Track Name: whiskey
You say, “Don’t worry, it’s just city water.
It will drain but it will never run dry.”
You say, “Don’t worry, the rats aren’t lonely at night.
They find comfort in sodium streetlight.”
Listen, kid, I know you think that whiskey makes you feel like you’re in love.
Listen, kid, I know you think when you’re drunk your body fits me like a glove.

It’s not that you’re hard to love,
You’re just hard to love well.
It’s not that you’re hard to love,
You’re just hard to love well.
In this light you look alright to me,
In this light you look all right to me;
In this light you look so, you look so…
Track Name: screwdriver
When I look at you I see a whole world of opportunity.
In your eyes, they aren’t green like you want them to be,
I see colors that far outweigh your brown, and I don’t care
that you feel like I’m always pushing too hard.

A boy took me out tonight.
He wants to see me again.
But all I see in beginnings are ends,
like the way the ends of your hair cover your eyes
when you’re trying to light a cigarette.

Listen up, I don’t mean to sound harsh but you
took your pillows from my bed and I don’t care anymore,
you only live next door, you have a lover on your floor.
And I, I went out tonight.

He paid for my cab.
He paid for my dinner.
He paid for my dinner.

What am I supposed to say? You never come on time anyway.
You were all smoke and no fire; I am all love and no desire.
What do I mean? I am all… I am all over the place,
I don’t mean to scare you away.
I am all over the place, you; you don’t move.

What do I owe you? Why are you over me?
I didn’t know the sun could burn so cold in California.
This isn’t California.

New York will empty you and everything you love
will move like water away from you.
New York, I love you, but you’re turning me inside-out.
New York, I love you, but you’re turning me into a fool.
New York, I love you, I love you, I love you.
New York, I love you, I love you, I love you.
Track Name: xanax
He places his hands on the wheel.
Suddenly the freeway isn't free anymore...
the weight in his pocket drags on the floor.
He carries her name in his arm;
"Mother, O, Mother I meant you no harm."

He lays in a mess on the floor.
He lays in a mess on the floor.
He lays in a mess on the floor.
He doesn't feel it anymore.

He lays in a mess on the floor.
He lays in a mess on the floor.
Maybe he's taken too much,
or maybe he's finally taken enough.

And he's over the moon...
Track Name: tea
Hold fast to your anchor; this ship's going under.
Don't you know that's a good thing? The water is cleansing.
The first day that I met you, tossing rocks to the river.
Who knew that I'd know you better than I'd known anyone before?

And it's unlike anything
when you're only seventeen.
I've never felt this before...

And this isn't a love song unless you love me, too.
In the way that you hold me I know, I know, I know you do.
Peeling petals from daisies in the sunlight of my room...
he loves me, he loves me, he loves me.
He loves me, too.

Time slows when I'm with you. There's not a word in the world for this.
A fold in the universe where lovers go to kiss.
I never believed in love at first sight, but I know
the Universe has Her sight on us.

And it's unlike anything
when you're only seventeen.
I've never felt this before...

And this isn't a love song unless you love me, too.
In the way that you hold me I know, I know, I know you do.
Peeling petals from daisies in the sunlight of my room...
he loves me, he loves me, he loves me.
He loves me, too.

And it's unlike anything
when you're only seventeen.
I've never felt this before...
Every day I love you more.

And this isn't a love song unless you love me, too.
In the way that you hold me I know, I know, I know you do.
Peeling petals from daisies in the sunlight of my room...
he loves me, he loves me, he loves me.
He loves me, too.
