Track Name: When I Sleep
When I sleep, when I dream,
There's monsters chasing after me.
Woke up late on a tuesday,
Called you up with nothing to say.
Making friends, losing them,
It's always the same
The stuff you see on the tv.
Everything's calling my name

So when I have a son I'm gonna lock him in his room.
Won't let the world get to him
Throw away the tv and the internet connection
When I have a son I'm gonna shelter him,
He'll never see a magazine.
The world is evil, that's what I'll make him think.

Sometimes I can't shake the feeling,
There's someone behind me.
Watching my every move.
This man's gonna kill me.
When I sleep, When I dream,
You're there kissing me.
When you leave I'll be here,
They called me square, they called me queer.
Track Name: You're The Moon
I don't care what you're doin let's just hit the town.
And I know you're mad, but you will come around.
Can't let this night fade away.
This dance we do is ballet.

You're the only one
You know it's true,
I love you.
It's not a sad song.
I'm the Sun, You're the Moon,
I love you.

I'm the Sun, You're the Moon.

Honey, why do you always gotta bring me down.
And I know you grew up in a small town.
But I don't wanna move to LA.
This is Orange County,
It's where I want to stay
Track Name: Everything Brings Me to You
Things change quick.
You're not here
When I need you near.

You're the one,
And in time
I'll make you mine

'Cause everything brings me to you.


Driving home,
to LA
I had to see your face.

This is us,
Every time I shove
This is love.

You just don't know it yet.
Track Name: Grapefruit
Cigarette in your mouth,
You light it, smoke comes out.

You're sour. You're a grapefruit.
Take the skin off, And I eat you.
Track Name: The Looking Glass
The credits roll,
This is the end
of my sad movie,
and I'm crying tonight.

Looking back,
There's things I lack.
I'm not a good boy,
but at least I never liked to fight.

Turn around in the light I found,
It's not my fault,
You always mess things up.

Sad glance through the looking glass,
It's not assault,
You just couldn't shut up.

Plaza Square,
We're all squares
With the clothes we wear,
Walking through the circle tonight.

I felt tough,
You were looking rough,
But it fell apart,
Cause I never liked to fight.
Track Name: We All Need a Friend
My baby looks so good,
With her glasses on.
My baby plays me bass.
Her hair's up in a bun
Tell me about
All this love,
When we fight, we'll figure it out.
Just sing me a song.

It's magic.

Don't wanna go out
No not tonight.
Don't wanna see a stupid band,
No not this time
Let's go up in your room,
Let's start a war.
Take me in your arms,
Find what we're looking for.

It's magic.

I need to hear it.
Tell me how much you love me.
I need to feel it.
Darlin' you mean so much to me.
Driving in my car,
Can't help looking at you.
Staring at the stars
Everything brings me to you.


I wanna be your man,
I'll stay here for you.
Everybody needs a friend, we all need a friend.
And I love you.
Forever and ever and ever
It can't end.
Need you in my life.
Until the end.
Track Name: Trapped
I wonder if she wants me,
As much as I know I need her.
As much as she tells me,
I can't be sure.
And you smell nice,
I get trapped in your arms.
If I'm in love,
Someone hit the alarm.

All these things I feel, tell me is it real?

If you be my MJ, I'll be your Peter.
I'll save the day so we can enjoy the summer.
When you tease my, my heart is beating.
When you're crying, my heart is dying.

If you think my heart is a toy,
You better find a new boy.
Baby you know I need you,
But you're making me blue.
Track Name: Strangers
Everyone changes, I know.
I'm not some naive little boy anymore.
I'm sick of making plans with a stranger.
Ya, you're my best friend, sure.


I won't always be here.

I don't need you in my life now.


You know the catch, makes my head shake.
You let go of my hand, so I left alone.
When life gives you lemons, see what your thoughts make.
I know, I know. All my problems are just chances to grow.


I won't always be here.

I don't need you in my life now.
Track Name: You and Me and Them
You know, pretty soon I should take you home.
So I can meet your dad,
When I did, everything he said
Broke through my back

Across the street, Diamond and Jamboree.
I'll buy you sushi, and do cute things
Until i make you love me.

This is not how it ends,
You and me and them.
I know I'll find a way.
With all the notes I send
It's you and me and them.
I know I'll find a way.

Sometimes you would come to my shows,
Well that's when I would know
How I feel, You're such a big deal to me.

One time, we were sitting in your room
We had nothing to do,
So I thought I'd lean in to kiss you.

This is not how it ends,
You and me and them.
I know I'll find a way.
With all the notes I send
It's you and me and them.
I know I'll find a way.

Tell me how do you feel, Darlin?

How does it feel Darlin?
When you're waving back at me?
How does it feel Darlin?
Don't turn your back on me.
Track Name: Ferris Wheel
If you need a crutch, Don't let in the fear.
If you need someone to love, You know I'm here.
But don't act like you don't care.


They can't end this love.
Anything they do,
I'll find my way to you.
They can't end this love.


If you need affection, You know I'm your man.
Kisses and hugs. Whatever you want. I'll hold your hand.


They can't end this love.
Anything they do,
I'll find my way to you.
They can't end this love.


Up on the Ferris Wheel, I wanna kiss you.
When the car is parked, I wanna kiss you.
The only thing I want to do is kiss you.
I'm gonna kiss you.

Up on the Ferris Wheel, I'm gonna kiss you,
When the car is parked, I'm gonna kiss you.
When you're playing bass, I'm gonna kiss you.
When I see your face, I'm gonna kiss you.
Track Name: Belong
You cut the cord to my guitar.
You didn't want to hear a sad song this time.
Summer is over now. It's november.
And it's gonna get cold.

But I don't wanna get old if you're not by my side.
My heart is what you stole that night we met eyes.
Get ready for winter.

I'm always sad when you walk away,
I didn't want this night to end.
If you're feeling bad, well I'll find a way
To be your best friend.

But I don't wanna get old if you're not by my side.
My heart is what you stole that night we met eyes.
Get ready for winter.

In my arms is where you belong.
Track Name: Break and Bend
Why do I feel like my heart's made of steel?
Everyday, I choose the wrong words to say.
I've made you hurt, there's blood on your shirt.
I don't understand why I fail.

Now I'm in the light, I've gotta make things right.
We break and we bend, you've been a shitty friend.
Swimming in the pool, remember high school.
I don't understand why I fail.

You're not the only one who's been up and gone.
I don't wanna be alone but I spend my time at home.
Don't think I'm depressed, Life just hasn't been the best.
I don't understand why I fail.

Take back the words you said.
I'm not dead. No, not yet.
