Track Name: Crimson Hearts
It was the first weekend of summer / the night was free and easy and I had a couple dollars to my name / and I’d spend ‘em all on you / on half forgotten movies where the plots are gone but the sight of you remains

And it would always rain / but I’d hold you anyway

I would drive you all around / with crimson hearts and windows down / with the magic that we found / we would bust out of this town / where I met you / I won’t forget you

It was the reckless days of romance / it was carnivals and fireworks and our beating hearts just jumping from our skin / those days are just a dream now / something I flash back to when I’m off with all the punks I call my friends

So call me anytime / I’m never gonna mind

I would drive you all around / with crimson hearts and windows down / with the magic that we found / we would bust out of this town / where I met you / I won’t forget you

The city lights around me aren’t the same / we hate the place we grow up but then we miss its ways / the city lights around me aren’t the same / I’d trade ‘em all for another night in the rain

I would drive you all around / with crimson hearts and windows down / with the magic that we found / we would bust out of this town / where I met you / I won’t forget you
Track Name: Dreamers in the Dark
We’re dreamers in the dark / but outlaws when the lights all come up on us / and we get into our parts / let’s ride into the stars / though I’m just a kid and you’re a waitress / I think we could go far

Let’s show ‘em who we are

The band was playing songs / that you used to spin before that summer / before I ever came along / it’s strange now that you’re gone / now I know I miss you like no other / I ain’t seen you in so long

I miss you now you’re gone

Do you remember the night I told you? / I think I was high / or the night when you first let me hold you? / Together we cried

And I was lost an hour ago / I wandered down the empty roads, and I / couldn’t find you here / summer came and summer went / my youth is gone, my money’s spent and I / lost another year

And I was dreaming that I’s / back in two thousand and five / when I had hope in my eyes / I drifted off in my head / as I lay back in my bed / and I awoke to just lies / I wasn’t there at the shore / like I’d been nine times before / I was back in my life / where there’s no real harmony / or childlike memories / everything is just lies, lies, lies /

Do you remember the night I told you? / I think I was high / or the night when you first let me hold you? / Together we cried

We’re dreamers in the dark / but outlaws when the lights all come up on us / and we get into our parts
Track Name: American Dismay
There’s a traffic light ahead / that paints everything around / to match the color of your eyes / in a mustang with our friends / with the top rolled way, way down / staring at these starlit skies

But now the scene is dead and gone, and all the shops are closed down / my lonely heart tried to move on, but it still haunts my hometown

Hey, girl, I’m tired / of the strung out city days / so I drown in a sea of abandon / and American dismay / hey, girl, this fire / reminds me of old ways / so I pack up my possessions / and I throw ‘em all away

We tore through the streets at night / doing 90, blowing reds / we ran till we were out of sight / it’s the second on the right / at least I think that’s what they said / and straight on till the morning light

But the night came falling down, we crashed the car we borrowed / most of my friends have all skipped town, so I just drown my sorrows

Hey, girl, I’m tired / of the strung out city days / so I drown in a sea of abandon / and American dismay / hey, girl, this fire / reminds me of old ways / so I pack up my possessions / and I throw ‘em all away

We all fall down when we’re all fed up / we’re much too young for growing up
Track Name: As I'm Sinking
Hey, how have you been without me? / I’ve been losing track of time / I don’t have any right to call you / but you let me do it and I’m not sure why

But I don’t mind at all

Do you have any stories to tell me? / Something sweet that reminds me of home / you used to tell me stories in the backyard / when I felt that sickness in my bones

To clear my mind

I don’t know how to find home now / I’ve been lost for days / I’ve been thinking as I’m sinking / of slowly changing my ways

I’ve been living devoid of romance / it’s hard to find it in this town / I don’t even know if I want it / or if I saw it if I’d recognize it now

God, I’ve changed

I don’t know how to find home now / I’ve been lost for days / I’ve been thinking as I’m sinking / of slowly changing my ways

Hey, how have you been without me?
