Track Name: That Way
Just like that I'm here again, though I can't say that I'm surprised
Romance ain't my thing, plus I'm a sucker for blue eyes
Did that statement contradict itself? I'm sure it did but hey
I'm used to hearing that I'll find another girl another day

It's nothing new, I've been here before
So I'm not really sure exactly why I'm back for more
In the end I'll be lost again
I guess I don't know what I'm looking for

(Chorus)
Don't look at me that way
It's making me wonder, it's making me wonder if
Things might turn out differently someday

Help I think I'm falling and I can't get up
(I was sure I could before)
My mistake to think it would be as simple as
One, two, three, four
That's alright with me
There's no such thing as meant to be

Well I'm alright, really I swear
I know that it's out there somewhere
Where I'll find some peace of mind
And finally teach myself how not to care

(Chorus)
Don't look at me that way
It's making me wonder, it's making me wonder if
Things might turn out differently someday
Track Name: Surprise Me
Let’s go, it’s just another day
Same faces decorating the same routine
That’s fine, I’m fine
One of many phrases that define me

I woke up too late to see the morning light
I could complain or just remain polite
Too little, too late, as I like to say
Otherwise known as every day

(Chorus)
Tell me something that I don’t know
Surprise me why don’t you? Go ahead and try it
I’ve seen some things that might just break your world in two
Tell me something that I don’t know
Surprise me why don’t you? Go ahead and try it
I wouldn’t mind a chance to break my world in two

It takes two to tango but only one to fall and bring the other down
Well I hate to say it, but I don’t have the colors left to paint this town

I’m enamored with something I can’t visualize
My tomorrow is terrified of my eyes
Believe none of what you hear, half of what you see
Even half of that is evading me

(Chorus)
Tell me something that I don’t know
Surprise me why don’t you? Go ahead and try it
I’ve seen some things that might just break your world in two
Tell me something that I don’t know
Surprise me why don’t you? Go ahead and try it
I wouldn’t mind a chance to break my world in two
Track Name: Nothing at All
Don’t try and tell me what they said, either way I won’t be listening
I’ve got better things to worry about anyway
Isn’t it a little bit redundant to ask me if I’m listening?
You’ve got better things to worry about anyway

Well I hope you’re not recommending another happy ending
I’ve treaded down that beaten path before
Well I’m not really wondering, just listening
Though I’m not sure if I should hear more

(Chorus)
The hardest thing I’ve ever done is not do anything
The smartest thing I’ve ever said was nothing at all
I should have thought about tomorrow yesterday
Doesn’t matter anyway, doesn’t matter at all

"Describe yourself in four words” she said, I replied
“You don’t know me”
My coping mechanism isn’t much of an “ism,” 
I just pretend it’s all below me

I’m a little bit insecure, I don’t know, I’m not sure
If I should even tell you this at all
Cause from my experience, I’m seriously
Only waiting for the fall

(Chorus)
The hardest thing I’ve ever done is not do anything
The smartest thing I’ve ever said was nothing at all
I should have thought about tomorrow yesterday
Doesn’t matter anyway, doesn’t matter at all

[Designated ‘Na Na Na’ section]

(Chorus)
The hardest thing I’ve ever done is not do anything
The smartest thing I’ve ever said was nothing at all
I should have thought about tomorrow yesterday
Doesn’t matter anyway, doesn’t matter at all
Track Name: Oh Well
Sorry, but I'm not too good at this
You can blame this awkward silence on my lack of knowledge on the subject of
Coming off like I know what I'm doing
Probably 'cause I don't know what I'm doing

Show me an open door and I'll be sure to walk into the wall
Every single time
It's comforting to know at least that I can go home
And put this in a rhyme

(Chorus)
Two hours past tomorrow, all I can think
Is that I probably shouldn't have said that
Oh well, oh well
Here we go again
I guess I can pretend
That things might turn out better eventually

We haven't even gotten to the good part
It could be worse, I could be sober
Well let me tell you something that you've probably heard a thousand times before
If you don't mind hearing it once more

Show me an open door and I'll be sure to walk into the wall
Every single time
It's comforting to know at least that I can go home
And put this in a rhyme

(Chorus)
Two hours past tomorrow, all I can think
Is that I probably shouldn't have said that
Oh well, oh well
Here we go again
I guess I can pretend
That things might turn out better eventually
Meanwhile I don't wanna know what your friends think of me

Show me an open door and I'll be sure to walk into the wall
Every single time
It's comforting to know at least that I can go home
And put this in a rhyme

(Chorus)
Two hours past tomorrow, all I can think
Is that I probably shouldn't have said that
Oh well, oh well
Here we go again
I guess I can pretend
That things might turn out better eventually
And I don't give a shit what your friends think of me
Track Name: This
All my friends might be insane
I might be too, I might be too
Comfortable in the state of “this”
I might be too, I might be too

Caught up in the possibilities
Caught up in what is or isn’t me

(Chorus)
You know that I know that something has to change but no one ever said right now was the right time
You know that I know my face better than I know my name but no one ever said right now was the right time

Are we strung together, or just strung out?
I might be too, I might be too
Petrified in the state of “this”
You might be too, you might be too

So why don’t we make a mess that’s fit for two
Or three or four or nobody but you

(Chorus)
You know that I know that something has to change but no one ever said right now was the right time
You know that I know my face better than I know my name but no one ever said right now was the right time
Track Name: Sometime
Let's be honest, I'm not sure what
I should think of the way you make my thoughts race round my head
But it's all been said before
All my friends say that you're bad news, but at the same time
You're something brand new
Still I find that voice in my mind
Screaming, "run, run, run away"

(Chorus)
Well, it might just take a little more than telling me I could be yours sometime
'Cause I'll be waiting for that time to come, till I come undone
But that's fine

Focusing on everything but your eyes, your smile
Shit, this might just take awhile
That's okay, at least today
As far as I'm concerned
So I see you've found a new one
I have no doubts that you'll have fun
Letting him down, then wrapping him around your little finger

(Chorus)
Well, it might just take a little more than telling me I could be yours sometime
'Cause I'll be waiting for that time to come, till I come undone
But that's fine
Well, it might just take a little more than telling me I could be yours sometime
'Cause I'll be waiting for that time to come, till I come undone
But that's fine

But when you realize that you might end up sleeping alone tonight
I guess you can call me
But I can't promise I'll be on the line

(Chorus)
Well, it might just take a little more than telling me I could be yours sometime
'Cause I'll be waiting for that time to come, till I come undone
But that's fine
Well, it might just take a little more than telling me I could be yours sometime
'Cause I'll be waiting for that time to come, till I come undone
But that's fine

So when you realize that you might end up sleeping alone tonight
Don't bother calling me
I'll be safe and sound with somebody else by my side
