Track Name: Me and You
People are sending me get well soon balloons
You're breaking my heart and I'm building my own cocoon
The flowers on my corsage died
But we slow-danced 'till I lost my mind

You told that you had a good time
And a great evening
But now we're just staring at the same floor
Kicking our feet
Oh, I thought I saw a sparkle in your eye

So what can I say?
What can I do?
To break the walls between me and you?

I sang your favorite song
I knew that you would know it
I cut off all my hair
Just to see if you would notice

And I realize people like people like you
Charming, confident, casual, cool
People like people like you
And I do too

So what can I say?
What can I do?
To break the walls between me and you?

I'm sorry miscommunication is all we'll ever be
And I stopped letting myself look at you not looking at me
And I've tried, but you never ever let me in
I'm an open book, but your illiterate
You never gave me anything
Oh but I thought I saw a sparkle in your eye

So what can I say?
What can I do?
To break the walls between me and you?

So what can I say?
What can I do?
To break the walls between me and you?
Track Name: Couch Cushions
I'd like to believe that we're still sinking deep
Into the corners of your couch cushions
You'd like to imagine all your college classes
Made you so grown-up looking
You taught me to move, we tip-toed through the room
You made me feel famous
You will forever be my closest acquaintance

But we were watching all your favorite movies
Sitting there absolutely still
And I don't understand how we can make plans
And only talk about T.V.
But oh, what a wonderful waste of time

I'd like to pretend that I am still your houseguest
Wearing too much perfume
You'd like to believe I'm still sinking deep
Into the corners of your couch cushions
I'm watching you drive, holding the road
Your wrists were hairtied and braceleted
I held them both, not knowing we'd be close acquaintances

But we were watching all your favorite movies
Sitting there absolutely still
And I don't understand how we can make plans
And only talk about T.V.
But oh, what a wonderful waste of time

We hide inside our headphones
And speak when convenient or when we're bored
"Hey", that's all that we say, say, say anymore
But I know we don't know what we want

But we were watching all your favorite movies
Sitting there absolutely still
And I don't understand how we can make plans
And only talk about T.V.
But oh, what a wonderful waste of time
Oh, what a wonderful waste of time
Track Name: Weather
Deep conversations are never to be had
Between me and you
I was mistaken to think that our bond would hold
But it only lasted the week

Why can't we be more
Be more than mere acquaintances
Who only talk about the weather?

We climbed a mountain
Seen the most beautiful of views
Went to an island
Seen the world, but our bond never held

How many adventures will it take for us to stay together?
How many adventures will it take for us to stay together?

Why can't we be more
Be more than mere acquaintances
Who only talk about the weather?

Our friendship died
It only lasted one night
So its a good thing that
I'm not dependent on you for love

Our friendship died
It only lasted one night
So its a good thing that
I'm not dependent on you for love

Our friendship died
It only lasted one night
So its a good thing that
I'm not dependent on you for love

Why can't we be more
(Our friendship died)
Be more than mere acquaintances
(It only lasted one night)
Who only talk about the weather?
(So its a good thing that
I'm not dependent on your for love)

Why can't we be more
(Our friendship died)
Be more than mere acquaintances
(It only lasted one night)
Who only talk about the weather?
(So its a good thing that
I'm not dependent on your for love)

But is it your fault or is it mine?
Maybe it is my fault the stars don't shine anymore
Track Name: August Song
Who are you, but a rumor that I heard
But I never did believe?
And who was I, but a secret that you had to know
But knew you couldn't keep?
You've become a crowd
And I can't find my way out

This is my August song
Maybe I'll feel better in September

Who are you, but a rumor that I heard
But I never did believe?
And who was I, but a secret that you had to know
But knew you couldn't keep?
You've become a crowd
And I can't find my way out
I'm still in love with you
But I'd never say it out loud

This is my August song
Maybe I'll feel better in September
I'm waiting on a shooting star
To do its job and help me help you remember

You said it was just a lapse of judgment
But I heard you right the first time
You said it was just a lapse of judgment
Was that what it was?
Was that all it was?

This is my August song
Maybe I'll feel better in September
I'm waiting on a shooting star
To do its job and help me help you remember

You said it was just a lapse of judgment
But I heard you right the first time
You said it was just a lapse of judgment
Was that what it was?
Was that all it was?
