Track Name: Bare With
Lola and I will sing for you
And tell you exactly how this is going to go.
No matter how hard I try or what I do,
We all do things that we cannot understand.

This year we try coming back to you.

Oh lights they are shining but you won't leave me will you?
An ode to all who've never found me. You won't leave me will you?

You say bare with. Bare with what?
Because I'm knee deep and you know I cannot swim.
You look to the skies and at the same moon.
It looks like we aren't going to get any sleep tonight.

My love let's see what we can do.

Oh lights they are shining but you won't leave me will you?
An ode to all who've never found me. You won't leave me will you?

Look what you've done to me.
How could you do it when you knew it was so wrong?
You swallowed me deeply and called me your baby.
How could you do it when you knew it was so wrong?
Track Name: Fire Burning Freely
There's no excuse for a fire burning freely
except for you and for me.
And as the world tries to put out our fire,
we both protected it secretly.

Are you surprised you're still in love?
I'm hoping you still are with your open heart
still loving me.

We've had trouble simply getting along
and I know I am to blame.
If you forgive me my past and my present,
you'll know that I'll do the same.

Are you surprised you're still in love?
I'm hoping you still are with your open heart
still loving me.

Do you still love me? Answer me.
Track Name: New News
I'm sure you saw the news:
"There's a thousand people that are ready to love you".
And me being the only one
I shuttered at the sound of you leaving.
You say it's not the end of the world
but it's the end of the world when you don't have your girl
That's why I do the things I do
In hope that you will pity them to.

On your windowsill
There's a picture of you and Phil.
I think about breaking it in
So that I could sleep next to you every night.
But I'm sure you'll find another lover
Just like I found you.
The lucky bastard gets to hold your hand
And say he loves you.

How's ready for some new news? A broadcast that I choose.
Just one that I don't loose all my ties to you.
I stand here phone in hand: "Why can't you just understand?
I don't want you to loose all my ties to you."
Track Name: Sinking Us
You know that these words are truthful.
And that the truth is hard to swallow.
You're lovely and you know it. I'm so caught.
Caught up in me sinking us.

Sinking us. Thinking I.
Thinking I might go back for a second.
Leave me here on the porch in the rain.

For once in my life I wish I could
Just be right and right all the wrong.
I know I've said some things not worth saying.
And that's why tonight I die.

Sinking us. Thinking I.
Thinking I might go back to the home that you grew up in.

Because you said that we were so much more than you heard of before.
Lies won't strip these eyes and won't leave me standing here.
Track Name: Size 9 Shoe
Love wears a size 9 shoe.
He loves to come and he loves to go.
And he jumps down invades my sleep.
These distant dreams I try to keep.

He guides my hand to another.
He whispers in my ear you know you love her.
I close my eyes and squeeze a smile.
It's not like I've been searching for a while.

Love has a warm winter coat.
He wraps it around us like our own little moat.
He holds us together and pushes us tight.
He whispers in my ear you know she's right.

He guides my hand to another.
He whispers in my ear you know you love her.
I close my eyes and squeeze a smile.
It's not like I've been searching for a while.
If something is written then it's certainly true.
If you can see it in the stars then I love you.
He grips on my shoulder and we cling to one another.
He whispers in my ear you know you love her.
Track Name: Burden
I've got faith in this world thinking that it's been changing.
I'm sure that we'll get better.
There's a weight on my shoulder - it means I'm getting older.
And you're getting older to.

Let's just focus on us and not worry about you
Cuz you'll have your whole life.
I know I'm a burden and I'm still learning
How to be this way.

Put you to sleep.
Put you to sleep.
Track Name: I'm Colder Without My Flannel
Will you love him?

If someone comes and approaches you,
Gives you their heart what do you do?
Do you love him? Or do you let him go?
The boy in the foreground in the flannel shirt.
In the picture beneath your bed.
Did you love him? Or did you let him go?

Because there's a thousand ways to sing a single song.
You let him in and you let him out and now he's finally gone.
You packed you're bags and moved away and didn't look back.
And without my flannel it's so cold.

Summer in SLO is so fast. The past has past is past has past.
Did you miss it or did you not?
And now you see why it hurts because it's more than loosing some flannel shirts.
Would you do it again? Or just stay friends?

Because there's a thousand ways to sing a single song.
You let him in and you let him out and now he's finally gone.
You packed you're bags and moved away and didn't look back.
And without my flannel it's so cold.

I am broken. You have spoken. You're words are soused in distain.
What is mutual? Less of me and more of you. I am no fool.
You always knew.

If someone comes when you are cold
and warms you up will you be sold?
Will you love him?
And what if he sings to you? Would you melt inside like you used to do?
Would you love him?

Will you love him?
