I Love You. Lyrics
(Lyrics to the Full Album on one page)

How

[Verse 1:]
How could you question God's existence
when you question God himself?
Why would you ask for God's assistance
if you wouldn't take the help?

[Bridge:]
If you're gone, then I need you
If you're gone, then how is any of this real?
When I'm on, I believe you
When I'm not, my knees don't even seem to feel

[Hook:]
How could you tell me that I'm great
When they chew me up, spit me out, pissed on me?
Why would you tell me that it's fate
When they laughed at me, every day, in my face?

[Verse 2:]
They say the end is coming sooner
But the end's already here
I said today is but a rumor
That we'll laugh at in a year
Or two, or three, or four, or five, whatever

[Bridge]

[Hook (x2)]

How?
How could you tell me that I'm great?
How?
How could you tell me that it's fate?
How?

Afraid

When I wake up I'm afraid, somebody else might take my place
When I wake up I'm afraid, somebody else might take my place

Make that money, fake that bunny, ache my tummy
On the fence, all the time
Paint young honey, face so sunny, ain't that funny
All my friends always lie to me
I know they're thinking

You're too mean, I don't like you, f*ck you anyway
You make me wanna scream at the top of my lungs
It hurts but I won't fight you
You suck anyway
You make me wanna die, right when I

When I wake up I'm afraid, somebody else might take my place [x3]
When I wake up I'm afraid, somebody else might end up being me

Keep on dreaming, don't stop giving, fight those demons
Sell your soul, not your whole self
If they see you when you're sleeping, make them leave it
And I can't even see if it's all there anymore so

You're too mean, I don't like you, f*ck you anyway
You make me wanna scream at the top of my lungs
It hurts but I won't fight you
You suck anyway
You make me wanna die, right when I

When I wake up I'm afraid, somebody else might take my place [x3]
When I wake up I'm afraid, somebody else might end up being me

Being me and only me
Feeling scared to breathe
If you leave me then I'll be afraid of everything
That makes me anxious, gives me patience, calms me down
Lets me face this, let me sleep, and when I wake up
Let me breathe

When I wake up I'm afraid, somebody else might take my place [x3]
When I wake up I'm afraid, somebody else might end up being me

Everybody's Watching Me (Uh Oh)

[Verse 1:]
I told you I would tell you everything you want to know
You want me to tell you now
You [?] you to hear about it
To think that I would count you out

[Bridge:]
I let you find it on your own
Then I found myself alone

[Hook:]
Uh oh, where can I go?
Everybody's watching me
Uh oh, where can I go?
Everybody's watching me
Ooh ooh, what can I do
If you're not here to tell you?
Uh oh, where can I go?
Everybody's watching me

[Verse 2:]
I go through all the trouble of keeping it within my walls
I try to be as subtle as I can
Assume that nothing needs me, all I've done defeats me
It looks like you were right again
And again

[Bridge]

[Hook]

[Verse 3:]
The more I want in, the more I want in
The less I know, the less I know
But I forgot it, I forgot it
I'll be alone, I'll be alone, I'll be alone
With everybody watching me

[Hook]

Watching me, watching me, me, me
They're watching me, me, me
Watching me, me, me, me
Everybody's watching me

Sweater Weather

All I am is a man
I want the world in my hands
I hate the beach
But I stand
In California with my toes in the sand

Use the sleeves of my sweater
Let's have an adventure
Head in the clouds but my gravity's centered
Touch my neck and I'll touch yours
You in those little high waisted shorts, oh

She knows what I think about
And what I think about
One love, two mouths
One love, one house
No shirt, no blouse
Just us, you find out
Nothing that wouldn't wanna tell you about no

'Cause it's too cold
For you here and now
So let me hold
Both your hands in the holes of my sweater

And if I may just take your breath away
I don't mind if there's not much to say
Sometimes the silence guides our minds to
So move to a place so far away

The goose bumps start to raise
The minute that my left hand meets your waist
And then I watch your face
Put my finger on your tongue
'Cause you love the taste yeah

These hearts adore everyone the other beats' heart is for
Inside this place is warm
Outside it starts to pour

Coming down
One love, two mouths
One love, one house
No shirt, no blouse
Just us, you find out
Nothing that I wouldn't wanna tell you about, no no

[2x]
'Cause it's too cold
For you here and now
So let me hold
Both your hands in the holes of my sweater

Whoa, whoa...
Whoa, whoa... whoa
Whoa, whoa... [x2]

'Cause it's too cold
For you here and now
So let me hold
Both your hands in the holes of my sweater

It's too cold
For you here and now
Let me hold
Both your hands in the holes of my sweater

It's too cold,
It's too cold
The holes of my sweater...

Let It Go

I'm from a little city with expensive taste,
Where the cars don't run until the engine breaks.
Wasn't spending pennies on massive things,
But invested in mess with this recipe.
Couldn't quite see what the future held
And as days went by it would tell itself.
Let it struggle just a little bit more,
Let it struggle just a little bit more.

Remember what the people said,
Remember what the people said,
When it's said and done,
Let it go.

Remember what the people said,
Remember what the people said,
When it's said and done,
Let it go.

Shouldn't try to fix it if it keeps getting better,
Just let it go, forget it for ever and ever and ever
Don't ever resent a letter inside a single word written,
A little change can play lanes with the right vision.
Couldn't tell what would happen next
But as weeks went by look what turned to best.
Let it struggle just a little more,
Let it struggle just a little bit more, mhm.

Remember what the people said,
Remember what the people said,
When it's said and done,
Let it go.

Remember what the people said,
Remember what the people said,
When it's said and done,
Let it go.

If what they said was all pretend then it'd be different,
If it depended on if anyone was listening,
And I was listening.
And when they said that what I wanted was a figment,
I had to turn the other cheek but I was listening,
Yeah I was listening, listening to all.

Remember what the people said,
Remember what the people said,
When it's said and done,
Let it go.

Remember what the people said,
Remember what the people said,
When it's said and done,
Let it go.

Remember what the people said,
Remember what the people said,
I wasn't listening,
I wasn't listening, listening at all.

Remember what the people said,
Remember what the people said,
Oh I wasn't listening,
I wasn't listening, listening at all.

(At all at all at all )
At all,
At all.

Alleyways

If things were different, we were young
Skinny dipping, having fun, I remember
Back in 1991, when the story first begun, I remember (I remember)
All of these shells, holding the things I've done
I knew myself before I knew anyone

And cause we all chew gum, we all have fun with water guns
La da da da da da, da da dum dum dum
And we all grew up, shit got tough
Shit just wasn't simple enough

And whenever the sun came out, we played
(We didn't want to get older, we didn't want to get older)
We would run on the block all night and day
(We didn't want to get older)

What a mistake, saying the way I felt
I say my name influences myself
And cause I started young, I learned it done, I didn't run
La da da da da da
I was scared as f*ck and out of touch, and I was still testing my luck, oh

And whenever the sun came out, we played
(We didn't want to get older, we didn't want to get older)
We would run on the block all night and day
(We didn't want to get older, we didn't want to get older)
And whenever the sun came out, we played
(We didn't want to get older, we didn't want to get older)
I left myself in the alleyway

If things were different, we were young
Skinny dipping, having fun, I remember
(I left myself in the alleyway)
All I wanted would become everything I ever loved, I remember
(I left myself in the alleyway)

W.D.Y.W.F.M?

[Verse 1:]
Tonight's a go, she got that look in her eyes
Kaleidoscope, but that's only half the time
Three days before she told me that I don't even try
She's crazy, through, I guess there's something wrong inside

[Hook:]
Maybe you're right, maybe this is all that I can be
But what if it's you, and it wasn't me?
What do you want from me?
What do you want from me?

[Verse 2:]
Four weeks ahead, I thought that I should think some more
I'm f*cked in the head, and my mind is turning into a whore
Five months go by, and I thought about letting her go
She's crazy, though, and I guess she took control
Oh no, oh no, oh no, oh no

[Hook]

[Verse 3:]
Maybe she's right, maybe I'm wrong
Maybe we'll fight 'til it moves us along
I can't deny writing a song
Hoping she'll find she's not alone

[Hook]

Flawless

[Verse 1:]
She planned ahead for a year, he said "Let's play it by ear"
She didn't want him to run, he didn't want her to fear
Nobody said it'd be easy, they knew it was rough
But, tough luck

[Bridge:]
I fell in love today, there aren't any words you can say
That could ever get my mind to change
She's enough for me, she's in love with me

[Hook:]
You're a doll, you are flawless
But I just can't wait for love to destroy us
I just can't wait for love
You're only flaw, you are flawless
But I just can't wait for love to destroy us
I just can't wait for love

[Verse 2:]
So, she put his heart in a bag, he wouldn't ask for it back
He didn't want her to cry, she didn't want to be sad
She said, "You better not leave me"
This shit'll be f*cked for days and weeks and months, but

[Bridge]

[Verse 3:]
Add it all up, I can find it
The problem with love is I'm blinded by
It rattles my lungs, but my mind is
Tangled between your little flaws
Your flaws, your flaws, your flaws

[Hook]

Wait for love, I won't wait for love
Wait for love, I won't wait for love
Wait for love

Female Robbery

I think I found help
I think I found something.
I think I found something in my TV screen.
I think I found out that I have nothing,
That I have nothing in this place for me.

I watched it all in my head, perfect sense.
They'll take me from me my bed,
Leave everything that is worth a single cent and just take me instead.
That TV show,
I saw as I feel asleep.
Had me on both my knees,
Praying to whatever is in heaven please send me a felon,
And don't let the police know.

Anything, anything,
Don't tell them anything,
Anything, please.

Anything, anything,
Don't tell them anything,
Anything, please.

I think I can tell,
I think I can tell them,
Tell them they were made for me.
I'm thinking they'll know, know it already.

I'm thinking they'll know just about everything,
I bet they planned it all out,
Like the shows
Went everywhere I go.
Walked into the store right behind me,
Stood in line right beside me and followed me to my home.
I'm sure they figured it out early on
That I would never run.
That they could shoot but that's not fun,
Cause then they're killing their stolen son.

Anything, anything,
Don't tell them anything,
Anything, please.

Anything, anything,
Don't tell them anything,
Anything, please.

We're gonna die...

Staying Up

[Verse 1:]
No food to eat, all the money's been wasted from last week
I can't even leave, so I sleep in the basement, making up rap beats
Hot cup of tea, it's four o'clock in the middle of the night, and I can't sleep
It's all on the peak, so bad I can taste it while it eats me

[Hook:]
How can I sleep if I don't have dreams?
I just have nightmares
How can it be?
I still believe something is out there

[Verse 2:]
Some part of me feels a little bit naked and empty
I'm stuck underneath a few dirty old blankets to comfort me

[Hook (x2)]

[Verse 3:]
And there's a light, and I can see why I'm still alive
Mommy won't lie, cause if she did, I would've died
All the time I sit and try, you think I'd be down
Every night, I'm sick and why, oh, I'm staying up this time

[Hook (x2)]

Float

[Verse 1:]
Imagine breathing in
Imagine leaving all your air behind
What matters in the end
A matter of opinion 'til you find out

[Bridge:]
Life can only mean hardly anything
All I'll ever be is partly settled in

[Hook:]
To show you how to swim, then they throw you in the deep end
I've been learning since, but it doesn't mean I float
I won't float, no, no, no, no, oh, float

[Verse 2:]
I had a funny sleep,
I didn't have a dream
because I don't believe in them

[Bridge]

[Hook]

[Verse 3:]
Float away, float away, then come right back to me
Float away, float away, then come right back to me

[Hook]

[Verse 4:]
What if I, what if I don't float?
What if I don't float?
I think I'll float, I'll float
I'll float away
