No matter how time will change it I will not forget No matter how time will change ... My brain's upset By all the things it can't remember This little girls eyes blend Into the soil around her While I refrain from blinking my own For fear the moment might end I see sadness in all this beauty I see beauty in everything But I daren't take a single photo home No matter how time will change it I will not forget No matter how time will change ... My lungs fill with smoke As I attempt to savor every scene Worlds away from the world I know There's a little boy locked in a soccer game And his mother is calling for him And making me try on all of her clothes I don't understand the words she says But I can hear in her overtones That she thinks there is nothing to be scared of here But it's just a matter of years Oh no matter how time will change it I will not forget I will not forget

Forgive me, I know you think I'm at my worst When I do as I've promised to And who cares who gets burnt or hurt Just so long as they have nice things to say to you Well it's nothing that's said It's nothing that's written Just strongly implied Words speak louder than actions Are you feeling left out? I keep throwing gifts away, souvenirs I've been keeping Memories of friends and better days that I clutch to my heart so tightly I think I might break them Dispose of it before it's suffocating Alright so yes, I have been feeling lonely I've been ignoring your phone calls I don't feel much like speaking I don't feel much like being here at all They're talkin about you They're talkin about you But you don't know Are you feeling left out? With painted expressions so intricate I guess they wear their faces that way to hide Whispered words on serpent tongues Look closely you can see the tell-tale signs Are you feeling left out? They're talkin about you They're talkin about you ...

BAMF 03:31
They're throwing away everything you say They're throwing away everything you say And they choose to ignore all the things you fight for Until they're not worth fighting for anymore And did you tell all your friends, when you next expected to see them? Last I looked, your calendar was full Well maybe it's because all the talk never lead to anything more And so you're damn well not gonna wait around for them They're throwing away everything you say They're throwing away everything you say And by the time they finally listen to you The last of our days will be through And you will be gone You badass mother fucker

Your hands move so slow I can almost predict where they mean to go I strain to hear every note So if you fall flat I can follow And maybe no one will even know The unspoken battle here's reduced to a joke That I haven't been finding that funny as of late Still, please don't wipe that smile off your face Please don't wipe that smile off your face Please don't wipe that smile off your face You know those days were peculiar Yet so well defined I thought the chords I played could move ya What the hell was going through my mind? Well we sing to the same tunes In my car on these hot California afternoons It's not the song that makes me feel so strongly for you I know I'm not who you're singing to ... Please don't wipe that smile off your face Please don't wipe that smile off ... And just when I've convinced myself that I should leave I see a smile of recognition and I forget everything Please don't wipe that smile off your face Back then those days seemed so special Now those days just seem so sad Y'know I think that I'd be happy If they were the only days I had Please don't wipe that smile off your face Please don't ...

Up Up Up 03:48
I believe they will build me up up up up I believe they will build me up up up I'm experiencing A type of faith I think But I'm unprepared And scared Afraid that they'll leave me here again (Leave me here) Oh I try, I do I do, I, I ... I'm tired of the drive Between San Antonio and Woodside On the 101 I'm done And if you think you understand me could you please Raise your hand (Raise your hand) Raise your hand It's never gonna get much better without them It's never gonna get much better

Hard To Tell 03:48
I think I'm drunk But I'm behind the wheel again I keep building up my tolerance Until a lack of judgement's all you can detect Oh I might miss a word or two Yeah I might slur my vowels "Did he seem alright to you?" "I don't know, it's hard to tell ..." I think I'm losing it I keep buying from the Starbucks down the street Making excuses for bad habits And the good ones I can't keep And the conversations that refuse to lead to anything Of importance at all But in-jokes and movie quotes It's not worthwhile unless it's something recognizable Does it seem alright to you? I don't know it's hard to tell We're all wrapped in our routines Coffee cups litter the road And the drinks we are buying just keep getting sweeter Until we start to believe All the things that we read Even the politicians will start making sense to us We are older, we are tired But I've heard you speak with a fire Every Wednesday at your favorite bar Yelling "It's fucked up, can't you see?" But now you're just part of the scene Entertainment for a long night of drinking Something we can ignore You say, "Forget it all!" We just need more time
