Track Name: Getaway Driver
All my life, I’m the getaway driver
I put the pedal to the metal, I’m the lone survivor
Seems I’ve always had a need for speed
When trouble comes along, just follow my lead
‘Cause all my life, I’m the getaway driver

All my life, I’m a refugee fleeing
Never can believe all the danger I’m seeing
The pressure all around is wearing me thin
I see my own shadow, jump out of my skin
‘Cause all my life, I’m a refugee fleeing

I can never get in too deep
Trying to hang onto feelings that I can’t keep
I know living’s what life’s all about
But I’m the getaway driver and I’m getting out

I was born with my little legs leading
All upside down with no chance of retreating
Scared of a life full of pain and regret
So I set off running every chance that I get
‘Cause I was born with my little legs leading

All my life, I’m the getaway driver
I put the pedal to the metal, I’m the lone survivor
Probably gonna go out all safe and sound
With nobody left to lay me in the ground
‘Cause all my life, I’m the getaway driver
All my life, I’m the getaway driver
All my life, I’m the getaway driver
Track Name: Waiting for the Fall
Where’d the rain go? Seems like it’s been pouring for years
How can I adjust, with nothing left to wash away my fears?
There ain’t a cloud in the sky, and all the birds are singing your name
Let me out, I’m trying to shake the past, ‘cause I’m so tired of going down in flames

After all my mistakes, it’s hard to believe anymore
And I want to go all in, but I want to know if you’re worth fighting for?
Though the truth, it can sting, open up and let me hear it all
‘Cause it feels like summer in my heart, and I’m waiting for the fall

Something about the way you’re swaying takes me back out on the sand
The breezes and tides open wide and take me out past where I can stand
But at the end of it all, she always leaves me waiting there
How was I to know that the past would haunt me so, I’m left completely unprepared

After all my mistakes, it’s hard to believe anymore
When I look into your eyes, all I see are those that came before
And everywhere I turn, I still see the writing on the wall
‘Cause it feels like summer in my heart, and I’m waiting for the fall

After all my mistakes, it’s hard to believe anymore
And I want to go all in, but I want to know, are you worth fighting for?
Though the truth, it can sting, open up and let me hear it all
‘Cause it feels like summer in my heart
I could let it end before it even starts
When it feels like summer in my heart, I’m waiting for the fall
Track Name: Game Over
I hate being wrong, but I’ll take the hit on this one
I should have known all along, there were signs but I missed one
Every worry that holds me in is wondering how I let her win
Game over, game over, I give up

I fumble around, getting ready for defeat
I don’t make a sound, until I faceplant at her feet
I know she’s not even my type, but she knows how to fish and I know how to bite
So game over, I shouldn’t even say goodnight

This river, it ain’t wide enough
Those city lights aren’t bright enough
To drown her out, Brooklyn, I’m so ashamed
So I drive and drive ‘til I can say with no disdain
That I was wrong about her, I was wrong about her
Game over

I’ll take the wheel like I couldn’t take control
I can’t conceal where she left this gaping hole
I’ll look down when the locals start to stare
In some other town, maybe no one else will care
That it’s game over
Track Name: Killin' It in California
She said she wants me there forever
She couldn’t keep her hands off of me, no
But tonight she can’t reach out through the phone lines
And even if she could, I wouldn’t feel her touch through my frostbite

I’d fight for what I want if I knew just what it was
And I’d say I should be hopeful, but I don’t know what good it does
I’m trying to say I love you but there’s icicles on my breath
Cause now she’s killing it in California and I’m in New York freezing to death

I went out to buy her flowers
But there ain’t no color roses that say “I have no stones”
And I’m always worried about where I’m going
But my girl just packed her bags and said “Nice to know you”

And I’d fight for what I want if I knew just what it was
And I’d say I should be hopeful, but I don’t know what good it does
I’m trying to say I love you but there’s icicles on my breath
Cause now she’s killing it in California and I’m in New York freezing to death
She’s killing it in California and I’m freezing to death

She says, “Everybody likes you, but nobody loves you”
She’s getting so much love these days
Is that her on a billboard over the BQE
Laughing at how little of my heart I gave

And I’d fight for what I want if I knew just what it was
And I’d say I should be hopeful, but I don’t know what good it does
I’m trying to say I love you but there’s icicles on my breath
Cause she’s killing it in California and I’m freezing to death
She’s killing it in California and I’m in New York freezing to death
She’s killing it in California and I’m in New York freezing to death
Track Name: One of These Days
Right about now, this city gets so loud
But it’s just this apparition; she’d drown out any crowd
She’s pushing all my memories right in my line of sight
And tossing little taunts my way each and every night

The past is like a parasite, my body’s just the host
And I can’t see nothing but this world full of ghosts
I can’t stop thinking about the way she put me down
She said, “I tried to love you, now just get the hell out of town”

She says, “One of these days, you’ll be free of me
“You’re gonna hear my name and let it float away
“One of these days, you’re gonna get to bury me, but not today”

I guess she was never all she was cracked up to be
But I can’t erase the echo that I’m seeing in front of me
I’m shouting at the walls for not being real enough
Cause my defenses are broken down, I’ve never had it so rough

She says, “One of these days, you’ll be free of me
“You’re gonna hear my name and let it float away
“One of these days, you’re gonna get to bury me, but not today”
Track Name: Reach Out for That Rope
Looking way back when I could dream
Anything seemed possible, but I grew into some machine
With gears and bolts for brains, those dreams went down the drain

If it all made perfect sense
Then we’d all be crowing about our happiness
I guess it takes a little work to erase away the hurt

Oh, I can’t lose hope
Oh, but I feel like a fool when I reach out for that rope

I’m just a mass of nerves and bones
Brittle as I break apart from every stick and every stone
But all these cracks will fade, and I won’t be so afraid

I can see it all laid out before me
Scattered out like fragments of some optimistic morning
I can’t make my peace with it, and I can’t make the pieces fit

Oh, it’s not so hard
Oh, but I can’t win the game if I give up before it even starts

I’ve got my back against the wall
But I can feel it back me up as I brace myself to accept it all
I’ll gather up my hope, and reach out for that rope
Track Name: Everything Is as It Seems
Everything is obvious
You know what it means
Don’t try to read between the lines
Cause everything is as it seems

I go walking out my door
Always looking around for more
Some brighter light or better time
But she says that I’m doing fine

She asks, “Why all this discontent?
We all dream to some extent
But you go and overanalyze
Just sit back and be surprised”

She says everything is obvious
You know what it means
Don’t try to read between the lines
Cause everything is as it seems

There’s a church she goes to pray
But I tend to stay away
If there’s a god, he must be proud
But he can’t see much from on that cloud

The details, they get lost on him
But me, I tend to focus in
Of all the powers that he’s got
Simplicity is the one I want

He’d tell me everything is obvious
You know what it means
Don’t try to read between the lines
Cause everything is as it seems

I hope that I’m the one for her
I know that she believes it
She says that she’s got my back
She says, “Honey, just relax”

“There’s nothing here that you can’t see
All it is, is you and me”
And I’ll listen to her from here on out
Cause that’s what love is all about

Now I know everything is obvious
You know what it means
Don’t try to read between the lines
Cause everything is as it seems
Track Name: So Long, So Long
I’d wish you luck, but you don’t need it
Always coming out on top
You look like nothing’s ever hard but it ain’t easy
To say so long, so long, so long

I’d wish you safe travels
But you’ve always been a reckless one
If I ever went charging in like you, I’d come out bloody
So I guess it’s so long, so long

I never thought I could make it on my own
But you seem pretty confident in me
Confident enough to leave me all alone, singing so long, so long

I’d wish you strong winds on your journey
But you’re the fastest one around
I keep lagging in the distance, now you’re kicking up dust
So long, so long

I’d wish you happiness, but you always find it
That’s why you’ve got to go
If somewhere else can make you happy, then I’ll send you off with
“So long, so long, so long”
So long, so long, so long
So long, so long
Track Name: Flawless Diamond
All I have is overkill, don’t you lead me over the side
Maybe I’m a loser, but I hope that you can see that I tried
I gave you every part of my love
But I can see now, I was always gonna be the one before
Before he came along

Baby, there’s no magic, there’s no miracles or wishing stars
But I’d sell my soul for another love that’s just a little like ours
I can’t believe that you’re gone
But I know he’s the only one who gets to sleep beside you every night
But hey, I can dream

Oh my darling, how can you love him this way?
I was here to stay, but you’ve run away, my flawless diamond
You found your Mr. Perfect now

Looking at the two of you, I want to dig my head in the sand
I tell myself if I can make it through this, I’ll be a better man
I was so sure about you
But you were out there looking for a better one, you found him now
And I’m out to dry

Oh my darling, how can you love him this way?
I was here to stay, but you’ve run away, my flawless diamond
You found your Mr. Perfect now

Oh my darling, how can you love him this way?
I was here to stay, but you’ve run away, my flawless diamond
You found your Mr. Perfect
Track Name: (I Could) Leave It All Behind
Broken down, but I don’t need to be ashamed
Lonely days will keep on coming ‘til I make a change

Is this my home? It’s time I tried to settle in
It’s hard to know just where I end and all these roads begin

I don’t want to be in the way
I don’t want to be in the light
Maybe if I run away
I could leave it all behind
I could leave it all behind

If I had wings, I wouldn’t need a helping hand
But when I’d fly, I’d still need a place where I could land

I don’t want to be in the way
I don’t want to be in the light
Maybe if I run away
I could leave it all behind
I could leave it all behind

I don’t want to be in the way
I don’t want to be in the light
Maybe if I run away
I could leave it all behind
I could leave it all behind
I could leave it all behind
Track Name: It's All Gone Now
I’ll be the first one to tell you, I’m not working hard enough
See, I can tell you want to fight for love, but I don’t think it’s love
You see me going through the motions, as if I didn’t give a damn
You think you’ve got me figured out so well, but that’s not who I am

Did we ever have a reason to believe?
If we ever shared a thing, it’s all gone now, it’s all gone

I’ll try to fly up to heaven, ‘cause I’m not bad enough for hell
If you could only see my fear, but it’s so deep down that you can’t even tell
So go and lay on the guilt trip, I bought my tickets in advance
I wish I could’ve been a saint, but I can see that we don’t stand a chance

Are you trying to start a fire without a light?
If your heart was ever mine, it’s all gone now, it’s all gone

I’d be the last one beside you if we ever lost the stars above
But girl, this ain’t no end of days, no, not close, and hell no this ain’t love
I’ll be the first one to tell you that all of the fault is mine
‘Cause I’m the one who opened up my eyes and recognized it’s time
