Track Name: (nothing)
V: A strange smile is on your lips
You whisper in my ear, yet I hear nothing
As your lips move down my neck, my heart feels desolate
A barren wasteland is what I feel for you

C: Such a tragic loss
My heart’s a mess
Yet words still cut me to my core
And your tender touch melts me

V: We’re in this for the long run; together forever
But forever isn't forever, it’s a ticking time bomb
It’s the end of the world as we know it
And my hands are clasped around your hips


B: I’m drowning, I’m drowning
Someone save me from this watery grave
Despite my pleas
you continue to drag me down

V: C: Such a tragic loss
My heart’s a mess
Yet words still cut me to my core
And your tender touch melts me
Track Name: Gone For Good (The Shins Cover)
Untie me, I've said no vows
The train is getting way too loud
I gotta leave here my girl
Get on with my lonely life
Just leave the ring on the rail
For the wheels to nullify

Until this turn in my head
I let you stay and you paid no rent
I spent twelve long months on the lam
That's enough sitting on the fence
For the fear of breaking dams

I'd find a fatal flaw
In the logic of love
And go out of my head
You love a sinking stone
That'll never elope

So get used to the lonesome
Girl, you must atone some
Don't leave me no phone number there

It took me all of a year
To put the poison pill to your ear
But now I stand on honest ground
On honest ground

You want to fight for this love
But honey you cannot wrestle a dove
So baby it's clear

You want to jump and dance
But you sat on your hands
And lost your only chance

Go back to your hometown
Get your feet on the ground
And stop floating around

I found a fatal flaw
In the logic of love
And went out of my head
You love a sinking stone
That'll never elope

So get used to used to the lonesome
Girl, you must atone some
Don't leave me no phone number there
