Track Name: THE DOGS
SAW A GUY DRIVE BY WITH
TWO PUPPIES ON HIS LAP
MADE IT SO
HE COULDN'T SEE THE ROAD
AND HE DROVE UP ON THE GRASS
SEEMED LIKE A FAIR TRADE
TWO DOGS FOR A DIRTY CAR
I WISH YOU COULD HAVE SEEN
THE DOGS AND EVERYTHING
Track Name: CENTER
SAW YOUR BIKE
ON YOUR FRONT PORCH
SAW THE LIGHT
UP IN YOUR WINDOW
THOUGHT ABOUT KNOCKING
ON YOUR DOOR
BUT I WAS CONCERNED
YOU HAD SOMEBODY OVER
I WAS CONCERNED
YOU WERE ALONE

THE NIGHT
I FIRST MET YOU
WE WERE DANCING
IN THE LIVING ROOM
AND WE KISSED
IN FRONT OF EVERYONE
I HAD WAITED TWO YEARS
TO TALK TO YOU
HELPED YOU MOVE
INTO YOUR NEW HOUSE
LEFT HAND PRINTS IN THE CLOSET
BEFORE WE MOVED YOU OUT
LOOKING UP
AT THAT ROOM NOW
STILL HALF HOPING THAT YOU'LL COME DOWN

BECAUSE THERE'S SUCH
RELIEF IN COINCIDENCE
A UNIVERSE THAT FINALLY WORKS
HOW YOU ALWAYS SUSPECTED
WITH YOURSELF NEAR THE CENTER
AS I GET OLDER
I RECOGNIZE THAT LOVE
IS MOSTLY SITUATIONAL
Track Name: POOL
I THOUGHT I'D SEE YOU AROUND
NOT EVERY DAY BUT PRETTY OFTEN
NOW THAT YOU'RE REALLY LEAVING TOWN
I JUST WISH I HAD BEEN MORE HONEST
REMEMBER OVER THE SUMMER
WHEN I FIRST GOT YOUR NUMBER
I THOUGHT THAT WE COULD BE FRIENDS
OR MAYBE SOMETHING BETTER

MY HEART SKIPPED
IN NEW BRUNSWICK
YOU WERE ALL SWIMMING
AND I FELT SO HOMESICK
WALKED TO DEV'S CAR
TO MAKE A PHONE CALL
BUT YOU DIDN'T PICK UP
AND I FELT SO DESPERATE
IN THE BACKSEAT
SWIMSUIT DRIPPING
I MADE A PROMISE
THAT WHEN WE GOT BACK
TO POUGHKEEPSIE
I WOULDN'T CALL YOU
WOULDN'T INVOLVE YOU
I GUESS
YOU WERE JUST TOO BUSY

ONE TIME I SHOWED YOU A SONG
YOU ONLY THOUGHT THAT
IT WAS KIND OF GOOD
I NEVER PLAYED IT AGAIN
IT WASN'T EVEN ABOUT YOU
Track Name: NOT IN LUV
I'M NOT IN LUV
WITH ANYONE
WHAT'S WRONG WITH ME
MY HEART BEATS LIKE
A BOWLING BALL
THAT SLOWLY TURNS
AND ROLLS ALONG

I'M NOT IN LUV
WITH ANYONE
AT LEAST NOT THIS MORNING
SOMEHOW LOVE GOT BORING
MY HEART WAS BROKEN
AND I BARELY NOTICED
Track Name: SPORTSCENTER
I CALLED MY
FATHER AND
I DRANK SOME
BUDWEISER AND
I WATCHED TOO
MUCH SPORTSCENTER
WHILE I WAITED FOR
THAT WARMER WEATHER

AND IT CAME
LKE IT ALWAYS DOES
IT ALWAYS COMES
BUT YOU HAVE TO WAIT
Track Name: RAIN DELAY
RAIN DELAY
THEY HAD TO STOP THE GAME
NOW WE'RE WAITING BY THE SNACK BAR
AND I'VE GOT A BELLY ACHE BUT
FREE FOOD CAN'T DISTRACT ME
FROM NOT SEEING MY 'GADES
I DON'T WANT A REFUND
I JUST WANT TO SEE THE SUN

SONG ABOUT THE
HUDSON VALLEY RENEGADES
GUITAR PART WRITTEN AND PLAYED
BY DAVID GRIMALDI
Track Name: KNICKS
WHY DON'T YOU COME OVER
MAKE SOME DINNER
WE CAN MUTE THE KNICKS GAME
AND PUT ON A RECORD
HEAD OVER TO MOBIL
PICK OUT A SIXER
PRETEND YOU DON'T MISS HER
NOT ANYMORE

HOW WAS YOUR WEEKEND
DID YOU GET A COOL BOYFRIEND
YOU DIDN'T
BUT I BET YOU WILL SOON

WHY DON'T YOU COME OVER
SAME TIME TOMORROW
AND EVERY DAY AFTER
UNTIL YOU FEEL BETTER
Track Name: DISSECTION
SONG WRITTEN FOR
ELAIZA SANTOS'
SCIENCE-THEMED
COMPILATION
"SCIENCE!​!​!​!​!​!​!​!​!​!​!​!" (2013)
Track Name: BACK TO BACK
WHEN YOU SAID YOU LOVED ME
I KNEW JUST WHAT YOU MEANT
BUT IF YOU SAY IT DIFFERENT SOMEDAY
I'M OK WITH THAT
IF NOTHING EVER STARTS
NOTHING EVER HAS TO END
I WOULD GIVE A HUNDRED LOVERS
JUST TO HAVE YOU AS MY FRIEND

LET ME BE YOUR DIARY
YOU CAN TELL ME ANYTHING
RIGHT NOW I HAVE TOO MANY FEELINGS
TO TALK BUT I CAN LISTEN

SAT ON YOUR PORCH FOR AN HOUR
HUNG OUT AT YOUR HOUSE ALL DAY
SLEPT BACK TO BACK IN YOUR BED
UNTIL YOU WERE FEELING OK
IN THE MORNING
YOU APOLOGIZED FOR BEING BORING
AND I DIDN'T KNOW WHAT TO SAY

LET ME KEEP YOU COMPANY
WE DON'T HAVE TO DO ANYTHING
RIGHT NOW I HAVE TOO MANY FEELINGS
TO HELP BUT I CAN HANG OUT
Track Name: WORDS AND SMILES (TIGER TRAP)

WRITTEN BY ROSE MELBERG

RECORDED BY HER BAND
TIGER TRAP

ORIGINALLY RELEASED

Track Name: WEEKEND
I FEEL BEST
WHEN I AM
DRIVING EIGHTY
HEADED DOWNSTATE TO
YOUR HOUSE DAVID
WE'LL WAKE UP LATE
WE'LL LISTEN TO TAPES
MAYBE GRAB SOME BAGELS
GO TO A SHOW AND AFTERWARDS
RECORD SOME DEMOS

WHENEVER I FEEL
KIND OF TIRED
ALL I HAVE TO DO
IS CALL ELAIZA
JUST HEARING HER VOICE
MAKES ME FEEL BETTER
I JUST WISH WE COULD
ALWAYS BE TOGETHER
BUT WE CAN'T
THAT'S WHY I NEED
THESE WEEKENDS AWAY
TO SEE THE PEOPLE
I SHOULD SEE EVERY DAY

I KIND OF HATE THE TOWN
WHERE I LIVE
BUT AS SOON AS I LEAVE
I START TO MISS IT

THAT'S WHY YOU GOTTA
COME AND VISIT
NEXT TIME
YOU NEED A WEEKEND AWAY
YOU GOT A SPOT
WHERE YOU CAN STAY
Track Name: PROVE ME WRONG
YOU'RE THE ONLY GIRL
I KISSED THIS YEAR
AND NOW IT'S JUNE AND
YOU'RE STILL HERE

BUT SINCE THE END OF MAY
YOU'VE BEEN DRIFTING AWAY
YOU'VE ALWAYS FELT SO FAR
MOVE AWAY FORGET MY NAME
IN THE SUMMER YOU'LL BE GONE

BUT YOU COULD PROVE ME WRONG
I DON'T WANT TO BE RIGHT THIS TIME
PROVE ME WRONG
I DON'T WANT TO BE RIGHT TONIGHT

I KNOW I ALWAYS CARE TOO MUCH
IT'S ONLY BEEN A COUPLE OF MONTHS
BUT I'M SO SCARED YOU'LL LEAVE ME HERE
HAVING FUN WHILE I STAY HOME
YOU WON'T CARE THAT I NEED YOU HERE
SPEND THE WINTER ALL ALONE
