Let’s run away from these lies
Back to yesterday, save tonight

We’ll just keep running from tomorrow with our lips locked
Yeah, you got me begging, begging

04. Cooler Than Me
(Hook)
If I could write you a song to make you fall in love
I would already have you up under my arm
I used up all my tricks, I hope that you like this
But, you probably won’t, you think you’re cooler than me
You got designer shades just to hide your face
And you wear ’em around like you’re cooler than me
And you never say hey, or remember my name
And it’s probably ’cause you think you’re cooler than me

(Verse 1)
You got your high brow, shoes on your feet
And you wear ’em around like it ain’t shit
But you don’t know the way that you look
When your steps make that much noise

Shh, I got you all figured out
You need everyone’s eyes just to feel seen
Behind your make up nobody knows who you even are
Who do you think that you are

(Hook)
If I could write you a song to make you fall in love
I would already have you up under my arm
I used up all my tricks, I hope that you like this
But, you probably won’t, you think you’re cooler than me
You got designer shades just to hide your face
And you wear ’em around like you’re cooler than me
And you never say hey, or remember my name
And it’s probably ’cause you think you’re cooler than me

(Verse 2)
You got your high brow, switchin’ your walk
And you don’t even look when you pass by
But you don’t know the way that you look
When your steps make that much noise

Shh, I got you all figured out
You need everyone’s eyes just to feel seen
Behind your make up nobody knows who you even are
Who do you think that you are

(Bridge)
‘Cause it’s your scene, (it’s your scene)
I got no doubt
We all see
You got your head in the clouds

(Hook)
If I could write you a song to make you fall in love
I would already have you up under my arm
I used up all my tricks, I hope that you like this
But, you probably won’t, you think you’re cooler than me
You got designer shades just to hide your face
And you wear ’em around like you’re cooler than me
And you never say hey, or remember my name
And it’s probably ’cause you think you’re cooler than me

05. Déjà Vu (feat. Boyz II Men)
(Hook)
Let’s go back, I know it’s been a minute
But I can do it better than I did when I did it
You were loving me, I was loving you
You can come over and we can have déjà vu
We could have déjà vu
You could come over and

(Verse 1: Mike Posner and Boyz II Men)
I’m probably gonna compliment your hairdo
Right before we mess that shit all up
(Mess that shit all up)
I used to keep you out way past your curfew
Look at me now, I’m all grown up
(Look at me now, I’m grown up)
She was reminiscing in her mind
I’m just trying to make up for lost time
Don’t be acting nervous
‘Cause we’ve been here before

(Hook)
Let’s go back, I know it’s been a minute
But I can do it better than I did when I did it
You were loving me, I was loving you
You can come over and we can have déjà vu
We could have déjà vu
You could come over and

(Verse 2: Mike Posner and Boyz II Men)
I’m probably gonna compliment your outfit
(Your outfit)
Right before you take that shit all off
(Take that shit all off)
Remember we would sneak out of our houses?
(Our houses)
Look at us now, we’re all grown up
(Yeah baby, look at us now, we’re grown up)
She was reminiscing in her mind
I’m just trying to make up for lost time
Don’t be acting nervous
‘Cause we’ve been here before

(Hook)
Let’s go back, I know it’s been a minute
But I can do it better than I did when I did it
You were loving me, I was loving you
You can come over and we can have déjà vu (déjà vu)
We could have déjà vu (déjà vu)
You could come over and

(Verse 3: Mike Posner and Boyz II Men)
Nothing much has changed
You still feel the same
Don’t pretend like you don’t
Want to like I do
I know you think about
What it would feel like now
Come over, let’s make a new memory

(Hook)
Let’s go back, I know it’s been a minute
But I can do it better than I did when I did it
You were loving me, I was loving you
You can come over and we can have déjà vu (déjà vu)
We could have déjà vu (déjà vu)
You could come over and

06. Do U Wanna?
(Verse 1)
I wake up early in the morning
You go to sleep late at night
I kinda front like I don’t want you
Inside I’m losing my mind

(Pre-Bridge)
Do you wanna be my baby?
Do you wanna be my girl?

(Verse 2)
Don’t tell me that you got a boyfriend
Don’t tell me I’m not your type
Let’s do a little less talkin’
And a little more, little more, little more feelin’ right

(Hook)
Do you wanna be my baby?
Do you wanna be my girl?
Do you wanna be my baby?
Do you wanna be my girl?

(Bridge)
Let it breathe, Let it breathe
Let it breathe, Let it breathe

(Verse 3)
I like to play hard to get
I walk around talkin’ shit
But you know just what I need
See I don’t got time for games
And I cant afford diamond rings
But you know you know you know you should be with me (be, be with me)

(Hook)
Do you wanna be my baby? (say it, baby)
Do you wanna be my girl?
Do you wanna be my baby? (would you be my baby?)
Do you wanna be my girl?

07. Cheated
(Verse 1)
No one could tell me
That you were right for me girl
You could have told me
To run a lap around the world

(Pre-Chorus)
All that time I was hypnotized
While you (uh) behind my back
Now my mind keeps me up all night
Why’d you have to say bye like that?

(Chorus)
I should have cheated on you
I was everything you wanted and more
I should have cheated on you
Nobody told me I was dating a whore
I should have cheated, cheated, cheated
I should have cheated, cheated, cheated
I should have cheated, cheated, cheated
I should have cheated, cheated, cheated

(Verse 2)
My friends should have told me
You weren’t the one for me girl
(You weren’t the one for me girl)
‘Cause you almost sold me
I bought a rock for you girl
(I bought a rock)

(Pre-Chorus)
All that time I was hypnotized
While you uh behind my back
Now my mind keeps me up all night
Why’d you have to say bye like that?

(Chorus)
I should have cheated on you
I was everything you wanted and more
I should have cheated on you
Nobody told me I was dating a whore
I should have cheated, cheated, cheated
I should have cheated, cheated, cheated
I should have cheated, cheated, cheated
I should have cheated, cheated, cheated
I should have cheated…

(Bridge)
Liar, lie
Hey girl
You gon tell all your friends
That I’m talking about you
I’m talking about you
You gon’ tell, you gon’ tell
All your friends
That I’m talking about you
I’m talking about you
I’m talking about you
Caroline Stephens
This song is for you

(Chorus)
I should have cheated on you
I was everything you wanted and more
I should have cheated on you
Nobody told me I was dating a whore
(dating a, dating a)
I should have cheated, cheated, cheated
(cheated on you)
I should have cheated, cheated, cheated
(I shoulda, I shoulda)
I should have cheated, cheated, cheated
(cheated on you)
I should have cheated, cheated, cheated
I should have cheated on you

08. Gone in September
(Verse 1)
I used to be a sweetheart
I used to be all right
I tell myself I love you
But I’m creeping every night
When I met you at the party
And I told you, you were pretty
I was honestly just trying to score
But you made me wait a week
Just to kiss you on the cheek
Now it’s breaking my heart to break yours

(Chorus)
I said I love you in the summer
But will I love you in the fall?
I thought I wasn’t like the others
Guess I’m an asshole after all
Come September I’ll be gone, gone, gone
Come September I’ll be gone, gone, gone

(Verse 2)
I used to be a good guy
I used to be all right
I tell myself I love you
But I’m creeping every night
When I met you at the party
And I told you, you were pretty
I was honestly just trying to score

(Chorus)
I said I love you in the summer
But will I love you in the fall?
I thought I wasn’t like the others
Guess I’m an asshole after all
Come September I’ll be gone, gone, gone
Come September I’ll be gone, gone, gone
Whoa whoa, whoa whoa, gone, gone, gone
Come September I’ll be gone, gone, gone
I’d be lying if I said I didn’t feel bad
I’ve been trying but I just can’t get the feel back
When did I become one, one, one of the bad guys?

(Chorus)
I said I love you in the summer
I love you in the summer
But will I love you in the fall?
I lo-lo-love you in the fall
I thought I wasn’t like the others
I wasn’t like the others
Guess I’m an asshole after all
Come September I’ll be gone, gone, gone
Come September I’ll be gone, gone, gone
Whoa whoa, whoa whoa, gone, gone, gone
You’re gonna miss me when I am gone, gone, gone, gone

09. Save Your Goodbye
(Verse 1)
Excuse me, your heart is in my heart
Hello, you’ve taken this too far
Am I just a piece you push in your board game?
Have you been laughing all day long?
You like it when it’s hard for me to see straight
You make it go on and on and on and on and on

(Chorus)
Save your goodbye
You’re everywhere I go
You’re everywhere I go
You’re everywhere I go, go, go

(Verse 2)
Beg your pardon, you’re standing on my love
Hello, have you not had enough?
Am I just a piece you push in your board game?
Have you been laughing all day long?
You like it when it’s hard for me to see straight
You make it go on and on and on and on and on

(Chorus)
Save your goodbye
You’re everywhere I go
You’re everywhere I go
You’re everywhere I go, go, go, go, go

Save your goodbye
You’re everywhere I go
You’re everywhere I go
You’re everywhere I go, go, go, go, go

(Verse 3)
It’s my time to shine
And my sword is trembling
You’re back inside my mind
I can’t stop remembering
I say I’m chasing dreams but you know I’ve been
Running away from, running away from you
Some sort of comfort in your pain
I can’t help from taking
No matter how I change
There will be no escaping
I say I’m chasing time but you know I’ve been
Running away from, running away from you

(Chorus)
Save your goodbye
You’re everywhere I go
You’re everywhere I go
You’re everywhere I go, go, go, go, go

Save your goodbye
You’re everywhere I go
You’re everywhere I go
You’re everywhere I go, go, go, go, go

10. Synthesizer
(Verse 1)
Fake your way through a conversation
Tell her all the things you wish were true
Maybe you’re the voice of a generation
And a princess somewhere waits for you
But if you’re never gonna change the world
If you’re never gonna be a movie star
If you’re never gonna change the world
Maybe you’re looking too hard

(Chorus)
Don’t synthesizer
Don’t re-design her
She’s no prize for
A synthesizer

(Verse 2)
Pretend you meet your own expectations
Add another name below your list
Maybe you’re the next worldwide sensation
You probably know a thousand ones like this
But if you’re never gonna change the world
If you’re never gonna be a movie star
If you’re never gonna change the world
Maybe you’re looking too hard

(Chorus)
Don’t synthesizer
Don’t re-design her
She’s no prize for
A synthesizer

(Verse 3)
Who you gonna call when the spotlight flickers?
What you gonna do when your curtain falls?
Maybe you could make them not remember
Maybe you won’t end up alone

(Chorus)
Don’t synthesizer (synthesizer)
Don’t re-design her
She’s no prize for (she’s no prize for)
A synthesizer (synthesizer)

Synthesizer
Re-design her
She’s no prize for
Synthesizer

11. Delta 1406
(Chorus)
I can’t come down
Not today, I feel alright
They believe every word I say
And it seems so jaded
Every place I go, it feels so jaded
There’s people all around but I’m all alone

(Verse 1)
The clock in my head won’t stop ticking, ticking
The phone in my hand rings all day long
I’ve been in L.A. almost five months now
I try to pretend that it feels like home
Maybe I flew too far
Shooting stars leave no mark

(Chorus)
I can’t come down
Not today, I feel alright
They believe every word I say
And it seems so jaded
Every place I go, it feels so jaded
There’s people all around but I’m all alone

(Verse 1)
I know my dad only got a few years now
He gon’ cry when he hears this song
And things with mom become so weird now
I gotta book hotels for my Detroit shows
Maybe I flew too far
Shooting stars leave no mark

(Chorus)
I can’t come down
Not today, I feel alright
They believe every word I say
And it seems so jaded
Every place I go, it feels so jaded
There’s people all around but I’m all alone

12. Falling
Well alright
Oh oh lord
Well alright
Oh oh lord
Well alright
Oh lord
Well alright

(Verse 1)
Drive your high heel into my heart
I don’t even care
‘Cause my pride is worth much more than your
Your stupid little love
Every word that you say keeps on bouncing around in my head
When all my delusions of grandeur have turned into bad jokes instead
You’ll be there pointing and laughing to prove you were wiser than I
Well I’m just pretending perfection
I’m flying uncomfortably high

(Chorus)
It feels like I’m falling
It feels like I’m falling
It feels like I’m all in
It feels like I’m falling

(Verse 1)
Drive your high heel into my heart
‘Cause I don’t even care
My pride is worth much more than your
Your stupid, your stupid little love
Every word that you say keeps on bouncing around in my head
When all my delusions of grandeur have turned into bad jokes instead
You’ll be there pointing and laughing to prove you were wiser than I
Well I’m just pretending perfection
I’m flying uncomfortably high

(Chorus)
It feels like I’m falling (2x)
It feels like I’m falling (2x)
It feels like I’m all in (2x)
It feels like I’m falling (2x)

It feels like I’m falling (2x)
It feels like I’m falling (2x)
It feels like I’m all in (2x)
It feels like I’m falling (2x)

Well alright
Oh lord
Well alright
Oh lord
Oh lord
