Track Name: Please Don't
Please Don’t

I’m giving all my friendship
You’re taking all you can
I’m in this place, I need my space
No time to play pretend

I know you want more from me
I can’t reciprocate the feeling now

So please don’t, please don’t fall in love with me now
Please don’t please don’t fall in love with me now
Please don’t please don’t fall...
I need a friend

We’ve had some awkward moments
And I want you to know this
I value everything we have
but I can’t give you that

I know you want more from me
I can’t reciprocate the feeling now

So please don’t, please don’t fall in love with me now
Please don’t please don’t fall in love with me now
Please don’t please don’t fall...
I need a friend

I don’t want to turn you down
The last thing I need
is this friendship to run aground oh no

So please don’t, please don’t fall in love with me now
Please don’t please don’t fall in love with me now
Please don’t please don’t fall...
I need a friend

Track Name: Invested In Being Cool
Invested In Being Cool

All of your time spent on wondering what others want from you
You’re working your mind out by spending your time making rules
Your two cents is more like your ten cents it’s made out of gold
You know your opinion is nothing until it’s been sold

Invested
Invested in being cool
Invested in
vested in being cool
how’s that working out for you

The details, the details will drive you mad
You’re always involved you’re all over it, all in your head
Nothing’s an accident you’ve plotted your every move
You’ve practiced and everyone’s noticed, they’re noticing you

Invested
Invested in being cool
Invested in
vested in being cool
how’s that working out for you

What’s it like to be cool

The latest in fashion the greatest abandon of chaste
You read it, you wear it, you say it, you’re all in good taste

Invested
Invested in being cool
Invested in
vested in being cool
how’s that working out for you

Track Name: Backseat
Backseat
I wanted to take you to the top of the mountain
I was afraid to catch cold
It wasn’t fair to make those promises
wrong to give you false hope

I thought we’d find the summit together
I didn’t plan for such stormy weather
I though I would overcome my fear
but I just drove in circles all damn year

and I forgot about you in the backseat1
I didn’t mean to leave you out
Or to make you feel small
And it would hurt me to think you thought
I didn’t care at all

I thought we’d find the summit together
I didn’t plan for such stormy weather
I though I would overcome my fear
But I just drove in circles all damn year

and I forgot about you in the backseat

Afraid of the future
Stuck in the past
My head’s in the clouds
This worry can’t last
And good enough for right now
Isn’t good enough for me

and I forgot about you in the backseat

I can’t believe I let this go
On for so long
While part of me tried, part of me tried
To pretend that nothing was wrong

Rear view
Mirror view
Waiting for you
to catch up to me

and I forgot about you in the backseat

Track Name: Foolin' Around
Foolin’ Around

I find it hard to talk to you
I just want to look at you
I think I’m gonna have to kiss you
In order to get through, In order to get through

Let’s stop flirtin’, Let’s start foolin’ around

What’s that, why don’t you just hush
Where you goin’ what’s the rush
I’d say, I’ve got a mad crush
I think you made me blush, I think you make me blush

Let’s stop flirtin’, Let’s start foolin’ around

nothing happened but it did
i tried to fight it but the feeling wins
didn’t know i’d have to spell it out
i guess i figured you’d figure it out... you’d figure it out

Is it love maybe just a fling
It doesn’t hurt but I’m starting to feel the sting
I’m struck, you’ve got me singing
I think you’ve got that thing, what is it with that thing

Let’s stop flirtin’, Let’s start foolin’ around

Track Name: Caught Up In Life
Caught Up in Life

Needing my space
so I got my own place
Now I’m alone
I don’t feel at home

What is it now
I can’t figure it out
I thought this was it
but something’s amiss

Create a new fear
just to justify tears
need something to want
think I’m getting caught

Caught up in Life
Just want to be
Reliving old dreams
I analyze everything
Caught up in Life

No more excuses
I can’t dilute this
I will start new
my life without you

All of this time
you’re still on my mind
the pain in disguise
oh how I realize

I’m coming into my own
finding my tone
it’s the same old me
with some new found energy

Caught up in Life
Just want to be
Reliving old dreams
I analyze everything
Caught up in Life
