Track Name: Lonely Together
I'm lonely; you are lonely
For the good of our hearts
Let's be lonely together

The moon and the stars are so far apart
But don't tell me that they're not together

Take a walk on the boardwalk and see what we see
Maybe we'll find we both like cherry ice cream
Sooner or later we must disagree
So let's realize perfection is not meant to be

I'm lonely; you are lonely
It's a big world outside
Let's be lonely together

If the world ends tomorrow, we still have tonight
Let's be lonely together

Take a walk on the boardwalk and see what we see
Maybe we'll find we both like cherry ice cream
Sooner or later we must disagree
So let's realize perfection is not meant to be

I'm lonely; you are lonely
It's a big world outside
Let's be lonely together

If the world ends tomorrow, we still have tonight
Let's be lonely together

Let's be lonely
Let's be lonely
Let's be, let's be together
Track Name: Get No Sleep
I can't get no sleep
Anytime of night because
I just stay the same
No matter how damn fast I am running
Out of time
Out of patience 
Out of reasons to be 
Wide awake in bed
Waiting for the sun to reach me

Get my hands into the dirt
Move every muscle till it hurts
Wrestle blood out of a stone 
Wear it down into the bone
I've got to get me back to work

I can't get no sleep
When the day is said and done
I just got this sense 
A devil that I can't outrun
It's in my blood
Screaming in my gut 
It will not let me go
Every night it keeps me up

Get my hands into the dirt
Move every muscle till it hurts
Wrestle blood out of a stone 
Wear it down into the bone
I've got to get me back to work

Do you ever wake up as the person that you thought that you could be?
I just want to wake up as the person that I know that I can be
Track Name: Please Tell Me Again
Please tell me again why I shouldn't go
Please tell me again but I already know

What'll I do without you?
Where will I lay my head if not in your bed?
What if I find I don't need you?

Please tell me again why I shouldn't go

This is your one last night
To put up one hell of a fight
And tell me the truth

Please tell me again why I shouldn't go

Tell me and I won't go
Track Name: A Day Off
Death is coming over
Go ahead and set the table
Maybe he will take a day off
Come and join our morning meal

Will he compliment the coffee?
Maybe read the paper?
I can ask him if he's sorry
I can't imagine how it feels

To have the nerve
To come to our world
Take away what we're living for

If I could start a conversation
If I could only have his ear
Maybe he would get to know us
Maybe give me one more year

To say goodbye for what it's worth
I got some plans left here on this earth

All the names and the faces taken away
All the names of our children
We are children

I know the odds are stacked against me
He's probably heard it all before
Maybe death will take the day off
Track Name: Sleep Just Fine
I don't have a secret how I spend my days
I can't get you to heaven, I hope you know the way
If you keep your heart open, I'll share mine
Tonight, we're gonna sleep just fine

It keeps getting tougher not to throw them stones
I wanna tell the righteous just where they can go
Don't become a mirror, become the light
Tonight, we're gonna sleep just fine

Is it because when we were young
We were loved and we passed it on
Is it because we know enough
To know we don't know nothing at all

Tonight, we're gonna sleep just fine
Track Name: Barbecue Suitcase
If I'm having a boy
If I'm having a boy
A great big, hairy bundle of joy
I'll call him Barbecue Suitcase and he'll be alright
As long as I am there to hold him tight

If I'm having a girl
If I'm having a girl
Sweetest darn gift in the whole wide world 
I'll call her Dinner Party Pursecake and she'll be just fine
As long as she gets cuddled all the time

How much difference does it make
Still a rose by any other name
Might as well be Dinner Party Pursecake or Barbecue Suitcase
Just love that baby each and every day
