Track Name: Train Ride Recollections
Two more seconds
& I'll get on the train
cross right over
I'm already going
You look at me across the station
We're full of it
when we say goodbye

Whoa, whoa

Two more seconds
I'll get off the train
Been standing in line
I'm ready to cross over
into a station
new city
new strangers
every time I blink
I'll try not to think of you

I was so lucky just to have you at the time
I was so lucky and we had a good time
I was so lucky just to have you in my life
I was so lucky and we didn't prove nothing

Remember that time when you just showed up
And you took me out dancing
You bit my lip
We went in the back alley
You said, no thanks,
I think you're too small to go to jail
All our friends said, take it easy,
I said, how can we? (whoa, whoa)
We weren't born that way
We weren't born that way

I was so lucky just to have you at the time
I was so lucky and we had a good time
I was so lucky just to have you in my life
I was so lucky and we didn't prove nothing (repeat)
Our love didn't prove anything
Track Name: Defense
Your girlfriend is gonna kill me
At least that's what she just told me
But I have no good defense for
liking my friends

So don't look for me
I've gone away for a while
to another planet
I told them all about you
you are someone to remember
And I may never materialize
I may not come back alive
I'll just blow this way, then that,
eyes averted

And I'm just all wrong
'cause you have a lover
but I enjoy your company
so here's to being near each other

Now your girlfriend's gonna kill me
At least that's what she just told me
But I have no good defense
for liking you
I'm just falling like snow to the ground
I filled up around you
And now I'm coming down
Now I'm coming down
Now I'm coming down
Track Name: Not Be Lonely
My good friend said summer days
are just meant for rain
When I walked her home that night,
dawn was looking over my shoulder
saying, what you gonna do with another day
don't be shy, just show me
My bed always seems to smell like
someone else's sleep
and I'm driving 'round the bend
so it can't be me
I'm driving 'round the bend
My wheels are fast and wet
I'm looking up ahead
I will not be lonely

And all my wildest dreams,
only my wildest dreams, all my wildest dreams
I sing that chorus to myself right out of this city
My good friend said she gave her heart to a one and only
While I cannot make a bond of love
And I am so young
I am so young
I am so young
I am so young
Marry some other girl
I don't know how to love

When I walk home at night
dawn's just looking over my shoulder
saying, what you gonna do with another day,
don't be shy, just show me

I say only wildest things
