Track Name: Let Me Know
You might always have the money
But you wont always have the time
And you can spend the former on the latter
But it wont matter
No it wont matter

Cuz its out of our hands
Yeah it’s out of our hands
And all I can do
Is hold your hand
For as long as I can


And I know that it’s a bit naïve
To believe that you need me
But next year is so far out of sight
So I’m just hoping hoping hoping this is right


But I know
That time will tell
Yes time will tell
But until we know what we’re gonna do
For right now ive got you


And allow me to be candid for a moment
But you already know it
Wo ai ni
And I don’t expect you to repeat
That is only if you mean it
So tell me if you mean it

Cuz I need to know which way to go
Which way to go
So when youre ready
Just let me know
Track Name: It's Worth It
Can we make a time machine, and load it up with memories so clear we'll see forever?
And even if those memories hurt, it still would be completely worth it for memories like these.
Well, you and me have got to be the strangest pairing ever seen, you're so short!
And I'm so tall.
But apples, peaches, pumpkin pie,
We only live until we die, and it's worth it for memories like these.
Like la la la, la da da da, la da da da, la da da da la la da da dum, la da da dum da dum
la la la la la la la la la la la la la la la da da dum da dum

And seasons change so rapidly, it's difficult to even see the leaves before they're gone.
And friends you thought forgot about you suddenly are reaching out, and it's worth it for memories like these.

June, July, and August passed without a doubt.
Down came the rain, and washed the Summer out.
Out came the sun and dried up all that rain, and the moments of our lives began again.
And it was worth it.
It was worth it for memories like these.

So can we make that time machine and load it up with memories so clear, we'll see forever?
And even if those memories hurt, it still would be completely worth it for memories like these.
Like la la la...etc.

Yeah, even if those memories hurt, it still would be completely worth it for memories like these.
Track Name: Baby Burden
A disappointment is such an easy thing to be
It seems to come so naturally to me, lately
I asked a baby if he’s ever been a burden
I said if you’re not sure then just compare yourself to me

Cuz I’ve become a prime example
Of someone who just cant quite handle
The majority of my responsibility

But you’ll never stopped being judged
The gavel always comes down hard
And when the verdict comes around
You might have to dear with alone, yes alone

Sometimes magnets lose their charge
And sometimes hearts enlarge, only to deflate
And I believe less than half of everything that people say
And you can’t expect for things to change in a day
No you can’t expect for things to change in a day
Track Name: It Could Be Worse
It’s like kissing with your teeth clenched, running through the pouring rain drenched in anger and sorrow and fear of tomorrow, cause you never gave today a proper chance!
And it’s like swimming in a song, holding your breath for too long, and running through quick sand while reaching out your hand and kicking and screaming throughout your own party, cause you got mustard on your skirt!

Oh, It could be worse!
It could always be worse!
I promise you, I promise you it could be worse!

Than playing nurse to a bunch of self-diagnosed patients who are wearing on your patience, you can feed them beer and lies until the night finally dies, and you go home.
You’re still alone.
Until the day, the day is reversed.

And it could be worse!
It could always be worse!
I promise you, I promise you it could be worse!

Than biting your tongue to spite your heart,
Wanting to speak the truth, but not able to start,
Than to hold your soul under lock and key,
Constantly scared of the girl you’d be,
Or the boy so afraid of what he don’t know
Too proud to ask, too smart to let it show,
He’ll look into your face,
And he’ll smile to your face,
And he’ll tell you, he’ll tell you he LOVES you!
And you’ll never believe him.
For whatever reason.
Til’ he gives up and lets you go-oh-oh!

And it could be worse!
It could always be worse!
I promise you, I promise you it could be worse!

Cause there’s one way out,
You have to face yourself beyond the shadow of a shadow of a shadow of a shadow of a shadow of a doubt!

And what could be worse?
Oh what could be worse?
Can somebody tell me what could be worse?
Oh, there’s somebody who’s got it worse than you’ve got it,
Cause you, you could be dead or stupid!
Same thing!
Track Name: Actors and Authors
Well all your favorite actors died
And all your favorite bands sold out
And you never have sufficient funds inside your bank account
And the book that you were reading
It was missing the last page
And you had to make a choice to finish it or throw it away
And you can parallel that problem
To life , or love, or death
But if you can’t see what the ending’s like, why are you worried about it

But you’re not the only one that’s scared of the afterlife
And you’re not the only one that’s haunted by the ghosts of time
But you should realize
As much as you think you control your life you can’t control when it’s time to die
As much as you think you control your life you can’t control when it’s time to die

And all your favorite authors lied
There was no truth to what they wrote about
And that pretty bird that sang to you has sadly flown south
And you used to be so happy, but now you sit around and pout
And all the drinking ruins all the words that come out of your mouth

But we’ll just keep on shaving minutes off our lives
And we’ll always do the things we know aren’t right
But we’ll sing tonight
If your number came up in the middle of the night
Could you say that you enjoyed your life?
If your number came up in the middle of the night
Could you say that you enjoyed your life?
Track Name: Spelling Bee
Well well well
It's hard to be an optimist in a pessimistic world
you can never tell if the glass is half empty
or if it is half full

And it's hard to look on the bright side of things
when the bright side is all dark
and the dark side of things is the bright side of things
depending on who you talk to

It's perfectly normal to have your opinions vary from day to day
and it's perfectly normal to take offense to what some people say
but something abnormal that's because normal in our society
It's a nasty disease, it's the bee's knees
it's called hypocrisy

Hypocrisy, hypocrisy
let's go watch some MTV

Conformity, conformity
I won't let myself become a sheep

Misery,misery
I hide it all so gracefully

Symmetry, symmetry
I want someone to align with me
Track Name: No Mystery
you didn't remember my birthday,
or at least you didn't call.
cause that would be easy,
not much mystery at all.
but then, that autumn night,
you dropped me a line
just to tell me, tell me i was on your mind.

what were you thinking?
i ask my self the same.
what was i thinking?
it's not the time to blame.
not me or you for things we've both been through.
cause i've learned now
that if it's broken, i should replace it,
and if it's not broken yet,
i've gotta try, i've gotta try my best not to break it.

i try to live in the moment,
but i can't forget the past.
just have to learn from it.
these feelings never last.
not in real-time or in memories,
they fade and fade away
as time gives us our character,
as we progress with age.

what were you thinking?
i ask myself the same.
what was i thinking?
you may have never changed
from the person i knew i knew,
but i've learned now
that if it's broken, i should replace it,
and if it's not broken yet,
i've gotta try,
i've gotta try my best not to break it.

and it turns out money makes the fountain of youth,
while music makes a mountain of truth,
and faith in friendship loses luster as hearts grow harder still
i never was one to trust, but your patience broke my will
and even though it pains me to admit i know you're right
it's a life-long tunnel
til we finally, finally, finally reach the light!

who knows what we're thinking?
they don't even know our names!
you and me with arms linking,
and who cares who's to blame?
cause we've learned now,
that if it's broken, we should replace it,
and if it's not broken yet,
we've gotta try, we've gotta try our best not to break it
we've gotta hold our breath, and try our best not to break it!
