Track Name: Sad and Silly
Sad and silly I don’t how to say it
Paper stacks and my pickaxe growing heavy
The singing screen I just can’t bear
You’re no good to me over there
I need you here I need you all my own

You are like the cigarettes that kill me
Way up here the world don’t seem to heavy
Vodka drinks and too much sex
Television, no regrets
A dream of yours, a dream that’s all our own

When I’m done with all my riffs and all my rants
I will be ready to drop the beat and do nothing but dance

Spelling out the phrases as I say it
Bodies in the way God knows how you met me
The Middle East or Africa
China, South America
I’ll take you, I’ll take you anywhere

You will drive the ambulance to save me
Foot on the gas and the siren wailing steady
Broken bones and a shattered spleen
A weary heart dies inside me
Bring me back, bring me back to life

When I’m done with all my riffs and all my rants
I will be ready to drop the beat and do nothing but dance

I will go anywhere just not on my own
And I will go anywhere just not on my own
Just not on my own
Just not on my own, no, no, no, no

When I’m done with all my riffs and all my rants
I will be ready to drop the beat and do nothing but dance
Drop the beat and do nothing but dance
Track Name: Where I Would Go
Stumbled out into the cold that night I was shaking from a dream
Thoughts of you have got me on my knees
I’m sick of all this alcohol to help me ease the blues
I’ve grown tired of the way I feel about you

Everybody says to me: Well, that’s the way it goes
You can’t win them all all the time
I don’t want all of them, I say to those fools
I only want the one, and that is you

And I say, Oh! Oh! Oh!
Where I would go
Oh! Oh! Oh!
Where I would go
And how I wish that you would come with me

Spring is here and she’s been slipping moonshine in my head
The icy face of winter’s gone to bed
But I know you're leaving soon, so what am I do to?
I want all my summer nights for you

Nothing left to talk about, have all our words been spent?
If it's so, I couldn’t care where they went
Because I don’t mind just sitting here watching the world go
Count the dust settling on our bones

And I say, Oh! Oh! Oh!
Where I would go
Oh! Oh! Oh!
Where I would go
And how I wish that you would come with me

I poured so much into you I got nothing left for me
Got to get my head back on my feet
But I like hearing myself sing, what else do I need?
If you like it too, then sing with me

And I say, Oh! Oh! Oh!
Where I would go
Oh! Oh! Oh!
Where I would go
And how I wish that you would come with me
Track Name: Empty Living Rooms
I see the ice frozen to the window
I see the road a long way from home
And I don't know where to go anymore

I don't see you, smiling back at me
But I see blue, floating endlessly
And it’s strange I don’t feel alone

I see the fights that I wouldn't fight
All the brides and the grooms
And the empty living rooms tonight

The people that I loved
The ones that I couldn’t stand
And the lives we all made together

A mile of negative couldn't take all this in
Still my eyes are the imperfect tool
God can be so cruel like that

I won’t go back to where my life’s been
With the same head seeing all that bared
The world with her hair down

I see the fights that I wouldn't fight
All the brides and the grooms
And the empty living rooms tonight

I see rain over our first date
Snow in the city’s cold
The morning I was told I love you, I love you, yes I do

I see the fights that I wouldn't fight
All the brides and the grooms
And the empty living rooms tonight

I see the cracked moon overhead
The sun going round the bend
And everything is clear again
Track Name: Tomorrow
If I wait until tomorrow, tomorrow
Maybe then your heart will be changed
Say that you’ll love me tomorrow, tomorrow
And I will long for no other day
But I'm still standing in the cold winter rain

I’m not one to say I’m desperate
But sometimes there’s no better word
So while you’re wandering I’ll be thinking
Of all the times that I said I could
I am alone walking down snow covered lanes

I know we’re growing old
Still I hold on for the sunrise
To come shine inside of your eyes

I know after all
Everything I learned
I’ve still got no where to turn

So tomorrow’s now today, today
And somehow I’ve found a way
So now every day tomorrow, tomorrow
I will wake to see your face
And I’ve come inside, out of the rain
