Track Name: Mesmerized
You’ve got words like sugar and
Strawberry lips blue eyes
You your heart beats faster and you
Like to watch me smile

You with your country music and endless movie lines
I swear you compliment me just to watch me hide my eyes

And I can’t get enough of your silly jokes and comeback lines
And I can’t get enough of guessing whether you've changed you mind

Don’t go just yet
You say we can lose a little sleep tonight
Don’t go just yet
Uh oh uh oh

You like to watch me struggle and I like to roll my eyes
You tell me I’m too pretty but I'm pretty mesmerized

You can't get enough of my vintage clothes when you're in ties
You can't get enough of my clumsy words; you say it's all right

Don’t go just yet
You say we can lose a little sleep tonight
Don’t go just yet
Uh oh uh oh

Ah ah mesmerized
Ah ah mesmerized
Ah ah mesmerized
Ah ah mesmerized

I've got words too honest and
Strawberry hair blue eyes
You make my heart beat faster
Yea you like to make me smile
Track Name: What's Going On
You said you believe God put us here on earth in seven days
I laughed in your face then I said sorry, sorry, that’s my mistake
You said it’s okay, no you don’t real the bible every day
Then you asked me to explain why I’m so dead set on the other way

And you’ve got me wondering what’s going on inside in that head
‘Cause I’m not the kind of girl who looks good in a sundress

Small town, big farms- well, I don’t know much ‘bout that at all
And I can play whatever you please on these keys, but I can’t catch, I can’t catch a football
‘Cause I missed the small town living, they’re always giving, I’m not like you at all
So you laugh at plans ‘cause you haven’t thought that far at all

And you’ve got me wondering what’s going on inside in that head
‘Cause I’m not the kind of girl who looks good in a sundress
And you’ve got me wondering what’s going on inside in that head
‘Cause I’m just a city girl who plays around with the Bible’s words

Tell me that tonight when you walk me home you won’t just leave me like you do
This time let me in- the story could end with me and you
Me and you

And you’ve got me wondering what’s going on inside in that head
‘Cause I’m not the kind of girl, no I’m not the kind of girl
You’ve got me wondering what’s going on inside in that head
‘Cause I’m not the kind of girl who looks good in a sundress
You’ve got me wondering what’s going on inside in that head
‘Cause I’m just a city girl who plays around with the Bible’s words
You’ve got me wondering what’s going on
Track Name: Unwind
He walks and the road follows
He talks and the bright girl swallows her tongue
He turns and the sun spins around him
He sits and the earth rises to him

That’s how he looks to me
Should I let him see or

Would that unwind me into tangled pools of thread
Is this mess too complicated to let out of my head
‘Cause you undo me and if you knew I couldn’t fool you
Yea if I find the truth I’m scared that it will break me and you wont be there to remake me

He walks and my eyes trace him around the room
He talks and I ears hear only him
‘Cause he moves and everything moves around him
No matter what he does my mind revolves around him

That’s how it is for me
Should I let him see or

Would that unwind me into tangled pools of thread
Is this mess too complicated to let out of my head
‘Cause you undo me and if you knew I couldn’t fool you
Yea if I find the truth I’m scared that it will break me and you wont be there to remake me

Tell me this wasn’t your intention
Tell me you didn’t look back to see me waiting
Tell me you never meant to hurt me
You cant tell me any of those things

‘Cause you unwind me into tangled pools of thread
This mess is too complicated to let out of my head
Yea you undo me and if you knew I couldn’t fool you
And if I find the truth I’m scared that it will break me and you wont be there to remake me

Please remake me
Remake me
Please remake me
Remake me

Dead Jones, I'd been hoping that you'd stay but
Dear Jones, you've got a habit of running away so
Tell me, it’s not me, it’s you, is that ever really true? And
I never took you for a coward

But I told you just how I felt
And you couldn’t even be honest with me

Hey Jones, you messed this one up
Hey Jones, it is all your fault
This isn’t even your own song
‘Cause there are so many boys just like you

Hey Jones, I used to miss you

And I believe in second chances more than I believe in anything
But two's enough, no never three, ‘cause I wont lose my dignity

Oh I believe in second chances more than I believe in anything
But two's enough, no never three so
Don’t you dare come running back to me, yea

Track Name: Outside the Line
I’ve fallen for someone who’s guarded
And I’m outside the line
I don’t know what it is about him but
He’s the apple of my eye

‘Cause Adam told me not pick from the wrong tree
And daddy told me not to forget honesty
But I can’t help it I cant help it I cant help it when he’s with me
Only this locked door makes me forage for the key, key

I can’t focus there’s too much pressure on me
And I can’t push when I’m moving through debris
I wanna be who I know I shouldn’t be

‘Cause Adam told me not pick from the wrong tree
And daddy told me not to forget honesty
But I can’t help it I can’t help it I can’t help it when he's with me
Only this locked door makes me forage for the key, key

But eve gets banished from the Garden where she had everything
And I forgot the words my daddy said to me
Yea Eve gets banished from the garden where she had everything for free

Now I’ve broken the lock but I’ve found the key
Now I’ve broken the lock but I’ve found the key
Now I’ve broken the lock but I’ve found the key

'Cause Adam told me not pick from the wrong tree
And daddy told me not to forget honesty
But I can’t help it I cant help it I cant help it when he's with me
Only this locked door makes me forage for the key, key

Now I’ve broken the lock but I’ve found the key
Adam told me not to pick from the wrong tree
Track Name: Let Me Know
No, I don’t know what’s going on
I just know how to fit inside your arms
And I don’t know what’s up your sleeve

So hold my hands in secrecy
And you can play these games with me
But I wont go down easily
I’ll let you hear my scream

So let me know, did you let me go?
I, I hold
I hold strong, so when you know you’re wrong
Speak to me, I don’t need this much room to breathe

You said stop and you said go
You said speak but hush don’t tell
You said wait now you say don’t
Don’t

So pick me up then push me down
Pull me close to turn around
Well I am lost but I’ll be found
Found

Let me know, did you let me go?
I, I hold
I hold strong, so when you know you’re wrong
Speak to me. I don’t need this much room to breathe

‘Cause it is silent in this crowded room of people
And I am drowning in your twisted up bits of words
So let your teeth drop sounds, I’m lost in your cathedral
You echo in my darkest shades of night

So let me know, did you let me go?
I, I hold
I hold strong, so when you know you’re wrong
Speak to me, I don’t need this much room to breathe

Let me know, did you let me go?
I, I hold
I hold strong, so when you know you’re wrong
Speak to me, I don’t need this much room to breathe
Track Name: November
Ask me how I’m doing
Well I think he knows
Ask me where I’m going
So what if I don’t

So what if I shine when he’s around
And what if he’s no good
Tell me what am I supposed to do ‘cause

His light is contagious
I tried to escape it

So please take me in once again
Tell me how you got so deep in my head
And please show me how you broke me down
And captivate me with your smile
Breathe me in

And now that there’s time
Let’s play November, remember September, before October brought us down

His light is contagious
And I tried to escape it

So please take me in once again
Tell me how you got so deep in my head
And please show me how you broke me down
And captivate me with your smile
Breathe me in

Oh let’s play November
Oh let’s play November
Ooo yea, let’s play November

Let’s play November, remember September, before October brought us down

His light is contagious
I don’t want to escape it

I’ll always remember
I’ll always remember
Playing September
Playing September
Playing September
With you
Track Name: Fast As I Can
I never thought I’d see you
Forget what I meant to you
Wasted away the moments
If only I had known it

I never thought you’d behave
How you’ve been acting lately
I never saw it coming
Would’ve known to start my running

Fast as I can
Get away before I fall too hard
Fast as I can
Wish I’d known with a head start

You knew that I was broken
Asked for my weakest moments
Said those were what shone behind my eyes

Played the part of the one who cared
Before you left you had me repaired
I was just falling for your games
‘Cause when you left I fell right over again

Fast as I can
Get away before I fall too hard
Fast as I can
Wish I’d known with a head start

With a head start
Oh, oh…

I never saw it coming
Would’ve known to start my running

Fast as I can
Get away before I fall too hard
Fast as I can
Wish I’d known with a head start
Fast as I can
Get away before I fall too hard
Fast as I can
Wish I’d known with a head start

I never saw it coming
Would’ve known to start my running
Track Name: Scripted
Look at me oh look close darling
'Cause I've been running round just shouting out your name
Walk right by why don't you darling
One day you'll be calling my name

Wait don't tell me anything wont
Be the same when you're gone

This is
When I write my goodbye
Scripted run through a thousand times
This is
When you interrupt me
Here’s your cue
Its a-a-a-all up to you

I’ve never been the type to believe
Always laughing at those fairytale endings
But this time I’m sure you're not ready
To let yourself, let yourself let me go

Now wait don't tell me anything
Unless it’s that you were wrong

This is
When I write my goodbye
Scripted run through a thousand times
This is
When you interrupt me
Here’s your cue
Its a-a-a-all up to you

I've been hoping that this times cast right
But looks like I might be rewriting the script again
‘Cause your parts fading and your characters under review
Maybe my fairytale story just isn't for you

This is
Where I say my goodbye
Scripted run through a thousand times
This is
When you say you're sorry
Are you sorry?

This is
When I write my goodbye
Scripted run through a thousand times
This is
When you interrupt me
Here’s your cue
Its a-a-a-all up to you
Track Name: Grey
I know you see me even when you pretend you don’t
And I know these things aren’t black and white
‘Cause I am stuck inside a grey scale
If I could tell you where I stood

And I promise I’m getting over you
But then things change when I see your face
When I hear you play
It’s all grey

Oh I know these things aren't changing in a few days they're changing now
And I know these feeling come and go and go and go around
Yea they come and go and go around
Yea they come and go and go around

And when we walk the city stops at a standstill
The streets narrow into you
You’re dressed in grey
You’re dressed in grey
And it’s all grey when I’m with you

Oh I know these things aren’t changing in a few days they’re changing now
And I know these feeling come and go and go and go around
Yea they come and go and go around
Yea they come and go and go around

When she kisses you so casually I feel it in my knees
And I feel more weak with every endearing term that you speak
Yea when she kisses you so casually I feel it in my knees
And when you take her hand my heart it skips a beat

Oh I know these things aren’t changing in a few days they’re changing now
And I know these feeling come and go and go and go around
Yea they come and go and go around
Yea they come and go and go around
Yea they come and go and go around
Yea they come and go and go around

Yea when she kisses you so casually I feel it in my knees
And when you take her hand my heart it skips a beat
Track Name: Think of Me
Say you’ll stay
Say you wont go
‘Cause once you’re gone
I lose control

Yea its too hard
To say goodbye
I close my eyes
And suddenly you’re gone

‘Cause I don’t know how to feel without you
And when you’re gone
I count the days till you come around
But then I trace the minutes till I’m alone again

‘Cause you’re the only one I’d cry for
And you’re the one I’d speed up time for
You’re the one I close my eyes for at night

You’re the one the one I see
Yea you’re the one the one I need
Do you know that I’m dying for you? no you don’t
Do you ever think of me?

When we sit
Beneath the stars
But above rooftops
I’m so close to being in your arms

It hurts
To come so close
But then it stings
To be so far away from you

‘Cause I don’t know how to think without you
‘Cause when you’re gone
I count the days till you come around
But then I trace the minutes till I’m alone again

‘Cause you’re the only one I’d cry for
And you’re the one I’d speed up time for
You’re the one I close my eyes for at night

You’re the one the one I see
Yea you’re the one the one I need
Do you know that I’m dying for you? no you don’t
Do you ever think of me?

You’re the one my music flows for
You’re the one I lose control for
Not a mark outside the page
You’re every god damn line I cant erase

‘Cause you’re the only one I’d cry for
And you’re the one I’d speed up time for
You’re the one I close my eyes for at night

You’re the one the one I see
Yea you’re the one the one I need
Do you know that I’m dying for you? no you don’t
Do you ever think of me?

Please think of me
Hey do you think of me?
Track Name: Water Drops
One step, one look my way
Feels like I’m speeding down a highway
Tell me everything you’ve ever thought before

One day one night in your arms
I cannot resist your charm
Tell me everything you’ve ever felt before

‘Cause I’d do anything to take that chance with you
And id fly anywhere if I could guarantee you were there

One week and I’m still feeling fine
Two weeks I’m feeling intertwined
Three weeks I miss you

One more I’m sure I will survive
Two more a little less alive
Three weeks till I see you

‘Cause I’d do anything to take that chance with you
And id fly anywhere if I could guarantee you were there

And now the white ivory is stained with salt
And these water drops, they’re coming from my heart
I wont go until you swear that

You’d do anything to take that chance with me
And you’d fly anywhere if you could guarantee I was there

‘Cause I’d do anything, anything for you
And I’d fly anywhere if I could guarantee you were there

‘Cause I’d do anything, anything for you
Yea I do anything for you

Oh I’d do anything to take that chance with you
Track Name: Bruises
Promise me you’ll watch yourself, and tell me if you’re crashing
There is someone to catch you no matter where you go
I don’t care what you’ve been told 'cause

Will you live with these bruises for the rest of your life?
Put up the fight, put up the fight
‘Cause I cant stand to watch these bruises fail to fade
Its not all right, no it’s not all right

Fine, play your mind games with me
But I know what you’re thinking no matter what you say
And saying fine is the easiest lie to see through when I know every flaw inside and out of you oh

Will you live with these bruises for the rest of your life?
Put up the fight, put up the fight
‘Cause I cant stand to watch these bruises fail to fade
Its not alright no its not alright

Take my hand and I will find you somewhere to go
Take your tears and wash the pain out of your throat ‘cause

Will you live with these bruises for the rest of your life?
Put up the fight, put up the fight
‘Cause I cant stand to watch these bruises fail to fade
Its not alright no its not alright
Not alright, not alright
Don’t tell me everything’s fine
Track Name: Crossword Puzzles
Lay here with me
Waste time breathing
That’s all I’ll do
‘Cause it’s not worth talking to you

Shoes on the floor
I’m wrapped in your arms
I breathe in your breath
And count the freckles on your chest

Ooo maybe we could be good at each other
Ooo maybe we could waste tonight together

You sing to me, out of key
Crossword puzzles and coffee
Please let me go
If I were stronger I’d break your hold

Fingers crossing
Your lips grinning
Our eyes lock in
And I can’t help but make it you who I believe in

Ooo maybe we could be good at each other
Ooo maybe we could waste tonight together

Green shirt, blue eyes
I am drowning in your lies
Track Name: Epilogue (You're the Shadow)
It took two years but I stopped biting my nails and
I tried and I failed 'cause I laughed when I cared
Since then my hair's turned red and my
Heart's loved and bled and so much has changed but you keep staying the same

I still dress up when you call
You aren't even there at all
I smile when you're there but I
Cry when you're gone

And I cringe when we hug
'Cause you're too far to touch
And I try to let go but you keep
Pulling me close

You're the shadow that doesn't leave at night
Still there in the faded light
Compared when everything seemed right
You'll always be in sight

It's a little sad
And I'm a little sorry
But not sorry enough to change my mind

It's a little sad
And I'm a little sorry
But not sorry enough to change my mind
