The Science of Letting On Nashville, Tennessee

Track Name: Fade
Fade

I remember the story or did I mess it up?
How we drank our liquor from a paper cup
I smoked your cigarettes - made you my own
We spent nights making love just talking on the phone

There is no sinner to save
It's just a memory that fades

And it comes and it goes and you know
You're lonely and you're just afraid
Of how it feels when it falls and it calls
To former loves and better days
But now it all seems to fade

I remember the mornings I couldn't wake you up
You tried to drink yourself sober instead of breaking up
I kissed you on the mouth - lost a piece of my soul
I miss you even now - we'll never grow old

There is no reason or rhyme
It's just a moment left in time

And it comes and it goes and you know
You're lonely and you're just afraid
Of how it feels when it falls and it calls
To former loves and better days
But now it all seems to fade

You were so afraid of love
I was hanging on to us
Wherever you are now
Know I'm dreaming

And it comes and it goes and you know
You're lonely and you're just afraid
Of how it feels when it falls and it calls

And it comes and it goes and you know
You're lonely and you're just afraid
Of how it feels when it falls and it calls
To former loves and better days
But now it all seems to fade

Now it all seems to fade
Oh you know how it goes
How it all seems to fade

Track Name: Hipstamatic Shot
Hipstamatic Shot

We can’t just keep running
From the ghosts we know are coming
Sometimes we stop to catch our breath
and take a Hipstamatic shot

We’re creative when we're lonely
And sadistic when we're funny
Distraction is the best home remedy
For self inflicted wounds

I can see the sun is out
To turn our frowns right upside down
We are so afraid of what we’re not
Everybody knows what we’re not
But everything looks better now
In a Hipstamatic shot

As failure hides the glory
We live to tell the story
Just put it on a t-shirt
and don't ever let the truth get in the way

We can't be too humble
But we can be too honest
Love sinks its teeth into our innocence
and leaves a telling mark

I can see the sun is out
To turn our frowns right upside down
We are so afraid of what we’re not
But everything looks better now
In a Hipstamatic shot

I need a California sun tan, baby
To burn this blues away
I need a New York kind of game plan, mama
My little empire here to stay

Ooh…
