Track Name: In the Mood You're In
I'm really fortunate to still be standing here after all the shit I put you through.
And I don't understand what's happening; I thought that it was done.
And I can't imagine you have anything left to say.

But a word or two tumble from your lips,
dropping at my feet.
And I don't have the time to reply.
You turn and walk away and there's nothing left to say.

It's over quickly, fashioned from my fear. Easily the easiest thing I've ever had to do.
And that's all there is - all you want to hear.
So I'll just grab your hand and take you away.

But your hesitation gives you away.
Stopping at my feet.
And I don't have the strength to try.
You turn and walk away and there's nothing left to say.

dropping at my feet.
And I don't have the time to reply.

Track Name: Heartless
No you weren't ever heartless,
but you could aways find a way to change your mind,
and if my fumbling is artless,
I only use it as a way to pass the time,
and always leaving in cold air,
and never having a place to lay your head,
and only after did you care,
only after we had found ourselves in bed.

But you have to admit that it's easy to please me.
And you, you have to try this again.

Because I wasn't a lover,
and you were only someone that I had to touch,
and if I wasn't your brother,
then you probably told me far too much,
and if I leave in the morning,
while under covers you are always fast asleep,
I'll stop before it gets boring,
and you won't feel like there are secrets you should keep.

But you, maybe you'll try to keep trying.
And you will tell me a lie, to keep me lying.

The only time I tried to get away, I found the door, but the handle wouldn't turn, and I was in a dream, and you said:
"If this is how you act when someone says I love you, then I love you, but I won't say it again."
And I said:
"Don't move too fast, don't move too slow, I'm never sure with you. But I'm sure that I'm wrong, and you're right, and that must be worth something."
"Can we try this again? Can we try this again? Can we try this again tonight?"
Track Name: Clean Up This Mess
I saw it all over your face before you were even through the door.
I know you tried to erase everything that went before.
I won't ask you for a week, and you won't answer for a year.
And when I try to be weak, that's when you try to speak.

And tell me everything you see.
And everything you know.
And everything you wish you could forget.
Why don't you try not to speak?

I couldn't answer all your questions.
I didn't even want to try.
And when you start in again you're always leaving me behind.

redacted:
(Is that how you meant it?
Was that supposed to hurt?
You can't possibly think I'll be quiet.)
Track Name: Straggling
I could have taken you to the movies.
I should have taken you to a show.
But you weren't ready. No you weren't ready for that. For me.

Did you forget your coat?
I will carry your bag - did you bring your friend along?
I want you to myself, and he's not welcome.
Take me home,
to your home.

I could have told that I'm honest.
And my friends, they could tell you that it's true.
That I haven't been lucky.
No I haven't found anything before you. And now there's you.

Did you rehearse this moment?
Standing here in the cold.
I didn't know you were from Cleveland - I've never been.
Take me home,
to your home.
