Track Name: Whole Thing Awkward
I think you misunderstood
When I said "Aye I would"
Had to go and make the whole thing awkward

Now I'm tryna look away
Pretend you did not just say
What I think you said
Just want the whole thing put to bed
Just want it all fine
Pretending I've gone blind after just about
Bending over backwards just to please
People we don't like
People I don't even know

He's putting on a brave face
Cause he heard she likes bravery
Goes up says "Just for once I want the girl to pay for me"
Aye he's a right wee white knight
In shining ulterior motives
But I saw last time he tried to walk on water
He barely fucking floated

Not half past drunk
And talking bout religion
I just wanted to get laid
Now I'm losing faith quickly
And they're singing Pink Floyd tipsy
And I really wish they'd lip sync
And they don't

I think you misunderstood
When I said "Aye I would"
Had to go and make the whole thing awkward

Now I'm tryna look away
Pretend you did not just
Say what I think you said
Just want the whole thing put to bed
And all fine
Pretending I've gone blind after just about
Drinking myself plastered just to please
Girls I don't even like
Girls I don't have a chance with

There's no point being livid about it now
But he may as well have shouted
For all the good saying "Calm down" did him
The whisper's not louder in this case
Evidently put an end to their sweet nothings once confronted
She swears it was nothing
Apparently it's not enough for her boyfriend
When all is said
And bad shores headed
I'm not gonna be the one
To say land ahoy

I'm not saying it was right of them
I'm just saying it was torture you just
Had to go and make the whole thing awkward

I think you misunderstood
When I said "Aye I would" (x4)

I think you misunderstood
When I said "Aye I would"
Had to go and make the
Had to go and make the
(x2)
I think you misunderstood
When I said "Aye I would"
Track Name: I Still Couldn't Grow a Beard
And though I could love
All I could think of
As much as I could love
All I could think of was you
You, alone, and you

And boys will be boys
And men shall dishonour
If I'm not a man by now
God I was just the man made of sky
Myself, me, and I

And though I could love
What would it be for without you
How very man made of you
How very manmade of you

And I was stoking your love
Tryna get a match in
I was stoking your love
Tryna get a match made in you
You little matchmaking you

And I was wasting my life
Like it weren't my one and only
How very man made of me
How very manmade of me

Yeah, I was wasting my life
Like it weren't my one and only
I was wasting my life
Like it's alright I got plenty to spare
Ah, but when I want you to care
Bout myself, me, and I
Myself, me, and I
You, alone, and you

Myself, me, and I
For you, alone, and you
Track Name: The Shadow of The Frying Pan
Spent 16 alone
17 too
18 tryna work up the nerve to talk to you
Spent 19 in college
20 in bed

The talk of the towns
The silence between
You, a sight for sore eyes staring
For three hours fifteen
I was queen street bound
Would you know the whole way there
Cupid would not stop kicking at the back of my chair
Well I hungered for want of money enough to eat
Cupid would not stop kicking at the back of my goddamn seat
The hills and I just vying for attention

Spent 16 alone
17 too
18 tryna work up the nerve to talk to you
Spent 19 in college
20 in bed
And I think I'll spend 21 wishing I was dead

I was slipping off out of the back of the party
You were asking why I left
I was texting back 'Maybe I'm too young for this'

The talk of the towns
The silence between
You, a sight for sore eyes staring
For three hours fifteen
I was homeward bound
Would you know the whole way there
I could not stop kicking myself at the thought of you there
Well I hungered for want of anything to change at all
Cupid would not stop kicking, telling me to call
The hills and I fighting over scraps

Told them I spent 16 alone
17 too
18 tryna work up the nerve to talk to you
Spent 19 in college
20 in bed
And I think I'll spend 21 wishing I was dead
22 and 23'll just be passing by
And I'm sure I'll spend 24
Wishing I was 25
Six and seven won't know what to do with
28 and 29'll just be taking the piss
And I'm thinking about reaching, like, 30
And I'm thinking about
Maybe I'm
Maybe I'm too young for this

I was slipping off out of the back of the party
You were asking why I left
I was texting back 'Cause fuck that place'

Maybe I'm
Maybe I'm
Maybe I'm too young for this
Maybe I'm too young for this
Track Name: Wallow Is Me
I went and lost it all
I went and lost it all
When I can't do a thing about it in this state
I went and lost it all
I went and lost it all

I guess it's just my luck
I guess it's just my luck
You're the thorn in my side
I guess it's just my luck
To have a persecution complex this size

Guess I'm thinking of you now
Guess I'm thinking of you now
When I can't do a thing at all
When I'm bad luck to have around
Bad luck to talk to, I'm gone
I'm good as gone

Guess I'm thinking of you now
Guess I'm thinking of you now
When I can't do a thing at all
When I'm bad luck to have around
Bad luck to talk to, I'm gone
Good as gone
Good as gone, I'm gone
I'm good as gone

Ah
Ah
Ah
Ah

Guess I'm thinking of you now
Guess I'm thinking of you now
When I can't do a thing about it all
I went and lost it all
I went and lost it all

I guess it's just my luck
I guess it's just my luck
You're the thorn in my side
Guess it's just my luck
Guess I'm thinking of you now
Track Name: A Promise or Three
"Once bitten, twice shy
Is that not how these things get started
Out on a limb
Now on my lonesome, broken-hearted" she said
I'm thinking she lied by now

I was comparing it to a papercut
It was the only pain I knew
I had forgot somehow to take you down
Who needs love when I've got you

Twice fooled shame on me
Is that not what they say
Never again turned now anyday
She stole
Whatever it was it's back

I was comparing it to a papercut
It was the only pain I knew
I had forgot somehow to take you down
Who needs love when I've got you

When they've got a name for everything
Make your own up and they'll sue
Just keep in mind if you're wanting to come back home
Who needs love when I've got you

Once bitten twice shy
Is that not how it ends
Riding the tails of all these hipster-hating trends
She stole
Whatever it was it's done now

When they've got a name for everything
Make your own up and they'll sue
Just keep in mind if you're wanting to come back home
Who needs love when I've got you
Track Name: To Count On
When they've got a name for everything
Make your own up and they'll sue
Just keep in mind if you're wanting to come back home
Who needs love when I've got you

When I thought you were someone I could count on
Til you said it didn't count
I'm still waiting on that fiver
Still waiting on you to pay up, to pay up

Well I thought I was done, thought I was done
Thought I'd be done by now
When I'm still waiting on that fiver
Still waiting on you

Well, when they've got a name for everything
Make your own up and they'll sue
Just keep in mind if you're wanting back through that gate
Who needs love when I've got you

When I thought you were someone I could count on
Til you said it didn't count
I'm still waiting on that fiver
Still waiting on you

Well it's all I had, the little that I'd want
It was you I was thinking of
I'm still waiting on that fiver
It's all I had

Yeah, when they've got a name for everything
Make your own up and they'll sue
Just keep in mind if you're wanting back through that gate
Who needs love when I've got you
