Track Name: I Killed Him For You
You used to say (that you liked my ass)
I would straighten your tie (and you'd unzip my dress)
You had a blast (when I blew up the house)
I would kill them all (if they came for you*)

*You have lost the plot
You never had it so good

I killed him for you
I blew him away
I could have chosen him
But you had a bigger gun

You would listen to me (when I was such a bitch)
I would bail you out (when bond took out your boss)
You would case the joint (and I would steal a car)
I would rob the bank (and you would get us away)
You would hold me close (and I would keep you free)
I would kill them all (if they came for you*)

*You turned into a douche
You're not the man that I knew

I killed him for you
I blew him away
I could have chosen him
But you had a bigger gun

I killed him for you
I blew him away
I could have chosen him
But you had a bigger gun

You expected perfection
I expected confection

I killed him for you
I blew him away
I could have chosen him
But you had a bigger gun
Track Name: Suicide Mission
There's this thing that I do
I don't care whether you like it
It's the way that I am
Nothing to be done about it

There's this thing that you do
I love it and I hate it
It's the way that you are
and you won't ever change it

Can't win this game
Can't get even
Can't lose this
There is nothing else
Can't stop this
Out of control
Can't quit this game
There is no way out

Please help me
I'm lost at sea
Save yourself
Don't drown with me

Please help me
I'm lost at sea
Save yourself
Don't drown with me

I am over this shit
What am I supposed to do
Make a fool of myself
To prove something to you

You're toying with me
I can not really handle this
Who do you think that you are
I will rid myself of you*

*You are not my master
You are not my nemesis

Can't win this game
Can't get even
Can't lose this
There is nothing else
Can't stop this
Out of control
Can't quit this game
There is no way out

Please help me
I'm lost at sea
Save yourself
Don't drown with me
Track Name: You Needed Space
We were so good together,
I thought it would last forever.
Then came the tears
and the hungry years,
alone in the space station
just you and your imagination.
You chose the stratosphere
over what we had down here.
Now I count the stars and cry
as I stare at the evening sky
and wait for the fog to clear
so I can feel you near
because all I have of you
is a view of Saturn's moons.
When you said you needed space
You meant outer space.

I'm in freefall since you left me
I'm in freefall, zero gravity.
(precious synth solo)
I'm in freefall since you left me
I'm in freefall, zero gravity.

It seems such a lonely place
that empty station up in space
do you miss me when you look down
and see the earth so small and round?
Or do you look the other way
at the future as it meets today?
Was it love, that spark in your eye -
or just a comet streaking by?
I guess I'll never know
why you had to let me go.
It seems such a lonely place
that empty station up in space.
It seems such a lonely place
that empty station up in space.
It seems such a lonely place
that empty station up in space.
Track Name: Hello, Gorgeous
First, I was alone, and then I saw you coming
And you, you turned around and I saw your face
Before you came, I was so afraid, I was always running
And now you're here, we're both here, standing in one place

And I say, How can it be
that you're in love with me
I can't believe that I deserve you.

I never thought I'd see the day
that I could ever feel this way
and even if we ever part
you will always have my heart


Now, that I have you I feel like I'm flying
And we, we live our lives in a state of grace
Before you came, I was so afraid, living felt like dying
But now my days, they all end in your warm embrace

And I say, How can it be
that you're in love with me
I can't believe that I deserve you.

How can it be so
that love's the status quo
It's like all my dreams have come true

I never thought I'd see the day
that I could ever feel this way
and even if we ever part
you will always have my heart
Track Name: Let Alone
I couldn't believe it when I saw you at the mall,
Could I ever have such luck? It couldn't be true at all
How could I get a guy like you, let alone one who's so tall?

I couldn't believe it when you lead me to a stall
and then you pushed me up, right against the wall
then you held me up so tight so I wouldn't slip and fall.

This is the best job I have ever had
Working in the fashion mall
Party in the bathroom stall
Making extra money and avoiding mom and dad

I know you have a girlfriend but that problem isn't mine
You can't fight destiny, when the stars align
How could I get a guy like you, let alone one who's so fine?

I know you are a player and maybe it's just the wine
But the way you feel against me is utterly devine
Meet me later in the parking lot? I get off at nine.

Everything is better since I turned 21
Working in the fashion mall
Drinking lots of alcohol
Getting with the hottest guys, impressing everyone.

I couldn't believe it when I saw her in the parking lot
I could tell she was your girlfriend by the way that you guys fought
I hid behind a truck and you dumped her on the spot!

Now that she's out of here our love can have a shot
We don't have to sneak around and try not to get caught
How could I get a guy like you, let alone one who's so hot?

You are the coolest guy I have ever kissed
Working in the fashion mall
Till the summer turns to fall
Counting down the moments till our next lunchtime tryst
Track Name: Problem Solved
I've been trying to keep up with Jones
but I rent my Mercedes and you know he owns
I can hide that problem with my credit cards out
you know I'm not going to let him find out
that I'm walking around in last year's shoes
Baby, it's all debt so I've got nothing to lose
But a few pounds,
Get that weight down.

Who said that money can't buy happiness?
Life sucks? Takes Drugs. Problem solved.
Remember, when you feel distressed
Life sucks, Takes Drugs. Problem solved. (Easy!)

My online profile says I'm still 29
but everyone lies, so it's totally fine
You know I'll never mention that I'm still unemployed

Age and money are the topics you should always avoid
In fact, that's the reason that I quit therapy
I'd rather save that money for blepharoplasty
So I take pills,
Five more refills.

Who said that money can't buy happiness?
Life sucks? Takes Drugs. Problem solved.
Remember, when you feel depressed
Life sucks, Takes Drugs. Problem solved. (Easy!)
Track Name: Getting Warmer
I knew it wasn't right,
what I saw that night,
the way you looked at her
under that street light.

her skirt blew in the breeze
I felt my heart freeze,
there past her thigh highs
your hand was squeezed.

I ran off in the snow.
You didn't even know
when I finally left you
it was why I had to go.

The snow it melts away
gets warmer every day.
It happened over time,
I forgot the sunshine.
Now with the darkness past
I am free at last
and I wonder if its true
if I ever loved you.

And now this bird has flown
You're reaping what you've sewn
I hear you tried to find me
I'm better off alone

I wasn't very smart
But, it's time for a new start
I think I'll raise a glass
and toast my broken heart

You're such a fucking guy
you didn't even try
I don't know what to say now
besides, I hope you die.

Chorus
Track Name: Last Call
Afraid of the dark, but I hide from the light
Wait to open my eyes 'til a flash of lightening
I turn a corner in Heisenberg space
And stumble blindly toward the cliff face

I hear voice call
from above or below?
I'll never find it
With my eyes closed.

I cross my fingers and jump over the edge
I open my eyes in a flash of lightening
It's all around me, a magical place
The fear disappears, this must be heaven!

I hear a voice call
It's coming from me.
I knew I would find it
There's no going home.

I've found the light
I've made last call
Keep my eyes open
I've made last call
