Track Name: Summer Was A Carpet
When we left New Jersey for New Orleans
We knew we'd be back
And eventually you would leave me
When you packed your things for university
I understood
95 never looked so good

Summer was pulled out from beneath our feet
And we can never go back
To New Orleans

When I drove to see you for Halloween
We weren't the same
And when it came time to leave
I drove home through the leaves and thought of June

Summer was pulled out from beneath our feet
And we can never go back
To New Orleans
Track Name: Complicated
I know where you went that night
You didn't go home
But I'm not sure of how you feel

If you were just too tired
You didn't have to lie
And make it all so complicated

I thought things were pretty clear
When we got off the phone
But I'm not sure of how I feel

And I am just so tired
I ain't gonna lie
And make it all so complicated
Track Name: 10 Years
Ten whole years after I met this girl
I fell in love with her
and I why I had to wait so long
I'll never know

I was just a teenager with Rock 'N' Roll on my mind
She was just a teenager a couple grades behind

and I never knew that it could be as good as this
I never knew, I never knew
am I crazy or just crazy for Jennifer?
I only wish I didn't have to wait

We went to a football game, we went to the park
We laid on the floor in her room and looked at the stars
Track Name: Ultimate Test
Years ago I would have said
A clumsy fool like me deserves
Opposite of all these things given to me

And saying this I recognize
My selfishness, my foolish lies
And all the reasons I've left to fight

And if I fall flat on my face
Try to forget all the mistakes I made and the rest
I put myself through the ultimate test

Years from now I'll just be glad
This clumsy fool once had the chance
To live inside this kind of life

And saying this I recognize
The love you'll find in other eyes
And how I should push you aside

And if I fall flat on my face
Try to forget all the mistakes I made and the rest
I put myself through the ultimate test
Track Name: Amanda
Amanda, I am sorry that I am here
And you're so very far away for me to feel near
And you know I've been waiting for someone
To lift me up out of these clouds I've known for so long

So baby don't go crying
Without me there to hold on to you and your hand
And tell you everthing is gonna be okay
We'll be together someday

I never thought i'd ever get the chance
To be with you and tell you how much all this makes sense
And now that we have parted please don't forget
I'll always be willing to give you all that I can

So baby don't go crying
Without me there to hold on to you and your hand
And tell you everthing is gonna be okay
We'll be together someday
