Track Name: Complicated
It’s complicated.

We build things up, only to break them.

Anticipating,

keep holding it in till you can no longer say it.



There’s a hole in the universe where I’m falling through.

There’s a hole in the universe and it’s shaped like you.



yeah, yeah, oh, oh



I got no alibis.

In this story of spite, there is no black and white.



I’m pulling at my hair.

In this ocean of lies, there is no coming up for air.



There’s a hole in the universe where you used to be.

There’s a hole in the universe inside of me.



(oh, oh)





yeah, yeah, oh, oh



yeah, yeah, oh, oh



I’m screaming my frustration!



Outro
Track Name: Dreamer
If only they could see the view

From behind the eyes that he looks through

All the different blues and greens

and what he thinks that it all means



From his ink-stained fingertips

To the sugar of his lips

Constellation in my sky

He’ll always be my dreamer, mine



If they could spend a day

Inside his shoes then maybe they can choose

Between seeing and believing

Knowing fact and knowing truth



From his ink-stained fingertips

To the sugar of his lips

Constellation in my sky

He’ll always be my dreamer, mine



And he will always stand out

Set apart from the crowd

His feet are planted on the ground

but his head’s lost in the clouds



(in the clouds)



He’s at the end of where I’m ending

The beginning of where I begin

An ever fixed mark we meet

I’m waiting



From his ink-stained fingertips

To the sugar of his lips

Constellation in my sky

He’ll always be my dreamer, mine



And he will always stand out

Set apart from the crowd

His feet are planted on the ground

but his head’s lost in the clouds



(in the clouds)
Track Name: Guitarman
Guitarman



Guitarman, you are everything

that I thought I wanted. And

Guitarman, I am a fool for you

Just like everyone else



Don’t ask me why

Oh I can’t lie

Because I barely even know myself that well

But it’s swell



Guitarman

Your days are shamelessly divided into

“See you later, maybe, baby”s oh no

And I can’t sit still, no until



I do



See you

Oh what to do

Fidgeting in my seat

You’ve got me beat





Guitarman, Guitarman

Must you be so good with those hands?

Guitarman, Guitarman

Every line you sing is a

Sweet demand



You drive me mad

Doo doo doo, doo doo doo doo

Guitarman, guitarman



Your days are shamelessly divided into

“See you later, maybe, baby”s oh no

And I can’t sit still, no until



I do



See you

Oh what to do

Fidgeting in my seat

You’ve got me beat





Guitarman, guitarman, guitarman

Ahh ahhh ahh ahh oh

Yeah yeah yeah oh oh

yeah yeah yeah yeah oh

Yeah yeah yeah oh oh oh

OVER:



I kiss you in the vaccum of sound

that rainfall creates around you and me

The air is dense like water and you might

Move slow but you have nowhere else to be



Nowhere else to be

To be, but with me



Ahhhh.



Your skin is warm like butter and I might

knife through, and you are waiting quietly

Impending darkness blocks out the light

But right now there is no need for us to see



Nowhere else to be

To be, but with me



Ahhhh.



Hard part’s over.

We’ve found each other.

Hard part’s over.

We’ve found each other.
Track Name: Invincible
We never should have left everyone behind

We could have gone so far

We could have gone so far



All of the memories that we have made

We’re gonna forget them.

We’re gonna forget them.



All of the promises that you have made

You’re not gonna keep them.

Oh, you’re not gonna keep them.



And oh oh oh, all of our friends who still don’t know

We’ll who’s gonna tell them?

Oh, who’s gonna tell them that



We couldn’t make it through

The hardship and the pain, no

We thought we had it all

And that we were invincible



But you’re a

]liar, liar.

(oh oh)

Liar, liar



For all your lies, you cannot fool me

The girl on your arm, she has no idea

That you have said all of those things to me before

I will even the score, I will even the score



We couldn’t make it through

The hardship and the pain, no

We thought we had it all

And that we were invincible



But you’re a

]liar, liar.

(oh oh)

Liar, liar



Here we go, oh oh



We couldn’t make it through

The hardship and the pain, no

We thought we had it all

And that we were invincible



But you’re a

]liar, liar.

(oh oh)

Liar, liar.
Track Name: A Heavy Heart
So close to you, now.

Skin to mine, now.

Forever in this place

Let’s stay a while.



They’ll leave us alone,

If we don’t make a sound.

If we stifle our laughter,

If the sheets keep us bound.



Oh so heavy your heart,

That I hold in mine.

And I carry it so,

Wherever I go.



And I carry it so,

Wherever I go.



My love, my only

Eyes as deep as the sea

Underneath your lingering gaze

Will I finally be free.



They’ll leave us alone,

If we don’t make a sound.

If we stifle our laughter,

If the sheets keep us bound.



Oh so heavy your heart,

That I hold in mine.

And I carry it so,

Wherever I go.



Oh so heavy your heart,

That I hold in mine.

And I carry it so,

Wherever I go.
