don’t know what we are I don’t wanna adore ya I just wanna ignore ya It’s cause of what you do Maybe you’re improvising But you’re filling me up with your bad vibes and big cries And I’ve had enough of your songwriting So we go onto the stairs And we say another prayer I’m all done being played with You know I’m a musician too And I play on my guitar When I don’t know what we are I don’t wanna adore ya I just wanna ignore ya I play my guitar I don’t play people Play my guitar I don’t play people Play my guitar I don’t play people Play my guitar I play my guitar I don’t play people Play my guitar I don’t play people Play my guitar I don’t play people Play my guitar Oh no I’d never play you I’d never play you I’d never play you Ooh

Clothes 03:45
I wanna pull you close baby I wanna pull your hair I wanna strip you down baby I wanna see what’s there When your clothes are all gone gone gone I wanna watch you move baby I wanna see your beast I wanna witness you baby I want you underneath me When your clothes are all gone gone gone Cause you give me something You give me something that I wanted You give me something that I never had before And maybe it’s piece of the mind Or a flash of all of the passion we keep boarded up All I know is that I’ve godda have it So why don’t you roam with me I know we’ll end up where we wanna be I’ll never tell you no I’ll never tell you no I wanna be your ghost baby I wanna haunt your dreams I wanna be the most baby I wanna bust your seams When your clothes are all gone gone gone I wanna be your muscle baby I wanna be your meat I wanna rescue you baby I wanna be your heat When your clothes are all gone gone gone Cause you give me something You give me something that I wanted You give me something that I never had before And maybe it’s piece of the mind Or a flash of all of the passion we keep boarded up All I know is that I’ve godda have it So why don’t you roam with me I know we’ll end up where we wanna be I’ll never tell you no I’ll never tell you no And I’ll never give up And I’ll never say no And I’ll never give up And I’ll never say no So why don’t you roam with me I know we’ll end up where we wanna be I’ll never tell you no I’ll never tell you no

My 404 03:25
Slow down what you running for No one is chasing up behind ya I know what you’re calling for I don’t know why you think I’m wise Can you make me wiser? You’re my 404 The one I’m looking for It’s how I wanna be Moving to that beat Cause you make me feel How I wanna feel So give me something sweet Make me another beat Locked up in a small town It’s hard to put it all behind ya I don’t wanna try, I’m just getting by I don’t wanna understand my head, or your head Can you make me wiser? You’re my 404 The one I’m looking for It’s how I wanna be Moving to that beat Cause you make me feel How I wanna feel So give me something sweet Make me another beat

I don’t have a trust fund I’m not the type to want one Dusty jeans and t-shirt You like it, that’s what I heard Now that you’re my lover Black and white to color Living in a fantasy I don’t want no other You don’t need one either This is our reality We’ve got the luxury of love the luxury of love I’ll give it up, give it all up Give it up, give it all up I hear music now We’ve got the luxury of love Santa Monica pier Racing cars and root beer Long line for the loveseat Up to the top now kiss me Now that you’re my lover Black and white to color Living in a fantasy I don’t want no other You don’t need one either This is our reality We’ve got the luxury of love the luxury of love I’ll give it up, give it all up Give it up, give it all up I hear music now We’ve got the luxury of love

I Go To You 03:12
When I’m worried I can’t find my way to dreaming I don’t wanna fight I just wanna sleep at night Cause there’s times I don’t know what to do And I want you near When the nightmares are too much to bear alone I’m waiting patiently for you Of all the good you’re partial to There’s one thing that you just can’t do You’re never angry, you’re never tired You never judge or stoke the fire But you don’t come to me I go to you I can hear it in your voice over the phone Bad anxieties You know you wear it on your sleeve Your heart Is bleeding all over my sofa And I don’t even mind I’ll clean it up some other time Cause why look for me when I’ll find you Of all the good you’re partial to There’s one thing that you just can’t do You’re never angry, you’re never tired You never judge or stoke the fire But you don’t come to me I go to you Oh, in the night Oh, in the light I don’t wanna call your name I just wanna feel your face close to mine You’re never angry, you’re never tired You never judge or stoke the fire But you don’t come to me I go to you

Brand New 03:56
Seeing you In the studio you were brand new You got your tattoos and your Converse shoes Can’t help but want you so I make a move Please take me there My favorite bar you know exactly where Sit in the corner get a drink to share Eyes are locking we can’t help but stare Seeing you The perfect view I don’t mind the wasted time You make it all feel brand new Come with me I’m going down To the edge I wanna know now How we gonna turn out You like me I like you too I got this feeling of brand new Doo doo doo doo doo Even now I remember talking late and loud About the plans that we were laying down About the music that we’d make somehow, somehow Remembering All the nights I was alone again Keep running circles but this is the end Check the clock it’s time we were just friends Seeing you The perfect view I don’t mind the wasted time You make it all feel brand new Come with me I’m going down To the edge I wanna know now How we gonna turn out You like me I like you too I got this feeling of brand new Doo doo doo doo doo Every day you keep me strong You hold me tight all night long Every day that you do me wrong I’m picking up pieces all night long Come with me I’m going down To the edge I wanna know now How we gonna turn out You like me I like you too I got this feeling of brand new Doo doo doo doo doo

On The Rug 04:54
Take me on the rug Lost track of time I guess I gave it up When the bottom of the bottle came And the pills I took Is this love? Gimme all you’ve got until I’ve had enough Take me on the rug Fibers on my spine Blood starts to come Branded vertebrae This world is so fucked up Take me somewhere else 6am sun’s up and we’re still having fun At night when I cry I’m wondering why we’re everything and nothing And when I wake up I get on my knees and pray Take me on the rug A celebration it’s our ritual Thanks for being here with me I need tough touchin I can’t give you lovin I never meant to hurt you, babe But time’s are rough At night when I cry I’m wondering why we’re everything and nothing And when I wake up I get on the train and go Take me on the rug Take me on the rug Take me on the rug Take me on the rug

How Can We 03:56
I sit and watch the dark go by It’s all I know to do to try Remember all those streets I walked today Remember all the things I told them all I’d say How can we? How can we? Comprehend the things we’ve done When we’re knowing there’s not one Center of all gravity Place where gods all come to be How can we? How can we? I worry I’m not dreaming I can’t believe I see them I can’t believe they’re there These humans all around me These structures in the sand Cause even when we’re out buying water They only wanna sell it from a bottle How can we? How can we? Comprehend the things we’ve done When we’re knowing there’s not one Center of all gravity Place where gods all come to be How can we? How can we? How can we? Center of all gravity Place where gods all come to be? Humble my humanity... Oohh...
