Track Name: Rare Things
so you said youve been hanging on
by a thread
youre dangling
well i guess i should say so long
to a friend
but you held my heart
its the little things that set us apart
its a rare thing that we've stumbled on
so i hope youre right
i hope youre better off
but dont be blind
dont hide from life
we both know the end was never in sight
you held my heart
its the little things that set us apart
Track Name: Faith
i never thought it would be so hard
nothing i couldnt handle
but i guess i was wrong
im trying to forget the things
that made me so fucking sad
but i still remember
probably forever
so im just gonna keep my cool
though i dont really want to
its just a show for you
im trying to forget the things
that made me so fucking sad
i guess it doesnt work like that
now i dont really want to feel anything
im wondering if i went wrong
putting all my faith in words to songs
i lost mine in the ones who quit singing
they lost faith in being young
they struggle to remember
what i'll hold onto forever
but ive spent years alone
if this is growing up
i dont know where to go
im trying to forget the things
that made me so fucking sad
i guess it doesnt work like that
now i dont really want to feel anything
i dont have it in me to apologize if i fail again
and i'll fail again..
now i dont really want to feel anything
Track Name: Setting Fires
they've all been saying..
we've heard what theyre saying
we gotta get out
we better just run for our lives
but you and i...
after the storm, we started to drive
to get a good look at the sky
and we knew then, that they were all liars
the world is not an ugly place
but we can be an ugly race
so im glad i know you after all..

a few weeks ago i lost my job
and i started calling you every day
sometimes its like i tried my best to turn you off
but you always seem to laugh and let me stay

i dont really wanna talk it out.. no
i dont wanna hear you vocalize your doubts

because yesterday
when you picked up your guitar to play
i closed my eyes and listened to you sing
oh i just want to lay here some more
on this uncomfortable hardwood floor
sing until your neighbors complain
they were never nice enough anyway

i dont really wanna talk it out.. no
i dont really wanna..
i never said i loved you
it was much too soon
but i do

tonight, when our friends are sound asleep
we'll be slipping out
to set fire to every history book
our songs will tell the stories now
Track Name: Say When
i never thought that i'd be left to tip the scales alone
so fuck you
im still singing along to "my life"
tony's telling me my future is blown
and sipping drinks out by the pool
i might slip up but theyre all trippin
because they are all so fucked
its crashing harder than you ever thought
man, pressure is piling up
so drink your beers out by the pool

no it doesnt hurt
its cool
we're goin out
friends are asking and i tell them all
that shits been going smooth
lies and secrets.. well ive told bigger ones
everyone's a big shot now
and im just having fun

i havent seen you since god knows when
and you ask about my job
fuck you
i never really want to measure up
or even get along
go drink your beers out by the pool

no it doesnt hurt
its cool
we're goin out
friends are asking and i tell them all
that shits been going smooth
lies and secrets.. well ive told bigger ones
everyone's a big shot now
and im just having fun

kelly called me up
i said i'll meet you there
just say when
we're both down to our last few bucks
pretending we're not scared
but i can still play
so im not running

kelly called me up
i said i'll meet you there
just say when
ive never got anywhere else to be
and maybe thats ok
fighting boredom with your dollars
isnt all that brave
dont tell me things will look up
im doing OK
Track Name: Let's Sing
its all quiet now
i left a note that said i wont be home
at least not for a long while
and its funny how theyre all taking shots
but sometimes they sink in
leaves me feeling like im not meant..
to do great things
but im trying
so lets sing..
make it louder now
and everything might finally seem right
feels like its for the first time
and i dont care how we get over the humps
because im by your side
although we may never learn how..
to do great things
but im trying
so lets sing.. anything
if it doesnt hurt, it must be wrong
we fell for that a few times
and i think we've had enough
