Track Name: Sleeping Alone
I’ve been finding myself sleeping alone in hotel rooms trying to get back home
To you, babe, where I belong
I’ve been losing the time of day just thinking about the ways
That I could get back to you

So let me go home
I know my slice of heaven is you
So let me hold you again
I’ve been staying alive just to find you again

I’ve been losing myself on Friday nights hearing your voice through satellites
‘Cause you’re so far away
And it’s true we’ve been to such heights but only in our memories until the next night
So I’m trying to get back to you

So let me go home
I know my slice of heaven is you
So let me hold you again
I’ve been staying alive just to find you again

Well I’m the man for you
Tell me does he do for you the things that I can do
I wear my big ol’ heart on my sleeve
For you, only for you

So let me go home
I know my slice of heaven is you
So let me hold you again
I’ve been staying alive just to find you again
Track Name: Hold Me
Baby do you even want this?
I can’t get you by yourself
I’m worried don’t you see me shaking?
I think that I might be losing my health

So hold me, make me believe
That I’m the only thing you need
Give me your love I can’t get enough
It’s the only thing I want so hold me

I’m falling, face-planting in bullshit
I’ve got my head wrapped up in your mess
Speak easy don’t forget you’re near me
I see two heads sitting on that neck
Track Name: Spread Too Thin
This river here just seems to all ways flow
And I don’t quite understand how some people just go go go
Well, this old train just seems to never slow
And no matter what I do they’re just asking of me more more and more

But sometimes I just feel like I’m spread way too thin
And if it’s easy breezy, complicate it move around the pieces
Babe you make it hard to win

Stickin’ my neck out oh don’t let it be wrung out girl you make me see
That baby I’ve been strung out, time’s about run out and oh you make me weep
Now just sitting outside here I’m just getting by here and then you come to me
But I can’t hardly listen and I refuse to sit in on your lecturing

‘Cause sometimes I just feel like I’m spread way too thin
And if it’s easy breezy, complicate it move around the pieces
Babe you make it hard to win

(Well) I, I’m just resting my head
‘cause I’ve got a million trillion other things I could do instead

But sometimes I just feel like I’m spread way too thin
And if it’s easy breezy, complicate it move around the pieces
Babe you make it hard to win

But sometimes I just feel like I’m spread way too thin
And if it’s easy breezy, complicate it move around the pieces
Babe you make it hard to win
Track Name: Fever (Live at Critical Recordings)
Let’s both get drunk in a bathroom stall
In our high school with the lights out and run through the halls
Naked ‘cause we’re naked and don’t care at all

Let’s both find out where we left ourselves
And get back to the task of just raising hell
‘Cause we’re young and in love and it’s what we do well

So let go with me hold with me I’ll give control of me
You’ve got that something I never did foresee
But it’s evil baby it’s evil calling for me

You got that feeling you give to me fever
But it’s all right with me when I’m in between your knees
You shake it for me work it slowly I’ll beg for more
This time again tomorrow you and me babe oh let’s lock that door


I want to jump off the roof with a sheet for a chute
Oh I’m drunk in love and childish for you
Oh you make me act a fool

I want to fall for you you know I call for you
Most everyday
But I’m starting to wonder what’s the point anyway?

Oh
By you I break a sweat
You make me sweat
By your loving I’m heaven sent
Oh [once]
Track Name: Moments (Live at Critical Recordings)
Wake up think you need to change up
I’ve done felt like this before
Fast ball think that you can catch all
I’ve been looking for your curves

Don’t move too slow don’t move too fast
Only the pictures will last
Don’t look ahead don’t look behind
Or all these moments will pass you by

Save me I’ve been going crazy
Thinking about all the times
Long weekends I spent under my ceilings
Thinking that I was out to find

Well I thought I had the world in my hand
But I did not plan the work and I did not work the plan
Track Name: Anymore (Live at Critical Recordings)
Falling losing control
It’s taking its toll
Wake it’s time to realize
Now that it’s over it’s over

And I don’t need you now anymore
I don’t see you now where’d you go?
I don’t need you now anymore
Now that you’re going you’re going gone

Shake up my mind
It’s taking its time
Facing my fears I’m hurting
I’m wanting you dear
Track Name: Heartbreak Railroad (Live at Critical Recordings)
I’ll fight this before I lie down
I’ve got this under my thumb

Don’t leave me standing here on my own
I’ll hold you close to me do you want to know
How much my heart can break?
How long before I’m repaid?

And if you’re trembling under the sun
Would a blanket keep you warm?
How long before it’s all gone?
How long oh how long?

You steal my heart and soul
I can’t rewind, it’s all I know

And if some things are better left unsaid
I’ll be better off maybe when I am dead
If you steal all that I have what’s left for you to demand?

And if I tried my best would you beat me the same?
Or would you show me mercy would you show me shame?
The light’s only followed by dark when it goes too far
Track Name: Go (Live at Critical Recordings)
I’m staring into the darkness and its walls come caving in
I know no reason for this early end
I feel no earthquake I feel no ground shake
Just hold my head up to the sky

And if these high ceilings will be falling in
Don’t tell me when just grab my hand
And if these lights shine so bright that darkness seems right
Don’t hold my ankles just let me fall in

Just let me go
Just let me go

I’m staring into the darkness and it’s staring right back at me
I feel so empty I feel so free
And if this home is what you need don’t worry about bothering me
Just take it for your self oh take it please

‘Cause the exclusion of my useless constitution gave you all I had but it was no resolution
Take what you want take what you need take what you please just forget all the confusion
You say it’s all right
Take me out into the night
Track Name: Not Today (Live at Critical Recordings)
Walking down the street with the people at my feet
Say I want to read a newspaper today
But Wayman say no way
No not today

Walk down to the corner say I want a magazine
Say I’ll read a magazine today
But wait man, Wayman say no way
No not today

And you know

And you know
Not today

Walk down to the corner say I want to cross the street
But the crosswalk man he say you cannot cross the street here not today
No not today

And you know
Not today

Walk out my apartment say I want the ramen noodle
So I walk to restaurant say I want chicken but they only have beef flavor
No not today

Here we go
