Track Name: Purely Hypothetical
Your first love wasn't the greatest
But I'm sure it gave some entertainment
My love may be the latest
But I'll do what I can to make it last
So young, so inexperienced
Just take a look where we could stand
Fall in, I can be serious
So won't you please just take my hand?

What would it take
To get you over in my world?
What would you say?
It's all purely hypothetical

So wrapped up in history
So much you don't see what I mean
You wish you were a mystery
And I wish you were laying next to me
Forget your expectations
We can beat them, you and me
I've never been so sure before
Just take a chance, love, and you'll see

What would it take
To get you over in my world?
What would you say?
It's all purely hypothetical
Track Name: Mexican Coke
Well I'm not your man, but I know you didn't come here for nothin'
So let's take a walk, I've been waiting all night to say somethin'
Baby every time you walk into my sight I-I-I, start to lose control
Every time you take a sip of that Mexican Coke I-I-I, wish I was the bottle

Let's take a little drive and bring your lips to mine
Won't you show me whatcha got? Show me whatcha got?
I got what you want and I know what you need and I-I
I'm gonna give it to you

Pretty little thing, black boots and straight bangs
Let me getcha to sing for me, getcha to sing
Echo Park queen, black frames and lip ring
Let me getcha to sing for me, getcha to sing
Pretty little thing, black boots and straight bangs
Let me getcha to sing for me, getcha to sing
Echo Park queen, black frames and lip ring
Let me getcha to sing for me, getcha to sing for me

Let's have some conversation, we can let our bodies do all the talkin'
We'll get tongue-tied all night, you know there ain't no stoppin'
Sweet like sugar, think I found my new favorite taste
We got all night baby, there ain't no need to make haste

Let's take a little drive and bring your lips to mine
Won't you show me whatcha got? Show me whatcha got?
I got what you want and I know what you need and I-I
I'm gonna give it to you

Pretty little thing, black boots and straight bangs
Let me getcha to sing for me, getcha to sing
Echo Park queen, black frames and lip ring
Let me getcha to sing for me, getcha to sing for me
Pretty little thing, black boots and straight bangs
Let me getcha to sing for me, getcha to sing
Echo Park queen, black frames and lip ring
Let me getcha to sing for me, getcha to sing for me
Pretty little thing, black boots and straight bangs
Let me getcha to sing for me, getcha to sing
Echo Park queen, black frames and lip ring
Let me getcha to sing for me, getcha to sing for me
Track Name: Hopelessly Hopeful
You and me were perfect company, so what the hell?
All you did was fall all over me, now I can't tell
Never knew, I'd fall as hard as I fell
What you do, you don't know you do so damn well

Now I can't go one night
Without you on my mind
Maybe I'm playing the fool
But I'm hopelessly hopeful

Certainly uncertain what to think about you now
Nocturnally wondering why you let me down
Do you know how much sleep you've taken from me?
Days are slow since you ran off so suddenly

Now I can't go one night
Without you on my mind
Maybe I'm playing the fool
But I'm hopelessly hopeful

Now I can't go one night
Without you on my mind
Maybe I'm playing the fool
But I'm hopelessly hopeful
Track Name: Place_memory
Lying awake, nights take years
Missing you, imprisoned here
Lost myself to you I fear

I'll be here
If you change your mind
I'll be here
Wasting my time

Memory, release me
Memory, I can't sleep

Burning out behind a cigarette
Many since I've known, and yet
I still feel you, I can't forget

I'll be here
If you change your mind
I'll be here
Wasting my time

Memory, release me
Memory, I can't sleep
Memory, release me
Memory, I can't breathe
Memory, release me
Memory, I can't sleep
Memory, memory...
Memory, memory...

I can't sleep
No, I can't breathe
I can't sleep
Track Name: Labyrinth
Repeat
Let it roll
The world is won by those who let it go
Repeat
Let it in
Fighting a war you cannot win

Labyrinth
Am I alive?
Labyrinth
Will I survive?

Release
Let me know
Silent like the falling snow
Let it die
This dream of mine

Labyrinth
Am I alive?
Labyrinth
Will I survive?

Where do we go
Where do we go now
Where do we go
Where do we go now
Where do we go
Where do we go now
Where do we go
Where do we go now?
