Track Name: How Does It Feel to Be in Love?
Lyrics:

They want in, they want out
They get in, that’s all right
They want out, they want in
They get out, that’s all right

They feel good, they feel bad
They get down, that’s all right
get confused, get abused
and repeat, it’s all right

How does it feel to be in love now?

Open eyes, Open veins
Fill your heart with the pain
They fall out, they fall in
It repeats, it’s the same

They get up, They fall out
They fall in
They get up, they fall down
And you fall
And you fall
And you fall

How does it feel to be in love now?

You’re afraid that you’ll feel the spark
It’s the fire that burns your heart
When your world’s been crashing down
Hey I’m not gonna let you drown
(tonight…)

And you must be now what I wanted
And you must be now what I needed

How does it feel to be in love now?

You’ve been lost and they hurt you bad
And you just wanna hurt them back
But you can’t face the world alone
Aren’t you glad that you found a home?
Track Name: Asking Your Mom for Money
Lyrics:

You say you wanna go
So when you gonna leave?
Hey where you wanna go-oh?

Stateside, Nationwide
Let’s commit some crimes
We’ll egg the houses on Suburban Drive
Shove firecrackers in the cat’s behind
and smashing pumpkins late at night

Asking your mom for money
Asking the bees for honey
Asking your mom for money (it’s like)
Asking the bees for honey

You wanna leave from this town
You wanna go before you have a breakdown
You wanna see something true
But you can’t see it when you’re looking right through

Asking your mom for money
Asking the bees for honey
Asking your mom for money (it’s like)
Asking the bees for honey

We ride around with the windows down
We ride around with the windows down
You were a girl who lived in my town
The richest girl with the biggest frown
And everytime I play my music loud
I’ll kinda wonder where you’re leaving now
Track Name: Steal My Sunshine
Lyrics:

Tell me everything’s gonna be all right
(We) studied at my house on a Tuesday night
You’re telling all your friends “Yeahh, I guess he’s all right”
I’m Telling all my friends that we partied all night
Tell me everything’s gonna be all right
Even if you don’t see nothing in me
In you I see someone I wanted to be, with me

I don’t know why
She ha d to steal my sunshine
I got to go the whole night awake

I’ve been so blind
Why did she steal my sunshine
Why don’t you steal my whole life away?

Tell me everything’s gonna be all right
Party at my house on a Friday night
We made out in the closet and I felt you up twice
Telling all my friends that we did it all night
One kiss and a mix CD
But then you left with Jimmy cause he’s cooler than me
Tell me everything’s gonna be all right
Wishing all the wrongs made something right
Kinda woke up from the dream and saw the nananananana
Track Name: Can You Hear It?
Lyrics:

I can see that you can’t feel the pain
But your heart skips a beat just the same
You’re in love, its ok, trust the facts
With your eyes closed it’s all looking black

After so many times
After so many times

(uhoh, uhoh, uhoh)
Tell me can you hear it?
If you don’t wanna feel it
Tell me can you hear it?
If you don’t wanna feel it

Stop
Look around
You can’t see my love or hear a sound

You don’t know what you do to yourself
And the knife in your arm cuts itself
You don’t know how you feel do you though?
And how hard should you cry til you know

After so many times
Why do you wanna be blind?

(uhoh, uhoh, uhoh)
Tell me can you hear it?
If you don’t wanna feel it
Tell me can you hear it?
If you don’t wanna feel it

Come
Take my soul
Take my melody, but I can’t take you home

Have my kids
Be my child
I just wanna see you smile

oo Can you feel it now – it’s this heart of mine
oo Can you see it now – I’ll be yours sometime
oo Can you feel it now – beating out of time
oo Can you see it now – all the light that shines
Track Name: Ba Ba Ba
Lyrics:

People always tell you “You should chase your dreams”
But they’re talking to you from an office seat

Get your feet off the ground
Keep your head in the clouds
Raise your hands sing it loud

BA BA BA BA BA BA BA

Don’t be
Afraid
To dream
Never be
Afraid
To sing

Get your feet off the ground
Keep your head in the clouds
Raise your hands sing it loud
(Soon you’ll be underground)
Track Name: Every Little Thing You Love
Lyrics:

Every little thing you love
Every little thing you love
Every little thing you love
Comes from God uh-huh

Look at the birds and the bees
Squirrels going nuts in the trees
Every little fish in the pond
Even your broken heart

(Chorus)

All the words grandma said
When she was tucking you into bed
All of your hopes and dreams
Even your tear-stained cheeks

(Chorus)

I don’t know why they hurt you
I don’t know why they made you cry
Leave it to their anger
Leave them all their pain
You’ve got nothing to explain

I know you tried to be there
And when you finally say goodbye
It goes deeper than the ocean
Higher than the sky
And you may never find out why
But don’t cry

(Chorus)
Track Name: Angeline
Lyrics:

I’ll see you, girl, ’round the neighborhood,
Near the place we stood together.

No big deal, it’s just the way you feel
Right now, but not forever.

And if you don’t want me I will try and try and try,
And if you don’t love me I will find
a different day for the same story.

One damn thing and you wouldn’t let it be,
Walked right out on me, I’m still here.

Waiting for you, how I do adore you.
I know that we’re not over.

And if you don’t want me I will try and try and try,
And if you don’t love me I will find
a different day for the same story.

O, now, baby, can’t you see,
I’m so withered,
I’m just worn down,
Waiting for you.
And, girl, if you come through to me,
I will make you smile,
Make you feel alright.

O, Angeline,
O, Angeline,
O, Angeline,
Come back home.
O, Angeline,
O, Angeline.
Track Name: This Is Our Song
Lyrics:

I remember you from my dreams
The summer we both turned sweet 16
and your dress smelled like tangerines
and your mom was a beauty queen

Hey! Hey! Hey! Yeah!
Hey! Hey! Hey! Come on!
Hey! Hey! Hey! Yeah!
Hey! Hey! This is our song!

I remember you from my past
You were my first love but not the last
Every kiss with our eyes closed tight
I keep them with me til the end of time
Track Name: Love Me
Lyrics:

Ahhhhhhhhhhh
Ahhhhhhhhhhh

I would give you all my money
All my hugs and kisses honey
And if you think it’s funny
I’d buy you a little bunny

You won’t even have to owe me
All you gotta do is hold me
It’s up to you

What becomes of the broken hearted
Saw your eyes as we both departed
Snuck around and walked behind you
Dreamed of you just like dreamers do

Now that I’ve followed you home, Rock me like Betty from The Flinstones
(I don’t wanna be the one who’s left out in the cold and all alone)
It’s up to you

Don’t say one word
Just walk by and let me see your pretty hair
Smell your perfume floating in the breeze

Bridge Vocal 1:
When I saw you on the train
You don’t see me
Oh how I want you
And now I’ve got to, got to, got to, getchoo!

Bridge Vocal 2:
Look what you’ve given, what you’ve given to me
Never been happy, just been sad and lonely
And everyone I see just gives me the shrug
I’m only looking for a girl I can hug
Am I freaking, Am I freaking you out?
Am I freaking, Am I freaking you out?

I would give you all my money
All my hugs and kisses honey
And if you think it’s funny
I’d buy you a little bunny
Track Name: Moonlight
Lyrics:

Down to the basement to tell me you’re telling me your fears
And we go down to the basement to drown cause it’s filling up with tears
Your hollow heart is spilling paint all over my chest
I said “I love you so much”, You said “I like you I guess”
So now my pressure’s sinking lower cause I don’t know what you’re saying
Are we breaking up baby, why love so crazy?

And I don’t know where you are under this big sky…

Remember that one night when we made out hard on your couch
And I drooled on your face and we left and your dad was passed out?
I wanna stay here ten more minutes with you, nothing’s ever right without you
Driving all night while the hours tick by, toward me
Baby don’t you know it, we got nothing to believe in
Always coming up even, I called you up this evening

And I don’t know where you are under this big sky
And do you see the same stars and the moon as I?
(Wait/And) I don’t know I don’t know I don’t know I don’t know

You’ve been there
Touching me with your hair
On the hill near the sky
I can’t get you off my mind
But I tell no one
There’s no one, no, no, I will never tell
No, no, no, know when I think about you…
Love hasn’t been the same since I left without you

(Wait/And) I don’t know I don’t know I don’t know I don’t know
Track Name: Haunted House
Lyrics:

I’ve been living here with you
In the fog where the noises grew
All the little goose bumps on you
Are we living with the undead too?

A haunted house in the middle of the night
A haunted house in the middle of my mind
Look how dark our love it shines
A black hole in the middle of the sky

I think it’s haunted, I know it’s haunted now

We’ve been locking the door so tight
Keep it open for the rainy night

I’ve been living here with you
I’ve been living here with you
I don’t know what you’re gonna do
Oh-whoa-whoa-whoa-whoa-whoa-whoa

Can you hear? Can you hear?
Can you hear the vampires moan?
I’m out of blood and you’re sucking on my bones
Like an ear with an endless drone
I hear your breath when I pick up the phone

I think it’s haunted, I know it’s haunted now

Cut me open and look inside
Is it empty or are you blind?

I’ve been living here with you
I’ve been living here with you
Hollowed out like a ghost for you
Oh-whoa-whoa-whoa-whoa-whoa-whoa

It’s a matter of time
I wish time would unwind
Oh-whoa-whoa-whoa-whoa-whoa-whoa

I’ve been sleeping here with you
Laying dead in the bed with you
I’ve been living here with you
With you with you…
Track Name: Love Explosion
Lyrics:

Hey what you feeling from the impact baby?
Hey what you feeling inside?
Your heart is melting and your vision’s hazy
I guess you’re feeling all right

I don’t know why
I don’t know why I hide
I don’t know why (I hide)

What you feel, feel is love
What you feel, feel is love
Its love, don’t hide

Hey what you feeling from the impact baby?
A radiation vibe?
I feel it too and now the pain is fading
Hey what you feeling inside?

I don’t know why
It’s just that I’m so shy
I don’t know why I hide

What you feel, feel is love
And it was sent/came down from above
Its love, don’t hide

Don’t hide

What you feel, feel is love
What you feel, feel is love
Its love

What you feel, feel is love
What you feel, feel is love
Its love, don’t hide
