Track Name: How Could You?
Bought your favorite Kmart earrings
All those pretty little pink things
Anything that caught your eye

Only got you gold or better
Silver made your ears swell
And I never like to see my princess cry

I found a number in your phone
The fact I looked, I know is wrong

How could you? Why would you? You had it so good
Are you going to throw it all away?
You blew it, I knew it
It was only just a matter of time
Before you would stray

Bought you a twenty inch television
Not a big screen, I’m just a musician
Can’t afford those kinds of things

Maybe that’s the reason why
Is there another guy?
You’re going to ruin everything

What the hell is going on?
Won’t you tell me that I’m wrong?

How could you? Why would you?
You had it so good
Are you going to throw it all away?
You blew it, I knew it
It was only just a matter of time
Before you would stray

You call me a fool…you said,
“That number was no dude!”
“How can you not trust me?”
And you say

How could you? Why would you?
You had it so good
Are you going to throw it all away?
You blew it, I knew it
It was only just a matter of time
Before you would stray
Track Name: Comfortable In Bed
Never been so livid; so mad in all my life
You’re always pushing my buttons, making me lose my mind
It’s like you’re trying to hurt me and I can’t protect myself
Sometimes I wish you’d just desert me and go bother someone else

With one move you change the feeling
And everything starts healing

You look so comfortable in bed
Can’t get this picture from my head
You are so wrong, but I forget
Because you’re so comfortable in bed

You say you are leaving if I don’t make up my mind
But it’s a rough decision and you don’t give me any time
Sometimes it’s so perfect, other times it gets so bad
Is it all for love, or just some physical affair?

But just like a baby sleeping
Your innocence keeps me believing

You are so comfortable in bed
Forget all the mean things that we said
Why don’t we just make up instead?
You are so comfortable in bed

I could be wrong
But it’s taking too long to figure out
Is it you or me?
Either way there’s one place here there’s no doubt

You are so comfortable in bed
Forget all the mean things that we said
You are so wrong but I forget
Because you’re so comfortable; comfortable

We are so comfortable in bed
Forget all the mean things that we said
Why don’t we just make up instead?
We are so comfortable in bed
Track Name: Find My Way
I think I lost my mind
For the thousandth time
I find that it’s just me

I take some time alone
Don’t bother to answer my phone
That ain’t how it’s supposed to be

Did I do something wrong?
Because we seemed to get along
Since then I’ve been making up my mind
It’s all so unclear to me now
I know I’ll find my way

I sing a lonely song
Wondering what went wrong
Telling myself not to cry

You said all kinds of things
You gave me back my ring
I can’t imagine why

Did I do something wrong?
Because we seemed to get along
Since then It’s been messing with my head
It’s all so unclear to me now
I know I’ll find my way

Sometimes you need a lover
Sometimes you need a friend
Come on let’s stick together
I don’t want this to end

And I think I’ve done something wrong
Because we seemed to get along
Since then It’s been messing up my head
It’s all so unclear to me now
I know I’ll find my way
Track Name: Hard To Get By
And I want Looking at the time
to rewind
Just to see your face smile again

I feel so tightfisted
So caught up and twisted
Like I’ve lost my only friend

Sometimes I say
I’ll be better today
But it always just seems to go wrong

Coming around
To the bright side of town
I find I’m singing that same old song

How can it be so hard to get by?
When it seemed like just yesterday everything was alright
How can it be so hard to get by? We can try…
We can find a way? Will we find a way this time?

Day after day
I hear people say
That times are getting them down

But what can you do
When the floor’s falling through
Are there ways to turn it around?

I’m not going to quit now
I’m not going to sit down
And watch you throw it away

Why are we running?
There’s got to be something
That we can do for a change

How can it be so hard to get by?
When it seemed like just yesterday everything was just right
How can it be so hard to get by? We can try…
Can we find a way? Will we find a way?

They say that there’s a purpose
But I need a reason
They say in every prison
That you find a little freedom
Will you lift me up?
I’m ready for a change

How can it be so hard to get by?
When it seemed like just yesterday everything was just right
How can it be so hard to get by? We can try…
We can find a way; We will find a way
Track Name: All We Have
In this tiny, dark dorm room
Remembering when I said goodbye
So excited to go away
And live that college life

Watching my roommate Sherman Chen
Sweeping up the floor again
One bedroom, two bunk beds
Wasn’t the picture in my head

All we have is each other I’m told
All we have is each other
Just waiting for it now

Get off the subway, I smell piss
And there’s no one I recognize
I order a deli sandwich and
I end up dry-heaving the rest of the night

Going to miss my class again
Parents won’t leave me alone
And I’m wondering what comes next
And how it’s going to be when I get home

All we have is each other I’m told
All we have is each other
Just waiting for it; waiting for…

…All of the happiness of home
Everything has changed
No one around me
Can make out what I’m saying

You said you’d stay the same
You promised not to leave
But when the curtain’s coming down
You are right in front of me

All we have is each other to hold
All we have is each other; is each other
All we have is each other to hold
All we have is each other
Just waiting for it, waiting for it…
Track Name: City Song
I’m not a city boy
I’ve never lived on a seventh floor
So used to the comfort of my room

Never been on a subway before
Don’t have it at the Jersey Shore
I’ve got to get out of here real soon

I don’t want anyone to think that I’m a baby
But this place is surely driving me crazy
Everything is so cruel, just like back in high school
And I can’t figure out how to leave

Another cab goes by
They never stop, I don’t know why
Nobody even knows I’m here

I can’t stand here in the rain
So I think I’ll take the train
This is going to be one awful year

I don’t want anyone to think that I’m complaining
I try to get used to things but I just keep on straining
Everything is so cruel, just like back in high school
And I can’t figure out…

They keep telling me I won’t make it
I feel like giving up the more they say it
I just keep on hoping that they’re wrong
I want to be big again
Just like I was around my friends
I was such a superstar back home

I don’t want anyone to think that I’m a baby
But this place is surely driving me crazy
Everything is so cruel, just like back in high school
And I can’t figure out how to leave
Track Name: I'm No Good For You
Since grade school history
You were always chasing me
That teacher was such a bitch
Is that why I remember?

Came the summer of ‘99
Had to have our parents drive
It was so embarrassing
Is that why I remember?

Don’t you know I’m no good for you any more?
But you keep wanting me like before
I see you standing at my door, so I’ll just hide

We watched a movie at your best friend’s
You leaned in and I turned red
Two years off and on again
I can’t help but remember

Freshman year you moved away
Got a call on Christmas Day
You pulled me back to you
You always got us together

Don’t you know I’m no good for you any more?
But you keep on wanting me like before
I see you standing at my door, so I’ll just hide
Don’t you know I’m no good for you anymore?
Because you keep wanting me more and more
I see you standing at my door, so I’ll just hide

Are you sure you really want to know?
Because when I say this, you’ll probably go
But if you want to know the truth
I always loved you

Do you think I’m no good for you any more?
Will you keep on wanting me like before?
Will I see you standing at my door. Should I hide?
Do you think I’m no good for you anymore?
Will you keep on loving me like before?
I see you standing at my door. Should I hide?
Track Name: Happy
She sleeps with a nightlight beside her bed, and that’s all right
She says things better left unsaid, and that’s all right
She keeps me on my toes and everybody knows she’s mine
She lets me in sometimes and speaks her mind all the time

And she says; she says she loves me
And she says; she says all the good things that make me happy

I’d give her anything and more, just like I should
I’d give her the moon and the starts and the sun, if I could
Sometimes it’s hard to say just how it feels

And she says; she says she loves me
And she says; she says all the good things that make me happy

She sleeps with a nightlight beside her bed, and that’s all right.
Track Name: Back On My Own
Maybe I waited too long
For this mess to get sorted out
Was hoping that this wasn’t the end
But now I can see that there’s no doubt

I could feel me slipping away
Couldn’t get my feet back on the ground
I knew at the end of the day
You wouldn’t be here waiting around

Back on my own
No I can’t just be a friend
Back on my own
Guess I lost you once again…

Should’ve known I was wasting my time
By trying to get you to change
Thought that I could fix all your problems
So I guess in a way, I’m to blame

What the hell am I going to do…
…Just sit around here and cry?
Think about the things I did wrong...
…And try to get you back into my life?

Back on my own
I guess this is how it ends
Back on my own
Now I’ll have to start all over again…

People think I’m crazy
People think I’m lazy
All because I’ve been sitting around

People think I’m stupid
People think they’re cupid
But I can’t fix everything…can’t fix anything.

Back on my own
No I can’t just be your friend
Back on my own
Guess I’ve lost you once again…

Back on my own
I guess this is how it’s going to end
I’m back on my own
Now I’ll have to start all over again…
