  1. I barely had the GPA to make it out of Eugene / You can blame it on me with the ADHD while I'm falling asleep during SATs
    "Heartbreak Dreamer"
  2. I heard you were back with regrets and you meant it / I had a reply to your text, never sent it
    "Moving On"
  3. Mama said we're sixth generation Oregonians / I was rocking them Jordans with reflector tongues
    "Just Kids"
  4. Before I put you in those boxes and we learned how to disagree / And how your family is a rocket that blows up in infidelity
    "Just Kids"
  5. Had me going the very first night / Waved goodbye your keys locked inside
    "Billion"
  6. You put too much salt on everything you eat / Wake up freezing cus I stole the sheets / Talk to the wall, pop your gum in your sleep, you're the only one
    "Billion"
  7. Mama told me angels were watching us in our green Volkswagon van / In the city of hippies and angel dust, singing along to her Amy Grant

  8. Packed up in Eugene Oregon, Amtrak wearing soccer cleats / Headed south to California, conference player of the week / At night I dreamed of Graceland, stealing my friend Kyle's guitar

  11. Thousand cap room and only eight people came / and five on the guest list were under my name
    "Los Angeles"
  12. I think that's Letterman, he just said my name / Check the crowd at the House of Blues like they're cardboard fakes

  13. If our love is a hurricane of broken phones and broken doors / Baby you know I can stand the rain, let it lift us off the floor
    "The Conversation"
  14. Running from the blue lights / Jumping trains at midnight / Never more alone or more alive
    "Shasta"
  15. Pocket clutch on the VW / Throwing pebbles at your window / As we roll away in the pouring rain / College Hill water tower lights / Singing out in the holy night / Lord tell me you're not done with me yet
    "Shasta"
  16. But the evergreens and caffeine still remind me of you
    "Coming Home (Oregon)"
