The Thick Of It

You jump in cabs with empty pockets
You’re always running somewhere late
You left the house but didn’t lock it
You never call me before eight

You say it’s just to get out
Yeah it’s just to get out
Out of the thick of it
And now you’re saying you’re proud
Yeah you’re saying you’re proud
We’re all getting sick of it, yeah

Instead of crying at the table
Instead of giving other names
Instead lying that you’re stable
Instead of pushing it away

You say it’s just to get out
Yeah it’s just to get out
Out of the thick of it
And now you’re saying you’re proud
Yeah you’re saying you’re proud
We’re all getting sick of it, yeah

‘Cause you’re young
And you think
That you might
Not settle down at all

‘Cause you’re young
And you think
That you might
Not settle down at all

Baby, we’re not on call
Baby, we’re not on call
Baby, we’re not on call
For you

Baby, it isn’t all
Baby, it isn’t all
Baby, we’re not on call
For you

Kill The Camera

Long nights
Beat up leather shoes
Catch the last train
Best I can do

You wait
Up for me
Hear me out
Before we sleep

Kill the camera
Turn off the flash
Let the moment
The moment last

Pick your head up
What can you see?
Lost you out there
Right next to me

You wait
Up for me
Hear me out
Before we sleep

Kill the camera
Turn off the flash
Let the moment
The moment last

Listen up!
You gotta give it up!

Kill the camera
Turn off the flash
Let the moment
The moment last

Don’t wait up
To waste my time
Don’t wait up
To waste me time

Romania

Strung up and run over
Can I still catch up tonight?
Don’t feel any closer
Bless this heartrace, bless this light

With your hand in mine
It doesn’t feel like such a fight
With some luck and time
It all might fall in line just right

Everyone over there
Has got something perfect
And something to offer
If I look, if I stare
They’ll see all the holes
And all the chinks in my armor

We all need a shoulder
Can I borrow yours tonight?
We’re all getting older
And tomorrow’s got my mind

With your hand in mine
It doesn’t feel like such a fight
With some luck and time
It all might fall in line just right

Everyone over there
Has got something perfect
And something to offer
If I look, if I stare
They’ll see all the holes
And all the chinks in my armor

My armor
My armor
My armor
My armor

Everyone over there
Has got something perfect
And something to offer
If I look, if I stare
They’ll see all the holes
And all the chinks in my armor

My armor
My armor
My armor
My armor

September

What happened to September?
What happened to the money that I made?
The last thing I remember
We were all still lying in the shade

Back in my room
Right before you said “We’re through”
I spoke too soon
I said my only hope was you

Let go
Let go
Let go

Let go
Let go
Let go

What happened to my old friends?
What do you say about our town?
It’s harder to admit that
I’m the only one who’s still around

Back in my room
Right before you said “We’re through”
I spoke too soon
I said my only hope was you

When it’s late
We can drive to the place
Out on the river
With the stage inside
And the girl we used to love
We can lie and say
That we’re doing much better
Than the guy she’s with
Or quietly get drunk

Back in my room
Right before you said “We’re through”
I spoke too soon
I said my only hope was you

This Time

Oh my god
Where have you been?
The sun’s coming up
And it’s 5am

Leave my keys
I need my car
How’d things ever
Get this far?

If you need love
Go find love
But don’t drag me down this hole
If you need love
Go find love
But you won’t drag me down no more

This time I’m taking my
This time I’m taking my
This time I’m taking my
Taking my own advice

This time I’m taking my
This time I’m taking my
This time I’m taking my
Taking my own advice

How many times did I take you back?
How many times did I take you back?

Every time you swear you’ll change
But this scene always ends the same
Least I know, I’m out the door
I can’t take it anymore

If you need love
Go find love
But don’t drag me down this hole
If you need love
Go find love
But you won’t drag me down no more

The sun’s up
I see your face (said “how did it get this far?”)
The sun’s up
I see your face (I told myself, “this time no.”)

The sun’s up
I see your face (said “how did it get this far?”)
The sun’s up
I see your face (I told myself, “this time no.”)

This time I’m taking my
This time I’m taking my
This time I’m taking my
Taking my own advice

This time I’m taking my
This time I’m taking my
This time I’m taking my
Taking my own advice

How many times did I take you back?
How many times did I take you back?

(I told myself “this time no.”)
