Track Name: Better on the Internet
I'm all right on paper
but I suck in real life
I'm over explaining myself every night

I'm already a fool for you
tell me that you think I'm cool

I'm much better over the internet
things sound much smoother when they're in my head
when I open my mouth
and no words come out
well I know you got me twisted

your friends are pretty cool
and I think that mine are too
I don't understand why you wanna meet me after school

I'm all ready a fool for you
tell me that you think I'm cool

I'm much better over the internet
things sound much smoother when they're in my head
when I open my mouth
and no words come out
well I know you got me twisted
well I know you got me twisted
well I know you got me twisted
Track Name: I Want 2 Skate
I've got a board
but I've got nothing to do
I can go straight
that's all I can do
teach me some tricks
why won't you?
so I can impress my friends
and buy some new shoes

I wanna skate
but I don't know how
I go down my block
and I come back around
I'd do some new tricks
you've never even heard about
if I could skate
I don't know how
I don't know how

my board is from Walmart
what does that tell you?
the wheel don't work
and I can't glide more than two
feet in front of me
it makes it tricky to do
I could do a lot more
if I was taught by you

I wanna skate
but I don't know how
I go down my block
and I come back around
I'd do some new tricks
you've never even heard about
if I could skate
I don't know how
if i could skate
I don't know how
oh if I could skate
I don't know how
I don't know how
Track Name: Seasick
last night I got seasick in my head
while I was dreamin' bout you while I was in bed
took my thoughts to the seaside
and dreamt about what loving you was like x2

call me sick
call me twisted
I'm not the one who's unrealistic
tell me what
I'm doing wrong
I can't seem to find a problem

last night I got seasick in my head
while I was dreamin' bout you while I was in bed
took my thoughts to the seaside
and dreamt about what loving you was like x2

call me up
call me out
tell me I can sleepover at your house
hold me close
don't let me go
whisper something that I wanna know

meet me by the sea
tell me what you see
hold me underwater til I can't breathe
meet me by the ocean
tell me everything
kiss me in the moonlight
til you fall for me x2
Track Name: Milk and Silk
you're my October
my cool night breeze
the kind where you
can wear jeans and a tee

you're my apartment walls
a new blank slate
pinnin' up posters cuz
I don't know how to decorate

you soothe me like milk
I can't get enough of you
you're soft like silk
I'm so in love with what you do

you're my car stereo
that can only play
some cds
that I homemade

you're my notebook
I carry with me
I confide in you
when I'm feeling lonely

you soothe me like milk
I can't get enough of you
you're soft like silk
I'm so in love with what you do

what you do x8
Track Name: Raining
it's raining outside
it's raining outside
(I have no clue what I say here)
it's raining
and I close my window
it's raining
and how will you get through my window

your friend told me you don't want to see me
your friend told me you won't be creepin' in
your friend told me that you already moved on
and I'm still hopin'
that I'll see you soon and you'll come
through my window while I'm sleepin'
so I'll pretend
I can't hear you
like we used to
like we used to
like we used to
like we used to
like we used to
Track Name: There for You
my body is sore
and I've got headache
I'm tired of listening to you complain
well keep it going
I've got good advice
it's all I do late at night

you can turn on the tv
what would that do?
you can listen to npr
there's no news for you
you can talk about me
and her too
as long as you don't forget
I was there for you

my car is cold
and my music is loud
enough for you to hear it
from inside the house
I'm your worse fantasy
and your best bad dream
I'm not all I cracked up to be

you can turn on the tv
what would that do?
you can listen to npr
there's no news for you
you can talk about me
and her too
as long as you don't forget
I was there for you

I suppose they call it a roller coaster for this reason
I suppose they form their opinions based on news from the television
I suppose there's a reason you never ever learned to love me so
I suppose I should probably just let go

you can turn on the tv
what would that do?
you can listen to npr
there's no news for you
you can talk about me
and her too
as long as you don't forget
I was there for you
Track Name: When You're With Me
the room's spinning
again
my eyes are rolling
to the back of my head
my mouth is dry
and I need of sip of water

but I don't mind
cuz the conversation keeps going
I can't think straight
his voice keeps on flowing
my ears are ringing
and oh I can't hear a thing
I'm gettin' dizzy
but all that matters is your here with me

you called shotgun
before we got outside
you played your music
I flipped the tape to the other side
I drove around
because you wanted to go for a ride

but I don't mind
cuz the conversation keeps going
I can't think straight
his voice keeps on flowing
my ears are ringing
and oh I can't hear a thing
I'm gettin' dizzy
but all that matters is your here with me
with me
Track Name: Uncle
I remember smiling for no particular reason
remember laughing for a reason unheard
remember crying late at night over the tv
when my mental health was a concern
remember breaking down the day they told me you decided not to stay
for reasons only you could understand
but I will try and pretend I can comprehend

why you left me
all alone
why you left me
now you can't answer your phone
why you left me
made me who I am
why you left me
I'm still trying to understand

I remember denying all the things they told me about why you went away
remember making up reasons why you would do the things they'd say
remember staying in the car and crying on that very day
for reasons only I can understand
but I will try and pretend you could comprehend

why I left you
all alone
why I left you
now you can't answer your phone
why I left you
made me who I am
why I left you
I just hope you understand
Track Name: Parties and Nosebleeds
you asked me for a drink when I arrived
I said sure but make sure there's no ice
I'm not tryin' to freeze my tongue off tonight

you took a girl upstairs who had nice eyes
I read your lips I think you told her that twice
I lost my jacket but my keys were on me all night
so I went home

sneezed so hard
blood ran down my nose
into my mouth
right down my throat
you laughed too much
it made me want to go home
last night at that party you forced me to go

I watch tv everyday
I hear that it rots your brain
but I'm still doing pretty well in school

procrastination doesn't make quality
but you seem to be doing all right to me
I lost your number will you call me real soon?

sneezed so hard
blood ran down my nose
into my mouth
right down my throat
you laughed too much
it made me want to go home
last night at that party you forced me to go
last night at that party you forced me to go
last night at that party you forced me to go
