Track Name: Fighting Chance
Drink up
Let’s try this once again
Don’t try to understand
Don’t worry too much

We’re burnt out
Crawl back to bed
And it’s raging in my head
But you can’t hear it

And I just can’t see
Is this you and me
Is this what we’ve left
Seriously?

Play back
Virtual memories
Synch up all the symmetry
Try to see where we went wrong

No caution if there ain’t no wind
Cross my fingers as I pull you in
This all used to feel so magical
Now it’s just weird

And I just can’t see
Is this you and me
Is this what we’ve left
Seriously?
So much, baby
For expectations
Our liberation
Etc.
Track Name: What's Up
Come on, love
It ain’t so bad
We’ve got the world ahead
Nothing but light ahead

Come on, love
Where you been
I’d looked left and right
Between day and night

What’s up? What’s next?
Nothing can stop us now

Come on, love
Let it out
They’re just troubles, babe
They can’t touch us, babe

Come on, girl
Get the car
We’ve got some road ahead
Nothing but light ahead

What’s up? What’s next?
Nothing can stop us now

And it gets so hard to say the words, there’s a traffic jam at my vocal cords
But we’ll talk it out there’s time for conversation

And I can’t let go of holding you, we lose control, it’s all so new
We close the door and build a constellation

What’s up… (&c.)
Track Name: As Close As Close Can Be (Acoustic)
I don’t know how I’m going to get through this
I only know it’s not so bad
The minutes move and friends they come and go
Straight from the future to the past

It’s dead quiet in the telephone
And all the songs are ringing wrong
The times that seemed so neverending then
They didn’t hang around too long

Babe, I’m letting go
Ain’t it good to know
I won’t hang around
Oh no not anymore

I held you close, as close as close can be
Against the wet West Coast breeze
You looked at me and smiled so wearily
It’s like you knew you were getting free

And all the fireworks up in that July sky
And all the things that we would try
You held me close, as close as close can be
I guess you knew it was goodbye

Babe I’m letting go
Ain’t it good to know
I won’t hang around
Oh no not no more

The airplane wind is moaning lonesome blues
Up where our secrets used to hide
I thought I’d make you queen of everything
Turns out I’d nothing to provide

Babe I’m letting go… (&c.)
Track Name: For X.
If it’s right, right for now,
I will step aside
Til if and when the time comes right again

And if it’s real, real enough,
I won’t hesitate,
Call you up just like it was yesterday

If there is a light, this time it’s different
I’ll hold on tight, anyway

And if it’s true, what they say
Love will find a way
Take the steps you & I could never figure out

I’m not saying I will wait
I can’t say too much
We spoke too soon, and ended up the wrong way

If there is a light, this time it’s different
I’ll hold on tight, anyway

I’ll still say, for what it’s worth,
I am never leaving you
You’re always here, deep inside, I am keeping you
