Track Name: Wheels
The wheels keep a turnin'
Yeah the wheels keep a turnin' round
So pick your head up darling
Quit staring at the ground
Your fingertips they graze my lips
And oh my god I'm turning on
And I don't care if I don't know
Just exactly where we're going
Or where we're not

Ok fine, I like you
So go ahead, make your move
Just try me, cause I'm ready
Yeah I'm ready for you
Ooh, yeah I'm ready for you

Well I know no one I work all day
But somehow think I'm moving forward
And honestly I can say you're the only thing
I'm looking toward
Your pretty face it kills me
When you wink that way I feel it deep down
But the wheels keep a turnin'
Yeah the wheels keep a turnin' round

Ok fine, I like you
So go ahead, make your move
Just try me, and I'll be ready
Ready when ya do
Ooh, yeah I'm ready for you

But let's be reckless, let's try something new
Find what matters, have nothing to prove
Take all we want just to throw it away
And make a statement with nothing to say

Well I'll be that someone you can tame
You name it baby it's yours
I don't care who you were yesterday
I'll love you every way of course
I realize how I've got it,
Yes I realize now I've got it bad
But the wheels they're a turnin'
And they're turnin' pretty fast

And ok fine, I like you
So go ahead, make your move
Just try me, cause I'm ready
Said I'm ready for you
Ooh, yeah I'm ready for you
Track Name: Tomorrow Morning
I go to bed knowing that
I'll hate tomorrow morning again
Some lights will be too bright
While all the others will turn red
And it's all because
I don't sleep too much these days

My roommates talk too loud
When they're all drunk like I am now
Sing in whispers to the mirrors
But they never clap and shout
I'll give ya twenty bucks
To stop by the liquor store
On your way home

I ignore the phone when my mom calls
And I know that makes me an asshole
But it's hard to talk when ya gotta hang up
Hell it's hard to talk at all
And if I complain about being far away
Well I'm a fuckin hypocrite

Pretty please give me your number
See you've kept me from my slumber
And when you walked by dressed to the nines
You stuck and then I wondered
Do ya think you could
Be into good for a change
Because I think you might
Already kinda like me
Track Name: Chasing A Feeling
The sun is coming up
But I'm still awake from yesterday
Ooh and I, I felt alive
Up on that roof, up there with you

Just chasing a feeling
Hearing my heart
And the one thing I know now
Is I like who you are

Some days I'm up
And some days I'm down
Some days I don't know
If I can turn it around
Unplugged the alarm
And turned off my phone
So if you find me here
You'll find me alone

And I know we're all trying
Just trying our best
But I'm sick of surviving
Along with the rest

Ooh and why, why are they so mad
Haven't they been young
Haven't they been in love
So don't tell me to come down
Let me be in the now
Cause I don't need to sleep
To see all my dreams

And you're just like them man
You're chained to a desk
Can't ya see you're surviving
Along with the rest

Well I like you baby
And I like how you smell
And I like how you take me
Out of the well
So if you find me here
You'll find me alone
Just pull back the shades
And let me go

Chasing that feeling
Hearing my heart
Cause the one thing I know now
Is I like who you are
Track Name: Just Don't
Well I guess we began when ya left that other man to be alone
Met me in a bar flirtin at my birthday party
And ooh, I said let me take ya home
But you said no no no no no
You said no

Anniversary date more than fashionably late but it was cute
Tell me what's under your makeup
Promise never to ever break up with you
I love everything we do

Drinks with an old friend, I trusted your judgement
But you were wrong, yeah you were wrong
Two or three or four more and you're slammin the door
And ooh, ain't it time I took ya home
Oh no no no no no. Oh no.

Got too used to the headaches
The waking and staying up late's lost its fun
And I'm sick of saying sorry babe
Sick of wondering where you are baby
Ooh if you love 'em let 'em go

So don't bother with no apologies, just don't, just don't
And don't call me at two in the morning, just don't, just don't
And if you think I care if you still care for me
Well I don't, no I don't
Ya been going for a long time, going going gone
Yeah you're gone

But if you wanna know how I don't sink
Well I hold my breath and I kick my feet
Cause not all of us find it easy to float

Well now I'm sick of the missing
Was the love worth our yelling, maybe so, yeah maybe so
And now that some time's passed
My bed's at its loneliest
Ooh won't you let me take you home
Oh no no no no no, oh no

But you're too cute to hate darlin
I'm too drunk anyway, nothing's new
I just can't wait to sleep in, said I can't wait to sleep in
With you
And I still love everything we do

Ooooh
Track Name: New York
This sunny day's been patient waiting for the rain to stop
And my pillow's thanking God that it can breathe
Finally out of bed, finally excited, on the up and up
All to take a walk with you down the street

So while you're in New York
With the lights, dreams, and whores
Think of me waiting
Yeah think of me waiting

Think I wrote this song for you but you'll never prove it
But if you ask me later I guess you could make me budge
Made a ring for you yesterday out of paper
It don't fit the right finger but it's close enough

So while I'm in Miami
With my ex, the booze, and heat
I'll think of you waiting
Said I'll think of you waiting

Wanna know something about me how bout this one
I'm just glad that you're my new friend
Said it's three weeks in June that you'll be gone
I ain't gonna lie I can't wait for them to end

So while you're in Tennessee
With the bands and hippies
Think of me waiting
Yeah think of me waiting

So while you're in New York
With the lights, dreams, and whores
Think of me waiting
And I'll think of you waiting

I don't know you anymore
You're not my friend, you're not my family
Uh uh
Track Name: Thought Twice
Stuck at square one and run out of time
Growing as slow as that ancient pine
We swear to be true and we swear till we die
But we hold it together with excuses and lies

Thought twice for you cause I knew what I got
And I like to fight to be right when I'm not
But I gave so I'll take whatever I want
And nobody can stop me, no not a one

But who, who, who, who will love you when I'm gone

Came back for you cause I missed what we had
I was tweaking the truth, said the blues weren't too bad
But we've all been there, yeah we've all done that
I just can't live my life without being where you're at

But who, who, who, who will love you when you're sad

All this traveling's taught me more than I thought
Ain't it always the way, I dunno how I forgot
And the best thing you leant me was nothin you bought
I loved you long before that arrow was shot

But who, who, who, who
Yeah who, who, who, who will love you when I cannot
