Track Name: Driveway
I could barely believe the love I'd found
It made me say, 'I guess I'm all grown up now'
But a moment later my jaw dropped to the ground
She'd pulled into my driveway just to turn around

If you don't want me, I'd rather not ask
Emotions get the best of me, and I the worst of them
The truth makes me wanna pretend
D'ya want me to not ask?

I could drink a case of you, I still might not get full
But if I just walk away, I won't look like a fool
Well maybe I'm afraid to lose, to try, to get, and to have
But I'll catch you later on, screamin' from the past

Emotion gets the best of me, and I the worst of it
The truth is full of shit
D'ya want me to not ask?
Don't you want me to not ask?

I traveled the world, just lookin' around
Then she came and found me on solid ground
But that's when I heard my least favorite sound
She pulled back out my driveway, she was just turnin' around

Once again I sang a song not knowing what it meant
You were sent to enlighten me, weren't you?
Once again I wrote a song without believing in it
And you came to convince me, didn't you?

You'll leave me in the dust
But I am not as I was
I am better off because
Now the song runs in my blood
And my hope is gone for good

I could barely believe the love I'd found
Couldn't help but say, 'I guess I'm all grown up now'
But to this day, I can't wrap my mind around it
She pulled into my driveway just to turn around
Track Name: Responsibility
when i look at you
all i can see is all the work i'll have to do
to even half-assedly try
i'm much too insecure to deal with this uncertainty
so i'll have to be a man and set you free

i can't deal with it,
not knowing exactly how you feel every minute of the day
are you going my way?
i'll go around
see you in my dreams

when i talk to you it feels like work
it's almost all that i can do
to even look into your eyes
i'm much too smart for you and you are much too pretty for me
so i'll have to be a man and set you free

i can't deal with it,
not knowing exactly how you'll feel every second of every day
are you going my way?
i'll go around
see you in my dreams

the memory will eventually move me to action
on something on which the sentiment doesn't apply
i'll anxiously await the right reaction
so anxiously so as not to let the time pass by

now tell me do you really want to be with me, completely?
i didn't think so, pretty baby
it's not our time

when i'm next to you
i just feel guilty for the work you'll have to do
to stand here by my side
i'm much too immature to take responsibility
so i'll have to be a man and set you free
Track Name: Love Not Really
I don't really need you to be happy
I just want to take you home with me
Like a pretty parrot at the pet shop
You were built to fly across the sea

But maybe it's not in you to be out there
And maybe I could shelter

From those who'll never love you for who you are
But only for repeating after them
I could keep the whole you all to myself
Feed you seeds and crackers from my hand

'Cause maybe it's not in you to go out there
In hot pursuit of your ideal

But is this real love?
Is love real?
Is it really attainable?
Is it really free and blind?
Or are those all lies?
I don't know, but

I don't really need for you to love me
I just want to take you home with me
Like a friendly ferret in the pet shop
I could show you off for company, but maybe it's not

Appropriate for me to speak for you
So go on and weigh the pros and cons yourself
I'm no better than a stray dog seeking shelter
Maybe I'm the one that needs your help

'Cause maybe it's not in me to stay out here
Peeping in all the windows
Scanning for a glimpse of innocence
That I could funnel all my frustration into

But is this real love?
Is love real?
Is it really attainable?
Is it really free and blind?
And could you really be mine?

And could I be really be yours?
Could we really be one?
And when it's not new anymore, could it really still be fun?
Might we really just wind up chained up right her side by side
For what's left of our lives? I don't know.

But I don't really expect to be happy
I just really want to take you home with me
Like a helpless hamster in the pet shop
I think you could be just what I need
Track Name: Damn Me
damn your ability to make everything alright
and curse you for holding out on me
well damn me for trying so hard
god damn me for not trying hard enough
curse me for being so far away

damn your ability and lack of willingness
to assist in my ceasing to be a mess
well damn me for writing this song
god damn me for not knowing you well enough
for me to have anything else to say

damn my fragility, curse your stubbornness
maybe i should just give it a rest
well damn me for playing this part
god damn you for playing yours all too well
and shame on me for believing in you still
Track Name: I'm the One I Love
I'm the one I love

What am I waiting for
Anybody else for?

I'm the one I love

Now I know for sure
Your leaving only makes me love me more

I'm the one I love

I've been with me all along
With my outstretched hands
And my long-term plans

Still I gazed out and beyond
Falling on deaf ears and squeezing stones

But all the years and loves and songs
Lie before me
And seem to spell it out

My epic quest was all in vain
I've never been alone, and now I know

I'm the one I love
