Track Name: Grace (Demo)
She trips, she falls, she’s such a pun,
is she the one to everyone
a product of life on the beach
and just my type of out of reach
even if our logic’s round,
I still like the way we sound
canceling each other’s doubt,
from guessing what this night’s about

Understanding when we leave,
both of us have lives to lead,
to find somebody else’s soul,
is only hypothetical

And everyone falls in love with her,
does everyone fall in love with her,
when someone looks into your eyes
are you surprised that you’re surprised
does everyone fall in love with me,
am I some Judeo-Christian thief, 

stealing everyone’s belief
that girls like that just come to be.

We’re two Pseudo-intellectuals,
quoting books and judging souls
thinking that we’re much too smart,
for breaking someone else’s heart

We philosophize on life,
she claims nothings wrong or right
we talk fate and we talk chance,
analyzing our romance

And she’ll dance
(is she the one to everyone)

the beautiful, ironic truth,
she turned around and tricked me too
funny how much shit gets by,
by looking people in the eye

Living like she reads in books,
casting off those hateful looks,
all those looks can’t hold her tight,
when nothing’s ever wrong or right
so she can please her appetite.

And everyone falls in love with her,
does everyone fall in love with her,
when someone looks into your eyes,
are you surprised that you're surprised,
a girl with money in her voice, enough religion to rejoice,
who’s smiles and laughs were never forced,
who’s parents never got divorced.

She trips she falls, she’s such a pun.
Is she the one to everyone?
Track Name: Staying Up Late (Demo)
I’ve been one upped on emotion
one upped on tumbling down
after we leave the commotion
hoping you’re sticking around

Keep me up ‘til three in the morning
‘cause all your stars are out
tell me something wild or boring
just as long as you make it count
I know, you know, we know, we got nothing to say
we’ll keep staying up late and keep on acting this way

I’ve been one upped on outrageous
One upped on telling a joke
We filled our soul up with spirits
We filled our minds up with smoke

Keep me up ‘til three in the morning
‘cause all your stars are out
tell me something wild or boring
just as long as you make it count
I know, you know, we know, we got nothing to say
we’ll keep staying up late and keep on acting this way

And I’m not lonely, unless you’re lonely too
no I’m not lonely, unless you’re lonely too, unless you’re lonely too.

Turns out I’m thoroughly average
that’s how I know I’ll be fine
I’ll just keep letting you happen
and keep it all in my mind

keep me up ‘til three in the morning
cause all your stars are out
tell me something wild or boring
just as long as you make it count
I know, you know, we know, we’re doing okay
we’ll keep staying up late and keep on acting this way

And I’m not human, unless you’re human too
no I’m not human, unless you’re human too, unless you’re human
and I’m not tired, and you’re not tired
So we’re not tired, no we’re not tired,
no we’re not tired, no we’re not tired,
no we’re not tired, we’re not, we’re not, we’re -

*Unbelievably awesome guitar solo*
