Alex 02:56
Silly Alex don't think that way I said I can't hold this in So I'm gonna let it out right now I want to hold you close You're acting like you want to hold you down Don't ask me to Change the man I am for you I said don't ask me to Change the man I am for you Don't get sad, decide to stay You're heart is here, your head's away The more you cry, the more I know I'm certain that you'll let me go I said oh my God I've got my heart in my hands Now my head is so heavy that I can't understand Singing oh my golly oh miss me oh my I'm afraid that the moon pulled you out with the tide I said I can't hold this in So i'm gonna let it out right now I want to hold you close You're acting like I want to hold you down Alex don't think that way Unless you're gonna act on it Alex don't think that way Unless you're gonna change the way it is Don't get sad, decide to stay You're heart is here, your head's away The more you cry, the more I know I'm certain that you'll let me go I said oh my God I've got my heart in my hands Now my head is so heavy that I can't understand Singing oh my golly oh miss me oh my I'm afraid that the moon pulled you out with the tide I said oh my God I've got my heart in my hands Now my head is so heavy that I can't understand Singing oh my golly oh miss me oh my I'm afraid that the moon pulled you out with the tide

Eggshells 05:09
Say you want better You poke fun of holes in my sweater babe But who did you really expect me to be I can see through you I try everyway to undo you boy Before California takes you from me Slow down slow down Take it from the beginning I'm here why are you still around I could keep digging Provide all the things that you're missing boy But why should I worry that I'm not enough Say you don't like me Enough to stand up and just fight me boy Then we will both know that it's time to give up If I could just tell you I've fallen in more than I care to now It's strange so afraid I might be in love Slow down slow down Take it from the beginning I'm here why are you still around There's no missing piece No my other half I could lose it all Keep one photograph Oh if you needed me I'd give you all I have Slow down slow down Take it from the beginning I'm here why are you still around Slow down Slow down Take it from the beginning now I'm here why are you still around

Guess I wake up knew everytime I'd lose my mind? Going back and forth gotta keep it inside If I let this go would you be surprised Going back and forth gotta keep it inside Oh way over this I'm running i'll hide Going back and forth gotta keep it inside Said I never gave my all but I tried Are we so far so far gone It felt so right and once again it's so long One more time I swear God dammit I'm gone All this back and forth all this leading me on Yes I put up with you three too many times Going back and forth gotta keep it inside Could I break your heart before you touch mine Going back and forth gotta keep it inside Oh way over this you're wasting my time Going back and forth gotta keep it inside Act like giving me your all is a crime Are we so far so far gone It felt so right and once again it's so long One more time I swear God dammit I'm gone All this back and forth all this leading me on You're thinking I'll sit here watch you walk away Think maybe Ill change your mind or beg you to stay I never put up with anyone treating me this way You're not worth my time can't make up your mind Thinking I'll sit around and wait Are we so far so far gone It felt so right and once again it's so long One more time I swear God dammit I'm gone All this back and forth all this leading me on

Follow Me 03:31
Oh you make me wonder Opened another door Where I ain't been in awhile I know I shouldn't boy But let's have another pour That moon makes me thirsty for wine And I said Would you look at that I think I love your body You read mine like a book Oh the marks that I made Up on your shoulder Sure gave you a good look Let's have another go We'll learn something we didn't know I'll be your distraction for awhile These afternoons move slow Don't have no place to go And the company we keep is so kind And I said Would you look at that I think I love your body You read mine like a book Oh the marks that I made Up on your shoulder Sure gave you a good look Maybe we'll take our time And for the moment you'll be mine I know you play all the right cards And when the day is done I'll try and pack up and be gone We'll see if I make it past the yard And I said Would you look at that I think I love your body You read mine like a book Oh the marks that I made Up on your shoulder Sure gave you a good look And I said Would you look at that I think I love your body You read mine like a book Oh the marks that I made Up on your shoulder Sure gave you a good look Sure gave you a good look Sure gave you a good look

Expectations 04:17
We met and it was simple I had it all and you were the one That would make it all okay You made me feel so different We had each other night after night All my troubles went away But of coarse it's just not the same You try to hold too tightly Everything's gonna change Make the rules and it's just a game I can't stop burning bridges I'll win you over make make you my own And then we'll both feel different You can't possibly give what I want from you I know I said you were perfect I made the rules that you didn't know All of these expectations You can't possibly give what I want from you So now I treat you different I made a list of all that I need And I left it up to you I treat you like a stranger And talk to strangers like they know me It's your fault for all I do As if you don't suffer too I tied up all our shit into something we can't undo These are the rules I should follow too I can't stop burning bridges I'll win you over make make you my own And then we'll both feel different You can't possibly give what I want from you I know I said you were perfect I made the rules that you didn't know All of these expectations You can't possibly give what I want from you Oh it's all my fault Never meant to be so unkind now I don't listen when you talk And what it comes down to is I'm just Afraid to lose something that shouldn't be mine I can't stop burning bridges I'll win you over make make you my own And then we'll both feel different You can't possibly give what I want from you I know I said you were perfect I made the rules that you didn't know All of these expectations You can't possibly give what I want from you You can't possibly give what I want from you You can't possibly give what I want from you

Sinking Ship 04:07
Feel like wasting time Feel like wasting time Feel like wasting time with you See the rising tide Know it's only a matter of time See the rising tide So blue Oh if it's cold in the water Am I better for it oh I can learn from my mother If this sinking ship goes down Take my broken hands Takes a sunrise to understand Both my broken hands are true Always here and now Tried to drift dear But don't know how Always here and now with you Oh if it's cold in the water Am I better for it oh I can learn from my mother If this sinking ship goes down Oh if it's cold in the water Am I better for it oh I can learn from my mother If this sinking ship goes down
8.
My Town 04:38
Oh you broke the spell Always knew this wouldn't end so well I made sure that no one else could tell When I lost my will to run all the time we spent All the things you said, I never felt No I didn't lose the upper hand Still I found myself undone So I'll take my time Try to separate what's yours from mine See your fingerprints on all I find If it was all a game you won Who did you think we were fooling Saying goodbye for the moment Take it back Burn it down Oh you bring your body bag I know you're right Just hurts my pride Because I gave you all I had Oh for once it's not my fault You know I did the best I can Get out of my heart and my head Don't you know this is my town now it's time to go Just sink back into you never know oh you didn't mean to be so bold One last hit before you leave Oh you meant so well Now your head can hold you like a cell Check in my mind just like a damn hotel Drop the key before you leave Who did you think we were fooling Saying goodbye for the moment Take it back Burn it down Oh you bring your body bag I know you're right Just hurts my pride Because I gave you all I had Oh for once it's not my fault You know I did the best I can Get out of my heart and my head Don't you know this is my town
9.
The One 03:07
I'll make the coffee if you cook the bacon I haven't had a lot to eat I like it black no sugar we don't have any bacon But the sentiment was sweet We've been together for as long as I remember But we only make love in the Spring We don't mind staying up all night Because we talk a lot sweeter with booze Never can remember even half of the fights But you'll never forget when I lose You're not the one for me You're not the one for me You're not the one for me You're just the one that I choose Wake up in the morning my head is feeling heavy Bed's empty and the room is cold We probably said some things we both should be regretting We're too young to be acting this old Are you holding me together I know that you are broken You're so good at staying composed I'll find you in the kitchen We'll talk about the weather Oh God you are beautiful We don't mind staying up all night Because we talk a lot sweeter with booze Never can remember even half of the fights But you'll never forget when I lose We don't mind staying up all night Because we talk a lot sweeter with booze Never can remember even half of the fights But you'll never forget when I lose You're not the one for me You're not the one for me You're not the one for me You're just the one that I choose
10.
We combined The first time that we lost our minds We couldn't see how far we'd climbed Without looking down Used to think The worst thing we could do is sink You took me right up to the brink And swore you'd stick around Change the tide There is consequences when you lie The truth will come out in your eyes With all the fear i've found And who could break you Who could break you Who could break you down Who could break you Who could break you Who could break you down Way back when I started wondering where you've been Change the way our story ends And what you meant to me Different tune It's simple when I think of you So thank you for the damn good view Appreciate the key And who could break you Who could break you Who could break you down Who could break you Who could break you Who could break you down If I say that you're freaking me out Saving face I don't want you around You got a hold on me, ooh If I fall cause you're breaking me down Who would have thought it was you all along You got a hold on me And who could break you Who could break you Who could break you down Who could break you Who could break you Who could break you down
11.
Leave it alone If you have to force it It's not worth your time Leave it alone You go on your way darling I'll go mine Leave it alone You want to change me but you don't know how Leave it alone No use pretending we can go back now Overdue So tired when I think of you I guess it's just the cards we drew There is nothing here Leave it alone Nothing to fix Now you can walk away Leave it alone Don't think there is anything that I can say Leave it alone You never wanted this thing anyhow Leave it alone No one would blame you for just walking out Overdue So tired when I think of you I guess it's just the cards we drew There is nothing here Understand We're betting on an empty hand There's no one here to reprimand Just disappear Leave it alone If you have to force it It's not worth your time Leave it alone You go on your way darling I'll go mine Leave it alone Nothing to fix Now you can walk away Leave it alone Don't think there is anything that I can say Leave it alone You never wanted this thing anyhow Leave it alone No use pretending we can go back now Leave it alone If you have to force it It's not worth your time Leave it alone You go on your way darling I'll go mine
12.
You draw With fingers on the wall All of the places you'd rather be I smile promise that I'll spend some time alone Cause I know you're losing sleep Hoping that you're doing well Escape your head, a living hell I'm losing my damn mind but I'm alright Darling when I say it's fine I'll see you at some other time Don't want to say goodbye I'll say goodnight Sometimes this simple kind of love becomes a crutch It's easy living slow There's a fine line I start to think of you too much Let me in i'll let you go We'll try Not to read each other like a book Let's just share another smoke Hoping that you're doing well Escape your head,a living hell I'm losing my damn mind but I'm alright Darling when I say it's fine I'll see you at some other time Don't want to say goodbye I'll say goodnight Tell it like it is I get the feeling that I might have let you in Tell it like it is I get the feeling that I might have let you in We'll try To pass the time Denying all the facts Maybe soon we'll be complete Hoping that you're doing well Escape your head,a living hell I'm losing my damn mind but I'm alright Darling when I say it's fine I'll see you at some other time Don't want to say goodbye I'll say goodnight Darling when I say it's fine I'll see you at some other time Don't want to say goodbye I'll say goodnight
