Track Name: Lilith
Hoping that I made the right decision,
I'm sorry I said anything at all,
I should've stayed quiet,
I should've pretended everything was fine,

You cloud my dreams,
And every time I close my eyes you're all I ever see,
Won't you help me,
I'll do what I can to save what is left and take my hand,

This time as I look into your eyes,
well they don't look back to mine,
Do you remember the time,
We sat here and watched the sunset?

You cloud my dreams,
And every time I close my eyes you're all I ever see,
Won't you help me,
I'll do what I can to save what is left and take my hand,

You cloud my dreams,
And every time I close my eyes you're all I ever see,
Won't you help me,
I'll do what I can to save what is left and take my hand,
Track Name: Clear As Day
There's an angel in your bedroom tonight,
Clear as day under dirty fluorescent light,
We always said one day I'd get it right,
Well I'm ready to give up the fight,

He pines on his regrets,
After finishing off a packet of Alpine cigarettes,
He tends to forget just why he came,
And leaves in exactly the same way,

They say,
How dare you change,
But how the hell was I supposed to stay the same?
They know I'm all talk,
Because I'm all talk,

And I've met happiness,
She's always in and lives right down the street,
And after all these years she's still right here to get me right back on my feet,
So thank you May,
My weary bones will always know the way,

They say,
How dare you change,
But how the hell was I supposed to stay the same?
They know I'm all talk,
Because I'm all talk,

She dances round the room,
No knowing when she'll reach me but I hope to god it's soon,
You probably missed the moment, you were a room away and searching for a light,
And as she held my hand, I swear I could've died happy tonight,
Track Name: Don't Have to Wait to Change
Pierce your ears, shave your head,
Wait till two to get out of bed,
You don't have to wait to change,

Tell someone that you love them,
Don't wait till it's too late,
You don't have to wait to change,

Smile at everyone you see,
Try to make someone else happy,
Then you might be too,

Throw your old photos into the sea,
Become who you want to be,
Forget old memories,
You don't have to wait to change,

Smoke and drink if you want to,
Do whatever you have to do,
You don't have to wait to change,
Drive and drive for miles, leave everything behind,
Forget all that they said to you,

Get up at six and drive anywhere,
Feel the wind blow through your hair,
You don't have to wait to change,

Throw your old photos into the sea,
Become who you want to be,
Forget old memories,
You don't have to wait to change,

How I wish that I was you,
No regrets in what you do,
Letting life pass you by staring up into the sky,
But I'm stuck and I'm lost, looking,

Help me find my way,
I miss you like the moon misses the day,
And the sun the night,
Everything's not alright,
I'm sorry,
I wish I knew how to change,
Track Name: IV
Old friends getting pissed again,
If I close my eyes it feels exactly the same,
I wish I could go back to then,
Soon they won't even remember my name,

Please don't drive me home,
I know they're turning out the city lights,
But I wanna see the sun,
Yeah I wanna see the sun,

You thought I wouldn't catch on,
But I've danced here before,
We put on The Smiths and you moaned like Morrissey,
All the lovers and others who came before,
Thought you wouldn't notice when you looked right through me,

Please don't drive me home,
I know they're turning out the city lights,
But I wanna see the sun,
Yeah I wanna see the sun,

Mother,
I am so sorry that I'm letting you down,
Ain't it just like when we were younger,
Except this time I won't be coming back around,

Please don't tune me out,
I know they're turning out my lights,
But I wanna feel the sun on my skin,
One more time,
Track Name: Rainbow Road
Well I must've been mistaken,
Yeah I must've heard that wrong,
Tell me this isn't what you want,
You're just singing someone else's song,
Consider this a salute to the faithful-to-the-last,
Who'd stick around when your lights went out to clean up the broken glass,

Bet you thought you got away with it,
Bet you thought I didn't see you two,
Bet you wish it hadn't happened now,
Sorry but this one's on you,

I should say something smart, say something clever and try to change your mind,
Yeah I know it's too late, yeah I may have lagged behind,
It's another broken window at a house that I was not invited to,
One moment officer and I'll be right with you,

Bet you thought you got away with it,
Bet you thought I didn't see you two,
Bet you wish it hadn't happened now,
Sorry but this one's on you,

Well I guess you got away with it,
And I guess I've got something to prove,
Well you really shouldn't fuck with me,
And I never should've fucked with you.
