Track Name: Like You Always Do
My heart is Yours
So bend it
Or break it
And put it together again
You know how it’s supposed to look anyway
And I've probably conformed it to me

Love me like You always do
I’ll be filled with apathy until You’re through
Track Name: Hello Lovely
Tell me something good
Tell me something true
Tell me something I don’t know about you

Tell me what you’re thinking
If you tell a little lie
Just tell me everything will be all right

You tell me that you’re nervous
I don’t act surprised
I tell you that you’re beautiful and you’re so undisguised

Tell me everything
That you’ve ever done wrong
I’ll tell you how your honesty always makes me strong

And you laugh when we kiss
And I get embarrassed
Nothing beats just holding you
Nothing beats it

You tell me how you feel
And it tickles my ear
Everything you tell me is what I wanted to hear

You tell me I’m your favorite
And I can’t help but smile
I throw my arm around you and just hold you for awhile

And you laugh when we kiss
And I get embarrassed
Nothing beats just holding you
Nothing beats it
And I know that you’re mine
Cause I say it all the time
Nothing beats just holding you
Nothing beats it

I say Hello lovely.
Were you thinking of me?
Because I'm always thinking about you.
You make me feel invincible
Thought I know it’s not sensible
When I say goodnight beautiful please know it’s true
Track Name: No Big Deal
They make their sacred vows they don’t intend to keep
They just hate to be alone when they go to sleep

They know it may not last for very long
But they just need a reason to feel that what they are doing isn’t wrong

They don’t know any better
They weren’t raised like you and I
They know that their love won’t last forever
When they say, “I do” what they really mean is “I’ll try”

Their first kid’s on the way
And they say they’re not in love like they used to be
They know that there is something more to this life
But they cannot believe in something that they cannot see

So they’ll wait it out
And see what happens next
They’ll wait 'til he is older
To disband and try again with someone else

They don’t know any better
They weren’t raised like you and I
They know that their love won’t last forever
When they say “I do” what they really mean is “I’ll try”

But when all is said and done
Maybe they will find
A love they never knew existed
And they will learn how to forgive
Track Name: Chasing Me 'Round
If I told you I wasn’t leaving because of you
Would you feel better?
Would you feel better?
And then you ask me, when I tell you that we are through
Will you reconsider?
No, I won’t reconsider.

Cause I know it's not love
When you’re treating me this way
So what makes you think I would want to stay?

At first you were exactly
What I wanted you to be
But then I realized
That you were only chasing me
Around and around and around in circles

I think it’s time for me to make my own mistakes
I don’t need you
No, no, I don’t need you
It seems like every time you touch a heart it breaks
It comes unglued
Like everything you do

Cause I know it's not love
When you’re treating me this way
So what were you expecting me to say?

At first you were exactly
What I wanted you to be
But then I realized
That you were only chasing me
Around and around and around in circles
Track Name: Perfect From the Outside
I saw her from across the room
She looked so perfect from the outside
She was wearing Icthus earrings
So her being good was just implied

Why won’t You let her let You in
You’ve got control of this situation
I know there are some things I’ll never understand
But I’ll trust You just the same
By any of Your names

Her short hair had me in a frenzy
She always wore a t-shirt and jeans
Why can’t she be just like I imagined
Her lack of faith shattered my dreams

Why won’t You let her let You in
You’ve got control of this situation
I know there are some things I’ll never understand
But I’ll trust You just the same
By any of Your names

I saw her from across the room
She looked so perfect from the outside
Track Name: Undesirable
Why don’t thoughts of God
Fill my head
Like thoughts of you
Do

You never give
Your kiss away
So why do you
Give them to me

I feel so undeserving
Undesirable

You walk into
Your favorite room
And want to tell
Them what to do

I can’t believe it’s only been a couple days

I’m all alone
You’re going home
To crawl into
A bed of your own

And I don’t mind if I have thoughts to keep me company
I will sleep with a head-on-my-shoulder memory

Why don’t thoughts of God
Fill my head
Like thoughts of you
Do
Track Name: Bigger Than the Both of Us
Sex is everything
Worshiping the TV
Listen to society
But something’s just not right

Money buys you happiness
Darling, you deserve the best
Tag along with all the rest
Why does this feel so wrong?

You’re dying to have everything
That only turns to dust
I’m living for something bigger
Than the both of us

But you don't understand
Cause it's not in your plan
You're happy being miserable
With money in your hand

You drive around a hundred
Thousand dollars worth of debt
You get upset and throw a fit
You missed your favorite show

Maybe a new pair or shoes
A bit more booze will make you feel whole
Does someone have to die for you to realize
You’re not in control

You’re dying to have everything
That only turns to dust
I’m living for something bigger
Than the both of us

But you don't understand
Cause it's not in your plan
You're happy being miserable
With money in your hand

Your doctors try and try
They work all through the night
But they can’t get it right
A camel can’t fit through a needle’s eye
Track Name: Longing for Another State
Texas just depresses me
I wish you were still here
I wonder if I can make it out here on my own
For another year

It seems like the nicest people are always
The ones who let you down
Leaves me longing for another state
I’m moving to a different town

I’m got some friends to comfort me
I’ve found someone to love
I guess I really have no complaints
At least none that I speak of

It seems like the nicest people are always
The ones who let you down
Leaves me longing for another state
I’m moving to a different town

But I’m not filled with bitterness
I don’t live with regrets
It just seems as if something's wrong when
The only things you miss are sunsets

It seems like the nicest people are always
The ones who let you down
Leaves me longing for another state
I’m moving to a different town

Does it mean that God has forsaken a place
When the only beauty is man-made
It’s not that I don’t want to see your face
It just gets me thinking:

It seems like the nicest people are always
The ones who let you down
Leaves me longing for another state
I’m moving to a different town
Track Name: Lost and Alone
I hate that I feel alone tonight
I hate when I cannot see the light
I hate to think that You’re not on my side
I hate that I’m wrong and You’re always right

I hate that I feel up against a wall
I hate it that I feel so very small
I hate that they watch me just to see me fall
I hate to see them walking when You have me crawl

But I’ve lost my soul
I’ve lost my soul
So won’t You take this boy’s heartache
And make me whole
Cause I have given You my soul

This feels like blasphemy
Or simply meaningless poetry
Cause what I deserve is so much worse than
What You’ve done for me
But I could surely use some company

Cause I’ve lost my soul
I’ve lost my soul
So won’t You take this boy’s heartache
And make me whole
Cause I have given You my
I have given You my
I have given You my soul

And what I deserve is so much worse than
What You’ve done for me
But I could surely use Your company
Track Name: Her Dreams
You are my favorite star
I wonder, in your dreams, just where you are
In your sleep I watch you smile
So I’ll let you rest a while

I watch you slip away
To that very secret day
I hope you dream of times to come
And pray I might be part of some

When you’re with me
It makes me so happy
Because you are the perfect kind
When you’re around
I don’t know my up from down
I’m just hoping you’ll be mine

In her dreams she is laughing
And in her dreams she calls my name
In her dreams I feel that she is slowly fading away
But in my dreams she stays the same

When you’re with me
I cannot stop laughing
Because you are the perfect kind
When you’re around
I don’t know my up from down
I’m just hoping you’ll be mine

I walk by your favorite restaurant
And wonder if you are inside
If I were to call out your name in a crowd
Would you recognize me?

Am I real or only in her dreams?
Could she be a part of mine?
I know this blissfulness won’t last forever
But that’s ok, we’ll be just fine
We'll be just fine
Track Name: Calling It Quits
So shut your mouth and let me think for a minute
I can’t believe that we’re done. Calling it quits
I can’t believe that you’re sitting there staring, crying
What’s going on?

Maybe if we read a little more; gained a little knowledge
We wouldn’t be in this mess. Calling it quits
I believe that we’re making the right decision
You seem so unsure

Sometimes we play these games in our minds
Sometimes we fall and the joke is on us

If our lives were a movie, it just started raining
Mascara ran down your cheek
Your face all black and blue and I don’t know what to do
Wish I could take it all back

Sometimes we play these games in our minds
Sometimes we fall and the joke is on us

This relationship is no different
Surprise it’s over
