Track Name: Obvious
I stare at you from across the room
Thinking to myself, "Could I get any more obvious?"
You look my way, I look away
I'm sure it's just a second too late
There I go again, making it obvious
It's pretty damn clear that I think you're cute
It's pretty damn clear I might catch feelings for you
But nobody else has seemed to catch on
I guess it's not so obvious

Tell me this, would you notice me if we just met on the street
Or would you pass on by?
Do I cross your mind like you cross mine?
How many songs do I have to write for you to get the hint?
I guess it's just not that obvious

Can't you see that I'm trying my damnedest?

I'll write a thousand songs just to show you how
I feel, so darling are you listening now?
I'll drop a thousand hints in a thousand lyrics
But this ambiguity makes me sick
I guess it's just not so obvious
I guess it's just not that obvious
I wanna get with you

I stare at you from across the room
Thinking to myself, "Could I get any more obvious?"
You look my way, I look away
I'm sure it's just a second too late
There I go again, making it obvious
It's pretty damn clear that I think you're cute
It's pretty damn clear I might catch feelings for you
But nobody else has seemed to catch on
I guess it's not so obvious

Can't you see that I'm trying my damnedest?

I'll write a thousand songs just to show you how
I feel, so darling are you listening now?
I'll drop a thousand hints in a thousand lyrics
But this ambiguity makes me sick
I guess it's not that obvious
I guess it's just not that obvious

Can't you see that I'm trying my damnedest?

I wanna get with you
Track Name: Lullaby
Hey darling, maybe if you wanna then you could come over tonight
We could watch a movie and I could hold your hand and you could hold me tight
Hey darling, maybe if you wanna then I could go to your place, too
It doesn't matter to me where we are as long as I'm with you

I've been numbing this pain for quite some time
But with you, I forget what the hurt felt like
So I'll sit and write this lullaby
And I'll sing it so you can know I'm with you tonight

The light fights through the cracks in the window in the morning when we wake up
You're making breakfast while I'm pouring coffee in your cup
And I'm sitting thinking I'm so lucky that I ended up with you
All I can do is hope you feel the same way, too

I've been numbing this pain for quite some time
But with you, I forget what the hurt felt like
So I'll sit and write this lullaby
And I'll sing it so you can know I'm with you tonight

I've been sleeping alone for oh so long that I've forgotten how to feel
But you taught me how to feel again

I've been numbing this pain for quite some time
But with you, I forget what the hurt felt like
So I'll sit and write this lullaby
And I'll sing it so you can know I'm with you tonight
Track Name: Here's to Assholes
You're kind of a dumbass if you think I couldn't see
Every single line you tried to feed to me
You said you missed me, said you cared
But when it came down to it, you weren't there
So I'm done wasting my time
My last tears for you have dried
And I just hope you know

You're a trick ass bitch and you ain't shit
None of your promises meant anything
You'll never give a fuck 'cause you never did
You're a fucking cunt

You're kind of a jackass and I just want to say
I'm really fucking pissed at you for what you did to me
So I'll be passive aggressive instead of telling you what's wrong
Not that it fucking matters 'cause you're already gone
And I just hope you know

You're a trick ass bitch and you ain't shit
None of your promises meant anything
You'll never give a fuck 'cause you never did
You're a fucking cunt

Before I end this song I want to say one last thing
You're full of shit, you're full of lies
You no longer mean anything to me
I hope she breaks your heart again
It's the least that you deserve
Boys like you will never learn loyalty

You're a trick ass bitch and you ain't shit
None of your promises meant anything
You'll never give a fuck 'cause you never did
You're a trick ass bitch and you ain't shit
None of your promises meant anything
You'll never give a fuck 'cause you never did
You're a trick ass bitch and you ain't shit
None of your promises meant anything
You'll never give a fuck 'cause you never did
You're a fucking cunt
Track Name: Neverland
Tell me secrets that nobody knows
Whisper them in my ear
Hold me close and don't let go
I know for a fact that the asshole thing is just an act
Show me all of your favorite songs
Sing them to me
Sing me to sleep
I'm so tired of sleeping alone when you're so close
You're so damn close

Would it be too much for me to ask for you to take my hand?
Take me to Neverland
Forever young, that's how I wanna be
Could you take me?

A midnight drive sounds so nice
Pick me up when you get off work
Next thing I know, I'm waking up next to you in your shirt
Get me home before my parents realize I'm gone
Show me all your favorite songs
Next thing I know, your lips are close to mine
They're closing in on mine
You kiss me goodbye

Would it be too much for me to ask for you to take my hand?
Take me to Neverland
Forever young, that's how I wanna be
Could you take me?

It's all just a stupid fantasy
Could you take me?
Please take me
The thought of you and me is just a stupid fantasy
Could you take me?

Would it be too much for me to ask for you to take my hand?
Take me to Neverland
Forever young, that's how I wanna be
Could you take me?
Track Name: Lonely Without Me
It's been a lonely year without you
It's been a lonely year indeed
Has it been a lonely year for you, too?
Have you been lonely without me?

I wish I hadn't told you I still love you
I wish I'd kept it to myself
'Cause I know you're over me now
And I'm here calling out for help

Eventually, I'll see that we weren't meant to be
Eventually, I'll be happy without you
Eventually, I won't cry myself to sleep
Eventually, I'll get over you
And I'll pick myself up
And I'll dry all these tears
And I won't let myself beg the question
Have you been lonely without me?

I've had too much time for thinking
And my mind always wanders back to you
And all the times we could have had
If I had never left
Yeah I was so stupid to leave you
I was stupid to leave you

Eventually, I'll see that we weren't meant to be
Eventually, I'll be happy without you
Eventually, I won't cry myself to sleep
Eventually, I'll get over you
And I'll pick myself up
And I'll dry all these tears
And I won't let myself beg the question
Have you been lonely without me?

But I've got to let go of what could have been
'Cause it's all over
It's all over
So I'll numb the pain with one night stands
But it's not working
It's not working
I guess it's time to face the truth
I'll probably never be over you

Eventually, I'll see that we weren't meant to be
Eventually, I'll be happy without you
Eventually, I won't cry myself to sleep
Eventually, I'll get over you
And I'll pick myself up
And I'll dry all these tears
And I won't let myself beg the question
Have you been lonely without me?
Track Name: A Different Kind of Drug
Don't call my name
Don't lead me on anymore
I'm done with you
I'm done with this
I'm done staying ambiguous
Don't call my name as you're walking out the door
Can't you see
You don't know me
And you're not worth the effort

Anyway, what I'm trying to say
Is I found someone who treats me like the princess that I am
Not that it matters
Not that you understand what it's like to be

Hung up on someone who don't give a damn about you
I guess it just sucks to know the truth
That I'm irrelevant
Not to him
But to you

I know I know
You're a bad idea
But when has that stopped me before
I know I know
You won't call my name
As I'm walking out the door

Anyway, what I'm trying to say
Is that I just don't understand why you have to be so cold
Not that it matters
Not that you know what it's like to be

Hung up on someone who don't give a damn about you
I guess it just sucks to know the truth
That I'm irrelevant
Not to him
But to you

He tells me I'm beautiful
That I deserve happiness
He knows my darker side
He knows my weaknesses
What have you done for me
You haven't done anything
You don't understand what it's like to be

Hung up on someone who don't give a damn about you
I guess it just sucks to know the truth
That I'm irrelevant
Not to him
But to you
