She writes about that serial killer
you saw in the movies.

She writes about your sad break up
ánd your happily ever-after.
Jane Who writes about you,
in the most various ways.

Track Name: 24
You turned 24, I bought you a cake.
Nervous of course, didn’t know what you’d say.
And all of my love poured into a card saying “happy birthday”, “happy birthday”.

All of my expectations, all of my hopes and dreams
all of my imagination and only one day to make them real.

You turned 24. We went shopping downtown.
And inside the store, just looking around,
the salesman thought we were more than just friends
and I was pretending that
that all of my expectations, all of my hopes and dreams,
all of my imagination could maybe one day become real.

We went to a party that night, dancing and laughing and drinking to life.
I came to celebrate you, in the meantime having a great time too.
We went to a party that day. Your costume had fake blood that stuck to my face.
We went to the party alone, and when it was over I left on my own.

‘Cause all of my expectations, all of my hopes and dreams,
all of my imagination would never become real oh.
They would never become real, they would never become real.
Track Name: I Dare You
Fire me up. I dare you to touch me
without making me cry, without making me cry.
Fire me up. I dare you to love me
for just this once, for just this once.

And all I do is sit and think about you,
when all I could be doing is finding someone new.

But all of these feelings give me hell
like a fall from the ceiling and I fell hard,
I fell hard, I fell hard for you,
like I knew I would.

Wire me up. Send the signals to my heart.
I dare you to want me. I dare you to want me.
Wire me up. I dare you to touch me
just once, once, once without making me cry.

Still all I do, is fall for you, when all I want is for this to be over, over.

All of these feelings give me hell
like a fall from the ceiling and I fell hard,
I fell hard, I fell hard for you,
like I knew I would.

Fire me up. I dare you to touch me
without making me cry, without making me cry-oh.
Fire me up. I dare you to love me
for just this once, for just this once.

Still all I do is fall for you.

All of these feelings give me hell
like a fall from the ceiling and I fell hard,
I fell hard, I fell hard for you
like I knew I would.
Track Name: Consequences
Red stain on the carpet, I’m trying to wash it off.
Just a napkin doesn’t cut it, but with soap it comes right off.
I closed the window yesterday, when we all went to bed.
I tried but I was wide awake, I don’t think I even slept.

And all the consequences, they all add up and get worse
when all the common senses all get turned off. They all got turned off.

I was standing in the hall. You were downstairs showering
when I felt the alcohol. And I started worrying

about all the consequences, they all add up and get worse
when all the common senses all get turned off. They all got turned off.

And you make it easy. And you make it easy for me. And you make it easy
to turn them off, oh, to turn them off, to turn them off.
Track Name: Anxiety
I’ve been worrying for weeks at a time
if this is all there is, if there is more to life.
And I’m sketching images of the future in my mind.
Tear up these visions and throw them in a fire.

And I’m so afraid that my fate isn’t written in stone
and I’ll have to find my own way home.

And what if in time I will die alone?
And they’ll smell me through the walls of my vacant home
weeks after passing ‘till someone rushes through the door
just to find me lying spread out on the kitchen floor.

But what if I don’t? What if I’ll be coming home to you?
And you welcome me from the next room
while I’m taking off my shoes.
And I hear the sound of our song on repeat.
Then I could say I lived a happy life indeed.
Track Name: All I Want
Warm water rushes down, salty taste in my mouth.
Black trails running down my chin. I really needed this.

And you had me at hello. And you had me.

‘Cause all I want, all I want, all I want is you.

3AM drunk, clothes off. Embracing this warm gracious waterfall
cloaking my faults and scars, I’m pretending it’s your arms

And you had me at hello. And you had me.

‘Cause all I want, all I want, all I want is you.
‘Cause all I want, all I want, all I want is you.

And another drink, and another drink, and another drink
‘till I stop to think and all of this ink starts spilling out and turns into words, for the worst.
And another drink, I know it’s not right. My heavy heart sinks and pulls down my mind
until my body lies motionless on the ground, the ground.

‘Cause all I want, all I want, all I want is you.
‘Cause all I want, all I want, all I want is you.
Track Name: Let Me Go
Soft smoke, peeled skin.
Scars and burns.
Warm cloak, hiding
from the world.

Sorry I can’t deal with anything you throw my way, I turned away.
Forced to take a different road.

If I don’t let this go I’ll be spending the rest of my days by myself oh.
If I don’t let this go, you’ll let me go.
If I don’t let you know how I’m feeling, I’ll never know myself oh.
If I don’t let this go, you’ll let me go.
You’ll let me go.

Cold chills, eyes closed.
Restless mind.
Sweet pill swallowed.
Reckless night.

Sorry I can’t deal with anything you throw my way, I turned away.
Forced to take a different road.
(Hey Robin, it’s me. Just thought I’d call you.
Listen, some weird stuff is going on with me right now.
I don’t know how to explain. All I know is; I’m not okay.)

If I don’t let this go I’ll be spending the rest of my days by myself oh.
If I don’t let this go, you’ll let me go.
If I don’t let you know how I’m feeling, I’ll never know myself oh.
If I don’t let this go, you’ll let me go.
You’ll let me go, you’ll let me go.

If I don’t let this go I’ll be spending the rest of my days by myself oh.
If I don’t let this go, you’ll let me go.
You’ll let me go.
Track Name: The Afterparty
Robin’s tired and wants to sleep on the couch.
I lock myself in the bathroom for one of my breakdowns.
I convince myself I’m fine, I convince myself I’m fine.
I convince myself I’m fine, I’m fine.

And Robin starts to talk and talk about seeing ghosts here in the dark
and he doesn’t even pause or stop when I walk over with my pants off.
I rub my legs when I sit myself down on his couch and I listen to the sound
of his voice as he tells me he wants to go to sleep now.

And we didn’t say goodnight, oh we didn’t say goodnight.
And I wasn’t really fine oh no.
And we didn’t say goodnight, oh we didn’t say goodnight.
And I didn’t really sleep.

Robin’s tired and wants to sleep on the couch.
