Track Name: I Do
When you’re told
That you gotta settle for someone like me
You gotta know I feel it in my jeans
Cause I’m mean
So don’t ask for directions from me please
I love you most
Would you say
That fate gave me a reason to get in your boat
If I sink it or fall overboard
Cause I might
Will that impress or show affection to you
Cause I’m right
I’m such a sucker please

I do I do I do I do I do I love you too
I do I do I do I do I do I do
I do I do I do I do I do I love you too
I do I do I do I do I do I do

Embarassing
A blemish that I just can’t hide
And I’m not
The most attractive person in the room
I should move
To another county that you’ve never been to
Uh uh
You’re such a sucker please

I do I do I do I do I do I love you too
I do I do I do I do I do I do
I do I do I do I do I do I love you too
I do I do I do I do I do I do

Please tell me I’m for sure in
Please tell me you’ll wait for me
By, by the streetlight
By, by the streetlight
By, by the streetlight
Tonight

I’m such a sucker please

I do I do I do I do I do I love you too
I do I do I do I do I do I do
I do I do I do I do I do I love you too
I do I do I do I do I do I do

Please tell me “I’m for sure in”
Please tell me you’ll wait for me
By, by the streetlight
By, by the streetlight
By, by the streetlight
Tonight

I do I do I do I do
(By, by the streetlight)
I do I do I do I do
(By, by the streetlight)
I do I do I do I do I love you too
(By, by the streetlight)
Tonight
Track Name: Babbling Idiot
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
Track Name: Mermaid
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
Track Name: Just Because I'm Blonde
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
Track Name: Squeeze Me
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
Track Name: This Addiction
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
Track Name: Dance Like a Maniac
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
Track Name: Saturday Morning
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
Track Name: City of Angels
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
Track Name: Jump Start This Heart
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
Track Name: Pack of Smokes
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
Track Name: Other Trucker
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
