Track Name: I Think I Screwed This Up
I really messed this up
I did something only a fool would do
I think I screwed this up
I spoke a language that I barely knew

145 bpm, capo 0
G Am
Track Name: To Tick Back To Me
it’s been such a long time, girl
since I held you in my arms
is there any way in the world, babe
to get the seconds to tick back to me
just holding your, hand
makes me so damn proud to be your man

155 bpm, capo 0

Track Name: The Second Hand
I saw you flipping through my biography
If you wanted information, y’shoulda just asked me
Come on and take a look
Besides I’m sure that book
Is filled with nothing but lies
You could measure my love with the second hand
What the first hand does it doesn’t understand
So the second hand’s left
To clean up the mess
That’s certainly no surprise

130 bpm, capo 0

Track Name: But Now It's Time To Fall In Love
a new group of gunk
wearing goggles on the gliders of our life again
the voices of punk
telling stories that our parents told our grandparents
but now it’s time to fall in love
but now it’s time to fall in love
the east side of love
we over-analyze the meaning of our life again
but now it’s time to fall in love
but now it’s time to fall in love

Track Name: It's How I Do
you’re proud of me, well you better be
your real kids live, in Tennessee
it’s hard to imagine them outshining me
I smile and wave, from the car
your guilty gut, up against the bar
it’s hard to imagine them apart so far
It’s how I
It’s how I
It’s how I do
It’s how I do

Track Name: Stuck in Second Gear
lonely only wins
when the voices in your head begin
we’re stuck in second gear
how will we ever get out of here?
driving sitting backwards while the bastard son he tackles a nun
serving sloppy seconds to anyone who’s not number one
we’re stuck in second gear
how will we ever get out of here?

Track Name: How Old Is She?
how old is she? I’m in love
she’s twenty-three, and in love
If you feel like another trip before you’re gone
just picture everything gone wrong
how old is she? I’m in love

Track Name: Lower Strings
it’s with a heavy heart that I tell you
before I even start to say more
I probably should sit there beside you
and both of us should stare at the floor
I’m trying not to make this about you
But I think the other guys on the team
Should probably play more than I do
They’re all way better than me
You should play the lower strings

Track Name: The Slow Men of Menopause
Who obeys the laws
Only the slowest of men
men of menopause
each on his high horse again

Track Name: Your Mother's Cousin's Daughter
your father’s cousin’s son
could never be the one
we must avoid the shun for the name
and on the other side
while it’s a smoother ride
there’s still the loss of pride and the blame
but your mother’s cousin’s daughter
has bathed in holy water
at least your mother’s cousin’s daughter
has bathed in holy water

Track Name: Not On My Watch
we all went up for another helping of your dish
it’s a good thing you brought plenty cuz I only get one wish
and it’s no, no, no… not on my watch
no, no, no… no way
it’s no, no, no… you can count on
not getting your way
no way
we all like second chances unless it’s us who was wronged
and we all take second glances we just try to not get caught
and it’s no, no, no… not on my watch
no, no, no… no way
