Unforgettable
Verse 1:
It was you who made me, me feel that alive
As I danced all through the night
You helped me push my fears aside
Ask anyone
I was better with you in my life
And now that youíre gone I
Keep saying ďout of sight out of mindĒ

Hook:
But it isnít workiní
Well it hasnít worked yet
So I wonder is it worth it
Or should I just lay it to rest

Chorus:
How can I cope
If I canít let you go
When youíre so damn unforgettable
I just donít know
Truth be told
All I know is youíre unforgettable

Verse 2:
You werenít all that wise, or even very nice
But somehow I survived
Pushed through your dark to find your light
But even then
I was better with you by my side
And now that youíre gone I try
to keep pretending that Iím fine

Hook:
But it isnít workiní
Well it hasnít worked yet
So I wonder is it worth it
Or should I just lay it to rest

Chorus:
How can I cope
If I canít let you go
When youíre so damn unforgettable
I just donít know
Truth be told
All I know is youíre unforgettable

Bridge:
Him, heís just a metaphor
Me, Iím divided even more
he bruised me, yes, he made me sore
But he only opened up the door
To a part of me thatís apparently been waiting to soar
To a half of me that I hope I can keep locked away; stored
I get the feeling unfortunately,
itís something thereís no redemption for
No redemption for

Chorus:
How can I cope
If I canít let you go
When youíre so damn unforgettable
I just donít know
Truth be told
All I know is youíre unforgettable

Chorus:
How can I cope
If I canít let you go
When youíre so damn unforgettable
I just donít know
Truth be told
All I know is youíre unforgettable

Milk a Goat
Verse 1:
Iíve always kinda thought of myself as the nice one
out of us both
Iím humble; I will not boast
Opinionated, but Iíll never vote
Iíve always kinda thought of myself as the poor one
yeah, the poor one, but who does the most
Still Iíd never milk a goat
Iíd rather just lay back and have toast

Chorus:
When did I start singing about goats?
Am I really that far away from my own dome?
And when did I become such a dick?
And when did I get this sick?
And why the hell do I tic?
I dunno

Verse 2:
Iíve never really thought of myself as a tough guy
Just donít fuck with my kin
Or Iíll beat your fucking face in
Iím a simple guy who lives simplistic
Iím Just your typical 30-something
Just a parent trying to raise his kid
Minding my own business
Like right now Iím probably ticing while binging on Netflix

Chorus:
When did I start singing about goats?
Am I really that far away from my own dome?
And when did I become such a dick?
And when did I get this sick?
And why the hell do I tic?
I dunno

Bridge:
And oh em gee
why the hell havenít I been able to breathe
out of my nose for so long?
Itís so lonely

Chorus:
When did I start singing about goats?
Am I really that far away from my own dome?
And when did I become such a dick?
And when did I get this sick?
And why the hell do I tic?
I dunno

Chorus:
When did I start singing about goats?
Am I really that far away from my own dome?
And when did I become such a dick?
And when did I get this sick?
And why the hell do I tic?
I dunno

Chorus:
When did I start singing about goats?
Am I really that far away from my own dome?
And when did I become such a dick?
And when did I get this sick?
And why the hell do I tic?
I dunno

No One Will Ever Know
Verse 1:
Would you and I have made it had I not been the light that lit the way?
Iíd stay if you could even tell me my middle name

Hook 1:
Would you say that you didnít care?
Yes, you would say it, but it didnít fair
You always had something to share
Now thatís true love right there
Baby what we had was rare
And Iím not saying that I wasnít scared
But all the drama that Iíd bear
Was better than an absent stare

Chorus:
Itís so sad
(Itís so sad, itís so sad)
Everythingís made to end
(Everythingís made to end)
And someday weíll both be dead
(And someday weíll be dead)
And no one will ever know all the love that we had
(And no one will ever)

Verse 2:
Would we end up together if we met again for the first time?
If so, would we still live such a ridiculous fucking life?

Hook 2:
Did you think that I didnít care?
Yes, you would think it, and that wasnít fair
You say I left you unaware
Now thatís a lie right there
Lemmy say baby what we had was rare
And Iím just saying that I was so scared
ďI canít take this shitĒ weíd declare
Yeah, in the end we lost our flare

Chorus:
Itís so sad
(Itís so sad, itís so sad)
Everythingís made to end


(Everythingís made to end)
And someday weíll both be dead
(And someday weíll be dead)
And no one will ever know all the love that we had
(And no one will ever)

Bridge:
So take some time
Decide whatís right for you
Then live out your life
But only how you choose
If I am right
I think youíll play it smooth
Or you just might
Remake your attitude

Chorus:
Itís so sad
(Itís so sad, itís so sad)
Everythingís made to end
(Everythingís made to end)
And someday weíll both be dead
(And someday weíll be dead)
And no one will ever know all the love that we had
(And no one will ever)

Chorus:
Itís so sad
(Itís so sad, itís so sad)
Everythingís made to end
(Everythingís made to end)
And someday weíll both be dead
(And someday weíll be dead)
And no one will ever know all the love that we had
(And no one will ever)

Chorus:
Itís so sad
(Itís so sad, itís so sad)
Everythingís made to end
(Everythingís made to end)
And someday weíll both be dead
(And someday weíll be dead)
And no one will ever know all the love that we had
(And no one will ever)

Oh That's Right
Verse 1:
Attacking exs in my songs
all the time, it just feels so wrong
My 2010 songs went to far
How did this wretched pattern start?

Hook:
Oh, thatís right, Iíd fall in love
And then theyíd break my heart
Then weíd lose our spunk
as things, theyíd fade to dark

Chorus:
What, was I messed up at birth?
Too messed up to not feel hurt?
I feared itíd never be my turn
But now Iím growing so concerned and you
You donít know how much it burns to know
they all were right when will I learn?
I have no words. I feel so adverse

Verse 2:
My lack of feels perplexes me
And my finger pointing is so vexing
I feel like the whole universe is watching
How the hell is this still happening?

Hook:
Oh, thatís right, Iíd fall in love
And then theyíd break my heart
Then weíd lose our spunk
as things, theyíd fade to dark

Chorus:
What, was I messed up at birth?
Too messed up to not feel hurt?
I feared itíd never be my turn
But now Iím growing so concerned and you
You donít know how much it burns to know
they all were right when will I learn?
I have no words. I feel so adverse

Bridge:
Itís been so long now,
you probably donít even remember
the guy from that little town
And how he took those bloody years from your perfect life
Itís been years and years
Youíve probably tried forgetting everything
that heíd always blame on you
And how he looked the times where heíd get those accusing eyes

Chorus:
What, was I messed up at birth?
Too messed up to not feel hurt?
I feared itíd never be my turn
But now Iím growing so concerned and you
You donít know how much it burns to know
they all were right when will I learn?
I have no words. I feel so adverse

Chorus:
What, was I messed up at birth?
Too messed up to not feel hurt?
I feared itíd never be my turn
But now Iím growing so concerned and you
You donít know how much it burns to know
they all were right when will I learn?
I have no words. I feel so adverse

Bitterly Wonder [OK]
Verse 1:
Pinch me. Do something to bring me back to life.
(Iím not overreaching. Iím just justifying
how it is youíre seeing whatís become the new Bradley.)
Kick me. Donít just pass me. Iím waiting for anything to wake me up.
(Iím not overacting. Nor am I attacking.
Nothing seems to be helping me out.)

Hook 1:
but Iím not down
And no I ainít got a frown
And you won't fucking see me pout
And you bitterly wonder how

Chorus:
But thatís ok
ĎCause Iím ok
So thatís ok
ĎCause Iím ok

Verse 2:
Erase you or replace you, I wish that we had never met.
(Iím not overreacting. I remember your backstabbing.
You wanted me to stay in bed.)
Curse you. Such a jerk you. Though, Iím over wishing you were fucking dead.
(Iím not stuck reminiscing. I cherish the memory
of the life we had together.)

Hook 2:
And Iím not down
And no I ainít got a frown
And you won't fucking see me pout
And you bitterly wonder how

Chorus:
But thatís ok
ĎCause Iím ok
So thatís ok
ĎCause Iím ok

Bridge:
And nobody knows all the ways I was bruised
just trying to make life work with you
And nobody knows all the pain I went through
Just trying to get over, get over, you

Chorus:
But thatís ok
ĎCause Iím ok
So thatís ok
ĎCause Iím ok

Higher Power
Verse 1:
Whatís happening to me?
When did I become so weak?
How did I develop this impulsive need
to savagely destroy my once peaceful destiny?

Hook:
Head down
(Increasing pulse)
Whisper loud
(sadly fun)
Amidst doubt
(I wanna run)
But how?
I mean, isnít it too late now?

Chorus:
Oh higher power
(Iím not even if
such a being exists)
But I wanna hand this over
(So, if youíre really out there
I place myself in your care)
Oh higher power
(Iím not sure how much longer
I can go before I falter)
So higher power
(whatís it going to be?
are you going to help Bradley?)

Verse 2:
I donít recognize the guy
who now lives behind these dark blue eyes
Why does the scale now say Iím oversized?
I used to be the guy who could make everything alright

Hook:
Head down
(Increasing pulse)
Whisper loud
(sadly fun)
Amidst doubt
(I wanna run)
But how?
I mean isnít it too late now?

Chorus:
Oh higher power
(Iím not even if
such a being exists)
But I wanna hand this over
(So, if youíre really out there
I place myself in your care)
Oh higher power
(Iím not sure how much longer
I can go before I falter)
So higher power
(whatís it going to be?
Are you going to help Bradley?)

Bridge:
Fuck how is it time
Can mess with my life
But not erase bad pastimes
Just strip them away from my minds eye?
And would I still be the same guy
if parts suddenly vanished from my mind
If so, how would I know things werenít right?
I couldnít, right?
I couldnít, right?

Chorus:
Oh higher power
(Iím not even if


such a being exists)
But I wanna hand this over
(So, if youíre really out there
I place myself in your care)
Oh higher power
(Iím not sure how much longer
I can go before I falter)
So higher power
(whatís it going to be?
Are you going to help Bradley?)

Chorus:
Oh higher power
(Iím not even if
such a being exists)
But I wanna hand this over
(So, if youíre really out there
I place myself in your care)
Oh higher power
(Iím not sure how much longer
I can go before I falter)
So higher power
(whatís it going to be?
Are you going to help Bradley?)

Not Too Late
Verse 1:
You canít possibly see all the ways Iíve let you down
Iím not sure that I even have enough time left to redeem myself
I think itís far too late now
Iíve surrendered to the fact that Iíll most likely never make you proud

Hook:
I wish you could have known me back then
Because I know that weíd have both just had a blast

Chorus 1:
But itís not too late for you
You can still be anything you choose
Work hard and youíll succeed in anything you do
With the right attitude you wont be able to lose

Verse 2:
There will come a day where Iím not gonna be around
Iíll be dead and gone but you will not be by yourself
I have faith that youíll get it all figured out
Surround yourself with love and joy and life sorts out itself

Hook 2:
I know youíll be going places
Just keep your head up and channel your inner pizzazz

Chorus 2:
ĎCause itís not too late for you
You can still be anything you choose
Work hard and youíll succeed in anything you do
With the right attitude you wont be able to lose

Bridge:
Every time you down yourself
it breaks my heart some
So please just try not to take things so hard
Such a bad habit to part from

Chorus 3:
But itís not too late for you
You can still be anything you choose
Work hard and youíll succeed in everything you do
With the right attitude you wont be able to lose

End Chorus:
Not too late for you
You can still be anything you choose
Work hard and youíll succeed in anything you do
With the right attitude you wont be able to lose

Fall Where They May
Verse 1:
Loving you by far is
easy; so effortless
understanding you is hardest
Donít even get me started
Kissing up on your chest
makes me wanna get undressed
But relating to your unrest
Makes me feel so depressed

What if I? . . .

Chorus:
Just let go of it and focus on me
Live my life and just let things be
Let all the cards fall where they may
And just pray they land, that they land the right way
Just let go of it and focus on me
Live my life and just let things be
Let all the cards fall where they may
And just pray they land the right way

Verse 2:
Making love in the morning
When we were both busy pulling
Feels so right to help you hold it
Getting close, and Iím blowin
Throw a load onto your face
Get real close to investigate
Lick it off Ďcause I hate
My current life; my reality

What if I? . . .

Chorus:
Just let go of it and focus on me
Live my life and just let things be
Let all the cards fall where they may
And just pray they land, that they land the right way
Just let go of it and focus on me
Live my life and just let things be
Let all the cards fall where they may
And just pray they land the right way

Chorus:
Just let go of it and focus on me
Live my life and just let things be
Let all the cards fall where they may
And just pray they land, that they land the right way
Just let go of it and focus on me
Live my life and just let things be
Let all the cards fall where they may
And just pray they land the right way

Bridge:
you should have idolized me
Yo treated me like gold
You should have made me smile
Shouldnít have let me go
You should not have tried me
You couldnít help it though
Should have kissed me tender
Should have just swallowed the load

Chorus:
Just let go of it and focus on me
Live my life and just let things be
Let all the cards fall where they may
And just pray they land, that they land the right way
Just let go of it and focus on me
Live my life and just let things be
Let all the cards fall where they may
And just pray they land the right way

Chorus:
Just let go of it and focus on me
Live my life and just let things be
Let all the cards fall where they may
And just pray they land, that they land the right way
Just let go of it and focus on me
Live my life and just let things be
Let all the cards fall where they may
And just pray they land the right way

So Alone Now
Verse 1:
Knowing that youíre gonna close your eyes for the last time
Knowing youíre not gonna be by my side
Mmm, knowing that itís going to be over
And I never thought it would end

Chorus:
And so Iíll be so alone now
Why must you go
And itíll be all down hill from here now
Why must you go

Verse 2:
Knowing that Iím left alone to deal with the world
No longer a team no happy ever after
But each time I lay my head down at night itís like
Itís like you never left my side

Chorus 2:
And now I am so alone now
Why did you go
And itís all down hill from here now
Why did you go
I am so alone now


Why did you go
And itís all down hill from here now
Why did you go

Older Gentleman
Verse 1:
Iíd give most anything I have
Just to secure you as my man
Right now, I know I ainít got a master plan
But trust in me, Iíll turn all your doubts into sand
Watch all the dirt fall from your hands
Iíll teach you how to stay relaxed
And I donít need anything back
ĎCause youíre enough to make happy all my sad

Chorus 1:
Christ people, when did it become
such a crime to love an older gentleman?
Hell, and Iíd even go as
far as to say Iíd enjoy watching him drag

Verse 2:
I know youíre as old as my dad
And that you still use words like Ďradí
But what I feel isnít a fad
And if they look, well honey, I wont give a damn
So wont you come back to my pad?
If you tell me no two times I swear I wonít be mad
But if you let it be anymore than that
Well then itís me you might have to comfort just a tad

Chorus 2:
Christ people, when did it become
such a crime to love an older gentleman?
Hell, and Iíd even go as
far as to say Iíd enjoy rubbing his flab

Bridge:
Yes, heíll probably die
way before my own time
Then, part of me will harden inside,
so that I can live out the rest of my life
But itís still worth it because of the fire he ignites
itís still worth the many possible sleepless nights
But for this man Iím prepared to fight
all the way to that sweet golden light

Chorus 1:
Christ people when did it become
such a crime to love an older gentleman Hell, and Iíd even go as
far as to say Iíd enjoy watching him drag

Chorus 2:
Christ people when did it become
such a crime to love an older gentleman
Hell, and Iíd even go as
far as to say Iíd enjoy rubbing his flab
