Track Name: Lines On My Face
I’m looking at these lines on my face
And for the first time they feel justified
Life’s been flying right on by and
I haven’t had time to think

Wisdom was not to be found in a kid running down a dream
A king without his queen and pockets
Filled with disregarded memories

So I’m walking out
And I’m talking about
Leaving behind this life
That I’m better off without

I’m looking at the time and the place
And for the first time I am relieved inside
Life’s been flying right on by and
I haven’t had time to think

Useless and obtrusive now
But I still see it all in dreams
Pleasant as we seem though there’s still
Nothing left beyond those bed sheets

So I’m walking out
And I’m talking about
Leaving behind this life
That I’m better off without

I know that it ain’t easy
Living with all this strife believe me
Oh baby just don’t squeeze me
Cause I still got them knives in my back

So I’m walking out
And I’m talking about
Leaving behind this life
That I’m better off without
Track Name: Simple Things
I miss your forehead and the way it feels
Pressed against my lips
I miss the way you rant about waitresses
And how they don’t get tips
I miss your tattoos and the little shoes
The heels that don’t exist
I could go on about the simple things I miss

I used to watch you in the morning gloom
Making up your face
And I’d bet on how many lines you’d draw
To sigh and quickly erase
Tell me how could someone hate to have such
Beauty in their face
Woah I’d ask myself in silence everyday

Ooh you know you’re a stone cold fox
Making all the boys in the high school drop and
You know that you’re a stone faced killer
Put you in the pillows till we’re breaking all the windows baby

I miss your forehead and the way it felt
Pressed against my lips
So now when I lock eyes with these waitresses
They always get my tip
I miss the rides home and the telephone
That never left your grip
And every boy you never thought to give the hint
And every pretty little lie you left me with
I could go on about the simple things I miss
Track Name: That Girl
That girl wouldn’t let you sleep
That girl had you up all week

Lost your mind for days
Proof is on your face
Nights, they find you wide awake
She’ll always take your spine out of place

That girl thought she got away
That girl words she need not say

Hollow in her kiss
Wallow in her myth
Doesn’t matter who she’s with
It’s just another name on the list

That girl wouldn’t let you breathe
That girl had us on our knees
Begging baby please
Won’t you let me be
Won’t you let me be
Won’t you let me be
Won’t you let me be
Won’t you let me be
Won’t you let me be
Won’t you let me be
Won’t you let me be
Track Name: Under The Covers
I’m so stressed I'm so stressed
I'm so stressed I don’t wanna get dressed
I’m such a mess today
I’m so stressed it’s on my face
Walking round town like I just got maced
I need my happy place

Under the covers not a care in the world
No one else but me and my girl
No one there to bother us or annoy me
Lovers with nothing to hide
Don’t mind me I’m along for the ride
I don’t want to think about that stress

I’m so stressed I’m so stressed
Monkey and an anvil sitting on my chest
I’m such a mess today
I'm so stressed that I could cry
Fill a whole bathtub drown myself and die
I need a place to hide

Under the covers not a care in the world
No one else but me and my girl
No one there to bother us or annoy me
Lovers with nothing to hide
Don’t mind me I’m along for the ride

Too many opinions of these people that have dominion
To risk the thought of saying no
I just don’t know how to tell them so
I wish I had the ability to handle my responsibility
Singing all I wanna do is get along with all of you
But it’s not worth it
I can’t even word it
Track Name: Change Your Mind
Life is slipping through an hourglass
As salt stones illuminate the room
Questions running through the dialogue
As answers are hiding in the gloom

Hesitation in conversation
It’s these occasions that
Tend to change your mind

Distance doesn’t seem to matter now
As time is tying matter in knots
Vibrant is your sense of normalcy
But you’re frightened
That you are who you’re not

Hesitation in conversation
It’s these occasions that
Tend to change your mind

Benign

Hesitation in conversation
It’s these occasions that
Tend to change your mind
Admiration for soul vibration
It’s these occasions that
Tend to change your mind

Benign
Track Name: Looking For Love
I had a woman with the devil in her eyes
She ain’t around no more but still has me hypnotized
One night she laid me down and said boy don’t you try
Pinned my hands to the bed and took me for a ride
Aah now yes she did

I had a feeling something was going awry
So I stopped coming round for her in the nighttime
Yeah her bark went quiet
Scars grew from the bites
And all the darkness slowly came into the light

I said I’m looking for love in all the wrong places
Looking for love in all the wrong places
Looking for love in all the wrong places
Longing for a touch with all the wrong faces
Looking for love in all the wrong places

When will someone make it right
Lord I’m praying that you send someone into my life that’s
Worth a damn holds my hand and doesn’t have another man
So come on baby I’m looking forward, to giving you the world
Track Name: Forgiving (As You Think)
Your mother always said that patience was a virtue
Carry all it’s weight in moments that you go through
Taking little time to comprehend my thoughts
Is making up your mind as someone that you’re not

Keep on stabbing at me
Take your shots and believe
All was worth it as I bleed

The summer that we spent our days out in the water
Taught me to repent and live a little calmer
There’s nothing that you did but lose an honest friend
And sometimes that’s the bid you place to mend your head

Keep on buying the dream
See my car parked and leave
Cause maybe you’re just what she needs

I’m not trying to fight you
Trying to spite you
Or ruin your days
I’m just bringing some light to
Things I advise you
To change in your ways

Cause the world ain’t as forgiving as you think

Your brother always said of things that made me worry
And funny how you left like you were in a hurry
I cherish every night I saw you sleeping there
Dreaming of the guys to whom I am compared

Keep on lying to me
Death always comes in three’s
Save some face and let me be

I’m not trying to fight you
Trying to spite you
Or ruin your days
I’m just bringing some light to
The things I advise you
To change in your ways

Cause the world ain’t as forgiving as
The world ain't as forgiving as
The world ain't as forgiving as you think
