Track Name: BJ Lee
BJ Lee wasn’t like you and me, he had different opinions on how things should be
He grew tired of our society so he went off to live on his own in the trees

Yeah he went into the forest to live off of the land
Yeah he went into the forest with nothing but his own hands

BJ Lee was reported missing cuz he hadn’t been seen by his friends or family
They searched the woods and they marked every tree
with a pink piece of ribbon to show where they’d been

Yeah they went into the forest to see who they could find
Yeah they went into the forest but bj preferred to hide

A rancher checking cattle that spring found bjs body propped up by a tree
He laid to rest not more than 30 feet from a pink piece of ribbon from the search party

He went into the forest to live off of the land
He went into the forest and ended up in god’s hands
Track Name: Have A Nice Life
I know your secrets, I know everything you try to hide from me
I know you want him, and I know you don’t want me

Should’ve changed your email password so something I couldn’t guess on the first try
Have a wonderful life with that bastard
Remember the better times when you were my wife
Have a nice life

You don’t belong here, you belong somewhere on some soft secluded beach
Missed what was wrong here
Missed what was wrong until you were too far to reach
Track Name: Broken Strings
I’ve done it all, all that I could do
I did it all, did it all for you

I said it all every way I could
I said it all hope you understood

Broken amps
Broken vans
Broken strings
Broken dreams are all I have to show

I’ve seen it all, all that I can see
I’ve seen it all, I’ve seen everything

I’ve sang it all every way I could
I’ve sang it all hope you understood

I’m not going down without a fight not tonight
Track Name: Pretty Sure
You’ve the most beautiful face I have seen in my whole life
But your insecurities are eating a way my insides

You’re pretty sure
But you hate yourself
I’m pretty sure
I’ll never love anyone else

All I can think about what might have been and never was
The world’s conspiring events against the two of us

I’m pretty sure
I can’t fix myself
I’m pretty sure
I’ll never love anyone else

I hope this finds you well and in a place you call your own
I hope to meet you there someday on some nice Spanish road

I’m pretty sure
That I hate myself
I know for sure
I’ll never love anyone else
Track Name: Where I Wanna Be
Lend me your ear and I’ll sing you a song
Be glad you’re here cuz you’re right where you wanna be
Drowning your sorrows and easing your wrongs
Be glad you’re here cuz you’re right where you wanna be

All the best plans of all mice and men are often fucked up way before they begin

Endeavored to live the life that I have dreamed
Played with house money but then gave it all back again

But I’m right where I wanna be

Every choice you’ve made has lead you here
Ready or not you are right where you wanna be

Only as time goes by it becomes clear
There is no fate or god, there is no destiny

Seems life is over before it’s begun
You know that you’re old when you envy the young

Made my mistakes but mistakes that I’ve loved
Do it again cuz I’m right where I wanna be

Yeah I’m right where I wanna be
Track Name: No Glove, No Love
Lost a glove, only one just in time for winter
Almost new, hardly used, just in time for winter

Now one hand is cold but not as cold as my insides as my heart implodes
But I’ll soldier on till the snow is gone with one hand and my heart exposed

Walk alone headed home, January winter
A thick malaise permeates, I hate this fucking winter

The night is cold and clear and still without a breeze
My lungs are full of air so chilled I cannot breathe
They say when you freeze to death it’s just like falling asleep

Yeah I could fall asleep
Don’t want to fall asleep

But one hand is cold but not as cold as my insides as my heart implodes
But I’ll soldier on till the snow is gone with one hand and my heart exposed
Track Name: Doesn't Matter
One hundred billion people lived and died on this earth
I’m just another one of them, for what it’s worth
Soon enough I’ll become dust, or just a soul
It reassures me and helps me know

I guess it doesn’t matter
I guess it doesn’t matter
That you don’t love me anymore

Two hundred billion galaxies in the universe
Maybe there’s planets just like earth
Maybe the alien of me in some bizarro world
Managed to hang on and keep his girl

Five hundred trillion molecules in my DNA
Are all that makes me feel this way
It’s nothing more than chemicals being chemicals
A simple reaction and that is all
Track Name: Faster
I thought you had come
Faster than you did last time
I thought we were done
But you keep saying that youre mine
I can’t see a single reason why you would want to cross that line
I thought you had come faster than you did last time

See you blowing up my phone again
Thought that we were nothing more than friends.
You show up late, you’re wanting more

Don’t know why I ever let you in
Thought that we could keep it innocent
Till I slammed you up on the bedroom door
Track Name: Fourteen Beers
Take away the scene we live in all that’s left is bones and skin
Feed your ego but how do we know if that does any good at all
Does that make you happy?

Take the furnishings from this place all that’s left is empty space
Go out shopping never stopping
Try to fill the void you have
Does that make you happy?

I got 14 beers in my refridgerator and some taco bell that I can finish later
So call in sick to work and have a drink with me

Cuz it don’t take much to make me satiated
If you stayed a while I’d sure appreciate it
We can both fall asleep and I would be happy
Cuz that’s all I need

Take away all your transgressions, what is left is pretty dull
If you were perfect would it be worth it to even be alive at all
And would you be happy?

Take it all away from me
I got everything I need
A comfy place to sleep
14 beers and you right here
Are all I need tonight yeah I’ll be alright
Track Name: Those Four Words
Those 4 words
Don’t say them
Don’t mean them
I’m begging of you

Just go on
Just pretend
Don’t tell me
Don’t tell me the truth

And tell me what went wrong
I played your favorite song
The words became erased
With nothing but cold in their place

You don’t mean
To hurt me
I know this
I know this of you

We both know
We know this
Obvious
We know it’s the truth

Outro verse
Those 4 words
Don’t say them
Don’t mean them
I’m begging of you

Those 4 words
You’ll say them
You’ll tell me
“I don’t love you”
