There’s something going on, I think we both know it’s been gone on way too long All of the feeling’s gone, There’s no chemistry Who is responsible? You're looking guilty And as far as I know I never a played a part in any of this Can you see that, baby, I’m afraid That every choice that I have ever made Has led me here but there’s nothing I can do You’re everything to me I’ll never be to you So what’s the story? Did you ignore me Or was it unintentional? Did I mistake you for an arsehole? Can you see that, baby, I’m afraid That every choice that I have ever made Has led me here but there’s nothing I can do You’re everything to me I’ll never be to you I still get lonely I can’t remember what my life was like before Was I too boring? Was I soul destroying? Can you see that, baby, I’m afraid That every choice that I have ever made Has led me here but there’s nothing I can do You’re everything to me I’ll never be to you Oh, you’re everything to me I’ll never be to you Oh, you’re everything to me I’ll never be to you

Wreck 02:52
It’s in the silence that I start to fall apart I hate the way you’re running rings around my heart I’m growing tense, I feel ashamed Will I ever be myself again? I don’t know if I’ll ever be myself again I’m a wreck This could kill me, I should quit while I’m ahead And give in But if I don't play there’s no way I can win There’s something in your voice that makes me feel so small Why do I care about things that are trivial? I’m throwing caution to the wind I don’t know how it will end No, I don’t know how it will end I’m a wreck This could kill me, I should quit while I’m ahead And give in But if I don't play there’s no way I can win One good turn deserves another You don’t feel the same, but I’m still in love, oh

Cassini 02:26
Countdown Until we let go You had it coming You’re going solo An expedition of the lonely; engines ignite You’re on a mission, baby, better play your cards right Think back October fifteen The day you left me I thought it was a dream Send me a picture of the planet that you’re orbiting I’m still here and you’re going on to better things Don’t destroy yourself for me I just wanna know what it’s like out there, Cassini Don’t destroy yourself for me Oh, I just wanna know what it’s like I just wanna know what it’s like Silence Another broken heart Did you feel anything When it tore you apart? Even though we knew that someday you would disappear  It didn’t make it any easier Don’t destroy yourself for me I just wanna know what it’s like out there, Cassini Don’t destroy yourself for me Oh, I just wanna know what it’s like I just wanna know what it’s like
