Track Name: How It Ends
This is how it starts
And this is how it ends
We could fall apart
But we could still be friends
And you could say goodbye
Yeah, you could walk away
And I'll be OK

One day I'll write a song for you
Without any chorus you can sing to
Is it this one?
Well, it'll do

This is how it starts
And this is how it ends
Track Name: Mostly Alright
Maybe you're a scientist
And maybe I'm just optimistic
Maybe we could step outside and talk about a thing or two
But you gave up on cigarettes
And I gave up on Godless girlfriends
Maybe we should stay inside and think of something better to do

I'm taking a ride with a pretty girl by my side
And it's alright if I don't kiss her goodnight
65 'cause we don't care if we get there on time
And it's alright for the first time in our lives
Track Name: Oxen Free
I know now that you saw me
Hiding under the oleander tree
I'm so terrible at hide and seek
But you found every single other one but me

Now is not forever

I could fall apart
Like I fell apart
The night I fell apart in your arms
Track Name: Peerless
We've got a secret or two
Between me and you
But now I'm battered and bruised at the news that you're leaving soon
And as I fight through the tears
If I can't say it clearly, then I'll sing it sincerely
I'm peerless without you here

At least we've never been dancing
Down at Hurricane Bay
No wine, no romancing
To amplify my dismay, today
Track Name: Jed The Baptist part 1
Take me down to the water
Take me down to the water
Take me down to the water
And wash away my sins

I've been drinking
And I've been smoking
I've been cussing
And dirty joking
I don't know what state my soul is in
So wash away my sins
Track Name: Leave The Day Behind
Pretty words to soothe your soul
But I don't know any words to guide you
So I'll whisper lullabies
And kiss your face goodnight
"Leave the day behind you"

This is not what I expected
This is not what I had planned, planned
Shifting my perspective
So take me by the hand and I will sing to you
Track Name: Jed The Baptist part 2
Sittin' home with a song inside my head
Sittin' home with a song inside my head
The song is not about you
Just you wait and see
So the words might be about you
But the melody's for me
Dee dee dee dee dee

Take me down to the water
Take me down to the water
Wash away my sin (Wash, wash away)
Wash away my sin (Wash, wash away)
Wash away my sin (Wash, wash away)
Wash away my sin (Wash, wash away)

Sittin' home with a song inside my head
Sittin' home with a song inside my head
Track Name: Party Favors
I don't know if you've been listening
I said "I love you" 'bout an hour ago
I don't know if you've been listening
I said "I love you", oh oh

Smoke your cigarette and lie to me
You know that I don't mind
You know that I would be more than happy
To return the favor sometime
Track Name: Jed The Baptist part 3
Take me down to the water (Take me down, take me down)
Take me down to the water (Take me down, take me down)
Take me down to the water
And wash away my sins
Track Name: See The Light
One of these days I will
One of these days I will
One of these days I will see the light

One of these days I will
One of these days I will
One of these days I will see the light

But until then, you can take your time
Until then, I'll take my medicine
While I'm waiting for you to arrive

One of these days I will
One of these days I will
One of these days I will see the light
Track Name: Ba Pa Da
You... you know that I love you
You know that I'd like to be more than just friends
You... you know that I love you
That I'm tried and that I'm true, and will be till the end

Ba Ba Ba Ba Pa Da
Ba Ba Ba Ba Pa Da
Ba Ba Ba Ba Pa Da Ba

Well, it should come as no surprise
I went with the easy rhyme and fell into your eyes
I drowned in an ocean of blue
It's you
