Track Name: Genevieve
Genevieve, in case you're wondering
What the hell went wrong with me
It was when you mentioned Trenton
We were lost in Tennessee
Track Name: New Year's Eve
I'm wearing black on New Year's Eve
Cause that's the night you're gonna leave
You've gone to fall in love again
With your familiar little friend

I'll be a continent away
Three hours more for me to pray
He gets so stoned that he don't know
You're waiting by the mistletoe

He's wearing red on New Year's Eve
So confident that you won't leave
Despite that episode last fall
That boy you weren't supposed to call

If he was even half the man
Perhaps then I might understand
Why he's deserving of your heart
He's been neglecting from the start

Some raise a glass, I'll raise a fist
To all the right decisions missed
Never really thought I stood a chance
But how you smiled that time we danced

One thousand resolutions past
Each one less likely than the last
You're wearing blue on New Year's Day
It doesn't have to be this way
Track Name: Never Be Worried
I can't sleep at night without the cricket scores on the BBC
Voices droning numbers that mean nothing at all to me
Your breathing is soft but it doesn't relax me 'cause I need it so
We're all in God's plan, the alarm clock included, so let it go

I walked fifteen blocks on top of the subway to avoid the fare
Then spent thirty bucks on beer and admission and covered my ears
I walked you home around the garbage trucks and didn't speak my mind
Your hair turned black in the orange light; I took it as a sign

I'll never be worried again, I'll never be worried again
If I can meet you for lunch and see you at dinner again
If the mice stay in the wall and you return my calls
And the ice caps melt slowly, I'll never be worried again

Some day I'll trip over my name in lights while I'm on a bus downtown
But the look on your face when you're back from the doctor means it's time to settle down
You won't need a sweater in the heart of December and the birds have flown away
But it's all in God's plan, and who's gonna stop Him from calling it a day

I'll never be worried again, I'll never be worried again
If I can meet you for lunch and see you at dinner again
If the mice stay in the wall and you return my calls
And the ice caps melt slowly, I'll never be worried again
