Track Name: It's Not Pretty, But It's Us
You'll die.
Waiting by the phone.
You'll die.
Waiting by the phone.

There's nothing left in your apartment
but teary eyes and bullshit,
and I don't know why I still drive by here.

From what you came to show me
(there's nothing left in your apartment)
you don't even know me
(but cigarettes and bullshit!)
or care enough to show me you care.

And I won't be petty, but I think I'm ready for something more steady than you.
It's just too much effort for someone to put forth to get you to tell me the truth.

And I won't be petty, but I think I'm ready for something more steady than all of your bullshit,
and I won't be petty, but I think I'm ready for something more steady than you.

(I WON'T, I WON'T CALL!)
Track Name: Dior 999
I guess it’s time we take this thing outside and kill it before it hurts someone
And I guess it’s time we reconcile our differences if we ever want to get anything done

And I keep my friends close like my bedroom window when I’m at home alone on winter break
‘Cause I’ll freeze to death if I hear your name

This partnership is sinking faster than I was ever ready for
I know what we’re headed for
It’s the end of the line
And i’m doing fine
Don’t kiss me goodbye

Your lies written in your lipstick
Your body was his bare witness
So let’s just be friends and forget the past
I knew this was never meant to last
Your lies written on your lips

And if I wanna tie you down
Commitment’s not enough
I don’t wanna call you
But I’m calling your bluff

So don’t pick up the phone
I’d rather be alone

Your lies written on your lipstick
Your body was his bare witness
So let’s just be friends and forget the past I knew this was never meant to last
Your lies written on your lips

And I need this like I need a gun to my head
I wrote you off and wrote you onto his bed

We fashion weapons from fashion statements
And come full circle invested in fool’s gold

We fashion weapons from fashion statements
And come full circle invested in fool’s gold

We fashion weapons from
(I wish that we had never come)
fashion statements and come full circle invested in fool’s gold

Your lies written on your lipstick
Your body was his bare witness
So let’s just be friends and forget the past I knew this was never meant to last
Your lies written on your kiss
Track Name: Bonfire
I can't forgive you
But I can't-can't-can't forget you
You're the scent in my clothes
You're the aching in my bones
We never talked about it
Just fucking danced around it
Now that I'm finally home, I never felt so alone

I hate the way you twist my words around,
New plots will fill the holes we split in this town
The way we thought that we that we were in love
The way we thought that we would die young

Just come home
Say that you're sorry, say that I'm right
Do the right thing for once in your life
(For once in your life)

The worst mistake I ever made:
Was choosing "nice" over "honest,"
I'm sorry I'm hard to live with
She's The Summer, and I'm Late August
And I'd tear this town apart, if I could piece us back together

Just come home
Say that you're sorry, say that I'm right
Do the right thing for once in your life
Take them all back, your vicious attacks
Put your hand on my heart and swear it was
All Your Fault

The wind howls through a fire that lights up the fall
It hit me like a ton of bricks when we hit the wall

I can't forgive you, but I can't just let you
Go

Just come home
I'll say that I'm sorry, I'll say that you're right
I'll do the right thing for once in my life
I'll take them all back, my vicious attacks
Put my hand on your heart and pretend it was
All my fault
Track Name: Bunkbeds (featuring Mike Hayden)
Six degrees of separation anxiety
I don't know if she's right for me
But she can spend tonight with me

You're insecure, so hold on to me so tight (so tight)
I'm so unsure, but I'm sure it's gonna be a long night,
Bright eyes

And if you'll let me, I promise you'll regret me
I'm not the kinda boy who gets too deep
But if you make your move
I promise I can be the kinda boy that makes an exception for you!

[Mike Hayden of Count To Four]
I'm all alone, but you're with me right now (right now)
You're on the phone tryin' to talk him down
And if you solve his problems, you'll become one of mine
And I'll just stay here with you, and pretend I'm alright
Pretend I'm just fine
Turn the other cheek and turn a blind eye

And if you let me go,
Please let me know!

And if you'll let me, I promise you'll regret me
I'm not the kinda boy who gets too deep
But if you make your move
I promise I can be the kinda boy that makes an exception for you

[Mike Hayden]
Don't waste another day,
Don't burn your time away
I don't care if this love could kill me or not
Pull the trigger on us just take the shot
Pull the trigger on us just take the shot!
Track Name: Anna Marie
Do you ever regret letting us go?
Do you lie awake at night and wish that you could take my hand and know?
Do you want to feel the rush of blood to your head again?
Do you want to feel the wind in your pretty heir to the throne?

Make sure you come alone, and don't tell anyone
I'm gonna sing you every ransom note of this song:

It was always you, Anna Marie
This is my insanity plea, here with you standing with me

Do you ever miss the taste of my kiss?
Made you a mixtape and heard you dubbed your demo over it
I need a fix, cash my reality check
I don't want lies, want you to lie down
And I'll break the news to your neck

Make sure you come alone, and don't tell anyone
I'm gonna sing you every suicide note of this song:

It was always you, Anna Marie
This is my insanity plea, here with you standing with me
You can knock me down and out, like I need something to frown about
But you'll always be the girl I'll tell this town about

[Eric Taft]
I spent the last four years trying to let you go
Trying to keep these wounds
And my friends close

This is where you take my hand, we both get on stage and break the world's smallest violin

(I spent the last four years trying to let you go
Trying to keep these wounds
And my friends close)

This is where you take my hand, we both get on stage and break the world's smallest violin

It was always you, Anna Marie
This is my insanity plea, here with you standing with me
You can knock me down and out, like I need something to frown about
But you'll always be the girl I'll tell this
Lie about
