Annie 02:54
Annie, forget about your husband tonight With your children sleeping safe and tight Let's dance like it's supposed to be I know you know our secret is safe with me And Annie, there's something about the dangerous game I think I'm starting now to feel your pain So Annie won't you take my hand? Let's make out and dance to the cover band As the freaks start arriving doing lines in the bathroom I'll give you the love that you don't get in your bedroom I know a thing or two about shame To follow your heart is a gambling game But Annie I don't care what happens to you and me And Annie, tell me about your God one more time I'd like to take him and replace him with mine Cause mine won't let me see the light Convincing me it's wrong when it feels so right I think I'll take the moment I think I'll take the moment I think I'll take the moment I think I'll take the moment Because Annie I don't care what happens to you and me Annie I don't care what happens to you and me Annie I don't care what happens to you and me Annie I don't care what happens to you and me Annie I don't care what happens to you and me

Well we exchanged a couple words Then we exchanged a couple more Wow, you're actually really cool I didn't expect that at all I guess I'd gotten pretty weathered from the bitch of it all I guess I'd gotten pretty weathered from the bitch of it all So you're friends with a friend Who left a minute ago I saw you standing alone I held my breath, then I said "Hello," Well I happened upon you And It felt pretty good I'll buy us a round And get a couple smokes from my car Let's hide the beer from the bouncer And run across the street Like a couple of kids who's parents Don't know where their kids are As night started turning to morning I felt like I knew you before Like a deja vu being split in two I'd opened a door She said, "It's late I've got to go As we embraced, she whispered in my ear "They say it's healthy to have at least six hugs a day" I said, "Who are they?" She said, "They are they" I said, "Kisses must be ten times healthier than hugs" I went into kiss her She said, "I'm sorry, I'm seeing someone." Well, I happened upon you and it felt pretty good And it felt pretty good, and it felt pretty good Well, I happened upon you and it felt pretty good And it felt pretty good, and it felt pretty good

There's a first time for everything That one summer you were house-sitting I think you heard from a friend I was a virgin So after the party In our teacher's bed You took me in I was afraid that I wouldn't last I was right, yeah I didn't last But what I'll always remember was a couple days later In our teacher's bed You took me in again I was on acid and you were on mushrooms My best friend slept alone in the computer room Everything clicked like some kind of magical mystery tour Days went by and it was so surreal My body told my brain how to feel I was building a fence in the days and when nights rolled around I was there with you The whole night through We never talked very much I suppose it was easier just to touch But I knew you were leaving in the middle of August I watched us Silently wait Until the expiration date And I think that love is what you started to see And I felt ashamed I didn't have it in me The night that you left, you cried as I was inside you I couldn't shed a tear Feeling guilt and fear To make things worse, I fell in love with your best friend While you were out there WWOOFing in Ireland You wanted to pen pall but it didn't really work out that way In the end And I've been treated the same since then And it may not mean much but now I understand How dishonorable people can be when you're all the way in I try not regret anything I do But I regret the way I treated you I know you told me before that you forgive me but I just wanna say That I'm sorry Sincerely, Dylan There's a first time for everything There's a first time for everything There's a first time for everything There's a first time for everything There's a first time for everything There's a first time for everything

For You 03:42
We may have loved in more ways than one We may have burned our eyes from staring at the sun But no matter where you are, no matter what you do There will always be a place in my heart babe For you We may get jaded as times start to change You may get wasted and I may get strange But when you feel like dying I will pave your way through Cause there will always be a place in my heart babe For you When I'm at the ledge, on the top looking down I won't jump, I won't fall as long as you're still around I won't let all those nightmares come true Cause there's a place in my heart babe For you We will see love stop feeling so lovely We will see life stop feeling so lively We'll see the best thing on earth as it breaks right in two But there will always be a place in my heart babe There will always be a place in my heart babe There will always be a place in my heart babe For you (place in my heart) For you (place in my heart) For you (place in my heart) My heart babe For you For you (place in my heart) For you (place in my heart) For you (place in my heart) My heart babe For you

Because I love you Maybe it's harder to keep it straight Thought I kept it pretty good, I was wrong Maybe this road I won't ever get off of Because I love you Maybe it's easy to fall back in Talk to you for hours about nothing This would be fine if it weren't for your man Everything you do to me I do to you Everything you do to me I do to you Because I love you There's some way back through the middle There's some way back through the middle There's some way back through the middle

Human Muses 05:04
Where would we be without human muses? Without human muses, we wouldn't be here at all Where would we be without human muses? Without human muses, we'd be nothing at all It's the window Where I see through you It's much brighter too It's a better view When I see through you It's the camera lens From the other end Doesn't feel like pretend And I know who's the friend When I see through you Where would we be without human muses? Without human muses, we wouldn't be here at all Where would we be without human muses? Without human muses, we'd be nothing at all It's the missing link As I sip the drink It may feel like a lot But I don't need to think When I see through you It's the driving force And I take its course I forget intercourse I forget divorce When I see through you Where would we be without human muses? Without human muses, we wouldn't be here at all Where would we be without human muses? Without human muses, we'd be nothing at all It's a beautiful thing that humans can share Even without knowing You can throw it away but you gave me a gift That will live forever and ever and ever AMEN AMEN AMEN AMEN Where would we be without human muses? Where would we be without human muses? Where would we be without human muses? Where would we be without human muses?
