Track Name: Do The Surfer Girl Limbo!
Hello (hey)
Hello (hey)
Hello (hey)

Hello hello my friend
Don’t you wave goodbye to me yet
It’s all alright, you’re feeling fine
Let me hold your hand imagine that you’re only mine
How low can you go
I wonder when you’re gonna wipe out
I know you know
Little surfer girl
You’re living in my town
But I’m living in your world

You’re a cannonball
Climbing up the wall
But ooh that’s a long way to fall

Surfer girl surfer girl surfer girl limbo
Hello (hey)
Goodbye (wait)

Oh oh oh ah ah ah
Go go go rah rah rah

Go go go be young
Go go go be dumb
Go go go get some experience, experience
We still got time
The night ain’t done
You try it just cause you consider it mysterious
Hey pass that round
Give me some
I want another babe I’m jealous that you’re having so much fun

Surfer girl surfer girl surfer girl limbo
Hello (hey)
Goodbye (wait)
Surfer girl surfer girl surfer girl limbo
Hello (hey)
Hello (hey)
Goodbye (wait)
Goodbye (wait)

Ain’t nobody’s fault
It’s just the adderall
It’d be better if you didn’t take it personal
Where’s my girlfriend
Where’s that vicodin
I need another judging from the sorry state you’re in

How low can you go (surfer girl)
How high can you get me (surfer girl)
How low can you go (surfer girl)
How low can you go (surfer girl)
How high can you get me (surfer girl)
How hard can you rip me (surfer girl)
How high can you lift me (surfer girl)
How low can you dip me
Track Name: Love Ya Self
Love ya love ya love ya love ya
Love ya love ya love ya love ya
Love yourself that much
Love ya love ya love ya love ya
Love ya love ya love ya love ya
Do you love yourself that much
You’re driving down the road and you’re not looking back
The interstate is turning into a cul-de-sac
You ain’t getting younger
But there’s advantages to that

Love ya love ya love ya love ya
Love ya love ya love
You know I love you oh so much
Give ya give ya give ya give ya give ya
Give ya give ya give ya such expensive stuff
But I ain’t gonna bring you another diamond ring
I’m running out of dough and you’re running out of fingers too
It’s true
I ain’t praying for ya
My god has better things to do

Cha cha cha cha cha cha cha cha cha cha cha
Cha cha cha cha cha
Cha cha cha cha cha cha cha cha cha cha cha
Cha cha cha cha cha
I wanna wanna wanna love you all the time
Will you could you would you won’t you
Won’t you just oblige
You got your future
I got something else in mine/mind

Need ya need ya need ya need ya need ya need ya
Need ya need ya need your particular touch
Didn’t mean to mean to mean to mean to mean to mean to
Mean to didn’t mean to make you jump
Your dad is in the other room trying to sleep
You don’t seem to mind but it matters to me
Uh huh, yes it does

We ain’t getting older
Our god has better plans
We ain’t getting better
Our god has older plans
We ain’t getting older
Our god has other plans for us
Track Name: Shade
My summer sun she can chase the rain
She can burn the wind away
I soak her up until I’m on my back
She always stays up much later than that
Yeah she stays up late late late
And she’s gone before I’m up in the morning
Miss golden sun shine bright today
And when she left she stole my shades

She was shaking like a cyclone
She was humming like a dial tone
She was leaning over me
She was blocking all the breeze
She was putting on a sweater
I was starting to resent her
She was standing in my way
She was standing there all day
She’s always trying to steal my
She’s always trying to steal my
She is always trying to steal my shade

Spin spinning around the clock oh oh
Much prefer we never stop no no
Once she’s knocked me flat
She tiptoes away to the thermostat
She’s sleeping peacefully
I am sweating out a fever dream
She is sleeping in a sweater and Loubitins
Never took em off since she tried em on
She don’t care about what I need
She is always trying to kill my breeze

She was spinning like a cyclone
She was digging through my cell phone
She was standing over me
She was catching all the cool breeze
She was putting on a sweater
That’s when I started to resent her
She was standing in my way
She was standing there all day
She’s always trying to steal my
She’s always trying to steal my
She is always trying to steal my shade
She’s always standing in my
She’s always standing in my
She is always standing in my way
She don’t even deny
She don’t even deny
That she is always trying to steal my shade

Why you always trying to steal my shade
And dull my shine and kill my breeze
Can’t you see that I’m starting to sweat
Can’t you see that I’m starting to breathe heavy
Can’t you tell that I’m not having fun
Don’t you know how you throw my equilibrium honey
Stop trying to steal my
Stop trying to steal my, stop trying to steal my
You are always trying to steal my shade
Track Name: Key West
The only think that I’ve been up to
Since the minute that I met you
I’ve been waiting for a message
I’ve been searching for a sign
Though you put me in a corner
Though you hung me out to dry
I guess I’m to blame for it too

Been hoping to find you
Since the moment you left me
Don’t wait for me, you said
But I hope you wait for me, you said too
Put it all on the table
Put it all on the line
It’s easy to say, it’s easy to say
But you’ve been away a long long time

It’s almost way too late for you to say that
It’s almost way too late to even try

Where’d you go this summer
When did you get back home
I think I discovered that I sleep much better alone
How’d you find me here
How’d you get inside
I think I’ll sleep much better
On the couch tonight

From the moment I saw you
Knew you’d never be all mine
Take me anywhere but here
Take me to the beach
Prop me on the bar
I’m not too steady on my feet
And all the bottles are out of reach
And lord I need another drink

It’s almost way too late for us to turn back
It’s almost way too late to even try

Just give me a minute
Please give me a minute
Just give a minute to think

Where’d you go this summer
When did you come back home
I think I discovered I sleep much better alone
When did you leave this morning
When did you decide
You think you actually sleep better
On the other side

Where have you been all summer
Who let you back in
I don’t even know where the hell to begin
Hold me like a secret
Love me like you did
We were only lovers
We were never friends
Track Name: Where You Normally Go
I wanna take you where you normally go
Wanna take you where you normally go
Wanna do the stuff you done before
In the neighborhood you already know
Not planning anything special
Not gonna try to impress you
I just want to see the way
You spend your time on a normal day
I wanna take you where you normally go
And that’s all

I wanna bring you where you already been
I wanna bring you where you already been
I wanna see you in your element
I wanna get you where you’re gonna fit in oh oh oh
Treat you like an old cliché
Tell you all the things that I normally say
Wanna take you by your hand
Make you make me understand
Why the devil that you already know
Makes you feel so comfortable
I’m gonna bring you where you already been
If that’s alright

Let me tell you what you already know
Let me tell you what you already know
Gonna tell you what you already know
Gonna tell you what you already know yeah
I’m looking at your TV screen
You’re standing right in front of me
I’m staring at your TV screen yeah
You’re standing right in front of me
I’m your remote control but you’re the battery
Track Name: Exit Tax
If I’m leaving you tomorrow
Then I guess I better start packing a bag
Get my toothbrush and a couple changes of clothes
My guitar and some photographs
The rest of it I just don’t know
What’s mine was always yours
But what’s yours was never mine
So the rest I’m leaving behind

And I guess I gotta be fine with that
Consider it an exit tax
Cause I’m never getting any of it back
Oh I know I’m never getting it back

If I decided to stick around
All this stuff would still be mine
A decent place to stay in this city
Lord knows it’s so hard to find
But what do they actually mean
These things are only things
As real as memories
When I sleep I hope I don’t dream

So I guess I gotta be fine with leaving it all behind
Considering it an exit tax
Cause I’m leaving and I’m never coming back

Hey I bought that stereo
And I paid for that runner rug
I watered that aloe plant
I walked that little dog almost every day
You take that lazy boy
You keep that runner rug
You always liked it better than I did anyway
Take my best T-shirts, keep all my sweatshirts
Oh I know how cold you get in the middle of the night
Sure take those shot glasses that we stole
When we were shitfaced in Mexico
Take my record collection
I don’t want to listen to any of those songs
They all remind me of you

Just cause you break it
Try to erase it
The memory’s always gonna chase you down
But I don’t have time to reminisce
I don’t know where I’m sleeping tomorrow night

I never bought you that purse
I never gave you those shoes
But I’ve always been yours
Yours, I’ve always been yours
You, you never were mine

So I’m taking the things I can carry
And I’m leaving all the rest
I’m taking the things I can carry with me
And I’m leaving all the rest
I’m taking the things I can carry
And I’m leaving all the rest behind
Track Name: You Had To Be There
Undercover other lover motherfucker
Don't you know I got position on you
Don't you think you're gonna get away with it
Don't you know that I've pulled all the same stunts
That I know all the same tricks

Every junkyard dog on the block
Hearing that we've been on the rocks
They're licking their chops and getting in line
And looking into you in the meantime
All at the same time

What happened between us
No one would believe us
You had to be there
I was arrogant enough to think that
You would never simply disappear into thin air
I was ignorant enough to think that
You could never simply disappear into thin air

Late at night it hits me
How I do miss the times
When we managed to align our circadian rhythms
Oh yes I miss em

Yet another guy
Let you hitch a ride
Take you with him the next time he drives down to L.A.
So what do you say

What happened between us
No one would believe us
You had to be there
You were paranoid beyond the point
Of believing that I could even begin to care
I was arrogant enough to think that
You would never simply disappear into thin air
Into thin air
Into thin air

I was ignorant enough to think that
You could never simply disappear into thin air
Into thin air
Into thin air
Track Name: Jackie
You've been making some moves
That your mama don't approve of
And your daddy is ashamed
But you're all grown up
And they were the ones who messed you up
In the first place anyway
You've been making me wait, hon
You've been making me wait
You've been making me wait for you
I've been putting on weight
I've been putting some weight on
I've been putting too much weight on you

Jackie in her party coat
Walking in expensive shoes
Let me walk right next to you
There's a place here next to me
Won't you keep the pace with me

Jackie don't you jump the gun
Jackie don't you run run run away from me
Don't run run run no don't run run
Don't you run away from me
Don't run run run no don't run run
Don't run away from me
Jackie

You've been playing these games
You've been playing these games
You've been playing these games with me
I've been going insane
I've been going insane
You'll see

Jackie in a stranger's car
Doing her makeup in the mirror
I've been trying to get near her
She's been pushing me farther away

Jackie don't you jump the gun
Jackie don't you run run run away from me
Don't run run run no don't run run
Don't you run away from me
Don't run run run no don't run run
Don't run away from me
Jackie

Who do you love
Who do you love
Who do you love the most
Tell me that you want me
Tell me that you need me
Tell me that you love me the most

Who do you love
Who do you love
Who do you love
The most
Track Name: Minor Nightmares
It was just a nightmare
You were having a nightmare
There’s nothing to fear
Nothing is real
You are sleeping
I see your phone ring
But there’s nobody there
Is there anybody there
An unfamiliar feeling
Is crawling all around around my skin
Or am I just imagining things again
Oh my god
I just got electrified
Can you see it feel it the spark of the light
When our fingertips touch in the dark of the night

Who did you say you were again
It’s all a blur
You seem to think we’ve met before
I’m just not sure
What did you say your name was
It slips my mind
This is a minor nightmare I’ve memorized

This is just a nightmare
We are having a nightmare
But nobody cares
Why would anybody care
I’m making up a phone call
Faking it’s an old friend
Big gesticulations
Giving a performance
Hoping that you notice
Hope it makes you jealous
Hope you didn’t miss it
Hope it makes a difference

Describing minor nightmares
Describing minor nightmares
Well nobody cares
Why would anybody care

Oh my god
I think I just realized
The look in your eye when you’re looking at me
It’s all in my mind
It’s all in my dream

Who did you say you were again
It slips my mind
Describing minor nightmares
Describing minor nightmares
Describing minor nightmares
Why would anybody care

Why would anybody care
Track Name: Radio Free
Stop stop stop interrupt—stop interrupting me
Wait wait hold on a minute I haven’t finished talking
Please please won’t you wait
I haven’t said all the things that I need to say
Dark in my eyes, light on my feet
I was just walking then I fell asleep
I suddenly remembered all of the things
That I’d ever pretended to be

I was on static stations
But now I am radio free
I was emphatic to stay put
But now I am actually—

Wait wait I’m not finished talking
Wait wait I wasn’t finished yet
Wait wait I’m not finished talking
Wait wait I still have more to say
Wait wait stop interrupting me
I’m not ready to be radio free

Wait wait I haven’t said goodbye
Look there she’s trying to talk to me
There must be some mistake
I don’t belong here you see
Track Name: It's Nice To Think That It Might Be True
She will miss the summer before the leaves begin to fall
Don’t take for granted anything else about her at all
Take her to the beach
Take her on a trip back to the beach whenever you can
Take her to the beach
Her home is on the ocean
She’ll wither on the land

Everybody’s looking for a cure
Everybody’s looking for a cure for the blues
It’s nice to think you might feel the way I do
Ain’t it nice to think (ain’t it nice to think)
Ain’t it nice to think (ain’t it nice to think)
Ain’t it nice to think that it might be true

Sure why don’t you come on over
One last time for old times sake
Concerns about the consequences never scared you off
Of the mistakes you make
Sure why don’t you come
Sure why don’t you come on over
Of course I miss you sleeping by my side
Why don’t you sleep next to me tonight

Everyone you know is right here
Nobody you’ve ever loved has disappeared
It’s nice to think about that
Whenever you’re lonely or angry or sad
It’s nice to dream about
It’s nice to think about that
Oh yeah
Ain’t it nice to think (ain’t it nice to think)
Ain’t it nice to think (ain’t it nice to think)
Ain’t it nice to think that it might be true

Everyone you know is right here
Nobody who you’ve ever loved can ever disappear
It’s nice to think about that sometimes
Let all of those other thoughts leave your mind
It’s nice to think about that
Oh it’s nice to think like that
Ain’t it nice to dream (ain’t it nice to think)
Ain’t it nice to dream (ain’t it nice to think)
Ain’t it nice to dream
That it’s definitely true
