Track Name: Answering Machine
The moment that I write this song
It's like admitting you're gone
And that you don't belong to me anymore

In a single moment it seems
My plans have exploded at the seams
Now that I don't belong to you anymore

With each line I guess I'll start to heal
But I don't wanna write this song
Not ready to move on from a pain whose wholeness I am just starting to feel

From the moment that you told me
Up in your bed in your room that morning
A bed that was mine too for a time, for and from those moments I'm still mourning

And as I get further on, through this song, line by line
I cry a little bit less each time
Slowly accepting the fact that you're no longer mine

And I don't believe you when you say
That you don't love me anymore
And I can't believe that you'd just ride away
Leaving me on your front lawn alone and crying
And I know I know I know I know I know I know I know

That I have to let you go
But I'm not ready,
Not ready to let you go
If you want to I can't stop you
But baby
Please don't go

I'm not exactly doing fine
But i'm much better than I thought I'd be
Maybe I learned how to hide my emotions from you

You can be cold and hard-lined
You bottle up everything inside
So many bottles baby you better not fall over

But you were so sweet and kind
Your arms are still open wide
You're still holding my hand
You're still by my side

And I can't do this, I can't do it
I think you still love me,
I don't believe you, I won't believe you but then you tell me that you wanna be with someone new

And while I'm on about this,
Let me apologise for that last stolen kiss
You were so drunk but it was too good to miss

Baby, no wait,
I can't call you that anymore
At least I can still call you that's better than not seeing you at all maybe

You're so stubborn I know I can't push you
But I don't want to lose you
Dude, let me tell you, friends aren't supposed to get as friendly as you do

And I don't believe you when you say
That you don't love me anymore
And I can't believe that you'd just ride away
Leaving me on your front lawn alone and crying
And I know I know I know I know I know I know I know

That I have to let you go
But I'm not ready,
Not ready to let you go
If you want to I can't stop you
But baby
Please don't go

The moment that I write this song
It means it's all gone wrong
The moment has gone

The moment, the moment has passed
I thought it would last
I wish I'd learned how to write about happiness while I still had the chance

And as I get further on, through this song, line by line
I cry a little bit less each time
Slowly accepting the fact that you're no longer mine

And I don't believe you when you say
That you don't love me anymore
And I can't believe that you'd just ride away
Leaving me on your front lawn alone and crying
And I know I know I know I know I know I know know
Yeah I know I know I know I know I know I know I noticed that

While you left me somehow
You're still holding my hand
You're still dancing with me
And it helps to think that we

Still have things to laugh and skip about
Thank you for giving me something so beautiful
It hurts this much to live without
Baby
Please don't go
Track Name: Holes
I have holes in me and if you look carefully enough you'll see my scars
They take forever to heal coz everytime that I see you it starts to peel away
And every word that you should say but don't is just killing me
This pain it burns then scars then peels from a feeling that you could never feel
From a feeling you could never feel

And I,
I've got nothing left to write about anymore
I've got nothing left to live for
Now that all's been said and done
Now that you're gone, now that you're gone
Now that you're gone
You're gone for good

In 5 years time you'll be on my mind I know
I have a slight problem with letting go
But you were something that I expected to have my whole life
You just got up to leave and now my heart is like a sieve
Coz all the memories of you that just won't go
Are burning little holes all over my body

And I,
I've got nothing left to write about anymore
I've got nothing left to live for
Now that all's been said and done
Now that you're gone, now that you're gone
Now that you're gone
You're gone for good

I never wanted anything more than just to be there for you
I never thought that it would end like this thought it would always be us two
I never asked for anything more than just for you to stay
I never dreamed that something that meant so much could ever end up this way, I'm so in pain

I've moved on and on and on and on and on
But I've never let go of this love
Track Name: Leaving Tomorrow
I'm leaving tomorrow haven't you heard
But I'm still waiting to hear a word from you
I'm leaving tomorrow to see the world
But I still wanted to share my world with you

I know we're not always around enough to show we care
But when it's important we both know we'll be there
But this time it looks like you're not gonna show
I hope you come before I go

I'm leaving tomorrow and you haven't said goodbye
I'll wait a bit longer coz I'm still hoping you'll try
I'm leaving tomorrow I'm not gonna remind you again
It's up to you, it's up to you now
To see me before the end

Actually I'm quite sick of always looking over my shoulder
To see if you are following behind
I've had enough; don't think you're someone I still want to know
If you don't come before I go

Eventually you start to see that words don't mean a thing
Especially when someone can't get off their ass to bring
A smile to your face and tell you they have a place for you
In their heart for you

I'm leaving tomorrow haven't you heard
But I'm still waiting to hear a word from you
I'm leaving tomorrow to see the world
But I still wanted to share my world with you

I know we're not always around enough to show we care
But when it's important we both know i'll be there
But this time it looks like you're not gonna show
Coz you're not here and now I have to go
Track Name: Leigh's Song
Sometimes I am even asking myself, 'Are we?
Are we really allowed to do this?
Are we really allowed to have so much fun?'

I'm 21 and I'm still waiting for Mum
To come running into the room yelling, 'Put your panties back on love'

We can stay in all day
And begin to play
I can show you the way to my door
We can play all day and then you go and touch me
In a way that I've never been touched before

It's so easy even though I got mad at you last week
It's so easy because with you I can speak about anything

In your room you gave me some space for my clothes
I put in my heart and now I call you home

You're nice to my family and you didn't mind
When Tyrone chewed through your 75 dollar headphones
That one time

I see you in the morning
I see you in the afternoon
I see you at night but it seems to end so soon
I wish the night was longer so that I could spend more of my time
Lying here with you

It's so easy even though I got mad at you this week
It's so easy because with you I can speak about anything

Now I have moved in back home with my parents
Your brother is sick of it, can only come round 2 days a week

I miss you, I miss you being my home and the way you make me feel
Whenever we are alone.

And I know I shouldn't be upset
With only seeing you 2 days a week
But I'm going crazy only getting some 2 days a week
I wish the night was longer so that I could spend more of my time
Lying here with you
Track Name: Track 47
How is fair that you don't care enough to see if I'm ok?
How is fair that you don't care enough to say sorry?
But I won't despair coz I know in some part of your heart
The memory of us will always be there

Do you know how it feels to mean nothing to someone who is the basis of your every thought and dream, it's harder than it seems

God I'm so sick of this obsession
46 songs, this'll be 47
And all of these songs through all of these years
Have done nothing to take away my tears
They've done nothing to make you remember
And nothing to help me forget

When I die I hope that you grieve for me
Like I grieved for you, I hope that you bleed for me too
When I die I hope you can't sleep because of me
Like I could never sleep because of you

And can't you hear?
I'm singing bout the same damn thing
Can't you hear?
I'm singing bout the same damn thing
Can't you hear?
Or are you as sick of hearing about him as I am?
You can't hear
These voices in my head
Reminding me of his name with every single breathe

I hope they play this song everywhere
Till you can't get me out of your head
Track Name: My Mouth
I'm so unbelievably angry
It's an old line but, 'How could you do this to me?'
For 2 years we were as close as friends and family
And then randomly you decide to leave

It seems like it's not enough for you just to break my heart
You also wanna break my spirit
Keep playing these stupid games like I'm still in it with a chance to win you back

And see I thought you were different from all the rest
But now I see that it was only that you were the best so far
Not such a proud title to possess thus far, might I add.

See just like them you've turned something meaningful
Into something shit
But you still hold my hand and play with my hair
But you won't kiss my mouth
It's like you're scared of it

Is there something wrong with my mouth?
Yeah, yeah wrong with my mouth?

And tumbling from my lips are melodies of my truths
I won't hold back from you
I'm saying what I have to say if only to
Get this out of my heart to some other place on this page

You're right to be afraid, I should probably come with a warning
To heal my sores through these songs
My mouth is gonna have to document this pain you have caused

See I can hold my tongue back from causing pain or abuse
If I feel there is no use
But I gotta say It's time to be a man and stick with what you planned
Don't wanna hear later that you regret what you'll lose
That won't be an excuse

Coz if it's not my words you're afraid of, but my love, then you are a fool
Though the taste of you may linger on my lips and my teeth
I can't wait for you forever

Is there something wrong with my mouth?
Yeah, yeah wrong with my mouth?

Tumbling from your lips are words that are
Pushing away everyone that you love
Pushing away every single thing that you love

Coz you're scared that one day it will all get old
But we all get old one day
Maybe one day when you're older
You'd wish you'd done things in a different way

Coz you write things up to experience
I write them down with love
A tale by a guitar string pulls my heart strings
In a way I'm not afraid of

When a song a starts to mean something
You'll say it's been overplayed
But you are just afraid
You are just afraid

Is there something wrong with my mouth?
Yeah, yeah wrong with my mouth?
