Too Close 04:48
I don't really know what to say, what to think But it occured to me we're a ship that's sinking we're sinking... I don't really know what to think, what to feel But once upon a time this love was real so real I got too close again I guess I got too close to you You tore apart this love affair Well, how dare you Oh.... You gave your heart and I gave mine but you took it all away Well how dare you Oh yeah you took it too far Oh yeah and what does that prove Oh yeah you took it too far Oh yeah and baby who do you think you are I'm not really sure what's left to say But I'm pretty sure you think of me of me As you fall asleep and you start to cry remember what you did and ask yourself why why I got too close again I guess I got too close to you You tore apart this love affair Well how dare you Oh You gave your heart and I gave mine But you took it all away Well how dare you Oh yeah you took it too far Oh yeah and what does that prove Oh yeah you took it too far Oh yeah and baby who do you think you are You tore apart this love affair Well how dare you You gave your heart and I gave mine But you took it all away Well how dare you Woa... You tore apart this love affair Well how dare you oh You gave your heart and I gave mine But you took it all away Well how dare you Oh yeah you took it too far Oh yeah and what does that prove Oh yeah you took it too far Oh yeah and baby who do you think you are

Dear best friend Where have you been The past few months of my life And I've missed you But that's not the point I'm trying to get across to you to get across So turn back time and re-enter my life again Dear best friend All these loose ends are becoming tangled And what's the point of even trying to talk to you to talk So turn back time and re-enter my life With all of the effort one sided And quite frankly I'm getting so tired I'm so tired Of telling you and everything going in one ear and out the other I'm so tired of you (break) So turn back time and re-enter my life With all of the effort one sided Quite frankly I'm getting so tired I'm so tired Of telling you and everything going in one ear and out the other I'm so tired With all the effort one sided Quite frankly I'm getting so tired I'm so tired Of telling you and everything going in one ear and out the other I'm so tired of you you you I'm so tired of you Woa I'm so tired of you best friend where have you been it's been awhile It's been awhile

Stay 03:58
I wish you loved yourself half as much as I do Nothing more to say when your help isn't wanted but I could give you a hundred reasons why I think you should stay Aiin't a soul alive that could beat you in kindness you got a beautiful soul a bigger heart than Jesus but I could give you a thousand reasons why I think you should stay Please don't leave me alone this world would be lonely and cold, yeah and home wouldn't feel like home if you were gone Take you out of my life and all I have is darkness all the pain I feel is an endless sadness But I could give you a million reasons why I think you should stay (break) Please don't leave me alone this world would be lonely and cold, yeah and home wouldn't feel like home if you were gone Take you out of my life and all I have is darkness you've got a beautiful soul a bigger heart than Jesus And I could give you a million reasons why I think you should stay

Nine Years 05:01
Wish we grew up in the same town at the playground the best of friends Sharing secrets chasing rainbows what could have been Before you were broken before we fell in love Before the storm came before we even knew what love was Wish I met you at a seesaw in '89 would of told you I love your blue eyes and golden smile Before you were broken before we fell in love before the storm came before we even knew what love was We could have been happy Inside of a love without chains With nothing left to fear and nothing left to hide away We could have been together all that time And I wish for that every day We were always just nine years away Wish I met you before you grew so insecure Would have told you that to this life there is so much more Before you were broken before we fell in love before the storm came Before we even knew what love was We could have been happy Inside of a love without chains with nothing left to fear and nothing left to hide away We could have been together all that time And I wish for that every day We could have been happy inside of a love without chains with nothing left to fear and nothing left to hide away We could have been together all that time And I wish for that every day And I wish for that every day We were always just nine years away

YOU COULD BE THE ONE Give 'em all you've got before it's too late and tell them from the start and don't you hesitate Cause life is a clock that's ticking out of time and you could be the one the one for me you could be the one the one for me And love can steal your heart and leave you blind and things will fall in place if you give them time 'cause love is a war you fight through side by side and you could be the one the one for me and you could be the one the one for me (break) And you could be the one the one for me And you could be the one the one for me And you could be the one the one for me And you could be the one the one for me You could be the one (you could be the one, you could be the one) the one for me And you could be the one (you could be the one, you could be the one) the one for me

Hurricane 03:25
HURRICANE I don't ever want to lose the right to call you friend 'Cause it's been so damn long and don't it feel just like we're starting over again Standing here in darkness and all I could think is I don't want to miss a single thing 'Cause even though outside it's raining harder it ain't raining in my heart and though we both might go down tonight this hurricane that we call love I won't let go of us Seems we're so far from where we started how do we get back to that place All I want to see every moment is your perfect glow in your face 'Cause standing here in darkness and all I could think is I don't want to miss a single thing 'Cause even though outside it's raining harder it ain't raining in my heart And though we both might go down tonight this hurricane that we call love whoa All I really want to do is talk to you through the night all I really want to say is you don't ever have to hide, yeah 'Cause even though outside it's raining harder it ain't raining in my heart though we both might go down tonight this hurricane that we call love oh yeah 'Cause even though outside it's raining harder it ain't raining in my heart though we both might go down tonight this hurricane that we call love, oh this hurricane that we call love Don't it feel like we're starting over again

Come Monday 03:11
You turned and said to me oh, in a loving way “You should be happy” and I said, “Well, I'm not okay” And your heart sank a hundred miles below the underground and there you stood so close to me as you stared into the clouds and you know the reason why I'm so damn broken down Cause come Monday you won't be around You tried to comfort me saying time will fly by “Three weeks are nothing when you just close your eyes” But my heart sank a hundred miles below the deep blue sea, yeah hoping you would dive on in and somehow rescue me, yeah And you know the reason why I wear such a broken crown Cause come Monday You won't be around And our hearts soared a hundred miles high into the sky and I said I love you til the day I die And you know the reason why I never want to let you down 'Cause come Monday you won't be around

Tumbleweed 03:19
Remember me When you're out there Letting life pass you by like a tumbleweed And think of me When you pass my home And cry 'cause I left for the city And I ain't coming back I ain't waiting around Broken promises were never enough to keep a girl On the ground Size 13 feet Walking through a field Deep inside of the hollow So take a seat At the restaurant We used to call our own 'Cause I ain't coming back I ain't waiting around Broken promises were never enough to keep a girl On the ground And I'll fly away Don't run to me 'Cause I'll be high up in the sky, soaring And I'll fly away Don't run to me 'Cause I'll be high up in the sky, soaring I'll leave my baggage behind I'll leave my baggage behind -instrumental- And I'll fly away Don't run to me 'Cause I'll be high up in the sky, soaring And I'll fly away Don't run to me 'Cause I'll be high up in the sky, soaring I'll leave my baggage behind I'll leave my baggage behind Remember me When you're out there Letting life pass you by like a tumbleweed

Worlds Away 05:03
Sad to say that you're back to your old ways From the old days Before you had me Before you had me Doing the same thing Living the same day That you hated Oh well it's such a shame Oh well it's such a shame And ooh What am I to do When you're worlds away Hard to believe you weren't always a stranger You were my other half, finishing sentences You were completing me I still remember our last day together Summer weather Feels like yesterday I remember everything And ooh What am I to do When you're worlds away When you're worlds away And ooh What am I to do When you're worlds away Sad to say that you're back to your old ways From the old days Before you had me Before you had me And ooh What am I to do When you're worlds away When you're worlds away And ooh What am I to do When you're worlds away

Standstill 03:04
He was a rotten SOB I really shoulda got him Problem was I loved him too much and How do you cut the ties To all those firsts when You’re sifting through a box Under your bed The only thing left to keep him alive in your head In your head And how do you say goodbye to your first love And how do you lie to say you’re okay And what do you do to pass the time When life is at a standstill He was an accident just waiting to happen Don’t know why I let him leave when All he needs is me loving him And him loving me Crying in his arms Just about to break The only thing we had was you and me You and me And how do you say goodbye to your first love And how do you lie to say you’re okay And what do you do to pass the time When life is at a standstill What do you think you’re doing Baby, you’re not welcome here Anymore, oh He was a rotten SOB I really shoulda got him Problem was I loved him too much and How you do you cut the ties? And how do you say goodbye to your first love And how do you lie to say you’re okay And what do you do to pass the time And how do you say goodbye to your first love And how do you lie to say you’re okay And what do you do to pass the time When life is at a standstill

Endlessly 03:27
Roll the window down let the winter air in light your cigarette let the sparks fly again we've only got one night let's make this one count Running down the aisles of a grocery store yeah we're closer now than ever before get your money out I'll double bag the tea We've only got one night And I love you endlessly Hop a train to my door that's what trains are made for You don't know how happy I'd be to find you on my doorstep Pack your duffel bag fill it up with clothes Come away with me to where, who knows maybe Baltimore or somewhere out at sea We've only got one night And I love you endlessly Grab your keys and your coat Fill the gas tank and hit the road You don't know how happy I'd be to find you on my doorstep Curl up next to me on a Sunday night watch the tv as you close your eyes turn the volume down as you fall to sleep We're only got one night And I love you endlessly We've only got one night And I love you endlessly
