Track Name: Transit - Please, Head North
After tonight I just can't be alone
I’m driving home beneath the stoplights
They’re holding me in suspense.
But that’s just the way it is I guess
For those of us who move too fast
And I wish that I could say
That I'm wishing you the best
But I can’t, but I can't.

So I’ll write it out on paper to remember every word
For all the things I’ve lost and found inside of every verse
These are my directions to you:
Please, head north.

Voices scream inside of me.
Well, “Maybe I’m just cursed.”
Just like they say, maybe I’m just cursed.
I’m always hoping for the best
Maybe I’m just cursed.
I’m always hoping for the best
Preparing for the worst

So please, head north.

Maybe I was right, maybe I was wrong
I just can’t write another one of these summer songs
Oh please not another sad, sad song,
You’ll find me hanging on every word

It kills you to know that this world, it owes you nothing.
So just forget what you’re expecting
You’ll find half what you deserve.
Track Name: Man Overboard - I Ate My Gluestick
The ends coming quick
But not quick enough
You say that you care
But I'm calling your bluff
Because I once was in love
But loves fucking blind
So as I swallow these pills I pray for the sunshine

I could sleep all day
And not sleep it off
I speak all day
And not speak enough
I'm force fed the weeks
Throw up the nights

Curse my existence and turn off the lights...

Not asleep till the morning
(and this can't, and this can't)
This cant happen without any warning
(and this can't happen without...)

You and I were meant to be the glue that held the world together
(But I guess your ill informed)

The ends coming quick
Not quick enough
You say that you care
But I'm calling your bluff
Because I once was in love
But loves fucking blind
So as I swallow these pills I pray for the sunshine

Screaming you just haven't been listening
Girl You don't know the half of it
You can't call this paradise if it's always been hell

Not asleep till the morning
(and this can't, and this can't)
This cant happen without any warning
(and this can't happen without...)

You and I were meant to be the glue that held the world together
(But I guess your ill informed)

Waking up is losing everything
(You know I loved you more)
'Cuz last night I had everything I wanted
(You know I loved you more)
And there's something golden we can't fight
Playing gods in this ice city
(No! you know I loved yo more)
Freaking out is crucial
And the paranoia makes me love you more

You and I were meant to be the glue that held the world together
(But I guess your ill informed)

I guess your ill informed
No I love you more...
Track Name: Man Overboard - Basics 101
I said to her:
'I swear it happened again today.
I swear I thought I saw you.'

'Well it must be a sign' she replied

Well even if it was you I'd never believe
Just keep that reminder
I paid with him taking you
Made one in glue...
It was a contract
You said you'd call if you need anything
And I had to call you for everything

And we didn't
Say a thing...
No we didn't
Say a thing

So we meet up five years later
And I still have that soft spot for you
And you still remember
Find more lyrics at ※ Mojim.com
I'm glad you remembered
'Cuz there was nothing left for me to hold on to

(No we!)
Didn't (didn't!)
Say a thing
No we didn't (didn't!)
Say a thing

Lets take back to the basics
Who'd a guessed?
'I'm back' won't feel like second base

I will cross them out
I will cross you out
And then I'll X myself out
X myself out..
(Lets take this back to the basics
And I'll be waiting forever...
And she's out with all the other ones)
Track Name: Transit - Riding The Bullet
Hands holding tight
Only, letting go we let them raise so high
Above our heads
Smiling and screaming to our hearts content.

We never realize how quickly life can change
Or how much these days have meant.
It's like roller coaster that you never want to end.
So look me in the eyes and know
It's all just a ride.

That as the world goes around
We're living through the pain, the tears, and hardest years
For every sharp turn and for every autumn night
Spent inside tree houses and window sills
We've never climbed so high, we're not afraid to fall.

Looking down and waving from the clouds above
(I've never climbed so high, and I'm not afraid to fall)
From way up here I'm not afraid to fall.

These memories have seen me through the pain,
through the tears and the hardest years.

And I look to you now,
the only one who has ever made me feel so fortunate.

So now I'm waking up each day
And it seems to be too cold to be counting
all of my blessings and feeling so very old.
But whether you're smiling or screaming
I'll be by your side.
I swear I'll be by your side.

And if even it becomes
hearing you just laughing on the phone
I will never forget those days or ever feel alone.
Never feel alone

Cause I've got dreams to remember
For a lifetime of regret
I've got dreams to remember
And so many years to forget.
