Track Name: The Old New One
You might think that I need her
I just want something to remember
Spending hours of my own time
Telling friends what it feels like

Your love don't follow me down
Just bends and breaks my knees now

A parked car and a long walk
That's the only time that we talk
I can't leave and I can't stay
Feels like I'm wishing all my hours away

Your love don't follow me down
Just bends and breaks my knees now

And I don't know
What's making me scream
I don't know
What's making me scream

Dirt track looking back
Come singing back home
Why should I shed a lie?
Forget whatever you know

I was only helping you down from this place
I was only helping you down from this place

And I don't know
What's making me scream
I don't know
What's making me scream

Take your time
Do it again now
Hold these words
Sing it again now
Track Name: You Think You Wanna Know Why
She, she's got the look of LA
She plays it down in her own time
What can I say?

And I know (and I know)
She's not easy
And I know (and I know)
She can please me

Baby, you think you wanna know why
I think it's just a matter of taste
and before it's too late
You turn it around
turning up that frown

She, she buys her life every day
She makes no money but burns it
to see what I say

But I try (but I try)
To believe it
But I try (but I try)
To eat it

Baby, you think you wanna know why
I think it's just a matter of taste
and before it's too late
You turn it around
turning up that frown
