Track Name: Miracle Braves
Of all the nights it's not the time to be away
There's no one there to say the things that I would say
And I would say
Remember how we'll feel this summer by a lake
Remember all todays fade into yesterdays

And none of this shit’s gonna matter
It ain’t gonna matter
It ain’t gonna matter at all
No none of this shit’s gonna matter
It ain’t gonna matter
It ain’t gonna matter at all
And I say hey batter batter yeah hey batter batter
When you’re swinging and you’re missing the ball
No none of this shit’s gonna matter at all

Of all the times it's not the night to be away
There's no one there to say the things that I would say
And I would say
We won't lay down we don't know how it's not our way
We fight with all we got like the Miracle Braves

There'll be days so bright & so nights so sweet
We'll laugh the shoes right off our feet
You won't recall how bad it stung
I’ll say which eye's the funny one
We'll have enough we won't need more
One day we’ll even up the score
We may be down but we’re not done
When odds are 1,000 to 1
Track Name: 1996
There were days when the city and those boys
And St Mark's and that noise
Were the only things I cared about at all
Ran around arms wide eyes shut
Full of faith full of luck
I never ever worried bout the fall
It's been years since the night or a band
Or simply holding hands
Made me feel like l could burst apart and die
Now I'm feelin the way I did then
Yeah I'm reeling again
I don't have to say you know the reason why

My heart stopped when they played that song
Do you feel that too god it's been so long
You make me feel like 1996

Those were days when I'd make new friends
Cuz we had the same pins
that obviously meant we'd get along
One look at an all-ages show
From a boy I didn't know
Was enough to make me think I was in love
Back then every day was exciting
Every place was inviting
Everything was fate and nothing was by chance
Not since I was that wild skinny kid
Have I felt like I did
When they all ditched and we stayed out to dance.

You came close I was trembling
Could you hear my heart cuz it was deafening
You make me feel like 1996

Boy the world hasn't felt so true
Like it did back then as when I'm hangin out with you
Back before I had walked through fire
Before the road got hard and my back grew tired
Summer seemed longer loving came easier
No one knew the Strokes and everyone loved Weezer
Young and doomed but we didn't know it yet
We'd spill out of the club drenched in other people’s sweat
Make me feel like it's real like I'm up to my old tricks
Make me feel like that girl like I did back in 1996
Track Name: Worthwhile
You fell asleep your body strewn across mine
I lay awake the city humming round me
I wanna keep these memories tucked inside me
Like winter acorns hidden in a pine tree

The word for touch taught a diner napkin
The site of crooked teeth that make the perfect smile
Oh when you go I'll have these little bits of you
A love not meant to last is still a love worthwhile

Up on a street where dreamers dream of waking
We slept and I was dreaming we were sleeping
Our fingers reached oceans outside our window
Water was warm and nobody was leaving

But when we wake to find the waves between us
I hope you'll picture me with blue eyes bright and dry
Spaghetti limbs at peace on your side of the bed
A love not meant to last is still a love worthwhile

I have a spot that’s way down deep
For things that I don’t get to keep

I’m drifting off before the movie’s over
A tired balloon deflated on your shoulder
I hope you keep these feelings wrapped around you
Like winter layers to warm you when it's colder

A set of hands that tried to memorize you
A pair of lungs that tried to breathe you for awhile
Mi corazon se estrella con tu corazon
A love not meant to last is still a love worthwhile
Well I’ll be waving with a smile
A love not meant to last is still a love worthwhile
Track Name: 2nd Date
Let's face it they all thought we were too old for this
Eyes seeing stars kissing in bars
Falling in love like kids
And now I'll admit some days it seemed farfetched at best
I could still get swept off my keds
Tumbling heels-over-head

Maybe some wanna wait for sparks but they just don’t know how
Thinking if it was gonna happen it would have by now
But I woulda stood out in the rain for an eternity
Waiting for bright lightning to strike waiting for you & me
Cuz I knew it’d feel like coming home
And there you are the porch light’s on
I sing a song I’ve never sung
With words familiar on my tongue
I’ve never been through here before
But see my footprints so well-worn
I’m running home
And the porch light’s on

Well we don’t recall exactly what we did that night
Just that we knew something was true
Something was real and right
Did you wonder if the time for that had come and gone
For feeling sure something in this world
Was worth betting it all on

I guess some scan the skies looking for signs but don’t know why
Thinkin it should’ve happened now it must have passed me by
But I woulda stood out with my telescope unendingly
Waiting for that comet to pass the one that was meant for me

Well who cares if they all think that we’re too old for this
Eyes seeing stars, kissing in bars
Falling in love like kids
And we don’t need to remember what we did that night
Just that we knew something was true
Something was real and right
Just that we felt asteroid belt-
Bound up into the sky
Eyes seeing stars kissing in bars
Falling in love for life
