Track Name: Break Another Heart
I.

How do I be a man?
How do I be a man about this?
I haven't been that good
I have never been that good with time
How do I tell you that this is good?
Can I convince you that this is for the best?

I can't take the stairs right now
In fact right now I can't take much at all
I sit down
This weight falls round my feet

I shouldn't have waited til my hand was forced
I should've not put off this divorce
Nothing I can do about that now
It's not your fault
But I've had you outlined in chalk for some time

I met you on the lawn
I met you on the lawn to say "Goodbye"

II.

There is much guilt in this release
There is much guilt in this release
I looked at the numbers and you were the better friend
And I swear I'll never break another heart again

I can't shake these visions at all
I can't shake these visions at all
I pulled back the trigger and left a pulpy mass of red
Oh Lord, next time won't you please take mine instead

I know we will be better off
I know we will be better off
But right now that doesn't comfort, right now I'm not at ease
Oh Lord, next time won't you please take mine please
And I swear I'll never break another heart again
Track Name: Around the Bend
Where is the mercy in this world that I have known
Something smells rotten and it ominously grows
These nights are longer I can hardly stay asleep
Knowing there's something that is lurking, smirking and is living
Around the bend
Around the bend
Around the bend from me

Light years from Earth I was stationed peacefully
Aloof and wary I surveyed everything
Cosmic forces aligned to get it done
Knocked me from orbit and sent me straightly, flailing, sailing
Around the bend
Around the bend
Around the bend to you

Oh oh oh there can be no oh oh
Way to prevent this fate
The hour is far too late and
Woah oh oh oh
I'm not quite right
I'll concede this fight
Cause I have gone around the bend
Around the bend
Around the bend for you

I have gone around the bend
Around the bend
Around the bend for you
Track Name: Always Be My Baby
Oh my Alice
What is the matter my dear
What has got you down
How can I make it right
So we're not up all night
How can we turn this around

My dear Alice
What are you saying to me
What are the words that you need
You're not talking straight
Try to communicate
We could both use some sleep

Oh I wanna be the one to guide you
Show you what's what and just what I'd do
But if I'm ever not right beside you
You'll always be my baby

Listen Alice
There's so much you should know
I don't know where to start
Maryland was the 7th state
This song is in 6/8
There's 4 chambers in your heart

Well now Alice
I should probably slow down
Can't learn it all in a day
But soon you're walking tall
Will we get to it all
Before you're walking away

Oh I wanna be the one to guide you
Show you what's what and just what I'd do
But if I'm ever not right beside you
You'll always be my baby
Track Name: Becca
Meet me by the tilt-a-whirl at the county fair
With snowballs in your hands, I will find you there
And the ride will never end
Round and round and round again
Now I'm dizzy and out of place
All I want is just to see your face

Who will be the judge of us?
Where is right and wrong?
Watching "Psycho" on our own with our parents gone
Matching jackets on our backs
Subtle hints of what we lack
When this slideshow is through how will I best remember you?
I cannot make that choice
All I want is just to hear your voice

I cannot fill that space
All I want is just to see your face
Track Name: You
This time next week you'll be in my arms
It's been too long since you were
The time will fly. By the end you will know
I'm as delightful as ever

This time last year we met at a party
Thrown by a mutual friend
We drank too much, kissed on the porch
And I asked to see you again

This time in two weeks you'll be back home
And you'll go over it in your head
What do I bring to the table and how would
Your life be without me instead

This time next month we'll talk on the phone
And you'll break it the best that you can
I'll take it as well as a tolling death bell
And try to keep the conversation from ending...

We'll run into each other this time next year I would guess
You'll talk about your life
I'm jealous of all the time I've missed
In the car I'll play you songs I've written
You used to be impressed
I'll tell you how bad I have missed you
And you'll almost feel it
You'll almost feel it yeah
You
