Track Name: On Fire
The kids say it isn't worth it.
That's why they dance all night.

And we're all scared when the day comes,
that we didn't do it right.

When no one's watching, we put our feet up,
when we should be running it down.

But maybe tonight. Maybe tonight. Maybe tonight. We'll set it alight.

I know you tried your hardest,
but a half-day's never enough.

Only the good die young,
and everyone else has it tough.

And if you want some sympathy,
then you better stop fucking around.

And maybe tonight. Maybe tonight. Maybe tonight. I'll help you set it alight. And everything will be all right.
Track Name: Custer's Last Stand
All the times you said to me:
"I don't like where this is going."
I couldn't tell anyone but you could feel it in the air.

Close the door behind you.
Don't let the cold air out.

Aching hearts know what they need.
Salted landscapes are decisions.
And every word you hear me breathe, it was chosen for a reason.

Open up the air vents.
The gas is seeping in.
We're here for the duration.
So call your next of kin.
Track Name: For Tonight
You shouldn't take it so seriously.
We're only here for tonight.
But you've chosen your corner,
and your look is a warning.
It's the perfect time to start a fight.

Once you asked me to dance.
It was the start of the longest night of my life.
But now you dance in the corner,
saying this moment is all we need.
We're only here for tonight.

So let's not waste our time.

And you say:
"You shouldn't take it so seriously.
You shouldn't take it so seriously.
We're only here for tonight."
So come on out of the corner,
you know I didn't mean a thing.
We're only here for tonight.
We're only here for tonight.

So let's not waste our time.
So let's not waste our time.
We shouldn't waste our time.
You shouldn't waste my time.

You shouldn't take it so seriously
We're only here for tonight
Track Name: Lake Michigan
Moving into your apartment, with a clear view of the lake, late in the year.
We'd take a walk to clear our heads and get something to eat. It didn't bother me.
As the frost rolled in we held cups of coffee and stayed in bed all day.
And as the trash piled up we said "this is perfect," and then we drifted away.

The start of April woke us up, atrophied muscles flexing, cold starting the car.
You'd drive me to work with the windows down, your hair blowing everywhere. A kiss at the curb.
And evenings spent in growing gloom didn't seem so bad to me.
We'd light a fire and lock the door and play records all night, and then we opened our eyes, and then we drifted away.

And then the summer surprised us both - the heat rising off the street, the sun in our eyes.
And then the sweat obscured the sight of every awful surprise.
And the nighttime can't come fast enough for what you wanted to ask, what you said in the car.
And as we pulled up to a stoplight I thought about how lucky we are.

It's not my job to reassure you you're not wasting your time.
You might be wasting your time.
It's not my job to reassure you you're not wasting your time.
You might be wasting your time.
It's not my job to reassure you you're not wasting your time.
You're probably wasting your time.
Track Name: Sister
I imagine if you were here, you'd have a few things to say about how I live my life,
and we'd figure out how to split our holidays.

I imagine if you were here, the times we spent together would be the times we both remembered, and our kids…

Would play in the sunshine but also in the rain, the way I once did with you.

I imagine if you were here, the weight of our history would outweigh the things I didn't like about you. Or you about me.

I imagine if you were here, we'd take a long vacation and wonder what it would be like if we were alone. And our kids…

Would play in the sunshine but also in the rain, the way I once did with you. It's true.

But of course you're not here, and I'm used to that.
And it's been a long year, but I'm used to that.
And I wish you were near, and I'm used to that.
But I hope you can hear me tonight.
Track Name: The Drive to Phoenix
"This is where we get off," you said.
"I don't want to drive all night."
And I didn't have to look at the map to see you were wrong.

But maybe a night in Phoenix will tell us what we need.
It couldn't be worse than today.

It was quiet enough to hear the wind as it blew slowly through your hair.
We put the top down in Dallas, when things were looking brighter.

I pulled into an empty spot, under the bright halogen lights.
And turned to you with no idea of what I should say.

But then you took my breath away,
the way you always do.
And the stifling heat between us lit the way.

That one night in Phoenix.
