Track Name: Libby's Song
Hey there pretty face
What are you doing tonight?
Will you go out with me
And show me the light?

Can I maybe hold your hand or
Kiss you on the cheek or
Flat out get on my knees
And ask you to marry me

Hey there, I love you
Hey there, you're gorgeous too
Hey there, you're looking fine
Hey there, can I make you mine
You're so much better than her and
You'll make me happier

You're always on my mind and
I can't stop thinking about you
You're a life ruiner

The way you dance, and the way you sing,
And the way you act, and the way you talk
And the way you smile, and the way you walk,
The way you're just so perfect to me

Hey there, I love you
Hey there, you're gorgeous too
Hey there, you're looking fine
Hey there, can I make you mine
You're so much better than her and
You'll make me happier

Punk rock

I know we'll never be and
There's someone better for you and
There's someone better for me and
We'll be happy anyway but

Just thought I'd let you know that
You're so wonderful and
I'd give up everything
Just to be with you

Hey there, I love you
Hey there, you're gorgeous too
Hey there, you're looking fine
Hey there, can I make you mine
You're so much better than her and
You'll make me happier
You're so much better than her and
You'll make me happier
Track Name: Love Happened Here
I never thought it would end up like this
I never thought I'd grow so attached
These memories will never fade
The memories of love

The love

Love happened here
In the very special little place
On the corner of west 44th and 8th
Love happened here
I'll never forget the times we spent
Sitting on the steps of the establishment

Spending numerous hours waiting on the line

For an hour and a half for what we would never get back

Joy, happiness, lots of rage and love

But there were no regrets

They're useless

Love happened here
In the very special little place
On the corner of west 44th and 8th
Love happened here
I'll never forget the times we spent
Sitting on the steps of the establishment

I don't want to go home tonight
I never want to leave your side
I'm never going to say goodbye
I'm not saying goodbye tonight

Love happened here
In the very special little place
On the corner of west 44th and 8th
Love, it happened here
I'll never forget the times we spent
Sitting on the steps of the establishment
Track Name: Oh, Kaylee
Where are you now?
Why aren't you in my arms?
Why can't you come and waste your time with me?

Kaylee why?
Why are you so perfect and beautiful?
And why do you have to be so far away from me?

Oh the things I would do for you
If you lived closer to me
And not across the country
You know I'll brave it through for you
I'll wait forever for you
As long as you love me

Oh Kaylee
Oh Kaylee
Oh Kaylee
Oh Kaylee

Why are you so wonderful?
Why do you want me?
What did I do to deserve someone so beautiful like you?

Two years or maybe even fifty years
I'll still be here waiting for you
I'll still love you as much as I do right now

The things I would do for you
If you lived closer to me
And not across the country
You know I'll brave it through for you
I'll wait forever for you
As long as you love me

Oh Kaylee
Oh Kaylee
Oh Kaylee
Oh Kaylee

I'll never ever let you go
I'm sending all my love to you
Send me a letter
I'll write your song

I don't want anybody else
I only want you
Just marry me
And we'll live happily

I want to spend my life with you
I want to spend my life with you
I want to spend my life with you
I want to spend my life with you
Track Name: Winter Story
Well you know, the sun is shining, and I'm all up and I'm bright and early
Gonna start my day with a jog or maybe a giant cup of coffee
Nothing's going to bring me down because I'm just
So motherfucking happy to be alive

I'm so happy to be alive today
I'm so thankful I get to experience shit like this
It's such a beautiful day today
And I'm just so motherfucking happy to be alive today

I'm just a normal kid from the town of Middletown
And I've never experienced this kind of fuck before
I think it's the medicine I'm on but, you know, well
Whatever this shit is, you know I fucking love it

I'm so happy to be alive today
I'm so thankful I get to experience shit like this
It's such a beautiful day today
And I'm just so motherfucking happy to be alive today

I'm so happy to be alive today
I'm so thankful I get to experience shit like this
It's such a beautiful day today
And I'm just so motherfucking happy to be alive today

I'm so happy to be alive today
I'm so thankful I get to experience shit like this
It's such a beautiful day today
And I'm just so motherfucking happy to be alive

Yeah! I'm so motherfucking happy to be alive today (Today I'm so happy to be alive)
Oh yeah, I'm so goddamn happy to be alive (I'm so happy to be alive)
Oh yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah I'm so (Fuck yeah fuck yeah fuck yeah)
Motherfucking happy to be alive today (I'm so fucking happy to be alive fuck yeah)
Track Name: Have You Seen Me Lately?
When I look at you
My heart turns blue
And I get a funny tickly feeling in my tummy

And my face grows numb
My senses fail
And I can't get a grasp of reality

I've never felt this way before
And I hate to admit it but
I think I'm falling in love with you

I think it might be your hair
Or your precious glowing eyes
Or that amazing heart melting smile that you wear

But I don't know what it is
That keeps me coming back to you
But there's something about you
That keeps me thinking of you

I've never felt this way before
And I hate to admit it but
I think I'm falling in love with you

I've never felt this way before
And I hate to admit it but
I think I'm falling in love with you
Track Name: Two Month Journey
I want to hold your hand in mine
As we fly up to the hands of time
I don't want to stop until we break past the sky

The only thing I want to do
Is fly around in space with you
I really want to spend my life
Exploring space with you

The universe wrapped around our heads
Just you and me and nobody else
We could fly past the stars and flip around in circles
Carve our initials into the moon

We could do whatever we wanted to do
No one can tell us what's right for you

The only thing I want to do
Is fly around in space with you
I really want to spend my life
Exploring space with you

We could do whatever we wanted to do
No one can tell us what's right for you

The only thing I want to do
Is fly around in space with you
Track Name: Dear Loser Chris
And now a dramatic reading of a real breakup letter from a real person

Dear loser, Chris

I thought you liked me you said it yourself I hate you
People only say you asked me out because you needed a date for the dance and that after the dance you would dump me
Well guess what bastard I dumped you cause you were thinking I that I cheated on you I didn't
So like idiots that you guys are and so smart that you are you called me a slut

I hung up on you because you toll me it on the phone because I guess you weren't man enough to tell me it in my face
I hate you and also guess what my mother hates you too
That she the one who put me up for this

You come to breakfast every morning and I ain't stupid you try to sit next to me and my lil bro who only seven years old
Hates you too and don't even know what you did and is always blocking your chair

Ha ha

I went out with another boy after you and after we were over you and idiot dared you even tried to ask me out again
I didn't break up with him for you okay

I hate you I've always hated you spreading to everyone that I cheated on you when you just got jealous that I used to talk to your friends to you're so jee-lowse you have automatically you automatically think I like them

Well guess maybe I do maybe I don't
Gotta problem you ain't my boyfriend anymore I don't have to tell you I like or who I am with and why
Got it I don't like you anymore
The other day you told me that I have to tell you who I like or who I am thinking of going out with
It's none of your business
Got that you loser

I hate you and I know you still like me but I don't like you
I don't care what your stupid friends say

You make me touch your hands for stupid reasons

You accidentally say you hugged me
I will never like you again
I hate you I hate you more than anything in this damn world

I'd rather date a spider or rat then you are so ugly and fat
And then saying that I loved you please see

You're such an ass wipe and bastert
I hate you

Well bye you piece of shit I have more things to do right now than remember

You
Track Name: Occupy Jason
I don't think I'll ever find someone to replace you
I don't think I'll ever love anyone as much as I love you

Occupy my mind
Rid me of these thoughts
Occupy my mind
Get my head out of the clouds
Help me out of this slump (out of this slump)
And I'll help in any way I can

I don't believe whenever anyone says I deserve much better than you
When I sit alone in my living room, all I think about is you

Occupy my mind
Rid me of these thoughts
Occupy my mind
Get my head out of the clouds
Help me out of this slump (out of this slump)
And I'll help in any way I can

I occupy myself with thoughts of you
And I occupy myself with thoughts of being with you

But I should occupy myself with thoughts that aren't about you
And I should occupy myself because I shouldn't be with you

Occupy my mind
Rid me of these thoughts
Occupy my mind
Get my head out of the clouds

Occupy my mind
Rid me of these thoughts
Occupy my mind
Get my head out of the clouds
Help me out of this slump (out of this slump)
And I'll help in any way I can

Occupy my mind [occupy my mind] (occupy my mind)
Occupy my mind [occupy my mind] (occupy my mind)
Occupy my mind [occupy my mind] (occupy my mind)
Occupy my mind
Track Name: Forgotten Memories
March 8th, 2012. 11:01 PM, Eastern Standard Time
This song is called Forgotten Memories
Completely improvised

I know you don't care about me anymore
I know you that stopped loving me
But did you know
Did you know you're ruining my life

How do I live without you now?
How do I cope without your love?
But did you know
Did you know you're ruining my life

I wish I could drink a magic potion
Just to forget about you
I wish I could close my eyes
And erase all memories of you

I think about you everyday
I think about what you could be doing right now
I can't forget the memories we had
And you're ruining my life

I'm so sick of crying every night
I'm so sick of wishing you were here
And I know I shouldn't love you but
I still do, and you're ruining my life

I'm so sick of crying every night
I'm so sick of crying every day
I want to forget these memories of you
God damn I want to fucking forget about you

Forget about you
Forget about you
Forget about you
Track Name: Noto-Nakajima Station
I'm so lonely without you
I don't know what to do with myself
I wish you were here right now
So you could hold me and tell me it's gonna be okay

How'd you forget everything we said
How could you leave it all behind
How could you leave me helpless like this
This level of sadness doesn't exist

We can't talk without fighting like kids
We couldn't stay together like this
I've lost any interest in life
And I can't take it anymore

Why'd you leave me when I need you the most
Why didn't you brave it through with me
I can't fight this fight alone
I can't fight this fight alone

I don't need you here and it's good you're there
Track Name: Concord Grape Jelly
Three thousand miles away
There was a girl I could call my own
She was perfect, she was everything I wanted
I fell deeply in love with her

I wanted to hold her at night
I wanted to bring her around with my friends
I wanted to take a thousand pictures with her
To show everybody how happy we were

And you know I fell in love with you
And you know I felt it true
And I know you never felt this way about me
You know I really fell in love with you

I never fall so hard in love but
I couldn't help myself when it came to you
Distance really isn't an issue, who really cares about it
I know you did but it never really ever stopped me

They say we fell too hard in love
And I know you never felt it real
It was a perfect love, no, it wasn't a perfect love but
It was the closest thing I've ever been to love

And you know I fell in love with you
And you know I felt it true
And I know you never felt this way about me
You know I really fell in love with you

Technology can bring me so far
But my money can't physically bring me to you
And I still miss you and I don't know why
And I still love you and I don't know why

I've met someone so much better than you
She treats me right and she loves me true
And I love her more than I've ever loved you
But I can't describe these feelings that I still have for you

I've written 7 songs all about you
Make it 8 including this one too
And unless we plan on getting back together
Call this a closure, my final song forever

It wasn't fun and no, it wasn't easy
I could've made it work but you never truly loved me
And I wish the best, a happy healthy future
You're just a deceiving liar with a really pretty picture

And you know I fell in love with you
And you know I felt it true
And I know you never felt this way about me
You know I really fell in love with you

I wanted to spend my life with you
Til death do we part was true
I'll sing your songs for someone else
Someone who loved me unlike you
I wasted all these months on you
You just made me feel blue

And I'll never love anyone
The way you didn't love me
It wasn't true

It wasn't true
It wasn't true
It wasn't true
It wasn't true
Track Name: For Someone Else
If I could, I would sing to you every night
I would be there by your side in the light

I'll sing to you with my terrible voice

So you can go dream and rejoice


I'll sing a song for you

A tiny improvised tune
Deep from the depths of my heart
Adapted from shooting stars

I'd lie in bed with your head to my chest
I'd sing so long, I wouldn't get much rest
But I wouldn't care, because I love you so
Within my songs, there is so much to know

I'll sing a song for you

A tiny improvised tune
Deep from the depths of my heart
Adapted from shooting stars

Every night, I dream of things that will be
Specifically, dreams of you and me
How I love you unconditionally
And how you speak so beautifully

And in my dreams, I know you're perfect for me
Or am I confusing dreams with reality
When I'm awake or I'm asleep or when I'm sleepwalking
I'm thinking about the perfect girl in my dreams

I'll sing a song for you

A tiny improvised tune
Deep from the depths of my heart
Adapted from shooting stars

I'll sing a song for you

A tiny improvised tune
Deep from the depths of my heart
Adapted from shooting stars



Just for you

Crinkle
