Track Name: Spend The Night
you look like an angel, you got a beautiful soul.
Can I keep you company? I got nowhere to go.
Your skin tastes like candy, your hair's soft as snow.
The way that your green eyes shine makes
me wanna loose all of my sense of self control.
so enough with the dancin',
lets get to romancin' baby,
Let me show you what I wanna do to you…

Baby, I'm begging you.
Oh won't you spend the night?
I'll make you feel good,
I'll make you feel alright…

Your eyes are like diamonds, yeah they light up the room.
The second I saw you standing
staring at me from across the room I knew,
yeah that before the night ends.
I need you in my bed, baby
Let me show you what I wanna do to you…

Baby, I'm begging you.
Oh won't you spend the night?
I'll make you feel good,
I'll make you feel alright…


So enough with the dancin',
lets get to romancin',
baby let me show you what I wanna do to you..

Baby, I'm begging you.
Oh won't you spend the night?
I'll make you feel good,
I'll make you feel alright…

Track Name: Sleep
I've been waiting for you, all goddamn day.
Everytime you come around, no you ain't got much to say…
Well i've been waiting for ya, all goddamn week.
I've been spending every day getting wasted at the beach.
'Cause lately nothing matters since you left town,
I wish you would come around but I know I bring you down…

Darling, I need you, you're always on my mind.
I dream about you damn near every night.
But each day, I wake up.
you're never by my side,
so I just go right back to sleep…

Well i've been waiting for ya, for way too long.
I've been spending every night just singing out your song.
Lately nothing matters, since you went home.
I don't care about a thing now that i'm all alone

Darling, I need you, you're always on my mind.
I dream about you damn near every night.
But each day, I wake up.
you're never by my side,
so I just go right back to sleep…

Track Name: Katie
You were a shiny spanish day dream,
meant for the silver screen.
And I was a boy with nothing
I was high on fantasy.
And we would drive around,
every single night.
two kids stoned on ritalin,
weed, love, and adrenaline.

And I never meant to break your heart,
and I never wanted to grow apart.
And I hope you know i'm sorry,
yeah for always disregarding what you wanted…

Katie I don't understand,
what it means to be your man,
oh I let you down,
I'm the reason everything is wrong…

I don't see you all that often
since you decided you had your fill.
And though I know I never call
just know i think about you still.
And I hope you find a man,
one who will treat you right.
I hope he gives you everything,
that I could not provide.

And I know that I was never around,
and I apologize for bringing you down.
And I know I don't deserve you
and I'm sorry that I hurt you it's all my fault.

Katie I don't understand,
what it means to be your man,
oh I let you down,
I'm the reason everything is wrong…

Katie on the day you went your own way,
I swear the San Diego sun turned to the deepest color gray.
I think it rained all night,
I think it rained all night.

Katie I don't understand,
what it means to be your man,
oh I let you down,
I'm the reason everything is wrong…

Track Name: What We Know Is Wrong
Oh they've been lying right through their teeth,
and they control you through your TV screen.
So they can keep us, comfortable and numb,
they keep profiting oh yeah, while we keep getting dumb and stupid.
full of pills and debt.
I'm feeling hopeless, like a homeless vet.
I think that shows us, yeah that they don't care.
They don't care about anything oh yeah well

what we know is wrong.
what we know is wrong.
what we know is wrong.
what we know is wrong.

And they enslave us through big banks and oil,
that's why there's soldiers blood on foreign soil.
It's all for nothing, except for fucking cash.
They don't answer anything and they don't let you ask a damn thing. They keep us silent sheep, and they distract us with drugs and mtv. that's why there's poison on your dinner plates,
lets save ourselves before it's too late, let's shout out

what we know is wrong
what we know is wrong.
what we know is wrong.
what we know is wrong.
what we know is wrong..


(Laffoon/Norman)
Track Name: California Dreams
I met you on the boardwalk when we were younger
back home in mission bay,
your smile sparkled in the sun.
You lived right down the road
and your mom and dad they were never at home so
we just stayed there on our own...

We spent that summer making out and spinning records in your room.
I still remember your favorite song.
And we'd drive up the coast,
though we would have no place to go in mind.
Just trying to get away from it all…

Yeah we were just two kids livin' California Dreams.
But we grew to find that nothings ever as it seems.
And now you've gone away and there's nothing I can do.
I can't bring you back so I just flip through pictures of you…

Last month you moved away
with your brand new boyfriend to the San Francisco bay.
I heard you dyed your hair back blonde.
And I still feel you near every time I walk along Crystal Pier it seems
the oceans stealing part of my soul.

Yeah we were just two kids livin' California Dreams.
But we grew to find that nothings ever as it seems.
And now you've gone away and there's nothing I can do.
I can't bring you back so I just flip through pictures of you…


(Laffoon)
Track Name: Hurricane Darling
Oh I know, I know that you want me to come back and stay.
But I need time, to write you these records so I can get paid.
I know it's hard, but sometimes two hearts just can't help but break
apart, we are, I can't keep denying and lying,
I need you around.
Around.
Hurricane Darling I want you, I need you around.
Around.
Hurricane, Hurricane Darling I need you around…

Oh, you know, things have been lonely since you went away.
I'm on my own, things have been hard the nights seem so strange.
I tried to change, but sometimes a boy just can't act his age.
Just know that I miss you.
I can't keep denying and lying
I need you around.
Around.
Hurricane Darling I want you, I need you around.
Around.
Hurricane, Hurricane Darling I need you around…


(Laffoon/Warren/Norman)
Track Name: Diamond Street
Yeah I was raised on Diamond street
by a few wise men down by the beach.
Spent my early days on my board,
until a rastafari man taught me chords.

Yeah I grew up on rock and roll,
it gave me heart and it gave me soul.
It taught me how to free my mind,
how to stand up tall, don't stand in line.

Oh take me home to where I know,
the only place I wanna go,
Where everything just tastes so sweet.
To where I lived when I was young,
under the california sun,
'cause only one place feels like home to me.
that's down on diamond street.

Yeah I was raised right by the sea
where the salty air is all we breathe.
Where the days are short and the nights are long
under the San Diego sun.

Oh take me home to where I know,
the only place I wanna go,
Where everything just tastes so sweet.
To where I lived when I was young,
under the california sun,
'cause only one place feels like home to me.
that's down on diamond street.


(Laffoon)
Track Name: Somebody Else
Sadie you say you love me but,
you smell like tanquaray and cologne.
'cause I know you, better than you do,
and I can tell when there is something wrong.
'cause it's not like you to go,
out all night and never come home,
is there somebody else? oh is there somebody else?

Sadie you say you need me but,
baby I can tell that's a lie.
'Cause I've been calling and you never answer,
so won't you tell me whats been on your mind.
'Cause it's not like you to go
out all night and never come home,
is there somebody else? is there somebody else?

I'm just a lonely boy
I'm like a lovesick toy on the shelf (and i've been gathering)
dust just begging to be held (and i've been wondering)
when you're gonna come my way?
I hope you find a reason to stay…

Honey I know you need me but,
i've been living life on the run.
And you've been calling but i've been so busy baby,
but I swear that you're the only one.
And I stay in every night,
thinking 'bout home and hoping that you're alright,
no there's nobody else, No there's nobody else.

I'm just a lonely boy
I'm like a lovesick toy on the shelf (and i've been gathering)
dust just begging to be held (and i've been wondering)
when you're gonna come my way?
I hope you find a reason to stay…


(Laffoon/Norman)
Track Name: 16
Let's go for a drive, straight down to the beach.
We can hang out all day since it seems the summers in our reach.
We'll drive in my car, with the top rolled down.
And the radio turned up as we drive slow through downtown,
oh oh oh oh oh oh oh.

She's my little gypsy queen,
she's always dancing in my dreams,
she makes me feel just like i'm 16.
And I, I can't help that every time,
she comes around I lose my mind,
she makes me feel just like i'm 16…

Let's go out tonight, right down the 101.
Sometimes life's a drag but baby when you're nearby it's all fun.
So don't go anywhere, stay right by my side.
we can stay up all night until we see the stars turn to sunrise,
and oh oh oh oh oh oh oh.

She's my little gypsy queen,
she's always dancing in my dreams,
she makes me feel just like i'm 16.
And I, I can't help that every time,
she comes around I lose my mind,
she makes me feel just like i'm 16…

Baby I can take you all the way,
we can hide and chase your sad sack blues away.
So come with me now honey, grab your things let's getaway.

oh oh oh oh oh oh oh

She's my little gypsy queen,
she's always dancing in my dreams,
she makes me feel just like i'm 16.
And I, I can't help that every time,
she comes around I lose my mind,
she makes me feel just like i'm 16…



(Laffoon)
Track Name: Supermodel
Baby, it's not me it's you.
Lately I can't stand anything that you do.
I say maybe we need time on our own.
First things first, I wanna let you know...
Baby I'm going home, to fuck a supermodel…

Don't write or call, no baby don't bother me at all.
So glad your gone, I wish that you never came along.
Honey I don't wanna see you around,
so pack your bags, grab your keys, and then leave my town…

Baby, it's not me it's you.
Lately I can't stand anything that you do.
I say maybe we need time on our own.
First things first, I gotta let you know...
Baby I'm going home, to fuck a supermodel…

Don't say my name, 'cause all that you do is bring me pain.
I'm sick of games, so sick, so sick of all your games.
And I don't need you around anymore,
so walk your pretty ass right back through my front door.

Baby, it's not me it's you.
Lately I can't stand anything that you do.
I say maybe we need time on our own.
First things first, I gotta let you know...
Baby I'm going home, to fuck a supermodel…
