Track Name: Remember When
[Verse]
I used to know everything you wanted
I used to know everything you loved
But lately I am lost at sea

I used to feel all the things you told me
I used to feel all the ways you did
But lately I do not believe

[Chorus]
So long ago you let me in
I’m no one now, but I remember when
Oh, I remember when

I used to know where you kept your secrets
I used to know where you kept your heart
But lately I am out of place
I used to feel every fight you fought
And I used to know every line you crossed
But lately I can’t even see your face

[Chorus]

I used to be everything you wanted
I used to be everything you loved
But lately I am lost at sea
Track Name: Giving Up
This is how it all starts
We begin with a weak plan
This is how I fall apart
I think it’s just the way I am
This is where I hold on
Hoping something good’ll come from the mess
And this is where it goes wrong
So I shrug and say I gave it my best

[Chorus]
And I know that you know that I don’t believe in love anyway
And I know that you know that I don’t believe a word that I say
The build up and let down, it’s all for what?
I wake up and break down
I’m giving up
I’m giving up

Stare into the black night
Like staring at a brick wall
Waking up a thousand times
But never waking up at all
Sleeping in a spare bed
Just a room away from all that I want
Trying hard just to make sense
Trying harder just to try to move on

[Chorus]

It’s the last time
It’s the last shot
It’s the goodbye
This is all I’ve got

[Chorus]
Track Name: The Fall
We used to make such a great team
But I was looking for love and we were eighteen
I didn’t know what I wanted, but I wanted you
We spent that summer in daydreams
I know that some days they weren’t what they seemed
But I still believed in the things that we did in your room

[Chorus]
When you’re young, it’s so easy
‘Til reality calls
It’s a new kind of letdown
It’s the rise and the fall

You used to make such a big deal
Said I was taking my chances on the unreal
But I had nothing to say, and I had nothing to lose
We spent that night on your back porch
Kickin’ the dirt at our feet, we said our last words
I didn’t know what you wanted, but I wanted you

[Chorus]

Every love is the first time
‘Til the crack in the wall
It’s a new kind of letdown
It’s the rise and the fall

We used to make such a great team
But I was looking for love and we were eighteen
You didn’t know what you wanted, and I wanted you

[Chorus]

When you’re young, it’s so easy
‘Til the crack in the wall
It’s a new kind of letdown
It’s the rise and the fall
Track Name: Call Your Girlfriend (Robyn Cover)
[Verse]
Call your girlfriend
It’s time you had the talk
Give your reasons
Say it’s not her fault

But you just met somebody new
Tell her not to get obsessed
Second-guessing everything you’ve said and done
When she gets upset
Tell her how you never meant to hurt no one

[Chorus]
You just tell her that the only way her heart will mend
Is when she learns to love again
It won’t make sense right now
But you’re still her friend
And then you let her down easy
You let her down easy

[Verse]

But you just met somebody new
Don’t you tell her how I give you something
That you never even knew you missed
Don’t you even try and explain
How it’s so different when we kiss

[Chorus]

[Verse]

But you just met somebody new
And now it’s gonna be me and you

[Chorus]

[Verse]
Track Name: Take You Back
Well, the TV’s turned to static
And I’m still in bed with you
And sometimes I think I’ve had it
But I’m still in bed with you
And it’s true, I shouldn’t be here anymore
But I don’t really care about that now

All the days that I spend trying
To find out what I’ve done wrong
Somehow seem to be forgotten
When I write myself a song
To remind me why I started this whole thing
So I’ll sing, and I’ll wing it once again

[Chorus]
I still find comfort in the comfort
Familiarity has got me bad
So I’ll expect you on my doorstep, darling
And I will probably take you back

And so many times repeated
Trace my steps back to the start
‘Cause I’ve memorized my lines now
You could shoot me through the heart
To protect me from doing what I might regret
But won’t, baby, don’t, just be my sin

And I’m not afraid of endings
I sense no impending doom
‘Cause although you say it’s over
We are still just me and you, through and through
Two kids without a sense of self control
Just the goal of giving in

[Chorus]
