Track Name: Some Girls
I'm walking on down the street, there's a gaggle of girls making fun of me.
(I'm so used to it)
Turn a corner and I see my man, "Won't you buy me a drink 'cuz I'm feel in' lucky."

Some girls got everything.
Some girls got everything,
But not me. Not me.
Some girls got everything.
Some girls got everything,
But not me.

Here she comes, pulling up to the light, in her fancy car, with a red guitar in the back seat.
(She don't even know how to play it!)
I keep walking'. Got my boots on the ground.
No purchase necessary to be entertained by these clowns.

Don't need those shiny things.
You know I hate diamond rings.
Don't need that fancy car.
Just need this here guitar.

Some girls want everything.
Some girls want everything,
But not me. Not me.
Some girls want everything.
Some girls want everything,
But not me.

Here I stand, only forty years on, they're all washed-up while I'm still going strong.
(Yeah, you thought I'd be dead by now)

Some girls want everything.
Some girls want everything,
But not me. Not me.
Some girls want everything.
Some girls want everything,
But not me.
Track Name: Vertebrae
Are there wolves at the door?
Let them turn to grey.
Don't let them open the door.
Don't let them open the door.

I hear them calling, and I don't know why.
I see them falling form the sky.
They've got torpedoes and they're gonna send a few our way.

My heart is pounding, so slow and heavy.
I'm breathing dizzy, as you get ready.
The lighthouse darkens and I'm drawn further from your shore.

The lies they tell tell us make him jealous again.

The lies they tell us make him jealous.
he had a master plan, but his master plan has gone awry.
Track Name: First World Problems
Danger. Danger.
I'm getting old and maybe a little bit stranger.
So danger. I'd like to welcome you to my mid-life crisis.
You know admission's free, but you're not allowed to save me.
Just strangers.
Text me back a little later tonight. I said later. Much later.
I'm trying to get shit done.
You know that I'm no fun.
I'm not sure what happened.

Dial up the color of the roadside snapshot.
I need a reason to stick around.

Hater. I'm a hater.
I don't like anything that makes me feel stupid,
so waiter, would you be so kind as to fetch me another martini?
Cuz you know this therapy is so damn expensive.

Filter everything through black and white,
soften all the edges, so I can get some sleep.
I thought that I'd walk fearlessly through life,
but it seems I've lost my moxie.
It's a first world problem.

Follow me into my big, black cave.
We're really off the grid now.
We can go around naked.
I never thought I'd throw it all away,
to feel like I'm still breathing.
It's a first world problem.
First world problem.
First world problem.
Frist world problem
It's a first.
Track Name: Astronauts
Try to end the contact, but we smile on the street.
No more passing notes, meeting once a week.
Go about your business while I pray for rain:
"He will come back. He will come back."
Ask him if he's lonely, says he aches with it,
so every night I'm waiting for another trip...

To shorten the distance between astronauts.
Shorten the distance between astronauts.

Wanna travel with you to a sunny place,
See your babies cheering when you win the race,
buckle up beside you in some fast machine,
that gets us out of here.
Vibrations don't occur on every frequency,
so maybe you only wanna be with me...

To shorten the distance between astronauts.
Shorten the distance between astronauts.
Track Name: In Another Minute
You said you couldn't stay.
I wanted you to go away.
there's so much i want to do.
Arm's length away from me,
could you step closer please?
Let's see how well we do.
You show up unannounced,
swing in from out of town,
but I couldn't leave the room.
Now breathe as I get down,
and listen to the sound of the slow train.

In another minute I'll be in your arms.
In another minute we'll be gone.

Jupiter is shining on the hawk that flies at dawn.
He lay me dreaming on your bed.
You watched me in my sleep,
You knew that I'd go deep,
and for a moment you thought I was dead.
The science turns me on,
the motor hums along,
deciphering your wicked wink.
Leaving me little clues,
Observing as I lose my way to you.

In another minute I'll be in your arms.
In another minute we'll be gone.
