Track Name: Andy, Who Are You?
And we've come so far from where we were
I wonder if we were ever there
And it's so hard on my head

We're not who we were when we began
I wonder who we ever were
Or who we are
'Cause it's so hard
It's so hard on my heart

Andy, who are you?
I don't know you anymore
I woke up from this dream
And we aren't who we were anymore

I drove by your place in my car
You said metallic blue was cool
I know we could be so much more
You'll see

Andy, steals the car when I'm asleep
He never could get very far
He's gonna "break down" on your street
You'll see
Track Name: All In Your Head
You're with someone new again
And I wish that you were dead
And I could wish 'til Kingdom Come
Or admit that I miss you some
But for now I'll wish you were dead

You're with someone new again
And I wish that we were still in bed
You said we could make it work
If I wasn't such a jerk
I think it's all in your head

And I could be your Rosencrantz
If you gave me half a chance
I think it's all in your head
Track Name: In the Hands Of Kong
Jenny thinks I'm an asshole
She's so afraid she'll get burned
She always thinks she is so right
Never has nothing to learn

Jenny thinks I'm a freakazoid
And that I am never wrong
Jenny thinks I've something to hide
Problems bigger than King Kong

Why won't you save me from this death?
Why won't you save me from this end?
Like King Kong
Track Name: Dunderpate
You remember who I am and what we almost...
Were you there the night I stood outside your room until light?

I'm the dunderpate
Should have called but now it's too late
And now you're with someone new

We kiss with our hearts
We said we'd never be a...
Part this sea of tears
Sorry you're gone and no one's here

I'm the dunderpate
Should have called but now it's too late
And now you're with someone new
Track Name: High Heaven
Will you still love me when I'm dead?
Will you still love me when...

And will you still sleep in our bed?
And try to say that we're only friends?
Will you wait for me in the end?
Will you meet me in high heaven?
Track Name: Train Leaving Memphis
My baby hopped the train
The train leavin' Memphis, Tennessee
My baby's up and left me
She's leavin' Memphis, Tennessee
She's goin' to her momma
Way down in New Orleans

My baby hopped the train
The train leavin' Memphis, Tennessee
My baby's gone and left me
She's leavin' Memphis, Tennessee
I said, "Baby, don't go!"
But, man, she ain't hearin' me
You broke my heart, baby...

Baby, baby, baby, come back to me
I said... baby, won't you please come back to me?
Come back to your man
Here in Memphis, Tennessee
Track Name: Eloped To Vegas
Well, I guess
You were pretty mad
When I told all of my friends
We were secretly married in Las Vegas
But you didn't have to get so mad
I know he is dead

Don't you know
That everything I make up is secretly what i want?
Don't you know
That when I die your heart is where my ghost will want to haunt?

Your mom was shocked to hear the one
About the auction block
You wanted me so bad you paid cash
How about that?
