Track Name: Books
I wanna lay in bed all day
I know that things could be better
I don’t listen to my voicemails anyway
And I know that if I died I’d still be alive with what is inside of me
And if I read more books, I’d get so addicted to their hooks
And I would become so clever, citing all those citable lines

Singing
Ba pa pa pa
Ba da da da da da da da da da da
Ba da da da da da da da da da da

I wanna celebrate all day
I know I could be productive
I don’t measure my efficiency that way
And I know that if I changed my name I’d be the same, I’d be the same
And if I read the news, I would become so boring
Spending my life pessimistically running away from sad stories

Ee ee ee ee
Ba da da da da da da da da da da
Ba da da da da da da da da da da

I got no resolutions
I look for the problems with easy solutions
I have no way of knowing
What this is about or where this is going
And I don’t appreciate being told that I’m small

I like to analyze my friends
Sometimes I’m critical of them
But if I look into their hearts, I can see all the moving parts
And if I lost my spark, I would be temperamental
I don’t want to be anything but something that I like to be

I hate the things I can’t control
But little things they take their toll
And I can pick out all my flaws, but I can’t fix or change them all
And if I feel too small, I start to get annoying
I would rather be myself than a second rate of someone else

I got no resolutions
I look for the problems with easy solutions
I have no way of knowing
What this is about or where this is going
And I don’t appreciate being told that I’m wrong
When I’m wrong
I know that things could be better
I don’t listen to my voicemails anyway
I know that if I died I’d still be alive with what is inside of me
With what is inside of me

Ba pa pa pa
Ba da da da da da da da da da da
Ba da da da da da da da da da da

Ba pa pa pa
Ba da da da da da da da da da da
Ba da da da da da da da da da da
Track Name: Don't Leave
I don't wanna be empty
I don't want for you to get over me
I don't ever want to feel regret
For the life I could have, or choose to forget and

I don't want to be sad
No I don't want to be sad
Does that make me wrong
Does that make me right
Do I say goodnight
Or have a nice life?

You make me soft
You make warm
You make me warm, warm

Don't leave
Don't leave
Don't leave
Don't leave
Me

I don't wanna be so weak
I don't want to act so naively
I don't ever want to do you harm
Am I really the one
Or a girl on your arm?

And I don't want to lose
No I don't want to lose

Does that make me loose?
Does that make me used?
Do I have to choose
Between me and you?

Don't leave
Don't leave
Don't leave
Don't leave
If you see,
then I'll see
So don't leave
Don't leave
Me
Track Name: I Know
I have all hands in I'm head over feet and I
Want you in my, in my dreams
You in my dreams
In my, in my, in my, in my

I have your hand sin my hands in my head and I
Want you in my, in my bed
You in my bed
In my, in my, in my, in my

Bed I heard every word that you said
and the rest I looked up when you were away
and the best you could do is just lie to me

And tell me you thought I was so pretty
And tell me that you love my company
But don't tell me you've already got someone

I know
I know
I know
I know

I wait two days and not even a "hey" and I
Got you, in my, in my way
You in my way
In my, in my, in my, in my

I have to say as I reach for the phone that I
Want you alone
Want you alone
In my, in my, in my, in my

Bed I heard every word that you said
and the rest I looked up when you were away
and the best you could do is just lie to me

And tell me you thought I was so pretty
And tell me that you love my company
But don't tell me you've already got someone

I know
I know
I know
I know
Track Name: je t'aime++
Je n'aime pas lire les nouvelles
Car je déteste les mauvaises nouvelles
Si tu m'aimes,
Dit le à moi
Je ne le saurai pas
Si tu ne dis rien

Plus que tu me manque
Plus je t'aime plus, ou plus
J'ai oublié la différence
Entre passion et amour
Les deux possèdent mon coeur

Le monde est grand mais je t'ai trouvé
«Somme nous plus perdus qu'avant?»
Je me demandais
Je pense à toi
Penses tu à moi?
As-tu oublié toutes les nuits dans ma chambre?

Plus que je t'embête,
Plus, je souhaite, un jour plus
J'oublie ton visage, tes traites
Tu me dis, «Andrea...»
Je dis, «À la prochaine fois»

Plus que tu me manque
Plus je t'aime plus, ou plus
J'ai oublié la différence
Entre passion et amour
Les deux possèdent mon coeur
Track Name: People Who Stay
Love is a game you can't win
I say something
You say nothing

Wait for it to begin
I say hey
You walk away

And you say you love me
And you say you care for the best
But you never trust me
And you always stare at my chest

I didn't know
There were people who love just like me
I'm always running and running and running and running and running away
I didn't know
There were people who stay

I didn't know
That my world could change suddenly
I'm always hoping and crying and changing and trying and running away
I didn't know
there were people who stay

People who stay
Track Name: Spider Bites
So
The love-maker falls in love
with a heartbreaker
I don't know
I don't know
I don't know
I don't know anything

So
The dream seeker falls in love
with a dream keeper
I don't know
I don't know
I don't know
I don't know anything

Spider bites in the middle of the night
don't measure up to the fear when I saw your ghost
I was scared I was unprepared
Where were you when I needed you the most?
Needed you the most

So
The toothfairy falls in love
With something scary
I don't know
I don't know
I don't know
I don't know anything

So
The music-maker falls in love
At the radio station
I don't know
I don't know
I don't know
I don't know anything

Lucid dreams of you and me
don't measure up to the high of the real, real thing
I gave up when I woke up and
I couldn't tell what I've made up
What I've made up
I've made up
I've made up
