ALREADY GONE - words & music by Nate Butler So I was headed out to the coast anyway, and she seemed nice enough, so I said, "Sure, we'll leave at eight." ... She showed up two hours late brought along all of her tapes, so she could play D.J. all the way to San Jose. She's got to hear one song again and again, it never seemed so long And I'm already gone So we heard one song for about ... eighty miles. She wasn't my dream girl or anything, but she did promise certain favors. Like, she'd let me read her authentic collection of 'Flash' comic books -- you know, the fast guy on D.C. She wants to die, wants me to care -- and still makes me feel like I'm not there And I'm already gone She says "Bye-bye ... wanna thank you for the ride But if you wanna stay, we can waste another day like today -- you need a getaway! And I'm already gone I'm not an asshole. I just like having a little space to myself, y'know? So if you call me on the phone, leave a message; I'm not around ... I just headed out. And I'm already gone

I CAN KEEP A SECRET – words & music by Nate Butler It was by accident, I interrupted a chat that was intimate. I took it over fast, but that's not me that's talkin', that's the Caffe Mocha in my glass. Everybody heard the same thing, but I can't prove it's true. Nobody knows what to do, and I'm for telling you, But I can keep a secret, too. Back at the new Caffe, I wonder if they sit there dressed in black all day? I promised not to tell, but now I'm not so sure, now that I'm out from out of coffee's spell. Anyone can see what is happening to me -- but nobody knows what to do, 'Cause I'm for telling you, but I can keep a secret, too. So that's the way it went; I didn't mean you to find it out by accident. Now that I'm on your side, gotta admit, don't trust those coffee-drinkers and their foolish pride! I can finally see that secrecy is for you and me; Now I can you the truth: Nobody knows what I do. Everything I say to you is just between we two … I can keep a secret, too I can keep a secret, too Can you keep a secret, too?

SYNC OR SWIM Swim or sync, sync or swim Swing your sync, or sing it again. … Do it again. When I sync or swim, I don't know how or when I know How I'm gonna be, and who's another me to show? Tell a name, and you won't get paid; Sell your soul, and you hope you're saved! Swim or sync, sync or swim Swing your sync, or sing it again. Sync or swim, dead or alive Nail your sync, or you're sinking again tonight. … Do it again. [repeat 1st verse & chorus] … Do it again. … Again?! Swim or sync, sync or swim Swing your sync, or sing it again. Sync or swim, dead or alive Nail your sync, or you're sinking again tonight. We're doin' it live. And you're doin' it right!

BE LAGOM -- words & music by Nate Butler Tack, tack, tack så mycket In a taxi, better watch that meter Four hundred crown? -- I gotta wash that down! So lagom, I'm pleased to meet ya I'm so lucky you're a friendly greeter Now I'm really on my own ... And I can't tip the waiter -- back home she'd think I hate her I just wanna tip every time I sip, but I don't wanna seem unhip Etiquette is such a trip. Did I say that right? Trying my best, should I be uptight Walking alone in the middle of the night? What did he just say? Am I really in his way? Wanna beat me up 'cause you think I'm gay? And I can't tip the waiter -- back home she'd think I hate her I just wanna tip every time I sip, but I don't wanna seem unhip Etiquette is such a trip. We say please, we say thank you We don't need to out-rank you Be lagom, or take your ass home Did I say that right? Trying my best, should I be uptight Walking alone in the middle of the night? What did he just say? Am I really in his way? Wanna beat me up 'cause you think I'm gay? And I can't tip the waiter -- back home she'd think I hate her I just wanna tip every time I sip, but I don't wanna seem unhip Etiquette is such a trip, oooh yeah I just wanna get it; sorry that I said it Etiquette is such a trip. Be lagom! -- You're in Stockholm Be lagom! -- Or you can take your ass home Be lagom! -- So you can be alone ... this wouldn't be a bad place to call home.

LET IT GO ~ Words & music by Nate Butler All things bright and beautiful must die – let it go Every day (every day) that you stay, re-living yesterday You don't know (you've got no) where to go, where to get away I didn't build my life to throw it all away But anyone who's holding on to yesterday ought to let it go Disengage (at my age?) Turn it off, it's a cage of love Fly away (you are free) Don't be talkin' about real love I didn't build my life to throw it all away But anyone who's holding on to yesterday ought to – Fool me once, shame on you Fool me twice, the shame's on me – shame me! All things bright and beautiful must die, if you just give it time ... I know that all things bright and beautiful must die, if you just give it time, and let it go I didn't build my life to throw it all away But anyone who's holding on to yesterday ought to … fool me once

JOSEFIN (Be My Sister) If you could see me now, I would tell you how It's gonna be better Wish I could write you a letter ... But this will have to do for now. And I could be the man I am supposed to be I wanna be set free; wanna send you a selfie But this will have to do for now. Josefin, I will try my best But I have to beat all the rest, and I hate it Gotta pass this test somehow, the rest will have to wait for now But I'll tell you when this is not the end Win or lose, I know what I must choose -- my new-found friend, And my sister -- I know I'm taking a risk here I will try not to let you down I'm more than just a silly clown from a tiny and backwards town ... But I will have to do for now. And if I fail, I hope you will forgive me I wanna know you somehow But this will have to do for now This will have to do for now This will have to do for now ... but you'll always be my sister.

MAKE YOURSELF - Words & Music by Nate Butler Hey, don't turn your head They won't be mislead If you play the same interview, they will see there's nothing you can do Make yourself, into a better someone else Make yourself, any way you want to, and you Do anything for that brass ring I never think of you the way you make yourself out to be But I'm not the one you've got to please Make yourself, into a better someone else Make yourself, any way you want to, and you do They will say that I don't care After I leave you there, to play this game you do so well I've done all that I can do myself Make yourself, into a better someone else Make yourself, any way you want to, and you do Swedish lyrics: SKAPA DIG SJÄLV Hej, vänd inte bort ditt huvud Dom kommer inte att bli vilseledda Om du spelar upp samma intervju , då får dom se att det finns inget du kan göra åt det Skapa dig själv, bli en bättre människa Skapa ditt eget jag, precis som du vill vara Gör vad som krävs för mässingsringen Jag tänker aldrig på dig på det sättet du utger dig för att vara Men det är inte mig du skall behaga Skapa dig själv, bli en bättre människa Skapa ditt eget jag,precis som du vill vara Dom kommer säga att jag inte bryr mig När jag lämnat dig där, så att du kan spela det här spelet som du gör så bra Jag har gjort allt kunde Skapa dig själv, bli en bättre människa Skapa ditt eget jag, precis som du vill vara Gör det ...

WOULDN'T BET THE WORLD - words & music by Nate Butler Wouldn't change for just anyone But she wants my drinking days to be done Guess my kind of having fun means I'll never get the girl. There's gonna be kegs, and colored lights Could get pretty smashed, could get in some fights And I'm gonna go, and I'm gonna stay all night And I'm gonna be alright I won't need a brew to get through 'Cause I'm being true to you. Wouldn't change for just anyone But this is the first girl not to pack up and run Guess I'm gonna be someone And see the new me unfurled. I will not defect, I know I can earn that woman's respect, I know I can learn I'll bet you a beer I'm making a turn Show all the girls, 'round the world I'll bet you a beer or two, but I wouldn't bet the world I wouldn't bet the world I wouldn't bet the world.

The days last just as long as I say (they don't complain, do they?) Air a sound to come around Air a sound, to come around Living room where the colors swoon And the darkest shapes don't get up too soon And a thousand wars, and as many decors This is my new home, and I'm calling on my phone At my house, at my house At my house, at my house I could not see you walk in my place (if you stood right in my face) Anyone come into town, I need a guest, they never come around Come see me, refurbish me Where the light's so bright that no one can see And a thousand wars, and as many decors This is my new home, and I'm calling on my phone At my house, at my house At my house, at my house Home Home Home Home
