Track Name: Pompeii
Pompeii

(verse 1)
Our love
was built on
an indian burial ground
cursed, cursed
from the start
ghosts walking through the walls
in your heart

(chorus)
you tell me not to hang on
but what did you expect me to do
I made a religion
I made a religion
out of living you
and every time I look back
I turn into a statue
but I can't be mad
at my decisions
that i made for you

(verse 2)
forged
like a signature
we're never gonna be the same or similar
after the volcano dies
in Pompeii
we can come back
try to be tourists in each other's lives for a day

(chorus)
Track Name: Red Flags
Red Flags

(verse 1)
I'm an animal
an animal
when you shake your cape
a charging bull
with a scar down my back
for every time
I trust your heart
like I trust mine
thinking that you'll tell the truth this time

(chorus)
Cause you're the best that I ever had
but all you wear is red, all you wear is red flags
best that I ever had
but all you wear is red, all you wear is red flags

(verse 2)
and I'm color blind
you know I'm color blind
but the way you move
catches my eye
oh, and everybody keeps your peace
theres nothing on the other side of what you're giving me
and when you say you love me well you're just showing your teeth

(chorus)
Track Name: Stay Another Night
Stay Another Night

(verse 1)
Head down
in the hallway
you're talking so strong
but when did you
get so sure you're
not leaving wrong

(pre-chorus)
Do you still believe
do you still believe

(chorus)
Then stay another night here
another night here
and maybe we dear
will wake up in love, in love, in love
in love, in love, in love
then stay another night here
another night here
and maybe we dear
will wake up in love, in love, in love
love, in love, in love

(verse 2)
the city's pulling you
saying do what you got to do
no regrets
just forget
but hey now I'm the one who knows you hear
all those other boys just take from you
what they can get

(pre-chorus)
do you still believe
do you still believe

(chorus)
Track Name: I Hope You Stay Awake
(verse 1)
I can be with any girl I want
I get to pick the restaurant
I don’t gotta clean off the front seat in my car
I don’t gotta plan around you no more

(pre-chorus)
And I don’t wanna know who’s room you’re in
And I don’t want details from your friends

(verse 2)
I’m living in a house that we both
Used to own
Going through all the plans you had
To fix it up
Oak tree in the back yard is dying
Funny little things make me think of us

(pre-chorus)
And I don’t wanna know who’s room you’re in
And I don’t want details from your friends
And I don’t wanna know if he’s good to you
And I don’t wanna tell you how long I knew

(chorus)
That there’s not enough room
For me and you in love
That there’s not enough room
For me and you in love
You go your way and I won’t stand in it
You made your bed, and I hope you stay awake all night in it

(verse 3)
Wherever you are playing house with him
Hope you feel me there like a phantom limb
Cause I avoid your mother when I see her around town
I don’t wanna lie about how good I’m not doing

(pre-chorus)
And I don’t wanna know who’s room you’re in
And I don’t want details from your friends
And I don’t wanna know if he’s good to you
And I don’t wanna tell you how long I knew

you go your way, I won't stand in it
you made your bed, hope you stay awake all night in it
Track Name: Compartmentalize
(verse 1)
when you left
I felt ugly and bruised
like I lived through
an accident
I don't even know
what I had to do with it

(pre-chorus)
oh, feeling like I lost time
no, sinner in the sunshine
and now I'm freaking out

(chorus)
cause baby, baby, baby
wasn't I good to you, good to you, good to you
and baby, baby, baby
didn't I do it for you, do it for you, do it for you
and all your ex's and misconnects
just wanna screw with you, screw with you, screw with you
well I'll compartmentalize the way I fell for you
cause wasn't I..
wasn't I..

(verse 2)
had a kid
didn't know didn't know
only if we wanted it
still the worst, worst thing I ever did
I picked you up and I dropped you off
came back when you needed
and the beating heart that we made
just became another dark secret

(chorus)
Track Name: When The Swelling Goes Down
When The Swelling Goes Down
(verse 1)
One day
when the swelling goes down
one day
when the swelling goes down

chorus
I just wanna drink with you
I just wanna drink with you
I just wanna talk it out
talk it out, talk it out

(verse 2)
one day
when you know what you want
one day
when you know what you want

chorus
I just wanna drink with you
I just wanna drink with you
I just wanna talk it out
talk it out, talk it out

(oohs)

And I don't want a thing from you
I don't want a thing from you
I just wanna talk it out, talk it out, talk it out
Iron out some things with you
restructure all the blame with you
and maybe we can talk it out

when the swelling goes down
