Track Name: No Use
I wanna tell you something to get it out the way
I wanna be recovering, not going ever more astray
I can't explain my reluctance; I can't excuse my fear
I can't think of a reason you shouldn't be right here with me

Kick off your heels, I'll fix you something to eat
Or better yet, I'll order delivery
With you, I would have no use for all my anxiety
If only, if only the words would come to me

I wanna tell you something to put the ball in play
I want to find a moment with which to illustrate
The depths of my conviction that you're far from insane
And that all of your illusions would be soundly swept away, with me

Kick off your heels, I'll fix you something to eat baby
Or we can just go hungry
With you, I would have no use for all my anxiety
If only, if only the words would come to me
Track Name: Nothing Quite As Nice
i don't want you if i can't have you
i don't love you if you don't love me back
i love every other thing you do
i could take over your public relations

i don't want to tell you what to do
but i need for you to call me back
i could lighten up that load for you
i have lowered my expectations

i don't wanna but what else can i do?
i don't want to base a song in fact
but i gotta make it clear to you
we could have ourselves a situation

but i don't wanna if i don't get to
and i can't love you if you won't love me back
all's you gotta do is let me know
there's nothing quite as nice as letting go
Track Name: Sorry Emily
i'm sorry emily
i have to forget you before i can be friends with you
i'm not saying it's not a possibility down the line
but i can't do it now

i'm sorry emily
all those things that you told me about not getting too attached
and being self-sufficient, gotta do all those things myself
but i wish you the best
Track Name: Stale
i could get to know you
and come to love you so
i could get to know you
and come to love you so

i could get the hang of it, i know
i could even call you my own

i could get to know you
and come to love you so
i could get to know you
and come to love you so

i could get away with it, i know
how could i just stay here alone

when i could get to know you
and come to love you so?
i could get to know you
and come to love you so

i should just get on with it, i know
maybe i could call you my home

i could get to know you
and come to love you so
i could get to know you
and come to love you so

although i know you're not alone
i'm not about to let you go

i'm gonna get to know you
and you'll come to love me so
gonna get to know you
and you'll come to love me so
Track Name: Distinction
it's all over and done
the race has been run
i lost and he won
cleaned out the web i spun

i'm defeated and scarred
all calloused and hard
i didn't and he did
our great love was just that puppy shit
wasn't it?

and it was all retarded and screwed
could've sworn my love was true
and that i had to toil and cling
and lasso everything

your laughter, your grace
the smile on your face
i had to possess them or bust
to hell with both of us

and while i occasionally still believe
you're the only gal for me
i don't have to want you so i won't
i love you but you don't
Track Name: This Old Song
I feel like myself when I get set down
I feel like the old Sebastian again
I feel like singin' a new song to myself
'Bout how things still ain't happenin'

You are the latest and far from the greatest
To cast me by the wayside
The latest lie I've fed myself one too many times
The latest, deflatedest, most slanted rhyme
How I still wish you were mine


My dear guitar-slingin' unclaimed prize
It's me, the old Sebastian again
I'm callin' out your name, same as mine
I'm sorry things still ain't happenin'

I know you're the latest, bet you won't be the greatest
To dwell within that pale skin
And you're bound to win, 'cause it's you that I believe in
The latest, courageousest, you're right on time
And I'm so glad you're mine


I feel like myself when I get set down
I feel like the old Sebastian again
I feel like singin' this old song to myself
To remind me how life is ongoin'
Track Name: It'll Have To Do
how could i have let you slip away that night?
i dropped you at your grandpa's house and set out on that long drive
but try as i might, i can't recall making it home alright
feels like my foot's still pressing on the gas, seatbelt holding me tight

and how could you always fall for someone new
when you know that i've been waiting here for you for such a long time?
writing these songs, gently urging you along
i guess i had you pegged all wrong, though you had me just right

still it don't seem right for us to just hang out at christmastime
and act like everything is fine, wave another year by
i don't believe i was meant to be one of these
sad men who pretends he's happy, buries his feelings inside

and as for you, i guess this song will have to do
oh cassandra if you only knew just how much i've loved you
although our timing was bad, you're the greatest love i've ever had
now don't you think that's kind of sad?
Track Name: Someday Soon
a little introspection never hurt anyone
but i'd sure like to turn my attention to you
though this self-interrogation will never really be done
i just know that you could hand me a breakthrough

could i be there for you?
i'm ready to step into the fray
i might be right for you
someday soon, someday soon
Track Name: Mind Wants Publishing
mind wants publishing? mind don't write anything!
mind wants writer's share? mind doesn't even care!
mind wants more and more! i bet my mind could beat up yours!
mind wants 360? mind's not getting anything!
