Track Name: Chariot
"Thanks," she said
There's a goddess chained up inside my head
Stars and fate
She's in love with the ocean's waves
I'm your friend
I'll hold on 'til the world's end
I want you in my bed
I want you
I'll do anything
I want you tonight
Yes, I want you tonight
Yes, I want you
Track Name: Leave Me Behind
Do you want to leave me behind?
Is that what you want to do?
Then first make it clear
I'm not the only one who ever loved you
Take a moment before you make your choice
Hear me singing inside your heart
Does it really have to end
Before we've even had a chance to start?
So worried all the time
About each other's drinking
Your friends keep you out all night
While I'm back at the house alone
Today I lent some money
To our neighbor down the hall
I just wanted to help him out
You hate him
And now you want to leave me behind
I suspected that's how you felt
Its your life, don't let me slow you down
Yeah, I'll just go somewhere else
Track Name: Staring at the Wall
Sent my best to you
"Don't be a stranger," you said
I haven't forgotten those years
Nothing could ever take them away
Am I ready to tell you
How I feel about our distance?
I haven't forgotten those years
Now you're playing without me today
And I'm staring at the wall
I'm staring at the wall
I'm staring at the wall
I can hear your voices across town
Where I'm laying in bed
Seems like no one understands
Or appreciates what I gave
I still love you
But I'm sad how things worked out in the end
The floor was a better place to play
And now you're kicking me off the stage
And I'm staring at the wall
I'm staring at the wall
I'm staring at the wall
Sent my best to you
"Don't be a stranger," you said
Track Name: Lost in Rock'n'roll
You woke me up
And said, "Let's take a drive,
Get in the car."
Remember when you showed me that guitar
And taught me how to play
Peggy Sue and Ritchie
I got lost in rock'n'roll
Summertime blues at nine years old
Visits to Diamond Peak
And Thielsen
Hiking through Sisters
It felt good to breathe the air
The magic of just being out there with you, Dad
Tell me, am I a good son?
Am I someone that you're proud of
What I've become
Seems as if I've turned away, let you down
I've gone astray
But the truth is I'm lost without you
You couldn't bear to watch me
Drown in heartbreak
Track Name: Without Her
Without her
I can't feel anything
But pain that won't heal
Yesterday, I listened to the same old song
On repeat over and over again all night long
Without her
I say bad things
To hurt you, makes you think I've gone insane
Sorry, I can't hang out tonight and see your band
Though you're my friend I know you won't understand
Without her
I'm no good
In the past, I did the best I could
But now I talk in circles 'til you're tired of me
I've given up my self-respect to make you see
Without her
I want to die
A thousand times, this evening I think I'll try
And fill my emptiness with pills and wine
It hurts so much, don't worry
I'll be fine
Track Name: Please Stay
I love you so much
You know this
I need you here with me
I don't want you to go away
Please stay
For days I have felt like I'm losing my mind
As I crawl back to your good grace
Are you the one that I should blame?
Please stay
Track Name: Lapse of Reflex
Laugh again
For an instant
It will quickly fade into restless turning
On the couch I have made for myself
Plan ahead
Only a lapse of reflex
In your mind could break you down
Once and for all
I'll stop it if you want me to
I'll still be dreaming of your kiss
That never was though
I can send you things that remind me of you
But I won't anymore
If you just don't want to watch
So laugh again
For an instant
It will quickly fade into restless turning
On the couch I have made for myself
Plan ahead
Only a lapse of reflex
In your mind could break you down
Once and for all
