Track Name: High Definitions
Feelin’ kinda foolish
Like you’re not yet grown
You’ve got high definitions
Of things still unknown

Maybe when you’re older
You’ll age into insight
Right now you're a child
Workin’ on getting that right

High definitions
It’s gonna take some time
To make the division

Do you understand
What’s right in front of you?
I bet that you’re clueless
About what you’re gonna lose

I wish I had a trick
To keep it all in line
But lucky, lucky me
I’ve had time to define

You know it when it hits you
You feel it when it breaks
You learned the definition
It puts you in your place
Track Name: Dontchu Wanna
Dontchu wanna
Stay over, sleep late
Watch TV, get laid
Make love or whatever it’s called today?

Dontchu wanna
Make coffee, cook food
Talk straight in a good mood
I need to do it the right way

‘Cause once in a while I get so lonesome
Get so lonesome I feel alive
Nothing’s more pure than an empty bedroom
An empty bedroom where my love died

Dontchu wanna
Make plans, make vows
Put on a record, play it loud
’Cause it feels so good at a tender age

Dontchu wanna
Get married at 23,
Seal our fate for eternity
And lock up my beating heart in a cage

’Cause once in a while I get to thinking
Get to thinking about my life
Nothing’s more pure than correcting your wrongs
Correcting your wrongs to make it right
Track Name: Back to Romance
Oh, it’s been a year or so
Ever since I held you close
And read your notes
I just want you to know

That it’s true
I don’t know what to do
We slip into an old routine
The lines and the scenes
Were never in my dreams

And I don’t know if you need a sign
Take the evening to press rewind

Oh darling
We’ll find a way to get
Back to romance
I’m trying to say
That I’m not against a second chance
So as long as we get back to romance

You, I wanna make you stay
I wanna keep you on my side
Straight through the night
There’s nothing I won’t try

I know you wanna take it slow
But darlin’ you’ve on my mind
For a long time
And I’ve got to make you mine

I don’t know if you’re just confused
Come on baby we’ve got nothing to lose
Track Name: Ghost
There’s a ghost in my house
She creeps through the halls
I had a name for her
Now I don’t

She’s got long dark hair
And deep brown eyes
Her skin’s all pale in the wintertime

And I don’t know what she looks like
And I don’t know what she loves
She changes when I see her
She changes every time
Oh I see a ghost every night

There’s a ghost in my house
She doesn’t let me sleep
There’s a part of me
That doesn’t want no peace

But when I look into that mirror
And I see my shallow face
An exorcism is all I really need

If I put on your favorite record
Will you come back?
Maybe Rubber Soul, or Mama Cass?
Track Name: I'm Reelin'
I wanna know if you understand
I gotta know if you’ve got a plan
I wanna see if it’s you and me
I gotta know, gotta know

I’ve got a knot in my stomach
My feet can't keep still
I tried sleeping without you
The hardest part of the deal

I’m reelin’

I need a way I can close my eyes
Shut you out of my line of sight
You can sleep in your big brass bed
I need a way, need a way
Track Name: Good Mood
I woke up today in a good mood
I can’t say that it will last
I’m not even sure if that is true
But things change fast

I woke up today with a bug in my ear
He told be to go back home
The last thing I plan to do this year
Is do what I am told

How rad!
But how long will this good mood last?

I woke up today in a good mood
I feel like I’ve got some luck
There’s no way to know if that is true
Is luck enough?

I woke up today with a thorn in my side
But it won’t keep me down
And I could sleep ’til the end of time
But I’d feel like a clown
Track Name: I Didn't Think
My eyes are heavy
My heart is weak
My hands are shaking
I’m losing sleep

I fill my lungs
Just to make it easy

I wanna do whatever I want to
Even with my reckless ways
When I lay my head down
I didn’t think I’d make it through the day

I know I’m young
but I feel so old
My ankles click
My eyes roll

I don’t wanna be bitter
I want a heart of gold
