Track Name: Mr. Mystery
Hey baby got your magnifying glass out
What are you looking for now?
What are you looking for?
Said, Mr. Mystery I’m trying to explain now
What you’re trying to figure out
I’ve got it all right here
So, come a little bit closer baby
I can whisper it in your ear”

(chorus)
It’s a chaotic tragedy
Starts with us and it ends with me
And I’ve been hanging on too tightly
Looks like it’s time to let go of you
Mr. Mystery

Can’t move a muscle ‘cause you’ve got me petrified now
And I’ve been sitting in this chair for an hour
Tell me what are you looking for
It’s getting crazy and I wanna turn this around
Ask you a question maybe you can’t figure out
But you’ve got it all right here
Yeah

Chorus

Maybe it’s a cover up
Or maybe baby this could just be love
I’ve learned my lesson
I’ve had enough

Hey baby got your magnifying glass out

Chorus

Chorus
Track Name: Never Wanted to Stay
I am wandering home
I’ve been searching for the roads we used to walk on
You warned me to read the signs
I’ve been trying

(chorus)
But when the wind stole you away
I swore I had nothing to say
No, but, I never wanted to stay
No, I never wanted to stay

I knew you before time stopped
I tried to tell you that before you had to go
But the ghost in you couldn’t wait
So I’ll say it again, and again

Chorus

Ooh
Ooh
Ooh

Chorus
Track Name: Mine
You seem to wanna say you know everything
But can you ever be sure you know anything
I don’t think so
No, no, no, I don’t think so
We’re walking in the dark ‘cause you can’t sleep
But, we’re trembling in the silence ‘cause you can’t speak
Well I’m dying here
Yeah baby I’m trying here

(chorus)
I can’t seem to understand you
I just wanna hold your hand and smile
I don’t care if I have to ask you a thousand times
Well, honesty can only take you so far
Til it leaves us all behind
Doesn’t matter as long as you’ll be mine

Just be mine

I’m running out the door in my bare feet
And I’ll keep chasing you up and down these streets
Until I get through to you
‘Cause all I really want is for you to see
That I want you just like you want me
Well, I’m trying here
Yeah baby I’m trying here

Chorus

It doesn’t matter as long as you’ll be mine
Track Name: Skin
Permanent ink reveals
Paper hearts with love notes
Written on my skin
I can slip beneath the world
And read them
My heart’s on a string
Baby only for you
You have me wrapped up tight
And I like the place that I am in

(chorus)
Because a day is like a second
And a week is like an hour
When I’m with you
But, light and sound won’t catch up
Because they cannot move fast enough
When I’m with you

Time is a constant way
To love, to learn and give in
Defying the odds of gravity’s
Ungracious turns
I wanted to know what you were thinking
You told me your heart’s own way of living
And I love this place that we are in

Chorus

Chorus

When I’m with you
When I’m with you
When I’m with you
When I’m with you

Permanent ink reveals
Paper hearts with love notes
Written on my skin
They’re written on my skin
Track Name: Choke
Just because we sleep in the same bed
Doesn’t mean we have the same dreams
Doesn’t mean we want the same things
It doesn’t really mean a damn thing
I’ve had just about enough of you
So sad – there’s nothing I could really do
I’m lost…pulling my hair out by the fists
What has this become?

(choke)
When I’d rather take a cigarette break
Than talk to you any old day
I’d choke, I’d choke, I’d choke
‘Cause I don’t want you to do it for me

Just because we walk on the same road
Doesn’t mean we’re walking together
It doesn’t mean anything like forever
It doesn’t really mean it’s getting better
‘Cause you’ll say anything you need to say
I’ll take anything I need to take
A grain of salt would be greatly appreciated
Yeah, so tell me, what has this become?

Chorus

I’d rather take a jump out of a plane
Than have to tell you the truth today
You’d choke, yeah

Chorus
Track Name: Run Away
What more do you want
I can’t give any more
I won’t tell you it again
I already lost you once
Can’t take it a second time
I won’t learn my lesson twice
No, I won’t learn my lesson twice

(chorus)
Don’t run away
No baby, don’t say what you’re gonna say
Because you know that I love you
So don’t run away from me

Oil and water
Can only separate
I hope that we are not the same
It has to be different now
Unless you want it to
Happen all over again

Chorus

Well it seems like it’s too good to be true
Like it’s too good to be you
Like it’s too good not to do
Yeah

Chorus

No don’t run away from me
Oh
Track Name: Long Ride Home
Such a long ride home
I almost forgot
It’s been far too long
To retrace the plot
The sun drags us around, around, around, around, around, around
But, you brought me down
You brought me down
You brought me down

(chorus)
I remembered the way home
When you sang me to sleep
My hair tucked behind my ear
So I could hear every note you’d weep
Thanks for breaking my heart
Gave me an excuse to sing the bad news
But ever since I started
I only dream of you

It’s not an empty song
I wrote it myself
It has a message to you
And a cry for help
The earth spins us around, around, around, around, around, around
I’ll never let you down
Never let you down
Never let you down

Chorus

The sun drags us around, around, around, around
The earth spins us around, around, around, around, around, around
I only dream of you
The earth spins us around, around, around, around, around, around
And I promise, I’ll never let you down
Never let you down
Never let you down

Chorus
Track Name: Conversation Piece
Should I be nice, should I be honest
Baby, tell me now are you just stuck up in the closet
Because, well I think that I deserve to know
You’re running faster than you said you could
So will you run away from me faster than you said you would?
I think that I deserve to know

(chorus I)
What a great way to start a conversation
Blood is rushing to your face
I can tell that you’re shaking
I think that you, you better leave
You’re just a conversation piece

I’m moving on, feelin’ better
Are you itchy ‘cause you’re nervous or is it just your ugly sweater
Well I think that I should probably go, oh
And I can’t believe all the things I said
To make you feel like you were good enough
Baby I lied so much

Chorus I

(chorus II)
What a great way to start a conversation
I’m looking for the one, but you thought that this was just for fun
I think that you, you better leave
You’re just a conversation piece

Your sweaty hands give it away
It’s more bad news today

Chorus I + II
Track Name: Gonna Be (ft. Wendy Lewis)
(chorus)
Gonna be goin’ down
Gonna be goin’ down, oh
Gonna be goin’ down
You better catch me
Catch me before I…

Gonna be a racecar driver baby
Thought I could be anything, oh
Isn’t that what you told me, mama
So naïve I believed everything

Chorus

Gonna be breathing slowly
Breathing in the toxic air, oh
I wanna see you breathing with me, baby
If I tell you the truth will you even care?

Chorus

Catch me before I go
Catch me before I go
Oh
Catch me before I
Catch me before I
Track Name: Kitschy Bitch
Saw your reflection in the kitchen sink
Apparently my eyes have started to think
For themselves
For themselves
My fingers wander through the filthy mess
That has accumulated on your head
And my heart swells
My heart swells

(chorus)
Because it’s just like a dream
When you meant nothing to me
But I wake up and it isn’t so
My feet are barely touching the ground
And I won’t look back now
When I wake up, I have to go
I have to go

My knees are shaking on this sunny day
And my mouth has nothing else to say
A little help please
A little help, yeah

Chorus

But I didn’t see
What you were doing to me
But I wake up
And I feel so low
I feel so low

Chorus
