Track Name: You Both Know
It's cool that you ghosted me
But aren't you supposed to be
Leaving my property
Instead of watching me grieve?

I'm working hard to be someone
Trying to take my mind off what you've done
Strawberry jam spread on a whole wheat bun
Get that Vitamin C and that xanthan gum
(Xanthan gum)

It's cool that you ghosted me
But this jealousy is controlling me
And I'm about to throw it all away

Okay, I don't know what you want
We can do this in down back or do it up front
Your aunties and uncles filming these stunts
I want your love
You want another month
And you know what I want

You both know
You both know
I want to
Love you

You both know
You both know
I want to
Love you

Can't rain every year
Climate change is real
It takes time

You both know
You both know
I want to

Another summer without you
Sweating for nothing
Sweating for
The lodge we've earned
With cuts and sunburns

It's cool that you forgot about
The things that we talked about
Do you even recall where I lived
When I used to stay down south?

(Down south)

You both know
You both know
I want to
Love you

You both know
You both know
I want to
Love you

Can't rain every year
Climate change is real
It takes time

You both know
You both know
I want to

Could I see that smile?
Pearly whites
It be quite a while
'Til next time
There were two sides to you
And I loved them both
It be quite a while

You both know
You both know
I want to
Love you

You both know
You both know
I want to
Love you

Can't rain every year
Climate change is real
It takes time

You both know
You both know
I want to

Love you
Love you
Love you
Love you
Track Name: This Sucks
I want to hear
The things you've never said
I know you won't regret confiding
What's been hiding
In that heart of yours
That heart of yours

This sucks
(This sucks)
The whole point of this movie
Was for us to end up grooving
Together
But whatever

This sucks
(This sucks)
How can we have a happy ending
If our bodies are not spending
Forever
Together?

I've been losing weight and working late
Trying to be the person who you're dying to date
Crying tears and cursing as I celebrate
An endless stream of days where the role I play
Is a loser
(A loser)
In this heart of yours
This heart of yours

This sucks
(This sucks)
The whole point of this movie
Was for us to end up grooving
Together
But whatever

This sucks
(This sucks)
How can we have a happy ending
If our bodies are not spending
Forever
Together?

"For Christ's sake,
Get a hold of yourself
A hold of yourself
For me"
Well, I'll try to get good
But I can't be anything I'm not
Who knew these grits would be so damn hard?

This sucks
(This sucks)
The whole point of this movie
Was for us to end up grooving
Together
But whatever

This sucks
(This sucks)
How can we have a happy ending
If our bodies are not spending
Forever
Together?

This sucks
(This sucks)
The whole point of this movie
Was for us to end up grooving
Together
But whatever

This sucks
(This sucks)
How can we have a happy ending
If our bodies are not spending
Forever
Together?
Track Name: Come Back
Close my eyes
And wake me when it's done
Don't watch me cry
It's fine, I just need time alone

Mend my heart
And tell me lies, baby
(Oh, baby)
Say, "Maybe
We'll meet again"
Life is hard
And you were always my favorite
(My favorite)
Say, baby
Come back my friend

All your bags
Are packed and ready to ship
Call every little now and then
Tell me about your trips

Mend my heart
And tell me lies, baby
(Oh, baby)
Say, "Maybe
We'll meet again"
Life is hard
And you were always my favorite
(My favorite)
Say, baby
Come back my friend

(Was I worth it?)
I need to know
Did I cross your mind?
(Was I worth it?)
I think so
We will see in time

Mend my heart
And tell me lies, baby
(Oh, baby)
Say, "Maybe
We'll meet again"
(We'll meet again)
Life is hard
And you were always my favorite
(My favorite)
Say, baby
Come back my friend
(Come back my friend)
Track Name: Hole
Left on read
Just like I knew you would
You think I'm no good
I feel dead
and look like it, too
Why do I bother with you?
Maybe there's a way
I could get you back, back, back
If I worked at Sears
I would cut you slack, slack, slack

There's a hole in my heart
You've left
Inside
There's a hole in my heart
You've left
Inside
It's so cold and so dark
My tears
Won't hide
There's a hole in my heart
You've left
Inside

For a second it was looking bleak
Two hundred apple seeds
But then I saw you just the other week
You offered me a seat

There's a hole in my heart
You've left
Inside
There's a hole in my heart
You've left
Inside
It's so cold and so dark
My tears
Won't hide
There's a hole in my heart
You've left
Inside

There's a hole in my heart
You've left
Inside
There's a hole in my heart
You've left
Inside
It's so cold and so dark
My tears
Won't hide
There's a hole in my heart
You've left
Inside
Track Name: Inside You
When will I be good
Good enough to live
Inside you?

I'm moving towards death
Instead of moving down there
Inside you

I've tried so hard
To be
(I've tried so hard)
Another face on your
Busy streets

Yeah, maybe I could
Get it all figured out
Inside you

I'd strip it all off
Those fears and self-doubts
Inside you

I've tried so hard
To be
(I've tried so hard)
Another face on your
Busy streets

I don't care about the rat race
I don't care about the lies they say, okay?
I don't care about the death rate
I just want to live that high life in LA

I've tried so hard
To be
(I've tried so hard)
Another face on your
Busy streets

When will I be good
Good enough to live
Inside you?

I'm moving towards death
Instead of moving down there
Inside you
Track Name: Again
Feet in the air
Ears to the ground
It doesn't have to end like this
So, I guess it won't end like this

I taught you drive
You taught me how to cry
Coming to complete stops
Getting talks from lonely cops

Cooking dinner at your place
Wiping tears off of your face
I know
That's in the past

But life moves pretty fast
So, I guess I'll take my chance and ask

Girl
I want to lay you down
Again
Oh, girl
I want to lay you down
Again

Girl
I want to lay you down
Again
Oh, girl
I want to lay you down
Again

Head in the sand
Head in the clouds
I really want to try once more
Maybe we could try once more

Wouldn't be so rough this time
No other lovers this time
So, I'll drop my line
So, I'll drop my line

Girl
I want to lay you down
Again
Oh, girl
I want to lay you down
Again

Girl
I want to lay you down
Again
Oh, girl
I want to lay you down
Again

(For one more time
We can compare)

Girl
I want to lay you down
Again
Oh, girl
I want to lay you down
Again

Girl
I want to lay you down
Again
Oh, girl
I want to lay you down
Again
Track Name: Almost Paradise
All I want is a little house
Over land and sea
Living without care
Where I'm meant to be

You can stop by if you like
When your day is through
It's almost paradise
It's only missing you

You can stop by if you like
When your day is through
It's almost paradise
It's only missing you
Track Name: Grind
Oh, let me grind on you
'Cause that body is smoking
And there's nothing I'd rather do
Than grind on you
You might think that I'm joking
But it's the truth

Oh, let me grind on you
'Cause that body is smoking
And there's nothing I'd rather do
Than grind on you
You might think that I'm joking
But it's the truth

Let me tell you
My whole deal
Each moment spent with you
Is a highlight reel

I've seen you
I've felt you
I've touched your skin
But I'm not the one
That you want to be with

This is not typical
It feels new
I know you feel the same way too

It's not just physical
I want this
You're my wish, so let's kiss

Oh, let me grind on you
'Cause that body is smoking
And there's nothing I'd rather do
Than grind on you
You might think that I'm joking
But it's the truth

Oh, let me grind on you
'Cause that body is smoking
And there's nothing I'd rather do
Than grind on you
You might think that I'm joking
But it's the truth

Last call
It's your call
Just tell me now
These feelings I feel
Are just so damn loud

I've been
Dark for
Quite a while
But I feel reborn
From the sight of your smile

Your smile
That sight
Oh, yeah
Alright

Oh, let me grind on you
'Cause that body is smoking
And there's nothing I'd rather do
Than grind on you
You might think that I'm joking
But it's the truth

Oh, let me grind on you
'Cause that body is smoking
And there's nothing I'd rather do
Than grind on you
You might think that I'm joking
But it's the truth

Here in your car
I feel the grind
I feel the grind

I know it's hard
But give it time
But give it time

Here in your car
I feel the grind
I feel the grind

I know it's hard
But give it time
But give it time
Track Name: Te Quiero
Te quiero, te quiero
Te quiero en my vida
Te quiero, te quiero
Te quiero en my vida

Te quiero tan mal que, duele
Estoy perdiendo mi mente
Traes la calma con tu alma
Sonrió constantemente

Te quiero, ¿quieres
Estar conmigo?

Algún día voy hacer
Suficiente para ti
Algún día voy hacer
Suficiente para ti
(Para ti)

Te quiero, te quiero
Te quiero en my vida
Te quiero, te quiero
Te quiero en my vida

Te quiero tan mal que, duele
Estoy perdiendo mi mente
Traes la calma con tu alma
Sonrió constantemente

Te quiero, ¿quieres
Estar conmigo?
Track Name: Keep Going
Was that good?
(The first)
(Until here)
Until where?
(Here)
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Do you want to listen to it
Or should we just keep going?
(Keep going)
Okay
You don't want to listen to it
Okay
(Keep going)
What do you mean
Keep going?
(Keep going)
Okay, we're going to keep going
(Okay)
Track Name: Rare
Please
Can't you forgive me?
I feel
Like you're pitting my soul

And I'll leave
If you need that
Don't forget
All the sweet plaid love we had

People want to say they all for good
Me, I just want "I, me, mine"
I hit up your line every time I'm shook

I hate to say it
I hate to say it

I'm such a fool
(Such a fool)
Now I've really gone and lost you
Now I've gone and lost you
What do you do?
(Do you do?)
There was something rare about you
Something rare about you

Dang
I'm feeling murdered
Trying to speak
But nothing's working on you

I couldn't replace you even if I tried
And now I've swallowed all my pride
What can I do to make it up to you?

I hate to say it
I hate to say it

I'm such a fool
(Such a fool)
Now I've really gone and lost you
Now I've gone and lost you
What do you do?
(Do you do?)
There was something rare about you
Something rare about you

In another life, I'll find you
It's within our rights to try to
Day gives way to night, but in time
Night becomes the day

I'm such a fool
(Such a fool)
Now I've really gone and lost you
Now I've gone and lost you
What do you do?
(Do you do?)
There was something rare about you
Something rare about you
Track Name: Thank You
You're still around, you're missing something
There's a void between your ribs
I shaved my skin off just to feel you
Cold steel lips, the sharpest kiss

I'm your favorite T.V. show
I turn you on when I turn away
I could never tell you what I've done
So, I'll just say

Thanks for making me want to end it all
(Thank you, thank you)
Hope you're happy and I hope you had a ball
(Thank you, thank you)
Thanks for making me want to end it all
(Thank you, thank you)
Hope you're happy and I hope you had a ball
(Thank you, thank you)

It's been a year and we've gone nowhere
You're at sea, but I'm stuck at bay
I'm so sick of this feeling
I hate my phone, I hate my face

Thanks for making me want to end it all
(Thank you, thank you)
Hope you're happy and I hope you had a ball
(Thank you, thank you)
Thanks for making me want to end it all
(Thank you, thank you)
Hope you're happy and I hope you had a ball
(Thank you, thank you)

I can hear those voices calling my name
They won't sleep 'til they have me
I'll make my choice and rest in my grave
Where I'll go, God only knows

Thanks for making me want to end it all
(Thank you, thank you)
Hope you're happy and I hope you had a ball
(Thank you, thank you)
Thanks for making me want to end it all
(Thank you, thank you)
Hope you're happy and I hope you had a ball
(Thank you, thank you)
Track Name: Again (Reprise)
There are moments uniquely constructed
From the beginning until the end
A mortal sunrise, an eternal sunset
The field beyond the fence

Infinite memories of what one did
Paid with tears and broken grins
Only uttered once in time
And never to be seen again

We are within the belly of the dream
And the dream is dying
