Track Name: Mary
I've got a place down by the shore
I've got a bottle of wine and no glasses for it
I've got a sore heart
I've got a bad head
Since you stopped laying next to me
Mary

Walkin' around, taking up
Space on the sidewalk
Lookin' for somebody to throw me a line
Since I lost my
Mary, I'm
Just lookin' for a little company

I've got a trunk with all of my things in it
I've got a bed on the floor at my best friend's
I've got a cold heart
I've got a bad head
Since you stopped waking up with me
Mary

Walkin' around, taking up
Space on the sidewalk
Lookin' for somebody to throw me a line
Since I lost my
Mary, I'm
Just lookin' for a little company
Track Name: The Easy Part
You fall asleep on your own again
I stay up half of the night
I've lost a piece from inside of me
The joy that keeps me alight
I feel its hole in my side

Why is loving you so hard?
Why is loving you so hard?
This should be the easy part

Each day comes then it's gone again
I don't ever go out
Sit on the couch in a worn out shirt
Watching reruns for hours
With all my things in your house

I try to keep it all working
Words turn to ash in my mouth
A sadness is overcoming me
This fire we started is flickering out

Why is loving you so hard?
Why is loving you so hard?
This should be the easy part
Track Name: Melbourne Rain
I wake up in my house
Alone in my bed
Six am is screaming
Back to this again
I do it with my eyes closed
Wear marks in the cement
How the hell am I supposed
To wash you from my head

Melbourne Rain
Fall on me again
Around my feet
Stuck on your doorstep
Hallway light
Trace your silhouette
Melbourne Rain
Fall on me again

I take a breath and step in
Get blown through the city
Everyone keeps asking me
For twenty cents of pity
All that I am asking
Is baby please think of me
Yesterday was blue skies and bicycles
And I miss you already

Melbourne Rain
Fall on me again
Around my feet
Stuck on your doorstep
Hallway light
Trace your silhouette
Melbourne Rain
Fall on me again

Melbourne Rain
Fall on me again
Around my feet
Stuck on your doorstep
Hallway light
Trace your silhouette
Melbourne Rain
Fall on me again
Track Name: How to Forget
Give me a pill
That alters my mind
Paint over memories
Of things left behind
Cause I don't want them around here no more

Give me a smoke
And I'll smoke you right out of that room in my head
Where you told me to stand and wait
Where you held my hand
Where you said I know you do
Where you said Because
Where you said I'll see you again,
When you hear them singing

La la la
Then you walked out the door

So give me a drink
Just one more drink
Something to keep me warm
Something to wash the last cells from my brain
That whisper your name in the cold

Something to wash down that last drop of rain
That I caught on my tongue, you were laughing
There at the end
I could hear them singing

La la la
Then you walked out the door
