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
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
We're so awesomer than you
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
Track Name: Let's Go Out Drinking
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

Solos

CHORUS
Track Name: Settle The Score (explicit)
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: 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
