Track Name: Dance Floor Forever
It's Saturday, and I survived
Blood red sun dripping on a summer night
I'm dropping all my pickup lines
You fell from heaven like a meteorite
Impossibly, you're into me
You know that cockiness was never my style
We smile till our cheeks hurt
I'm dreaming, don't wake me up

SATURDAY NIGHT FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE
YOU'LL NEVER HAVE TO SAY GOODNIGHT
WE COULD BE TOGETHER
ON THE DANCE FLOOR FOREVER
SATURDAY NIGHT UNTIL THE END OF TIME
I'LL TAKE YOU WHERE THE SUN WON'T RISE
IF YOU'RE COOL WITH WHATEVER
WE'LL BE ON THE DANCE FLOOR FOREVER

It's Saturday, and I'm in love
We linger like ghosts in the club
It's zero hour, so stop the clock
We float together like astronauts
Impossibly, you're into me
It sounds crazy, but it just might work
We smile till our cheeks hurt
I'm dreaming, don't wake me up
Track Name: Origami Person
Origami person I fold my life like paper
But it tears me to shreds when you ask me what I do
I try to defend my decisions
I try to play it cool
But something tells me you already knew

I DON'T WANT TO BE SOMETHING I'M NOT
I'VE BEEN ERASED AND REWRITTEN
TILL I CAN'T REMEMBER THE MAN IN THE MIRROR TONIGHT
I DON'T WANT TO BE SOMETHING I'M NOT
EVEN WHEN I TRY, YOU TEAR ME APART
NOW I CAN'T REMEMBER THE MAN IN THE MIRROR TONIGHT

Origami person I cut these lines and save them
For a time when I meet someone as real as you
You crumpled me up and you threw me
But you never really knew me
You opened me up, and you cut my heart in two

Origami person I fold my wings like paper
If I climb to the top I could fly away from you
Track Name: New World Record
Don't look back, it's our turn
You can throw darts, or you can pick your poison
Trophy shelf, sell it for scrap
It only matters what you do now
All my blood, sweat, and tears
are rocket fuel
3... 2...

WORLD RECORD
I'M TALKING HIGH SCORE
TOO MANY DIGITS
FOR THE SCOREBOARD
I DON'T TALK MUCH
I JUST RECORD
KEEP MY HEAD DOWN
PUSH FORWARD
WE DON'T KNOW HOW TO LOSE
WE DON'T KNOW HOW TO QUIT
NO ONE CAN STOP US NOW
WE'RE KILLING IT

Don't look down, it's gonna get worse
I'm going cheat code, I'm going god mode
Everything you wanted and more
UPS, I'm bringing it home
All my blood, sweat, and tears
are rocket fuel
3... 2...
Track Name: Born Again
I couldn't quit you
if I wanted to... wanted to
You handed me sour fruit
and I squeezed it out... lemon juice
I came to the city and it changed me
like a cocoon
The summer is blistering
Gonna hit the pool like I'm born again

You couldn't quit me
if you wanted to... wanted to
I've got you eating from my hand
Ice and sugar cubes
There's something in my veins
sweet like Kool-Aid
White sand and tan skin
Gonna hit the pool like I'm born again
Track Name: Angel
You're the one that broke the mold
I'm the outcast that struck gold
Searching for a lonely star
Out of constellation
The bad news is we're all alone in this world
The good news is we're all alone in this room

On the outside looking in
Child of passion, born to sin
But if you give me just one night
I could show you paradise

OH SWEET HEAVEN, YOU'RE MY ANGEL
YOU UNDERSTAND ME LIKE NO ONE ELSE DOES
YOU PUT MY COLD HEART BY THE FIRE
YOU PULL MY DARK HEART INTO THE LIGHT
ANGEL, STAY WITH ME TONIGHT

Now that I've found you I don't want to let go
There are so many secrets that I need to know
So if you give me just one night
I could show you paradise
Track Name: Perfect
Little miss sunshine
raining on the world
Apple of your dad's eye
but you always find a worm
Pinch and pull your cheeks up
You know that crying only makes it worse
If I saw you smile again
I think my heart would burst

I JUST WANT TO LOVE YOU
BUT I DON'T KNOW HOW
I CAN'T FIGURE YOU OUT
I JUST WANT TO HOLD YOU CLOSE TO ME
AND TELL YOU EVERYTHING WILL BE ALL RIGHT
YOU DON'T HAVE TO BE
PERFECT TO BE PERFECT FOR ME

Little misfortune
How did you get so poor?
Apple of your dad's eye
but you're rotten to the core
Tacking on the planets
You're the center of my universe
If I saw you smile again
I think my heart would burst
Track Name: Where Nothing Grows
I never thought that far ahead
I lived for now, but my life was different then
So I turn my heart around
try to remember how I felt
when I was a kid
Everything was new
when I said I loved you, it was true
When I was a kid

TIME
TIME'S NOT ON MY SIDE
I HAVE TO FIGHT TO STAY IN YOUR LIFE
BUT YOU... YOU MAKE IT WORTH IT
SAND
LIKE SAND
I'M FALLING THROUGH THE CRACKS
I'M HEADED NOWHERE, AND I CAN'T TURN BACK
IF ALL GOOD THINGS MUST ONE DAY GO
TAKE ME TO A PLACE WHERE NOTHING GROWS

So I set aside the time to let the people in my life
know what they mean to me
I hit send on a couple of drafts
Picked up the phone and called you back
It's ringing...
Track Name: Take Me Home
WHAT DO YOU WANT TO DO?
IT'S UP TO YOU:
TAKE ME HOME OR LEAVE ME ALONE

I've tried so hard to be your friend
I've tried so hard to be your man,
but every time I come your way
I find your heart in another place
You think you hold all the cards,
but I'm calling your bluff
One day I'm your king
and then the next you've had enough
You like what we have
Say we'll ruin that
We could take it too far
and then never go back

this ain't adam & eve
we could try it and see
we could taste that fruit
and put it back on the tree
what if the grass is greener on the other side?
i want to live while i'm alive

I put my heart into your hands
I fit my life into your plans
They say that love will find a way,
but I think my love has lost its way
Track Name: Fade / Summer
Beneath branches in the cool shade,
we lie on the dewy grass and fade
Like the dreams of the newly awake,
we float away

I WANT NOTHING
I NEED NOTHING
THE HARD PART IS OVER
THIS IS OUR SUMMER
BURN, BURN BRIGHTER THAN BEFORE

I WANT NOTHING
I NEED NOTHING
THERE'S NOTHING LIKE
WASTING OUR LIVES
ON LOVE
Track Name: The Future Is Me
Don't stop believing
Maybe one day you will find work in "worrying"
Happiness ain't what it once was
Sing till you're held in contempt by a talent show judge

IF THE FUTURE IS ME,
THEN THE FUTURE IS BLEAK
I'M TRYING REAL HARD
TO BE ANYTHING
THE INTERNET WILL NEVER
SAY YOU'RE GOOD ENOUGH
I NEED YOU TO BE YOU
YOU'RE THE ONE I LOVE
HAPPINESS AIN'T WHAT IT ONCE WAS

We'll get by somehow, some way
We will work miracles, and we'll make mistakes
Don't let it wrinkle your face
The blue skies of history are hand-me-down gray

Ask why your forefathers flew farther
Because their nest was higher

The future is me... I'm trying
