Track Name: Lovers
We kissed when I was three
it didn’t mean anything
but looking back it’s all that mattered to me
My world was you and me,
a lego set, a stuffed puppy,
an open door that let the world’s light in
My family moved when I was eight
to a new home far away
to this day all I remember is your face
but it’s probably a good thing
cause now we’re so different it seems
last time we talked we were opposites on everything

Puppy love always end
we grow up, can’t play pretend
or at least we start doing it differently
I fell in love in the 8th grade
on every note we wrote fake names
turned into couples from the big screen
We made out and watched tv
she meant everything
so when she left I went into hiding

After a couple of years
a good friend became more dear
but I never had the guts to say anything
she was older than me
she felt out of my league
too caught up in the books she was reading
So when she moved away
it kinda sucked and ruined my day
but now I’m thankful for the friendship she gives me

And when I was 19
I found the girl of my dreams
a blonde hair, green eyed beauty
I laughed at everything she’d say
I loved the way she said my name
but in the end she just couldn’t love me
I tried to give her everything
I wrote her into all my dreams
but my bed was always cold the next morning
Yeah, my bed was always cold the next morning.
Track Name: Winner
You're more pretty than the chocolate rose bouquet
I made for you on Valentine's Day
I hope that it was sweet and my thorns didn't make you bleed
cause you deserve the best from me

You're more funny than the shows we used to watch
You made me laugh more than Liz Lemon and maybe Michael Scott
and yet you're darker than my basement when we turned the TV off
you kept me guessing so my love would never stop

You're sweeter than the sea salt ice cream
You made for me that anniversary
We watched the sun set in black robe and white dress
and it's the sweetest thing I think I've ever seen
Track Name: Spit Out Words
If I could go back 10 years
to tell you I love you
I hope that you know I would
I’d fight back the fear of being rejected
ask you to join me
as I hit the road

but you were a song I never could quite sing
I guess in time we all regret some things

I think I screwed up my chance
to be a real writer
when I was 8 years old
I packed up my bags
and moved up to kansas
I put down my pen
when I should have made it my home

I miss the feeling of granite in my teeth
Spitting out words like they didn’t mean a thing

Now I write down these words in this old notebook
and I beat out these songs on my guitar
and I try not to think of you too often
but most days it just gets too hard
Track Name: Makeshift Bed
There was smoke on your breathe as we lay in that makeshift bed where I watched you close your eyes and fall asleep
and as we lay in the dark I gave you my heart but you said if you wait for me it may just be a waste of your time

but don’t you fear
I will wait for you here
until the morning
breaks through the night
until you know we’ll get this right

Now I fake my repose, try to smile, try to joke
but I know we’re both actors playing our roles
but you let me in, let me see under your skin
and I saw the things I fear deep in myself

but don’t you fear
I will wait for you here
until the morning
breaks through the night
until you know we’ll get this right

but don’t you fear
I will wait for you here
until the morning
breaks through the night
until you know we’ll get this right
Track Name: Back Against The Bough
The book is open on my bed
but I can’t read another page
I’ve read the story a thousand times
I’m not ready for the ending to change
I’ve got your letter on my desk
the one you wrote before you left
and now I’m thinking quietly
of what I wanted us to be
how you came into my life
and I fed you selfish lies
I never meant to do anything
to harm you despite the way things seem

to stack against me know
with my back against the bough

I’ll draw you pictures of my dreams
if you’ll tell me what they mean
my words have been my enemies
never matching their meanings
All I ever meant to say
was that things will be okay
for both you and for me
If you’re happy, that’s all I need

It’s why I lay awake at night
to try and figure out my life
If I can’t be your everything
I’ll try to give you more than you need
Track Name: Untitled II
It’s been a year now
I still think about you every day
it hasn’t gotten any easier
I just lay around and wait
for memories to turn real
for phone calls that never come
for the look in your eyes
you know the one I never

You’ve found a new home now
I can’t believe you’re really gone
we needed each other
how could you every carry on
but I can see that you’re happy
he gives you more than I ever could
I swear I gave you my best thought
Although it never did much

You know I don’t really blame you
you had every right to leave
still I’d do it all over
this time I swear I’d change some things
I’d be less of a liar
focus more on you
and less on me
really show you I love you
give you a reason not to
not to
