Track Name: She Wrongs The Right
Well your shoulder is cold
But my heart is sold
Oh no.

I’m not giving up
I’m just giving space
And I hope that I don’t lose my place

She wrongs the right (wrongs the right)

There’s something we both know
With a chance to grow
Oh no.

So just give me a sign
So I’m not running blind
Oh no.

I know I can’t let go
It’s too good to say no
So why are you denying the truth?

She wrongs the right (wrongs the right)
Track Name: Whiskers
I just should shave my beard
Because my friends think it’s weird
I just should shave it off
Then girls might think I’m hot

Maybe I should trim it down
People think I look like a demented clown
But I can’t let it go
Oh beard I love you so

You’re soft and furry
And frame my face
I can’t envision myself
Without you in that place

(I won’t give up on you)
And a moustache won’t do
(To please the skeptic few)
I don’t want a goatee
(You keep me safe and warm)
It’s a beard for me
If you left I’d be forlorn

Honestly I cannot see
My cheeks unfuzzy 
I’ll find a super girl
Who’ll love my facial curls

Thank you for helping me
Conceal my baby face
I can’t envision myself
Without you in that place

(I won’t give up on you)
(To please the skeptic few)
Track Name: Red Handed
You sold out, it’s overrated

I don’t think I could ever ever see you
I don’t think I could right the wrongs I’ve left you
I don’t think I could ever ever bring you back
Track Name: Aimless
I won’t get to sleep tonight for a while
Because I can’t shut off my mind, wondering why
Aimless roads greet wipers on beat

Radio man says there’s been a crash on the road
I don’t want to go like that
A foot note at the top of the hour
Causing traffic

Making people late for home
To watch their daughters grow
Missing their favorite TV shows

So I should head back to home where I’ll meet
Loneliness and my faltering steps 
But I know it’s not so bad
The sun will come up giving me another chance
For a waltz in pressed pants

Don’t give up on someone that you want.
Track Name: Incredulous
Oh my God
What have I done?
I’m not sure of anyone

We gave up our good luck
For easy thought and peace

I guess I probably should’ve known
To let you be and not use the phone
This should have worked but I can’t leave you behind
In my mind.

The curtain moves in the wind
Shadowing my sins

It casts a blur on my wonder
Where you might have been.

Don’t let those thoughts inside my head
Of you naked in someone’s bed
I’ve had enough of those daydreams
So let me sleep

It’s time to remove your face from it’s place in my mind
I don’t even want to keep you as a memory.

In my mind
In my mind
I want to find
Peace of mind.
Track Name: Earshot
It’s taken us eight long years to pretend 
This won’t come to an end
But I give up

We have known both love and misery
Which was largely due to me
But you’re no saint.

It won’t work with no trust
Forget it, there’s no us
So we must say goodbye

Fearing what we don’t know
Will never help us grow
We know that this is best (is best)
To put our love to rest

Given all that we know
We’ll never fully let go
But sometimes caring means to (means to)
Allow for something new

With our final chapter at an end
I have lost my best friend
And you have too

A story of sadness and deep regret
Sprinkled with pleasure and mix cassettes
That I still play

I still think about you
There’s nothing I can do
But ignore my heart
And let us part.

Fearing what we don’t know
Will never help us grow
We know that this is best (is best)
To put our love to rest

Given all that we know
We’ll never fully let go
But sometimes caring means to (means to)
Allow for something new
