Wind up fast pitch crash no dice Won’t you see what’s in these eyes Try try to tell you I’m wanting Try try to formulate These words my heart is beating These words I dare to state I don’t mind When I’m around you Cause I can’t think twice Not even once Because I turn into a babbling idiot When you talk to me Yeah a babbling idiot Yeah a babbling idiot Cheeks flushed bright my thoughts digress Mind of mush photos undressed Search for cover About to bomb myself Is it over Just gotta fool myself I don’t mind When I’m around you Cause I can’t think twice Not even once Because I turn into a babbling idiot When you talk to me Yeah a babbling idiot Yeah a babbling idiot There’s something charming ‘Bout the way you stumble toward me clumsy So don’t go changing Be that boy who still adores me blindly Who still adores me blindly Who still adores me blindly Try try to tell you I’m wanting Try try to formulate These words my heart is beating These words I dare to state, 2, 3, 4 I don’t mind When I’m around you Cause I can’t think twice Not even once Because I turn into a babbling idiot When you talk to me Yeah a babbling idiot I don’t mind When I’m around you Cause I can’t think twice Not even once Because I turn into a babbling idiot When you talk to me Yeah a babbling idiot I’m a babbling idiot I’m a babbling idiot I’m a babbling idiot

Mermaid 03:31
You know I can’t survive If you take me out of water I’ll be your mermaid Don’t hang me out to dry Oh oh oh Blue deep my obsession Drink my tears when you’re gone I need some attention Fly to your dimension You say we’ve got nothing in common You say we won’t live too much longer Because I can’t survive If you take me out of water I’ll be your mermaid Don’t hang me out to dry Oh oh oh Sunbeams splash on your face I’m still finding my place Flippers aren’t for walking My converse are broken You say we’ve got something in common I say let’s not live to ignore it You know I can’t survive If you take me out of water I’ll be your mermaid Don’t hang me out to dry Oh oh oh We could move To California No one tells us what to do Not a part of the USA No one tells us what to do And I’m natural, natural, essential Natural, natural, natural, essential Blue deep my obsession Drink my tears You know I can’t survive If you take me out of water I’ll be your mermaid Don’t hang me out to dry Oh oh oh Don’t hang me out to dry Don’t hang me out to dry Don’t hang me out to dry Don’t hang me out to dry Natural, natural, natural, essential Natural, natural, natural, essential

Got an IQ higher than 25 Bet you didn’t even think that ‘cause of my hair Watch me do basic math Somehow I survive to pay my bills Is she ditzy Is she with it Is she scattered up like a snow globe Only takes one One of me to Screw in a freaking light bulb As if (oh oh oh oh oh) As if (oh oh oh) That’s why you’re thinking that I’m not smart Didn’t get the bad joke Acting kinda clueless Sunning up on the beach Always losing my keys Never pay for Jameson Latest to the party Head up in the sky Marilyn Monroe said I should have more fun so She was right I don’t’ care Care what you think Just because I’m blonde Just because I’m blonde I know a Brazilian’s not a number and Polypeptide isn’t a type of toothpaste Watch me get an oil change They won’t convince me I need brand new breaks Not an Airhead That’s just candy When I want to sugar stuff my face Superficial Just a little But I’ll never be your damsel in distress As if (oh oh oh oh oh) As if (oh oh oh) That’s why you’re thinking that I’m not smart Didn’t get the bad joke Acting kinda clueless Sunning up on the beach Always losing my keys Never pay for Jameson Latest to the party Head up in the sky Marilyn Monroe said I should have more fun So she was right I don’t’ care Care what you think Just because I’m blonde Just because I’m blonde I’ve never fooled anyone before I’ve let people fool themselves They didn’t bother to find who or what I was Instead they’d invent a character for me I wouldn’t argue with them They were obviously loving somebody I wasn’t It takes a smart brunette to play a blonde It takes a smart brunette to play a dumb blonde As if (oh oh oh oh oh) As if (oh oh oh) That’s why you’re thinking that I’m not smart Didn’t get the bad joke Acting kinda clueless Sunning up on the beach Always losing my keys Never pay for Jameson Latest to the party Head up in the sky Marilyn Monroe said I should have more fun Yeah she was right I don’t’ care I don’t care what they say Everybody knows it Never gonna change me It’s just hair don’t be dumb Dumb like a brunette Just kidding Just because I’m blonde It’s just because I’m blonde It’s just because I’m blonde It’s just because I’m blonde Just because I’m blonde

Squeeze Me 03:12
Crisscrossing what’s the path less traveled Fresh footsteps on your track I paddle upstream So you’ll see me falling downtown Where you’ll meet me That jacket that you left in my car Still lying with the stains from spilling ice cream Like we’re sixteen Falling for me Going steady Just hold my breath till then Cause it’s 1am and it’s colder than outside Here I am just trying way too hard Can you squeeze me one last time But I can’t pretend I’m a terrible liar See right through but I’m dying inside so Can you squeeze me one last time Exqueeze me Baguette and some wine we’re under The Eiffel Tower where we’re plotting sunny Future babies In each arm a Happy family Little yellow house with palm trees Suitcases half packed for escaping Mondays With the World A’s Riding airplanes Like they’re taxis Just hold my breath till then Cause it’s 1am and it’s colder than outside Here I am just trying way too hard Can you squeeze me one last time And I can’t pretend I’m a terrible liar See right through but I’m dying inside so Can you squeeze me one last time Is it hot or is it me on fire Is it wrong to need that touch sometimes Cause it’s 1am and it’s colder than outside Here I am just trying way too hard Can you squeeze me one last time And I can’t pretend I’m a terrible liar See right through but I’m dying inside so Can you squeeze me one last time One last time

I’m a good girl Sitting waiting Limelight blistered shoulders facing Playing pig pen Can’t undo them Midnight clip clop I’m escaping Making quick sand With your quick hands Fall out the broken window Slow glow Asteroids burning mayhem Snow globe Bottled up my happy ending You’ve gotta tell me You’ve gotta tell me now What can I do to fix it Scratch this itch this addiction You’ve gotta tell me You’ve gotta tell me now What can I do to fix it Scratch this itch this addiction Give a quick twirl On the rip curl Ride along passed sober boulders Heat lightning Thoughts fighting Try to catch the falling fever Bridge the gap and Give a hot damn Wading in troubled waters Solo Thousand miles the wrong direction Snow globe Bottled up my happy ending You’ve gotta tell me You’ve gotta tell me now What can I do to fix it Scratch this itch this addiction You’ve gotta tell me You’ve gotta tell me now What can I do to fix it Scratch this itch this addiction Tongue tied up Fly oh try can’t keep thieves waiting My eyes are Burning bleary fire making Message bottles Lost in tide pools Hear those sirens calling For you Slow glow Asteroids burning mayhem Snow globe Bottled up my happy ending You’ve gotta tell me You’ve gotta tell me now What can I do to fix it Scratch this itch this addiction You’ve gotta tell me You’ve gotta tell me now What can I do to fix it Scratch this itch this addiction (Tell me now) You’ve gotta tell me You’ve gotta tell me now (Tell me now) What can I do to fix it (Fix it) Scratch this itch this addiction (This addiction) You’ve gotta tell me (Tell me now) You’ve gotta tell me now (Tell me now) What can I do to fix it (Fix it) Scratch this itch this addiction (This addiction) Tongue tied up Fly oh try can’t keep thieves waiting My eyes are Burning bleary fire making for you

You better bust it Better bust a move Like Young MC in the 80’s Better shake it Hippy shake with tie dye Freak out trippy I’m waiting Like a cheer girl Like a punk Like you got ants in your pants Lookin for love Lose your senses Lose you cool ‘Cause you don’t give a what if you look like a fool So Dance like a maniac Don’t be so boring Now Dance like a maniac Don’t be so boring In bikinis At the beach Just shake those coconuts right outta the trees In your bedroom At a show Just do it with yourself Like you’re Billy Idol So be the hostess With the mostess I like it when you make it flirty Raise your glasses Break your glasses You really did it Oh have mercy Dance like a maniac Don’t be so boring Now Dance like a maniac Don’t be so boring Don’t cool me down Don’t cool me down Don’t cool me down Don’t cool So Dance like a maniac Don’t be so boring Now Dance like a maniac Don’t be so boring So dance like a maniac Don’t be so boring Now Dance like a maniac Don’t be so boring Don’t cool me down Don’t cool me down Don’t cool me down Don’t cool

Shades on bed head sun’s creeping up So you’re creeping out You got your smirk on Head pounds six rounds then we hit the floor Sleeping on the floor In some stranger's house Lookin pictures on my phone What’s his name again What’s her name Oh God What have I done Again Saturday morning Don’t you walk away Don’t you walk away from me it’s the walk of shame Don’t you walk away Don’t you walk away Don’t you walk away from me it’s the walk of shame Flirt flirt that look What’s your favorite game The way you say my name The way you touch my waist Rides here in we go Damn what a show Where we going now You just never know What have we done Again Saturday morning Don’t you walk away Don’t you walk away from me it’s the walk of shame Don’t you walk away Don’t you walk away Don’t you walk away from me it’s the walk of shame Initials in fresh cement If only I could remember in which state we met Everybody knows by your guilty face Continental breakfast your presence graced Saw you dunk into the bunk Then we cheered you on Girl get it on Saturday morning Don’t you walk away Don’t you walk away from me it’s the walk of shame Don’t you walk away Don’t you walk away Don’t you walk away from me it’s the walk of shame Saturday morning Don’t you walk away Don’t you walk away from me it’s the walk of shame (Don’t you walk away) (Don’t you walk away) Don’t you walk away from me it’s the walk of shame Saturday morning Saturday morning Saturday morning Saturday morning

Young love Throw in some dumb luck But not scared enough To turn around Gotta prove We belong here Home sweet home The sirens screaming one block over ‘cause we’re leaving far behind all the kids from the small town The cheerleaders and jocks and the guy from the K-mart Drive til the sun set Didn’t get a round trip I don’t need a reason I don’t need a membership Walking down 7th street but I’m not worried Got a key between my knuckles like a switchblade Bullocks Wilshire where we haunt the night like devils Dirty city City of Angels Late nights Whiskey born fights Hit the taco truck Then we’ll subway home On the Red Line Breathing smog and smoke 40oz of love In brown bags of hope We’re taking home ‘cause we’re leaving far behind all the kids from the small town The cheerleaders and jocks and the guy from the K-mart Drive til the sun set Didn’t get a round trip I don’t need a reason I don’t need a membership Walking down 7th street but I’m not worried Got a key between my knuckles like a switchblade Bullocks Wilshire where we haunt the night like devils Dirty city City of Angels Tell me what you came here for Dance around and clear the floor Neighbor falls you pick them up Skank you mosh you circle up No one’s special no one cares Don’t hold it back nobody cares Suck it up nobody cares Suck it up nobody cares ‘cause we’re leaving far behind all the kids from the small town The cheerleaders and jocks and the guy from the K-mart Drive till the sun set Didn’t get a round trip I don’t need a reason I don’t need a membership Walking down 7th street but I’m not worried Got a key between my knuckles like a switchblade Bullocks Wilshire where we haunt the night like devils Dirty city City of Angels Walking down 7th street but I’m not worried Got a key between my knuckles like a switchblade Bullocks Wilshire where we haunt the night like devils Dirty city City of Angels

When I woke up this morning Another night with no holding I lie awake bed sheets I’m warming So I’ll dream of the nights Bodies so entwined The seasons pass Our Spring will Jumpstart this heart Beating slow, out of rhythm Life or death in your hands and words So raw, left unwritten Oh jumpstart this heart When I look in the mirror Oh how can you see her Lifelines and spots Roadmaps of living Say “Hey there’s my girl” So I stumble and fall I’d die to hear those words oh Jumpstart this heart Beating slow, out of rhythm Life or death in your hands and words So raw, left unwritten Oh jumpstart this heart It tears me apart Go back to the start Cause it tears me apart Take me back to the start Back to the start Go back to the start Yeah I woke up this morning Still sweaty from holding And half asleep a smile forming Still dream of the nights Bodies so entwined The seasons pass Hot Summer Jumpstart this heart Beating slow, out of rhythm Life or death in your hands and words So raw, left unwritten So jumpstart this heart (Jumpstart this heart) Jumpstart this heart (Tears me apart) Jumpstart this heart (Oh jumpstart this heart) Jumpstart this heart

Where you going honey Tell me where you’re running She’s sayin that she’s going out for a pack of smokes Never planning on returning to her husband Got a ticket going West on a bus to the coast Oh yeah we’re a one car family and If you don’t count the broken car in our drive Staying inside we’ve got nothing to hide But you never underestimate the ones that you love Where you going honey Tell me where you’re running She’s sayin that she’s going out for a pack of smokes Never planning on returning to her husband Got a ticket going West on a bus to the coast Real easy just trying to stay alive And the doctor says you gotta try to get out Easy peasy vitamins save your life But she knows that there’s something more to live for Where you going honey Tell me where you’re running She’s sayin that she’s going out for a pack of smokes Never planning on returning to her husband Got a ticket going West on a bus to the coast No more kissing Conscious emissions Less decisions How about that Wake me up later Get me out of here See you on the flip side Of this life Where you going honey Tell me where you’re running She’s sayin that she’s going out for a pack of smokes Never planning on returning to her husband Got a ticket going West on a bus to the coast Where you going honey Tell me where you’re running Tell me where you’re running Never planning on returning to her husband Got a ticket going West on a bus to the coast

He should get up and fight Go nowhere left to turn but forward Broken glass that hits the floor 7 years bad luck is over The freeway empties Got a straight shot passed your enemies Hot breath Cold sweat Cross two fingers and take that step Because you’re brave You won’t let some stupid other trucker Come along and knock you down (knock you down) Because you’re brave You know I’m up in your corner And I’m here to watch you win this round So burn it to the ground Pull my heartstrings down Waves that crash will always come back so Kill it love She’s been up all night 3am her brain's in circles Just deafening silence Step outside the smoke is burning Her tank is empty Today she made some enemies Cold feet Hot mess Ripped up grungy babydoll dress Because you’re brave You won’t let some stupid other trucker Come along and knock you down (knock you down) Because you’re brave You know I’m up in your corner And I’m here to watch you win this round So burn it to the ground (burn it to the ground) Pull my heartstrings down (pull my heartstrings down) Waves that crash will always come back so Kill it love I’m pacing waiting You’re chasing a dream Hang on boy Hanging by a thread She’s not a beauty queen Stomach drops like confetti I know you’ve got it Got it in the bag The bag Because you’re brave You won’t let some stupid other trucker Come along and knock you down (knock you down) Because you’re brave You know I’m up in your corner And I’m here to watch you win this round So burn it to the ground (burn it to the ground) Pull my heartstrings down (pull my heartstrings down) Waves that crash will always come back so Kill it love Kill it love Kill it love Just kill it love
