Step One 03:13
Lately, Ive been silent I let my number 2 do the speaking through the paper But the problem is They never get past the pages Or down to your ears So now you're walking out on me You're singing that step one is to forget my name My name and my number Forget my face and all the songs I sang you Im hoping step one dont surface today Cuz i just got the courage to say All the things that you wanna hear My dear Now you're making a case against me and my motives For all the things that I never did say But check the documents Check my paper trail Ive been saying what you're thinking now since last April You're singing that step one is to forget my name My name and my number Forget my face and all the songs I sang you Im hoping step one dont surface today Cuz i just got the courage to say All the things that you wanna hear My dear ...My Dear ...That you wanna hear, my dear You're singing that step one is to forget my name My name and my number Forget my face and all the songs I sang you Step one is to To put me in my place And leave to save face and go and go

Drivers Side 04:26
I know its been awhile since we've seen each other in person But my time is non-existant But i still miss you woman Im still out here writing songs for "nobody" but theyve got your name all over them please dont think any less of me See i just got lonely living out of a suitcase on the road every other day hoping every car that i pass by will have you in the drivers side i was in your area one day last winter but his car was still in the driveway so i packed my shit and got on my way I meant to write you a letter from Cincinnati when i got there i held on to that post card meant to send it off in better weather See i just got lonely living out of a suitcase on the road every other day hoping every car that i pass by will have you in the drivers side Im at home for the weekend the only time this season i hope this time we get it right and give me reason not to sleep well tonight

Distance 03:31
Distance it has been going good Its stuck by my side though it all Ive learned to love it so much its become another part of my day Distance it has been going well and im not gonna change what isnt wrong it gets better everyday as it grows in time and space So i keep my distance I keep my distance from you girl So i dont have to fall again Distance it is my only tool to keep an upper hand on you i use it to pass you by something that you do with more style Distance it is my only game its the only one that ive ever played i use it to convince myself that its not me and it wont work out anyway So i keep my distance I keep my distance from you girl So i dont have to fall again

Seasonal 03:09
We've been counting down til spring comes back around for the sun to hit my face again and the rain to come bellowing down Cuz it seems every winter i never see you face but come spring showers my phone begins to ring Cuz we're seasonal So we should go south before we got south Cuz you and me we need a place with no seasons No cold winter evenings And no reason to leave Cuz you and me we need a place with no seasons Just warm summer breezes Just you and me Every year we sit alone in this winter wonderland And every year we watch the snow pile up again Every december you pray for the snow to go away and every year i do the same Cuz we're seasonal So we should go south before we got south Cuz you and me we need a place with no seasons No cold winter evenings And no reason to leave Cuz you and me we need a place with no seasons Just warm summer breezes Just you and me

I see you moves and i cant say that i fault them I know youve got a lover you run to back home and id be lying if i didnt admit one to I know you think you move in mysterious ways baby but like the others youre the same i know you think i fall for the tricks youre playing but baby im just playing along We're chasing each other in bed every night and theres not an issue on which we fight but we're always thinking about another So why dont we call this what it is An intermediary love Someone to spend the day with and have a good time but we know that it wont last so we keep our bags packed cuz we'd leave each other fast and never even look back All your friends say hes a good guy and we should keep him around All my friends say we think you found the one you better hold her close but we both know what we are in it for We're chasing each other in bed every night and theres not an issue on which we fight but we're always thinking about another So why dont we call this what it is An intermediary love Someone to spend the day with and have a good time but we know that it wont last so we keep our bags packed cuz we'd leave each other fast and never even look back You sleep by my side every night and you know i toss and turn for another set of eyes just like you toss and turn for another guy So why dont we call this what it is An intermediary love Someone to spend the day with and have a good time but we know that it wont last so we keep our bags packed cuz we'd leave each other fast and never even look back

I aint seen you in two months and we aint even spoke in weeks guarantee the next time i see you we'll fall back into beat We've both been crossing the country we aint even slept in weeks the fact that i haven't heard from you really doesn't bother me Cuz it could be two months or two years or two weeks it doesn't matter to me Get a new man Move to Portland and never call if you please cuz when we get together we always fall back into beat Ive got some new songs to sing you and you've got new poetry guarantee the next time i see you we'll fall back into beat we've both been out here living seeing what we wanna see the fact that i forgot to call you really doesn't bother me Cuz it could be two months or two years or two weeks it doesn't matter to me Get a new man Move to Portland and never call if you please cuz when we get together we always fall back into beat And even if i begin to see you around a little more it really wont be much different than before Cuz it could be two months or two years or two weeks it doesnt matter to me Get a new man Move to Portland and never call if you please cuz when we get together we always fall back into beat
