Track Name: I Met You
I looked in her eyes that night and I saw
The girl looking back was all I need
I got through the show I had to play
And all through the night I wanted to say
We should leave
You and me
I met you and fell in love
I wanna try to hold her hand if she'll let me
But I think I might be too scared to try
I wanna make it really hard to forget me
Because if I forgot her I would die
So we danced all night
And the time flew by
And she said she'd love me
Until she said goodbye
I could cry
We should try
One more time
I wanna try to hold her hand if she'll let me
But I'd be her best friend if she wants
I wanna make it really hard to forget me
So I can watch her make her tacos for lunch
In the dish that I bought
And gave her for Christmas
After we broke up
The year we practiced Hanukkah
I wanna try to hold her hand if she'll let me
But I think I might be too scared to try
I should try
I wanna make it really heard to forget me
Because if I forgot her I would die
I would die
I would die
Wouldn't I
I met you and fell in love
Track Name: Don't Need Love
Oh love
Will you hold me close
Never let me go
Don't let me go
No love
Will you hold me tight
Squeeze me all night
Tell me it's fine
Love
When you can't hide
Your love
But she doesn't want to hear a second of
And it won't go
Away
I guess it's just another rainy day
Oh baby when you're right
You're so so right
So so so life like
And your eyes
Oh how they shine
I always knew that they'd be there waiting for me
Go
You don't need love
You don't need love
You don't need love
Go
You don't need love
You don't need love
It's only love
Come
Track Name: So Lonely
I'm looking for you
In my reflection
But I would settle for some direction
Or something to go by
Something to see as my life
So I'm fogging up my mirror
So I can see you clearer
My reflection shows me
My reflection shows me
My reflection shows me
My reflection shows me
Just me
Just me
Just me
Ain't that so lonely
Track Name: Magma Mama
Now it's too late
Because I saw you there
And I'm trying not to stare
But you should come on over here
Today
Of baby you're so hot
You got me catching on fire
A hundred miles away
You could be my magma mama
If you wanna
Oh yeah
I think about it every day
And I don't know why I can't shake the thought
Oh baby you're so hot
I see you walking on down the street
Ah baby looking at me
Why don't you walk a little closer babe
I'll be your lava king
But that magma love
It's so way down deep
I think I'm gonna have to dig girl
I'm gonna dig real low
I got to dig a little low now
I got to dig a little lower
I got to dig a little lower
If I wanna get a little closer babe
I want to get real close
I'm gonna get a little closer babe
Closer to you
Your love's like lava
Oh magma mama
I really dig you
Please
Keep your lava lovin next to me
I'm all crazed
Cause you got me in a haze
Won't you
Stay with me
We could catch fire every day
Oh yeah
Oh yeah
Track Name: Sleep On The Phone
I fell asleep waiting for your call
Waiting for your call
Waiting for your call
Wishing I didn't at all
No not at all
No not at all
Why did I lay down my head
There on that bed
Now I wish I was dead
Why did I lay down at all
I missed your call
I missed your call
Dead asleep
I was dead asleep
I was dead asleep
I was dead
I should be on the phone with you
I should be all alone with you
Dead asleep
I was dead asleep
I was dead asleep
I was dead asleep
I was dead asleep
I was dead asleep
I was dead asleep
On the phone
Track Name: Stone Cold
Look in look out
The sunrise
On the brink of love again
Let me in so I can hold on
As long as I can
I would love the pleasure
I would love the chance
Would you care to walk out on the sand
And watch the sunrise
Why are you too cool
Such a stone cold fox a friend
Don't you know I'm into you
Don't you understand
I just want to watch the sunrise
And to hold your hand
Don't you know I'm into you
Don't you understand
Why you gotta be so stone cold
Colder harder
Hold her tighter
Throw her to the water
Watch the sunrise
Watch the sunrise
Watch the sunrise
Til tomorrow
Track Name: Fine Girl
Fine girl
Fine girl
You're so fine girl
Fine girl
I don't want to bother you anymore
So I'll go
You can do whatever you want
You don't need my heart anymore
You know I still needed yours
I know
And that's fine girl
Fine girl
Fine girl
Fine girl
But I know
You'll find something
That really makes you happy
I could never make that happen
Everybody knows I tried
And you know
You can call me on the phone
If you ever feel alone
You need a shoulder
For crying
It's mine
And that's fine girl
Fine girl
Quit your crying girl
You're fine
Track Name: Joanna
Blue hair, house party
And you could see so far
Wondering why you're talking to me
Let's go find your car

Talk to anyone around
With all the floating sounds
Look me in the eye
I know that I could die

You're on my mind
I know your life
You think that I am a waste of time
Come find my love
When you can walk
Don't try to crawl
Just run back to me

Buy me a drink
Pretend that I'm fun to be
Dance all night long
Sing the words to the song

Hand on my shoulder
Give me the signal yea
Lips come together
Don't make the night so dull

You're on my mind
I know your life
You think that I am a waste of time
Come find my love
When you can walk
Don't try to crawl
Just run back to me
Track Name: Moment In Time
I'm alone
I understand
There was this time
That had to end
But I'm in love
I know it's unrequited
No I'm not dumb
But I can try to fight it
But my back's against the wall
I'm pacing back and forth all up and down the hall
Cause you don't fall for me
I tried to salvage what I could
Of a life that I'd already loved and left behind
But you're still on my mind
Aw honey all the time
Baby I wrote you a letter
But you didn't get it
Cause I didn't send it
You would have set it in fire
If I would have tried
I should have sent you a lighter
But in light of these letters
I should have known better
I'm only a writer
And you are the words
I'm just a moment in time
I'm on the wall
But I don't believe in clocks at all
And this won't end
Until we take a stand
And fall
Track Name: Vacation
Vacation
The waves
The bayside in the night
And oh won't you move
Your feet
With me
Tonight
The sky
There's a familiar sound
Racing through the town tonight
The candles burn themselves down
Just to offer up some light
The scent of your perfume
Overcomes the smell of sweat
The dew in the air sticks to our skin
And makes our clothes feel wet
And I just want you to move around
And dance with me
No I don't want you to stand there
Just move your feet
And I wanna rock with you
Side to side of o the beat
Why else would we come here
Why else would we stay
Why else would we come out here
Just to waste the night away
Vacation
The waves
The bayside in the night
And oh won't you move
Your feet
With me
Tonight
The sky
