Track Name: Where I'm Going
i want more time to get where i'm going
pick me up and carry me there
they say i'll know when i get where i'm going
but what if i'm already there

i want more time to get where i'm going
pick me up and carry me there
they say i'll know when i get where i'm going
but what if i'm already there

i want more time to get where i'm going
pick me up and carry me there
they say i'll know when i get where i'm going
but what if i'm already there
but what if i'm already there
Track Name: Good For You
you can say hello to me like you don't give a shit
and you can walk on by me like you don't wanna remember it
and you can act like it ruined you to love me
you can paint it any shade you want to cover me

well, good for you
you'll never slip up and miss me
well, good for you
you finally got happy
without me

you can act superior, it's cooler not to care
and you can move on faster than i would ever dare
so go on wipe me from your memory and still remain in tact
cause when you said goodbye to me you never looked back

oh, good for you
you'll never slip up and miss me
well, good for you
you finally got happy
without me

i don't think it's bad you made me happy
cause now you're gone and look i can still be happy
but you'd never admit i once made you happy
too hard to say, but easy to run away
easy to run away
easy to run away
easy to run away
easy to run away

good for you
you'll never slip up and miss me
well, good for you
you finally got happy
finally
well, good for you
you finally got happy
without me
Track Name: The Drive
this boy's invincible
i know it
this boy walks away without a scratch
to show for it
i'm not trying to relive the past, no
but i see it everyday
this boy is gone
but he won't go away

how long's the drive?
how long's the drive?
how long's the drive until i arrive
at just fine?

this boy's unbreakable
i know it
with nothing to bring him down
he keeps going
and i'm getting better each day
at letting pieces of me take his place
and this boy was never really here
but now he's here to stay

how long's the drive?
how long's the drive?
how long's the drive until i arrive
at just fine?

this boy's uncontainable
he won't sit still
and this boy's unblamable
oh but i sure i will
i've got all this time to kill
so i sure i will

how long's the drive?
how long's the drive?
how long's the drive?
until i arrive
until i arrive
until i, until i arrive
at just fine
Track Name: Two Showers
i took two showers today
cause i forgot about the first one
i've got a lot of shit on my mind
and every right to completely come undone

you made a promise you'd change
when you forgot about your first one
it's scary how easy it comes
to say anything or be anyone

i begged you to stay
when my heart was gunna break
cause it's only my first one
now i'm playing it cool
but i'm all out of moves
and i know it's only my first one
oh god, you're only my first one
Track Name: Don't You (Forget About Me)
won't you come see about me?
i'll be alone, dancing you know it baby
tell me your troubles and doubts
giving me everything inside and out
love's strange so real in the dark
think of the tender things that we were working on
slow change may pull us apart
but when the light gets into you heart, baby

don't you forget about me
don't you forget about me

will you stand above me?
look my way, never love me
rain keeps falling, rain keeps falling
down, down, down

will you recognize me?
call me name, walk on by
rain keeps falling, rain keeps falling
down, down, down,

don't you try and pretend
it's my feeling we'll both win in the end
i won't harm you or touch your defenses
vanity and security

don't you forget about me
don't you forget about me
don't you forget about me

as you walk on by
will you call my name?
as you walk on by
will you call my name?

or will you walk away?
or will you walk away?
or will you walk away?
or will you walk away?

and i say
la lalalala lalalala
la lalalala lalalala
