Track Name: Cats!
Pass on down what's left of the bottle
we're gonna get drunk tonight
I know you've been getting put through
I'm here to let you know everything's gonna be alright.
We party for the left and leaving
all the little loves we hold in our hearts
the march of time may take you from me
But nothing's ever gonna really keep us apart.

Can we please take a moment for the cats we love?
and the ones we haven't met yet
All our time spent together you know it's never enough,
Now I know what that look in your face meant.
I never want to say goodbye, I never want to let you out of reach.
I never want to say goodbye, but I guess sometimes
It's just not up to me.

Pass on by what gets left to the shadows
it's gonna be another really long day
the endless words may still feel hollow
I'm here to let you know you won't always feel that way.
Every day you get a little further from it,
it's never gonna be the way it was before.
You've been putting on a really strong face
and that's the person B was saving his love for.

You know life's not fair,
that what they tell you when you ask them.
You had a choice to make,
and it may feel bad but you know it's the right one.

Can we please take a moment for the cats we love,
and the ones we haven't met yet?
Track Name: Lights Off
I'm so fucking sick of these shades of grey
while the girl I love is 4 blocks away
I can't help feeling just a little bit like a disaster
Every question I had asked before
just leaves me sinking further into the floor
& she don't even really know what she's after
Every time I said it I meant it
When you said this hurt you I felt it

Turn off, turn off the lights
saying goodbye but should be
saying goodnight
curling up alone, but could be
curling up with me
Turn off, turn off the lights
You said I did you wrong, so let me make it right
let me show you how good this love can be

It's been a long time since I've felt like this
& I can honestly say it's not something I missed
being lonely' s just so much less hard
And I really don't know what I'm supposed to do
I can't stop my self from making distance from you
we can work on this if you can find it in your heart
Every time I said it I meant it
When I thought you were leaving I
panicked

Every single second that I hold my breath
is a wasted moment that could have been spent
exhaling into your ear
It's in these moments that the future changed
you were stopping time 10,000 miles away
when you really should have been here

Gimme a change to clean up the mess I've made
and detail the prevention of future mistakes
I swear I can do better if you let me
Can we chalk it up to a trial run
I lost the race when I jumped the gun
I'll be more patient next time if you'll have me
Track Name: Say No
Here's what you get, you're either fucked up or dead
and every single word is like a knife in the head
and I'll tell you what she said, she said, she said no.
Here's what you get $4,000 in debt,
and every single breath's another moment of regret,
and I'll tell you what she said, she said, she said no.

Here's what you lost, every single coin toss
shit's been coming up tails a fuck of a lot.
and I'll tell you what she said, she said, she said no.
Here's what you lost and now here's the cost,
counting the misery while you stave off the frost
and I'll tell you what she said, she said, she said no.

Here's what you get you get to lie in that bed
you get to sweat in those sheets, you don't get to forget
and I'll tell you get, you get, always no.
Here's what you get you get caught in that net
you don't get to leave 'cuz it's wrapped around your neck,
and I'll tell you what you get, you get, you get fucked.
