Track Name: Black Light
Folding chairs and paper cups
This room we share isn't big enough
For her not to have noticed me
As she takes her seat
Six inch heels on her feet

She's taking her twelve steps
Feet haven't hit the floor
Lips pursed around a cigarette
With one foot out the door
Well hindsight is twenty twenty
But it felt too good to stop
Of all the sacrifices that I've made
You're the only vice that I couldn't bare to drop

We are all so far from home
Who's there to point their fingers

Take off your black tie
You're in the black light
The subject of debate
Feel like you'll suffocate
We're in the rewind
But we don't mind
Sick from sitting still
Arms on the window sill
Eyes open looking down
You're not a child now
The skin you barely fit, I
Sink my teeth into it

You're in the black light
You're in the black
Track Name: Chinese Finger Traps
Sit still and keep quiet kids
Cause momma's going out tonight
There is no blanket thick enough to keep me warm
Since your daddy left

The babysitter should be here by now
The babysitter should be here by now
It's momma's night to go out on the town
(And) live like she used to
Before you

It's not that momma doesn't love you
It's just surprising how fast life can change
Even though you weren't part of my plans
You're still the best mistakes I've ever made

I won't be home till very late tonight
So here's an extra twenty to tuck them in
And if they ask where I was
I was at their grandma's
Don't want my kids to know
Where momma's been

It's not that momma doesn't love you
It's just surprising how fast life can change
Even though you weren't part of my plans
You're still the best mistakes I've ever made

But I'll take care of you
No matter what
Unlike your coward for a father
Track Name: Mr. Wright Now
Yeah I've got a feeling
That everyone's cold
When I started thinking
I've got nothing to show
For myself
Anymore

Bad news after a bottle of wine
Yeah, you're in my bed
But he's on your mind
Keep acting like we've done nothing wrong
But you know
If he knew
What we do
He'd leave you for good

Hello girl, nice to meet you
I'll give you what you're afraid to ask for
No, I'm not Mr. Right
I'm Mr. Wright now
Hello girl, nice to meet you
Leave your heels on your feet but your dress on the floor
I'm not Mr. Right
I'm Mr. Wright now

Is there something wrong with that
No

Can you keep a secret

Hello girl, nice to meet you
I'll give you what you're afraid to ask for
No, I'm not Mr. Right
I'm Mr. Wright now
Hello girl, nice to meet you
Leave your heels on your feet but your dress on the floor
I'm not Mr. Right
I'm Mr. Wright now

I'm not Mr. Right
I'm Mr. Wright now
I used to be a keeper
Track Name: Capoeira
You work too hard
Everyone's got their secrets
Trying hard to meet things in the middle
Of the right and wrong
A wrong that feels so right
Can you sacrifice tomorrow for tonight
Cause the more you think
The less you need
And who's got time to need anymore

I hope they find me here
I hope they find me here
I hope they find me here
I hope they find me here

No you can't find your way back to home
You've lost track of your bread crumbs
Doesn't matter how much you might miss it
If this is it you better get used to it quick

Go slow down
Down to the ground
Let yourself turn to dirt
No they can't make you hurt
Anymore than it does
When it turns itself to was
I hope they find me here
