Track Name: Buck (Weller)
Is it cool, if I leave
Will that be alright
The pressure is visible and cold

I have a long ride at least I think so
The same old album list
On the bus, the same just feels alright

I have a good life in a new place
A queen sized bed for once
I managed to make it down on my own

The faint emotions are retreating
The mood swings and the fights
Until I click, then the same just feels alright

I don't ask you don't tell me
I don't ask I don't have to

Reading messages you choose to ignore
Leaving clothes thrown around on the floor
I don't do that
I don't do that

Up at six just to look at my phone
Spending way too much time on my own
I don't do that
I don't do that

Just hold on I can't hear while you speak
I'd rather leave and breathe a sigh of relief
I can do that
(He can do that)
I can do that
(He can do that)
You can do that
(You can do that)
You should do that
Track Name: Lemons (Weller)
Spitting out lines that make me feel nothing
Spending all my money on the cheaper drinks
King and queen of boring conversations
Begging for something to help me think

I can't pierce your mind
And I sure waste my time

Missing out on the perfect opportunities
Wasting all my time thinking heavily
About how my relationships struggle
And what makes the short grocery list this week

I can't pierce your mind
And I sure waste my time

On those meaningless things
Worry harder every week
About the same thing I did
When i was fifteen

(I've gotta go)

Don't let your demons ever grow old
(I can't pierce your mind, I sure waste my time)
Track Name: Long Shot (Weller)
There are people I've met who are close to me
There are those i know who used to be
And now I've built a strong family
Believe me

So happy again on the road for weeks
Avoiding my vague responsibilities
Brushing my teeth with some Poland Spring
Believe me

Hand on the door
Won't give up like you did before

And these stupid nights begin with me
And end when we pass out close to three
I believe in you all like you believe in me
Believe me

Don't leave me

And I love to treat myself to a Hamms
And i love starting off with a difficult plan
I love to see the water as much as i can
Oh I love

And I love when a burn turns into a tan
And I love finding money in pockets of pants
Oh I'd love to see this car turn into a van
Oh I'd love to lose all of my plans
Track Name: The Emperor (Rue)
How do you get a move on the things you gotta do? You're waking up like you don't give a fuck, you make do or give up
on the things that you love but never in your life could trust.
I am through being used, I'm not confused I have gotta leave you.
I'm waking up like I don't give a fuck, I'll make do or just grow up.
I'm sorting out whatever it is I am talking about, at any given time I have given It some thought.
How do you?
Track Name: It Could Be You (Rue)
How could anyone want someone so bad? It hurts like hell. "It's not you," she said, "it's me." but how confusing that must really be.
It could be you, but if it was I wouldn't know what to do.
Aren't we all looking for someone to hold on to when it's dark outside? We're afraid of dying alone someday, loneliness is something to hide behind.
It could be you, but I don't wanna be the one to use.
I think you're saying that word to often, I think its awfully terrifying.
I'm not calloused love exists
It's the air that you're breathing in
It's the wind against your face when you feel like you're in the right time and place
Finally, so easy.
It could be you, howling at some beautiful moon!
I think we're on our way, its never too late. She said, "it's never a bad thing to love someone." I am trying to believe that. So don't let your crushes crush you, I think it's the worst thing you could do, give it some time it'll come to you.
It could be you.
Track Name: Reversed (Rue)
Things written many moons ago in journals I
left exposed made no sense, just jibberish
I woke up - alone - in a different bed months later, now I understand
To scribe feelings I couldn’t fathom, nor describe why I even had them
I understand now, it’s clear to me, things I felt but I couldn’t see,
I understand now, I get it I get it I get it---
You wrote it all out in a diary, and on a handful
of receipts.
You made it a point to cross your “T”s and
dot your “I”s
Above all else you had to hide---
Sentiments you never said, but you always meant them.
How to deal with the lies that we’ll continue
to instill in ourselves and those who ask the hard questions like, “what’s new?”
It’s been many weeks but I still feel your
shadow cast on me like rain clouds pouring down
Like the skyscrapers over this town.
I hope you’re smiling ‘cause I couldn’t curse the space we share presently, I just have to clean the one that we used to, we used to, we---
I think we met in a past life, it’s good, I guess, ‘cause I already died.
I hope you’re smiling ‘cause I couldn’t curse the space we share presently, I just have to clean the one that we used to, we used to, we used to...
We used to breathe the same air
