Track Name: James No Longer Works At The Liquor Store
it tore his heart in half when they broke it to him
the news came and went
slowly moving right through him
like a 10 hour shift
putting half his heart into it

what was left of it he tried to put in songs to sing
songs with bad titles
that's what half a heart brings
he styles his hair like a porcupine
cause he don't wanna be touched none of the time

he dreams of shooting quills at them

James no longer works at the liquor store

i will lend a helping hand
you can use the chorus of this song
as the name of your band
your mind is begging you to stop now
the songs that you write are lacking love
anyhow
like a 10 hour shift putting half your heart into it

James no longer works at the liquor store

i won't even take credit for it

put a little love in your
put a little love in your half heart
Track Name: I'm Excited About Your Feet
Serenade us ballerina's

I'm excited about your feet
as you serenade us to a rock n roll beat

I'm excited about your feet
as you serenade us to a rock n roll beat
so tippy toed
when your at the microphone
so come on

we'll watch them ballet step to their songs

Watch out for the danger
watch out
don't let them make you switch back now

Cause i'm excited about your feet
and the way there moving to the beat

Serenade us ballerina's
we are so glad you made the switch
your songs will curl and twitch
as your feet once did
I'm excited about your feet
as they serenade us to a rock n roll beat
so tippy toed
when your at the microphone

So come on
come on
we'll watch them ballet step to their songs

I'm excited about your feet
and the way there moving to the beat.

Track Name: Cardboard Champion Belt
Two pairs of basement boxing gloves
in my backyard
a ring made from hockey skate string in my backyard
kids from up and down the block
working oh so hard
kids form up and down the block
getting knocked
getting knocked out so hard

Cardboard Champion
that's what they wanna be
Cardboard Champion Belt
that's what they wanna win

Ah go on and knock him out

Grass stained elbows knees and feet
in my backyard
it comes down to just one kid to beat
in my backyard
he's a real tough cookie form up the street
he has a left hook
that he throws oh so hard
the slim kid with the real quick feet
applies an uppercut
knocking him out so hard

Cardboard Champion
that's what they wanna be
Cardboard Champion Belt
that's what they wanna win

now go on and win it

but exactly how long's a little while?
I kinda had a hunch
that's what you wanted anyway

okay
to want to runaway

run away with your love

We made an oath
when we were younger
you know that we were gonna be with each other
but now i know
we're gonna die
in separate lives
far from each other
I kinda had a hunch
that's what you wanted anyway
anyway it's okay
it's
okay
you know to wanna runaway

run away with your love
