Track Name: Agree To Disagree
Nobody cares which side of the coin,
you chose to land and disappoint you.
Did you really think that things would be better?
If we followed all your words to the letter?

Well that's the part,
the sweetest part,
where we'll agree
to disagree.

Everybody knows which way you have voted.
And every complaint you have made has been noted.

But realize,
you're just a tool to use and disregard,
when the work is done.

Do you really think that things will get better?

Well that's the part,
the sweetest part,
where we'll agree
to disagree.
Track Name: A Thousand Friends
There's someone out there for me
but so many fools I don't want to meet.
I keep a keen eye for them but make sure
they leave behind an empty seat.
I know exactly where you are,
but I search the streets for you anyway
and hold a million conversations in my head.

'Cause I would rather be bored with you,
than dance with a thousands who all know my name.

You know they're right here on the end of my tongue.
The words to make you turn your tail and run.
You're the first and last thing on my mind,
each day I see another side
and hold a million conversations in my head.

'Cause I would rather be bored with you,
than dance with a thousands who all know my name.
And I would rather be dead to you,
than see you with someone new.

And I'd love to see you again,
but I wouldn't know what to say.
So I'd probably let the moment
quietly slip away and pass us by.
Pass us by.

And I would rather be bored with you,
than dance with a thousands who all know my name.
And I would rather die for you,
than see all my dreams come true.
Track Name: Sweet Nothing
I've loved a million others like you,
But I've got no one to call on when I'm feeling lonely.
You know a little goes an awful long way, now, when you're on your own.

What's the matter with the sentimental person in me?
I'll never know.

Loving you was never meant to make me want to be anything.
But now I know I only ever want to promise you everything.

I sent a message on your birthday,
So I could torture myself when you never got back to me.
While the voices in your head are drowning out anything I've got to say

Wanting you was never meant to make me have to do anything.
But now I find myself relating to you just about everything.

You're my own sweet nothing.
A lover lighter than air.

There are a million others like you,
But I've got nowhere to hide as I try to get over you.
It's impossible to conjure up the strength I need to leave you alone.
What's the matter with the sentimental person in me?
I'll never know.

Loving you was never meant to make me want to be anything,
But now I'm begging you to find a way to make me your everything.

I can't forget you but I've tried to.
And I've got no one to blame but I don't know what else to do,
while I sit and paint a portrait of myself that I can rip off the wall.

Loving you was never meant to make me have to feel anything,
But now I find myself believing I've lost just about everything.

You're my own sweet nothing.
A lover lighter than air.
Track Name: Softly Ending
I,
I had a dream last night,
I couldn't get sober,
I dreamt it was over.
But as the sun began to rise,
when the moon went off to hide,
I saw you there.

You,
You've been there before,
taken by the notion,
we're parted by oceans
of time we've spent apart.
I know that it's no start
but I'm still here.

I wanna lay
my head down on your knees,
I know that I
would dream of something different,
when I fall asleep with you.
Don't want to cry,
but I can't help it.
'Cause I can see,
my world is softly ending,
while you sing your lullabies.

We,
We refuse to see,
about the commotion,
left by the explosion,
That no one turned to see,
That no one heard but me,
when you weren't there.

They,
They don't understand,
how this could be something,
when they can hear nothing.
But whimpers sound as loud,
as bombs inside your head,
when you're alone.

I wanna lay
my head down on your knees,
I know that I
would dream of something different,
when I fall asleep with you.
Don't want to cry,
but I can't help it.
'Cause I can see,
my world is softly ending,
while you sing your lullabies.

And you know it meant something to me.

I wanna lay
my head down on your knees,
I know that I
would dream of something different,
when I fall asleep with you.
Don't want to cry,
but I can't help it.
'Cause I can see,
my world is softly ending,
while you sing your lullabies.

I,
I had a dream last night.
I dreamt it was over.
I dreamt it was over.
Track Name: My Old Songs
When we're alone there's no other place I'd rather be.
You'll never know the things your glowing smiles do to me.
Like words from a song that I've heard before but can't recall,
the sight of you is both familiar something knew to see.
But while I'm away,
the rats come out to play.
My old songs never turn you on anymore.

I know a friend of a friend who could outclass a king.
With more to show for all his troubles than I'll ever bring.
'Cause he knows a joke and you laugh it so gleefully,
and all I do sit and smile when you look at me.
But while he's away,
the rats come out to play.
That old dog never turns you on anymore.

Now I've gone away,
and the rats are here to stay.
My old songs will never comfort you anymore.
Track Name: Ringtone
I made the same dumb face again,
when you remembered my name,
but I've been hoping that you'd try to catch my eye,
when you can see me passing by.

I made the same mistake again.
I tried to play it so cool,
but now my ringtone has become my favorite song.
'Cause you're the only one who calls my number.

And to think I got it wrong.
I've waited far too long,
but you're the only one who means this much to me.

I took the same old roads again,
to get us back to your home,
but I can't seem to find the key to your backdoor,
'cause you're the only one who's got my number.

And to think I got it wrong.
I've waited far too long,
but you're the only one who fits my melody.

You ought to know,
now you ought to know how it feels.

You made the same mistake as me.
You tried to play it so cool,
but now your ringtone has become your favorite song,
'Cause I'm the only one who calls your number.

And to think we got it wrong.
We've waited far too long,
but every day I've won I'll give right back to you.
Back to you.
