Track Name: Another Man
Come down, little bird
I swear there's no harm if you do
Want to feel your breath on me
Want to keep me close to you

But that's not in the cards
That's not a part of your plans
You want to leave me
For another man

You say it's all my paranoia
You tell me not to say those words
With the way you treat me and avoid me
How am I supposed to feel assured?

No, I'm not in your cards
I'm not a part of your plan
You want to leave me
For another man

I'm sorry it's been so long
I'm sorry that you're bored
I'm sorry if you didn't get enough attention
I'm sorry every time you do something you think you deserve a reward

No, I'm not in your cards
I'm not a part of your plan
I spent years trying to earn you love
Now it's gone with a wave of your hand
You want to leave me
For another man
Track Name: The Forgotten
Let's go driving past city limits tonight
I hear the streetlights shine like stars
Come on, it's our chance to get out of this place
These people, they don't know who we are

We've been told that we are ugly
We've been told that we are weird
Well, they beat us down and they kicked us in
But, girl, I swear they won't find us here

We are the forgotten
We are the forgotten
We are the forgotten, babe

Well, let's forget them too

In my car, I put the windows down, down
So I can feel the wind on my skin
Almost makes me feel human

So I'll pick you up at a quarter 'til 9
And we'll make our last go around
Speeding down that blacktop into the dark
We'll see if they remember us in this town

We were told we were ugly
We were told that we were weird
Well, they beat us down and they kicked us in
But, girl, I know they can't find us here.

We are the forgotten
We are the forgotten
We are the forgotten, babe

Well, let's forget them too
Track Name: Just a Memory
First date, too late
I've already fallen in love with you
Time moves slow, it started long ago
Now, I just don't know what to do

'Cause don't you know it's been a long time?
Don't you know it's been a long time?
Since both of us felt that good?

I remember you in your white summer dress
Forget your shoes, our toes playing in the grass
I loved the way you'd look at me
Love your soft smile, I miss making you happy

'Cause don't you know it's been a long time?
Don't you know it's been a long time?
Since both of us felt that good?

So you remember me and I'll remember you
And I'll remember our love is just a memory too

Didn't think that it was possible
For two people to get too comfortable
I just assumed you'd always be there
I'd listen to your problems but I wouldn't really care

'Cause don't you know it's just the same thing?
Don't you know it's just the same thing?
That you complain about everyday?

So you remember me and I'll remember you
And I'll remember our love is just a memory too

I'll remember you
Track Name: Stuck With You
Staring at the gutter
Hoping I don't fall in
Pillow on my head
Wishing I was dead
Everyone is staring
But I don't want to move
I'm sick of all their whining
And my headache, I can't soothe

Someday I'll be free
With others beside me
You'll be a forgotten look
A stain across my picture book
'Cause I can't stand another lie
Or another sight of you
The more that time goes by
The less that I can do

I think I finally realized
The problem isn't me
I'm sure that I'll be happy
Once I get away from these three
'Cause my head is always pounding
And my ears are always full
And my voice is never used
'Cause the conversation's coming from you


Someday I'll be free
With others beside me
You'll be a forgotten look
A stain across my picture book
'Cause I can't stand another lie
Or another sight of you
The more that time goes by
The less that I can do

I guess I'm stuck with you
