Track Name: Moon + Stars
Want to give you the stars, all I've got is the moon.
O.M.G.

I know it's been a while since we talked.
To see, face to face, the disappointment in your smile.
All day, all night spent adding up the moments shared.
Fall up, get down when your expressions never fit.

Want to give you the stars all I've got is the moon.
Just a flickering light, just a rock in the sky.

I've tried so many times to do it right.
One way or another, I'm gonna get into your sight.
All day, all night spent talking through the door.
Fall up, get down when it doesn't make sense.

And every time that I would say things aren't playing out your way, you'd get upset and we would fall apart, trying to forget every part.

Want to give you the stars, all I've got is the moon.
Just a flicker of light, just a rock in the sky.
Every time it's complex, never runs like a line.
Smile while you say nothing more than goodbye.

And every time that I would say things aren't playing out your way, you'd get upset and we would fall apart, trying to forget every part.
Track Name: Slaves to the Trade
Once upon a time I had a lot of love, I had a lot of love.
Now and then again I used to give you some, I used to give you some.
When we were slaves to the trade, back when we were paid to behave, back when we were told what to say.
Hey there lonely one, you're in the city and you can't see the sun.
Hey there little girl, you're not a mother who can feel for the world.
Running low with the person you love, just a heartbeat away from buying a gun. So you bitch, moan, kick and shout. Put your heart where your head is and figure it out.
Track Name: Call Me Now
We were young when you used to call my name,
Every now and then I still act the same.
Did you really think that I would change,
Spend some time alone and rearrange?

Call me now and try to fill me in.
Even now I still can't tell a thing.

We don't stop but you don't seem to learn.
We were dumb, would do just about anything.
Sitting around doing nothing but live in a dream.
Do you really think that I would lie,
When I say that this was half the time?
Track Name: French Girl
Once in a while we were down,
Never too long till things came around.
I wasn't lost, you're never found.
Sitting around with nothing to show.

You say that you need it but you don't have the heart.
Thinking you mean well but your always "apart."

Oh my little French girl, why do you say that you need me?
Oh my little angel, why do you love me and leave me?

Calling through days, fighting through nights.
Kidding myself that we'll be alright.
Can't understand things cut so close.
Everyone else has you on there side.
Track Name: Just Getting Started
I don't know when I'm wasting time, it got a bit out of line.
Just when we figure it out... I've got to get another one.
I don't know when I've lost my mind, giving it a second try.
How did we not catch the signs?

This is not the end, in fact I'm just getting started.
Up until now everything seemed a bit meaningless.

It doesn't work when you start to lie.
You're never gonna figure it out.
Picking up the pieces you like,
try to make another disguise.
Track Name: Everybody Knows
I'm tired of monkey in the middle, time to move on to something else.
Taking the loving and the feeling, and giving it to someone else.
Everybody knows that you don't want to get shit done.
I'm tired of being like your devil, never giving me light of day.
Don't want to be another figure and be so easily erased.
Everybody knows that you don't want to get shit done.

We were told many times before, it gets cold if we open up those doors.

Everybody knows your name, everyone has seen your face
On TV, the movies I see, everybody knows your name.

I'm tired of monkey in the middle, time to move on to something else.
Taking the loving and the feeling, and giving it to someone else.
Everybody knows that you don't want to get shit done.
I'm tired of being like your devil, never giving me light of day.
Don't want to be another figure and be so easily erased.

Everybody knows your name, everyone has seen your face
On TV, the movies I see, everybody knows your name.

I see you, but you don't see me.
Track Name: Too Many Girls
You say you want to go to a place that's real, far away from anyone who doesn't catch the feel.
Bright lights, keep running, always up and awake.
It's great but kind of funny that you're leaving the states.
On a plane, got your ticket, hold it tight in your hand.
Got a plan, no time for thinking, getting closer to land.
So close, it's gonna happen, everyone's in the dark.
You're right, got what you wanted, no one knows that you're gone.
Can't do this to me now, no.
One too many girls going over, one too many guys going under.
It's not what's leaving me, it's what's leaving our country, when are you gonna be back?
