Track Name: Mail Myself to You
It's getting cold
It's getting dark too soon
The frozen clouds have gathered 'round the moon
I'm feeling kind of lonely
I think I'll try something new
For Christmas I will mail myself to you

I'll find a box that's big enough to fit
And put a little food inside of it
And buy a lot of postage stamps and give each one a lick
Write fragile on the top and hop in quick

And I'll be on my way to your house
And I really hope you're there
So you can sign for me and open me
And show me that you care
And hopefully I won't forget
To poke some holes for air

I'll pop out wrapped in paper and a bow
And we'll go for a walk out in the snow
And sit down by the fire and talk about what we should do
When I go home might need a box for two

For Christmas I will mail myself to you

Track Name: Takin' Off
Tonight the words stuck in my throat
I'm taking off my coat
I never thought I'd feel like that
I'm taking off my hat
Tonight I got some bad bad news
I'm taking off my shoes
Get ready for some long long talks
I'm taking off my socks

This isn't the first time
That I've taken the worst rhyme
And put it in a song
This won't be the last time
'Cause it's become a pastime
And people sing along

And looking back it really hurt
I'm taking off my shirt
I didn't even have a chance
I'm taking off my pants
I'm never going to go back there
I'm taking off my underwear

Tonight I feel like taking off
So I'm taking off
