Cowboy Chloe 03:31
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

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

Rollerskate 04:11
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

Suddenly 04:10
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

Restless 03:03

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

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
8.
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

Toss Up 05:24
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
