Track Name: Hometown
Sometimes I forget
Because we've gone so far
Our separate ways
In our separate lovers' cars
Y'all out west
And we farther east
I thought our contact had desisted
And ceased

Well, I'm coming home
For the holidays
To see my folks and my old friends
From my younger days
It just occurred to me
Maybe you are too
I kinda banked on never
Seeing you

I almost forgot that
I almost forgot

You and I are from the same hometown
I don't wanna see you walkin' around

Will I see you at the grocery store?
The one between my house and yours

I ain't got nothin', no no
I ain't got nothin', no no
I ain't got nothin' to say to you

But you know, I would really like it
If I ran into your mother
I never meant to break up with her
Or your sister or brother
I wanna ask her
If she's doing alright
How's your father's health
And is he sleeping through the night?

I know she'd be pleasant
And most cordial, I'm sure
But I wonder what she thinks of me
Or if she's a bit unsure
I hope she understands me
And what I have endured
But she's always in her family's corner
That's what I love about her

I almost forgot that
I almost forgot

You and I are from the same hometown
I don't wanna see you walkin' around

Will I see you at the grocery store?
The one between my house and yours

I ain't got nothin', no no
I ain't got nothin', no no
I ain't got nothin' to say to you
Track Name: Stacey (Come To Boston)
I've got a bad habit
I never learned how to quit
That I fall so hard in love with friends
That I try so hard to keep 'em

That I pull them in close
Kiss them on the lips
Intertwine mine with their fingertips
'til I don't have a friend
Anymore

But Stacey,
We did the reverse
I can't remember
Who kissed who first
But it doesn't matter now
We found our way back around
But it doesn't matter now
We found our way back around

Stacey!
Come to Boston
Stacey
Come to Boston

I was just sorting this out
What our friendship's all about
I timed it inconveniently
'Cause I'm leaving now

And hey, no pressure
I know you're a friend forever
I know if I don't see you for years
We could fall right back and
Be like we never

Ever were away
But I know you're struggling some days
Know you're dying to make your big escape

But Stacey,
We did the reverse
I can't remember who kissed who first
But it doesn't matter now
It doesn't matter now

Stacey!
Come to Boston
Stacey
Come to Boston
Track Name: The Middle
We don't use the same language
We don't share the same muse
We don't fight the same demons
We don't sing the same blues

You could go out walking
Come back with a clear head
And I would come back miserable
From all the things unsaid

Why won't we meet in the middle?
Why won't we meet in the middle?

We don't work together
Not even in the kitchen
I'm not wrong, nor you, and thus
It's a competition

And I don't know why it bugs me
But I can't just walk it off
Sit down right here, honey, now
We're gonna talk

Why won't we meet in the middle?
Why won't we meet in the middle?
Track Name: Toughen Up
"You don't ask, you don't get"
That was my momma's bit
I always rolled my eyes
Whenever I heard it
Because I never disrupted nothing
Never raised no trouble, no no no,
Didn't wanna 'cause nobody distress
Now there's nobody else that I gotta impress
But me, now I see
It's not about creating friction
It's just having the conviction to believe
So boldly
That in this bullying world
You're still worth something

And now I have toughened up
Now I have toughened up
Now I've toughened up
And now I have toughened up
Up up up up up

My dear friend,
I don't wanna see you fade away when
You've got two good legs
That climb your ass up a hill each day
You must've climbed a mountain by now
But you still can't figure out
You can be strong
That you can carry on
So please,
For your own good,
Be kind to yourself
Like you know you should
If you don't pay yourself
Any respect, I don't know
How anyone else could

Now you gotta toughen up
Now you gotta toughen up
You gotta toughen up
Now you gotta toughen up
Up up up up up

So please,
For your own good,
Be kind to yourself
Like you know you should
If you don't pay yourself
Any respect, I don't know
How anyone else could

You gotta be kind to yourself
You gotta be kind to yourself
You gotta be kind to yourself
You gotta, you gotta, you gotta
You gotta gotta
Toughen up
