Track Name: Me or New York
all of these faces look just the same
lookin for someone in me
all of em wanting to see how i’ve changed
i don’t know who’s to blame… me or new york

they keep on askin where are you goin
i don’t have the answer in me
they keep on bein so sure without knowin
there aint no place like home it’s me or new york

me and new york never sleep any more
we just keep movin on without goin nowhere
leavin before i could take it or go
now i’m tired and nobody’s going to care
what are we waitin here for it’s me or new york

outta these windows they keep on movin
i just wanna fall back asleep
all of their eyes on me faintly accusing
who are you tryin to be…

me and new york never sleep any more
we just keep movin on without goin nowhere
leavin before i could take it or go
now i’m tired and nobody’s going to care
what are we waitin here for it’s me or new york

late nights fade into
day light wired and
weary we dream all alone

the trains and my mind losin track of the time
one or the other must go

me and new york never sleep any more
we just keep movin on without goin nowhere
leavin before i could take it or go
now i’m tired and nobody’s going to care
what are we waitin here for it’s me or new york
Track Name: The Other Girl
i wanna be the girl who dances
the one whos called and never answers
i wanna take you down like a tidal wave

i wanna live inside your freedom
go home late and leave you needin
i wanna ride your fever til it breaks

and you’re the boy they all adore
you always get your way
they go in and out your door
and then you walk away

i wanna be the other girl
i wanna be the one you never leave
i wanna be the other girl
i wanna be your sweetest mystery

i wanna stay and rock your world
in a way that no one else can do
they’ll come and go you know i won't
i wanna be the other girl to you

don’t get me wrong you drive me crazy
its getting hard to keep behaving
but i can be good when i got so much to lose

haven’t we both got toys enough thru
all of the girls and boys i love you
so many ways i don’t wanna choose

and there’s nothing we cant talk about
i think my heart would break
if you ever started treating me
like just another game

i wanna be the other girl
i wanna be the one you never leave
i wanna be the other girl
i wanna be your sweetest mystery

i wanna stay and rock your world
in a way that no one else can do
they’ll come and go you know i won't
i wanna be the other girl to you
Track Name: Judgement Day
take this book of lies and burn it down
break your bank of rules
scrape your knees and bleed the fire out
flame to fight the fuel

hold your head up high to face the past
stare it in the teeth
question everything you never ask
the earth shall drink the meek

is there lighting in your veins
is there something that remains
nothings ever gonna change
so take yourself out in the rain
life is leadin while you wait
waitin for your judgement day

hypocrites and fools to line your tower
proof you might belong
justified and cruel the velvet hour
drowns out all your wrong

is there lighting in your veins
is there something that remains
nothings ever gonna change
so take yourself out in the rain
life is leadin while you wait
waitin for your judgement day

you woke up dead
you filled your head
with all this shit to crowd the pain

your promised land
slips thru your hands
the soul you sacrificed to save

is there lighting in your veins
is there something that remains
nothings ever gonna change
so take yourself out in the rain
life is leadin while you wait
waitin for your judgement day
Track Name: Do It
doesn’t really matter why
are you gonna be up all night again
its not up to you to figure out what’s going on
inside someone else's head

if you want something done what are you waiting for
if you don’t have enough gotta get something more
if you wanna be loved better start with yourself
if you want something done then do it do it

is this the life you wanna have
are you really waiting for the phone to ring
just take a hint get over it you’re all alone
have you never learned a thing

if you want something done what are you waiting for
if you don’t have enough gotta get something more
if you wanna be loved better start with yourself
if you want something done then do it do it

it’s a short time you're here and a long time you're gone
its the life of your time and it keeps moving on
if you have something left you been meaning to say
if you want something done then do it do it

no one’s here to tell you how to live your life
and you'll never find yourself in someone else’s eyes

if you want something done what are you waiting for
if you don’t have enough gotta get something more
if you wanna be loved better start with yourself
if you want something done then do it do it
Track Name: Letting You Go
This is the part where i walk away
Fade to darkness start this back off where u found me
This is the day i say i'm busy when i'm not
And watch u try to bring me back before i'm really gone

This is where i start letting you go
thÍs is where it all comes down
This is when i first begin getting over u
this is where it all comes down 


This is where u start to scare me 

Weaving me between your threads of fables gold and blue
 
dark as plunder smooth like heroin

i fly away on what you see in all ive never been


This is where i start letting you go
thÍs is where it all comes down
This is when i first begin getting over u
this is where it all comes down 


and you could wrap me up
In boystained sheets and midday
morn until the sun goes out

tie me down til all these days gone by give up the
ghost
 and fill me til i drown

i’m falling
i’m falling
theres no way out

i’ll break you
i’ll break you now

This is where i start letting you go
This is where it all comes down-

This is where i start letting you go
thÍs is where it all comes down
This is when i first begin getting over u
this is where it all comes down 

Track Name: Fighting for Crumbs
damn my intuition here it goes
wish i didn’t know the things i know
youre backing off from me
i saw it happening
the moment she came back to you

you never said so didn’t have to
that sinking feeling always knew
and i don’t understand
you’re trying to hide it but you can’t
no need to tell me that its true

looks like it’s time to walk away
looks like my moment here is done
your heart is broken in too many pieces
and i’m not fighting for crumbs

did you really think i wouldn’t notice
it hurts the most that you don’t know this
i hear what you don’t say
i see it on your face
leaving out the truth is still a lie

looks like it’s time to walk away
looks like my moment here is done
your heart is broken in too many pieces
and i’m not fighting for crumbs

you want me here in case she breaks your heart again
you keep your second place i only came to win

looks like it’s time to walk away
looks like my moment here is done
your heart is broken in too many pieces
and i’m not fighting for crumbs
Track Name: Is This What You Meant
rushin through the world in your unmade bed
with your head on fire and your heart undressed
you can always tell when youre in my dreams

nothing but the clothes that you left remain
in a paper bag with a faded stain
you can always tell when i wipe you clean

aint no surprise you’d call me up today
aint no surprise i’m still the same

is this what you meant, is this what you said
that some day i might miss you when youre gone
is this what you saw, is this what you want
just to hear me say that i was wrong

isn’t this right where i belong
here on the floor imploring you to change your mind
is this what you meant, is this what you meant
still no less the mess you left behind

Don't u think I know I'm a joke these days
with a broken track and a laugh I've saved
From the time I almost gave a damn

Guess i built u up til u tumbled down
And u tried so hard just to stay around
U tried to love me the way I am

i never heard a word u had to say
so mad i couldn't have my way


is this what you meant, is this what you said
that some day i might miss you when youre gone
is this what you saw, is this what you want
just to hear me say that i was wrong

isn’t this right where i belong
here on the floor imploring you to change your mind
is this what you meant, is this what you meant
still no less the mess you left behind

still no less alone without your hand in mine
waiting by the phone after all this time
wishing i had one more chance to never let you go
wishing you’d come say i told you so

is this what you meant, is this what you said
that some day i might miss you when youre gone
is this what you saw, is this what you want
just to hear me say that i was wrong

isn’t this right where i belong
here on the floor imploring you to change your mind
is this what you meant, is this what you meant
still no less the mess you left behind
Track Name: Anyway
i’m bruised again i wear it well
the self inflicted tale they tell
i singed my hair i broke my nails
you’d love me then if all else failed

the night was long and dark and just
another dagger to my trust
i thrust it in until i bleed
i wiped my point for you to see

and anyway it’s over now
nothing left to say
i don’t know why i don’t care how
it’s over anyway
its broken in pieces
you got the space you needed
too late to try just say goodbye
its over anyway

i fell so far i felt so small
i shrank to not exist at all
i beat me up till i was sure
you gave me just what i deserved

i woke up every day afraid
my so called faith went up in flames
still i believed in all your lies
for the life of me i don’t know why

they got you wrong
youre not that strong
i don’t belong here

and anyway it’s over now
nothing left to say
i don’t know why i don’t care how
it’s over anyway
its broken in pieces
you got the space you needed
too late to try just say goodbye
its over anyway

you'll say i’m self destructive i constructed
all this tragedy
go tell them all it’s all my fault
you’ll tell them i was crazy

and anyway it’s over now nothing left to say

and anyway it’s over now
nothing left to say
i don’t know why i don’t care how
it’s over anyway
its broken in pieces
you got the space you needed
too late to try just say goodbye
its over anyway
Track Name: There Is No Someday
Fairy tales are made for children
no one cares if london's burnin
Down around you rainin pots of gold


even rainbows end and move along
The knight in shining armor strong
Goes weak and drops you in the road


And here you come again   
To reach beneath my pillow

well save your penny I already know:

There is no someday
There is no once upon a time
There is no one day

There is no when the stars align

No wait and see no maybe we

can try another way
Our happy end will never come
There is no someday


Make believe is fine and well
when
 all you need are lies you tell yourself 
 
to make it easier to breathe



Windows don't go flyin open

Every time a doors been closed and
 
toads arent really princes at your feet princes


Wishes don't come true
 
Shooting stars don't give a damn
 
they're just like you they're never gonna change



There is no someday
There is no once upon a time
There is no one day

There is no when the stars align

No wait and see no maybe we

can try another way
Our happy end will never come
There is no someday


The storm will sleep far out at sea
the mermaids will be swimming in the sky
You'll hold me close and set me free

when horses grow a silver horn and fly

There is no someday
There is no once upon a time
There is no one day

There is no when the stars align

No wait and see no maybe we

can try another way
Our happy end will never come
There is no someday

Track Name: I Hope It's Me
your life is like a movie
your heart’s a thing of beauty
you spread your beats all over town

i don’t know how you do it
you make em all so stupid
they love you when you're not around

i've been seeing something thru the cracks
will i catch you looking back

when the crowd around you starts to make you lonely
when the traffic at your door is growing old
when you need a place to lay down your story
when the only thing you wanna be is home

when you wanna wake up knowing who you're holding
the day the freedom stops feeling free
when you're ready to give all of you to someone
i hope its me, i hope its me

i’ll never let you see this
i’ll keep your dirty secrets
i’ll help you sweep the mess you make

but i can barely breathe sometimes
i wonder if you see the kind
of everything i wanna say

and yeah you're chasing what you feel right now
but someday you may turn around

when the crowd around you starts to make you lonely
when the traffic at your door is growing old
when you need a place to lay down your story
when the only thing you wanna be is home

when you wanna wake up knowing who you're holding
the day the freedom stops feeling free
when you're ready to give all of you to someone
i hope its me, i hope its me

you could make me something no one else has done
someone just like you has never come

when the crowd around you starts to make you lonely
when the traffic at your door is growing old
when you need a place to lay down your story
when the only thing you wanna be is home

when you wanna wake up knowing who you're holding
the day the freedom stops feeling free
when you're ready to give all of you to someone
i hope its me, i hope its me
i hope it's me
Track Name: Right Now (feat. Jeff Fiorello)
i always think of you at the wrong times
she’s close enough to kiss
i thought i wanted this
but when i think of you i change my mind

tonight i laughed so hard it ached
put a silly movie on
then we talked until the dawn
but you’re the reason why i’m still awake (yeah yeah yeah)

i wanna be holding you right now
i wanna fall asleep in your arms
wanna feel your breath in my hair
i wanna be wherever you are

tonight i stayed out late and i drank a few
she called at half past three
and i smiled in my sleep
but i still wished it were you

tonight we watched the moon til the sun came out
i took his hand in mine
and i went all warm inside
but then i thought of you and it all fell down (down down down)

i wanna be holding you right now
i wanna fall asleep in your arms
wanna feel your breath in my hair
i wanna be wherever you are

you said i mess with your mind
i chose to hear a compliment
you were only real when you looked in my eyes
i saw everything you meant

i wanna be holding you right now
i wanna fall asleep in your arms
wanna feel your breath in my hair
i wanna be wherever you are

i wanna be holding you right now
i wanna fall asleep in your arms
wanna feel your breath in my hair
i wanna be wherever you are

you were only real when you looked in my eyes
