Track Name: drop the ball
don't think I didn't notice, don't think that I don't care
'cause we've been breathing all the same air, you ain't got nowhere to run

I've got words to say & you've got hell to pay

I saw you drop that ball back there
I heard you tell them things they wanted to hear
am I a burden my load to heavy to bear?
is this the end? or is it just the beginning?

roller coast, carousel love, ain't them the only ones that have fun?
I didn't think that you would bruise me, I didn't think that this would wound me

well I've been hurt before & you can heal my soul

I saw you drop that ball back there
I heard you tell them things they wanted to hear
am I a burden my load to heavy to bear?
is this the end? or is it just the beginning?
Track Name: smash & grab
I want you so bad I'll risk life
crawling my way to the top
killing my kin for daylight
it's a constant it will never stop

smash & grab, please let me in
I'll be damned, if I don't win

screaming loudly the elders will fall
what a party we'll feast on them all
they facilitate all that I'm worth
as I feed off & give to the earth

smash & grab, please let me in
I'll be damned, if I don't win

I want to grow up to the tree tops
to see what the sky drops
on the workers who make it alive
working my 9 to my 5 & my 5 to my 9
I believe all the strongest survive

oh... oh... no....

smash & grab, please let me in
I'll be damned, if I don't win
smash & grab, please let me in
I'll be damned, if I don't win

oh... oh.... no....
Track Name: how could i of?
I can't help but say that I want to
throw myself across the room
well I been trying so damn hard to be real good

what have I done? who'd I become? how could I of?
tip toe out & leave, I trip on my own feet
as I'm gathering up my soul, I'm heading home

I don't ask for much but this I demand
won't you please just hold my hand?
cause I ain't never been so terrified

what have I done? who'd I become? how could I of?
tip toe out & leave, I trip on my own feet
as I'm gathering up my soul, I'm heading home

make me feel safe, in this dark place
where I've trapped myself, and I can't get out... I can't get out

tip toe out & leave, I trip on my own feet
as I'm gathering up my soul, I'm heading home
Track Name: oblige
honey you blow me away but it's alright
yeah I don't mind, you're dynamite
lookin' for a love found a coach house fairytale
are you for real, how can I tell?
are you for real?

well you don't have to sacrifice
a single second of your life
honey I will always oblige

honey I won't give up, I won't back down
until I've found, you've come around
sittin' on the edge of my seat, what do you say?
I can't not wait, not another day
what do you say?

well you don't have to sacrifice
a single second of your life
honey I will always oblige
Track Name: armed & dangerous
you're guilty of too much pleasure, you're a pleasure whore
I'm batten down all my hatches, you're a predator, make my heart sore

armed & dangerous
you beat me to the punch
you ain't never been here before & you don't know where you at, you took one to the chest

I'm on your list, you're an addict, got the night terrors
just one more hit & have at it, I'll be ready for, your carnival

armed & dangerous
you beat me to the punch
you ain't never been here before & you don't know where you at, you took one to the chest
Track Name: love don't expire
sweaters button done up, like crooked teeth done up, after a fight club where both parties won
the lights on the ceiling, the darkness deceiving, I'm living in shawdows, so please pull me out
please pull me out, please pull me out, please pull me out

my love don't expire, there's no best before date here
just shut up & give up, I'm throwing myself at you dear
my love don't expire, there's no best before date here
I'm here to inspire, take advantage of me dear

please make me somebody, I've been searching all my life, for this validation, I'm lost in this world
so tell me you need me & tell you me you want me, tell everybody else, my love's in your hands
my love's in your hands, my love's in your hands, my love's in your hands

my love don't expire, there's no best before date here
I'm here to inspire, take advantage of me dear

this could be the first time I've been here
and this could be the last time I'll be here
you best be takin' advantage of me dear
'cause this could be the last time I'll be here

my love don't expire....
Track Name: complicated
these days things seem so complicated, come on give me a break
I tend to get somewhat frustrated, come on give me a break

in the morning, when you wake up & you see somebody new
will you tell her that you love her & promise to be true
most days, as life hurries by we go unnoticed
so right now, I'll stand up & cry 'til you take notice

would you comfort me when I grow cold & lonely
would you kick me out if I don't need your help
would you wait to see who's standing right in front of you
before you decide if you're in love with me

in the morning, when you wake up & you see somebody new
will you tell her that you love her & promise to be true
most days, as life hurries by we go unnoticed
so right now, I'll stand up & cry 'til you take notice

and I cry for your love

in the morning, when you wake up & you see somebody new
will you tell her that you love her & promise to be true
Track Name: movie night
there's popcorn & raisins, it's just your style
so won't you come over, there's a movie on tonight
I'm callin' to ask you, if you'll be by my side
I promise I'll behave, there's a movie on tonight

there's a couch & a blanket with your name on it
here's my heart for the takin, would you come & claim it

still & close, hold me tight, this is just right
my favourite place, I'll never leave, there's a movie on tonight
no we don't stop, it's not enough, our busy lives
we'll turn them off & cuddle up, there's a movie on tonight

there's a couch & a blanket with your name on it
here's my heart for the takin, would you come & claim it

I'm open here for all to see, come cover me
I'm open here for all to see, come cover me

so won't you come over, there's a movie on tonight
so won't you come over, there's a movie on tonight
so won't you come over, there's a movie on tonight
Track Name: overtime
drops drop down on my bedroom door, I'm home
another rain fall that I don't seem to notice any more

I can't see what is on my mind
my heart it's been puttin' in overtime

I've been here & you've been there before
I just happen to like coming up through these holes
sometimes it's old & sometimes it's new, but I like the change
open my eyes to fall in love again

I can't see what is on my mind
my heart it's been puttin' in overtime

and I can't wear this disguise all my life
hiding behind someone else isn't right
it ain't right, it ain't right, it ain't right

I can't see what is on my mind
my heart it's been puttin' in overtime
my heart it's been puttin' in overtime....
Track Name: tinkerbell
tinkerbell, tinkerbell where are you now?
I'm coming to see you, you're calling me out
newspaper headlines are screaming your name
you are not so shy no you're not ashamed

your love is in your words
stand up & be heard
your love is in your words
I'm listening now

your careless ways & your softest whispers
I been drunk for days on your lovin' mister
been falling so hard I can't see the ground
I'm so far gone now no I can't be found

your love is in your words
stand up & be heard
your love is in your words
I'm listening now

don't talk so fast
if you want us to keep up, if you want us to beat up, if you want us to disappear
don't you decide
who are the forgiven, I don't want your reasons, I just want to open my eyese

your love is in your words
stand up & be heard
your love is in your words
I'm listening now
Track Name: don't make straights
lefts & rights, don't make straights
fists that fight, turn me away
come & go, just don't stay
this bed wasn't made for the two of us

push & pull, don't temp fate
minute from gone, I will not wait
come & go, just don't stay
this bed wasn't made for the two of us
