Track Name: TOOMUCHOFAGOODTHING
I got a baby and she's everything I've ever wanted
She's down for anything
She lets me put her in my pocket
It's TOOMUCHOFAGOODTHING
So I don't even want it
Never thought that this was possible
TOOMUCHOFAGOODTHING

I can see you flaunting it
But I don't want no part of it
We're on our way to partyin
you want me in your pocket

And all the wild world
Seems to open its doors
But I cant take anymore
No I can't take anymore
Cus it's TOOMUCHOFAGOODTHING
And I don't even want it
You can leave it at home
Or you can keep it in your pocket
It's TOOMUCHOFAGOODTHING
And I don't even want it
Never thought that this was possible
TOOMUCHOFAGOODTHING

You don't believe me you can look it up online
He said their body's all erotic
Daddy's darling never wanted you at all.
And you wanted it!
This is what you wanted hey?
The thought of it went viral hey
So fuck you too phone!

Yeah no one's perfect,
But I wouldn't want it anyways
I don't want it anyways
Cus I don't wanna overdose
TOOMUCHOGAGOODTHING
And I don't even want it
Never thought that it was possible
TOOMUCHOFAGOODTHING

I wanted more than
More than I could hold...
Track Name: Africa
Set me sailing
I'd go with you
Out on the blue

Some say it's dangerous
I'd go with you
Meet me on the shores
Of Africa

So long everyone
I love you all
Back in the fall

If you need me
You'll have to hunt
I'm getting lost
In Africa
Track Name: Crash-Talk (Now with even more pans!!)
Just tryin to have a conversation
It's like I'm living under water
And every time I try to take a breath
I'm afraid that I'm about to breathe in
And I don't wanna drown
Don't want it to be the end.

Why is everybody holding on?
Five in the morning when you called
Child I'm a mess but I'm sure it's best
For us to move along.

We better have a conversation
Or I might wind up in the basement
Buried under the boxes of forgotten toys
Just another thing that used to bring you joy
And you can leave off the lights
Everything is nice and quiet and
I don't mind the dark sometimes
And you can count, count,
Count on me
Whatever it takes for you to fall asleep
And I'll be waiting for you on the other side

Why is everybody holding on?
Five in the morning when you called
Child I'm a mess but I'm sure it's best
For us to move along.

Wish we could have a conversation
But I'm all on my own
And there ain't nothing that can stop me now
I wanna go home
Three in the morning and I'm coming home
And my heart's in the water
Love's in the water
It's cold in the water
But I'm still warm
And I don't have a car
So I rented a car
Four in the morning in my borrowed car
And I crash into the water
Crash into the wall
Drive downtown so I can crash into the general store.

Why is everybody holding on?
Five in the morning when you called
Child I'm a mess but I'm sure it's best
For us to move along.
Track Name: Crybaby
Hey Charm
Yea you know I love you
But it's not that bad
No it's not a big deal

What's all this fuzzin up my stereo
Trying to dial you in while I'm
Goin on a journey

All my friends are sick of me being pitiful
They say hey man time to get over it
They wanna take me out on the town
But I don't wanna go
I'd rather lose it on my own

I don't need saving
I don't mean to be such a
Cry baby
Everything is working out

Hey lovely
Puffin up a cigarrete
You're holding so tight
And it wish it was me
But I'm insane over
Memories of somebody else
They keep draggin me down
Yea I'm draggin her around with me

And I don't need a savior
Don't need savior
Don't need a stranger to lay down with me
Don't wanna lay here
We're all in danger of
Waiting on the next best thing

I don't need saving
I don't mean to be such a
Cry baby
Everything is working out
Watch you coming out of a crowd
I'm walking through your cloud
Breathing you in second hand

Once more I wanna get ahold of it
Got my coat on and I'm ready to go
Let's get wild in your shopping cart
You got your high-priced items
And my discount heart
Break it or buy it or leave me on the shelf
You can put me on a layaway
Or buy me straight out

I don't need saving
I don't mean to be such a
Cry baby
Everything is working out
Track Name: Roll With Me
Think I gotta get as far away from here as I can get
I'll pick up whatever I need along the way
I don't need to pack a bag
Cus I don't have anything left
Women and worldly things no longer slowin me down.

I don't mean to cause anyone any kind of trouble
Trouble seems to follow me wherever I go
When I met her eyes it got out of control
Why you gotta break that bottle?
Throw me up against the wall
I had no idea she was with you when I said to her

Baby you could roll with me
But I don't wanna slow it down
A quiet life
Well it's not for me

Think I gotta get to Cuba
Never been outside the states
And when I get there I'm gonna join a band
I don't need to speak your language
I can tell what you want
Woman you're wild but you're only gonna slow me down.

Maybe you could roll with me
But I don't wanna slow it down
A quiet life
Well it's not for me

Never gonna change direction
No matter where I find myself
Never gonna break
Never gonna break away
Living in West Columbus
Long enough to catch a plane
Next stop Michigan to start it over all again.

Maybe you could roll with me
But I don't wanna slow it down
A quiet life
It's not what we need.
Track Name: Deep Waters
What would it be like
To see you again?
What would it be like
To breathe you in?
Oh how I would like to love you
All over again
But I couldn't bear to
Lose you all over again.

Since you've moved along
I'm feeling stronger
I will move on
Into deep waters
The storm is behind
The moon is much brighter
She's gonna guide us
She's shining inside us

Wouldn't it be nice to crawl into our bed??
None of these thoughts spun across our lovin heads
I'm feeling twice about her
So I'm gonna write about her
Get it right Is it love
Or is it only a doorway?
Should I open up the door??
What's it like on your side???

Since you've moved along
I'm feeling stronger
I will move on
Into deep waters
The storm is behind
The moon is much brighter
She's gonna guide us
She's shining inside us

How many lives could be out there???
What are the odds that you're after?
Wouldn't it be nice to move a little faster?
Every day i'll be less of a disaster.

Since you've moved along.
Track Name: Magic Door
Magic Door

This door is magic
Takes me wherever I want
Now that you're not around
Door's unhinged won't work for us.

So easy casting it
Open the door and imagine
It could take you anywhere
Anywhere that she went
Cross over the atlantic...

I wanna be leaving you letters
I wanna believe but I don't want us
Letting this be
a disaster
All I want are answers
Tell me what you're after.

Oh I'd go wherever you wanna go
But your door won't open for me anymore
All these days you've spent away
If I could I would teleport

We're all acting like animals.
I wanna believe so I scratch at your door.
And if you want to let us in
We could be your medicine
Let's be more than venison.
We'll keep scratching til we're in
One by one keep traveling
Track Name: My Alternate Reality
I had a dream
And you were in it
We were working on our house
And in this dream
Things were much different
We were loving on our farm

I'd like to think that this could be
My alternate reality
And if it don't work out
We can sell the farm
Oh baby I'm not insane
I had a dream
That you were dating
And his name was Robert Ross
And in this dream I went up to him
And I kicked his Raggedy Ass
I'd like to think that this could be
My alternate reality
And if it don't work out
Wee can burn it down
Oh baby I'm not insane
I'm not insane

SOLO!

I'd like to think that this could be
My alternate reality
And if it don't work out
Wee can burn it down
Oh baby I'm not insane
I'm not insane
I'm not insane
I'm not insane
I'm not insane

I had a dream
And you were in it
We were working on our home
It was a boat
And we were sailing
We made out all over the world
And I would like for this to be
My alternate reality
And if it don't work out
We won't settle down
Oh baby Oh baby I'm not insane

Face in the water
Lookin up at the storm
When's it gonna blow on by?

We're all in the water
We're all in the storm
When's it gonna roll along?

Facing the water
Facing the storm
When's it gonna blow on by

We're all in the water
We're all in the soil
Everybody rolls along.
Track Name: Winter Friend
Darling if you want me
I'll be right here
Writing all my thoughts
Darling if you love me
Then come on back home
I'll be waiting.

Long walks and incredible sights
Fill up my time
Here I stand with my maps in hand
Ready to take flight
And I know that it's not so bad
I got my friends
I got my guitar
And I got my dog
And I got you - you're in all my songs

Darling if you want me
I'll be right here
Writing all my thoughts
Darling if you love me
Then come on back home
I'll be waiting.
Track Name: Gone Mad
You're everywhere
Still find golden hair on my clothes
I miss your voice
Why don't you ever call?

And on Saturdays
It's no holiday
I'm asking you
Why don't we celebrate anyways

We could be dancing
We could be laughing in the dark

I'm not crazy
I've gone mad
I'm not crazy
I'm just losing it
I'm just losing it

You're all I want
All in time you say
But I'm drowing out
Or am I'm drying out?

Oh some summer day
I'll come run away
But for now
I'll have to stay

You could wrap me up
In your silky love
I'd like to know
What it's like behind your spider's eyes.

I'm not crazy
I've gone mad
I'm not crazy
I'm just losing it
I'm just losing it

Looking out for us Love
Watching out the window
Waiting for the sun.
You're all I want
You're all I want
You're all I want
You're all I want
Oh some summer day
I'll come run away
You could wrap me up
In your silky love

I'm not crazy
I've gone mad
I'm not crazy
I'm just losing it
I'm just losing it
Track Name: MISScommunicate
Look another lunatic in love
He's looking up at the moon
Nothing seems to work for him right now
He doesn't know what to do.

All that he's been missing is a mystery
A mist in his head
Fogging up the fire in his heart
He tries to rekindle it

I've been driving
Dialing darling
And I'm trying to understand you
I'm trying to understand you
I'm trying to understand
What if you're only miscommunicating?
Try to understand me
I'm talking through the static
I know it's all erratic
What if I'm only miscommunicating?

Signal in the sky is interrupted by a flash of light
Nobody is flying and I know it's not a satellite
Trying to send a message any way that I can into the night
What are we relying on I wanna use another device
Is it right? Should I write?

I've been driving
Dialing darling
And I'm trying to understand you
I'm trying to understand you
I'm trying to understand
What if you're only miscommunicating?
Try to understand me
I'm talking through the static
I know it's all erratic
What if I'm only miscommunicating?
Track Name: Trump
If you want me darling
Well there's never telling where I'll be
In the corner rolling with my cards
Every one of them pointing out
The inevitibility
They only show me what I need to see.

I've been riding on my wave
I don't need much anyways

Have you seen the new WonderLove?
I heard it comes in many forms.
It's out in color now
We could both sneak in
And if you find that you're not liking how the story ends
Well it doesn't have to be the end.

I've been riding on my wave
Won't you join me some day?

Come and find me
Out about
We both could run away
I would love to love someday
We'll learn in time anyways.

If you want me darling
Well there's never telling where I'll be
In the Desert tossing all my cards
Every one of them pointing at
My Alternate Reality
You were all the TRUMP I'll ever need.

I've been riding on my wave
Won't you join me someday?

Come and find me
Out about
We both could run away
I would love to love someone
I might in time anyways.
