Track Name: California
I picked my head up off the pillow
Just to drop it on the floor
I barely rolled it out the door
Before I heard this little voice
Saying "hey you made the choice
to go make something of your day
And you may trip but that's okay
See all those bruises always fade"

I drive my car along the road
And join the others in a line
We sit there stagnant petrifying
Fossilizing all the while
I turn my music up
And thank my lucky stars this car's got gas
I know we're moving inch by inch
I know the waiting time won't last
The waiting time won't last and soon we're moving fast

I'm not doing good, but I've been doing better
And that's good enough for now, that's good enough for now
I'm not doing good, but it won't be bad forever
I'll be good for now, I'll be good for now

I sing my heart out in my room
And when I'm done I sit and wait
I think I'll hate the way this sounds
Til I can sing it on a stage

I've sung on stages where the people there don't care I'm in the room
Think I prefer the way my furniture just listens to my tune
And pillows are good for talking to

I'm not doing good, but I've been doing better
And that's good enough for now, that's good enough for now
I'm not doing good, but it won't be bad forever
I'll be good for now, I'll be good for now

I crossed my heart and hoped to die that I could leave my mom and dad
Just make it out somehow of hollow towns that keep holding me back
I trust myself I'm doing well and I can make it on my own
Oh California, can you cosign all that bullshit I just told

I'm not doing good, but I've been doing better
And that's good enough for now, that's good enough for now
I'm not doing good, but it won't be bad forever
I'll be good for now, I'll be good for now
Track Name: City Lights
We were growing up
We were going out
Diamonds in our eyes had cut us out

It was 4:00
But we hadn't slept
Running up the block with stars above our heads

And I felt so dizzy
They called me light
They gave me cash and called a cab and called the night
I watched the city
Blink by like lights
I'd rather crash than ever make it home tonight

My head ignites with all those city lights
And I'll forget that I'm back in my bed before they get too bright

We were moving fast
We were flying far
As we drive around in circles in that car

I was one of them
But who were we?
Broken bits of glass out on the street

And I felt so crazy
We called it free
And that's what gave me every reason to believe
I watched the city
And she watched me
I closed my eyes and prayed to God I was a somebody

My head ignites with all those city lights
And I'll forget that I'm back in my bed before they get too bright

There's a pounding in the sidewalk
There's an aching in the cracks
And from my tiny town the sky's so dark
Now I'm dying to get back

They called me dizzy
They called me light
They gave me cash and called a cab and called the night
I watched the city
Blink by like lights
I'd rather crash than ever make it home tonight

My head ignites with all those city lights
And I'll forget that I'm back in my bed before they get too bright

We were growing up
We were going out
Diamonds in our eyes had cut us out
Track Name: Galapagos
I am through talking to you
We always have these kinds of fights
The ones where you just say I'm right so you
You can get to bed
Instead of talking this thing through
You'd rather do what's good for you

I am done with this imitation of
The love I swear we used to have
The sugar made us both go bad and now
I'd rather be alone
Than stuck inside this spinning cycle with a guy I barely know

Used to be adored
You don't love me like you loved me anymore
Lying in your bed I'm getting bored
You don't love me like you loved me anymore
You don't love me like you did before

I have days where I miss our old ways
I used to think our seams could mend
But now I've seen the bitter end, that's when
You're left by yourself
And I'm left back where I once started playing games with someone else

Used to be adored
You don't love me like you loved me anymore
Lying in your bed I'm getting bored
You don't love me like you loved me anymore
You don't love me like you did before

I've been held down for too long
The strings I used to strum have tied me up and I'm too strong
Did we ever even get along
Don't get me wrong

I know
Used to be adored
You don't love me like you loved me anymore
Lying in your bed I'm getting bored
You don't love me like you loved me anymore
You don't love me like you did before
Track Name: Selfish
I hope you feel nice
And you're never sad
And I hope when I write
It won't come out bad
Cuz I know clumsy
And a little unwell
And I know I love you
Still

My heart's in a letter
I can't seem to send
And with time I get better
But I can never begin
My Mom says I'm clever
And I'm good with a pen
Cuz I'm ink on the inside
And paper skin

And oh I'm selfish
I can't help it
I told you always
And I almost meant it
(x3)

Oh I'm selfish I can't help it
I'm a hurricane
I hope you like it when it rains

My hand's at a standstill
When I wanted to wave
Cuz when I see you there, well
I know I'll never behave
My friends call me dead end
Cuz I stay in one place
And from the look of your girlfriend
You're never going my way

Remember the time I
Made you laugh til you cried?
I think that's the perfect way
To describe you and I
I know I get angry
And treat you so mean
I'd love if you just forgave me
For being me

And oh I'm selfish
I can't help it
I told you always
And I almost meant it
(x3)

Oh I'm selfish I can't help it
I'm a hurricane
I heard you like a little rain

I knew you were different
When I realized you're real
And I wish I had seen it
When you showed me how to feel
I'm writing this letter
Cuz my tongue is still tied
My mom says I'm clever
I hope you think that she's right

And oh I'm selfish
I can't help it
I told you always
And I almost meant it

Oh I'm selfish I can't help it
I'm a hurricane, a hurricane

Oh I'm selfish and I can't help it
I told you always and I'm scared I meant it
Oh I'm selfish, I can't help it
I know

Oh I'm selfish I can't help it (x3)
Oh I'm selfish
