Track Name: Club Passim
Lived my life trying to avoid conflict
Path of least resistance is where you'll find me
But I have found you gotta break a few eggs
To write a song that people think is worth singing
So I'm out here breaking eggs, making mistakes
And hoping things will turn out okay
But I'm more likely to end up in a job I hate
Than living my dreams out on stage

James wants me to sing like Brian Sella
Mom wants me to be like Kelter, he's a doctor
She says its not to late to change my dreams
I could help people if I stop this silly singing
And Paige wants me to move to Baltimore
And I don't know what I want anymore

I've seen an artist's dreams crumble as she sees
Her whole world crash beneath and she falls to her knees
And all I could think was "good God that could be me"
Where is the line between my dreams and reality
And how can I cross the two
So I can do what I love to do
And maybe support myself too
Well dad says write a song that we can all clap along too

James wants me to sing like Brian Sella
Mom wants me to be like Kelter, he's a doctor
She says its not to late to change my dreams
I could help people if I stop this silly singing
And Paige wants me to move to Baltimore
And I don't know what I want anymore
I think I wanna go to Club Passim
Play my six string, and hope that people like me

Well I'm only 19 I'm not ready to decide what defines me for the rest of my life
Well I'm only 19 but I know the world is cold if you don't fit it right
Strange to think that any day my life could fork and I'd be forced to decide
I'm only 19 but I think that I am ready to make that choice

I'm not gonna sing like Brian Sella,
Sorry mom but I will never be a doctor
And I'm not moving down to Baltimore
My heart belongs up here in Boston way up North
Well I think I'm gonna go to Club Passim
And play my six string, a round of drinks on me
Well I'm still just 19 so we'll hold off on the drinks for now
And just enjoy the spirits of this sound

James wants me to sing like Brian Sella
Mom wants me to be like Kelter, he's a doctor
She says its not to give up all my dreams
I could help people if I stop this silly singing
And Paige wants me to move to Baltimore
And I don't know what I want anymore
Well I think I'm gonna go to Club Passim
And play my six string, and hope that people like me
Track Name: The Only One Who Appreciates My Sense of Humor is the Girl I Made Up for this Song
No more, no more
I'm done with metaphors
She screams and shakes her hand off his
And stares beyond him
He's taken aback
She preps her next attack
A bunch of words he's never heard
Stretch out beyond them

And that was all they ever heard from her

Bright eyes, white eyes
Filled up with white lies
She's used to protect her heart
From all sorts of danger
She spoke in rhyme
And always in time
She learned expression from the music daddy showed her

And that was all they ever heard from her
And that was all they ever heard from her

But something wasn't right
The words she said they didn't rhyme
And she spoke uncharacteristically out of time
She says what makes me different
Have I earned this spot on Earth
Or have I done anything to prove I'm worth it
He looked into her eyes
The ones he's known told a thousand lies
and thinks its time he tries on of her own lines

My dear, don't fear
I know the future is unclear
But you know the drill
You got the skill
To make it over that hill
Just take your time
I promise you will shine
The world will know your name
I'm sure you'll amount to some sort of fame

And that was all she needed to hear from him
And he cant believe she bought it i mean those werent exactly the most motivational words

sigh

So now, it seems
Our story has a good ending
well i mean theres really no way to determine how good someones life is just based off the context of a song and based on the fact there is a song to begin with there seems to be some underlying issues that need to be sorted out at a later cause now were just gonna move right along
Track Name: OFP
It was cold, dark February day
When your casket was brought away
And my worst fears came true
I lost you
And I thought back to the days in our chairs
Where we watched baseball without a care
And I remember you told me
All I had to do

The rest of the winter was cold and fierce
With walls of snow and frozen tears
And music that didn't pour from the house anymore
Your silence left us deaf
All the singers went without breath
And the guitars they all played out of tune
I remember you told me

Son you're gonna play guitar on the moon
You'll marry a girl in the month of June
And know that things will be alright
Son you're gonna play guitar on the moon
You'll marry a girl in the month of June
And know that things will be alright

But it seemed the dream had ended soon
When you shot up up past the moon
And didn't even buy me time to say goodbye
But just when it all seemed so bleak
You came to me in a dream last week
And reminded me of all that I had to do
You told me "Son you're gonna play guitar on the moon
You marry that girl this June, and keep on learning how to hold a tune
So that you can keep up your fight, you know that wrong won't conquer right
You're only fighting miles
Your future's on the dial"

So I'm off to play guitar on the moon
I board my rocket pretty soon
And I hear that heaven's great
Won't you save me a space
So I can play strong and I'll play loud
I know that you will be around
And that I'll make you proud
When I play where theres no sound
Track Name: Taxi
You took your first hit of freedom when you were 18
You were momma's little angel and your conscience clean
Till your friends blew a cloud and dragged you to its core
Now your mind is going numb you've never felt this before

The only boy you ever liked was on the movie screen
Momma said one day a boy who'd crown you queen
But last week you kissed your queen on the kitchen floor
And you've don't know what it means and you feel unsure

Cause you were driven from the back seat
Your heart was a taxi
Taking you where they want to go
But now the car is empty
So who the hell will you be
When life's never been your own

You say you only come alive is in your poetry
You say you finally found the thing that makes you unique
But now books and bills pilling at your door
And you're losing your love to life's earthly chores

Cause you were driven from the back seat
Your heart was a taxi
Taking you where they want to go
But now the car is empty
So who the hell will you be
When life's never been your own
She sang "oh I don't know where in the world I will go"
She sang "oh I don't know. But I know this is not my home"

You got a steady job with your dual degrees
You find solace in the bottom of your whiskey drink
You've finally have a life that would make them proud
And you hate that you're content with how you turned out

She sang "oh I don't know where in the world I will go"
She sang "oh I don't know. But I know this is not my home"
You sang "oh I don't know where in the world I will go"
You sang "oh I don't know. But I know this is not my home"

Cause I was driven from the back seat
My heart was a taxi
Taking me where they want to go
But now the car is empty
So who the hell will I be
Cause life's never been my own
Track Name: Bullshit
Hello there and what's his name
These words escape my mouth
As I stand there gaping awkwardly
What were we talking about
Do you remember December, late November
What do you do now?
We could be together but never forever when your names in
Someone else's mouth

And I just watched my entire night go south

Oh its a wonder how the time has passed us by
It seems like only yesterday I watched you break down and cry
And you cried bullshit you don't love me anymore
We were in line at the store when you threw our shit up on the floor
And you cried bullshit you don't love me anymore
You took my heart and played along like it was a whiny bullshit song

She said write me an awkward party song
That might be one I like
But I don't know shit about parties
I've never been to one
Except for that one time that one night

Where I spilled your drink and forgot to check if you're alright
(you good?)

And its a wonder how the time has passed us by
It seems like only yesterday I watched you break down and cry
And you cried bullshit you don't love me anymore
We were in line at the store when you threw our shit up on the floor
And you cried bullshit you don't love me anymore
You took my heart and played along like it was a whiny bullshit song

You cried bullshit you don't love me anymore
You slammed the car door and sat in back and screamed no more
Of this bullshit, I am finished and now I understand
Why you don't hold my hand
In front of all your little friends

You cried bullshit you don't love me anymore
You cried bullshit you don't love me anymore
You cried bullshit you don't love me anymore (I said hey take away my pain)
You cried bullshit you don't love me anymore (I said hey take away my pain)
Take a day take a week take your whole life you'll never forget tonight
Take a day, a week, tomorrow night you'll never forget tonight
You cried bullshit you don't love me anymore
You cried bullshit you don't love me anymore
You cried bullshit you don't love me anymore
You cried bullshit you don't love me anymore
Track Name: Our Song (Radiator Hospital Cover)
Dreaming of the last time that you said you wanted to dance
No you don’t ask me anymore
Maybe you’re just tired when you get home from work
Or maybe you’d rather be dancing with someone else

Every time he calls you I can hear a change in your breath
Your voice is hushed and controlled
Maybe you’re just tired of straining your throat
Or maybe there’s something you don’t want me to hear

You won’t get off that easy, no don’t say you love me
When you know you don’t
If you’re thinking that we’re through
I won’t hold it against you
You know I won’t

Every other morning I wake up and find that you’re gone
The note says you went for a jog
Maybe you’re just tired of sleeping in or maybe you’d rather be running away
Every time you kiss me I can hear the Gods call my name
Yeah I feel pretty for once
But I can feel the weight of your heart
And it’s making me more tired every day

You won’t get off that easy,
no don’t say you love me when you know you don’t
If you’re thinking that we’re through
I won’t hold it against you, you know I won’t
Sometimes I hear you crying alone in the shower
But I don’t make a sound
I just hope that he loves you like I never could do
And you like what you found

When you call your mom back tell her that I’m the one leaving
You know she wouldn’t understand
And she shouldn’t have to
I won’t hold it against you
