Track Name: Let's Be Ugly Together (An Atrocious Love)
One is always
A little more than the other
(de)pends on the angle
and time of day
When you were little
They called you a monkey
And I was ridiculed just the same

Found each other in the jungle
you asked if I knew how to play
We were not a beautiful couple
But it felt just right to say

Let's be ugly together
hold my hand you goofy freak
Let's be ugly together
And it won't matter
what anyone else thinks

Every night on the tv
those pretty people sell us things
It must be easier to lie to yourself
With magic lights and editing

Let's be ugly together
hold my hand you goofy freak
Let's be ugly together
an atrocious love
That's you and me

We'll get older and uglier
that's a solid guarantee
love ain't always pretty
but it's just about all you need

so let's be ugly together
hold my hand you goofy freak
let's be ugly together
and it won't matter what anyone else thinks
Track Name: Savin Up
B / Eb / C#m / B

If you ask me how much I make
I might ask you how much it takes
I've got no assets so it's easy to see
You won't be well off if you end up with me

F# / A / B

but if you want love i've been savin up
if you need love i've been savin up
if you want love i've been savin up for you

I've put in some time but it's no use
i know some people yes but they're broke too
we'll just keep goin like we always do
let's go out to eat darlin before the bills go through

if you want love i've been savin up
if you need love i've been savin up
if you want love i've been savin up for you

SOLO

I don't think about money a lot
till I'm reminded how little I've got

love was just an old song
on a wind-up gramaphone
something in a picture from
a long time ago
if she was any more beautiful
she might burst into flames
steal the heart of any boy
who ever heard her name

now we're out here together somehow
singin' time won't tear us down

Is it true love
if i'd ruin myself for you
keep a long list in my pocket
of the things that I would do
to take you out this weekend
for the best sandwich in town
the whole time I'm hopin'
that time won't tear us down
C G
together with our worries and wishes
C G
our funny voices and faces
C Bm7
our colors summers and mornings
C D7 Bm (2 3)
our tears and our chance together

light becomes what it touches
so here we are
Everyone has a story that can break your heart
the odds against us are endless
But don't it feel right now
like time won't tear us down
time won't tear us down
oh time won't tear us down
for now
Track Name: Sweet Little Dreams
I try to keep myself
entertained
Gotta a new toy now
But it's all the same
No matter what I get into
There's nothing
Like sweet little dreams of you

My life's an accretion
Of accidents and snacks
The moments that make sense
never really last
But I keep this dumb belief
That one day it all just clicks
Used to have a remote
But I don't know where it is
Think i'll just go back through
My sweet little dreams of you
sweet little dreams of you

I'll never be self sufficient
I can barely tie my shoes
but hard times can't last forever
And we'll make it through
Long as I've got
as long as I've got
long as I've got my
sweet little dreams of you

I love you baby but you're wild as hell
Go out with you I might and up in jail
I'll keep my distance
and my record too
I can't be seen in public with you

want me to meet you down at that place
you can take yourself any day
Can't meet up tonight I've got the flu
plus I can't be seen in public with you

Track Name: Bright Quarter Moon
D Bm/A
our dreams fight reality
D G/A
we fight over what those words mean
Bm A
so if the whole thing melts
D G
and we all go to hell
Bm A D
can we blame our reasoning
D Bm/A
one day we'll run out of nostalgia
D G/A
they'll give it a new name
Bm A D G
drove past my old house on the internet
Bm A D
but it didn't feel the same
Bm A D G
as running around like an idiot on the loose
Bm A D
Under a bright quarter moon
D Bm/A
like false teeth in a pawnshop window
D G/A
the smell of rain on concrete
Bm A D G
reminders of things that may not make sense
Bm A D
but seem appropriate
Bm A D G
and the concrete turns a greyish blue
Bm A D
Under a bright quarter moon
D A
Pleasant surprise
Bm G
Oh my my my my my
Bm A D
ooooo oooo ooo

D (hold)
Bm/A (quick)
