Track Name: Shipwreckee
The Shipwreckee

(C Ab A- F)
I’ve been way down
To the bottom
of a bottle
full of something

Where are you?
I was wondering
I’ve been way down
beat by something

(F / C/E / D -)
I lost everything I owned
the sand cut into my knees
I’ve warned everyone I know (at home)
hope is just a memory

(D- / C#dim) (Bb F)
Do

(C Ab A- )
Heard of one man
he fought through it
when he reached home
he tore it down

and maybe i’m
just not worth it
no, come and find me
I’m here where you left me

(C Ab A- F)
I’m here where you left me

// There he is, left to drift, he’s the captan who sank alone
There he is, without a ship, he’s the captan who sank alone
What is trust, what is love, he’s the captan who sank alone
Left to drift, life’s a bitch, he’s the caption who drank alone

I lost everything I had
the sand cut into my knees
these rocks never warm like home
hope is just a memory
They call me the shipwreckee
Track Name: So Happy
So Happy

Locked in her bedroom (3x - sing 1st and 3rd times)
clutching her notebook tight
So alone
But if you ask she’s

So Happy...

Flowery as all hell (3x - sing 1st and 3rd times)
her blankets hide her face
warm but cold
her teachers say she’s

So Happy...

Talk just to talk tonight (3x - sing 1st and 3rd times)
Talk just to hear her voice
You can’t tell
She wants to make you

So Happy....
Track Name: Break My Back
Break My Back

It seems it’s simple though / We question all time
Is it too far to go / While we are intertwined
I will carry you / I hope that we are close
If I can carry you / I hope that we are close

Many men have tried / Many tried and died
If we cannot pass / How long can we last
I will carry you / I hope that we are close
If I can carry you / I hope that we are close


Break my back
But do it slowly
Do it slowly

Break my back
But do it slowly
Do it slowly

And all of us
We’re going back down / Back to California
And some of us
We’re leaving some behind / Over there in Florida


You just wear me down (8 7 5 3 1)
been a long damn time without changing
and I can’t stand what you’ve been saying
(You can pull me down) (8 7 5 3 1)
and the whole world round us is changing
but our expectations are still the same
and I’d yell if you weren’t so crazy
and I’d call you if you weren’t so lazy
been a long damn time without changing
and you say these things that just break me
why don’t you care that life is like this
and it’s hard when your so full of spite, this
is breaking my back and you don’t say
You’re sorry it’s been so damn long
and it’s long cause you can’t just say it
or afraid that you not gonna make it
we’ve been through it all but it’s over now
Track Name: Sunrise
Sunrise

Sunrise, Sunrise as morning fills the room
Sunrise, Sunrise she always sleeps till noon
Sunrise, surprise it always slips away
Sunrise, you always rise for me, let your eyes bloom too
Sunrise soon.

Dreamt I was near you
Need to be near you
Feel you close
Feel the one who knows
who I am

Wake up and look at me
Why won’t you look at me?
Open your eyes
Open up your thighs
Here I am

Bleed till you don’t
don’t be afraid
I said I won’t
I will, if you don’t
Here I am

What will they say
I am ashamed
I don’t know
I would never go
Where I am
