Track Name: I Like You
You go home to her everyday, every
What do I gotta do to make you stay, make you stay?
Well, if she has something I don't have
Tell me what it is and give me a chance
Who do I gotta be to make you stay?
I can never quite say the right thing
But I'm falling for you and begging you to stay
I don't want to look back and wonder what could have been
I die inside seeing you and her hand in hand
I don't want to be the one to cause tears in your eyes
But I need you to understand
I know you can't leave her right now
But I'll be waiting for you when you can
If she knew what she had she would never let you go
So, oh, well, I'm hoping that she doesn't know
I know I'm not that self-assured
And I may not be the one you're looking for
But I just can't compete with her anymore
I can never quite say the right thing
But I'm falling for you and begging you to stay
I don't want to look back and wonder what could have been
I die inside seeing you and her hand in hand
I don't want to be the one to cause tears in your eyes
But I need you to understand
I know you can't leave her right now
But I'll be waiting for you when you can
I'm hiding behind this melody and these words that hold the truth
Maybe one day I'll get the guts to tell you
I like you
Track Name: I Saw You Standing There (and that's when this whole thing started)
You stand alone
Like a garden rose
But baby I'm only a weed
So I'll just burn some more incense
And forget about the distance
Between who I am and who you need
It hits me hard in the chest
Please spare me the rest
If your lips speak another word
There's not a bone in my body that wouldn't hurt
Please don't make these words your last
But please don't make me think of you like that
Her whole world was a symphony
But there wasn't enough of her to keep listening
So she packed up her mind
And set off to find
Someone who I couldn't be
It hits me hard in the chest
Please spare me the rest
If your lips speak another word
There's not a bone in my body that wouldn't hurt
Please don't make these words your last
But please don't make me think of you like that
It hits me hard in the chest
Please spare me the rest
If your lips speak another word
There's not a bone in my body that wouldn't hurt
Please don't make these words your last
But please don't make me think of you like that
Track Name: Losing the War
You can fall alone
You don't need me anymore
You found your place
And here I stand to take it with grace
I know we've seen better days
I told you
I swore
But we're not like we were before
You know
What to say
But you're pacin' the floor anyway
It's like winning a battle
But losing the war
This time
I know
We've got no where to go
I know I lied
But I've come to swallow my pride
And for you, I tried
Track Name: What We'll Know As The End
If one day you saw my face
Would you recognize?
Or has this broken picture
Faded to the back of your mind?
What I would give
To be only a witness
The thing no one can see
To watch the world pass by
And no one ever notice me
You picked my heart up
And you threw it away
You left me stumblin'
Over what words I should say
You can take back
Your broken promises
And I'll try to forget
Every word you ever said
We'll take what we can
And forgive someday
But, this is what we'll know as the end
Maybe one day
I'll finally say the right thing
But that's only happened in my dreams
Maybe one day we'll see
Nothing's ever as good as it seems

Track Name: Here's Hoping
I hope one day
I can write a song
About all the roads
I've traveled on
And when I look in the mirror
I can see on my face
All the time that's gone on and on and on
Some days are better
And some days are worse
But I hold on to the love
And on my back
I carry the hurt
Here's hoping for some better days
Keep on dancing in the rain
Maybe at the end of the day
We can say we made it out okay
And I feel so much older than I am
And I'm not even wise enough to stand
I haven't even lived these words I wrote
God save me from this body too young for my soul
One day I'll wake up
In the same damn state in the same damn city
I'll be a little older
The same cracks in my smile
and the same damn chip on my shoulder
Everyday I run from my mind
Keep on walking these jagged lines
Running from all these places
These faces
Where I'll never quite fit in right
Here's hoping for some better days
Keep on dancing in the rain
Maybe at the end of the day
We can say we made it out okay
And I feel so much older than I am
And I'm not even wise enough to stand
I haven't even lived these words I wrote
God save me from this body too young for my soul
Track Name: Take A Chance
When you're falling hard for someone
You know you'll never get
It has a way of getting in your head
And not letting you ever forget
Let's be young and dumb
And pretend our broken hearts can love
We could fly away or sail off on the seas
Wherever you wanna go, it's fine by me
But I'm begging, please, take a chance on me
I know there's a lonely road
That leads to a place I don't wanna go
So let's take a chance
And together we can find our way back home
Maybe we could fall in love
Or lean on each other when push came to shove
And if it all got to be a little too much
Well, our love would be enough
I'm begging, take a chance on us
I can feel it in the stillness in the air
I can feel it coming from everywhere
What do I gotta do to prove to you
That I'd walk away from all that I have and run away with you
When we're both gone and done
And we walk off into the sun
With the hope that carried us
Cause' we took a chance on love
We took a chance on love
Track Name: Under Bridges
If I can wait a little longer
Hear the rain, feel the thunder
If our hearts can get a little stronger
Keep us both from going under
I found everything I've been looking for in you
And lay me down under the bridge
Where you stole my heart
And held my hand till' dark
As we stand here let it all just be
Water under the bridge
I don't think that anybody knows
I don't think that anybody cares
But take your hand
Run it through my hair
And baby, let's go somewhere
Track Name: Crystal Flame
You'll fall in time
It'll get you in the night
When your eyes are closed
And there's no where to hide
My patience is wearin' thin
It must be this hell that I'm living in
I know how but I don't know when
So I'll just keep this part of me hidden
We're standing around
In the light of day
Looking for the light of the crystal flame
That never came
Track Name: 700,000 Hours
It's the slowly turning earth
All the miles and the miles
The people we'll hurt
All the sorrow in a smile
It's the seven hundred thousand hours
You spent under the sun
It's the way the wind stings your cheek
And how far your feet can run
You're in it all
There's a piece of you in everything
You're in it all
You're everything in the universe
But now it's time to go
Somewhere over the mountain tops and rainbows
You can find a better place
To rest your head
It's the seven hundred thousand hours
To win some or lose
All the stories embedded in the soles of our shoes
All the days that you spent
With the weight of the world up on your shoulders
The person in the mirror
Just kept getting older
It's the way the grass feels
When it's in between your toes
Take all of your burdens
And just let them go
You're in it all
There's a piece of you in everything
You're in it all
You're everything in the universe
But now it's time to go
Track Name: The Curse
I'm in as much of a hurry
To get out of here
As the rain is to fall to the ground
If I could just pull myself together to feel
Then maybe I'd stop worrying about things that aren't real
Until the night captures the sun
And they day's between being old and young
You might find me in the night
Dead from all my spite
Or from the curse of my own
My own bare hands
And then we'll dance
Around all the compromise
I can feel the water rising
Something has yet
To let me forget the sound
Of the door slamming shut
And filling my head with this doubt
But I don't suffer gracefully like you do
Are you afraid to feel the weight of all you go through?
Until the night captures the sun
And the day's between feeling old and young
You might find me in the night
Dead from all my spite
Or from the curse of my own
My own bare hands
And then we'll dance around all the compromise
I can feel the water rising
As soon as my head hits the pillow
I hope that I won't end up alone
And I can find my own worth
Cause when you think more than you breathe
It's a curse
I can find it so easy
To defeat my own mind
And in the end
Have nothing left to defend
Cause when the night captures the sun
And the day's between feeling old and young
You might find me in the night
Dead from all my spite
Or from the comfort I've acquired
In my own misery
Develop your dependencies
On the things that you can't see
Cause maybe they'll save you
But maybe they wont save you in the end
