- "Swing, Swing," the song that made them famous, is about as shamelessly melodramatic as a 2000s emo song can get, and all the better for anyone going through a difficult breakup.
- "Dirty Little Secret". The song itself is emotional, with a chorus far from the standard love-song drivel: "Tell me all that you've thrown away/Find out games you don't wanna play/You are the only one that needs to know..." But once you see the video and everyone holding post cards up to the camera (with secrets varying from "I have more body hair than any woman should" to "I had gay sex at church camp" to "I only love two of my children"), you'll be bawling. Or at least having soul pains from the fact that the secrets are real, even if the people are actors.
- "It Ends Tonight"Just a little insightwon't make this rightIt's too late to fightIt ends tonight
- "Straightjacket Feeling"Today I'm fine without youRun away this time without youAnd all the things you put me throughI'm holding on by letting go of you
- "Another Heart Calls"Tyson: I'm sorryAllison: So what?Tyson: But you don't think I've said enoughI'm sorryAllison: I don't care!You were never there!
- "Breakin"In a clear view there's a silhouetteAnd I watch you and I can't forgetKnew we were done when I locked that doorYeah I figured it out nowBreaking's what your heart is for
- "Believe" is this and heartwarming.I don't ever wanna believeNo I don't ever wanna believe, yeahthat when we diethat we all leaveI don't ever wanna let goI hope that you see, yeahthat there's a part of you that's left inside of me
- "Heartbeat Slowing Down"I fucking hate this townI wanna burn it downI never felt so coldAnd when I burn this townI hope I burn it downand leave me on my own
- "Drown Next to Me" is mostly heartwarming, but the dark metaphors put it in this section.I walk in the water 'cause I can hardly breatheWe can leave the ones who love usYoure all I ever needWell tell each other liesthat I know well both believeJust sand in the waterDrown next to me
- "There's a Place" is about childhood friends (with the narrator in love with his friend) growing increasingly distant from each other as the narrator sings about the inevitable.In your heart, that's where I'll always beNow close your eyes and I will never leaveIt's funny how I see us hand in handI miss you already, understandThat I know that you aren't readyBut you don't get to pick the dayThat the worst one in your life will land right onI can hear you beg for more
