Track Name: Already Over
Can we pretend tonight will never end?
It's already over
When we depend on the kindness of our friends
It's already over

You and I
Could break away from everything we know
Close our eyes, and let the whole world go
On it's own in the dark now
Holding hands as we learn how to sleep sound

Can we pretend tonight will never end?
It's already over
When we depend on the kindness of our friends
It's already over

Can we pretend tonight will never end?
It's already over
Don't forget to send flowers to our friends
It's already over
Track Name: Last Call
Closing time again
Do you know where your friends are?
Have I ever met them?
You've been here since ten
But you've been drinking water
I'm still drinking gin

You told me to go
I asked you to stay
I never know if that's OK
I asked you to go
You told me to stay
I would have anyway

Closing time again
Do you know who your friends are?
Have I ever met them?
You've been here since ten
I saw you when you walked in
I might have a problem

You told me to go
I asked you to stay
I never know if that's OK
I asked you to go
You told me to stay
I would have anyway

Let's go
One last drink before we say goodnight
Last call
Make it two, I'm still alright to drive

You told me to go
I asked you to stay
I never know if that's OK
I asked you to go
You told me to stay
I would have anyway
Track Name: Nothing Left To Say
Let's stay out all night
We'll sleep in the morning
It's only Saturday
Let the sun shine bright
We'll stay curled up snoring
There's nothing left to say

Those were the days
Of Summertime
Of smokes and wine
And you by my side through the longest light
These are the days
It's Wintertime
You said goodbye to me
And I cried through the lonely night
Longest lonely night

I stayed out all night
You left in the morning
I watched you walk away
I tried to make it right
You gave me every warning
There's nothing left to say

Those were the days
Of Summertime
Of smokes and wine
And you by my side through the longest light
These are the days
It's Wintertime
You said goodbye to me
And I cried through the lonely night
Longest lonely night
Track Name: Lay Down
You said everything is fine
I asked you once
You answered
I asked you a second time
But you and especially I should know better
Tonight and for the rest of our lives

Till we lay down and die
Till we lay down and die
God knows you'll never be satisfied
Till we lay down and die
Lay down and die

I said everything is fine
You asked me once
You asked me twice
A sixth and a seventh time
But you and especially I should know better
Tonight is not the rest of our lives

Till we lay down and die
Till we lay down and die
God knows we'll never be satisfied
Till we lay down and die
Lay down and die
Track Name: Almost Cheating
Singing songs in minor keys
It's almost cheating
When you're as sad as me
I'm begging, pleading
For you to let me be
Won't you let me sing
My songs in minor keys

When you've taken our love
Dashed it to the floor
You say it happens all the time
And you don't know what I'm crying for

Singing songs in minor keys
It's almost cheating
When you're as sad as me
I'm begging, pleading
For you to let me be
Won't you let me sing
My songs in minor keys

Singing songs in minor keys
I'm almost cheating
To make you feel like me
Begging, pleading
So I'll just let you be
And I'll let you sing
Songs in minor keys
Track Name: Anywhere But Here
Sing me another song
About when we were young
And I'll try to sing along
But my voice is nearly gone

And I'm still waiting very patiently
For you to send me that postcard
Sincerely, Anywhere But Here

So I'll sing you a song
About when we were young
I know I'm right, wish I was wrong
But your singing days are done

And I'm still waiting very patiently
For you to send me that postcard
Sincerely, Anywhere But Here
Anywhere but here
Anywhere but here
Anywhere but here
Track Name: That Girl
Sticks and stones could break my bones
But you could never hurt me
I've singing all this time
But you've just never heard me

Sometimes this is how it ends
When I don't even care if could still be friends anymore
Because I'm already bored
So I'll let the world know
I had to let that girl go

Sticks and stones could break my bones
But you could never hurt me
I've been wasting all this time
But you just don't deserve me

Sometimes this is how it ends
When I don't even care if could still be friends anymore
Because I'm already bored
So I'll let the world know
I had to let that girl go
Track Name: Saddest Night
The saddest night I've ever known
Where the hell were you?
Why was I alone?
The saddest night I've ever seen
She was 22
And I was 17
The saddest night

The saddest night I've ever known
Where the hell were you?
Why was I alone?
The saddest night I've ever seen
She was 22
I'm still 17
The saddest night
