Track Name: Live Comfortably
I heard somewhere that money is a gas
But I can't understand why everyone's running so fast
Away from happiness
I just want to live comfortably
As long as there's a roof over my head I will be happy
A run-on sentence to explain how I feel tonight
I'm seated and repeating things I'm grateful for in life
I love my family, my friends and myself
I love my dog, I love the house that I grew up in
But that town can go to hell
And I could go for hours bout' that girl I was in love with
But I wrote a separate song just for her

Oh I wrote a separate song just for her
Oh I wrote a separate song just for her

When did all this start?
When did you begin to think that I wasn't good enough?

I used to see the world in black and white
But then I tasted the rainbow and now I can't sleep at night
No that's not an innuendo, everyone's so sentimental
What happened to when words were just words and we were friends still?
I'm sorry please I meant no offense
I'll go sit in the corner and think of ways I can repent
I've made enough mistakes to forgive other people
I'm still working on myself, you're surely working on yourself too
And if you say we're done, we're done that perfectly fine
Just know that for a while I was willing to try

Just know that for a while I was willing to try
Just know that for a while I was willing to try
Just know that for a while I was willing to try
Just know that for a while I was willing to try

When did all this start?
When did you begin to think that I wasn't good enough?
When did all this start?
When did you begin to think that I wasn't good enough?
When did all this start? (This could be the end of us being friends)
When did you begin to think that I wasn't good enough? (But I think that's a wound I could mend)
When did all this start? (This could be the end of us being friends)
When did you begin to think that I wasn't good enough? (But I think that's a wound I could mend)
When did all this start? (This could be the end of us being friends)
When did you begin to think that I wasn't good enough? (But I think that's a wound I could mend)
When did all this start? (This could be the end of us being friends)
When did you begin to think that I wasn't good enough? (But I think that's a wound I could mend)
Track Name: Gasoline
Come lay in these sheets with me
We can douse our troubled thoughts in gasoline
Inhale the flame
Watch our firework display
Come lay in these sheets with me
We can douse our troubled thoughts in gasoline

Verbal boxing
We’re boxing each other with our words
Keep each other
On our toes

But this honesty
Creates uncertainty
Between you and me
In hopes of pure chemistry

Come lay in these sheets with me
We can douse our troubled thoughts in gasoline
Inhale the flame
Watch our firework display
Come lay in these sheets with me
We can douse our troubled thoughts in gasoline

If you’re alone
Would you let me know?
I could walk back
To your home

And piece together
What we own
And in the morning
We’ll help each other find our clothes

Come lay in these sheets with me
We can douse our troubled thoughts in gasoline
Inhale the flame
Watch our firework display
Come lay in these sheets with me
We can douse our troubled thoughts in gasoline

Shallow water jump right in

I've seen worse things

I've seen worse things

Politicians want to race towards something greater

I'd rather sit here on the couch writing songs

Or maybe you want to believe in me

And I can't leap tall buildings in a single bound

Tomorrow I'll wake up and everything will feel the same

That noone cares about

That you don't care about

Or maybe you want to believe

In super heroes jumping buildings


I'm just an average guy

And I just want average things

A stove in the kitchen

A room just for sittin' and watchin' tv

And I can't leap tall buildings in a single bound

But I can go to sleep knowing

Tomorrow I'll wake up and

Everything will be the same


Look in the mirror and

Punch through the glass

Cut up your hand so that

All the girls will think you're a bad boy

Play music so loud in your headphones

That everyone near you can hear you and fear you

When I see guys like you

I want to shed a tear


Cuz


I'm just an average guy

And I just want average things

A stove in the kitchen

A room just sittin' and watchin' tv

And I can't leap tall buildings in a single bound

But I can go to sleep knowing

Tomorrow I'll wake up and everything will feel the same


This system was made to mess me up

This system was made to interrupt

The things I've got goin' on

The things that I have been working so hard for

And I want to make my friends all happy

I want to be successful in ten years

I want to make my family proud

And I'm tryin' to figure out how

But

I'm just an average guy

And I just want average things

A stove in the kitchen

A room just sittin' and watchin' tv

And I can't leap tall buildings in a single bound

But I can go to sleep knowing

Tomorrow I'll wake up and everything will feel the same

Tomorrow I'll wake up and everything will feel the same

Tomorrow I'll wake up and everything will feel the same
