Track Name: Stray
In some dark corner you can stay love
but they'll use you all up
But I'm just some little stray waiting
to follow you home and get you all alone

I gotta' do it again before I get scared

Well it's no wonder you ever thought that
could fix up your past
I just don't care to ask another
"Is your heart mine?"
The city will decide

I gotta' do it again before I get scared

But don't you know
that there's a star tonight
and it looks alright
Track Name: Watching Yourself Disappear
Another day alone and I won't be alright
but that's what I do
Standing all alone on the bus ride home
well it makes me nervous

Oh well I could change all the things that I like to do
I could change anything if you asked me to, it's true
but I don't know what to do

And I don't know why I try

I never really thought that I could be so cold
but I'm trying to make it better
Staring back at her the whole ride home
and she thinks it's creepy

Oh well if I step in your direction do I lose my place?
It's just the fear of never knowing couldn't be erased, it's true
I'm in love with you

But I don't know why i try

It's like watching yourself disappear
(I'm wide awake, and I'm almost ready; I'm already gone)
