Track Name: runaways
you sold me out this time
and i wonder why
i let you cross that line
and leave me hanging out to dry

dont try to walk away
dont try to say its wrong
i know you miss me baby
and its been so long

youre my inspiration
to run to run
youre my fantasy
so let run
lets run away

in someone else's maze
you found yourself
and a hundred different ways
to keep me on the shelf

i dont wish to settle down
i dont wish to lose a friend
you might have someone now
but ill still be waiting in the end
Track Name: Kameron
fill the void that's next to me
oh kameron
or trade it all for ecstasy
oh kameron

i didnt realize what i was missing
the calls from other guys, i didn't listen
try and tell me why, oh kameron
you lied

hold me close
dont set me down
im floating up
dont let me drown

i hear it in your sighs when i listen
a thousand different times, still i'm distant
try and tell me why, oh kameron
you cried

miss me miss me
now you gotta kiss me
good night
kiss me goodnight
Track Name: Heart Beats Black
you and i we live in a daze
sullen eyes locked into a long gaze
when its a no-school summer, the lovers come up for air
but in the wintertime im stuck and i don't care

it just feels like nobody told me that,
come on girl, you know...
your heart beats black.

and i know you love me
why dont you hate me?
all that glitters at best is gold
(so i'm told)
you've got me all tongue tied
and feeling like it's making me nervous
but your heart beat's serving its purpose

making me feel like nobody told me that,
come on girl, you know...
your heart beats black.
Track Name: Genius
"so what are you waiting for?
don't try to blow up you're never gonna make it,
its time grow up and learn how to fake it"
i know, I'm no genius
but when you say those things it makes me feel so dumb
so dumb

but if you ask me
I'm only 17
and no one has to hate me
but they carry on

as far as i see
you can't unbury me
so why can't i just make this ditch my home?

so what am i waiting for?
the girls on the street don't smile at me
i mean you'd think i wasn't cool before
i know, I KNOW
I'm no genius
but I just want to sleep and sing my songs
my song

but if you ask me
I'm only 17
and no one has to hate me
still they carry on

from what i can see
you can't unbury me
so I'm just going to make this ditch my home
Track Name: Can't Believe
so you wanted
to know her name
but you're haunted
by something you can not explain
and they say "i never wanna keep you down
but i noticed"
you know they'll never wanna keep you around
until you try to confess

THAT WE CANT SUCCEED IN LOVE UNLESS WE TRY
ABD WE CANT ADMIT WERE HURT SO BAD WHEN IT CUTS US DOWN A SIZE
AND WE CANT BELIEVE THE THINGS WE HOLD INSIDE
OR THE WAY WE ARE REGARDED

state your motives
trade your weekend
change your clothes with something that you look good in
and we know I've been bad
but you're never gonna figure out
those things that I've said and what they all were about
Track Name: Shut Me Down
i don't believe that you could just forget
when we were young you were the teachers pet
i made it up that we could still be friends
i made it up cuz there was still a chance
you'd be telling everyone that i stood you up
and telling everyone that you shut me down

adding it up before i hit the beach
its not enough stay between the sheets with you
partly because today the sun is out
partly because we know theres still a doubt
you'll be telling everyone that we're making up
and telling everyone that you love me now

making up
that you love me now

then the sun goes down
lights out

how could you love me now?
when youve harbored all this pain
and want me to feel the same
DONT YOU LIE
I've found you out
you've been telling everyone that i stood you up
and telling everyone that you shut me down
Track Name: Ulterior Motives
questions or answers
it sounds the same
unless you dont want it to

question your manners
you call his name
when ive been calling you

hold me
hold me do

it hurts so bad
i didnt notice
what you could do
(i loved you)

it hurts so bad
ulterior motives
dont make it true
all i want is...

hold me
hold me so
hold me
don't let go
Track Name: clownface
when i kissed you i swallowed my chewing gum
your warm breath it left me blind, deaf, and dumb
ill speak if you want me to, i just don't know what i'd say
cuz every time i open my mouth the words... they slip away

but just as you walk out of reach its "i love you"
and just as i'm back on my feet is "lay back down"
and if theres a smile on my face, i don't mean to
it's just the expression of a clown

well you could never be the second to another
and if i said i didnt need you, well i guess it was a lie
i wanna show you that i meant to be a man
and if i couldn't be a lover, well i guess i didn't try

but just as you walk out of reach its "i love you"
and just as i'm back on my feet is "lay back down"
and if theres a smile on my face, i don't mean to
it's just the expression of a clown
