Track Name: Awesomer Than You
Dancing at the show tonight, looking pretty fly, that's right
You think you're gonna hook it up, too bad we're gonna screw it up
You don't come to watch the bands, you come to mingle with the fans
even though they're half your age, staring helpless at the stage

Well watch out
'cuz here we come!

We're so awesomer than you
so cool we don't know what to do
Our horns are all the rage
comin' at you from the stage
We're so awesomer than you

Hiding in the crowd tonight, moving in and out of light
The girls don't like you very much, but still you try to press your luck
They have come to watch the show, not to talk to creeps you know
Knock off your sleazy trash, before we knock you on your ass!

Well watch out
'cuz here we come!

We're so awesomer than you
so cool we don't know what to do
Our horns are all the rage
comin' at you from the stage
We're so awesomer than you

[Horn solo]

We're so awesomer than you
so cool we don't know what to do
We came to play this show
just so you would know that
We're so awesomer than you
Track Name: The Leek Song
I saw her at the store last week
she bought some apples and a leek
When she left I waved "goodbye"
but she just kept on walking by

Maybe someday she'll finally see
just how much she means to me

She's cute, she's cool, she's totally rad
Her sweet little smile is driving me mad
She's coming to the show tonight
but if she won't dance with me it's alright

I caught her leaving Tuesday class
too bad I fell right on my ass
I stood up with my ruptured spleen
but she was nowhere to be seen

Maybe someday she'll finally see
just how much she means to me

CHORUS

[Instrumental Bridge]

CHORUS

She's cute, she's cool, she's totally rad
Her sweet little smile is driving me mad
She came out to the show last night
and then we danced all through the whole night
Track Name: Let's Go Out Drinking
220 BPM
The man at the bar hands me a drink
He says "Take a sip and tell me what you think"
Work was long, time slips away
Next thing I know I'm staring at another day

Let's go out drinking
we'll spend our lives away
Let's go out drinking
who needs money anyway
Let's go out drinking
we're tired from our day
Let's go out drinking
and everything will be okay

I meet my friends, we talk the whole night through
but all I really want is to spend my time with you
2am, time moves so fast
I guess I better leave before they throw me on my ass!

CHORUS

[Horn Solos]

CHORUS
Track Name: Becca's Song
So you think there might be something out there better than me
and you'd be missing out if you just didn't look see
and if you find it's not true you hope it's still you I need
well don't count on it, because I won't wait

And you really do love me but you just can't get past yourself and you
can't give it all up and put me before everything else
well at least you've been honest, but still all I hear is
I don't love you enough

I don't love you enough
I just don't love you enough
though you've been there for me through everything
I don't love you enough

Well you said you think you had it perfect but you really can't be sure
and I meant everything to you but you just had to explore
And you used to wanna run away with me but feelings change
Where do they go? How do they get re-arranged?

And there's nothing I can do to help you change your mind and I
Refuse to beg and I won't cry
And honey you can't keep talking as much as you want but all I hear is
I don't love you enough

I don't love you enough
I just don't love you enough
though you've been there for me through everything
I don't love you enough
And there's nothing you can do
I just need to find someone new who makes me forget myself
but you've gone back on the shelf
I just don't love you enough

[Horn Solos]

CHORUS
Track Name: Run Away
Where are you tonight, my dear?
You know I'd like to have you here with me, have you here with me, whoa
You're the cutest girl I've ever seen in all the places that I've been
Just say the word and run away with me, whoa

Just give me a chance and I'll make it so
All ya' have to do is just let the world go
and run away with me

Where are you tonight, my dear?
You know I'd like to have you here with me, have you here with me, whoa
Maybe if we could find the time I'd really like to make you mine
Just say the word and run away with me, whoa

CHORUS

Where are you tonight, my dear?
You know I'd like to have you here with me, have you here with me, whoa
We'll chase the sunset in my car, go to places near and far
Just say the word and run away with me, whoa
Track Name: Settle The Score
Well if you've got what you want
and you've found what you need
You know you can't let go
Don't let the world bring you down
when the times get tough
And don't pull over
when the road gets rough

'Cuz where we're going
only you can know

You say HEY! you've got to keep it together
stay true to your cause always and forever
Just say FUCK YOU! to those bringing you down
knock them down to the ground you don't want them around
And say HEY! you've got to keep it together
stay true to your cause always and forever
Just say FUCK YOU! to those bringing you down
knock them down to the ground you don't want them around anymore
You've got to settle the score

Well I've got my hopes
and i've got my dreams
and this town it ain't bringing me down
I'm right here where I belong
They can't move me I'll stand strong
They can try their best, I'll stand up to their test
And then we'll know who's wrong

'Cuz where we're going
They could never know

CHORUS
Track Name: OK, Sure
Have you ever had one of those days?
Has it ever felt like no other day at all?
Has it ever been so perfect?
Has it ever felt like it was so right?
Then you came to find out
that one day it was all gone?

Maybe you will see what could have been
and you won't see that we were more than friends

Okay, sure
I'll be alright
Okay, sure
I'll be just fine
Okay, sure
everything is great
Okay, sure
I'll just keep living this lie

Did you ever stop to think?
Did you ever think of what could have been?
One minute we were fine
the next minute we sat in TEARS AND SILENCE!
I wonder what it will be like
when I see you and know you are not mine

and maybe you will see what could have been
and you won't see that we were more than friends

CHORUS

[Guitar solo]

CHORUS (half time)
Track Name: Where's The Girl?
Where's the girl?
The one that I can go to when something's wrong
'Cuz something's wrong
She's the one who can mean the world to me
So I can see, I can see, where I'm going
to be

Where's the girl?
With the smile I can feel
And her skin so soft, so warm, so close to me
She's the one who can mean the world to me
So I can see, I can see, the road is calling
to me
Track Name: Your Last Chance
If I see you tonight I don't think that I will stay
It seems like when we talk that we're running different ways
and you know that I'm still thinking of you
and I don't know what to do

You've already had your chance
now can't you just leave me alone
I guess I should have realized your heart was made of stone
and I can tell you honestly that you've had your last chance with me
I just hope you see

[Guitar solo]
Track Name: She'll Never Know
Keep waiting
You're just as far as you've been before
No one's coming and the lights are dark
You've got to be where you've been but you don't know who you are anymore
Fighting the streak of day that moves across the floor, well we say

Go do it now, you can't be sure that you know how, but
you've got to try or you'll never know what passed you by
Go do it now, the timing's right, no time to fight
Well there it goes, your chance to really show
I'll guess she'll never know

You try your best
to clear the blurry image in her mind, but all it does is make things worse
Your picture is fading and soon you will be gone for good
You need to make your move tonight
Fight the pain inside and reach for feelings you always hide
How could she ever hurt you again?
She's back to see you, close at last, you were her lonely lesson
This is the day, we start from here, well you hear us say

CHORUS

[Tenor/Trombone Trading Solos]

The rush in your chest
Stomach butterflies
Her view tonight could kill
You do it anyway
You can't miss the chance
The world is yours today, and we say

Go do it now, you can't be sure that you know how, but
you've got to try or you'll never know what passed you by
Go do it now, the timing's right, no time to fight
Well there it goes, your chance to really show
That's the way things go
I'll guess she'll never know
