Track Name: Stories I Tell
** I miss the way you used to wake me up on Saturday mornings
And I think that's why it hurt so much when you left me without warning
And I tried to, but I just can't find that feeling with anyone else
Since you're gone, and I'm alone, you're just another story I tell

Sometimes I like to think about when we went around back in the day
We met at what's her name's party, start of fall 2008
I wish I could hop in a time machine and go back to that week
Cause honestly, that's my favourite story of you and me
Remember that shitty TV we had from like 1967?
It only worked in thunderstorms and went up to channel 11
Or that night the power went out and we threw it off the balcony just for fun? Ok..
Maybe I lied, I think that story has got to be my favourite one

**

Some stories are happy, some stories are sad,
And some stories are in-between
You and I had our fair share of fights and public scenes
And if I could go back I'm sure that I'd probably still fuck it all up
Cause you can write a story any way you want
But you'll never know where it ends up
I only try to think about the happy stories that we wrote together
Cause honestly, since then I haven't written any that were better
And I hope that I can write those happy stories once again, but
Sadly you don't get the full story until the end

**
Track Name: Okay
She says she wanna go round with me
But too bad she'll never call again
My body aches from another night alone
Why the fuck did I get high again?
Face numb, feel like bugs all over me
I wanna hear her voice one more time
6 am and I still can't fucking sleep
My insides rot I might not make it this time

No, I'm not, Okay (x2)

No one ever seem to fucking call me back
I wonder why I think that they will
She says she likes me but she never texts me back
So I drink until I feel ill
Now I'm blowin' and you wanna be with me?
Well I guess you really fucked up this time
As I stare down my empty cup
I think that I might just make it this time

No, I'm not, Okay (x2)
But maybe I will be, will be one day but for now baby no
I'm still, Still not, Okay (Na na na, na na na)

Cause what I wanted from you then is what you need from me now
Telling people that I loved you and I wanted you around
And while that might be true, now the love it comes from you
Bet you wish you had responded to those texts that I sent you
Between the women, and the money, and the drugs, and the fame
I can guarantee you girl, that you're the last thought 'cross my brain
But you played those fucking games and you filled me up with pain
So if you think I want you now than girl, you're, you're fucking insane

No, I'm not, Okay (x2)
But maybe I will be, will be one day but for now baby no
I'm still, Still not, Okay

Cause what I wanted from you then is what you need from me now
Telling people that I loved you and I wanted you around
Track Name: She Helps Me
Do you really wanna know?
Do you really wanna know?

Through my sinuses I lobotomize myself with oxycotton
Can't get no more, I try my dealers, but they're all just sick of spottin'
Bleeding from my nose, I think I've finally hit rock bottom
So I go to close my eyes for good, when suddenly she walks in
She picks me up and feeds me and helps me get cleaned up
She tries to love me but I tell her all I wanna do is fuck
She makes me coffee, gives me money, and kisses me good bye
But I can see how much it hurts her when I look into her eyes

Cause I'm so far away
And she's so far from me
We are both right here
Looking in each others eyes
Standing in the same room
And I know she wants to go
So I tell her ass to leave
But if I had known, I wouldn't of cause
Now, Now, Now,
Now she's never coming back
Naw she's never coming back
No she's never coming back
No, No, No, No

I wish that I could say that things between us only got better
But come on boys and girls, nothing fucking lasts forever
And I know a lot of guys that'll try and blame it on some bitch
But it was my fault for what happened and for what she had to deal with
I'm just glad that she is happy
And that she has found somebody
To spend the rest of her life with
And forget about all of my shit
So I sit back in my loneliness
And get high on my only piff
Cause

I'm so far away
And she's so far from me
We are both right here
Looking in each others eyes
Standing in the same room
And I know she wants to go
So I tell her ass to leave
But if I had known, I wouldn't of cause
Now, Now, Now,
Now she's never coming back
Naw she's never coming back
No she's never coming back
No, No, No, No
But you, you said, you said, you said
That you really wanna know
You said that you really wanna know
You said that you really wanna know
Know, No, Know, No.

Through my sinuses I lobotomize myself with oxycotton
Can't get no more, I try my dealers, but they're all just sick of spottin'
Bleeding from my nose, I think I've finally hit rock bottom
So I go to close my eyes for good
Track Name: Hawaii (ft. Logan Trearty)
In Hawaii
Where the girls are so damn pretty
Down in Hawaii
Get me out of my city
And to Hawaii
We can stay up drinking all night
Down in Hawaii
Cause everything's gunna be alright
Down in Hawaii

I sit on the beach with a beer in my hand
And my feet in the sand, as I
Watch all these women walk by
All day long
And I think to my self
"Which one can I find? Which one will be mine tonight?"
Tonight, tonight

In Hawaii
Where the girls are so damn pretty
Down in Hawaii
Get me out of my city
And to Hawaii
We can stay up drinking all night
Down in Hawaii
Cause everything's gunna be alright
Down in Hawaii

Tropical drinks of rye and wine
Girl you're dynamite
I don't ever wanna leave you, or here
I can stay on this beach for weeks
But both of us know that I gotta go
I gotta get back home and tour
But don't worry babe
Cause we know one day I'll be back

In Hawaii
Where the girls are so damn pretty
Down in Hawaii
Get me out of my city
And to Hawaii
We can stay up drinking all night
Down in Hawaii
Cause everything's gunna be alright
Down in Hawaii

(Logan Trearty)

Pick me up, push me down
Take me in and throw me out
I'm so up and I'm so down
Been walk over all and now
Think it's time for a change
Sick of running in this place
Think it's time to slow the pace
Watch the world go by today
Need a rush, pick me up
Really don't feel it's too much
Done much more than what's enough
And I feel I might have lost my touch
Run away, to better days
To palm trees and ocean waves
If I could only have my way
But my pocket's light on change

In Hawaii
Where the girls are so damn pretty
Down in Hawaii
Get me out of my city
And to Hawaii
We can stay up drinking all night
Down in Hawaii
Cause everything's gunna be alright
Down in Hawaii......
Track Name: I Gotta Move (Secret French Kissing Society Cover)
I live next door to a heroin dealer, get high (x2)
I live next door to a heroin dealer,
Right next door, she's my neighbour
I live next door to a heroin dealer, get high

Everyday I pass by her flat to get high (x2)
Everyday I pass by her flat
Shoot some dope and smoke some crack
I live next door to a heroin dealer, get high

It's just so sweet for me she lives next door (x2)
It's just so sweet she lives next door
It's such a breeze for me to score
I live next door to a heroin dealer, get high

She hooks me up on days when I am broke (x2)
She hooks me up when I am broke
She knows my habit's not a joke
I live next door to a heroin dealer, get high

Even when she's dry it's not so grim (x2)
When she's dry it's not so grim
She's got Loracets and Vicodins
I live next door to a heroin dealer, get high

I hope that she will always live so close (x2)
I hope she'll always live so close
She won't go to jail or overdose
I live next door to a heroin dealer, get high
