Track Name: What A Pair!
VERSE 1:
I'm always happy on the outside
And mostly happy on the inside
I think together we'll be just right
I think, I think together we'll be so right

PRE CHORUS 1:
Every time we get close it's not quite there, but just almost
And I wish we were together like we're not so
Maybe we'll get together in a month or two

VERSE 2:
You're always quiet on the outside
I'm always screaming on the inside, outside
I never know if you are alright
I wish, I wish when it was our time

PRE CHORUS 2:
Every time we get close it's not quite there, but just almost
And I wish we weren't just comfortable like old clothes
Maybe we'll be together in a month or so

CHORUS:
You don't say anything and I say too much
What a pair we make, what a pair we'd make
You could go anywhere and I'd go with you
I think I almost need you, I think I want to need to

BRIDGE:
Who'd have thought we'd stuck together
Through the good times and the slightly less good times
Not "together" or whatever
Here's to the good times, the good times
Track Name: The World According To Penny
VERSE 1:
I've got so many questions
You could say that I was
Born yesterday
I've got so many secrets
Hidden in my hard drives
Or my mind

CHORUS 1:
Now comes the hard part
Explaining the who and what I am

VERSE 2:
Tell me all about your teammates
What is it we're doing?
What happened here?
Quickly, put you in the dumpster
Hide you from the watchers
I'll explain it later

CHORUS 2:
Now comes the hard part
Explaining the who and what to you
Now comes the worst part
When I might lose my new friend

BRIDGE 1:
You're taking this really well
And I can't tell, if it has sunk in
I'm not who you thought I was
So let's press pause, or start this over
And then in this interview
Come clean to you, I'm not a real girl
Even though I've got no strings
Or anything, or everything

BRIDGE 2:
Got no strings!
No strings on me!

BRIDGE 3:
I believe that we'll figure it out, figure this out
Got to believe that we'll figure it out, figure it out
Track Name: One Of The Two
VERSE 1:
They have such an advantage
Since I'm not naturally gifted
I'll fake it, and hopefully make it
Or die...one of the two I guess

PRE CHORUS 1:
What did I think when I planned this elaborate hoax?
Tied me in knots now it feels like I'm made up of ropes
Still can't believe that they let me inside of this school
I can't keep up with the pace they set, what do I do?

VERSE 2:
So now, I'm treading water
These friends are so far above me
Do I fit? Or do I cave into this mess?
One of the two I guess

PRE CHORUS 2:
I never dreamed that my destiny'd lead me to you
Something familiar, but if I just told you the truth
Friends are like shadows, they could disappear with the moon
Rising above me, so much that I've built up to lose

CHORUS 2:
I don't belong here, and I don't deserve this
And not in a good way, like I'm way above this
I don't belong here, but I'm seeking purpose
I'm finding my balance, and she's taking notice

VERSE 3:
She is, quietly brilliant
She wants to help me regardless
Do I need, to be a hero or leave?
What is it I believe?

PRE CHORUS 3:
I've always felt like my honestly set me apart
Now I'm a liar and it's weighing down hard on my heart
She knows the truth and she's keeping it close to her chest
Thankful for her, now I see that I'm very much blessed

CHORUS 2:
I don't belong here, and I don't deserve this
And not in a good way, like I'm way above this
I don't belong here, but I'm seeking purpose
I'm finding my balance, and I hope they don't notice

BRIDGE:
I don't, I don't belong here
And I don't, I don't deserve this

I don't know who and what I'm s'posed to be
Track Name: Pancakes, Lucid Dreams & Super Human Strength
VERSE 1:
I love you and pancakes
And not necessarily in that order
If you mess with me
I will break your legs
Who knew we'd be so close
And yet somehow there's no way you don't see it
If you mess with my friends
I will shatter your legs

CHORUS:
I seem so strong when I'm around you
Through everything I still adore you
I look at you and have the best view
I'm always here and waiting for you

VERSE 2:
Sometimes when I know you're not looking
I sit and day dream like I would when I'm sleeping
A recurring dream
Tell me what it means
Who knew we'd be teammates
And so much more if we need it
You can't break my heart
Well you could, but don't I'm begging you

BRIDGE:
We are meant to be and yet I can't find the words
When you're close to me I feel like I'm off with the birds
You invade my dreams and we're fighting to survive
What is what will be when we live out both our lives
Track Name: Imagined A Family
Put your best foot forward
Not that forward
Breathe, concentrate, remember your training
Breathe, concentrate.
Concentrate
Concentrate

VERSE 1:
Outside, everything looks like it's alright
Inside, you are just scared and it's just like
Nobody knows you, you're always the loner, hold them at arms length
This was the part where they might get to know ya, but you can't be sure yet

CHORUS:
Am I all alone? (Or is this) is this really my home?
I feels like a family, not that I know the feeling
But it's what I imagined it feels like

Put your feelings away
Put them away
What are you hiding? That scar's a reminder
What are you hiding, or hiding from Father?

VERSE 2:
Don't lie to them they're trying to help you
Just try anything that they might teach you
Faith and humility, something you're not so familiar with
Trust is symphony, beautiful and it is such a gift

BRIDGE:
Prim and proper
Try and stop her
Being the best damn team mate ever
Track Name: Rough Start
VERSE 1:
I've got a lot of growing up to do
But I don't think that I'll catch up to you
You're sitting pretty on what you assume
So far above us so tell me how's the view?
Oh

CHORUS:
So we're off to a rough start
But your friendship is my target so I'm aiming at your heart
Yeah we're off to a rough start
But a team can't be a team if we all pull ourselves apart

VERSE 2:
I didn't ask to be paired up with you
When Fate's not biased she's just straight up rude
I've got a lot of growing up to do
It's just as well I know that you do too oh

BRIDGE:
All I ever wanted was to be your friend
And you've done so far is push me down again
All I ever wanted was for me to just fit in
But if I am honest I never seem to win

COUNTER BRIDGE:
They see me as small and helpless
They see me as just a child
Just wait and I'll prove you so wrong
Not too late to be reconciled

CHORUS 2:
So we're off to a rough start
But your friendship is my target so I'm aiming at your heart
Yeah we're off to a rough start
And we'll never be effective if we pull ourselves apart
So we're off to a rough start
But your friendship is my target so I'm aiming at your heart
Yeah we're off to a rough start
And we'll never get along unless we all let down our guard
