Houston Calls fall into just about every pop-punk cliché there is: The start stop riffs, the sarcastic, pseudo-clever lyrics, even the vocals have a certain quality to them that feels totally unoriginal. Overall, A Collection of Short Stories is a fun but completely forgettable affair. My advice: Check out Exit Emergency, Bob and Bonnie, and Elephant and Castle, and don’t bother with the rest.

Album A Collection of Short Stories. The Better Part Of Valor Lyrics. This) life we've forsaken Not out of spite but of honesty Lips sealed, our tongues tied This secret's safer than you or me This isn't how it should end Or should it end at all? Cause every now and again I wait for you to call I'd wait all my life for you Cause if this was meant to be Than it's all I can do I already know it's true If you still have a heart to steal Then I'll steal it from you Stolen devotion A poor excuse to avoid your eyes.
