Track Name: Like Me Most
LIKE ME MOST

Verse:
Are you really gonna come and meet me?
Am I really gonna change your mind
Did you really mean what you said to me?
Cause my thinking isn't far behind
2x
I'm sitting, waiting at the coast here for you
Yea, I'm parked on PCH
Gotta leave this town discreetly
Until I know I'm in the right place
2x

Chorus:
I just wanted you to like me most
Rare I get a chance to be so close
I know
You'll go
2x
I can't take away what isn't mine
But I'll always make it worth your time
I know
I'll let you go

Verse:
Need a change of pace to catch me
Like a heavyset hunter would
Artemis did never actually
Stick with Orion for good
2x
Love you cause you're a little bit dangerous
In a fairly responsible way
Loving me is quite courageous
Crank up the music and play

INSTRUMENTAL (build up)
4x

Chorus:
I just wanted you to like me most
Rare I get a chance to be so close
I know
You'll go
2x
I can't take away what isn't mine
But I'll always make it worth your time
I know
I'll let you go

BRIDGE
2x piano
Oh I really gotta leave this town tonight
Look ahead until I gain my sight
Yes I am a little afraid but fear is made for those who wait
Look ahead until Im far behind
Look ahead until I”m far behind

4x piano

Chorus:
I just wanted you to like me most
Rare I get a chance to be so close
I know
You'll go
2x
I can't take away what isn't mine
But I'll always make it worth your time
I know
I'll let you go

Track Name: Remember
REMEMBER

Verse 1:
I am the ruins of a song strung along to
Sound nice to everybody else
I am a mess of sounds and colors and ivory mistakes

Everything originals besides the point
Everything besides the point is you
I let you change the key
I let you sleep right next to me

Pre-Chorus
I didn't feel the losing then I only felt the need to leave

CHORUS:
I could never explain
I remember what it feels like
I remember in the springtime
Every book that I own
It would shatter in the knowledge
It would shatter in the knowledge


Verse 2:
Do you remember when we found that fortuen teller
and you thought that you for sure knew me better
There is only time that's taken
There is only time that takes

You and I were playing in a village
Both our parents seemed so antique
I started counting down grandfather clocks and
The sun rises when you speak

Pre-Chorus
I didn't feel the losing then I only felt the need to leave

CHORUS:
I could never explain
I remember what it feels like
I remember in the springtime
Every book that I own
It would shatter in the knowledge
It would shatter in the knowledge

Verse 3:
I remember what it feels like in your kitchen
Every morning seemed so profound
Everytime I hear an ice cream truck
I think of you when I hear that sound
Pre-Chorus
I didn't feel the losing then I only felt the need to leave

CHORUS:

I could never explain
I remember what it feels like
I remember in the springtime
Every book that I own
It would shatter in the knowledge
It would shatter in the knowledge

INSTRUMENTAL
CHORUS:
Amin | Cmaj | Fmaj | Cmaj |Amin
I could never explain
I remember what it feels like
I remember in the springtime
Every book that I own
It would shatter in the knowledge
It would shatter in the knowledge
Pre-Chorus

I didn't feel the losing then
I only felt the need to leave
Track Name: Your Skin
YOUR SKIN

Verse: (piano)
You're skin brims
With the ink that I belong in
The ink that I am in

You sure know how to make a girl feel like trash
Pawn her straight in for cash and your done


CHORUS:
Pardon the expression
But I really hate to lose
Pardon the aggression
But you can't threaten me to choose
Outdated, Overrated and lost your mystique
(repeat piano part for last line)

VERSE:
Get me on an amtrak
and do it fast
The tides of repercussions are looming from the past
There is no way
We could ever last

Fear is for sale in you and I
Remember when we talked about the warning signs
Remember when we talked about the warning signs

CHORUS:
Pardon the expression
But I really hate to lose
Pardon the aggression
But you can't threaten me to choose
Outdated, Overrated and lost your mystique
(repeat piano part for last line)

INSTRUMENTAL
(Caleb solo-length of chorus)

VERSE:
Remember when we couldnt' sleep
when you got back to town
We tried to get so tired but wound up
Driving around
Fixated on getting
Underground

The windows got so foggy
My palms kicked up a sweat
I handed you a sentence
I would never forget
I gave you an exit
I gave you a warning sign

CHORUS:
Pardon the expression
But I really hate to lose
Pardon the aggression
But you can't threaten me to choose
Outdated, Overrated and lost your mystique
(repeat piano part for last line)

BRIDGE:

Damn,
you're a pessimist
Damn
I'm a cynic
Damn, I'm about to kiss my worst critic

Damn,
you're a pessimist
Damn
I'm a cynic
Damn, I'm about to kiss my worst critic

Damn,
you're a pessimist
Damn
I'm a cynic
Damn, I'm about to kiss my worst critic

Damn,
you're a pessimist
Damn
I'm a cynic
Damn, I'm about to kiss my worst critic

CHORUS:
Pardon the expression
But I really hate to lose
Pardon the aggression
But you can't threaten me to choose
Outdated, Overrated and lost your mystique
Outdated, Overrated and lost your mystique
Track Name: 17
Verse:
He said I've been living with you
Since I was 17
I don't know how to be
If you know what I mean
I said everything that you just said to me then
Doesn't resonate at all
So I'll just pretend

Chorus:
Mistrust, Heartbreak, Lies
Some things in life don't just end with goodbye
Countless, Hopeless tries
The clarity of your transparent disguise

Verse 2:
The suffocating still air of silent contempt
My stomach just dropped
I knew just what you meant
Sometimes there's no perfect
There is just try
That starts with the pain of knowing you'd lie

Verse 3:
In the quietest night in a deafening room
I felt smoke in my lungs but could not breathe the fumes
I heard your voice speaking a heavy steel shield
How could I break through these walls you've revealed

Chorus:
Mistrust, Heartbreak, Lies
Some things in life don't just end with goodbye
Countless, Hopeless tries
The clarity of your transparent disguise

Verse 4:
This empty shell of hollow regret
Recreating my past of dissapointment
Don't leave me here with the saddest of hearts
It will only mean that I was right from the start

Verse 5:
He said I don't want to hurt you
It's funny just how
We surprise ourselves with just what we allow

Chorus:
Mistrust, Heartbreak, Lies
Some things in life don't just end with goodbye
Countless, Hopeless tries
The clarity of your transparent disguise

Bridge:
The very same walls on which I rely
Serve as the blockade between you and I

Chorus: (Repeat)
Mistrust, Heartbreak, Lies
Some things in life don't just end with goodbye
Countless, Hopeless tries
The clarity of your transparent disguise
Track Name: Paper Doll
PAPER
Intro:
Verse:
There is no magical way
No magical reason why
There is no possible way
That I could say goodbye

I am a paper doll
Stuck in the middle of pages that are soaking wet
Don't try to dry me out
Throw in some doubt about
Back out when you've lost the bet

CHORUS:
I know
You care
Only as much as your shadow allows
I know
You care
If only you let yourself say it out loud
The past is like revolving doors
Only I am stuck in yours
In yours

INSTRUMENTAL
2x verse

Verse:
There is nothing justified about people who can't say goodbye
Illusions can't comfort you
Not cause I want them to
Only to keep you alive


CHORUS:
I know
You care
Only as much as your shadow allows
I know
You care
If only you let yourself say it out loud
The past is like revolving doors
Only I am stuck in yours
In yours

Outro
(verse)
Track Name: Amazing
Verse 1:
You look amazing always
I've never felt that way
Though it's just my opinion
It's still mine to say

If I look amazing always
You've always looked that way
Though it's just your opinion
It's still yours to say

Chorus:
It's true
That I'm amazing next to you
and it's true
that just your presence pulls me through
And inspires
My desires
When you're gone
My heart breaks on and on and on

Verse 2:
If I look amazing always
No One can stay that way
Will you still love me
When I fade away

There is a child inside me
Who functions out of fear
Though you shouldn't come closer
You should still stay here

Chorus:
It's true
That I'm amazing next to you
and it's true
that just your presence pulls me through
And inspires
My desires
When you're gone
My heart breaks on and on and on

Verse 3:
I know you feel alone here
I'll never let you be
If I have faith in you
Will you have faith in me?

I only speak for a reason
I just grew up that way
When I'm around you
There's still more to say

Verse 4:
There is a secret magnet
in only you and me
Though hidden on the inside
Its not hard to see

Your eyes reflect the season
Of course my favorite one
Though I've known you for lifetimes
We have just begun

Verse 5:

I've spent my life constructing
The walls that protect me
They are transparent as far as you can see

I've had a revelation
I've had a prophecy
All your mistakes
have led you to me

Verse 6:
I've never been so forward
Never so direct
I am a woman
With something to protect

I have no need for oracles
to tell me what I know
That you still love me
more than you can show

I've never been called out
In such a truthful way
With no words to hold back
what I'm trying to say
