Track Name: Brown Eyes
The city lights were all around
on our walk home from a night drunk downtown
the concert was good and the day had gone perfectly
you had this look in your brown eyes as you talk about everything

but soon enough you started to cry
and we both knew your reasons why
I wanted to break through the door, help you forget everything
pick you up off the floor help you mend all your dreams

but I was still lost at sea
and you were still just as lost as me
so as we opened the door, my mind ran on repeat
"what's a beauty like her doing with a wretch like me"

Then I saw my reflection in the mirror
and didn't recognize myself
so after everything we've been through
maybe we both need someone else
I swear to give you all I have left
as long as you promise me too
Don't have much I really want now
but one thing that matters to me is you

"Don't Let Me Down" (as written by The Beatles)
Track Name: The Joke's On Me
I'm giving up on getting my hopes up
Cause all they've ever really done is bring me down
You always seemed to be so different
Now I miss the days I wanted no one else around
Cause now I sit alone beset by the people I know
and I'm tired of faking everything
like this peace of mind that I can't seem to find
or a sense of apathy

I want to change my ways and live up to the name
of the man that I should be
Maybe then you'd love me

I used to think that I would be happy
I made a point to follow all of my dreams
Now I look at where it's got me
I kill myself over some distant memory
Of a girl that I can only dream to make mine
but my dreams are just parodies
of the life that I have always hoped to find
so I guess the jokes on me.

I want to change my ways and live up to the name
of the man that I should be
Maybe then you'd love me
Track Name: A Million Little Songs
I could write you a million little songs about how I'm better off without you
or I could write you a million little lies about how you're better off without me
but I'd rather try being kind and sympathetic
some people just cannot love, no, they just don't get it
that's not your fault
that's not my fault

Still I could write you about the million trillion times you broke my heart
Instead I'll write you about the million reasons why I still think you're the greatest
But this bitter confusion is not a reason to lash out
it's more of a worthless preclusion, an excuse to not give my heart out
and that's not what you deserve
it's so much less than you deserve

Cause I have a heart that could warm over millions
yes I have a heart that could break your shallow indifference
and I have a heart that could love you like you've never known
if you just had the heart to listen
yes, we could all have a love we've never known if we just had the hearts to listen
Track Name: Untitled #3
There are a lot of things I said I didn't want to
That doesn't change the fact that they were true
I'm not sorry for the songs I wrote, the lame insults, the dirty jokes
I'm glad to hear you're doing better though

As for me, I'm still the same
Singing myself raw, drinking away the pain
And as simple as it would be to give up and move on
I'm still just sitting here writing songs.
