Track Name: They Were Right
So far away from sleep I couldn’t write you a song if you dared me
I tuned my ear to hear what they wanted from me
Then promptly turned down the volume and went to sleep

I couldn’t hate you for looking that way that one afternoon - need babes on the beach
Couldn’t hate when you said that next round of drinks were on you
I couldn’t stand to hear that all of Miami had been in bloom
That week you spent cooped up alone in your hotel room

It’s quite alright to be no good at all of the things you thought you would like
Being kind and talking straight, I do believe I live with hate cause

I’ve got a big fucking problem with all the little things
People keep telling me it’s time I spend mine trying to bring
Into my life like a key, cure or seed - I don’t believe

In the healing power of designer brand mac’n’cheese
The healing power of a Cartier time piece
The healing power of a night in the VIP
The healing power of a week spent overseas

The healing power of time spent relaxing
Healing power of work that’s less taxing
Healing power of affording what you need
The healing power of a life lived without disease

I’m getting nervous and I’m wondering ‘bout the TV
And all the people that I’m trying not to be
Filling me up like a turnstile door
Fortune’s fool forever more
So if it’s time to go
If it’s time to go I hope
You just say so, you just saw so, you just say so, whoa

Cause if no one’s ever going to love me the way that I really am
To know would only mean it’s time to make more appropriate plans
Leave the records to my mom and the hope chest to my dog
One more little mystery when I am gone
One more little mystery when I am gone
One more little mystery when I am gone
Track Name: It's Hard
Sometimes it’s hard to say I quit / When no one else is gunna notice it
Like a letter that’s just been lit / I wanna tell you how I feel
Sometimes it’s hard to say I’m done / When I know I am the only one
Who will believe all the songs I’ve sung / I wanna tell you how I feel

When the daylight slips away too fast / And the moonlight never seems to last/ and your whole life’s a full body cast in the pose

Of a body in disobedient craze / A disconnect of the means and ways
A habit built at a roman’s pace / Oh my god I’d love a drink
Sometimes it’s hard to do as you feel / Sometimes hard to feel if the feel is real /I’d turn myself into an ideal But come on, Chris, you know it’s hard

To be exactly who you are and / Admit that you just want a star
Hanging in the sky / Saying that one’s mine!

When the daylight slips away too fast / And the moonlight never seems to last / And your whole life’s a full body cast in the pose
Of indifference stretched across your face / creation at a turtle’s pace
A complete capitulation to a way you just can’t know

I try not to be too hard on myself cause really now what’s the point?
I try not to be too hard - cause really, what’s the...

When the daylight slips away too fast / And the moonlight never seems to last / It’s your whole life I just don’t know
When the daylight / And the moonlight
It’s your your whole life I just don’t know
I just don’t kn-ow-ow-ow-ow-ow so I am gunna quit
