Track Name: Bad Side Acoustic
Burned my tongue
spitting insults
lessons learned
be more adult
I'm not feeding you
you're already full
I'm not answering
another knock joke

turn your other cheek and prove yourself to me
written on the napkin at the bar where she was sittin
and if time wasnt skipping out on the bill
this wouldve been resolved with an earlier phone call
but now the door has slammed and its my bad side youre on

grab your coat stop checking your watch
this bar has closed we'll go down the block
where another girl might smile at you and catch your eye
youll fumble it again and blame it on this dive

turn your other cheek and prove yourself to me
written on the napkin at the bar where she was sittin
and if time wasnt skipping out on the bill
this wouldve been resolved with an earlier phone call
but now the door has slammed and its my bad side youre on

is there still whiskey in that jar
ive had enough of your arguing
when you two fight you sound like children
im not listening

blurry ill always see you through the bottle
your name ill recall dripping with whiskey traces

my bad side you're on
Track Name: Atlanta
I'm taking your words to heart
& if you really wanna be apart
There's a diner in Atlanta I can spend the night in
The coffee keeps me warmer than your arms can
The waitress made a racket
Dropping all those plates
I was counting sugar packets
To take mind off all the ways
I was gonna try to win you back
When I made my way upstate
But I stopped counting the miles when I stopped missing your smile
Keep calm
Sound the alarm
This is only a robbery
Take what you want from me cause my hands are up I don't know what I want from you
Played your song tonight
Keeping you close was like a suicide
Dreams of mine are now nightmares that you've left behind
My father says I'm not cut for this
I've got scars on my arms that say something different
And if I'm cut already I'm gonna pick my poison
Keep calm
Sound the alarm
This is only a robbery
Take what you want from me cause my hands are up I don't know what I want from you
I was thinking of the coast line in the middle of the countryside
Seems my minds always in another state
Georgia you've been kind to me and I'm kinda sad that I have to leave
At least youre just a few hours away
Keep calm
Sound the alarm
This is only a robbery
Take what you want from me cause my hands are up I don't know what I want from you
Track Name: @mybest
at my best is where you found me
at my worst is where you left
i feel alone in these surroundings but more comfortable than at home
even though you said all my dreams were a waste of time
that dont mean that someday i wont learn how to fly

when you said it was embarrassing as hell
to be the only my age who still asked for help
but i was raised to be embarrassed as hell
to be the only one at any age needing help

nicole is wrapped in a blanket and asked me to stop the room from spinning
i swear she called me somebody elses name but nows the the time to ask those questions
you said i had a knack for this and i had an ear for that
id be the catchiest catch if i caught up and on to where my head was at
darling you wont find an argument from me there
but thats neither here nor there


when you said it was embarrassing as hell
i already knew it
i already knew it

when you said it was embarrassing as hell
to stand by my side while i asked for help
i was raised to be embarrassed as hell
to be the only at any age needing help
but i still need your help

i cant find the puzle pieces that you fell into
you wanted better of me and i wanted to complete you
if and when you get back to this room
you're probably gonna say that its trashed
cause the man in the mirror
he didnt like my act
and he swung one at my face
i swung a better one right back
thats when i realized youre not coming back

see you later alligator
after a while crocodile
its your butterfly kisses ill be mourning
see you later alligator
after awhile crocodile
your butterfly kisses ill be mourning
see you later alligator
after awhile crocodile
im gonna miss you in the morning
Track Name: stuck&stoned
bright lights and a bigger city
she is all alone in apartment 8B and i dont think she remembers the last time she cried i believe it was a tuesday night
uncorked a bottle celebrating her losses
whyd she wait until now to feel homesick
teardrops dotting the letter she writes
fittingly it reads

sticks and stones they may break my bones but the words i dont know youre saying shouldnt hurt me
seems to be the rule eve been living by here lately
and frankly it aint working out for me

your bags are packed and youre ready to go
you sang with a smile as you slammed the door
damnit i forgot i told you that song could male me cry
but its nothing compared to the melody that you sang when i carried you through the doorway for the first time

dont let this be the lst time
dont let this be the last time

like all good things
it lasted for bout a week

then it was sticks and stones
thy may break me bonesbut the words i dont low youre saying
seem to hurt me
seems to me thats the rule that weve been living by here lately and frankly it aint working out for me

once upon a time when i called this place
i laid down on the couch i turned you and a movie on
then the lights went out and now im pushing all your buttons wrong
a few years ago you were my reason to fly back home
im sorry i left you alone
a few years from now youll be scared to tell me how
you still think of all my favoritest favoritest things
cause ill shear it as you still think of me
cause i dont regret anything
at last of all you
least of all you
like all good things it lasted fr about a week

sticks and stones they may break my bones but the words i dont know youre saying shouldnt hurt me
seems to be the rule eve been living by here lately
and frankly it aint working out for me

do you ever wish
that some songs didnt end
every song ends
Track Name: 1941
you were telling me how you met him
story leads to why you left him
and the way you returned you said his eyes look like diamonds

you said you didnt wanna seem e cry
but you had to tell me why
you were feeling the anxiety again
and you were right

you were right beside me
you were telling me not to cry
id see him again in another life
now youre above me
at least thats what they say i should believe

but you know its hard to believe in anything

what do i believe
i should always question everything
who what when why
what if i believed
every word that you told me
would you have died
is it sad to say
that my favorite memory of you
takes place in a 5th floor hospital room
when you pulled me in close and said that you had it all
i hope that one day i can be like you and have it all
Track Name: Doreen
When I first met Doreen
She was barely seventeen
She was drinking whiskey sours in the bar

The way she tossed 'em back
I would've had a heart attack
But as it is I let her drive my car

We galloped through the boro
Like a pair of horny thoroughbreds
Until I said, "Stop the car, Doreen"

Well, you can roll your eyes and nod
But I swear that I saw God in the moonlight
On a side street in the wreckage we call Queens

Doreen, Doreen, last night, I had an awful dream
You were laying in the arms of a man I'd never seen
Come clean, Doreen, come clean, Doreen

Well, I'm pulling into Cleveland
In a seven-seater tour van
There's eight of us, so I'm sleeping on the floor

The guy that plays the banjo
Keeps on handing me the old crow
Which multiplies my sorrow, I can't take it anymore

Doreen, Doreen, last night, I had an awful dream
You were laying in the arms of a man I'd never seen
Come clean Doreen, come clean, Doreen

Now I'm begging and I'm pleading
"Well pull over guys, I'm bleeding
There's a fina off the highway with a phone"

I'm calling you, Doreen
But it rings and rings and rings
Where is it that you are, if you aren't in our bed at home

Doreen, Doreen, last night, I had an awful dream
You were laying in the arms of a man I'd never seen
Come clean, Doreen, come clean, Doreen
Track Name: Dancing in the Park
It rained all day when you left town
I feel I should've been there to see you off
There's no excuse that goodbyes are too hard for me
I've never heard from anyone who says they're not

And it seems like such a long time
since I've seen the sunrise
and in my mind true beauty
only looked good in your eyes

To borrow a phrase I'm holding on
to can't let go's
and patiently awaiting my friend's
"I told you so"
She promised me things will be better next year
She said you've gotta lose to prove
that you care

There's no shapes to find in these clouds
believe me I've been looking all day
Without you here to point them out
they all just look the same

I don't go out at night anymore
there was more fun when there
were two of us on the dance floor

When I smile I feel like
I'm livin' a lie
the only true forever was in your eyes

They said she's letting go
she's stopped ignoring the "I told you so"
She promised me things will be better next year
I'll believe it when I see it
She said you've gotta lose to prove that you care
That's not what I wanna hear

I'm playing that song and going
back to all of those nights

Where nothing went wrong
and it seemed like every little thing went right

After all we've been through
why am I falling into hate with you

We've wasted so many hours
just afighting over the truth

so don't let go
pay no attention to I told you so's
I believe you when you say
this will all be better next year
please don't ever think
that I don't care

Is there any doubt in your mind
that I still care

Please don't ever think that I don't care

I still care
I still care
Track Name: Bad Side Electric
Burned my tongue
spitting insults
lessons learned
be more adult
I'm not feeding you
you're already full
I'm not answering
another knock joke

turn your other cheek and prove yourself to me
written on the napkin at the bar where she was sittin
and if time wasnt skipping out on the bill
this wouldve been resolved with an earlier phone call
but now the door has slammed and its my bad side youre on

zip up your coat stop checking your watch
this bar has closed but we'll just go on down the block
where another girl might catch your eye
youll fumble it again and blame it on this dive

turn your other cheek and prove yourself to me
written on the napkin at the bar where she was sittin
and if time wasnt skipping out on the bill
this wouldve been resolved with an earlier phone call
but now the door has slammed and its my bad side youre on

its dark in here but im used to drifting in blank spaces
shout out your name
ill recall it dripping with whiskey traces
blurry ill always see you through the bottle
so when you turned and i tilted my head back wasnt that the side you were begging to see

now the door has slammed and its my bad side youre on

my bad side you're on
