Track Name: Last Word
I know it means that you’re getting fat
When you don’t look like the girl who does the weather
I know it means that you’re getting fat
When a minute on the lips is forever on whatever

I know I have crazy hair
And a pair of impossible eyebrows
I know 5’2” ain’t too tall
But you can hear me on the other side of the house
I know that I think I know everything
I know that you don’t have to tell me
Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh

I know it means that you’re getting old
When you start to talk to yourself in the mirror
I know it means that you’re getting old
When people start telling you “you sound like your mother”

I know I like to argue a lot
And that I can get really bossy
I know I talk way too much
And my attitude’s a little bit saucy
I know that I think I know everything
I know that you don’t have to tell me
Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh
(Repeat)

Mamma always scolded me
About having the last word in everything
But I’ve grown and moved away
And I spoke with her on the phone just yesterday
She says giving up the last word is a sign of maturity
Well, I know that you don’t have to tell me
Oh Oh Oh Oh Oh

She says giving up the last word is a sign of maturity
Well, I know that you don’t have to tell me
Track Name: 11 Years
Yesterday we threw things at each other
Yet to discover our
True love, true love
Yesterday we were barely just lovers
Yet to discover true love

And I don’t know how long it takes
To figure out this thing
But I know I will keep on trying to fit into this ring

Today we’re standing her staring at 11 years
Wondering if we’ve found
True love, true love
And I don’t know ‘bout you
But when I look at you
I know I’ve discovered true love

And I don’t know how long it takes
To figure out this thing
But I know I will keep on trying to fit into this ring

Oh I will wait for you
Don’t you run and hide
Oh baby will you wait for me
Time is on our side
Oh will you wait for me
Don’t you run and hide
Oh baby I will wait for you
Time is on our side

Yesterday we threw things at each other
Yet to discover our
True love, true love
Today we’re standing here staring at 11 years
Knowing we have finally found love
Track Name: Superglue
I was broken
But you super glued me back together
Bruised and shattered
But you super glued me back together

And you did it one piece at a time
First with my heart then my mind
Loving me deep loving me true
With each little piece superglue

And the doctors had work cut out too
Sewing and patching me up
But they couldn’t repair the deepest of wounds
Cause they didn’t have your superglue

I was broken
But you super glued me back together
Crooked lines they may show
But at least I know I’m yours forever

And occasionally I might crack
Need an updated repair
But you just retrieve the glue that holds me
And you superglue me back together

I was broken
But you super glued me back together
Crooked lines they may show
But at least I know I’m yours forever
Track Name: Uncomfortable
I’ve never been very comfortable
In what I would call this skin
I’ve always had the propensity
To want to climb back in and start again

I’ve been in the rain and tried to shrink
I’ve used up my safety pins
I’ve covered myself in plastic wrap
With the help of a few good friends
A tumble in the dryer didn’t seem to make amends
And so I still don’t fit into this skin

I crawled underneath so that I could see
The deepest part of me that’s where I’ve been
All I could find was an exit sign
Telling me I’d lost my mind

I’ve been in the rain and tried to shrink
I’ve used up my safety pins
I’ve covered myself in plastic wrap
With the help of a few good friends
A tumble in the dryer didn’t seem to make amends
And so I still don’t fit into this skin

I held my breath till I turned blue
I even dropped a size or two
Like some girls they will never do
I thought I’d follow through
I even got a make up crew
To be the girl the stencil drew
But now I realize that yes it’s true
The problem is…
Track Name: I Want to Know
I want to know why no one wants to ask the questions out loud
I want to know why everybody acts like they’ve got it figured all out
I want to know I want to know I want to know
A little more than this
I want to know I want to know I want to know
What this is

I don’t want to do this if I don’t know why
I don’t want to say it if the thought’s not mine
Can I still believe it if it blurs the lines
I don’t want to do this if I don’t know why

I want to go beyond the lines everyone’s tried to fill out
I want to know if I’m the only one who can’t get it figured all out
I want to know I want to know I want to know
A little more than this
I want to know I want to know I want to know
What this is

I don’t want to do this if I don’t know why
I don’t want to say it if the thought’s not mine
Can I still believe it if it blurs the lines
I don’t want to do this if I don’t know why

If I don’t know why
If I don’t know why
If I don’t know why
Don’t know why
(Repeat)

I want to know why no one wants to ask the questions out loud
I want to know why no one wants to ask the questions out loud
I want to know why no one wants to ask the questions out loud
Track Name: Happy
If I could only be happy
If I could only be happy
If I could only be happy all the time

Then I would make people happy
Oh I would make people happy
I would make people happy all the time

I’d be a great wife and a TV mother
I’d be the best friend
And the perfect daughter

And I would make people happy
Oh I would make people happy
I would make people happy all the time

But don’t you think for a minute
That I can do this
So don’t forget it

I’ll never make people happy
I’ll never make people happy
Never make people happy all the time

Cause I am just a silly human
Trying to figure out
What in the world I’m doin’

And I can’t make people happy
Oh I can’t make people happy
I can’t make people happy all the time

Oh I will never be happy
Oh I will never be happy
I will never be happy all the time

And I can’t make people happy
Oh I can’t make people happy
I can’t make people happy all the time
