Track Name: American Wives
you're at home
3am you're ready
to fall asleep already, but you can't cause he's at work
(or so he says)

you're an artist
your mind screams when it's honest
and you can't lie, be honest

you can only lie awake and that's the truth

hey it's okay, did you see the news today?
it's no big deal, but I think you were on it

I don't see us getting better
but I don't see us getting much worse

alone again
65 to home and then
you can only wait for her

play it cool the best you can (and that's not great)

hey it's okay, did you see the news today?
it's no big deal, but I think you were on it

I don't see us getting better
but I don't see us getting much worse

and that's gotta be something
Track Name: I Love You, Goodbye
if love is blind then why can I
see your reflection in my eyes?
i kept you with me on the stairs
in my heart and everywhere

part of me has went with you
like I knew that it had to
the waves are screaming out my name
one day I'll answer with the same

you're in the ocean
singing with me
I'll stay right here
please don't forget me

i'll stay right here
please don't forget me

don't wanna think of you and i
but you're a picture in my mind
don't get me wrong, i'm glad you're there
but to me it's still unfair

you deserve a better poem
a symphony when i'm alone
still can't believe that we have died
you know I love you all, goodbye
Track Name: Settle Down
i love your colour
reminiscent of another
it reminds me of our summers, when every night would stretch out into years

and we'd sit, every night
talking til the sun and moon, would go to bed or have a fist fight

and i'd feel, like i did
watching over council houses, hoping something cool might happen soon

settle down, she'll spend the night at his house
settle down and kid yourself you were close
settle down, oh she's not coming home with me

i still love your colour
i heard that you found a new lover
does he live inside your day dreams, the way that you used to live in mine?

she's not coming home with me
she's not coming home at all
Track Name: A&E
saw you out dancing, just the other day
you weren't looking at me, think i almost heard you say

that boy's a dreamer, he's been left for dead
says he likes my tattoos, think he likes me instead

she wants to be a paramedic
wants to save a strangers life
now she wants to hold my hand, does she know she's saving mine?

you're so over-dramatic, what the hell is wrong with you?
nothing right now, but when the lights go on i'll tell you
and it's fine

so over-awed by the sound of her voice
can't remember it now, not like i have a choice

here is my number, don't call me again
here's a blank sheet of paper, go quick grab a pen

and write a song about me
you like like you're good with words
if i'm honest my dear, i can think of no one worse

you're so over-dramatic, what the hell is wrong with you?
nothing right now, but when the lights go on i'll tell you

and i'm fine.
