Track Name: caroline
i know that you don't think about me too much
and we can never hang out and such
but all this time apart it made me want to start
to maybe fall for you

i know there's other boys out there
all breathing out jersey air
they're all a ton cuter than me
wish there was something you could see in me

i've read all the books
and saw all the shows
but nothing could teach me the words to say
i want you more and more everyday
i know it's strange but please just let me say
caroline
oh how i miss you

deep in the back of my head
i don't know why
but i see your eyes your smile
i know i'm just a boy
the last one on your mind
and i don't know why you're on mine all the time

i've read all the books
and saw all the shows
but nothing could teach me the words to say
i want you more and more everyday
i know it's strange but please just let me say
caroline
oh how i need you
Track Name: it's okay
it's okay
you don't have to worry
life can wait
to be sorted out tomorrow

you'll be safe
you don't have to cry
i won't turn away
because i'm here to stay

so calm the oceans underneath your eyes
because with these hands i can change the tide
today, it's okay

one by one
i'll tear down your walls
and i hope you'll see
there's nothing to be scared of

so calm the oceans underneath your eyes
because with these hands i can change the tide
today, it's okay
Track Name: teenage breakup song
i'm laying here
deleting all your letters
hundred sixty character love notes
and i hope you know
you left my heart looking like a kaleidoscope
i just can't put the pieces together
because of you i can't stand this weather
the rain reminds me of your lips

i'm sure you're fine
you'll forget me and move on to the next guy
some better looking boy with a perfect smile
maybe you'll even stick around awhile
and do good on the things you promised me
like staying from now 'til forever
i guess i just wasn't worth it

this is my teenage breakup song
for the girl that couldn't stay too long
here's to all the nights i couldn't get to sleep
from missing you so hard

it's gonna be tough
walking around school
thinking about nothing but you
but i guess my heart
will find a way back home without you
i'll miss our songs
but i guess that i can find some new ones
with a girl who won't break this heart

this is my teenage breakup song
for the girl that couldn't stay too long
here's to all the nights i couldn't get to sleep

this is my teenage breakup song
for the girl that couldn't stay too long
here's to all the nights i couldn't get to sleep
from missing you so hard

this is my teenage breakup song
Track Name: selfdestructive nihilism
we pop pills in the parking lot before class
so the teachers couldn't be so up our ass
and we smoke in the boy's bathroom
it was normal because i had you

we'd get drunk and drive and try to get hit
we could die at any time but it didn't mean shit
the tragedy of course is that we made it
i can't look in the mirror, that face i fucking hate it

but you're going to leave me now
because you're tired of sitting around
you can't stand this god forsaken town
and you can't stand to be held down

i guess that i don't care
yeah i'll be fine anywhere
Track Name: october leaves (piano cover)
i stumbled in at three am
but you didn't want to
i tried again at half past ten
you still didn't want to

your hips have this way
of saying no way
an impenetrable barricade

something i said
something i did
what's made you so defensive
something you heard
something you learned
the seasons changing
it's for the worst

you used to call me on your break
but you've been so busy
you used to bring home tomato soup
but you keep forgetting

as the groundskeeper rakes up
the october leaves
it occurs to me
trees can't hide anything

something i said
something i did
you've been acting so different
something you heard
something you learned
the trees are barren
the leaves have turned

the days when we made it
the world was green
now autumn has fallen
everything's changed

october leaves

i woke up this morning
you were off to work
no kisses no coffee
no morning paper

october leaves
Track Name: sing me something sweet to sleep to
i don't mind if you forget me
or the accidental brushes of our knees in your parents' car
i don't mind if you regret me
or the times you woke up naked in my bed to the sound of my alarm
or the way you'd always ask if i'm okay like you could fix all the harm

do you still have that cassette babe
the one with all the shitty songs i wrote while i was gone
can you come light this cigarette babe
i'm exhausted from trying to figure out who i am
am i just another lost soul stuck in the cosmic traffic jam

well i guess i am
and it hurts
no more shitty dinners
down at kurt's

we've all got to grow up sometime
i guess this is my time
Track Name: oh captain
oh captain where are we going
i'm too far from home
oh captain your blood is showing
i pray to god we win this war
(and i don't pray for anything anymore)

oh captain my thoughts are sinking
much like the ship
oh captain what were you thinking
i sure will miss the rain on my window
(and i don't miss anything anymore)

all is fair in love and war
glass bottles outside the corner store
and if they ask we'll give them more
that's what our bad habits are good for
