Track Name: Part I
We look so good
we are everything that we should be
We have one night
to forget everything but us

I love you

We'll sing all night
make all our neighbors cross at us
i know you have your doubts
but tonight reminds us of our love

I love you
Track Name: Part II
These walls are paper thin,
and I'm just trying to pay the bills
so keep it down

I can hear you across the hall
just laughing to yourself
it's a beautiful sound, but I'm freaking out

Now I'm playing stupid songs
that no one cares to hear
but you always do, don't you my dear?

I know we are
what everybody wants
and we will push on through
these trials setting us apart

Dear do you remember
singing and laughing together
when we were young

Cause darling I remember,
but the water is rising higher
and we're drowning now, not so in love

Well what will our daughter think
when she hears us screaming
inside your stomach where she lays

Well I know we are
what everybody wants
and we will push on through
these trials setting us apart
Track Name: Part III
I found that note you wrote for me
you said, "I'm sorry, but I'm leaving
there's nobody else so you shouldn't worry
it's just our love wasn't strong enough to keep me."

Please don't go
I forgot how to be alone
and I'll be waiting for you to come back home
until I am dead and I'm gone

You were all I believed
now I'm cracking like the leaves underneath my feet
say I'm dreaming, God. I'm dreaming.
I could sure use the sleep
to hell with you for leaving me

Please don't go
I forgot how to be alone
and I'll be waiting for you to come back home
until I am dead and I'm gone.
Track Name: Part IV
Are you happy now?
There's a piece of you
that'll never know you,
but I'm sure she'll love you

Does your back feel light?
Freed of all these heavy burdens?
7 pounds and 3 ounces
you must be so proud of yourself

So where are you?
Cause your daughter's asking questions
about you
If you're coming home
or you're staying gone, alright
You could be coming home,
but you're staying gone, alright

I see you
even the smallest things are memories
like the ceiling fan
above the bed in our room
the ceiling fan
that hangs above the bed
where we'll never sleep again

I'm tired of this city
I want to move out in the country
away from everybody
so I can raise my girl alone, don't have
to worry about these strangers' world
This is everything we wanted

This is all I never wanted
You were all I ever wanted
You were all so

Where are you?
Cause your daughter's asking questions
about you
If you're coming home
or you're staying gone, alright
You could be coming home,
but you're staying gone, alright

I see you
even the smallest things are memories
like the ceiling fan
above the bed in our room
the ceiling fan
that hangs above the bed
where we'll never sleep again

we'll never sing again
we'll never sing again
and I'll never sleep
Track Name: Part V
I sing lullabies and nursery rhymes
but our baby girl, well she just cries
'Cause she misses her mother, like I do

As tears subside I realize
it's been two months since your goodbye
but as long as I am here, you are too

So don't think for the minute
that you're alone in this mess
I know you'll dream and she'll be in it
just keep your faith and
the Gates of Hell won't stand

It's just I'm not the same, it's all inane
and I still taste every grain
of salt along the sea where we first met

and if it's all inane, then it's all in vain
the love we had we can't regain
so if you can be this selfish, don't come back

And I won't think for the minute
that I'm alone in this mess
I know I'll dream and you'll be in it
but I'll keep my faith and

The Gates of Hell won't stand.
