Track Name: Oh Abby
This city sleeps at night
I ain't gonna drive
I'm heading out
As she's heading home
...With her petite
...Chaper-O-one
In the backseat
She and I we collide

Oh Abby
No Abby
x3
Oh oh oh
Oh Abby

It's not very long
Till she's passed out cold
This could be-e-come
A five foot ten problem
Mean-whi-le my my
Mouth is getting dry

(Chorus)

We've reached our
Destination
It's time for
Evacuation
Now wake up, I said wake up
Now wake up, I said wake up
WAKE UP
Track Name: Nicotine
A cloud of smoke envelopes me
Lips painted red, she's so pretty
You're fucking her, while chasing me
You got me now, so let it be
You thrust us into your madness
You say you're addicted to us
You've been here far too long for that (when)
In my bed, you-say you want her back

All the ashes, all the lies
She's like nicotine
Hurts so good, but feels so bad
She's like nicotine

You'll get sssssicker
You're not with her
Can't you quit her?
Like – nic-o-tine

…You wear
You're smoking jacket and hat, yet
She's in my lungs, it's hard to breathe
She burns my eyes, it's hard to see

(Chorus)

Won't ya show me the way?
Why don't ya show me the way?

(Chorus)
Track Name: Blood Orange
You get around, that’s how you operate
No surprise, you have such a gorgeous face
You say we're having fun, is it
Cuz I know how to use my tongue?

You say that, we are just good friends
Then you suck on me like I’m a blood orange

What do you mean you want it to me be?
If you’re so picky, why did ya pick me?
You don’t need to say it, I know you think
I should give myself to someone else

(Chorus)

I don’t wanna talk about it
x4

Nice to know, thats how this is gonna go
I’m in a game I don’t really wanna play
But okay, you can have me anyway
Use me if it’ll make you happy

(Chorus x2)

I don’t wanna talk about it
I don’t wanna talk about it
Track Name: Crybaby (Dream of Me)
In your bedroom, dimly lit
You looked down on me as I
Sat on the floor and cried
I tried to cover my eyes
How do I walk down your stairs?
How can it be the last time?
Drove me home in your car
Left me at my back door

I close my eyes, but I'm wide awake
At night I dream of you
I see your back, but not your face
It's like you're fictional
You've become fictional
Do you dream of me too?
Do you dream of me?
Dream of me too

So quickly, you released me
Will I vanish completely?
Would you recognize me, now
Would you look a-way from me?
There’s was so much left undone
We had so much more to do
I’ll have to put you away
I hope you’re still cryin too

(Chorus)

Do you, dream of me?
x6
Track Name: Fragile
I'm fragile
x3
Don't pretend you didn't know

I said to let me down gently
But you didn't listen to me
Re-member 1 + 2 is 3
Now let's talk honestly

I'm fragile x3
Don't pretend you didn't know

Just like a car crash
You gave me whiplash
Just like a train wreck
You broke my neck
x2

What do say, it fades in time?
But first you know I'll lose my mind
You wear your scars on the inside
But they're just as ugly, as mine

(Pre Chorus)

(Chorus)

What did you expect?
I'm fucking fragile
X4

(Pre Chorus)

(Chorus)
Track Name: Boy
I feel like I'm more than I am when I'm with you
Let me dwell in you, all afternoon
I dress my best under my clothes every night
I wear the skin tight jeans I know you like
Booooy

I'm lookin fine
Oooo I'm tryin
I'm lookin fine
Whenever your mine
I'm lookin fine
But it's you that makes me shine

I make my lips, my legs, my skin so soft
Just in case your hands were to come/run across
When it comes time that we should part, will you
Still linger in the scent of my perfume
Booooy

I'm lookin fine
Oooo I'm tryin
I'm lookin fine
Whenever your mine
I'm lookin fine
But it's you that makes me shine
I'm lookin fine
It's not a waste of my time
Boy you know it's worth my while
To (see your)(make you) smile
Track Name: Sorry
You put ideas in my head
Now there's so much left unsaid
Hush, words that I must not speak
You can't go back and call us “we”

Now it’s too late to say it
Now it’s too late to say it
It’s too late to say it

Are you sorry?
Are you sorry?
Are you sorry you, you didn't say I love you
Are you sorry you
Never let me say
I, love-you-too
Always
Never today

I don't wanna hear those words anymore
I've heard them so many times before
Are they for you, or are they for me?
And don't you say you're jealous of me

Now it’s too late to say it
Now it’s too late to say it
It’s not enough to say
I’m so sorry

(Chorus)

(Chorus)
Track Name: Long Way Home
You were like my Northstar before
All these roads lead to your door

Oh uh oh...

These streets will always look the same
Too bad, that’s not gonna change

Underground
Over the bridge
Across the river

I'll take the long way home
The long way home
x2
Until you're gone


It's like we never ever were
So why are you still here?
I can't walk down these halls alone
Where ghosts of you might roam

(Pre Chorus)

I'll take the long way home
The long way home
x2
I'll take the long way home
The long way home
x2
Until you're gone
Track Name: XX
X X
(x7)

Get your tickets
I’m feelin wicked

X X
(x3)
Packaging, is everything
Zipped up tight
I’m so ladylike

Get your tickets
I'm feelin wicked
x2

X X
(x 3)
Packaging, is everything
Unrestrained
I’ve got an x rating

Get your tickets
I’m feelin wicked
x2

Wicked wicked wicked wicked...
Track Name: Guilty Pleas
Have you seen my smiles?
Can you tell they're feigned?
Watch and you’ll find no one’s
Gonna take your place
You live to walk this path
Through the aftermath
Left me to haul my heart
it’s getting heavy

If I were to get over you
I’d get hurt by someone new
X 2
I’m not gonna get over you
Just because you tell me to
Your guilty pleas have not spared me

In vain I tried to-oo
Self inoculate
Hand in hand were your words
Burning into my brain
Hid in plain sight, sans lies
With an endless supply
Of material to
overanalyze

(Chorus)

Have you seen my smiles?
Can you tell they're feigned?
Watch and you’ll find no one’s
Gonna take your place
Track Name: Pity Party
In your vapor I
Wore high-heels and stood by your side
Dressed as “we” every party
You’d find us sipping on G&T with blueberries
Like gra-vi-ty-we
always found our way UP to your bed
always found our way back UP

Underneath our feet
You serenade the party
You flaunt us in front of those here before me
Will she leave, or will we?
Like gra-vi-ty-we
always found our way UP to your bed
always found our way back UP

I don't wanna be your friend
I don't wanna see you
look down on me with pity
I don’t wanna be in the same room
With you, just to be far from you
But don't come look
Down on me with pity

My heels now touch the ground
I don't wanna flee the party
Is my number up?
Am I to become one more of your sad love songs?
At least I'd hope
another notch on your bedpost
another notch on your bedpost

I don't wanna be your friend
I don't wanna see you
look down on me with pity
I can't be in the same room
As you, and not be near you
But don't look
Down on me with pity

pity party
pity party pity party
pity party pity party pity party
Track Name: The Spins
Hold on

We’s not in my lexicon, lexicon lexicon
We’s not in my lexicon, lexicon lexicon
Won’t be somebody’s someone
Won’t be become another no one, no
No more no ones
x3
No not..

Forty
I’m getting dizzy, dizzy
Hold on
I’ve got the spins
Spinning
Around, and around

Dancing back and forth and
Making circles
x4
Day by day
By week by week
By month by month
By year by year by year by year by year
28, 29, 30, 31, 32, 33
I’m counting to…

(Chorus)

Around and around and around and around
