Track Name: often
when I'm alone, or lonely
which is often more often than not
I often wonder how long I'll be
forever, or ever, or more

I know I haven't been myself
but all I can say is I'm not someone else
we're just different versions of the same goddamn person
often lonely, or lonelier
more often than not
Track Name: only human
hey you, keep your chin up
keep it up, keep it up, keep it up, keep it up, keep it up
hey you, wipe the dirt off your knees
brush your teeth, wash your face, tie your shoes,
sing the blues, then just let them fly away
cause you've got too much on your shoulders anyway

hey you, keep your chin up
keep it up, keep it up, keep it up, keep it up, keep it up
hey you, keep your eyes on the clouds
they're raining down on you & me
and me and you and you and you and you and me
we're only human

we're only human
and we put too much on our shoulders anyway.
Track Name: time to spare
I've got pockets to keep all your quarters
I've got a wallet to keep all your notes
I've got a watch that doesn't run by anybody's clock

I've got time, I've got time
time to spare

I've got blankets to make sure you sleep safe
I've got pillows to make sure you dream
I've got a heart that doesn't beat for anybody else
I've got a love that I don't need to prove to anybody else

I've got time, I've got time
I've got time, so take your time
I've got time, we've got time
time to spare.
Track Name: isn't it pretty?
I think you're neat but I'll never get to know you
I think you're sweet but I'll never get to tell you
all the good things that you do
and the way I like your half-hearted smile
but that's just the way it goes

I'll never hold your hand as I'm running past the street signs
past the pavement and the cars as we make it into ours
and all the cool things that we'd do
and the way I'd plan an anniversary
but that's just the way it goes

I skipped a beat the first time that I saw you
I figured that we'd meet and that we'd make a good match
and all the memories we'd make and all the pictures that I would take
but that's not the way it goes.

and that's alright, you're just not the one for me.

if you don't have time to reply to my letters
then you're not the one.
Track Name: charlotte & bob
get in my car
I'll open the door
I'll use up my fuel
I'll follow the law

turn the radio on
I won't look in your eyes
I won't reach for your hand
I'll just drive through the night

can we just drive til it feels alright?

we could listen to songs
or we could just talk
like there's nothing to do
in the morning

and we will be friends
in most perfect of ways
I'll just drive right through
this empty space

can we just drive til it feels alright?

the highway tricks me
it's lined so pretty
it takes me from you
and takes me back to
Track Name: cast off
my home sailed far away from me
I cast her out into the sea
and then I swam with weakened might
while home sailed swiftly from my sight

it was an accident, please forgive me.

I'll board a plane to cross this pond
and spot the shore my home sits on
I'll hike and crawl beyond these lands
to find my home and hold it's hand

it was an accident, please forgive me
it was an accident, so I can go home

I've got nowhere else to go
I'll cast myself away from here
I'll cast myself away, away, away
Track Name: don't worry
don't worry, I won't be attending the show
I'm sure you won't mind, I know you won't mind
don't worry, you won't ever hear my voice
I sang a terrible song, did a terrible thing

but don't you mind if I mind?

don't worry, I will not be in your life
I won't come around, I won't be around
don't worry, I will not try to be your frend
I don't deserve to, I ruined it all

but don't you mind if I mind?
or that I keep singing these terrible songs?
I'll keep singing these terrible songs.
they're all I've got for my mind.
Track Name: too much love
I've got too much love, it won't fit in my chest
so I bottle it up in jars on my desk
and I hang it on walls and I send it with stamps
but it keeps on coming back

through my skin, past my bones
til my heart explodes, "take me home!"

I've got too much love, it won't hide in my house
so I kicked it out on the curb with the clouds
and I bruised up it's knees and I told it to leave
but it keeps on running back

through my skin, past my bones
til my heart explodes, "take me home!"

home, where the butterflies land
and home, while they're resting their wings
and I realize that in comparison
I mean nothing

take me home.
Track Name: happy
do you really love me?
or is your vision blurry?
is your heart just in a hurry?
is your head just in a flurry?

well I don't know.
I guess that's just part of growing old from now on.

well were you really happy?
when you were smiling at me?
did you wish to keep it secret?
did you hope to hide beneath it?

well I don't know.

I don't know if we'll love each other or someone else.
I don't know if I'll see you this year or never again, oh no.
well I don't know.

so lets just be happy.
I just hope that you're happy.
I just hope that I'm happy.
'cause I don't know.
Track Name: dancing
I know you're just a honeybee, but I love you.
I know it seems that you can't fly, but you are.
and though at times it stings, I love you.
and though at times it stings, I'm a honeybee too.

we could ruin these lives any moment.
we could end each other or end ourselves.
and though at times it stings, I won't
and though at times it stings, no I won't.
'cause you remind me of familiar things & places.

honeybee, stay with me.
