Track Name: Questions
Can you feel it?
Are you certain?
When the moonlight cradles you
Are you dreamin' of someone specific?
Does every lover
Have a brother?
Whatever bothers you, do you let it?
Are they keepin' you awake at night, all these questions?

In a past life
Were you a dollar?
Was your value laid out for you
Without your say in the matter?
Were you kept up?
Or were you tattered?
Just waitin' to be spent?
Or were you waitin' on answers to questions like

Do we pick who we choose to love?
Do we pick who we choose to love?
Can we pick who we choose to love?
Are we proud of who we used to love?

Are we destined to live with love handed to us in a shrink wrapped package?
And will we ever realize what happens when it was sent to the wrong address?
Track Name: Fool Like Me
I wake up and you're crying on my voicemail
What did I do last night?
Or what didn't I do my whole life?

It started out late one night
You were listening to my voice through my chest
I was yours and you were mine
We'd grown closer than I ever could've guessed
Sand flew by and, intertwined, our bodies radiated heat in the night
I'll never know what blew the spark out
But I'm searching desperately for a light

I wake up and you're crying on my voicemail
Did I break your heart?
Did I leave you to fall apart?
Whatever I did, I'm sorry love
But that's what you should expect from a fool like me

Before we met what was your life?
Were you living from phase to phase?
You were with a bass player
With a darkness hanging over your days
Should I cry or tell you lies
Like I'm the man from all those movies you've seen?
Collecting sand with hollow hands
I'll be collapsing all your wildest dreams

You were thinking 'bout the future
While I was wasting your time
And I'll admit that I've been dreaming
Wishing you were still mine
Track Name: Hit You
Start with love - by the time you end you're fallin' to pieces
End with hate - every day is a birthday for your nieces and all their little snot-nosed friends
Are gonna scream and demean everything you hold dearest
Take your time, squeeze the lime, and get in line to speak your thesis
Then start sinkin' down
My hands were feeling pretty clean
But red appeared as you offered me the option to leave
So I stuck around like an ass

You'll never know what hit you by the time you're free
Bad grades, accolades, and your future is sweet
I don't need the drama
Lose the oxford comma

Backwards time - like a rhyme - kinda feel like I'm failing
I must admit, all the shit I thought I knew could never help me get back to smooth sailing
Further on, rock & roll will be the death of the vagrant
He thinks he's fine on his own but in his heart he is ailing
He needs a black magic touch
My head was feeling pretty green
But I refused as you offered me the option to leave
And live inside a closet

You'll never know what hit you by the time you're free
Bad grades, accolades, and your future's so sweet
You got a tribal tat, it's like a diary
I don't need the drama
But I kinda wanna
See you exactly how you see yourself

You'll never know what hit you 'cause you'll never be free
Bad grades, first dates, "Babe, your limo is here"
I filled the scoreboard up, looks like I'll never win
I could use some drama
Glad you really wanna
Track Name: Starstruck
I was stranded
When you came to me, dear
So surrounded
Whispered words fell like tears
You're a liar
It's the truth that you fear
I'm inspired
But the reason's unclear

Starstruck, starstruck when I see your face
I get so close I can almost taste
Pull me into your sweet embrace

It resounded
Yeah, you're coming in clear
Am I howlin'
Loud enough for you, dear?
On my headstone:
"NICE ENOUGH lying here
Should have listened
But he covered his ears"

Starstruck, starstruck when I see your face
I get so close I can almost taste
Pull me into your sweet embrace
I nod, you smile, then we drift away

I should have listened the first time you told me I was wrong
Should have stayed close to you, yeah I knew it all the long
Should have listened the first time you asked me am I sure
I should have listened but my ears were ringing
And I was starstruck
