Track Name: Cigarette Romance
I let the bus rock me to sleep as miles pass under my feet
I took a wrong turn on the right road, tying my loose ends with a tightrope
I'm the two-faced circus freak you made in your daydreams
I'm stuck inside this cycle, because of you I'll die alone

To the corner, to the bar
Toasting to wherever you are
'Cause the miles don't tell stories like you do
To this cigarette romance
I have to say it's been a drag
'Cause no one's messed me up quite like you
I'm addicted to you

Reality hits like a cold in the dark, always unknown
I made a right choice at the wrong time, and the body's on the sidewalk that they've outlined
You're a faceless mystery destroying everything you see
You're a beautiful mess in a black dress and I regret I ever came

To the corner, to the bar
Toasting to wherever you are
'Cause the miles don't tell stories like you do
To this cigarette romance
I have to say it's been a drag
'Cause no one's messed me up quite like you
I'm addicted to

Every single way you drag me down
And put my head up in the clouds
You better believe I'm not getting over you any time soon
Until then, I'll shut this down

To the corner, to the bar
Toasting to wherever you are
'Cause the miles don't tell stories like you do
To this cigarette romance
I have to say it's been a drag
'Cause no one's messed me up quite like you
I'm addicted

To the corner, to the bar
Toasting to wherever you are
'Cause the miles don't tell stories like you do
To this cigarette romance
I have to say it's been a drag
'Cause no one's messed me up quite like you
I'm addicted to
Track Name: Wanderlust
What’s it like in Davenport, darling?
The miles never faded so fast
I have to say I’ve been running in circles
Trying to intercept your orbital path
I know I’ve been here before
More often than I care to let show
You keep slipping through my fingers
Safe to say, I’m accident prone

If you knew how much I miss you
I you knew how much I care to let you know

If you ever come home, you look for me
Hang up your halo, rest your wings
If you ever come home, home to me
I’ll be there when you’re in need
'Cause distance doesn’t mean a damn thing
When you mean so much to me
If you ever come home to me
If you ever come home

How is everything you dreamed of, lovely?
I won’t say I didn’t do it for you
You took my hand, said “I don’t believe you”
Now I’ve got three words to prove
You’re keeping time with my heartstrings
Haunting every last one of my dreams
I’m sick of this friendship between
Who we are and what I’d like to be

Because when you leave, I lose my sheen
With you here, I rinse and repeat
And I know I’ll never be clean
I’m no boy to beg, I’m no man to please
But God, I’d be so pleased if you would be with me
Track Name: Take Me Home
Shelby, I think it's the alcohol that's talking
You had a bit too much to drink last night, but that's okay
You, you might have noticed me staring at you across the room
That might have made you say

Baby, won't you take me home?
I need someone to hold close
I've been here too long all by myself and I don't wanna go it alone
Baby, don't you tell me no
You don't have to be so cold
Take me home

Shelby, we can spend all evening talking
But we both know where we will be when the sun comes up
Don't be so hasty, we've got all the time we need
Let's sit back, relax, relapse, so we can do it again

Baby, won't you take me home?
I need someone to hold close
I've been here too long all by myself and I don't wanna go it alone
Baby, don't you tell me no
You don't have to be so cold
Take me home

If just one drink could help us break the ice
Then I should drink 'till it's all melted away
She thinks I'm cold, but I'm stone to the outside
I'll let her in so I can hear her say

Baby, won't you take me home?
I need someone to hold close
I've been here too long all by myself and I don't wanna go it alone
Baby, don't you tell me no
You don't have to be so cold
Take me home
Track Name: You Put the End in Friend
Oh my, you heard it through the grapevine
Or online, whichever you prefer
Your lies are keeping us from dreaming
Tongue tied, trying to fight your demons

I've seen more spine in notebooks
Than I have seen in you
And I've seen potholes keep themselves deeper than you

I hope the next time that you run your mouth, your tongue trips up on untied vowels
'Cause you keep your lips as loose as Gossip Girl
Keep to yourself or let it go

If I had a dollar for every time you started rumors
I'd pay your funeral expenses
'Cause you're dying for attention, you haven't learned your lesson
I hope a casket can shut you up for good

I'm sending postcards to the morgue asking about you
'Cause you've been dead to me for oh so long
They say cheaters never quit, and quitters never do
I think they both fit you oh so well

Secrets don't make friends, but they will keep them
