Track Name: I'd Love to Miss L.A.
I need love - all they offer me is drugs
I need love - all they offer me is drugs

How I'd love to miss L.A.
Like a long lost lover that barely got away.
I'd love to miss L.A.

I need a friend - all they offer me is the best
I need a friend - all they offer me is the best
the best in...
hotels and fancy cars, liquor and movie stars
broken dreamers, over-achievers
one-liners, part-timers

Oh I’d love to miss L.A.
Like a black & white movie that hardly ever plays.
I'd love to miss L.A.

He said 'don't go getting all big time on me'
She said 'instead of talking what you don't want,
start talking about what you need'
And he said 'I'd love to miss L.A.
Like I'll miss you in the morning when my words aren't yet awake.
I'd love to miss L.A.
Track Name: Uh-huh
Clock that ticks, time that winds. You hold me back I walk a line
between love & death and life & loss.

Happiness, oh heart of stone, I’ll never know from where you grow.
Has it all been said and loved and lost?

Uh-Huh
Bah-da-bah-da Bah-da-da-da-da
Bah-da-bah-da Bah-da-da
Bah-da-bah-da Bah-da-da-da-da
Ba-ba
Uh-Huh

I’ll seek truth and you seek you.
We’ll see that truth is self-serving too.
Has it all been said and done and bought.

Uh-Huh
Bah-da-bah-da Bah-da-da-da-da
Bah-da-bah-da Bah-da-da
Bah-da-bah-da Bah-da-da-da-da
Ba-ba
Uh-Huh

Is it wind or cars passing by that creates the illusion all things fly?
Has it all been said and loved and lost?
All been said and done and bought?

Uh-Huh
Bah-da-bah-da Bah-da-da-da-da
Bah-da-bah-da Bah-da-da
Bah-da-bah-da Bah-da-da-da-da
Ba-ba
Uh-Huh
Track Name: Little Wars
You make me feel like I can’t feel anything
You make me feel like I can’t feel anything, oh baby and
You make me feel like I hardly know myself
You make me feel like I hardly know myself, oh baby but

I am what I am and you are what you are
I am what I am and you are what you are
And we’re so much more than our little wars.

You make me feel like I’ve got potential
You make me feel like I’ve got potential, oh baby and
You make me feel like I might be special
You make me feel like I might be special, oh baby but

I am what I am and you are what you are
I am what I am and you are what you are
And we’re so much more than our little wars.

I read the news today they say we put our Gods to shame.
Then I saw it on TV they say the honey bees forgot how to breed.
And so I try to walk the line between caring and doing fine,
then your hand in mine and say baby let’s get high. Cause

I am what I am and you are what you are
I am what I am and you are what you are
I am what I am and you are what you are
And we’re so much more than our little wars.
Track Name: Borderline
Don’t know how to fall, I’ve surrounded myself with soft dirt & padded walls. Don’t know how to love at least that’s what I’ve been told by some. And history repeats what we promised to delete, but I’ll prove them wrong.

'Cause I’m borderline in love with you and I think I’m kinda pregnant too. I’m borderline in love with you but this borderline love is making me blue.

There’s something about that look in your eyes
when you don’t really know I’ve been watching you for awhile. There’s something about the words that fall from your lips when you don’t think I’m really listening.

That’s why I’m borderline in love with you and I think I’m kinda pregnant too. I’m borderline in love with you but this borderline love is making me blue.

And when you look at me well I might look away.
But my heart is telling me she thinks I ought to stay.
And my eyes might lie and you might not see there’s a sea of possibility.

That’s why I’m borderline in love with you and I think I’m kinda pregnant too. I’m borderline in love with you but this borderline love is making me blue.

It’s strange world after all and you could teach me to love or you could teach me to fall.
Track Name: Paper Hearts
A few pieces of paper and a story to tell.
I'd prefer scissors to a pen. Some quite time and that record you gave me playing over and over again.

Yes, I've drawn from the start the strings you could pull if you could only see. But I'll never tell and you'll never sell the heart you made for me.

Paper Hearts. Paper Hearts.

Then it all goes flat. We trade words like space.
Words I remember, words I erase.
You found the time to tell me your heart wasn't built for two. Well, it's not a tandem bike I want, baby it's just you.

Yes, I've drawn from the start the strings you could pull if you could only see. But I'll never tell and you'll never sell the heart you made for me.

Paper Hearts. Paper Hearts.

Late at night I wonder why simple called it a day,
so I offer you what makes me short of breath in an unassuming way.
In return I get a glance. Maybe two at best...
and a little miscommunication at no extra charge.

Paper Hearts. Paper Hearts.

Wish I knew from the start you could tear them apart.

Paper Hearts. Our Paper Hearts.
Track Name: More Rock n' Roll
I’ll travel this land bottle in hand, change lovers like underwear. Have mountains of blow like decorative snow scattered ‘round me in endless rows.

And when you find yourself in the arms of another remember you let me go. Remember I said as you walked out my door: I’ll try to be more rock n’ roll.

I’ll love my whiskey cause no man ever loved me like she does. I’ll even love his crooked smile if he leaves when the morning comes.

Yeah when you find yourself in the arms of another remember you let me go. Remember I said as you walked out my door: I’ll try to be more rock n’ roll.

You said normally girls are faithful and boys can’t keep it in their pants. Well I have to tell you darlin’ I think you might be wrong ‘bout that.

Yeah when you find yourself in the arms of another remember you let me go. Remember I said as you walked out my door: I’ll try to be more rock n’ roll.
Track Name: In Time
I’m alone in this bar on this street in this town
I’m alone in this bar on this street in this town because I found…

That timing is always of consequence and life is mostly defined by what you get…in time.

I’m alone in my head in my heart in this bed
I’m alone in my head in my heart in this bed once again…

Because timing is always of consequence and life is mostly defined by what you get…in time.

Falling in love ain’t a crime
Falling in love again ain’t a crime,
but the fall in reverse is more like a climb once you find…

That timing is always of consequence and life is mostly defined by what you get.
Timing is always of consequence.
But maybe life is mostly defined by what you give…in time.
Track Name: The Pieces
It’s always hard to walk away when you feel like there’s something left to say. It’s always hard to say goodbye when you can’t recall every reason why.

I can pretend my heart ain’t breaking, you can pretend your mind ain’t racing. But every word should count, every word falls from your mouth should pick up the pieces.

Life is precious life is good life don’t behave like she should.
Life is bearable sometimes unkind life is all you’ve ever left behind.

I can pretend my heart ain’t breaking, you can pretend your mind ain’t racing. But every word should count, every word falls from your mouth should pick up the pieces.

I thought I had the words right. I lost them last night.
Escaping the truth seemed right at the time.
Wish I had a button to activate something I’ve been searching for for sometime.

I can pretend my heart ain’t breaking, you can pretend your mind ain’t racing. But every word should count, every word falls from your mouth should pick up the pieces.
Track Name: We Could All Be Flawless
Falling slowly in love with nothing.
You said why’s it gotta hurt so bad
I said maybe just because it can.

And somehow I thought you thought of me
Somehow I thought you wanted me

But I’m checking out tomorrow could you spare a light?
But I’m checking out tomorrow could you spare a light?

Picture the future, our past tense like a river.
You’re running and I ‘m sinking low.
I always knew you’d watch me fold.

So I’m checking out tomorrow could you spare a light?
So I’m checking out tomorrow could you spare a light?

Cause it’s a long long drive and I don’t think I’ve got the time.

That’s why I’m checking out tomorrow could you spare a light? I’m checking out tomorrow could you spare a light?
No never mind.
No never mind
Track Name: Porcupine a Petting Zoo
When you ask for so little you seem to get less.
More, like height markings on the frame of a door.
Oh the child in me always wished to be taller
and the grown-up always wished to be smaller.

I’m a porcupine in a petting zoo but enough about me lets talk about you. I’m a porcupine in a petting zoo but enough about me lets talk about you.

If I watch too much TV I might forget how to breathe,
And sometimes the radio makes me feel strangely low.
And my ship set sail and the chips are down.
Oh but someone turned the sun off and let moon out.

I’m a porcupine in a petting zoo but enough about me lets talk about you. I’m a porcupine in a petting zoo but enough about me lets talk about being…

La la la la la lost
La la la la la lost
La la la la la la la la la la lost
Track Name: Break-ups and Commitments
I'm trying to walk away, but you're begging me stay.
Not with the words you say but with that look upon your face, the one that says:

Break-ups and Commitments are little deaths & I don't wanna die. Break-ups and Commitments are little deaths & I don't wanna die.

I once mentioned forever, I saw your face fall down.
You hit the ground running and without making a sound you said:

Break-ups and Commitments are little deaths & I don't wanna die. Break-ups and Commitments are little deaths & I don't wanna die.

So Goodnight Moon, Goodnight Stars.
Goodnight to all the lonely hearts hanging out in bars saying:

Break-ups and Commitments are little deaths & I don't wanna die. Break-ups and Commitments are little deaths & I don't wanna die. But I don't wanna be alone for the rest of my life.
Track Name: All My Metaphors
Do you sleep…do you dream…do you fuck…do you scream?
Do you always walk into a room like a run-on sentence?

I’m so in love with love that I could never let you hate me
But passion she just ain’t your friend, simplicity is my enemy.

And now this rain is not hopeful.
This rain is not brave.
This rain is not sadness.
This rain is not change.
It’s water falling from the sky,
water falling from my eyes,
water falling on me and all my metaphors.

You said temptation is for derelicts and lovebirds.
I said you and I are both at best.
Then I try to let you be but the great escape escapes me.
You remind me that time even lets the good things die

And that’s why this rain is not hopeful.
This rain is not brave.
This rain is not sadness.
This rain is not change.
It’s water falling from the sky,
water falling from my eyes,
water falling on me and all my metaphors.
