Track Name: We Are Still Young
It's the third of the month
we forgot to pay the rent
I hurried up and mailed it but
forgot to put on a stamp

I'll call and explain to the landlord
you say "what if he's mad?"
I think he'll probably understand
when he was our age I'm sure he did stuff like that

We are still young
We are still young
We are still so young

People say we should get a house
they say renting is for kids
but looking at our paychecks
there's no room for mortgages

She buys lots of pretty clothes
and I keep putting money in my car
but when she dresses up and we go for a drive
I guess that's who we really are

We are still young
We are still young
We are still so young

There's no food in the fridge
we get in a fight
about whose job that is
for half the night

Then at some point we start laughing
we go out to eat
forget to go shopping, come back home
watch TV and fall asleep

bills are piling up on the table
dishes are filling the sink
sometimes I worry we can't handle it all
ah, but then I think

We are still young
We are still young
We are still so young

We are still young
We are still young
We are still so so
It takes time to grow grow
we are still so so young
Track Name: I Haven't Been Taking Good Care of Myself
Been eating drive through
With all the traveling
The car smells like french fries
And clothes I forgot to bring in

Coffee spilled everywhere
I just let it soak in
Siren behind me
Missed a stop sign again

I guess

I haven't been taking very good care of myself
Unaware of myself
I haven't showered or shaved
In a number of days
Oh and it would be good for my health
If I could picture myself
With you

Smoke alarm sounding
Every meal I make
Through these thin walls I can hear
The neighbors complain

The carpet is stained
Holes in the plaster
Being apart from you
How am I not supposed to be a disaster

You can probably tell that I
Haven't been taking such good care
Not been aware of myself
I haven't showered or shaved
In a number of days
Oh but it would be good for my health
If I could just picture myself
With you

Oh I haven't been taking good care of myself
I've not been aware of myself
I haven't showered or shaved
In I don't know how many days
Oh but it would be good for my health
If I could picture myself
With you
Track Name: A Whole Lot Going On
Ever since
I got her phone number the other day
I've been leaving messages on top of messages to say
I'd like to see you again someday

Every time
She picks up there's someone on the other line
But it's fine, I don't mind, I've got time
She must have a whole lot going on

How I dream
Of telling her just what she does to me
But I guess I just have to wait and see
She must have a whole lot going on

Now I'm sure
She's working two jobs
Taking care of her mom
And doing all the things she needs to do
Oh but I
Wish she knew how much that I
Just want to be with her
Doesn't matter
Doing laundry
Going shopping
Making food

But here I wait
In what you might call a pathetic state
Waiting for her to call me night and day
Ah, I guess she must just have a lot going on

She must have a whole lot
All I need is one shot now
Oh man she must just really really have a whole lot
Going on
