Track Name: You Promised
you've got a jealous heart
don't wanna be a part
of anything you didn't have from the start
'cause you say so

and we are a broken toy
unfit for a girl or boy
refusing anything that could bring us joy
if you say so

and you and I are working through something
yeah you and I are working through something here

you promised me
that things would change
but you and I ever more the same
but I can learn
to stand without you now
but I still fall down sometimes

I'm learning to hold my tongue
don't wanna be outdone
you see it in the faces of everyone
I suppose so

adrift on a silent haze
I've been underneath for days
and you can feel if coming from miles away
with your eyes closed

and you and I are working through something
yeah you and I are working through something here

you promised me
that things would change
but you and I ever more the same
but I can learn
to stand without you now
but I still fall down sometimes

You've got a jealous heart...
Yeah, you've got a jealous heart...

you promised me
that things would change
but you and I ever more the same
but I can learn
to stand without you now
but I still fall down sometimes
Track Name: Whatever Happened To You
'75, twin cinema plaza
painting lines on the sidewalks
in the summer
as I recall
your pockets were always empty
always bumming rides
to the old arcade downtown

sometimes I wonder
whatever happened to you?
sometimes I wonder
if you're still out there somewhere
yeah I wonder
whatever happened to you?
whatever happened to you?

summertime sky
blazing down on the highway
a mile from the curve
where your friend took a turn too fast
at seventeen years
I can leave you behind now
and one day we'll all look back on this and laugh

sometimes I wonder
whatever happened to you?
sometimes I wonder
if you're still out there somewhere
yeah I wonder
whatever happened to you?
whatever happened to you?

and you were waiting for me
impatiently
you couldn't wait for me to get here
how did we get here?

sometimes I wonder
whatever happened to you?
sometimes I wonder
if you were ever really me?
and I wonder
whatever happened to you?
whatever happened to you?
Track Name: Gold Star (Feel Like A Ghost)
so you've come to set me straight
an irresistible disaster
so hold me up against the others
maybe we'll both find what we're after

'cause it doesn't take much
it hardly takes anything
to make me feel like a ghost these days
invisible ethereal
so place a gold star by my name

so say you want to keep me safe
'cause I want to be someone worth saving
but I'm always leaving one door open
for whenever you get tired of waiting

'cause it doesn't take much
it hardly takes anything
to make me feel like a ghost these days
invisible ethereal
so place a gold star by my name

cut away these ropes and skin
that tie us down and hem us in
did you think I'd fall for that again?

and all the things I've ever wanted
were things that needed to be given
another house been doused for burning
just blame it on another bad decision

'cause it doesn't take much
it hardly takes anything
to make me feel like a ghost these days
invisible ethereal
so place your gold star by my name
Track Name: We Had A Good Thing
the sun sinks slips behind the clouds
and I’ve been driving around for hours
in this city where we met so long ago
and the streets here hum like wires
and the last 12 years unwind
I am haunting the old places we would go

and I can’t invent
the words to say how much it meant
just to be there beside you breathing in
each moment that we spent

and we had a good thing
you told me so
but what did I know?
what did I know?
yeah we had a good thing
but we let it go
so what do I know?
what do I know?

the waves crash against the pier
and I’ve been gone all these years
a familiar skyline holds no sense of mystery
and you’re fading in and out
like a signal, like the radio
the shadows of the long-forgotten ghosts
we used to be

and I never had
a reason I should feel so sad
you can have every street and sidewalk
if you wanted them so bad

and we had a good thing
you told me so
but what did I know?
what did I know?
yeah we had a good thing
but we let it go
so what do I know?
what do I know?

and I guess this city’s big enough without you
and I guess this city’s big enough without you

and we had a good thing
you told me so
but what did I know?
what did I know?
yeah we had a good thing
but we let it go
so what do I know?
what do I know?
Track Name: Note To Self
to whom it may concern
it's time to call your bluff
the hardest thing to learn
is you don't want it bad enough
so lay the pen to rest
and commit to saner things
and leave those strings to rust
another busted set of wings

and you fall behind
waiting for some planets to align
so what are you gonna do with your time?
yeah what are you gonna do with your time?

daylight slips away
and you feel it creeping in
the faces and the names
of every place you've never been
and conscience is a curse
which you've never understood
but it won't add up to much
and always nothing good

but there's no crime
deciding where you want to draw that line
so what are you gonna do with your time?
tell me what are you gonna do with your time?

cutting corners
to find a shortcut to some truth
part the curtain
put this daylight to some use

and I think it's fine
deciding you don't want to change your mind
so what are you gonna do with your time?
yeah what are you gonna do with your time?
tell me what are you gonna do with your time?
