Track Name: Here We Go Again Anyway
Oh baby, love, I'm so glad to see you. It's been so long and I've missed you too much. And Ever since you left I have hated you for it, but I still missed you and I'm glad that you're back.

But I know you're probably just tired of not always having someone there to hold you. And I know you can feel so lonely sometimes, but so can I. Yeah so do I.

Oh so here we go again, again. Back in the same old place like we never even left. And it's not going to last 'cause we didn't change a thing. Oh but here we go again anyway.

(Repeat)

Oh baby, love, let's take this where we left off 'cause it seems like it was only yesterday. We said our last goodbyes but we never talked about why. I am still wondering but I guess I shouldn't ask.

And I know that you are just tired of not always having someone there to hold you. And I know that you're just using me. But I don't mind, 'cause I use you too.

Oh so here we go again, again. Back in the same old place like we never even left. And it's not going to last 'cause we didn't change a thing. Oh but here we go again anyway.

Yeah here we go again, again.
Here we go again, again.
Oh here we go again, again.
Ready, set, here we go again anyway.
Track Name: A Mile Above A Small Town
I spent my money on a plane ride while all the cool kids worked their wage jobs to get high. They all can call me a big square because I am, I just am, it's just what I am.

No one wants to be a loser
I said no one wants to be a loser
No I don't wanna be a loser
But I am, I just am, It's just what I am.

Well my ex-girlfriend has a college degree. She'll, "Go much farther in life than me," she said. She's gonna marry a job, a house, and a salary. She's got a plan, oh what a plan.
So someone told me that what's her name got way too drunk and fucked who's his face. I guess I missed some of the details but I don't care, I really don't care. I don't give a damn about your gossip bullshit.
Track Name: Into A Haze
So say goodbye to all those memories, but you won't miss them at all 'cause you won't even know they happened anymore. Bon voyage to all those memories, and as they cast away into the haze recall them one last time then wave goodbye.

But I won't even pay attention when I slide a razor blade across my brain and cut all the connections to so many episodic memories that have defined me for so long, but I won't even realize they're gone.
Goodbye.
Track Name: Julia's Angels
They woke me up at five in the morning, then I heard you fall, and I knew what was happening. I was so scared when they told me, "It will be soon."

As the sun went down in your hospital room I kissed your cheek, and I told you something, but you could not hear me. *I love you*

I fought and I cried, if I only had time. How could angels be wicked? I thought they could only be divine. I kicked and I screamed as they pulled her away from me every heart beat, beating weaker, I had lost my chance forever.

Then they woke me up at five in the morning, and I broke down 'cause I knew what had happened. But I smiled when they told me, "She knows."
Track Name: Just Need Love
Baby I shouldn't have to tell you, but you are perfect in every single way. You've got a beautiful body and it is always dressed to kill. You are a social butterfly. You've got so many talents it simply amazes me. You are the luckiest girl alive. It's no stretch to say,

You've got it all, you've got it all. You've got it all, but I don't want it - any of it. Girl you are smart, you are sweet, you're hot, you never make mistakes, you've got it all but you can't give me what I need. 'Cause I just need love. I just want love. But girl I'm sorry to say that when you kiss me I don't feel a thing.

Girl you are such a genius. You've got your textbooks and your planner and your to do lists. You always brighten up the room with that big pretty smile. And girl you're always on time. You've never been late to anything in your whole life, you've always gotten straight A's so I guess it's correct to say, You've got it all.

And I'm so sorry dear, but when your lips touch mine it feels like you don't even care. And I have never seen you cry so baby it's so sad to say goodbye. But I just want love.
Track Name: Baby Call Me Names
I try so hard not to ever offend you. But sometimes you deserve an insult or two. 'Cause you can be such a bitch but I won't ever tell you. 'Cause I'm too afraid I'd lose you tonight if I did, but I know I'm just too uptight.

That's why I love it when you call me names. So baby, tell me I'm a dick 'cause I can get that way. This suit and tie that I wear drives me crazy, so baby, call me names. The things you say make me feel incredible. But now the pedestal that you've got me on has grown so tall that if I slipped and were to fall I'd break my back and die when I hit the ground. So baby, please do something to bring me down.

You can be such a bitch girl, I gotta tell you. And I hope you got something bad to say to me too. 'Cause you can be such a bitch but I love that about you. So lighten up and call me names.
Track Name: Such Fun
Saturday night, I wanna spend it alone with you. I don't care if there's a million things to do. There's a party, everybody in town is there, but I don't care. Forget makeup and don't wash your hair. Dress up in the best sweats you wear. You're so cute when there's nothing that masks the way you are.

We'll drink coffee and sit and watch TV. You can brag when you win in monopoly. They might be the most boring things we've done, but it will be such fun. Oh I swear it will be such fun. 'Cause I'll be all alone with you.
Track Name: When It's Perfect
They say that it's something that can't be described and what matters more isn't it itself but the feeling behind it. It sends a shiver down your spine that steals your breath and grips your toes.

They say that it's something you just can't describe, how the Earth stops spinning for a moment in time. Everything and everyone else disappears for a while. And suddenly, you lose all your sense of reality. When it's perfect.

So I think it will be just as they describe when the right time and anticipation collide, and I'm intimate distance from that beautiful smile. I'll rest my hand behind her head so I feel that shiver sent from her neck, through my lips, into my spine. As the Earth stops spinning I'll realize. It's perfect.
Track Name: I'm Stupid
Oh baby you make me crazy. You're so amazing to me, oh it's true. And baby I gave my heart to you, but then you broke it almost as soon. When you told me all about what you do. I can't believe I could be such a fool.

Yeah you lured me in with your siren call and I'm just so naive that I didn't even have a clue.

I'm stupid but I'm in love with you. There's nothing I can do, oh it's true.
I'm stupid I should be leaving you. Yeah that's what I should do, but I don't care what's good or bad for me if it feels right.

Baby you are so pretty but you'll be the death of me oh it's true. You're not so innocent now are you babe? You played me for the fool that I am. And I should have guessed what I had coming but honey you had me under your spell.

I don't know what I'm doing but I let go. I don't know what I'm doing but here I go.
Track Name: The Biggest Favor
There's something about the way pain is. It wears you down over time. It puts a voice inside your head asking you to quit, but I'm begging you don't listen to it. I know it's much harder than it sounds. But you are my friend so I gotta ask you the biggest favor of all. Don't you ever go, don't you let me down, don't leave me here. I'm begging you, I'm begging you.

You've got you whole life, don't you throw it away. Can't you see what that would do to me?

I'm not quite the best at understanding. I don't always have the right words to say. I can't really tell you what to do, but I'm telling you right now just what it would do to me. This isn't something you do twice, so I've got a few words of advice. Just think about someone who loves you, and I know of at least one. 'Cause he's sitting here and he's begging you, I'm begging you.

You've got your whole life, don't you throw it away. Can't you see what that would do to me? You've got your whole life, don't throw it away. Just look what that would do to me.

I know it's much harder than it sounds, but you are my friend and I've gotta ask you the biggest favor of all. Don't you ever go, don't you ever quit, don't you leave me my friend.
