Track Name: Clean Break
We had a real nice time
From the snow until the sunshine of July
Then we said goodbye

I remember the hot day
you kissed me right before the bus drove you away
I knew you couldn't stay anymore
Not anymore
But you saved me
We had a clean break

I tried to find a new home
Right near the streets you used to roam
I never felt so alone

Another bottle of whiskey gone
Sad sack attack goes on and on
No I don't belong anywhere
Not anywhere
I gotta get out of here
Get me out of here
Get me out of here
Get me out of here
Get me out
Get me out of here

My teeth are stained red with wine
I know you're doing just fine
Do you ever find your mind
Drifting back to me at night anymore?
Not anymore
Not anymore
Track Name: Major Modern
Now we're at it again
I didn't think I could be your friend
But all I see is your glow
When we're together oh no I don't want you to go

Well you're an artist
You belong in a different time
I'll go there with you and help you find
Every piece of your heart that you left behind

But I have no one
No one to tell me what I've done
And I can't go back to how I felt before we met

It's almost been a year
Since you left me high and dry
But I didn't shed a tear
While everyone else found their love online

But you're a beauty
I never met anyone like you
I try not to do everything I can for you
Unless you only want me to
Yeah I'll do anything that you want me to

But I have no one
No one to tell me what I've done
And I can't go back to how I felt before we met
Track Name: Tell Me the Truth
I know you wanted to get away
So let's drive up to the lake for a couple of days
But I'm hungover so you'll have to wait
Cause I can't see straight and my body aches

But please don't be mad
Oh I'm not that bad
I got too drunk and high
It was the fourth of July

We didn't arrive until the end of the day
But I couldn't bear to look at your devastated face
I'll buy you some food to make up for my mistakes
But a gesture don't matter when your heart's turned to grey

You drive the boat
Take us to the island
Show me the ropes
Only to untie them

I know you wanted to get away
So let's drive up to the lake for a couple of days
But I'm hungover so you'll have to wait
Cause my head still hurts and my body aches

Tell me the truth, you
No I don't have faith
Is our love real?
Or are these feelings just a phase?
Track Name: Funny Talk
I don't think that kind of talk is funny
No I ain't one bit seduced by your charm
You better hold your tongue when you're around me
But I guess you don't know my thoughts
And I guess I don't know what you really want

I get up to see you watching TV
With that nice girl you've been cheating on
I can't bear to hear you call her baby, sweetie, honey pie
But I guess I can't say all my thoughts
And I guess I don't know who you really are

You lost your keys again
No I can't help you my friend
You'll have to find another way in

And I guess I don't know your thoughts
And I guess I don't know what you really want

I don't think that kind of talk is funny
No I ain't one bit seduced by your charm
All your stupid dreams of fame will chew you up and spit you out
But don't bet that you'll see me now

And I guess I can't say all my thoughts
And I guess I don't know what you really want
And I guess I don't know all your thoughts
And I guess I don't know who you really are

And I guess you don't know my thoughts
And I guess I don't know who you really are
Track Name: Time to be Regular
You don't have any time be regular
I don't have any time to sleep
You don't have any time to be regular
Time to be regular
Time to be regular with me

Well if it's all in your head
Then tell me how long it takes
I see the lies in your eyes
Take that big grin off your face
Aw c'mon you can tell me
Aw c'mon it's not that hard
No I don't believe it
No I couldn't see it
I beg for anything to keep us apart.

I don't have any time to be regular
I don't have any time for you
I don't have any time to be regular
Time to be regular
Time to be regular

You can never get away
Even if you tried
I want you by my side
It's all right
Just say goodnight to me

awwwwwww yeah
woo

Let me shed some light
Let me get on your case
I'll give it one last try
Before that take me away
Aw cmon my friend
I'm the one you love the most
Here I go back to the hole
Never thought I'd say this but home sweet home

I don't have any time to be regular
I don't have any time for you
I don't have any time to be regular
Time to be regular
Time to be regular
