I HAVE TO FORGET YOUR NUMBER BECAUSE IT'S BEEN GETTING ME IN TROUBLE LAST NIGHT ON THE PHONE I SAID I WAS OK ALONE BUT HERE I AM AGAIN OUTSIDE YOUR DOOR PREDICTABLY YOURS AND I KNOW THIS FEELING BECAUSE I'VE FELT THIS WAY BEFORE I'M IN LOVE AS USUAL WHEN YOU SAID YOU LOVED ME DID YOU JUST MEAN YOU MISSED ME BECAUSE I DON'T KNOW THE DIFFERENCE AND THESE FEELINGS GET CONFUSING NEXT TIME YOU VISIT HOME MAYBE I SHOULDN'T KNOW

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

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

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 WANT TO BE THE LAST BOY TO LOVE YOU WANT TO 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 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
12.

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
14.
01:20
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 
15.
00:42
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 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 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
16.
01:30
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 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
17.
01:03
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 
18.
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? 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? 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
19.
01:34
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
