Track Name: Better
You called me a loser and I asked what for.
You asked for all of me, now you're asking for more?
I try my best to keep this boat afloat.
But when you're trying to tear it down,
I'm just fine with sinking low.

Just fly and realize: no one's better than you.
Stop crying, everyone else is pretending too.
Just fly and realize: no one's better than you.
Stop crying, everyone else is pretending too.

You tell me to do this and you tell me to do that.
Well as a matter of fact, I'm not your lab rat.
So just take a couple steps back and
give me some room to breathe.
'Cause I'm not going to stop my world
to fulfill your every need.

Just fly and realize: no one's better than you.
Stop crying, everyone else is pretending too.
Just fly and realize: no one's better than you.
Stop crying, everyone else is pretending too.

They're pretending too.
'Cause no one is better than you.
Track Name: Blank Stare
Everything is still, there's no movement at all
And I'm stuck staring at this wall.
I'm looking way too deep, waiting for something to change.
'Cause I'm a flower that needs the rain.

I'm so tired of staring at this old wall.
I need someone to come along.

How far must I run? How high must I climb
before I find a beat and a rhyme.
How long can I go on singing this same old song.
The one my heart has sung all along
Hope comes in my dreams, She runs at me.
But I wake before I can see.

I'm so tired of staring at this old wall.
I need someone to come along.

I'm so tired of staring at this old wall.
I need someone to come along.
Track Name: Everything I Need
I've got a time bomb in my head.
I can't breathe or else I'm dead.
That's okay because some words are better of unsaid.
I've got a blue bird as a friend,
who taught me to give instead of lend.
Now I've lost my love every place that I've been.

If you need to breathe, don't come to me.
'Cause I'm out of air.

I've got the sun
I've got gravity
I've got everything I need

So what's missing when I look above?
I need somewhere to put my love.

I've got ideas for every step that I take after every breath
that I make just to keep my head up.
I've got hope so I can dream
I've got a mouth so I can sing
I've got a heart so I can change what I mean.

If you want to breathe, don't come to me.
'Cause I'm out of air.

I've got the sun
I've got gravity
I've got everything I need

So what's missing when I look above?
I need somewhere to give my love.
Track Name: Boat
I'm floating along in my little sail boat.
Singing the same old song; the same old note
You're trying to fly but you can't find wings.
You're trying to die because you cant find friends.

You're "doing alright", that's what you say.
You're "doing okay", at least that's what you say.
But you climb so high, then you fall all the way back down
You don't even make a sound
You just say you're "okay".

You're lost in your zoned out mind.
Just trying to find a place to spend some time.
You're calling out but you don't know who.
Would open their ears and listen to you.

You're "doing alright", that's what you say.
You're "doing okay", at least that's what you say.
But you climb so high, then you fall all the way back down
You don't even make a sound
You just say you're "okay".

You just say you're "okay".
Track Name: The Forest
We left your car and left this world.
We went so far that my head swirled.
We thought, "One of these days we are bound to come back down"

We went in the forest
We followed a trail.
We tried to find our way out of this world.
We tried to find our home.
We thought, "One of these days we are bound to break on through".

I do love you.
Well I do, I do love you.

When I get lost, I follow you.
'Cause when I get lost, so do you.
You know one of these days we are are bound to find our way.

When I get lonely, I go to you
'Cause when I get lonely, so do you.
You know one of these days we are bound to break on through.

I do love you.
Well I do, I do love you.

Down in the river by the old covered bridge,
We found each other and old life knowledge.
One of these days we are bound to be in a haze.

I do love you.
Oh I do, I do love you.

I do love you.
Oh I do, I do love you.

We left your car, and left this world.
Track Name: I Don't Want To Fight
My best isn't good enough just because I think too much.
Differently, I guess, is also wrong.
I try my best to be what you want me to be.
But it's too hard to believe.

How am I supposed to know what happened so long ago?
I'm too busy loving you.
How am I supposed to know what happened so long ago?
I just want to know how to love you more.

I can see it in your eyes when you start to cry.
I'm sorry but I just can't lie.
It pains me to think of the change I could bring.
Just one lie; Say "I believe".

We are living on alright but there's no change in sight.
I don't want to think about the end.
We get along alright but there's no change in sight.
The last thing I want to do is get in a fight.

How am I supposed to know what happened so long ago?
I'm too busy loving you.
How am I supposed to know what happened so long ago?
I just want to know how to love you more.

I don't want to fight anymore.
I just want to love you more.

I don't want to fight anymore.
I just want to love you more.
I don't want to fight anymore.
I just want to love you more.

'Cause I love you too much to let you go.
This I hope you know.
Track Name: I Hear You
I hear you crying.
I don't want you to feel that way.
I hear you saying, "Oh I don't think I can make it another day"

I want you to know.
You can always come back home.
I'll be here.
Waiting on you.

I know you're trying.
I sure hope that you can find your way.
I hear you fighting.
Oh, I don't want it to be that way.

I want you to know.
You can always come back home.
I'll be here.
Waiting on you.

I'll be here.
Waiting on you.
Track Name: Some Words
I remember the days when I was in a haze.
Those were the best days of my life.
There was no time, no nothing on my mind.
I had no reason to lie.

Oh oh oh, oh oh oh, that's right.
That's how I want to live my life.
Oh oh oh, oh oh oh, that's right.
That's how I want to live my life.

I remember the days when I was in a haze.
Those were the best days of my life.
My problems didn't bother me.
I'm not sure if I even had any.
Well that's the way I want to live.

Oh oh oh, oh oh oh, that's right.
That's how I want to live my life.
Oh oh oh, oh oh oh, that's right.
That's how I want to live my life.

I remember one day you said to me
"It's going to rain, It's going to rain"
Well I said, "I feel the same, girl, I feel the pain, I feel the pain"
It's always going to rain.
You have to find your own sunshine.

If you ever get lost, let love take the wheel.
I will show you the way home.
It's not how you think, It's all how you feel.
Our hearts will always be stronger than our heads.
Our hearts will always be stronger than our heads.

Oh oh oh, oh oh oh
Track Name: Torn And Sewn
I've got emotion flowing through me.
I can't let you see.
When I look into your eyes.
I just want to fly.

I'm alone, I'm torn and sewn
Over and over, left unknown
I've got my coat on but I'm still cold.
I'm just looking for someone to love
Someone to love me back.

I've had my heart closed.
I couldn't let go.
Of this old place that I call home.
Now I'm lonely, I want to be free.
I just want to fly.

I'm alone, I'm torn and sewn.
Over and over, left unknown.
I've got my coat on but i'm still cold.
I'm just looking for someone to love.

I'm alone, I'm torn and sewn.
Over and Over, left unknown.
I've got my coat on but I'm still cold.
I'm just looking for someone to love.
Someone to love me back.
Track Name: Your Love Is Strong
When I get home I follow your sound.
Your love is music to my life.
It fills me up just right.

I love you 'till the day I die
and I'll love you after that.
I'll take you far from here.
Somewhere you can lay your head down to rest.

I'm the way I am because you're the way you are.
And I thank you for loving me the way you do.
You took care of me when I couldn't care
less about myself or anybody else.

I'm sorry you don't feel so good.
I would take away the pain if I could.
I'm sorry you don't feel the way you should.
I would make it all okay if I could.
'Cause your love is strong and it carries on.

You're always looking out, yeah, looking out for me.
I feel safe under your wing.
Somewhere I can cling.
You love me no matter what I say or do.
And boy I've said it all,
and I have done it all wrong.
Over and over.

I'm sorry you don't feel so good.
I would take away the pain if I could.
I'm sorry you don't feel the way you should.
I would make it all okay if I could.
'Cause your love is strong and it carries on.

I'm sorry you don't feel so good.
I would take away the pain if I could.
I'm sorry you don't feel the way you should.
I would make it all okay if I could.
'Cause your love is strong and it carries on.
And on and on.
Track Name: Open Up
Why am I so closed?
I feel alone, I feel alone.
I throw away the hope and close my door,
I'm on my own.
I won't let you in,
It's such a sin, It's such a sin..
I stop and won't begin,
I'll never win, I'll never win.

But I will try to find a way,
To love you every day.
I will try to open up,
And let myself pour out.

I put you in the story in my head.
It's in my head.
I make you love me more but it's not real.
It's in my head.
I try to make it real
But that's not love no that's not love.
I try to change myself
But that's not love no that's not love.

But I will try to find a way,
To love you every day.
I will try to open up,
And let myself pour out.

If I don't open up, I'll live alone.
I'll live alone.
If I don't open up, I'll live alone.
I'll sleep alone.
if I don't open up, I'll lose my mind.
I'll lose it all.

If I don't open up, I'll live alone.
I'll live alone.
