Track Name: A blue sky every day
With your big brown eyes and your long brown hair, girls like you inspire men to write songs and short stories too—poetry and haiku—and sonnets we must not forget, we must not forget, we must never forget.

Well, one time you were mine, you were mine, everything was fine—a blue sky everyday. I had a blue sky every day.

Birds were flying, birds were singing, flowers blooming, people dreaming lazily—oh so happily.

I took your hand, I took your hand, leaned in for a kiss, I kissed your lips—fireworks! I saw fireworks!

With your big brown eyes and your long brown hair, girls like you inspire men to write songs and short stories too—poetry and haiku—and sonnets we must not forget, we must not forget, we must never forget.

Well, one time you were mine, you were mine, everything was fine—a blue sky everyday. I had a blue sky every day. And then you dumped me.
Track Name: By morning
I'm gonna get high and think of all the people that I know.

The bastards and the liars and the friends and the lovers.

It's been years, I haven't seen you since I was in college and we got mixed up back then.

And I remember in the morning when we woke up wishing night was still there.

And I remember in the morning when we woke up wishing night was still there, before my girlfriend got there.

It's hard to sleep some nights so I stay up.
I pace back and forth and I think of…

hard to sleep some nights so I stay up.
I pace back and forth and I think of…

where I fucked up.

By morning I get lost in a dream where you and I never die or grow old.
Track Name: Busboy blues
Did you take it with you on your flight? Was it right next to you as you slept that night? Did you toss it on the floor? Did you hide it in your dresser drawer, the note I wrote but almost didn’t give to you.

I’ve got the busboy blues. I’d kill our boss if you asked me to. I clean dirty tables for you. I like the way you wear your hair. When you’re not looking, yeah, I stare. I like the way you wear your hair.

Cas, Cas, Cassidy, I’m no good at communicating. Cas, Cas, Cassidy, tell me that you love me! Cas, Cas, Cassidy, now you won’t even speak to me. Cas, Cas, Cassidy, please acknowledge me!

I’ve got the busboy blues. I’d kill myself if you asked me to. I clean dirty tables for you. I like the way you wear your hair. When you’re not looking, yeah, I stare. I like the way you wear your hair.

I’ve got the busboy blues. I’d kill our boss if you asked me to. I clean dirty tables for you. I like the way you wear your hair. When you’re not looking, yeah, I stare. I like the way you wear your hair.
Track Name: Strange quirks
Write you number on this piece of paper and draw some hearts so I’ll remember you. Maybe one day, hey, I’ll give you a call. No you won’t, she said—they never do.

My trust is fragile, my trust is true. I put everything I have in you. “I got so high, I scratched ‘til I bled.” —Copyright infringement.

You have some very strange quirks. They way you fidget, the way you talk. They way you laugh and how you sing, those goddamned habits, they are so endearing.

You stole my favorite shirt. My favorite shirt, it was blue. Now what am I to do? What am I to do?

I’ve got some white ones but they’ve got holes from where my guitar and belt rub close. Yeah, I’ve got some white ones but they’ve got holes from where my guitar and belt rub close.
Track Name: Note to self
I let you down. I always will. It was your heart I wished to steal. I have it now, but what to do? Forever is a long time, but only forever will do.

Get over those girls that you sing about. You never cared for them anyhow. So tell me, who are you trying to kid?

I came home stoned, thought I lost my key—had to wake my parents up from their sleep. Suburban kids, they’re all on drugs—weed and pills and probably inhalants.

You were the first girl that I kissed, in that Mesa, Arizona grove of citrus. After the dance we hopped into your sedan. I put my arms around you in hopes the night would not end.

You’ve got to stop singing about shit like that. It never even happened that way, faker!
Track Name: Happy sad birthday
When I shook your hand I sealed my fate. The days pass so slowly so we wait and we wait and we wait. Our clumsy mistakes. The choices we've made. I remember the day that you fell for me, I remember the day that you fell for me. So here is your song. I never know what to say. Yes, here is your song, happy Valentine's day.

Fuck this house! Who cares about it?! This whole thing is dead so it's time to abandon you and this life, okay, that wasn't nice. I'll make it up to you. I'll make everything right. I'll become the guy you used to know. I was funny and sweet. I brought you flowers and then you said, "Get them away from me I'm allergic to daisies!" Well, then here is your song. I never know what to say. Here is your song, happy Valentine's day.

"A personal attack! How could you do that?!" Your best friend is off crying somewhere in the back. "And I've never known what love is but you make it so vivid, if I could write one like you then I think it'd be worth it. But sometimes, you take things way too far. Who do you think you are?"

So here is your song. I never know what to say. Here is your song. Happy sad birthday.
Track Name: Seven steps to heaven
The words spill out of my mouth. They get pushed back in by the fan on my bedroom floor, I've never wanted nothing more than you.

I don't care as long as you're there. I've got to get some sleep tonight, I've got to get you off my mind.

And then I got sad. We'll never be one and that's too bad. Set adrift on the sea. You keep drifting further from me. It hurts so bad I want to scream. It hurts so bad why did we ever meet?

You're too good to be true. I'd spend my whole life chasing you. The joy you bring to miserable me!
