Thank you to these amazingly kind people that I love so so so much.

Grace Graves - Album Art (She is so amazingly talented thank you Grace)

Madison Roche - Lyrics on track #5

Joel Todero - Listening to most of these songs (some of them over six months ago) and giving his opinion

Nathan Avila - He didn't really do anything I just like him

My Parents (Lisa & Larry) - Being nice to me and pretending that you don't hear me writing songs even though our walls are really thin

Thanks to the few people who have songs written about them on this album - I really don't like you and you're the reason I have trust issues

My Dogs Kirby and Lily - the only true inspirations for any love songs I have ever written

Track Name: Intro (Straight Ahead)
Been searching so long
Can't find my home
It's been gone for some time
Although I can give you my address
Track Name: Double Whammy
This is not what I asked for this is not what I wanted to see
This was such an ideal situation gone so wrong

So I float on down wondering if you're coming around
Anytime before I run this shit into the ground

And I, I still got a lot of time
to think about what made this relationship so bad
Probably cuz we're both sad

So I sit on the wrong side of the bed
Wondering who's in your room
I repeat this every single day
Hoping that I'll somehow find you

So I've given up and resigned myself to stay inside and pout
But it's alright, no one minds unless I raise my voice and shout

That I, I still got a lot of time
to think about what made this relationship so bad
Probably cuz we're both sad

What can I do to help you?
Save myself too?
There's no more options

So I float on down wondering if you're calling me down
Sometime tonight before I run us both into the ground

And I, I still got a lot of time
to think about what made this relationship so bad
Probably cuz we're both sad
Track Name: Junior's Lament
Haven't know you that long
Though I'd swear that it's been years
Can't control how I felt then
Trust me there will be no more tears

These are the days you'll remember

Have a good fucking time at college
Have a good fucking time with your friends
Can't look at you much longer
Though I'll try until the end

Have a good time without me
No I swear it won't hurt that bad
We both know I'm a liar
So let's both just pretend

And the days seem to pass by
so much slower than I recall
Maybe it's cuz I'm lonely
Maybe it's cuz you never call

These are the days you'll remember

Have a really good time at college
Have a really good time with your friends
Can't look at you much longer
Though I'll try until the end

Have a good time without me
No I swear it won't hurt that bad
We both know I'm a liar
So let's both just pretend

These are the days you'll remember
Please excuse me while I walk away
I don't think I could listen
To one more word you have to say
Track Name: 16 Candles
There's a fine line between loving me and knowing me
Have you crossed it yet?
Once you begin to fall that's when you'll realize,
there's no safety net

We'll sit on your kitchen floor at two am
You'll tell me how your parents forget
Your birthday every year
Like an 80's movie over and over again

There is nothing to talk about
Not since your old friend came around
You talk about last summer, it sounds pretty great
But I think that I'll go home now
Do you think that'd be okay?

I don't know what we are right now
Maybe we'll never be anything at all
But you will never know
What's it like to feel so small

There is nothing to talk about
Not since your new friend came to town
I am lost
You are found
Track Name: Au Revoir and Good Riddance
A hazy walk through heaven turned out to be hell.
"No strings attached" she said
And she meant it I could tell
Who knew how fast love could turn to hate

I love you I said that night that I couldn't breathe
"I'm sorry" she said
well what did that mean?
The phone rang and her voice through
"Let me get someone who cares for you"

You're the reason my heart and I
Don't keep in touch anymore.

Play it back now, listen to how I feel
What the hell was this? I thought it was real.
Ripping out these roots grown way too deep
Every night rusted memories won't let me sleep

Your smoke fills my lungs, and I feel the pink turn to black
The day you walked into my life I knew there was turning back

You're the reason my heart and I
Don't keep in touch anymore.
Track Name: MC Bad Idea
The fact is I don't think I've got a great way for me
I'm so tired of being the only one
She says she would be nice to have
And I love you

So I can be used?

The fact is you barked up the wrong tree
I'm so tired of being so pushed around
She's lonely but afraid to call
Because last time she did well you didn't pick up
Track Name: Ode to Lovers & Friends
I remember you saying you'd be the one to leave first
that you just had a feeling
But who'd have thought that you'd be right
All you said would ring true

But now it's time to say goodnight
And now it's time to let go

All of us look back to that day and try not to cry
But we are not sad
It's just so nostalgic to think of you
And how you were back then

But now it's time to turn off that light
And now it's time to let go

Full of sunshine, face of an angel
With a humor unheard of
Miss you a long time, but we'll see each other again

We could stay out late
Wake up early the very next day
Do it all over again

Day in the life
Don't make me say it
Take my promise
Try not to break it

Full of sunshine, face of an angel
Miss you a long time
I promise, you'll see her again
Track Name: No Choice
I'm sorry it's not easy to get love from me
Barely got enough for myself
But I'll do my best to send it out

I don't know how much it will take to get away from here

Don't know how much support I can give
Till I'm drawn and aching
and my heart is racing

You've got to learn how to fight
When your corners empty
When it's only you

And I can't tell when the road will run right into fiery hell

We had a good run but it's ending
Maybe I'd congratulate you if I wasn't so broken on the inside
Track Name: Self-Deprecating Theme Song
I have ruined countless friends with my constant need for validation
Trying to convince myself, it's not me it's you
But it's definitely me

With my tendencies to overuse to words like
"Dude" and "like" and "Oh My God!!!"
I'm just bitter and confused at the ripe age of 16
I have never felt connected to anyone except my dog named Lily

I should probably see someone about it
But I don't want to
So I'll just keep on writing these songs
As a way to complain to you
Track Name: Song That's About Being Completely Over It. No, Really!
You were mine
I was almost yours
I felt selfish

Was it fair?
To take up all your time
But you were there
And so was I

Bonded slowly over some asshole guy
You spoke low, so did I.

I saw you and you saw me
There's nothing else for this to be
No more chances means no more fights
I'm better off alone for tonight or forever

You're not mine
I was never yours
I am selfish

It's not fair to take up all your time
You're not there
Track Name: Outro (Operatic freaking ROAST)
DEAR PEOPLE WHO FUCKED ME OVER
YOU MAY THINK I AM SAD BUT I AM NOT
BECAUSE YOU ARE A BUTTHOLE
AND I DO NOT MISS YOU
MY DEAR FRIEND
WHO FUCKED ME OVER
I HOPE YOU LIVE
AN
AWFUL
LIFE!
