Track Name: Here's Lookin' At You, Kid.
of all the gin joints
in all the towns
in all the world
i walked in hers
and i saw a face
that could launch
a thousand ships
or any old cliche
i always thought
it could be
someone who
unexpectedly
had a brand of trance
with just one glance
overwhelmingly

so don't be afraid
when things aren't so
black and white
cause there's grey in everything

of all the gin joints
in all the towns
in all the world
i walked in ours

so don't be afraid
when things aren't so
black and white
cause there's grey in everything
and i see the silver lining
Track Name: Falling in the Dark
can i be frank?
you can choose your own name
i was always a fan of maria christina
but hey, lets have ourselves a drink
a little tonic tangueray
i was always a fan of the vodka
but things have changed

and now we don't fall down
or bump our heads at night
two and home and six more down
another few in sight
every time we try to leave
i'll always pick a fight

cause we've been falling in the dark

and now it's home
one more debaucherous trip
to the bar that we frequent
that certain night of the week
Track Name: Two Bottles
two bottles of our
favorite pinot noir
would certainly find us
huddled in our own arms
this i know
for sure
if my hands were more apt
i'd build up a great wall
to shield my city with cards
anticipating the call
yea, i know it all

the list goes on
of the things that i want to say
had a feeling that you'd sway

but you followed suit
you turned your cheek the other way, girl
you always knew
i'd be the one to walk away, no
we must have grew
at least one of us did, anyway…
and it was you

i missed the taste of your lips
the second that you woke up
those bittersweet memories
say "buddy, you really fucked up"
Track Name: Barside Casanova
dark camouflage
smeared around his sinking eyes
she's on to him
he fishes her with lies
about his former life
before retired
how his greedy wife
set the house on fire

"i'm all alone"
he whispers in her ear
he'll sing the song
he knows she wants to hear

seven years have passed
she's birthing his fourthborn
still a bachelorette
he's fucking in the thorns
of another man's wife
libido on fire
given her the same old
hook and wire

we're all alone, we're all alone
Track Name: Thanks, Goodnight.
her cabaret
her swift melee
hey there little fantasy
come and set the scene
i'm gonna take her home tonight
and i was right, i was right
drank enough to dance my way
to another game of i seek,

you hide under my sheets
in fright that i won't call you
and say that we'll be good
be good tonight
so thanks, goodnight
thanks, goodnight

now it's 3am
she's still kissin' me
and it's really sweet
but i need some sleep
before i choke a bitch tonight
that's not right, that's not right
you're all gonna hate this song
cause we're always wrong
so go ahead and

lie under my sheets
in fright that i won't call you
and say that we'll be good
be good tonight
so thanks, goodnight
thanks, goodnight

your lips so sweet, i want you naked
your lips so sweet, i wanna taste it
under my sheets
under my sheets tonight
and i won't call you tomorrow
we'll be good, but not tonight
so thanks, goodnight
thanks, goodnight
