Lyrics to 'Hurricane J':

Jessie, I'm not jokin' around

I see the crowd you're hangin with

and those kids don't seem positive

Don't all those cigs make you tired?

You know I never ask you to change, I only ask you to try

I know you're gonna do what I know you're gonna do

but 22 and bangin' around in restaurants ain't that much prettier

than bangin' around in bars

and why do you keep going to his car?

I don't want this to stop

I want you to know

I don't want you to settle

I want you to go

Forget all the boys that you met at the harbor

You're too hard already, you'll only get harder

Jessie, let's go for a ride

I know a place that we could stop and kiss for a while

I know a place that makes you smile

I know you're gonna say what I know you're gonna say

I know you'll look at the ground, I know you'll probably cry

You're a beautiful girl and you're a pretty good waitress

but Jessie, I don't think I'm the guy

I don't want this to stop

I want you to know

I don't want you to settle

I want you to go

Forget everything that I showed you this summer

You're too hard already, you'll only get harder

but they didn't name her for a saint

they named her for a storm

so how is she supposed to think about

how it's gonna move in the morning

she said it's balanced hypothetical

and if the cigs keep you warm

then how is she supposed to think about

how it's gonna move in the morning

'bout how it's gonna move in the morning

Hurricane Jess, she's gonna crash into the harbor this summer

She don't wanna wait till she gets older

Hurricane Jess, she's gonna crash into the harbor this summer

She don't wanna wait, she said it only gets harder

And the second leaked single along with lyrics:

"Rock n Roll Problems":

http://nymag.com/daily/entertainment/2010/03/hold_steady.html

the girls want to go to the party

but no ones in any shape to drive

so we called up the guy and when he comes we're gonna ask for a ride

we get to the place and she don't wanna dance

she says she's not really into this track

she wants to know whats going on in the room thats all the way in the back

back home we were listening to catholic boy

and i got hung up on the people that died

i didn't even want to go out cuz i was way too fried

she said i just cant sympathize with your rock and roll problems

isn't this what we wanted?

some major rock and roll problems

that one girl got me cornered in the kitchen

i said i'd do anything but clean

she wants to know what i like being better: trash bin or ash machine

some writers by the fridge said they didn't make the gig

wants to know if i was drunk

he said the kids that he knows from the net

said the sound kinda sucked

and i don't wanna stay in cuz the walls are so gray

you can almost feel the tentacles tighten

i didn't even want to go out cuz i was way too frightened

she said i just can't sympathize with your rock and roll problems

isnt this what we wanted?

some major rock and roll problems

didn't want to go out but i felt really light

when someone put on heaven tonight

had a moment in the middle of In color and black and white

sing along to the southern girls, rip me out of my little world

these are rock and roll problemsx4

this is just what we wantedx4
