Track Name: Win
So we pick up back where we disagree,
The line between a hole in the ground and the apple tree
As I drown myself in the disbelief
Of a million singing doves,
Hid away beneath the sheets

And somewhere in my dreams, I'm thinking
How am I gonna win this one?
How am I gonna win this one?
How am I gonna win this one?

So we pick up back where we lost the key,
In a quiet suburban house back in YYZ
With out burnout kids and families
That we lay out on the carpet, by the Christmas tree

And elsewhere in my dreams, I'm thinking
How am I gonna win this one?
How am I gonna win this one?
How am I gonna win this one?
Track Name: I Hope You Know
Hope comes from a better place,
A better place than love
A better place than happiness

Well I hope you know,
I hope you know

Say what you wanna say,
Love can turn sour in a day
And joy always seems to fade
But hope is always, hope is here to stay

Peace comes from a violent place
It comes from the shittiest days
It comes from the blood and sweat and tears
Well I hope you know,
I hope you know

Say what you wanna say
Serenity just isn't quite the same
As playing the wounded game
And finding someone else to take the blame

Hope comes from a better place,
A better place than love
A better place than happiness

Well I hope you know,
I hope you know
Track Name: The Simple Things
Of all the things to find
When you open up your eyes,
To find love
Is the best surprise of all

Sometimes it takes a hundred mornings
Awkward stares and glances charming
All the while just trying to get things right

But when you finally fall,
Time don't mean a thing
All that matters is the joy your lover brings

Of all the things to find
When you lay down for the night
To find peace
Is the greatest gift of all

But soon as you recount the evening
Something sets your mind a'reeling
Something drives you up,
Right up the wall

But when you finally fall,
Your thoughts don't mean a thing
All that matters is the joy your slumber brings

What makes life worth it all
Is the simple things
Like a careless sleep and the way your lover sings
Track Name: Reality TV
Love, I'd like to know
How'd you like to be on my television show
Oh

Cause it don't feel right
Living alone
Yeah, you gotta have a partner on a television show

Just say I do
And I'll fall in love with you
And we'll get married
Just say I do
And I'll be forever true
Till our ratings drop
And I have no choice but to start a love affair and cheat on you

Love, I'd like to know
Would you like to be on my reality show
Oh

Cause it don't feel right
Being a dumbass alone
Yeah, you gotta have a partner on a reality show

Just say I do
And I'll fall in love with you
And we'll get married
Just say I do
And I'll be forever true
Till our ratings drop
And I have no choice but to start a love affair and cheat on you

Love, I'd like to know
How'd you like to be on my television show
Oh

Cause it don't feel right
Living alone
No it don't feel right
Living alone
No it don't feel right
Living alone
Yeah, you gotta have a partner on a television show
Track Name: Tired
Pamper yourself with a little white
Box of amphetamine
Open your window and see that there's money in the sky

Lend me your wisdom and give me a piece of your mind
Come next December, I promise you
It'll be alright
It'll be alright

I'm just too tired
To tell you I'm sorry
I'm just too tired
To tell you who I am

Carry yourself to the bottom of
The lake that you're drowning in
Don't mind the surface, it's only just
A figment of your mind

Give me your signal to let me know
That everything is fine
Come next November I promise you,
The sun is gonna shine
The sun is gonna shine

I'm just too tired
To tell you I'm sorry
I'm just too tired
To tell you who I am
Track Name: Ghost
Well if you paint me an airplane
Love, then I'll paint you a sky
For you to hang all of your secrets
Until the day you die

Until the rain comes and it goes
Floods all the places you fancy the most

And you might try to fight it but you can't deny it
My love, you'll become a ghost

So when the night falls and the day has passed
And you find good things never last
What's to say they won't ever come back

Well if you sing me a lullaby
Yeah, then I'll write you a poem
That you can tape right to your ceiling
For the moments you feel alone

Until the time comes
And it will,
When you'll tear it up, leave it out on your windowsill

And I might try to fight it
But I can't deny it, my words will become ghosts

So when the night falls and the day has passed
And you find good things never last
What's to say they won't ever come back

Well if you paint me an airplane
Love, then I'll paint you a sky
For you to hang all of your secrets
Until the day you die

Until the rain comes and it goes
Floods all the places you fancy the most

And you might try to fight it but you can't deny it
I might try to fight it but I can't deny it
We all try to fight it but we can't deny it
We all become ghosts
We all become ghosts
We all become ghosts
We all become ghosts
Track Name: Plans
Show me the money
And I'll stay the hell away from you
I'll stay the hell away from you

Quit tellin' me how I should live my life
Cause it's the same thing twice
And all you ever get is burned
All you get is burned

But don't you ever tell your father
Cause I don't wanna be discouraged again
And don't you ever tell your mother
Cause I don't know if it's the right time
I don't know if it's the right time
Time

Call me your lover
And I'll pack my bags and live with you
I'll pack my bags and live with you

Then I'll buy us a house with my pocket change
Don't worry or doubt, you know love we'll be okay
We'll be okay

But don't you ever tell your father
Cause I don't wanna be discouraged again
And don't you ever tell your mother
Cause I don't know if it's the right time
I don't know if it's the right time
Time
Track Name: The Line
I saw the line where the universe meets the sky
I saw the line where the hourglass is still
Down by the lake as I was waiting for the day to break
Down by the lake, I saw her coming from the hills

Well I saw her dance across the waves and steal my soul
I saw her dance across the waves and just carry me home
Carry me home
Carry me home

I took a walk to the place where time will never stop
I took a walk and found the fool out on the hill
She held out her hand and asked me if I'd like to understand
She held out her hand and here's exactly what she said

When you see me dance across the waves gimme your soul
When you see me dance across the waves,
Love I'll carry you home
Carry you home
Carry you home
Track Name: Down
Down, don't you bring me down
Don't you spin me round
Set my feet on the ground

Out, don't you wear me out
Make me wonder and doubt
What it's really all about

Cause I swear I've had enough

But oh, I guess I'm outta luck
Cause all my friends have given up on me
I'm begging for some sympathy
I'm begging for some sanity
I'm begging for you, please come help me out

Down, don't you bring me down
Don't you ever make me frown
Drag my name right through the ground

When the drugs don't work
Ain't it what you've heard
If it's on your mind

Then it's in your eyes
And it's really no surprise

But oh, I guess I'm outta luck
Cause all my friends have given up on me
I'm begging for some sympathy
I'm begging for some sanity
I'm begging for you, please come help me out

Down, don't you bring me down
Don't you spin me round
Set my feet on the ground
