Track Name: You're So Radical
You're so radical
Like a little lightning bug that's shining
Right in front of me
And I know I'm not quite cool enough for you
Doesn't matter much to me

You're the center of
Every little love triangle
And I'm tangled up
And I'm feeling all screwed up
But I won't give up on you

I'm bad - bad as in good
I'm sad - but I'm not emo
I'm bad - bad as in good
I'm sad - but I'm not emo

You're the reason it's good
You're the reason it's good
And I don't need to,
But I'd like to meet you

You're so rad, but I can't
Dismiss this ghost in my head
My head is beet red
I wish this was you in my bed

I'm bad - bad as in good
I'm sad - but I'm not emo
I'm bad - bad as in good
I'm sad - but I'm not emo

You're the reason it's good
You're the reason it's good
And I don't need to,
But I'd like to meet you

Little lady, you're gonna see
Little lady, you're gonna see
That every night with me is so rad
Little lady, you're gonna see
Little lady, you're gonna see
That every night with me wouldn't be so bad

I'm bad - bad as in good
I'm sad - but I'm not emo
I'm bad - bad as in good
I'm sad - but I'm not emo
I'm bad - bad as in good (You are so radical to me)
I'm sad - but I'm not emo
I'm bad - bad as in good (You are so radical to me)
I'm sad - but I'm not emo
Track Name: Here We Go Again
Here we go, here we go, here we go again
This time it's gonna be different
No way, no way, I'm not gonna fall in love with you
Here we go, here we go, here we go again
This time it's gonna be different
No way, no way, I'm not gonna fall in love with you

Here we are let's celebrate
It's been a long, long seven days
Six months of breaking up never felt so good
No more don't hesitate
I'm not about to just sit and wait
I'm getting out before anything else goes wrong

And as I'm running out the door I'll say

Here we go, here we go, here we go again
This time it's gonna be different
No way, no way, I'm not gonna fall in love with you
Here we go, here we go, here we go again
This time it's gonna be different
No way, no way, I'm not gonna fall in love with you

These brand new scars
You can have 'em back they're yours
Take 'em back 'cause I don't need more
I'm banged and bruised
All because of you
Yeah, you're so hardcore

And as I'm running out the door I'll say

Here we go, here we go, here we go again
This time it's gonna be different
No way, no way, I'm not gonna fall in love with you
Here we go, here we go, here we go again
This time it's gonna be different
No way, no way, I'm not gonna fall in love with you

Those lies, those lies
Broken arrows through my heart
Those tears I cried
From an eyelash; not your words
I threw your things in a box beside my bed
I said no more

Here we go, here we go, here we go again
This time it's gonna be different
No way, no way, I'm not gonna fall in love with you
Here we go, here we go, here we go again
This time it's gonna be different
No way, no way, I'm not gonna fall in love with you
Here we go, here we go, here we go again
This time it's gonna be different
No way, no way, I'm not gonna fall in love with you
Here we go, here we go, here we go again
This time it's gonna be different
No way, no way, I'm not gonna fall in love with you
Here we go, here we go, here we go again..
Track Name: I'm Lloyd Dobler
We can't be friends
Everybody knows
It's way too serious
So one last kiss
Right before I go
Before you say...

I'm able to figure out
Things I don't wanna know
However, I'm never
Too sure I wanna know

At night I try to fight 'em off
Dirty little secrets
That would make my blood run cold

Every night I lie in silence
Every night I'm wide awake
Every night I think I've finally become
Everything I've learned to hate

I am just a little less
Stable than I should confess
My eyes are a little red
Bloodshot and barely open

At night I try to fight 'em off
Dirty little secrets
That would make my blood run cold

Every night I lie in silence
Every night I'm wide awake
Every night I think I've finally become
Everything I've learned to hate

I would hate to know
Everything you know
I would hate to know
Everything you know

And when I finally convince myself
I don't wanna know
I tell myself,
It's you

At night I try to fight 'em off
Dirty little secrets
That would make my blood run cold

Every night I lie in silence
Every night I'm wide awake
Every night I think I've finally become
Everything I've learned to hate

If I should fall to sleep
I'll meet you in my dreams
