Track Name: POINT NINE
I'VE ONLY KNOWN YOU 
NINE TENTHS OF A PERCENT OF MY LIFE 
AND YOU'VE ONLY KNOWN ME FOR 
POINT EIGHT OF YOURS BUT 
THERE'S SOMETHING IN THE WAY WE KISS THAT 
KEEPS ME ASSURED 

I HAVE NO EXPECTATIONS FOR THE FUTURE 
THE PRESENT'S TOO PERFECT TO THINK ABOUT THAT 
SOMETIMES I WONDER IF I SHOULD SLOW DOWN 
MAKE SURE MY HEART STAYS INTACT 

BUT I TRUST YOU 
BECAUSE IT FEELS
LIKE I CAN 
AND I CAN'T WORRY
ABOUT ANYTHING 
WHILE YOU'RE HOLDING MY HAND 

I CAN'T KEEP
MY HEART FROM BEATING 
TWICE AS FAST AS IT
NORMALLY WOULD 
BECAUSE EVEN IF
I WANTED TO STOP IT I DON'T 
THINK THAT I COULD 

DON'T THINK THAT I COULD 
AND WHY WOULD I WANT TO 
YOU'VE ALWAYS FELT SO GOOD
Track Name: LOVESEAT
SITTING ON YOUR LOVESEAT 
MAKING CONVERSATION 
WE HAVE IDENTICAL INTENTIONS
FOR TONIGHT 
AND I'M PRETTY SURE
YOU WANNA TO KISS ME 
BUT I'M TOO NERVOUS 
TO LEAN IN
AND FIND OUT IF I'M RIGHT 

I KEEP TOUCHING YOUR KNEES 
WHENEVER WE AGREE 
THE ROOM IS SO WARM 
YOUR LIPS ARE
OVERWHELMING ME 
THE WAY YOU FORM YOUR LETTERS 
EACH WORD JUST MAKES IT BETTER 
THE FORMATION'S SO DISTRACTING 
THAT THE CONTENT BARELY MATTERS 

YOUR PARAGRAPHS
ARE AN EPITAPH 
FOR MY SELF RESTRAINT 
MY PATIENCE IS WANING 
NOT SURE
HOW LONG I CAN WAIT 
BUT YOU'RE LOOKING AT ME 
WITH FULL MOON EYES 
SO SOFT AND CLEAR AND BRIGHT 
AND I KNOW IT WILL
BE WORTH IT 
EVEN IF IT TAKES
ALL NIGHT 

IF YOU KISSED ME WHEN 
I WALKED THROUGH THE DOOR 
I PROBABLY WOULDN'T
LIKE YOU AS MUCH 
BUT THESE ANXIOUS HOURS
OF ANTICIPATION 
WILL JUST MAKE IT
THAT MUCH BETTER 
WHEN OUR LIPS
FINALLY TOUCH 

SITTING ON YOUR LOVESEAT 
MAKING CONVERSATION 
WE HAVE IDENTICAL
INTENTIONS FOR TONIGHT 
AND I PRETTY SURE
YOU WANNA KISS ME 
BUT I'M TOO NERVOUS 
TO LEAN IN
AND FIND OUT IF I'M RIGHT
Track Name: STAY IN LUV
WHEN I FELL IN LOVE
I WROTE A SONG EVERY WEEK
THEN I STAYED IN LOVE
AND IT WAS LIKE I FELL ASLEEP
THE SILENCE WAS SO PERFECT 
I DIDN'T WANT TO SPEAK

THEN I WOKE UP
AND YOUR ABSENCE 
BEGGED FOR SOUND
AND I TRIED TO FIND A WAY
TO FILL THE EMPTINESS I'D FOUND
BUT AT FIRST 
I COULD ONLY WHISPER
BUT THEN THE MURMUR 
GOT LOUDER

I CAN'T SEEM TO STAY IN LOVE
I CAN'T SEEM TO STAY IN LOVE
I CAN'T SEEM TO STAY IN LOVE
I GUESS MY HEART
JUST BEATS TOO FAST
OR WHATEVER
Track Name: SIMPLE SONGS
I BELIEVE IN POP MUSIC 
THE WAY I WISH I BELIEVED IN GOD 
COMPLETELY
AND WITHOUT QUESTION 
I WISH THERE WAS
SOMETHING HIGHER 
THAT I COULD SUBSCRIBE TO 
TO GIVE MY LIFE
SOME DIRECTION 

CUZ I DON'T HAVE
A LIFE PLAN 
I JUST HAVE
THIS LITTLE BAND 
SIMPLE SONGS
WITH SIMPLE CHORDS 
BUT SIMPLE SONGS
WON'T SAVE YOUR SOUL 

THE ONLY THING
THAT SPEAKS TO ME 
ARE CATCHY MELODIES 
THE SAME CHORDS
ALL THE TIME 
E C G 
THE ONLY DAMN THING
THAT SPEAKS TO ME 

CUZ I DON'T HAVE
A LIFE PLAN 
I JUST HAVE
THIS LITTLE BAND 
SIMPLE SONGS
WITH SIMPLE CHORDS 
BUT SIMPLE SONGS
WON'T SAVE YOUR SOUL
Track Name: TWENTY
I GUESS THERE WAS A TIME 
WHEN I DIDN'T KNOW YOU
AND I GUESS THAT TIME 
WAS PRETTY MUCH MY WHOLE LIFE
EVEN THOUGH I DON'T LIKE 
THINKING ABOUT IT
BECAUSE EVERYTHING NOW
FEELS TOTALLY RIGHT
FEELS TOTALLY RIGHT 
FEELS TOTALLY RIGHT
FEELS TOTALLY RIGHT

EIGHTEEN YEARS 
TWENTY MILES APART
RIVER LIKE AN OCEAN
THAT WE COULDN'T CROSS
BUT RIVERS CAN'T
DEMAGNETIZE HEARTS
YEAH WE'RE MAKING UP 
FOR THE TIME THAT WE LOST
FOR THE TIME THAT WE LOST
FOR THE TIME THAT WE LOST
FOR THE TIME THAT WE LOST

EVERYTHING'S PERFECT
IT ALL FEELS FATEFUL
BUT I DON'T BELIEVE IN FATE
I JUST BELIEVE IN PEOPLE
BUT EVEN IF THERE'S NO DESTINY
I'M GLAD YOU ENDED UP WITH ME
ENDED UP WITH ME
ENDED UP WITH ME
ENDED UP WITH ME
Track Name: DON'T WANNA
I THOUGHT I NEEDED
A ROMANTIC SABBATICAL
AS IF LOVE WAS WHAT WAS 
MAKING ME SO MISERABLE
YOU CAME INTO MY LIFE
RIGHT AS I WAS GIVING UP
AND FOR THE FIRST TIME IN A LONG TIME
I COULDN'T GET ENOUGH

NOW I DON'T WANNA FALL IN LOVE
DON'T WANNA FALL IN LOVE
DON'T WANNA FALL IN LOVE
NOW I DON'T WANNA FALL IN LOVE
DON'T WANNA FALL IN LOVE
DON'T WANNA FALL IN LOVE
WITH ANYONE BUT YOU

YOU INTRODUCED
YOURSELF TO ME
OUTSIDE OF A RECORD STORE
AND I WAS GLAD TO SEE YOU
THOUGH WE'D NEVER MET BEFORE
I COULD FEEL MY LIFE
WAS GOING TO CHANGE
SO PREOCCUPIED BY YOUR EYES
I DIDN'T CATCH YOUR NAME


NOW I DON'T WANNA FALL IN LOVE
DON'T WANNA FALL IN LOVE
DON'T WANNA FALL IN LOVE
NOW I DON'T WANNA FALL IN LOVE
DON'T WANNA FALL IN LOVE
DON'T WANNA FALL IN LOVE
WITH ANYONE BUT YOU

SLOW BUILD COURTSHIP
MONTHLONG CRESCENDO
BEFORE FORTE WE HAD
TO START AT PIANISSIMO
WITH QUICK CONVERSATIONS
AND UNEXPECTED HANDHOLDS
BUT NOW THAT WE'RE TOGETHER
I WANT TO MAKE SURE YOU KNOW

I DON'T WANNA FALL IN LOVE
DON'T WANNA FALL IN LOVE
DON'T WANNA FALL IN LOVE
NOW I DON'T WANNA FALL IN LOVE
DON'T WANNA FALL IN LOVE
DON'T WANNA FALL IN LOVE
WITH ANYONE BUT YOU
Track Name: NEVER GO
I CAN'T REMEMBER 
WHAT IT FELT LIKE 
TO NOT BE IN LOVE WITH YOU 
BECAUSE ALL MY MEMORIES 
HAVE YOU IN THEM TOO 
THIS ABSENCE OF PAST 
ISN'T HARD TO UNDERSTAND 
BECAUSE MY LIFE
BEGAN WHEN YOU
FIRST HELD MY HAND 

I'LL NEVER GO 
ANYWHERE 
WITHOUT YOU 

EVER AGAIN

I CAN'T REMEMBER 
WHAT IT FELT LIKE 
TO NOT BE IN LOVE WITH YOU
Track Name: SPACE
I MADE SPACE FOR YOU 
IN MY TINY ROOM 
MADE MYSELF SMALL ENOUGH 
SO YOU'D FIT IN MY BED 
AND THAT SPACE WAITS FOR YOU 
NOT TO COME BUT TO RETURN 
A MONUMENT TO ABSENCE 
AND A HEART THAT NEVER LEARNS 

I KNEW HOW TO PREPARE FOR YOU 
AND I KNEW JUST HOW TO WAIT 
WHEN YOU FINALLY CAME TO ME 
I DON'T KNOW 
I GUESS I JUST THOUGHT THAT YOU'D STAY
Track Name: INVITATION
I THINK YOU'RE PRETTY
EVEN WHEN YOU ARE CRYING
AND I LIKE DANCING WITH YOU
EVEN THOUGH YOU DO IT BADLY
WORDS GOT IN THE WAY AND WE 
ENDED IT SADLY

YOU'VE MOVED ON AND
I'M THE ONLY CASUALTY
I'M SORRY I DIDN'T
MEET YOUR EXPECTATIONS
AND I'M SORRY I DON'T EVEN
KNOW WHAT THEY MAY BE
BUT WHEN YOU DECIDE TO
STOP WASTING YOUR TIME
KNOW THAT THERE WILL ALWAYS BE
A PLACE FOR YOU WITH ME

MAYBE THE SIGNS WERE THERE
AND I JUST READ THEM WRONG
YOU CAN ASK ANYONE
I'M ILLITERATE IN LOVE
I COULD NOT DECIPHER
YOUR STEADY STREAM OF SIGNALS
SEPARATE THE STATIC
FROM THE MESSAGES AND STUFF

CONSIDER THIS SONG
AN INVITATION
AND THERE'S NO DATE 
BY THE RSVP BECAUSE
WHEN YOU DECIDE TO 
STOP WASTING YOUR TIME
KNOW THAT THERE WILL ALWAYS BE
A PLACE FOR YOU WITH ME
Track Name: LAUREN
I LIKE THE WAY
YOU SAY MY NAME
THE WAY YOU
STRETCH OUT
THE MIDDLE VOWELS
SO THERE’S A SMILE
ON YOUR FACE
BUT YOU LIVE
SO FAR AWAY
I WISH THAT I COULD JUST
PICK YOU UP AND PUT YOU
IN A CLOSER PLACE

LAUREN
WHEN WILL I
SEE YOU AGAIN?
WHEN WILL I
FINALLY GET BACK TO YOU?
WELL I HOPE THAT IT’S SOON

HALF THE COUNTRY
ISN’T NEARLY FAR ENOUGH TO
CANCEL THE CONNECTION
WHICH HAS QUICKLY GROWN
BETWEEN US
AND I FEEL EVERY MILE
THAT IS KEEPING YOU FROM ME
AND I CAN’T WAIT UNTIL
THEY MELT AWAY
BENEATH YOUR AIRPLANE SEAT

LAUREN
WHEN WILL I
SEE YOU AGAIN?
WHEN WILL I
FINALLY GET BACK TO YOU?
WELL I HOPE THAT IT’S SOON

AND I HATE ALL
THE DALLAS BOYS
WHO FUMBLED WITH
YOUR HEART
BECAUSE I’D DO JUST
THE OPPOSITE
IF WE WEREN’T
SO FAR APART
Track Name: SCHMICTIONARY
I WANT TO TAKE
PICTURES OF YOU
EVERY SINGLE MOMENT
BUT ESPECIALLY IN THE MORNING
WHEN SUN'S POURING
THROUGH YOUR WINDOWS
BUT I DON'T NEED PHOTOGRAPHS
I KNOW JUST WHAT YOU LOOK LIKE
YOUR IMAGE IS INTERNALIZED
YOU GO WHEREVER I GO

WHO LOVES YOU BABY?
WHO LOVED YOU BABY?
WHO LOVES YOU BABY?
WHO LOVED YOU BABY?

I NEED NEW ADJECTIVES
TO TRY TO DESCRIBE YOU
WORDS ARE SO MEANINGLESS
WHEN THEY'RE APPLIED TO YOU
DICTIONARY SCHMICTIONARY
I NEED SOMETHING BETTER
THAN THESE
INSUFFICIENT COMBINATIONS
OF SOME STUPID LETTERS

WHO LOVES YOU BABY?
WHO LOVED YOU BABY?
WHO LOVES YOU BABY?
WHO LOVED YOU BABY?

I LIKE YOU
COMPLETELY
EVERY LAST
ASPECT OF YOUR
ENTIRE BEING
EVERY DAY WE
SPEND TOGETHER
IT GETS EASIER TO SEE
THAT YOU MAY NOT
BE PERFECT
BUT YOU'RE PERFECT
FOR ME

WHO LOVES YOU BABY?
WHO LOVED YOU BABY?
WHO LOVES YOU BABY?
WHO LOVED YOU BABY?
Track Name: LAST BOY
THESE CHORDS
HAVE PROBABLY BEEN USED
A THOUSAND TIMES BFORE
TO WRITE SONGS ABOUT GIRLS
I DON'T THINK THEY'VE BEEN USED
TO SING ABOUT YOU
BUT HONESTLY I CAN'T BE SURE
YOU PROBABLY KNOW
LOTS OF BOYS WHO PLAY GUITAR
YOU'RE THE KIND OF GIRL
WHO ATTRACTS
BOYS WHO WRITE SONGS
WRITING ONE ABOUT YOU
REALLY WASN'T HARD
I'VE ALWAYS LIKE GIRLS
WHO HAVE
BROKEN A FEW HEARTS

BUT I WANNA BE
THE LAST BOY
TO LOVE YOU
WANNA BE
THE LAST BOY
TO LOVE YOU
WANNA BE
THE LAST BOY
TO REALLY LOVE YOU
WANNA BE
THE LAST BOY
THAT YOU LOVE TOO

ALL THOSE BOYS BEFORE
ALL THOSE GIRLS BEFORE
ALL THOSE
STOPS AND STARTS AND ENDS
WE CAN JUST IGNORE
THE PAST NEVER ADDS
UP TO MUCH
WHERE YOU'VE BEEN
ISN'T HALF AS IMPORTANT
AS WHERE YOU END UP

I WANNA BE
THE LAST BOY
TO LOVE YOU
WANNA BE
THE LAST BOY
TO LOVE YOU
WANNA BE
THE LAST BOY
TO REALLY LOVE YOU
WANNA BE
THE LAST BOY
THAT YOU LOVE TOO
