Track Name: Cowboy Chloe
There’s something still and so surreal about the night that sometimes I wish it all away
Before my eyes I see a flicker of light that comes close as it echoes in the air
Did you hear me crying out?

Don’t you forget about me now
Don’t you forget about me now

I find myself among the thick of it all and slowly start creeping toward the edge
Tip my hat and try to face it head-on but the cows make the cowboys in the end
You can hear them singing out

Don’t you forget about me now
Don’t you forget about me now
Track Name: Lonely Boogie
Late afternoon turning into a late night
Newest illusion submit in the moonlight
Such a lonely little boogie that’ll last me ‘till the morning
Now that nobody’s home and I’m having a good time

I’m in my own head now and finding my way out so
Don’t tie me up I’m cutting it off
Running my luck I took the day off

Bobbing my head to a lonely reflection
Lively inside of a new conversation
Such a lovely little dream and I’m pretending to be sleeping
High again all alone and I’m jamming out so hard

I’m in my own place now and finding my way out so
Don’t tie me up I’m cutting it off
Running my luck I took the day off
Track Name: Rollerskate
Drinking from the steaming street
Filling up my lungs with heat
Breath out all that anger, try to find some inner peace
Shadow’s trying to run me down
Telling me it ain’t my town
Be that as it may I’m cashing in my favor now
Hid it in the basement, gotta keep it safe somehow

But it’s really quite a shame that it’s gone to waste
I was hoping to bring some home
As I slowly roller skate through a wall of hate
I was hoping to save my soul, but what’s it for

Tumbling down that hill again
Bodied by the rushing wind
Then I reach the end and wonder why the light’s so dim
Listen to your roommates hum
Down the hall as I woke up
Chair legs on the hardwood, think I’ll pour myself a cup
Sister for the weekend, love you still when Monday comes…

But it’s really quite a shame that it's gone to waste
I was starting to feel so whole
Feel like every single day’s such a piece of cake
I was trying to bring some home
As I slowly roller skate through a wall of hate
I was hoping to save my soul, but what’s it for
Track Name: Suddenly
Tell me when it hurts cause I can’t keep finding out
Tell me when to cry cause I can’t keep freaking out
Just what I convinced myself I couldn’t live without
Pure coincidence it never seemed to get me down

But

I’ll follow in tow
I’ll follow this into the darkness
I’ll get what I want
I’ll get it all so suddenly, so suddenly

Tell me when the light starts shining down on all I see
Point me to an open chair and I’ll take a seat
The song keeps playing on when it stopped I never heard
I keep running on never knowing where to turn

But

I’ll never slow down
I’ll follow this into the morning
I’ll get what I want
I’ll get it all so suddenly, so suddenly

I’ll get what I want
I’ll get it all so suddenly
I’ll get what I want
I’ll get it all so suddenly, so suddenly
Track Name: Keep Falling in Love
Night time is sweet when I’m by your side
Drifting asleep as the train blows by
Wondering how in the hell I’d survive
Without you loving me every day of my life

Every little thing you do
Is still driving me so wild I can’t think what’s left do
I keep falling in love with you
I keep falling in love with you

Take me away to a place so far
Riding on a train or we can take my car
Baby you know that I’m along for the ride
As long as I’m riding with you by my side

Baby don’t you know it’s true
I could try to think of a million things but all I wanna do is keep falling in love with you
I keep falling in love with you

Baby believe me, I’ve been feeling so high and I never wanna come down
Like I’m in heaven when I’m looking out a window feeling like I’m fast asleep
Maybe I’m dreaming, but it feels so real and I never wanna find out

Every little thing you do is still driving me so wild
I can’t think what’s left do
I keep falling in love with you
Track Name: Who Do You Know
Who’s in the mirror there is it someone that you wanna see
Is that reflection smiling back or could it even be
Who do you know here boy is it someone that you’ve yet to meet
Some promised company’s got you tripping over your own feet

Cause you’re singing all alone
And you’re dancing all alone

Are you still sleeping boy cause it’s late and now you gotta run
That big old disk up there’s still shifting all the is to was
Does it taste true enough cause it’s dripping right from your own tongue
Don’t know you’re living for the same as what you’re running from

Are you finally getting all you need
Are you getting what you want at least
Cause you’re singing all alone
And you’re dancing all alone

Now I’m singing all alone
And I’m dancing all alone
Track Name: Barely on My Mind
Missing every note but I never was in time to start
Singing every word even if they never rhymed at all

Baby turn it up I’m addicted to this song I said
Slowly fading out but awake in time to see you turn around and say goodbye

Falling off the bone but I’m cutting it too close again
Ripe red wine but I’m drinking from the hose again

Barely on my mind but sometimes I feel you there with me
Hanging on the side when I turn all I see is just a shadow walking down the street

Making up my mind just in time to watch it all unfold
Feels like such a crime ain’t that just the way it always goes

Play it back again swore this time there’d be a different end
Playing me out as I turn slowly take a bow
Barely even see the crowd
And you’re barely even on my mind
Track Name: Toss Up
Handoff a buck to my bud cause I know that he’ll play something we both enjoy
Try to lean in strain my vocal chords thin as the song starts to shut out my voice
Watch me pretend like I know where to aim when I toss up my paper airplane
You’ve been a friend to me can you believe that I’m trying to do the same

Side by side as I stare at the floor, lift my eyes as I try to meet yours
And be there and pretend like I’m strong enough

Hand you a smoke when you’re feeling alone and I’ll stand with you watching it burn
Out here existing as hard as I can just a phone light to shine in your world
Touch of the hand and a kiss on the head all that’s left when I can’t find the words
You’ve been a friend to me can believe that I’m trying to follow in turn

Take my hand cause we’re really alone in this world, I can carry you home
And be there and pretend like I’m strong enough
