Track Name: Just Another Love Song
I’ve got one. Or two.
or just a few reasons that I’m
over your abuse.
You used to be a tattoo
now you’re just a bad bruise
You were always bad news.

But I couldn’t refuse,
everything we
always got to do when I was with you

I could've said the right thing
I should've said the wrong thing, now
Could’ve said the right thing
Almost said the wrong thing all along

Nothing will change, nothing will change, nothing will
Nothing will change, if stay the same, cause
I, I need a push from an old friend cause my wheels are stuck
again, and again and again and again

Give me the check or give me death
Take me to court so I can take you to bed

It wasn’t the irony that killed me cause I found peace
it was the melody
that song was the remedy that fixed me

I could've said the right thing
Should've said the wrong thing all along

Nothing will change, nothing will change, nothing will
Nothing will change, if stay the same, cause
I, I need a push from an old friend cause my wheels are stuck
again, and again and again and again

Cause I got one. Or two.
Or just a few reasons that I'm finally over you.
You used to be a tattoo
now you’re just a bad bruise
you were always bad news

But I couldn’t refuse
everything we always got to do
when I was with you

Cause you’re just another love song
Track Name: The Outfield
I was flooded with memories as I received the news
You were 4 years my elder, taken 40 years too soon
On your way, to see your daughter's first softball game
A surprise for her cause she thought you we’re working late

You said I was stupid,
Can’t tell me what to do.
I never had a plan, I never follow through
I always learn the hard way, I don’t know what to do
But you always picked me up when I fell in front of you

I keep my posters on my wall where your picture used to be
It hard to look at these days
I keep my posters on the wall where your pictures used to be
It’s hard to look at, so hard to look at
And as time ticks by all you got are love notes and polaroids

I wish I could see the sunset
Big and beautiful like her eyes
But lately they’ve been hurting
Cause life took you at 25

Your baby she’s crying
Cause daddy’s never coming home
And now your lady’s hurting
Cause you two were gonna grow old

Them she finds out you got a son on the way
She falls to her knees, and she starts to pray
Begging for you to come home
Cryin’ for you to come home

I keep my posters on my wall where your picture used to be
It hard to look at these days
I keep my posters on the wall where your pictures used to be
It’s hard to look at, so hard to look at
And as time ticks by all you got are love notes and Polaroids
Track Name: Anthem Without A Name
Ive been sitting around wasting all my time
hoping you would call me tonight
Staring in the mirror at the man that I don’t recognize

But ill go out alone and walk the line between the safe and unknown
Head down and fingers crossed
searching the streets for more broken hearts

We’re the young and the hated
We’re graceful but jaded
to the world thats let us down more than we can count
We’re the young and the hated
We’re graceful but jaded
All we can do is look to the east and wait for the fire

After all of this time I felt so low, You’re still a ghost that I just don’t know
its not me, so it must be you
but Ill spend another night with this bottle alone

I don’t need your pity, I don’t want anything you have to give
I don’t need your pity
I don’t want it so you can take it

We’re the young and the hated
We’re graceful but jaded
to the world thats let us down more than we can count
We’re the young and the hated
We’re graceful but jaded
All we can do is look to the east and wait for the fire

Turn off the lights, open the window
I need to hear a sound I know
Cover me like a wave, Let it take me
Im thinking again, drown the sound
In anything or everything that you can find
(Im not the only one that wants to be alone tonight)
We’re the young and the hated

I put up a fight, she wins every time, I’ll get over it
(You don’t have to be confident, you just gotta sell it)
