Track Name: broken watch
i’m a broken watch
tick tock tick tock
you’re an alarm clock
wake me up wake me up

i’m running out of time
i’m running out of smiles
sir, lend me a dime?
i need an extra mile

i was full with coal
i’ve got a heavy soul
but now i’m filled with smoke
my life is a joke

i’m ticking ticking away
i’m getting slower every day
time always has a limit
and now i’m reaching it

i’m a broken watch
tick tock tick tock
you’re an alarm clock
you wake me up wake me up
Track Name: not what you said
am i so obvious
you are oblivious
i know i’m cynical
but you’re too uncritical

you say i drive you mad
well buddy you hit the nail on the head
it’s the way you said it not what you said
Track Name: no more mr. nice guy
hey no more mr nice guy
no more “what are you doing tonight?”
no more mr nice guy
you’re not worth my time

you said you were going to call
you said you wouldn’t be late today
you promised you’d text first
you said you were on your way

and i cried and i cried and i cried for a while
but now i’m over it and i’m over the denial

hey no more mr nice guy
no more “what are you doing tonight?”
there’s no more mr nice guy
you’re not worth my tears or my worries or my insecurity or my energy or my life
or my time
Track Name: what happened anyway?
(i'm in the car. you're driving. i say some stupid shit. i go inside my house. i don't remember the stupid shit. i worry. i write a song about it.)

did you say you had fun
did i say i did too
did i ask you to come in
did you say you wanted to

what if we had gotten out of the car
and danced under the stars
and floated up into the darkness
and spun closer until we kissed

did i ask if you’d hang out again
and did you say that you would
did you ask if i would die for you
and what did i say? did i say i would

what if we had gotten lost in the city
and i told you your eyes in the lights were pretty
and we went into the only open diner
in the bathroom you put on my eyeliner

do you think you’d have fun
i think that i would too
what if i asked you to come inside
do you think that you’d want to
Track Name: my student ID
thanks for my student ID back
thanks for the wallet in your backpack
thanks for my student ID back
good thing your wallet’s in your backpack

i would have cried if you hadn’t returned it to me
and i could have died because my ID picture is so ugly

thanks for my student ID back
thanks for keeping your wallet in your backpack
Track Name: you set me
you set me on your dresser
like a prize, a beautiful thing
you show me to all of your friends
but then i start to blend into the setting

you set me on the table
like a glass, half empty half full
you drink and drink until i’m gone
i’m no use after the last mouthful

you set me in your open palm
like something fragile you want to protect
but then you turn me upside down
i hit the ground, i break, i crack
