Track Name: Post-Romance
I guess it’s all my fault
I didn’t make it clear that what I fear is
Us falling apart
You’re calling me out on my own bluff (it’s always why)
I didn’t mean to break your heart (it’s always why)
But excuse after excuse sounds kinda like a loop, what
I’m trying to say…is that I’m better off this way, way

Well I can’t take it, control or fake it
I’ll give you my heart and you can’t break it
I know what you said and what I did is what I mean
And nothing you can say will change a thing, well

Cuz I know you
And you’re sad about it (sad about it)
But I have feelings too
And I’m sad about it (mad about it)
It was obvious, you had no clue
I was mad about it, mad at you
You never knew…well I did too

It must be all my fault
I’ve been in this place before and I’ve had enough
This time it’s not the same
This time it’s getting late
We’re not so different, you and I
But when you put two together why even try
It’s always why
Am I always the only one, whoever tries
Except the feeling’s not the same

I’m feeling alive, misunderstood and deprived
Going out every night, gunna live my new life
Better off without you, now that I’ve taken a stand
And no other woman will be holding this hand

Cuz I know you
And you’re sad about it (sad about it)
But I have feelings too
And I’m sad about it (mad about it)
It was obvious, you had no clue
I was mad about it, mad at you
You never knew…well I did too

Cuz I know you
And you’re sad about it (sad about it)
But I have feelings too
And I’m sad about it (mad about it)
It was obvious, you had no clue
I was mad about it, mad at you
You never knew…well I did too

Well I did too
Well I did too
Well I did too
Track Name: My Girl
My girl she always gets the best of me
But she won’t
And if she wants to, well she could take the rest of me
But she don’t

She had it all but she wanted more (so sad)
Guess I was more than she bargained for (well too bad)
Well I’m sorry I can’t sympathize
And I won’t apologize
What’s past is done, more ammo in my gun
So don’t even try

My girl she always gets the best of me
But she won’t
And if she wants to, well she could take the rest of me
But she don’t
She flaunts it
Cuz she’s got it
Well she don’t got me, so she don’t got it all
I’m getting static and having trouble getting through
So goodbye, I’m hanging up on you
Cuz my minutes are almost through

She said she don’t love me anymore (oh well)
And she said she’s got her reasons for (well do tell)
But when I look into those eyes
Darling it’s no surprise
That I gave in, I always let you win
But no, not this time

My girl she always gets the best of me
But she won’t
And if she wants to, well she could take the rest of me
But she don’t
Well she’s got it
So she flaunts it
When she looked at me, she said she wants it now
Well I’m sorry but I’ve got better things to do
Than to spend all of my time on you

My girl she always got the best of me
My girl she never took the rest of me
My girl she always got the best of me
My girl she never took the rest of me

If she wants it
Then she’s got it
Well she don’t got me, so she don’t got it all
You’re sorry, hell I’m sorry too
Sorry that I ever talked to you

My girl she always gets the best of me
My girl she always gets the best of me
If she wants it…(she’s got it)
Then she’s got it…(so she flaunts it)
Well she don’t got me, so she don’t got it all
You’re jealous, selfish, condescending too
And that’s why I’ll never be with you
Track Name: Maybe Tonight
All the kids are singing “Love Me Do”
Or something catchy, to the same effect
And I was thinking me and you
Could meet up later, with all due respect
To what’s-his-name
And don’t tell me he’s different from the rest
Cuz that’s insane…standing next to me
He’ll always be, just second best

So tell me what is it you’d miss
Oh I know it’s not his kiss
Told you darling I’ve had lots of practice
Could use some more, so why don’t we try it

But I know everybody’s,
Got a little voice inside their head
A friend who hides the truth
And tells you lies you’d rather hear instead
But I know you want me
The way you play with your hair
It only makes me aware that
His love is empty
Oh baby it’s barely there
So why don’t you tempt me

Maybe tonight
Woo hoo hoo, woo hoo hoo, woo hoo hoo
Maybe tonight
Woo hoo hoo, woo hoo hoo, woo hoo hoo

Now here we are again
Sitting in my car alone, underneath the night
It seems that I can’t win
So we’re heading into triple overtime
Now I’m on a break
Only one man to beat, but he knows I like to shoot up high
So I hesitate
Lord knows I don’t wanna be denied

So tell me what if I’m to miss
Oh would you run back to him
Probably should’ve done some target practice
It’s too late now, might as well try it

But I know everybody’s
Got a little voice inside their head
A friend who hides the truth
And tells you things you’d rather hear instead
Like I know you want me
The way you play with your hair
It only keeps me aware that
His love is empty
Oh baby it’s barely there
So why don’t you tempt me

I’m standing on your porch
Tossing rocks at your window
Begging you to come outside
He’s probably home by now
Either getting off or getting high
I only want you to myself
But you’re too weak to say goodbye
Baby you know you can’t fight it
Just take my hand and close your eyes

So tell me what is it you’ll miss
I know it’s not his kiss
I told you darling I’ve had lots of practice
Could use some more, so why don’t we try it

And doesn't everybody
Got a little voice inside their head
A friend who hides the truth
And tells you lies you’d rather hear instead
But I know you want me
The way you play with your hair
It only leaves me aware that
His love is empty
Oh baby it’s barely there
So why don’t you tempt me

Maybe tonight
Woo hoo hoo, woo hoo hoo, woo hoo hoo
Maybe tonight
Woo hoo hoo, woo hoo hoo, woo hoo hoo
Maybe tonight
Woo hoo hoo, woo hoo hoo, woo hoo hoo
Maybe tonight
Woo hoo hoo, woo hoo hoo, woo hoo hoo
So meet me tonight
Track Name: She's Coming Down
Well she’s…she’s coming down
Coming down
Faster than she did before
And she, she’ll hit the ground
If she comes down, anymore
Somebody catch her before she hits the floor

Well you said that you felt fine
But I know that was last time
You’re not the same, when you give in
It’s true, true, true (if they only knew)
All those things you’ve done
Oh when your blood starts to run
Up to your head and out your nose
It’s drip, drip, drip (that’s how she goes)

Well I don’t owe you
If I don’t even know you
But I’m not one to lie
So baby I just can’t stand by

While she’s, she’s coming down
Coming down
Faster than she did before
And she, she’ll hit the ground
If she comes down, anymore
Better catch her before she hits the floor

Well now it’s getting dark
And I can’t tell where we’ve parked
Let’s leave the bar, said let’s go home
Right now, now, now (leave me alone)
Well I don’t wanna fight
Said honey, please no not tonight
Cuz downtown ain’t no place
For a girl like you, you, you (to be on her own)

Well I don’t owe you
Hell I don’t even know you
But I’m not one to lie
So baby I just can’t stand by

While she’s…she’s coming down
Coming down
Faster than she did before
And she, she’ll hit the ground
If she comes down, anymore
Better catch her before she hits the floor

Well she’s, she’s coming down
Coming down
Faster than she did before
And she, she’ll hit the ground
If she comes down, anymore
Somebody catch her before she hits the floor
Track Name: Stopgap
You know, I love
This wind in front
Of us, of us
I love us

You said, I said
I watch, you watch
Me staring at the people now
Lonely now, lonely now

I can’t pretend
To stay away
Right now I can’t
Pretend to say what I wanna say

You know
It won’t hurt so bad
It won’t hurt so bad
You know
And you know it hurts just fine

You know
It won’t hurt so bad
It won’t hurt so bad
You know
And you know it hurts just fine

I want to leave
Come here, shall we
Why can’t you stay
With me, leave with me

I want you now
You want me now
Right now, let’s meet
Let’s meet, right now

Come close, hold me
Wrap your arms around me
Come close, hold me
Hold me, hold me

You know
It won’t hurt so bad
It won’t hurt so bad
You know
And you know it hurts just fine

You know
It won’t hurt so bad
It won’t hurt so bad
You know
And you know it hurts just fine

And you know it hurts just
And you know it hurts just
And you know it hurts just fine
Track Name: Joanne
Jo-oh-oh-oanne
I’d like to help you understand
Oh that I think you’ve
Got better things to do
Than hang around with him

and Jo-oh-oh-oanne
Will you let me hold your hand
And please don’t pull away
Was all that I could say
Before she took command
You shake your long, blonde hair
But I’m already there
Your wish is my command

So just give me a sign if you’re ready to go
I can’t help it, yeah you’ve got me ready to fall
And if you feel the same, I’d really like to know
Joanne baby, please don’t tell me maybe or no
I can’t keep pretending that it’s true
Don’t wanna be friends at all I ever wanted was you
So pack your bags, we’ll run away right now
She’s coming down and she’s not stopping at all

Jo-oh-oh-oanne
Well I don’t think that I can stand
Now it’s nothing new
I’m here to rescue you
I’ll save you if I can

So let me be your Spider-Man
And I’ll do what no other can
I’ll slip in and I’ll crawl
Right up your bedroom wall
I’ve got you in my web
Now Mary Jane’s okay
But I can’t stay away
I need you so Joanne

So just give me a sign when you’re ready to go
I can’t help it, yeah you’ve got me ready to fall
And if you feel the same, I’d really like to know
Joanne baby, please don’t tell me maybe or no
I can’t keep pretending that it’s true
Don’t wanna be friends at all I ever wanted was you
So pack your bags, let’s run away right now
She’s coming down and she’s not stopping at all

No she’s not stopping at all
