Track Name: For Now or For Good
Every little bit
Makes me feel a little less
Like i can deal with it
I’ll pretend i can

But you know that i hate to go through the motions with you
I wish someone would tell me if it’s for now or for good.

I remember how it feels
So i can make it feel real.
I you want me to i will
If you want me to i will

But you know i hate to go through the motions with you
I wish someone would tell me if it’s for now or for good.

Walking out to our car
The parking lot is dark
I say i know where we are
I don't know where we are
Track Name: I Can't Make Up My Mind
When she no longer needs me
Maybe I’ll tell her I’m leaving
And move back to the city
Go back to living with a good friend of mine.
But I can’t make up my mind

Emphasis on the maybe
It goes without saying
There are good reasons for staying
I’m hoping and praying and waiting for a sign
Because i can’t make up my mind

I guess this has been coming
I’m not the good son she
Wants me to be but i want to believe
In the end I’ll do what’s right
But i can’t make up my mind
Track Name: The Two of Us Against Me
I’m on my fourth cup of coffee
I’ve been drinking more since i quit.
I’m kind of getting shaky but nobody has noticed yet.
That’s something i know i can’t hide
I’m the flicker of a neon light.
That you can still see when you close your eyes.
That’s a bad sign.

Since you left I’ve been addicted
To a certain kind of sadness.
A little sentimental. Symptomatic of imbalance,
I can’t get quite right but i try.
I’m the flicker of a neon light
That you can still see when you close your eyes.
That’s a bad sign.

I know it’s hard to believe
Anything and everything
But if you come back it’s going to be
the two of us against me.
Track Name: Taillights
late Sunday night You
ask me to follow you home
Then You run a red light
and leave me alone

As if you’re trying to shake me
But you know I know the way
You’ll say that you were just playing
But it’s telling you didn’t wait
I can't believe you didn't wait

After awhile the light changes
from red to green and I start to drive
headed toward your home
Looking for your taillights
Looking for your taillights
