Track Name: Not You
You can’t tell me nothing I don’t wanna hear
And I don’t think I’ll spend another year
Listening to you, what you put me through

They say Catholic girls start much too late
But Annabella Lwin
Just couldn’t wait to set me straight

I’m 17 and 22
Broke, desperate, nothing to do
Going to all the wrong places
With unfamiliar faces
They’re not you

I’ll be the first one there, the last one to leave
Anything to fix my poor old self-esteem
It’s a pipe dream

You say the past is history, let’s start something new
Don’t change the fact that my heart is black and blue
You ran me through
Track Name: J.P.W.
I'm not gonna say your name
I 'm not gonna write a song for you
Cuz I don't care about you that much
Track Name: Lost w/You
I’m sick of lost causes and lost wages
Lost dogs and Las Vegas, too
I just want to be lost w/you

I’m sick of empty promises and broken dreams
Resolutions and Panther schemes that aren’t true
I just want to be lost w/you

It’s like Halloween on Moreland Avenue
I’m lost in the zombie zoo
But I don’ t need a map and I don’t need a clue
I just want to be lost w/you

I’m sick of hypocrite fake journalists
Who benefit when the country’s split in two
I just want to be lost w/you

I’m sick of dogmatism and zealotry
Simple-minded certainty from fools
I just want to be lost w/you
Track Name: Sometimes...
I’ve been looking for a new home
I’ve been thinking about the future
Sometimes I feel living in the moment is wasting my time

Maybe I’ll quit drinking
Try to find something steady
Sometimes I feel if I don’t put some roots down I’m gonna blow away

A long time ago, out in Irvine, you told me you’d be mine
That’s a great deal for me, but sometimes I struggle to see
What’s in it for you

We could move down to New Orleans
Try to make a little baby
Sometimes I feel I have all the answers, but I don’t know the questions

Is it irony or hypocrisy?
To write a song about how much I love you near me
Then inevitably take it far away from you and play it for a bunch of strangers
