Track Name: Better
You said confidence doesn't matter much
but how would you know
when you've never had enough
guess my words nowadays don't scan as such
if they're too soft-spoken for you to judge
i'm not trying to hound you on your self doubt
but you deserve to trade this stern for a better bow
the sinking ship which fled from the rat
you always knew you could've earned better than that
this has never been better
it'll get to me if i let her
she gets me, i guess
it can never get better than this
i'm not joining your mob
i don't care whose side you're on
or what's written on your sign this time
cause i never did read it right anyway
that's why it's taken me so long to say
what i really always thought about that day
good intentions, but bad tendencies
bind me to you, and you to me
your inertia keeps me right on track
i'd never catch up
if you weren't always snapping at my back
i won't ask about you anymore
if you'd only be honest with me for once
i miss you, what's with you
i only ever asked for your excuse.
Track Name: Easy
A 'yes' means i'm distressed
a 'no' means: i still don't know
what to think
or what to do
about not being able
to bring myself to see you
in such a state of disgrace
i guess my emotions are easy to read
when you claim to know everything
you said "stay with me"
but last i checked, i'm not a charity
but you're too nice not to know
despite all those evenings stolen whole
and all my secrets that you hold
that i hope will not be told
you said "return to me"
but baby, i'm not so good at learning
to deserve your needs.
Track Name: Pissing Contest
At least you've got me to judge
as if no one else already does
but not to the extent you're aware of
so what's up with us
angry words on the couch
that never left the house
until now
when i divest
all attempts
at making amends
well at least you've got me to judge
as if no one else already does
but not to the extent you're aware of
so what's up with us
it's been weird but not quite as rough
i expected much less from you
more or less
but then something more was said
these days, i forget what it was.
Track Name: Bridgeroom - Everyday
I can't pretend
that i'm happy with the way this ends
i know i said
i can't handle losing it again
but we both know
i'm some who's better left alone
i'm coming home
to see all these friends that i don't know
i should've known
from the way you sounded on the phone
i'm just a kid
and i can't hide from all my sins
i'm still afraid
of the dark, the light, and everyday
i don't wanna say
i deserved this, you moving away
i don't wanna say
his name
it's been two years
i'm exactly what i always feared
and no one's here
but the silence and this empty beer
i don't know
what i want but i know it's not here.
Track Name: Bridgeroom - Close
Don't kid yourself
faking a smile won't help
you've got nothing
and haven't really laughed since she left
it was too much
too close to really know
your affections
all lack direction
talk to yourself
and drown out every awful sound
it was too much
too close to really know
so go get fucked up again
and laugh it off.
Track Name: Bridgeroom - Forget Me Not
I bought some gasoline and matches
and i stacked up everything
scrapbooks, the letters and
every christmas card you sent
it doesn't change a thing
and nothing can fix the feeling
as i remember how you used to sing
i'm choking on the smoke in my lungs
i'll take it in and hope it takes you out
without it i've got nothing left
you're just another failed attempt at love
i hope he makes you happy
i hope that he can fill
the empty place inside of you
that no one else will
i hope he makes you happy
i hope that he can fill
the empty place inside of you
that no one else will
do you remember that night
outside sitting in my car
my eyes were brighter than the stars
i said that i would be there
you said you'd always care
there's nothing i could want more
than the love we used to share
i hope he makes you happy
i hope that he can fill
the empty place inside of you
that no one else will
i know he makes you happy
i know he makes you feel
all those fucking things
i guess i never will.
